Read the Covenants

Here are the texts of five covenants (one of which appears in two versions) of the Prophet Muhammad with various Christian communities of his time. They demonstrate that strategic intelligence and political acumen need not always be divorced, as they so often are in our world, from moral rectitude, spiritual wisdom, and—from the standpoint of the believer at least—the manifest will of God:

The Covenant of the Prophet Muhammad with the Monks of Mount Sinai

The Covenant of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World (1630)

The Covenant of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World (1538)

The Covenant of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of Persia

The Covenant of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of Najran

The Covenant of the Prophet Muhammad with the Assyrian Christians
