A Contemporary Reading of the First Political Wars in Islam (The So-called Apostasy Wars)
Hanaa Saadoon Jabbar, Hassan Taher Melhim
Volume: 12 Issue: 4 2022
Contemporary historians and writers based on what was reported by the forerunners in the news of those who abstained from paying zakat after the death of the Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him) and the first caliph’s receipt of the ruling in what they called the wars of apostasy and that the people had renounced their religion. Some of the Companions have them, as we explained in the addendum to the research, and from here it is clear to many historians and writers that the designation of these wars that was waged against them are purely political wars and have nothing to do with religion. Thus, the news of those who abstained from paying the zakat mixed with the news of the apostates from the time of the Messenger originally, as in the news of Musaylimah, who apostatized and was derived from his apostasy after the death of the Messenger. Since the truth of history is that it is news, and the news according to the words of Ibn Khaldun, al-Tabari and others is not safe for truthfulness due to reasons including the ramifications of opinions and doctrines, trust in the transmitters, and evasion of the intentions. All the news This research briefly clarifies the news of that turbulent period of time after the death of the Prophet.
