Myth vs Fact #50

Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace. 8:41 And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad)], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) – And Allâh is Able to do all things.
Tafsir: Ruling on the Spoils of War (Ghanimah and Fai )
The Order to fight to eradicate Shirk and Kufr
Bottom Line: Allocation of spoils is not a subject relevant to a religion of peace. The existence of 8:1, 8:41, 33:27 & 48:20 stands in evidence of the fact that Islam is a war machine, not a religion.
