from the beginning of the Khilafah the Khaleefahs matched the way of life of Rasoul Allah (saw). We can describe their lifestyle as difficult and close to the people. They were never arrogant despite Allah (swt) giving them much power. The Khulafah thereafter continued but in time acquired much wealth and power. They had a great reputation from the non-Muslims who would say of them that although they were the kings of the Muslims they ate stale bread and they would wander by foot around their subjects to see if they needed help despite having conquered the east and the west of the Earth He is referring to Umar Al-Khattab (ra) here as it has been narrated that when he conquered Bait Al-Maqdis he was in his tent and upon opening his bag Omar (ra) produced an old dried piece of bread which he proceeded to dampen with water before eating it. It was said of him that we have never seen anyone like this.
This situation continued until the time of Muawiyyah who agreed that the Khilafah must spread everywhere and upon consulting the Ulema he adopted the opinion that because part of the preparation for jihad was to strike fear into and to shake the enemies or non-Muslim kings it is allowed to create a high profile image of the Khilafah until the structure of the Khilafah changed from what they had to a very strong kingdom type of Khilafah. This continued until the kings of that era began to say that they wanted to be like the Khilafah (especially during the Abbasid period).
During the time of Mutasim (35H) a Roman king took a prisoner from among the family of Rasoul Allah (saw) whose name was Fatima. Fatima pleaded for the help of Mutasim who said no one could help her except the one who had ablak (a rare expensive type of white horse) since the Romans boasted of having 60 of them. Mutasim ordered his Amirs to ride only these horses and when he eventually rode to free Fatima Mutasim did so at the head of 4000 ablak. When freed he asked Fatima to testify to her great, great, great grand-father Rasoul Allah (saw) on the day of judgement that Mutasim came to save her with 4000 ablak (white thoroughbred horse) and that he was at the front of them.
Ibn Kathir narrated that when the Roman ambassadors came in 305H during the time of the Khilafah of Mutadir, the Khalifah prepared a reception which consisted of 160,000 fighters on horse-back, 700 assistants of the government department and 7000 servants surrounding the palace (4000 white and 3000 black). He decorated the palace of the Khilafah with weapons taken from other nations.
The floor was covered by carpets consisting of 22,000 pieces of basut (1 basut is 10 Foot by 10 Foot in area). There were 38,000 curtains, 12000 of which were covered with gold embroidery and in the middle of the palace was a large tree of gold with silver branches. In addition there were 18,000 horse-carts and 100 live lions together with their trainers around the palace. When the guests arrived it took them between Zohr and Asr inside the palace to reach the Khalifah.
Imam Qudai described the same thing, he said: this continued until the time of Khilafah of Al-Mutaqi who said that he wanted to maintain the high profile image but that he wanted the governors to have it as well. He said every governor of the state needs to ensure that no one ever feels that he wants to leave before his application is heard.
In the time of Bani Buway in Baghdad the name of the Khalifah was put on the Dinar, 5,000 silver Dirham was allocated for him every day for personal use and all the khateebs were to mention the Khalifah in their Khutbah. In addition 2,000 silver Dirham were to be allocated for every governor per day.
In the time of Muawiyyah abed to carry the Khalifah was made due to his ill health. This however became permanent, it was adopted for subsequent Khulafah and in time became a carriage 7 arms high.
The mattress used to be well decorated upon which the Khalifah would sit and the Khalifah would be allowed to carry something which belonged to the Messenger Muhammad (saw). He would pray publicly at the head of the Jamaa and a mobile Mihrab would stand before him so that the citizens knew where the Khalifah was. The mimber was decorated with jewellery. Othman Ibn Affan (ra) was the first to have a curtain around him where he prayed outside of which stood soldiers from his army.
The Khalifahs name used to be sown into many clothes and curtains in gold and silver and this became a common sign of the Khulafah. Another custom was that the new Khalifah would address the Nation upon receiving the bayah and on every Jumaa and this continued up until the 7th century hijri when a khateeb was delegated for this.).
The first Khalifah to receive dua from the mimber was Imam Ali (ra) .
The logo for the Khalifah was a ring at the beginning, it is narrated in Bukhari and Muslim that the Sahabah said to Rasoul Allah (saw) The kings do not read a letter unless it is stamped with authority and so the The Prophet asked them to make one for him. Abu Bakr (ra) wore the ring and held the Prophets cloak and stick. Othman (ra) lost the ring in a well and so after this each Khalifah had his own ring with his own name on it (Up until the time of Imam Kalkashandi).
