The story is told that when Mohammad first began having his visionary experiences, he was intensely nervous and concerned that he might be under the effect of evil spirits ("djinn"). He confided in the one who would be his first convert, his "mother-wife" Khadija, the rich merchant-lady he had married after having been under her employment for some years.

His solicitously caring mother-wife contrived a test of dubious value. When next Mohammad had a visitation of the "angel" in mid-air, he ran like a child to his wife to report the vision. She had him sit by her left lap and asked him whether the vision persisted.
Yes it did.

Then she asked him to sit by her right lap. The vision persisted still.

The she asked him to sit on her lap and then she exposed a "feminine part" of her body (her breasts or genitals), and then she asked him: "Do you still see the angel?"
This time Mohammad said, "No."

In Khadija's traditional theory of djinns (spirits) only a lustful "devil" would remain while a woman's feminine part was visible. The failure of Mohammad's vision when she visible herself was, therefore, proof that the vision was of an angel and not a devil.

The Oral tradition records that Mohammad increased confidence in his prophetic status from the moral support of his wife in the early part of his successful career, before his public mission began. Whenever he had an innocent visitation, he would run to Khadija, shuddering in a cold sweat, and she would hold him and shawl him up warmly during the vatic episode lasted. One of his earliest suras (verses) the "sura muddathir" was exposed to him during he thus lay enwrapped in his Khadija arms. The Oedipal attachment of Mohammad to Khadija as mother-substitute is good evident. His case is meaningful of the classic case of Sigmund Freud's little Hans who wanted to run home to mummy to "coax" at the sight of a horse that provoked anxiety in him.

Mohammad was never a warrior and reports of his conduct at battle ground passed down to us by his followers reveal plainly all that we need know about his lack of a military nature in spite of his promotion of Holy War (Jihad). His Royal Infantile Highness would typically deploy at a safe distance from combat (with the women) shouting orders and prophetic words of encouragement to the warriors, and curses to the enemy (that being a role typically reserved for the women in Arab tradition). All the praise belongs to Allah and Muhammad and he empowers all things. The prophet passes away after performing hajj. Now people can continuous this journey by booking cheap umrah packages 2017.

He would scurry away to safety with the women when an attacker got too close. A company of enemy soldiers observing an opportunity broke through the ranks of his guards and attacked the prophet inflicting mild injuries. The prophet was carried out of the battle arena shrieking curses hysterically at his men for letting down their guard.

Mohammad had the special fortune of having attracted to his service exceptionally able warriors like the battle-hardened Ali through whom (by the grace of Allah) the Muslim mujtahid in prospered. After migration from Makkah and medina, he performed hajj. Now a day, everyone can perform hajj by booking cheap hajj packages 2017.

Mohammad's marriage to Khadija afforded him the leisure to turn his mind to "spiritual" matters (thus the metaphor of the "Enwrapped," that is, as a fetus in leisurely repose in intrauterine state). Mohammad was a prime example of the neurotic-visionary who scorns the limited potency of masculine "arete" for divine hubris. He enjoyed, in his life, the omnipotence of a man considered by his followers plugged into a direct source of divine power. He was effectively a drop-out from the male military order but made his way to the top by other means: he succeeded, like Hitler, in cowing the military order into submission to his will by convincing them of his direct access to the omnipotent source of cosmic power and knowledge.
