Does the Qur’an say Sun sets in murky water? A Reply to Muslims


I wrote an article long time ago on this particular issue that ‘Quran says Sun sets in murky water’, which can be read here. I believe all the critics of Islam have written on this issue and many have successfully proved to Muslims too that there are scientific errors in Qur’an. But recently an Islamic website propagated that there is no such error in Quran in hope that those who are unaware of this error may never know what the truth is. In this article I’ll quote the relevant part of the claim and I’ll answer to those claims using authentic and canonical scriptures of Islam.

CLAIM: “The Sun sets in murky water according to the Qur’an”. This is a common question thrown at Muslims to prove a scientific error in the Holy Qur’an and disqualify it to be the Word of God. It stems from the following verse:

“Till, when he reached the setting-place of the sun, he found it setting in a muddy spring, and found a people thereabout. We said: O Dhu’l-Qarneyn! Either punish or show them kindness.” Quran 18:86

REPLY: This is a common question thrown at Muslims because, when any Non-Muslim read Quran for the first time, they do not expect  the owner of this universe ‘Allah’ to make such a silly mistake in his book, which he calls a guidance to mankind. Even if we ask a child of 2nd grade to write an essay on ‘Setting place of Sun’, even they won’t write such a statement, then how come the Lord himself utter such thing? Apart from this Quran in multiple places calls itself to be a clear book (5:15), which is most easily understood (44:58 , 54:22 , 54:32, 54:40), explained in detail (6:114) etc, but still there are millions of people who believe that Quran has errors, or they misunderstand Quran as per Muslims.

CLAIM: Firstly, we have to realize that the Holy Qur’an is not a book to teach us science. It primarily calls humanity to their Creator and offers guidance to on how to do the same. It gives glad tidings for the righteous and warns against sin. Occasionally it may refer to some historical and scientific information or natural phenomena, but that is only supplementary. Even that information is provided to enable us to reflect upon it and recognize the Lordship and Majesty of God. Same is the case with mentioning the stroy of Dhul Qarnain.

REPLY: This part is quite interesting, because the author says that Quran is not a book of science, but still I would say unfortunately millions of Muslims work day and night to find a single statement in Quran which is consistent with established science. So that they can brag about their Holy Book and fool some people to convert into Islam. If we visit to any Islamic site, there will be a complete section or category of  ‘Science in Quran’,  still when a contradictory statement is caught in Quran, they claim it to be book of SIGNS and not SCIENCE. Anyways, I don’t have the problem with what Muslims call their Holy Book to be, but yes I don’t agree that Quran gives glad tidings for righteous and warns against sin, because Quran is the only religious book in face of earth, which calls its followers to kill those who reject  Islam or are Non-Muslims, and the recent case is of U.K soldier beheading. Quran exhorts Muslims to do sin which is ironical to what the author has claimed above. The historical information are there in Quran, because the tribe of Muhammad demanded him to give some evidence of his Prophet-hood, to which he replied by telling stories of past.

CLAIM: The present verse in question, is not at all trying to make a scientific statement. Therefore, to evaluate it in scientific terms would be gross injustice to it. This verse is simply referring to a person’s (in this case Dhul Qarnain) vision/perception. In other words, the verse is not saying that the sun, at the referred place, used to set in a murky lake; on the contrary, it is informing us that Dhul Qarnain reached a place on his westward campaign, where it appeared to him as if the sun was setting in a murky lake.The Arabi texts uses the word Wajada وَجَدَ .

REPLY: OK, for the sake of argument I accept that the verse in question is not trying to make a scientific statement, but even we can’t ignore that unintentionally the verse contradicts an established scientific fact. In easy words, the verse  in question has some part in it, which is against science. Also, as we know that Quran is a verbatim word of God, so it would be injustice to not evaluate each and every verse of Quran in scientific terms. Because if we find even a single error,contradiction,mistake,pseudo-science in Quran, then it is easy to prove that Quran is not from God, but man-made. If we look into the context of the verse in question, we find that few people of Mecca asked Muhammad about Dhul Qarnain, because they doubted Muhammad’s prophet hood claim and they wanted to check his knowledge about the person. On this occasion Allah came to help him and he recited Muhammad the whole story of Dhul Qarnain (not really, Muhammad made this entire story by himself, and he wrote the entire Quran too). So even if the story is informing us about Dhul Qarnain vision, still if Allah informed it, it has to be scientifically and historically correct.

Also the verse (Quran 18:86) talks about a specific place where the sun sets. The word used in Quran is maghriba which means ‘(the) setting place’ of sun. So we can’t take west in general, Allah is talking about a specific place where sun sets, where Dhul Qarnain reached. The Arabic word Wajada وَجَدَ  used in the verse means ‘and he found’ in literal sense.

CLAIM: This word has been defined in an authoritative  lexicon of Qur’anic terms Mufradat al-Quran of Imam Raghib Isfahani as follows

وجود بإحدى الحواس الخمس 

Perceiving something using one of the five senses.The same meaning is given by the Lexicon of Edward William Lane. Edward William Lane’s Arabic-English Lexicon p. 2924

REPLY: Again I don’t have any problem with how Edward William Lane’s Arabic-English Lexicon defines the word, because the meaning is simply proving me correct.  The meaning as per dictionary is:

Taken from the very Islamic site, I am replying.

Taken from the very Islamic site, I am replying.

Oxford dictionary defines the word perceived as: to become aware of, know, or identify by means of the senses: so it hardly matters how Dhul Qarnain became aware of, knew, identified by his senses, that sun sets in muddy pool, the verse is still unscientific, which makes Quran a word of man. This is not all, as per the word to word new Quran dictionary, Wajada means ‘and he found’ (literally). The very word is also used in Quran 18:77 where it is used in very real sense.

CLAIM: What we find is that Qur’an has used the word from the perspective of Zulqarnain and merely describes his perception and how it appeared in his sight. The description is very much valid for on a shore that is how sunset actually seems.

REPLY: As I said before that even if it was from perspective of Dhul Qarnain, still it has to be scientifically correct as the all knowing Lord of world is reciting it. The author uses a picture of Sun setting in horizon to prove his case, but it is not that simple. We can’t take example of sun setting in shore, because the water body as per the verse 18:86 in Quran is not SEA or OCEAN, but a small pool or say muddy spring, which cannot produce the effect of sun setting in horizon. The word used for the water body in the verse isʿaynin’, which as per all almost all Arabic dictionary means ‘spring, pool or small lake’, so even by our wildest imagination we can’t make it a SEA or OCEAN, where the sun setting in horizon can be observed.  The problem increases when the Prophet of Islam says the same thing in one of his Hadith:

Abu Dharr said: I was sitting behind the Apostle of Allah who was riding a donkey while the sun was setting. He asked: Do you know where this sets? I replied: Allah and his Apostle know best. He said: It sets in a spring of warm water. (Sunan Abu Dawud, Hadith 3991)

CLAIM: Classical Muslim exegets have always understood this verse to mean what I have explained. You can check up authoritative commentaries of Baidawai, Ibn Kathir, Alusi, Jalalayn, etc. They all say that is an eloquent description of Dhul Qarnain’s perception.

REPLY: I don’t have much to say on this, because most of the times Muslims them-self claim that Tafsirs are not the authority of Islam, and they may be wrong. The earlier scholars of Islam interpreted the verses as Muhammad explained them, and one of them is Ibn Abbas, who was companion and cousin of Prophet himself, he wrote about the verse:-

(Till, when he reached the setting place of the sun) where the sun sets, (he found it setting in a muddy spring) a blackened, muddy and stinking spring; it is also said that this means: a hot spring, (and found a people thereabout) these people were disbelievers: (We said: O Dhu’l-Qarnayn!) We inspired him (Either punish) either kill them until they accept to believe that there is no deity except Allah (or show them kindness) or you pardon them and let them be.

So if we have to believe Ibn Abbas then the verse is scientifically wrong, I also quoted the words of Prophet himself, which again is scientifically wrong. Muslims are insulting their own Prophet and Allah by not preaching and following what their Prophet preached and their god revealed. It Blasphemous, and punishment for blasphemy in Islam is DEATH.

    • WHO KILLED MUHAMMAD?

      Through the centuries, thousands of people have claimed to be prophets. Only one, however, rested his claims on the fact that his aorta hadn’t been cut. Ironically, as this man lay dying, he confessed that he could feel his aorta being severed.

      I. QUR’AN TRANSLATIONS

      Qur’an 69:44-46—And if he (Muhammad) had forged a false saying concerning Us We surely should have seized him by his right hand (or with power and might), and then certainly should have cut off his life artery (Aorta). (Hilali-Khan)

      Qur’an 69:44-46—And if he had invented false sayings concerning Us, We assuredly had taken him by the right hand and then severed his life-artery. (Pickthall)

      Qur’an 69:44-46—Had he invented lies concerning Us, We would have seized him by the right hand and severed his heart’s vein. (Dawood)

      Qur’an 69:44-46—And if he had fabricated against Us some of the sayings, We would certainly have seized him by the right hand, then We would certainly have cut off his aorta. (Shakir)

      II. MUSLIM COMMENTARIES

      Tafsir Ibn Abbas on Qur’an 69:44-46—(And if he had invented) and had Muhammad invented (false sayings concerning Us) lies against Us and attributed to Us that which We did not say, (We assuredly had taken him) We assuredly had taken revenge against him (by the right hand) by means of truth and proofs; it is also said this means: We assuredly had vehemently taken him. (And then severed his life artery) the life artery of Muhammad (pbuh).

      Tafsir Jalalayn on Qur’an 69:44-46—And had he, namely, the Prophet (s), fabricated any lies against Us, by communicating from Us that which We have not said, We would have assuredly seized him, We would have exacted vengeance [against him], as punishment, by the Right Hand, by [Our] strength and power; then We would have assuredly severed his life-artery, the aorta of the heart, a vein that connects with it, and which if severed results in that person’s death.

      Tafsir Ibn Kathir on Qur’an 69:46—(And then We certainly would have cut off Al-Watin from him,) Ibn ‘Abbas said, “It (Al-Watin) refers to the artery of the heart, and it is the vein that is attached to the heart.” This has also been said by ‘Ikrimah, Sa’id bin Jubayr, Al-Hakim, Qatadah, Ad-Dahhak, Muslim Al-Batin and Abu Sakhr Humayd bin Ziyad.

      III. HADITH REFERENCES

      Sahih al-Bukhari 2588—Aisha said, “When the Prophet became sick and his condition became serious, he requested his wives to allow him to be treated in my house, and they allowed him. He came out leaning on two men while his feet were dragging on the ground.”

      Sahih al-Bukhari 2617—A Jewess brought a poisoned (cooked) sheep for the Prophet who ate from it. She was brought to the Prophet and was asked, “Shall we kill her?” He said, “No.” Anas added: “I continued to see the effect of the poison on the palate of the mouth of Allah’s Messenger.”

      Sahih al-Bukhari 2797—The Prophet said, . . . “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is! I would love to be martyred in Allah’s Cause and then come back to life and then get martyred, and then come back to life again and then get martyred and then come back to life again and then get martyred.”

      Sahih al-Bukhari 4428—The Prophet in his ailment in which he died, used to say, “O Aishah! I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison.”

      Sahih Muslim 5430—A Jewess came to Allah’s Messenger with poisoned mutton and he took of what had been brought to him. (When the effects of this poison were felt by him) he called for her and asked her about that, whereupon she said: I had determined to kill you. Thereupon he said: Allah will never give you the power to do it.

      Sunan Abu Dawud 4498—A Jewess presented [Muhammad] at Khaibar a roasted sheep which she had poisoned. The Apostle of Allah ate of it and the people also ate. He then said: Lift your hands (from eating), for it has informed me that it is poisoned. Bishr b. al-Bara b. Ma’rur al-Ansari died. So he (the Prophet) sent for the Jewess (and said to her): What motivated you to do the work you have done? She said: If you were a prophet, it would not harm you; but if you were a king, I would rid the people of you. The Apostle of Allah then ordered regarding her and she was killed. He then said about the pain of which he died: I continued to feel pain from the morsel which I had eaten at Khaibar. This is the time when it has cut off my aorta.

      Sunan Abu Dawud 4449—Umm Bishr said to the Prophet during the sickness of which he died: What do you think about your illness, Apostle of Allah? I do not think about the illness of my son except the poisoned sheep of which he had eaten with you at Khaibar. The Prophet said: And I do not think about my illness except that. This is the time when it cut off my aorta.

      Sunan Ibn Majah 1622—Aishah said: “I never saw anyone suffer more pain than the Messenger of Allah.”

      IV. SIRA REFERENCES

      Ibn Ishaq, p. 516—When the apostle had rested, Zaynab d. al-Harith, the wife of Sallam b. Mishkam prepared for him a roast lamb, having first inquired what joint he preferred. When she learned that it was the shoulder she put a lot of poison in it and poisoned the whole lamb. Then she brought it in and placed it before him. He took hold of the shoulder and chewed a morsel of it, but he did not swallow it. Bishr b. al-Bara b. Ma’rur who was with him took some of it as the apostle had done, but he swallowed it, while the apostle spat it out, saying, ‘This bone tells me that it is poisoned.’ Then he called for the woman and she confessed, and when he asked her what had induced her to do this she answered: ‘You know what you have done to my people. I said to myself, If he is a king I shall ease myself of him and if he is a prophet he will be informed (of what I have done).’ So the apostle let her off. Bishr died from what he had eaten.

      Ibn Ishaq, p. 516—Marwan b. Uthman b. Abu Sa’id b. al-Mu’alla told me: The apostle had said in his illness of which he was to die when Umm Bishr d. al-Bara came to visit him, ‘O Umm Bishr, this is the time in which I feel a deadly pain from what I ate with your brother at Khaybar.’

      At-Tabari, Volume 8, p. 124—The Messenger of God said during the illness from which he died—the mother of Bishr b. al-Bara had come in to visit him—“Umm Bishr, at this very moment I feel my aorta being severed because of the food I ate with your son at Khaybar.”

      Ibn Sa’d, Volume 2, pp. 251-252—When the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, conquered Khaybar and he had peace of mind, Zaynab Bint al-Harith, the brother of Marhab, who was the spouse of Sallam Ibn Mishkam, inquired: Which part of the goat is liked by Muhammad? They said: The foreleg. Then she slaughtered one from her goats and roasted it (the meat). Then she wanted a poison which could not fail. The Jews discussed about poisons and became united on one poison. She poisoned the she-goat putting more poison on the forelegs, and shoulder. When the sun had set and the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, returned after leading the people in Maghrib (sun-set) prayers, she sat by his feet. He asked her about her. She said: O Abu al-Qasim! Here is a present which I wish to offer to you. The Prophet, may Allah bless him, ordered it to be taken. It was served to him and to his Companions who were present and among those who were present was Bishr Ibn al-Bara Ibn Ma’rur. Then the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, said: Come closer and have night meal. The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, took the foreleg, a piece of which he put into his mouth. Bishr Ibn al-Bara took another bone and put it into his mouth. When the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, ate one morsel of it Bishr ate his and other people also ate from it. Then the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, said: Hold back your hands! Because this foreleg; and according to another version, the shoulder of the goat, has informed me that it is poisoned. Thereupon Bishr said: By Him Who hath made you great! I discovered it from the morsel I took. Nothing prevented me from emitting it out, but the idea that I did not like to make your food unrelishing. When you had eaten what was in your mouth, I did not like to save my life after yours, and I also thought you would not have eaten it if there was something wrong. Bishr did not rise from his seat but his color changed to that of taylsan (a green cloth). For a year the pain did not permit him to change his sides but with the help of others and then he expired. According to another version, he died before leaving his seat. He (Ibn Sa’d) said: A peace of it was dropped before a dog who ate it and died (instantaneously) without being able to move its foreleg. The Apostle of Allah sent for Zaynab Bint al-Harith and said to her: What induced you to do what you have done? She replied: You have done to my people what you have done. You have killed my father, my uncle, and my husband, so I said to myself. If you are a prophet, the foreleg will inform you; and others have said: If you are a king we will get rid of you. The Jewess returned as she had come. He (Ibn Sa’d) said: The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, handed her over to the heirs of Bishr Ibn al-Bara who put her to death.

      • Lucky bin SATAN, Quran in 69:44-46 does NOT say how Muhammad died.

        ALL Hadiths are FAKE!

        Let me PROVE to YOU how much FAKE they are from the same Hadiths that you quoted, okay?

        Sahih al-Bukhari 2617—A Jewess brought a poisoned (cooked) sheep for the Prophet who ate from it. She was brought to the Prophet and was asked, “Shall we kill her?” He said, “No.” Anas added: “I continued to see the effect of the poison on the palate of the mouth of Allah’s Messenger.”
        In this Hadith, see what the Prophet says : “Shall we kill her?” The Prophet said NO! Also, Anas lies when he says, “I continued to see the effect of the poison on the PALATE of the mouth”. The prophet DIDN’T DIE, so HOW was ANAS seeing the effect of poison on the PALATE of the MOUTH of the Prophet????

        Now refer to Sunan Abu Dawud 4498—”A Jewess presented [Muhammad] at Khaibar a roasted sheep which she had poisoned. The Apostle of Allah ate of it and the people also ate. He then said: Lift your hands (from eating), for it has informed me that it is poisoned. Bishr b. al-Bara b. Ma’rur al-Ansari died. So he (the Prophet) sent for the Jewess (and said to her): What motivated you to do the work you have done? She said: If you were a prophet, it would not harm you; but if you were a king, I would rid the people of you. The Apostle of Allah then ordered regarding her and SHE WAS KILLED.”
        In this Hadith the Prophet ORDERED THE KILLING!

        Thus, WHICH of the two is right? Another point : The Jewish woman who brought the poison was NO Prophetess….then how come she tests the Prophet from a verse in Mark 16:18 (KJV) : “..and IF THEY DRINK ANY DEADLY THING THEY SHALL NOT DIE..??

        Can the POPE drink POISON and NOT DIE?

        Could Jesus DRINK POISON and NOT die???

(meaning that Muhammad DID NOT INVENT any lies otherwise we would have detected them easily).

            Q 33:45-6 (P) : O Prophet! Lo! We have sent thee as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a warner; And as a summoner unto Allah by His permission, and as a lamp that giveth light; And announce unto the believers the good tidings; And incline not to the disbelievers and the hypocrites. Disregard their noxious talk, and put thy trust in Allah.
            Q 35:25 :P: And if they deny thee, those before them also denied.

            And 7:184 Do they not reflect that their companion has not unsoundness in mind; he is only a plain warner.

            Nowhere does the Quran mention of any POISON or that Muhammad passed away due to that! In fact, Muhammad is praised as a LAMP(another source of light)…because he was given the Quran.

          • MOHAMMEDANISM & ‘Sex Jihad’

            Fatwa Permits Incest in Syria

            Last year, according to Arabic media accounts, “Saudi cleric Nasser al-‘Umar issued a fatwa permitting mujahidin [jihadis] in Syria to have sex-jihad with their sisters [muharamhum] if no one else is available. The Saudi preacher also praised the mujahidin for their ongoing fight against, in his words, the machine of infidelity and oppression, that is, the Syrian and Iranian regimes.”
            Saudi Sheikh Nasser al-‘Umar

            As shocking as this report may seem, it is not the first of its kind. For example, according to this Arabic documentary video,

            “The new jihad allows brothers and sisters in Syria belonging to the [al-Qaeda linked] al-Nusra Front to marry each other under the name of jihad because of the lack of girls among fighters of that organization.”The cleric issued his fatwa on “one of the channels associated with the radical jihadi movements” where he also reportedly said: “Some today are opposing the fatwas being issued by the clerics which serve our mujahidin brethren fighting in Syria [a likely reference to Muslim criticism—as opposed to Western denial—of the sex-jihad fatwas], without criticizing the killing of children and women in Syria.”

            One man appears on video saying,

            “At the Zawia mountain there is an imam called Imam Hussein. They bring him a brother and a sister, he says ‘Allahu Akbar’ on them three times to have sex together and make them husband and wife.”

            The rationale and justification of these fatwas is based on the Islamic maxim, “necessity makes the prohibited permissible,” not unlike the more familiar adage, “the ends justify the means.”

            In other words, because fighting to make the “word of Allah,” or Sharia, supreme is the greatest good, and because sexually-deprived jihadis fighting to do just that may lose morale and quit the theatre of war for lack of women, it is permissible, indeed laudable, for Muslim women—including apparently relatives—to volunteer to give up their bodies to these men so that they can continue the jihad to empower Islam, in accordance with the Koran: “Allah has purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain” (Yusuf Ali trans. 9:111).

            This verse has been traditionally understood as Muslim men selling “their persons,” that is, their bodies, to the jihad in exchange for paradise. In the context of sex jihad, however, Muslim women—including sisters—are also selling “their persons” (their bodies for sex) to indirectly empower the jihad, also in exchange for paradise.

            The fact is, the maxim, “necessity makes the prohibited permissible,” is responsible for any number of seeming contradictions: Muslim women must chastely be covered head-to-toe—yet, in the service of jihad, they are allowed to prostitute their bodies. Homosexuality is forbidden—but permissible if rationalized as a way to kill infidels. Lying is forbidden—but permissible to empower Islam. Suicide is forbidden—but permissible during the jihad—called “martyrdom.” Stealing is forbidden—but the rightful booty of the jihadi who conquers infidels.

            The moral of the story? Sharia is only draconian and rigid for those who find themselves living under its jurisprudence. But as for those who work to empower Allah’s law—chief among them, the jihadis—not only are they permitted to ignore Sharia, they are permitted to ignore basic standards of morality.

            Hence the ancient and widespread appeal of the jihad.

            JINN POSSESSION

            One may almost say of popular Islam what Dr. Warneck does of the heathen Battaks of Sumatra: “The worship of spirits, with the fear underlying it, completely fills the religious life of the Battaks and of all animistic peoples. Their whole daily life in its minutest details is saturated with it. At birth, name-giving, courting, marriage, house-building, seed-time and harvest, the spirits must be considered.” What the Moslem belief in jinn involves can best be indicated by giving here the table of contents of one of the standard works on the subject called Akam ul Mirjan fi Ahkam al Jann by Mohammed ibn Abdallah al-Shibli who died 789 A.H. It is for sale in every Moslem city throughout the world. I follow the chapter headings without note or comment: the reader will pardon its literalisms:

            Satan showed himself to Job.

            Now all this – and nearly every chapter is a door to a world of groveling superstition and demonolatry – finds its parallel in the beliefs of the animist. Among them the earth, air and water are supposed to be peopled with spirits. They are most numerous in the forest and in the waste fields, where they lie in wait for the living, and afflict them with disease and madness, or drag them away to an awful death. “They prowl round the houses at night, they spy through the crevices of the partitions or come into the house in the form of some man or beast. Sometimes in epidemics they can even be seen. There are men who have the spiritual gift of being able to see spirits and souls. Sometimes these men see the spirit of the dead stepping behind the coffin and perching the soul of a living man upon it – the inevitable result of which is, that the man must die. The number of dangerous spirits to which human misery is traced back is legion. Names are given and attributes ascribed to spirits of particularly bad repute, such as the spirit who causes cholera: he is of a terrific size, and carries a mighty club with which he smites his victim to the earth.”

            The spirits are mostly mischievous and ill-disposed. They lurk in tree-tops and all sorts of places and cause disease, misfortune and death. It is much more important to keep the hurtful ones in good humor than to honor the kindly disposed, who are, therefore, practically ignored.

            There are all sorts of legends current among animists of India as to the origin of these ghosts or spirits, but most of them have some admixture proving their comparatively late date. A clear distinction must be made between gods and spirits. There are no gods in Animism proper. The word god implies a higher degree of personality, and where that is attributed to these spirits the influence of some more advanced creed can generally be traced. The impersonal element in Animism must strike any one who tries to investigate it. Undefined shadowy powers with no settled habitation sigh in the wind, whisper in the rustling leaf and lurk in silence in the tree-tops. They may attach themselves for longer or shorter periods to a particular object. Any striking natural feature such as a blasted or lonely tree, a waterfall, a mountain peak, is sure to be thus inhabited. But the primeval forest is their special domain, and as this is cleared little sacred groves must everywhere be left standing. Constantly one is told of some tree or grove, “a very strong spirit lives there,” but if you ask its name or origin none can be assigned. Its existence and power are undoubted, and many tales of the mischief it has caused will be quoted in proof. In every particular the popular Moslem doctrine of jinn is Animistic, except their belief in Allah as Lord of jinn, as well as the Lord of men. He is over all, God blessed forever and yet for fear of the jinn the Moslem masses are all their lifetime subject to fear and dread and bondage. What Warneck writes of the pagan tribes in Malaysia is not less true of their Moslem neighbors and of Moslem women and children in Arabia and the villages of the Delta. “Except in case of necessity,” he says, “no one leaves the house after sunset or in moonlight, when the spirits swarm in great numbers. Houses and villages are shifted here and there to escape the influence of evil spirits. Sick people are carried secretly by night into another house to get away from the tormenting spirit. They prefer to deceive the spirits. During harvest loud singing and whistling are avoided, lest the spirits should suppose that men were rejoicing at an abundant harvest, and out of envy take their share. ”

            When I traveled in Yemen nothing so distressed my Arab companions as the awful habit of whistling. There are traditions to prove that Mohammed forbade any one to blow a pipe or whistle especially at night-time.
            In regard to devil-worship and the fear of evil spirits, Wilkinson says that in Malay “the upper stratum is, of course, Moslem; the Malays accept the whole demonology of the Persians and Arabs and have even added to it by assuming mere demon-epithets such as “accursed” (mala’un) or “misbegotten”
            (haramzadah, jadah) to be the names of new varieties of devils. The next stratum is Hindu because Hanuman is still vaguely remembered as a dog-faced or horse-faced demon, meteors are described as the ghostly arrows of Arjuna, and the legends of the Indian Ramayana have become folk-lore in the Northern States. The ancient literature of the Malays is also full of references to Hindu mythology.” His concluding words are significant:

            “It is comparatively easy to identify those portions of Malay demonology which owe their existence to the historic Moslem or Hindu influences, but below these upper strata of beliefs we find further strata belonging to primeval religions of whose character we know very little. We are here dealing with a very mixed race of people who have probably preserved traditions handed down to them from several distinct sources. A few facts stand out fairly distinctly. The fishermen along the coast of the Peninsula sacrifice to four great spirits of the sea who go by many names but whose scope of authority is always the same; one is the Spirit of Bays, another that of Banks or Beaches, another that of Headlands, and the last and fiercest is the Spirit of Tideways or Mid-currents. Most of the designations given to these ancient divinities are merely descriptive of their functions. So long as things go well, the names of the four Moslem Archangels are considered sufficient; if things go badly Sanscrit words are used; if matters become desperate, the fisherman throws prudence to the winds and appeals to the spirits in pure Indonesian terms which they cannot fail to understand.”

        • Lucky bin SATAN, I wish you were there in those bomb blasts which happened in Mombasa a few minutes ago!…..but then on second thoughts where would I get another Bin SATAN…who has become the Merchant of copy pasting??

          You said Roman Catholics and Muhammadans have the same demonic spirit. Since I am NOT a Muhammadan I do NOT have demonic spirit. Does SATAN have a demonic spirit? What about YOU, bin SATAN, have you ever been attacked by Lucifer??

          • Lucky bin SATAN, Matthew 5:44 (NKJV) :

            But I say to you, LOVE your ENEMIES, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.

            This is what Jesus said, and EVERY Christian MUST do that, literally. Are YOU a heretic, Bin SATAN?

            Why don’t YOU follow the sayings of the Bachelor Boy? Surprisingly, I do NOT see ANY love coming out towards YOUR enemy ISLAM.

            And…and….and…..YOU, Bin Satan, are continuously spitting unfounded venom from YOUR heart, against an innocent person, who died ….long…..long……long …ago.

            It shows YOU will never…never….never …..learn the Principles that Jesus taught……. and that is to LOVE YOUR ENEMIES. You are NO different from any Muhammadan!!

          • It shows YOU will never…never….never …..learn the Principles that Jesus taught……. and that is to LOVE YOUR ENEMIES. You are NO different from any Muhammadan!!

            YOU FUCKING DEMENTED LIAR!

            YOU HAVE£ STATED REPEATEDLY THAT JESUS NEVER EXISTED, SO WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU QUOTING SOMEONE, WHO YOU SAY NEVER EXISTED?

            THIS IS PROOF POSITIVE THAT YOU ARE A LUNATIC!

            YOU NEED TO BE COMMITTED TO A MENTAL ASYLUM!

          • Lucky bin SATAN, I have said that “Jesus” was a STORY hero. He NEVER lived. It means that the anonymous authors of the Gospels ‘made up’ the stories. The author of Matthew started the story of Jesus by copying from the old Scripture and thus created his character. Then came Mark who saw the mistakes in Matthew and corrected those mistakes otherwise copied everything almost ditto and left it hanging. Follow up was Luke who “found” out what Matthew had done…how he created “Jesus” and used the same trick beginning with different genealogy… the rest he copied from Matthew many stories but related combining with his own borrowed verses. Then came John who confused the whole world by giving the character of Matthew a Godly status! And you know the lies of Saul bin Paul.

            You asked, why I quote the verses from the Bible since I have said that Jesus NEVER existed, correct? That is a very good question…that could/would normally come out of your coconut head!!
            The answer is very simple…in fact it is two fold :

            1. Socrates was the creation of Plato…as James Bond is the making of Ian Fleming. We know that Socrates never lived yet we read THE REPUBLIC and the SYMPOSIUM Books of Plato. Why?? Similarly, we know that James Bond is a fictitious character just like our Bachelor Boy Jesus, YET we watch the movies with appreciation, why?? I do the same for the Fictitious Jesus…is there anything wrong with that?

            2. The Bible has been written by some learned people of some centuries past, with good vision and thus it contains a lot of Literature…. since it is an OPEN Book for ALL to read, I do NOT think a person like YOU, Bin SATAN, should have any objection to my comments on what it says.

            I hope I am clear, Bin SATAN!

          • YOU LONGNOSED AARDVARK, SNIFFING THE ASSES OF MOHAMMEDANS!

            YOU DON’T HAVE THE INTELLIGENCE TO DIFFERENCIATE BETWEEN MYTH, LEGEND, HYPERBOLE, PARABLE & FACT!

            YOUR HARRY POTTER BOOK IS BASED MOSTLY ON THE JEWISH TALMUD, APOCRYPHA, ZOROASTERIAN MYTHS & PAGAN MYTHS:

            ABSURD QURAN

            Though mankind and the jinn (demon s) should assemble to produce the like of this Qur’an.–17:88
            “Alif. Lam. Mim.”
            Many surahs start with three Arabic letters. No one knows why. But I have a theory. The mysterious letters (Alif. Lam. Mim.) are the Quranic equivalent of WTF. 2:1

            “This is the Scripture whereof there is no doubt, a guidance unto those who ward off (evil).” There is no doubt about this or any other “Scripture”. It is false. It wasn’t revealed by God and it won’t “ward off evil.” 2:2
            Those who believe in the unseen things revealed by Muhammad and who are absolutely certain they will survive their own death are the successful people. You know, the Muslims. 2:3-5
            “Shall we believe as the foolish believe?”

            According to the Quran, the answer is, yes. To be truly wise you must believe whatever the foolish believe. 2:13

            Allah especially dislikes people who pretend to believe when they’re around Muslims, and then disbelieve when they hang out with devils. 2:14

            “If Allah willed, He could destroy their hearing and their sight. Lo! Allah is able to do all things.” 2:20
            “And if ye are in doubt … then produce a surah of the like thereof.”

            If you doubt that the truth of the Quran, then try making some stuff up and see how it compares. (Whatever you come up with will be better than the Quran.) 2:23
            Allah created seven heavens. 2:29
            And He taught Adam all the names.”

            Allah taught Adam all the names of the plants and animals, which must have taken a while since there are 1.7 million species that are known today, with probably another 10 million or so that are yet to be discovered. And this only includes those that are alive today. If extinct species are included (~99%), then Allah must have taught Adam a billion or so names. 2:31a

            Then Allah showed all the animals to the angels, challenging them to guess their names (if they are truthful). 2:31b

            But the angels weren’t truthful enough to guess correctly. 2:32

            Then Allah tells Adam to tell the angels the animals’ names. So Adam tells them and says, “I know something you guys don’t! Neener-Neener-Neener!” 2:33

            Allah commands the angels to worship Adam. They all do, except for Iblis, who becomes a disbeliever. 2:34
            After the people worshipped a calf, Moses told them to kill themselves. That, he said, would be best for them. 2:54

            Allah struck Moses with lightning and then revived him just so that Moses would thank him for it! 2:55-56
            As you read the Quran you’ll notice that many of the Bible’s stupidest stories are made even stupider in the Quran. Take Exodus 17:1-6 for example. In the Bible, Moses strikes a rock and water comes out for the Israelites to drink. In the Quran, the same thing happens but there are twelve springs that come out of the rock, one for each tribe of Israel. 2:60

            Allah turned Sabbath-breaking Jews into apes to be despised and hated. All modern Jews are descendants of apes (or all modern apes are descendants of Sabbath-breaking Jews). 2:65-66

            “Allah told the Jews to sacrifice a bright yellow cow. 2:67-69

            But they weren’t sure what cow to kill. All cows pretty much look alike to Jews. 2:67-69

            Somehow they worked it all out, though, and killed a yellow cow. 2:71

            A man was murdered about the same time that the yellow cow was killed. Nobody knew who the murderer was. So Allah told the people to smite the dead man with a piece of the dead cow. When they did that, the dead man came to life and told everyone who had murdered him. (I hope I got that right.)2:72-3

            There are rocks which fall down for the fear of Allah.”

            Are there rocks that fall down laughing at the stupid things Allah says in the Quran? 2:74
            “Little is that which they believe.”

            At least Allah got that right. There is little in the Quran that is worthy of belief. 2:88

            Pay no attention to the know-nothings that ask Allah for a sign. (Or ask him to say something good, kind, decent, or reasonable in the Quran.) 2:118a

            Their hearts are all alike (they suck). Allah’s revelations are clear to those that already believe that Allah’s revelations are clear. 2:118b

            “We take our colour from Allah, and who is better than Allah at colouring.”
            Muslims were colored by God. “Who is better than Allah at coloring?”
            I give up. Who is better at coloring than Allah? 2:138

            Allah guides whoever the hell he wants on a straight path. And once in a while he changes the direction of the path for no reason whatsoever. 2:142

            Allah changes the holy direction. Originally Muslims prayed toward Jerusalem. But then, for no apparent reason, Allah told Muhammad to start praying toward a black cube-shaped building in Mecca (the Kaaba). The Kaaba, according to Islamic tradition, was the first building on earth. Built by Adam and re-built later by Abraham and Ishmael, the Kaaba is the direction that all Muslims pray toward five times day, and is the holy site that all Muslims are supposed to visit once in their lifetime. 2:143-4

            “Those who disbelieve [are] Deaf, dumb, blind, therefore they have no sense.” 2:171

            “There is life for you in retaliation … that ye may ward off (evil).”

            There is life for you in Allah’s magic retaliation. It helps to ward off evil. (It works like a rabbit’s foot or something.) 2:179

            “Beautified is the life of the world for those who disbelieve; they make a jest of the believers.”
            Yes life is beautiful to us unbelievers and we like to laugh at believers! 2:212

            Drinking and gambling are sinful, but useful. Allah isn’t sure, but he figures their sinfulness is probably greater than their usefulness. Just try not to spend too much on either. 2:219a

            If you’re wondering how much is too much to spend on drinking and gambling, Allah has the answer for you. Only drink or gamble away what is superfluous. Allah is Mighty, Wise, Helpful. 2:219b

            Next Allah gets down to the really important things in life. Things we all wonder about from time to time. Like should I marry a few idolatresses? Is an Islamic concubine better than a really hot Christian woman? Should I refuse to give my daughter to a Jewish man until he becomes a Muslim? And who should I invite to the Fire anyway? 2:221

            After your divorced wives have reached the end of their 3 month waiting period, you can take them or leave them. Just don’t make Allah a laughing-stock. 2:231

            When a man dies, his wives can’t have sex for four months and ten days. After that, if they’re not pregnant, it’s no sin for the dead man if his wives have sex again. 2:234

            Allah told thousands of soldiers to die. Then after they died, Allah brought them back to life. 2:243
            Allah asks for a loan, promising to pay us back with interest. Allah straightens and enlarges whatever is bent or small. 2:245

            Then Allah starts with the Bible stories. And, as usual, he gets them all wrong. First he has angels carrying the ark. 2:247

            Allah confuses Saul with Gideon when telling the stupid dog-lapping story of Judges 7:5-7. 2:249

            Abraham argues with a disbeliever by saying, “God makes the sun rise in the east. Make it rise in the west.” Which totally abashed the disbeliever. But the disbeliever should have said, “I make the sun rise in the east. Ask Allah to make it rise in the west.” That would have abashed Abraham and Allah. 2:258

            Allah makes a man “die” for 100 years, and then brings him back to life. 2:259

            To show how he gives life to the dead, Allah tells Abraham to cut up the bodies of four birds, scatter their remains on four hills, and then call to them. Allah says that the dead birds will come quickly to Abraham. 2:260

            Some scriptures are allegorical and some are not. No one understands the allegorical stuff except for Allah. 3:7

            Muslims are the best people. Most Non-muslims are “evil-livers.” 3:110

            Allah tells us about a battle between the good guys (the Muslims) and the bad guys (the non-Muslims). One side saw “clearly, with their very eyes” that the other side had twice as many soldiers. End of story. “Lo! herein verily is a lesson for those who have eyes.” (I guess I don’t have eyes.) 3:13

            “If ye love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins.”

            Follow Muhammad and Allah will love your and forgive your sins. Otherwise…. 3:31

            “Obey Allah and the messenger.” But mostly the Messenger (Muhammad). 3:32

            Here’s a fun story about Allah, Jesus, and magic clay birds.
            “Lo! I [Allah] fashion for you [Jesus] out of clay the likeness of a bird, and I breathe into it and it is a bird, by Allah’s leave. ” 3:49

            “Allah is the best of schemers.” 3:54

            “Why then argue ye concerning that whereof ye have no knowledge?”
            Don’t argue about things that you know nothing about. 3:66

            Why does Allah like Muslims so much? Because they are the best people on earth, they behave themselves, forbid indecency, and believe in Allah. Allah loves people who believe in him. (Most Non-muslims are “evil-livers.”) 3:110

            “Obey Allah and obey the messenger.” 3:132

            “Ye will overcome them if ye are (indeed) believers.”
            (Believers always defeat unbelievers.) 3:139

            Those who retreat while fighting in a holy war are inspired by Satan. 3:155

            “Think not of those, who are slain in the way of Allah, as dead.” 3:169-171

            Inheritance laws: None of this makes sense to me, but here’s a link that explains it all for you. 4:11-12

            “We shall cast him into Fire, and that is ever easy for Allah.” 4:30

            Be kind to the slaves “whom your right hands possess.” But, of course, if a kind person would set slaves free and wouldn’t have them in the first place. 4:36

            Don’t make Satan your imaginary friend. Choose Allah instead! 4:38

            If you get dirty (by touching a woman or something), and can’t find any clean water around at prayer time, you can clean up by rubbing your face and hands in some clean dirt. 4:43

            Christians and Jews must believe what Allah has revealed to Muhammad or Allah will disfigure their faces or turn them into apes, as he did the Sabbath-breakers. (See 2:65-66) 4:47

            Virgins (and plenteous shade) await those who enter paradise. 4:57

            “We sent no messenger save that he should be obeyed by Allah’s leave.” (Obey Muhammad.) 4:64
            Don’t worry about dying in battle. Remember the shade and the pure companions. Allah wouldn’t hurt the down on a date-stone. 4:77

            If something good happens to you, it is because of Allah. If something bad happens, it’s your own damn fault. Heads, Allah wins; tails, you lose. 4:78-79

            “Whoso obeyeth the messenger hath obeyed Allah, and whoso turneth away: We have not sent thee as a warder over them.” 4:80

            “Will they not then ponder on the Qur’an? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much incongruity.”
            If the Quran was not from Allah its critics would find some mistakes in it.(The Quran filled with mistakes. It is a silly, error-filled book. But even if the Quran didn’t contain a single error, it would not prove that it was from Allah.) 4:82

            “If it had not been for the grace of Allah upon you and His mercy ye would have followed Satan, save a few (of you).”
            Most of us would be followers of Satan if it wasn’t for Allah. 4:83

            Whoever participates in a good cause, will be rewarded. Whoever participates in an evil cause, will bear the consequences thereof. (It’s not true, but it’s a nice thought.) 4:85

            If someone says Hi to you say Hi (or Howdy) back to them. 4:86

            “Who enjoineth almsgiving and kindness and peace-making … We shall bestow … a vast reward.”
            It is good to help the poor and make peace. (But the part about Allah giving you a big reward for doing so is a big lie.) 4:114

            Don’t cut cattle’s ears and, thereby, change Allah’s creation. (This is interpreted to mean that Muslim men must not shave their beards, and Muslim women must not pluck their eyebrows.) Allah commands non-Muslims to shave beards and pluck eyebrows so he can have an excuse to burn them in hell after they die. 4:119-121

            Allah will not allow disbelievers to succeed against believers. 4:141

            Jesus was not crucified. (It just looked like he was.) 4:157-8

            What not to eat: roadkill, blood, pigs, animals sacrificed to gods other than Allah, animals that were strangled, beat to death, jumped of a cliff, fell from the sky, or were killed by other animals. 5:3

            “I perfected your religion for you … and have chosen for you as religion al-Islam.” 5:3

            When it’s time to pray and you have just used the toilet or touched a woman, be sure to wash up. If you can’t find any water, just rub some dirt on yourself. 5:6

            Jesus has a conversation with a godly unclean spirit named “Legion.” 5:8-10

            “O People of the Scripture! Now hath Our messenger come unto you, expounding unto you much of that which ye used to hide in the Scripture.”
            Muhammad, who was illiterate and who had never read the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, offers to explain the scriptures to Christians and Jews, who he claims hide and distort the true meaning of their scriptures. 5:8-15

            Christians are disbelievers for believing in the divinity of Christ. 5:17

            The Quran repeats the silly story about Cain and Abel (though they are unnamed in the Quran). 5:27-31

            “Allah sent a raven scratching up the ground, to show him how to hide his brother’s naked corpse.” 5:31
            Allah has turned some Christians and Jews into apes and swine. 5:60

            Allah warns believers not to ask to many questions. (Honest answers will cause them to lose their faith.) 5:101

            Jesus made a bird out of clay that flew away when he blew on it. 5:110

            The disciples of Jesus were muslims! 5:111

            Jesus’ disciples ask Jesus to send a table of food down from heaven. And he delivers! 5:112-114

            After agreeing to send down a table of food from heaven, Jesus warns his disciples that will catch holy hell if they ever stop believing. 5:115

            The Christian Trinity is the Father, Mother, and Son. 5:116

            “See they not how many a generation We destroyed?”
            How could they (or anyone else who wasn’t there) see Allah destroy previous generations? 6:6
            True enough. There isn’t a book, prophet, or angel that would have caused skeptics to believe the foolish things in Islam or Christianity. 6:7-9

            Pets are people, too! 6:38

            Allah guided Noah, David, Elisha, and Lot on a good and righteous path. 6:84-87

            Allah created the jinn but he is not in partnership with them. 6:100

            Allah appointed jinns to be the adversaries of prophets. 6:112

            Jinns have led many humans astray. 6:128

            The jinn were disbelievers. 6:130

            “And of the cattle (He produceth) some for burdens, some for food. Eat of that which Allah hath bestowed upon you, and follow not the footsteps of the devil.”
            The devil is a vegetarian. Kill and eat lots of animals so you won’t be like him. 6:142

            Allah commanded the angels to worship Adam. They all did except for Iblis. 7:11

            Adam and his nameles wife (Eve?) didn’t know they were naked until they ate from the tree. 7:22

            Entire nations of the jinn have been tormented with fire. (Since jinns were made from fire, they’ll probably enjoy the fire of hell.) 7:38

            Muslim commentators on the Quran tell us that Salih, through the power of Allah, turned a stone into a female camel. 7:73

            “Then he [Moses] flung down his staff and lo! it was a serpent.” 7:107

            “And he [Moses] drew forth his hand (from his bosom), and lo! it was white.” 7:108

            We inspired Moses (saying): Throw thy staff! And lo! it swallowed up their lying show. 7:117
            “So We sent against them the flood and the locusts and the vermin and the frogs and the blood – a succession of clear signs.” 7:133

            When Allah revealed himself to Moses, the mountain (Mt. Sinai?) came crashing down. 7:143
            The golden calf mooed. 7:148

            “The Prophet who can neither read nor write.” 7:157-8

            The Quran repeats (and embellishes somewhat) the absurdities of the Biblical Exodus. 7:160

            Allah presented the Jews a big fish on the Sabbath day when they were forbidden to fish, and then withheld the fish on the day that they were permitted to fish. That’ll teach them! 7:163

            Allah turns humans into apes! 7:166

            Those who deny Muhammad’s revelations are like dogs. 7:176

            “We lead them .. I give them … He is but a”
            If the Quran is such a perfect book, why can’t Allah keep his pronouns straight? 7:182-4

            “Obey Allah and obey the messenger, and turn not away from him when ye hear (him speak).” 8:20

            “This [the Quran] is naught but fables of the men of old.” 8:30

            “Allah is the best of plotters.” 8:31

            Those that live or die in war are a clear proof of Allah’s sovereignty. 8:31

            Exhort the believers to fight. They will win easily, because disbelievers are without intelligence. 8:65
            “Allah … sent down host ye could not see.”

            Allah sent down angels (I guess) to fight for him! (But they were invisible so no one could see them.) 9:26
            “The Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah.” (Where and when did any Jew ever say that?) 9:30

            “They have taken as lords … their rabbis and their monks.”
            Jews and Christians consider rabbis and monks to be partners with God? How do Muslims treat Muhammad? 9:31

            Don’t try to enjoy this life. The fun starts after you die. (If you are a good Muslim, that is.) 9:38
            “Ye cannot harm Him at all.” 9:39

            Invisible armies!
            Allah supported Muhammad with armies that no one else could see. 9:40

            The people who heard Muhammad’s “revelations” thought they sucked, saying, “Find another messenger or change the message.” 10:15

            Denying the revelations of Allah is the worst sin imaginable. 10:17

            “Neither dust nor ignominy cometh near their faces.” Muslims will look good in heaven. There’ll be no dust on their faces! 10:26

            The Quran is so perfect it could never be invented. Go ahead and try to write a Surah as great as those in the Quran. 10:37-38

            “Allah wrongeth not mankind in aught; but mankind wrong themselves.”
            Nah, Allah never hurt anyone. Well, he did drown everyone on earth except Noah and his family. And he’s going to torture every non-muslim forever after they die. But other than that (and other cruel stuff like it), what did Allah ever do to anyone? 10:44

            The Pharaoh became a Muslim to avoid being drowned by Allah. 10:90

            “And We verily did allot unto the Children of Israel a fixed abode.”
            Really? Then why do modern Muslims object to Jews occupying the land (Israel) that Allah gave them? 10:93

            A test for those who suspect that Muhammad invented the Quran: compose ten surahs like those in the Quran. (It shouldn’t be hard to do much better than surahs 38, 40, 44, 47, 63, 66, 88, 105, 111, and 114.) 11:13
            Allah created the heavens and earth in six days and set his throne upon water in order to test people to see who behaved better. 11:7
            “This is the camel of Allah … touch her not with harm lest a near torment seize you.” 11:64
            Allah will fill hell with humans and jinn. 11:119
            What luck! There’s a boy in my waterpail! 12:19
            “If his shirt is torn from before, then she speaketh truth … if his shirt is torn from behind, then she hath lied.”
            Stupid tests like this can only be found in the Quran (or the Bible or the Book of Mormon). 12:26-27
            “And Joseph’s brethren came and presented themselves before him, and he knew them but they knew him not.”
            Stupid stories like this can only be found in the Quran (and the Bible). 12:58
            Everyone and everything (and their shadow) bows to Allah twice a day (whether they want to or not). 13:15
            “And Satan saith….”
            Satan gives a little speach. 14:22
            “Lo! thou [Muhammad] art indeed a madman!” 15:6
            Allah created the jinn from fire. 15:27
            Allah commanded the angels to worship Adam. They all did except for Iblis. 15:28-31
            God is pissed at Iblis for not bowing down and worshipping man. But why? Wouldn’t this be idolatry? 15:32-33
            Allah sends Iblis to hell for refusing to worship humans and then immediately changes his mind at Iblis’ request. 15:34-37
            “He hath cast into the earth firm hills that it quake not with you.”
            Allah made mountains that that don’t shake when you jump up and down. And lots of other stuff, too! 16:15
            “He loveth not the proud.”
            Allah is too proud to love proud people. 16:23
            “What hath your Lord revealed ? they say: (Mere) fables of the men of old.”
            Mo’s critics were exactly right. What has he revealed? Just a bunch of fables of old (plus a few he made up himself). 16:24
            “And thy Lord inspired the bee, saying … eat of all fruits.”
            Allah told bees to eat from all fruits, but decided to eat nectar and pollen instead. 16:68-68
            “Glorified be He Who carried His servant by night from the Inviolable Place of Worship to the Far distant place of worship the neighbourhood whereof We have blessed.”
            This verse refers to Muhammad’s famous midnight ride on the back of a flying horse (Al-Buraq) from Mecca to Jerusalem and then to heaven. 17:1
            Allah has prepared a painful doom for those who disbelieve in the Hereafter. 17:10
            How many generations Allah has destroyed since Noah! 17:17
            Allah will destroy every town before the Day of Resurrection. 17:58
            “Whoso is blind here will be blind in the Hereafter, and yet further from the road.” 17:72
            Humans and jinn working together could not produce the Quran. 17:88
            Mary complains to a palm tree about the pains of childbirth. The tree tells her to shake its trunk and ripe dates will fall. 19:23-25
            Mary, the mother of Jesus, was the sister of Aaron. (Apparently, Muhammad confused Mary with Miriam.) 19:27-28
            Jesus professes his Islamic faith while still in the cradle, modestly claiming the be a perfect prophet who will be raised alive when he dies. 19:30-34
            “Idris. Lo! he was a saint, a prophet.”
            No one knows who the hell Idris is. 19:56
            Moses turns his staff into a serpent. 20:18-20
            The golden (or saffron-colored) calf mooed. 20:88
            “We have revealed it [the Quran] as a Lecture in Arabic.”
            Then why are there so many non-Arabic words and sources for it? And why would God prefer one language over another? Is he the tribal god of the Arabs? 20:113
            In Genesis (3:22-24), Adam and Eve are driven out of the Garden of Eden before eating from the “Tree of Life” and thereby becoming immortal. But here they eat from “the tree of immortality and power” — yet they don’t become immortal or powerful, they become ashamed of their nakedness. Why? 20:120-1
            Muhammad’s critics claimed that his supposed revelations were “muddled dreams” that he made up as he went along. 21:5
            Allah gave judgment and knowledge to Lot. He was a righteous man. (Genesis 19:7-38) 21:75
            Every person alive at the time of the flood was evil. So Allah drowned them all. 21:77
            “Idris, and Dhu’l-Kifl. All were of the steadfast.”
            No one knows who these steadfast guys (Idris and Dhu’l-Kifl)were supposed to be. 21:85
            “O mankind! if ye are in doubt concerning the Resurrection, then lo! We have created you from dust, then from a drop of seed, then from a clot, then from a little lump of flesh shapely and shapeless, that We may make (it) clear for you.”
            Oh thanks, Allah. That clears everything up! 22:5
            “Allah … quickeneth the dead … Allah will raise those who are in the graves.” 22:6-7
            A husband can accuse his wife of adultery with only one witness (himself). But he has to swear five times (so he can count as four or more separate witnesses in accordance with 24.4). 24:6
            “Obey Allah and obey the messenger.” (But mostly the messenger — Muhammad.) 24:54
            “Say: Is that doom better or the Garden of Immortality?” 25:15
            “The disbeliever was ever a partisan against his Lord.” 25:55
            Moses turns his staff into a snake and makes his hand turn white. 26:32
            Moses throws his staff down and it swallows the wizards’ staffs. 26:45
            Stay away from poets. The erring follow them. 26:224
            With Allah’s help, Moses turns his staff into a snake (or a demon). 27:10
            For his second magic trick, Moses turns his hand white (with Allah’s help, of course). 27:12
            Solomon was taught the language of birds. 27:16
            The Jinn and birds fought in Solomon’s army. 27:17
            Talking ants! 27:18
            Solomon talks to the ants. 27:19
            Solomon is upset that the hoopee is not among the birds in his army. 27:20
            Solomon says he’ll kill the hoopee unless he has a good excuse for his absence. 27:21
            Moses, with Allah’s help, turns his staff into a demon (which he then runs away from) and makes his hand turn white. 28:31-32
            Noah was 950 years old at the time of the flood. [Genesis (7:11) says he was only 600.] 29:14
            Lot is among the righteous. 29:26-27
            “The Prophet is closer to the believers than their selves, and his wives are (as) their mothers.” 33:6
            Allah makes the deeds of unbelievers fruitless. (And that is easy for Allah.) 33:19
            “In the messenger of Allah [Muhammad] ye have a good example.”
            What would Muhammad do? 33:21
            The wives of Muhammad will be punished double for lewdness. (And that is easy for Allah.) 33:30
            Allah gave Zeyd to Muhammad in marriage so that all Muslims would know that it’s OK to marry your adopted son’s ex-wife. 33:37
            “There is no reproach for the Prophet in that which Allah maketh his due.”
            Allah says that Muhammad (pb&jbuh) can do whatever he damn well pleases. 33:37
            “Muhammad … is the messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets.” 33:40
            “Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet.”
            Or as the Ash-Shifa puts it: “Allah and his angels praise and venerate the Prophet.” 33:56
            Allah offered the heavens, earth, and hills the the duty of worshiping him, but they were afraid and refused. So humans got the job instead. 33:72
            “Hath he [Muhammad] invented a lie concerning Allah, or is there in him a madness?” 34:8
            Allah gave Solomon some of the jinn to work for him. 34:12
            Everyone followed Satan except for a group of true believers. 34:20
            Those who worshipped the jinn will taste the doom of the Fire. 34:41
            “There is no madness in your comrade [Muhammad].” 34:46
            The devil is real. He and his followers will burn forever in the Fire. 35:6
            “Shall we forsake our gods for a mad poet?”
            Muhammad’s critics thought he was “a mad poet.” 37:36
            Those in hell must eat from a tree with the heads of devils, and then drink boiling water. After that they return to hell. 37:62-68
            When Abraham’s son, Ishmael, was old enough to walk, Allah told Abraham in a dream to sacrifice Ishmael. So Abraham asked Ishmael if it’d be OK with him, and Ishmael said, “Sure thing, Dad, go ahead and kill me for God. I won’t even flinch.” 37:102
            Jonah was swallowed by a fish. 37:142
            “We would be single-minded slaves of Allah.”

            Allah made the wind obey Solomon. 38:34-36
            Job kicked the ground and immediately a spring flowed out. 38:41-2
            “Dhu’l-Kifl … of the chosen.”
            No one knows who Dhu-l-Kifl is supposed to be. 38:48
            The angels worshipped humans, except for Iblis, who became one of the disbelievers. 38:73-4
            Iblis asks Allah to let him hang around and mislead humans. Allah allows him to do so, and Iblis leads all humans to hell except for the single-minded slaves. Allah agrees, and plans to fill hell with Iblis and his followers. 38:79-85
            Thus does Allah send astray the disbelievers (in his guidance). 40:74
            If bad stuff happens to you, it’s your own fault. 42:30, 42:48
            “They had turned away from him [Muhammad] and said: a madman?” 44:14
            Those in hell must eat from a tree (the tree of Zaqqum) like molten brass that burns their bellies. Then boiling water will be poured on their heads. 44:43-48
            “We shall wed them unto fair ones with wide, lovely eyes.”
            Allah will reward faithful Muslims after they die with “fair ones with wide, lovely eyes” or with white raisins. 44:54
            Swearing allegiance to Muhammad is the same as swearing allegiance to God. 48:10
            Do not lift your voice when in Muhammad’s presence. Those who subdue their voices are righteous and will receive an immense reward from Allah. 49:1-3
            Would you like to eat the flesh of your dead brother? 49:12
            “We say unto hell: Art thou filled? and it saith: Can there be more to come?”
            Allah talks to hell about it’s occupancy level. 50:30
            Accursed are the conjecturers who ask: When is the Day of Judgment? It is the day they will be tormented by the Fire. 51:10-14
            “The moon was rent in twain.”
            Muhammaed split the moon into two pieces. Beat that one, Jesus! 54:1-2
            Allah created the jinn out of smokeless fire. 55:15
            Allah will give those in the Garden women of modest gaze whom neither man nor jinn have touched. (Or it might be white raisins instead of modest virgins.) 55:56, 55:72-74
            Those in the Garden will be attended by immortal youths with wide, lovely eyes. (Or it might be white raisins instead of immortal youths.) 56:17-23

            Allah assures Muhammad that he is not a madman. 68:2
            “Thou [Muhammad] art of a tremendous nature.”
            What would Muhammad do? 68:4
            When disbelievers hear the Quran, they roll their eyes and say “he [Muhammad] is indeed mad.” 68:51
            At the end of the world the earth with the mountains will be lifted up and crushed with one crash. 69:14
            Disbelievers live in denial. 85:19
            The Quran “is a conclusive word.” 86:13
            Allah will grab those who deny His guidance by the forelock and call the guards of hell. 96:13-18

          • Bin SATAN, this SLIME came out of YOUR maggoty SKULL :
            “YOU FUCKING DEMENTED LIAR! YOU HAVE£ STATED REPEATEDLY THAT JESUS NEVER EXISTED, SO WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU QUOTING SOMEONE, WHO YOU SAY NEVER EXISTED?
            THIS IS PROOF POSITIVE THAT YOU ARE A LUNATIC!”.

            So..let us REPEAT and see who NEEDS THE mental ASYLUM!

            “You asked, why I QUOTE verses from the Bible since I have said that Jesus NEVER existed, correct? That is a very good question…WHICH would NOT normally come out of your COCONUT head!!

            The answer is very simple…in fact it is two fold :

            1. Socrates was the creation of Plato…as James Bond is the making of Ian Fleming. We know that Socrates never lived yet we read THE REPUBLIC and the SYMPOSIUM Books of Plato. Why?? Similarly, we know that James Bond is a fictitious character just like our Bachelor Boy Jesus, YET we watch the movies with appreciation, why?? I do the same for the Fictitious Jesus…is there anything wrong with that?

            2. The Bible has been written FROM THE COLLECTION OF TRADITIONAL Rites and Judaic CUSTOMS, etc,…. by some learned people of some centuries past, with good vision and thus it contains a lot of Literature…. since it is an OPEN Book for ALL to read, I do NOT think a person like YOU, Bin SATAN, should have any objection to my comments on what IT says.

            And YOU have mentioned on ALL occasions that the Quran is fictitious…then WHY do YOU comment on the Quran KNOWING that it IS FAKE??

            Why don’t YOU, bin SATAN, ask YOURSELF…why do YOU comment from the BOOK
            that YOU have falsified? THIS IS THE PROOF POSITIVE THAT YOU ARE A LUNATIC of first QUALITY….and that YOU ought to be the registered and rubber stamped on YOUR bums with…….”THIS Bin SATAN is a MENTAL case and needs to be thrown in the dungeons of the ASYLUM….a WHOLESOME LUNATIC!

          • MUHAMMAD WAS A CUCKSUCKING, WANKING CHILD MOLESTER:

            THE PERFECT EXAMPLE FOR MANKIND

            “PARAGON OF MORAL PERFECTION”

            THE PERFECT MUSLIM

            And surely thou hast sublime morals
            (Surat Al-Qalam 68:4).

            Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar
            (Surat Al-Ahzab 33:21).

            “Say (O Muhammad to mankind): ‘If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow Quran and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.’ Say (O Muhammad): ‘Obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad).’ But if they turn away, then Allah does not like the disbelievers.”
            (Quran: 3:31)

            “And whatever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatever he forbids you, leave it. And fear Allah: truly Allah is severe in punishment.
            (Quran 59:7)

            Muslims believe that the Koran is the eternal word/laws of god to acts as a divine guidance for mankind about how to live a moral, righteous life. Prophet Muhammad, the highest perfection of human life and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct in Islamic belief, emulated the guidance of Allah perfectly.

            MOHAMMED GAVE BLOWJOBS TO HIS GRANDSON:

            SURA 52:24
            “And there shall wait on them [the Muslim men] young boys of their own, as fair as virgin pearls.”
            Hadith Number 16245, Volume Title: “The Sayings of the Syrians,” Chapter
            Title: “Hadith of Mu’awiya Ibn Abu Sufyan”: “I saw the prophet – pbuh –
            sucking on the tongue or the lips of Al-Hassan son of Ali, may the
            prayers of Allah be upon him. For no tongue or lips that the prophet
            sucked on will be tormented (by hell fire)

            ALLAH’S ARITHMETIC: 54 INTO 9 GOES NICELY

            THE WANKING PERVERT FROM MECCA

            A marriage is engaged in by 2 consenting adults.
            Do you really believe a 6 year old child would desire to marry a 51 year old man?
            Do you think that is what she would choose?
            Do you think a 9 year old girl would desire to have sex with a 54 year old?

            The thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the most disturbing thoughts that makes us cringe as it reminds us of pedophilia and the most despicable people. It is difficult to accept that the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca married Aisha when she was 6-years-old and WANKED BETWEEN HER THIGHS FOR 3 YEARS and consummated/RAPED her when she was 9. He was then, 54 years old.
            MUHAMMAD: HIS SEX LIFE, SEX ABUSE & CHILD MOLESTING

            Muslims believe that the Koran is the eternal word/laws of god to acts as a divine guidance for mankind about how to live a moral, righteous life. Prophet Muhammad, the highest perfection of human life and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct in Islamic belief, emulated the guidance of Allah perfectly. Let us investigate how did the prophet live Islam; how did the prophet apply the eternal teachings of God in his daily life? In this search for the historical Muhammad, we will utilize the Islam’s holy books, its own writings.

            MUHAMMAD’S MOLESTATION OF BABY AISHA

            Muhammad fantasized about baby Aisha before soliciting her from her father.
            Sahih Bukhari 9.140
            Narrated ‘Aisha:
            Allah’s apostle said to me, “you were shown to me twice (in my dream) before I married you. I saw an angel carrying you in a silken piece of cloth, and I said to him, ‘uncover (her),’ and behold, it was you. I said (to myself), ‘if this is from Allah, then it must happen.
            AISHA’S FATHER DID NOT APPROVE AT FIRST
            Aisha’s father, Abu Bakr, wasn’t on board at first, but Muhammad explained how the rules of their religion made it possible. This is similar to the way that present-day cult leaders manipulate their followers into similar concessions.
            Sahih Bukhari 7.18
            Narrated ‘Ursa:
            The prophet asked abu Bakr for ‘Aisha’s hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said “but I am your brother.” the prophet said, “you are my brother in Allah’s religion and his book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry.”

            MUHAMMAD WOULD THIGH WITH BABY AISHA

            HOW TO THIGH & GET HIGH

            Now let us see how thighing is practiced on a female child & who began this evil practice. According to an official Fatwa issued in Saudi Arabia, the prophet Muhammad began to practice thighing his child-bride, Aisha when she was 6 years old until she reached 9 years of age (Fatwa No. 31409). The hadith mentioned the prophet Muhammad started performing literal sex with Aisha ONLY when she reached the age of 9 (Sahih al-Bukhari, book 62, hadith No. 89).

            Muslim scholars collectively agree, a child becomes an adult, available for sexual intercourse as soon as she reaches the age of nine. Likewise, the Shari’a allows any of the faithful to marry a six-year-old child.

            According to the fatwa, the prophet Muhammad could not have sex with his fiancée, Aisha when she was six due to her small size & age. However, the fatwa said that at age six, he would put his penis between her thighs and massage it gently because he did not want to harm her.

            Imagine a man of 51 removing the clothes of a 6-year-old girl and slipping his erect penis between her thighs, rubbing her until he ejaculated and his semen ran down her thighs. To this day, this is considered a benevolent act on the part of the adult male “not wanting to harm her.” What harm could be inflicted upon a young girl mentally and emotionally if not a grown man showing her his penis and stripping her of her clothes and rubbing his male organ between her legs?

            Of course the twisted mind that does such an evil to a female child, would not hesitate to ejaculate on her body. And if this sexually perverted evil frame of mind committed such an act upon a child, the pedophile would not stop at ejaculating on her. His evil desire would go further and rape the child before she was a mature adult. This is exactly what Muhammad did to Aisha when she was yet a child of 9.
            Before she reached puberty, he began to have sex with her. Let us see what the fatwa said about the prophet of Islam and his child-bride, Aisha.”Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the one after whom there is no [further] prophet. After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwas (religious decrees) reviewed the question presented to the grand Mufti Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Shamari, with reference number 1809 issued on 3/8/1421(Islamic calendar).

            The inquirer asked the following: ‘It has become wide spread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufakhathat of the children (mufakhathat literally translated means “placing between the thighs of children” which means placing the male erected penis between the thighs of a child). What is the opinion of scholars knowing full well that the prophet, the peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, also practiced the “thighing” of Aisha – the mother of believers ?’

            After the committee studied the issue, they gave the following reply: ‘It has not been the practice of the Muslims throughout the centuries to resort to this unlawful practice that has come to our countries from pornographic movies that the kofar (infidels) and enemies of Islam send. As for the Prophet, peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, thighing his fiancée Aisha. She was six years of age and he could not have intercourse with her due to her small age.

            That is why the prophet peace and prayers of Allah be upon him placed his penis between her thighs and massaged it lightly, as the apostle of Allah had control of his penis not like other believers'” (Fatwa No. 31409).

            Thighing of children is practiced in many Arab and Muslim countries, notably in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and the Gulf countries. Also evil practices like altamatu’a bil almuka’aba (pleasure from sexual contact with her breasts), altamatu’a bil alsagirah (pleasure from sexual contact with a baby girl), altamatu’a bil alradi’ah, (pleasure from sexual contact with a suckling female infant), (Reported by Baharini Women’s Rights Activist, Ghada Jamshir)

            AISHA WASHING SEMEN FROM MUHAMMAD’S CLOTHES

            From the Hadith of Bukhari:

            Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

            Narrated ‘Aisha:

            I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

            Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

            Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

            I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

            ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED THE RAPE OF FEMALE CAPTIVES:

            RAPE JIHAD:

            Sahih Muslim Book 08. N 3371Marriage

            Chapter: Al-Azl (incomplete sexual intercourse): Coitus Interruptus.

            Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) mentioning al-‘azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women;

            and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.
            So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him?

            So we asked Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.

            REMEMBER:

            ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF GOD

            ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED RAPE

            Al-‘AZL

            Al-‘Azl, (العزل) also known as coitus interruptus, is the practice of having sexual intercourse with a woman but withdrawing the penis before ejaculation. Apparently al-‘Azl with female captives and slaves was a pretty important topic for Muhammad and his companions as evidenced by the abundance of Hadith material on the subject.
            Practiced during Muhammad’s lifetime & ALL OVER EUROPE TODAY

            Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle .
            Sahih Bukhari 7:62:135

            Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interrupt us while the Quran was being revealed. Jabir added: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed.
            Sahih Bukhari 7:62:136

            Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah’s Apostle he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus(RAPE WITHOUT PREGNANCY)?” The Prophet said, “Do you really do that? It is better for you not to PULL OUT. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.”

            Sahih Bukhari 3:34:432

            Abu Said said, “We went with Allah’s Apostle, in the Ghazwa of Barli Al-Mustaliq and we captured some of the ‘Arabs as captives, and the long separation from our wives was pressing us hard and we wanted to practice coitus interruptus. We asked Allah’s Apostle (whether it was permissible). He said, “It is better for you not to do so. No soul, (that which Allah has) destined to exist, up to the Day of Resurrection, but will definitely come, into existence.”
            Sahih Bukhari 3:46:718

    • PROPHET MUHAMMAD WAS MURDERED

      Section : Articles || Date : 2010 / 06 / 17 || Reading : 17026

      This article is the transcription of a lecture delivered by His Eminence Shaykh Yasser Al-Habib, on “Who Killed Allah’s Messenger?”

      Even today the Muslims know very little of their Prophet’s history (Peace be upon him and his pure family). Therefore, they believe he died a natural death, but in fact, he had been assassinated. This fact should not come as a surprise to anyone, given the fact that the Holy Quran had predicted it clearly in Chapter Aal Imran as Allah the Almighty said:”And Muhammad is no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him; if then he died or is killed will you then turn back upon your heels? And whoever turns back upon his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah; and Allah will reward the grateful.” (144:3).

      Let’s pay particular attention to this section: “if then he died or is killed”. It confirms that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) would not die a natural death. Rather, it confirms that he would be killed. The conjunctive (or) in this verse means “Rather”. In Arabic, sometimes (or) indicates uncertainty and probability. In other contexts, it imparts correction. Since it is next to impossible that anyone should suspect Allah’s word, since He has insight into the unknown, Allah must have intended to impart the other meaning. Accordingly, the meaning of the verse is: “If he died, rather, he is killed, you turn upon your heels.” By analogy, Allah said in Chapter Al Saffat, speaking of Prophet Yunis (Peace be upon him); “And We sent him to a hundred thousand, or they exceeded.” (37:147) That is, “And We sent him to a hundred thousand, rather they exceeded.”

      In Hadiths, even those reported by the Bakri sect, it is confirmed that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) was martyred. For example, Ahmed Ibn Hanbal, Al-Tabarani and Al-Sanaani among other famous scholars of the Bakri sect, reported Abdullah Ibn Massoud, a companion to Allah’s Prophet, saying: “I am willing to take an oath nine times that the Prophet was murdered, but I am not willing to take an oath even once that he was not. This is because Allah made him a Prophet and a martyr as well.”(Refer: Masnad Ahmed, Vol I, Page 408; Mojam Al-Tabrani, Vol X, Page 109; Musannaf Al-Sanaani, Vol V, Page 268).

      How then was the Prophet murdered, and who were the perpetrators of such a heinous crime? In fact, it is from this point that the paths of Shiites and the Bakri sect diverge. While Bakri sect claim that the Prophet was poisoned by the Jews, Shiites stress that he was poisoned by his two wives Ayesha and Hafsa, as commanded by their fathers Abu Bakr and Omar. Let us take a look at the evidences of each party to decide which one is true.

      Bakri sect says that when the Prophet’s army won the Kheibar battle defeating the army of the Jews, a Jewish woman, Zeinab Bint Al-Harith invited him and his companions to a banquet. That woman wanted to take revenge upon the Prophet because her brother Murhab Bin Al-Harith, who was commander of the Jewish Army, had been killed by Imam Ali (Peace be upon him) and this had led to the victory of the Muslim Army. The Jewish leaders used the woman’s desire to take revenge and goaded her into assassinating the Prophet. She poisoned the meat she cooked for the Prophet and his fellows. The Prophet died after having the poisoned meat.

      This is the belief of Bakri sect, but it can easily be refuted by the following scientific evidence:

      Firstly, the Khaibar Battle took place in the seventh year of Hegira. While the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) died in the eleventh year. This means that there is a time gap of four years between the two incidents. It is very unlikely that a person dies because of a poison he had taken so many years ago. It is also because generally the effect of poison is immediate and even if it takes time it cannot exceed a few months in which the health condition deteriorates gradually. In the case of the Prophet, we notice that he had been in the peak of his health and throughout the said four years he had no unusual health complaints. He would participate in the battles to defend Muslims as usual. Thus, it defies any logic that his health deteriorated suddenly and he died of a poison he had had taken more than four years ago despite the fact that he enjoyed good health throughout that intervening period.

      Secondly, if we accept that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) consumed that poisoned food, it will be a proof of his not being a true Prophet– May Allah forbid! This is because it was the Jews and the woman who wanted to put the Prophet under trial by means of their scheme. Is he truly a Prophet who gets revelation from Allah? If he was a Prophet, he would know that this food was poisoned and would not consume it. If not, he would consume it. Authentic Hadiths provide that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) knew it and did not consume the food. He admonished his retinue not to consume it either. This was one of his miracles due to which the Jewish woman was so impressed that she converted to Islam, for that she earned the Prophet’s forgiveness and exemption from punishment.

      Al-Bukhari and Al-Darami and other famous scholars of Bakri Sect relate that “When Muslims won the battle of Kheibar, the Jews invited the Prophet to a banquet in which they had served poisoned mutton. The Prophet ordered his followers to call up all the Jews to speak to them. When they were present, he asked them: “If I ask you something, will you answer me honestly?” “Yes”, they answered. “Have you put poison in this mutton?” he asked. “Yes”, they answered. “Why?” he wondered. “We wanted to know whether you are a true prophet or not” they answered. “If you are a true prophet, this would not hurt you. But, if you are not, we would get rid of you”. (Refer: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol IV, Page 66; Sunan Al-Darmi, Vol I, Page 33).

      Al-Khateb relates: “A Jewish woman cooked poisoned mutton and offered it to the Prophet and his retinue. The Prophet said to his retinue: “Do not consume this food. It is poisoned. He then asked the woman: “Why have you done this?”, to which question she answered, “So that I can tell whether you are a true or false prophet? If you are true, Allah will reveal you that this food is poisoned so you won’t consume it. But, if you were false, you would eat it and die. Thereby, I would relieve people of you.” (Refer: History of Baghdad, Vol VII, Page 384).

      Contrary to these Hadiths, there are other Hadiths that tell that the Prophet actually consumed some of that food. In the process, he admonished his followers to stop eating, and that one of them did really die. The Prophet ordered to have the woman killed. Obviously, these Hadiths are not authentic, and cannot be trusted. As we have already pointed out, this is because they mean that the Prophet was false, having discovered that the food was poisoned so late that one of his followers had already become a victim.

      It should be noted that Al-Baihiqi and Abu Dawood and other famous scholars of the Bakri Sect confirmed that the Prophet neither killed, nor punished Zeinab Bint Al-Harith. (Refer: Sunann Al-Baihiqi Vol VIII, Page 46; Sunan Abu Dawood , Vol II, Page 369).

      Al-Zohri, a great ancient scholar, confirmed that the Jewish woman was not killed although this was commonly believed by some people. Rather, she converted to Islam, and was forgiven by the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family). (Refer: Musannaf Al-Sanaani, Vol XI, Page 29, Prophet’s Biography by Ibn Kathier, Vol III, Page 389).

      Third: a most significant Hadith as maintained by the Bakri sect to ascribe Prophet’s sudden death to the poisoning attempt by the Jews four years ago, is one that was reported by Bukhari from Ayesha. She relates: “Allah’s Prophet told me on his death bed, ‘Ayesha, since I consumed that poisoned food after the Kheibar Battle, I have been in pain. Now it is the time for my heart to stop beating because of that poison.” (Refer: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol V, Page 137).

      We cannot trust that Hadith for many reasons: one of which is the fact that Ayesha is an infamous liar. She would lie even to the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family). Al-Bukhari reported Ayesha saying: “Allah’s Prophet was eating honey at Zeinab Bint Jahsh place. So Hafsa and I agreed to tell him, upon his return that he smelled of Maghafeer”. (Refer: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol 6, Page 68. Maghafeer is a substance extracted from a tree. It has a sweet taste but very foul smell.)

      Ayesha knew that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) had taken honey from his other wife, Zeinab Bint Jahsh. Being jealous of her, she agreed with her friend, Hafsa, to hurt the Prophet by claiming that he smelled foul when he consumed that honey. Thereby, he would stop eating it, and consequently stop visiting his wife, Zeinab.

      That was a lie. A woman, who would not abstain from lying to the noblest prophet, would not abstain from lying to ordinary people, either. Therefore, the Hadiths reported by her cannot be trusted, especially when she, herself, was accused of being involved in the murder of the Prophet. Naturally, she would try to divert suspicion by pointing fingers at others.

      Let us not forget that the Holy Quran stated that Ayesha and Hafsa were sinful wrongdoers whose hearts deviated from the true path. Allah warned them that by merely marrying the Prophet, they would not be exempted from going to hell. This was set forth in the Chapter Al Tahreem: “If you both turn to Allah, then indeed your hearts are already inclined (to this); and if you back up each other against him, then surely Allah is his Guardian, and Jibreel and the believers that do good, and the angels after that are the helpers. (…) Allah sets forth an example to those who disbelieve the wife of Nuh and the wife of Lut: they were both under two of our righteous servants, but they acted treacherously towards them so they availed them naught against Allah, and it was said: Enter both the fire with those who enter.” (66:10 &4)

      Two women who lie and receive harsh words from Allah in a full chapter would not abstain from lying. Undoubtedly, they were poised to commit any misdeed, even if it was the assassination of the Prophet himself.