It is narrated in Ibn Kathirs Kitab AI-Tarikh that the Prophet (saw) gave his cloak Burda to Kaab Ibn Suwayr who never gave it to anyone and that Muawiyyah brought it from his son for 10,000 silver Dirhams. The Burda of the Prophet (saw) used to be black with white lines.
The stick Khatib of the Prophet (saw) continued to be carried by the Khalifahs through the time of Bani Abbas up until the time of Imam Kalkashandi. The Khalifah clothes were special, for example the sleeves used to be 20 hand spans rolled back up until the time of Ayub.
The flag of the Khalifah was green with the Shahadah on it although Bani Abbas had a black flag. (NB. Atturturk was the first to put a crescent on the flag after a suggestion made by a Jew, which has led to Orientalists accusing Muslims of worshipping the moon.
The uniform of the Khalifah was properly established at the time of Bani Umayyah. Yazid bin Abdil Malik Bin Marwan used to give garments to the subjects who visited him. His store of garments was carried on 600 rolls of fabric and he ordered 10,000 shirts to be made annually as gifts. From Imam Al- Tharariba it is narrated that when Mansur died he had 95,000,000,000, silver Dirhams to give to the people stored in the State department.
Imam AI-Souri narrates that Haroun AI-Rashid had 100,000,000, golden Dinar at the time of his death. He left behind wealth the like of which has not been seen since.
The value of the jewellery, furniture and camels etc. came to 100,025,000 Dinar over and above the building assets.
Ibrahim Ibn Nur, a top Muslim historian, narrates that the Khalifah Mutad left in the finance department at the time of his death:
100,000,000 Golden Dinar
20,000,000 Dinar worth of jewellery
20,000,000 Dinar worth of Kuswa i.e. cloth
3,000 Dinar Amana
65,000 Clothes for the administrative staff
1,000 Abaya for the ladies
1,000,000,800 pieces of jewellery
18,000 tubes for letters each worth 2 golden Dinar
18,000 Armenian carpets each 10 foot by 10 foot
It is narrated that Al-Mamun allocated 2,000,000 Dinar in one day consisting of 500,000 Dinar for his brother Mutasim for his appointment in Morocco, 500,000 Dinar for Abbas as a fighter, 300,000 Dinar for Abdullah Bin Tahir to fight in Northern Iraq and 700,000 Dinar to the leaders of the army. It took Al-Rukhji, the Chancellor, 6 months to distribute this.
Al-Mutasim left cash in the palace of the Khilafah of 8,025,000 golden Dinar plus 18,000 horses all equipped with carts. Al -Muktadir left 68,000,000,000 golden Dinar when he passed away.
When Al-Mamun got married to the daughter of Al-Hasan Bin Sahil 26,000 balah chefs fed the people for 40 days. Carpets made of gold string covered the palace floor and a huge pot carried by 20 men was filled with jewellery, silver, gold and diamonds and whenever women entered to the Khalifah he let them fill their bags. Umm Jafer and her other daughters had the task of distributing the jewellery but the pot was left for 40 days and no one took from it. Women worked for over three months making a candle which stayed alight for 40 days and weighed 110 Kilos.
The leaders of the Army entered and 4.000,000 dinar were placed for them form which each collected money with their soldiers. One scholar Al-I Imam Al-Babuni said 0 Amir Al-Mumineen, you give Allahs wealth as if you feel no shortage and whatever you give in this life will be rewarded in the hereafter. The general public had trays filled with gold and silver, some would get their servants to carry it. The Khalifah freed 1,000 slaves (i.e. he said whoever has a slave let him come to me and I will pay to free him) and he ordered 1,000 carts to deliver the people home.
Just who was the "Jew" responsible for their "flag"?
Surely a "Jew" of such importance had a name.
It is OK to lie to infidels.
Islam is the religion of Satan, the Father of lies.
I don’t believe a word of it.
Just read on another thread that there are two Shariah4America sites. One is spelled Shariah and the other is spelled Sharia. On of them is a parody site. I think it’s this one.
Wow, that guy redistributes wealth like a true Democrat! (None of it his, none of it earned.)
As always, I'd consider the sources. ataturk+jew
BTW, for the non conspiracy minded, the source is likely Mohammed’s splitting of the moon as recounted in the Quran. He did stuff like that.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Please include me on your list - thanks!

Tonight, Greta VanSusteren had the Religion Editor on, Bob Smietana, discussing this. He’s a liberal, pro-Muslim idiot who’s tried to smear such brave patriots as Frank Gaffney, Steve Emerson, Brigitte Gabriel and others, even publishing the tax returns of their organizations. The fact that The Tennessean keeps him as religion/faith editor says a lot about that paper, IMO.
