Islam’s Violent Origins: Muhammed

Zach Dunn

During the first decade of the founding of Islam, Muhammed preached his new concept of a singular god, Allah to his fellow tribesmen in Mecca. During this roughly 10 year period of Islam’s beginning, it was semi-peaceful. But unlike Christianity which had both begun and spread through peaceful means, Muhammed had a very hard time spreading this new “faith” to his fellow Meccans. 

After facing opposition to his new teaching almost a decade after he began to write the Quran, Muhammed and his followers were forced to flee Mecca and eventually settled in Medina. It was there that Mohammed first started to put together a militia of his followers.  After settling a feud between two different houses, many in Medina and those who had followed him pledged their loyalty to Muhammed. They stated their willingness to fight his enemies and conquer lands in the name of Allah.

Barely 15 years after Islam’s founding, the followers of Muhammed were sharpening their swords and readying their spears.    

Muhammed started slow, that is he and his followers started raiding caravans like common criminals. Most of their raids were carried out on foot by those who had followed him from Mecca some years before. The first caravan they took, they approached it dressed as humble travelers and leapt upon the guards. 

What followed next over the course of several years, beginning with the Battle of Badr, was local Muslim conquests of small towns until they eventually were powerful enough to conquer Mecca and solidify Muslim dominance in the region.  

These early Muslim conquests went on to set the pace of what has become one of the most Militant, and violent ideologies ever to crawl the face of the earth. 

Opposite to Christ’s “love one another” and, “Do Good to your enemies”; Mohamed wrote in Q8:60 “to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know.”

Also penned by Muhammed is, Q9:29 which instructs the followers of Islam to: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

Muhammed and his first followers practiced what they preached.