      Let us not forget that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) had described Ayesha as “The spearhead of disbelief and the horn of Satan”. Ahmed Ibn Hanbal and other famous scholars of Bakri Sect related: “The Prophet, (Peace be upon him), emerged from Ayesha’s room saying this is the spearhead of disbelief! It is from here that Satan’s horn emerges”! (Refer: Masnad Ahmed, Vol II, Page 23).

      A woman condemned by Allah as wrongdoer, and threatened to be tortured in hell if she does not repent, and one described by the Prophet as the spearhead of disbelief and Satan’s horn; one who confesses to having lied to the Prophet is a woman whose Hadiths cannot be trusted, especially if they seem to be in her favour.

      One of the reasons why we should not believe in Ayesha’s Hadith about poisoning the Prophet is that she contradicts herself in another Hadith. She claimed that the Prophet did not die because of the Jewish woman’s poison. Rather, the cause of his death was because of another disease! According to Abu Yoalla, Ayesha also said that: “Allah’s Prophet, (Peace be upon him), died of an ailment Dhatul Janb”! (Refer: Masnad Abu Yoalla, Vol. VIII, Page 258. Dhadul Janb is an internal tumour that forms on man’s side. It leads to death when it explodes.)

      Ayesha claimed that, although the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) had ruled out the possibility of the Prophet developing such a tumour due to its being a demonic one that a Prophet would not develop. The Prophet said of that tumour: “It is Satanic, and I cannot develop it because Allah has delivered me from any of Satan’s powers”. (Refer: The Beginning and the End, Ibn Katheir, Vol. V, Page 245).

      It seems that Ayesha was confused while putting her point before the general public with regard to the issue of Prophet’s killing. When she claimed he died because of that Jewish woman’s poison consumed four years ago, people did not find that very plausible. Therefore, she came up with another cause of death. Therefore, she made up another reason, namely that of the lateral tumor. Thereby, she contradicted herself. This confusion itself points fingers at her and even gives rise to suspicions about her.

      Now that we are sure of the implausibility of the Bakri version of the Prophet’s murder (Peace be upon him and his pure family) due to the shortcomings, contradictions and poor evidence. Now, we can move on to the Shiite version.

      Generally, Shiite Hadiths are more credible. They are a set of the statements by the Imams from the Prophet’s family (Peace be upon them all). Undoubtedly, those Imams were far better informed of their grandfather’s, the Prophet’s, history and of his religion. None of them may lie, because the Quran confirmed their innocence against the sins. The Prophet had ordered that their words and deeds be followed. All Muslims agree to the fact that those Imams were very truthful, noble, faithful and chaste.

      The Imams confirmed that their grandfather, the Prophet, had been poisoned in his last days by Ayesha and Hafsa, at the order of their fathers, Abu Bakr and Omar. Abu Bakr and Omar were conspiring to usurp the throne after the demise of the Prophet. However, the Prophet would also stress that his rightful successor would be his cousin, and the husband of his daughter, Imam Ali (Peace be upon him). He even coerced them once to pledge allegiance to him on the Ghadir Day.

      At the same time, the Prophet brought to light the fact that some of his companions and wives would turn against his successor. He warned his followers against this, stressing that it would be their test from Allah. Those who would show their allegiance to the rightful successor would pass the test and go to heaven. While those who would let him down and support the rebels, would go to the eternal hell since they would be apostates. That is, deserters who converted back to disbelief, even if they called themselves Muslims.

      Sometimes, the Prophet would confront Abu Bakr, Omar, Ayesha and Hafsa with the fact that they hated his heir, predicting in their presence that their conspiracy would succeed to oust him from power. The Prophet did that as ordered by Allah to put those four into a further test.

      One of the famous ancient Shia interpreters of Quran relates a Hadith as reported by the Imams that further elaborates on the Prophet’s assassination. That interpreter is Ali Ibn Ibrahim Al-Qommi, a great scholar who lived in the days of Imam Al-Hassan Al-Askry (Peace be upon him). He was known among Shias for his veracity and honesty in the way he related Hadith from Imams.

      The Hadith reported by Ali Ibn Ibrahim says: “The Prophet said to Hafsa: I will tell you a secret. If you divulge it, Allah, His Angels and people will curse you. So, what is it? wondered Hafsa. The Prophet said: Abu Bakr will be able to seize the Caliphate and power after me, and will be succeeded by your father, Omar. Hafsa wondered: Who informed you of this? Allah, the Omnipresent, the Omniscient informed me. On the same day, Hafsa divulged the secret to her friend, Ayesha. In turn, Ayesha divulged the secret to her father, Abu Bakr. So, Abu Bakr came to Omar and said: My daughter Ayesha told me a secret reported by Hafsa, but I cannot always trust what Ayesha says. So, you ask your daughter Hafsa, make sure and tell me. Omar went over to Hafsa, and asked her. In the beginning, she was startled and denied it. But, Omar said to her: If you have indeed heard this secret, then, tell us so we can immediately seize power and get rid of Muhammad”. So, Hafsa said, yes, he told me that. At this point, those four got together and conspired to poison the Prophet” (Refer: Tafseer al-Qommi, Vol II, Page 367, Bihar-ul-Anwar by Allama al-Majlisi, Vol XXII, Page 239).

      There is another great ancient scholar of the Quran, Muhammad Ibn Massoud al-Ayashi who also belonged to the Bakri sect, but was later divinely guided to the true faith and converted to Shia faith and believed in the Imams. That scholar lived till the end of Third Century Hegira. Scholars have ever since relied on his book that he wrote to interpret the Holy Quran (Tafseer).

      When this great scholar reaches the point where he interpreted the verse I have referred to earlier, he relates a Hadith reported by al-Imam al-Sadiq (Peace be upon him) in which he confirms that Abu Bakr, Omar, Ayesha and Hafsa had committed the crime. Imam al-Sadiq (Peace be upon him) was sitting with a group of his followers, and asked them: “Do you know whether the Prophet died a natural death or was murdered? Allah the Almighty says: “if then he died or is killed”. The truth is that the Prophet was poisoned in his last days before he died. Ayesha and Hafsa administered poison in his food. Upon hearing this, the Imam Sadiq’s followers said that they and their fathers were among the worst villains ever created by Allah.” (Refer: Tafseer al-Ayashi, Vol I, Page 200; Bihar-ul-Anwar, by Allama Al-Majlisi, Vol XXII, Page 516)

      Al-Ayshi relates another Hadith attributed to Imam Al-Sadiq (Peace be upon him) in which he says: “al-Hussein Ibn Munther asked Imam Al-Sadiq about Allah’s words “if then he dies or is killed will you turn back upon your heels”. Does it mean that the Prophet died a natural death or was murdered? Imam Al-Sadiq said: In this verse, Allah refers to the Prophet’s companions who committed the misdeed”. (Refer: Tafseer Al Ayash, Vol I, Page 200; Bihar-ul-Anwar, By Allama Al-Majlisi, Vol XX, Page 91)

      These Hadiths confirm beyond doubt that the Supreme Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) was killed by poison administered in his last days and not which was allegedly given four years prior to his death. They also confirm that the crime was an act of treachery by his two wives and their fathers. Jews had nothing to do with this.

      If we take a closer look at the Quranic verse that speaks of the Prophet’s death, we notice its consistency with these Hadiths. The verse says: “And Muhammad is no more than an apostle; the apostles have already passed away before him; if then he dies or is killed will you turn back upon your heels? And whoever turns back upon his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah and Allah will reward the grateful.” (3:144).

      In that verse, Allah addresses the Prophet’s companions and not the Jews. The verse associates the (Prophet’s death) and the (turning back), which means apostasy. We hereby understand that the assassination of the Prophet was to be followed by turning back and apostasy. This actually happened, and turned in favour of the rebels who seized power, i.e. Abu Bakr and Omar. Thus, it was addressed to the accused in the first place and not to the Jews who were no longer a threat in Medina .

      It is true that the verse was quoted in relation to the Uhud battle, to reprimand the Prophet’s companions who had let him down, by fleeing and leaving him alone with Imam Ali amidst the non-Muslim warriors. But, the verse also speaks of the future. It says that a group of people would turn back and become apostates. They would bring no harm to Allah, because they would actually be harming themselves as they would go to hell. On the other hand, another group of people would keep their faith and would be well rewarded by Allah and enter the Heaven. This is because they were grateful to Allah for His blessings by keeping their allegiance to His Prophet and his rightful successor.

      It is now evident that the crime was described by these Hadiths and this is in consistence with the Quran. Therefore, it is obvious that the Shiite version of the Prophet’s assassination is trustworthy.

      But is there any evidence in the resources of Bakri sect, that supports the Shiite version and shows involvement of the Prophet’s two wives in the crime?

      In fact, most of the Hadiths that reach us through the pious Imams from among the Prophet’s descendants (peace be upon all of them) are supported by Hadiths in Bakri resources, even if implicitly. It is here that the power of Shiism, as it does not rely only on Shiite resources. Rather, it brings forth supporting evidence from the sources of other sects for the facts put forth by the Imams.

      There is a Hadith related by the famous scholars of Bakri sect like Bukhari, Muslim, Ahmed Ibn Hanbal and Ibn Kathier. In that Hadith, Ayesha confesses that when the Prophet was sleep during his illness she put a strange substance into his mouth with the help of the other wives. Ayesha did it intentionally despite Prophet’s prohibition. When the Prophet woke up, he saw the residuals of the substance that they had put into his mouth. He angrily asked what it was and who had disobeyed his orders. Ayesha and her collaborators justified their action saying that it was just a medication. Following that, they accused the Prophet’s uncle, Al-Abbas Ibn Abdul Muttalib. However, the Prophet acquitted his uncle and ordered that those who were with him in the room should be punished by having the same substance put into their mouths.

      Ayesha relates: “When Allah’s Prophet contracted the terminal disease, he told us: Don’t put the medicine in my mouth. But we disobeyed him on the ground that every patient dislikes medication! So, we put the substance in his mouth. When he
      regained his senses, he wondered: Who did that? Have I not admonished you not to do that? So, we said: It is your uncle Al-Abbas who thought that you might have contracted a lateral tumour! The Prophet said: This disease is caused by the Devil. I cannot contract it. The Prophet ordered that everyone in the house must put the same substance into their mouths, except Al-Abbas, as the Prophet said: He was not with you”. (Refer: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol VIII, Page 42; Sahih Muslim, Vol VII, Page 42; Masnad Ahmed Ibn Hanbal, Vol VI, Page 53; Prophet’s Biography by Ibn Kathier, Vol. IV, Page 446).

      It seems that people were confused about what had happened to the Prophet. This was the matter that forced Ayesha to relate this Hadith in an attempt to falsify and conceal the truth. She wanted to hide the truth of the substance that she put into the mouth of the Prophet, claiming that it was a medication. She explained that what she made was “lad”, which means administering medication to a side of the mouth.

      What exactly was that strange substance? Why did Ayesha and her collaborators intend to put it into the Prophet’s mouth during his sleep? Why did Ayesha and her collaborators falsely accuse Al-Abbas of the crime? Why did the Prophet order to have them punished by putting the substance into their mouth? Basically… how could Ayesha and her collaborators disobey the word of the Prophet?

      These controversies prove that a serious crime was perpetrated against the Prophet. If there had been no crime, the Prophet would not have ordered to punish the perpetrators. If that substance had been indeed a medicine, the Prophet would not have forbidden it to be put into his mouth. This would not have stirred his anger.
      Therefore, that substance must have been the poison that the Prophet’s children spoke of later. Those who helped Ayesha prepare it must have been Hafsa, Abu Bakr and Omar whose names were not revealed by Ayesha in her Hadith on that strange substance. Their interest was associated with the Prophet’s homicide, as they were going to seize power and oust his family from there.

      There remains a question unanswered: Can the two wives of the Prophet dare to kill him? Is it possible that Abu Bakr and Omar, who were among the Prophet’s companions, dared to commit such a crime?

      The answer is: It is not unlikely at all, because the Quran mentioned that the two wives of the prophets, Noah and Lut betrayed them and would go to hell. These verses in the Chapter Al Tahreem were revealed in the first place to address Ayesha and Hafsa by citing this example. In the same chapter, Allah testified the infidelity and wrongdoing of Ayesha and Hafsa. He threatened them strongly should they fail to repent, as I explained earlier.

      Quran predicted that the Prophet’s companions would turn against him as I have said earlier. The Prophet had also predicted in his several Hadiths that most of his companions would go to hell. History reveals that most betrayals and acts of treacheries that occurred after the Prophets were committed by their wives and companions.

      Al-Bukhari related that the Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) said: “On doomsday, when I will be at the water pond delivering water to those who will be thirsty among my followers, a group of my followers will come to drink but the angels will drive them away and take them to Hell! And I’ll say: Oh, God! They are my companions! But God will tell me: You do not know what they did after your death. They degraded themselves to apostasy. Following that, another group of my companions will come to drink but the angels will drive them away and take them to Hell. And I’ll say: Oh, God! They are my companions! But God will tell me: You do not know what they did after your death. They degraded themselves to apostasy. Thus, only small number of my companions will escape like deserted camels in the desert.” (Refer: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol VII, Page 206).

      No one can claim that Abu Bakr cannot be among those people who will be driven to Hell, since the Prophet himself did not exempt him from that.
      Imam of the Malki school of thought, Malik Ibn Anas, relates that the Prophet prophesied to the Muslim martyrs of Uhud that they would go to Heaven. So, Abu Bakr wondered: “Aren’t we their brothers who have submitted to Islam just as they did, and fought in jihad just as they did; so, why don’t you give us the good news that we will go to heaven? The Prophet said: “It is absolutely true that you are their brothers, but I do not know what you will do after my death”. (Refer: Al Muatta of Malik Ibn Anas, Vol II, Page 642).

      Therefore, we should not exempt Abu Bakr and Omar from the crime of having taken the life of the Prophet, especially when they had tried that once before when the Prophet was on his way back from the city of Tabuk. He had to go past a rough road up a mountain. That road is called Al-Aqaba by Arabs. Those who have to go down it, on a camel for example; must choose a camel with a very quiet disposition. Should it panic, it will trip and its rider will fall and die. Abu Bakr and Omar conspired with a group of the Prophet’s hypocrite companions. They would lie in wait for the Prophet at the time of his crossing this Aqaba to frighten his camel so that she falls and he dies. This fact was reported also by the Bakri resources in clear terms, but the Bakri people try to hide and deny this fact.

      Ibn Hazm Al-Alndulsi, a famous scholar of Bakri Sect, lashed at Al-Waleed Ibn Jamia, dismissing him as a liar. But why? Ibn Hazm says: “Because he related Hadiths that state that Abu Bakr, Omar, Othman, Talha and Sa’ad Ibn Abi Waqqas wanted to kill the Prophet and made sure that he met with the accident in Tabuk”. (Refer: Al Mohalla of Ibn Hazm, Vol. IX, Page 224).

      Al-Walid Ibn Jamia was not a Shiite. He belonged to the Bakri sect. Contrary to what Ibn Hazm said about him, he is so widely known for veracity and credibility that Ibn Habban would say “May Allah be pleased with him”, whenever his name was mentioned. The famous scholar of Bakri Sect in this field, “Al-Thahabi” also testified the truthfulness and credibility of this man. If he had not been honest, he would not have his Hadiths related by the famous compilers of Hadith like Muslim, Al-Baihiqi, Ahmed Ibn Hanbal and Ibn Shabba.

      So, Al-Walid Ibn Jamia is not a liar. This proves that Abu Bakr, Omar and their group indeed tried to murder the Prophet as he was passing through Al-Aqaba on his way back from Tabuk. This is a famous incident in which Allah saved the life of His Prophet by a miracle. The Prophet forgave the perpetrators and refrained from punishing them.

      Thereby, we can be sure that Abu Bakr and Omar indeed wanted to kill the Prophet. Though, their plan in Aqaba failed, their next plan succeeded by collusion with their daughters Ayesha and Hafsa who administered poison to the Prophet during his sleep. Just as the Prophet forgave those who tried to kill him in Al-Aqaba, Imam Ali did the same after the martyrdom of the Prophet, fulfilling the will of the Prophet so that Allah’s test continues for them and for the humanity as a whole.

      In fact, the Prophet was just a normal patient. During his sleep, Ayesha and Hafsa administered this poison in the Prophet’s mouth, in order to hasten the seizure of power by their fathers, while ousting the rightful successor, Ali Ibn Abi Talib. It was in this way the greatest and the noblest Prophet (Peace be upon him and his pure family) fell prey to the treachery of his two wives and companions. This is a fact that most Muslims are not aware of.

      • Lucky bin SATAN, there is NO verse in the Quran that says HOW the Prophet died. Hadiths are the tales written by the Persian scribes to diminish ISLAM’s expansion and cause much CONFLICT amongst Muslims and Non believers that we see up to date!!

    • HOW ALLAH KILLED (MURDERED) HIS PROPHET

      Muhammad fails the prophetic criteria of the Holy Bible showing that, from a biblical perspective, the Allah of the Quran is not God, the Quran is not God’s Word, and Muhammad is not God’s prophet. Moreover, as astonishing as this may sound, Muhammad fails his own test, his own criteria of prophethood, and actually came under the very condemnation he warned of in the case of anyone who would want to tamper with God’s Word and/or concoct words in the name of God. This means that not only was Muhammad not a legitimate messenger of the true God according to the Holy Bible but that by his own standard which he set up in the Quran he was a person whom his own god rejected and condemned.

      A Quranic Criterion for a True Prophet

      One criterion that the Holy Bible gives is that the teachings of a prophet or a messenger must fully agree with the previous revelations:

      “If a prophet arises among you, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or wonder which he tells you comes to pass, and if he says, ‘Let us go after other gods,’ which you have not known, ‘and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or to that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you, to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall walk after the LORD your God and fear him, and keep his commandments and obey his voice, and you shall serve him and cleave to him. But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has taught rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to make you leave the way in which the LORD your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from the midst of you.” Deuteronomy 13:1-5

      “And this is love, that we follow his commandments; this is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you follow love. For many deceivers have gone out into the world, men who will not acknowledge the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh; such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. Look to yourselves, that you may not lose what you have worked for, but may win a full reward. Any one who goes ahead and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God; he who abides in the doctrine has both the Father and the Son. If any one comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into the house or give him any greeting; for he who greets him shares his wicked work.” 2 John 1:6-11

      The Quran also agrees with this criterion since it says:

      It is not (possible) that a man, to whom is given the Book, and Wisdom, and the prophetic office, should say to people: “Be ye my worshippers rather than God’s”: on the contrary (He would say) “Be ye worshippers of Him Who is truly the Cherisher of all: For ye have taught the Book and ye have studied it earnestly.” Nor would he instruct you to take angels and prophets for Lords and patrons. What! would he bid you to unbelief after ye have bowed your will (To God in Islam)? Behold! God took the covenant of the prophets, saying: “I give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you an apostle, CONFIRMING what is with you; do ye believe in him and render him help.” God said: “Do ye agree, and take this my Covenant as binding on you?” They said: “We agree.” He said: “Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.” S. 3:79-81 Y. Ali

      Other versions render Sura 3:81 slightly different:

      AND, LO, God accepted, THROUGH THE PROPHETS, this solemn pledge [from the followers of earlier revelation]: “If, after all the revelation and the wisdom which I have vouchsafed unto you, there comes to you an apostle CONFIRMING the truth already in your possession, you must believe in him and succour him. Do you” – said He – “acknowledge and accept My bond on this condition?” They answered: “We do acknowledge it.” Said He: “Then bear witness [thereto], and I shall be your witness.” S. 3:81 Asad

      Asad noted:

      Lit., “the solemn pledge of the prophets”. Zamakhshari holds that what is meant here is a pledge taken from the community as a whole: a pledge consisting in their acceptance of the messages conveyed through the prophets. (Source)

      The late Muhammad Ali translated it similarly to Asad:

      And when Allah made a covenant THROUGH THE PROPHETS: Certainly what I have been given you of Book and Wisdom – then a Messenger comes to you VERIFYING that which is with you, you shall believe in him, and you shall aid him. He said: Do you affirm and accept My compact in this (matter)? They said: We do affirm. He said: Then bear witness that I (too) am of the bearers of witness with you. M. Ali (Source)

      Ali explains the reason for his formulation in a footnote:

      81a. Mithaq al-nabiyyin means literally the covenant of the prophets, and may therefore signify either the covenant of the prophets with Allah or the covenant of the prophets with their people. As the words that follow are plainly addressed to the people, the Jews and the Christians being particularly addressed in the last two verses, I adopt the latter interpretation, and therefore translate the words as meaning a covenant through the prophets. Both Moses and Jesus especially laid an obligation on their people to accept the prophet about whom they prophesied. Thus, through Moses, Almighty God had warned the Israelites, after promising them “a prophet from among their brethren like unto thee”, and that “Whosoever will not hearken unto My words which he shall speak in My name, I will require of him” (Deuteronomy. 18:19). And Jesus was equally emphatic when, prophesying the advent of the Comforter, he added: “He will guide you into all the truth; for he shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak” (John 16:13). As a matter of fact the Prophet had his advent foretold by all the prophets of the world. The New Testament bears testimony to this: “Whom the heaven must receive until the time of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all of His holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me: him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you” (Acts 3:21, 22). The covenant referred to was made through each prophet separately as he appeared in the world. And just as all the prophets foretold the advent of the Prophet Muhammad and laid an obligation upon their people to accept him, so the Prophet Muhammad also told his followers to believe in all the prophets that had appeared among different people in different ages, and this is stated in what follows. The truth of the first statement that all the prophets foretold the advent of the Prophet Muhammad is borne out by the second statement that the Prophet would bear testimony to the truth of all the prophets of the world. (Source; bold emphasis ours)

      The foregoing is significant for at least two reasons.

      First, Surah 3:81 is presupposing that the previous Scriptures, i.e. the Holy Bible, are the criteria determining whether a person is a true or false prophet. The author of the Quran essentially accepted the fact that all messengers must be in full agreement with the teachings of the Holy Bible, otherwise they would be rejected.

      Second, the only way for Muhammad or anyone else claiming to be a messenger to be able to confirm the previous Scriptures is if these Books remained intact. If these texts were corrupted then the messenger wouldn’t be able to confirm them lest he be guilty of verifying scriptures that God had not inspired. And yet failing to confirm the Scriptures in the possession of the people before him would lead to a complete rejection of such a messenger. The people would consider such a person a false messenger for contradicting the Scriptures in their possession which they would view as being the uncorrupt revelations of God!

      To put it in another manner, the only way for the community of the prophets such as the Jews and Christians to know whether someone like Muhammad was a messenger is if he confirmed their Holy Scriptures. But if these Scriptures had been corrupted then there would be no way for the people to know who that messenger was since they no longer had the authentic Scriptures for him to confirm. This would lead them to conclude that such a person was a false messenger for not confirming their religious texts!

      It should not be hard for Muslims to see why this reasoning is valid. Just imagine another man coming today, claiming to be a prophet (or some other title to the effect that he is speaking with divine authority), and saying exactly what Muhammad said, i.e. he came to confirm what the earlier prophets said. Would Muslims accept him as a prophet because he claims to confirm what Muhammad had already said? The Muslim answer would obviously be no, since that person must not contradict the teachings of the Quran or Muhammad, and yet by claiming to be a prophet he would be contradicting the Quran’s testimony that Muhammad is the seal of the prophets.

      In fact, isn’t that what Baha’ullah (founder of the Baha’is) and Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (founder of the Ahmadiyya) did? Both acknowledge (confirm) Muhammad as a prophet and the Quran as divine revelation, but they are adding their own words to it. Their additional writings are foundational for the movements they have started. Yet Muslims reject them as false. Why would they if these men satisfy this quranic criterion of confirming the revelation that came before them?

      Just as Christians do, Muslims test the later claims to prophethood with the former revelation — and they are right in doing so. That has to be the principle.

      The foregoing leaves Muslims in a quagmire. If the Quran is to be believed then Muslims must accept the fact that the previous Scriptures have been preserved and Muhammad had to confirm them as true revelations. Yet, since these previous Scriptures of the Jews and Christians (i.e. the Holy Bible) contradict the teachings of the Quran and Muhammad on essential issues, this therefore means that Muhammad is a false prophet.

      In conclusion, Muhammad fails the very biblical criterion – accepted by the Quran itself – for determining whether a person is a true prophet or not.

      THE EVIDENCE

      The Quran warned Muhammad not to change the so-called revelation or invent sayings since Allah would punish him:

      And when Our signs are recited to them, clear signs, those who look not to encounter Us say, ‘Bring a Koran other than this, or alter it.’ Say: ‘It is not for me to alter it of my own accord. I follow nothing, except what is revealed to me. Truly I fear, if I should rebel against my Lord, the chastisement of a dreadful day.’ S. 10:15 Arberry

      it is the speech of a noble Messenger. It is not the speech of a poet (little do you believe) nor the speech of a soothsayer (little do you remember). A sending down from the Lord of all Being. Had he invented against Us any sayings, We would have seized him by the right hand, then We would surely have cut his life-vein. S. 69:40-46 Arberry

      Consider how harsh these warnings are… Allah threatens to kill Muhammad if he dared to concoct statements in his deity’s name or change the inspiration which supposedly came to him.

      These threats become all the more intriguing in light of the fact that, according to Muslim sources, Muhammad did change the message of the Quran due to the suggestions of one of his scribes who then apostatized as a result of it! In fact, according to Muslim sources, the following text:

      Who is more wicked than the man who invents a falsehood about God, or says: “This was revealed to me”, when nothing was revealed to him? Or the man who says, “I can reveal the like of what God has revealed”? S. 6:93 N.J. Dawood

      Was “revealed” in reference to this event:

      (Who is guilty) who is more tyrannical and more daring (of more wrong than he who forgeth a lie against Allah, or saith) Allah did not reveal anything, this is Malik Ibn al-Sayf, or him who says: (I am inspired) with a Scripture, (when he is not inspired in aught) with any Scripture, this is Musaylimah, the liar; (and who saith: I will reveal the like of that which Allah hath revealed) I will say the like of what Muhammad (pbuh) is saying: this is ‘Abdullah Ibn Sa’d Ibn Abi Sarh. (If thou couldst see) O Muhammad, (when the wrong-doers) the idolaters and the hypocrites, on the Day of Badr (reach the pangs of death and the angels stretch their hands out) to take out their souls, (saying: Deliver up your souls) your spirits. (This day) the Day of Badr, as it is said it is the Day of Judgement (ye are awarded doom of degradation) a severe doom (for that ye spake concerning Allah other than the Truth, and scorned) you thought yourselves too great to believe in Muhammad (pbuh) and the Qur’an, (His portents) Muhammad (pbuh) and the Qur’an. (Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs; bold, italic and underline emphasis ours)

      This same commentary asserts that Q. 16:106:

      Whoever disbelieved in Allah after his belief, except him who is forced thereto and whose heart is at rest with Faith but such as open their breasts to disbelief, on them is wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a great torment. Hilali-Khan

      Also refers to Ibn Abi Sarh’s apostasy:

      (Whoso disbelieveth in Allah after his belief) in Him, deserves Allah’s wrath (save him who is forced thereto) except the person who is coerced into disbelief (and whose heart is still content with Faith). This verse was revealed about ‘Ammar Ibn Yasir (but whoso findeth ease in disbelief) whosoever utters words of disbelief willingly: (On them is wrath from Allah. Theirs will be an awful doom) the most awful torment in this worldly life. This verse was revealed about ‘Abdullah Ibn Sa’d Ibn Abi Sarh. (Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs; bold emphasis ours)

      Other exegetes who concur with the foregoing tafsir regarding Abi Sarh being the one spoken of in Q. 6:93 include the following:

      (Who is guilty of more wrong than he who forgeth a lie against Allah, or saith: I am inspired…) [6:93]. This was revealed about the liar, Musaylimah al-Hanafi. This man was a soothsayer who composed rhymed speech and claimed prophethood. He claimed that he was inspired by Allah. (… and who saith: I will reveal the like of that which Allah hath revealed?) [6:93]. This verse was revealed about ‘Abd Allah ibn Sa‘d ibn Abi Sarh. This man had declared his faith in Islam and so the Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, called him one day to write something for him. When the verses regarding the believers were revealed (Verily, We created man from a product of wet earth…) [23:12-14], the Prophet dictated them to him. When he reached up to (and then produced it as another creation), ‘Abd Allah expressed his amazement at the precision of man’s creation by saying (So blessed be Allah, the Best of Creators!). The Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, said: “This [‘Abd Allah’s last expression] is how it was revealed to me”. At that point, doubt crept into ‘Abd Allah. He said: “If Muhammad is truthful, then I was inspired just as he was; and if he is lying, I have uttered exactly what he did utter”. Hence Allah’s words (and who saith: I will reveal the like of that which Allah hath revealed). The man renounced Islam. This is also the opinion of Ibn ‘Abbas according to the report of al-Kalbi. ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn ‘Abdan informed us> Muhammad ibn ‘Abd Allah ibn Nu‘aym> Muhammad ibn Ya‘qub al-Umawi> Ahmad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar> Yunus ibn Bukayr> Muhammad ibn Ishaq> Shurahbil ibn Sa‘d who said: “This verse was revealed about ‘Abd Allah ibn Sa‘d ibn Abi Sarh. The latter said: ‘I will reveal the like of that which Allah has revealed’, and renounced Islam. When the Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, entered Mecca, this man fled to ‘Uthman [ibn ‘Affan] who was his milk brother. ‘Uthman hid him until the people of Mecca felt safe. He then took him to the Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, and secured an amnesty for him”. (‘Ali ibn Ahmad al-Wahidi, Asbab al-Nuzul)

      The commentator Al-Qurtubi said,

      The pronoun “man” is grammatically in the jarr case. The meaning is who is more wicked than he who said I can reveal; the person addressed here is ‘Abdullâh Ibn Sâd Ibn Abî Sarh who used to write the revelation for the Prophet of God, later on he apostatized and joined the pagans. The reason given by the commentators is that when the verse 23:12 {We created man of an extraction of clay} was revealed, the Prophet called him and dictated it to him and when the Prophet reached the end of 23:14 {… thereafter We produced him as another creature} ‘Abdullâh said in amazement {So blessed be God the fairest of creators!}. The Prophet said: (and thus it was revealed to me) which made ‘Abdullâh doubt and say: “If Muhammad is truthful then I received the revelation and if he lied I say of the like of his speech.” So he apostatized and joined the pagans and this is concerning the segment {Or the man who says, “I can reveal the like of what God has revealed”}, narrated by Al-Kolaby from Ibn ‘Abbâs. It was also narrated by Muhammad Ibn Ishâq who said Sharahbîl said: {Or the man who says, “I can reveal the like of what God has revealed”} was revealed concerning ‘Abdullâh Ibn Sâd Ibn Abî Sarh who apostatized. When the Prophet entered Mecca he ordered him and ‘Abdullâh Ibn Khatal and Miqyas Ibn Sabaabah to be executed even if they were under the curtains of the Ka’bah. So, ‘Abdullâh Ibn Sâd Ibn Abî Sarh fled to ‘Uthmân, his foster brother – his mother suckled ‘Uthmân. The latter hid him until he brought him to the Prophet after the inhabitants of Mecca became secure and he sought immunity for ‘Abdullâh. The Prophet remained silent for a long time and then said: (Yes). When ‘Uthmân left, the Prophet said (I said nothing so that one of you executed him). A man among the Ansâr said: “Then why didn’t you give me a sign, O Prophet of God?” He answered: (the treachery of the eyes does not befit a Prophet.) Abu Omar said: “And ‘Abdullâh Ibn Sâd Ibn Abî Sarh converted back to Islam during the conquest of Mecca and his Islam was fine, and later, his behavior was beyond reproach. He was among the wise and the noble from Quraysh, and was the knight of Bani ‘Aamir Ibn Lu’ayy and was respected among them. Later, ‘Uthmân named him to govern Egypt in the year 25 H. He conquered Africa in the year 27 H and conquered Nuba in the year 31 H and he was the one who signed with the Nubians the armistice that is still valid today. He defeated the Romans in the battle of as-Sawâry in the year 34 H. When he returned from his advent, he was prevented from entering al-Fustât [the capital of Egypt], so he went to ‘Asqalân where he lived until the murder of ‘Uthmân. It was also said: He lived in Ramlah until he died away from the turmoil. And he prayed Allah saying: “O Allah! make the prayer of Subh the last of my deeds. So he performed Wudu’ and prayed; he read Surat al-Fâtihah and al-‘Aadiyaat in the first rak’ah and read al-Fâtihah and another surah in the second rak’ah and made salâm on his right and died before he made salâm on the left side. All this report was conveyed by Yazîd Ibn Abî Habîb and others. He didn’t pledge allegiance to ‘Alî nor to Mu’âwiyah. His death was before the people agreed on Mu’âwiyah. It was also said that he died in Africa, but the correct is that he died in ‘Asqalân in the year 36 H or 37 H and it was rather said 36 H…

      Another famous Tafsir states:

      “‘To me it has been revealed, when naught has been revealed to him’ refers to ‘Abdallah Ibn Sa’d Ibn Abi Sarh, who used to write for God’s messenger. The verse (23:12) that says, ‘We created man of an extraction of clay’ was revealed, and when Muhammad reached the part that says, ‘… thereafter We produced him as another creature’ (23:14), ‘Abdallah said, ‘So blessed be God the fairest of creators!’ in amazement at the details of man’s creation. The prophet said, ‘Write it down; for thus it has been revealed.’ ‘Abdallah doubted and said, ‘If Muhammad is truthful then I receive the revelation as much as he does, and if he is a liar, what I said is a good as what he said.’” (Anwar al-Tanzil wa Asrar al-Ta‘wil by ‘Abdallah Ibn ‘Umar al-Baidawi; bold emphasis ours)

      Ibn al-Athîr said regarding Ibn Abi Sarh that:

      He converted to Islam before the conquest of Mecca and immigrated to the Prophet [i.e. in Medina]. He used to record the revelation for the Prophet before he apostatized and went back to Mecca. Then he told Quraysh: ‘I used to orient Muhammad wherever I willed, he dictated to me “All-Powerful All-Wise” and I suggest “All Knowing All-Wise” so he would say: “Yes, it is all the same.” (Usûd Ulghâbah fî Ma’rifat Is-Sahâbah, [Dâr al-Fikr, Beirut (Lebanon), 1995], Volume 3, p. 154; bold emphasis ours)

      We read in Alfiyyat us-Sîrat in-Nabawiyyah by al-Hâfidh al-‘Iraqî that:

      The scribes of Muhammad were 42 in number. `Abdallah Ibn Sarh al-`Amiri was one of them, and he was the first Quraishite among those who wrote in Mecca before he turned away from Islam. He started saying, “I used to direct Muhammad wherever I willed. He would dictate to me ‘Most High, All-Wise’, and I would write down ‘All-Wise’ only. Then he would say, ‘Yes it is all the same’. On a certain occasion he said, ‘Write such and such’, but I wrote ‘Write’ only, and he said, ‘Write whatever you like.’” So when this scribe exposed Muhammad, he wrote in the Qur’an, “And who does greater evil than he who forges against God a lie, or says, ‘To me it has been revealed’, when naught has been revealed to him.” So on the day Muhammad conquered Mecca, he commanded his scribe to be killed. But the scribe fled to `Uthman Ibn `Affan, because `Uthman was his foster brother (his mother suckled `Uthman). `Uthman, therefore, kept him away from Muhammad. After the people calmed down, `Uthman brought the scribe to Muhammad and sought protection for him. Muhammad kept silent for a long time, after which he said yes. When `Uthman had left, Muhammad said “I only kept silent so that you (the people) should kill him.”

      The biography of Ibn Abi Sarh, titled Al-Isaabah fi Tamyeez Al-Sahabah (Volume 4, p. 109, kaf = 0, ba’ = 0, ha’ = 4714) states:

      Abdullah bin Sa’d bin Abi Sarh bin Al-Harith Abu Yahya Al-Qurashi Al-Amiri

      4714 —- Abdullah bin Sa’d bin Abi Al-Sarh bin Al-Harith bin Habeeb Bilmuhmlah Musghira bin Huthafah bin Malik bin Hasl bin Amir bin Lu’ai Al-Qurashi Al-Amiri, and some inserted [into his genealogy] Huthafa and Malik Nasra. The first one is more famous and his Kunyah is Aba Yahya. He [Abdullah] was Othman’s [the fourth Caliph] brother by nursing (rida’ah), and his mother was Ash’ariyyah (Al-Zubayr bin Bikar said that). Ibn Sa’d said that her mother is Muhabah bint Jaber. Ibn Habban said that his father was one of Quraysh’s hypocrite infidels – that’s what he said and I haven’t seen any other [view]. Al-Hakim narrated from al-Suday, by Mus’ab bin Sa’d by his father, “When it was the day of the conquering (fath) of Mecca, the Prophet gave safety to all its people except for four men and two women; Ikrimah, Ibn Khatl, Maqees bin Subabah, and Ibn Abi Al-Sarh.” He went on with the Hadeeth and said, “As for Abdullah, he hid with Othman, so he [Othman] came to the Prophet with him, while he [Mohammad] was making vows of allegiance (bay’ah) with the people. So Othman said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, make a vow of allegiance (bay’ah) with Abdullah.’ And so he did after three attempts. Then he [Mohammad] went to his companions and said, ‘Isn’t there any honorable man among you who would stand and kill him [Abdullah] when he saw me refusing to make the vow with him?’” And from Yazeed Al-Nahwi by Ikrimah by Ibn Abbas who said, “Abdullah bin Sa’d used to write for the Prophet, so Satan made him err and he followed the infidels. The Prophet ordered his death (meaning of the day of Conquering Mecca), but Othman intervened and asked for his safety, so the Prophet kept him safe [didn’t kill him].” (Taken from the Encyclopedia of the Prophet’s Hadeeth Mawsoo’at Al-Hadeeth Al-Nabawi – Al-Areesh Company for Computers “Sharikat Al-Areesh lil-computer” – Beirut – 1998; bold and underline emphasis ours)

      One modern Shia commentary admits:

      This verse was revealed to condemn the half brother of Uthman, Abdullah bin abi Sarah (and men like him). He was a Jew but joined the group of pagans after renouncing his faith. After becoming Muslim he was sometimes asked to write down the revealed verses but he used to change the words of the revealed verses while writing them, and then claimed that whatever he had composed should have also been accepted as revelation. (Pooya/Commentary; bold emphasis ours)

      The late Iranian Islamic scholar Ali Dashti, in his masterful examination of Muhammad’s prophetic career, wrote:

      When Mecca was conquered, a general amnesty was proclaimed, but certain exceptions were made. The Prophet gave orders for the killing of six persons wherever they might be found, even in the sanctuary of the Ka‘ba. They were Safwan b. Omayya, ‘Abdollah b. ol-Khatal, Meqyas b. Sobaba, ‘Ekrema b. Abi Jahl, ol-Howayreth b. Noqaydh b. Wahb, and ‘Abdollah b. Sa‘d b. Abi Sarh.

      The last named had for some time been one of the scribes employed at Madina to write down the revelations. On a number of occasions he had, with the Prophet’s consent, changed the closing words of verses. For example, when the Prophet had said “And God is mighty and wise” (‘aziz, hakim), ‘Abdollah b. Abi Sarh suggested writing down “knowing and wise” (‘alim, hakim), and the Prophet answered that there was no objection. Having observed a succession of changes of this type, ‘Abdollah renounced Islam on the ground that the revelations, if from God, could not be changed at the prompting of a scribe such as himself. After his apostasy he went to Mecca and joined the Qorayshites…

      ‘Abdollah b. Abi Sarh was a foster-brother of ‘Othman. He took refuge with ‘Othman, who kept him hidden for several days until the commotion subsided, and then brought him to the Prophet and requested pardon for him. After a long silence, the Prophet said, “Yes”, meaning that he reluctantly accepted ‘Othman’s intercession. Thereupon ‘Abdollah b. Abi Sarh professed Islam again and ‘Othman and he departed. The Prophet, when asked the reason for the long silence, replied, “His Islam was not voluntary but from fear, so I was reluctant to accept it. I was expecting one of you to stand up and behead him.” (This was because it had been proclaimed that his blood might be lawfully shed in any place where he might be found, “even if clinging to the covering of the K‘aba”). One of the Ansar asked the Prophet why he had not winked, and received the answer that “God’s Apostle cannot have false eyes”, meaning that he could not falsely pretend silence while giving a sign with the eyes to kill… (Dashti, 23 Years: A Study of the Prophetic Career of Mohammad, translated from the Persian by F.R.C. Bagley [Mazda Publishers, Costa Mesa, CA 1994], pp. 98-99; bold emphasis ours)

      Finally, the hadith compiler Abi Dawud provides implicit corroboration for this story’s veracity since he narrates the following:

      Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:
      Abdullah ibn AbuSarh used to write (the revelation) for the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him). Satan made him slip, and he joined the infidels. The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) commanded to kill him on the day of Conquest (of Mecca). Uthman ibn Affan sought protection for him. The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) gave him protection. Book 38, Number 4345)

      Ibn Abi Sarh wasn’t the only scribe who defected as a result of influencing Muhammad to change the Quran; a Christian did as well:

      Narrated Anas:
      There was a Christian who embraced Islam and read Surat-al-Baqara and Al-Imran, and he used to write (the revelations) for the Prophet. Later on he returned to Christianity again and he used to say: “Muhammad knows nothing but what I have written for him.” Then Allah caused him to die, and the people buried him, but in the morning they saw that the earth had thrown his body out. They said, “This is the act of Muhammad and his companions. They dug the grave of our companion and took his body out of it because he had run away from them.” They again dug the grave deeply for him, but in the morning they again saw that the earth had thrown his body out. They said, “This is an act of Muhammad and his companions. They dug the grave of our companion and threw his body outside it, for he had run away from them.” They dug the grave for him as deep as they could, but in the morning they again saw that the earth had thrown his body out. So they believed that what had befallen him was not done by human beings and had to leave him thrown (on the ground). (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 814)

      Putting aside the obvious legendary embellishments, it is rather evident from the above narration that there was a growing problem of people claiming to have influenced Muhammad in composing the Quran which the Muslims had to address and explain away. The Quran itself refers to this problem:

      And indeed We know that they (polytheists and pagans) say: “It is only a human being who teaches him (Muhammad SAW).” The tongue of the man they refer to is foreign, while this (the Qur’an) is a clear Arabic tongue. S. 16:103 Hilali-Khan

      Those who disbelieve say: “This (the Qur’an) is nothing but a lie that he (Muhammad SAW) has invented, and others have helped him at it, so that they have produced an unjust wrong (thing) and a lie.” And they say: “Tales of the ancients, which he has written down, and they are dictated to him morning and afternoon.” Say: “It (this Qur’an) has been sent down by Him (Allah) (the Real Lord of the heavens and earth) Who knows the secret of the heavens and the earth. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” S. 25:4-6

      In light of the foregoing, we must ask the following questions: If these were in fact God’s words how could Muhammad even allow an uninspired scribe to change them? How could Muhammad replace divinely revealed statements with the words of a fallible human being?

      At the beginning of this paper we referred to a warning of the Quran against changing any of its contents:

      And when Our clear revelations are recited unto them, they who look not for the meeting with Us say: Bring a Lecture other than this, or change it. Say (O Muhammad): It is not for me to change it of my accord. I only follow that which is inspired in me. Lo! if I disobey my Lord I fear the retribution of an awful Day. S. 10:15 Pickthall

      That it is indeed the speech of an illustrious messenger. It is not poet’s speech – little is it that ye believe! Nor diviner’s speech – little is it that ye remember! It is a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds. And if he had invented false sayings concerning Us, We assuredly had taken him by the right hand And then severed his life-artery, S. 69:40-46 Pickthall

      Then we reviewed the reports about Abdullah ibn Sa’d Abi Sarh suggesting changes to certain formulations in the Quran and Muhammad approving his suggestions.

      The punishment announced in these verses is quite specific. Having seen that Muhammad clearly violated the command against meddling with the alleged divine revelation, it is even more amazing to see the manner in which Muhammad expired. According to Muslim tradition Muhammad died a very painful death due to the effects of poison, effects that he claimed cut at his jugular vein:

      The messenger of God said during the illness from which he died – the mother of Bishr had come in to visit him – “Umm Bishr, at this very moment I feel my aorta being severed because of the food I ate with your son at Khaybar.” (The History of Al-Tabari: The Victory of Islam, translated by Michael Fishbein [State University of New York (SUNY), Albany 1997] Volume VIII, p. 124)

      In a footnote the translator of al-Tabari writes that the expression, “it severed his aorta” need not be taken literally since it can be an expression denoting extreme pain. Other sources corroborate that Muhammad ‘s painful death was due to the poison he had ingested years before his demise:

      Anas reported that a Jewess came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) with poisoned mutton and he took of that what had been brought to him (Allah’s Messenger). (When the effect of this poison were felt by him) he called for her and asked her about that, whereupon she said: I had determined to kill you. Thereupon he said: Allah will never give you the power to do it. He (the narrator) said that they (the Companion’s of the Holy Prophet) said: Should we not kill her? Thereupon he said: No. He (Anas) said: I felt (the affects of this poison) on the uvula of Allah’s Messenger. (Sahih Muslim, Book 026, Number 5430)

      … The apostle of Allah lived after this three years till in consequence of his pain he passed away. During his illness he used to say, “I did not cease to find the effect of the (poisoned) morsel, I took at Khaibar and I suffered several times (from its effect) but now I feel the hour has come of the cutting of my jugular vein.” (Ibn Sa’d, Kitab Al-Tabaqat al-Kabir, Volume II, pp. 251-252)

      Narrated Ibn Abbas:

      ‘Umar bin Al-Khattab used to let Ibn Abbas sit beside him, so ‘AbdurRahman bin ‘Auf said to ‘Umar, “We have sons similar to him.” ‘Umar replied, “(I respect him) because of his status that you know.” ‘Umar then asked Ibn ‘Abbas about the meaning of this Holy Verse:– “When comes the help of Allah and the conquest of Mecca…” (110.1)

      Ibn ‘Abbas replied, “That indicated the death of Allah’s Apostle which Allah informed him of.” ‘Umar said, “I do not understand of it except what you understand.” Narrated ‘Aisha: The Prophet in his ailment in which he died, used to say, “O ‘Aisha! I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta is being cut from that poison.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 713)

      Compare the foregoing statements with the following Quranic citation:

      We indeed created man; and We know what his soul whispers within him, and We are nearer to him than the jugular vein. When the two angels meet together, sitting one on the right, and one on the left, not a word he utters, but by him is an observer ready. And death’s agony comes in truth; that is what thou wast shunning! S. 50:16-19 Arberry

      Allah warns those who disbelieve that he is nearer to them than their jugular vein, an obvious threat that he has the power to kill them, and further threatens that they would experience an agonizing death.

      The fact that Islamic narrations state that Muhammad died a severe death, describing his death in language that is reminiscent of Q. 69:45-46 and 50:16-19, supports the position that he was being punished for some heinous sin.

      Moreover, when we tie this in with the story of Ibn Abi Sarh it makes it difficult not to conclude that Allah was punishing his prophet for changing the Quran at the suggestions of an uninspired scribe.

      Is This Story Based on Fact?

      Some Muslims have taken to deny the veracity of this story (obviously due to its rather embarrassing nature and the damage it does to Muhammad’s credibility) on the grounds that it is based on questionable chains of transmission and/or sources.

      This oft-repeated Muslim rebuttal fails to explain why Muslim historians, scholars, expositors etc., would include this report when it does great damage to Muhammad’s credibility. In fact, the most unpleasant events in early Islam have the strongest probability of really having occurred because it is inconceivable that Muslims would make them up on their own or adapt them from non-Muslims. After all, if the enemies of Islam created these reports to discredit Muhammad why would respectable Muslims such as al-Tabari and al-Qurtubi include them? Why didn’t they simply omit such details especially when they make Muhammad look so bad?

      Moreover, one argument that Muslims often use to demonstrate the veracity of the Quran is to single out passages rebuking Muhammad for some mistakes or sins he committed (cf. Q. 9:43; 40:55; 47:19; 8:1-2; 80:1-10). Muslims see in these texts evidence that Muhammad couldn’t have authored the Quran since he wouldn’t rebuke himself if he did.

      Yet this same logic would equally apply to the story of Ibn Abi Sarh changing the revelations with Muhammad’s approval, since it is highly unlikely that god-fearing Muslims would concoct such a story. Thus, the embarrassing nature of this narration provides strong corroboration for its historical veracity, especially when we recall that Muslim historians and scholars had the tendency to omit such negative portrayals of their prophet.

      Another Islamic site offers an answer as to why Muslims would circulate and retain such a story, even if it were deemed fraudulent:

      Many of the early writers were concerned by the compilation only. Fearing that the material available could be lost, they collected whatever reports they could find without authenticating them. They left the authentication process to the following generations… (Source)

      This response fails to take into consideration that the Muslim expositors and exegetes didn’t merely narrate the story of Ibn Abi Sarh as part of a body of material which needed to be carefully examined for authenticity; rather some of them expressly stated that the report of Ibn Abi Sarh changing the texts of the Quran is actually a sound report, and believed that Q. 6:93 does in fact refer to this specific event. For instance, here is what the renowned Sunni exegete and historian al-Tabari said was the position of the scholars regarding Ibn Abi Sarh tampering with the Quran:

      The One whose name is Exalted (Allah) means in his saying “Who doth more wrong than such as invent a falsehood against Allah” and “Who doth more wrong and who is more ignorant than such as invent a falsehood against Allah” referring to those who invent falsehood against Allah and claim to be a Prophet and a Warner, and he [the person who claims] is false in his claims, and lying in his sayings. In this, God is ridiculing the Pagan Arabs, and (ridiculing) the opposing of Abdullah bin Sa’d bin Abi Al-Sarh and the Hanafite Musaylamah to the Prophet of Allah. For one of them claimed prophethood and the other claimed that he came up with something similar to what the Messenger of Allah (SAW) came with [the Quran], and at the same time denying the lying and false claims against his Prophet Mohammad.

      The people of the interpretations (scholars) had different opinions about that; some of them said what we said [agreed with us]. Among those are:

      Al-Qasim told us: Al-Hussein narrated: Al-Hajjaj narrated: by Ibn Jurayh, by Ikrimah:

      His saying [Allah’s saying in the Quran], “Who doth more wrong than such as invent a falsehood against Allah, or said: ‘I have received inspiration,’ when he hath received none”. He [Ikrimah] said: This verse was revealed about Musaylamah the brother of Bani (children of) Uday bin Haneefah, for he [Musaylamah] was reciting poetry and prophesying. And “I can reveal like what Allah hath revealed” was revealed about Abdullah bin Sa’d bin Abi Al-Sarh, the brother of Bani (children of) Amir bin Lu’ai. He [Abdullah] used to write for the Prophet (SAW), and while he [Mohammad] was dictating “Exalted in power, full of Wisdom”, he [Abdullah] would write it “Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful”, thus changing it. Then he [Abdullah] would read the changed verses to him [Mohammad], and he [Mohammad] would say, “Yes [in approval], it’s the same [meaning].” So he [Abdullah] reverted from Islam and followed Quraysh telling them, “He [Mohammad] used to recite to me ‘Exalted in power, full of Wisdom’, and I would change it when I write it down, and he would tell me, ‘Yes [in approval], it’s the same [meaning].” But then he [Abdullah] came back to Islam before the conquering (fath) of Mecca, while the Prophet was at Mur [a place in Arabia – on his way to Mecca].

      And some said: This verse was indeed revealed about Abdullah bin Sa’d in particular. Among those are:

      Mohammad bin Al-Hussein spoke to me, he said: Ahmad bin Al-Mufdil narrated: Asbat narrated from Al-Sudy: “Who doth more wrong than such as invent a falsehood against Allah, or said: “I have received inspiration,’ when he hath received none…” until his [Allah] saying, “ye receive your reward, a penalty of shame”. He [Al-Sudy] said: This verse was revealed about Abdullah bin Sa’d bin Abi Al-Sarh, he embraced Islam, and used to write [Quran revelations] for the Prophet (SAW). So when the Prophet dictated him: “Who heareth and knoweth all things”, he’d write it: “All-Knowing, All-Wise”. So he doubted and reverted. Then he said, “If Mohammad gets inspiration, then I get inspiration too, and if Allah sent him his revelation then I was sent the same thing. For when Mohammad said, ‘Who heareth and knoweth all things,’ I’d say, ‘All-Knowing, All-Wise.’” So he followed the Pagans, and he blew the cover of Ammar and Jubar [secret Muslims] to Ibn Al-Hudrumi or to Bani Abd Al-Dar, so they took them and tortured them until they reverted. Ammar’s ear was cut off that day, so he [Ammar] went to the Prophet (SAW) and told him what had happened to him, but the Prophet (SAW) refused to handle his issue. So Allah revealed about [Abdullah] Ibn Abi Al-Sarh and his companions, “Anyone who, after accepting Faith in Allah, utters Unbelief, – except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith – but such as open their breast to Unbelief, on them is Wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful Penalty.” Who was “under compulsion” is Ammar and his companions, and who “open their breast to Unbelief” is [Abdullah] Ibn Abi Al-Sarh… The opinion I believe which has more credibility than the others is to say: Allah said, “Who can be more wicked than one who inventeth a lie against Allah, or said: ‘I have received inspiration,’ when he hath received none.” THERE IS NO DISAGREEMENT BETWEEN THE SCHOLARS OF THE UMMAH (nation) THAT IBN ABI SARH WAS ONE OF THOSE WHO SAID, “I had said like [what] Mohammad [said]”, and that he reverted from Islam and followed the Pagans. There is no doubt that what he said was lies. And there is also no disagreement between all [the Scholars] that Musaylamah and Al-Ansi the Liars claimed falsehood against Allah by saying that he sent them as Prophets; for each of them had said that Allah inspired them, and they are lying in their claims. (Bold and capital emphasis ours)

      Al-Tabari emphatically claims that all the scholars of Islam concurred that Q. 6:93 refers to Ibn Abi Sarh’s assertion that he changed the words of the Quran with Muhammad’s approval. What al-Tabari’s statements presuppose is that Muslim scholars had already carefully examined the story of Ibn Abi Sarh and concluded that it was sound. Thus, Muslims themselves, not Orientalists or Christians, have affirmed the historical veracity of this event.

      The same authors propose another argument which, on the surface of it, seems to carry weight:

      According to the critic, the revelation of verse 23:12 and the amazed anticipation of cAbdullâh Ibn Sâd Ibn Abî Sarh on the end of verse 23:14 triggered his apostasy. Many books about the cUlûm al-Qur’ân have made an accurate classification of the Chapters and verses that were revealed in Mecca (those are called Meccan verses or Chapters), and the ones revealed in Medina (those are called Medinite). According to Al-Itqân, we learn that the full Chapter 23 (i.e., Sûrat al-Mu’minûn) is Meccan. Refer to pages 17-21 where many reports confirm the revelation of Chapter 23 in Mecca with no exception of any single verse.[5] Obviously, this report quoted from al-Baidawi is a gross fabrication since cAbdullâh Ibn Sâd Ibn Abî Sarh embraced Islam after the revelation of Chapter 23. When we add to the above the fact that the full quotation from al-Baidawî was not put forward by the critic even when we asked for it, and given the fact that the reports are stated without the chains of transmission, the authentication of such a report is impossible. Moreover, a comparison to other commentaries of the Qur’ân (such as the commentaries of al-Qurtubî[6] and at-Tabarî[7]) mentioning the same report provide disrupted chains of transmission. That is why the claim of the critic based on the report of al-Baidawî looses conclusively all its value.

      The authors are basically insinuating that the story of Ibn Abi Sarh cannot be true on the grounds that he became a Muslim during the time Muhammad was at Medina, whereas the text that Ibn Abi Sarh changed, i.e. Q. 23:12-14, was composed in Mecca, long before his conversion.

      There are two fundamental problems with the above reasoning. First, citing sources which place the date of Q. 23 at a time before Ibn Abi Sarh’s conversion doesn’t resolve the issue, but merely proves that the primary source materials of Islam cannot be trusted since they are full of contradictions and mistakes.

      Secondly, and more importantly, the narrators do not say that Abdullah made changes to Q. 23:12-14 when they were first “revealed” to Muhammad. Rather, a careful reading of the sources suggests that these changes were made during the time that Ibn Abi Sarh had first heard them for himself, long after they were composed, an even more damaging position to Muhammad’s prophethood! To put it rather simply, the narratives may actually be implying that Muhammad allowed changes to be made to a text that had been recited and composed many years prior to Ibn Abi Sarh’s conversion!

      Thus, the preceding factors give us good grounds for assuming that this story of Muhammad permitting Ibn Abi Sarh to change the so-called revelations is based on actual history. The report cannot simply be explained away in terms of the (alleged) unreliability of the source documents.

      Yet if it is a genuine historical event then Muhammad turns out to be a false prophet who was punished for inventing revelations and changing the Quran. No wonder Muslims try to find any excuse to dismiss this story!

      Note: Apart from the quotes from Sunan Abu Dawud, Ali Dashti, Pooya-Ali, and the commentaries from http://www.altafsir.com, the preceding Islamic references regarding Abdullah ibn Sa’d Abi Sarh were adapted from the following articles: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

      With the exception of the last two, the above links provide more details regarding this subject and address the Muslim responses which call into question the veracity of this story.

      So was he a Prophet or Not?

      We have shown that the manner in which Muhammad died is a rather strong indication that he had come under the wrath and judgment of his own god. As we examined the Muslim sources we discovered that Muhammad permitted changes to be made to the Quran at the suggestion of his scribe, and how such changes violated the Quran’s express warning to Muhammad that if he tampered with the “revelations” he would be severely punished.

      When all of these factors are kept in mind it seems hard to escape the conclusion that Muhammad’s extremely painful death was a sign that he was being punished for making changes to the Quran.

      The reader at this point may be wondering whether the foregoing implies that Muhammad was indeed a true prophet of God, or at least started out as one, due to the fact that his punishment was in direct fulfillment of the Quran’s warnings to him. In other words, wouldn’t the fulfillment of these warnings provide attestation that the Quran is indeed God’s Word, or at least parts of it are, since they came to pass as announced?

      There are several reasons why this doesn’t follow. In the first place, as we have already mentioned Muhammad fails the biblical criteria of being God’s true prophet, criteria presupposed and accepted by the Quran itself. See above for the links.

      This by itself is sufficient to show that Muhammad wasn’t God’s prophet and that the Quran is not his word.

      Secondly, the Bible itself speaks of false prophets and messengers making accurate predictions as a means of testing God’s elect:

      “If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a miraculous sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder of which he has spoken takes place, and he says, ‘Let us follow other gods’ (gods you have not known) “and let us worship them,’ you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The LORD your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul. It is the LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. That prophet or dreamer must be put to death, because he preached rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery; he has tried to turn you from the way the LORD your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you.” Deuteronomy 13:1-5

      “At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.” Matthew 24:23-24

      Hence, just because what Muhammad may have said about the consequences of tampering with the Quran came to pass this doesn’t mean that the true God inspired him. It merely shows that God was testing true believers to see whether they would be misled by the teachings of the Quran.

      The above demonstrates that according to the Biblical standard, he is a false prophet because his message contradicts the established Word of God, and even one or two accurate predictions do not change that verdict.

      However, Muhammad is not only exposed based on the Bible, but he is judged also based on the Quran. According to Quranic criteria, the manner of Muhammad’s death is a clear sign of his deity punishing him for tampering with the Quran. This implies that, at the very least, Allah later rejected him from being his spokesperson. After all, note once again what the passages say:

      But when Our Clear Signs are rehearsed unto them, those who rest not their hope on their meeting with Us, Say: “Bring us a reading other than this, or change this,” Say: “It is not for me, of my own accord, to change it: I follow naught but what is revealed unto me: if I were to disobey my Lord, I should myself fear the penalty of a Great Day (to come).” S. 10:15 Y. Ali

      That this is verily the word of an honoured apostle; It is not the word of a poet: little it is ye believe! Nor is it the word of a soothsayer: little admonition it is ye receive. (This is) a Message sent down from the Lord of the Worlds. And if the apostle were to invent any sayings in Our name, We should certainly seize him by his right hand, And We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart: S. 69:40-46 Y. Ali

      The first text warns Muhammad to fear the penalty of that great day, an obvious reference to the Day of Judgment, showing that he would be condemned not just in this life but for all eternity as well. Thus, even if a Muslim wants to use these verses as proof of the Quran’s inspiration s/he must contend with the fact that their fulfillment means that Muhammad’s death was a sign that Allah was displeased and abandoned him, and that Muhammad was no longer functioning as Allah’s messenger. It further shows that Muhammad actually ended up in hell for changing the Quran!

      This leads us to our final point. The fulfillment of the Quran’s warnings may have been God’s way of showing even to Muslims that Muhammad wasn’t his prophet. The true God may have punished Muhammad in a manner prescribed by the Quran in order to get the people’s attention that Muhammad wasn’t being punished merely for tampering with the Quran, but for claiming that the Quran itself is revelation from the God of Abraham. God’s true Word, the Holy Bible, does warn those who would dare attribute to God words not uttered by him and/or tamper with those words which were inspired by him:

      “Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you.” Deuteronomy 4:2

      “See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it.” Deuteronomy 12:32

      “Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.” Proverbs 30:5-6

      “I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.” Revelation 22:18-19

      Hence, God causing Muhammad to die in the manner prescribed by the Quran wouldn’t imply the Quran’s divine origin and veracity, but would be a supernatural sign that even by the Quranic standard Muhammad died the death of one accursed and condemned by God; yet not for changing the Quran but for perverting the teachings of the true prophets and messengers as recorded in God’s true Word, the Holy Bible.

      Lest the reader think that we are stretching things a bit, note that God even caused a false prophet named Balaam to utter true oracles and prophecies (cf. Numbers 22-24). Now this doesn’t mean that God inspired these particular Suras but that God could have permitted an evil spirit to utter these warnings which God caused to be fulfilled in order to expose Muhammad. After all, even evil spirits are used by God to accomplish his purposes! (Cf. Job 1:6-12, 2:1-6; 1 Kings 22:19-24; 1 Chronicles 21:1- cf. 2 Samuel 24:1)

      The foregoing shows that, no matter from what angle one looks at this, the conclusion comes out to be the same: Muhammad died the death of one who was displeasing to God and condemned by him.

      • Lucky bin SATAN, You uttered : HOLY BIBLE!

        Which part of the Bible is HOLY??

        Is it the personal letters of PAUL that YOU call HOLY?

        Or verses like Psalms 137:9, The Babylonians contributed a LOT to this world. Babes civilisation gave us CODE of Hammurabi…that had all Laws known today like marriage, agriculture, governance, industry, properties, and others.

        The CODE of hammurabi gave the BIBLE : “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”.
        It gave us the SALE contract and the SEAL, Jewellery and Gems making. They gave us Literary pieces like Gilgamesh and Anuna Elish…and their contributions range in astronomy and maths. Then why would the Jews and Christians be ordered to smash THEIR children against the ROCKS??
        Psalms 137:9 (KJV) :
        9 HAPPY shall he be, that TAKES and DASHES thy LITTLE ONES against the STONES.

        Why is there such an outreached hatred toward the Babylonians and Sumerians in the BIBLE??

        How does the Bible become HOLY with verses like Deut 28:53, Jeremiah 19:9..where the flesh of the sons will be EATEN?

        Let us refer to Deuteronomy 28:53 (KJV) :
        53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the FLESH of thy SONS and of thy DAUGHTERS, which the Lord thy God hath GIVEN thee, in the siege.

        Is that the WORD OF GOD?? Which PART of the Bible is HOLY??

        • MUHAMMAD & THE SEAL OF PROPHETHOOD

          A Sign or A Physical Deformity?

          A HAIRY MOLE WITH SPOTS

          The Quran says that Muhammad is the seal of the prophets:
          Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Apostle of God, and the Seal of the Prophets: and God has full knowledge of all things. S. 33:40 Y. Ali

          Now at first glance this text seems to imply nothing more than that Muhammad was the culmination of prophethood, that he was the last in a series of spokespersons that Allah had sent. Reading the hadith literature, however, it is obvious that according to Muslim sources this seal was more than a statement regarding Muhammad’s status in relation to the previous prophets. All bold and underline emphasis will be ours.

          Sahih al-Bukhari
          Narrated As Saib bin Yazid
          My aunt took me to the Prophet and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! This son of my sister has got a disease in his legs.” So he passed his hands on my head and prayed for Allah’s blessings for me; then he performed ablution and I drank from the remaining water. I stood behind him and saw the seal of Prophethood between his shoulders, and it was like the “Zir-al-Hijla” (means the button of a small tent, but some said ‘egg of a partridge.’ etc.) (Volume 1, Book 4, Number 189)

          Narrated As Saib
          My aunt took me to Allah’s Apostle and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! My nephew is ill.” The Prophet touched my head with his hand and invoked Allah to bless me. He then performed ablution and I drank of the remaining water of his ablution and then stood behind his back and saw “Khatam An-Nubuwwa” (The Seal of Prophethood) between his shoulders like a button of a tent. (Volume 7, Book 70, Number 574)

          Sahih Muslim
          Chapter 28: THE FACT PERTAINING TO THE SEAL OF HIS PROPHETHOOD, ITS CHARACTERISTIC FEATURE AND ITS LOCATION ON HIS BODY

          Jabir b. Samura reported: I saw the seal on his back as if it were a pigeon’s egg. (Book 030, Number 5790)
          Abdullah b. Sarjis reported: I saw Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) and ate with him bread and meat, or he said Tharid (bread soaked in soup). I said to him: Did Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) seek forgiveness for you? He said: Yes, and for you, and he then recited this verse: “Ask forgiveness for thy sin and for the believing men and believing women” (xlvii. 19). I then went after him and saw the Seal of Prophethood between his shoulders on the left side of his shoulder having spots on it like moles. (Book 030, Number 5793)
          Sunan of Abu Dawud
          Narrated Qurrah ibn Iyas al-Muzani:
          I came to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) with a company of Muzaynah and we swore allegiance to him. The buttons of his shirt were open. I swore allegiance to him and I put my hand inside the collar of his shirt and felt the seal… (Book 32, Number 4071)

          Jami (Sunan) of at-Tirmidhi
          Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib
          When Ali described the Prophet (peace be upon him) he said: He was neither very tall nor excessively short, but was a man of medium size. He had neither very curly nor flowing hair but a mixture of both. He was not obese, he did not have a very round face, but it was so to some extent. He was reddish-white, he had wide black eyes and long eyelashes. He had protruding joints and shoulder-blades, he was not hairy but had some hair on his chest, and the palms of his hands and his feet were calloused. When he walked he raised his feet as though he were walking on a slope; when he turned round he turned completely. Between his shoulders was the seal of prophecy and he was the seal of the prophets. He had a finer chest than anyone else, was truer in utterance than anyone else, had the gentlest nature and the noblest tribe. Those who saw him suddenly stood in awe of him and those who shared his acquaintanceship loved him. Those who described him said they had never seen anyone like him before or since.
          Tirmidhi transmitted it. (Hadith 1524; ALIM CD-Rom Version)

          Narrated AbuMusa
          AbuTalib went to ash-Sham (Syria) accompanied by the Prophet (may Allah bless him) along with some shaykhs of Quraysh. When they came near where the monk was they alighted and loosened their baggage, and the monk came out to them although when they had passed that way previously he had not done so. While they were loosening their baggage the monk began to go about among them till he came and, taking Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) by the hand, said, “This is the chief of the universe; this is the messenger of the Lord of the universe whom Allah is commissioning as a mercy to the universe.” Some shaykhs of Quraysh asked him how he knew, and he replied, “When you came over the hill not a tree or a stone failed to bow in prostration, and they prostrate themselves only before a prophet. I recognize him by the seal of prophecy, like an apple, below the end of his shoulder-blade.” He then went and prepared food for them, and when he brought it to them the Prophet (peace be upon him) was looking after the camels, so he told them to send for him. He came with a cloud above him shading him and when he approached the people he found they had gone before him into the shade of a tree. Then when he sat down the shade of the tree inclined over him, and the monk said, “Look how the shade of the tree has inclined over him. I adjure you by Allah to tell me which of you is his guardian.” On being told that it was AbuTalib he kept adjuring him to send him back until he did so. AbuBakr sent Bilal along with him and the monk gave him provisions of a bread and olive-oil. (Hadith 1534; ALIM CD-Rom Version)
          Tarikh (History of) al-Tabari

          … When Bahira saw this, he descended from his cell and sent the caravan a message inviting them all… Finally he looked at Muhammad’s back, and saw the seal of prophethood between his shoulders… He replied, … “I also recognize him by the seal of prophethood which is below the cartilage of his shoulders and which is like an apple.” … (The History of al-Tabari: Muhammad at Mecca, translated and annotated by W. Montgomery Watt and M. V. McDonald [State University of New York Press (SUNY), Albany 1988], Volume VI, pp. 45, 46)

          Al-Harith – Muhammad b. Sa‘d – Muhammad b. ‘Umar – ‘Ali b. ‘Isa al-Hakami – his father – ‘Amir b. Rabi‘ah: I heard Zayd b. ‘Amr b. Nufayl saying … “He is a man who is neither short nor tall, whose hair is neither abundant nor sparse, whose eyes are always red, and who has the seal of prophethood between his shoulders. His name is Ahmad…” (p. 64)

          Ahmad b. Sinan al-Qattan al-Wasiti – Abu Mu‘awiyah – A‘mash – Abu Zibyan – Ibn ‘Abbas: A man of the Banu ‘Amir came to the Prophet and said, “Show me the seal which is between your shoulders, and if you lie under any enchantment I will cure you, for I am the best enchanter of the Arabs.” “Do you wish me to show you a sign?” asked the Prophet. “Yes,” said the man, “summon that cluster of dates.” So the Prophet looked at a cluster of dates hanging from a date palm and summoned it, and began to snap his finger until it stood before him. Then the man said, “Tell it to go back,” and it went back. The Amiri said, “O Banu Amir, I have never seen a greater magician than I have seen today.” (Pp. 66-67)

          “Then one said to the other, ‘Open his breast.’ He opened my heart, and took out from it the pollution of Satan and the clot of blood, and threw them away. Then one said to the other, ‘Wash his breast as you would a receptacle– or, wash his heart as you would a covering.’ Then he summoned the sakinah, which looked like the face of a white cat, and it was placed in my heart. Then one of them said to the other, ‘Sew up his breast.’ So they sewed up my breast and placed the seal between my shoulders…” (p. 75)

          It turns out that Muhammad’s seal of prophethood was a physical deformity, a mole with spots, which conflicting reports say was shaped either like an apple, the button of a small tent or like the egg of a partridge! It is simply beyond us how this is supposed to be one of the proofs that convince people of Muhammad’s prophethood!

          EPILEPSY, THE ALLAH MODULE & MUHAMMAD

          Has a major branch of history been determined by one man’s bout with epilepsy? I think it might have!

          Epilepsy Toronto has, on its web page, a list of famous people who have had epilepsy. The idea of the list is that epilepsy doesn’t need to stand in the way of achievement. On that list – along with such luminaries as Fyodor Dostoevsky, Joan of Arc, Napoleon and Newton – was Muhammad. Well, you guessed it . . . the incendiary email this organization received from indignant Muslims, prompted them to quickly remove Muhammad from its on-line list. By now, we all know that nothing gets results like Muslim threats.

          This incident reminded me of the connection between epilepsy and the ”God Module”. If you’re not familiar with the God Module or ”God Spot”, here’s a quick summary . . . It was discovered when scientists explored the association between epilepsy and intense spiritual experiences. It seems that temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) creates electrical storms in the brain that stimulates an adjacent area (now identified as the God Module). Many of these epileptics are hyper-religious.

          Anyway, I did a Google search for ”Muhammad and epilepsy” and hit pay-dirt. There appears to be a strong correlation between the symptoms of epilepsy and the witness descriptions of Muhammad’s condition while in his ”trances”. Epilepsy (the ”sacred disease”, also known as the ”falling sickness”) is what the ancients thought were demon possessions. Muhammad was known to have had epileptic symptoms from at least the age of 5. His guardians were afraid he was demon possessed and pawned him off on other relatives.

          Epilepsy would explain Muhammad’s visions and preoccupation with spirituality and his solitary retreats to the mountains for contemplative meditation. Many epileptics describe the spiritual sensations surrounding seizures as so exquisite that they actually look forward to these fits. Fyodor Dostoevsky claimed that he would not trade 10 years of life for a single epilepsy-induced spiritual experience.

          Ancient, superstitious people, especially in Muhammad’s day, were easily impressed by these seizures. They seemed real, because they were. However, they weren’t demon possessions or contact with God; they were epileptic seizures. These seizures are reported to have frightened Muhammad until his wife (the first, ever, Muslim) convinced him that they were divine communiqués. That’s right . . . Muhammad’s wife was the first Muslim – Muhammad was the second.

          There is only anecdotal evidence that Muhammad was an epileptic. It’s just a theory but is a convincing one: many historians and researchers believe it. The first to suggest it was the Greek monk, Theophanes. Theophanes (752-817) wrote, in his ”Chronography”, that Muhammad suffered from epilepsy. In 1869, Sir William Muir, made the same connection in his book, ”The Life of Mahomet”. More recently, Clifford Pickover writes:

          Dostoevsky, another famous epileptic whose works are filled with ecstatic visions of universal love (and terrible nightmares of uncanny fear and radical evil), thought it was obvious that Mohammad’s visions of God were triggered by epilepsy. ”Mohammad assures us in this Koran that he had seen Paradise,” Dostoevsky notes. ”He did not lie. He had indeed been in Paradise – during an attack of epilepsy, from which he suffered, as I do.”

          I guess it takes one to know one.

          • Bin SATAN, we have many epileptics in the world and during the Epilepsy Fit a person suffers from the lack of oxygen. Just AFTER the Fit, the patient DOES NOT remember ANYTHING about what was happening to him~during the Fit.

            So, STOP throwing your Bin SATANIC bulls over here!

  1. Qur’an says that sun sets in a murky water? Hah! It is the lamest thing I’ve ever heard. Raj, dude, you’re no different than those f***ing terrorists. Both of you are super-idiots. Pal, there’s no mentioning of anything like that in Qur’an. There’s no verse like, ‘Sun sets in a murky water’. Read that verse again. That’s the dumbest joke ever. What else can we expect from Ali Sina, a Shia Muslim who denounced the whole Islam after studying Sunni Islam?

    • YO HO HO MO,

      DID YOU HEAR THIS ONE?

      REAL-LIFE QUASIMODO UNCOVERED IN MECCA

      Muhammad “Quasimodo” the “Lumpback of Mecca” had a big lump on his back, between his shoulder-blades and this was the sigh that he was the Seal of the Arab Prophets!

      THE QURAN SAYS MUHAMMAD IS THE SEAL OF THE PROPHETS

      Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Apostle of God, and the Seal of the Prophets: and God has full knowledge of all things. S. 33:40 Y. Ali
      Now at first glance this text seems to imply nothing more than that Muhammad was the culmination of prophethood, that he was the last in a series of spokespersons that Allah had sent. Reading the hadith literature, however, it is obvious that according to Muslim sources this seal was more than a statement regarding Muhammad’s status in relation to the previous prophets. All bold and underline emphasis will be ours.

