Can I ask my learned participants what is the difference in the killings described in the Bible and those undertaken in the life of prophet Muhammad pbuh in establishing a Muslim state.

Hello Doc W.
I will parrot the other reply, please be clearer with your question.
I will try to offer an answer to the question I think you are asking:
One came with clear signs from God, the other didnít.

Salam bro Khalid Zaheer
In the OT.Jews enroute to the promised land are engaged in battles and aaccording to the divine literature, kill all men, women and children. Hoe is that justified as an act instructed and ordered by God? Is the spred of Islamic bounderies in the life of prophet Mohammad pbuh on similar lines and does it also have religious basis. If not how is it different.

Both were Holy Wars or Divine retribution, the difference is that Prisoners of Holy War was Divinely permitted for our Beloved Prophets Holy expeditions but were not allowed for for the previous Holy Prophets.

firstly, According to OT the entire population including women and children and even animals were slaughtered. In some cases virgins were kept. Was this similar or different to prophet Pbuh's time?
Secondly, Was the killing preceded by itmam ul hujjah in both cases?
Thirdly, Limits of invasion, ?only to the land and people of the designated prophet?

A Divine wind destroys all and sundry and the servants of God are not motivated to Mammon
