Tweet that insulted Prophet Muhammad lands man in Kuwait prison


[By The Associated Press] A rights activist in Kuwait says a Twitter user has been sentenced to five years in prison after being convicted of insulting the Prophet Muhammad.Tweeter_logo

The court decision Monday is the latest among Gulf Arab nations in a widening crackdown on political commentary and other forms of expressions on social media.

Musaab Shamsah was arrested following a Twitter post he allegedly made in May that made references to the descendants of Islam’s prophet. Activist Nawaf al-Hendal says Shamsah plans to appeal.

The post, since taken down, could be taken as endorsing Shiite beliefs.

Sunni-majority Kuwait has been among the most aggressive Gulf states in clamping down on perceived offenses on the Internet.

In Saudi Arabia, three lawyers are facing trial over social media posts allegedly criticizing authorities.

  1. Lucky bin Ding ding dong, So once more you think you have done talala to Islam?

    Kaaba is NOT worshipped by the Muslims. Whenever the Kaaba is opened, people enter in it and pray in any direction. Kaaba is the centre of focus and an object of direction. This shows Islam is a religion which certainly IS NOT like a lost ship on the turbulent waters which is rocked by wither way waves but based on a Focal Point, which establishes a sense of direction.

    Kaaba is a mere construction which in the beginning was Rectangular, later changed to Cube shape and undergone various changes in colour, height, shape, …!!!!

    Even the pagans NEVER worshipped it! It was the Idols inside that were worshipped!

    Kaaba is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL site in the world!

    Lucky…I think you ARE MISSING Something…IT IS just SPLENDID!! At the least once in YOUR LIFETIME, even if it is through your pseudo transformations of Raj, make sure YOU visit it ONCE in your lifetime!!

  2. ASK ANY MUSLIM WHAT QURAN, SURA 66 MEANS?

    99% WON’T KNOW!

    HERE IS THE ANSWER!

    SPREAD THE WORD:

    THE SEX SLAVE OF MUHAMMAD

    Mariyah al Qibtiyya aka Maria Qupthiya aka Maria the Copt was an Egyptian Coptic Christian woman who was sent as a gift from Muqawqis, a Byzantine official to the Prophet Muhammad. Maria had become one of Muhammad’s Concubines in addition to his wives.

    The following is Muhammad’s scandalous love affair with Maria the Copt who was one of the prophet’s wives’ maids. Muhammad had sex with her without any ceremony, which caused uproar among his wives and had to be settled through the “Divine Intervention.”

    This story is recorded in an authenticated Hadith and is reported by Umar.

    This Hadith is describing the reason for the revelation of the quranic verse 66: 4.

    “If ye two turn in repentance to Him, your hearts are indeed so inclined; But if ye back up each other against him, truly Allah is his Protector, and Gabriel, and (every) righteous one among those who believe,- and furthermore, the angels – will back (him) up”.

    Umar explains that these two women were Hafsa and Aisha who became disrespectful of the prophet causing him grief until he thought of divorcing all of his wives.

    These are the facts that reveal the sexual scandal of the prophet.

    One-day Muhammad goes to the house of his wife, Hafsa daughter of Umar and finds her maid Maria attractive. He decides to get rid of Hafsa so he can be alone with Maria. He lies to her saying her father Umar has called for her. When Hafsa leaves, Muhammad takes Maria to bed and has sexual intercourse with her. Resisting for Maria would have been unthinkable. She was a slave girl away from her family and Muhammad was the law in that town. So technically, Muhammad raped Maria.

    Meanwhile, Hafsa who had found out that her father had not send for her and was not expecting her returns home sooner than expected and to her chagrin finds her illustrious husband in bed with her maid.

    She becomes hysterical and forgetting the station of the prophet she shouts and causes a scandal. The prophet pleads with her to calm down and promises not to have sex with Maria again. He begs her also not to divulge this secret to anyone else.

    However, Hafsa who was unable to control herself relays everything to her friend Aisha and the two teens confabulate with their other co-wives and cause the “Mercy of Allah of Earth” much anguish. The “Mercy of Allah” decides to punish all his wives and declares that he is not going to sleep with any one of them for one month. This is second level of punishment recommended in the Quran. The first level is admonishing them and the third level is corporal punishment. Quran. 4: 34.

    When a man decides to punish a wife with sexual deprivation he can satisfy himself with his other wives. But Muhammad’s anger had made him make the oath not to sleep with any of them for one month. That of course would have been too much hardship for the beloved messenger of God. God in his mercy came to the aid of his prophet and revealed the Surah Tahrim (Banning). In this Surah Allah rebukes his prophet for being so harsh to himself and for depriving himself from what he really likes, which has been made “lawful” for him, in order to please his wives.

    1. O Prophet! Why do you ban (for yourself) that which Allah has made lawful to you, seeking to please your wives? And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

    2. Allah has already ordained for you (O men), the dissolution of your oaths. And Allah is your Maula (Lord, or Master, or Protector, etc.) and He is the All-Knower, the All-Wise.

    3. And (remember) when the Prophet (SAW) disclosed a matter in confidence to one of his wives (Hafsa), so when she told it (to another i.e. ‘Aisha), and Allah made it known to him, he informed part thereof and left a part. Then when he told her (Hafsa) thereof, she said: “Who told you this?” He said: “The All-Knower, the All-Aware (Allah) has told me”.

    4. If you two (wives of the Prophet SAW, namely ‘Aisha and Hafsa turn in repentance to Allah, (it will be better for you), your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet SAW likes), but if you help one another against him (Muhammad SAW), then verily, Allah is his Maula (Lord, or Master, or Protector, etc.), and Jibrael (Gabriel), and the righteous among the believers, and furthermore, the angels are his helpers.

    5. It may be if he divorced you (all) that his Lord will give him instead of you, wives better than you, Muslims (who submit to Allah), believers, obedient to Allah, turning to Allah in repentance, worshipping Allah sincerely, fasting or emigrants (for Allah’s sake), previously married and virgins. (Quran. 66:1-5)

    Although Muhammad gave his word to Hafsa not to have sex with her maid he could not resist the temptation. He had savored the sweetness of her forbidden fruit and had to have his fill. This became more urgent since he had taken another oath not to sleep with all of his wives. How could the “Best of creation” not have sex for one whole month?
    This was a difficult situation and no one but Allah could help him. Well, nothing is impossible when Allah is right in your pants. Leave everything in the hands of your “almighty” friend and let him take care of it.

    That is exactly what happened. Allah himself intervened and gave his prophet the green light to follow his heart’s desire. In the sura Tahrim Allah licenses his beloved prophet to have his flings with Maria and not pay attention to his wives. What can a prophet ask more? Allah was so concerned about Muhammad’s sexual pleasures that he even allowed ALL MEN to break their oaths as “a bounty.” Alhamdulillah! Subhanallah. Isn’t Allah great?

    It is also worthy of mention that Muhammad who came to know Hafsa had revealed his secret to Aisha, lied again and said that it was Allah who informed him (verse 3) whereas it was Aisha who told him. But of course Muhammad is not the author of the Quran. It is Allah himself who is lying for his prophet.

    In this sura Muhammad portrays the maker of the universe as a PIMP, A GOSSIP & A LIAR – all that to cover up his own depravity and adultery.

    In reaction to the above verses, Aisha, who was not only young and pretty, but also clever, is reported to have said to Muhammad,

    “Your God indeed rushes in coming to your aid!”

    The above story must have been also embarrassing for Muhammad’s followers even when they gobbled mindlessly everything he told them. To conceal his lewdness they made up other hadiths to explain away those verses of the Quran that were already explained by Umar.

