While pretending to combat intolerance &
violence based on religion and promote freedom of religion or belief,

How did Allah cast terror?
Maulana Mufti Muhammad Shafi, commenting
on 59:2, in the Mariful Qur’an, says that Moe’s companions were the
agency of terror, by cutting and burning date trees.
- So, some
of the blessed Companions, in order to anger them or cast terror
into their hearts, cut and

of Hishham’s Rescension of Sirat Rasul Alah [The
Life of Muhammad] provides more details of a disturbing

Khaybar or on the road or after he came to Medina, and he accepted their
