Before getting started with the chapter’s elaboration, it would be worthwhile to provide contextual background and, hence, highlight the subject’s breadth in regards to the understanding of Muhammad as a Prophet, a General, and a Statesman. The research is also interested in comparing Muhammad’s Strategy of Warfare and King David Strategy of Warfare. It is worth mentioning that their resemblances consist of both being legendary, and admired religious and military frontrunners. They both are the central figure in the history and establishment of their respective religious traditions. Moreover, they both are related through the bloodline of Abraham. They both were shepherd prior to receiving the divine message. They were warriors, and Prophets, in addition to David being a poet and king. They both have made mistakes when acted in the human capacity for world affairs.
This research considers various aspects of warfare in early Islam and, where appropriate, compare the techniques, strategies, tactics, and attitudes of Prophet Muhammad and King David periods, up to the present day. It aims to show that, in various aspects, the first and primary Islamic methods to warfare expected later adherents of the faith will be more humane. The first Islamic approach to war should serve as a model for the present day.
Additionally, neither King David nor Prophet Muhammad was born into politics; they went from caring for livestock to prophets, and warriors. At the same time, while Muhammad in Medina, he became a statesman, and David was anointed as king of Israelites. They both worked tirelessly to protect their citizens, and they also remained humble servants of their Lord as well as of the citizens under their care. In essence, they both treated people equally according to the divine mandates of the time.
The vision of the Muhammad could be summarized as honor all humans by inviting them to serve the one God in the best manners and wisdom. This vision attracted many people; rich and poor, lords and slaves, and educated and ignorance as soon as he shared it with them.
The mission of Muhammad included three main directions. The first direction is to invite people to refrain from idol-worship and other evil deeds, and to worship one God (only Allah).
The third part of his mission was to emphasize morality and ethics. Muhammad said “I was sent to perfect morals and human behavior”. Those high moral standards of the Prophet Muhammad were the means to success to gather people around him (Al Albani, 2004)