    Muslim 9: 3496
    ‘Aisha (Allah be pleased with her) narrated that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) used to spend time with Zainab daughter of Jahsh and drank honey at her house. She (‘Aisha further) said: I and Hafsa agreed that one whom Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) would visit first should say: I notice that you have an odor of the Maghafir (gum of mimosa). He (the Holy Prophet) visited one of them and she said to him like this, whereupon he said: I have taken honey in the house of Zainab bint Jabsh and I will never do it again. It was at this (that the following verse was revealed): ‘Why do you hold to be forbidden what Allah has made lawful for you… (up to). If you both (‘Aisha and Hafsa) turn to Allah” up to:” And when the Holy Prophet confided an information to one of his wives” (lxvi. 3). This refers to his saying: But I have taken honey.

    The existence of the above Hadith and its difference with the one narrated by Umar reveals yet another fact that the companions of Muhammad were willing to lie, (as Muslims are today) to save the image of their prophet from blemish. It would be foolish to accept the story of drinking honey to justify the sura Tahrim. Honey does not smell bad. But above all it is inconceivable that a trivial incident like drinking honey could cause such an upheaval in the household of Muhammad to the extent that he decides to divorce all of his wives or to punish them for one month by not sleeping with them. Could such an insignificant incident like drinking honey provoke so much uproar that would require the intervention of Allah with a warning to Muhammad’s wives that he would divorce all of them and He (Allah) would give him virgin and faithful wives? This explanation is absurd unless honey is a code name for what Muhammad drank from between the legs of Maria.

    Several Muslims have claimed that the Hadiths quoted above narrated by Abdullah bin ‘Abbas are false and the correct version is the one about honey. This is nonsense. This hadith is recorded by both Bukhari and by Muslim. Furthermore it is the only logical explanation of the sha’ne nozool (context) of the Sura Tharim. According to Muslim scholar Asif Iftikhar “a Hadith can be regarded as a source of religious guidance only `if the basis of that Hadith exists in the Quran or the Sunnah or the established principles.”

    The Quran allows having sex with the “right hand possessions” i.e. slaves (Quran. 4:24) and it was Muhammad’s habit to have sex with his slave women. The text of the Sura makes it also clear that it is about having sex and not eating honey, which is a silly explanation. Asif Iftikhar writes, “Imam Ibni Ali Jauzee is reported to have said: ”If you find a Hadith against the dictates of common sense or contrary to a universal rule, consider it a fabrication.”

    The story of honey is ludicrous and makes no sense. Why so much ado about honey? And which honey smells bad? In fact it honey is mildly fragrant. This hadith has been forged because obviously even in those early days, Muslims felt embarrassed about the actions of their prophet. However, the hadiths about Muhammad lying to Hafsa to get rid of her so he could have sex with Maria makes perfect sense. It is in accordance with the Quran and in conformity with Muhammad’s depravity of conduct. It was not unusual for Muhammad to solicit sex from women whom he found attractive.

    This story is also reported by Ibn Sa’d in Tabaqat:

    Waqidi has informed us that Abu Bakr has narrated that the messenger of Allah (PBUH) had sexual intercourse with Maria in the house of Hafsa. When the messenger came out of the house, Hafsa was sitting at the gate (behind the locked door). She told the prophet, O Messenger of Allah, do you do this in my house and during my turn? The messenger said, control yourself and let me go because I make her Haraam to me. Hafsa said, I do not accept, unless you swear for me. That Hazrat (his holiness) said, by Allah I will not contact her again. Qasim ibn Muhammad has said that this promise of the Prophet that had forbidden Maria to himself is invalid – it does not become a violation (hormat).
    [Tabaqat v. 8 p. 223 Publisher Entesharat-e Farhang va Andisheh Tehran1382 solar h (2003) Translator Dr. Mohammad Mahdavi Damghani]

    Qasim ibn Muhammad of course tries to find justification for Muhammad’s breach of his own promise. If his words had no validity why he gave them and if they were valid why he broke them?
    My copy of the Quran contains the following tafseer side by side with the Sura Tahrim.
    Also it is reported that the Prophet had divided his days among his wives. And when it was the turn of Hafsa, he sent her for an errand to the house of her father Umar Khattab. When she took this order and went, the prophet called his slave girl Maria the Copt who bore his son Ibrahim, and who was a gift from the king Najashi and had sexual intercourse with her. When Hafsa returned, she found the door locked. So she sat there behind that locked door until the prophet finished the business and came out of the house while pleasure [?] was dripping from his face. When Hafsa found him in that condition she rebuked him saying

    “You did not respect my honor; you sent me out of my house with an excuse so you could sleep with the slave girl. And in the day that was my turn you had intercourse with someone else”.

    Then the Prophet said, be quiet for although she is my slave and Halaal to me, for your contentment I at this moment make her Haraam to myself. But Hafsa did not do this and when the Prophet went out of her house she knocked at the wall that separated her room from that of Aisha and told her everything. She also gave the glad tiding about what the Prophet had promised about making Maria Haraam to himself.

    [Published by Entesharat-e Elmiyyeh Eslami Tehran 1377 lunar H. Tafseer and translation into Farsi by Mohammad Kazem Mo’refi]

    Maria was a white Coptic young woman and very beautiful. She bore Ibrahim to Muhammad. I had my doubt about Ibrahim being Muhammad’s son. As per my research, Muhammad, during the last years of his life was suffering from acromegaly. One side-effect of this degenerative disease is impotence. He had erectile dysfunction.

    Note:

    Muhammad had six children with Khadijah who was already forty years old when she married him, but he had no children with more than twenty young women with whom he had sex in the last ten years of his life.

    There are hadiths that show he actually did not have intercourse with his wives, but “fondled” them, and often he would go from one wife to another in one night touching them and playing with them, “drinking their honey,” but not having intercourse.

    Another hadith says the Prophet used to “imagine having sex” when in reality he did not.

    Bukhari Vol. 7: 71:660:
    Narrated Aisha:

    “Magic was worked on Allah’s Apostle so that he used to think that he had sexual relations with his wives while he actually had not .”

    Aisha has also said “none of you have the self control of the Prophet for he could fondle his wives but not have intercourse”. The young and inexperienced woman did not realize that her illustrious husband was not controlling himself; he simply could not do it. Viagra had not yet been invented.

    However, there was a hole in my theory.

    If Muhammad was impotent how could he sire Ibrahim? I suspected that the child could have belonged to someone else, but had no evidence to prove it. I finally got the evidence. The same Tabaqat, when talking about Maria says that there was a Coptic man in Medina (the person who accompanied her from Egypt to Medina) who used to visit Maria and rumor circulated that he was her lover.

    After the brawl with his wives, Muhammad relocated Maria to a garden to the North of Medina. There he could visit her without being accosted by his wives. This situation provided ample opportunity for Maria’s lover to sneak in her house without being noticed. But someone must have seen him entering Maria’s house and the rumor reached Muhammad who sent Ali to kill the Coptic man. The story says that the man exposed himself and Ali upon seeing he was a eunuch spared his life.

    Apparently, this was a convenient alibi to silence the crowd. Also Aisha was accused of having an affair with Safwan a young man living in Medina. Later she claimed that Safwan was a eunuch. This affair caused also a huge scandal which vexed Muhammad for over a month until Allah had to intervene and testify on behalf of Aisha. So how come no one knows that Safwan was a eunuch?

    The story is clearly forged. How could this Coptic man know why Ali wanted to kill him for him to show his male organ (or lack of it) as soon as he saw Ali? Ibn Sa’d, the author of Tabaqat says, he saw Ali with his sword in his hand and climbed a date tree with fear and from there he exposed his private parts (awrat). No conversation is exchanged. The man simply knew why Ali is coming towards him and that he wants to kill him. This does not sound a true story. Why would a messenger of God want to kill an innocent man and how did this man know why Ali wants to kill him? Looks like this Coptic man had a better understanding of the unknown than the prophet of Allah.

    Bukhari 2.018.153 Says that
    “The sun eclipsed in the life-time of Allah’s Apostle on the day when (his son) Ibrahim died. So the people said that the sun had eclipsed because of the death of Ibrahim. Allah’s Apostle said, “The sun and the moon do not eclipse because of the death or life (i.e. birth) of some-one. When you see the eclipse, pray and invoke Allah.”

