Rape Sanctioned By Allah AKA Muhammad


Sunan Abu Dawud:  Abu Sa'id al-Khudri said: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) 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 (may peace be upon him) 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

4:24] ...Sunan Abu Dawud, Book V, Chapter 711, Number 2150


 Hands Must Be Cut Off For Theft

Volume 8, Book 81, Number 780:

Narrated 'Aisha: The Prophet said, "The hand should be cut off for stealing something that is worth a quarter of a Dinar or more."

The Quran says:

5:38 “Cut off the hands of thieves, whether they are male or female, as punishment for what they have done-a deterrent from God: God is almighty and wise.” 39 “But if anyone repents after his wrongdoing and makes amends, God will accept his repentance: God is most forgiving and merciful. (Haleem)”



Muhammad Ordered Feet And Hands Cut Off And Eyes Burnt Out, And Left To Suffer A Horrendous Death

From Sahih Bukhari, 1.234

Narrated Abu Qilaba: Anas said, "Some people of 'Ukl or 'Uraina tribe came to 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). So they went as directed and after they became healthy, they killed the shepherd of the Prophet and drove away all the camels. The news reached the Prophet early in the morning and he sent (men) in their pursuit and they were captured and brought at noon. He then ordered to cut their hands and feet (and it was done), and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron. They were put in 'Al-Harra' and when they asked for water, no water was given to them." Abu Qilaba said, "Those people committed theft and murder, became infidels after embracing Islam and fought against Allah and His Apostle."



Allah AKA Muhammad Approved


5.33 The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle 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 [Pickthall and Yusuf Ali have “exiled” rather than “imprisoned”]




Ishaq: 307 “The ‘Spoils of War’ Surah came down from Allah to His Prophet concerning the distribution of the booty when the Muslims showed their evil nature. Allah took it out of their hands and gave it to the Apostle.”


Bukhari V1B7N1331 “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 terrorizing my enemies. 2. The earth has been made for me. 3. Booty has been made lawful for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. 4. I have been given the right of intercession. 5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.’”


Allah AKA Muhammad: Mafia Chieftain of the Universe


Quran-8:1— “They ask thee concerning (things taken as) spoils of war (booty). Say: "(such) spoils are at the disposal of Allah and the Messenger: So fear Allah, and keep straight the relations between yourselves: Obey Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe."


Quran-8:41— “And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to Allah, - and to the Messenger, and to near relatives, orphans, the needy, and the wayfarer, - if ye do believe in Allah and in the revelation We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Testing, - the Day of the meeting of the two forces. For Allah hath power over all things.”

According to verse 8:41, a fifth share of the booty



Narrated Abu Huraira and Zaid bin Khalid Al-Juhani:

“A bedouin came and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Judge between us according to Allah's Laws." His opponent got up and said, "He is right. Judge between us according to Allah's Laws." The bedouin said, "My son was a laborer working for this man, and he committed illegal sexual intercourse with his wife. The people told me that my son should be stoned to death; so, in lieu of that, I paid a ransom of one hundred sheep and a slave girl to save my son. Then I asked the learned scholars who said, "Your son has to be lashed one-hundred lashes and has to be exiled for one year." The Prophet said, "No doubt I will judge between you according to Allah's Laws. The slave-girl and the sheep are to go back to you, and your son will get a hundred lashes and one year exile." He then addressed somebody, "O Unais! go to the wife of this (man) and stone her to death" So, Unais went and stoned her to death.”


Allah AKA Muhammad  Approves (The only reason stoning is not in the Quran is because when Muhammad was dying a billy goat came into his room and ate the stoning laws of Muhammad AKA Allah. Unfortunately Billy did not eat the entire Quran) 


24:2 “The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication, - flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by God, if ye believe in God and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment

Bukhari (62:137) - An account of women taken as slaves in battle by Muhammad's men after their husbands and fathers were killed.  The woman were raped with Muhammad's approval.


Bukhari (34:432) - Another account of females taken captive and raped with Muhammad's approval.  In this case it is evident that the Muslims intend on selling the women after raping them because they are concerned about devaluing their price by impregnating them.  Muhammad is asked about coitus interruptus.


Rape Sanctioned By Allah AKA Muhammad

The Qur'an says that the calf worshipped by the Israelites at mount Horeb was molded by a Samaritan (Sura 20:85-87, 95-97). Yet the term `Samaritan' was not coined until 722 B.C., which is several hundred years after the events recorded in Exodus.

