If we our sincerely looking for peace we must dig across OUR history records and agree on that which cannot be denied. Its denial certainly is an answer to our wish, plan, goal hope and prayer. Can mankind have something but that which it strives for?
Mrs. Gloria Aroyo a one time president of the Philippines has been charged embezzling 9 million dollars on state lottery funds. I believe she is a Christian. She is supposed to be guided by the written and oral law including what Jesus said on morality etc.
A follower of Muhammad Rasulullah is supposed to follow the written and oral law on those things that are decent and wholesome.
We do not know how much Isaac, Jacob, Moses and all the prophets of the Children of Israel left behind after their death. A rabbi gave a nice and laudable commentary on the wealth of Solomon. There is nothing attractive in one filing wealth.
Muhammad left behind an armor awed to a Jew.
Abubakar had only 3 dinar at his death bed. he asked his daughter what she intends to do with the dinar. She wanted to buy his shroud. He disapproved that and told her to use them in feeding the poor. His shroud should be his cloth.
Umar left behind a debt of about 6 thousand dinar. His family had to settle that amount.
Uthman was accused of embezzlement. He argued that he had 200 trading camels at the beginning of revelation and that he has none now. As a head of state he could have more than that.
I do not know about Ali ibn Abi Talib.
Phillip Kyuri Hitti a Lebanese Christian said, "The revenue of the Islamic state never dwindled. It kept on increasing except under the administration of those Umayyad kings who objected to the Shari'a of Muhammad. At the time of Umar ibn Abdul'aziz there was enough wealth that nobody was given zakkat. He was no better than the common man. He refused to use the excess of funds in the treasury to perform the holy Pilgrimage.
Wonderfully! The executive jet (Qaswa) of the holy apostle was used by all. Likewise that of Umar bin Khattab.
This is not restricted only to the followers of Muhammad for Allah says following that example says in Qur'an 3:110, "And had the People of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would be better for them..."
The expenditure on Air force 1 is above 300 million dollars per annum. Yet two days a 77 year old was shown spending the night in her van in Florida. That is the meaning of Western civilization, equality, freedom of speech and civilization. had the Muslim Umma instituted the Caliphate they would certainly be jealous of that!