    Bukhari 2.018.154 adds,
    When the sun eclipsed he [Muhammad] led the people in prayer,… by then the sun (eclipse) had cleared. He delivered the Khutba (sermon) and after praising and glorifying Allah he said, “The sun and the moon are two signs against the signs of Allah; they do not eclipse on the death or life of anyone. So when you see the eclipse, remember Allah and say Takbir, pray and give Sadaqa.” The Prophet then said, “O followers of Muhammad! By Allah! There is none who has more ghaira (self-respect – honor) than Allah as He has forbidden that His slaves, male or female commit adultery (illegal sexual intercourse). O followers of Muhammad! By Allah! If you knew that which I know you would laugh little and weep much.

    Ghaira is the very thing for which Muslims commit honor killing. If you look at a Muslim’s wife or daughter, his ghaira (roughly translated as honor) is injured. If he does not react, it shows that he has little ghaira. The greater is his ghaira the more violent will be his reaction.

    The discussion about adultery at this occasion is quite revealing. Why would Muhammad talk about adultery, of all things, at the burial of his son? It’s not that hard to imagine that he was thinking about it and perhaps knew Ibrahim was not his son. In this sermon Muhammad talks about Allah having a lot of ghaira and then speaks of prohibition of adultery. He concludes by saying he knows of very sad things that others don’t know. Well, it took 1400 years, but I think we have finally discovered those “sad things.”
    Another point to bear in mind is that despite the fact the Maria was the only women who bore Muhammad a child, he did not marry her. Why would he not marry the mother of his only son?

    Bukhari 2.018.161 in another version of this hadith says.
    “Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Abbas:
    “The Prophet then said, “The sun and the moon are two of the signs of Allah. They eclipse neither because of the death of somebody nor because of his life (i.e. birth). So when you see them, remember Allah.” The people say, “O Allah’s Apostle! We saw you taking something from your place and then we saw you retreating.” The Prophet replied, “I saw Paradise and stretched my hands towards a bunch (of its fruits) and had I taken it, you would have eaten from it as long as the world remains. I also saw the Hell-fire and I had never seen such a horrible sight. I saw that most of the inhabitants were women.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! Why is it so?” The Prophet replied, “Because of their ungratefulness.” It was asked whether they are ungrateful to Allah. The Prophet said, ”They are ungrateful to their companions of life (husbands) and ungrateful to good deeds. If you are benevolent to one of them throughout the life and if she sees anything (undesirable) in you, she will say, ‘I have never had any good from you.’ “

    In the funeral of his only son Muhammad does not speak about him. The man who thought it is unfair to say God has only daughters when men can boast with having sons, has lost his only son, but on the day of his death he chooses to speak about adultery and the punishment awaiting women who are ungrateful to their husband. That is quite revealing.

    Bukhari Volume 3, Book 43, Number 648:
    Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas:
    I had been eager to ask ‘Umar about the two ladies from among the wives of the Prophet regarding whom Allah said (in the Qur’an saying): If you two (wives of the Prophet namely Aisha and Hafsa) turn in repentance to Allah your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet likes) (66.4), till performed the Hajj along with ‘Umar (and on our way back from Hajj) he went aside (to answer the call of nature) and I also went aside along with him carrying a tumbler of water. When he had answered the call of nature and returned. I poured water on his hands from the tumbler and he performed ablution. I said, “O Chief of the believers! ‘ Who were the two ladies from among the wives of the Prophet to whom Allah said:

    ‘If you two return in repentance (66.4)? He said, “I am astonished at your question, O Ibn ‘Abbas. They were Aisha and Hafsa.”

    Then ‘Umar went on relating the narration and said.

    “I and an Ansari neighbor of mine from Bani Umaiya bin Zaid who used to live in ‘Awali Al-Medina, used to visit the Prophet in turns. He used to go one day, and I another day. When I went I would bring him the news of what had happened that day regarding the instructions and orders and when he went, he used to do the same for me. We, the people of Quraish, used to have authority over women, but when we came to live with the Ansar, we noticed that the Ansari women had the upper hand over their men, so our women started acquiring the habits of the Ansari women. Once I shouted at my wife and she paid me back in my coin and I disliked that she should answer me back. She said, ‘Why do you take it ill that I retort upon you? By Allah, the wives of the Prophet retort upon him, and some of them may not speak with him for the whole day till night.’ What she said scared me and I said to her, ‘Whoever amongst them does so, will be a great loser.’ Then I dressed myself and went to Hafsa and asked her, ‘Does any of you keep Allah’s Apostle angry all the daylong till night?’ She replied in the affirmative. I said, ‘She is a ruined losing person (and will never have success)! Doesn’t she fear that Allah may get angry for the anger of Allah’s Apostle and thus she will be ruined? Don’t ask Allah’s Apostle too many things, and don’t retort upon him in any case, and don’t desert him. Demand from me whatever you like, and don’t be tempted to imitate your neighbor (i.e. ‘Aisha) in her behavior towards the Prophet), for she (i.e. Aisha) is more beautiful than you, and more beloved to Allah’s Apostle.

    In those days it was rumored that Ghassan, (a tribe living in Sham) was getting prepared their horses to invade us. My companion went (to the Prophet on the day of his turn, went and returned to us at night and knocked at my door violently, asking whether I was sleeping. I was scared (by the hard knocking) and came out to him. He said that a great thing had happened. I asked him: What is it? Have Ghassan come? He replied that it was worse and more serious than that, and added that Allah’s Apostle had divorced all his wives. I said, Hafsa is a ruined loser! I expected that would happen someday.’ So I dressed myself and offered the Fajr prayer with the Prophet. Then the Prophet entered an upper room and stayed there alone. I went to Hafsa and found her weeping. I asked her, ‘Why are you weeping? Didn’t I warn you? Have Allah’s Apostle divorced you all?’ She replied, ‘I don’t know. He is there in the upper room.’ I then went out and came to the pulpit and found a group of people around it and some of them were weeping. Then I sat with them for some time, but could not endure the situation. So I went to the upper room where the Prophet was and requested to a black slave of his:

    “Will you get the permission of (Allah’s Apostle) for Umar (to enter)? The slave went in, talked to the Prophet about it and came out saying, ‘I mentioned you to him but he did not reply.’ So, I went and sat with the people who were sitting by the pulpit, but I could not bear the situation, so I went to the slave again and said: “Will you get the permission for Umar? He went in and brought the same reply as before. When I was leaving, behold, the slave called me saying, “Allah’s Apostle has granted you permission.” So, I entered upon the Prophet and saw him lying on a mat without bedding on it, and the mat had left its mark on the body of the Prophet, and he was leaning on a leather pillow stuffed with palm fires. I greeted him and while still standing, I said: “Have you divorced your wives?’ He raised his eyes to me and replied in the negative. And then while still standing, I said chatting: “Will you heed what I say, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! We, the people of Quraish used to have the upper hand over our women (wives), and when we came to the people whose women had the upper hand over them…”

    ‘Umar told the whole story (about his wife). “On that the Prophet smiled.” ‘Umar further said, “I then said, ‘I went to Hafsa and said to her: Do not be tempted to imitate your companion (‘Aisha) for she is more beautiful than you and more beloved to the Prophet.’ The Prophet smiled again. When I saw him smiling, I sat down and cast a glance at the room, and by Allah, I couldn’t see anything of importance but three hides. I said (to Allah’s Apostle) “Invoke Allah to make your followers prosperous for the Persians and the Byzantines has been made prosperous and given worldly luxuries, though they do not worship Allah?’ The Prophet was leaning then (and on hearing my speech he sat straight) and said, ‘O Ibn Al-Khattab! Do you have any doubt (that the Hereafter is better than this world)? These people have been given rewards of their good deeds in this world only.’ I asked the Prophet. ‘Please ask Allah’s forgiveness for me. The Prophet did not go to his wives because of the secret which Hafsa had disclosed to ‘Aisha, and he said that he would not go to his wives for one month as he was angry with them when Allah admonished him (for his oath that he would not approach Maria). When twenty-nine days had passed, the Prophet went to Aisha first of all. She said to him, ‘You took an oath that you would not come to us for one month, and today only twenty-nine days have passed, as I have been counting them day by day.’ The Prophet said, ‘The month is also of twenty-nine days.’ That month consisted of twenty-nine days. ‘Aisha said, ‘When the Divine revelation of Choice was revealed, the Prophet started with me, saying to me, ‘I am telling you something, but you needn’t hurry to give the reply till you can consult your parents.” ‘Aisha knew that her parents would not advise her to part with the Prophet.