      Sahih al-Bukhari
      Narrated As Saib bin Yazid
      My aunt took me to the Prophet and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! This son of my sister has got a disease in his legs.” So he passed his hands on my head and prayed for Allah’s blessings for me; then he performed ablution and I drank from the remaining water. I stood behind him and saw the seal of Prophethood between his shoulders, and it was like the “Zir-al-Hijla” (means the button of a small tent, but some said ‘egg of a partridge.’ etc.) (Volume 1, Book 4, Number 189)

      Narrated As Saib
      My aunt took me to Allah’s Apostle and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! My nephew is ill.” The Prophet touched my head with his hand and invoked Allah to bless me. He then performed ablution and I drank of the remaining water of his ablution and then stood behind his back and saw “Khatam An-Nubuwwa” (The Seal of Prophethood) between his shoulders like a button of a tent. (Volume 7, Book 70, Number 574)
      Sahih Muslim
      Chapter 28: THE FACT PERTAINING TO THE SEAL OF HIS PROPHETHOOD, ITS CHARACTERISTIC FEATURE AND ITS LOCATION ON HIS BODY
      Jabir b. Samura reported: I saw the seal on his back as if it were a pigeon’s egg. (Book 030, Number 5790)
      Abdullah b. Sarjis reported: I saw Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) and ate with him bread and meat, or he said Tharid (bread soaked in soup). I said to him: Did Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) seek forgiveness for you? He said: Yes, and for you, and he then recited this verse: “Ask forgiveness for thy sin and for the believing men and believing women” (xlvii. 19). I then went after him and saw the Seal of Prophethood between his shoulders on the left side of his shoulder having spots on it like moles. (Book 030, Number 5793)

      Sunan of Abu Dawud
      Narrated Qurrah ibn Iyas al-Muzani:
      I came to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) with a company of Muzaynah and we swore allegiance to him. The buttons of his shirt were open. I swore allegiance to him and I put my hand inside the collar of his shirt and felt the seal… (Book 32, Number 4071)

      Jami (Sunan) of at-Tirmidhi
      Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib
      When Ali described the Prophet (peace be upon him) he said: He was neither very tall nor excessively short, but was a man of medium size. He had neither very curly nor flowing hair but a mixture of both. He was not obese, he did not have a very round face, but it was so to some extent. He was reddish-white, he had wide black eyes and long eyelashes. He had protruding joints and shoulder-blades, he was not hairy but had some hair on his chest, and the palms of his hands and his feet were calloused. When he walked he raised his feet as though he were walking on a slope; when he turned round he turned completely. Between his shoulders was the seal of prophecy and he was the seal of the prophets. He had a finer chest than anyone else, was truer in utterance than anyone else, had the gentlest nature and the noblest tribe. Those who saw him suddenly stood in awe of him and those who shared his acquaintanceship loved him. Those who described him said they had never seen anyone like him before or since.
      Tirmidhi transmitted it. (Hadith 1524; ALIM CD-Rom Version)
      Narrated AbuMusa
      AbuTalib went to ash-Sham (Syria) accompanied by the Prophet (may Allah bless him) along with some shaykhs of Quraysh. When they came near where the monk was they alighted and loosened their baggage, and the monk came out to them although when they had passed that way previously he had not done so. While they were loosening their baggage the monk began to go about among them till he came and, taking Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) by the hand, said, “This is the chief of the universe; this is the messenger of the Lord of the universe whom Allah is commissioning as a mercy to the universe.” Some shaykhs of Quraysh asked him how he knew, and he replied, “When you came over the hill not a tree or a stone failed to bow in prostration, and they prostrate themselves only before a prophet. I recognize him by the seal of prophecy, like an apple, below the end of his shoulder-blade.” He then went and prepared food for them, and when he brought it to them the Prophet (peace be upon him) was looking after the camels, so he told them to send for him. He came with a cloud above him shading him and when he approached the people he found they had gone before him into the shade of a tree. Then when he sat down the shade of the tree inclined over him, and the monk said, “Look how the shade of the tree has inclined over him. I adjure you by Allah to tell me which of you is his guardian.” On being told that it was AbuTalib he kept adjuring him to send him back until he did so. AbuBakr sent Bilal along with him and the monk gave him provisions of a bread and olive-oil. (Hadith 1534; ALIM CD-Rom Version)

      Tarikh (History of) al-Tabari
      … When Bahira saw this, he descended from his cell and sent the caravan a message inviting them all… Finally he looked at Muhammad’s back, and saw the seal of prophethood between his shoulders… He replied, … “I also recognize him by the seal of prophethood which is below the cartilage of his shoulders and which is like an apple.” … (The History of al-Tabari: Muhammad at Mecca, translated and annotated by W. Montgomery Watt and M. V. McDonald [State University of New York Press (SUNY), Albany 1988], Volume VI, pp. 45, 46)
      Al-Harith – Muhammad b. Sa‘d – Muhammad b. ‘Umar – ‘Ali b. ‘Isa al-Hakami – his father – ‘Amir b. Rabi‘ah: I heard Zayd b. ‘Amr b. Nufayl saying … “He is a man who is neither short nor tall, whose hair is neither abundant nor sparse, whose eyes are always red, and who has the seal of prophethood between his shoulders. His name is Ahmad…” (p. 64)
      Ahmad b. Sinan al-Qattan al-Wasiti – Abu Mu‘awiyah – A‘mash – Abu Zibyan – Ibn ‘Abbas: A man of the Banu ‘Amir came to the Prophet and said, “Show me the seal which is between your shoulders, and if you lie under any enchantment I will cure you, for I am the best enchanter of the Arabs.” “Do you wish me to show you a sign?” asked the Prophet. “Yes,” said the man, “summon that cluster of dates.” So the Prophet looked at a cluster of dates hanging from a date palm and summoned it, and began to snap his finger until it stood before him. Then the man said, “Tell it to go back,” and it went back. The Amiri said, “O Banu Amir, I have never seen a greater magician than I have seen today.” (Pp. 66-67)
      “Then one said to the other, ‘Open his breast.’ He opened my heart, and took out from it the pollution of Satan and the clot of blood, and threw them away. Then one said to the other, ‘Wash his breast as you would a receptacle– or, wash his heart as you would a covering.’ Then he summoned the sakinah, which looked like the face of a white cat, and it was placed in my heart.

        • YO HO HO MO,

          ISLAM:

          THE CULT OF THE ABSURD

          Imagine that you have believed in something for thirty or forty years. Everyone in your community believes exactly the same thing. This thing in which you all believe shapes your personal identity and that of your entire community. Your understanding of existence, of morality and the meaning of life, are inextricably bound up with it. You have passed on your beliefs to your own children. You are aware that those few people who have abandoned their beliefs are treated with revulsion by your community and driven out.

          Then, one day, you realize that this thing that has formed the core of your life is absolutely false. What do you do? You might think that you would “take it on the chin” and get on with a new life of truth, but you might well be deluding yourself. Most people are locked into the belief systems with which they were raised and find it impossible to break free, even if they know their beliefs are false.

          How many people in the world convert to a different religion from that of their birth? Why is it that the vast majority of Muslims stay as Muslims? Surely if other religions had a good message to impart then a sizeable number of Muslims would decide that they would be better off switching their allegiance. But they virtually never do.

          The reality is that few people reject the indoctrination they received from their parents. They don’t adopt a radically different religion or philosophy. They don’t risk being ostracized by their friends, family and community. When they realise that their religion is false, the vast majority react by adopting various coping mechanisms. For example, they pretend that they are still true believers. They know all the things they are expected to say and do, so they keep saying and doing them, albeit without any enthusiasm now. Or they enter a state of denial, or doublethink. A few even become more zealous believers than they ever were before, in the hope that if they fanatically re-embrace their beliefs they will somehow dispel the unbelief that now plagues them.

          Islam, one of the most successful religion in modern history, is the most comprehensively disproved religion of all time. Bookshops groan with tomes launching deadly attacks from every direction on Islam. Each book may contain some and possibly many factual errors, but nevertheless the general thrust in each case is undeniable. Islamic apologists invariably seize on the minor factual errors to try to discredit the attacks, but they never address the real point of all of these books: that Islam is history’s most flagrant fictional creation. Why hasn’t Islam already collapsed? Why do so many cling to it even though it is demonstrably false? Why do they reject the mass of evidence showing that their religious beliefs are absurd and almost insane?

          It’s because they are faced with a terrifying prospect: having to find something new to replace their old beliefs. How would they begin? They have no idea what they are looking for. There are so many choices facing them. How could they possibly decide between them all? Would they have to study every religion on earth to find the right one? And what if there wasn’t a right one? Maybe the atheists were right all along. So then they might have to study science instead. But look how difficult that is.

          So they do what the vast majority of human beings do: they follow the path of least resistance. They stick with what they know, with what is familiar to them. It’s easier to believe in something that is false than to discover what is true. The first path requires self-deception, hypocrisy and cynicism, the second requires the hardest work imaginable, with no guarantee of success. Perhaps you will be cast into the abyss of meaninglessness. So you remain where you are, holding beliefs that you no longer believe in. Isn’t that the fate of most of humanity?

          Virtually every Muslim, deep down, understands that their religion is ridiculous. The proof is that most of those who profess belief in Islam do not behave in a way that would ever be associated with the alleged message of their religion. They are supposed to be jihadic, murdering, raping, child molesting, enslaving, thieving, selfish, cruel, hateful, uncaring, cynical, violent, callous, aggressive, unhelpful, greedy, out for themselves, obsessed with power, glory, money and status.

          If ALL Muslims behaved in anything like the manner they are supposed to, the world would be unrecognizable. It would look like a Blood Bath. Nowhere is the vileness of Islam more apparent than in the Middle East. Who created this grotesque religion that has inflicted so much damage on the world? It certainly wasn’t a Prophet of God, more like a Demon from Hell.

          THE SECOND SIGN OF PROPHETHOOD

          According to the Traditions, Muhammad
          • acted as a drunkard (Ibn Hisham, Al-Sirah al-Nabawiya, chapter on how the revelation came to him).

          • would tremble, foam at the mouth and snore or moan like a camel or a newborn calf.
          “Narrated Safwan bin Ya’la bin Umaiya from his father who said: ‘A man came to the Prophet while he was at Ji’rana. The man was wearing a cloak which had traces of Khaluq or Sufra (a kind of perfume). The man asked (the Prophet), “What do you order me to perform in my ‘Umra?” So, Allah inspired the Prophet divinely and he was screened by a place of cloth. I wished to see the Prophet being divinely inspired. ‘Umar said to me, “Come! Will you be pleased to look at the Prophet while Allah is inspiring him?” I replied in the affirmative. ‘Umar lifted one corner of the cloth and I looked at the Prophet who was snoring. (The sub-narrator thought that he said: The snoring was like that of a camel). When that state was over, the Prophet asked, “Where is the questioner who asked about ‘Umra? Put off your cloak and wash away the traces of Khaluq from your body and clean the Sufra (yellow color) and perform in your Umra what you perform in your Hajj (i.e. the Tawaf round the Ka’ba and the Sa’i between Safa and Marwa).”‘” Vol. 3, Bk. 27, Number 17

          In the sahih collection of Muslim, there is an account by Hammam b. Yahya, from ‘Ata’, from Ya’la b. Umayya, who is quoted as saying,

          “‘Umar said to me, ‘Would you like to look at the Messenger of God while revelation is coming to him?’ He raised the edge of his robe from his face while he was receiving revelation at al-Ji’rana, and he was all flushed. And he would moan like a newborn Camel calf.” (Ibn Kathir, The Life of the Prophet Muhammad (Al-Sira al-Nabawiyya), translated by Professor Trevor Le Gassick, Reviewed by Dr. Ahmed Fareed [Garnet Publishing Limited, UK, First Paperback Edition: 2000], Volume I, p. 307; italic emphasis ours)
          See also Musnad Ahmad, Vol. 1, Nos. 34, 464 and Vol. VI. 163.

          • would move his lips rapidly in trying to recite and memorize the “revelation.”
          “Narrated Sa’id bin Jubair: Ibn ‘Abbas in the explanation of the Statement of Allah, ‘Move not your tongue concerning (the Quran) to make haste therewith.’ (75.16) Sa’id: ‘Allah’s Apostle used to bear the revelation with great trouble and used to move his lips (quickly) with the Inspiration.’ Ibn ‘Abbas moved his lips saying, ‘I am moving my lips in front of you as Allah’s Apostle used to move his.’ Sa’id moved his lips saying: ‘I am moving my lips, as I saw Ibn ‘Abbas moving his.’ Ibn ‘Abbas added, ‘So Allah revealed, “Move not your tongue concerning (the Qur’an) to make haste therewith. It is for us to collect it and to give you (O Muhammad) the ability to recite it (the Qur’an)” (75.16-17), which means that Allah will make him (the Prophet) remember the portion of the Qur’an which was revealed at that time by heart and recite it. The Statement of Allah: “And when We have recited it to you (O Muhammad through Gabriel) then you follow its (Qur’an) recital” (75.18) means “listen to it and be silent.” “Then it is for Us (Allah) to make It clear to you” (75.19) means “Then it is (for Allah) to make you recite it (and its meaning will be clear by itself through your tongue).” Afterwards, Allah’s Apostle used to listen to Gabriel whenever he came and after his departure he used to recite it as Gabriel had recited it.'” Vol. 1, Bk. 1, No. 4

          • the buzzing of bees could be heard around his face.
          “Imam Ahmad stated that ‘Abd al-Razzaq related to him, quoting Yunus b. Salim, who said that Yunus b. Yazid dictated to him, from Ibn Shihab, from ‘Urwa b. ‘Abd al-Rahman b. ‘Abd al-Qart who said, ‘I heard ‘Umar b. al-Khattab say, “When revelation came down to the Messenger of God, it would be heard like the buzzing of a bee near his face.”‘” (Ibn Kathir, The Life of the Prophet Muhammad, Volume I, p. 306)

          • perspiration the size of pearls would fall down from his forehead, even if it were cold out.

          • would hear the ringing of bells that caused intense pain.
          “Narrated ‘Aisha (the mother of the faithful believers): Al-Harith bin Hisham asked Allah’s Apostle, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! How is the Divine Inspiration revealed to you?’ Allah’s Apostle replied, ‘Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell, this form of Inspiration is the hardest of all and then this state passes off after I have grasped what is inspired. Sometimes the Angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me and I grasp whatever he says.’ ‘Aisha added: Verily I saw the Prophet being inspired Divinely on a very cold day and noticed the sweat dropping from his forehead (as the Inspiration was over).” Vol. 1, Bk. 1, No. 2
          “… So, there overtook him the same state which used to overtake him, (when he used to have, on being inspired divinely). He was sweating so much so that the drops of the sweat were dropping like pearls though it was a (cold) wintry day. When that state of Allah’s Apostle was over, he was smiling and the first word he said, ‘Aisha! Thank Allah, for Allah has declared your innocence.’ My mother told me to go to Allah’s Apostle. I replied, ‘By Allah I will not go to him and will not thank but Allah.’ So Allah revealed: “Verily! They who spread the slander are a gang among you . . .” (24.11).

          • suffered headaches and would faint.
          Abu Nu’aym related, from a tradition of Qutayba that ‘Ali b. Ghurab related to him, from al-Ahwas b. Hakim, from Abu ‘Awana, from Sa’id b. al-Musayyib, from Abu Hurayra, who said, “When revelation came down to the Messenger of God, he would get a headache and would cover his head with the henna plant.” (Ibn Kathir, The Life of the Prophet Muhammad, Vol. I, p. 308; italic emphasis ours)
          Abu Hurayrah narrated: “When the revelation came from Allah to the Prophet it was as if he had fainted.” (Abu Nu’aym). (As-Suyuti, Tahdhib al-khasa’is al-nabawiyyah al-kubra (“The Awesome Characteristics of the Prophet”) [Iz Publication, Istanbul 2003], p. 300)

          • would turn red and breathe heavily
          “Narrated Safwan bin Ya’la bin Umaiya: Ya’la used to say, ‘I wish I could see Allah’s apostle at the time he is being inspired Divinely.’ When the prophet was at Al-Ja’rana and was shaded by a garment hanging over him and some of his companions were with him, a man perfumed with scent came and said, ‘O Allah’s apostle! What is your opinion regarding a man who assumes Ihram and puts on a cloak after perfuming his body with scent?’ The prophet waited for a while, and then the Divine Inspiration descended upon him. ‘Umar pointed out to Ya’la, telling him to come. Ya’la came and pushed his head (underneath the screen which was covering the prophet) and behold! The prophet’s face was red and he kept on breathing heavily for a while and then he was relieved. Thereupon he said, ‘Where is the questioner who asked me about ‘Umra a while ago?’ The man was sought and then was brought before the prophet who said (to him), ‘As regards the scent which you perfumed your body with, you must wash it off thrice, and as for your cloak, you must take it off; and then perform in your ‘Umra all those things which you perform in Hajj.'” Volume 6, Bk. 61, No. 508

          We find that contrary to Muslim sentiment, these two signs fail to authenticate the prophethood of Muhammad for very good reasons. First, no Biblical prophet ever experienced these conditions during revelation. In fact, we find spiritists, mediums, diviners and those in the occult experiencing these conditions. One such person was the pagan Socrates who claimed that his philosophy was inspired by his Daimon (demon), who was also the cause of Socrates’ seizures. It was in this condition that Socrates received the ideas for the philosophical treatise he would eventually produce, or so he claimed.

          Muhammad himself believed that at first he was being possessed by a jinn (demon-spirit):

          “Narrated ‘Aisha: The commencement of the Divine Inspiration to Allah’s apostle was in the form of good righteous (true) dreams in his sleep. He never had a dream but that it came true like bright day light. He used to go in seclusion (the cave of) Hira where he used to worship (Allah Alone) continuously for many (days) nights. He used to take with him the journey food for that (stay) and then come back to (his wife) Khadija to take his food likewise again for another period to stay, till suddenly the Truth descended upon him while he was in the cave of Hira. The angel came to him in it and asked him to read. The Prophet replied, ‘I do not know how to read.’ (The prophet added), ‘The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and again asked me to read, and I replied, “I do not know how to read,” whereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and asked me again to read, but again I replied, “I do not know how to read (or, what shall I read?).” Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me and then released me and said, “Read: In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists). Has created man from a clot. Read and Your Lord is Most Generous,” up to, “that which he knew not.” (96.1-5)’

          “Then Allah’s apostle returned with the Inspiration, his neck muscles twitching WITH TERROR till he entered upon Khadija and said, ‘Cover me! Cover me!’ They covered him till his fear was over and then he said, ‘O Khadija, what is wrong with me?’ Then he told her everything that had happened and said, ‘I fear that something may happen to me.’ … But after a few days Waraqa died and the Divine Inspiration was also paused for a while and the prophet became so sad as we have heard that he intended SEVERAL TIMES TO THROW HIMSELF FROM THE TOPS OF HIGH MOUNTAINS and every time he went up the top of a mountain in order to throw himself down, Gabriel would appear before him and say, ‘O Muhammad! You are indeed Allah’s Apostle in truth,’ whereupon his heart would become quiet and he would calm down and would return home. And whenever the period of the coming of the inspiration used to become long, he would do as before, but when he used to reach the top of a mountain, Gabriel would appear before him and say to him what he had said before. (Ibn ‘Abbas said regarding the meaning of: ‘He it is that Cleaves the daybreak (from the darkness)’ (6.96) that Al-Asbah means the light of the sun during the day and the light of the moon at night).” Vol. 9, Bk. 87, no. 111

          MUHAMMAD’S FOSTER-MOTHER, HALIMA, BELIEVED HE WAS DEMON POSSESSED

          ‘Some months after our return he and his brother were with our lambs behind the tents when his brother came running and said to us, “Two men clothed in white have seized that Qurayshi brother of mine and thrown him down and opened up his belly, and are stirring it up.” We ran towards him and found him standing up with a livid face. We took hold of him and I asked him what was the matter. He said, “Two men in white raiment came and threw me down and opened up my belly and searched therein for I know not what.” So we took him back to our tent. His father said to me,

          “I am afraid that this child has had a stroke, so take him back to his family before the result appears.”

          So we picked him up and took him to his mother who asked why we had brought him when I had been anxious for his welfare and desirous of keeping him with me. I said to her,

          “God has let my son live so far and I have done my duty. I am afraid that ill will befalls him, so I have brought him back to you as you wished.”

          She asked me what happened and gave me no peace until I told her. When she asked if I feared a demon possessed him, I replied that I did. She answered that no demon had any power over her son who had a great future before him, and then she told how when she was pregnant with him a light went out from her vagina which illumined the castles of Busra in Syria, and that she had borne him with the least difficulty imaginable. When she bore him he put his hands on the ground lifting his head towards the heavens.

          “Leave him then and go in peace,” she said.’ (The Life of Muhammad: A Translation of Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah, with introduction and notes by Alfred Guillaume [Oxford University Press, Karachi, Tenth impression 1995], pp. 71-72; bold and italic emphasis ours)

          And:

          WAS MUHAMMAD RAPED BY BEDOUIN ARABS

          The following story connected with Muhammad’s stay with Halimah is related by Abu ‘l-Fida’ (p. 64).

          When some time passed, Muhammad and his foster-brother went out to a distance from the house, when Halimah’s son came to his mother and said.

          “Two men clothed in white raiment have taken hold of the Quraish boy, and have thrown him down and have ripped open his belly.” So Halimah and her husband went to the place where the child was, but found him standing on his feet. And they said, “What has happened to thee child?” And he answered and said, “Two men came to me, and threw me down and ripped up my belly.” Then Halimah’s husband said to her,

          “I greatly fear that this boy has got the epilepsy.”

          So they took him to his mother Aminah. And Halimah said to Aminah,

          “I am afraid he is possessed of a devil.”

          But Aminah said,

          “What in the world can Satan have to do with my son that he should be his enemy?”

          (Hughes, Dictionary of Islam, p. 368; bold and italic emphasis ours)

          A further indication of the occultic nature of Muhammad’s revelations is seen by the following examples taken from the Bible and Islamic sources.

          According to al-Waqidi,

          “Muhammad had such a repugnance to the form of the cross that he broke everything brought into his house with that figure upon it.”

          (Dictionary of Islam, p. 63)

          We wonder as to what could have caused such a violent reaction to the symbol of the cross which pointed to the Lord Jesus’ victory on Calvary? The Holy Bible provides the answer,

          “Then one of the crowd answered and said, ‘Teacher, I brought you my son, who has a mute spirit. And whenever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid …’ Then they brought him to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit convulsed him, and he fell on the ground and wallowed, foaming at the mouth … When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it: ‘Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!’ Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said, ‘He is dead.'”

          Mark 9:17-18, 20, 25-26

          All one has to do is to compare Muhammad’s condition at the time of revelation with that of this demon possessed boy and the conclusion is obvious; the spirit inspiring Muhammad was most certainly not of God.

    • muslims claim, that a proof the quran was from God, is that it contains scientifically accurate information about Embryology before man discovered it for himself. However, all the information in the quran regarding Embryology is copied from three sources, 1. A Greek doctor named Galen, who lived of 150 AD. 2. A Jewish doctor named Samuel ha-Yehudi who lived 150 AD. 3. the Greek father of medicine Hippocrates who lived 400 BC. In light of the fact that all the information contained in the quran was already in print by these three doctors, will you retract the argument on Embryology? If not, will you supply one detail revealed in the quran about Embryology, that was not already revealed or that was new?

      In 86:6-7 the quran says, “man was created from ejected liquid- Proceeding from between the backbone and the ribs”. This echoes the scientific error of Hippocrates who believed semen originates, from the brain down the spinal chord, before passing through the kidneys and finally out of the body. (Hippocratic Writings, Penguin Classics, 1983, p. 317) Do you reject modern science and believe the quran when it says sperm originates from the mid-gut section of a man’s body?

      muslims claim, that the many different translations of the English Bible (translated from Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic) will render a single text with many different words and phrases. You said this was proof the Bible is corrupted and that the quran reads exactly the same way everywhere in the world in Arabic. Since the many English translations of the quran also render a single text with many different words, does that proof that the quran is corrupted?

      The text of the quran in 37:103 reads “they had both submitted to their wills” (became muslims) while the Arabic text of the Tashkent MSS gives the exact opposite meaning, “they did not submit to their wills” (they did NOT become muslims.) Have you actually read the Tashkent MSS for yourself in this passage and how do you explain this textual variation given you claim on the miracle of the perfect quran?

      In quran 7:124, death by crucifixion is stated to exist at the time of Moses in 1500BC. Yet Encyclopedia Britannica, in harmony with all records of history, reports that crucifixion did not exist any earlier than 500 BC. So how do you explain this blaring historical error, and do you just disregard the history of the world merely because the quran says otherwise?

      The Bible defines a miracle as something that defies the laws of nature. muslims claim the quran is a miracle merely because it was allegedly transmitted perfectly without alteration and flaw till the second coming. Since the Harry Potter books will certainly be transmitted perfectly without alteration or flaw, and be around until the second coming, so does this make the Harry Potter books a miracle like the quran?

      muslims believe that the whole concept of blood atonement is an invention of the Christian church. What were the Jews doing since 1500 BC on the “day of atonement”?

      • HB, sperms cannot move on their own without the seminal fluid which comes out from the backbone area. Refer to this video link, which confirms the Quran written 1400 years ago!

        Also, can you provide us of what you say : “…was already in print by these three doctors..”
        Kindly provide us with those prints…and we will make sure you do NOT run away from answering us, okay?

        Next you said : Every Bible is different when it comes to details. In some verses are added and in others verses are expunged. In many, details are distorted. I will give you an example : Take Acts 5:30

        (NIV) The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from the dead—whom you killed by hanging him on a cross.
        (KJV) The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.

        Is a Tree = to Cross? Whom you slew!! Whom you killed!!!!!

        All the Quran texts are the same dot to dot. The Quran Hafiz in the caves of Afghanistan and the Hafiz on a remote Island in south America recite the same Quran…dot to dot…ditto!!!!!!

        There was NO Encyclopedia Britannica before the Quran! Quran is the Source of Information that Encyclopedia Britannica has collected from!

        Harry Potter books do NOT reveal Morality, Code of Conduct, Ethics, and the potter books will become obscured with the passing of time….whereby the Quran is the Book as a guidance for ALL time to come and will never become obscure!!!!

        The Salvation theory in the Bible crept in the Church because of the crook Paul, the liar. He was eventually decapitated by the same Church. Why do you love the Jews when they killed your Messiah???? When they killed your Son of God…why do you love them???

        Do you know that the Jews of Germany are NOT the same Jews of Arabia…otherwise ask yourself where did the millions of “Jews’ in Germany suddenly pop-up from during the time of Hitler. The land of Palestinians was grabbed by the British and USA and the German-Jews were settled there in 1948 and that grabbed land declared for them…..and Israel came into being. Now, you hit at the Palestinians who fight for their land!!!!!!!!

        • WHO IS THE DUMBEST CLOWN IN TOWN? PLUM IS! THE COSMIC JOKE YOU DON’T NEED TO KNOW ARABIC TO REALIZE THAT THE QURAN IS A “COSMIC” JOKE SO THIS IS ALLAH’S PERFECT BOOK? “The Qur’an escapes from the hearts of men faster than a runaway camel.” The present text of the Koran, which all Muslims accept as the only non-falsified holy book, was collected 15-20 years after the death of Muhammad in the time of the Caliph Uthman who ordered all previous collections to be burned. But you don’t have to dig very deep to find the truth. Even a cursory reading of the Qur’an is sufficient to prove that it is a fraud. There is no way the creator of the universe wrote a book devoid of context, without chronology or intelligent transitions. Such a creative spirit wouldn’t need to plagiarize. He would know history and science and thus wouldn’t have made such a fool of himself. The God who created man wouldn’t deceive him or lead him to hell as Allah does. Nor would he order men to terrorize, mutilate, rob, enslave, and slaughter the followers of other Scriptures he claims he revealed, wiping them out to the last. One doesn’t need a scholastic review of the Qur’anic text to disprove its veracity. It destroys itself quite nicely. Tradition tells us that Muhammad had not foreseen his death, and so he had made no preparations for gathering his revelations. He left it up to his followers to sift through the conflicting versions. There is not a SINGLE idea in the Quran that has not been plagiarized, pirated, plundered or perverted from the belief of others! The only new items in the Quran are the enormous amounts of hate, war, torture & Hellish verses that permeate through its pages. Mohammedanism is the Cult of Mohammed & both Quran & Hadithss instruct his followers to slavishly emulate his deeds, thoughts, manner & ideas. This is Cultism. Islam provides only one prime source of information on Muhammad and the formation of Islam written within two centuries of the time he lived and it was conceived. Ishaq’s Sira, or Biography, stands alone—a singular and tenuous thread connecting us to a very troubled man and time. Over the next two hundred years, other Hadith Collections were compiled by the likes of Tabari, Bukhari, and Muslim. Their assemblages of oral reports, or Traditions, were said to have been inspired by Allah. They purport to convey Muhammad’s words and example. They also explain the Qur’an—a book so deficient in context and chronology, it can only be understood when seen through the eyes of the Sunnah writers. Their message is all that Muslims have. Together, the Sunnah and Qur’an are Islam. Bragging one day, Muhammad called his surahs a miracle: Bukhari:V6B61N504 “Muhammad said, ‘Every Prophet was given miracles because of which people believed. But what I have been given is Divine Inspiration which Allah has revealed to me. So I hope that my followers will outnumber the followers of the other Prophets.\'” If the Qur’an was his only “miracle,” why would he leave it in such horrid condition? I believe the answer is clear. Muhammad knew his recitals had been nothing more than a figment of his less-than-admirable imagination, situational scriptures designed to satiate his cravings. Preserving these recitals would only serve to incriminate him, as this Hadith suggests. Muslim: C24B20N4609 “The Messenger said: ‘Do not take the Qur’an on a journey with you, for I am afraid lest it would fall into the hands of the enemy.’ Ayyub, one of the narrators in the chain of transmitters, said: ‘The enemy may seize it and may quarrel with you over it.\'” A number of Bukhari Hadith suggest that Muhammad’s companions tried to remember what they could of what he had said, but there was a problem. Like today, those who knew the Qur’an were militants. So Abu Bakr feared that large portions would be forgotten. The best Muslims were dying on the battlefield subduing fellow Arabs. In one battle alone, most of the Qur’an’s most knowledgeable reciters were lost, and many Qur’anic passages along with them. Bukhari:V6B60N201 “Zaid bin Thabit, the Ansari said, ‘Abu Bakr sent for me after the (heavy) casualties among the warriors (of the battle) of Yamama (where a great number of Muhammad’s Companions were killed). Umar was present with Bakr. “The people have suffered heavy casualties at Yamama, and I am afraid that there will be more casualties among those who can recite the Qur’an on other battlefields. A large part of the Qur’an may be lost unless you collect it.” I replied to Umar, “How can I do something which Allah’s Apostle has not done?” Umar kept on pressing, trying to persuade me to accept his proposal.’ Zaid bin Thabit added, ‘Umar was sitting with Abu Bakr and was speaking (to) me. “You are a wise young man and we do not suspect you of telling lies or of forgetfulness. You used to write the Divine Inspiration for Allah’s Apostle. Therefore, look for the Qur’an and collect it (in one manuscript).” By Allah, if Abu Bakr had ordered me to shift one of the mountains (from its place) it would have been easier for me than the collection of the Qur’an. I said to both of them, “How dare you do a thing which the Prophet has not done?” Zaid declared that collecting the Qur’an’s surahs would be an impossible task. He said that it would be easier to move mountains than to turn Muhammad’s string of oral recitals into a book. The reason for this rather troubling statement is obvious: Zaid’s search for Qur’anic passages forced him to rely upon carvings on the leg or thigh bones of dead animals, as well as palm leaves, skins, mats, stones, and bark. But for the most part, he found nothing better than the fleeting memories of the prophet’s Companions, many of whom were dead or dying. In other words, the Qur’an, like the Hadith, is all hearsay. There were no Muslims who had memorized the entire Qur’an, otherwise the collection would have been a simple task. Had there been individuals who knew the Qur’an, Zaid would only have had to write down what they dictated. Instead, Zaid was overwhelmed by the assignment, and was forced to “search” for the passages from men who believed that they had memorized certain segments and then compare what he heard to the recollection of others. Therefore, even the official Islamic view of things, the one recorded in their scripture, is hardly reassuring. Worse still, the Muslim chosen for this impossible task was the one in the best position to plagiarize the Torah and Talmud. Moreover, it’s obvious he did. Remember: Tabari VII:167 “In this year, the Prophet commanded Zayd bin Thabit to study the Book of the Jews, saying, ‘I fear that they may change my Book.\'” the worse it gets. Bukhari:V6B61N511 “Zaid bin Thabit said, ‘I started searching for the Qur’an till I found the last two Verses of Surat At-Tauba with Abi but I could not find them with anyone other than him. They were: ‘Verily there has come to you an Apostle from amongst yourselves.\'” [9:128] This is incriminating. The 9th surah was the second to last revealed. If only one person could remember it, there is no chance those revealed twenty-five years earlier were retained. Furthermore, this Tradition contradicts the most highly touted Islamic mantra: Most Muslims contend Uthman, not Bakr, ordered the collection of the Qur’an a decade later. And who knows what version they finally committed to paper, if in fact they ever did? Bukhari:V6B61N513: “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Gabriel [whom Muhammad said had 600 wings] recited the Qur’an to me in one way. Then I requested him and continued asking him to recite it in other ways, and he recited it in several ways till he ultimately recited it in seven different ways.\'” SO THERE WERE AT LEAST 7 QUR’ANS THE QU’RAN CHALLENGE! • In Bukhari’s Hadith we find a sea of disturbing and contradictory claims regarding the compilation of Allah’s book. There were differing versions, even in Muhammad’s day: Then Abdallah came to him, and he learned what was altered and abrogated.” This is reasonably clear. The Hadith says that portions of the Qur’an were conflicting, changed, and cancelled. WHY QURAN WAS WRITTEN DOWN • Ibn Abi Dawud, Kitab al-Masahif—Many (of the passages) of the Qur’an that were sent down were known by those who died on the day of Yamama . . . but they were not known (by those who) survived them, nor were they written down, nor had Abu Bakr, Umar or Uthman (by that time) collected the Qur’an, nor were they found with even one (person) after them. THE REMAINDER QURAN Abu Bakr decided that it was time to gather what remained of the Qur’an in order to prevent more from being lost, and he appointed Zaid ibn Thabit to this task. After Zaid completed his codex around 634 AD, it remained in Abu Bakr’s possession until his death, when it was passed on to Caliph Umar. When Umar died, it was given to Hafsa, a widow of Muhammad. (For a fuller account see Sahih al-Bukhari 4986.) THE “PERFECT” QURAN IS MISSING When Ibn Umar—son of the second Muslim caliph—heard people declaring that they knew the entire Qur’an, he said to them: “Let none of you say, ‘I have learned the whole of the Koran,’ for how does he know what the whole of it is, when much of it has disappeared? Let him rather say, ‘I have learned what is extant thereof\'” (Abu Ubaid, Kitab Fada’il-al-Qur’an). UTHMAN’S QURAN During Caliph Uthman’s reign, approximately 19 years after the death of Muhammad, disputes arose concerning the correct recitation of the Qur’an. Uthman ordered that Hafsa’s copy of the Qur’an, along with all known textual materials, should be gathered together so that an official version might be compiled. Zaid ibn Thabit, Abdullah bin Az-Zubair, Sa’id bin Al-As, and Abdur-Rahman bin Harith worked diligently to construct a revised text of the Qur’an. Bukhari:V4B56N709 “Uthman called Zaid, Abdallah, Said, and Abd-Rahman. They wrote the manuscripts of the Qur’an in the form of a book in several copies. Uthman said to the three Quraishi persons, ‘If you differ with Zaid bin Thabit on any point of the Qur’an, then write it in the language of the Quraysh, as the Qur’an was revealed in their language.’ So they acted accordingly.” Because there was such confusion, Uthman ordered competing versions to be burned. But by destroying the evidence, he destroyed the Qur’an’s credibility. Now all Muslims have is wishful thinking. WHO BURNT THE FIRST QURANS? When it was finished, “Uthman sent to every Muslim province one copy of what they had copied, and ordered that all the other Qur’anic materials, whether written in fragmentary manuscripts or whole copies, be burnt” (Sahih al-Bukhari 4987). The Qur’an we have today is descended from the Uthmanic codex. ZAID’S QURAN REJECTED Muhammad once told his followers to “Learn the recitation of the Qur’an from four: from Abdullah bin Masud—he started with him—Salim, the freed slave of Abu Hudhaifa, Mu’adh bin Jabal and Ubai bin Ka’b” (Sahih al-Bukhari 3808). Interestingly, Ibn Masud (first on Muhammad’s list) held that the Qur’an should only have 111 chapters (today’s version has 114 chapters), and that chapters 1, 113, and 114 shouldn’t have been included in the Qur’an. FLAWED QURAN Due to these disputes among Muhammad’s hand-picked reciters, Muslims are faced with a dilemma. If Muslims say that the Qur’an we have today has been perfectly preserved, they must say that Muhammad was horrible at choosing scholars, since he selected men who disagreed with today’s text. If, on the other hand, Muslims say that their prophet would know whom to pick regarding Islam’s holiest book, they must conclude that the Qur’an we have today is flawed! 2 CHAPTERS MISSING FROM THE “PERFECT” QURAN One of Muhammad’s companions, Abu Musa, supported this claim when he said that the early Muslims forgot two surahs (chapters) due to laziness: Sahih Muslim 2286 THE PART THE GOAT EAT Aisha also tells us that individual verses of the Qur’an disappeared, sometimes in very interesting ways: Sunan ibn Majah 1944—It was narrated that Aishah said: “The Verse of stoning and of breastfeeding an adult ten times was revealed, and the paper was with me under my pillow. When the Messenger of Allah died, we were preoccupied with his death, and a tame sheep/goat came in and ate it.” The verses on stoning and breastfeeding an adult not in the Qur’an today. MISSING PASSAGES We know further that large sections of certain chapters came up missing. For instance, Muhammad’s wife Aisha said that roughly two-thirds of Surah 33 was lost: Abu Ubaid, Kitab Fada’il-al-Qur’an—A’isha . . . said, “Surat al-Ahzab (xxxiii) used to be recited in the time of the Prophet with two hundred verses, but when Uthman wrote out the codices he was unable to procure more of it than there is in it today [i.e. 73 verses].” • Sahih al-Bukhari 5005—Umar said, “Ubayy was the best of us in the recitation (of the Qur’an), yet we leave some of what he recites.” Ubayy says, “I have taken it from the mouth of Allah’s Messenger and will not leave it for anything whatever.” • • But Ibn Masud wasn’t the only one of Muhammad’s trusted teachers who disagreed with Zaid’s Qur’an. Ubayy ibn Ka’b was Muhammad’s best reciter and one of the only Muslims to collect the materials of the Qur’an during Muhammad’s lifetime. Yet Ibn Ka’b believed that Zaid’s Qur’an was missing two chapters! Later Muslims were therefore forced to reject some of Ibn Ka’b’s recitation: • • Ibn Masud advised Muslims to reject Zaid’s Qur’an and to keep their own versions—even to hide them so that they wouldn’t be confiscated by the government! He said: Jami at-Tirmidhi 3104—”O you Muslim people! Avoid copying the Mushaf and recitation of this man. By Allah! When I accepted Islam he was but in the loins of a disbelieving man”—meaning Zaid bin Thabit—and it was regarding this that Abdullah bin Mas’ud said: “O people of Al-Iraq! Keep the Musahif that are with you, and conceal them.” • Because of this (along with hundreds of other textual differences), Ibn Masud went so far as to call the final edition of the Qur’an a deception! He said, “The people have been guilty of deceit in the reading of the Qur’an. I like it better to read according to the recitation of him [i.e. Muhammad] whom I love more than that of Zayd Ibn Thabit” (Ibn Sa’d, Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir, Vol. 2, p. 444). THE BOOK FROM HELL: DEMONS LOVE LISTENING TO THE QURAN And Allaah revealed other aayahs in a separate soorah, where He says: “Say (O Muhammad): “It has been revealed to me that a group (from three to ten in number) of jinn listened (to this Qur’aan). They said: ‘Verily, we have heard a wonderful Recitation (this Qur’aan)!” [al-Jinn 72:1] MUHAMMAD HAD A DEVIL COMPANION WHO BECAME A MUSLIM Even the Prophet had a shaytaan with him, his constant companion (qareen) from among the jinn, in the hadeeth which says that the Prophet said: “There is no one among you but he has with him a constant companion (qareen) from among the jinn and a constant companion from among the angels.” They said, “You too, O Messenger of Allaah?” He said, “Me too, but Allaah has helped me against him (the devil-companion) and he has become Muslim.” MUHAMMAD CREATED THE QURAN The Quran was created by Muhammad, a conquering warlord, as a manual for oppressing his enemies. He knew that religion could be used as a powerful psychological tool, both to gain followers and to oppress enemies. But if you read the many, many explicitly violent passages in the Quran, you will see that it was not written by a holy man: Quran (5:33) — “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement” Qur’an (22:19-22) — “These twain (the believers and the disbelievers) are two opponents who contend concerning their Lord. But as for those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads. Whereby that which is in their bellies, and their skins too, will be melted; And for them are hooked rods of iron. Whenever, in their anguish, they would go forth from thence they are driven back therein and (it is said unto them): Taste the doom of burning.” Qur’an (33:61) — “Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.” And that’s just a few examples! Here are a few more examples: Quran (8:12) — “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” Quran (2:191-193) — “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]…and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.” Quran (4:89) — “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize Imperfect Qur’an Another reason why the Qur’an fails the criteria as “the word of a perfect God” is because of the imperfections within the Qur’an. The Qur’an is riddled with literary contradictions, scientific errors, and historical inaccuracies. An imperfect literary style is used in the Qur’an. On the whole, while many parts of the Qur’an undoubtedly have considerable rhetorical power, even over an unbelieving reader, the book, aesthetically considered, is by no means a first-rate performance. …let us look at some of the more extended narratives. It has already been noticed how vehement and abrupt they are where they ought to be characterized by epic repose. Indispensable links, both in expression and in the sequence of events, are often omitted, so that to understand these histories is sometimes far easier for us than for those who learned them first, because we know most of them from better sources. Along with this, there is a great deal of superfluous verbiage; and nowhere do we find a steady advance in the narration. Contrast, in these respects, “the most beautiful tale,” the history of Joseph (xii.), and its glaring improprieties, with the story in Genesis, so admirably executed in spite of some slight discrepancies. Similar faults are found in the non-narrative portions of the Qur’an. The connection of ideas is extremely loose, and even the syntax betrays great awkwardness. Anancloutha are of frequent occurrence, and cannot be explained as conscious literary devices. Many sentences begin with a “when” or “on the day when,” which seem to hover in the air, so that the commentators are driven to supply a “think of this” or some ellipsis. Again, there is no great literary skill evinced in the frequent and needless harping on the same words and phrases; in xviii., for example, “till that” (hatta idha) occurs no fewer than eight times. Muhammad, in short, is not in any sense a master of style. Nöldeke, Theodor. “The Qur’an,” Sketches from Eastern History. Trans. J.S. Black. London: Adam and Charles Black, 1892. Plagiarism in Muhammad’s Time The Qur’an tells us that Muhammad’s critics caught him plagiarizing traditions, folklore, and Jewish and Christian scripture. Examples: We have heard this (before): if we wished, we could say (words) like these: these are nothing but tales of the ancients” (8:31). “Such things have been promised to us and to our fathers before! They are nothing but tales of the ancients!” (23:83) ZOROASTRIANS TRADITIONS In regard to the Islamic versions of heaven, a paradise, plagiarism from non-Abrahamic beliefs is also evident. None of this, of course, can be found in the Jewish or Christian Scriptures, but it is in the writings of the Zoroastrians of Persia, who were a considerable presence in the areas around the Persian Empire before the advent of Islam. According to historian W. St. Clair Tisdall, who did pioneering work on these questions in his monograph “The Sources of Islam,” which he later expanded into a book, and in his other writings, “The books of the Zoroastrians and Hindus… bear the most extraordinary likeness to what we find in the Koran and Hadith. Thus in Paradise we are told of ‘houris having fine black eyes,’ and again of ‘houris with large black eyes, resembling pearls hidden in their shells.’… The name houry too is derived from an Avesta or Pehlavi Source, as well as jinn for genii, and bihisht (Paradise), signifying in Avestic ‘the better land.’ We also have very similar tales in the old Hindu writings, of heavenly regions with their boys and girls resembling the houris and ghilman of the Koran. Source: The Truth About Muhammad by Robert Spencer (2006) DIFFERENT QUR’ANS IN MUHAMMAD’S TIME Islamic sources tell us that Muhammad’s followers would argue because Muhammad provided contradicting versions of the Qur’an. A notable example appears in Bulhari’s Hadith: Umar ibn Khattab [the second Caliph] said, ‘I heard Hisham bin Hakim bin Hizam reciting Surat Al-Furqan [“Al-Furqan,” the title of the 25th surah, has no meaning in any language.] during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle. I listened to his recitation and noticed that he recited it in several ways which Allah’s Apostle had not taught me. So I was on the point of attacking him in the prayer, but I waited till he finished, and then I seized him by the collar. “Who taught you this Surah which I have heard you reciting?” He replied, “Allah’s Apostle taught it to me.” I said, “You are lying. Allah’s Apostle taught me in a different way this very Surah which I have heard you reciting.” So I led him to Muhammad. “O Allah’s Apostle! I heard this person reciting Surat-al-Furqan in a way that you did not teach me.” The Prophet said, “Hisham, recite!” So he recited in the same way as I heard him recite it before. On that Allah’s Apostle said, “It was revealed to be recited in this way.” Then the Prophet said, “Recite, Umar!” So I recited it as he had taught me. Allah’s Apostle said, “It was revealed to be recited in this way, too.” He added, “The Qur’an has been revealed to be recited in several different ways, so recite of it that which is easier for you.” (Bukhari:V6B61N561) DEVOID OF CONTEXT The Qur’an in itself as a source for anything is devoid of context and thus arbitrary. Being devoid of context and any understanding, how can it be understood as the word of God? We do not have material in the Qur’an to compose a biography of Muhammad because the book is a disjointed discourse, a pastiche [imitation, parody] of divine monologues that can be assembled into a homily [lecture, sermon] or perhaps a catechism [snippets of dogma] but that reveals little or nothing about the life of Muhammad and his contemporaries…. The Qur’an give us no assurance that its words and sentiments are likely to be authentic in the light of the context they were delivered and in the manner of their transmission. There are no clues as to when or where or why these particular words were being uttered…. The Qur’an is of no use whatsoever as an independent source for reconstructing the life of Muhammad. The Qur’an is not terribly useful even for reconstructing the Meccan milieu much less the life of the man who uttered its words; it is a text without context. Source: Jay Smith, “Is the Qur’an the Word of God?”, 1995 THE QUR’AN IS A BOOK OF MYTHS, FABLES AND FAIRY TALES Do your research! The Qur’an is a revised counterfeit of 6th century polytheism, composed of previously existing pagan beliefs, practices and fairy tales. For example: The Qur’an says men were turned into apes because they broke the Sabbath. This was a popular legend in Muhammad’s day (Suras 2:65; 7:163-166). The Quran repeats fanciful Arabian fables as if they were true. “Arabic legends about the fabulous jinns fill its pages” (G.G. Pfander, Balance of Truth, pp. 283). “The story of the she-camel who leapt out of a rock and became a prophet was known long before Muhammad” (Qur’an, Suras 7:73-77,85; 91:14; 54:29). The story of an entire village of people who were turned into apes because they broke the Sabbath by fishing was a popular legend in Muhammad’s day (Qur’an, Suras 2:65; 7:163-166). The gushing 12 springs story found in Qur’an, Sura 2:60 comes from pre-Islamic legends. In what is called the “Rip Van Winkle” story, seven men and their animals slept for 309 years in a cave and then woke up perfectly fine (Qur’an, Sura 18:9-26)! This legend is found in Greek and Christian fables as well as Arabian lore. The fable of the pieces of four dead, cut-up birds getting up and flying was well known in Muhammad’s time (Qur’an, Sura 2:260). It is also clear that Muhammad used such pre-Islamic literature as the Saba Moallaqat of Imra’ul Cays in his composition of Qur’an, Suras 21:96; 29:31,46; 37:59; 54:1, and 93:1. Many of the stories in the Quran come from the Jewish Talmud, the Midrash, and many apocryphal works. This was pointed out by Abraham Geiger in 1833, and further documented by another Jewish scholar, Dr. Abraham Katsh, of New York University, in 1954 (The Concise Dictionary of Islam, p. 229; Jomier, The Bible and the Quran — Henry Regency Co., Chicago, 1959, 59ff; Sell, Studies, pp. 163ff.; Guillaume, Islam, p. 13). The source of Qur’an, Sura 3:35-37 is the fanciful book called The Protevangelion’s James the Lesser. The source of Qur’an, Sura 87:19 is the Testament of Abraham. The source of Qur’an, Sura 27:17-44 is the Second Targum of Esther. The fantastic tale that God made a man “die for a hundred years” with no ill effects on his food, drink, or donkey was a Jewish fable (Qur’an Sura 2:259ff.). The idea that Moses was resurrected and other material came from the Jewish Talmud (Qur’an, Sura 2:55, 56, 67). • The story in Qur’an, Sura 5:30,31 can also be found in pre-Islamic works from Pirke Rabbi Eleazer, the Targum of Jonathan ben Uzziah and the Targum of Jerusalem. The tale of Abraham being delivered from Nimrod’s fire came from the Midrash Rabbah (see Qur’an, Suras 21:51-71; 29:16, 17; 37:97,98). It must be also pointed out that Nimrod and Abraham did not live at the same time. Muhammad was always mixing people together in the Quran who did not live at the same time. The non-biblical details of the visit of the Queen of Sheba (Saba) in Qur’an, Sura 27:20-44 came from the Second Targum of the Book of Esther. The source of Qur’an, Sura 2:102 is no doubt the Midrash Yalkut (chapter 44). The story found in Qur’an, Sura 7:171 of God lifting up Mount Sinai and holding it over the heads of the Jews as a threat to squash them if they rejected the law came from the Jewish book Abodah Sarah. • The making of the golden calf in the wilderness, in which the image jumped out of the fire fully formed and actually mooed (Qur’an Suras 7:148; 20:88), came from Pirke Rabbi Eleazer. • • The seven heavens and hells described in the Quran came from the Zohar and the Hagigah. • • Muhammad utilized the Testament of Abraham to teach that a scale or balance will be used on the day of judgment to weigh good and bad deeds in order to determine whether one goes to heaven or hell (Qur’an, Suras 42:17; 101:6-9). • The Quran Was Not Preserved “We have sent down the Quran and surely We will protect” — The Quran 15:9 Surat Al-Ĥijr (The Rocky Tract) – سورة الحجر Sahih International Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian. INTRODUCTION Most Muslims are familiar with the above verse from the Quran, which they consider as the concrete proof that the Quran is perfectly preserved. The verse is clear; Allah pledges to protect his book from corruption, which provides Muslims with a much needed assurance that their holy book is reliable. Such assurance was necessary to Muslims whose confidence in the divine scriptures was shaken after the Quran’s repeated accusations to other nations of tampering with their own scriptures. Muslims are taught that preservation of the Quran is an accepted fact that distinguishes Islam from the rest. The claim aims to make the Quran stand out as the only true divine book in the procession of mankind today. The Muslims’ claim is a big lie that has proved to be a very successful selling point to converts who often refer to the Quran in that sense. It is not advisable to question the authenticity of the Quran with Muslims unless you are sure of their relative tolerance. The Muslims clouded minds quickly moves into circular logic such as: “Of course, every word in the Quran is preserved as Allah revealed it to his prophet, this is an absolute fact because Allah vowed to protect his book from any corruption” It would be a struggle to try to point out that a statement in the Quran can not be accepted as a proof of its authenticity. From a scientific point of view, the Quran and Islam wouldn’t stand a chance if subjected to proper historical scrutiny (1). Mohammed’s birth and life, the Quran and the beginning of Islam are all shrouded with a thick coat of vagueness and obscurity. But this article discredits the Islamic claim on the basis of the accepted Islamic history. HOW THE QUR’AN WAS PRESERVED As all Muslims know, the Quran was not Allah’s first book; a few others were revealed centuries before the Quran. None of those scriptures survived to our day because they were tampered with by the very people to whom they were revealed. Fourteen hundreds years ago, Allah decided conclusively to reveal a scripture, once and for all, which He called the Quran, and vowed to protect it from corruption. We do not know the reasons why people tampered with the earlier scriptures. Did they gain anything by deliberately making changes to Allah’s words? Why they did not fear Allah, especially with all the stories in those scriptures, about Allah’s punishments to those who dared to disobey Him. We also do not know why Allah allowed his books to be tampered with. Even human writers do not allow any changes to their works. As Allah pledges to protect the Quran, one would think that He would create the ideal conditions for His revelation along with man-proof measures to safeguard the Quran. Well, it doesn’t look to us that way. On the contrary, it looks as if Allah made every effort to make the Quran disappear, even before its revelation was completed. Let us examine the circumstances of the Quranic revelation: The Nation The Quran was revealed in the seventh century to the Arabs, one of the most illiterate nations of the time. It was the Arabs first ever book. Before the Quran the Arabs never authored a book and had no idea how books look like or how to handle them. Revealing the Quran to the Arabs sets the scene for mistakes of all kinds. THE TIMING The Quran was revealed before the Arabic script was fully developed. The Arabic script was not yet suitable for writing anything with significance because many letters shared the same appearance. The script problem was only solved, decades after Mohammed’s death, by adding dots to the script. It is only fair to wonder why Allah rushed the Quran before the Arabic script was well developed. It looks strange that the Arabs used the same script for multiple letters. But before the Quran, the Arabs only managed to write a few pieces of poetry. Reading the script served as a reminder for the reader of what they already knew by heart. As a matter of fact, the Arabic script still suffers of a similar problem in our time. There are many Arabic words (not letters) that share exactly the same appearance, even after adding the dots. It is usually left for the reader to work out, from the context, the proper pronunciation of a particular word. To distinguish those words from each other, printing has to include the diacritical marks (like fat-ha, kasra, and damma ), which the Arabs started to use more than a century after Mohammed’s death. Although used in the Quran, the diacritical marks are rarely used in every day printing of ordinary books or newspapers because they make the words cluttered and printing more demanding. THE ILLERATE RECEIVER At the time of the Quranic revelations, there were some Arabs who were educated enough to be able to read and write. Out of all the Arabs, Allah appointed Mohammed, an illiterate person, to be in charge of the Quran. This is like appointing an illiterate person to be in charge of editing an important newspaper. THE SCRIBES Mohammed had some scribes working for him in Medina. After a revelation, Mohammed would ask whoever was available of those scribes to write the revealed verse/verses. The scribe service was not available to Mohammed when he was still a weak person with only a handful of followers in Mecca. Therefore, it is fair to assume that the Meccan verses, over one third of the Quran, were not written immediately by scribes. Being an illiterate person, Mohammed had no means to check the work of the scribes for errors that could have been made accidentally or on purpose. Being trustworthy himself is meaningless if Mohammed had to leave the work to be completed by ordinary people without supervision. THE STORY OF IBN ABU AL SARH: This is a very important and very little known story about the Quran. Muslim scholars make every effort to tuck it away and keep it out of sight of ordinary Muslims. In short: Abdulla Ibn Abu Al Sarh was one of the scribes in Medina. Once Mohammed dictated to him a verse that has one of the common endings like, aleem khabeer or hakeem aleem. When Ibn Abu Al Sarh reached the end of the verse he double checked with Mohammed: “Oh prophet of Allah, is it hakeem aleem?” to which Mohammed said ‘yes, it is’. Ibn Abu Al Sarh became suspicious because he thought it was aleem khabeer. Ibn Abu Al Sarh decided to test Mohammed in future verses and noticed that Mohammed accepts his suggestions of aleem khabeer or hakeem aleem or other endings that do not distort the meaning. Ibn Abu Al Sarh concluded that Mohammed was not a prophet but an impostor. He denounced Islam and defected to Mecca and told the Quraysh of what happened. Mohammed became very angry and vowed to kill him once he conquers Mecca, which he was preparing for. When Mohammed conquered Mecca, Ibn Abu Al Sarh was arrested but was saved from the death sentence by Uthman, his brother in breast feeding. Ibn Abu Al Sarh survived and had a successful career under the Umayad dynasty, which speaks volumes of the faith of the Umayads! We do not know which verses were scribed by Ibn Abu Al Sarh, but we know that at least those verses were not accurate! THE MATERIALS The technology necessary for writing was not well developed in Arabia. The scribes used primitive ink and perishable material to accomplish their work. Consequently, by the time Mohammed died, some verses were unreadable or completely missing from the Quran. According to Aysha, Mohammed’s wife, she used to keep the stoning verse under her bed, but it was eaten by a ‘dajen’ (chicken or domestic animal!) INSPECTION Until Mohammed’s death, nobody inspected the work of the scribes, which was left to gather dust until after Mohammed’s death. The moment of truth came about two decades later when Caliph Uthman appointed a committee to start the project of collecting the Quran. Only then the discrepancies in the various writings came to light. Uthman’s solution was to burn all existing copies and keep only the formal five copies which were produced by his committee. Many leading Muslims refused to recognize Uthman’s copies and refused to surrender their own to be destroyed because they believed theirs were the accurate ones. Ibn Massoud, a sahabi whose knowledge of the Quran was renowned and commended by Mohammed, was one of those Muslims who refused to recognize Uthman’s copies and refused to surrender his personal, presumably accurate, collection. ABDULLAH BIN MASUD’S KNOWLEDGE OF QUR’AN Abdullah bin Masud was one of the best reciters, of the Qur’an among the companions of Muhammad and understood it better than them all. He was therefore the most knowledgeable on the Shari’ah. Nothing can illustrate this better than the story of the man who came to Umar Ibn al-Khattab as he was standing on the plain of Arafat and said: ‘I have come, O Amir al-Mumineen, from Kufa where I left a man filling copies of the Qur’aan from memory.’ Umar became very angry and paced up and down beside his camel, fuming. ‘Who is he?’ he asked. ‘Abdullah Ibn Masood,’ replied the man. Umar’s anger evaporated and his composure returned. ‘By Allah, I don’t know of any person left who is more qualified in this matter than he is,’ exclaimed Umar. “One night the Messenger of Allah was having a very learned discussion with Abdullah Ibn Masood. I was with them. When the Prophet left, we left with him also and as we passed through the mosque, there was a man standing in Prayer whom we did not recognise. The Prophet stood and listened to him, then turned to us and said, “Whoever wants to read the Qur’aan as fresh as when it was revealed, then let him read according to the recitation of Abdullah Ibn Masood.” “I said to myself, I should go to Abdullah Ibn Masood straight away and tell him the good news of the Prophet’s ensuring acceptance of his supplications. I went and did so but found that Ahmed had gone before me and conveyed the good news to him already.” In another Hadith, the Prophet said, “Learn the Qur’aan from four people, Abdullah Ibn Masood, Salim Maula Abi Huzaifah, Ubayy Ibn Kaab and Muaz Ibn Jabal.” The Prophet has also said, “Read the Qur’aan in the same manner as Abdullah Ibn Masood teaches.” The most popular and widely read Qiraat is that of Imaam Hafs. He relates from Imaam Aasim Kufi and he in turn relates from Abu Abdur Rahman Abdullah Ibn Habib As-Sulmiyi, who relates from Uthman Ibn Affan, Ali Ibn Talib, Abdullah Ibn Masood, Ubayy Ibn Kaab and Zaid Ibn Thaabit. They all, in turn, relate directly from the Prophet. Abdullah Ibn Masood attained such a knowledge of the Qur’an that he would say, “By Him besides Whom there is no Allah, no verse of the book of Allah has been revealed without my knowing where it was revealed and the circumstances of its revelation. By Allah, if I know there was anyone who knew more of the Book of Allah, I will do whatever is in my power to be with him. Abdullah was not exaggerating in what he said about himself. Once Umar Ibn al-Khattab met a caravan on one of his journeys as caliph. It was pitch dark and the caravan could not be seen properly. Umar ordered someone to hail the caravan. It happened that Abdullah Ibn Masood was in it. Q: “From where do you come?” asked Umar. “From a deep valley,” came the reply from Abdullah Ibn Masood, concealed by the darkness of night. A: “And where are you going?” asked Umar. “To the ancient house,” came the reply, (a Qur’anic expression – al-bayt al-atiq.) “There is a learned person (alim) among them,” said Umar Ibn al-Khattab. He commanded that learned questions be asked of this alim, (Abdullah Ibn Masood): Q: “Which part of the Qur’aan is the greatest?” A: “Allah. There is no Deity except Him, the Living, the Self-subsisting. Neither slumber overtakes Him nor sleep,” replied the stranger with the caravan, quoting the Ayat al-Kursi (the verse of the Throne)” Q: “Which part of the Qur’aan is the most clear on justice?” A: “Allah commands what is just and fair, the feeding of relatives.” Q: “What it the most profound of the Qur’aan?” A: “Whoever does an atoms weight of good shall see it, and whoever does an atom’s weight of evil shall see it.” Q: “Which part of the Qur’aan gives believers the greatest hope?” A: “Say, O my servants who have wasted their resources, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. He is the Forgiving, the Compassionate.” Thereupon Umar asked, “Is Abdullah Ibn Masood among you?” Yes, by Allah, the men in the caravan replied. The Prophet had always desired to make Ibn Masood a leader of men, as it is clear from the following words of the Prophet, “If I was to make anyone a leader over someone without consulting anyone, I would make Ibn Masood a leader.” Abdullah Ibn Masood Introduction Abdullah Ibn Masood was of the tribe of Banu Huzail and was also the sworn ally of Banu Zahra. When he was still a youth, not yet past the age of puberty, he used to roam the mountain trails of Makkah far away from people, tending the flocks of a Quraish chieftain, Uqbah Ibn Muayt. People called him ‘Ibn Umm Abd’, the son of the mother of a slave. His real name was Abdullah and his fathers name was Masood. The youth had heard the news of the Prophet whom had appeared among his people but he did not attach any importance to it both because of his age and because he was usually far away from Makkan society. It was his habit to leave with the flock of Uqbah early in the morning and not return until nightfall. One day while tending the flocks, Abdullah saw two men, middle-aged and of dignified bearing, coming towards him from a distance. They were obviously very thirsty and tired. They came up to him, greeted him and said, ‘Young man, milk one of these sheep for us that we may quench our thirst and recover our strength.’ ‘I cannot,’ replied the young man. ‘The sheep are not mine. I am only responsible for looking after them.’ The two men did not argue with him. In fact, despite their thirst, they were extremely pleased at his honest reply. The two men were the blessed Prophet himself and his companion, Abu Bakr Siddiq . They had gone out on that day to the mountains of Makkah to escape the violent persecution of the Quraish. The young man in turn was impressed with the Prophet and his companion and soon became quite attached to them. Acceptance Of Islam It was not long before Abdullah Ibn Masood became a Muslim and offered to be in the service of the Prophet . The Prophet agreed and from that day, the fortunate Abdullah Ibn Masood gave up tending sheep in exchange for looking after the needs of the blessed Prophet . He was the sixth man to accept Islam. Abdullah Ibn Masood remained closely attached to the Prophet . He would attend to his needs both inside and outside the house. He would accompany him on journeys and expeditions. He would wake him when he slept. He would shield him when he washed. He would carry his staff and his Siwak (toothbrush) and attend to his other personal needs. It was for these reasons that the Sahabah took to calling him Saheb-e-Siwak (bearer of the siwak), Saheb-e-Nalaen (bearer of the slippers), Saheb-e-Mutahara (bearer of the water) and also Saheb-e-Wisadah (bearer of the bedroll). The Prophet’s Appreciation Abdullah Ibn Masood received a unique training in the household of the Prophet . He was under the guidance of the Prophet , he adopted his manner and followed his every trait until it was said of him, ‘He was the closest to the Prophet in character.’ Abdullah was often mistaken as one of the Blessed Household. Abu Musa Ashari says, ‘When we came from Yemen, we thought for some time that Abdullah was a member of the Blessed Household, because Abdullah and his mother were constantly coming and going in the Prophet presence. Furthermore, the Prophet once said to Abdullah , “O Abdullah , you do not need permission to enter my house. You are always welcome.” Abdullah Ibn Masood’s Quraan Abdullah was the best at reciting the Qur’aan among the companions and he understood it better than them all. He was therefore the most knowledgeable on the Shari’ah. Nothing can illustrate this better than the story of the man who came to Umar Ibn al-Khattab as he was standing on the plain of Arafat and said: ‘I have come, O Amir al-Mumineen, from Kufa where I left a man filling copies of the Qur’aan from memory.’ Umar became very angry and paced up and down beside his camel, fuming. ‘Who is he?’ he asked. ‘Abdullah Ibn Masood ,’ replied the man. Umar’s anger subsided and he regained his composure. ‘Woe to you,’ he said to the man. ‘By Allah, I don’t know of any person left who is more qualified in this matter than he is. Let me tell you about this.’ Umar continued: ‘One night the Messenger of Allah was having a conversation with Abu Bakr about the situation of Muslims. I was with them. When the Prophet left, we left with him also and as we passed through the mosque, there was a man standing in Prayer whom we did not recognise. The Prophet stood and listened to him, then turned to us and said, “Whoever wants to read the Qur’aan as fresh as when it was revealed, then let him read according to the recitation of Ibn Umm Abd .” After the Prayer, as Abdullah sat making supplications, the Prophet said, “Ask and it will be given to you. Ask and it will be given to you.” I said to myself, I should go to Abdullah Ibn Masood straight away and tell him the good news of the Prophet’s ensuring acceptance of his supplications. I went and did so but found that Abu Bakr had gone before me and conveyed the good news to him. By Allah, I have never yet beaten Abu Bakr in the doing of any good.’ In another Hadith, the Prophet said, ‘Learn the Qur’aan from four people, Abdullah Ibn Masood, Salim Maula Abi Huzaifah, Ubayy Ibn Kaab and Muaz Ibn Jabal .’ The Prophet has also said, ‘Read the Qur’aan in the same manner as Abdullah Ibn Masood teaches.’ Note: The most popular and widely read Qiraat is that of Imaam Hafs. He relates from Imaam Aasim Kufi and he in turn relates from Abu Abdur Rahman Abdullah Ibn Habib As-Sulmiyi, who relates from Uthman Ibn Affan, Ali Ibn Talib, Abdullah Ibn Masood, Ubayy Ibn Kaab and Zaid Ibn Thaabit . They all, in turn, relate directly from the Prophet . Abdullah Ibn Masood attained such a knowledge of the Qur’aan that he would say, ‘By Him besides Whom there is no Allah, no verse of the book of Allah has been revealed without my knowing where it was revealed and the circumstances of its revelation. By Allah, if I know there was anyone who knew more of the Book of Allah, I will do whatever is in my power to be with him.’ Abdullah was not exaggerating in what he said about himself. Once Umar Ibn al-Khattab met a caravan on one of his journeys as caliph. It was pitch dark and the caravan could not be seen properly. Umar ordered someone to hail the caravan. It happened that Abdullah Ibn Masood was in it. ‘From where do you come?’ asked Umar . ‘From a deep valley,’ came the reply, using the Qur’aanic expression – fajj amiq.‘And where are you going?’ asked Umar .‘ To the ancient house,’ came the reply, using the Qur’aanic expression – al-bayt al-atiq. ‘There is a learned person (alim) among them,’ said Umar and he commanded someone to ask the person, ‘Which part of the Qur’aan is the greatest?’ ‘Allah. There is no Deity except Him, the Living, the Self-subsisting. Neither slumber overtakes Him nor sleep,’ replied the person answering, quoting the Ayat al-Kursi (the verse of the Throne). ‘Which part of the Qur’aan is the most clear on justice?’ ‘Allah commands what it just and fair, the feeding of relatives,’ ‘What it the most comprehensive statement of the Qur’aan?’ ‘Whoever does an atoms weight of good shall see it, and whoever does an atom’s weight of evil shall see it.’ ‘Which part of the Qur’aan gives risk to the greatest hope?’ ‘Say, O my servants who have wasted their resources, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. He is the Forgiving, the Compassionate.’ Thereupon Umar asked, ‘Is Abdullah Ibn Masood among you? ‘Yes, by Allah,’ the men in the caravan replied. The Prophet had always desired to make Ibn Masood a leader of men, as it is clear from the following words of the Prophet , ‘If I was to make anyone a leader over someone without consulting anyone, I would make Ibn Masood a leader.’ Abdullah’s Knowledge Abdullah Ibn Masood would refrain from narrating Hadith in fear of mistakes. However when he did narrate a Hadith, he was very particular and precocious in what he attributed to the Prophet . He would turn pale and quake in fear whenever he accidentally attributed something to the Prophet , even though the Prophet has said, ‘Whatever Ibn Masood narrates to you, believe him.’ Whenever he gave a verdict, he would attribute it to himself, saying that it was his own opinion and that it was from Allah if it was correct and that it was from himself and Satan, if it was incorrect. For this reason, many Fatwahs have been attributed to Abdullah instead of the Prophet . Imaam Nisai writes in his Sunan: ‘A man married a woman, then he passed away before he could consummate his wedding or set a dowry for his wife. When the issue was placed before the Sahabah , they advised them to go to Abdullah . When they came to Abdullah , he tried to avoid them and told them to ask someone else. Finally he relented and said, “The woman will receive Mehr-e-Mithl. If the verdict is correct, it is of Allah. If it is incorrect, then it is of Satan and I. Neither Allah and the Prophet are responsible for it.” A Sahabi by the name of Maakal Ibn Al-Ashjai was also present and he said, “I swear by Allah, you have given the same verdict that the Prophet gave in the favour of Broan Bint Washile Al-Ashjai. Your verdict is in accordance with the Prophet .” On hearing this, Abdullah rejoiced as he had never rejoiced before. The majority of Fatwahs of Iraq and the Hanafi Fiqh are based upon the Fatwahs of Abdullah Ibn Masood His authority in Fiqh was such that the other Sahabah would refuse to give a Fatwah during while he was still alive. They would always refer any seeker to him. Students who wanted to enter his service and gain knowledge from him were always constantly petitioning him. Khatima Ibn Abu Subrah once went to Madinah and prayed for a pious companion. Hurraira was Allah’s reply. Abu Hurraira asked Khatima where he had come from. He replied that he had travelled for two days from Kufa. Abu Hurraira said to him, ‘Is not Saad Ibn Malik , who is Mustajab-ul-Dawat amongst you? Is not Ibn Masood , who was the bearer of the Prophet slippers and ablution water amongst you? Is not Huzaifah , who was privy to the Prophet thoughts amongst you? Is not Amar amongst you, who Allah granted refuge from Shaytaan through the Prophets tongue amongst you? Is not he who knows the two Divine Books (the Qur’aan and the New Testament), Salman Farsi amongst you?’ Coincidentally, all the Sahabah . who Hazrat Abu Hurraira mentioned were in Kufa at that time. Hazrat Saad narrates, ‘Once there were six of us in the service of the Prophet . Besides me were Abdullah Ibn Masood and Bilal Habshee . Some pagans of Makkah came before the Prophet and began to say, “Remove these people first, then we shall talk.” The Prophet was still considering whether sending us out would win over their hearts and make them more receptive to Islam, when the following verse was revealed: ‘Send not away those who call on their Lord, morning and evening, seeking His Face.’ (Q6:52) Saad proudly states, ‘This verse was revealed for us.’ Who can match the status of those who are praised by Allah? The whole point of the worship of Allah is the pleasure of Allah. These six attained the glad tidings of Allah in their lifetime that Allah was pleased with them. As anyone who has taken an in depth, study on the knowledge of the Sahabah will tell you, the knowledge of the Sahabah climaxed in two people, Ali and Abdullah . On one hand, we have Allah, the Prophet and his Sahabah who sing the praises of Abdullah Ibn Masood’s excellence in knowledge and character. On the other hand, we have a sect of narrow-minded and totally unqualified people who, ironically, call themselves Ahl-e-Hadith (the people of the Hadith), better known as the Ghair-Muqalids (the leaderless), saying that Abdullah Ibn Masood was uninformed regarding the Prophet Salaah. Wasn’t Abdullah Ibn Masood the one who the Sahabah would mistake as one of the Blessed Household? Wasn’t he the constant companion of the Prophet for thirty years? But then, according to the Ghair-Muqalids, Ali and Saad were also uninformed of the Prophet Salaah, and that all three of these great Sahabah were in reality, non-entities. Abdullah’s Bravery Abdullah Ibn Masood was the first man to recite aloud the words of the Qur’aan before a gathering of the Quraish. The companions of the Prophet were together one day in Makkah. They were still few in number, weak and oppressed. They said, ‘The Quraish have not yet heard the Qur’aan being recited openly and loudly. Who is the man who could recite it for them?’ ‘I shall recite it for them,’ volunteered Abdullah Ibn Masood . ‘We are afraid for you,’ they said. ‘We only want someone who has a clan who would protect him from their evil.’ ‘Let me,’ Abdullah Ibn Masood insisted, ‘Allah shall protect me and keep me away from their evil.’ He then went out to the mosque until he reached Maqam Ibrahim (a landmark situated a few meters from the Kabah). It was dawn and the Quraish were sitting around the Kabah. Abdullah began to recite Surah Rahman. The Quraish looked at him intently and some of them asked, ‘What is Ibn Umm Abd saying? Damn him! He is reciting some of what Muhammad brought!’ They began to slap his face but he continued reciting. When he concluded his recital, his face was covered with welts and blood. ‘By Allah,’ said Abdullah , ‘the enemies of Allah are more uncomfortable than I am at this moment. If you wish, I shall return tomorrow and do the same.’ ‘You have done enough,’ they said. ‘You have made them hear what they dislike.’ Abdullah’s Immigration Abdullah Ibn Masood did Hijrat three times, twice to Ethiopia and once to Madinah. He participated in every Gazwah. It was he who beheaded Abu Jahl in Badr. It was to him that the Prophet presented Abu Jahl’s sword as a share in the booty. The Caliph Umar sent Abdullah Ibn Masood to Kufa to educate the people and to take charge of the Bait-ul-Maal. When Umar fixed salaries for the Sahabah , he offered Abdullah a salary too. Abdullah refused and said, ‘Why do you try to turn me to the world.’ Abdullah’s Death Abdullah Ibn Masood lived to the time of Caliph Uthman . It was during this era that he retired from his post and returned to Madinah. When he was sick and on his death-bed, Uthman came to visit him and said, ‘What is your ailment?’ ‘My sins.’ ‘And what do you desire?’ ‘The mercy of my Lord.’ ‘Shall I not give you your stipend which you have refused to take for years now?’ ‘I have no need of it.’ ‘Let it be for your daughters after you.’ ‘Do you fear poverty for my children? I have commanded them to read Surah al-Waqiah every night for I have heard the Prophet saying, “Whoever reads Al-Waqiah every night shall not be afflicted by poverty ever.” That night, in either 33 or 34 A.H, Abdullah passed away to the company of his Lord, his tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah and with the recitation of the verses of His Book. PRESERVING THE QUR’AN IN THE MUSLIMS’ CHESTS Some Muslim scholars claim that all of the above is irrelevant because the Quran was preserved in the Muslims’ chests as well. This claim is coupled to a belief that the early Muslims were humans with extra ordinary intelligence. Of course this is completely unfounded and still doesn’t explain the discrepancies between the various collections of the Quran. Mohammed could and should have done more to safeguard the Quran, if he really believed it was Allah’ words and the most important document on earth. He had the resources and the authority, as a leader in Medina, to order a supervised writing and proper collection of the Quran. He should have stamped that authenticated copy (Mohammed had a stamp) and devised a system to take care of it after him. But he didn’t because he was busy fighting wars; over seventy (70) of them in a space of ten years. Besides he didn’t really feel the Quran was that important. He probably found the chaotic situation useful, as it gave him the freedom to contradict the earlier verses without being noticed. Many Muslims believe that two of Uthman’s copies still exist today and they seem to be sure about it. They do so because they believe their scholars who propagate this lie with apparent confidence, which is not unusual for Muslim scholars. Caliph Uthman sent four of his copies to the governors of the newly conquered states and kept one with him in Medina. Those copies were supposed to have been well looked after but there is no trace of them. How can Muslims afford to lose such important divine documents? This is difficult to fathom considering the way today’s Muslims treat the Quran. Muslims are usually reluctant to dispose of their old copies of the Quran because it is not a straight forward matter; it should be burnt and not mixed with the general waste. Until the discovery of the Quran of Sanaa, the oldest two copies of the Quran were thought to be the ones in Tashkent and Istanbul. Both copies are partial, not the full Quran and both were dated to some two hundred years after Mohammed’s death. Therefore they are not Uthman’s copies. In the 1970s, manuscripts of the Quran were found in Sanaa, Yemen, and were dated to about hundred years after Mohammed’s death. They are believed to be the oldest copy of the Quran. The Yemini authorities stopped the German researchers from completing their work once they noticed the differences between the manuscripts and the existing Quran. It is also interesting to note that independent researchers have no access to do proper studies on the copies in Tahkent and Istanbul. ARE THEY HIDING SOMETHING? MUSLIMS SAY: QUR’AN HAS NO EARTHLY SOURCES According to the Islamic religion, the teachings of Muhammad and the Quran came STRAIGHT FROM HEAVEN and cannot have any earthly source. Yet Western scholarship easily shows that ALL of Islam is based on the customs and fables of pre-Islamic Arabia and misinterpretation of the Bible by Muhammad. Even the word, “Islam” wasn’t new with Muhammad. It originally meant, Defiance of death, heroism, to die in battle. Today, it is supposed to mean Submission. Now given all the terrorism from the Middle East and fighting between the Shiite and Sunnis which definition better fits Islam? “to die in battle” or “submission”? The Quran commands Muslims to convert everyone to Islam or else kill them. “Islam” existed before Muhammad came on the scene so there is an earthly source. Also, the Quran is not written in a heavenly language, it is written the Quraish dialect (Hadith vol. 6, no. 507) which was Muhammad’s tribe. On top of that it is easily translated. It didn’t fall out of heaven as they claim. Neither is it non-translatable as Muslims are taught that it is. Let’s move on. Even the word “Allah” was not invented by Muhammad. It was already well known. Allah is a purely Arabic word al = the ilah = god. It is not taken from the Hebrew or Greek word for God. It is not even the Arabic word for God. It is the name of a peculiar deity–Allah, the moon god. The Encyclopedia of Islam says: The Arabs, BEFORE the time of Mohammed, accepted and worshipped, after a fashion, a supreme god called allah. (ed. Houtsma) Allah was known to the PRE-Islamic Arabs; he was one of the Meccan deities. (ed. Gibb) Ilah…appears in PRE-Islamic poetry…By frequency of usage, al-ilah was contracted to allah, frequently attested to in pre-Islamic poetry. (ed. Lewis) “Allah” does not mean “God” in Arabic. The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics says this: The origin of this (Allah) goes back to PRE-Muslim times. Allah is NOT a common name meaning “God” (or a “god”), and the Muslim must use another word or form if he wishes to indicate any other than his own peculiar deity. Allah was a pre-existing god. He was well known to Muhammad’s Quraysh tribe. Scholars quickly point out that Allah was one of the names used for the MOON god who was married to the sun goddess. Together they produced three goddesses who were called “the daughters of Allah. Their names were Al-Lat, Al-Uzza and Manat. These were considered high gods–at the top of the plethora of Arabian deities. Muhammad’s father’s literal Arabic name was Abd-Allah. His uncle’s name was Obied-Allah. His family was devoted to the moon god for at least two generations before Muhammad. The Arabian pagans prayed towards Mecca because that is where their idols/gods were sitting. Since Allah was one of the idols in the Kabah it only made sense to turn toward their god and pray. Praying toward Mecca continues to this day. Allah is an Arabian idol that sat in the Kabaa with a bunch of other idols. The pagans prayed in the direction of Mecca because that is where their gods (including Allah) resided heaped on top of each other in the Kabaa. This is not news to educated Muslims, they generally understand this point. Allah is the moon god, that’s probably why there is the crescent moon and star on the Muslim flag. In conclusion, the Quran took Allah from the existing Arabic paganism and superimposed it on top of the God of the Jews and Christians. A dumb idol that can neither hear, nor speak, nor think. “Well,” you might say, “what about Arabic Bibles that say, ‘Allah’ for the word God?” “Well,” I would say, “the missionaries got intimidated by Arabs to use Allah instead of the Arabic word of God.” I also might say, “Many missionaries are turning to dynamic equivalency which means that they do not translate word for word but rather look for similar ideas to convey meaning. ABOUT MUHAMMAD Muhammad is the “prophet” of Islam. At age 40 he claimed that he was a prophet and apostle (he took these terms from the Bible. They had no history in Arabian religion). The Quran gives four conflicting accounts of how he was called to be a prophet- (1) In Qur’an, Suras 53:2-18 and 81:19-24, Allah personally appeared. (2) In Qur’an, Suras 16:102 and 26:192-194 he was called by “the Holy Spirit”. (3) In Qur’an, Sura 15:8 the angels announced his prophetic ministry; and (4) The angel Gabriel told him of his ministry and hands him the Quran. Who were Muhammad’s first supposed converts? Jinies! Yes, Muhammad supposedly preached to and converted Jinnies in Qur’an, Suras 46:29-35; 72:1-28. How convenient that there was no one around to confirm his prophethood MUHAMMAD WAS A VIOLENT THUG Muhammad killed and plundered many people. During the Nakhla Raid, he sent some of his thugs to loot a caravan killing one man and enslaving others. This was his first battle. Do you wonder why so many terrorists are Muslims? The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree. The “prophet” Muhammad did not even foresee his own death in 632 A.D. As a result, he left no instructions for his successors. Soon there were warring sects in Islam such as the Shiites and Sunnis who fight to this day. So not only are Muslims fighting infidels like Christians and Jews, they are fighting each other! WHY MUSLIMS ARE SO VIOLENT: Sure, here in the west, they’ve tried to “Christianize” their beliefs and many of us gullibly believe that Muslims are a peace-loving people–but historically, Muhammad, terrorism, and Jihad tell a different story. It is written in their law that Muslims must kill those that don’t convert. Their leader, Muhammad made his fortune plundering and killing. Don’t think it happens today? Look at Algeria. Look at worldwide terrorism. Look at Khadafy, the Clerics of Iran, Sadaam Hussein, Arafat’s Palestine, etc. The word “assassin” came from a secret sect of Muslims who killed folks while supposedly high on hashish. Violence and Islam are good friends. Why does it seem like they are always fighting and terrorizing people? Why is Islam so militant and overbearing? If we make a simple analysis of the foundation of this religion, the answers will become very apparent. It all begins and ends with a man named Mohammad. The Hadiths (other “holy” books of Islam) says that Jihad, or holy war, is the second best th

            CHASITY IN THE TEACHINGS OF PROPHET MOHAMMED

            ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF ALLAH.

            ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED THE RAPE OF FEMALE CAPTIVES:

            RAPE JIHAD:
            Sahih Muslim Book 08. N 3371Marriage
            Chapter: Al-Azl (incomplete sexual intercourse): Coitus Interruptus.
            Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women;
            and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.
            So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him?
            So we asked Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.
            REMEMBER:
            ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF GOD
            ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED RAPE
            Al-’Azl
            Al-’Azl, (العزل) also known as coitus interruptus, is the practice of having sexual intercourse with a woman but withdrawing the penis before ejaculation. Apparently al-’Azl with female captives and slaves was a pretty important topic for Muhammad and his companions as evidenced by the abundance of Hadith material on the subject.
            Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle .

            Sahih Bukhari 7:62:135
            Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interrupt us while the Quran was being revealed. Jabir added: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed.
            Sahih Bukhari 7:62:136

            When RAPING your captive, it’s better if you do not pull out at the end

            THIS IS ISLAM
            Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah’s Apostle he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus(RAPE WITHOUT PREGNANCY)?” The Prophet said, “Do you really do that? It is better for you not to PULL OUT. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.”
            Sahih Bukhari 3:34:432
            Abu Said said, “We went with Allah’s Apostle, in the Ghazwa of Barli Al-Mustaliq and we captured some of the ‘Arabs as captives, and the long separation from our wives was pressing us hard and we wanted to practice coitus interruptus. We asked Allah’s Apostle (whether it was permissible). He said, “It is better for you not to do so. No soul, (that which Allah has) destined to exist, up to the Day of Resurrection, but will definitely come, into existence.”

            Sahih Bukhari 3:46:718

            We went out with Allah’s Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. ………
            We asked (him) about it and he said, “It is better for you not to PULL OUT, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist.”

            Sahih Bukhari 5:59:459

            Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured females and wanted sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they asked the Prophet about coitus interruptus. He said, “It is better that you leave it in, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection.” Qaza’a said, “I heard Abu Sa’id saying that the Prophet said, ‘No soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it.”

            Sahih Bukhari 9:93:506
            Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: We got female captives in the war booty and we used to do coitus interruptus with them. So we asked Allah’s Apostle about it and he said, “Do you really do that?” repeating the question thrice, “There is no soul that is destined to exist but will come into existence, till the Day of Resurrection.”

            Sahih Bukhari 7:62:137

            WHY DO SHIITES LOVE ABU –LU’LU’A WHO KILLED UMAR, DESPITE THAT HE WAS A ZOROASTRIAN & NOT A MUSLIM?

            ( Section : Misdeed )

            QUESTION:

            May peace and the mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you.

            I am your sister Al-Jazi from Kuwait. I’m a Sunni and I respect your sect a lot because I believe that Muslims are equal and that they agree on the Oneness of Allah (Glorious and Exalted is He) as well as on the Prophethood of Mohammad (may peace and blessings be upon him). However, as you know, there has been a lot of talk about your sect and our sect alike. There’s a question on my mind that I didn’t want to ask to my Shiite friends. All I did was to ask for your e-mail address so that I may send this question to Sheikh Yasser al-Habib. I’m a person who seeks knowledge and I hope that this knowledge will benefit me. I hope you can answer to this question of mine.

            Why do Shiites love the Zoroastrian Abu-Lu’lu’a? And why are they pleased with him? Despite the fact that he wasn’t a Muslim, but was rather a Zoroastrian?

            Thank you. I pray that my question won’t be too much for you, and I hope you can give me convincing and reliable evidences. I will wait for your reply to my question, and I hope that I can get a reply as soon as possible.

            May Allah protect you.

            Al-Jazi

            ANSWER:

            In His Name, Exalted is He. May peace and the mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you.

            Abu-Lu’lu’a al-Nahawandi (may Allah’s satisfaction be upon him) WAS NOT A ZOROASTRIAN, BUT HE WAS IN FACT A BELIEVING MUSLIM, and the accusations made against him by Omar’s followers, claiming that he was a Zoroastrian, are nothing but slanders and lies! It is sufficient to prove his belief in Islam by merely considering the fact that when he stabbed the accursed Omar, he was in the Holy Mosque of the Prophet. Some Bakri narrations even mention that he was behind him between the rows of those who performed the prayers. Let the Bakris explain to us how a disbelieving Zoroastrian was allowed entry by the Muslims to the mosque in order to pray inside!? And how could he previously enter and exit the mosque before the incident took place, such as when he told Omar to judge Al-Mughira, son of Shu’ba, while inside the mosque?!

            This means that he was a Muslim. If he wasn’t, then he wouldn’t have been allowed entry by the Muslims to the mosque. Why did they even allow him to remain in the Holy City of Medina? The Prophet (may Allah’s blessings be upon him and his family) forbade the polytheists to remain in Medina as well as in Mecca. The fact that he remained in Medina during all those years proves that he was a Muslim.

            Moreover, the Bakri scholars have acknowledged the fact that his daughter (Lu’lu’a) was a Muslim girl who believed in Islam, as mentioned by Al-San’ani in his Musannaf, saying: «Then he (Ubaydullah, son of Omar) came to the daughter of Abi-Lu’lu’a, a little girl who believed in Islam, and he killed her. During that day, the city of Medina darkened upon its people.» [1]

            Hence we know that Abu-Lu’lu’a was a Muslim. The fact that little daughter believed in Islam is evident to that her father had teached her about Islam, because – normally – if small children believe in Islam, they do so by following their fathers! Also, the rest of Medina’s population – including those whom the Bakris label as ‘Sahaba’ – treated this girl as a Muslim girl, and the sadness they expressed for Ubaydullah, son of Umar’s (may Allah’s curse be upon them both) unjust killing of her to such a degree that Medina darkened upon its people…all this is evident to that her father was a Muslim.

            If he was a disbeliever, however, then none would have regarded his daughter as a Muslim, nor would anyone have grieved over her death, nor would anyone have demanded Ubaydullah, son of Omar, to be killed in revenge for his unjust act, because a Muslim shall not be killed if he kills a disbeliever. Additionally, the historians have confirmed that several of those whom the Bakris refer to as ‘Sahaba’ demanded Uthman, son of Affan, to kill Ubaydullah, son of Omar, due to his unjust killing of Abu-Lu’lu’a’s daughter. This confirms the fact that she was a Muslim, and hence her father is also a Muslim. [2]

            It has been narrated that Ahlul-Bayt (may peace be upon them) asked Allah to have mercy upon Abi-Lu’lu’a (may Allah’s satisfaction be upon him) as well as they’ve given him glad tidings for Paradise, because he killed Omar (may the curse of Allah be upon him) in revenge for the daughter of Allah’s Messenger, Fatima al-Zahra (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon her), who was killed by Omar when he along with other scoundrels attacked her and broke her rib and made her lose her unborn son, Al-Muhassin (may peace be upon him), and hit her with the lash, and kicked her, and slapped her, and stabbed the side of her body with the sheath of his sword, in a disgusting and monstrous attack with the purpose of forcing her and her husband to pledge allegiance to his companion, Abu Bakr (may Allah’s curse be upon him)!

            For this reason we respect Aba-Lu’lu’a Fairouz al-Nahawandi (may Allah’s satisfaction be upon him), who was a hero of Islam.

            May Allah guide us and you alike. Peace.

            AISHA:

            THE MOTHER OF BELIEVERS MURDERED & THROWN DOWN A WELL

            What is the proof that Mu’awiya killed Aisha and her brother Abdul-Rahman as well as Saad bin Abi-Waqqas?

            ( Section : Misdeed )

            QUESTION:

            May peace and the mercy of Allah be upon you.

            Eminent Sheikh Yasser al-Habib (may Allah protect him).

            We have a couple of questions, most of them are related to issues concerning historical incidents and important historical figures.

            What are the historical evidences we can rely upon to confirm that Mu’awiya killed Aisha, and her brother, and Abu Bakr, and Saad, son of Abi-Waqqas?

            Pray for us. Thank you in advance.

            ANSWER:

            In His Name, splendid be the praise of Him. May peace and the mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you.

            May Allah increase our rewards and your rewards in the remembrance of the tragedy of the martyr Hussain, his household and companions (may Allah’s blessings be upon them). May Allah make us and you among those who demand their revenge along with our Leader, the Master of the Command (may Allah’s blessings be upon him, and may Allah hasten his noble reappearance).
            In a previous reply we discussed how the relationship between Aisha and Mu’awiya (may the curse of Allah be upon them both) was at unrest during its last days, as well as the relationship between Mu’awiya and Aisha’s brother, Abdul-Rahman. The cause of this unrest was Mu’awiya’s desire to appoint his son, Yazeed (may Allah curse him), as his successor, which was disliked by Aisha and Abdul-Rahman and hence they opposed him. This strengthens the possibility that Mu’awiya ordered the execution of them so that he may pass the leadership to his son.

            Among those who stated that Mu’awiya killed Aisha as well as killed several others; was Al-A’mash (i.e. Sulayman, son of Mahran), a reliable and trustworthy person according to us and to the Bakris alike. Al-Nibati narrates the following of him: «When he (Mu’awiya) entered Kufa, he said: “I did not kill you in order to make you perform prayer and fasting, because I know you were performing this! Rather I killed you so that I may rule over you!” Upon then, Al-A’mash said: “Have you seen a man with less modesty than him? He has killed seventy thousand people, among them are Ammar, and Khuzayma, and Hijr, and Amr, son of al-Hamaq, and Mohammad, son of Abi-Bakr, and Aws, and the son of Sawhan, and the son of Al-Tayyehan, and Aisha, and the son of Hassan, and then he says this!?”» [1]

            Some might criticize the reliability of this narration for the fact that Al-A’mash wasn’t alive during Mu’awiya’s era, and that he was born the same year in which Abi-Abdillah al-Hussain (may Allah’s blessings be upon him) was martyred. However, this criticism is rejected, because his purpose in this narration wasn’t to testify his witnessing of the incidents, but rather he only meant to mention historical incidents, and hence this narration of his was only to inform others of Mu’awiya’s acts.

            As for the question concerning how Mu’awiya actualled performed the killing; Al-Nibati narrates of the author of Al-Masalit that Mu’awiya: «…He was sitting on the pulpit and commanding people to pay allegiance to Yazeed. Upon then Aisha said: “Did the two Sheikhs (here she meant Abu Bakr and Omar) call for the pledge of allegiance for their sons?” He said: “No.” She said: “Then who do you follow (as your example)?” Then he became embarrased, so he prepared a hole for her in which she fell and died.»

            According to the narration of the son of Abil-‘Aass, he said: «”Which spot do you wish to be buried in?” She said: “I had decided to be buried next to the Messenger of Allah, however I invented new things (to the religion) after him, so bury me in Al-Baqee.” It is also reported that Mu’awiya used to threaten people to make them pay their allegiance to Yazeed. This news reached Aisha, so she entered upon him after her two uncles while riding a donkey, and it urinated and laid it droppings on his carpet. Then he said: “I can not stand the words of this obscene woman!” Then he arranged for her end. Abdullah, son of Zubayr, used to mock him with the following words:

            “The donkey went with the mother of Amr,
            She didn’t return, nor did the donkey return!”» [2]

            It was done in the 58th year of the noble Hijrah. Sheikh al-Nemazi says: «In year 58, Mu’awiya toppled Aisha into the well.» [3]

            As for her brother, Abdul-Rahman, his death was due to unknown circumstances in a place called “Al-Habashi”, and it took place after he left Medina for Mecca in response to Marwan, son of Hakam, who called him to pay allegiance to Yazeed. It is probable that Mu’awiya sent someone to kill him and bury him alive. The first one who doubted that he died a natural death; was his sister Aisha. Al-Hakem and Ibn Asakir both narrated that she saw a woman go into prostration and then die. Upon then she said: «”In this woman, I find a lesson for Abdul-Rahman, son of Abi-Bakr; he rested in one of his resting places, and when they went to wake him up, they found him dead.” Then Aisha suspected that this was done to him out of evil, and that it was done quickly (to finish him off), and that he was buried alive. She saw that he was a lesson for her. Then, whatever was in her of these suspections went away.» [4]

            However, even though doubt was removed from Aisha – or at least that’s what the narration says – doubt is not removed from us, because we have already been informed of Mu’awiya’s character; a tyrant specialized in political assassinations!

            As for Saad, son of Abi-Waqqas, the Bakri sources state that Mu’awiya assassinated him with poison just like how Imam Hassan (may Allah’s blessings be upon him) was killed. Among these narrations is the following that is narrated by Al-Maqdasi on the authority of Sha’ba, who said: «Saad and Hassan, son of Ali, died on one (and the same) day. He said: It is reported that Mu’awiya poisoned them.» [5] The following is narrated by Abul-Faraj al-Esfahani: «Mu’awiya poisoned him (i.e. Imam Hassan) when he wanted to make Yazeed the successor after him, and he poisoned Saad, son of Abi-Waqqas, as well. They both died on days close to each other.» [6]

            May Allah grant you and us knowledge and understanding. Peace. The 5th of the month of Muharram al-Haram, year 1429.

            ATTACKING THE HOUSE OF FATIMAH (sa)
            بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

            A Sunni Brother mentioned that the Caliphate of Abu Bakr is the Consensus of scholars (Ijma’). It is incumbent upon Muslims to accept the Ijma’. First I would like to point out that we also believe that Ijma’a is binding. But, my brother, how can Sunni scholars make Ijma’a on something that the Prophet and some of his companions opposed it?
            This opposition is a clear evidence to the fact that there is no Ijma’a in that very matter. As for the Prophet (S), I mentioned the authentic Sunni traditions in the previous articles where he gave Imam ‘Ali the position that Haroon had to Moses. That position is explained in Qur’an whose verses I mentioned. The verses show that:
            1-Allah is the one who appoints the Caliph.
            2-The verse also uses the word “Ukhlofni” which is exactly the verb form of Khalif.
            Moreover, I reproduced the historical reports documented by the Sunni scholars concerning the fact that the Messenger of Allah unequivocally announced Imam ‘Ali (as) as his successor in his first open sermon. I also mentioned the authentic and frequent tradition of Ghadir Khum where the Prophet declared the leadership of Imam ‘Ali (as) officially.
            Now, my brother, how can Ijma’a exist on this important issue when the Messenger of Allah opposes it? This is enough for us to close the issue of Ijma’a on this subject. However let us, now, go a little further: Even the companions did not all agree that all these four individuals are the legitimate successors of the Prophet (S).
            Muslims agree that the caliphate of Abu Bakr came through election by a limited number of people and was a surprise for all other companions. By limited, I mean, a majority of the prominent companions of prophet had no knowledge of this election. ‘Ali, Ibn Abbas, Uthman, Talha, Zubair, Sa’d Ibn Abi Waqqas, Salman al- Farsi, Abu Dharr, Ammar Ibn Yasir, Miqdad, Abdurrahman Ibn Owf were among those who were not consulted or even informed of. Even Umar confessed to the fact that the election of Abu Bakr was without consultation of Muslims.
            (See sahih al-Bukhari, Arabic-English, v8, Tradition #817)
            My dear brother, we can not close our eyes to the undeniable facts documented even by the Sunni scholars, and yet claim to have Ijma’a. After the demise of the Prophet (S), those who heed what the Messenger of Allah ordered them such as Ammar Ibn Yasir, Abu-Dhar al-Ghafari, Miqdad, Salman al-Farsi, Ibn Abbas, and others such as al-Abbas, Utbah Ibn Abi Lahab, Bara Ibn Azib, Ubay Ibn Ka’b, Sa’d Ibn Abi Waqqas … etc., all gathered in the house of Fatimah (sa). Even Talha and al-Zubair were loyal to Imam ‘Ali at the beginning and joint the others in the house of Fatimah (sa).
            They assembled in the house of Fatimah as a place of refuge since they were opposing the majority of people. According to the authentic traditions in Sahih al-Bukhari, Umar confessed that the Imam ‘Ali (as) and his followers opposed Abu Bakr.
            Al-Bukhari narrated:
            Umar said: “And no doubt after the death of the Prophet we were informed that the Ansar disagreed with us and gathered in the shed of Bani Sa’da. ‘‘Ali and Zubair and whoever was with them, opposed us, while the emigrants gathered with Abu Bakr.”
            Sunni Reference: Sahih al-Bukhari, Arabic-English, v8, Tradition #817
            Other Sunni traditionalists narrated that on the day of Saqifah:
            Umar said: “‘Ali Ibn Abi Talib, Zubair Ibn Awwam and those who were with them separated from us (and gathered) in the house of Fatimah, daughter of the messenger of Allah.”
            Sunni References:
            – Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v1, p55
            – Sirah al-Nabawiyyah, by Ibn Hisham, v4, p309
            – History of Tabari (Arabic), v1, p1822
            – History of Tabari, English version, v9, p192
            Also: demanded confirmation of the oath, but ‘Ali and al-Zubair stayed away. Al-Zubair drew his sword (from the scabbard), saying,
            “I will not put it back until the oath of allegiance is rendered to ‘Ali.”
            When this news reached Abu Bakr and Umar, the latter said,
            “Hit him with a stone and seize the sword.”
            It is stated that Umar rushed (to the door of the House of Fatimah) and brought them forcibly while telling them that they must give their oath of allegiance willingly or unwillingly.
            Sunni reference: History of al-Tabari, English version, v9, pp 188-189
            Dear brother, let’s just think a little!
            What kind of election was that?!
            Election implies choice and freedom, and that every Muslim has the right to elect the nominee. Whoever refuses to elect him does not oppose God or His Messenger because neither God nor His Messenger appointed the nominated person by people.
            Election, by its nature, does not compel any Muslim to elect a specific nominee. Otherwise, the election would be coercion. This means that the election would lose its own nature and it would be a dictatorial operation. It is well known that the Prophet said:
            “There is no validity for any allegiance given by force.”
            Now let us see what Umar did on those days. Sunni historians reported that:
            When Umar came to the door of the house of Fatimah, he said:
            “By Allah, I shall burn down (the house) over you unless you come out and give the oath of allegiance (to Abu Bakr).”

            – al-Imamah wal-Siyasah, by Ibn Qutaybah, v1, pp 19-20
            Also:
            Umar Ibn al-Khattab came to the house of ‘Ali. Talha and Zubair and some of the immigrants were also in the house. Umar cried out:
            “By God, either you come out to render the oath of allegiance, or I will set the house on fire.”
            al-Zubair came out with his sword drawn. As he stumbled (upon something), the sword fell from his hand so they jumped over him and seized him.”
            Sunni Reference: History of Tabari, English version, v9, pp 186-187
            In the footnotes of the same page (p187) in the English version of the History of al-Tabari the translator has commented:
            Although the timing is not clear, it seems that ‘Ali and his group came to know about Saqifa after what had happened there. At this point, his supporters gathered in Fatimah’s house. Abu Bakr and Umar, fully aware of ‘Ali’s claims and fearing a serious threat from his supporters, summoned him to the mosque to swear the oath of allegiance. ‘Ali refused, and so the house was surrounded by an armed band led by Abu Bakr and Umar, who threatened to set it on fire if ‘Ali and his supporters refused to come out and swear allegiance to Abu Bakr. The scene grew violent and Fatimah was furious. (See Ansab Ashraf, by al-Baladhuri in his , v1, pp 582-586; Tarikh Ya’qubi, v2, p116; al-Imamah wal-Siyasah, by Ibn Qutaybah, v1, pp 19-20).
            Abu Bakr said on the authority of an authentic report that, after the demise of the holy Prophet when the people had paid fealty to him, ‘Ali and Zubair used to go to Fatimah al-Zahra (sa), daughter of the Prophet, for consultation. When this fact was known to Umar, he went to Fatimah and said:
            “O’ daughter of the Prophet! I didn’t love anyone as much as I loved your father, nor anyone after him is more loving to me as you are. But I swear by Allah that if these people assemble here with you, then this love of mine would not prevent me from setting your house on fire.”

            – Iqd al-Farid, by Ibn Abd Rabbah al-Malik, v2, chapter of Saqifah
            Also it is reported that:
            Umar said to Fatimah (who was behind the door of her house):
            “I know that the Prophet of God did not love any one more than you, but this will not stop me to carry out my decision. If these people stay in your house, I will burn the door in front of you.”
            Sunni reference: Kanz al-Ummal, v3, p140
            In fact Shibli Numani himself testifies the above event in the following words:
            “From Umar’s irritable and peevish temperament such an action on his part was not improbable.”
            Sunni reference: al-Faruq, by Shibli Numani, p44
            It is also reported that:
            Abu Bakr said (on his death bed):
            “I wish I had not searched for Fatimah’s house, and had not sent men to harass her, though it would have caused a war if her house would have continued to be used as a shelter.”
            Sunni references:
            – History of Ya’qubi, v2, pp 115-116
            – Ansab Ashraf, by al-Baladhuri, v1, pp 582,586
            The historian named the following people among those who attacked the house of Fatimah to disperse people who sheltered there:
            – Umar Ibn al-Khattab
            – Khalid Ibn Walid
            – Abdurrahman Ibn Ouf
            – Thabit Ibn Shammas
            – Ziad Ibn Labid
            – Muhammad Ibn Maslamah
            – Salamah Ibn Salem Ibn Waqash
            – Salamah Ibn Aslam
            – Usaid Ibn Hozair
            – Zaid Ibn Thabit
            The revered Sunni scholar, Abu Muhammad Abdullah Ibn Muslim Ibn Qutaybah Daynuri in his history of Caliphs known as “al-Imamah wa al- Siyasah”reported:
            Umar asked for wood, and told those people inside the house:
            “I swear by Allah who has my soul in his hand, that if you do not come out, I will burn the house.”
            Someone told Umar that Fatimah was inside the house.
            Umar said:
            “So what! It doesn’t matter to me who is in the house.”
            Sunni reference: al-Imamah wa al-Siyasah by Ibn Qutaybah, v1, pp 3,19-20
            Another Sunni historian, al-Baladhuri, reported that:
            Abu Bakr asked ‘Ali to support him, but ‘Ali refused, then Umar went toward the ‘Ali’s house with a burning torch. At the door he met Fatimah who said to him:
            “Do you intend to burn the door of my house?”
            Umar said:
            “Yes, because this act will strengthen the faith brought to us by your father.”
            Sunni reference: al-Ansab Ashraf, by al-Baladhuri, v1, pp 582,586
            Also Jouhari in his book said:
            “Umar and a few Muslims went to the house of Fatimah to burn it down and to burn those who were in opposition.”
            Ibn Shahna said the same statement adding
            “to burn the house and inhabitants”.
            Furthermore, it is reported that:
            ‘Ali and Abbas were sitting inside the house of Fatimah, Abu Bakr told Umar:
            “Go and bring them; if they refuse, kill them.”
            Umar brought fire to burn the house. Fatimah came near the door and said:
            “O son of Khattab, have you come to burn our house on me and my children?”
            Umar replied:
            “Yes I will, by Allah, until they come out and pay allegiance to the Prophet’s Caliph.”
            Sunni reference:
            – Iqd al-Fareed, by Ibn Abd Rabb, Part 3, Pg. 63
            – al-Ghurar, by Ibn Khazaben, related from Zayd Ibn Aslam
            Everybody came out of the house except Imam ‘Ali (as), who said:
            “I have sworn to remain home until I collect the Qur’an.”
            Umar refused but Lady Fatimah’s remonstration caused him to return. He instigated Abu Bakr to pursue the matter, and he send Qunfuz (his slave) several times but received a negative reply each time.
            Ultimately, Umar went with a group of people to the Fatimah’s house. When she heard their voice, she cried loudly;
            “O father, O Messenger of Allah, how are Umar Ibn al-Khattab and Abu Bakr Ibn Abi Quhafah treating us after you and how do they meet us.”
            The Sunni scholars, Ahmad Ibn Abdul Aziz al-Jawhari in his book ‘Saqifah’, Abu Waleed Muhibbuddin Muhammad al-Shahnah al-Hanafi in his book ‘Rawdhat al-Manadhir Fi Akhbaar al-Awayil wal-Aawaakhir’, Ibn Abil Hadid in his book ‘Sharh al-Nahj’, and others have reported the events to the same effect.
            Also refer to the esteemed Sunni historian Abul Hasan, ‘Ali Ibn al-Husayn al-Mas’udi who in his book ‘Isbaat al-Wasiyyah’ describes the events in detail and reports that:
            “They surrounded ‘Ali (as) and burned the door of his house and pulled him out against his will and pressed the leader of all women (Hadhrat Fatimah (sa)) between the door and the wall killing Mohsin (the male-child she was carrying in her womb for six months).”
            Salahuddin Khalil al-Safadi another Sunni scholar in his book ‘Waafi al- Wafiyyaat’ under the letter ‘A’ while recording the view of Ibrahim Ibn Sayyar Ibn Hani al-Basri, well-known as Nidhaam quotes him to have said:
            “On the day of ‘Bay’aat’ (paying allegiance), Umar hit Fatimah (sa) on the stomach such that child in her womb died.”
            Why do you think an 18 year old young lady was forced to walk with the help of a walking-stick? Unbelievable acts of cruelty and oppression had led Hadhrat Fatimah al-Zahra (sa) to lament:
            “Such calamities have visited me that had they descended on the day it would have darkened it.”
            She fell into bed till she was martyred as a result of these calamities and injuries while she was just eighteen years old!
            During her last days, when Abu Bakr and Umar sought the mediation of Imam ‘Ali (as) to visit the ailing Hadhrat Fatimah (sa), as quoted by Ibn Qutaybah, she turned her face to the wall when they greeted her and in response to their plea for appeasement reminded them of the prophetic declaration that one who displeases Fatimah (sa) has displeased the Prophet and finally said:
            “I take Allah and the angels to be my witness that you have not pleased me; on the other hand, you have angered me. When I shall meet the Prophet (S) I will complain about you two.”
            (al-Imamah wa al-Siyasah, by Ibn Qutaybah, v1, p14).
            For the same reason, she willed that those who have hurt her should not participate in her funeral rites and that she be buried at night. al- Bukhari in his Sahih attests to this fact that Imam ‘Ali (as) complied with the will of Lady Fatimah (sa). al-Bukhari narrated on the authority of Aisha that:
            … Fatimah became angry with Abu Bakr and kept away from him, and did not talk to him till she died. She remained alive for six months after the death of the Prophet. When she died, her husband ‘‘Ali, buried her at night without informing Abu Bakr and he said the funeral prayer by himself.

            Howsoever they tried, people failed to locate her grave. It was known only to a handful of Imam ‘Ali (as)’s family members. And to this date, the grave of the daughter of prophet is unknown which is another sign of her unhappiness from some of the companions.
            The Opinion of the Prophet About Who Hurts Fatimah
            The Messenger of Allah (S) had frequently said:
            “Fatimah is a part of me. Whoever makes her angry makes me angry.”
            Sunni references:
            – Sahih al-Bukhari, Arabic-English, v5, Traditions #61 and #111
            – Sahih Muslim, section of virtues of Fatimah, v4, pp 1904-5
            According to al-Bukhari and Muslim, the Messenger of Allah has testified that Fatimah is the best of the ladies of the worlds:
            Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith: 4.819
            Narrated ‘Aisha:
            The Messenger of Allah said to Fatimah (who was crying at her father’s deathbed):
            “Are you not satisfied that you are the chief of all the ladies of Paradise or the chief of all the believing women?”
            أما ترضين أن تكوني سيدة نساء أهل الجنة أو نساء المؤمنين؟

            Furthermore, Ibn Abbas (ra) narrated:
            The Messenger of Allah (S) said: Four women are the mistress of the worlds: Mary, Asiya (the wife of Pharaoh), Khadija, and Fatimah. And the most excellent one among them in the world is Fatimah.”
            Sunni references: Ibn Asakir, as quoted in Tafsir al-Durr al-Manthoor
            Allah, Exalted He is, said in Qur’an:
            “(O Prophet) tell (people) I don’t ask you any wage except to love my family.”(Qur’an 42:23).
            He also said:
            “(O Prophet) tell (people) whatever I asked as wage (in return or my prophethood) is in the benefit of you (people).”(Qur’an 34:47).
            The above two verses of Holy Qur’an explicitly indicate that the Prophet, with the order of Allah, has asked people to love his family as a command. Moreover loving them is in our benefit since “true love” requires to follow and obey the purified members of his family who carry his true Sunnah. It is unfortunate that those who claimed to be his sincere companions inflicted such horrible pains to his family while a week had not been passed since the death of the Prophet (S). Is this the love, Allah ordered for the family of prophet?!

            WHERE IS HER GRAVE?

            The Muslims have been deeply pained.
            Their beloved prophet has passed away.
            And especially for his kith and kin,
            it is one of their lives saddest day.
            A lady who happens to be his daughter,
            above all is the most afflicted one.
            She was the nearest to her father.
            Alas her troubles have just begun.
            What in the Prophet’s eyes was her status,
            unfortunately the people shall forget.
            She should be respected by all of us.
            But a harsh treatment, she’ll be met.
            Everyone had heard her father say,
            “My daughter is a part of me”.
            For her safety he would often pray;
            Not wanting her to bear any agony.
            But his words fell on deaf ears.
            His followers were lead astray.
            So, were realized those worst fears,
            and his tidings were disobeyed.
            Each forthcoming day brings her sorrow
            and only a few more months she’ll live.
            Each night she worries about her woes.
            Her tormentors, she may not forgive.
            In her last days, she is seen weeping.
            Awake all night, she seldom sleeps.
            Of her troubles, she keeps thinking.
            The wounds in her heart are so deep.
            The thoughts of her father alone
            cause tears from her eyes to flow
            and what will happen to her children?
            What fate do they have in stow?
            “Be kind to them and take care”,
            she wills about her poor children,
            because she’ll be no longer near
            and they’ll soon be orphans.
            As she spends the time crying,
            her neighbours come and complain.
            But look! She is already dying.
            Their complaint will be in vain.
            And that dark moment finally comes,
            for her heavenly abode, she departs.
            Holding back their tears, her children,
            see their baba, who, with a heavy heart,
            hands trembling and with great anguish
            takes away her coffin during the night.
            He makes sure to fulfill her last wish.
            She will rest, out of everyone’s sight.
            Has gone from this world forever,
            the mother of children so brave!
            But why was she buried in a manner
            that no one knows, where is her grave?
            ‘Ali Rizwan Shah,
            14th Jamadiul Awwal, 1413 A.H.

            But also they cut all the financial resources of Ahlul-Bayt in order to crush the opposition. In Sahih al-Bukhari the following has also been narrated by Aisha:

            Fatimah the daughter of the Prophet sent someone to Abu Bakr (when he was a caliph), asking for her inheritance of what Allah’s Apostle had left of the property bestowed on him by Allah from the Fai (i.e. booty gained without fighting) in Medina, and Fadak, and what remained of the Khumus of the Khaibar booty. …but Abu Bakr refused to give anything of that to Fatimah. So she became angry with Abu Bakr and kept away from him, and did not task to him till she died. She remained alive for six months after the death of the Prophet. When she died, her husband ‘‘Ali, buried her at night without informing Abu Bakr and he said the funeral prayer by himself.

            Sunni References:
            – Sahih al-Bukhari, Chapter of “The battle of Khaibar”, Arabic-English, v5, tradition #546, pp 381-383, also v4, Tradition #325
            (Please see the appendix for the whole tradition.)

            Now either Fatimah was liar or Abu Bakr treated her unjustly. If she was liar, then she did not deserve such a saying from the Prophet that Fatimah is a part of me and whoever angers her, angers me. This in itself is a clear indication of her infallibility. The purification sentence of the Holy Qur’an (the last sentence of verse 33:33) is another indication of her infallibility, as Aisha herself testified (See Sahih Muslim, 1980 Edition, Arabic, v4, p1883, Tradition #61). Hence there is nothing left for the sensible people but to accept the fact that she was unjustly treated, and that she was easy to be branded as a liar by Umar who was willing to let her burn unless the remaining people in her house come out to vote for Abu Bakr.
            So logical conclusion from the above traditions in Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim is that Fatimah was treated unjustly, and that she was angry at Abu Bakr and Umar, which follows Allah and his prophet are angry at them according the above tradition in Sahih al-Bukhari. The excuse that Abu Bakr used to refuse to pay the right of Fatimah (see Appendix) was against the text of Qur’an. How can he be the executor of prophet while he does not obey the clear text of Qur’an? Abu Bakr claimed that prophet has said:
            “We prophets do not leave any inheritance, and whatever we leave should go to charity.”
            This is false allegation that he has made up, because prophet can not contradict Qur’an which in two verses testifies that prophets had heir, and their children inherited from them.
            Allah says in Qur’an:
            “And Solomon (Sulaymaan) inherited from David.”(Qur’an 27:16)
            While both Sulaymaan and David were prophets and very wealthy. They were kings of their times. Allah , Exalted, also says:
            “(Zakariya prayed to Allah by saying)… Grant me a son from yourself, who inherits from me and inherit from the children of Jacob, and make him, O’ my Lord, the one with whom you are well-pleased.”(Qur’an 19:5-6).
            These are examples that prophets left inheritance. In fact, Fatimah (sa) mentioned these verses as her proof for her right, but Abu Bakr refused due to the suggestion of Umar, and they intentionally went against the clear text of Qur’an.
            Historical facts testifie that prophet even had already transferred Fadak (Which was a big and rich piece of land in Hijaz) to Fatimah and it was the property of Fatimah long before the demise of the Prophet. As such, even it was not even the matter of inheritance as claimed by Abu Bakr. The reason that the Prophet had transferred Fadak to Fatimah was to provide financial resources for the followers of Ahlul-Bayt.
            But after the Prophet passed away, Abu Bakr and Umar dismissed the managers of that land (who were assigned by Fatimah in the life time of his father), and confiscated that land and other properties of Ahlul-Bayt. The reason is very simple: They knew that if this rich property remains in the hand of Imam ‘Ali and Fatimah, peace be upon them, they will spend its revenues to their followers and this would give strength to the rival party and endangers their position. Abu Bakr and Umar realized the fact that in order to control the oppositions, it is necessary to remove all the funding abilities first.
            Thus the problem was not a simple financial problem. It was absolutely political in nature. The quarrel Fatimah (sa) was not for the pleasure of this world. History testifies that Imam ‘Ali and Fatimah have had a very simple life during the life time of prophet as well as thereafter. It is well known that verses (76:8-9) of the holy Qur’an was revealed for them when for 3 consecutive days, they gave their meal to needy people at the time of IFTAR, when they were going to break their fast, and there was noting left for them and their children to eat for three consecutive days.
            So such pious people do not struggle or GET ANGRY because of such worldly things. THAT IS WHY ANGER OF FATIMAH IS ANGER OF PROPHET. They were, in fact, struggling for the sake of Allah and for spending their legitimate properties for His Right Path and its followers.
            At the time of Harun al-Rashid (one of the Abbasid Tyrants) the Islamic country was in its biggest extent. It was extended from Afghanistan and central Asia to the North Africa. So it was not important for government to give up a piece of land. Moreover, by returning it they could make propaganda for their interest. According to some reports, Harun told to Imam Musa al-Kadhim (the 7th Imam of the Ahlul-Bayt):
            “Let us know the location of the land of Fadak so that I could return it to you.”
            The Imam (as) replied:
            “I would accept it only in its entirety.”
            Harun said:
            “Specify its boundaries then.”
            The Imam (as) said:
            “If I specify its borders, you will not return it.”
            Harun said:
            “I swear in the name of your grandfather that I shall return it.”
            At this time, the Imam (as) said:
            “It extends from one side to Aden (Southern part of Arabian Peninsula), and from one side to Samarqand (Afghanistan), and from one side to Armenia (south of Russia) and from one side to Egypt in Africa.”
            The face of Harun turned red and said:
            “This does not leave anything for us.”
            The Imam (as) replied:
            “I told you that you will not return it if I specify its limits!”(al-Bihar, v48, p144, Hadith #20).
            Wassalam.
            Appendix
            Here is the whole tradition which was referred above:
            Sahih Bukhari Hadith: 5.546
            Narrated ‘Aisha:
            Fatimah the daughter of the Prophet sent someone to Abu Bakr (when he was a caliph), asking for her inheritance of what Allah’s Apostle had left of the property bestowed on him by Allah from the Fai (i.e. booty gained without fighting) in Medina, and Fadak, and what remained of the Khumus of the Khaibar booty. On that, Abu Bakr said,
            “Allah’s Apostle said, “Our property is not inherited. Whatever we leave, is Sadaqa, but the family of (the Prophet) Muhammad can eat of this property.’ By Allah, I will not make any change in the state of the Sadaqa of Allah’s Apostle and will leave it as it was during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle, and will dispose of it as Allah’s Apostle used to do.”
            So Abu Bakr refused to give anything of that to Fatimah. So she became angry with Abu Bakr and kept away from him, and did not talk to him till she died. She remained alive for six months after the death of the Prophet. When she died, her husband ‘‘Ali, buried her at night without informing Abu Bakr and he said the funeral prayer by himself.
            When Fatimah was alive, the people used to respect ‘‘Ali much, but after her death, ‘‘Ali noticed a change in the people’s attitude towards him. So ‘Ali sought reconciliation with Abu Bakr and gave him an oath of allegiance. ‘Ali had not given the oath of allegiance during those months (i.e. the period between the Prophet’s death and Fatimah’s death).
            ‘‘Ali sent someone to Abu Bakr saying, “Come to us, but let nobody come with you,” as he disliked that ‘Umar should come.
            ‘Umar said (to Abu Bakr), “No, by Allah, you shall not enter upon them alone.”
            Abu Bakr said,
            “What do you think they will do to me? By Allah, I will go to them’
            Abu Bakr entered upon them, and then ‘‘Ali uttered Tashah-hud and said (to Abu Bakr),
            “We know well your superiority and what Allah has given you, and we are not jealous of the good what Allah has bestowed upon you, but you did not consult us in the question of the rule and we thought that we have got a right in it because of our near relationship to Allah’s Apostle .”
            Thereupon Abu Bakr’s eyes flowed with tears. And when Abu Bakr spoke, he said,
            “By Him in Whose Hand my soul is to keep good relations with the relatives of Allah’s Apostle is dearer to me than to keep good relations with my own relatives. But as for the trouble which arose between me and you about his property, I will do my best to spend it according to what is good, and will not leave any rule or regulation which I saw Allah’s Apostle following, in disposing of it, but I will follow.”
            On that ‘‘Ali said to Abu Bakr,
            “I promise to give you the oath of allegiance in this after noon.”
            So when Abu Bakr had offered the Zuhr prayer, he ascended the pulpit and uttered the Tashah-hud and then mentioned the story of
            ‘‘Ali and his failure to give the oath of allegiance, and excused him, accepting what excuses he had offered; Then ‘‘Ali (got up) and praying (to Allah) forgiveness, he uttered Tashah-hud, praised Abu Bakr’s right, and said, that he had not done what he had done because of jealousy of Abu Bakr or as a protest of that Allah had favored him with. ‘‘Ali added, “But we used to consider that we too had some right in this affair (of rulership) and that he (i.e. Abu Bakr) did not consult us in this matter, and therefore caused us to feel sorry.”
            On that all the Muslims became happy and said, “You have done the right thing.”
            The Muslims then became friendly with ‘‘Ali as he returned to what the people had done (i.e. giving the oath of allegiance to Abu Bakr).

        AYATOLLAH TORTURED, NEAR DEATH, IN IRAN FOR CRITICIZING POLITICAL ISLAM
        by Shadi Paveh
        February 5, 2014

        Ayatollah Boroujerdi’s condition has reportedly worsened as of January 28, 2014, when he suffered severe body tremors and was motionless for hours in his cell. The authorities still refuse to transfer him to a medical facility and are denying him the most basic medical care. We ask for intervention to save his life.
        Ayatollah Hossein-Kazamani Boroujerdi, a senior member of the Shiite Muslim clergy, is presently serving the eighth year of an 11-year sentence handed down to him by the Islamic Republic’s courts for advocating the separation of state and religion inside Iran. He has also spoken against political Islam and its leaders. As a result, during his time in prison, he has been exposed to torture especially reserved for the Islamic Republic’s dissident clergy and political prisoners. Boroujerdi HAS ENDURED THE RAPE OF HIS SPOUSE IN FRONT OF OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS. He has been purposely exposed to toxic chemical agents while kept in a small solitary cell. As a result, he now suffers permanent neurological damage, further aggravated by group beatings. Urgent medical attention has been systematically withheld for his long list of ailments, which are mostly a direct result of years of torture and malnutrition.
        Ayatollah Hossein-Kazamani Boroujerdi, in better times (left) and in his prison cell (right).
        On September 29, 2013, for example, Ayatollah Boroujerdi suffered a heart attack in prison for which he was refused medical intervention. His condition has reportedly worsened as of January 28, 2014, when he had severe body tremors and was motionless for hours in his cell, where he presently remains with no medical care.
        Possibly due to Ayatollah Boroujerdi’s prominence, the regime has apparently chosen not to execute him, but instead to kill him silently in prison. There were two failed attempts on his life by poisoning inside prison in 2012. His mother, detained at the same time, was also poisoned and died as a result. Previously, in November 2011, a prisoner on death row was told by the authorities that if he succeeded in killing Boroujerdi he would be set free. The attempt failed when other prisoners intervened.
        To protest the violent crimes of political Islam in the Islamic Republic, Boroujerdi announced via audio tape from prison that: “I am not inclined anymore to wear this frock; this frock has no credit or value in Iran or the international community” and removed his clerical robes.
        Ayatollah Boroujerdi descends from a long line of renowned Shiite clergy; both his father and grandfather were staunch opponents of religious leaders in politics. As a result, both of his parents, along with his brother, were killed by the authorities under mysterious circumstances, as is the regime’s custom.
        Despite his critical medical condition in prison, he remains defiant and his spirit remains unbreakable: he has stated hopes that his case will serve as a strong indictment of the Islamic Republic’s despotic rule and unspeakable human rights violations.
        Ayatollah Boroujerdi has risked losing his life slowly under torture by writing letters from inside prison to then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and to the United Nations, speaking of the absolute lack of freedom inside Iran, the grotesque human rights violations and the imminent danger of political Islam. Further, he recently urged people of Iran to boycott the so-called elections on June 14, 2013. As a direct result of this statement his tortures recommenced despite his extremely fragile medical condition.
        Ms. Roya Araghi, an advocate of Boroujerdi who herself was jailed and tortured for defending the him, and has since fled Iran, believes that without medical treatment and international intervention, Ayatollah Boroujerdi will most likely die soon under torture.
        On June 29, 2013, members of Ayatollah Boroujerdi’s family went to Evin prison to visit him, and were shocked to see nature of his physical condition in the seventh year of his 11-year sentence. He has developed acute heart disease, which has led to the severe swelling of his feet and knees. He also suffers from ocular, pulmonary and respiratory disorders, but has been denied medical treatment by officials until he “repents “and “mends his ways”.
        On July 8, 2013, Boroujerdi was interrogated for an extended period of time by government agents for his refusal to concede to the demands of the regime by signing a letter of “repentance.” He was informed that “the pressures and tortures will increase until he has been destroyed”. He has thus far refused to surrender.
        In a rare phone call to his family that followed this episode, he stated that he “will never give in to a single threat or intimidation tactic of the regime.” His family stated that he also added, “he does not regret any of his actions and stands by his word, as he is prepared to die”.
        After their visit, the Boroujerdi family announced that the tyrannical regime of the Islamic Republic’s fanatics continue systematically to exterminate political prisoners and prisoners of conscience through well-planned prolonged torture; both psychological and physical.
        Despite a statement by then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2012 and a plea by the UN Special Rapporteur on Iran, Dr. Ahmad Shaheed, to release Ayatollah Boroujerdi, the Iranian regime continues to torture this man of God whose only crime is advocating separation of religion from politics, democracy and human rights.

        On July 24, 2013, Andrew Bennett, Canada’s Ambassador to the Office of Religious Freedom, condemned the prolonged detention of Grand Ayatollah Boroujerdi by Iranian authorities, but to no avail.
        The regime of Iran is silently executing Mr. Boroujerdi, without a bullet or a noose — away from the eyes of the world. These silent executions are now a common method of killing political prisoners in Iran as the regime tries to hide its grotesque human rights violations and its escalating rate of executions of opponents.

        The human rights activists for democracy in Iran would like to bring to the immediate attention of all international human rights organizations and governments that Ayatollah Boroujerdi’s life is in grave danger due to deliberate withholding of necessary medical care by the authorities in Iran. We ask for an intervention on his behalf, to save his life.

        AFRICAN SLAVES IN THE ARAB WORLD

        Over 28 Million Africans have been enslaved in the Muslim world during the past 14 centuries While much has been written concerning the Transatlantic slave trade, surprisingly little attention has been given to the Islamic slave trade across the Sahara, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.
        While the European involvement in the Transatlantic slave trade to the Americas lasted for just over three centuries, the Arab involvement in the slave trade has lasted fourteen centuries, and in some parts of the Muslim world is still continuing to this day. A comparison of the Muslim slave trade to the American slave trade reveals some interesting contrasts.
        While two out of every three slaves shipped across the Atlantic were men, the proportions were reversed in the Muslim slave trade.
        Two women for every man were enslaved by the Muslims.
        While the mortality rate for slaves being transported across the Atlantic was as high as 10%, the percentage of slaves dying in transit in the Transsahara and East African slave trade was between 80 and 90%!
        While almost all the slaves shipped across the Atlantic were for agricultural work, most of the slaves destined for the Muslim Middle East were for sexual exploitation as concubines, in harems, and for military service.
        While many children were born to slaves in the Americas, and millions of their descendants are citizens in Brazil and the USA to this day, very few descendants of the slaves that ended up in the Middle East survive.

        MUSLIM ARABS CASTERATED MOST BLACK MALE SLAVES
        WHY DID ARAB MUSLIMS CASTERATE MALE BLACK SLAVES & USE BLACK WOMEN AS BROOD MARES?

        Greek philosopher Aristotle (384 – 322 BC) made major contributions to biological and reproductive theory that would hold sway until the Renaissance period. For instance, his notion that conception originates solely from male seed, implanted into an otherwise dormant female body dominated reproductive discourse for centuries after his death.

        More than 2,000 years after Aristotle asserted that men were the real reproductive powerhouses, Dr. Martin Berry finally figured out that it takes two to make a thing go right. At last disproving the ancient Greek philosopher, Berry established that human conception occurs when sperm fertilizes an egg.
        While most slaves who went to the Americas could marry and have families, most of the male slaves destined for the Middle East were castrated, and most of the children born to the women were killed at birth.

        It is estimated that possibly as many as 11 million Africans were transported across the Atlantic (95% of which went to South and Central America, mainly to Portuguese, Spanish and French possessions. Only 5% of the slaves went to the United States).

        A comparison of the Muslim slave trade to the American slave trade reveals some interesting contrasts. While two out of every three slaves shipped across the Atlantic were men, the proportions were reversed in the Muslim slave trade. Two women for every man were enslaved by the Muslims.
        While the mortality rate for slaves being transported across the Atlantic was as high as 10%, the percentage of slaves dying in transit in the Transsahara and East African slave trade was between 80 and 90%!

        While almost all the slaves shipped across the Atlantic were for agricultural work, most of the slaves destined for the Muslim Middle East were for sexual exploitation as concubines, in harems, and for military service.

        While many children were born to slaves in the Americas, and millions of their descendants are citizens in Brazil and the USA to this day, very few descendants of the slaves that ended up in the Middle East survive.

        While most slaves who went to the Americas could marry and have families, most of the male slaves destined for the Middle East were castrated, and most of the children born to the women were killed at birth. It is estimated that possibly as many as 11 million Africans were transported across the Atlantic (95% of which went to South and Central America, mainly to Portuguese, Spanish and French possessions. Only 5% of the slaves went to the United States).

        While Christian Reformers spearheaded the antislavery abolitionist movements in Europe and North America, and Great Britain mobilized her Navy, throughout most of the 19th Century, to intercept slave ships and set the captives free, there was no comparable opposition to slavery within the Muslim world.
        Even after Britain outlawed the slave trade in 1807 and Europe abolished the slave trade in 1815, Muslim slave traders enslaved a further 2 million Africans. This despite vigorous British Naval activity and military intervention to limit the Muslim slave trade.

        By some calculations the number of victims of the 14 centuries of Muslim slave trade could exceed 180 million. Nearly 100 years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in America, and 130 years after all slaves within the British Empire were set free by parliamentary decree, Saudi Arabia and Yemen, in 1962, and Mauritania in 1980, begrudgingly removed legalized slavery from their statute books.

        And this only after international pressure was brought to bear. Today numerous international organizations document that slavery still continues in some Muslim countries.

        Reports on slavery in Sudan, Mauritania for instance needs looking into. Recently, a former slave from the Nuba Mountains of Sudan, Mende Nazer, had her autobiography: “Slave: My True Story” published. Mende Nazer was an alleged slave in Sudan. She was made famous by her transfer to England to serve a diplomatic family.

        Mende Nazer reports that she was abducted and sold into slavery in Sudan when she was a child of twelve or thirteen (she doesn’t know when she was born). She lived in a village of the Karko Nuba in the Nuba mountains of Sudan with her family. The village was attacked one night. Mende fled with her family into the mountains.

        She became separated from her family, and when a man caught her and told her he would protect her, she believed him. She had already seen people killed in front of her. The man told her to stay with a group of children.

        Later, the raiders came and took all of the children to the town of Dilling, there the children were taken by families to serve as servants.

        Mende also reports that she was taken by a woman from Khartoum whom she served for six or seven years. She had to do all the hard work of the household, and sleep on the floor of the garden shed.
        She was never paid anything for her labor, and was frequently beaten. She wanted to leave, but had no money and nowhere to go, and was afraid to go to the police. The woman of the house said that she owned Mende, and called Mende her ‘Abda’, or slave.

        Eventually Mende was sent to London to work as a domestic. After several months Mende escaped and claimed asylum. At first, the Home Office rejected her claim in October 2002. In November, the Home Office overturned its decision and granted Mende asylum.

        THE RACISM & SLAVERY OF ISLAM

        Racism is one of the greatest criminal acts practiced by man against man. And Islam is the most racist, bigoted, discriminatory ideology ever created by man.

        Racism is the belief that inherent different traits in human racial groups justify discrimination. It is applied especially to the practice or advocacy of racial discrimination of a pernicious nature (i.e. which harms particular groups of people). Modern usage often equates “racism” and “racial discrimination” and defines the latter term only as applying to pernicious practices.

        Racism is popularly associated with various activities that are illegal or commonly considered harmful, such as extremism, hatred, xenophobia, (malignant or forced) exploitation, separatism, racial supremacy, mass murder (for the purpose of genocide), genocide denial, vigilantism (hate crimes, terrorism), etc.

        WHY ISLAM IS THE MOST RACIST IDEOLOGY EVER CONCEIVED BY MAN?

        As you will read, Arabs believe they are a superior race and have the right to rape, torture, kill because the Quran being in Arabic non-Arabic people are inferior and are to be treated like slaves. This is sanctified by God in the Quran.

        RACISM AND SLAVERY ARE DIVINE ETERNAL INSTITUTIONS OF GOD

        All human beings, irrespective of race or color, are created equal in terms of rights and dignity. Assuming that one human being is lesser than another and worth being a slave or property of another person is abhorrent to civilized conscience. Slavery is one of the vilest institutions ever created by man. Slavery is a form of vile racism.

        In Islam, God is a slaver, who sanctions enslaving other people by Muslims in the Quran. Prophet Muhammad was a slaver, who took 20% from the profits derived from the sale of slaves. He also owned 40 slaves. He beat and raped his slaves. He hated the Blacks and compared them to Satan. Some 120 million Blacks were murdered by Muslims, the greatest holocaust in history. Of hunted Black slaves, some 75% of them died on the way to Islamic markets. All Black male slaves were castrated. While most black slaves sent to the Americas could marry and have families, most of the male black slaves destined for the Muslim world were castrated. Millions more died in the unhygienic operation for castrating them, and most of the black children born to the women were killed at birth.

        It was noted that black slaves were castrated “based on the assumption that the blacks had an ungovernable sexual appetite.

        Below are some of the commands of Islamic God, sanctioning slavery:

        Sura 2 (The Cow), Verse 178:
        “O you who believe! retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the slain, the free for the free, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female, but if any remission is made to any one by his (aggrieved) brother, then prosecution (for the bloodwit) should be made according to usage, and payment should be made to him in a good manner; this is an alleviation from your Lord and a mercy; so whoever exceeds the limit after this he shall have a painful chastisement.”

        Slavery is mentioned in this verse as part of Islam’s criminal law clearly indicating that slavery is an eternal divine institution in Islam, a part and parcel of Islamic societies.

        Sura 24 (The Light), Verse 31:
        “And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their husbands or their fathers, or the fathers of their husbands, or their sons, or the sons of their husbands, or their brothers, or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or those whom their right hands possess, or the male servants not having need (of women), or the children who have not attained knowledge of what is hidden of women; and let them not strike their feet so that what they hide of their ornaments may be known; and turn to Allah all of you, O believers! so that you may be successful.”

        This is the famous Sura enjoining the veiling of women. Those before whom the Muslim women need not veil themselves are “those whom their right hands possess”, which means “slaves”. Again God mentions slavery in this verse as a part and parcel of Muslim households. Therefore, slaves are an inseparable part of Muslim societies.

        Sura 23 (The Believers), Verses 1-6:
        “Successful indeed are the believers, Who are humble in their prayers, And who keep aloof from what is vain, And who are givers of poor-rate, And who guard their private parts, Except before their mates or those whom their right hands possess, for they surely are not blameable.”

        This verses not only sanctions the practice of slavery, but also gives the slave owner unfettered right to use female slaves sexual pleasures.

        Sura 24 (The Light), Verse 32:
        “And marry those among you who are single and those who are fit among your male slaves and your female slaves; if they are needy, Allah will make them free from want out of His grace; and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing.”

        This is said to sanction marriages of slaves with slaves and slaves with free persons (including the owner). Owners did not usually marry slaves as they could use them for sexual purposes at will. This dispensation has been used to make slaves marry other slaves. In Islam a child born to a slave couple also is a slave from birth, so this verse gives a great incentive to slave owners to breed slaves. This is another obnoxious aspect of Islamic slavery. Whatever be the other circumstances in which people are made into slaves to make a new-born infant a slave is one of the most cruel and callous. Ye this did not evoke a protest from the Prophet and has been extensively resorted to by Muslims.

        Sura 16 (The Bee), verse 75:
        “Allah sets forth a parable: (consider) a slave, the property of another, (who) has no power over anything, and one whom We have granted from Ourselves a goodly sustenance so he spends from it secretly and openly; are the two alike? (All) praise is due to Allah!”

        This is one of the clearest instances where the institution of slavery is justified in the Quran as a divine dispensation. It deserves close scrutiny. This “parable” contrasts two people a slave who is owned by another and is completely powerless and a freeman on whom Allah has granted “a goodly sustenance” which he can spend openly or secretly as he pleases (perhaps acquiring slaves for himself). Since Allah claims for himself the position of the granter of all benefits (or lack of them) both the freeman’s fortune and the slave’s misfortune are ultimately determined by Allah. By his rhetorical question — “Are the two alike?” — Allah was actually justifying the inequality between the slave and the freeman as a natural thing. Thus a Muslim will have no compunctions or qualms in employing and exploiting slaves (subject only to any conditions that Muhammad may have imposed) because it is what Allah has ordained and “all praise is due to Allah”.

        Sura 33 (The Clans), Verse 50:
        “O Prophet! surely We have made lawful to you your wives whom you have given their dowries, and those [slaves] whom your right hand possesses out of those whom Allah has given to you as prisoners of war, and the daughters of your paternal uncles and the daughters of your paternal aunts, and the daughters of your maternal uncles and the daughters of your maternal aunts who fled with you; and a believing woman if she gave herself to the Prophet, if the Prophet desired to marry her – specially for you, not for the (rest of) believers; We know what We have ordained for them concerning their wives and those whom their right hands possess in order that no blame may attach to you; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful”.

        As stated before – here, as elsewhere, the term “possessions of the right hand” mean slaves. It is expressly stated that Muhammad’s slaves are given to him by Allah himself to be taken out of his share of the captives in war. It also records the special dispensation given to Muhammad, not available to other Muslims, in the number of wives.

        Sura 39 (The Companions), Verses 29:
        “Allah sets forth an example: There is a slave in whom are (several) partners differing with one another, and there is another slave wholly owned by one man. Are the two alike in condition? (All) praise is due to Allah. Nay! most of them do not know.”

        The example set out here compares joint ownership of a slave by many owners and the single ownership by one person. Allah asks rhetorically whether the two cases are the same. Of course, they are not and it is clear that Muhammad prefers single ownership. In fact, this is why he established the rule that after a military campaign the captives were allocated to each of his soldiers individually not collectively, with himself keeping a fifth of the captives as his personal slaves.

        Sura 70 (The Ways of Ascent), verses 29-35:
        “And those who guard their private parts, Except in the case of their wives or those whom their right hands possess — for these surely are not to be blamed, But he who seeks to go beyond this, these it is that go beyond the limits — And those who are faithful to their trusts and their covenant And those who are upright in their testimonies, And those who keep a guard on their prayer, Those shall be in gardens, honored.”

        These verses are similar to Sura 23.93-96 and gives the right to slave owners to have sexual relation with female slaves. The only difference is that the earlier reference may leave some doubt as to whether both males and female slaves are meant. These verses clearly show that it is only female slaves that are meant.

        Quran 4:3:
        “Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice.”

        This verse is saying a Muslim man can have sex with his female slaves (obtained in war) just like with married wives (up to four). The divine institution of Islamic slavery, including the sex-slavery, is the vilest of institutions ever created in history.

        Allah, the Islamic God, thus, sanctions slavery as well as use of female slaves for pleasures of men – the vilest practice, albeit an divinely-sanctioned one, ever exercised by man. (For article titled, Islam, Slavery and Rape, go to: http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-62.htm)

        SLAVERY IN PROPHETIC TRADITIONS

        Following is just a small sample of more teachings of God’s divine institution of slavery.
        Muhammad’s position on freeing slaves

        1) In one instance, a man freed a slave that he kept as a sexual partner. When Muhammad heard what happened, he auctioned the boy and sold him for 800 dirhams to Na-eem Ebn Abdullah Al- Nahham. (Sahih Muslim, vol. 7, p. 83)

        2) According to Muhammad, the punishment for committing adultery is different with a free-woman and a slave-woman. The man must be flogged one-hundred stripes and be exiled for one year. The free woman must be stoned to death. But the slave-woman (since she has a monetary value) will not be exiled or killed, she is to be flogged one-hundred stripes. If the violation is repeated, the slave-woman is to be sold. (Sahih Al Bukhari vol. 8:821 & 822)

        ISLAM LOOKED DOWN ON BLACKS

        Islam’s sacred texts contain explicit denigrating remarks about black people.
        Muhammad referred to Blacks as “raisin heads”. (Sahih al-Bukhari 1.662, 9.256).
        In another Hadith, Muhammad is quoted as saying that Blacks are “pug-nosed slaves”. (Sahih Muslim vol. 9, p. 46-47).

        A Slave is not Entitled to Property or Money

        Ibn Hazm says in Vol. 6, Part 9,
        “The slave is not permitted to write a will when he dies, nor can he bequeath (anything) because his entire possessions belong to his master.”

        Testimony of Slaves inadmissible

        In Vol. 35, p. 409 Ibn Timiyya remarks:
        “The Shafi’i, Malik, and Abu Hanifa, who are the legists of Islam, assert that the testimony of the slave is not acceptable.”
        The “Ordinances of the Qur’an” by the Shafi’i (part II, p. 142), stipulates that,
        “The witnesses must be from among our freeman, not from our slaves, but from freeman who belong to our religion!”

        BLACK SLAVES ON MATTERS OF SEX & MARRIAGE

        1. The Slave cannot choose for himself.
        This was confirmed by all the Muslim scholars on the authority of Muhammad. In Vol. 6, Part 9, p. 467, Ibn Hazm said,
        “If a slave gets married without the permission of his master, his marriage will be invalid and he must be whipped because he has committed adultery. He must be separated from his wife. She is also regarded as an adulteress because Muhammad said, ‘Any slave who gets married without the approval of his master is a prostitute.'”
        The same text is quoted by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya (Part 5, p. 117 of “Zad al-Maad”), as well as Ibn Timiyya (Vol. 32, p. 201). Malik Ibn Anas relates (Vol. 2, Part 4) more than that. He says (pp. 199, 201, 206),
        “The slave does not get married without the approval of his master. If he is a slave to two masters, he has to obtain the approval of both men.”

        2. The male slave and the female slave are forced to get married.

        Malik Ibn Anas says explicitly,
        “The master has the right to force his male or female slave to marry without obtaining their approval” (Vol. 2, p. 155).

        “The master does not have the right to force the female slave to wed to an ugly black slave if she is beautiful and agile unless in case of utmost necessity” (refer to Ibn Hazm, Vol. 6, Part 9, p. 469).
        In matters of sex and marriage, Ibn Timiyya states:

        “The one who owns the mother also owns her children. Being the master of the mother makes him the owner of her children whether they were born to a husband or they were illegitimate children. Therefore, the master has the right to have sexual intercourse with the daughters of his maid-slave because they are his property, provided he does not sleep with the mother at the same time” (Vol. 35, p. 54).

        Price of Slaves

        “If an owned slave assaults somebody and damages his property, his crime will be tied to his neck. It will be said to his master, ‘If you wish, you can pay the fine for the damages done by your slave or deliver him to be sentenced to death.’ His master has to choose one of the two options – either the value of the slave and his price or the damage the slave has caused” (Vol. 32, p. 202, Ibn Timiyya).
        Ishaq, p. 243:

        “I heard the Apostle say: ‘Whoever wants to see Satan should look at Nabtal!’ He was a black man with long flowing hair, inflamed eyes, and dark ruddy cheeks…. Allah sent down concerning him: ‘To those who annoy the Prophet there is a painful doom.” [9:61] “Gabriel came to Muhammad and said, ‘If a black man comes to you his heart is more gross than a donkey’s.'”

        Ishaq, p. 144:
        “A rock was put on a slave’s chest. When Abu Bakr complained, they said, ‘You are the one who corrupted him, so save him from his plight.’ I will do so,’ said Bakr. ‘I have a black slave, tougher and stronger than Bilal, who is a heathen. I will exchange him. The transaction was carried out.”
        Tabari, II:11:

        “Shem, the son of Noah was the father of the Arabs, the Persians, and the Greeks; Ham was the father of the Black Africans; and Japheth was the father of the Turks and of Gog and Magog who were cousins of the Turks. Noah prayed that the prophets and apostles would be descended from Shem and kings would be from Japheth. He prayed that the African’s color would change so that their descendants would be slaves to the Arabs and Turks.”
        Tabari, II:21:
        “Ham [Africans] begat all those who are black and curly-haired, while Japheth [Turks] begat all those who are full-faced with small eyes, and Shem [Arabs] begat everyone who is handsome of face with beautiful hair. Noah prayed that the hair of Ham’s descendants would not grow beyond their ears, and that whenever his descendants met Shem’s, the latter would enslave them.”
        Ishaq, p. 450:
        “It is your folly to fight the Apostle, for Allah’s army is bound to disgrace you. We brought them to the pit. Hell was their meeting place. We collected them there, black slaves, men of no descent.”
        Bukhari 4.52.137:
        “The Prophet said, ‘Let the negro slave of Dinar perish. And if he is pierced with a thorn, let him not find anyone to take it out for him…. If he [the black slave] asks for anything it shall not be granted, and if he needs intercession [to get into paradise], his intercession will be denied.'”
        Slavery, raping slave girls, owning slaves, selling boys and women as trophies of war, sharing the booty (including slaves) obtained in raids and wars with Allah are all central teachings of Islam. Slavery was one of the major driving forces behind the expansion of Islam. After assuming his prophetic career, Prophet Muhammad enslaved large number of men and women, owned dozens of slaves, he sold many slaves as well as used the female captives as sex-slaves on top his dozen wives. Islam is such as vile, evil cult, which has been embraced by today’s civilized world’s 1.2 billion people as the perfect guide to life and its Prophet as perfect human being, the greatest apostle of God, a man of peace.
        Today, tens of millions of Blacks—whose forefathers were the worst victim of Muhammad’s cult—also eulogize this man, and call themselves proud Muslims. There cannot be anything more shameful than this.

        • Lucky, Nowhere in the Quran is it mentioned that a woman should be stoned to death or Slavery should be done! Also the verse 4:3 does NOT sanction the believers to have sex with the captives or slaves, as you claim. In fact it is giving them the right to marry the slaves!! If you were an Arab living at that time, would you marry your slave?

          Quran 4:3 Sahih International: And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline [to injustice].

          The above verse means “…or from those that your right hand possesses. In fact I find the above verse talking in relation to the orphans and their mothers!

          4:92 “.. it is ordained that he should free a believing slave”.
          5:89 “…give a slave his freedom…”
          9:60 “…Alms are for the poor and the needy . . . for those in bondage. . . ”
          58 :3-4 “… should free a slave before they touch each other…”
          90:4-13 “…Verily We have created Man into toil and struggle. . . . And what will explain to you the path that is steep? – (It is:) FREEING the bondman(slave) . . .”

          The above verses clearly indicate, as the Quran was being revealed to the most unruly and barbaric people of that time, in gradual process. Slavery had been in existence from time immemorial and the Arab merchants, who are Asians were the Merchants for the Western world.

          This you admitted in Brackets which I quote : “(95% of which went to South and Central America, mainly to Portuguese, Spanish and French possessions. Only 5% of the slaves went to the United States). You did NOT indicate what % went to Middle East!!

          Quran 24:33 “..And such of your slaves as seek a writing (of emancipation), write it for them if ye are aware of aught of good in them, and bestow upon them of the wealth of Allah which He hath bestowed upon you. Force not your slave-girls to whoredom that ye may seek enjoyment of the life of the world, if they would preserve their chastity…”

          “…Force not your slave-girls to whoredom that ye may seek enjoyment of the life of the world”.

          The above verse clearly says “…Force not your slave-girls to whoredom”.

          Quran 4:36 Sahih International: “… do good, and to those whom your right hands possess.”

          When the Western world realised that it had enough slaves it then decided to put a brake on importation of slaves. In fact you are wrong when you state that “only 5% were bought by the USA!!! Where did you get your figures from?

          Those Muslims who engaged in slavery did wrong to the Humanity as a whole but NOWHERE in the Quran is it stipulated that you can buy and sell slaves, got it?????

          • SLAVERY & SEX SLAVERY

            Question:

            Does Islam condone slavery? Does Islamic teaching allow Muslim men to keep women as sex slaves?

            Summary Answer:

            Islam neither ignores nor condemns slavery. In fact, a large part of the Sharia is dedicated to the practice.

            Muslims are encouraged to live in the way of Muhammad, who was a slave owner and trader. He captured slaves in battle. He had sex with his slaves. And he instructed his men to do the same. The Qur’an actually devotes more verses to making sure that Muslim men know they can keep women as sex slaves than it does to telling them to pray five times a day.

            THE QURAN

            Qur’an (33:50) – “O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those (slaves) whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee” This is one of several personal-sounding verses “from Allah” narrated by Muhammad – in this case allowing himself a virtually unlimited supply of sex partners. Others are restrained to four wives, but may also have sex with any number of slaves, as the following verse make clear:

            Qur’an (23:5-6) – “..who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess…” This verse permits the slave-owner to have sex with his slaves. See also Qur’an (70:29-30).

            Qur’an (4:24) – “And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” Even sex with married slaves is permissible.

            Qur’an (8:69) – “But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good” A reference to war booty, of which slaves were a part. The Muslim slave master may enjoy his “catch” because (according to verse 71) “Allah gave you mastery over them.”

            Qur’an (24:32) – “And marry those among you who are single and those who are fit among your male slaves and your female slaves…” Breeding slaves based on fitness.

