One must ask the question just exactly was lost in translation during the period from 610AD until 653AD. Would sane people if given an option subject themselves to the will of Allah; when it is suggested that his brutal horrific ways written into Sharia would be come the corner stone of their lives?
Remember “Only false prophets feel the need to kill in order to spread their faith.”
Islam has hijacked Muslims for the most part in third world countries, not the other way around as suggested by the U.S. Media. Why? Because those that follow said interpretation of the Qur’an are following the will of Allah. It’s quite simple “submit or die.”
The Death of Muhammad:
Muhammad died in 632 A.D. He died as a result of being poisoned following his attack upon and conquest of the Jewish settlement of Khaibar.
The revelations Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) received were passed on mainly orally for 43 years from 610 AD until 653 AD. At that time the Quran was officially written under the command of Uthman. During the first 22 years of this period the prophet of Islam was still alive. In case of doubt his followers could have consulted him immediately. Many of them also memorized the revelations under his personal guidance.
More than 20 of those are mentioned by name in the Hadith. Among them were well know persons, such as Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Ali, Ibn Masud, Abu Huraira, Abdullah bin Abbas, Abdullah bin Amr bin al-As, Aisha, Hafsa and Umm Salama. (“Itqan” by Suyuti, I, p.124) Others went over the contents of the Quran with the prophet before his death. “Narrated Qatada: I asked Anas bin Malik: ‘Who collected the Quran at the time of the prophet?’ He replied, ‘Four, all of whom were from the Ansar: Ubai bin Ka’b, Muadh bin Jabal, Zaid bin Thabit and Abu Zaid.’” (Bukhari, VI, No.525)