    The Prophet said that Allah had said:

    ‘O Prophet! Say To your wives; if you desire the life of this world and its glitter, … then come! I will make a provision for you and set you free in a handsome manner. But if you seek Allah and His Apostle, and The Home of the Hereafter, then Verily, Allah has prepared for the good-doers amongst you a great reward.’ (33.28) ‘Aisha said, ‘Am I to consult my parents about this? I indeed prefer Allah, His Apostle, and the Home of the Hereafter.’ After that the Prophet gave the choice to his other wives and they also gave the same reply as ‘Aisha did.”
    This hadith is reported also in Muslim 9.3511, and Bukhari 3.43.648, 7.62.119

    It is significant as it contains two important historic points. First it reveals, by Umar’s own admission, that “Ansari women had the upper hand over their men”. Even if we consider that to be an exaggeration, it is clear that women in Medina had more rights and authority than their Quraishy counterparts. Mecca, the home of the Quraish tribe, where Umar and Muhammad came from was a religious hub. People living in religious towns are more bigots than those living in other cities. Religion has always played a role in subjugating women and taking away their human rights. So it is natural that women in Mecca were more subdued than those living anywhere else in Arabia and especially Medina that was a more cosmopolitan city having civilized nations like Jews and Christians as its inhabitants. Umar’s and Muhammad’s wives came to like this emancipating atmosphere and wanted to exercise their relative freedom. This, did not sit well with the two misogynist men of Mecca, namely Umar and Muhammad, and as this Hadith demonstrates they were alarmed by their wives’ newfound liberties.

    The importance of this Hadith is in the fact that it proves women prior to Islam had much more freedom, which were taken away from them by Muhammad and his misogynistic successors. It becomes also clear that the deplorable status of women in Islam is not a divine verdict, but to a great extent a reflection of how women were treated in Mecca 1400 years ago.

    The fact that there is so much emphasis in the Quran and the hadith about the importance of women being obedient to their husbands is indeed an indication of Muhammad’s own desire to control his young and rebellious wives.

    • Lucky bin Ding ding dong, You think you have already scored the ding dong and now you think you may say talala to Islam?

      The verses :

      66:1 Pickthall: ‘O Prophet! Why bannest thou that which Allah hath made lawful for thee, seeking to please thy wives?
      66:2 Pickthall: Allah hath made lawful for you absolution from your oaths.

      66:3 When the Prophet confided a fact unto one of his wives and when she afterward divulged it and Allah apprised him thereof, he made known (to her) part thereof and passed over part. And when he told it her she said: Who hath told thee? He said: The Knower, the Aware hath told me.

      66:4 If ye two turn in repentance to Him, your hearts are indeed so inclined; But if ye back up each other against him, truly Allah is his Protector
      66:5 It may happen that his Lord, if he divorce you, will give him in your stead wives better than you, submissive (to Allah), believing, pious, penitent, devout, inclined to fasting, widows and maids.

      To begin with :
      All Hadiths are FAKE to Malign the Prophet as Bukhari, Muslim and other Persians, have purposely misinterpreted the above to “fetch” a fake story and depict that as the Prophet’s infidelity!! Forgetting the fake hadiths we have to read the Quran literally.

      Verses 66:1-5 : Do NOT mention anything about sex but Allah asks the Prophet, “why do you ban that Allah has made lawful for you? It does NOT talk of sex with Maria the coptic girl as your fake hadiths portray. This conversation was a private thing between the Prophet and two of his spouses, yet Allah made it known to depict the humble nature of the Prophet and how passionately the Prophet dealt with his wives!

      This shows the Prophet was a very humble and a respective person to his spouses. What the conversation was is immaterial as it was between the Prophet and his spouses.

      Absolution = Forgiveness

      Allah forgives the Prophet from whatever oaths he may have undertaken with his two wives, as he was His chosen Messenger and wasn’t any Tom, Dick or Harry believer. Allah shows He is a Protecting friend to His servant. The “Secret’ that the Prophet told to his wife ‘a part of it’ the other part he withheld shows the nasty habit of gossip that women are fond of!

      Isn’t that true?

      Allah warns all believing women NEVER to divulge any information that a husband confides, puts in her trust! Shouldn’t All women do that? So, the above verses show the inborn trend of women on gossip and that they should hold the secret told by the hubby.

      Allah tells the believing women to be humble and stick to the trust endowed to them by their husbands!

      Nothing about sex with the coptic girl, Maria!

      • PLUM IS DUMB, M&M IS DUMBER, BUT NOW PLUM IS DUMBEST!

        MO GOT CAUGHT WITH HIS PANTS DOWN, BANGING MIRIAM THE COPT SLAVE, ON HAFSA’S BED, ON HAFSA’S DAY!

        THE SEX SLAVE OF MUHAMMAD

        Mariyah al Qibtiyya aka Maria Qupthiya aka Maria the Copt was an Egyptian Coptic Christian woman who was sent as a gift from Muqawqis, a Byzantine official to the Prophet Muhammad. Maria had become one of Muhammad’s Concubines in addition to his wives.

        The following is Muhammad’s scandalous love affair with Maria the Copt who was one of the prophet’s wives’ maids. Muhammad had sex with her without any ceremony, which caused uproar among his wives and had to be settled through the “Divine Intervention.”

        This story is recorded in an authenticated Hadith and is reported by Umar.

        This Hadith is describing the reason for the revelation of the quranic verse 66: 4.

        “If ye two turn in repentance to Him, your hearts are indeed so inclined; But if ye back up each other against him, truly Allah is his Protector, and Gabriel, and (every) righteous one among those who believe,- and furthermore, the angels – will back (him) up”.

        Umar explains that these two women were Hafsa and Aisha who became disrespectful of the prophet causing him grief until he thought of divorcing all of his wives.

        These are the facts that reveal the sexual scandal of the prophet.

        One-day Muhammad goes to the house of his wife, Hafsa daughter of Umar and finds her maid Maria attractive. He decides to get rid of Hafsa so he can be alone with Maria. He lies to her saying her father Umar has called for her. When Hafsa leaves, Muhammad takes Maria to bed and has sexual intercourse with her. Resisting for Maria would have been unthinkable. She was a slave girl away from her family and Muhammad was the law in that town. So technically, Muhammad raped Maria.

        Meanwhile, Hafsa who had found out that her father had not send for her and was not expecting her returns home sooner than expected and to her chagrin finds her illustrious husband in bed with her maid.

        She becomes hysterical and forgetting the station of the prophet she shouts and causes a scandal. The prophet pleads with her to calm down and promises not to have sex with Maria again. He begs her also not to divulge this secret to anyone else.

        However, Hafsa who was unable to control herself relays everything to her friend Aisha and the two teens confabulate with their other co-wives and cause the “Mercy of Allah of Earth” much anguish. The “Mercy of Allah” decides to punish all his wives and declares that he is not going to sleep with any one of them for one month. This is second level of punishment recommended in the Quran. The first level is admonishing them and the third level is corporal punishment. Quran. 4: 34.