            Qur’an (2:178) – “O ye who believe! Retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the murdered; the freeman for the freeman, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female.” The message of this verse, which prescribes the rules of retaliation for murder, is that all humans are not created equal. The human value of a slave is less than that of a free person (and a woman’s worth is also distinguished from that of a man’s).
            Qur’an (16:75) – “Allah sets forth the Parable (of two men: one) a slave under the dominion of another; He has no power of any sort; and (the other) a man on whom We have bestowed goodly favours from Ourselves, and he spends thereof (freely), privately and publicly: are the two equal? (By no means;) praise be to Allah.” Yet another confirmation that the slave is is not equal to the master. In this case it is plain that the slave owes his status to Allah’s will. (According to 16:71, the owner should be careful about insulting Allah by bestowing Allah’s gifts on slaves – those whom the god of Islam has not favored).
            SLAVERY IN ISLAM
            All the ancient as well as the contemporary scholars acknowledge the fact of slavery in Islam and clarify the status of slaves. I have chosen the opinions of the most famous scholars to shed light on their position.
            The Scholars of al-Azhar in Egypt
            In his book, “You Ask and Islam Answers”, Dr. ‘Abdul-Latif Mushtahari, the general supervisor and director of homiletics and guidance at the Azhar University, says (pp. 51,52),
            “Islam does not prohibit slavery but retains it for two reasons. The first reason is war (whether it is a civil war or a foreign war in which the captive is either killed or enslaved) provided that the war is not between Muslims against each other – it is not acceptable to enslave the violators, or the offenders, if they are Muslims. Only non-Muslim captives may be enslaved or killed. The second reason is the sexual propagation of slaves which would generate more slaves for their owner.”
            The text is plain that all prisoners of war must either be killed or become slaves. The ancient scholars are in full agreement over this issue, such as Ibn Timiyya, Ibn Hisham, Malik etc. Ibn Timiyya says (Vol. 32, p. 89),
            “The root of the beginning of slavery is prisoners of war; the bounties have become lawful to the nation of Muhammad.”
            Then (Vol. 31, p. 380), he indicates clearly and without shame,
            “Slavery is justified because of the war itself; however, it is not permissible to enslave a free Muslim. It is lawful to kill the infidel or to enslave him, and it also makes it lawful to take his offspring into captivity.
            In Part 4, p. 177 of the “Prophet Biography” (Al-Road Al-Anf’), Ibn Hisham says,
            “According to Islamic law concerning prisoners of war, the decision is left to the Muslim Imam. He has the choice either to kill them or to exchange them for Muslim captives, or to enslave them. This is in regard to men, but women and children are not permitted to be killed, but must be exchanged (to redeem Muslim captives) or enslaved – take them as slaves and maids.”
            This is the statement of Ibn Hisham, on whom all Muslims and students of Muhammad’s biography rely. Of course, these matters which Ibn Hisham recorded used to take place continuously in all of Muhammad’s wars and invasions. All of Muhammad’s people (his wives, and Muhammad himself) owned many slaves – males and females. In his campaign against the children of Qurayza (the Jewish tribe), Muhammad killed all the males (700-900) in one day. Then, he divided the women and the children among his people.
            The Caliphs across the ages followed Muhammad’s footsteps and enslaved (by hundreds and thousands) men and women who were captured in wars. Many of them were Persians and Byzantines. All the Islamic Chroniclers without exception have recorded these facts. The way Arab Muslims invaded Africa and killed and enslaved Africans is a well-known, historical fact.
            In Vol. 2, Part 3, p. 13, Malik Ibn Anas repeated the same text as did Ibn Hisham who is also quoted by Ibn Timiyya, and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya in his book, “Zad al-Ma’ad” (part 3, p. 486). All of them taught the same principle and said the same words.
            This question was delivered to Ibn Timiyya who was Mufti of Islam (Vol. 31, pp. 376, 377),
            “A man married a maid-slave who bore him a child. Would that child be free or would he be an owned slave?”
            Ibn Timiyya says emphatically,
            “Her child whom she bore from him would be the property of her master according to all the Imams (heads of the four Islamic schools of law) because the child follows the (status) of his mother in freedom or slavery. If the child is not of the race of Arabs, then he is definitely an owned slave according to the scholars, but the scholars disputed (his status) among themselves if he was from the Arabs – whether he must be enslaved or not because when A’isha (Muhammad’s wife) had a maid-slave who was an Arab, Muhammad said to A’isha, `Set this maid free because she is from the children of Ishmael.'”
            Then Ibn Timiyya states (Vol. 31, p. 380) that the legist Abu Hanifa says, “Muhammad is an Arab; thus it is not admissible to enslave Arabs because of the nobility of this race since Muhammad is from them.” Yet other scholars disagree with him, emphasizing that Muhammad (in one of his campaigns) enslaved Arabs, too. However, it is evident from Muhammad’s traditions that he regarded Arabs to be the most noble race, especially the Quraysh, his tribe. His famous saying (that the caliphs must be elected from the Quraysh tribe) is acknowledged by all translators of the tradition without exception.
            He should have told A’isha, “Set her free because she is a human being like you. It is not important whether she is a descendant of Ishmael or of Isaac!”
            Islam Encourages Muslims to Keep Slaves – No Liberation
            All Muslim scholars acknowledge that Islam has retained the principle of slavery, though some of them claim that Islam encourages the liberation of slaves. Maybe some of Muhammad’s sayings and a few Qur’anic verses indicate so, yet from a practical point of view, we realize that the liberation of slaves was a rare occurrence. The reason is well known. Neither Muhammad nor his wives or companions were a good example in this regard. Sometimes, Muhammad used to talk about the merits of liberating a slave, yet he himself owned dozens of slaves and maid-slaves. However, we encounter a strange opinion spelled out by Muhammad’s wives and his friends in which he encourages them to retain their slaves. In Vol. 33, p. 61 Ibn Timiyya says,
            “Anyone who says, `If I do so (such a thing), every slave I own will become free’ is not obligated by his oath and he can redeem his oath by any means and retain his slaves. (He can do that) by fasting a few days or by feeding some hungry people.”
            On the same page Ibn Timiyya stresses that this is what all Muhammad’s friends said (such as Ibn ‘Abbas and Ibn ‘Umar) as well as his wives (such as Zaynab, A’isha, and Um Salama).
            Is the liberation of slaves a bad thing so that it is possible for a man who swears he will liberate his slaves to renounce his oath and retain them? It should be said that whoever takes an oath to free his slaves if so and so happens, is obliged to fulfill his oath and liberate his slaves, but we see that Muhammad’s wives, his great companions and his relatives say something different according to the testimony of Ibn Timiyya.
            The Qur’an itself (in several places) approves of slavery and assures the Muslim the right to own dozens of male and female slaves either by purchasing them or as bounty of war. The Qur’an talks about the possession of slaves as “the possession of their necks” (Chapter 58:3, Surah Al-Mujadilah).
            Slaves of Muhammad – Prophet of Freedom and Equality!
            Muhammad himself owned numerous slaves after he proclaimed himself to be a prophet. I would like here to quote Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya who is one of the greatest scholars and chroniclers of Islam. In his book, “Zad al-Ma’ad” (Part I, p. 160), he says,
            “Muhammad had many male and female slaves. He used to buy and sell them, but he purchased (more slaves) than he sold, especially after God empowered him by His message, as well as after his immigration from Mecca. He (once) sold one black slave for two. His name was Jacob al-Mudbir. His purchases of slaves were more (than he sold). He was used to renting out and hiring many slaves, but he hired more slaves than he rented out.
            This trading used to take place in the slave market in the Arab Peninsula and in Mecca. Muhammad was accustomed to sell, purchase, hire, rent, and to exchange one slave for two. Thus, he had an increasing number of slaves, especially after he claimed to be a prophet, and after his immigration from Mecca to escape death at the hand of his tribe Quraysh. Also, the slaves of Muhammad and his followers were constantly increasing as the result of those who were captured in wars and not only by purchase. This should alert those who have accepted Islam – the Muslims of New York, Chicago, Georgia, Detroit, Los Angeles as well as all the Africans and all Muslims of the world. Even among the Arabs are Muslims who are not aware of these facts concerning Muhammad. Sadly, this is only a small part of the facts of which they are unaware concerning Muhammad.
            The Names of Muhammad’s Slaves
            A) Male Slaves:
            Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya relies always on the prophet’s biographies written by great ancient scholars. Therefore, he is regarded by Muslims as an authority, a primary source and a leader among the students of the Islamic religion. This scholar tells us in his book, “Zad al-Ma’ad” (part 1, pp. 114, 115, and 116), the following,
            “These are the names of Muhammad’s male slaves: Yakan Abu Sharh, Aflah, ‘Ubayd, Dhakwan, Tahman, Mirwan, Hunayn, Sanad, Fadala Yamamin, Anjasha al-Hadi, Mad’am, Karkara, Abu Rafi’, Thawban, Ab Kabsha, Salih, Rabah, Yara Nubyan, Fadila, Waqid, Mabur, Abu Waqid, Kasam, Abu ‘Ayb, Abu Muwayhiba, Zayd Ibn Haritha, and also a black slave called Mahran, who was re-named (by Muhammad) Safina (`ship’).
            He himself relates his own story; he says:
            “The apostle of God and his companions went on a trip. (When) their belongings became too heavy for them to carry, Muhammad told me, `Spread your garment.’ They filled it with their belongings, then they put it on me. The apostle of God told me, `Carry (it), for you are a ship.’ Even if I was carrying the load of six or seven donkeys while we were on a journey, anyone who felt weak would throw his clothes or his shield or his sword on me so I would carry that, a heavy load. The prophet told me, `You are a ship”‘ (refer to Ibn Qayyim, pp. 115-116; al-Hulya, Vol. 1, p. 369, quoted from Ahmad 5:222).
            The story shows their ruthlessness and does not need explanation or clarification. The ill treatment Muhammad and his companions made of Mahran is very repulsive. Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya is not the only one who recorded this episode and the list of names of Muhammad’s slaves. The Tabari also (in his Chronicles, Volume 2 p. 216, 217, 218) presents us with these accounts. No one among the contemporary Muslim leaders denies these matters, especially if he is faced with the Tabari’s and Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya’s records.
            Still, in regard to Muhammad’s slave Zayd Ibn Haritha, Muhammad set him free and adopted him, then he married him to his (Muhammad’s) cousin Zaynab. Later Zayd divorced her after he realized that Muhammad was captivated by her. The scandalous story is documented by verses in the Qur’an, and Muslim scholars admit it.
            B) Maid Slaves:
            In this same Section (One, p. 116), Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya as well as other Muslim authors of chronicles recorded the list of names of Muhammad’s maid-slaves. They are Salma Um Rafi’, Maymuna daughter of Abu Asib, Maymuna daughter of Sa’d, Khadra, Radwa, Razina, Um Damira, Rayhana, Mary the Coptic, in addition to two other maid-slaves, one of them given to him as a present by his cousin, Zaynab, and the other one captured in a war.
            The Status of the Slave Under Islam’s Unjust Laws
            Let us survey together some strange things embraced by Muhammad and Islam pertaining to slaves. Then let us shed some light on the attitude of Christianity towards this issue.
            The Freeman Should Not Be Killed For A Slave
            The Qur’an as well as Muslim scholars are explicit in this regard The Qur’an (the Chapter of the Cow:178) shamelessly says,
            “O ye who believe! Retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the murdered – the freeman for the freeman, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female.”
            The reader does not need the interpretations of the scholars to understand these explicit words which indicate that the freeman should be killed only for another freeman, a slave for a slave, and a female for a female. Still, I promised to stick to the interpretations of the great expositors of these Qur’anic verses from among the Muslim scholars because they are more knowledgeable of their Book and its verses. We rely on their interpretations and not on our own. In the commentary of the Jalalan (p. 24), we read the following regarding the above mentioned verse,
            “The same punishment was imposed on believers and what is similar to the act of the crime in the case of a homicide, by virtue of description or actuality. A freeman should be killed for another freeman but not for a slave, a female for a female, but a Muslim (even if he is a slave) must not be killed for an infidel, even if that infidel is a freeman.”
            What kind of equality is this between human beings!
            To explain the aforementioned verse (2:178), the Baydawi relates what really happened with the prophet Muhammad, Abu Bakr and ‘Umar. This is recorded in his book entitled, “The Commentary of al-Baydawi”. On p. 36, we read,
            “The Shafi’i and Malik prohibit the killing of a freeman if he slays his slave or other men’s slaves. This is because ‘Ali Ibn Abi-Talib mentioned that a man had killed his slave and Muhammad scourged him only; he did not kill him. It was related on the authority of Muhammad that he said a Muslim should not be killed for a non-Muslim, nor a freeman for a slave; also because Abu Bakr and ‘Umar Ibn al-Khattab did not kill a freeman for a slave. (This was said) in the presence of all Muhammad’s companions, and no one disapproved or objected to it.”
            These are the verses of the Qur’an and this is the attitude of Muhammad himself as well as Abu Bakr and ‘Umar after him.
            The Muslim legists
            The Shafi’i, Malik and Ibn Timiyya, pronounce the same principle as in the Qur’an (2:187).
            The Imam Shafi’i tells us plainly and decisively in Part I of his book, “Ahkam al-Qur’an” (“The Ordinances of the Qur’an”, p. 275),
            “A man is not to be killed for his slave nor the freeman for a slave.”
            On the same page he adds,
            “A believer is not to be killed for a non-believer, nor a man for his son, or a man for his slave or for a woman.”
            What justice! What equality! Then he adds,
            “The freeman is not to be killed for a slave according to the scholars.”
            Malik Ibn Anas was asked: “What is the punishment of a master who beats his slave to death?” He answered: “Nothing!” (Vol. 6, Part 15, p 164).
            In Vol. 28, p. 378, Ibn Timiyya also says:
            “What we mentioned in regard to the believers whose blood is treated equally is restricted to the free Muslim against another free Muslim.”
            I do not have better witnesses in this regard than these scholars: Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Ali and Muhammad’s deeds, and all great, popular Muslim scholars.
            A Slave Is Not Entitled To Property Or Money
            Ibn Hazm says in Vol. 6, Part 9,
            “The slave is not permitted to write a will when he dies, nor can he bequeath (anything) because his entire possessions belong to his master.”
            In part I, p. 180 of his book, “The Ordinances of the Qur’an”, the Shafi’i also says,
            “The Qur’anic verse; `Marry of the women who seem good to you, two or three or four are meant for the freeman only and not for the slaves because he says in it that the one who acts fairly is the person who owns money and slaves do not own money.”‘
            He also indicates in Part II, p. 21, “The owned one does not have money.” Besides, according to the Islamic law, all Muslims receive portions of war bounty except slaves and women. Malik Ibn Anas says (Vol. 2, Part 3, pp. 33,34),
            “Slaves and women do not have any portion in the bounty.”
            This is true even if they have been fighting with the rest of the Muslims. In Part III of the “Prophetic Biography” (p. 386), Ibn Kathir says,
            “The slave does not get anything from the bounty whether the bounty is money or women.”
            The Testimony Of The Slave Is Not Admissible
            In Vol. 35, p. 409 Ibn Timiyya remarks,
            “The Shafi’i, Malik, and Abu Hanifa, who are the legists of Islam, assert that the testimony of the slave is not acceptable.”
            If we also turn the pages of the “Ordinances of the Qur’an” by the Shafi’i (part II, p. 142), he determines,
            “The witnesses must be from among our freeman, not from our slaves, but from freeman who belong to our religion! ”
            The testimony of a Jew or a Christian is not acceptable, as we have mentioned before, even if justice would be hindered for lack of their witness. This is not important. In his “Sahih” (Part III, p. 223), Al-Bukhari remarks,
            “The testimony of a slave is not acceptable in marriages.”
            What is the meaning of the Shafi’i’s statement,
            “A witness should not be from our possessed slaves.”
            Does not Mr. Shafi’i know that God only is the One who owns people? How dare he utter the phrase, “our possessed slaves.”
            There Is No Punishment For One Who Makes False Accusation Against Slaves
            It is well known that if a Muslim falsely accuses another free Muslim and slanders his honor, he will be punished by being flogged with eighty lashes. This is what happened when some of Muhammad’s companions and relatives accused A’isha, his wife, of adultery with one of the young men because they stayed behind after the departure of the caravan, then later in the morning they arrived together. Muhammad ordered each one of them flogged with eighty lashes. But if a Muslim calumniates a slave, he would not be punished.
            This is the opinion of all the scholars.
            For instance (Vol. 8, Part II, p. 27 1), Ibn Hazm asserts that this is the opinion of Abu Hanifa, Shafi’i, Malik, and Sufyan al-Thawri and not only his own opinion. This is what the Sharawi shamelessly remarks,
            “Female slaves are deprived of dignity and subject to abuse because they are not `an honor’ to anyone (that is, they are not free, respectable women who belong to a free man). These are the same words reiterated by the Shafi’i (Part I, p. 307) in his book, `Ahkam of the Qur’an’; thus a female slave must not be veiled. When- ever Muhammad took a woman as a captive, if he imposed the veil on her, Muslims would say he took her as a wife, but if he left her unveiled they would say, `He owned her as a slave’; that is, she became a property of his right hand.”
            A good example is the incident of Safiyya, daughter of Hay, who was taken as a bounty in the war of Khaybar. All the chronicles (as well as the biographies without exception) have recorded, “We wonder why it is said about women and girls that they are of `shed dignity’.” The Shafi’i and the Sharawi state this word for word. Is it necessary for us to repeat that Islam sheds the dignity of man under the pretense that he is a slave, that she is a woman, or that he is a non-Muslim?
            On Matters Of Sex And Marriage – and About Black Slaves
            1. The Slave cannot choose for himself.
            This was confirmed by all the Muslim scholars on the authority of Muhammad. In Vol. 6, Part 9, p. 467, Ibn Hazm said,
            “If a slave gets married without the permission of his master, his marriage will be invalid and he must be whipped because he has committed adultery. He must be separated from his wife. She is also regarded as an adulteress because Muhammad said, `Any slave who gets married without the approval of his master is a prostitute.'”
            The same text is quoted by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya (Part 5, p. 117 of “Zad al-Maad”), as well as Ibn Timiyya (Vol. 32, p. 201). Malik Ibn Anas relates (Vol. 2, Part 4) more than that. He says (pp. 199, 201, 206),
            “The slave does not get married without the approval of his master. If he is a slave to two masters, he has to obtain the approval of both men.”
            2. The male slave and the female slave are forced to get married.
            Malik Ibn Anas says explicitly,
            “The master has the right to force his male or female slave to marry without obtaining their approval” (Vol. 2, p. 155).
            Ibn Hazm says that Sufyan al-Thawri, too, has said that the master has the right to force his male or female slave to marry without securing their approval (Vol. 6, Part 9, p. 469). Ibn Timiyya is of the same opinion.
            I must not fail in this regard to mention that Malik Ibn Ons, who (after agreeing with the other scholars that the master has the right to force his male or female slave to get married) added,
            “The master does not have the right to force the female slave to wed to an ugly black slave if she is beautiful and agile unless in case of utmost necessity” (refer to Ibn Hazm, Vol. 6, Part 9, p. 469).
            We wonder here, what did Malik Ibn Anas mean when he said, “An ugly black slave”? Is a man valued on the basis of the color of his skin? Do you say that, O Malik Ibn Anas, and you are one of the great four legists? Or is a man valued on the basis of his personality, reasoning, and heart? We also have the right to wonder why Mihran, the black slave, suffered the humiliation afflicted on him by Muhammad and his companions when they made him carry their belongings in the burning desert while Muhammad was saying to him, “Carry them, for you are a ship.” Thus he became known by that surname. Did they not have dozens of other slaves?
            Muhammad even discriminated (in Islam) between a black dog and a white dog! Yet, what concerns us here is what I pointed out about slaves in general, their masters treat them as if they are not human beings who have feelings, desires and self-will.
            Let us continue our discussion in order to have a more complete picture about how the Islamic religion abuses the dignity of men and women under the pretense that they are slaves and not free human beings.
            3. The Arab freeman does not marry a slave unless it is inevitable:
            In Vol. 31, p. 383, Ibn Timiyya says,
            “It is not permissible for the Arab freeman to marry an owned slave unless it is inevitable, such as being unable to get married to a free woman. If it happened and he were wed to a slave, her children would be slaves, too, because they follow (the status) of the mother in slavery.”
            Malik Ibn Anas notes,
            “It is not allowable for a man to wed a slave besides his freewoman wife. In this case, his wife has the right to divorce him. Likewise, if he marries a freewoman while he is already married to a slave and he fails to tell her so, the freewoman has the right to leave him” (Malik, Vol. 2, p. 204).
            I do not have any comment on these strange principles, yet I wonder why an Arab freeman cannot marry a slave. Is not he a man and she a woman? And why (if it is inevitable that he should marry her) should all her descendants be slaves? These are iniquitous and ruthless ordinances. It is obvious that Muhammad failed to change the traditions of the tribal society of the pre-Islamic period. Most Arab Muslims had slaves. His companions, wives and he himself owned and retained dozens of them. He bought more after he claimed his prophethood and declared his message – the message or equality, and freedom, and human rights!
            What Would Happen If A Freewoman Married Her Slave?
            She might be an open-minded woman who did not discriminate between one man and another. Thus she might have fallen in love with her slave who also loved her and they intended, officially, to get married. What is the attitude of Islam in this case? If something like that took place in Islamic society, it would be a disaster! Let us see the reaction of Umar Ibn Khattab in these situations. In Vol. 8, Part 11, pp. 248, 249, Ibn Hazm remarks,
            “A woman was wed to her male slave. Umar intended to stone her, but instead he made them separate and sent the slave to exile. He told the woman, `It is unlawful for you to get married to your owned slave!’ Another woman got married to her slave. Umar scourged her with a whip and forbade any man to marry her. Another time, a freewoman came to Umar and told him, `I am not a pretty woman and I have a slave to whom I would like to get married.’ Umar refused to do so. He whipped the slave and ordered him to be sold in a foreign country. He told the woman, `It is unlawful for you to get married to what your right hand owns. Only men have the right to get wed to what their right hand owns. Even if you set him free in order to marry him and he becomes a freeman, the manumission will be invalid and the marriage is not valid.”‘
            Is there any comment on the ruthlessness of this second caliph who was Muhammad’s father-in-law and one of the ten to whom Muhammad promised paradise? He is one of the two whom Muhammad requested the people to follow as a model when he declared, “Emulate Abu Bakr and Umar.” Yet Umar was a tyrant, a ruthless man without a heart who attempted to stone a woman for no reason except she married a man who was her slave. He also scourged another woman, forbidding any other man to marry her, and beat and exiled a slave. And when a third woman wanted to free her slave in order to marry him and live happily together, especially after she lost hope in getting married to a freeman, Islam and Umar intervened and said, “No, this is not permissible.” He scourged the slave and sold him into a foreign country. By that, he became an example of relentlessness, a hard heart, and detestable oppression.
            In matters of sex and marriage, Ibn Timiyya states:
            “The one who owns the mother also owns her children. Being the master of the mother makes him the owner of her children whether they were born to a husband or they were illegitimate children. Therefore, the master has the right to have sexual intercourse with the daughters of his maid-slave because they are his property, provided he does not sleep with the mother at the same time” (Vol. 35, p. 54).
            The Value Of The Slave – What Is His Price In Dinars?
            “If an owned slave assaults somebody and damages his property, his crime will be tied to his neck. It will be said to his master, `If you wish, you can pay the fine for the damages done by your slave or deliver him to be sentenced to death.’ His master has to choose one of the two options – either the value of the slave and his price or the damage the slave has caused” (Vol. 32, p. 202, Ibn Timiyya).
            Is this how the value of a man is calculated? If the loss amounted, for example, to 600 dinars and the value of the slave in the estimation of the master did not exceed more than 400 dinars because he was sick or weak, his master would, in this case, deliver him to be killed!
            We have looked at six points concerning the status of slaves in the Islamic religion. Actually, any one point, if we ponder it, is sufficient to clarify the truth. It reveals to us how human dignity is crushed in the practice of slavery. From the very beginning, we referred to the principle of slavery as it is manifested in this religion, and we have listed the names of Muhammad’s slaves, the master and the “apostle of God!”
            The Position of Christianity – the Teaching of the Gospel
            Christianity is very decisive in this matter. The words and the spirit of the Gospel are very clear. From the very beginning, we have used a fundamental principle in this study and research; namely, the comparison must always be between the Gospel and the Qur’an – Christianity as religion and teachings and Islam as religion, in order to see which one of the two reveals the thoughts of the true, living God. Also, the comparison should be between Muhammad, his life and his sayings on the one hand, and Christ, His life and teachings on the other.
            If we were to find (for example) some Europeans or Americans who allowed themselves to acquire slaves, we should not blame Christianity for that because we must realize that the Gospel teaches something different. We see that Jesus and His disciples did not possess slaves.
            We do blame Islam in this regard because Muhammad himself acquired male and female slaves by dozens. All his friends, his wives and most Muslims of his time and after owned slaves. The Qur’an encourages that and the scholars do not negate it. We blame Islamic thought and the behavior of Muhammad in regard to this matter and other issues recorded in the most authentic Islamic sources.
            We should not, in any subject, dwell on the behavior of some Christians or some Muslims but rather try to examine the attitude of Islamic thought (or Christian thought) toward the issues under discussion. Some people, for instance, believe that a man like Khomeini is an extremist because of Islam, the religion of tolerance, love, and reason. We, for our part, feel surprised to hear that, because who says that this statement is true? Islam is not the religion of tolerance, love, or reason. Not at all! Islam is the exact opposite of this claim.
            Did we not see that this religion humiliates and persecutes women and non-Muslims as well as waging offensive wars and encouraging Muslims to kill apostates? Is Muhammad, who ordered the killing of a woman who insulted him, the prophet of tolerance? Why should we blame Khomeini when he issued an order to kill Rushdie? Does not Rushdie (according to the law of Islam and Muhammad, not the law of the United Nations) deserve death for attacking the Qur’an, Muhammad and his wives? Khomeini was never radical; he was always a true student of Muhammad. He intended to enforce the Islamic laws and to fight nations which do not comply with them – such as Iraq (even though Islam is its official religion).
            When Muslims kill one another, it is because Muhammad’s friends and disciples did so immediately after his death, each one of them trying to force his friend to go in the right way. Khomeini is a true Muslim who follows Muhammad and his friends. Thus, we hear about “exporting the Islamic revolution” to other countries. All these things are compatible with the views of Muhammad and the rightly guided Caliphs who succeeded him such as Abu Bakr, Umar and Ali. When Khomeini slaughtered his opponents, he was following the footsteps of Ali who killed the dissenters, like Talha, Al Zubair and Al Khwareg, even though they were faithful Muslims.
            Now, what does the New Testament say about slaves? If we turn in the pages of the New Testament we read these verses:
            “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Gal. 3:28).
            Christ was always warning his disciples and all believers from calling themselves masters. He said to them:
            “But you, do not be called `Rabbi’ [master]; for One is your Teacher [master], the Christ, and you are all brethren” (Matt. 23:8).
            “But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be abased (humbled); and he who humbles himself will be exalted” (Matt. 23:12).
            By these last words Christ has turned over all the feeble human standards – The “… greatest among you shall be your servant.” How profound and deep are these wonderful words!
            This truth is clearly taught in the New Testament by the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It happened that there was a slave called Onesimus who ran away from his master, Philemon. Onesimus met the apostle Paul in Rome and was converted to Christianity. Paul sent him back to Philemon with a very impressive letter which is included in the New Testament and in which we read these shining words,
            “I am sending him back. You therefore receive him, that is, my own heart. Receive him … no longer as a slave but … as a beloved brother, …, both in the flesh and in the Lord” (Chapter 1).
            Paul, Peter and the rest of the disciples did not have the authority to abolish slavery within the Roman Empire. Paul was not one of the Roman governors, but a fugitive and a persecuted man. Later he and most of the disciples were killed at the hands of the Romans along with thousands of their Christian brothers. Muhammad and his successors were rulers and could have outlawed slavery. Instead, they retained it and kept their slaves.
            In another letter, Paul urged the Christians to “give your servants what is just and fair” (Col. 4:1). The text emphasizes these two words – brotherhood and justice – because there is neither slave nor freeman, but all are one in Christ.
            Egyptian history relates a story about a courageous man who stood in front of his tyrannical rulers who mistreated people and wondered in agony, “Why have you enslaved people whose mothers gave birth to them as free persons?” This brave man did not know that he was addressing multitudes of people across the ages, whether ruthless Westerners in Europe and America or the prophet of Islam himself who failed to liberate the slaves because he himself had acquired dozens of them.
            Christian religious leaders such as John Wesley boldly condemned slavery in Europe and sent strong messages to the rulers of Europe and America. They led the movement of slaves’ liberation during the day of Abraham Lincoln. Now there are multiplied black men who hold various positions of honor and respect in America. They teach in colleges and universities. They sit on the bench of the courts of the land-even the Supreme Court. They are freely elected to local, county, state and federal positions. They hold high military offices. They build their own fortunes with which they do as they wish. They freely marry and raise their families without fear.

            This is what Jesus taught – “There is no difference ….”

  2. All you people can argue and abuse Islam all you want but the fact remains that all of you are eventually going to die and that is when you will realise it. Here on the Internet you can hide behind aliases and etc. I’m a Muslim and if I had a chance to meet any of you (abusers) I would kill you I’m not pussy footing around this fact. Eventually we will all die. I’m no Islamic scholar but I know that there is a superior power the system is too perfect for it to be just nature or evolution. So all you people do whatever you please but in the end you are going to die

          Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women;
          and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.
          So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him?
          So we asked Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.

          Al-’Azl

          Al-’Azl, (العزل) also known as coitus interruptus, is the practice of having sexual intercourse with a woman but withdrawing the penis before ejaculation. Apparently al-’Azl with female captives and slaves was a pretty important topic for Muhammad and his companions as evidenced by the abundance of Hadith material on the subject.

          Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle .

          Sahih Bukhari 7:62:135
          Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interrupt us while the Quran was being revealed. Jabir added: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed.

          When RAPING your captive, it’s better if you do not pull out at the end

          THIS IS ISLAM

          Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah’s Apostle he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus(RAPE WITHOUT PREGNANCY)?” The Prophet said, “Do you really do that? It is better for you not to PULL OUT. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.”

          Sahih Bukhari 3:34:432
          Abu Said said, “We went with Allah’s Apostle, in the Ghazwa of Barli Al-Mustaliq and we captured some of the ‘Arabs as captives, and the long separation from our wives was pressing us hard and we wanted to practice coitus interruptus. We asked Allah’s Apostle (whether it was permissible). He said, “It is better for you not to do so. No soul, (that which Allah has) destined to exist, up to the Day of Resurrection, but will definitely come, into existence.”

          Sahih Bukhari 3:46:718

          We went out with Allah’s Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. ………
          We asked (him) about it and he said, “It is better for you not to PULL OUT, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist.”

          Sahih Bukhari 5:59:459

          Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured females and wanted sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they asked the Prophet about coitus interruptus. He said, “It is better that you leave it in, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection.” Qaza’a said, “I heard Abu Sa’id saying that the Prophet said, ‘No soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it.”

          Sahih Bukhari 9:93:506
          Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: We got female captives in the war booty and we used to do coitus interruptus with them. So we asked Allah’s Apostle about it and he said, “Do you really do that?” repeating the question thrice, “There is no soul that is destined to exist but will come into existence, till the Day of Resurrection.”

          Sahih Bukhari 7:62:137
          THE REASON WHY THERE ARE FEW VIRGINS LEFT!
          Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That while he was sitting with the Prophet a man from the Ansar came and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get slave girls from the war captives and we love property; what do you think about coitus interruptus?” Allah’s Apostle said, “Do you do that? It is better for you not to pull out, for there is no soul which Allah has ordained to come into existence but will be created.”

          Sahih Bukhari 8:77:600

Abu Said al-Khudri said, ‘We went out with the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, on the expedition to the Banu al-Mustaliq. We took some Arabs prisoner, and we desired the women as celibacy was hard for us. We wanted the ransom, so we wanted to practise coitus interruptus. We said, ‘Shall we practise coitus interruptus while the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is among us before we ask him?’ We asked him about that and he said, ‘You don’t have to not do it. There is no self which is to come into existence up to the Day of Rising but that it will come into existence.’ ”

          It’s okay to practice ‘azl when having sex with your slave-girl
          Narrated AbuSa’id al-Khudri: A man said: Apostle of Allah, I have a slave-girl and I withdraw the penis from her (while having intercourse), and I dislike that she becomes pregnant. I intend (by intercourse) what the men intend by it. The Jews say that withdrawing the penis (azl) is burying the living girls on a small scale. He (the Prophet) said: The Jews told a lie. If Allah intends to create it, you cannot turn it away.

          Abu Dawud 11:2166

          Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported that a man came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: I have a slave-girl who is our servant and she carries water for us and I have intercourse with her, but I do not want her to conceive. He said: Practise ‘azl, if you so like, but what is decreed for her will come to her. The person stayed back (for some time) and then came and said: The girl has become pregnant, whereupon he said: I told you what was decreed for her would come to her.

          Sahih Muslim 8:3383

          Your slave-girl is your field, so water it or leave it thirsty if you want
          Yahya related to me from Malik from Damra ibn Said al-Mazini from al-Hajjaj ibn Amr ibn Ghaziya that he was sitting with Zayd ibn Thabit when Ibn Fahd came to him. He was from the Yemen. He said, “Abu Said! I have slave-girls. None of the wives in my keep are more pleasing to me than them, and not all of them please me so much that I want a child by them, shall I then practise coitus interruptus?” Zayd ibn Thabit said, “Give an opinion, Hajjaj!” “I said, ‘May Allah forgive you! We sit with you in order to learn from you!’ He said, ‘Give an opinion! ‘I said, ‘She is your field, if you wish, water it, and if you wish, leave it thirsty. I heard that from Zayd.’ Zayd said, ‘He has spoken the truth.’ ”

          “You don’t need your slave-girl’s permission to practice ‘azl with her.”
          Yahya related to me from Malik from Humayd ibn Qays al-Makki that a man called Dhafif said that Ibn Abbas was asked about coitus interruptus. He called a slave-girl of his and said, “Tell them.” She was embarrassed. He said, “It is alright, and I do it myself.” Malik said, “A man does not practise coitus interruptus with a free woman unless she gives her permission. There is no harm in practising coitus interruptus with a slave-girl without her permission. Someone who has someone else’s slave-girl as a wife, does not practise coitus interruptus with her unless her people give him permission.”

Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Why do you do that? The person said: I fear harm to her child or her children. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (way peace be upon him) said: If that were harmful it would harm the Persians and the Greeks.

          Sahih Muslim 8:3394

          Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported: We took women captives, and we wanted to do ‘azl with them. We then asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) about it, and he said to us: Verily you do it, verily you do it, verily you do it, but the soul which has to be born until the Day of judgment must be born.

          Sahih Muslim 8:3373

          Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) (was asked if he had heard it himself), to which he said: Yes. (I heard) Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: There is no harm if you do not practise it, for it (the birth of the child) is something ordained (by Allah).

          Sahih Muslim 8:3374, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3375

          Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) was asked about ‘azl, whereupon he said: There is no harm if you do not do that, for it (the birth of the child) is something ordained. Muhammad (one of the narrators) said: (The words) La ‘alaykum (there is no harm) implies its Prohibition.

          Sahih Muslim 8:3376

          Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that mention was made of ‘azl in the presence of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) whereupon he said: Why do you practise it? They said: There is a man whose wife has to suckle the child, and if that person has a sexual intercourse with her (she may conceive) which he does not like, and there is another person who has a slave-girl and he has a sexual intercourse with her, but he does not like her to have conception so that she may not become Umm Walad, whereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: There is no harm if you do not do that, for that (the birth of the child) is something pre- ordained. Ibn ‘Aun said: I made a mention of this hadith to Hasan, and he said: By Allah, (it seems) as if there is upbraiding in it (for ‘azl).

          Sahih Muslim 8:3377, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3378 and Sahih Muslim 8:3379

          Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported: Mention was made about al-’azl in the presence of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), whereupon he said: Why any one of you practises it? (He did not say: One of you should not do it), for there is no created soul, whose creator is not Allah.

          Sahih Muslim 8:3380

          Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about ‘azl, whereupon he said: The child does not come from all the liquid (sermen) and when Allah intends to create anything nothing can prevent it (from coming into existence).

          Sahih Muslim 8:3381, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3382

The person then came (after some time) and said: Messenger of Allah, the slave-girl about whom I talked to you has conceived, whereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: I am the servant of Allah and His Messenger.

No slave-girl comes to me whose master confesses that he has had intercourse with her but that I connect her child to him, whether or not he has practised coitus interruptus or left off from intercourse with her.” Yahya said that he heard Malik say, “What is done in our community about an umm walad who commits a crime is that her master is liable for what she has done up to her value. He does not have to surrender her, and he cannot be made to bear more than her value for her crime.”

          STONED TO DEATH

          On October 30, 2008, the United Nations condemned the stoning to death of Aisha Duhulowa, a 13-year-old girl who had been gang-raped and then sentenced to death by a Sharia court for fornication (Zina). She was screaming and begging for mercy, but when some family members attempted to intervene, shots were fired by the Islamic militia and a baby was killed.

          Local Sharia courts in Bangladesh regularly punish raped minor girls and women by flogging and beating them with shoes.[1] Similar cases of punishing raped women are Mina v. the State, Bibi v. the State and Bahadur v. the State.[2] Sharia courts in Pakistan have punished thousands of raped women by long term imprisonment.[3]

          You might think that such horrific barbarity cannot be the real Sharia law; that it is a misapplication of the law by ignorant clergy. Sadly, neither is true.

          There is a traceable dynamic in Sharia Law that is bound to lead to this barbarity. And unless we abandon these laws we will never be able to emerge from this barbarity. It was a blunder that Muslim jurists included rape in the Hudood section of Sharia Law that deals with murder, bodily harm, apostasy, drinking, defamation, theft, adultery and highway robbery. But anyone who tried to change these laws ended up banging their heads against the wall. Mawdudi, the founding father of modern Political Islam, claims that even if all the world’s Muslims together wanted to make the slightest change in these laws, they would not be allowed to do so.[4]

          But change is necessary.

          Another key element of these laws is that only eye-witnesses are acceptable and no circumstantial evidence can be accepted.[5] Rape is included in the Dyat (monetary compensation for bodily harm) section of Sharia Law because it is considered as “Bodily Harm” or “Robbing Property” (chastity). This classification led jurists to create these laws:

          * A rapist is obliged to pay the victim the amount typically received as marriage payment to similar brides.[6]

          * “If the rapist cannot be punished for any reason he will pay the victim the amount equal to bride-money.”[7]

          As no other punishment is mentioned, the punishment of rape can be only financial compensation. But Jurists missed the point that rape is a crime of its own kind. It has a devastating psychological and social impact on raped women. They are shamed to death, socially outcast, unsuitable for marriage, bring shame on the family and in some countries become the victims of honor killing. Many raped women commit suicide in Muslim countries.

          The Quranic word “Zina” means sexual relation between a man and woman not married to each other. It is called adultery for married persons and fornication for unmarried ones. The Quran severely prohibits Zina. Muslim jurists also included rape in the category of Zina because in rape cases such sexual relations “between a man and woman not married to each other,” even though forced on the victim, have taken place. As rape is not mentioned in the Quran, the death sentence for rapists originated from the Prophet’s example: “Narrated Wa’il ibn Hujr: When a woman went out in the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him) for prayer, a man attacked her and overpowered (raped) her. …he said: Stone him to death”.[8]

          The laws are so clear about defining rape and the requirement for proof of rape that a judge has no option but punish the rape victims.
          When rape is caught or reported, “sex between a man and woman not married to each other” can be proven by testimony, physical evidences of bodily scars/bruises, torn clothing or pregnancy of the victim. Then the Sharia laws are enforced.
          Sharia Law: The rapist will be punished to death if force on the victim is proven.[9]
          Clear enough. But exactly how can “force on the victim” be proven? The answer must surely rank as one of the most insane and sexist laws in human history.

          (A) “Proof of Zina (adultery) or Zina Bil-Jabr (rape) liable to Hadd shall be one of the following:

          (a) The accused makes confession or
          (b) There are at least four Muslim adult male witnesses”[10]
          (B) “Proof of adultery or rape liable to Hadd shall be one of the following:
          (a) The accused makes confession, or
          (b) There are at least four Muslim adult male witnesses.”[11]
          (C) “Punishment will take place when Zina or rape have been proved by witness.”[12]
          (D) Sharia Law rejects the witness of women in Hudood cases.[13]
          (E) “The evidence of women is originally inadmissible on account of their weakness of understanding, want of memory and incapacity of governing.”[14]

          Because such “proofs” are almost impossible to obtain and because circumstantial evidence is not accepted, a rape cannot be proved as rape in a Sharia court. Instead, “sex outside marriage” is proved for the woman by her complaint or physical scars or torn cloths or pregnancy etc. Then the law of “Punishment for Sex Outside Marriage” i.e. stoning to death for married adulterers and flogging and exile for unmarried adulterers are applied to the rape-victims.[15] On the other hand, a rapist has simply to deny the crime and go scott free. As the New York Times reports: “Ms. Lawal, a divorced woman, identified a man as the father of her child. The man denied the charge, swore on the Koran, and was deemed innocent by the trial court. No one suggested DNA tests.”[16]
          But DNA tests have no place in Hudood Laws either. The BBC reported that Zafran Bibi of Pakistan “went to the police to register a case of rape, but she herself was instead sentenced to death for having an adulterous affair.”[17] About conducting a DNA test to identify the rapist, the Dawn reports: “Justice Ali Nawaz Chauhan of the Lahore High Court has observed that the DNA test is not acceptable as evidence to establish the offence of Zina under the Hudood laws which require a direct testimony in such cases..”[18]

          This is how Sharia Law punishes raped women. The sources of these laws span the period from the 7th century to recent times. Some Muslim countries have withdrawn from the application of these laws, but these laws are still alive and active in many Muslim societies. Many Muslims talk about it, but there has never been a concerted effort to end this barbarity. It is true that many, including the UN’s Children Fund, have expressed alarm over the plight of Aisha Duhulowa, but history tells us that merely condemning these acts or calling on the humanity of the perpetrators has never stopped the violent soldiers of God. The solution can only been found by raising the awareness and opposition of the entire world, irrespective of religion.

          Muslims must reject this barbarity or risk Islam being seen as the criminal. The screams of little Aisha Duhulowa will echo around the world until this is done.

          HOW A WOMAN MUST PROVE RAPE
          Question:
          Why are rape victims often punished by Islamic courts as adulterers?
          Summary Answer:
          Under Islamic law, rape can only be proven if the rapist confesses or if there are four male witnesses. Women who allege rape, without the benefit of the act having been witnessed by four men who subsequently develop a conscience, are actually confessing to having sex. If they or the accused happens to be married, then it is considered to be adultery.
          The Qur’an:
          Qur’an (2:282) – Establishes that a woman’s testimony is worth only half that of a man’s in court (there is no “he said/she said” gridlock in Islam).
          Qur’an (24:4) – “And those who accuse free women then do not bring four witnesses (to adultery), flog them…” Strictly speaking, this verse addresses adultery (revealed at the very time that Muhammad’s favorite wife was being accused of adultery on the basis of only three witnesses, coincidentally enough) however it is a part of the theological underpinning of the Sharia rule.
          Qur’an (24:13) – “Why did they not bring four witnesses of it? But as they have not brought witnesses they are liars before Allah.”
          Qur’an (2:223) – “Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will…” There is no such thing as rape in marriage, as a man is permitted unrestricted sexual access to his wives.
          From the Hadith:
          Bukhari (5:59:462) – The background for the Qur’anic requirement of four witnesses to adultery. Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, was accused of cheating [on her polygamous husband]. Three witnesses corroborated the event, but Muhammad apparently did not want to believe it, and so established the arbitrary rule that four witnesses are required.
          Additional Notes:
          Rape is virtually impossible to prove under strict Islamic law (Sharia). If the man claims that the act was consensual sex, there is very little that the woman can do to refute this. Islam places the burden of avoiding sexual encounters of any sort on the woman.
          A recent fatwa from a mainstream Islamic site echoes this rule and even chides a victim of incest for complaining when she has no “evidence”:
          However, it is not permissible to accuse the father of rape without evidence. Indeed, the Sharee’ah put some special conditions for proving Zina (fornication or adultery) that are not required in case of other crimes. The crime of Zina is not confirmed except if the fornicator admits it, or with the testimony of four trustworthy men, while the testimony of women is not accepted.
          Hence, the statement of this girl or the statement of her mother in itself does not Islamically prove anything against the father, especially that the latter denies it.
          Therefore, if this daughter has no evidence to prove that her accusations are true, she should not have claimed that she was raped by her father and she should not have taken him to the court. (IslamWeb.net, Image)
          Since it is incredibly unlikely that a child molester will violate his victim in front of “four trustworthy men”, Islamic law amounts to a free pass for sexual predators.
          Islamic law rejects forensic evidence (such as DNA) in favor of testimony. An interesting situation thus sometimes develops in cases where a victim alleges rape and the man denies that sex even took place. In the absence of four male witnesses, rape cannot be proven. The woman’s testimony then becomes a “confession” of adultery. She can be stoned, even though the male is unpunished, since he never “confessed” to a sexual act!
          Some clerics blame rape on the woman. Australian Sheik Feiz recently said a rape victim “has no one to blame but herself. She displayed her beauty to the entire world… to tease man and appeal to his carnal nature.”
          Also, there can be no such thing as rape in marriage, even if the husband has to hit the wife in order to bring about her submission. Another recent fatwa reminds a woman, she “does not have the right to refuse her husband, rather she must respond to his request every time he calls her.” (Islam Q&A, Fatwa No. 33597).
          Keep in mind that most Muslim countries do not operate under strict Islamic law, but rather under legal codes imported from the West. Therefore rape victims in these countries can and often do receive justice under more reasonable standards of proof.
          WATERMELONS & CUCUMBERS
          “If a man makes a hole in a watermelon, or a piece of dough, or a leather skin, or a statue, and has sex with it, then this is the same as what we have said about other types of masturbation [i.e., that it is halaal in the same circumstances given before, such as being on a journey].
          In fact, it is easier than masturbating with one’s hand”.
          “If a woman does not have a husband, and her lust becomes strong, then some of our scholars say: It is permissible for the woman to take an akranbij, which is a piece of leather worked until it becomes shaped like a penis, and insert it in herself. She may also use a cucumber”.
          Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129
          A Muslim Shia website notes: “Maybe this is another reason why ‘Umar the Khalifa never went on jihad: somebody had to stay behind and organize the cucumber distribution.”
          WANKING JIHAD!

          Companions of Muhammad masturbated during Jihad
          “If a man is torn between continued desire or releasing it, and if this man does not have a wife or he has a slave-girl but he does not marry, then if a man is overwhelmed by desire, and he fears that he will suffer because of this (someone like a prisoner, or a traveller, or a pauper), then it is permissible for him to masturbate, and Ahmad (ibn Hanbal) is explicit on this.

          WANKING JIHAD!

          2. Furthermore, it is narrated that the Companions of the Prophet (s) used to masturbate while they were on military expeditions or travelling”.
          Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129
          Muttaqi (God-fearing) monkeys
          Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun: During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them.
          Sahih Bukhari 5:58:188
          ALLAH’S ARITHMETIC:
          54 INTO 9 GOES NICELY

          THE WANKING PERVERT FROM MECCA

          A marriage is engaged in by 2 consenting adults.
          Do you really believe a 6 year old child would desire to marry a 51 year old man?
          Do you think that is what she would choose?
          Do you think a 9 year old girl would desire to have sex with a 54 year old?

          The thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the most disturbing thoughts that makes us cringe as it reminds us of pedophilia and the most despicable people. It is difficult to accept that the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca married Aisha when she was 6-years-old and WANKED BETWEEN HER THIGHS FOR 3 YEARS and consummated/RAPED her when she was 9. He was then, 54 years old.

          HOW TO THIGH & GET HIGH

          Now let us see how thighing is practiced on a female child & who began this evil practice. According to an official Fatwa issued in Saudi Arabia, the prophet Muhammad began to practice thighing his child-bride, Aisha when she was 6 years old until she reached 9 years of age (Fatwa No. 31409). The hadith mentioned the prophet Muhammad started performing literal sex with Aisha ONLY when she reached the age of 9 (Sahih al-Bukhari, book 62, hadith No. 89).

          Muslim scholars collectively agree, a child becomes an adult, available for sexual intercourse as soon as she reaches the age of nine. Likewise, the Shari’a allows any of the faithful to marry a six-year-old child.

          According to the fatwa, the prophet Muhammad could not have sex with his fiancée, Aisha when she was six due to her small size & age. However, the fatwa said that at age six, he would put his penis between her thighs and massage it gently because he did not want to harm her.

          Imagine a man of 51 removing the clothes of a 6-year-old girl and slipping his erect penis between her thighs, rubbing her until he ejaculated and his semen ran down her thighs. To this day, this is considered a benevolent act on the part of the adult male “not wanting to harm her.” What harm could be inflicted upon a young girl mentally and emotionally if not a grown man showing her his penis and stripping her of her clothes and rubbing his male organ between her legs?

          Of course the twisted mind that does such an evil to a female child, would not hesitate to ejaculate on her body. And if this sexually perverted evil frame of mind committed such an act upon a child, the pedophile would not stop at ejaculating on her. His evil desire would go further and rape the child before she was a mature adult. This is exactly what Muhammad did to Aisha when she was yet a child of 9.

          Before she reached puberty, he began to have sex with her. Let us see what the fatwa said about the prophet of Islam and his child-bride, Aisha.”Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the one after whom there is no [further] prophet. After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwas (religious decrees) reviewed the question presented to the grand Mufti Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Shamari, with reference number 1809 issued on 3/8/1421(Islamic calendar).

          The inquirer asked the following: ‘It has become wide spread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufakhathat of the children (mufakhathat literally translated means “placing between the thighs of children” which means placing the male erected penis between the thighs of a child). What is the opinion of scholars knowing full well that the prophet, the peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, also practiced the “thighing” of Aisha – the mother of believers ?’

          After the committee studied the issue, they gave the following reply: ‘It has not been the practice of the Muslims throughout the centuries to resort to this unlawful practice that has come to our countries from pornographic movies that the kofar (infidels) and enemies of Islam send. As for the Prophet, peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, thighing his fiancée Aisha. She was six years of age and he could not have intercourse with her due to her small age.

          That is why the prophet peace and prayers of Allah be upon him placed his penis between her thighs and massaged it lightly, as the apostle of Allah had control of his penis not like other believers'” (Fatwa No. 31409).

          Thighing of children is practiced in many Arab and Muslim countries, notably in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and the Gulf countries. Also evil practices like altamatu’a bil almuka’aba (pleasure from sexual contact with her breasts), altamatu’a bil alsagirah (pleasure from sexual contact with a baby girl), altamatu’a bil alradi’ah, (pleasure from sexual contact with a suckling female infant), (Reported by Baharini Women’s Rights Activist, Ghada Jamshir)

          AISHA WASHING SEMEN FROM MUHAMMAD’S CLOTHES

          From the Hadith of Bukhari:

          Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

          Narrated ‘Aisha:

          I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

          Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

          Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

          I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

          Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232:

          Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:

          I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them.

          Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233:

          Narrated ‘Aisha:

          I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them.

          From the Hadith of Bukhari:

          Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

          Narrated ‘Aisha:

          I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

          Volume 1, Book 4, Number 230:

          Narrated ‘Aisha:

          as above (229).

          Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

          Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

          I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

          Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232:

          Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:

          I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them.

          Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233:

          Narrated ‘Aisha:

          I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them.
          MUHAMMAD RESERVED BABY AISHA FOR HIMSELF, BECAUSE SHE WAS A VIRGIN & HE WANTED A VIRGIN.
          Sahih al-Bukhari, volume 7, book 62, number 17
          Narrated jabir bin ‘abdullah:
          When I got married, Allah’s apostle said to me, “what type of lady have you married?” I replied, “I have married a matron.” he said, “why, don’t you have a liking for the virgins and for fondling them?” Jabir also said: Allah’s apostle said, “why didn’t you marry a young girl so that you might play with her and she with you?”
          Hence, Muhammad’s comments indicate that his reason for marrying Aisha while a young virgin is so that he could fondle and sexually play with her!
          AISHA WAS NOT THE ONLY BABY GIRL MUHAMMAD FANTASIZED ABOUT
          In the classic history, Sirat Rasul Allah (The Life of Muhammad) by Ibn Ishaq, there is an account in which Muhammad expressed a marital interest in a crawling baby. This event seems to have occurred around the time of the battle of of Badr, when he was about 55 years old. He had married Aisha two years earlier, when he was 53 years of age.
          (Suhayli, ii. 79: in the Riwaya of Yunus i. I. Recorded that the apostle saw her (Ummu’lfadl) when she was a baby crawling before him and said,
          ‘if she grows up and I am still alive I will marry her.’
          but he died before she grew up and sufyan b. Al-aswad b. ‘Abdu’l-asad al-Makhzumi married her and she bore him rizq and lubab… [Ibn Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad, Karachi, p. 311]
          Muhammad saw Um Habiba the daughter of Abbas while she was fatim (age of nursing) and he said, “if she grows up while I am still alive, I will marry her.” (Musnad Ahmad, number 25636)
          MUHAMMAD WOULD BATH & FONDLE AISHA
          Bukhari (6:298) – Muhammad would take a bath with the little Aisha and fondle her.
          Narrated ‘Aisha:
          The prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me. While in itikaf, he used to bring his head near me and I would wash it while I used to be in my periods (menses).
          MUHAMMAD CONSUMMATED HIS MARRIAGE TO BABY AISHA, WHEN SHE WAS 9
          Sunaan abu Dawud: book 11, number 2161:
          Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin:
          I and the apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to lie in one cloth at night while I was menstruating. If anything from me smeared him, he washed the same place (that was smeared), and did not wash beyond it. If anything from him smeared his clothe, he washed the same place and did not wash beyond that, and prayed with it (i.e. The clothe).
          MUHAMMAD WOULD SEXUALLY ABUSE HIS WIVES
          Bukhari (6:300) – Muhammad’s wives had to be available for the prophet’s fondling even when they were having their menstrual period.
          Bukhari volume 1, book 6, number 299:
          Narrated ‘Abdur-rahman bin al-Aswad:
          …(on the authority of his father) ‘Aisha said: “Whenever Allah’s apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he used to order her to put on an izar and start fondling her.” ‘Aisha added, “None of you could control his sexual desires as the prophet could.”
          WOMEN ARE SEXUAL OBJECTS
          Allah promoted this abusive sexual behavior:
          “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” [Koran 2:223]
          Koran (2:223) likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills. In this verse, Allah also gives divine sanction for anal sex.
          According to Islam, Muhammad is the perfection of humanity and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct. He had sex with Aisha at the age of nine, which amounts to rape of a minor. He also left behind an enduring legacy for aged Muslim men to fulfill their carnal desires contrary to natural law and to the life-long devastation of young girls.

          ALLAH PROMOTES PEDOPHILIA
          Quran 65.4 “and those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘iddah (prescribed divorce period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses [(i.e. They are still immature) their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death] . And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is until they deliver (their burdens) (give birth) and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to him, he will make his matter easy for him.”
          Sura (65:4) lays down rules for divorce and sets the prescribed period for divorce. It clearly says, Muslim men can marry (and divorce) little girls who have not yet reached menstruation age. This means that Muslim men were allowed to marry baby girls. This is the eternal word of god. This is an eternal law of Allah. All Muslims must believe in this teaching. Otherwise, they are no longer Muslims but apostates of Islam.

          ALLAH ORDAINS RAPE
          “All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” 4:24
          You can have sex with slaves women captured in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like).
          Muhammad established an appalling precedent for abuse of young girls which is continued to be nurtured by the Muslim faithful. For example, Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran gave a fatwa about Quran 65.4:
          “A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.”

          • Lucky, talk to any Muslim woman and ask her why she likes Islam. Why don’t you ask our mothers, sisters???????

            They are Muslims because it is the ONLY religion that has MORALITY and respect towards women. Who are the biggest drug dealers? The biggest rapists? Murderers?
            Robbers? Prostitutes? Porn body exposers? Gay-ship and homo practitioners…which countries…Islamic or non-Islamic???

            Why don’t you put in your head that Islam has many good things about it…better than any other religion…and that is why it is the Number ONE religion in the world today!!

            Muhammad engaged in NO slavery…and you keep repeating Hadiths which are ALL fake!!

          • YOU DUMB PLUM HAVE GOT TO BE THE GREATEST CRETIN IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD! MARRIAGE IN ISLAM: A WHOREHOUSE FOR MEN, A JAILHOUSE FOR WOMEN In the Quran, there is no word for marriage. The only word used is nikah, which means ‘having sex’ or ‘sexual intercourse’ in Arabic. WIVES IN ISLAM According to Quran a wife is some one with whom you have sex with. Different types of wives are: 1. A paid wife with an open ended contract (House wife) 2. A paid wife with a fixed term contract (Muta wife) 3. A paid visitation only wife with a visitation contract (Misyar wife) 4. Slave girl (bought gifted or captured) The price paid for vagina is called Mahr. Thus according to Quran a contract wife is like a whore who gets paid for her vagina called Mahr while a slave girl wife is like a whore who does not get paid a Mahr for her vagina. Q 4.24: Seek out wives by means of your wealth, and give those with whom ye have cohabited their price. APPROACH HER IN ANY WAY YOU WANT A wife has no say in the way the husband approaches her for enjoyment. Prophet said (Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 62, Number 81): “you are given the right to enjoy the women’s private parts”. Q 2.223: Your women are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth (have sexual relations in any manners), when or how you will. (trs. Hilali & Khan) WIVES CAN BE DUMPED AT WILL Like a client can dump a whore at will and pick up another one, the Quran says a husband can dump his wife and get another one. Q 4.20. If you want to exchange one wife for another than don’t take back any part of what you paid her. Hadiths say that Hasan Bin Ali, Prophet Mohammad’s beloved grand son, who died young, went through more than 70 wives in his short life. The husband is like a client of a whore. Once a wife is paid Mahr she is obliged to submit her private parts 24/7 to him. WHORES CAN DUMP A CLIENT, MUSLIM WIVES CANNOT DUMP HER HUSBAND If a whore changes her mind and does not want sex she can. She can return the money and kick him out. However, in Islam a wife does not have that liberty. Once the Mahr is paid her vagina is his to enjoy. She must submit to him any time he gets an urge. Ibn Majah 1854: “Prophet said if he asks her to surrender herself to him for sexual intercourse on a camel’s back, she should not refuse him even on a camel’s saddle.” However in our prophet’s case, whenever he had a huge urge (erection) and his child-wife got scared and ran away during foreplay, he had to catch her, bribe her with a new doll and drag her back to bed. SAYING NO COSTS ISLAMIC WIVES WHIPPING AND DIVINE CURSING If a wife refuses sex to a husband Allah ordered husbands to give her a good whipping. Quran 4.34: Scourge (whip) your wife if she does not obey. And ordered angels to curse her all night. Bukhari 4.54.460: “If a husband calls his wife to his bed for sex and if she , he angels will curse her till morning”. A WHIPPED WIFE MUST BE PUT ON AN INJURED LIST Once a wife is whipped badly, she cannot lie down and have sex without severe pain, seriously limiting the ways a husband can approach her thus violating aya 2.223. Our prophet told the momins to postpone sex with her. Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 132: The Prophet said, “When you flog your wife like you flog your slave then postpone the sexual intercourse.” VAGINA CONTRACTS OPEN-ENDED CONTRACT (REGULAR WIFE) A n open ended contract is signed for a negotiated price for an undetermined period. In addition wife gets boarding lodging and clothing. However if the husband decides to dump her, he can break the contract verbally and kick her out (4.20) any time he wants to but he cannot get any money back he paid for her vagina even if he used it for five minutes. Q 4.20: if you replace a wife by another, you cannot get any part of Mahr back even if it was a large sum. A broken contract cannot be renewed until the her vagina is used by another momin and is then released (halala). Q 2.230: And if he has divorced her, then she is not lawful unto him thereafter until she has sex with another husband. And if he has divorced her then she is not lawful unto him thereafter until she has married another husband. Then, if the other husband divorces her, it is no sin on both of them that they reunite. On the other hand a wife has no right to break a contract similarly. She can only break it if she can prove him to be impotent or insane in a court of law. SHORT-TERM CONTRACT or MUTA WIFE A man can sign a contract with a woman to use her vagina for a pre-determined period at negotiated price. The contract can be renewed without the requirement of interim use of her vagina by another man. VISITATION CONTRACT (MISYAR WIFE) In this contract a husband visits a misyar wife for sexual pleasure and pays her for each visit. The husband does not have to provide her boarding and lodging. WAYS TO ACQUIRE SLAVE GIRLS A slave girl doesn’t get paid Mahr for her vagina. She is acquired as a free gift (Maria was a free gift for Prophet from Egyptian king), bought from another owner (sometimes prophet took away pretty girls for free from their owners*) or captured after killing her father or husband (prophet took 20% of the captured women from a raid booty). Sahih Muslim, Book 019, Number 4345: It has been narrated on the authority of Salama (b. al-Akwa’) who said: We fought against the Fazara and Abu Bakr was the commander over us. Abu Bakr bestowed a young girl upon me as a prize. She was one of the prettiest girls in Arabia. So we arrived in Medina. I had not yet disrobed her (had not have sex with her) when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) met me in the street and said: Give me that girl, O Salama. I said: Messenger of Allah, she has fascinated me. I had not yet disrobed her. When on the next day, the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) met me again in the street (Salama was parading the young beauty to make other jihadis jealous). Prophet said: O Salama, give me that girl, may God bless your father. I said: She is for you. Messenger of Allah! By Allah, I have not yet disrobed her. SLAVE GIRLS ARE THE BEST BARGAINS IN ISLAM Quranic ayas 4.3, 4.24, 23.6, 33.50 & 70.30 allow a Muslim man to have sex with slave girls. A slave girl can be bought or acquired by killing infidels and capturing their wives and daughters. Slave girls are the best bargain Islam has to offer to Muslim men but unfortunately Muslims are denying themselves this great reward from Allah just to appease infidel west. The uses of a slave-girl are: 1. They provide sex 24/7. 2. They are used as house maid 3. Offered as sex partners to overnight house guests. 4. Offered as gifts to family and friends for a few days or for good*. (*The History of Tabari, vol 8, pge 29-30: From his share of captive women, prophet gave his son-in-law, Ali a slave girl, Raytah bt Hilal to enjoy her at his will. He also presented Uthman b. Affan, his son-in-law, another slave girl Zainab b. Hayan, and bestowed another girl (name unknown) to his father in-law Omar Ibn Khattab. Omar gave that girl to his son Abdullah. Most of Prophet’s other elite companions received slave girls as gifts). 5. Sold to raise cash, if the need be. SLAVE GIRLS ARE INCOME PROPERTIES Islam is the only religion which allows momins to pimp the bodies of their slave girls for side incomes. Thus Quran taught 1400 years back what modern day pimps are learning now, that is to control many prostitutes and get rich on their income. However Islam is a very compassionate religion. While many pimps force their prostitutes to sell their bodies, Islam prefers that momins avoid coercion. Q 24.33. Do not compel your slave girls to prostitution to drive income from her body if they are not willing. But of course Allah is a forgiving God. In case momins do beat them up and force them to prostitute, Allah said he will forgive them. Q 24.33. (continued) But if you did force her to prostitute Allah can forgive you because he is forgiving and compassionate. ALLAH’S ARITHMETIC: 54 INTO 9 GOES NICELY THE WANKING PERVERT FROM MECCA A marriage is engaged in by 2 consenting adults. Do you really believe a 6 year old child would desire to marry a 51 year old man? Do you think that is what she would choose? Do you think a 9 year old girl would desire to have sex with a 54 year old? The thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the most disturbing thoughts that makes us cringe as it reminds us of pedophilia and the most despicable people. It is difficult to accept that the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca married Aisha when she was 6-years-old and WANKED BETWEEN HER THIGHS FOR 3 YEARS and consummated/RAPED her when she was 9. He was then, 54 years old. HOW TO THIGH & GET HIGH Now let us see how thighing is practiced on a female child & who began this evil practice. According to an official Fatwa issued in Saudi Arabia, the prophet Muhammad began to practice thighing his child-bride, Aisha when she was 6 years old until she reached 9 years of age (Fatwa No. 31409). The hadith mentioned the prophet Muhammad started performing literal sex with Aisha ONLY when she reached the age of 9 (Sahih al-Bukhari, book 62, hadith No. 89). Muslim scholars collectively agree, a child becomes an adult, available for sexual intercourse as soon as she reaches the age of nine. Likewise, the Shari’a allows any of the faithful to marry a six-year-old child. According to the fatwa, the prophet Muhammad could not have sex with his fiancée, Aisha when she was six due to her small size & age. However, the fatwa said that at age six, he would put his penis between her thighs and massage it gently because he did not want to harm her. Imagine a man of 51 removing the clothes of a 6-year-old girl and slipping his erect penis between her thighs, rubbing her until he ejaculated and his semen ran down her thighs. To this day, this is considered a benevolent act on the part of the adult male “not wanting to harm her.” What harm could be inflicted upon a young girl mentally and emotionally if not a grown man showing her his penis and stripping her of her clothes and rubbing his male organ between her legs? Of course the twisted mind that does such an evil to a female child, would not hesitate to ejaculate on her body. And if this sexually perverted evil frame of mind committed such an act upon a child, the pedophile would not stop at ejaculating on her. His evil desire would go further and rape the child before she was a mature adult. This is exactly what Muhammad did to Aisha when she was yet a child of 9. Before she reached puberty, he began to have sex with her. Let us see what the fatwa said about the prophet of Islam and his child-bride, Aisha.”Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the one after whom there is no [further] prophet. After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwas (religious decrees) reviewed the question presented to the grand Mufti Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Shamari, with reference number 1809 issued on 3/8/1421(Islamic calendar). The inquirer asked the following: ‘It has become wide spread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufakhathat of the children (mufakhathat literally translated means “placing between the thighs of children” which means placing the male erected penis between the thighs of a child). What is the opinion of scholars knowing full well that the prophet, the peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, also practiced the “thighing” of Aisha – the mother of believers ?’ After the committee studied the issue, they gave the following reply: ‘It has not been the practice of the Muslims throughout the centuries to resort to this unlawful practice that has come to our countries from pornographic movies that the kofar (infidels) and enemies of Islam send. As for the Prophet, peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, thighing his fiancée Aisha. She was six years of age and he could not have intercourse with her due to her small age. That is why the prophet peace and prayers of Allah be upon him placed his penis between her thighs and massaged it lightly, as the apostle of Allah had control of his penis not like other believers\'” (Fatwa No. 31409). Thighing of children is practiced in many Arab and Muslim countries, notably in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and the Gulf countries. Also evil practices like altamatu’a bil almuka’aba (pleasure from sexual contact with her breasts), altamatu’a bil alsagirah (pleasure from sexual contact with a baby girl), altamatu’a bil alradi’ah, (pleasure from sexual contact with a suckling female infant), (Reported by Baharini Women’s Rights Activist, Ghada Jamshir) AISHA WASHING SEMEN FROM MUHAMMAD’S CLOTHES From the Hadith of Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229: Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible). Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231: Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar: I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ” Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232: Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun: I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them. Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233: Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them. From the Hadith of Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229: Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible). Volume 1, Book 4, Number 230: Narrated ‘Aisha: as above (229). Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231: Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar: I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ” Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232: Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun: I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them. Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233: Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them. MUHAMMAD RESERVED BABY AISHA FOR HIMSELF, BECAUSE SHE WAS A VIRGIN & HE WANTED A VIRGIN. Sahih al-Bukhari, volume 7, book 62, number 17 Narrated jabir bin ‘abdullah: When I got married, Allah’s apostle said to me, “what type of lady have you married?” I replied, “I have married a matron.” he said, “why, don’t you have a liking for the virgins and for fondling them?” Jabir also said: Allah’s apostle said, “why didn’t you marry a young girl so that you might play with her and she with you?” Hence, Muhammad’s comments indicate that his reason for marrying Aisha while a young virgin is so that he could fondle and sexually play with her! AISHA WAS NOT THE ONLY BABY GIRL MUHAMMAD FANTASIZED ABOUT In the classic history, Sirat Rasul Allah (The Life of Muhammad) by Ibn Ishaq, there is an account in which Muhammad expressed a marital interest in a crawling baby. This event seems to have occurred around the time of the battle of of Badr, when he was about 55 years old. He had married Aisha two years earlier, when he was 53 years of age. (Suhayli, ii. 79: in the Riwaya of Yunus i. I. Recorded that the apostle saw her (Ummu’lfadl) when she was a baby crawling before him and said, ‘if she grows up and I am still alive I will marry her.’ but he died before she grew up and sufyan b. Al-aswad b. ‘Abdu’l-asad al-Makhzumi married her and she bore him rizq and lubab… [Ibn Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad, Karachi, p. 311] Muhammad saw Um Habiba the daughter of Abbas while she was fatim (age of nursing) and he said, “if she grows up while I am still alive, I will marry her.” (Musnad Ahmad, number 25636) MUHAMMAD WOULD BATH & FONDLE AISHA Bukhari (6:298) – Muhammad would take a bath with the little Aisha and fondle her. Narrated ‘Aisha: The prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me. While in itikaf, he used to bring his head near me and I would wash it while I used to be in my periods (menses). MUHAMMAD CONSUMMATED HIS MARRIAGE TO BABY AISHA, WHEN SHE WAS 9 Sunaan abu Dawud: book 11, number 2161: Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin: I and the apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to lie in one cloth at night while I was menstruating. If anything from me smeared him, he washed the same place (that was smeared), and did not wash beyond it. If anything from him smeared his clothe, he washed the same place and did not wash beyond that, and prayed with it (i.e. The clothe). MUHAMMAD WOULD SEXUALLY ABUSE HIS WIVES Bukhari (6:300) – Muhammad’s wives had to be available for the prophet’s fondling even when they were having their menstrual period. Bukhari volume 1, book 6, number 299: Narrated ‘Abdur-rahman bin al-Aswad: …(on the authority of his father) ‘Aisha said: “Whenever Allah’s apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he used to order her to put on an izar and start fondling her.” ‘Aisha added, “None of you could control his sexual desires as the prophet could.” WOMEN ARE SEXUAL OBJECTS Allah promoted this abusive sexual behavior: “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” [Koran 2:223] Koran (2:223) likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills. In this verse, Allah also gives divine sanction for anal sex. According to Islam, Muhammad is the perfection of humanity and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct. He had sex with Aisha at the age of nine, which amounts to rape of a minor. He also left behind an enduring legacy for aged Muslim men to fulfill their carnal desires contrary to natural law and to the life-long devastation of young girls. ALLAH PROMOTES PEDOPHILIA Quran 65.4 “and those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘iddah (prescribed divorce period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses [(i.e. They are still immature) their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death] . And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is until they deliver (their burdens) (give birth) and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to him, he will make his matter easy for him.” Sura (65:4) lays down rules for divorce and sets the prescribed period for divorce. It clearly says, Muslim men can marry (and divorce) little girls who have not yet reached menstruation age. This means that Muslim men were allowed to marry baby girls. This is the eternal word of god. This is an eternal law of Allah. All Muslims must believe in this teaching. Otherwise, they are no longer Muslims but apostates of Islam. ALLAH ORDAINS RAPE “All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” 4:24 You can have sex with slaves women captured in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like). Muhammad established an appalling precedent for abuse of young girls which is continued to be nurtured by the Muslim faithful. For example, Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran gave a fatwa about Quran 65.4: “A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.” ISLAMIC CLERIC CONFIRMS ALL SUNI MUSLIM MEN ARE SODOMITES You know how some people insult Muslims by calling them crude names that are the equivalents of sodomites and bestialists (butt- and goat-f**kers)? It turns out at least the sodomite insult is true! We have it straight from the mouth of none other than a Muslim cleric — a London-based Shiite cleric named Yasser Habib. ‘PERFUMED GARDEN’ by Abu Nuwas: O the joy of sodomy! So now be sodomites, you Arabs. Turn not away from it– therein is wondrous pleasure. Take some coy lad with kiss-curls twisting on his temple and ride as he stands like some gazelle standing to her mate. A lad whom all can see girt with sword and belt not like your whore who has to go veiled. Make for smooth-faced boys and do your very best to mount them, for women are the mounts of the devils THIS IS REAL MOHAMMEDANISM: Surah 8:69: “But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good.” (Yusuf Ali) ISLAMIC QUESTION & ANSWER, ONLINE WITH MUFTI EBRAHIM DESAI, SOUTH AFRICA, ASK THE IMAM: “It may, superficially, appear distasteful to copulate with a woman who is not a man’s legal wife, but once Shariah makes something lawful, we have to accept it as lawful, whether it appeals to our taste, or not; and whether we know its underlying wisdom or not.” ALL SUNNI MUSLIMS ARE SODOMITES Satan Attends Every Childbirth; He Touches Every Infant Except for Mary and her Son Jesus, all babies cry during their birth, because Satan touches them… (Sahih Bukhari, 4.55.641) Whenever a child is born, Satan pricks it; that is why the child cries. Only Mary and Jesus were not pricked by Satan…(Sahih Muslim, 30.5837, 5838) Say prayer during sexual intercourse, and Satan will not touch your child…(Sahih Bukhari, 4.54.503 ALL SUNNI MUSLIMS FINGER FC-KED BY SATAN AT BIRTH In a broadcast on the UK’s Fadak TV on May 24, 2012, Habib calmly and dispassionately asserts that all non-Shiite males — especially the Shiites’ Muslim rivals, the Sunnis — are sodomized at birth by the devil, and grow up to become “passive homosexuals”, i.e., the “bottom” of a homosexual pair who is penetrated in anal sex. EVEN MUTT & HIS COMPANIONS Islamic cleric confirms Muslim men really are sodomites You know how some people insult Muslims by calling them crude names that are the equivalents of sodomites and bestialists (butt- and goat-f**kers)? It turns out at least the sodomite insult is true! We have it straight from the mouth of none other than a Muslim cleric — a London-based Shiite cleric named Yasser Habib. In a broadcast on the UK’s Fadak TV on May 24, 2012, Habib calmly and dispassionately asserts that all non-Shiite males — especially the Shiites’ Muslim rivals, the Sunnis — are sodomized at birth by the devil, and grow up to become “passive homosexuals”, i.e., the “bottom” of a homosexual pair who is penetrated in anal sex. TRANSCRIPTION OF YASSER HABIB: “Anyone who consents to being called ‘Emir of the Believers’ is a passive homosexual. Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, for example, who willingly assumed this title, was, without a doubt, a passive homosexual. The same goes for the caliphs Othman Ibn Affan, Muawiyya, Yazid, and the rules and sultans of the Umayyad and Abbasid dynasties, as well as some of the rulers and sultans of our day and age. For example, the king of Morocco bears this title. This is how you know that he is a passive homosexual. This is in addition to the evidence revealed by Western media, which showed that the current king of Morocco is indeed a passive homosexual who belongs to the homosexual community. This was leaked from his palace by his assistants, his servants, and his ‘boys,’ whom he would penetrate and who would penetrate him. They fled to Europe, sought asylum, and exposed all this. Cleric Yasser Habib exposes Kalifa Umar as a Sodomite It is told (in the hadith) that Umar Ibn Al-Khattab had an anal disease, which could be cured only by semen. One should know that this is a well-known medical condition, which is also mentioned in sacred texts. Someone who, God forbid, has been penetrated in the anus, a worm grows within him, due to the semen discharged in him… A disease develops in his anus, and as a result, he cannot calm down, unless. he is penetrated again and again. The Shiites are undoubtedly protected from this disease, and from committing this abominable and hideous act. As for the Nasibis (who hated the prophet Muhammad’s family), they are definitely afflicted with this homosexuality. One of the devils is present at the birth of every human being. If Allah knows that the newborn is one of our Shiites, He fends off that devil, who cannot harm the newborn. But if the newborn is not one of our Shiites, the devil inserts his index finger into the anus of the newborn, who thus becomes a passive homosexual. If the newborn is not a Shiite, the devil inserts his index finger into this newborn’s anus, and when he grows up, he becomes a passive homosexual. If the newborn is a female, the devil inserts his index finger into her vagina, and she becomes a whore. At that moment, the newborn cries loudly, as he comes out of his mother’s womb. Note that some children cry normally at birth, while others cry loudly and incessantly. You should know that this is the work of that devil, according to this narration.” Islam is NOT a religion, but an insane political system and sex cult populated by the severely mentally impaired.” When cleric Yasser Habib “says ‘passive homosexual’, he is referring to the receptive, submissive, female-equivalent partner. Dominant, inserting male homosexual activity is universally accepted in Islam. He has no problem with that. It’s grown men ‘catching’ that he has a problem with.” ANIMAL LOVING MUSLIMS: ISLAM & ZOOPHILIA Zoophilia, from the Greek Ζωον (zôon, “animal”) and φιλία (philia, “friendship” or “love”), is a paraphilia, defined as an affinity or sexual attraction by a human to a non-human animal. Such individuals are called zoophiles. The more recent terms zoosexual and zoosexuality describe the full spectrum of human/animal orientation. A separate term, bestiality (more common in mainstream usage and frequently but incorrectly seen as a synonym; often misspelled as “beastiality”), refers to human/animal sexual activity. To avoid confusion about the meaning of zoophilia — which may refer to the affinity/attraction, paraphilia, or sexual activity — this article uses zoophilia for the former, and zoosexual activity for the sexual act. The two terms are independent: not all sexual acts with animals are performed by zoophiles; and not all zoophiles are sexually interested in animals. Pakistan has banned content on more than a dozen websites because of “offensive” and “blasphemous” material, while they themselves rank No. 1 for certain sex-related search terms, including “child sex,” “rape sex,” “animal sex,” “camel sex,” “donkey sex,” “dog sex,” and “horse sex”.[1] IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD AFGHANISTAN In a society where homosexuals and adulterers are stoned to death for “sexual immorality” you would expect a similar outcome for someone caught having sex with an animal. Surprisingly this is not the case. An Afghan soldier was detained by police after being caught having sex with a donkey in southeastern Afghanistan, a police officer told AFP. The soldier was discovered with the donkey in an abandoned house in a small village of Gardez, the capital of Paktia province, last week, a local police officer said. “He was caught in the act by a small boy who immediately told police about what he had seen and police arrested him in action,” the Gardez-based officer told AFP, requesting anonymity. The soldier claimed he committed the act because he did not have enough money to get married. After being caught with the donkey in a village about 100km south of the capital Kabul, he was jailed for four days and then released without charge. According to tradition in south and southeastern Afghanistan, a suitor must pay around $US5,000 ($A6,800) to the parents of the girl he wishes to marry. Soldier caught with his pants down The Age, March 16, 2004 Could it be that the soldier was released without charge because there is nothing in the Qur’an that prohibits bestiality? PALESTINE In 1923, the Director of Health in the British Mandate government in Palestine sent out a questionnaire to his Principal Medical and Health Officers in the country, asking them to report on various sexual practices and attitudes among the Muslim Arab population. As a result, the British discovered that the Muslim Arabs engaged in bestiality. The Nablus officer finds sodomy and “similar vices” “not uncommon in some of the towns but less so in the villages where…bestiality is by no mean unknown” and “immorality…rather lightly regarded” in those villages that are closer to the larger towns. He comments, “in the villages there seems to be curiously little feeling against bestiality which I have heard admitted in a very airy way on more than one occasion. Sodomy is considered disgraceful but not I think more so than ordinary immorality” (III). “Unnatural Vices” or Unnatural Rule? The Case of a Sex Questionnaire and the British Mandate Ellen L. Fleischmann, Jerusalem Quarterly File, Issue 10, 2000 PAKISTAN In Southern Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh and Balochistan, sex with animals is a common practice among rural youths and considered a rite of passage into adulthood. In southern Punjab, much of NWFP, Sindh and Balochistan sodomy and bestiality are common among rural youths. In fact, he caught two boys trying to rape a goat in the vicinity of the mazar of Hazrat Sultan Bahu. The punishment meted out to them was 10 blows with a chhittar (shoe) each on their butts. They protested however that in many rural areas having sex with an animal was considered a rite of passage on the way to becoming full members of the male society! Desegregation of the sexes and promiscuity Ishtiaq Ahmed (associate professor of political science at Stockholm University), Daily Times, June 27, 2006 DONKEY KILLED AFTER BEING RAPED In June 2011, a male who was caught having sex with another man’s donkey was fined Rs 50,000. This fine was not imposed for having sex with an animal, but for committing adultery. The raped donkey was labelled a ‘kari’ (an adultress) and eventually honor killed by its owner. Incredible though it may sound, a donkey was declared ‘Kari’ and shot dead here in a remote area on Monday. The Jirga imposed 110,000 rupees fine on the alleged ‘Karo’. The reports said that in Village Ghahi Khan Jatoi, a villager Ghazi Khan alias Malang shot dead his donkey on being ‘Kari’ with Sikandar Ali alias Deedo. He attempted to kill Sikander too but the alleged Karo managed to escape and surrendered himself to an influential person of the area. Sources said the influential person summoned both the parties and imposed 110,000 rupees fine on the Karo. They said Sikander and his family were forced to pay Rs 50,000 on the spot and the remaining amount in two installments. The sources added that the alleged Karo pleaded innocence at the Jirga, but the Jirga members paid no attention to it. Sikander’s family said he paid Rs 50,000 to save his life otherwise he would have been killed. Donkey declared ‘Kari’ killed The News International, July 19, 2011 Pakistan ranks number 1 for such varied search terms as “child sex,” “rape sex,” “animal sex,” “camel sex,” “donkey sex,” “dog sex,” and “horse sex”. The Muslim country, which has banned content on at least 17 websites to block offensive and blasphemous material, is the world’s leader in online searches for pornographic material . . . Google ranks Pakistan No. 1 in the world in searches for pornographic terms, outranking every other country in the world in searches per person for certain sex-related content. Pakistan is top dog in searches per-person for “horse sex” since 2004, “donkey sex” since 2007, “rape pictures” between 2004 and 2009, “rape sex” since 2004, “child sex” between 2004 and 2007 and since 2009, “animal sex” since 2004 and “dog sex” since 2005, according to Google Trends and Google Insights, features of Google that generate data based on popular search terms. The country also is tops — or has been No. 1 — in searches for “sex,” “camel sex,” “rape video,” “child sex video” and some other searches that can’t be printed here. No. 1 Nation in Sexy Web Searches? Call it Pornistan Kelli Morgan, Fox News, July 13, 2010 OTHER COUNTRIES & BESTIALITY — RELATED SEARCHES Pakistani Muslims are not alone in their search for porn. Google, the world’s most popular Internet search engine, has found in a survey that mostly Muslim states seek access to sex-related websites and Pakistan tops the list.

