YOGIC SPIRITUALITY AND ISLAM
No doubt some of the violence found in the life of Mohammed was part of his time and culture. Mohammed was often oppressed and attacked, nut the higher degree of compassion for all people-regardless of their beliefs-cannot be attributed to him. According to the Sufis, Mohammed emphasized that there was an inner holy war and an outer holy war, the former being work on oneself and the latter being fighting for the religion, and that the inner holy war was more important.

Yet he never gave up the need for outer holy war, which became a war of world conquest for his successors according to the intention Mohammed himself set forth to spread his faith to the Greek and Persian empires and conquer them if necessary. Mohammed's second character trait that is not part of the yogic spiritual approach was his approach to sexuality. Mohammed at twenty-five married a woman of forth and was married to her until her death twenty-five years later. He was a good husband (though not a yogi who had transcended sexual desire).