        When a man decides to punish a wife with sexual deprivation he can satisfy himself with his other wives. But Muhammad’s anger had made him make the oath not to sleep with any of them for one month. That of course would have been too much hardship for the beloved messenger of God. God in his mercy came to the aid of his prophet and revealed the Surah Tahrim (Banning). In this Surah Allah rebukes his prophet for being so harsh to himself and for depriving himself from what he really likes, which has been made “lawful” for him, in order to please his wives.

        1. O Prophet! Why do you ban (for yourself) that which Allah has made lawful to you, seeking to please your wives? And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

        2. Allah has already ordained for you (O men), the dissolution of your oaths. And Allah is your Maula (Lord, or Master, or Protector, etc.) and He is the All-Knower, the All-Wise.

        3. And (remember) when the Prophet (SAW) disclosed a matter in confidence to one of his wives (Hafsa), so when she told it (to another i.e. ‘Aisha), and Allah made it known to him, he informed part thereof and left a part. Then when he told her (Hafsa) thereof, she said: “Who told you this?” He said: “The All-Knower, the All-Aware (Allah) has told me”.

        4. If you two (wives of the Prophet SAW, namely ‘Aisha and Hafsa turn in repentance to Allah, (it will be better for you), your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet SAW likes), but if you help one another against him (Muhammad SAW), then verily, Allah is his Maula (Lord, or Master, or Protector, etc.), and Jibrael (Gabriel), and the righteous among the believers, and furthermore, the angels are his helpers.

        5. It may be if he divorced you (all) that his Lord will give him instead of you, wives better than you, Muslims (who submit to Allah), believers, obedient to Allah, turning to Allah in repentance, worshipping Allah sincerely, fasting or emigrants (for Allah’s sake), previously married and virgins. (Quran. 66:1-5)

        Although Muhammad gave his word to Hafsa not to have sex with her maid he could not resist the temptation. He had savored the sweetness of her forbidden fruit and had to have his fill. This became more urgent since he had taken another oath not to sleep with all of his wives. How could the “Best of creation” not have sex for one whole month?
        This was a difficult situation and no one but Allah could help him. Well, nothing is impossible when Allah is right in your pants. Leave everything in the hands of your “almighty” friend and let him take care of it.

        That is exactly what happened. Allah himself intervened and gave his prophet the green light to follow his heart’s desire. In the sura Tahrim Allah licenses his beloved prophet to have his flings with Maria and not pay attention to his wives. What can a prophet ask more? Allah was so concerned about Muhammad’s sexual pleasures that he even allowed ALL MEN to break their oaths as “a bounty.” Alhamdulillah! Subhanallah. Isn’t Allah great?

        It is also worthy of mention that Muhammad who came to know Hafsa had revealed his secret to Aisha, lied again and said that it was Allah who informed him (verse 3) whereas it was Aisha who told him. But of course Muhammad is not the author of the Quran. It is Allah himself who is lying for his prophet.

        In this sura Muhammad portrays the maker of the universe as a PIMP, A GOSSIP & A LIAR – all that to cover up his own depravity and adultery.

        In reaction to the above verses, Aisha, who was not only young and pretty, but also clever, is reported to have said to Muhammad,

        “Your God indeed rushes in coming to your aid!”

        The above story must have been also embarrassing for Muhammad’s followers even when they gobbled mindlessly everything he told them. To conceal his lewdness they made up other hadiths to explain away those verses of the Quran that were already explained by Umar.

        Muslim 9: 3496
        ‘Aisha (Allah be pleased with her) narrated that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) used to spend time with Zainab daughter of Jahsh and drank honey at her house. She (‘Aisha further) said: I and Hafsa agreed that one whom Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) would visit first should say: I notice that you have an odor of the Maghafir (gum of mimosa). He (the Holy Prophet) visited one of them and she said to him like this, whereupon he said: I have taken honey in the house of Zainab bint Jabsh and I will never do it again. It was at this (that the following verse was revealed): ‘Why do you hold to be forbidden what Allah has made lawful for you… (up to). If you both (‘Aisha and Hafsa) turn to Allah” up to:” And when the Holy Prophet confided an information to one of his wives” (lxvi. 3). This refers to his saying: But I have taken honey.

        The existence of the above Hadith and its difference with the one narrated by Umar reveals yet another fact that the companions of Muhammad were willing to lie, (as Muslims are today) to save the image of their prophet from blemish. It would be foolish to accept the story of drinking honey to justify the sura Tahrim. Honey does not smell bad. But above all it is inconceivable that a trivial incident like drinking honey could cause such an upheaval in the household of Muhammad to the extent that he decides to divorce all of his wives or to punish them for one month by not sleeping with them. Could such an insignificant incident like drinking honey provoke so much uproar that would require the intervention of Allah with a warning to Muhammad’s wives that he would divorce all of them and He (Allah) would give him virgin and faithful wives? This explanation is absurd unless honey is a code name for what Muhammad drank from between the legs of Maria.

        Several Muslims have claimed that the Hadiths quoted above narrated by Abdullah bin ‘Abbas are false and the correct version is the one about honey. This is nonsense. This hadith is recorded by both Bukhari and by Muslim. Furthermore it is the only logical explanation of the sha’ne nozool (context) of the Sura Tharim. According to Muslim scholar Asif Iftikhar “a Hadith can be regarded as a source of religious guidance only `if the basis of that Hadith exists in the Quran or the Sunnah or the established principles.”

        The Quran allows having sex with the “right hand possessions” i.e. slaves (Quran. 4:24) and it was Muhammad’s habit to have sex with his slave women. The text of the Sura makes it also clear that it is about having sex and not eating honey, which is a silly explanation. Asif Iftikhar writes, “Imam Ibni Ali Jauzee is reported to have said: ”If you find a Hadith against the dictates of common sense or contrary to a universal rule, consider it a fabrication.”

        The story of honey is ludicrous and makes no sense. Why so much ado about honey? And which honey smells bad? In fact it honey is mildly fragrant. This hadith has been forged because obviously even in those early days, Muslims felt embarrassed about the actions of their prophet. However, the hadiths about Muhammad lying to Hafsa to get rid of her so he could have sex with Maria makes perfect sense. It is in accordance with the Quran and in conformity with Muhammad’s depravity of conduct. It was not unusual for Muhammad to solicit sex from women whom he found attractive.

        This story is also reported by Ibn Sa’d in Tabaqat:

        Waqidi has informed us that Abu Bakr has narrated that the messenger of Allah (PBUH) had sexual intercourse with Maria in the house of Hafsa. When the messenger came out of the house, Hafsa was sitting at the gate (behind the locked door). She told the prophet, O Messenger of Allah, do you do this in my house and during my turn? The messenger said, control yourself and let me go because I make her Haraam to me. Hafsa said, I do not accept, unless you swear for me. That Hazrat (his holiness) said, by Allah I will not contact her again. Qasim ibn Muhammad has said that this promise of the Prophet that had forbidden Maria to himself is invalid – it does not become a violation (hormat).
        [Tabaqat v. 8 p. 223 Publisher Entesharat-e Farhang va Andisheh Tehran1382 solar h (2003) Translator Dr. Mohammad Mahdavi Damghani]

        Qasim ibn Muhammad of course tries to find justification for Muhammad’s breach of his own promise. If his words had no validity why he gave them and if they were valid why he broke them?
        My copy of the Quran contains the following tafseer side by side with the Sura Tahrim.
        Also it is reported that the Prophet had divided his days among his wives. And when it was the turn of Hafsa, he sent her for an errand to the house of her father Umar Khattab. When she took this order and went, the prophet called his slave girl Maria the Copt who bore his son Ibrahim, and who was a gift from the king Najashi and had sexual intercourse with her. When Hafsa returned, she found the door locked. So she sat there behind that locked door until the prophet finished the business and came out of the house while pleasure [?] was dripping from his face. When Hafsa found him in that condition she rebuked him saying

        “You did not respect my honor; you sent me out of my house with an excuse so you could sleep with the slave girl. And in the day that was my turn you had intercourse with someone else”.