Miner and DeVos (1960) comment that amongst Arab tribal cultures, “Bestiality with goats, sheep, or camels provides another outlet. These practices are not approved but they are recognized as common among boys.” Havelock-Ellis [note 52] states “The Arabs, according to Kocher, chiefly practice bestiality with goats, sheep and mares. The Annamites, according to Mondiere, commonly employ sows and (more especially the young women) dogs.” Historical And Cultural Perspectives On Zoophilia Serving History There is also a certain saying which remains popular among the Arabs: The Arabs have never taken quite so condemnatory an attitude towards the practice, and indeed a popular Arab saying had it that “The pilgrimage to Mecca is not complete without copulating with the camel.”[9] SUDAN In February 2006, a man caught having sex with a neighbor’s goat was not punished, but ordered by the council of elders to pay the neighbor a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars ($50) and marry the animal because he “used it as his wife”. A Sudanese man has been forced to take a goat as his “wife”, after he was caught having sex with the animal. The goat’s owner, Mr Alifi, said he surprised the man with his goat and took him to a council of elders. They ordered the man, Mr Tombe, to pay a dowry of 15,000 Sudanese dinars ($50) to Mr Alifi. “We have given him the goat, and as far as we know they are still together,” Mr Alifi said. Sudan man forced to ‘marry’ goat BBC News, February 24,2006 MOROCCO Morocco is an Islamic country, with 98.7% of the population Muslims.[10] The following is taken from a paper on sexuality in Morocco written by Nadia Kadiri, M.D., and Abderrazak Moussaïd, M.D., with Abdelkrim Tirraf, M.D., and Abdallah Jadid, M.D. Translated by Raymond J. Noonan, Ph.D., and Sandra Almeida.[11] In the rural world, zoophilia is still very widespread and not blameworthy. With masturbation, it constitutes an obligatory passage in the adolescent male’s apprenticeship of sexuality. The operative phrase is ‘obligatory passage in the adolescent male’s apprenticeship of sexuality’. Obligatory. It means in rural Morocco, Muslim males must have sexual intercourse with animals as part of their sexual apprenticeship. Also according to the scholars Allen Edwardes and Robert Masters, Ph.D, FAACS, the Muslims of Morocco believe that sexual intercourse with donkeys “make the penis grow big and strong” and masturbation is often scorned by them in favor of bestiality.[12] SLAMIC SCRIPTURE The above paper also says “it is prohibited without question by the Shariâ”. But is this alleged prohibition within the Shari’ah extracted (as it must be) from the Qur’an and Hadith, or has this fiqh been derived using external non-Islamic sources? QURAN In contrast with what secular and non-Islamic religious sources say about bestiality, this is what the Qur’an has to say on the subject: That’s right – absolutely, positively nothing. Unlike the Qur’an’s clear-cut rulings on the morality of homosexuality, Polygamy, rape, and pedophilia, the permissibility of bestiality seems to have been left open to ‘interpretation.’ If Islamic teachings were truly opposed to such a practice, then this omission is somewhat surprising when you consider that, historically, bestiality was indigenously accepted in the Middle-East.[13] HADITH There is no prohibition against bestiality to be found within the two Sahihs. The following hadith is taken from the Sunnah Abu-Dawud collection, not Bukari or Muslim. Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If anyone has sexual intercourse with an animal, kill him and kill it along with him. I (Ikrimah) said: I asked him (Ibn Abbas): What offence can be attributed to the animal/ He replied: I think he (the Prophet) disapproved of its flesh being eaten when such a thing had been done to it. Abu Dawud 38:4449 Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? And it is. Just look at the very next hadith. Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: There is no prescribed punishment for one who has sexual intercourse with an animal. Abu Dawud 38:4450 This is a very clear contradiction. How can one hadith say kill the person committing bestiality, and the very next one say there is no prescribed punishment for the same person? Both statements cannot be true. What’s worse; these two contradictory hadiths (transmitted through different isnad) have been attributed to the same person. Abu Dawud himself had said the former of the two hadith is “not strong” and the latter further “weakens” it.[14] From the above, we can gather that Robert Masters had correctly stated, “bestiality was not specifically prohibited by the Prophet,”[9] so there is little wonder that Islamists generally shy away from mentioning Abu Dawud 38:4449 in their pronouncements on bestiality. SAHIH (AUTHENTIC) HADITH As we have previously mentioned, there is no prohibition against bestiality to be found within the two Sahihs (Authentic). However there does exist a certain hadith and commentary by the renowned Islamic scholar al-Nawawi, which is of interest. The following narration does not exist in the English translations of Sahih Muslim, but a similar (but sanitized version) appears in: Sahih Muslim 3:684 و حدثني ‏ ‏زهير بن حرب ‏ ‏وأبو غسان المسمعي ‏ ‏ح ‏ ‏و حدثناه ‏ ‏محمد بن المثنى ‏ ‏وابن بشار ‏ ‏قالوا حدثنا ‏ ‏معاذ بن هشام ‏ ‏قال حدثني ‏ ‏أبي ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏قتادة ‏ ‏ومطر ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏الحسن ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏أبي رافع ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏أبي هريرة ‏ ‏أن نبي الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏قال ‏ ‏إذا جلس بين ‏ ‏شعبها ‏ ‏الأربع ثم جهدها فقد وجب عليه الغسل ‏ ‏وفي حديث ‏ ‏مطر ‏ ‏وإن لم ينزل ‏ ‏قال ‏ ‏زهير ‏ ‏من بينهم بين ‏ ‏أشعبها ‏ ‏الأربع ‏ ‏حدثنا ‏ ‏محمد بن عمرو بن عباد بن جبلة ‏ ‏حدثنا ‏ ‏محمد بن أبي عدي ‏ ‏ح ‏ ‏و حدثنا ‏ ‏محمد بن المثنى ‏ ‏حدثني ‏ ‏وهب بن جرير ‏ ‏كلاهما ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏شعبة ‏ ‏عن ‏ ‏قتادة ‏ ‏بهذا الإسناد ‏ ‏مثله غير أن في حديث ‏ ‏شعبة ‏ ‏ثم اجتهد ولم يقل وإن لم ينزل ‏ Narrated by Zuhair Ibn Harb, narrated by Ghasan Al-Masma’i, narrated by Muhammad Ibn Al-Mathny, narrated by Ibn Bashar, who said that it was narrated by Muath Ibn Hisham, narrated by Abu Qatada, narrated by Mattar, narrated by Al-Hassan, narrated by Abu Rab’i, narrated by Abu Huraira who said: “The prophet — peace be upon him — said, ‘If one sits between a woman’s four parts (shu’biha Al-arba’) and then fatigues her, then it necessitates that he wash.’ In the hadith of Mattar it is added ‘even if he does not ejaculate (yunzil).’ Zuhair narrated among them using the phrase ‘Ashba’iha Al-arba’. It was also narrated by Muhammad Ibn Umar Ibn Ibad Ibn Jablah, narrated Muhammad Ibn Abi Uday, narrated by Muhammad Ibn Al-Mathny, narrated by Wahb Ibn Jarir who both related from Shu’bah who narrated from Qatada who gave this same chain of transmission, except that in the hadith of Shu’bah it has the phrase ‘then he labored’ but did not have the phrase ‘even if he does not ejaculate.’ Sahih Muslim – Book of Menstruation – hadith #525 IMAM AL-NAWAWI (1234 — 1278 AD) Below is a short bio of al-Nawawi, whose commentary of Sahih Muslim is second only to Ibn Hajar’s commentary of Sahih Bukhari.[15] Imam Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi was born in the village of Nawa in Southern Syria, Nawawi spent most of his life in Damascus where he lived in a simple manner, devoted to Allah, engaging single-mindedly in worship, study, writing and teaching various Islamic sciences. The life of this world seems scarcely to have impinged upon him. He was a versatile and extremely dedicated scholar whose breadth of learning was matched by its depth. Imam Nawawi died at the young age of 44 years, leaving behind him numerous works of great importance, the most famous of these being: • al-Arba’un Nabawi (An-Nawawis Forty Hadith) • Riyadhus saleheen • al-Maqasid (Al-Nawawi’s Manual of Islam). • Kitab al-Adhkar, • Minhaj al-Talibin (a main reference for Shafi’i fiqh) • Shar’ Sahih Muslim (he was the first to arrange the sahih of Muslim in the now familiar categories) Although best known for his works in hadith, Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi (d. 676/1277) was also the Imam of the later Shafi’i school of Jurisprudence, and widely acknowledged as the intellectual heir to Imam Shafi’i. He was a renowned scholar and jurist who dedicated his life to the pursuit of Islamic learning.

The scholars have disagreed about the intended meaning of ‘shu’biha Al-arba’ (the fours) for some said that it means the arms and the legs, while others have said that it refers to the legs and thighs, and other said it means the legs and the edge of the pubic area. Al-Qadi Ayad chose the meaning of the four areas surrounding the vagina. The word (Shu’b) means areas, its singular form being (Shu’bah). As for those who say (Ashba’iha) that is the plural of the word (Shu’b). The word Aj-hada-ha (fatigue her) means to plow her, which was also stated by Al-Khatabi. Others have said it means to make her reach exhaustion as in the phrase ‘she made him toil and labor till he was exhausted’. Al-Qadi Ayad — may Allah rest his soul- said ‘Primarily, the word (Jahada’ha) means that the man exerted his effort working in a woman, where the word (Juh’d) means energy and refers to motion by describing the type of work. This is similar to his (the prophet) saying ‘he who plowed her’ meaning he who penetrated her by his motion. Otherwise, what other fatigue could a man experience because of her, and Allah knows best. The meaning of the hadith is that the necessity to wash is not limited to when semen is ejaculated, rather it is when the penile head (Hash-fa, lit. “the head of the male member,” i.e. head of the penis) penetrates the vagina, then it is necessary for the man and the woman to wash. There is no disagreement on this today, even though there was disagreement on this by some of the early companions and others later. However, an agreement was later reached and this is what we have shown and presented previously. Our companions have said that if the penile head has penetrated a woman’s anus, or a man’s anus, or an animal’s vagina or its anus then it is necessary to wash whether the one being penetrated is alive or dead, young or old, whether it was done intentionally or absentmindedly, whether it was done willfully or forcefully. This also applies if the woman places the male member inside her while the man is asleep, whether the penis is erect or not, whether the penis is circumcised or uncircumcised. All these situations require that the person committing the act and the one the act is committed on must wash themselves, unless the person committing the act or the person the act is committed on is a young male or female. In that case it cannot be said that the person must wash, for they do not have the responsibility, rather it is said that this person is in a state of impurity. If that person can discern (the sexual act) then his guardian can command him to wash just as he commands him to perform the ablution washing for prayers. For if he prays without washing, his prayer has not been performed correctly; likewise if he doesn’t wash after he reaches puberty he must be forced to wash. If he washed as a youth and then reaches puberty, then he does not have to repeat the washing. Our companions have said that intercourse occurs when a healthy male’s penile head completely penetrates (an orifice), as has been unanimously agreed. Thus, when the penile head has completely disappeared (inside the orifice), then all the regulations concerning washing apply. It is unanimously agreed that it is not necessary that the entire penile shaft penetrate to apply the regulations of washing. If part of the penile head penetrates, then the regulations of washing are not imposed as is agreed, except by an odd few of our companions who said that even in this case all the regulations of washing apply. However, this opinion is wrong, rejected and abandoned. If the male member was severed and what remained was less than the length of the penile head, then none of the washing regulations apply. If the part remaining was equal in length to the penile head length then that part must completely penetrate for the regulation of washing to apply. If the part remaining was greater in length to the penile head length then there are two famous opinions for our companions. The most correct is that if the portion that penetrates is equal to the length of the penile head, then the regulations for washing apply. The other opinion is that none of the regulations for washing apply until the entire remaining length of the penile shaft completely penetrates and Allah knows best. If a man wraps a sheath around his male member and then ejaculates inside a woman’s vagina, then there are three opinions from our companions. The most famous is that the man must wash. The second is that he does not have to wash because he ejaculated inside the sheath. The third is that if the sheath is thick and prevents climax and wetness (in the vagina) then washing is not necessary, otherwise it is necessary and Allah knows best. If a woman inserts (in her vagina) an animal’s penis she must wash, and if she inserts a detached penis (thakaran maktu-an, lit. “a severed male member”) there are two opinions; the most correct is that she must wash. Sahih Muslim – Book of Menstruation – hadith #525 – Commentary ISLAMIC SCHOLARS Some Sunni Islamic scholars have ruled that bestiality does not invalidate the hajj or ones fast. ولو وطئ بهيمة لا يفسد حجه “If he had sexual intercourse with an animal, that will not make his hajj void” Abu Bakar al-Kashani (d. 587 H), Badaye al-Sanae, Vol. 2, p. 216 “Sex with animals, dead people and masturbation, does not invalidate one’s fast provided ejaculation does not occur” Allamah Hassan bin Mansoor Qadhi Khan, Fatawa Qadhi Khan, Page 820 Others have said it is halal. لقد كانت نكاح الحيوانات قبل البعثه منتشره وتروى كثير من الروايات انها حلال لكنها مكروه والاحوط وجوبا ترك هذه العاده التي تسبب الأذى النفسي ويجب عليك الاعتراف لصاحب الاغنام ودفع قيمتها لمالكها Sex with animals before the mission (Islam) was wide spread and many narrations are narrated that it is halal but makrooh (disliked). And on the compulsory precaution one should abandon this practice that may cause self harm. And you must admit this to the owner of the sheep and pay the owner. Sex with animals Fatwa al-Uzma Seyyid Ali al-Sistani CONCLUSION From all of the above, we can certainly see that, unlike the West, Islamic societies do not universally harbor negative attitudes towards bestiality. Many Muslims seek out gratification or are indifferent to this perversion, and in some cases it is even openly promoted and made obligatory. This is all in stark contrast with their attitudes towards homosexuality and their allowance of pedophilia. Therefore to claim that the West without the guidance of Islam has allowed bestiality is not only false, but hypocritical when you consider that this perversion, alongside pedophilia, is left largely unhindered by the Islamic clerisy in their societies and runs rampant among followers of Islam. Aside from their own embarrassment, we can also see that there is little basis for any Shari’ah prohibition of bestiality/zoophilia as the Qur’an and the Sahih Hadiths (Bukhari and Muslim) do not prohibit this unnatural practice, furthermore the references we have examined outside of the two Sahihs are considered weak.

      AIR BURAQ

      Buraq The Red Nosed Donkey
      Buraq, the red-nosed Donkey
      had a very shiny nose
      and if you ever saw it
      you would even say it glows.

      All of the other Donkeys
      used to laugh and call him names
      They never let poor Buraq
      play in any reindeer games.

      Then one foggy Ramadan eve
      Muhammad came to say:
      “Buraq with your nose so bright,
      won’t you guide me to Heaven tonight?”

      Then all the Donkeys loved him
      as they shouted out with glee,
      Buraq the red-nosed Donkey,
      you’ll go down in history!

      MUHAMMAD’S NIGHT JOURNEY

      No Muslim can deny the importance of Mohammed’s night journey in Islam, because this trip determined the Islamic rituals of praying five times a day, and performing ablution – or washing before prayer. In other words Mohammed’s night journey should impact the lives of 1.5 billion Muslims all over the world – five times – each and every day.

      Qur’an, sura 17.1

      “Glory to (Allah) Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who heareth and seeth (all things)”.

      Mohammed’s alleged overnight trip covered the 1,000 miles from Mecca to Jerusalem, a trip to heaven, and a return to Mecca by morning, and is described in part as follows:

      Sahih Muslim, Book 001, Number 0309:
      It is narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: I was brought al-Buraq Who is an animal white and long, larger than a donkey but smaller than a mule, who would place his hoof a distance equal to the range of vision. I mounted it and came to the Temple (Bait Maqdis in Jerusalem), then tethered it to the ring used by the prophets. I entered the mosque and prayed two rak’ahs in it, and then came out and Gabriel brought me a vessel of wine and a vessel of milk.

      So Mohammed flew on al-Buraq to the temple in Jerusalem, tied it up to a ring “the prophets” had used in the past, and went on in to the Temple to pray. Because of the fantastic nature of Mohammed’s claims, some 21st century Muslims try to suggest that this was a vision or dream, but according to perhaps the most highly regarded historian of Islam:

      Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 228:
      Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
      The sights which Allah’s Apostle was shown on the Night Journey when he was taken to Bait-ul-Maqdis (i.e. Jerusalem) were actual sights, (not dreams). And the Cursed Tree (mentioned) in the Quran is the tree of Zaqqum (itself).

      Additionally, the rock enshrined in the Dome of the Rock on the temple mount, is supposed to be where Mohammed and Baraq launched from, for the leg of the trip to heaven. So it would be untenable to suggest that Mohammed’s journey was a dream or vision, while at the same time claiming that he launched from a very much physical and tangible rock, on the temple mount.

      Doubtless there were many skeptics when Mohammed recounted the details of his trip the morning after his night journey on the flying animal. As Dr. Rafat Amari points out in the introduction to “Islam: In Light of History”, Abu Bakar (the first assistant of Mohammed who became his first Caliph) confirmed Mohammed’s descriptions of the temple he had visited, because Abu Baker claimed he had once taken a journey to Jerusalem and had seen the temple himself, and remembered it to be just as Mohammed had described it.

      There is, however, a little difficulty with their accounts. The temple had been torn down over 500 years before their claims of personal visits to it. Indeed if Mohammed had actually hitched his flying animal anywhere near where the temple had been, as he claimed “the prophets” had hitched theirs, at the time in history that his night flight is supposed to have occurred, he would have found that the temple mount was being used as a garbage dump. The Muslim’s own Caliph Omar would have observed this when he marched into Jerusalem in 639 AD, not very many years after Mohammed offered his account detailed above.

      While Mohammed and Bakr didn’t need to be concerned about their largely illiterate followers traveling the 1,000 miles from Mecca to Jerusalem, to scrutinize their accounts, what excuse do today’s Muslims have in this 21st century information age?

      “In light of all this, we ask the following questions:

      * What Temple did Muhammad visit, enter and pray at before ascending to heaven?
      * Seeing that the Quran mentions a journey to a Mosque that did not exist during the lifetime of Muhammad, how can you consider the Quran to be 100% the word of God?
      * In light of the fact that both the Quran and the Islamic traditions contain this historical error, how can you trust either source to provide you with reliable information on the life of Muhammad and the first Muslims?
      * Does not the fact that the Quran mentions a Mosque which was only erected in AD 691 prove that there were Muslims who unashamedly and deceitfully added stories to the Quranic text and passed them off as revelation from God?
      * If you cannot find an answer to this historical problem within the Quran, why do you still remain a Muslim?”

      FLYING ANIMALS

      Flying camels, or baraqs, were nothing new to Islamic tradition. It was how they explained away the transportation impossibilities that resulted from the fictional history the Islamic “historians” had created.

      For example it was one of these mythical flying camels that enabled Abraham to pay visits to his son Ishmael in Mecca, a 1000 miles away. Islamic tradition also holds that it was a Baraq that enabled Ishmael to attend his father Abraham’s funeral in Hebron. Are we beginning to get the picture? Any time the thousand miles between Mecca and Israel presented the obvious geographical impossibility, of any suggestion of Abraham or Ishmael ever having been in Mecca, simply break out the flying camel! Hmmm

      But then the flying camel wasn’t invented by Muslim historians but had been in mythology from long before. It was utilized in Persian Zoroastrian mythology.

      Quoting Dr. Amari

      “The Pahlavi Texts of the book of Dinkard are Zoroastrian canonical comments on the Avesta, considered part of the Zoroastrian scriptures. It mentioned KaiKhusrois, a mythological prophet who transformed Vae, the god of the air, into the shape of a camel. He then mounted him and went where the immortal mythological Persians dwelt.”

      Indeed, when combined with the “Mecca” page, what we learn is that every Muslim on earth, bows toward and is supposed to travel to and circumambulate, the very same black stone moon god idol, that the pagans bowed toward and circumambulated before Mohammed. Now we learn that the reason that Muslims bow toward that black stone idol five times a day, and wash before doing so, is because Mohammed claimed to have taken a trip on a flying animal. Beyond the obvious questions about flying animals, that even an 8 year old might ask, Mohammed’s visit to and prayer in a temple, is also shown to be a physical impossibility. Some suggest it was a reference to the mosque that was built on the temple mount, but no “prophets” ever tied camels up to that mosque, let alone that it wasn’t built until 685 AD, long after Mohammed was dead and buried.

      The real reason Muslims pray five times a day and perform ablution, is likely because Mohammed became deeply involved in the second century occult cult of the Sabians, by way of four of his relatives. This cult apparently had so much influence over Mohammed’s daily life, that some in his own tribe referred to him as “the Sabian”. In the Quran Mohammed lists Sabians right alongside Christians and Jews.

      Qur’an, surah 2:62

      “Those who believe (in the Qur’an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day…”

      Qur’an, surah 5:69

      “Those who believe (in the Qur’an), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the sabians and the Christians…”

      And guess what?

      The occult Sabian cult prayed five times a day and performed ablution.

      Excerpt from “Occultism in the family of Mohammed”

      “Waraqa was one of the founders of the group called Ahnaf. In the first narration of the life of Mohammed, written by Ibn Hisham in the 8th century A.D., we read:

      The Honafa’, or Ahnaf, was a small group started when four Sabians at Mecca agreed. Those four were Zayd bin Amru bin Nafil, Waraqa bin Naufal, Ubaydullah bin Jahsh, and Uthman Bin al-Huwayrith.

      The four founders of Ahnaf were all related to Mohammed. They were descendants of Loayy, one of Mohammed’s ancestors. Furthermore, Waraqa bin Naufal and Uthman Bin al-Huwayrith were cousins of Khadijah. We know this from Mohammed’s genealogy presented by Ibn Hisham. Ubaydullah Bin Jahsh was a maternal cousin to Mohammed. Mohammed married his widow, Um Habibeh. All this reveals the close connection between Mohammed and the founders of the group.”

      Before fundamental, Quran and Hadith following – true Muslims – received Western financing through oil purchase to expand their murder of innocent non-Muslims all around the world – with 2 million killed in the Sudan alone by the Islamic beast during this Islamic Second Jihad – the only thing I would have likely recalled knowing about Arabia would have been what I learned as a child. This would include stories like Aladdin’s lamp from which a genie emerged when it was rubbed, and Ali Baba and his magic flying carpet. Interesting now in adulthood to learn about Mohammed’s night flight that 1.5 billion people are not only expected to believe, but also to follow, five times a day.

      BURAQ THE WONDER HORSE IS DEAD

      I read it in the paper just about a week ago
      It was on the back page and not many Muslims know
      Boy it made me feel bad when I picked it up and read,
      Buraq the wonder horse is dead

      Oh we rode the heavenly trails together at the Friday morning mosque show
      The heavenly trails’ are gone now but it hurts to hear it said
      Buraq the wonder horse is dead

      My memory goes back to when I was a little kid
      We believed in everything that Buraq ever did
      Will our kids have a hero half as brave or half as strong
      Buarq the wonder horse is gone

      Oh we rode the heavenly trails together…
      We believed that Buarq was the fastest horse alive
      If he outrun the wind itself we never were surprised
      In my childhood memory full of boys grow into men
      Buraq the wonder rides again

      Oh we rode the sandy trails together…
      Buraq the wonder horse is gone

      SATAN

      Muhammad had some very unusual views about Satan. For instance, he thought that Satan urinated in people’s ears:

      “Narrated Abdullah: A person was mentioned before the prophet and he was told that he had kept on sleeping till morning and has not gotten up for the (fajr – early morning) prayer. The prophet said, ‘Satan urinated in his ears.'” Vol. 2, Bk. 21, No. 245
      He believed that yawning comes from Satan:

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: The prophet said, ‘Yawning is from Satan and if anyone of you yawns, he should check his yawning as much as possible, for if anyone of you (during the act of yawning) should say: ‘Ha’, Satan will laugh at him.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 54, No. 509 — see also Vol. 8, Bk. 73, No. 242

      Muhammad even claimed that Satan actually lodges in the upper part of a person’s nose during the night and therefore needed to be flushed out every morning by snorting water in and out of one’s nose!

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: The prophet said, ‘if anyone of you rouses from sleep and performs the ablution, he should wash his nose by putting water in it and then blowing it out thrice, because Satan has stayed in the upper part of his nose all the night.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 54, No. 516

      The footnote to this particular hadith states:

      “We should believe that Satan actually stays in the upper part of one’s nose, though we cannot perceive how, for this is related to the unseen world of which we know nothing except what Allah tells us through his messenger.”

      Desperate attempts have been made to make sense of this tradition. One explanation given is that “Satan” refers to harmful things within the nose that need to be flushed out. If this were the case, then something harmful enters one’s nose during the day as well as the night; yet this Hadith emphasizes night, implying that Satan literally enters one’s nose at nighttime, or so Muhammad believed.

      To make matters worse, Muhammad actually thought that Satan could fart or pass wind!

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s apostle said, ‘When the Adhan is pronounced Satan takes to his heels and passes wind with noise during his flight in order not to hear the Adhan. When the Adhan is completed he comes back and again takes to his heels when the Iqama is pronounced and after its completion he returns again till he whispers into the heart of the person (to divert his attention from his prayer) and makes him remember things which he does not recall to his mind before the prayer and that causes him to forget how much he has prayed.'” Volume 1, Book 11, Number 582

      Finally, Muhammad thought that a bad dream is from Satan and one “should spit on his side thrice and seek refuge with Allah from its evil; then it will not harm him.” (Sahih Muslim, Bk. 29, Number 5613). One is left wondering how does spitting three times to the side affect Satan?

      DOGS

      Muhammad believed that angels do not enter a house that has a dog:
      “Narrated Abu Talha: The prophet said, ‘Angels do not enter a house witch has either a dog or a picture in it.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 54, No. 539 — see also Vol. 5, Bk. 59, No. 338

      And:

      Chapter 19: ANGELS DO NOT ENTER A HOUSE IN WHICH THERE IS A DOG OR A PICTURE

      A’isha reported that Gabriel made a promise with Allah’s Messenger to come at a definite hour; that hour came but he did not visit him. And there was in his hand (in the hand of Allah’s Apostle) a staff. He threw it from his hand and said: Never has Allah or His messengers (angels) ever broken their promise. Then he cast a glance (and by chance) found a puppy under his cot and said: ‘A’isha, when did this dog enter here? She said: By Allah, I don’t know. He then commanded and it was turned out. Then Gabriel came and Allah’s Messenger said to him: You promised me and I waited for you, but you did not come, whereupon he said: It was the dog in your house which prevented me (to come), for we (angels) do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture. (Sahih Muslim, Book 024, Number 5246)

      And because of this, “Allah’s Apostle ordered that the dogs should be killed” (Vol. 4, No. 540).

      Later, after realizing that dogs were a necessity for hunting and guarding sheep, Muhammad changed his mind:

      Maimuna reported that one morning Allah’s Messenger was silent with grief. Maimuna said: Allah’s Messenger, I find a change in your mood today. Allah’s Messenger said: Gabriel had promised me that he would meet me tonight, but he did not meet me. By Allah, he never broke his promises, and Allah’s Messenger spent the day in this sad (mood). Then it occurred to him that there had been a puppy under their cot. He commanded and it was turned out. He then took some water in his hand and sprinkled it at that place. When it was evening Gabriel met him and he said to him: you promised me that you would meet me the previous night. He said: Yes, but we do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture. Then on that very morning he commanded the killing of the dogs until he announced that the dog kept for the orchards should also be killed, but he spared the dog meant for the protection of extensive fields (or big gardens). (Sahih Muslim, Book 024, Number 5248)

      Chapter 31: COMMAND OF KILLING DOGS AND THEN ITS ABROGATION, AND PROHIBITION OF KEEPING THEM BUT FOR HUNTING AND PROTECTION OF LANDS OR CATTLE OR LIKE THAT…

      Ibn Umar reported that Allah’s messenger ordered the killings of dogs except the dog tamed for hunting, or watching of the herd of sheep or other domestic animals…” (Sahih Muslim, Book 010, Number 3812)

      Abu Zubair heard Jabir b. Abdullah saying: Allah’s messenger ordered us to kill dogs, and we carried out this order so much that we also killed the dog coming with a woman from the desert. Then Allah’s Apostle forbade their killing. He (the Holy Prophet) further said: It is your duty to kill the jet black (dog) having two spots (on the eyes), for it is a devil. (Sahih Muslim, Book 010, Number 3813)

      These narrations raise a few questions. First, if Allah’s angels are capable of withstanding Satan himself, how can dogs or pictures stop them from accomplishing their tasks? Second, couldn’t “Gabriel” have waited for Muhammad to come outside of his house in order to speak with him? Or couldn’t he have met Muhammad in his mosque? Why did this “Gabriel” have to speak to Muhammad in his house where the dead dog was? Third, if dogs are really devils then why does the Quran say that Allah protected a dog along with the Companions of the Cave (Q. 18:18 and 18:20)? Is Allah in the business of preserving evil animals as they lay asleep for centuries only to awaken them again? More importantly, what were these righteous servants doing with a dog in the first place? Fourth, didn’t Allah give Solomon power over the Jinn to build statues or images (Q. 34:13)? And didn’t the temple which Solomon built for the worship of God contain images (1 Kings 6:23-35; 7:27-37; 2 Chronicles 3:10-14)? Does this therefore mean that the angels never entered Solomon’s palace or temple?

      The translator of Sahih Muslim, Abdul Hamid Siddiqui, tries to desperately explain away the obvious problems with Muhammad’s stance on dogs,

      “The Hadith gives us an idea why the Holy Prophet commanded to kill dogs. There must have been an excess of stray dogs and thus the danger of rabies in the city of Medina and its suburbs. The Holy Prophet, therefore, ordered to kill them. Later on when it was found that his companions were killing them indiscriminately, he forbade them to do so and told them that only ferocious beasts which were a source of danger to life should be killed. The word ‘devil’ clarifies this point. Here devil stands for ferocious…” (Sahih Muslim by Imam Muslim, rendered into English by Abdul Hamid Siddiqui [Kitab Bhavan, New Delhi, India, 11th Reprint 1995], Volume III & IV, Book X. Kitab Al-Buyu’ (Pertaining To Business Transactions), p. 825, fn. 2012; italic emphasis ours)

      One senses Siddiqui’s desperation to defend the killing of dogs. He tries to justify this by assuming that there was an excess of stray and rabid dogs in Medina, yet provides no proof for such a claim. Secondly, even if his assumption was correct, why did Muhammad allow both hunting and sheep dogs to remain alive? After all, these dogs would be just as deadly since they would come in contact with ferocious disease-infested animals that could have easily transmitted these diseases to humans. Furthermore, we are still left to grapple with the problem of jet-black dogs with two spots being devils. If “devil”, as Sidiqqi states, means ferocious, then why single out these dogs as devils when there were other dogs just as, or even more, ferocious than they? It would seem that Muhammad believed that these animals were literally possessed by devils.
      Finally, Muhammad declared that if any man were to keep a dog other than for hunting or guarding the herd, he “loses everyday out of his deeds equal to two qiraat” (Sahih Muslim, Book 010, Number 3815). In other words, Muslims with house-dogs would lose their eternal rewards.

      HEAT FEVER

      Muhammad claimed that fevers were caused by the heat of hellfire:
      “Narrated Aisha: the prophet said, ‘fever is from the heat of the Hell-fire so abate it with water.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 54, No. 485
      And Muhammad also taught that,
      “… The severity of heat is from the raging of the Hell-fire, and in very hot weather, pray (zuhr) when it becomes cooler.” Vol. 1, Bk. 10, No. 514

      URINE AND RELIEF

      Muhammad believed that people would be tormented in their graves for soiling their clothes with their urine:

      “Narrated Ibn Abbas: ‘Once the prophet while passing through one of the Heytan (gardens or graveyards) of Al-Medina or Makka, heard the voices of two persons who were being tortured in their graves. The prophet said, ‘These two persons are being tortured not for a major sin (to avoid).’ He then added, ‘Yes! (There they are being tortured for a major sin). Indeed, one of them never saved himself from being soiled with his urine while the other used to go about with calumnies (to make enmity between friends).’

      And how did Muhammad expect them to receive relief from their pain?
      “The prophet then asked for a green branch (of a date-palm tree), broke it into two pieces and put one on each grave. On being asked why he had done so, he replied, ‘I hope that their torture might be lessened, till these get dried.'” Vol. 1, Bk. 4, No. 215

      In fact, Muhammad believed that certain types of urine had a medicinal effect:
      “(Narrated Abu Qilaba): Anas said, ‘some people of ‘Ukal or ‘Uraina tribe came to Al-Medina and its climate did not suit them. So the prophet ordered them to go to the herd of (milch) camels and to drink their milk and urine (as a medicine) …” Vol. 1, Bk. 4, No. 234

      Another tradition says that Muhammad told them to, “drink a mixture of its (camel’s) milk and urine.” (As-Sayyid Sabiq, Fiqh us-Sunnah, Purification and Prayer, vol. 1, p. 12)

      Muslim scholars have used these traditions to prove that Muhammad made animal urine permissible to drink. For instance, the compiler of the five-volume set of Fiqh us-Sunnah says that, “by analogy, other permissible animals’ urine may also be considered pure.” (Ibid.)

      And according to Ibn al-Munzhir, “Those who claim that that was permissible only for those people are incorrect,” since “scholars permit, without any objection, the sale of sheep’s stools and the use of camel’s urine in their medicine, both in the past and in the present, again without any objection. This shows that they are considered pure.” (Ibid.)
      Ash-Shaukani stated that, “Apparently, the urine and stools of every animal permissible to eat is pure.” (Ibid.)

      To this the compiler states, “There is nothing to prove otherwise.” (Ibid.)

      HUMANS TRANSFORMED INTO ANIMALS

      The following narrative shows us the type of reasoning Muhammad used to conclude that a group of Jews had been transformed into rats:
      “Narrated (Abu Huraira): The prophet said, ‘a group of Israelites was lost. Nobody knows what they did. But I do not see them except that they were cursed and transformed into rats, for if you put the milk of a she-camel in front of a rat, it will not drink it, but if the milk of a sheep is put in front of it, it will drink it.’ I told this to Ka’b who asked me, ‘did you hear it from the prophet?’ “I said, ‘Yes”. Ka’b asked me the question several times; I said to Ka’b, ‘do I read the Taurat (Torah)? (i.e., I tell you this from the prophet).'” Vol. 4, Bk. 54, No. 524

      What does the footnote say?

      “Later on, the prophet was informed through inspiration about the fate of those Israelites: They were transformed into pigs and monkeys.”

      This footnote is not alone in affirming the literal transformation of humans into animals. Several of Islam’s greatest scholars, namely, Baidawi, al-Zamakhshari, and the two Jalalans in their commentaries also believed that some of the Jews were literally transformed into animals.

      Muhammad further believed that on the judgment day Allah would transform Abraham’s pagan father into a hyena and throw him in hell:

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: The prophet said, ‘On the Day of Resurrection Abraham will meet his father Azar whose face will be dark and covered with dust. (The Prophet Abraham will say to him): “Didn’t I tell you not to disobey me?” His father will reply: “Today I will not disobey you.” Abraham will say: “O Lord! You promised me not to disgrace me on the Day of Resurrection; and what will be more disgraceful to me than cursing and dishonoring my father?” Then Allah will say (to him):’ “I have forbidden Paradise for the disbelievers.” Then he will be addressed, “O Abraham! Look! What is underneath your feet?” He will look and there he will see a Dhabh (an animal,) blood-stained, which will be caught by the legs and thrown in the (Hell) Fire.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 55, No. 569

      In light of this, it shouldn’t surprise us that Muhammad actually thought that his god would literally change people’s faces into donkeys if they raised their heads in prayers before the imam!

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: the prophet said, ‘isn’t he who raises his head before the Imam afraid that Allah may transform his head into that of a donkey or his figure (face) into that of a donkey?” Vol. 1, Bk. 11, No. 660

      “Narrated An-Nu’man bin Bashar: the prophet said, ‘straighten your rows or Allah will alter your faces.'” Vol. 1, Bk. 11, No. 685

      Once more, we are told by the translator that,

      “This is a severe warning, that if you do not straighten your rows [in Salat (prayers)], Allah may change your faces to that of an animal, e.g. donkey, etc. Or make them like the backs of necks, etc. (see Fath Al-Bari, Vol. 2, page 349).”

      SHARIAH OBSERVANT MONKEYS

      One of Muhammad’s companions claimed to have witnessed and assisted a group of monkeys in stoning a she-monkey for committing adultery!

      Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun: During the pre-Islamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too stoned it along with them. Vol. 5, Bk. 58, No. 188

      Need we say more?

      WOMEN

      The majority of people in hell will be women since Muhammad is reported to have warned a group of female followers that they should,

      “‘Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of hell-fire were you (women).’ They asked, ‘Why is it so, O Allah’s messenger?’ He replied, ‘You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious, sensible man could be led astray by some of you.’ The women asked, ‘O Allah’s messenger! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?’ He said, ‘Is not the witness (evidence) of two women equal to the witness of one man?’ They replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in your intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?’ The women replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in your religion.'” Vol. 1, Bk. 6, No. 301 — see also Vol. 4, Bk. 54, No. 464

      Women are also an evil omen and are the most harmful thing for men:

      “Narrated Abdullah bin Umar: I heard the prophet saying, ‘Evil omen is in three things: the horse, the woman, and the house.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 52, No. 110

      “Narrated Usarra bin Zaid: The prophet said, ‘After me I have not left any Fitnah (trial and affliction, etc.) more harmful to men than women.'” Vol. 7, Bk. 62, No. 33

      Muhammad taught that angels curse any woman who refuses to sleep with her husband:

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s messenger said, ‘If a husband calls his wife to his bed (i.e. have sexual relation) and she refuses and curses him in anger, the angels will curse her till morning.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 54, No. 460

      Muhammad commanded that, if a person is away and is returning home from his journey, he must not enter until,

      “the woman whose husband was absent (from the house) shaves her pubic hair and the woman with unkempt hair, combs her hair.” Vol. 7, Bk. 62, No. 173

      TEMPORARY MARRIAGES

      For a while, Muhammad allowed what is called Mut’a, temporary marriages for Muslims to satisfy their sexual desires.

      “Narrated Abdullah: We used to participate in the holy wars carried on by the prophet and we had no women (wives) with us. So we said (to the prophet) ‘Shall we castrate ourselves?’ But the prophet forbade us to do that and thenceforth he allowed us to marry a woman (temporarily) by giving her even a garment, and then he recited: ‘O you who believe! Make not unlawful the Tayyibât (all that is good as regards foods, things, deeds, beliefs, persons, etc.) which Allah has made lawful to you.'” Vol. 6, Bk. 60, No. 139
      This would be considered a form of legal prostitution, since these were not real marriages but sexual services which the Muslims paid for.

      JIHAD AND APOSTASY

      Jihad (fighting for the cause of Islam) is one of the most important tenants in Islam. Dr. Khan writes:

      “Al-Jihad (the holy fighting) in Allah’s cause (with full force and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior, [His Word being La ilaha ill-Allah (which means: none has the right to be worshipped but Allah) and His religion is propagated.
      “By abandoning Jihad (may Allah protect us from that) Islam is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior position; their honor is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape from this duty, or does not in his innermost heart, wish to fulfill this duty, dies with one of the qualities of a hypocrite.” (Ibid., p. 580, fn. 1)

      Thus, the importance of spreading Islam via war cannot be underestimated. In fact, Jihad is perhaps the most important duty a Muslim can fulfill, more so than prayer and fasting:
      “Narrated Abu Huraira: A man came to Allah’s messenger and said, ‘Guide me to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).’ He replied, ‘I do not find such a deed.’ Then he added, ‘Can you, while the Muslim fighter has gone for Jihad, enter your mosque to perform Salat (prayers) without cease and observe Saum (fast) and never break your Saum (fast)?’ The man said, ‘But who can do that?'” Vol. 4, Bk. 52, No. 44

      Khan explains,

      “Of course, nobody can offer Salat (prayer) and observe Saum (fast) incessantly, and since the Muslim fighter is rewarded as if he was doing such impossible deeds, no possible deed equals Jihad in reward.” (Ibid., p. 580, fn. 2)

      The hadith also states:

      “Narrated (Abdullah bin Masud): I asked the prophet ‘Which deed is the dearest to Allah?’ He replied, ‘To offer As-Salat (the prayers) at their early stated fixed times.’ I asked, ‘What is the next (in goodness)?’ He replied, ‘To be good and dutiful to your parents.’ I again asked, ‘What is the next (in goodness)?’ He replied, ‘To participate in Jihad (religious fighting) in Allah’s cause.’ (Abdullah) added, ‘These were told by Allah’s messenger and if I had asked more, he would have told me more.'” Vol. 1, Bk. 10, No. 505

      This has led thousands to convert to Islam out of fear, and not from sincere acceptance of the heart. One such individual embraced Islam after being tied to a pillar for three consecutive days before being released:

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: The prophet sent some cavalry towards Najd and they brought a man from the tribe of Banu Hanifa who was called Thumama bin Uthal. They fastened him to one of the pillars of the mosque. The prophet went to him and said, ‘What have you got, O Thumama?’ (i.e., ‘What do you think I am going to do to you?’) He replied, ‘I have got a good thought, O Muhammad! If you should kill me, you would kill a person who has already killed somebody, and if you should set me free, you would do a favor to one who is grateful, and if you want property, then ask me whatever wealth you want.’ He was left till the next day when the prophet said to him, ‘What have you got, O Thumama?’ He said, ‘What I told you, i.e., if you set me free, you would do a favor to one who is grateful.’ The prophet left him till the day after, when he said, ‘What have you got, O Thumama?’ He said, ‘I have got what I told you.’

      “On that the prophet said, ‘Release Thumama, so he (i.e. Thumama) went to a garden of date-palm trees near to the mosque, took a bath and then entered the mosque and said, ‘La ilaha ill-Allah’ (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and also testify that Muhammad is His messenger! By Allah, O Muhammad! There was no face on the surface of the earth most disliked by me than yours, but now your face has become the most beloved face to me. By Allah, there was no religion most disliked by me than yours, but now it is the most beloved religion to me. By Allah, there was no town most disliked by me than your town, but now it is the most beloved town to me. Your cavalry arrested me (at the time) when I was intending to perform Umra, and now what do you think?’
      “Allah’s messenger gave him good tidings (congratulated him) and ordered him to perform Umra. So when he came to Makka, someone said to him, ‘You have become a Sabi? (have you changed your religion?)’ Thumama said, ‘No by Allah! I have embraced Islam with Muhammad, the messenger of Allah. No, by Allah! Not a single grain of wheat will come to you from Yamama unless the Prophet gives his permission.'” Vol. 5, Bk. 59, No. 658

      The idea of tying someone for three days is incredulous. The last clause of the passage is also of interest since it reveals the reason for Thumama’s conversion, namely economic prosperity.

      Because many became Muslims due to the fear of the sword, it is not surprising to find that a great number of them abandoned Islam after Muhammad’s death. This led to bloody wars and to the implementation of brutal methods of torture in order to force apostates to convert back to Islam, and even murdering them if they refused:

      “Narrated (Abu Huraira): When Allah’s messenger died and Abu Bakr became the caliph some Arabs renegaded (converted to disbelief) (Abu Bakr decided to declare war against them), ‘Umar said to Abu Bakr, ‘How can you fight with these people although Allah’s messenger said, ‘I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight the people till they say: La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah) and whoever said it then he will save his life and property from me except on trespassing the law (rights and conditions for which he will be punished justly), and his accounts will be with Allah.’ Abu Bakr said, ‘By Allah! I will fight those who differentiate between the Salat (prayer) and the Zakat, as Zakat is the compulsory right to be taken from the property (according to Allah’s orders). By Allah! If they refuse to pay me even a she-kid which they used to pay at the time of Allah’s messenger I would fight with them for withholding it.’ Then Umar said, ‘By Allah, it was nothing but Allah opened Abu Bakr’s chest towards the decision (to fight) and I came to know that his decision was right.'” Vol. 2, Bk. 23, No. 483
      “(Narrated Ikrima): Ali burnt some people and the news reached Ibn Abbas and he said, ‘Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the prophet said, “Don’t punish anybody with Allah’s punishment.” No doubt I would have killed them, for the prophet said, “If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.” Vol. 4, Bk. 52, No. 260
      “Narrated Abu Burda: Allah’s apostle sent Abu Musa and Mu’adh bin Jabal to Yemen. He sent each of them to administer a province as Yemen consisted of two provinces. The prophet said (to them), ‘Facilitate things for the people and do not make things difficult for them (Be kind and lenient (both of you) with the people, and do not be hard on them) and give the people good tidings and do not repulse them.’ So each of them went to carry on his job. So when any one of them toured his province and happened to come near (the border of the province of) his companion, he would visit him and greet him. Once Mu’adh toured that part of his state which was near (the border of the province of) his companion Abu Musa. Mu’adh came riding his mule till he reached Abu Musa and saw him sitting, and the people had gathered around him. Behold! There was a man tied with his hands behind his neck. Mu’adh said to Abu Musa, ‘O ‘Abdullah bin Qais! What is this?’ Abu Musa replied, ‘This man has reverted to Heathenism after embracing Islam.’ Mu’adh said, ‘I will not dismount till he is killed.’ Abu Musa replied, ‘He has been brought for this purpose, so come down.’ Mu’adh said, ‘I will not dismount till he is killed.’ So Abu Musa ordered that he be killed, and he was killed. Then Mu’adh dismounted…” Vol. 5, Bk. 59, No. 630

      RUNNING STONES AND TALKING TREES

      Muhammad erroneously believed that inanimate objects could actually speak and feel, and do other things like humans do:

      “Narrated Abdullah bin Umar: Allah’s messenger said, ‘You (i.e. Muslims) will fight against the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, ‘O Abdallah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.’ In another quotation: ‘The hour will not come until you fight against Jews.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 52, No. 176

      “Narrated Abdullah bin Masúd that he was asked, ‘As to who informed the prophet about the Jinns at night when they heard the Quran?’ He said that a tree informed the prophet about them.” Vol. 5, Bk. 58, No. 199

      “Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah: The prophet used to stand by a stem of a date-palm tree (while delivering a Khutba). When the pulpit was placed for him we heard that stem crying like a pregnant she-camel till the prophet got down from the pulpit and place his hand over it.” Vol. 2, Bk. 13, No. 41

      “Narrated (Abu Huraira): The prophet said, ‘The (people of) Bani Israel used to take bath naked (all together) looking at each other. Prophet Musa (Moses) used to take bath alone. They said, ‘By Allah! Nothing prevents Musa (Moses) from taking a bath with us except that he has a scrotal Hernia.’ So once Musa (Moses) went out to take a bath and put his clothes over a stone and then that stone ran away with his clothes. Musa (Moses) followed that stone saying, ‘My clothes, O stone! My clothes, O stone!’ till the people of Bani Israel saw him and said, ‘By Allah, Musa (Moses) has got no defect in his body.’ Musa (Moses) took his clothes and began to beat the stone.’ Abu Huraira added, ‘By Allah! There are still six or seven marks present on the stone from that excessive beating.'” Vol. 1, Bk. 5, No. 277

      GAS AND GARLIC

      Muhammad and his deity really disliked farting or passing wind:

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s messenger said, ‘The Salat (prayer) of a person who does Hadath (passes urine, stool or wind) is not accepted till he performs (repeats) the ablution.’ A person from Hadramout asked Abu Huraira, ‘What is Hadath?’ Abu Huraira replied, ‘Hadath means the passing of wind from the anus.'” Vol. 1, Bk. 4, No. 137
      “Narrated Abdullah bin Yazid Al-Ansari: He asked Allah’s messenger about a person who imagined to have passed wind during the Salat (prayer). Allah’s messenger replied: ‘He should not leave his Salat (prayer) unless he hears sound or smells something.'” Vol. 1, Bk. 4, No. 139

      According to Muhammad, when angels pray they say,

      “O Allah! Forgive him, as long as he keeps on sitting at his praying place and does not pass wind.” Vol. 1, Bk. 8, No. 466

      He also prohibited people coming to the mosque after eating garlic:
      “(Narrated ‘Ata): I heard Jabir bin Abdullah saying, ‘The prophet said, ‘Whoever eats (from) this plant (he meant garlic), should keep away from our mosque.’ I said, ‘What does he mean by that?’ He replied, ‘I think he means only raw garlic.'” Vol. 1, No. 813 — see also No. 814

      WHAT DO JINNS EAT?

      Muhammad claimed that Jinns (spirits) eat bones and animal dung! Vol. 5, Bk. 58, No. 200

      BLACKS AND SLAVES IN ISLAM

      Dreaming of a black woman can be a sign of disease:

      “Narrated Ibn Umar: The prophet said, ‘I saw (in a dream) a black woman with unkempt hair going out of Al-Madina and settling at Mahya’a, i.e. Al-Juhfa. I interpreted that as a symbol of epidemic of Al-Madina being transferred to that place (Al-Juhfa).'” Vol. 9, No. 161

      In fact, it will be a black man who will steal stones from the Ka’bah!

      “Narrated Ibn Abbas: The prophet said, ‘As if I am looking at him, a black person with thin legs plucking the stones of the Ka’bah one after the other.'” Vol. 2, Bk. 26, No. 665
      Muhammad also owned black slaves. For instance, Umar b. Al-Khattab came to Muhammad’s house and found that, “A black slave of Allah’s Apostle was sitting on the first step.” Vol. 6, Bk. 60, No. 435

      Here is another example:

      “Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s apostle was on a journey and he had a black slave called Anjasha, and he was driving the camels (very fast and there were women riding on those camels). Allah’s apostle said, ‘Waihaka (May Allah be merciful to you), O Anjasha! Drive slowly (the camels) with the glass vessels (women)!'” Vol. 8, Bk. 73, No. 182

      Muhammad not only owned slaves, but also sold black slaves for profit or exchanged them for others:

      Jabir reported: There came a slave and pledged allegiance to Allah’s apostle on migration; he (the prophet) did not know that he was a slave. Then there came his master and demanded him back, whereupon Allah’s Apostle said: Sell him to me. And he bought him for two black slaves, and he did not afterwards take allegiance from anyone until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or a free man). (Sahih Muslim, Book 010, Number 3901)

      These next hadiths show that Muhammad was anything but a mercy to all creatures:
      “Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah: A man decided that a slave of his would be manumitted after his death and later on he was in need of money, so the prophet took the slave and said, ‘Who will buy this slave from me?’ Nu’amin bin Abdullah bought him for such and such price and the prophet gave him the slave.'” Vol. 3, Bk. 34, No. 351

      “Narrated ‘Urwa on the authority of ‘Aisha: On the days of Mina, (11th, 12th, and 13th of Dhul-Hijjah) Abu Bakr came to her while two young girls were beating the tambourine and the prophet was lying covered with his clothes. Abu Bakr scolded them and the prophet uncovered his face and said to Abu Bakr, ‘Leave them, for these days are the days of ‘Id and the days of Mina.’ ‘Aisha further said, ‘Once the prophet was screening me and I was watching the display of black slaves in the Mosque and (‘Umar) scolded them. The prophet said, ‘Leave them. O Bani Arfida! (carry on), you are safe (protected)’.” Vol. 2, Bk. 15, No. 103

      One wonders why the selling of a slave was needed to cover his master’s debt, when the slave was to be freed following the death of his owner? Could Muhammad not have simply sold a piece of property or asked the creditor to cancel his debt for the sake of Allah? And why would he allow black slaves to be paraded around in his mosque? Was Muhammad running a slave trading business in the mosque, which is supposed to be a place where Allah, whom the Quran labels as the most merciful and most compassionate, is worshiped?

      HOLY SPITTLE AND SACRED CLEANSING

      That the obsession of Muhammad’s followers with their prophet bordered on the fanatical can readily be seen from the following narrations:

      “By Allah, whenever Allah’s apostle spat, the spittle would fall in the hand of one of them [i.e. the prophet’s companions] who would rub it on his face and skin.” Vol. 3, Bk. 50, No. 891

      “Narrated Jabir: The prophet came to (the grave of) Abdullah bin Ubai after his body was buried. The body was brought out and then the prophet put his saliva over the body and clothed it in his shirt.” Vol. 2, No. 360

      “Narrated Abu Musa: Then the prophet asked for a drinking bowl containing water and washed his hands and face in it, and then took a mouthful of water and threw it therein saying (to us), ‘Drink (some of it) and pour (some) over your faces and chests and be happy at the good tidings.'” Vol. 5, Bk. 59, No. 617

      “Narrated Abu Juhaifa: Allah’s messenger came to us at noon and water for ablution was brought to him. After he had performed ablution, the remaining water was taken by the people and they started smearing their bodies with it (as a blessed thing).” Vol. 1, Bk. 4, No. 187 and 188

      Can anyone deny that such devotion to Muhammad is not only bizarre or outright filthy and disgusting, but also idolatrous?

      ADAM THE NOT SO JOLLY GIANT

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: The prophet said, ‘Allah created Adam, and his height was 60 cubits.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 55, No. 543

      That makes Adam 90 feet tall! Presumably, Adam’s children would also be as tall as their father, a fact affirmed in this Hadith:

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: The prophet said, ‘Allah created Adam in his image sixty cubits (about 30 meters) in height… Since then the creation of Adam’s (offspring) (i.e., stature of human beings) is being diminished continuously up to the present time.'” Vol. 8, Bk. 74, No. 246

      To make matters worse, Muhammad actually believed that in paradise people would again become 90 feet tall!

      “Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s apostle said, ‘The first group of people who will enter Paradise, will be glittering like the full moon and those who will follow them, will glitter like the most brilliant star in the sky. They will not urinate, relieve nature, spit, or have any nasal secretions. Their combs will be of gold, and their sweat will smell like musk… Their wives will be houris. All of them will look alike and will resemble their father Adam (in statute), sixty cubits tall.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 55, No. 544

      There is no evidence whatsoever, either from ancient records or the fossil beds, which would indicate that human beings were as tall as 90 feet, or that mankind has been shrinking in height since Adam’s time. This is a serious scientific error.

      ANGEL GABRIEL — THE WINGED WONDER

      “Narrated Ibn Masûd: He (Ibn Masûd) said that the prophet had seen Jibrael (Gabriel) having 600 wings.” Vol. 4, Bk. 54, No. 455

      MUHAMMAD AND AISHA

      Muhammad was in his early fifties when he decided to make Aisha his wife. The only thing that makes this shocking is Aisha’s age:

      “Narrate Aisha: ‘My marriage (wedding) contract with the prophet was written when I was a girl of six (years)… Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Umm Rûmân, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my friends… unexpectedly Allah’s messenger came to me in the afternoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age.'” Vol. 5, Bk. 58, No. 234 — see also Vol. 7, No. 64
      It seems that this was the reason that Aisha’s father, Abu Bakr, initially objected to this marriage:

      “Narrated Aisha: The prophet asked Abu Bakr for [Aisha’s] hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said, ‘But I am your brother.’ The prophet said, ‘You are my brother in Allah’s religion and his Book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry.'” Vol. 7, Bk. 62, No. 18
      Even more disturbing is this next Hadith:

      “Narrated Umm Khalid bint Khalid: When I came from Ethiopia (to Al-Madina), I was a young girl. Allah’s messenger made me wear a sheet with marks on it. Allah’s messenger was rubbing those marks with his hands saying, ‘Sanah! Sanah!’ (i.e. good, good).” Vol. 5, Bk. 58, No. 214

      No further comment is necessary.

      THE EDIBLE MOUSE AND THE FLYING CURE

      “Narrated Maimuna: Allah’s messenger was asked regarding ghee (cooking butter) in which a mouse had fallen. He said, ‘Take out the mouse and throw away the ghee around it and use the rest.'” Vol. 1, Bk. 4, No. 236

      “Narrated (Abu Huraira): The prophet said, ‘If a housefly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease.'” Vol. 4, Bk. 54, No. 537

      If one were to do this there might be a possible outbreak of typhoid and cholera.1

      DISEASE PREVENTION

      In Vol. 7, Bk. 71, No. 591 we are told “that she (Aisha) heard the Prophet saying, ‘This black cumin is healing for all diseases except As-Sam.’ Aisha said, ‘what is As-Sam?’ He said ‘death.'”

      We must ask, can it cure cancer, aids, or even the common cold, if it is healing for all diseases? What do we do with this medicinal error and how does it reflect on Muhammad’s prophethood?

      What about the statement where Muhammad said that there are no contagious diseases?
      5380. Sa’id ibn Mina’ said, “I heard Abu Hurayra say that the Messenger of Allah said,

      ‘THERE IS NO CONTAGION and no omen nor hama nor bad luck in the month of Safar. One should run from a leper as one runs from a lion.”…

      (Sidenote: This Hadith makes sense. Why should one run from a leper if leprosy is not contagious? That is inconsistent. But coming from Muhammad this doesn’t surprise us.)

      LIII. THERE IS NO CONTAGION

      5438. Salim ibn ‘Abdullah and Hamza reported that ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar said that the Messenger of Allah said, “THERE IS NO CONTAGION and no bad omens. Bad luck may be in three: horses, women and houses.”…

      5440. Qatada related from Anas ibn Malik that the Prophet said, “THERE IS NO CONTAGION nor bad omens. I like the good sign.” They said, “What is the good sign?” He said, “A good word.” (Aisha Bewley, The Sahih Collection of al-Bukhari, Chapter 79. The Book of Medicine; *; capital emphasis ours)
      What do we say then about the Ebola virus or the other fast spreading diseases which we hear about on a consistent basis? These Ahadith pose a major stumbling block for those who embrace their authority.

      GENETICS

      Muhammad declared,

      “As for the resemblance of the child to its parents; if a man has sexual intercourse with his wife and gets a discharge first, the child will resemble the father, and if the woman gets her discharge first, the child will resemble her.” Vol. 4, Bk. 55, No. 546

      Scientists tell us that it is genetics, not “discharges”, that affect a child’s physical characteristics.

      To avoid this obvious and gross scientific error, certain Muslims have been forced to give new meanings to the Arabic text of this Hadith, forcing it to fit in with modern scientific understanding.2

      This of course is an attempt to compel the Hadith to say something which it does not say. Keep in mind that Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan who translated this hadith is a devout Muslim that has studied the Arabic meticulously and would therefore do his best to provide the most accurate translation possible. Moreover, Khan would have had other Muslim scholars analyze his collection before sending it to be published. In fact, here is how another Muslim scholar translates this same hadith:

      3151. It is related that Anas said, “When ‘Abdullah ibn Salam heard of the arrival of the Messenger of Allah in Madina, he went to him and said, ‘I will ask you about three things which only a Prophet knows. What is the first sign of the Hour? What is the first food that the people of the Garden will eat? And for what reason does a child resemble his father and for what reason does he resemble his maternal uncles?’ The Messenger of Allah said, ‘Jibril has just informed me about them.'” He said that ‘Abdullah said, “That is the enemy of the Jews among the angels.”

      The Messenger of Allah said, “The first sign of the Hour will be a fire which will gather people from the east to the west. The first food that the people of the Garden will eat will be the extra bit of the liver of the fish. As for the child’s resemblance, when the man has intercourse with the woman and his discharge is first, it will resemble him. If she has a discharge first, then it will resemble her.” He said, “I testify that you are the Messenger of Allah.” … (Bewley, The Sahih Collection of al-Bukhari, Chapter 64. Book of the Prophets, II: The words of Allah Almighty, “When your Lord said to the angels: ‘I am putting a khalif on the earth.” (2:30); *; bold and italic emphasis ours)

      This sounds the death knell to any Muslim attempt to translate the Hadith in any other way. That some Muslims mistranslate the Arabic in order to give new meanings to established Arabic words only reinforces the fact that both the Quran and Ahadith contain gross scientific and historical blunders.

      To solidify the case that Muhammad believed that sexual climaxes influenced physical characteristics we quote this tradition:

      “Narrated Zainab bint Um Salama: Um Sulaim ‘O Allah’s apostle! Verily Allah is not shy of (telling you) the truth. Is it essential for a woman to take a bath after she had a wet dream (nocturnal sexual discharges)?’ He said, ‘Yes, if she notices discharge. On that Um Salama laughed and said, ‘Does a woman get a (nocturnal sexual) discharge?’ He said, ‘How then does (here) son resemble her (his mother)?'” Vol. 8, Bk. 73, No. 113
      Obviously, the thing that a woman discharges during a wet dream is not chromosomes. It clearly refers to sexual orgasm, affirming that in Muhammad’s mind a child’s looks were influenced by whomever climaxed first.

      Even more fascinating is the fact that the previous Hadith, when read in context, incriminates Muhammad of plagiarism

      • Lucky ….you are the greatest dimwit braggadocio!! Braggadocio declared : “YOU DUMB PLUM HAVE GOT TO BE THE GREATEST CRETIN IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!”

        Oh yeah….at least ONE world record to my credit! Now I can sing the punjabi bangra song…sanso ne bandhi hey…doriya… rabse ne ye wada kiya…batiya na tuna naina…raam kasam… jite.

        You said : “Even more fascinating is the fact that the previous Hadith, when read in context, incriminates Muhammad of plagiarism.” But I have told you that ALL Hadiths ARE fake!! So what is fascinating about fake shit?

        Q 2:30 : “Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority.” They said, “Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?” Allah said, “Indeed, I know that which you do not know.”

        But the Angels knew in advance…HOW come?? Such should be your questions, Braggadocio!!!

        Short and to the point…. And then let the fanatics answer!!!!!

  3. This is addressed to wild mystic. Though there are contradictions and absurdities in the books of every religion, to point out them in a single religion is not fair and is a biased and one sided approach, I ask some questions to wild mystic. 1. As a thinking man is evolving so are religious concepts making them compatible to modern times, then why Quran is deemed as a final word about religion and God denying every other religion on earth ? 2. In modern times, are people of other religions are disbelievers even if they worship God, Ishwar and other Gods, different names of the same entity ? 3. Should the whole humanity convert to Islam in order to become the real believers or are they to be deemed as believers adhering to their respective beliefs ? 4. Since prophet’s exhortations were limited to a particular time, particular region that is Arabia, particular period, they are not applicable to whole of the humanity, so why rest of the world is being perceived as disbelievers even if they believe in the same entity which is called by different name and not as Allah ? 5. Why jehadi elements are bent on destruction of themselves and other innocent persons in the name of Islam ? 6. Why do Muslims in general defend these ignorant and gullible persons instead of condemning them in one voice ? 7. Are people apart from muslims required to be converted to Islam when muslims themselves are divided in many sects themselves and are engaged in mutual fighting ? If wild mystic you, my dear give a sincere and valid response to these questions that often arise in my mind, I shall be highly obliged to you. Since you are such a prolific commentator, I am very hopeful to get a crystal reply and not an opaque one which is generally observed. With regards.

  4. Madness can only spawn madness. Illness can only beget illness.
    Muhammad, by any measure, was an immoral man obsessed with sexual deviancy, narcissistic to the core, and if you combine this with the theory that he suffered from LEFT TEMPORAL LOBE EPILEPSY (his symptoms and behavior make him a poster child for this diagnosis – Google it if you dare…), further combined with his obvious’inferiority complex’ vis a vis Judaism and Christianty and decision to usurp and appropriate the scriptures of both for his own personal gain, well there you have the ‘perfect storm’ of ingredients that concocted the mad house of Islam. Muhammad, Prophet For Profit. To non muslims who read the Q’uran and read of the history of Muhammad, the overwhelming sense is that he is making it up as he goes along to suit his own personal desires. How can the followers of such a deranged miscreant exhibit and manifest anything other than a reflection of their inspiration? It’s no wonder the Islamic World is in permanent turmoil, that it’s ruled by barbarism, fear, and hatred, and has a pathological relationship with it’s own women. If it models itself on Muhammad and the Q’uran, it can’t be any other way. And don’t give me crap about not ‘respecting’ your ‘Prophet’. I , along with BILLIONS of other people, REJECT Muhammad as a prophet of anything. Let that sink in and deal with it. I might as well respect Adolph Hitler.

    WAKE UP STUPID MUSLIMS, LOOK AT THE REST OF THE WORLD — NOW LOOK AT DAR AL-ISLAM: WHAT IS THE COMMON DENOMINATOR THROUGH HISTORY THAT HAS MADE DAR AL-ISLAM SUCH A MESS? HINT: IT BEGINS WITH THE LETTER ‘Q’.

    • YO ROCKY,

      Well said!

      Allah & His Bootyful Prophet

      To help you understand how the prophet and his followers made a living in Medina, I have taken these verses from the Quran and the Sahih Bukhari Hadith, which are self explanatory and need no analysis from me. Read them and make up your own mind. I have only taken a snap shot and would encourage you to do your own research by using the Islamic websites http://www.thenoblequran.com and http://www.searchtruth.com for the Quran and Hadith. It’s mind blowing and does make the Somali Pirates look tame in comparison. Booty is a more civilized word for goods obtained from looting.
      Here are the verses :-
      Verses from the Quran (www.thenoblequran.com)
      Al-Anfal 8:41:
      And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad SAW)], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad SAW) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) – And Allâh is Able to do all things.
      Al-Ahzab 33:27:
      And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.

      Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me. 1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey. 2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due. 3. The Booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. 4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection). 5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.
      Book #2, Hadith #35:
      Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “The person who participates in (Holy battles) in Allah’s cause and nothing compels him to do so except belief in Allah and His Apostles, will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or Booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr). Had I not found it difficult for my followers, then I would not remain behind any sariya going for Jihad and I would have loved to be martyred in Allah’s cause and then made alive, and then martyred and then made alive, and then again martyred in His cause.”
      Book #8, Hadith #367:
      Narrated ‘Abdul ‘Aziz: Anas said, ‘When Allah’s Apostle invaded Khaibar, we offered the Fajr prayer there yearly in the morning) when it was still dark. The Prophet rode and Abu Talha rode too and I was riding behind Abu Talha. The Prophet passed through the lane of Khaibar quickly and my knee was touching the thigh of the Prophet . He uncovered his thigh and I saw the whiteness of the thigh of the Prophet. When he entered the town, he said, ‘Allahu Akbar! Khaibar is ruined. Whenever we approach near a (hostile) nation (to fight) then evil will be the morning of those who have been warned.’ He repeated this thrice. The people came out for their jobs and some of them said, ‘Muhammad (has come).’ (Some of our companions added, “With his army.”) We conquered Khaibar, took the captives, and the Booty was collected. Dihya came and said, ‘O Allah’s Prophet! Give me a slave girl from the captives.’ The Prophet said, ‘Go and take any slave girl.’ He took Safiya bint Huyai. A man came to the Prophet and said, ‘O Allah’s Apostles! You gave Safiya bint Huyai to Dihya and she is the chief mistress of the tribes of Quraiza and An-Nadir and she befits none but you.’ So the Prophet said, ‘Bring him along with her.’ So Dihya came with her and when the Prophet saw her, he said to Dihya, ‘Take any slave girl other than her from the captives.’ Anas added: The Prophet then manumitted her and married her.” Thabit asked Anas, “O Abu Hamza! What did the Prophet pay her (as Mahr)?” He said, “Her self was her Mahr for he manumitted her and then married her.” Anas added, “While on the way, Um Sulaim dressed her for marriage (ceremony) and at night she sent her as a bride to the Prophet . So the Prophet was a bridegroom and he said, ‘Whoever has anything (food) should bring it.’ He spread out a leather sheet (for the food) and some brought dates and others cooking butter. (I think he (Anas) mentioned As-SawTq). So they prepared a dish of Hais (a kind of meal). And that was Walrma (the marriage banquet) of Allah’s Apostle .”
      Book #34, Hadith #432:
      Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah’s Apostle he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get female captives as our share of Booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interrupt us?” The Prophet said, “Do you really do that? It is better for you not to do it. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.
      Book #38, Hadith #503:
      Narrated Marwan bin Al-Hakam and Al-Miswar bin Makhrama: When the delegates of the tribe of Hawazin after embracing Islam, came to Allah’s Apostle, he got up. They appealed to him to return their properties and their captives. Allah’s Apostle said to them, “The most beloved statement to me is the true one. So, you have the option of restoring your properties or your captives, for I have delayed distributing them.” The narrator added, Allah’s Apostle c had been waiting for them for more than ten days on his return from Taif. When they realized that Allah’s Apostle would return to them only one of two things, they said, “We choose our captives.” So, Allah’s Apostle got up in the gathering of the Muslims, praised Allah as He deserved, and said, “Then after! These brethren of yours have come to you with repentance and I see it proper to return their captives to them. So, whoever amongst you likes to do that as a favor, then he can do it, and whoever of you wants to stick to his share till we pay him from the very first Booty which Allah will give us then he can do so.” The people replied, “We agree to give up our shares willingly as a favor for Allah’s Apostle.” Then Allah’s Apostle said, “We don’t know who amongst you has agreed and who hasn’t. Go back and your chiefs may tell us your opinion.” So, all of them returned and their chiefs discussed the matter with them and then they (i.e. their chiefs) came to Allah’s Apostle to tell him that they (i.e. the people) had given up their shares gladly and willingly.
      Book #52, Hadith #46:
      Narrated Abu Huraira: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “The example of a Mujahid in Allah’s Cause– and Allah knows better who really strives in His Cause—-is like a person who fasts and prays continuously. Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war Booty.”
      Book #52, Hadith #104:
      Narrated ‘Urwa Al-Bariqi: The Prophet said, “Good will remain (as a permanent quality) in the foreheads of horses (for Jihad) till the Day of Resurrection, for they bring about either a reward (in the Hereafter) or Booty (in this world.”
      Book #52, Hadith #153:
      Narrated ‘Umar: The properties of Bani An-Nadir which Allah had transferred to His Apostle as Fai Booty were not gained by the Muslims with their horses and camels. The properties therefore, belonged especially to Allah’s Apostle who used to give his family their yearly expenditure and spend what remained thereof on arms and horses to be used in Allah’s Cause.
      Book #52, Hadith #286:
      Narrated Salama bin Al-Akwa: “An infidel spy came to the Prophet while he was on a journey. The spy sat with the companions of the Prophet and started talking and then went away. The Prophet said (to his companions), ‘Chase and kill him.’ So, I killed him.” The Prophet then gave him the belongings of the killed spy (in addition to his share of the war Booty).
      Book #52, Hadith #301:
      Narrated Anas: The Prophet performed ‘Umra, setting out from Al-Jarana where he distributed the war Booty of Hunain.
      Book #53, Hadith #325:
      Narrated ‘Aisha: (mother of the believers) After the death of Allah ‘s Apostle Fatima the daughter of Allah’s Apostle asked Abu Bakr As-Siddiq to give her, her share of inheritance from what Allah’s Apostle had left of the Fai (i.e. Booty gained without fighting) which Allah had given him. Abu Bakr said to her, “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Our property will not be inherited, whatever we (i.e. prophets) leave is Sadaqa (to be used for charity).” Fatima, the daughter of Allah’s Apostle got angry and stopped speaking to Abu Bakr, and continued assuming that attitude till she died. Fatima remained alive for six months after the death of Allah’s Apostle. She used to ask Abu Bakr for her share from the property of Allah’s Apostle which he left at Khaibar, and Fadak, and his property at Medina (devoted for charity). Abu Bakr refused to give her that property and said, “I will not leave anything Allah’s Apostle used to do, because I am afraid that if I left something from the Prophet’s tradition, then I would go astray.” (Later on) Umar gave the Prophet’s property (of Sadaqa) at Medina to ‘Ali and ‘Abbas, but he withheld the properties of Khaibar and Fadak in his custody and said, “These two properties are the Sadaqa which Allah’s Apostle used to use for his expenditures and urgent needs. Now their management is to be entrusted to the ruler.” (Az-Zuhrl said, “They have been managed in this way till today.”)
      Book #53, Hadith #359:
      Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: ‘Uthman did not join the Badr battle because he was married to one of the daughters of Allah’s Apostle and she was ill. So, the Prophet said to him. “You will get a reward and a share (from the war Booty) similar to the reward and the share of one who has taken part in the Badr battle.”
      Book #59, Hadith #53:
      Narrated Ibn ‘Umar: On the day of Khaibar, Allah’s Apostle divided (the war Booty of Khaibar) with the ratio of two shares for the horse and one-share for the foot soldier. (The sub-narrator, Nafi’ explained this, saying, “If a man had a horse, he was given three shares and if he had no horse, then he was given one share.”)
      Book #59, Hadith #625:
      Narrated ‘Abdullah: When it was the day of Hunain, Prophet favored some people over some others (in the distribution of the booty). He gave Al-Aqra’ one-hundred camels and gave Uyaina the same, and also gave other people (of Quraish). A man said, “Allah’s Pleasure was not the aim, in this distribution.” I said, “I will inform the Prophet (about your statement).” The Prophet said, “May Allah bestow Mercy on Moses, for he was troubled more this but he remained patient.”
      JIHAD

      There was a time, not so long ago, when the exponents of jihad minced no words and pulled no punches. They were brutally frank in spelling out what jihad really meant.

      But times have changed, particularly after the collapse of Christianity in the West and the rise of modern rationalism and humanism. Standards of moral judgment have increasingly tended to become universal, and no statement of faith can escape scrutiny simply because it is made in a book hailed as holy by some people. Defenders of jihad have been forced to develop an apologetics. They are now trying to protect by means of scholarship a doctrine which has so far been sustained by means of the sword.

      Let no one say any more that jihad does not mean what it has meant all along in the blood-soaked history of Islam.

