Although one may be impressed by the sheer numbers -more of quantity than quality - of his present followers, Muhammad was a actually a totally failed man:
1In the first thirteen years of his self ordained mission, all his sermons, his verses, his harangues and the best of his efforts, produced about SEVENTY TWO followers only; many of whom were either related to him, his friends or slaves who belonged to the group. It was because of this total failure to convince and convert people PEACEFULLY that he reverted to the SWORD and VIOLENCE.
2All his plagiarising, plundering, pirating and/or perverting from the Bible,Scriptures and pagan Arabian religion and traditions were not able to convince a single ArabianJewish leader to believe in him. Most of them knew that he was a fraud and a liar. His message was neither new nor even equal to what they already had.
3 Even after he had forced many of the Arabians in the Peninsula to convert and make allegiance - under duress of course - to himself, they APOSTASIZED immediately after his death which required Abu Bakr to resort to the SWORD, SLAUGHTER andBLOODSHED once more to bring them back to 'peaceful Islam'.