        Then the Prophet said, be quiet for although she is my slave and Halaal to me, for your contentment I at this moment make her Haraam to myself. But Hafsa did not do this and when the Prophet went out of her house she knocked at the wall that separated her room from that of Aisha and told her everything. She also gave the glad tiding about what the Prophet had promised about making Maria Haraam to himself.

        [Published by Entesharat-e Elmiyyeh Eslami Tehran 1377 lunar H. Tafseer and translation into Farsi by Mohammad Kazem Mo’refi]

        Maria was a white Coptic young woman and very beautiful. She bore Ibrahim to Muhammad. I had my doubt about Ibrahim being Muhammad’s son. As per my research, Muhammad, during the last years of his life was suffering from acromegaly. One side-effect of this degenerative disease is impotence. He had erectile dysfunction.

        Note:

        Muhammad had six children with Khadijah who was already forty years old when she married him, but he had no children with more than twenty young women with whom he had sex in the last ten years of his life.

        There are hadiths that show he actually did not have intercourse with his wives, but “fondled” them, and often he would go from one wife to another in one night touching them and playing with them, “drinking their honey,” but not having intercourse.

        Another hadith says the Prophet used to “imagine having sex” when in reality he did not.

        Bukhari Vol. 7: 71:660:
        Narrated Aisha:

        “Magic was worked on Allah’s Apostle so that he used to think that he had sexual relations with his wives while he actually had not .”

        Aisha has also said “none of you have the self control of the Prophet for he could fondle his wives but not have intercourse”. The young and inexperienced woman did not realize that her illustrious husband was not controlling himself; he simply could not do it. Viagra had not yet been invented.

        However, there was a hole in my theory.

        If Muhammad was impotent how could he sire Ibrahim? I suspected that the child could have belonged to someone else, but had no evidence to prove it. I finally got the evidence. The same Tabaqat, when talking about Maria says that there was a Coptic man in Medina (the person who accompanied her from Egypt to Medina) who used to visit Maria and rumor circulated that he was her lover.

        After the brawl with his wives, Muhammad relocated Maria to a garden to the North of Medina. There he could visit her without being accosted by his wives. This situation provided ample opportunity for Maria’s lover to sneak in her house without being noticed. But someone must have seen him entering Maria’s house and the rumor reached Muhammad who sent Ali to kill the Coptic man. The story says that the man exposed himself and Ali upon seeing he was a eunuch spared his life.

        Apparently, this was a convenient alibi to silence the crowd. Also Aisha was accused of having an affair with Safwan a young man living in Medina. Later she claimed that Safwan was a eunuch. This affair caused also a huge scandal which vexed Muhammad for over a month until Allah had to intervene and testify on behalf of Aisha. So how come no one knows that Safwan was a eunuch?

        The story is clearly forged. How could this Coptic man know why Ali wanted to kill him for him to show his male organ (or lack of it) as soon as he saw Ali? Ibn Sa’d, the author of Tabaqat says, he saw Ali with his sword in his hand and climbed a date tree with fear and from there he exposed his private parts (awrat). No conversation is exchanged. The man simply knew why Ali is coming towards him and that he wants to kill him. This does not sound a true story. Why would a messenger of God want to kill an innocent man and how did this man know why Ali wants to kill him? Looks like this Coptic man had a better understanding of the unknown than the prophet of Allah.

        Bukhari 2.018.153 Says that
        “The sun eclipsed in the life-time of Allah’s Apostle on the day when (his son) Ibrahim died. So the people said that the sun had eclipsed because of the death of Ibrahim. Allah’s Apostle said, “The sun and the moon do not eclipse because of the death or life (i.e. birth) of some-one. When you see the eclipse, pray and invoke Allah.”

        Bukhari 2.018.154 adds,
        When the sun eclipsed he [Muhammad] led the people in prayer,… by then the sun (eclipse) had cleared. He delivered the Khutba (sermon) and after praising and glorifying Allah he said, “The sun and the moon are two signs against the signs of Allah; they do not eclipse on the death or life of anyone. So when you see the eclipse, remember Allah and say Takbir, pray and give Sadaqa.” The Prophet then said, “O followers of Muhammad! By Allah! There is none who has more ghaira (self-respect – honor) than Allah as He has forbidden that His slaves, male or female commit adultery (illegal sexual intercourse). O followers of Muhammad! By Allah! If you knew that which I know you would laugh little and weep much.

        Ghaira is the very thing for which Muslims commit honor killing. If you look at a Muslim’s wife or daughter, his ghaira (roughly translated as honor) is injured. If he does not react, it shows that he has little ghaira. The greater is his ghaira the more violent will be his reaction.

        The discussion about adultery at this occasion is quite revealing. Why would Muhammad talk about adultery, of all things, at the burial of his son? It’s not that hard to imagine that he was thinking about it and perhaps knew Ibrahim was not his son. In this sermon Muhammad talks about Allah having a lot of ghaira and then speaks of prohibition of adultery. He concludes by saying he knows of very sad things that others don’t know. Well, it took 1400 years, but I think we have finally discovered those “sad things.”
        Another point to bear in mind is that despite the fact the Maria was the only women who bore Muhammad a child, he did not marry her. Why would he not marry the mother of his only son?

        Bukhari 2.018.161 in another version of this hadith says.
        “Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Abbas:
        “The Prophet then said, “The sun and the moon are two of the signs of Allah. They eclipse neither because of the death of somebody nor because of his life (i.e. birth). So when you see them, remember Allah.” The people say, “O Allah’s Apostle! We saw you taking something from your place and then we saw you retreating.” The Prophet replied, “I saw Paradise and stretched my hands towards a bunch (of its fruits) and had I taken it, you would have eaten from it as long as the world remains. I also saw the Hell-fire and I had never seen such a horrible sight. I saw that most of the inhabitants were women.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! Why is it so?” The Prophet replied, “Because of their ungratefulness.” It was asked whether they are ungrateful to Allah. The Prophet said, ”They are ungrateful to their companions of life (husbands) and ungrateful to good deeds. If you are benevolent to one of them throughout the life and if she sees anything (undesirable) in you, she will say, ‘I have never had any good from you.’ “

        In the funeral of his only son Muhammad does not speak about him. The man who thought it is unfair to say God has only daughters when men can boast with having sons, has lost his only son, but on the day of his death he chooses to speak about adultery and the punishment awaiting women who are ungrateful to their husband. That is quite revealing.

        Bukhari Volume 3, Book 43, Number 648:
        Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas:
        I had been eager to ask ‘Umar about the two ladies from among the wives of the Prophet regarding whom Allah said (in the Qur’an saying): If you two (wives of the Prophet namely Aisha and Hafsa) turn in repentance to Allah your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet likes) (66.4), till performed the Hajj along with ‘Umar (and on our way back from Hajj) he went aside (to answer the call of nature) and I also went aside along with him carrying a tumbler of water. When he had answered the call of nature and returned. I poured water on his hands from the tumbler and he performed ablution. I said, “O Chief of the believers! ‘ Who were the two ladies from among the wives of the Prophet to whom Allah said:

        ‘If you two return in repentance (66.4)? He said, “I am astonished at your question, O Ibn ‘Abbas. They were Aisha and Hafsa.”

        Then ‘Umar went on relating the narration and said.

