Over the past 3 weeks I’ve spent a significant amount of time researching through the Biography of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and putting together a number of tables which record the statistics of each battle that took place during his lifetime. This was due to a number of articles written by Islamaphobes which depicted the Battles of the Muslims at that time as if they were monstrous massacres numbering in the hundreds of thousands. This insinuation for anyone that knows Islamic History and the population statistics of that time would find these grossly exaggerated claims quite amusing.
It should be known that the tribes in the Arabian Peninsula in the 7th century were not very large, and usually consisted of only a few hundred people. At the time the Quraish, which were considered one of the largest tribes in Arabia, could only muster around 3000 from their own tribe to fight during the Battle of Uhud. So if you were to take that number of 3000 and factor in the Women, Children and Elderly (which collectively is about 3x the number of Males) then one could estimate that the whole population of Meccah didn’t exceed 10,000 people.

DUBAI // Twenty-three young African footballers converted to Islam at the end of a two-month training camp in Dubai.
The men, all in their twenties, are members of a football academy for poor, homeless and orphaned youngsters in Cameroon.
“It is amazing that at an age when most people just want to play and have fun, these young men were searching for faith and enlightenment,” said Javeed Khateeb, senior religious adviser at IACAD, the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai.
“This is the first time we’ve had such a large number of people from the same group wanting to convert.

According to an Egyptian News website, one of the Criminal Judges who had sentenced a number of Muslim Brotherhood Members to Death has now suffered from a massive stroke and has been taken to the Hospital.
Egypt has over the past year seen a number of these judges hand out insane sentences for simply protesting against the overthrow of President Mohammad Morsi. A number of human rights organizations and Western nations have criticized the obvious over exaggerated rulings coming from the Judiciary in Egypt. Not only have the sentences been extreme beyond measure, but also the living conditions withine the prisons have been known to be far beyond anything remotely acceptable even for the Middle East. Since the crackdown of the Muslim Brotherhood by General Sissi the prisons in Egypt have become overcrowded and many prisons who become sick or have suffered beatings from police guards are not given proper medical care.
So with that said I am sure that many Egyptians have smiled at the notion that this Tyrant of a man will soon be meeting his maker and will taste retribution for all the crimes he help commit against his own people.