      I wonder why scholarship should be needed for making people see what the ordinary common sense can see straight away. There is plenty of evidence that the common sense of the Pagans of Arabia had seen Islam for what it was worth, when Muhammad proclaimed his prophethood. For common sense is after all a combination of natural reason and natural moral conscience which all human beings share in greater or lesser measure.
      Jihad is one of the basic doctrines of Islam, but the average person’s knowledge of it is both superficial and unsatisfactory.
      In truth, jihad is war for the destruction of infidels (kafirs) and infidelity (kufr). To obviate prevailing misconception, it is important to explain the meaning of jihad from the Quran, the Hadith and the corpus of theological works collectively going by the name of Sharia. As jihad is a basic doctrine of Islam and as its focus is on the infidel, it is not fit that people should go on cherishing their deep-seated delusion regarding its meaning.
      Even the average Muslim’s knowledge of this doctrine is superficial. Every Islamic tenet is spread over the 6,000 and odd verses of the Quran in a desultory, haphazard manner. Few Muslims are competent enough to assemble the relevant verses enjoining jihad in order to get a systematic, coherent meaning. I hope this information will therefore be useful to non Muslims and Muslims alike.
      Jihad in the Quran
      The Quran does not discuss a single Islamic tenet systematically and in conformity with the arrangement of its chapters. The combined body of Revelations from Allah which constitute the Holy Book of Islam appeared to the Prophet without any logical sequence during the 23 years of his prophetic career (609 to 632 AD), and this fact accounts for its haphazard arrangement. The Quran has 114 chapters and some six thousand verses. The verses of jihad, like those explaining any other doctrine, remain spread over a great many chapters. This is the reason why, to an ordinary reader, the knowledge of any and every Islamic doctrine appears difficult, the doctrine of jihad being no exception.
      A second and more important reason for the difficulty is that the Quranic verses do not deliver their full meaning without knowledge of their relevance in the Prophet’s career. The Quran is not the only source book of Islam; the so-called Hadith collections share that role equally. Literally hadith means a report. In Islam’s technical vocabulary it stands for any report of the Prophet’s actions or sayings as embodied in canonical collections also called the Hadith in a collective sense. In Arabic the plural of hadith is ahadith; these describe what the Prophet did or what he said. As a Muslim would put it, these narrate the Prophet’s Sunnah (practice of the Prophet). In one sense, the importance of the Hadith literature in the life of a Muslim is even greater than that of the Quran. A Quranic text might admit of different meanings. Certainly different commentators could suggest different meanings of the same Quranic verse. But the relevant hadith, in explaining its meaning as exemplified in the Prophet’s practice, renders the meaning unique for all time to come. Even ahadith at times are found to be conflicting.
      Besides the Hadith, another source book for the Sunnah are the so-called sira or the biographies of the Prophet. These do not belong to the body of Islam’s canonical literature but in so far as the events described in them are considered genuine by the ulema or the collectors of the Hadith, these bring out the meaning of Quranic verses even more clearly than the Hadith. Thus the genuine biographies of the Prophet are important source books for Sunnah.
      After these preliminary remarks the reader must understand that the literal meaning of jihad is “effort” or “striving” – a meaning, to all intents and purposes, unrelated to the sanguinary activities with which the word has become inextricably woven. The technical expression used in the Quran is jihad fi Sabilillah, “effort in the way of Allah”. But even this expression does not explicitly mention any sanguinary conflict, and if we concentrate on meanings of words alone, we are likely to be led astray. When closely examined, the eighth surah (chapter) of the Quran, the Surah Anfal, and the ninth sûrah entitled Taubah are the truly jihadic surahs. But jihad is enjoined in many other chapters. Perhaps the most significant verse in this connection is Quran 8:39 which, in meaning, is almost identical with Quran 2:193.
      These declare: “Fight them until persecution is no more and religion is all for Allah.”
      In other words, Allah in 8:39 and 2:193 enjoins perpetual war for the destruction of the persecuting Qoreish of Mecca, and, by the same token, for the abolition of all non-Islamic religions the world over. Cf. N. J. Dawood’s rendering of the same verse, “Make war on them until idolatry is no more and Allah’s religion reigns supreme”, brings out the meaning more explicitly. This according to the Quran is the best “striving in the way of Allah”. This is Jihad fi Sabilillah in its most comprehensive meaning.
      (2) Is this war allegorical? In the 74th verse of Sûrah Nisã, Allah says very clearly:
      “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Who so fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or victorious, on him we shall bestow a vast reward.”
      This verse clearly shows that there is nothing allegorical or metaphysical in the nature of war that is jihad; it is armed war and nothing else. The idea has been further explained in another verse which says:
      “Hast thou not seen those unto whom it was said: Withhold your hands and establish worship and pay the poor-due? But when fighting was prescribed for them, behold! a party of them fear mankind even as they fear Allah or with greater fear, and say: Our Lord! why hast Thou ordained fighting for us? If only Thou wouldst give us respite for a while. I Say: The comfort of this world is scant; the Hereafter will be better for him that
      wardeth off evil” (Quran 4:77).
      This verse describes the benefits of jihad to be enjoyed in the hereafter. Also it clearly shows that, instead of “withholding one’s hand”, jihad requires the waging of unremitting armed conflict. Obviously, this verse descended for the instruction of those Muslims who had been pleading against bloodshed and wanting “respite” from the duty of engaging in murderous confrontations. Historically too this verse is rather important. Before the Migration (to Medina) the number of Muslims (in Mecca) was not large, but even among that small number there were war-mongers whom Allah had to restrain as the issue of war in Mecca was dim. This comes out clearly in the first half of the verse. On the other hand, if the traditional date of the surah to which the whole verse belongs be accepted, the second half of the verse shows that after the reverse at the Battle of Uhud (625 AD), the Muslims of Medina wanted to settle down to a peaceful existence. This second half was intended to rouse them to renewed warlike effort, and to revive their drooping spirits. Not only that. The verse seems to imply that over and above the war-mongers there existed a body of Muslims who were essentially peace-living, and it required all the eloquence of Allah and his Prophet to rouse them and goad them into unflinching bloodshed. The lure of a felicitous hereafter was held up before them, and it was made clear that the abrogation of Meccan pacifism was final and irrevocable.
      (3) The extent of violence and bloodshed permitted in jihad is also clearly stated in the Koran. The 5th verse of Surah Taubah makes no bones about the matter. Allah says in so many words:
      “When the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them, besiege them and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free.”
      The meaning of this verse is clear enough. “Profess Islam or else die” – such is the upshot of this verse expressed in the most transparent language possible. But clearer even than this is the declaration embodied in the 67th verse of Surah Anfãl, which says:
      “It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. Ye desire the lure of this world but Allah desireth (for you) the hereafter.”
      The historical background of this particular verse is important. Every student of Islamic history knows that the first landmark in the world-conquering mission of Islam was the Battle of Badr (624 AD). For the Qureishite idolaters of Mecca who fell into Muslim hands in that war, a proposal was mooted that all those captives be let off in lieu of adequate ransom. The idea was to earn some money by sparing the lives of the captured Qureish. Historians attribute this proposal to have originated from Abu Bakr. Another suggestion came from Umar who would have all the idolaters slaughtered. The Prophet accepted Abu Bakr’s suggestion and, after killing a handful, let off the rest of the prisoners in lieu of some ransom money. Evidently this was not to the liking of Allah who would have a “slaughter in the land” rather than that his devotees should opt for “the lure of this world” – an expression which evidently stands for the ransom money accepted by the Prophet. As Mohammed Pickthall puts it,
      “The Prophet took the verses as a reproof, and they are generally understood to mean that no quarter ought to have been given in that first battle.”
      The sanguinary nature of jihad comes out in this episode with the uttermost clarity.
      (4) A variant of this ransom money was the famous jizyah or poll-tax or capitation-tax as it has been variously rendered. Literally it means “retribution tax” – the retribution for obstinacy in refusing to renounce kufr (infidelity). The Revelation enjoining the institution of this tax also occurs in the Quran. Surah Taubah declares with thunderous clarity:
      “Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the last day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His Messenger and follow not the religion of truth, until they pay the tribute (jizya) readily, being brought low” (Quran 9:29). For “readily” most versions have “with their own hands”. Actually in the law books the prescription is that jizyah has to be paid in person.
      This verse is of the greatest historical significance, and to explain it we must first of all know the meaning of the expression “those who have been given the Scripture”. The Arabic original of the expression, Ahl-ul-Kitãb, and the English phrase “People of the Book”, is important.
      In orthodox Islam the term Kitãbî stands for Jews and Christians. This is because the Quran recognizes the Jewish Scripture Taurãt (=Old Testament) and the Christian Gospels Injîl (=Evangel=New Testament) as Revelations equally authentic with the Quran but superseded, as this very verse indicates, only by the latter. The non-Kitãbîs or non-Scriptuaries of the world are, in the Quran, designated as mushrik (=idolaters). With this explanation, the verse in question simply states that the lives of Scriptuaries may be spared in jihad, provided they pay the poll-tax “in humility and with their own hands”. The verse is silent regarding idolaters; it does not specify if their lives too can be spared in lieu of jizyah. But as mentioned earlier, Islamic tenets do not derive from the Quran alone. There occur ahadith – not recognized by all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence – which are supposed to mention the letting off by the Prophet of certain idolatrous (non-Arab) tribes in lieu of the poll-tax. The ulema, even to this day, are not unanimous whether Hindus deserve such immunity, even though the Sultans and Padishahs of Delhi had granted it by recognizing their Hindu subjects as kharãjguzãr (=payer of the poll-tax) and zimmî (=held in tutelage). Even the fanatical Aurangzeb did not controvert this usage.
      (5) Not only the poll-tax or ransom money. Another fruit of jihad is “plunder” or “spoils of ghanîmah” as the Quran puts it. The 69th verse of Surah Anfãl declares:
      “Eat ye the spoils of war. They are lawful and pure.”
      To sum up, the following are the rules and instructions regarding jihad as laid down in the Quran:
      (a) The ultimate object of jihad is to Islamize the whole of humanity. Since the Prophet’s sojourn in Medina, this duty has been permanently enjoined on Muslims over the length and breadth of the world.
      (b) The immediate objects of jihad are four in number: (1) spread of Islam by war; (2) the destruction of infidels; (3) jizyah; and (4) plunder. Plunder in jihad is actually twofold in nature. Plunder of property as well as enslavement of the female and child population of the vanquished infidels are both recognized as ghanîmah.
      (c) For Scriptuaries the imposition of jizyah is the rule, just as for idolaters the rule is mass-slaughter. But there are many exceptions to this general rule. Mass-slaughter of Jews in jihad is eminently permissible. On the other hand, even idolaters can be let off on payment of the poll-tax. The Quran has not published any rigorous rule regarding these matters.
      (d) Jihad is by no means a war for self-defense. Historically the verse “kill the idolaters wherever you find them” (Quran 9:5) forms an item in the “immunity” granted to the Prophet in 631 AD regarding his obligations to the idolaters of Arabia. But as in every verse of the Quran, the implication of such immunity in respect of a particular set of infidels embraced in due course idolaters of any and every country of the world. Such an injunction is necessarily informed with the spirit of extreme aggressiveness. For those who plead that the call of jihad is an injunction for self-defense, the so-called immunity verses of the 9th surah are the best refutation; but there are many other verses which confute the plea.
      In conclusion it is only necessary to add that according to the Quran, the duty of jihad for any and every Muslim of the world preponderates over all other Islamic duties. This is brought out most clearly in verses 9:19-22, but these are by no means the only verses with a similar import.
      In these verses Allah makes an estimate of the relative excellence of a Muslim who engages in jihad as contrasted with another who is engaged in pacific Islamic duties:
      “Count ye the slaking of a pilgrim’s thirst and tendence of the Inviolable Place of Worship (i.e. the Kaaba) as (equal to the worth of him) who believeth in Allah and the Last Day, and striveth in the way of Allah (i.e. engages in jihad). They are not equal in the sight of Allah. Those who believe and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in the way of Allah are of much greater worth in Allah’s sight.” (Quran 9:19-22).
      The meaning of these verses is clear enough. The “greater worth” of the mujahid in the sight of Allah necessarily renders him fit to obtain a greater reward here as well as hereafter. The reward here is an exclusive share in the spoils of war which is denied to the sedentary Muslim. Also Quran 4:95 where sedentary Muslims are specifically mentioned and shrugged off. The reward hereafter is everlasting residence in the highest heaven which the Hadith literature designates as Jannãt-ul firdaus. It is to that literature that we must turn now to see how Allah’s injunctions are confirmed and, in fact, added to in the Prophet’s Sunnah.

      Jihad in the Hadith
      The Quran is canonical scripture par excellence, and is common to all sections of Muslims. But the Hadith of the Sunnis is not the same as the Hadith of the Shias. It seems there is hesitancy even amongst the ulema in making the Hadith literature easily available to infidels. At any rate, their enthusiasm for making the Quran accessible to one and all is not matched by a similar effort towards popularizing the Hadith literature. This is perfectly understandable if we consider the fact that the language used in the Hadith literature at times borders on extreme coarseness and obscenity. It stands to reason that the ulema would not want to display this portion of their religious merchandise before the eyes of unsympathetic infidels. But this very fact has rendered the work of scholarship difficult. One has to be not only a competent Arabist but has also to run the gauntlet of ulemaic apposition to secure authentic works of Hadith. The scholarly searcher has to beware of the bowdlerized and severely edited works of Hadith which would meet him at every step in his research. With this warning, I would lead the reader to a brief discussion of the Hadith literature of the Sunnis.
      The ahadith accepted by the Sunnis as canonical have been collected in as many as six works. These in Arabic are called Sihah Sittah which in plain English means “the six authentics”. All these are considered canonical, but the collections by (1) Imam Bukhari and (2) Imam Muslim are supposed to be the most authentic of all. Those by (3) Tirmizi, (4) Abu Dau’d, (5) Abu Nasa’i and (6) Ibn Majah are the other four to make up the six. Another popular collection is Mishkat-ul-Masabih (=niche of lamp), which, besides containing ahadith from the authentic collections, contains a few more which are held in high esteem among Muslims without actually counting as canonical. Each of these collections has a separate section devoted to the subject of jihad. It would require a lot of hard work to analyze all these collections critically. The reader must be content with citations from Imam Muslim and Mishkat alone.
      For a full understanding of a hadith, it is important to have some knowledge of its narrator. The Hadith of course records the Prophet’s sayings and doings, but it does so through his Companions who, in Arabic, are designated as Sahabah. The Hadith in fact is a collection of first-hand reports – those proceeding from certain Companions regarding what they heard from the Prophet’s own lips or what they found the Prophet doing at a certain juncture. Among these Companions, the most famous was Ayesha, the Prophet’s child-wife and his favorite. The other narrators include such names as Abu Hurairah, Jabir, Anas bin Malik, Abu Sayeed, Abu Musa, the second Caliph Umar and a host of others.
      What does the Hadith say on the subject of jihad? The most important piece of information it contains is that the Prophet, in course of his ten years stay at Medina till his death, had engaged in as many as 82 jihads of which 26 he commanded in person. These 26 jihads are called ghazwahs indicating that he became a ghazi by slaying kafirs and coming out victorious. The Hadith also tells us that most of these ghazwahs were in the nature of raids or swooping down upon the enemy without previous notice. The Hadith also gives details regarding the vast wealth and the great number of men, women and children he captured in these ghazwahs. Before we give some idea of this ghanimah (plunder), it is important to learn how the Quranic Revelations regarding jihad are confirmed by the Hadith.
      (1) That jihad is the greatest duty of a Muslim is described in the Hadith without any scope for doubt or ambiguity. According to Imam Muslim,
      “It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah said: One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did express any desire (or determination) for Jihad died the death of a hypocrite.” (Sahih Muslim, No. 4696).
      To get a clear understanding of this hadith it is necessary, first of all, to understand the meaning of the term “hypocrite”. The Arabic munafiq which is usually used for this term has a very specialized meaning in the Quran. It refers to those people of Medina who, having given shelter to the Prophet and his followers, had gradually grown disenchanted with them because of their violence and cruel character, but did not dare rise in open rebellion against them. The leader of this disaffected Medinese faction was Abdullah bin Ubayy, a name cursed and reprobated in Islam for all time to come. The Quran itself has cursed these so-called hypocrites with words of the harshest denunciation and scorn. The Hadith has announced that their reward is the lowest layer of hell – a whole layer below the one allotted to idolaters.
      With this background it is clear that the foregoing hadith pronounces the waging of jihad as a Muslim’s supreme duty, failing which he is asked to cherish a fervent desire for it so that the terrible fate of a munafiq does not overtake him in the hereafter. In a word, the Hadith declares even more uncompromisingly than the Quran itself that a pacifist Muslim is not a Muslim at all.
      (2) It is clear then that the mujahid’s reward in the hereafter should be superior to that of a non-combatant Muslim. We have seen that the Quran pronounces as much when it allots for a mujahid a “greater reward” than that for a peace-loving believer. The extent of its greatness is described in a hadith as follows:
      “It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Said Khudri that the Messenger of Allah said to him (Abu Said): Whoever cheerfully accepts Allah as his Lord, Islam as his religion and Muhammad as his Apostle, is necessarily entitled to enter Paradise. (But) there is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade one hundred (higher) and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal to the height of the heaven from the earth. Abu Said said: What is that act? He replied: Jihad in the way of Allah! Jihad in the way of Allah. (Sahih Muslim, No. 4645).
      This hadith clearly indicates that the difference between a pacifist Muslim and a mujahid Muslim is as great as the difference between heaven and earth – the pacifist’s reward rising to no higher than earthly eminences.
      (3) Ahãdith that refer to the blood-soaked nature of jihad are not rare. No. 4549 of Mishkat has the following:
      “According to the venerable Abu Musa, Allah’s Messenger has said: The portals of heaven lie under the shadow of the sword. On hearing this, a lean and emaciated man stood up and said: O Abu Musa, did you hear this hadith with your own ears? “Yes”, said Abu Musa, and then and there the man went up to his companions and said: I bid you salaam. So saying he broke the sheath of his sword and proceeded towards the enemies. He killed many with that sword and ultimately attained martyrdom himself.”
      Clearly the sword is the Muslim’s best passport to heaven. The Prophet’s own conviction comes out with singular intensity in the following hadith. For those who want to set up Islam and its Prophet as devoted to the cause of peace this hadith bears reading and re-reading:
      “It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Hurairah who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah say: I would not stay behind (when) an expedition (for Jihad was being mobilized) if it were (not) going to be too hard upon the believers. By the Being in whose Hand is my life, I love that I should be killed in the way of Allah; then I should be brought back to life and be killed again in His way.” (Sahih Muslim, No. 4631).
      (4) Peace and Islam are in fact wholly at variance. The Prophet’s withering contempt for religions of peace comes out in the following hadith with breath-taking intensity:
      “Said the Venerable Abu Umama: On a certain occasion we went out with the Prophet on a campaign. One man among us was passing by a well standing by the side of a field studded with green vegetation. The spot roused in his mind a strange longing (for a life of seclusion, and he thought): How glorious would it be if I could renounce the vanities of the world and reside in this spot (for the rest of my days). He sought the permission of Allah’s Messenger. Said His Highness: (Listen to me, O man of little understanding): I was not sent down (by Allah) to preach the religion of Jews and Christians. To keep oneself busy in the way of Allah for a single morning or afternoon is better than the whole earth and whatever (wealth) it possesses. And to get imprisoned in the field of battle is better than being engaged in surplus prayers for as many as 60 whole years.” (Mishkat, No. 4489).
      This hadith indicates that even the partial pacifism of Judaism and Christianity was not acceptable to the Prophet of Islam. In an epoch when the Christians propagated their religion with the sword, the Prophet was not agreeable to even their theoretical pacifism.
      (5) Quite a few ahadith bring out the fact that the pre-eminent aim of jihad is the expansion of Islam by war. We have already seen that this is preached in the Quran itself. The following hadith not only reiterates the aim but also explains the sequence of objectives which a mujahid is supposed to strive for:
      “Fight in the name of Allah and the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. Invite them to (accept) Islam. If they refuse to accept Islam, accept from them the jizya. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them. (Sahih Muslim, No. 4294).
      It is only necessary to add that, in this hadith at least, the sequence does not seem to include ghanîmah (plunder). The triad of aims discussed here seems to exclude plunder of infidel property and enslavement of infidel population as aims of independent importance. This gap, however, is adequately filled in other ahãdith.
      (6) At this point it is important to understand the meaning of two technical expressions related to jihad. The expression ghazi stands for a victorious “slayer of infidels”. But there is another expression, shahid (witness), which means “the person who attains martyrdom by offering evidence (shahadah) to the truth of Islam by fighting infidels.
      There are ahadith describing the best manner of shahadah (evidence) offered by a mujahid who has become a martyr.
      (A question arose as to) “what kind of martyrdom in jihad is the best. Said Allah’s Messenger: When a martyr sends (an infidel’s) blood streaming, he should (before falling dead) cut off the feet of the horse carrying (the said infidel). (Mishkãt, No. 4530).
      This hadith brings out the blood-lust of the mujahid with perfect candor. The translator commenting on this hadith says:
      “Sending an infidel’s blood streaming and wounding his mount – these two items indicate the martyr’s seeking of death after delivering the finishing stroke to his enemy. The emphasis here is on the mujahid’s realization of his full remuneration in jihad in life and property”. This analysis needs no further comment.
      The Hadith literature has many other things to say on jihad. Summing up the ones I have mentioned, one can say that it retains all the injunctions of the Quran and in fact adds quite a few things more. (1) That jihad is the supreme duty of a Muslim is preached with greater intensity in the Hadith in the light of the Prophet’s impassioned utterances regarding what may be called his “aim of life”. (2) The objectives of Islamic expansion, jizyah and infidel-slaughter are enumerated in the Hadith seriatim, – the Quran does not mention such sequence. (3) The full realization of a martyr’s remuneration in life and property is explained in the Hadith with supreme emphasis – the Quran lacks such candor, although the admonition for killing the infidel and destroying him to the uttermost limit are implicit, and sometimes explicit, in the Quran. (4) The relative pacifism of the Jews and the Christians is emphatically rejected in the Hadith – the Quran is silent on the subject.

    • Lucky, you have truly become a sick dude….and maybe it is the punishment you are receiving from some higher authority. Accept the fact that the Quran IS the best Book on morality, respect to our women who are worth more than the diamonds on Venus where Lakshmi Devi has migrated to.

      Don’t you witness that from the Muslim friends you have? We live within the Muslim society and they are very good people and so are all others. Why criticise their beliefs when they do NOT even care with what others believe. I think you have become bankrupt and should come out of your shell of pseudo-ship and become a person again to be able to do business with us.

      Is this what your father taught you to attack consistently other people’s beliefs?

      Though my personal beliefs matter less here but do I poke my nose in others beliefs? No, my comments are based on truth. If you think that the Quran is forged, then why don’t you try writing your own principles on ethics and morality? Come on….give us something more concrete and not copy pastes of your past comments!!

  5. Rahul Raj ji,

    As is now apparent to anyone in the entire world with radio, TV or internet access, the daily assault on our sensibilities by the practitioners of ‘The Religion of Peace’ of innumerable beastly and murderous behavior, so incessant as to be, unfortunately, numbing… we just want to look away and dismiss it as impossible.. yes, we WANT to believe propagandists such as wildmystic , no ‘religion’ could possibly be this evil. Yet, unfortunately, we live in Tolkienish Times, so to speak, where Orcs, Goblins, Balrogs, Urcs, Wargs are on the move all over the earth, spewing venom, inspired and commanded by ‘Sauron’, aka, ‘Muhammed’, from Mordor , aka ‘Mecca’. What else can you make of this cyclical 14 century explosion of hatred and violence originating from the Arabian Peninsula.. at times, the forces of good combine to stop the spread and beat this demon back into it’s desert lair, but when the time and opportunity is right.. and mostly, when the courage and will of good men fails — the minions of Sauron-Muhammed go on the march again.. and again.

    On the one hand, this back and forth with wildmystic is an exercise in futility. On the other hand, Rahul, let him speak. Let him expose himself and his evil creed for the whole world to see.

    wildmystic, don’t delude yourself — the whole world is recoiling in horror at the spectacle of ‘The Religion of Peace’, the whole world wants it to just ‘go away’ like a bad dream, a plague, a bad smell… but once the world wakes up to the reality of the muslim Orcs running rampant in our lands, good people will rally and drive the muslim back under his holy rock in the desert.

  6. Wildmystic,

    You said, “Oh dumb Wildmystic,”

    See how suddenly the false façade of “dear, respected” went. This indicates clearly that I have got to him. It is interesting to note, how many poor debaters resort to this fallacy. Yet, this shows their weakness in ways”

    Yes because you lack intelligence, and unwilling to accept what is reasonable, so I don’t have any better word for you. May you help me choose a better word for a person like you. Its not an insult but an adjective for you. Also, let me clarify that is not a debate, neither you are an opponent debater.

    You said, “When it suited him, the poor fellow denied these comments were discussion – here he blows that nonsense out of the window. Proving that I was right over one more thing.”

    Aha!! You caught me? Debates and discussion are between two intelligent people, but this is not in our case. It is senseless comments from your side, for which I don’t want to spend my precious time.
    ____________________________________________________________

    You added, “Once again – it easy to notice that too is copy and paste.

    When he pastes in dictionary – it says the word Daaha to mean:

    to spread out, to level, to flatten, unroll.

    Yet, he changes this to:

    “So, I can say confidently, that most of the Arabic dictionaries translates the word’Dahaha’ referring to a flat surface.”

    Does it? Where?”

    Ans:- Now I don’t know how many times I have to repeat it. What does Allah mean when he says, that ‘Earth is flat like a carpet’?

    Its too hard to make brain washed, blind believers and followers of Muhammad to make them understand simple things. In the entire Quran there is not a single statement which says Earth is spherical, or even circle. All its says is spread out, like a carpet. Now we all know carpet is not spherical in shape. Please anyone explain this man how does a carpet look.

    Wildmystic, does any of the word from dictionary, “to spread out, to level, to flatten, unroll.”
    mean a spherical body? In fact all the meanings refer to a flat object. How hard it is to understand? There is no reference of any spherical thing, in this meaning of ‘Dahaha’.

    Thanks

    • “Yes because you lack intelligence, and unwilling to accept what is reasonable, so I don’t have any better word for you.”

      Wrong – you are hate-monger. Spreading irrational hate of Muslims and Islam. So, it is OBVIOUS you would make up such things about your opponents. THAT is why such petty and childish name-calling is looked down up

      Who do you think said such kinds of sentences and mud slinging is illogical? Yes – that is right – NON MUSLIM logicians.

      It is simply YOUR claim that I lack intelligence. And given the situation – it means NOTHING.

      As an argument stands on its own merit. You cannot argue on merit. . . other than quite clearly resorting to such illogical means.

      – – –

      “May you help me choose a better word for a person like you. Its not an insult but an adjective for you. Also, let me clarify that is not a debate, neither you are an opponent debater.”

      I have already pointed this out to be an UTTER lie.

      – – –

      “Aha!! You caught me? Debates and discussion are between two intelligent people, but this is not in our case. It is senseless comments from your side, for which I don’t want to spend my precious time.”

      See I did catch you!

      It is kind of obvious for everyone to see – all you can do is insult me! And I am the one exposing your poor arguments and copying and pasting.

      – – –

      “Now I don’t know how many times I have to repeat it. What does Allah mean when he says, that ‘Earth is flat like a carpet’?”

      Here is MORE lying on your part. . . .

      Where is any such verse:

      ‘Earth is flat like a carpet’

      Find it. See how you make things up!

      – – –

      “Its too hard to make brain washed, blind believers and followers of Muhammad to make them understand simple things. In the entire Quran there is not a single statement which says Earth is spherical, or even circle. All its says is spread out, like a carpet. Now we all know carpet is not spherical in shape. Please anyone explain this man how does a carpet look. ”

      See once more – you simply spend time on hate mongering . . . and you will continue to do this. . . All I have to do is sit back. As you expose yourself for what you are.

      “In the entire Quran there is not a single statement which says Earth is spherical, or even circle.”

      Why should there be? That is meaningless – Quran is NOT there to give shape of the earth out.

      – – –

      ” All its says is spread out, like a carpet. Now we all know carpet is not spherical in shape. Please anyone explain this man how does a carpet look.”

      1. Where does it say “carpet”

      2. You can “spread” something over ANY SHAPE – including 2d and 3d surfaces.

      – – –

      Your claim started off with . . . Quran advocating “flat earth”

      Well I exposed that easily.

      Now what you do is – keep repeating the bullshit and increasing the hate mongering.

      Sometimes it personally at me – other times

      – – –

      I told you – I would EXPOSE you . . . and look how good I am.

      • Wildmystic,

        I am not spreading irrational hate of Muslims. I am just reporting what is in fact rational, logical, and true. Let me explain you this with an example, Muslims calls Islam to be religion of peace, still every day I get some news which says Sunni killing Shia, Islamic terrorist killing Non-Muslims etc. read this recent news:- Sunnis killing Shi’ite Muslims in Iran: Religion of Peace? Is this religion of Peace? Now, if I am exposing these lies, I am spreading hate? Certainly no. Its you spreading hate, and irrationality by defending a demonic religion.

        You keep repeating lies here, in my comment sections, see this: I have already pointed this out to be an UTTER lie. Again I am so sorry to say that you haven’t. In reality I have exposed in some last comments and have pointed your lie. Sir, You are not going to win here, by repeating your lies here.
        ________________________________________________________

        You said,

        “Now I don’t know how many times I have to repeat it. What does Allah mean when he says, that ‘Earth is flat like a carpet’?”

        Here is MORE lying on your part. . . .

        Where is any such verse:

        ‘Earth is flat like a carpet’

        Find it. See how you make things up!”

        Let me start by quoting 20:53 by Yusuf Ali:- Yusuf Ali
        “He Who has, made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; has enabled you to go about therein by roads (and channels); and has sent down water from the sky.” With it have We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others.

        Here we see that Allah says that earth is like carpet. So I am not making anything up, Wildmystic is a professional liar, and he is lying here. Now as I have exposed him, I don’t need to say anything more.

        Thanks

        • “I am not spreading irrational hate of Muslims.”

          Could have fooled me! Look at you and your attitude . . . you say this – but your words betray you. Look how quickly you went from “dear, respected” to petty insults?

          But it is your “nasty” little lines about Muslims [as whole] – they nothing but hate.

          See how I never do that!

          – – –

          “I am just reporting what is in fact rational, logical, and true. ”

          No it isn’t. And i have exposed that thoroughly. The basis of your whole SITE is illogical. And its purpose is “hate”.

          – – –

          “Muslims calls Islam to be religion of peace, still every day I get some news which says Sunni killing Shia, Islamic terrorist killing Non-Muslims etc. read this recent news:- Sunnis killing Shi’ite Muslims in Iran: Religion of Peace? Is this religion of Peace? Now, if I am exposing these lies, I am spreading hate? Certainly no. Its you spreading hate, and irrationality by defending a demonic religion.”

          Sure . . . that is why EVERYONE is demonic and all belief/non-belief systems are demonic.

          Name me one that is free or above such killings?

          I think you will find – on percentage . . . .Muslims ARE more peaceful.

          Hence why I said – the basis of your site is “illogical”! Your motivation is nothing but “hate”.

          – – –

          “You keep repeating lies here, in my comment sections, see this: I have already pointed this out to be an UTTER lie. Again I am so sorry to say that you haven’t.”

          See this is is lying . . . you are lying right now.

          Just you saying this:

          “Again I am so sorry to say that you haven’t.”

          Has no merit . . . you need EVIDENCE? Sunshine – evidence?

          Now – say who is the one wallowing in “stupidity”?

          – – –

          “In reality I have exposed in some last comments and have pointed your lie. Sir, You are not going to win here, by repeating your lies here.”

          You do it again . . . what “lie” – you simply claim this . .. yet not come up with single such lie . . .

          WHICH – makes you the “liar”.

          If I am lying so much – as you claim . .. then name one such lie?

          – – –

          “Here we see that Allah says that earth is like carpet. So I am not making anything up, Wildmystic is a professional liar, and he is lying here. Now as I have exposed him, I don’t need to say anything more.”

          Notice once again . . . how keen you are to demonise me!

          Where?

          This is the verse 20:53 :

          الَّذِي جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الْأَرْضَ مَهْدًا وَسَلَكَ لَكُمْ فِيهَا سُبُلًا وَأَنزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَخْرَجْنَا بِهِ أَزْوَاجًا مِّن نَّبَاتٍ شَتَّىٰ
          الذي جعل لكم الأرض مهدا وسلك لكم فيها سبلا وأنزل من السماء ماء فأخرجنا به أزواجا من نبات شتى

          What from here means:

          ” earth is like carpet”

          Where?

          Although YA is incorrect – but let us see what he says:

          “He Who has, made for you the earth like a carpet spread out”

          See the difference between what you claim and what Yusuf Ali says.

          Then look at what the Arabic actually says. You will find that there is no word in the Arabic that says or means “carpet”

          See why I said you are nothing more than a “copy and paste” merchant.

          – – –

          See that!

          Now – once again thank you for the wonderfully opportunity for exposing you!

        • It is noticeable to everyone – you spent most of your comments demonising me and Muslims.

          And when it comes to the issues . . . . you lay flat on your back by ignorance and lies.

          – – –

          Sonny – all you have done is read xtian propaganda sites – and nothing more. In every round I keep exposing that!

  7. Dear Wildmystic,

    You asked me ‘wat silly mistakes‘

    Maybe my choice of word is wrong, but my intention and concept is right. As I said in article even Grade II students would never claim or write in their essays those things, which Allah has revealed regarding science, like flat earth, sun stting place, rotaion of sun etc.

    Hope I made you clear about what silly mistakes I was talking about.

    Regards

    • “Maybe my choice of word is wrong, but my intention and concept is right.”

      How? So there are no silly mistakes – in a circular way you accept that – yet your “hate” still brings you around.

      You really are brainwashed aren’t you. Hindu boys are actively brainwashed – it is a pity.

      – – –

      “As I said in article even Grade II students would never claim or write in their essays those things”

      This is meaningless tittle tattle – what things? What are you talking about? You repeat this “murky water” thing over and over and over . . .

      It is the same argument. You copy from others and repeat it.

      Simple. You cannot deal with “answers”. . . hence why you are FORCED to just repeat the same thing – again again.

      Look – that is abundantly clear.

      – – –

      “which Allah has revealed regarding science, like flat earth, sun stting place, rotaion of sun etc.”

      Ha ha ha ha . . . what did I tell you . . . you have no shame when it comes to lying.

      Take “flat earth” . . . find me 1 verse which advocates “flat earth”. Let us see it.

      You will find there is NOT a single verse. See – when that happens – you will STILL carry one with your lying.

      I am giving you an open chance to prove me wrong . . .

      – – –

      “Hope I made you clear about what silly mistakes I was talking about.”

      Yes – by retracting. Read your own words:

      “Maybe my choice of word is wrong, but my intention and concept is right.”

      So what silly mistake?

      • Wildmystic,

        You write a lot but say nothing. You said, “How? So there are no silly mistakes – in a circular way you accept that – yet your “hate” still brings you around.

        You really are brainwashed aren’t you. Hindu boys are actively brainwashed – it is a pity.”

        What’s wrong with you Sir, when I said that I accept there are no errors and mistakes in Quran. How you reached to that conclusion? May be Gabriel must have helped you to know that, but still its far away from truth. I am not going round the bush anymore. I said, may be my choice of word ‘SILLY’ be wrong, but still Quran has errors. It has blunders. Also from where you got this idea that I am HINDU? Prove it to me that Hindus are brain washed. I want evidence for this claims of you, because I see only Muslims going to Madarasa and giving their brains to Mullahs to be washed.

        Next you said:

        This is meaningless tittle tattle – what things? What are you talking about? You repeat this “murky water” thing over and over and over . . .

        It is the same argument. You copy from others and repeat it.

        What you found meaningless? Why you are so frustrated man? I am clear that even a 2nd grade student won;t say that sun sets in middle of the river, but Allah has, so who is more intelligent? Obviously the student. Isn’t it? You said I copied it, please provide me the source from where I copied it. Do it or else this time you are ripped apart. I want evidence from you.

        Simple. You cannot deal with “answers”. . . hence why you are FORCED to just repeat the same thing – again again.

        Look – that is abundantly clear.

        Its not that simple, what answers you are looking for, please specify that, I’ll try not to disappoint you this time. Sometimes, I don’t understand you, what you want. What is repeated again and again Sir? In fact I should claim that Muslims don’t have any proper answers for such absurdities in Quran.

        Ha ha ha ha . . . what did I tell you . . . you have no shame when it comes to lying.

        Take “flat earth” . . . find me 1 verse which advocates “flat earth”. Let us see it.

        You will find there is NOT a single verse. See – when that happens – you will STILL carry one with your lying.

        I am giving you an open chance to prove me wrong . . .

        Ha Ha Ha, there are many bro, I didn’t knew that you are so lame. Ok, let me spoon feed you like a kid. Here we go:-

        And the earth We have spread out (like a carpet); set thereon mountains firm and immovable; and produced therein all kinds of things in due balance.
        Qur’an 15:19

        He Who has, made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; has enabled you to go about therein by roads (and channels); and has sent down water from the sky.” With it have We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others.
        Qur’an 20:53

        And the earth- We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)-
        Qur’an 50:7

        And We have spread out the (spacious) earth: How excellently We do spread out!
        Qur’an 51:48

        After this, He spread out the earth, Qur’an 79:30

        Do you want more, there are much more evidence than this. You know sometimes I get bored replying you, even this is a reason why I don’t reply you. Your comments are same which most Muslims comment on other critical sites, they are boring.

          • Wildmystic,

            You said, “Also from where you got this idea that I am HINDU?”

            Where do you think? Your name. You are a Hindu. “

            By the very same logic even Ali Sina, Amaar Khan and all the other Ex-Muslims would be a Muslim. I don’t like to say but seriously you are dumb, you don’t even think before writing anything. You gave me a link, which as per you proves that Hindus are brain washed. Brother, I can give you several such links, I do post such news everyday on my blog. Please read them to know who is more brain washed.

            You said, “It is expected people like you to say stuff like this. Hardly a surprise is it.”

            He, you expected this? Follower of the most intolerant and irrational religion is saying this to me. I mean how could you say that? We have a saying in Hindi, “Thief after stealing, scolding a COP” the same goes with your comment, you don’t have any right to say any people brain washed if you are a Muslim, because they are the only brainwashed people found on face of earth.

            Thanks

          • “By the very same logic even Ali Sina, Amaar Khan and all the other Ex-Muslims would be a Muslim. I don’t like to say but seriously you are dumb, you don’t even think before writing anything. You gave me a link, which as per you proves that Hindus are brain washed. Brother, I can give you several such links, I do post such news everyday on my blog. Please read them to know who is more brain washed.”

            See your comment above – see how you are quick towards personal abuse?

            “By the very same logic even Ali Sina, Amaar Khan and all the other Ex-Muslims would be a Muslim.”

            Why yes. As this reveals their Muslim background.

            You would have had more success if you had written name of someone like Tariq Ali – ex-Iraqi Christian minister – to prove your point.

            See – how it is noticeable that you’ve not denied that you are a Hindu. If you weren’t you would have denied this is in the 1st comment.

            And go and do some homework . . . next time come here with copy and pasted stuff. I’ll shove it up you so hard – you will away squealing. Again.

          • Wild Mystic,

            You posted a link of sun setting in sea. wrote previously that the water body in Quran 18:86 is not Sea or Ocean but Spring, Lake or Pond, where we can’t see Sun setting, as we see in Sea. So your image is irrelevant in this case.

            You said,

            “Why . . .from answering-islam of course. This sun set and flat earth – is a propagandist Christian material. It is commonly available. Look at number of articles you re-blog? “

            Is it a copy right of Christians, if they have written why can’t I? Many people write on a same topic, differently. The same goes with sun setting in Murky water. I am now sure you have no answers for this, or you must have replied by yet, instead of your meaningless, irrational comment.

            Thanks

        • “Ha Ha Ha, there are many bro, I didn’t knew that you are so lame. Ok, let me spoon feed you like a kid. Here we go:-”

          See – didn’t I say – you are a copy and paste merchant? You are so unintelligent – that you were unable to figure out – that I have encountered such answers as yours previously.

          Did you really think it is that easy?

          – – –

          Now let me state it clearly – THERE IS NO VERSE THAT ADVOCATES FLAT EARTH. EVEN HINTS AT IT.

          And the earth We have spread out (like a carpet); set thereon mountains firm and immovable; and produced therein all kinds of things in due balance.
          Qur’an 15:19

          Where does it say the earth is flat? You should have thought about what I said to you. Read what the verse says.

          – – –

          He Who has, made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; has enabled you to go about therein by roads (and channels); and has sent down water from the sky.” With it have We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others.
          Qur’an 20:53

          Again – where does it say – flat earth?

          – – –

          Rest:

          And the earth- We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)-
          Qur’an 50:7

          And We have spread out the (spacious) earth: How excellently We do spread out!
          Qur’an 51:48

          After this, He spread out the earth, Qur’an 79:30

          Which of them is saying a “Flat Earth”

          – – –

          You pasted 5 verses – all say earth is “spread out”. Now – how is that flat?

          You can spread something over a surface of any shape.

          So where is this flat earth?

          – – –

          “Do you want more, there are much more evidence than this. You know sometimes I get bored replying you, even this is a reason why I don’t reply you. Your comments are same which most Muslims comment on other critical sites, they are boring.”

          You don’t answer – because you cannot – because like right now – I expose your lies and ignorance.

          And you have answered – it is just that you answer 1 time going in . . . then the argument runs out of you . . .

          And I am right about 100%. You are Hindu – who has been taught hate.

          – – –

          • Oh dumb Wildmystic,

            Let us end our discussion here itself, because having discussion with you is making me sick. You said, “Now let me state it clearly – THERE IS NO VERSE THAT ADVOCATES FLAT EARTH. EVEN HINTS AT IT.”

            Now I challenge you, that find me a single verse in Quran which says, earth is spherical. If you fail then, please accept that it says Earth is flat. Before that, read the following links:

            http://mostintolerantreligion.com/2012/07/30/a-flat-earth-the-islamic-perspective-2/
            https://mostintolerantreligion.wordpress.com/2012/04/06/is-earth-egg-shaped-as-per-quran/

            Thanks

          • See how I said – I can best you very easily. I have done it. Evidence is there to see.

            Like previous times. I have reduced you to such a state – that you cannot answer.

            – – –

            See how quickly your false pretensions dropped away . . . .

            Look at this:

            “Oh dumb Wildmystic,”

            “Let us end our discussion here itself, because having discussion with you is making me sick. ”

            So quick to abuse!

            – – –

            “Now I challenge you, that find me a single verse in Quran which says, earth is spherical. If you fail then, please accept that it says Earth is flat.”

            See how pitiful lying has got you nowhere. See, how copying and pasting got you nowhere. See how quickly you leave logic to descend into illogicality?

            Quran does NOT give any shape of the Earth. As I stated:

            “THERE IS NO VERSE THAT ADVOCATES FLAT EARTH. EVEN HINTS AT IT.”

            And that is so obviously true. You have NOT managed it.

            As for spherical earth?

            Why should I find such a verse? Why should the Quran give out shape of the Earth? And why does absence of saying “spherical” earth equal to flat earth?

            Where are other shapes? Square, rectangle, oblong, cylinder. . .

            – – –

            When you failed to find to a single verse that advocated “Flat Earth” – then you even copied your response from others!

            – – –

            Now answer me! Have I or Haven’t I . . . easily bested you and exposed you – as a copy and paste merchant?

            Decide quickly my dear Hindu boy.

          • “Oh dumb Wildmystic,”

            See how suddenly the false façade of “dear, respected” went. This indicates clearly that I have got to him. It is interesting to note, how many poor debaters resort to this fallacy. Yet, this shows their weakness in ways

            – – –

            “Let us end our discussion here itself, because having discussion with you is making me sick. ”

            When it suited him, the poor fellow denied these comments were discussion – here he blows that nonsense out of the window. Proving that I was right over one more thing.

            Real stupidity is in this link:

            http://mostintolerantreligion.com/2012/04/06/is-earth-egg-shaped-as-per-quran/

            Once again – it easy to notice that too is copy and paste.

            When he pastes in dictionary – it says the word Daaha to mean:

            to spread out, to level, to flatten, unroll.

            Yet, he changes this to:

            “So, I can say confidently, that most of the Arabic dictionaries translates the word’Dahaha’ referring to a flat surface.”

            Does it? Where?

            Therein lies the reason . . . all I had to say was boo . . . and all wind out out of him.

            – – –

            As clearly demonstrated – how is unable to answer.

        • See – here is why YOU are a brainwashed hate monger and nothing more. See when you read anti-Islamic stuff – you do not stop to verify it.

          No – you advocate it. This video for instance. I will point out its mistakes. For you. . .

          – – –

          Go to 2:35 where the video author says “Does the Quran really mean ‘spread out'”?

          [See – how eve the video author knows spread out does NOT equal “flat”]

          Here is where the little “untruth” creeps in.

          Notice how the vidoe author says that the older Tafsirs say that this is flat. . .

          But they don’t!

          He quotes:

          Ibn Abbas, Ibn Kathir and Jalalyn.

          For example – if you look in all these books none of them says flat.

          Proof?

          {وَإِلَى الأرْضِ كَيْفَ سُطِحَتْ} ؟ أَيْ: كَيْفَ بُسِطَتْ وَمُدَّتْ وَمُهِّدَتْ

          Kathir on Verse 88:20

          Again he doesn’t say – “flat” – he says “spread out”

          Look for yourself.

          Do you know what is more?

          Go to 2:27 of the video.

          The video author himself has translated it as “spread out”

          So answer this . . . where did this “flat” suddenly come from?

          – – –

          See – not only you lie – but so do your sources. Sonny, this was put together by amateur propagandist.

          Oh – talk about Academia and Scholarship . . . and you bring easy lies.

        • “You posted a link of sun setting in sea. wrote previously that the water body in Quran 18:86 is not Sea or Ocean but Spring, Lake or Pond, where we can’t see Sun setting, as we see in Sea. So your image is irrelevant in this case.”

          Again this is a bizarre and ridiculous answer. The point being made to you is very successful one – how the article uses this imagery.

          It doesn’t matter which body of water is – isn’t this equally unscientific?

          Suddenly you have changed the goal post. . . saying:

          “where we can’t see Sun setting, as we see in Sea”

          Another, separate irrationality!

          – – –

          This is why I said – you are nothing more than a copy and paste merchant. All you can do is read propaganda sites and paste up nonsense. Muslims has long ago exposed this nonsense. If you were after “truth” and not hatred then you would put some REAL effort into it. Rather than copy paste.

          And as I said, you cannot answer back. The above post is a testimony to that.

          • Wildmystic,

            Muslims are gifted with circular reasoning fallacy by birth, isn’t it? Let me be clear and straight to you. The picture link, which you posted in your comments, shows sun setting in horizon. Right?

            If so, this picture is irrelevant in case of verse 18:86 of Quran. (Replying to you makes me feel as if I am taking to a 3 year old child, who knows nothing)

            Now you will ask why it is irrelevant? Because, in very first place the verse is talking in very real sense, I mean in very literal sense. And,secondly the water body as per the verse is a small stream, where we can see sun setting in horizon.

            You keep repeating frequently that I don’t answer you to make an impression on readers that I have no answer, but its not true. But reality is that Wildmystic has no question, and whatever he asks is complete nonsense.

            Thanks

          • “Muslims are gifted with circular reasoning fallacy by birth, isn’t it? ”

            More hate mongering! See how meaningless such sentences are . . . as they show you up!

            If so, this picture is irrelevant in case of verse 18:86 of Quran. ”

            Ha ha ha!

            “Sun setting over the pool”

            Read what that says!

            THAT is simply one example. I can find many many such descriptions . . .

            Is it irrelevant? Absolutely not. It answers the query . . .beautifully.

            So was the author of this line stupid? unscientific? No.

            Why not? – becuase s/he is simply describing visual phenomena.

            That with naked eye that is how sun appears to set.

            Read:

            “Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it [as if] setting in a spring of dark mud, and he found near it a people. Allah said, “O Dhul-Qarnayn, either you punish [them] or else adopt among them [a way of] goodness.””

            And what is this saying? DQ was travelling towards sun set in the horizon – and he found near it people. And that is all.

            – – –

            “Now you will ask why it is irrelevant? Because, in very first place the verse is talking in very real sense, I mean in very literal sense. ”

            Where? And how? How do you know? The verse is talking about an “unknown location” – further out in the horizon. That is obvious from the above.

            – – –

            “And,secondly the water body as per the verse is a small stream, where we can see sun setting in horizon.”

            Doh! There is no mention of quantity of water there. In Classical Arabic the word Ain simply means “water source” and that is the original meaning of the word.

            Look it up – lanes lexicon.

            – – –

            “You keep repeating frequently that I don’t answer you to make an impression on readers that I have no answer, but its not true. But reality is that Wildmystic has no question, and whatever he asks is complete nonsense. ”

            If all that I have asked is complete nonsense – then why have you not pointed any out?

            See why – no one will buy you saying this . . . !

            And why when I say – you do not have any answers . . . they will.

            As it is abundantly clear – you spend MORE time on writing meaningless hate senescence – either at me . . . or at all Muslims.

            Well – you keep on doing it.

            – – –

            Look how short and of poor quality your answers are. I MADE you admit – there is no verse of Quran that says . . . .

            “flat earth”

            In return – you had this “fallacy” oh – find where it says . . . .

            “spherical earth”!

    • YO MYSTIC,

      CHASITY IN THE TEACHINGS OF PROPHET MOHAMMED

      ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF ALLAH.

      ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED THE RAPE OF FEMALE CAPTIVES:

      RAPE JIHAD:

      Sahih Muslim Book 08. N 3371Marriage

      Chapter: Al-Azl (incomplete sexual intercourse): Coitus Interruptus.

      Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) mentioning al-‘azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women;

      and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.
      So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him?

      So we asked Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.

      REMEMBER:

      ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF GOD

      ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED RAPE

      Al-‘Azl

      Al-‘Azl, (العزل) also known as coitus interruptus, is the practice of having sexual intercourse with a woman but withdrawing the penis before ejaculation. Apparently al-‘Azl with female captives and slaves was a pretty important topic for Muhammad and his companions as evidenced by the abundance of Hadith material on the subject.
      Practiced during Muhammad’s lifetime
      Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle .
      Sahih Bukhari 7:62:135
      Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interrupt us while the Quran was being revealed. Jabir added: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed.
      Sahih Bukhari 7:62:136
      When RAPING your captive, it’s better if you do not pull out at the end
      THIS IS ISLAM

      Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah’s Apostle he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus(RAPE WITHOUT PREGNANCY)?” The Prophet said, “Do you really do that? It is better for you not to PULL OUT. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.”

      Sahih Bukhari 3:34:432

      Abu Said said, “We went with Allah’s Apostle, in the Ghazwa of Barli Al-Mustaliq and we captured some of the ‘Arabs as captives, and the long separation from our wives was pressing us hard and we wanted to practice coitus interruptus. We asked Allah’s Apostle (whether it was permissible). He said, “It is better for you not to do so. No soul, (that which Allah has) destined to exist, up to the Day of Resurrection, but will definitely come, into existence.”
      Sahih Bukhari 3:46:718

      We went out with Allah’s Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. ………
      We asked (him) about it and he said, “It is better for you not to PULL OUT, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist.”
      Sahih Bukhari 5:59:459

      Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured females and wanted sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they asked the Prophet about coitus interruptus. He said, “It is better that you leave it in, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection.” Qaza’a said, “I heard Abu Sa’id saying that the Prophet said, ‘No soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it.”
      Sahih Bukhari 9:93:506

      RAPE JIHAD
      Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: We got female captives in the war booty and we used to do coitus interruptus with them. So we asked Allah’s Apostle about it and he said, “Do you really do that?” repeating the question thrice, “There is no soul that is destined to exist but will come into existence, till the Day of Resurrection.”
      Sahih Bukhari 7:62:137

      THE REASON WHY THERE ARE FEW VIRGINS LEFT!

      Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That while he was sitting with the Prophet a man from the Ansar came and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get slave girls from the war captives and we love property; what do you think about coitus interruptus?” Allah’s Apostle said, “Do you do that? It is better for you not to pull out, for there is no soul which Allah has ordained to come into existence but will be created.”
      Sahih Bukhari 8:77:600
      Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) mentioning al-‘azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.

      Yahya related to me from Malik from Rabia ibn Abi Abd ar-Rahman from Muhammad ibn Yahya ibn Habban that Ibn Muhayriz said, “I went into the mosque and saw Abu Said al-Khudri and so I sat by him and asked him about coitus interruptus. Abu Said al-Khudri said, ‘We went out with the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, on the expedition to the Banu al-Mustaliq. We took some Arabs prisoner, and we desired the women as celibacy was hard for us. We wanted the ransom, so we wanted to practise coitus interruptus. We said, ‘Shall we practise coitus interruptus while the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is among us before we ask him?’ We asked him about that and he said, ‘You don’t have to not do it. There is no self which is to come into existence up to the Day of Rising but that it will come into existence.’ ”
      Al-Muwatta 29 32.95b
      It’s okay to practice ‘azl when having sex with your slave-girl
      Narrated AbuSa’id al-Khudri: A man said: Apostle of Allah, I have a slave-girl and I withdraw the penis from her (while having intercourse), and I dislike that she becomes pregnant. I intend (by intercourse) what the men intend by it. The Jews say that withdrawing the penis (azl) is burying the living girls on a small scale. He (the Prophet) said: The Jews told a lie. If Allah intends to create it, you cannot turn it away.
      Abu Dawud 11:2166
      Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported that a man came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: I have a slave-girl who is our servant and she carries water for us and I have intercourse with her, but I do not want her to conceive. He said: Practise ‘azl, if you so like, but what is decreed for her will come to her. The person stayed back (for some time) and then came and said: The girl has become pregnant, whereupon he said: I told you what was decreed for her would come to her.
      Sahih Muslim 8:3383
      Your slave-girl is your field, so water it or leave it thirsty if you want
      Yahya related to me from Malik from Damra ibn Said al-Mazini from al-Hajjaj ibn Amr ibn Ghaziya that he was sitting with Zayd ibn Thabit when Ibn Fahd came to him. He was from the Yemen. He said, “Abu Said! I have slave-girls. None of the wives in my keep are more pleasing to me than them, and not all of them please me so much that I want a child by them, shall I then practise coitus interruptus?” Zayd ibn Thabit said, “Give an opinion, Hajjaj!” “I said, ‘May Allah forgive you! We sit with you in order to learn from you!’ He said, ‘Give an opinion! ‘I said, ‘She is your field, if you wish, water it, and if you wish, leave it thirsty. I heard that from Zayd.’ Zayd said, ‘He has spoken the truth.’ ”
      Al-Muwatta 29 32.99b
      “You don’t need your slave-girl’s permission to practice ‘azl with her.”
      Yahya related to me from Malik from Humayd ibn Qays al-Makki that a man called Dhafif said that Ibn Abbas was asked about coitus interruptus. He called a slave-girl of his and said, “Tell them.” She was embarrassed. He said, “It is alright, and I do it myself.” Malik said, “A man does not practise coitus interruptus with a free woman unless she gives her permission. There is no harm in practising coitus interruptus with a slave-girl without her permission. Someone who has someone else’s slave-girl as a wife, does not practise coitus interruptus with her unless her people give him permission.”
      Al-Muwatta 29 32.100b
      Additional Hadith about ‘azl
      Sahih Muslim
      Sa’d b. Abu Waqqas (Allah be pleased with him) reported that a person came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: I do ‘azi with my wife. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Why do you do that? The person said: I fear harm to her child or her children. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (way peace be upon him) said: If that were harmful it would harm the Persians and the Greeks.
      Sahih Muslim 8:3394
      Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported: We took women captives, and we wanted to do ‘azl with them. We then asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) about it, and he said to us: Verily you do it, verily you do it, verily you do it, but the soul which has to be born until the Day of judgment must be born.
      Sahih Muslim 8:3373
      Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) (was asked if he had heard it himself), to which he said: Yes. (I heard) Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: There is no harm if you do not practise it, for it (the birth of the child) is something ordained (by Allah).
      Sahih Muslim 8:3374, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3375
      Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) was asked about ‘azl, whereupon he said: There is no harm if you do not do that, for it (the birth of the child) is something ordained. Muhammad (one of the narrators) said: (The words) La ‘alaykum (there is no harm) implies its Prohibition.
      Sahih Muslim 8:3376
      Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that mention was made of ‘azl in the presence of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) whereupon he said: Why do you practise it? They said: There is a man whose wife has to suckle the child, and if that person has a sexual intercourse with her (she may conceive) which he does not like, and there is another person who has a slave-girl and he has a sexual intercourse with her, but he does not like her to have conception so that she may not become Umm Walad, whereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: There is no harm if you do not do that, for that (the birth of the child) is something pre- ordained. Ibn ‘Aun said: I made a mention of this hadith to Hasan, and he said: By Allah, (it seems) as if there is upbraiding in it (for ‘azl).
      Sahih Muslim 8:3377, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3378 and Sahih Muslim 8:3379
      Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported: Mention was made about al-‘azl in the presence of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), whereupon he said: Why any one of you practises it? (He did not say: One of you should not do it), for there is no created soul, whose creator is not Allah.
      Sahih Muslim 8:3380
      Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about ‘azl, whereupon he said: The child does not come from all the liquid (sermen) and when Allah intends to create anything nothing can prevent it (from coming into existence).
      Sahih Muslim 8:3381, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3382
      Jabir b. ‘Abdullah (Allah be pleased with them) reported that a person asked Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) saying: I have a slave-girl and I practise ‘azl with her, whereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: This cannot prevent that which Allah has decreed. The person then came (after some time) and said: Messenger of Allah, the slave-girl about whom I talked to you has conceived, whereupon Allah’s Messeuger (may peace be upon him) said: I am the servant of Allah and His Messenger.
      Sahih Muslim 8:3384
      Al-Muwatta
      Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu’n-Nadr, the mawla of Umar ibn Ubaydullah from Amir ibn Sad ibn Abi Waqqas from his father that he used to practise coitus interruptus.
      Al-Muwatta 29 32.96b
      Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu’n-Nadr, the mawla of Umar ibn Ubaydullah from Ibn Aflah, the mawla of Abu Ayyub al-Ansari from an umm walad of Abu Ayyubal-Ansari that he practised coitus interruptus.
      Al-Muwatta 29 32.97b
      Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar did not practise coitus interruptus and thought that it was disapproved.
      Al-Muwatta 29 32.98b
      Yahya said that Malik related from Ibn Shihab from Salim ibn Abdullah ibn Umar from his father that Umar ibn al-Khattab said, “What’s the matter with men who have intercourse with their slave-girls and then dismiss them? No slave-girl comes to me whose master confesses that he has had intercourse with her but that I connect her child to him, whether or not he has practised coitus interruptus or stopped having intercourse with her.”
      Al-Muwatta 36 23.24b
      Malik related to me from Nafi that Safiyya bint Abi Ubayd informed him that Umar ibn al-Khattab said, “What is the matter with men who have intercourse with their slave-girls and then leave them to go? No slave-girl comes to me whose master confesses that he has had intercourse with her but that I connect her child to him, whether or not he has practised coitus interruptus or left off from intercourse with her.” Yahya said that he heard Malik say, “What is done in our community about an umm walad who commits a crime is that her master is liable for what she has done up to her value. He does not have to surrender her, and he cannot be made to bear more than her value for her crime.”
      Al-Muwatta 36 23.25b

      STONED TO DEATH
      On October 30, 2008, the United Nations condemned the stoning to death of Aisha Duhulowa, a 13-year-old girl who had been gang-raped and then sentenced to death by a Sharia court for fornication (Zina). She was screaming and begging for mercy, but when some family members attempted to intervene, shots were fired by the Islamic militia and a baby was killed.
      Local Sharia courts in Bangladesh regularly punish raped minor girls and women by flogging and beating them with shoes.[1] Similar cases of punishing raped women are Mina v. the State, Bibi v. the State and Bahadur v. the State.[2] Sharia courts in Pakistan have punished thousands of raped women by long term imprisonment.[3]
      You might think that such horrific barbarity cannot be the real Sharia law; that it is a misapplication of the law by ignorant clergy. Sadly, neither is true.
      There is a traceable dynamic in Sharia Law that is bound to lead to this barbarity. And unless we abandon these laws we will never be able to emerge from this barbarity. It was a blunder that Muslim jurists included rape in the Hudood section of Sharia Law that deals with murder, bodily harm, apostasy, drinking, defamation, theft, adultery and highway robbery. But anyone who tried to change these laws ended up banging their heads against the wall. Mawdudi, the founding father of modern Political Islam, claims that even if all the world’s Muslims together wanted to make the slightest change in these laws, they would not be allowed to do so.[4]
      But change is necessary.
      Another key element of these laws is that only eye-witnesses are acceptable and no circumstantial evidence can be accepted.[5] Rape is included in the Dyat (monetary compensation for bodily harm) section of Sharia Law because it is considered as “Bodily Harm” or “Robbing Property” (chastity). This classification led jurists to create these laws:
      * A rapist is obliged to pay the victim the amount typically received as marriage payment to similar brides.[6]
      * “If the rapist cannot be punished for any reason he will pay the victim the amount equal to bride-money.”[7]
      As no other punishment is mentioned, the punishment of rape can be only financial compensation. But Jurists missed the point that rape is a crime of its own kind. It has a devastating psychological and social impact on raped women. They are shamed to death, socially outcast, unsuitable for marriage, bring shame on the family and in some countries become the victims of honor killing. Many raped women commit suicide in Muslim countries.
      The Quranic word “Zina” means sexual relation between a man and woman not married to each other. It is called adultery for married persons and fornication for unmarried ones. The Quran severely prohibits Zina. Muslim jurists also included rape in the category of Zina because in rape cases such sexual relations “between a man and woman not married to each other,” even though forced on the victim, have taken place. As rape is not mentioned in the Quran, the death sentence for rapists originated from the Prophet’s example: “Narrated Wa’il ibn Hujr: When a woman went out in the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him) for prayer, a man attacked her and overpowered (raped) her. …he said: Stone him to death”.[8]
      The laws are so clear about defining rape and the requirement for proof of rape that a judge has no option but punish the rape victims.
      When rape is caught or reported, “sex between a man and woman not married to each other” can be proven by testimony, physical evidences of bodily scars/bruises, torn clothing or pregnancy of the victim. Then the Sharia laws are enforced.
      Sharia Law: The rapist will be punished to death if force on the victim is proven.[9]
      Clear enough. But exactly how can “force on the victim” be proven? The answer must surely rank as one of the most insane and sexist laws in human history.
      (A) “Proof of Zina (adultery) or Zina Bil-Jabr (rape) liable to Hadd shall be one of the following:
      (a) The accused makes confession or
      (b) There are at least four Muslim adult male witnesses”[10]
      (B) “Proof of adultery or rape liable to Hadd shall be one of the following:
      (a) The accused makes confession, or
      (b) There are at least four Muslim adult male witnesses.”[11]
      (C) “Punishment will take place when Zina or rape have been proved by witness.”[12]
      (D) Sharia Law rejects the witness of women in Hudood cases.[13]
      (E) “The evidence of women is originally inadmissible on account of their weakness of understanding, want of memory and incapacity of governing.”[14]
      Because such “proofs” are almost impossible to obtain and because circumstantial evidence is not accepted, a rape cannot be proved as rape in a Sharia court. Instead, “sex outside marriage” is proved for the woman by her complaint or physical scars or torn cloths or pregnancy etc. Then the law of “Punishment for Sex Outside Marriage” i.e. stoning to death for married adulterers and flogging and exile for unmarried adulterers are applied to the rape-victims.[15] On the other hand, a rapist has simply to deny the crime and go scott free. As the New York Times reports: “Ms. Lawal, a divorced woman, identified a man as the father of her child. The man denied the charge, swore on the Koran, and was deemed innocent by the trial court. No one suggested DNA tests.”[16]
      But DNA tests have no place in Hudood Laws either. The BBC reported that Zafran Bibi of Pakistan “went to the police to register a case of rape, but she herself was instead sentenced to death for having an adulterous affair.”[17] About conducting a DNA test to identify the rapist, the Dawn reports: “Justice Ali Nawaz Chauhan of the Lahore High Court has observed that the DNA test is not acceptable as evidence to establish the offence of Zina under the Hudood laws which require a direct testimony in such cases..”[18]
      This is how Sharia Law punishes raped women. The sources of these laws span the period from the 7th century to recent times. Some Muslim countries have withdrawn from the application of these laws, but these laws are still alive and active in many Muslim societies. Many Muslims talk about it, but there has never been a concerted effort to end this barbarity. It is true that many, including the UN’s Children Fund, have expressed alarm over the plight of Aisha Duhulowa, but history tells us that merely condemning these acts or calling on the humanity of the perpetrators has never stopped the violent soldiers of God. The solution can only been found by raising the awareness and opposition of the entire world, irrespective of religion.
      Muslims must reject this barbarity or risk Islam being seen as the criminal. The screams of little Aisha Duhulowa will echo around the world until this is done.

      How a Woman Must Prove Rape

      Question:

      Why are rape victims often punished by Islamic courts as adulterers?

      Summary Answer:

      Under Islamic law, rape can only be proven if the rapist confesses or if there are four male witnesses. Women who allege rape, without the benefit of the act having been witnessed by four men who subsequently develop a conscience, are actually confessing to having sex. If they or the accused happens to be married, then it is considered to be adultery.

      The Qur’an:
      Qur’an (2:282) – Establishes that a woman’s testimony is worth only half that of a man’s in court (there is no “he said/she said” gridlock in Islam).

      Qur’an (24:4) – “And those who accuse free women then do not bring four witnesses (to adultery), flog them…” Strictly speaking, this verse addresses adultery (revealed at the very time that Muhammad’s favorite wife was being accused of adultery on the basis of only three witnesses, coincidentally enough) however it is a part of the theological underpinning of the Sharia rule.

      Qur’an (24:13) – “Why did they not bring four witnesses of it? But as they have not brought witnesses they are liars before Allah.”

      Qur’an (2:223) – “Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will…” There is no such thing as rape in marriage, as a man is permitted unrestricted sexual access to his wives.

      From the Hadith:
      Bukhari (5:59:462) – The background for the Qur’anic requirement of four witnesses to adultery. Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, was accused of cheating [on her polygamous husband]. Three witnesses corroborated the event, but Muhammad apparently did not want to believe it, and so established the arbitrary rule that four witnesses are required.

      Additional Notes:

      Rape is virtually impossible to prove under strict Islamic law (Sharia). If the man claims that the act was consensual sex, there is very little that the woman can do to refute this. Islam places the burden of avoiding sexual encounters of any sort on the woman.

      A recent fatwa from a mainstream Islamic site echoes this rule and even chides a victim of incest for complaining when she has no “evidence”:
      However, it is not permissible to accuse the father of rape without evidence. Indeed, the Sharee’ah put some special conditions for proving Zina (fornication or adultery) that are not required in case of other crimes. The crime of Zina is not confirmed except if the fornicator admits it, or with the testimony of four trustworthy men, while the testimony of women is not accepted.

      Hence, the statement of this girl or the statement of her mother in itself does not Islamically prove anything against the father, especially that the latter denies it.

      Therefore, if this daughter has no evidence to prove that her accusations are true, she should not have claimed that she was raped by her father and she should not have taken him to the court. (IslamWeb.net, Image)

      Since it is incredibly unlikely that a child molester will violate his victim in front of “four trustworthy men”, Islamic law amounts to a free pass for sexual predators.

      Islamic law rejects forensic evidence (such as DNA) in favor of testimony. An interesting situation thus sometimes develops in cases where a victim alleges rape and the man denies that sex even took place. In the absence of four male witnesses, rape cannot be proven. The woman’s testimony then becomes a “confession” of adultery. She can be stoned, even though the male is unpunished, since he never “confessed” to a sexual act!

      Some clerics blame rape on the woman. Australian Sheik Feiz recently said a rape victim “has no one to blame but herself. She displayed her beauty to the entire world… to tease man and appeal to his carnal nature.”

      Also, there can be no such thing as rape in marriage, even if the husband has to hit the wife in order to bring about her submission. Another recent fatwa reminds a woman, she “does not have the right to refuse her husband, rather she must respond to his request every time he calls her.” (Islam Q&A, Fatwa No. 33597).

      Keep in mind that most Muslim countries do not operate under strict Islamic law, but rather under legal codes imported from the West. Therefore rape victims in these countries can and often do receive justice under more reasonable standards of proof.

      WATERMELONS & CUCUMBERS

      “If a man makes a hole in a watermelon, or a piece of dough, or a leather skin, or a statue, and has sex with it, then this is the same as what we have said about other types of masturbation [i.e., that it is halaal in the same circumstances given before, such as being on a journey].
      In fact, it is easier than masturbating with one’s hand”.

      PART 2:

      “If a woman does not have a husband, and her lust becomes strong, then some of our scholars say: It is permissible for the woman to take an akranbij, which is a piece of leather worked until it becomes shaped like a penis, and insert it in herself. She may also use a cucumber”.
      Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129

      A Muslim Shia website notes: “Maybe this is another reason why ‘Umar the Khalifa never went on jihad: somebody had to stay behind and organize the cucumber distribution.”

      WANKING JIHAD!
      Companions of Muhammad masturbated during Jihad
      “If a man is torn between continued desire or releasing it, and if this man does not have a wife or he has a slave-girl but he does not marry, then if a man is overwhelmed by desire, and he fears that he will suffer because of this (someone like a prisoner, or a traveller, or a pauper), then it is permissible for him to masturbate, and Ahmad (ibn Hanbal) is explicit on this.

      WANKING JIHAD!
      2. Furthermore, it is narrated that the Companions of the Prophet (s) used to masturbate while they were on military expeditions or travelling”.
      Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129

      Muttaqi (God-fearing) monkeys
      Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun: During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them.
      Sahih Bukhari 5:58:188

  8. “I believe all the critics of Islam have written on this issue and many have successfully proved to Muslims too that there are scientific errors in Qur’an. ”

    Rahul Raj’s lying is quite staggering. He or these critics have proved nothing to Muslims. . . . else Evidence? Where?

    – – –

    The thing is – when you answer such lies on one site . . . another site takes them up with such fantastical claims as above.

    – – –

    It is very easy to expose this:

    ” to make such a silly mistake in his book”

    What silly mistake are you talking about.

    Raj often does not have the guts to answer!

    Look what happens when he does!

    – – –

    He re-jargons such articles over and over and over.

    This issue has been laid to bed.

    • Respected Wildmystic,

      You asked me to give evidence of those Muslims who are convinced by the claims of critics. For your satisfaction, I‘ll certainly do that. Have you heard of Nabeel Qureshi, an ex-Muslam, he converted to Christianity after realizing the flaws of Islam. He is not the only example, if you go to any ex-Muslim website, there you will find loads of convinced Muslims, which may as per you are fake testomonies.

      Sir, when I do have guts to write about Islam, then for sure I have guts to defend what I write, but I don‘t do because of several reasons, let me tell you some:

      I am not paid to do all this, like most Islamic apologists, I do it for benifit of mankind nd let the readers discuss among themselves.

      I need to look after my other work and studies, sotime does not permit me.

      I mostly find brain washed Muslims who are not ready to see what fact is, so I ignore them.

      I hope you may understand my problem.

      • “You asked me to give evidence of those Muslims who are convinced by the claims of critics. For your satisfaction, I‘ll certainly do that.

        huh? Here is why it is VERY easy to shut you up by exposing your lies.

        “You asked me to give evidence of those Muslims who are convinced by the claims of critics.”

        See the word Muslim there.

        Now compare it with:

        “Have you heard of Nabeel Qureshi, an ex-Muslam”

        See the difference?

        – – –

        “which may as per you are fake testomonies.”

        This poor English did not make much sense.

        – – –

        “I am not paid to do all this, like most Islamic apologists, I do it for benifit of mankind nd let the readers discuss among themselves.”

        This is nonsense and you know it. So where is your evidence that there are paid Islamic er. . . “apologists”

        See the amount of lying you do?

        – – –

        “I need to look after my other work and studies, sotime does not permit me.”

        A poor excuse. When it suits you – you write realms. . . when you are beaten back. You go quiet. Look how many times I have exposed you . . . Do you have an answer? No.

        – – –

        “I mostly find brain washed Muslims who are not ready to see what fact is, so I ignore them.”

        Ha ha ha . . . a pitiful logical fallacy.

        – – –

        “I hope you may understand my problem.”

      • Quran 18.86 sun setting in murky water or muddy spring.

        This verse was mistranslated. The Arabic grammar says that a man was at a pond at sunset.

        “Hatta in Arabic حتى” means “until” (a timeframe, not a location). Since this verse started with a conditional timeframe (حتى اذا) then the rest of the sentence has to be a timeframe (not a location); otherwise the condition would not be met. So “setting of the sun مغرب الشمس” is a timeframe (not a location). However it was mistranslated to the “setting place of the sun” a location. The word “place” was added by the translators.

        The midsentence “وجدها تغرب في عين حمئة” on its own either means “while setting he was in a pond” or it means “he found it setting in a pond”, in Arabic it is the exact same wording. So it is the context that decides the meaning. For example, “وجدها تمطر” means “he found it raining”. Does it mean that the clouds were down there? Of coarse not, it is just an expression meaning “it rained on him”. Similarly “وجدها تغرب” does not mean that the sun was there. It means that it happened at sunset (timeframe). This correctly meets the previous conditional timeframe (حتى اذا).

        In Arabic grammar all places and locations are referred to in the male mode. For example, “هاذا المكان”… Since the setting place of the sun is a location then it should also be referred to in the male mode; however this was not the case. This verse ends with female mode: “he found at it people وجدعندها قوما” here “it ها” the Arabic is in the female mode; which means it refers to the muddy spring (عين حمئة female mode) and not to the “setting place of the sun” (male mode). Also “it ها” cannot refer to the sun (female mode) as skeptics claim because the sun is no longer there, rather what is left there is its setting location (male mode). Why is it not there? Because if it is still there then this would NOT be its setting place as they claim; maybe it moved to another location…

        So both the conditional timeframe at the beginning of the verse and the female mode at the end prove that the translation was wrong.

        Quran 18.86 simply says that Thu Al-Qarnain continued moving until sunset, while setting he (and his army) were in a muddy spring and there he found people…

        So the sun setting in a murky water or muddy spring is just a mistranslation. Other mistranslations in the same story of Thu Al-Qarnein are: The word “saddain” in Arabic means “two dams” however it was mistranslated to other languages as “two mountains”. Another word “sadafain” in Arabic means “two shells” however it was mistranslated also to the same word “two mountains”. The frequent mistranslation of the Quran presents wrong stories in other languages. Please always refer to Arabic Quran.

  9. ISLAM SANCTIONS RAPE IN THE QUR’AN

    Surah 8:69: “But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good.” (Yusuf Ali)

    Not only does Allah grant permission for women to be captured and raped, but he also allows Muslims to enjoy raping these poor women in the presence of their husbands. Can a religion as debased as this originate with the true God? You be the judge.