        “I and an Ansari neighbor of mine from Bani Umaiya bin Zaid who used to live in ‘Awali Al-Medina, used to visit the Prophet in turns. He used to go one day, and I another day. When I went I would bring him the news of what had happened that day regarding the instructions and orders and when he went, he used to do the same for me. We, the people of Quraish, used to have authority over women, but when we came to live with the Ansar, we noticed that the Ansari women had the upper hand over their men, so our women started acquiring the habits of the Ansari women. Once I shouted at my wife and she paid me back in my coin and I disliked that she should answer me back. She said, ‘Why do you take it ill that I retort upon you? By Allah, the wives of the Prophet retort upon him, and some of them may not speak with him for the whole day till night.’ What she said scared me and I said to her, ‘Whoever amongst them does so, will be a great loser.’ Then I dressed myself and went to Hafsa and asked her, ‘Does any of you keep Allah’s Apostle angry all the daylong till night?’ She replied in the affirmative. I said, ‘She is a ruined losing person (and will never have success)! Doesn’t she fear that Allah may get angry for the anger of Allah’s Apostle and thus she will be ruined? Don’t ask Allah’s Apostle too many things, and don’t retort upon him in any case, and don’t desert him. Demand from me whatever you like, and don’t be tempted to imitate your neighbor (i.e. ‘Aisha) in her behavior towards the Prophet), for she (i.e. Aisha) is more beautiful than you, and more beloved to Allah’s Apostle.

        In those days it was rumored that Ghassan, (a tribe living in Sham) was getting prepared their horses to invade us. My companion went (to the Prophet on the day of his turn, went and returned to us at night and knocked at my door violently, asking whether I was sleeping. I was scared (by the hard knocking) and came out to him. He said that a great thing had happened. I asked him: What is it? Have Ghassan come? He replied that it was worse and more serious than that, and added that Allah’s Apostle had divorced all his wives. I said, Hafsa is a ruined loser! I expected that would happen someday.’ So I dressed myself and offered the Fajr prayer with the Prophet. Then the Prophet entered an upper room and stayed there alone. I went to Hafsa and found her weeping. I asked her, ‘Why are you weeping? Didn’t I warn you? Have Allah’s Apostle divorced you all?’ She replied, ‘I don’t know. He is there in the upper room.’ I then went out and came to the pulpit and found a group of people around it and some of them were weeping. Then I sat with them for some time, but could not endure the situation. So I went to the upper room where the Prophet was and requested to a black slave of his:

        “Will you get the permission of (Allah’s Apostle) for Umar (to enter)? The slave went in, talked to the Prophet about it and came out saying, ‘I mentioned you to him but he did not reply.’ So, I went and sat with the people who were sitting by the pulpit, but I could not bear the situation, so I went to the slave again and said: “Will you get the permission for Umar? He went in and brought the same reply as before. When I was leaving, behold, the slave called me saying, “Allah’s Apostle has granted you permission.” So, I entered upon the Prophet and saw him lying on a mat without bedding on it, and the mat had left its mark on the body of the Prophet, and he was leaning on a leather pillow stuffed with palm fires. I greeted him and while still standing, I said: “Have you divorced your wives?’ He raised his eyes to me and replied in the negative. And then while still standing, I said chatting: “Will you heed what I say, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! We, the people of Quraish used to have the upper hand over our women (wives), and when we came to the people whose women had the upper hand over them…”

        ‘Umar told the whole story (about his wife). “On that the Prophet smiled.” ‘Umar further said, “I then said, ‘I went to Hafsa and said to her: Do not be tempted to imitate your companion (‘Aisha) for she is more beautiful than you and more beloved to the Prophet.’ The Prophet smiled again. When I saw him smiling, I sat down and cast a glance at the room, and by Allah, I couldn’t see anything of importance but three hides. I said (to Allah’s Apostle) “Invoke Allah to make your followers prosperous for the Persians and the Byzantines has been made prosperous and given worldly luxuries, though they do not worship Allah?’ The Prophet was leaning then (and on hearing my speech he sat straight) and said, ‘O Ibn Al-Khattab! Do you have any doubt (that the Hereafter is better than this world)? These people have been given rewards of their good deeds in this world only.’ I asked the Prophet. ‘Please ask Allah’s forgiveness for me. The Prophet did not go to his wives because of the secret which Hafsa had disclosed to ‘Aisha, and he said that he would not go to his wives for one month as he was angry with them when Allah admonished him (for his oath that he would not approach Maria). When twenty-nine days had passed, the Prophet went to Aisha first of all. She said to him, ‘You took an oath that you would not come to us for one month, and today only twenty-nine days have passed, as I have been counting them day by day.’ The Prophet said, ‘The month is also of twenty-nine days.’ That month consisted of twenty-nine days. ‘Aisha said, ‘When the Divine revelation of Choice was revealed, the Prophet started with me, saying to me, ‘I am telling you something, but you needn’t hurry to give the reply till you can consult your parents.” ‘Aisha knew that her parents would not advise her to part with the Prophet.

        The Prophet said that Allah had said:

        ‘O Prophet! Say To your wives; if you desire the life of this world and its glitter, … then come! I will make a provision for you and set you free in a handsome manner. But if you seek Allah and His Apostle, and The Home of the Hereafter, then Verily, Allah has prepared for the good-doers amongst you a great reward.’ (33.28) ‘Aisha said, ‘Am I to consult my parents about this? I indeed prefer Allah, His Apostle, and the Home of the Hereafter.’ After that the Prophet gave the choice to his other wives and they also gave the same reply as ‘Aisha did.”
        This hadith is reported also in Muslim 9.3511, and Bukhari 3.43.648, 7.62.119

        It is significant as it contains two important historic points. First it reveals, by Umar’s own admission, that “Ansari women had the upper hand over their men”. Even if we consider that to be an exaggeration, it is clear that women in Medina had more rights and authority than their Quraishy counterparts. Mecca, the home of the Quraish tribe, where Umar and Muhammad came from was a religious hub. People living in religious towns are more bigots than those living in other cities. Religion has always played a role in subjugating women and taking away their human rights. So it is natural that women in Mecca were more subdued than those living anywhere else in Arabia and especially Medina that was a more cosmopolitan city having civilized nations like Jews and Christians as its inhabitants. Umar’s and Muhammad’s wives came to like this emancipating atmosphere and wanted to exercise their relative freedom. This, did not sit well with the two misogynist men of Mecca, namely Umar and Muhammad, and as this Hadith demonstrates they were alarmed by their wives’ newfound liberties.

        The importance of this Hadith is in the fact that it proves women prior to Islam had much more freedom, which were taken away from them by Muhammad and his misogynistic successors. It becomes also clear that the deplorable status of women in Islam is not a divine verdict, but to a great extent a reflection of how women were treated in Mecca 1400 years ago.

        The fact that there is so much emphasis in the Quran and the hadith about the importance of women being obedient to their husbands is indeed an indication of Muhammad’s own desire to control his young and rebellious wives.

        • Lucky bin Ding ding dhongi,

          There is NO hadith that is “IMPORTANT” as ALL hadiths are stories and THEY are ALL FAKE!

          In one so called ‘authentic’ hadith, Umar PROHIBITS writing of ANY hadith and destroyed all the hadiths written at that time, then ask yourself : “Why would he narrate the same”?

          It was all a plot by the Persians Scholars of the likes of Bukhari and his cronies, to “Hijack” the religion of Islam by marring it with dust…an expertise they had “mastered”.

          Later on, the same thing happened to the Sufis of the Safavid Dynasty who had established the Twelver School of Theology and started Shiism in 1500’s. Today they are persecuted more in Iran and other parts of the world as well, than any other people and their “saintly” sites destroyed just like the Buddha Idols that were erased in Afghanistan!

          The story of the “Sex With Coptic Girl” is absolutely bogus as the Messenger was in charge of the Revelations and would have NEVER incriminated himself!

          Lucky/Raj, have you changed the format of the comments???

    • Lucky bin Ding ding dhongi,…have you ‘noticed’ your title changing to “dhongi”?

      The GOLDEN RULE verse exists in the Quran…in fact in more details :

      Quran 4:36 Pickthall: “And serve Allah. Ascribe no thing as partner unto Him. (Show) kindness unto parents, and unto near kindred, and orphans, and the needy, and unto the NEIGHBOUR who is of kin (unto you) and the neighbour who is NOT OF KIN, and the fellow-traveller and the wayfarer and (the slaves) whom your right hands possess. Lo! Allah loveth not such as are proud and boastful”.

