|Mohammed receiving his first revelation from the angel Gabriel (or as I believe a fallen angel). Miniature illustration on vellum from the book Jami' al-Tawarikh (literally "Compendium of Chronicles" but often referred to as The Universal History or History of the World), by Rashid al-Din, published in Tabriz, Persia, 1307 A.D. Now in the collection of the Edinburgh University Library, Scotland|
Islam swept the Arabian Peninsula, and later most of the ancient world with the blade of the sword. With it's founder's prophetic words and instructions, it's history filled with forced conversion and violence unlike any religion know to man. Present world events show us the legacy of the boy who suffered seizures, fell under the influence of supposed angelic (?) visions and took children as wives, has once again raised it's twisted bloodthirsty ideology to scourge civilized man .