    Rape, sometimes called sexual assault, is an assault by a person involving sexual intercourse with or sexual penetration of another person without his or her consent. Rape is generally considered a serious sex crime as well as a civil assault. The International Criminal Tribunal established by the United Nations defined rape as:
    “A physical invasion of a sexual nature committed on a person under circumstances which are coercive.”
    In other words, a physical invasion of a sexual nature committed on a person under circumstances in which the victim is in no position to decline or refuse. Sex-slaves and war captives fit this category because the circumstances under which they are subjected to sexual intercourse make it either impossible or extremely difficult to object. Thus, sex with captives is considered as statuary rape because the victims are in no position to decline. It is vital to note that the absence of objection does not, of itself, constitute consent. Duress, in which the victim may be threatened or subjected to overwhelming force or violence, may result in absence of objection to intercourse. War rape is a typical situation where absence of objection may occur.
    The International Criminal Tribunal also defined rape as an institutionalized weapon of war. It also stated that rape is a crime of genocide under international law. The systematic rape of a civilian population by an occupying army is considered a war crime. (Fourth Annual Report of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda to the General Assembly)
    We will now consider the subject of Rape in Islam as sanctioned by Allah and his Prophet. In some specific instances, rape is not a sin and is both permitted and encouraged in Islam.Islam is the only religious political system in the world that includes rules for rape. Incredible as it may seem, Allah gave Muslim men the right to rape women who are taken as prisoners of war. Muhammad himself had forced sex (rape) with several of his women captives of war. Later these victims of rape were either sold or kept as sex-slaves by their Muslim masters. Islam considers slave-women as property; therefore, Muslim men are allowed to rape them at will. Islam also permits unlimited sex with women taken as prisoners of war. Raping captives and slaves was widespread amongst the Muslims during the “golden days” of Islam. The founder of Islam personally carried out this wicked act after he came into power. Muhammad was a rapist.
    Allah allows Muslims to have sex with female slaves who are: (1) Taken captive in war (2) Purchased by money (3) Received as a gift (4) The female offspring of their slaves.
    For depraved godless men without morality, compassion or justice, the promise of wealth, plunder, and sex with captives was an attractive incentive to join Muhammad’s new religion.It is an incentive engraved in the Qur’an – the very heart of Islam. Since Muslims will not accept any interpretation that is extraneous to their sources, we will oblige them by relying solely on their own approved Islamic sources. We will use these documented evidences to prove beyond any doubt that Islam approves, codifies and legalizes rape in its sacred text.
    One of Muhammad’s warriors declared:
    Tabari IX:25: “By Allah, I did not come to fight for nothing. I wanted a victory over Ta’if so that I might obtain a slave girl from among them and make her pregnant.” (See also Sirat Rasul Allah by Ibn Ishak, p.590.)
    Prophet Muhammad Promises Women to his Warriors
    Ibn Hisham recorded the words of Muhammad in Al Rod Al Anf, Volume 2, page 182:
    “You see God will soon make you inherit their land, their treasures and make you sleep with their women.” (Literally: make their women beds for you).
    While promising women to his warriors, Muhammad said it is Allah who will “make you sleep with their women.” Now ask yourself, would the true God act as a pimp by providing women for the sexual gratification of his worshippers? In this case, it is even worse, for these women are not prostituting themselves for Allah to act as a pimp but they are the innocent wives, daughters, mothers and sisters of the unfortunate men who were either captured or killed.
    Allah’s Blessings for Muhammad and Muslims – Illicit Sex
    Surah 23:1, 5-6: “Triumphant indeed are the believers… (who) restrain their carnal desires except with their spouses and slave-girls. The practice of carnal relations is lawful with them.” (Sarwar)
    Surah 23:5-6: Who abstain from sex, Except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or the captives whom their right hands possess, – for in their case they are free from blame. (Yusuf Ali)
    In the words of this Qur’anic verse, it means Muslim men do not have to restrain themselves from gratifying their carnal (sexual) desires with their war captives, slave-girls and, of course, with their wives. As stated earlier, slave-girls are either purchased from the slave market or obtained by capture through warfare. Captured women are enslaved and shared among the Muslim warriors. These slave-girls are the defenseless mothers, wives daughters, and sisters of men slain in battle by the Muslim warriors. This utterly shameful conduct is sanctioned by Allah and enshrined in the Qur’an and the Hadith. Allah tells his Prophet:
    Surah 33:50: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowriesand those whom thy right hand possesseth of thosewhom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war…”(Pickthall)
    “Prophet, We have made lawful for you your wives whom you have given their dowry, slave girls whom God has given to you as gifts…” (Sarwar)
    Just as it is lawful for Muhammad to engage in sexual intercourse with his legal wives, Allah has also made it lawful for Muhammad to engage in sexual intercourse with the women captives of war. Once again, it is stated in the above Qur’anic verse that it is Allah who provides these girls as gifts to his Prophet for sexual enjoyment. Muslims must ponder, why should Allah take such keen interest in the sexual indulgence of his Prophet? What lesson is Allah teaching the rest of the Muslim community by authorizing this depraved behavior for his Prophet? The only lesson that is taught here by Allah is that it is fair to rape helpless captive women. That is why Muslim men are also given the same rights as their Prophet. They too are given the right to enjoy the same illicit pleasure as the following Qur’anic verse confirms. Allah tells the Muslim men:
    Surah 4:24: “Also forbidden for you are married women,except those who have fallen in your hands as prisoners of war.” (Malik)
    “And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you.” (Pickthall)
    This means that while a Muslim man is prohibited from engaging in sex with a married woman, there is an exception to this rule if the married woman happens to fall into his hands as a captive of war, then under such circumstances, he is allowed to rape themarried captive.
    Maududi, a highly respected commentator on the Qur’an interprets the plain meaning of the above Qur’anic verse, saying that sex with slave-girls is lawful without the benefit of marriage:
    Two categories of women have been excluded from the general command of guarding the private parts: (a) wives, (b) women who are legally in one’s possession, i.e. slave-girls. Thus, the verse clearly lays down the law that one is allowed to have sexual relation with one’s slave-girl as with one’s wife, the basis being possession and not marriage. If marriage had been the condition, the slave-girl also would have been included among the wives, and there was no need to mention them separately. (Sayyid Abul A’La Maududi, The Meaning of the Qur’an, vol. 3p. 241, note 7)
    In the above commentary, Maududi made it very clear that according to the scriptures of Allah, marriage is not a prerequisite for a Muslim man to have sex with his slave-girls. In Islamic theology, a Muslim man has the right to demand sex from his legal wife. By virtue of the fact that Allah grants a Muslim manthis same right with his slave-girls based on possession and not marriage, she, too, must provide sex on demand. As this right to sexual intercourse is granted by Allah, her consent is not required. Also, deemed as his property, a slave-girl does not have the right to stop the sexual advances even if she does not consent to his uninvited invasion on her person. Does not this unwanted intrusion on her body categorically amount to an act of rape? Would you join a religion that codifies an edict in its holy book that permits the raping of innocent women? A vital fact that we must remember is that this law is still in force in Islam.
    As stated earlier, Surah 4:24 permits Muslim men to have sexual intercourse with married women who became slaves through capture. We will now look at the circumstances under whichSurah 4:24 was revealed. The following Hadiths will aid us to identify the incident that led to the revelation of Surah 4:24.
    Sahih Muslim, Book 8, Number 3432:
    Abu Sa’idal-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that at the Battle of Hunain, Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) sent an army to Autas and encountered the enemy and fought with them. Having overcome them and taken them captives, the Companions of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being polytheists. Then Allah, Most High, sent down regarding that: “And women already married, except those whom your right hands possess (Qur’an 4:24)”
    Sunan Abu Dawud Volume 2, Book V, Chapter 711, Number 2150:
    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri said: The Apostle of Allah sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain.They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers.So Allah, the Exalted, send down the Qur’anic verse: “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hand possess.” – Surah 4 An-Nisa 24.
    Surah 4:24 was revealed in a specific context when Muslim fighters got female captives whose husbands were still alive. And some of the holy warriors had been a little hesitant to have intercourse with the captive women in the presence of their husbands. Therefore, they consulted with their supreme leader. Muhammad realised that if Allah did not include married women in his authorization to rape captive women, then his holy warriors’ motivation to fight the next jihad will soon diminish. He immediately sought Allah’s intervention and right away, Allah revealed Surah 4:24 to sanction both rape and adultery.Because of this Qur’anic verse, the wives of the infidel captives became lawful to the conquering jihadist. The warriors who were reluctant moments ago were given the assurance that they could rape these women, both married and single, with Allah’s blessings. They now raped these women with an untroubled conscience. Whatever trace of decency that were with them just moments ago were now obliterated by Allah.
    Muslims must consider how Allah, who claims to be a holy God, can reveal verses to the effect that it progressively increases the depravity of his worshippers. Human decency and justice would dictate that no sex should take place between female prisoners of war and their captors under any circumstance. Having sex with women in their most desperate condition as war captives is not only morally wrong but it is also an act that is extremely evil.
    The raping of a civilian population by an occupying army is considered a war crime even by the laws of mere humans. Yet, this sexual crime is authorized by Allah. Thus, the laws of Allah are not only lower than that of man’s but also animalistic. Allah is guilty of promoting one of the most depraved, animalistic sexual behaviour among his worshippers by codifying the act of rape as an acceptable deed in the Qur’an. It is one thing for some soldiers in any army to strike out on their own and rape women. All armies have criminal soldiers who commit this wrong act. However, it is quite another to approve and codify rape in a sacred text. Thus, Islam is the only religion in the world that legitimizes rape and Surah 4:24 testifies to this disgraceful fact.
    The following Tafsir (Commentary) by renowned scholar, Ibn Kathir, reiterates the shocking ungodly decision of Allah to sanction rape in the Qur’an. Please read this commentary carefully:
    Tafsir Ibn Kathir on Surah 4:24:
    The Ayah (verses) means Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess.), you are prohibited from marrying women who are already married. Except those whom your right hands possess) except those whom you acquire through war, for you are allowed such women after making sure they are not pregnant. Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri said, “We captured some women from the area of Awtas who were already married, and we disliked having sexual relations with them because they already had husbands. So, we asked the Prophet about this matter, and this Ayah was revealed, (Also (forbidden are) women already married,except those whom your right hands possess).Accordingly, we had sexual relations with these women.” This is the wording collected by At-Tirmidhi An-Nasa’i, Ibn Jarir and Muslim in their Sahih.
    Through this verse in the Qur’an and verified by a number of Hadiths there emerges a clear picture of divine authorization of rape, adultery and fornication. Allah took it upon himself to sanction the raping of women, including married ones, who unfortunately became captives of the Muslim warriors. Thus, the divine approval of rape is engraved in Islam’s theology. Only the most debased religion will sanction rape. Can a religion that permits men to have forced sex with their captives come from mankind’s Creator? Absolutely not!
    The Islamic Legal Manual “Umdat al-Salik,” which carries the endorsement of Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, states the following:
    “When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.” Why? So that they are free to become the concubines of their captors. The Qur’an permits Muslim men to have intercourse with their wives and their slave girls: “Forbidden to you are … married women, except those whom you own as slaves” (Surah 4:23-24).
    Women and children are distributed among the holy warriors after Muhammad received one-fifth of the war booty. Women captives are either sold or forced to become sex-slaves and concubines of the conquering jihadists. This depravity of Allah is too severe for any rational person to ignore. It goes against the very nature of God in whose image we are created.
    Acts of Rape During the Holy Wars of Allah
    Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 46, Number 718:
    Narrated Ibn Muhairiz: I saw Abu Said and asked him about coitus interruptus. Abu Said said, “We went with Allah’s Apostle, in the Ghazwa of Barli Al-Mustaliq and we captured some of the ‘Arabs as captives, and the long separation from our wives was pressing us hard and we wanted to practice coitus interruptus.We asked Allah’s Apostle (whether it was permissible). He said, “It is better for you not to do so. No soul, (that which Allah has) destined to exist, up to the Day of Resurrection, but will definitely come, into existence.”
    Sahih Muslim, Volume 2, Number 3371:
    …Abu Sirma said to Abu Said al Khudri: “O Abu Said, did you hear Allah’s messenger mentioning about al-azl (coitus interruptus)?” He said, “Yes”, and added: “We went out with Allah’s messenger on the expedition to the Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing azl” (withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: “We are doing an act whereas Allah’s messenger is amongst us; why not ask him?” So we asked Allah’s messenger and he said: “It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born”.
    Muhammad’s men inquired him with an ethical question regarding “coitus interruptus.” Having taken some women captives, they wanted to do coitus interruptus with them. They asked Muhammad whether it was permissible. He told them, “It is better that you should not do it, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection.”When Muhammad said “it is better that you should not do it,” he was referring to coitus interruptus and not to the act of raping the captives. The subject of a soul coming into existence will not be necessary if sex or in this case rape is not permitted in the first place. He made it clear to them that “coitus interruptus”will be pointless because “every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.” Clearly, rape was on the agenda and it was not an issue with Muhammad. The only real question was the technique itself. Since Allah has already sanctioned rape, it is definitely not an issue with his Muslims warriors.
    Notice, Muhammad was quick to give his answer because he knew that Allah had already approved the raping of these captives. These immoral acts were already sanctioned in the Qur’an. Therefore, while Muhammad allowed the women to be raped, he did not approve coitus interruptus. Muhammad did not prohibit this extremely immoral practice of raping captives just when the time was right to forbid it. Instead, he allowed his men to rape the women and assuredly told them not to be unduly worried about impregnating them. For, according to him, it is with Allah as to which seed is destined to become fertilized. He stated that having sex with female captives would have nothing to do with any children being born into the world because, “every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.”
    In other words, if a child were to be born to a female captive of war, it would have been born as a result of a divine decree of Allah and not because of the sexual act of the Muslim rapist. Thus, Muhammad’s companions would not be responsible for the child being born. Allah’s divine decree alone would be responsible for the birth of that child. Muhammad was eager to reward his companions with every sensual pleasure, as long as they willingly plundered, killed, and enslaved others at his command. There did not seem to be a question, whether or not it was morally right, to have sex with the women who were married to another man. Muhammad the greatest exemplar for all mankind took his stand against the weak and helpless victims, so the powerful could satisfy their immoral animalistic desires.
    In another account, Muhammad even seemed to be impatient with his companions.He was eager, even sexually stimulated, to have the adulterous orgy begin. He wanted to have his companions rape the women immediately. At this point, it did not matter to him if they practiced coitus interruptus or not. He shouted out his command three times, “Verily you do it, verily you do it, verily you do it!”
    Sahih Muslim, Book 8, Number 3373:
    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported:“We took women captives, and we wanted to do ‘azl with them. We then asked Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) about it, and he said to us: Verily you do it, verily you do it, verily you do it, but the soul which has to be born until the Day of Judgment must be born.”
    Well, they obeyed and they raped. In the course of our discussion, we need to keep clear in mind the objective of this article. The issue at hand is rape and not coitus interruptus. Whether these monsters practiced coitus interruptus or not, it does not in any way diminish or absolve the culpability of their evil crimes. Muhammad, Allah and Islam sanctioned rape and that is what concerns us in our discussion. Coitus interruptus will not be an issue if rape is strictly forbidden by Allah. It is really unbelievable how Muslims can trust and submit to a deity who morality is so debased. Any human being with a trace of decency will shudder at the acts permitted by Allah for his male worshippers. Let us now look at some of the noble acts of the Prophet of Islam.
    The War Trophies of the Prophet of Islam
    Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 46, Number 717:
    Narrated Ibn Aun: Prophet had suddenly attackedBani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day.
    And she is not the only war trophy for our noble Prophet.
    “Sirat Rasul Allah” by Ishaq, pg. 464:
    After 800-900 male adults of Bani Quraiza were beheaded in batches, and thrown in trenches dug in Madina, the apostle divided their property, wives and children as booty… He took Rayhana d. Amr b. Khunafa for himself.
    Muhammad destroyed the Bani Quraiza tribe. All the adult male Jews were beheaded so that no husbands were left. This verdict was carried out despite the fact that the tribe of Bani Quraiza had surrendered unconditionally. The women and children were taken as prisoners and their wealth were divided among the Muslim warriors. Then, the Prophet of Islam took one of the widows he had just made – Rayhana bint Amr – for himself. What Muhammad did was grossly wicked, evil, cruel, immoral, unholy and satanic. You could be a happily married woman living your own life, but if Muhammad and his holy warriors attacked your town and captured you, you would lose all your rights. And while your husband is being killed or enslaved, you would be given to a Muslim warrior who would rape you with Allah’s blessings. This is the evil path that Muhammad has trodden and this is the evil path that he has left for his followers to emulate for all eternity.
    Safiyah bint Huyeiy Ibn Akhtab was another Jewish woman who was captured when Muhammad’s troops attacked and brought her to the Prophet as part of his share of the booty. Safiyah was seventeen and beautiful. Acting under the orders of Muhammad, Muslims killed her father, husband and many of her relatives. Muhammad ordered Kinana, the young husband of Safiyah to be tortured to death to make him reveal the whereabouts of the treasure of the town. Muhammad could not control his sexual desire. He had sex with the young widow he had just made on the very night after he had wiped out her entire family.
    Ibn Hisham, Book of Tabaqat:
    “Safiyah was born in Medinah. She belonged to the Jewish tribe of Banu ‘I-Nadir. When this tribe was expelled from Medinah in the year 4 A.H, Huyaiy was one of those who settled in the fertile colony of Khaibar together with Kinana ibn al-Rabi’ to whom Safiyah was married a little before the Muslims attacked Khaibar. She was then seventeen. One mile from Khaibar. Here the Prophet married Safiyah. She was groomed and made-up for the Prophet by Umm Sulaim, the mother of Anas ibn Malik. They spent the night there. Abu Ayyub al-Ansari guarded the tent of the Prophet the whole night. When, in the early dawn, the Prophet saw Abu Ayyub strolling up and down, he asked him what he meant by this sentry-go; he replied: “I was afraid for you with this young lady. You had killed her father, her husband and many of her relatives, and until recently, she was an unbeliever. I was really afraid for you on her account.” The Prophet prayed for Abu Ayyub al-Ansari (p. 766).
    Muhammad made widows out of young women so that he could sexually assault them. The fact that he could not restrain his sexual urges to allow this young widow to mourn her loved ones – who were brutally killed by him and his warriors only moments ago – shows the debased moral character of this evil man. There is no compassion in this imposter. The young and beautiful became his wives. Just think, which woman would want to marry the killer of her father, husband and many of her relatives, particularly moments after their brutal death? The other captives whom he felt were not good enough for him were either sold or used as sex-slaves. Muhammad is not only a confirmed rapist but also a common thief and murderer.
    Muslims who defend the evil acts of their Prophet must be completely perverse in their values for failing to see the absolute evil nature of this man. Killing men and possessing their women are acts of savagery. There is nothing exemplary in the heinous crimes of this exceedingly evil man.
    Surah 48:20: “Allah promiseth you much booty that ye will capture, and hath given you this in advance,and hath withheld men’s hands from you, that it may be a token for the believers, and that He may guide you on a right path.” (Pickthall)
    Allah has promised Muslim warriors “with much booty that they will capture.” And this means more slave-girls. And Allah“hath withheld men’s hands” so that Muslim men can rape their wives with ease. Can you imagine having a pimp as your god and a rapist as your prophet? Muslims have the full right granted by Allah to murder, rape, enslave and loot the property of unbelievers. There is no such thing as the “Golden Rule” of Christianity in Islam.
    Pause for a moment and contemplate on the utterly destructive nature of Islam. Can you picture the agony and shame the husbands must have suffered, watching strangers violate the bodies of their loved ones? Can any man face a humiliation more intense than this? Feel the unbearable torment and agony of these men. Imagine, what thoughts of self-condemnation must have passed through their minds, as they had to stand by helplessly and watch Muhammad’s companions sexually assault their wives like animals. For these unfortunate men whose wives mean everything to them, to say it was a horrific experience is an understatement.
    Now think about it from the women’s point of view. She just experienced one of the most horrifying events in her life – the destruction of her people and family. Her people were attacked and her side lost. Many of the husbands, fathers, and sons are now dead. Some of the men have been captured alive either to be sold or to be kept as personal slaves. The women and children are taken as captives. The captives are now distributed amongst the Muslim men as slaves. Her children are separated from her. She does not know of their whereabouts. She is uncertain of her own future, as well as those of her children. The loss of her beloved husband haunts her. He is either dead or enslaved. She is now in the total power of her captors. The holy Muslim warrior has been separated from his wife for a while. Now out on the field of battle, the sexually hungry predator moves lustfully towards her to ravage her sexually. Do you think that she will now offer herself willingly to copulate with the very man who brought death and destruction to her people?
    What woman do you think would look upon with loving eyes at the very man who brought death and destruction upon her loved ones, family and people? And this is the utter nonsense that Muslim apologists want us to believe. They want us to believe that these women accepted and converted to Islam with open hearts. They want us to believe that these women delivered themselves to be raped with open arms and legs to the conquering jihadist. Such are the lies and deceptions of Islam and its defenders. Can any true conversion into Islam really take place under such circumstances? To protect their children, many widows who were victims of Muslim conquest, readily agreed to conversion so that their children were spared from slavery and were raised as Muslims. Just as the saying goes that there are no atheist in foxholes, fear can produce willing converts.
    When you undertake the study of Islam, it is as if you have left the sanity of our universe and entered a totally different alien world where rape, murder, enslavement, looting, massacres, terror, violence, and pedophilia are no longer crimes against humanity and no longer sins against the laws of God but are the very laws of God.
    We will now consider an event that will further reveal Islam’s stand on rape. It will expose the morally debased nature of Islam and its Prophet. It will also disclose the utterly uncaring attitude that Islam has towards the helpless victims of rape. This event will show the ease with which women are subjected to rape. It also serves to confirm that Islam can never be the religion of the true God. The Islamic laws that directly contribute to the humiliation and the sufferings of millions of helpless women can never come from the true God who is the essence of love.
    Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 637:
    Narrated Buraida: The Prophet sent ‘Ali to Khalid to bring the Khumus (of the booty) and I hated Ali, and ‘Ali had taken a bath (after a sexual act with a slave-girl from the Khumus). I said to Khalid, “Don’t you see this (i.e. Ali)?” When we reached the Prophet, I mentioned that to him. He said, “O Buraida! Do you hate Ali?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “Do you hate him, for he deserves more than that from the Khumus.
    “Khumus” is one-fifth of the spoils of war that is reserved for Muhammad. According to the notes provided for the above Hadith, Buraida hated Ali not because he had raped a slave-girl but for taking from the Khumus without permission. Let us analyze the above incident:
    The Prophet sent Ali to Khalid to bring the Khumus (of the booty) and… Ali had taken a bath (after a sexual act with a slave-girl from the Khumus).
    What was Muhammad’s response to Buraida who reported this incident to him?
    Do you hate Ali for this? . . . Do not hate him, for he deserves more than that from the Khumus.
    This Hadith clearly reveals that Muslims are actually permitted torape their victims. This single episode is sufficient to see the dark side of Islam and Muhammad. Ali took a newly captured female prisoner of war and had sex with her. When Muhammad was informed of this, he did not voice a single objection against the wrong committed on the helpless prisoner of war. Neither was he concerned about the welfare of this unfortunate woman. Nor was he shocked by the serious attack on the decency of this poor victim. Why? Because raping slave-girls and war-captives is a norm in Allah’s religion. Muhammad’s only concern was for the rights of the rapist. In his view, these women are nothing more than objects of sex to gratify the sexual urges of Muslim men.
    Ali was the husband of Muhammad’s daughter, Fatima. Even in today’s sexually permissive world, how many fathers-in-law would defend the rights of their sons-in-law to engage in illicit sexual intercourse? How many fathers-in-law would defend the rights of their sons-in-law to rape defenceless women? But, Muhammad did so in accordance to the dictates and norms of Islam. He defended his son-in-law by saying that “he deserves more than that from the Khumus.” The implication of his statement suggests that Ali deserves to rape more women from the captives. After all, are not captives of war fair games to be raped at will in Islam? After all, does not Allah permit and encourage rape? After all, is Islam not an utterly depraved religion?
    According to the edict of Islam, rape is jihad. In the ethics of jihad, it is not considered a sin to have forced sex with a woman as long as she is a non-Muslim captive or slave. In fact, it is not only encouraged in the teachings of Islam but it is also supported by the example of the Prophet of Islam. In Islamic theology, jihad is a like a magical wand. It transforms sinful practices like murder, looting, destruction of property and rape into acts of virtue.
    Please read the following Hadith carefully. This Hadith describes a typical raid, in which women and children are captured as they attempt to flee the attacking Muslims.
    Sahih Muslim, Book 19, Number 4345:
    “…and then we attacked from all sides and reached their watering-place where a battle was fought. Some of the enemies were killed and some were taken prisoners. I saw a group of persons that consisted of women and children[escaping in the distance]. I was afraid lest they should reach the mountain before me, so I shot an arrow between them and the mountain. When they saw the arrow, they stopped. So I brought them, driving them along.”
    The Muslim narrator is Muhammad’s adopted son. He sees the women trying to escape (following the massacre of their men) and he cuts off their route by shooting an arrow into their path. These women are not trying to seek refuge with the jihadist, as Muslim apologist wants us to believe but are fleeing from the Muslims. The Hadith goes on to recount that Muhammad personally demanded one of the captured women for his own use. Let’s continue with our reading of the Hadith:
    “I drove them along until I brought them to Abu Bakr who bestowed that girl upon me as a prize. So we arrived in Medina. I had not yet disrobed her when the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) met me in the street and said: “Give me that girl.”
    The words of Muhammad’s adopted son, “I had not yet disrobed her” reveal the sickening condition in Islam. Whenever the Muslim army conducted a raid, they always had the thirst for the succulent bodies of infidel women. Each woman captive serves as an opportunity for the pious to rape. And Muhammad was no different. In fact, he could not wait to satisfy his lust. He shamelessly ordered his son, “Give me that girl.” This is a typical scene from the glorious golden days of Islam. Sexual predators from prophet to foot soldiers. Shame, honor, virtue and self-respect are alien to the religion of Islam.
    As one might conclude, Muhammad’s obvious approval of raping women captured in battle, and his own personal participation in it is of intense inconvenience to the Muslim apologists of our time. Try as they might to defend Muhammad’s actions, the overbearing evidences incriminate Muhammad at every turn. All the above verses from the Qur’an and Hadith prove that Muhammad allowed Muslims to do to female slaves what are clearly undeniable acts of rape. Muhammad and his men were allowed by the eternal laws of Allah to rape their slaves and captives. Rape is considered as a serious crime to all descent human beings but not to Allah and his Prophet. Religion is supposed to condemn crimes which are committed against another human being but that is not the case with the religion of Islam. Muslims must ask themselves, “How can Allah give laws that are criminal in nature?”
    The entire Islamic moral universe devolves solely from the life and teachings of Muhammad. Everything that has been discussed up to now is not only history but also Sunnah (the example of the perfect pattern of action and morality practiced by Muhammad). All morality in Islam is patterned after the example of Muhammad. Everything that he did and said defines what is permitted or forbidden. Muhammad repeatedly sanctioned forced sex (rape) with infidel females after they were captured. The Hadith clearly reports that he got first choice of the women. So if Muhammad was involved in the rape of infidels, then rape is a virtue. It is not a sin because Muhammad did it. And he set the pattern for Muslims to follow for all eternity.
    All these facts from Islamic sources themselves clearly demonstrate that Allah who sanctions rape in the Qur’an simply cannot be the true God. And Muhammad simply cannot be the prophet of the true God. Allah’s directive in the Qur’an is in direct violation of the divine Laws of the Almighty God, Jehovah. The teachings of Allah in the Qur’an also stand condemned by the divine Laws of Jehovah who stated centuries before the Qur’an was revealed:
    Exodus 20:17: “You must not desire your neighbor’s wife.”
    1 Thessalonians 4:3-5, 7: “For this is the will of God, your sanctification, that you should abstain from fornication. That every one of you should know how to get possession of his own wife in sanctification and honor: Not in the passion of lust, like the Gentiles that know not God… For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto sanctification.”
    Exodus 20:14: “Thou shall not commit adultery.”
    Matthew 5:27-28: “You have heard that it was said to them: ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery.’ But I say to you, that whosoever shall look on a woman to lust after her, hath already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
    These are the Laws of a Holy God. If Jehovah even forbids his worshipper to develop a covetous sexual craving for another person’s wife, do you think he will authorize his worshipper to rape her? Just think, would the true God inspire a verse sanctioning rape and adultery centuries after it is taught in the Bible that even looking at a woman in a lustful manner is immoral? We would rightfully expect the true God to maintain the same holy standard of morality. Thus, the Qur’an cannot be the Word of God. For a Christian man, there is no place for sex, let alone rape, outside the confinements of his marital union with a single wife.
    Jesus also gave his followers the following divine command:
    Matthew 22:39: “Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself.”
    Any religion that sanctions rape is both dangerous and destructive. Our mothers, sisters, wives and daughters are not safe as long as this abomination is allowed to exist. Perversion and lust knows no boundaries especially when it is religiously sanctified. Therefore, it is imperative to act and expose this evil cult before it consumes everything that is righteous, true and good. This religion grows and strives by committing evil.
    Muslims consider Islam as the best and the perfect religion. So, how can you improve on something that is already perfect? Thus, Islam will always remain evil. This also means that if the situation changes and Muslims become stronger once again, they will resume their policy of enslavement and rape. The laws of Allah are written on stones – they are unchangeable. The danger lies in the fact that Islam is a violent and expansionist religion that seeks the destruction or subjugation of all other religions, especially Christianity. Violence against non-Muslims is and has always been an integral aspect of Islam. And the natural consequence of this destructive ideology is murder, enslavement and rape. Islammeans Submission. The principle of submission could not be any clearer. By definition, a slave is the most submissive of all people. A slave will submit completely to her master. Islam leads to Jihadand jihad leads to Sexual Slavery and sexual slavery leads toRape and rape leads to Submission and submission leads toIslam. The cycle of evil begins and ends with Islam.
    Given below is a recent Fatwa (Islamic ruling) from a widely respected mufti.
    ISLAMIC QUESTION & ANSWER, ONLINE WITH MUFTI EBRAHIM DESAI, SOUTH AFRICA, ASK THE IMAM:

    “It may, superficially, appear distasteful to copulate with a woman who is not a man’s legal wife, but once Shariah makes something lawful, we have to accept it as lawful, whether it appeals to our taste, or not; and whether we know its underlying wisdom or not.”
    We have come to the conclusion of our analysis on the subject concerning the sanction of rape in Islam. The evidences provided in this article are by no means exhaustive but are sufficient enough to assist sincere seekers of truth, both Muslims and non-Muslims to see the dangers of Islam. Women who are tempted to convert to this religion must stop and think before it is too late for them. They must realize that according to Allah it is “lawful and good” to rape women.
    Surah 8:69: “But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good.” (Yusuf Ali)
    Not only does Allah grant permission for women to be captured and raped, but he also allows Muslims to enjoy raping these poor women in the presence of their husbands. Can a religion as debased as this originate with the true God? You be the judge.

    • Lucky, I am being the judge!

      You quoted the verse : Surah 8:69: “But (now) enjoy what ye took in war, lawful and good.” (Yusuf Ali)The words are :

      “Lawful and good” in the above verse. Raping is NOT “good and lawful” in Islam. Nobody raped any woman in front of their husbands. This happens in non-Islamic countries during the time of coups!!!!!!!!

      Give further proof as nothing of the above you have written is true!

      • YO PLUM,

        ALL MOHAMMEDANS ARE LIARS & YOU ARE ONE OF THE WORST!

        ALL MOHAMMEDANS ARE POSSESSED BY JINNS!

        TAQIYYA/LYING IS THEIR NATURAL LANGUAGE.

        CHASITY IN THE TEACHINGS OF PROPHET MOHAMMED

        ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF ALLAH.

        ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED THE RAPE OF FEMALE CAPTIVES:

        RAPE JIHAD:

        Sahih Muslim Book 08. N 3371Marriage

        Chapter: Al-Azl (incomplete sexual intercourse): Coitus Interruptus.

        Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women;

        and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.

        So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him?

        So we asked Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.

        REMEMBER:

        ISLAM TEACHES THAT RAPE IS ORDAINED OF GOD

        ALLAH & MOHAMMED SANCTIONED RAPE

        Al-’Azl

        Al-’Azl, (العزل) also known as coitus interruptus, is the practice of having sexual intercourse with a woman but withdrawing the penis before ejaculation. Apparently al-’Azl with female captives and slaves was a pretty important topic for Muhammad and his companions as evidenced by the abundance of Hadith material on the subject.

        Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle .

        Sahih Bukhari 7:62:135

        Narrated Jabir: We used to practice coitus interrupt us while the Quran was being revealed. Jabir added: We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah’s Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed.
        Sahih Bukhari 7:62:136

        When RAPING your captive, it’s better if you do not pull out at the end

        THIS IS ISLAM

        Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: that while he was sitting with Allah’s Apostle he said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interruptus(RAPE WITHOUT PREGNANCY)?” The Prophet said, “Do you really do that? It is better for you not to PULL OUT. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence.”
        Sahih Bukhari 3:34:432

        Abu Said said, “We went with Allah’s Apostle, in the Ghazwa of Barli Al-Mustaliq and we captured some of the ‘Arabs as captives, and the long separation from our wives was pressing us hard and we wanted to practice coitus interruptus. We asked Allah’s Apostle (whether it was permissible). He said, “It is better for you not to do so. No soul, (that which Allah has) destined to exist, up to the Day of Resurrection, but will definitely come, into existence.”

        Sahih Bukhari 3:46:718

        We went out with Allah’s Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. ………
        We asked (him) about it and he said, “It is better for you not to PULL OUT, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist.”

        Sahih Bukhari 5:59:459

        Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured females and wanted sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they asked the Prophet about coitus interruptus. He said, “It is better that you leave it in, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection.” Qaza’a said, “I heard Abu Sa’id saying that the Prophet said, ‘No soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it.”

        Sahih Bukhari 9:93:506

        Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: We got female captives in the war booty and we used to do coitus interruptus with them. So we asked Allah’s Apostle about it and he said, “Do you really do that?” repeating the question thrice, “There is no soul that is destined to exist but will come into existence, till the Day of Resurrection.”

        Sahih Bukhari 7:62:137

        THE REASON WHY THERE ARE FEW VIRGINS LEFT!

        Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That while he was sitting with the Prophet a man from the Ansar came and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! We get slave girls from the war captives and we love property; what do you think about coitus interruptus?” Allah’s Apostle said, “Do you do that? It is better for you not to pull out, for there is no soul which Allah has ordained to come into existence but will be created.”

        Sahih Bukhari 8:77:600

        Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them.

        Sahih Muslim 8:3371, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3372

        Yahya related to me from Malik from Rabia ibn Abi Abd ar-Rahman from Muhammad ibn Yahya ibn Habban that Ibn Muhayriz said, “I went into the mosque and saw Abu Said al-Khudri and so I sat by him and asked him about coitus interruptus. Abu Said al-Khudri said, ‘We went out with the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, on the expedition to the Banu al-Mustaliq. We took some Arabs prisoner, and we desired the women as celibacy was hard for us. We wanted the ransom, so we wanted to practise coitus interruptus. We said, ‘Shall we practise coitus interruptus while the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is among us before we ask him?’ We asked him about that and he said, ‘You don’t have to not do it. There is no self which is to come into existence up to the Day of Rising but that it will come into existence.’ ”

        It’s okay to practice ‘azl when having sex with your slave-girl
        Narrated AbuSa’id al-Khudri: A man said: Apostle of Allah, I have a slave-girl and I withdraw the penis from her (while having intercourse), and I dislike that she becomes pregnant. I intend (by intercourse) what the men intend by it. The Jews say that withdrawing the penis (azl) is burying the living girls on a small scale. He (the Prophet) said: The Jews told a lie. If Allah intends to create it, you cannot turn it away.

        Abu Dawud 11:2166

        Jabir (Allah be pleased with him) reported that a man came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: I have a slave-girl who is our servant and she carries water for us and I have intercourse with her, but I do not want her to conceive. He said: Practise ‘azl, if you so like, but what is decreed for her will come to her. The person stayed back (for some time) and then came and said: The girl has become pregnant, whereupon he said: I told you what was decreed for her would come to her.

        Sahih Muslim 8:3383

        Your slave-girl is your field, so water it or leave it thirsty if you want
        Yahya related to me from Malik from Damra ibn Said al-Mazini from al-Hajjaj ibn Amr ibn Ghaziya that he was sitting with Zayd ibn Thabit when Ibn Fahd came to him. He was from the Yemen. He said, “Abu Said! I have slave-girls. None of the wives in my keep are more pleasing to me than them, and not all of them please me so much that I want a child by them, shall I then practise coitus interruptus?” Zayd ibn Thabit said, “Give an opinion, Hajjaj!” “I said, ‘May Allah forgive you! We sit with you in order to learn from you!’ He said, ‘Give an opinion! ‘I said, ‘She is your field, if you wish, water it, and if you wish, leave it thirsty. I heard that from Zayd.’ Zayd said, ‘He has spoken the truth.’ ”

        Al-Muwatta 29 32.99b

        “You don’t need your slave-girl’s permission to practice ‘azl with her.”
        Yahya related to me from Malik from Humayd ibn Qays al-Makki that a man called Dhafif said that Ibn Abbas was asked about coitus interruptus. He called a slave-girl of his and said, “Tell them.” She was embarrassed. He said, “It is alright, and I do it myself.” Malik said, “A man does not practise coitus interruptus with a free woman unless she gives her permission. There is no harm in practising coitus interruptus with a slave-girl without her permission. Someone who has someone else’s slave-girl as a wife, does not practise coitus interruptus with her unless her people give him permission.”

        Additional Hadith about ‘azl

        Sahih Muslim
        Sa’d b. Abu Waqqas (Allah be pleased with him) reported that a person came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: I do ‘azi with my wife. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Why do you do that? The person said: I fear harm to her child or her children. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (way peace be upon him) said: If that were harmful it would harm the Persians and the Greeks.

        Sahih Muslim 8:3394

        Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported: We took women captives, and we wanted to do ‘azl with them. We then asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) about it, and he said to us: Verily you do it, verily you do it, verily you do it, but the soul which has to be born until the Day of judgment must be born.

        Sahih Muslim 8:3373

        Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) (was asked if he had heard it himself), to which he said: Yes. (I heard) Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: There is no harm if you do not practise it, for it (the birth of the child) is something ordained (by Allah).

        Sahih Muslim 8:3374, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3375

        Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) was asked about ‘azl, whereupon he said: There is no harm if you do not do that, for it (the birth of the child) is something ordained. Muhammad (one of the narrators) said: (The words) La ‘alaykum (there is no harm) implies its Prohibition.

        Sahih Muslim 8:3376

        Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that mention was made of ‘azl in the presence of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) whereupon he said: Why do you practise it? They said: There is a man whose wife has to suckle the child, and if that person has a sexual intercourse with her (she may conceive) which he does not like, and there is another person who has a slave-girl and he has a sexual intercourse with her, but he does not like her to have conception so that she may not become Umm Walad, whereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: There is no harm if you do not do that, for that (the birth of the child) is something pre- ordained. Ibn ‘Aun said: I made a mention of this hadith to Hasan, and he said: By Allah, (it seems) as if there is upbraiding in it (for ‘azl).

        Sahih Muslim 8:3377, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3378 and Sahih Muslim 8:3379

        Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported: Mention was made about al-’azl in the presence of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), whereupon he said: Why any one of you practises it? (He did not say: One of you should not do it), for there is no created soul, whose creator is not Allah.

        Sahih Muslim 8:3380

        Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about ‘azl, whereupon he said: The child does not come from all the liquid (sermen) and when Allah intends to create anything nothing can prevent it (from coming into existence).

        Sahih Muslim 8:3381, See also: Sahih Muslim 8:3382

        Jabir b. ‘Abdullah (Allah be pleased with them) reported that a person asked Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) saying: I have a slave-girl and I practise ‘azl with her, whereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: This cannot prevent that which Allah has decreed. The person then came (after some time) and said: Messenger of Allah, the slave-girl about whom I talked to you has conceived, whereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: I am the servant of Allah and His Messenger.

        Sahih Muslim 8:3384

        Al-Muwatta

        Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu’n-Nadr, the mawla of Umar ibn Ubaydullah from Amir ibn Sad ibn Abi Waqqas from his father that he used to practise coitus interruptus.

        Al-Muwatta 29 32.96b

        Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu’n-Nadr, the mawla of Umar ibn Ubaydullah from Ibn Aflah, the mawla of Abu Ayyub al-Ansari from an umm walad of Abu Ayyubal-Ansari that he practised coitus interruptus.

        Al-Muwatta 29 32.97b
        Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar did not practise coitus interruptus and thought that it was disapproved.

        Al-Muwatta 29 32.98b

        Yahya said that Malik related from Ibn Shihab from Salim ibn Abdullah ibn Umar from his father that Umar ibn al-Khattab said, “What’s the matter with men who have intercourse with their slave-girls and then dismiss them? No slave-girl comes to me whose master confesses that he has had intercourse with her but that I connect her child to him, whether or not he has practised coitus interruptus or stopped having intercourse with her.”

        Al-Muwatta 36 23.24b
        Malik related to me from Nafi that Safiyya bint Abi Ubayd informed him that Umar ibn al-Khattab said, “What is the matter with men who have intercourse with their slave-girls and then leave them to go? No slave-girl comes to me whose master confesses that he has had intercourse with her but that I connect her child to him, whether or not he has practised coitus interruptus or left off from intercourse with her.” Yahya said that he heard Malik say, “What is done in our community about an umm walad who commits a crime is that her master is liable for what she has done up to her value. He does not have to surrender her, and he cannot be made to bear more than her value for her crime.”

        Al-Muwatta 36 23.25b

        STONED TO DEATH

        On October 30, 2008, the United Nations condemned the stoning to death of Aisha Duhulowa, a 13-year-old girl who had been gang-raped and then sentenced to death by a Sharia court for fornication (Zina). She was screaming and begging for mercy, but when some family members attempted to intervene, shots were fired by the Islamic militia and a baby was killed.

        Local Sharia courts in Bangladesh regularly punish raped minor girls and women by flogging and beating them with shoes.[1] Similar cases of punishing raped women are Mina v. the State, Bibi v. the State and Bahadur v. the State.[2] Sharia courts in Pakistan have punished thousands of raped women by long term imprisonment.[3]

        You might think that such horrific barbarity cannot be the real Sharia law; that it is a misapplication of the law by ignorant clergy. Sadly, neither is true.

        There is a traceable dynamic in Sharia Law that is bound to lead to this barbarity. And unless we abandon these laws we will never be able to emerge from this barbarity. It was a blunder that Muslim jurists included rape in the Hudood section of Sharia Law that deals with murder, bodily harm, apostasy, drinking, defamation, theft, adultery and highway robbery. But anyone who tried to change these laws ended up banging their heads against the wall. Mawdudi, the founding father of modern Political Islam, claims that even if all the world’s Muslims together wanted to make the slightest change in these laws, they would not be allowed to do so.[4]

        But change is necessary.

        Another key element of these laws is that only eye-witnesses are acceptable and no circumstantial evidence can be accepted.[5] Rape is included in the Dyat (monetary compensation for bodily harm) section of Sharia Law because it is considered as “Bodily Harm” or “Robbing Property” (chastity). This classification led jurists to create these laws:

        * A rapist is obliged to pay the victim the amount typically received as marriage payment to similar brides.[6]

        * “If the rapist cannot be punished for any reason he will pay the victim the amount equal to bride-money.”[7]

        As no other punishment is mentioned, the punishment of rape can be only financial compensation. But Jurists missed the point that rape is a crime of its own kind. It has a devastating psychological and social impact on raped women. They are shamed to death, socially outcast, unsuitable for marriage, bring shame on the family and in some countries become the victims of honor killing. Many raped women commit suicide in Muslim countries.

        The Quranic word “Zina” means sexual relation between a man and woman not married to each other. It is called adultery for married persons and fornication for unmarried ones. The Quran severely prohibits Zina. Muslim jurists also included rape in the category of Zina because in rape cases such sexual relations “between a man and woman not married to each other,” even though forced on the victim, have taken place. As rape is not mentioned in the Quran, the death sentence for rapists originated from the Prophet’s example: “Narrated Wa’il ibn Hujr: When a woman went out in the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him) for prayer, a man attacked her and overpowered (raped) her. …he said: Stone him to death”.[8]

        The laws are so clear about defining rape and the requirement for proof of rape that a judge has no option but punish the rape victims.

        When rape is caught or reported, “sex between a man and woman not married to each other” can be proven by testimony, physical evidences of bodily scars/bruises, torn clothing or pregnancy of the victim. Then the Sharia laws are enforced.

        Sharia Law: The rapist will be punished to death if force on the victim is proven.[9]
        Clear enough. But exactly how can “force on the victim” be proven? The answer must surely rank as one of the most insane and sexist laws in human history.

        (A) “Proof of Zina (adultery) or Zina Bil-Jabr (rape) liable to Hadd shall be one of the following:

        (a) The accused makes confession or
        (b) There are at least four Muslim adult male witnesses”[10]
        (B) “Proof of adultery or rape liable to Hadd shall be one of the following:
        (a) The accused makes confession, or
        (b) There are at least four Muslim adult male witnesses.”[11]
        (C) “Punishment will take place when Zina or rape have been proved by witness.”[12]
        (D) Sharia Law rejects the witness of women in Hudood cases.[13]
        (E) “The evidence of women is originally inadmissible on account of their weakness of understanding, want of memory and incapacity of governing.”[14]

        Because such “proofs” are almost impossible to obtain and because circumstantial evidence is not accepted, a rape cannot be proved as rape in a Sharia court. Instead, “sex outside marriage” is proved for the woman by her complaint or physical scars or torn cloths or pregnancy etc. Then the law of “Punishment for Sex Outside Marriage” i.e. stoning to death for married adulterers and flogging and exile for unmarried adulterers are applied to the rape-victims.[15] On the other hand, a rapist has simply to deny the crime and go scott free. As the New York Times reports: “Ms. Lawal, a divorced woman, identified a man as the father of her child. The man denied the charge, swore on the Koran, and was deemed innocent by the trial court. No one suggested DNA tests.”[16]
        But DNA tests have no place in Hudood Laws either. The BBC reported that Zafran Bibi of Pakistan “went to the police to register a case of rape, but she herself was instead sentenced to death for having an adulterous affair.”[17] About conducting a DNA test to identify the rapist, the Dawn reports: “Justice Ali Nawaz Chauhan of the Lahore High Court has observed that the DNA test is not acceptable as evidence to establish the offence of Zina under the Hudood laws which require a direct testimony in such cases..”[18]

        This is how Sharia Law punishes raped women. The sources of these laws span the period from the 7th century to recent times. Some Muslim countries have withdrawn from the application of these laws, but these laws are still alive and active in many Muslim societies. Many Muslims talk about it, but there has never been a concerted effort to end this barbarity. It is true that many, including the UN’s Children Fund, have expressed alarm over the plight of Aisha Duhulowa, but history tells us that merely condemning these acts or calling on the humanity of the perpetrators has never stopped the violent soldiers of God. The solution can only been found by raising the awareness and opposition of the entire world, irrespective of religion.

        Muslims must reject this barbarity or risk Islam being seen as the criminal. The screams of little Aisha Duhulowa will echo around the world until this is done.

        HOW A WOMAN MUST PROVE RAPE

        Question:

        Why are rape victims often punished by Islamic courts as adulterers?

        Summary Answer:

        Under Islamic law, rape can only be proven if the rapist confesses or if there are four male witnesses. Women who allege rape, without the benefit of the act having been witnessed by four men who subsequently develop a conscience, are actually confessing to having sex. If they or the accused happens to be married, then it is considered to be adultery.

        The Qur’an:

        Qur’an (2:282) – Establishes that a woman’s testimony is worth only half that of a man’s in court (there is no “he said/she said” gridlock in Islam).

        Qur’an (24:4) – “And those who accuse free women then do not bring four witnesses (to adultery), flog them…” Strictly speaking, this verse addresses adultery (revealed at the very time that Muhammad’s favorite wife was being accused of adultery on the basis of only three witnesses, coincidentally enough) however it is a part of the theological underpinning of the Sharia rule.

        Qur’an (24:13) – “Why did they not bring four witnesses of it? But as they have not brought witnesses they are liars before Allah.”

        Qur’an (2:223) – “Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will…” There is no such thing as rape in marriage, as a man is permitted unrestricted sexual access to his wives.
        From the Hadith:

        Bukhari (5:59:462) – The background for the Qur’anic requirement of four witnesses to adultery. Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, was accused of cheating [on her polygamous husband]. Three witnesses corroborated the event, but Muhammad apparently did not want to believe it, and so established the arbitrary rule that four witnesses are required.

        Additional Notes:

        Rape is virtually impossible to prove under strict Islamic law (Sharia). If the man claims that the act was consensual sex, there is very little that the woman can do to refute this. Islam places the burden of avoiding sexual encounters of any sort on the woman.

        A recent fatwa from a mainstream Islamic site echoes this rule and even chides a victim of incest for complaining when she has no “evidence”:

        However, it is not permissible to accuse the father of rape without evidence. Indeed, the Sharee’ah put some special conditions for proving Zina (fornication or adultery) that are not required in case of other crimes. The crime of Zina is not confirmed except if the fornicator admits it, or with the testimony of four trustworthy men, while the testimony of women is not accepted.

        Hence, the statement of this girl or the statement of her mother in itself does not Islamically prove anything against the father, especially that the latter denies it.

        Therefore, if this daughter has no evidence to prove that her accusations are true, she should not have claimed that she was raped by her father and she should not have taken him to the court. (IslamWeb.net, Image)

        Since it is incredibly unlikely that a child molester will violate his victim in front of “four trustworthy men”, Islamic law amounts to a free pass for sexual predators.

        Islamic law rejects forensic evidence (such as DNA) in favor of testimony. An interesting situation thus sometimes develops in cases where a victim alleges rape and the man denies that sex even took place. In the absence of four male witnesses, rape cannot be proven. The woman’s testimony then becomes a “confession” of adultery. She can be stoned, even though the male is unpunished, since he never “confessed” to a sexual act!

        Some clerics blame rape on the woman. Australian Sheik Feiz recently said a rape victim “has no one to blame but herself. She displayed her beauty to the entire world… to tease man and appeal to his carnal nature.”

        Also, there can be no such thing as rape in marriage, even if the husband has to hit the wife in order to bring about her submission. Another recent fatwa reminds a woman, she “does not have the right to refuse her husband, rather she must respond to his request every time he calls her.” (Islam Q&A, Fatwa No. 33597).

        Keep in mind that most Muslim countries do not operate under strict Islamic law, but rather under legal codes imported from the West. Therefore rape victims in these countries can and often do receive justice under more reasonable standards of proof.

        WATERMELONS & CUCUMBERS

        “If a man makes a hole in a watermelon, or a piece of dough, or a leather skin, or a statue, and has sex with it, then this is the same as what we have said about other types of masturbation [i.e., that it is halaal in the same circumstances given before, such as being on a journey].
        In fact, it is easier than masturbating with one’s hand”.
        “If a woman does not have a husband, and her lust becomes strong, then some of our scholars say: It is permissible for the woman to take an akranbij, which is a piece of leather worked until it becomes shaped like a penis, and insert it in herself. She may also use a cucumber”.
        Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129
        A Muslim Shia website notes: “Maybe this is another reason why ‘Umar the Khalifa never went on jihad: somebody had to stay behind and organize the cucumber distribution.”

        WANKING JIHAD!

        Companions of Muhammad masturbated during Jihad
        “If a man is torn between continued desire or releasing it, and if this man does not have a wife or he has a slave-girl but he does not marry, then if a man is overwhelmed by desire, and he fears that he will suffer because of this (someone like a prisoner, or a traveller, or a pauper), then it is permissible for him to masturbate, and Ahmad (ibn Hanbal) is explicit on this.

        WANKING JIHAD!

        2. Furthermore, it is narrated that the Companions of the Prophet (s) used to masturbate while they were on military expeditions or travelling”.
        Bada’i al-Fuwa’id of Ibn Qayyim (Islamic scholar), page 129
        Muttaqi (God-fearing) monkeys
        Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun: During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them.
        Sahih Bukhari 5:58:188

        ALLAH’S ARITHMETIC: 54 INTO 9 GOES NICELY

        THE WANKING PERVERT FROM MECCA

        A marriage is engaged in by 2 consenting adults.
        Do you really believe a 6 year old child would desire to marry a 51 year old man?
        Do you think that is what she would choose?
        Do you think a 9 year old girl would desire to have sex with a 54 year old?

        The thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the most disturbing thoughts that makes us cringe as it reminds us of pedophilia and the most despicable people. It is difficult to accept that the “Holy Prophet” of Mecca married Aisha when she was 6-years-old and WANKED BETWEEN HER THIGHS FOR 3 YEARS and consummated/RAPED her when she was 9. He was then, 54 years old.

        HOW TO THIGH & GET HIGH

        Now let us see how thighing is practiced on a female child & who began this evil practice. According to an official Fatwa issued in Saudi Arabia, the prophet Muhammad began to practice thighing his child-bride, Aisha when she was 6 years old until she reached 9 years of age (Fatwa No. 31409). The hadith mentioned the prophet Muhammad started performing literal sex with Aisha ONLY when she reached the age of 9 (Sahih al-Bukhari, book 62, hadith No. 89).

        Muslim scholars collectively agree, a child becomes an adult, available for sexual intercourse as soon as she reaches the age of nine. Likewise, the Shari’a allows any of the faithful to marry a six-year-old child.

        According to the fatwa, the prophet Muhammad could not have sex with his fiancée, Aisha when she was six due to her small size & age. However, the fatwa said that at age six, he would put his penis between her thighs and massage it gently because he did not want to harm her.

        Imagine a man of 51 removing the clothes of a 6-year-old girl and slipping his erect penis between her thighs, rubbing her until he ejaculated and his semen ran down her thighs. To this day, this is considered a benevolent act on the part of the adult male “not wanting to harm her.” What harm could be inflicted upon a young girl mentally and emotionally if not a grown man showing her his penis and stripping her of her clothes and rubbing his male organ between her legs?

        Of course the twisted mind that does such an evil to a female child, would not hesitate to ejaculate on her body. And if this sexually perverted evil frame of mind committed such an act upon a child, the pedophile would not stop at ejaculating on her. His evil desire would go further and rape the child before she was a mature adult. This is exactly what Muhammad did to Aisha when she was yet a child of 9.

        Before she reached puberty, he began to have sex with her. Let us see what the fatwa said about the prophet of Islam and his child-bride, Aisha.”Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the one after whom there is no [further] prophet. After the permanent committee for the scientific research and fatwas (religious decrees) reviewed the question presented to the grand Mufti Abu Abdullah Muhammad Al-Shamari, with reference number 1809 issued on 3/8/1421(Islamic calendar).

        The inquirer asked the following: ‘It has become wide spread these days, and especially during weddings, the habit of mufakhathat of the children (mufakhathat literally translated means “placing between the thighs of children” which means placing the male erected penis between the thighs of a child). What is the opinion of scholars knowing full well that the prophet, the peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, also practiced the “thighing” of Aisha – the mother of believers ?’

        After the committee studied the issue, they gave the following reply: ‘It has not been the practice of the Muslims throughout the centuries to resort to this unlawful practice that has come to our countries from pornographic movies that the kofar (infidels) and enemies of Islam send. As for the Prophet, peace and prayers of Allah be upon him, thighing his fiancée Aisha. She was six years of age and he could not have intercourse with her due to her small age.

        That is why the prophet peace and prayers of Allah be upon him placed his penis between her thighs and massaged it lightly, as the apostle of Allah had control of his penis not like other believers'” (Fatwa No. 31409).

        Thighing of children is practiced in many Arab and Muslim countries, notably in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iran, and the Gulf countries. Also evil practices like altamatu’a bil almuka’aba (pleasure from sexual contact with her breasts), altamatu’a bil alsagirah (pleasure from sexual contact with a baby girl), altamatu’a bil alradi’ah, (pleasure from sexual contact with a suckling female infant), (Reported by Baharini Women’s Rights Activist, Ghada Jamshir)

        AISHA WASHING SEMEN FROM MUHAMMAD’S CLOTHES

        From the Hadith of Bukhari:

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

        Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

        I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232:

        Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:

        I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them.

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them.

        From the Hadith of Bukhari:

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 229:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible).

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 230:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        as above (229).

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:

        Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:

        I asked ‘Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. ”

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 232:

        Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:

        I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said that ‘Aisha had said, “I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah’s Apostle and he would go for the prayers while water spots were still visible on them.

        Volume 1, Book 4, Number 233:

        Narrated ‘Aisha:

        I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them.
        MUHAMMAD RESERVED BABY AISHA FOR HIMSELF, BECAUSE SHE WAS A VIRGIN & HE WANTED A VIRGIN.
        Sahih al-Bukhari, volume 7, book 62, number 17
        Narrated jabir bin ‘abdullah:
        When I got married, Allah’s apostle said to me, “what type of lady have you married?” I replied, “I have married a matron.” he said, “why, don’t you have a liking for the virgins and for fondling them?” Jabir also said: Allah’s apostle said, “why didn’t you marry a young girl so that you might play with her and she with you?”
        Hence, Muhammad’s comments indicate that his reason for marrying Aisha while a young virgin is so that he could fondle and sexually play with her!
        AISHA WAS NOT THE ONLY BABY GIRL MUHAMMAD FANTASIZED ABOUT
        In the classic history, Sirat Rasul Allah (The Life of Muhammad) by Ibn Ishaq, there is an account in which Muhammad expressed a marital interest in a crawling baby. This event seems to have occurred around the time of the battle of of Badr, when he was about 55 years old. He had married Aisha two years earlier, when he was 53 years of age.
        (Suhayli, ii. 79: in the Riwaya of Yunus i. I. Recorded that the apostle saw her (Ummu’lfadl) when she was a baby crawling before him and said,
        ‘if she grows up and I am still alive I will marry her.’
        but he died before she grew up and sufyan b. Al-aswad b. ‘Abdu’l-asad al-Makhzumi married her and she bore him rizq and lubab… [Ibn Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad, Karachi, p. 311]
        Muhammad saw Um Habiba the daughter of Abbas while she was fatim (age of nursing) and he said, “if she grows up while I am still alive, I will marry her.” (Musnad Ahmad, number 25636)
        MUHAMMAD WOULD BATH & FONDLE AISHA
        Bukhari (6:298) – Muhammad would take a bath with the little Aisha and fondle her.
        Narrated ‘Aisha:
        The prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me. While in itikaf, he used to bring his head near me and I would wash it while I used to be in my periods (menses).
        MUHAMMAD CONSUMMATED HIS MARRIAGE TO BABY AISHA, WHEN SHE WAS 9
        Sunaan abu Dawud: book 11, number 2161:
        Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin:
        I and the apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to lie in one cloth at night while I was menstruating. If anything from me smeared him, he washed the same place (that was smeared), and did not wash beyond it. If anything from him smeared his clothe, he washed the same place and did not wash beyond that, and prayed with it (i.e. The clothe).
        MUHAMMAD WOULD SEXUALLY ABUSE HIS WIVES
        Bukhari (6:300) – Muhammad’s wives had to be available for the prophet’s fondling even when they were having their menstrual period.
        Bukhari volume 1, book 6, number 299:
        Narrated ‘Abdur-rahman bin al-Aswad:
        …(on the authority of his father) ‘Aisha said: “Whenever Allah’s apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he used to order her to put on an izar and start fondling her.” ‘Aisha added, “None of you could control his sexual desires as the prophet could.”
        WOMEN ARE SEXUAL OBJECTS
        Allah promoted this abusive sexual behavior:
        “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” [Koran 2:223]
        Koran (2:223) likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills. In this verse, Allah also gives divine sanction for anal sex.
        According to Islam, Muhammad is the perfection of humanity and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct. He had sex with Aisha at the age of nine, which amounts to rape of a minor. He also left behind an enduring legacy for aged Muslim men to fulfill their carnal desires contrary to natural law and to the life-long devastation of young girls.

        ALLAH PROMOTES PEDOPHILIA
        Quran 65.4 “and those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the ‘iddah (prescribed divorce period), if you have doubts (about their periods), is three months, and for those who have no courses [(i.e. They are still immature) their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is three months likewise, except in case of death] . And for those who are pregnant (whether they are divorced or their husbands are dead), their ‘iddah (prescribed period) is until they deliver (their burdens) (give birth) and whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to him, he will make his matter easy for him.”
        Sura (65:4) lays down rules for divorce and sets the prescribed period for divorce. It clearly says, Muslim men can marry (and divorce) little girls who have not yet reached menstruation age. This means that Muslim men were allowed to marry baby girls. This is the eternal word of god. This is an eternal law of Allah. All Muslims must believe in this teaching. Otherwise, they are no longer Muslims but apostates of Islam.

        ALLAH ORDAINS RAPE

        “All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.” 4:24

        You can have sex with slaves women captured in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like).
        Muhammad established an appalling precedent for abuse of young girls which is continued to be nurtured by the Muslim faithful. For example, Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran gave a fatwa about Quran 65.4:
        “A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.”

        • Lucky/Raj, I think you are DUMB!

          Why do you base your comments from the fake Hadiths?

          I do not represent the Muslims nor Islam even an iota. My views are personal….but like all other religious books that I have studied I find the Quran most reasonable on the high principles of morality, modesty and respect of women. Just try molesting any Muslim girl and you will see hell…brother!

          I heard two Pakistanis’ heads were chopped off in Saudi Arabia in Oct. 2010 for raping a poor street hawker by pretending to buy her merchandise, in luring her to their room!!

          • HOW DO YOU KEEP FROM SEEING THE BIGGER PICTURE?

            “I heard two Pakistanis’ heads were chopped off in Saudi Arabia in Oct. 2010 for raping a poor street hawker by pretending to buy her merchandise, in luring her to their room!!”

            YESSSSSSSS!

            THE PAKIS & OTHER POOR MOHAMMEDANS WILL PAY WITH THEIR LIFE, BUT THE ARABS HARDLY EVER PAY WITH THEIR LIFE!

            WHY?

            BLOOD MONEY!

            THEY HAVE THE MEANS OF PAYING BLOOD MONEY & SO WALK FREE, JUST LIKE THE BASTARD WHO RAPED & KILLED HIS CHILD LAST YEAR.

            HE PAYED THE BLOOD MONEY & “WALKED”!

            Saudi Arabia

            In Saudi Arabia, when a person has been killed or caused to die by another, the prescribed blood money rates are as follows:

            300,000 riyals if the victim is a Muslim man
            150,000 riyals if a Muslim woman
            50,000 riyals if a Christian or Jewish man
            25,000 riyals if a Christian or Jewish woman
            6,666 riyals if a man of any other religion
            3,333 riyals if a woman of any other religion

            The amount of compensation is based on the percentage of responsibility. Blood money is to be paid not only for murder, but also in case of unnatural death, interpreted to mean death in a fire, industrial or road accident, for instance, as long as the responsibility for it falls on the causer.

            Muhammadanism & Slavery:-

            Contrary to all the false assertions of Muhammadan historians, slavery was one of the most prevalent and most profitable institutions among the Muhammadan Arabs.

            The Quran does not approve of the enslavement of an Arab ‘Muslim’ and even of other ‘Muslims’. In reality, this was not the standard that was followed.

            Invariably, all alien slaves who converted to ‘Islam’ had no automatic right to be made free. The Arab and Muhammadan Empire had enormous numbers of slaves. Even the private in the Syrian army at the battle of Siffin, had several of them attending to him as reported by al Masudi (Vol 1:454).

            Muhammad’s concept of Allah was that of the master to the slave; all human beings were and are the slaves of Allah. They have no rights except those that Allah had pre-ordained for them. They have neither freedom of thought nor freedom of choice, since their destiny had already been pre figured by Allah.

            Under this concept, there is no love either by the slaves towards the master, nor by the master – Allah – towards his grovelling slaves, the Believers.

            The same ‘Compassionate and Merciful’ Allah, had PRE-DESTINED many of his creation to the fires of his Hell in spite of the fact, that they were completely innocent of any crimes, since they had neither the free will nor the freedom of choice for their actions.

            In Muhammadan Islam, all human existence depends on the caprice and whim and will of Allah.

            This cult, the CULT of MUHAMMAD, believes that the sole purpose of humanity, is to be slaves of the one and only Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.

            The ‘pleasures’ of the Muhammadans are derived from praying five times a day, glorifying and eternally submitting themselves to the will of Allah and most important of all is, fighting in his path against all Unbelievers; that is, the majority of human beings on planet Earth.

            This is an important reason why, Muhammad treated all people who did not believe as he did, with such contempt and total disregard for them as a collective and especially as individuals. Since the Believers are the slaves of Allah, then all Unbelievers must be the slaves of the Believers.

            Although Muhammadan scholars and historians try to put a ‘clean and compassionate face’ on the institution of slavery under ‘Islam’, one can find hundreds of articles in the Ahadith and Arab history, detailing their ‘rights’ and their punishments whether they are ‘Muslim’ or non ‘Muslim’.

            The Muhammadan Arabs, with their accomplices the African Muhammadans, were the most prolific traders and ‘harvester’ of African slaves in the history of the continent.

            The slavery of the Blacks was so prevalent, that in the Arabic language, BLACK PEOPLE are called and addressed as ABEED meaning SLAVES. They were also called Kafiroun/ Unbelievers, upon which word, the Boers of South Africa based their own epithet for blacks as ‘Kafir’.

            The country of the SUDAN is so named, because in Arabic it means the Land of the Blacks since ASWAD is the colour BLACK in Arabic. Hence, in the Arabic language and in the psyche of the Arabs, Blacks can only be Slaves.

            Most of the Arab and non Arab Muhammadan writers, authors and poets depicted the African Blacks as creatures just a bit higher than the other animals of the continent; most of these depictions are of course degrading, insulting and clearly blatantly racist. Even the Black Muhammadans, were never considered equal to the lighter coloured non Arab peoples. The term (Abd; plural Abeed) is invariably used to describe the Black Africans from whom the greatest number of slaves were acquired.

            Contrary to all of the deliberate misinformation and re-writing of the historical records, it is a fact, that the greatest Slave Traders in Africa were Arabs and/or African Muhammadans.

            It was they, who raided communities and villages all over Africa, to capture their human ‘chattel’, plundered and pirated the non Muhammadan – and sometimes even Muhammadan – villages in east and west Africa, to sell them to the captains of the European ships, who transported them to the New World – North & South America, and the Carribean islands.

            The Europeans did not need to venture into darkest Africa to do so, because these dastardly and inhumane acts were performed very efficiently by the Muhammadan Arabs and their Muhammadan black ‘brothers’ who colluded with them in this obscene human tragedy.

            The records of these prolific traders in misery and human cruelty and degradation are available in some of the African ports from which these cargoes were shipped.

            ‘Isalm’ was not the saviour of slavery, but actually the harbinger of an institutionalised and systematized slave trade on a scale, not known before in world history.

            It is estimated, that for every slave sold and transported to the Americas alive, at least ten died on the way.

            This constitutes a colossal figure estimated at One Hundred and Forty Million black slaves, men, women and children, who died at the hands of the Muhammadan Muslim slave traders, en route to the sea ports.

            An act of genocide, unparallelled in human history.

            ‘Islam’ was not the saviour of the institution of slavery but the greatest enforcer of it. This continues even unto today in the Sudan & Eritrea for example.

            The historical record of the Arab conquests is replete with such cases as written by their historians such as al Masudi, al Athir, al Maqqari etc. The Caliphs as well as Muhammad himself had their own slaves.

            2:178…the free for the free and the slave for the slave…. 2:221…a man slave who believes is better…;

            4: 92 Never should a believer kill a believer; but (if it so happens) by mistake (compensation is due): if one (so) kills a believer it is ordained that he should free a believing slave and pay compensation to the deceased’s family unless they remit it freely. If the deceased belonged to a people at war with you and he was a believer the freeing of a believing slave (is enough). If he belonged to a people with whom ye have a treaty of mutual alliance compensation should be paid to his family and a believing slave be freed. For those who find this beyond their means (is prescribed) a fast for two months running: by way of repentance to Allah: for Allah hath all knowledge and all wisdom.

            One of the greatest propaganda victories in the history of the world is the fact, that the tragedy of black slavery was put on the shoulder of the Europeans while the Muhammadans got away with the blame.

            Tragically in the world to day, there is a total lack of knowledge among Black peoples and most of the world regarding the origins and merchandising of slaves to the Americas and other destinations at the hands of the unscrupulous and inhuman Muhammadan Arabs and their Black Muhammadan ‘brothers’.

            This racism is endemic and institutionalised all over the Muhammadan world. As this is being read, slavery is still continued in southern Sudan, Mali, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Uman etc.

            Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 3277 Narrated byAsh-Sharid ibn Suwayd ath-Thaqafi
            Sharid’s mother left a will to emancipate a believing slave on her behalf. So he came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said: Apostle of Allah, my mother left a will that I should emancipate a believing slave for her, and I have a black Nubian slave-girl. He mentioned a tradition about the test of the girl.

            *** Note the fact that even a believing (Muslim) was enslaved***

            Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 3901 Narrated byJabir ibn Abdullah
            There came a slave and pledged allegiance to Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) on migration; he (the Prophet) did not know that he was a slave. Then there came his master and demanded him back, whereupon Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) said: Sell him to me. And he bought him for two black slaves, and he did not afterwards take allegiance from anyone until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or a free man).

            Al-Muwatta Hadith Hadith 28.38a
            Prohibition against Marrying Slave-Girls of the People of the Book
            Malik said, “It is not halal to marry a christian or jewish slave-girl because Allah the Blessed, the Exalted, said in His Book, ‘Believing women who are muhsanat and women of those who were given the Book before you who are muhsanat’, (sura 5 ayat 6) and they are free women from the Christians and Jews. Allah, the Blessed, the Exalted, said in His Book, ‘If you are not affluent enough to marry believing women who are muhsanat, take believing slave-girls whom your right hands own.’ ” (Sura 4 ayat 24)
            Malik said, “In our opinion, Allah made marriage to believing slave-girls halal, and He did not make halal marriage to christian and jewish slave-girls from the People of the Book.”
            Malik said, “The christian and jewish slave-girl are halal for their master by right of possession, but intercourse with a magian slave-girl is not halal by the right of possession.”

            Al-Muwatta Hadith Hadith 44.2a
            Blood-Relatives Who are Permitted to Swear in the Intentional Act
            Yahya said that Malik said, “The way of doing things in our community about which there is no dispute is that women do not swear in the swearing for the intentional act. If the murdered man only has female relatives, the women have no right to swear for blood and no pardon in murder.”
            Yahya said that Malik said about a man who is murdered, “If the paternal relatives of the murdered man or his mawali say, ‘We swear and we demand our companion’s blood,’ that is their right.”
            Malik said, “If the women want to pardon him, they cannot do that. The paternal relatives and mawali are entitled to do that more than them because they are the ones who demand blood and swear for it.”
            Malik said, “If the paternal relatives or mawali pardon after they demand blood and the women refuse and say, ‘We will not abandon our right against the murderer of our companion,’ the women are more entitled to that because whoever takes retaliation is more entitled than the one who leaves it among the women and paternal relatives when the murder is established and killing obliged.”

            Malik said, “At least two claimants must swear in murder. The oaths are repeated by them until they swear fifty oaths, then they have the right to blood. That is how things are done in our community.”
            Malik said, “When people beat a man and he dies in their hands, they are all slain for him. If he dies after their beating, there is swearing. If there is swearing, it is only against one man and only he is slain. We have never known the swearing to be against more than one man.”

            Malik spoke about a slave who had his hand or foot broken and then the break mended . He said, “The one who injured him is not obliged to pay anything. If that break causes him loss or scar, the one who injured him must pay according to what he diminished of the value of the slave.”

            Malik said, “What is done in our community about retaliation between slaves is that it is like retaliation between freemen. The life of the slave-girl for the life of the slave, and her injury for his injury. When a slave intentionally kills a slave, the master of the murdered slave has a choice. If he wishes, he kills him, and if he wishes, he takes the blood-money. If he takes the blood-money, he takes the value of his slave. If the owner of the slave who killed wishes to give the value of the murdered slave, he does it. If he wishes, he surrenders his slave. If he surrenders him, he is not obliged to do anything other than that. When the owner of the murdered slave takes the slave who murdered and is satisifed with him, he must not kill him. All retaliations between slaves for cutting off of the hand and foot and such things are dealt with in the same way as in the murder.”

            Malik said about a muslim slave who injures a Jew or Christian, “If the master of the slave wishes to pay blood-money for him according to the injury, he does it. Or else he surrenders him and he is sold, and the Jew or Christian is given the blood-money of the injury or all the price of the slave if the blood-money is greater than his price. The Jew or Christian is not given a muslim slave.”

            Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 3916 Narrated byAbdullah ibn Amr ibn al-‘As
            The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: If any slave entered into an agreement to buy his freedom for one hundred uqiyahs and he pays them all but ten, he remains a slave (until he pays the remaining ten); and if a slave entered into an agreement to purchase his freedom for one hundred dinars, and he pays them all but ten dinars, he remains a slave (until he pays the remaining ten).

            Sunan of Abu-DawoodHadith 4957 Narrated byAbuHurayrah
            The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: None of you must say: “My slave” (abdi) and “My slave-woman” (amati), and a slave must not say: “My lord” (rabbi or rabbati). The master (of a slave) should say: “My young man” (fataya) and “My young woman” (fatati), and a slave should say “My master” (sayyidi) and “My mistress” (sayyidati), for you are all (Allah’s slave and the Lord is Allah, Most High.

            *** The institution of salvery of Africans among and by the Arabs was so prevalent, and on such a colossal scale, that the Arabic word for Slave is Abd which is the same word used to describe all Black Peoples, Abeed***

            Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 1.367 Narrated byAbdul Aziz
            Anas said, ‘When Allah’s Apostle invaded Khaibar, we offered the Fajr prayer there (early in the morning) when it was still dark. The Prophet rode and Abu Talha rode too and I was riding behind Abu Talha. The Prophet passed through the lane of Khaibar quickly and my knee was touching the thigh of the Prophet . He uncovered his thigh and I saw the whiteness of the thigh of the Prophet. When he entered the town, he said, ‘Allahu Akbar! Khaibar is ruined. Whenever we approach near a (hostile) nation (to fight) then evil will be the morning of those who have been warned.’ He repeated this thrice. The people came out for their jobs and some of them said, ‘Muhammad (has come).’ (Some of our companions added, “With his army.”)

            We conquered Khaibar, took the captives, and the booty was collected. Dihya came and said, ‘O Allah’s Prophet! Give me a slave girl from the captives.’ The Prophet said, ‘Go and take any slave girl.’ He took Safiya bint Huyai.

            A man came to the Prophet and said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! You gave Safiya bint Huyai to Dihya and she is the chief mistress of the tribes of Quraiza and An-Nadir and she befits none but you.’ So the Prophet said, ‘Bring him along with her.’ So Dihya came with her and when the Prophet saw her, he said to Dihya, ‘Take any slave girl other than her from the captives.’ Anas added: The Prophet then manumitted her and married her.”

            Thabit asked Anas, “O Abu Hamza! What did the Prophet pay her (as Mahr)?” He said, “Her self was her Mahr for he manumitted her and then married her.” Anas added, “While on the way, Um Sulaim dressed her for marriage (ceremony) and at night she sent her as a bride to the Prophet . So the Prophet was a bridegroom and he said, ‘Whoever has anything (food) should bring it.’ He spread out a leather sheet (for the food) and some brought dates and others cooking butter. (I think he (Anas) mentioned As-Sawaq). So they prepared a dish of Hais (a kind of meal). And that was Walima (the marriage banquet) of Allah’s Apostle .”

            *** Muhammad, who had just slaughtered almost all the males of her tribe, including her husband, father and other relatives, when he saw her beauty, he lusted for her so much that he took her away from Dihya to do with her as he pleased.

            Since in the Arabic language NIKAH can mean Marriage, RAPE and SEX, to allege that he married her is the usual Muhammadan pervertion of truth and facts. He RAPED her.

            Allah’s apostle never hesitated in bending his own rules, decisions and promises if the end result was suitable to his own lusts and desires. He even had a convenient ‘revelation’ justifying his right to marry the wife (Zainab) of (Zaid) his own adopted son.

            Nothing sacred or prophane could stop Muhammad from acquiring anything that he desired ***

            Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 2.579 Narrated byIbn Umar
            Allah’s Apostle enjoined the payment of one Sa’ of dates or one Sa’ of barley as Zakat-ul-Fitr on every Muslim slave or free, male or female, young or old, and he ordered that it be paid before the people went out to offer the ‘Id prayer. (One Sa’ = 3 Kilograms approx.)

            *** Muslim, SLAVE or Free***

            Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 3.351 Narrated byJabir bin Abdullah
            A man decided that a slave of his would be manumitted after his death and later on he was in need of money, so the Prophet took the slave and said, “Who will buy this slave from me?” Nu’aim bin ‘Abdullah bought him for such and such price and the Prophet gave him the slave.

            Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 3.693 Narrated byAbu Huraira
            The Prophet said, “Whoever frees a Muslim slave, Allah will save all the parts of his body from the (Hell) Fire as he has freed the body-parts of the slave.” Said bin Marjana said that he narrated that Hadith to ‘Ali bin Al-Husain and he freed his slave for whom ‘Abdullah bin Ja’far had offered him ten thousand Dirhams or one-thousand Dinars.

            *** The greatest tragedy of all is the fact that most black people around the world are IGNORANT of what was done to their peoples over the centuries by the followers of Muhammad.

          • Death for three men who gang-raped teen, poured acid on her and gouged out her eyes! (ndtv)

            Three men who gang-raped a 19-year-old girl in Delhi in February 2012, poured acid on her and later gouged out her eyes with a screwdriver have been sentenced to death by a city court.

            The teenager’s mutilated and decomposed body was found in a village in Haryana three days after she was kidnapped on her way home from her office in Gurgaon. Her body also bore cigarette burn marks.

            According to the prosecution, the convicts repeatedly raped and brutalized her for three days before she died. Two of the convicts were brothers. The prosecution said they had planned revenge on the girl, who had rejected their advances.

            The Delhi Police had asked for the death sentence for the rapists saying their crime was in the rarest of rare category. The prosecution also told the court that the convicts had not shown any remorse during the trial. The trio was convicted on Thursday.

            The girl, who worked as a data entry operator in Gurgaon, was kidnapped by the three men near her house in Qutub Vihar area of Delhi. She was allegedly raped and tortured till she died on February 9, 2012.

      • Today is another Saturday to impart knowledge to my friends with whom I have been locking horns for NO reasons!(1)

        Be SHARP !

        Should you believe in everything that you read, listen or see on the face-value??
        Ask yourself, as judges do, how much of it is FACTUAL. Set an inquisitive mental approach before absorbing stories. Discard the crap.

        For example, do not allow yourself to be hood-winked by the street preachers. The place they belong to is a church or mosque. What are they doing on the streets???
        Always look through the sharp angle for the facts.

        Be sharp!

        • Today is another Saturday to impart knowledge to my friends with whom I have been locking horns for NO reasons!(2)

          Why t r u s t ANYONE 100%?

          • Nobody is perfect.

          • Mistakes are bound to happen and mishaps to occur.

          • To avoid unforeseen agony later, do NOT trust 100% anyone, in the first place.

          • Instead, use logic. Be methodical.

          • If you want to get HURT then base your judgement on trust!

          Why t r u s t ANYONE 100%?

          • Today is another Saturday to impart knowledge to my friends with whom I have been locking horns for NO reasons!(3)

            No false hope.

            When you are unable to afford giving any material help then say so immediately, politely.

            But NEVER give false hope to anyone!
