This fake, illogical, fabricated, tales we all know as "Islamic History" serves no purpose except to insult and downgrade the status of exalted Prophet Muhammad and his noble companions. A real thinking individual will never put their trust in these pages and pages of junk written by Tabari, Ibn Katheer or Razi or what have you. They all imagined these tales to degrade Islam and its towering personalities. If the events took place as reported by Tabari, Islam would have perished in a few years. It didn't. This is because the companions did a fantastic job as expected from people who had seen, sat with, and learned from the company of the exalted Prophet of Allah.
Stupid blind beliefs in these fairy tales of "Islamic history" is perhaps the MAIN reason why Islam is viewed so negatively today, let alone the ONLY reason why we have scores of sects in Islam--Sunnis of many hues, Shi'as of many hues, Qadianis, NOI, and what have you.
Had Muslims taken their guidance directly from Allah's Book--the perfectly preserved Qur'an--they would have been well regarded today, perhaps ruling everywhere today with justice and equity and peace for all mankind. They, instead, settled for the dirt in the dust, rather than for the stars of the heavens Allah had bestowed to them. How stupid can one get?
