Islam is spread by terror (sword), money (booty), sex (immorality), and the most of all by taqiya (deception, falsehood). While many people know that Islam was spread by these, but they are unaware that “booty” was the main factor.

The Arabs found Islam attractive economically. Believers of Islam were promised not only houris in paradise in the afterlife, but they were also given a share of the booty accruing from Jihad, i.e. money and women looted in jihad. Every Muslims is a soldier of Islam, and his name was put on payroll. Caliph Umar regularized the system. Every Muslim got a share of the loot. The scale was fixed according to who is nearer to Prophet. The wives of prophets received an annual allowance of 10,000 dirhams each; the famous three hundred of the battle of Badr had 5,000 dirhams each; those of the Pledge of the Tree received 4,000 each; everyone who had converted to Islam before the Battle of Badr got 4,000 each, and their children 2,000 each, and so on, they graduated downwards to 200 dirhams. Wives, widows, and children had each their share in this classification.  Islamic Imam (commander) got from 6,000 to 9,000 dirhams; and every boy, as soon as born, received 100 dirhams each. Every Muslim had the title to be entered on the payroll, with a minimum annual allowance of ten pieces, rising with advancing age to its proper place. For full account of the Civil List (Diwan), one can refer to Tarikh-i-Tabari (Khilafat Rashida, Part I, Urdu, Nafis Academy, Karachi, Pakistan)

They were provided money, reward and given bribe for spreading and keeping faith in Islam.

There are many verses in the Quran about booty, reward etc. A few of these verse are listed below (from

14:31: “Tell My servants who have believed to perform the prayers, and to give from what We have given them, secretly and publicly, before a Day comes in which there is neither trading nor friendship.”

16:97: “Whoever works righteousness, whether male or female, while being a believer, We will grant him a good life—and We will reward them according to the best of what they used to do.”

17:9: “This Quran guides to what is most upright; and it gives good news to the believers who do good deeds, that they will have a great reward.”

35:29: “Those who recite the Book of God, and perform the prayer, and spend of what We have provided for them, secretly and publicly, expect a trade that will not fail.”

35:30: “He will pay them their dues in full, and will increase them from His bounty. He is Forgiving and Appreciative.”

Every Muslims had to give Muhammad or Islam one-fifth (20%) from whatever they looted during Jihad. Also they have to give Zakaat every year, i.e. 2.5% of annual income. These funds were used for bribing and reward. Even today, they are spending this money for terrorism, conversions and their other activity against non-Muslims.

Muslims know that money is more powerful and attractive tool in the spread of religion.
