As my friend Charles Mudede noted, these graphs say it all (courtesy of The Sunlight Foundation):
Please see the real meaning in modern English language as the right to actively use arms in a bonafide[declared war] on behalf of ones country NOT AS A MURDERING OF INNOCENTS! I think that mental & Physical tests are urgently required for all senators before they are sworn in ;& a suitably strict control on murdering”plots”used for films & cartoons! Death is no joke,& cannot be repaired ZS

you should read this article…7 errors you have made in your book has been pointed out!. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/qasim-rashid/7-things-about-prophet-mu_b_2563008.html
You should re-read the article you reference. It doesn’t say the author made 7 errors. Rashid titles his column “7 Things About Prophet Muhammad: A Clarification ”
2. He married up — and for love.
Hazleton accurately summarizes Prophet Muhammad’s marriage to Hazrat Khadija, but I offer two minor matters of clarification. …
3. His first reaction to becoming a Prophet? Doubt and despair.
Hazleton accurately states Prophet Muhammad’s fear upon the Angel Gabriel’s appearance to him. …”
On number 7. the post says “Hazleton is incorrect both when she states that “he died without designating a successor,” and that Prophet Muhammad “paved the way for the divisiveness between Sunni and Shiite that persists today.” …
The fact that things didn’t deteriorate for 30 years, a very short time given the slow evolution of things in the ancient world, doesn’t prove anything. I would give Ms Hazelton a pass on this
So, she is wrong about some things, but not 7.
well khadija (R.A) was the one who proposed marraige to our prophet (pbuh) seeing his honesty,kindness and his caring attitude towards the needy & poor..love happened much later….and trust me 30 yrs is not a short period of time. 🙂
