A Short Chronology of Early Islam

Notice closely how from Islam’s inception, war is associated with this religion. The booty from all the looting of the Muslims is how Muhammad sustained his army and himself. One fifth of all the stolen gold went to the treasury of Islam from to which Muhhamed and his wives had access.

From 623 to 777, a span of 154 years, there are 83 military conflicts involving the Muslims...and that is just to the 777.
