3nd Course of Restoration (Continuation
of National Level)
Foundation of Substance
The victory of faith (at Badr) allowed
the Medianan Clan to assume the position of Abel on the
Clan level. It now became their responsibility to extend
the restoration foundation to the national level under the
guidance of Prophet Mohammad. This they did through living
and teaching Islam with forgiving love, patience, and humble
service to all the surrounding Clans.
The surprise success of
the Muslims in the Battle of Badr had a startling effect
on the many neighboring tribes. It started them thinking
that the Muslims were helped by somekind of a Supreme Being
and resulted in many of them embracing Islam. Over the next
6 years, thousands of believers entered the Islamic faith
because of the many victories gained against formidable
attackers and through the patience teaching of Mohammad's
disciples. This growth continued until finally the Islamic
Clan was ready to return to Mecca and subjugate the Satan
controlled idol worshipers.
In December 629 A.D. 10,000
Moslems marched to Mecca to put an end to Satan's constant
attacks on Islam and to establish a God-centered-nation.
They did not encamp until they reached Marr-uz-Zahran, a
place only a few hours journey from Mecca. The Prophet then
ordered huge fires to be lit in every camp. This gave the
Quraish the impression that the strength of the Muslim army
was considerably greater than it really was and they consequently
surrendered without any attempt at resistance. It was a
peaceful conquest without the shedding of blood.
the city and assuring the people of no revenge, Mohammad promptly
proceeded to the Kaba and cleaned it of it's idols. This Mohammad
did by touching each idol of stone with his stick (which represented
the stick that Moses struck evil with) and by reciting the
|"Say the Truth
has (now) Arrived, and Falsehood perished: For Falsehood
is (by it's nature) Bound to perish." (Bani Israil
|Next, the Prophet gave a
sermon about the beautiful unity of God and about the underlying
principle of unity between amn and man (about universal brotherhood).
He then forgave everyone of their sins against Islam, irregardless
of the graveness; for example Hinda (who ate the liver of
Hamza - the Prophet's dear uncle). This unparalleled forgiving
love was something behond the Quraish people's wildest dreams
or expectations. This resulted in most of the Mecca Clan embracing
Islam and humblihng themselves to Mohammad and the Medinan
Clan's leadership - thus establishing the foundation of substance
on the National Level.
the year following the Medinan Clan's successful entrance
into Mecca, Mohammad firmly secured the foundation of substance
for the National Level Restoration. This he did by receiving
representatives from surrounding clans and absorbing them
into the newly rorming Islamic nation. A few larger tribes
were subjugated with force when they tried to block the forming
of this nation centered on God.
Also during this period
many governing principles were revealed to integrate and
unify these many different clans into one strong, God-serving
nation.Thus, after three 7-year courses (21 years), Prophet
Mohammad succeeded in restoring a nation to God.
Kingdom Level Restoration
From the foundation of restoration of a nation to God, Mohammad
next proceeded to spread Islam to the Kingdom Level. This
he did during the last year of his life by sending representatives
to surrounding nations. However, the work of uniting many
nations around Islam had to be completed by the Caliphs,
for the Prophet Mohammad died 1 1/2 years after beginning
the Kingdom Level REstoration (of natural causes). We will
study this and the rest of Islamic History parallel to Christian
History, for from this time Of Mohammad till today, God
has been working through two main brotherhood religions
to restore the world.
Lessons Learnt From Mohammad's
- All of humkind is invited
to the Kingdom of Heaven and it is up to each person to
choose to follow the Prophet or not.
- One must be prepared
to sacrifice all to go God's way of life.
- Victory will come to
the righteous man when he has entrusted his life in humble
service and complete faith to God
- Humankind must not just
wait for Satan to attack first and then defend himself,
but each person must wage an active war (Holy Jehad) within
himself to remove all evil bases Satan can use to pull
him away from God.
- God's will (the establishment
of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth) is absolute and the
work to accomplish such is passed from one Prophet to
another until such is accomplished.
- We must be prepared to
leave our family and loved ones if they prevent us from
living a truely God-centered way of life, just as Mohammad
had to flee Mecca to Medina to have the freedom to follow
God's way of life.
- The more you love God
the more you must be prepared to suffer, endure persecution
and serve your accusing brother.
- God will forgive the
greatest sinner if he humbles himself in repentance before