      “Jesus” was a mere story character! And, Paul was a liar…he didn’t even know how Jesus died!

      “QURAN IS THE GREATEST LITERARY MASTERPIECE OF THE ARABIC LANGUAGE AND NO ONE TO THIS DAY HAS EVER BEEN ABLE TO EQUAL ITS PERFECTION”

      2:42 (P) : Confound not truth with falsehood, nor knowingly conceal the truth.

      Mr Robert Spencer, what will you do with your Master’s Degree in Catholic’s Religion when it is proven that “Jesus” tale is a fabrication?

      Ezekiel 23:3 : 3 And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their virginity.
      Let us say Ameen!

      54:17 Pickthall: And in truth We have made the Qur’an easy to remember; but is there any that remembereth?

      Jesus debunked!!
      1. ‘Jesus’ was a story character “created” in the Book “According to Mathews”. The author of that short book is unknown!! But it can be easily implied from his book that he was a Greek as was Paul and his cronies viz., Mark, Luke, Timothy, James and John!!
      2. How was this book, “Mathews”, compiled?…and information collected by who??
      3. Whoever the author, he managed to dupe the World!!!
      4. This anonymous guy copied verses from the Old Bible of the Jews, distorted many, even changed some. to “make” the prophecies be fulfilled. In fact, in some places he even forgot to mention which Prophet had spoken…of that Prophecy. Approximately, there are 300 instances copied from the Old Testament, which would take lots of space and so I shall quote only a few, okay?
      .
      5(a). The similarity with certain Old Testament passages is very profound.
      (b). According to “Mathews” and thus the Christians, every word can be taken as a Prophecy from the Old Testament
      6. He copied the genealogy list, the Virgin birth, casting out devil with finger of god,
      riding on two donkeys, etc.,… and all the “other” material from 22 books of the
      Old Testament.
      7. The author was a Jew hater and to establish that hate he created “Jesus”….and that his extreme hatred of the Jews is portrayed here, very clearly, when the Jews and not the Romans put him on the cross!!!
      8. Notably interesting is the fact that he does not quote from any of the apocrypha or Deuterocanonical books as found in the “Dead Sea Scrolls”!! Why were those books thrown out like the book of Barnabas?
      9. “New Testament writers have flouted the proper laws of hermeneutics, have been guilty of artificial and rabbinical exegesis, and thus have repeatedly distorted the meaning of the Old Testament passages which they quote”.(http://www.bible-researcher.com/nicole.html)
      10. Matthew and Luke give two contradictory genealogies for Joseph (Matthew 1:2-17 and Luke 3:23-38). They cannot even agree on who the father of Joseph was.
      11. Both the genealogies of Matthew and Luke show that Joseph was a direct descendant of King David. But if Joseph is not Jesus’ father, then Joseph’s genealogies are meaningless as far as Jesus is concerned.
      12. The apostle Paul says that Jesus “was born of the seed of David” (Romans 1:3). Here the word “seed” is literally in the Greek “sperma.”
      13. The contradiction : born of a virgin against seed from the line of David. Explain!
      14. “Genesis 3:15 says ‘And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed.’ So women can pass on ‘seed’. This is where he got the idea of making a virgin girl pregnant in the beginning of writing his book.
      15. He mentions four women in Jesus’s genealogies who were all adulteresses!
      A. Tamar – disguised herself as a harlot to seduce Judah, her father-in-law (copied from Genesis 38:12-19)
      B. Rahab – was a harlot who lived in the city of Jericho in Canaan (copied from Joshua 2:1).
      C. Ruth – at her mother-in-law Naomi’s request, she came secretly to where Boaz was sleeping and spent the night with him. Later Ruth and Boaz were married (copied from Ruth 3:1-14)
      D. Bathsheba – became pregnant by King David while she was still married to Uriah (copied from 2 Samuel 11:2-5).
      16. He mentioned these four, impregnated women, to purposely add just one more and that would not make any difference!! Then he copied from Isaiah 7 : 14 “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel”.
      17. Compare : In Luke, the angel tells Mary that her son will be great, he will be called
      the Son of the Most High and will rule on David’s throne forever. This clearly contradicts with Mark 3:20-21 that Jesus’ family tried to take custody of him because they thought he had lost his mind. And later, in Mark 6:4-6 Jesus complained that he received no honor among his own relatives and his own household. Explain!
      18. Mathew’s author misquotes : Micah (compare Micah 5:2 to Matthew 2:6).
      19. Refer to Isaiah 7:14. The young woman became a virgin only when the Hebrew word was mistranslated into Greek and also the name would be Immanuel and not Jesus. This name “Jesus” he got from Jesse, the father of David, distorted it to make a connection, of his story character, to David.
      20. Matthew says that Herod, in an attempt to kill the newborn Messiah, had all the male children two years old and under put to death in Bethlehem and its environs, and that this was in fulfilment of prophecy. Copied from Jeremiah 31:15. But the context of Jeremiah 31:15 makes it clear that the weeping is for the Israelites about to be taken into exile in Babylon, and has nothing to do with slaughtered children hundreds of years later.
      21.(Matthew 2:15) has Mary, Joseph and Jesus fleeing to Egypt to escape Herod, and says that the return of Jesus from Egypt was in fulfilment of prophecy . However, Matthew quotes only the second half of Hosea 11:1. The first half of the verse makes it very clear that the verse refers to God calling the Israelites out of Egypt in the exodus led by Moses, and has nothing to do with Jesus.
      22. The author of Mathews searched the Old Testament for passages (sometimes just phrases) that could be construed as messianic prophecies and then created or modified events to give life to his story character ‘Jesus” to fulfill those “prophecies.”
      23. And finally, he makes the biggest blunder and exposes his work and his character “Jesus”, when he mistook the “comma”(,) for an “and”(+).
      First Refer to where he misread Zechariah 9:9 which reads in part, “mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” Meaning ONE young male donkey. Now compare that to Matthew 21:1-7 Jesus riding on both animals at the same time, for verse 7 literally says, “on them he sat.”. Explain that, as Mathews 21:1-7 does NOT fulfil the Prophecy and that “Jesus” was a mere story character, who never lived in real life!

      Still some try very hard, even by quoting the Quran out of context or distorting verses as well as through misquotations yet the Quran stands unique and the Only best thing on morality can one find on this Earth!!!

    • Surj of 1936,

      You said : “Islam is a pi$$ful cult. period”

      I tell you to be careful that you do NOT drown in that piss of the Cult of over 1.8 billion people!!

      If they were to stand on Himalayas and pee then you would get another river called Surj, just like the Ganges which has become a human soup!

      In fact every Hindu will have to be baptised by its piss-water so that they would be cleansed from Idol worship.

      Idol worship IS fake as the idols do NOT have hearts!

      Imagine all those dumbasses worshipping those Idols which do NOT have any power and cannot lift even a finger. Why doesn’t Mama Laxmi help eradicate poverty or cure poor cancer patients? Sorry, she has gone away to Saturn with her diamonds, NEVER to return to the money greedy dudes who worshipped her ONLY for her gold and diamonds.

      She wanted to prove the greed of the Hindus and so set up a drama…as hindus are very fond of mytho fabs, a Sadhu who got dreams of buried gold! And all went digging!
      Mama Lakxshmi must have laughed her head off!

      Infact this Kali keeps looking menacingly threatening looking on every hindu that he/she would be gulped by her with sword in her hand, severed heads dangling, blood dripping and with a bowl to drink your blood!

      And yet you say : “Islam is a pi$$ful cult. period”

      • KAABA WORSHIP IS PAGAN!

        IT WAS ALWAYS PAGAN!

        MOHAMMEDANS DO TODAY WHAT THE PAGANS DID YESTERDAY!

        MOON WORSHIP!

        ITS ALL ABOUT THE MOON GOD!

        ITS SYMBOL IS ON ALL MOSQUES & MOHAMMEDAN FLAGS!
