Talk:Expedition of Usama bin Zayd
Reconsider some points.
Alot of details aren't true , and should be reconsidered by any administrator or high-ranked user , the article writer wants to prove that Islam came by sword , and Mohammed was a killer , and that doesn't fit with the Wikipedia compatible rules and terms , thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HaZeM123 (talk • contribs) 06:00, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
"Abu Yusuf mentioned a counter tradition about the instructions of Abu Bakr, which claimed that Abu Bakr ordered his commanders to lay waste to every village where he did not hear the call to prayer."
This statement by Joseph Schacht is very misleading. This was ordered by Abu Bakr only during the War of Riddah(War of Apostates), in order to clarify the status of the Arab tribes before fighting them during these period.They(the Muslim Army) would make Adhaan (call of prayer) and would wait for a returning Adhaan from the (apostated)Arab tribes. And they also didn't "lay waste" to villages where the call of prayers was not heard.Or else the tribes of Bani Amr,Bani Taghlib would have cease to exist(these Arab tribes were mainly Christians,who helped As-Sajjah, the Prophetess, in their slaughter of the Muslims of Ar-Rabab).
Those Arab tribes who have apostate are subdue after they surrender and only their chiefs are to be killed while the remaining of them are to be remained in exile and aren't allowed occupy any work except agricultural work and farming.It was only during the time of Umar was this ban are lifted upon them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 03:13, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
