The March of Islam through Jihad
 

 

Earlier, as founder of the new Islamic nation, the prophet had to engage in risky speculations. He ventured to free his society from dependence on charity and goodwill of his sympathisers. Through jihad, he launched successful campaigns within the Arab Peninsula against his enemies and their trade caravans. He controlled trade routes and dictated his terms to guarantee the safety of their passage and their merchandise. His community became loaded with possessions and became abundantly rich. Spreading the message of Allah and accumulating wealth through jihad, such campaigns became acceptable and a daily affair. Islam indoctrinated jihad in its religion and has since become a legitimate requirement and a religious duty. To acquire wealth through jihad and use it in the service and promotion of Islam has since grown into a strong Islamic obligation, acknowledging it informally as the sixth pillar of Islam.
