Muhammad was born in the month of Rabi'al-awwal in 570. He belonged to the Banu Hashim, one of the prominent families of Mecca, although it seems not to have been prosperous during Muhammad's early lifetime. Muhammad's father, Abdullah, died almost six months before he was born. At the age of six Muhammad lost his mother Amina to illness and he became fully orphaned. He was subsequently brought up for two years under the guardianship of his paternal grandfather Abd al-Muttalib, of the Banu Hashim Clan of the Quraysh tribe. When he was eight years of age his grandfather also died. Muhammad now came under the care of his uncle Abu Talib, the new leader of Banu Hashim. Muhammad's guardians saw that he did not starve to death, but it was hard for them to do more for him, especially as the fortunes of the clan of Hashim seem to have been declining at that time. While still in his teens, Muhammad began accompanying his uncle on trading journeys to Syria gaining some experience in commercial career; the only career open to Muhammad as an orphan.
At some point Muhammad adopted the practice of meditating alone for several weeks every year in a cave near Mecca. In one of his visits to the Mount Hira, the angel called Jibreel began communicating with him in the year 610. Upon receiving his first revelations Muhammad was deeply distressed and contemplated throwing himself off the top of a mountain but the spirit moved closer and told him that he has been chosen as a messenger of God.
Mohammed taught that there is a Creator called Allah and all those who practice the Way of Allah would go to a place called Jannath.
The good Dhivehin who manage to go to Jannath shall be given 72 houris (beautiful, angelic-like female creatures of tender age, having large breasts which are round pointed, and not inclined to dangle. Their virginity is renewed each day. No matter at what age he had died, when he is admitted into paradise, he will become a thirty-year-old, and shall not age any further and they will be given the strength of a hundred men to eat, drink, feel desire and have sexual intercourse by Allah.
Maldivians have designed a nation that is only for people who believe this and ardently desire to have unlimited sex with these heavenly maidens who will be so beautiful, pure and transparent that the marrow of the bones of their legs will be seen through the flesh. When a Maldivian who has managed to get to Jannath desires a beauty, as soon as he can think it, he will have intercourse with them as desired. (Thats all my friend Ibrahim can think about even now!)
- "A cult is a group or movement exhibiting a great or excessive devotion or dedication to some person, idea or thing and employing unethically manipulative techniques of persuasion and control (e.g. isolation from former friends and family, debilitation, use of special methods to heighten suggestibility and subservience, powerful group pressures, information management, suspension of individuality or critical judgment, promotion of total dependency on the group and fear of [consequences of] leaving it, etc) designed to advance the goals of the group's leaders to the actual or possible detriment of members, their families, or the community."
When you have to believe this stuff about houris and jinns to be a citizen, Maldives is best described as a cult.
