Critically considered



Reference: Koelle, Sigismund Wilhelm, Mohammed and Mohammedanism: Critically Considered, Rivingtons, London, England, 1889, pp. 540.

In calling this the 'first' blood shed in Islam, Ibn Ishak evidently thinks of the profuse bloodshed by which it was followed, down to his own days. But how much more significative must the expression appear to us now, when we remember the countless streams of blood poured out in the cause of Islam, during all the subsequent centuries! What a contrast between Christ Who founded His religion by the shedding of His own blood, and Mohammed who established Islam by shedding the blood of others! —  page 86.