Thus, the Samaritan people could not have existed during the life of Moses, and therefore, could not have been responsible for molding the calf.

It is interesting to notice that while Yusuf Ali attempts to change this word to "Samiri" and Pickthall to "As Samirii." Arberry in the English, and Kasimirski in the French both correctly translate it "Samaritan." Yusuf Ali, in his footnotes, "bends over backwards" to explain his choice by suggesting that the name could mean "Shemer," which denotes a stranger, or "Shomer," which means a watchman, the equivalent of "Samara" in Arabic, which he implies is close enough to the Samari he is looking for. But the Arabic simply does not give Ali the leeway to concoct other meanings for this word. 

To be consistent with the Arabic he should keep his translation consistent with the text, as Arberry and Kasimirski have done.

 A Plain Error and Contradiction in the Qur'an:

Who suffers loss if Muhammad was wrong?

In Sura 34:50, Muhammad is commanded to say the following:

Say: ‘If I go astray, I go astray only to my own loss; if I am guided, it is by what my Lord reveals to me. He is All-hearing, Ever-nigh.’ Arberry

Say: "If (even) I go astray, I shall stray only to my own loss. But if I remain guided, it is because of the Inspiration of my Lord to me. Truly, He is All­Hearer, Ever Near (to all things)." Hilali & Khan

The error in this verse should be obvious to anyone pondering this statement for a little bit. The issue here is not whether, objectively, Muhammad went astray or was guided; Muslims and non-Muslims will continue to disagree about that. This verse is logically wrong, independent of whether Muhammad was guided or not.

The Error

Who suffered and still suffers loss if Muhammad was wrong?

The first point is somewhat trivial. Muslims are commanded in the Qur'an to take Muhammad as their model, and therefore many Muslims imitate him in the smallest details of life. They dress like Muhammad, they use a miswak to brush their teeth like Muhammad did, etc. If Muhammad was wrong, then this would mean a life of unnecessary inconvenience for millions of Muslims.

There are, however, a lot of not so trivial aspects. If Muhammad's message and regulations were wrong, he has subjected millions of Muslim women to a life of misery (see the various articles on Women in Islam) without any reward in return! Moreover, not only those who followed Muhammad have lost, but millions of the so-called "unbelievers" have suffered because Muslims have either killed them for their lack of faith, or forced Muhammad's regulations on them and subjected them to live as second-class citizens (see the section on Non-Muslims under Islamic Rule).

Ironically, these people have suffered loss even if Muhammad had been a true prophet. Whether Muhammad was astray or guided, many lives have been destroyed by Muslim attacks on unbelievers, so that this statement is not only logically false, but false also in factual history.

Putting aside all the atrocities and suffering in this earthly life that resulted from Muhammad's teachings, the intention of this verse was certainly to make a statement about the loss suffered in eternity, i.e. whether people will be punished or rewarded in the Last Judgement based on their acceptance or rejection of God's message.

Under the assumption that Muhammad was a true messenger, those who were killed as unbelievers because they did not accept his message on the spot have lost not only their lives but also the opportunity to become convinced by the truth of Islam by having the time to study the message of Islam in-depth. [Had Islam restricted its method of expansion to peaceful proclamation and intellectual persuasion instead of using (also and much too quickly) violence and force, the situation would be vastly different.] As it is, these people have lost their lives on earth, and they will suffer eternal punishment because they died in rejection of God's message. Thus, many unbelievers will suffer eternal loss even if Muhammad was right. Though Muslims may argue that in the quranic view this may be justified, it is unquestionable that they did suffer temporal and eternal loss due to the violent nature of Islam.

If, on the other hand, the Bible is true and Muhammad was a false prophet then the number of those who suffer eternal loss increases vastly: (1) The unbelievers (idolaters, atheists, ...) who were killed for rightly rejecting Islam still lost their opportunity to hear, understand and accept the true message of God. (2) Millions and millions of Muslims who have rejected the authentic Gospel of Jesus based on Muhammad's message will be lost forever because they rejected the salvation from sin offered by God through Jesus' death on the Cross.

Thus, an enormous number of people will suffer both earthly and eternal loss if Muhammad was wrong, in stark contradiction to Sura 34:50.

After pondering these facts there can hardly be any doubt that Sura 34:50 is an objectively wrong statement. It is a plain error in the Qur'an.

Does God make errors? Would God inspire a statement as wrong as this one?

This verse exposes the very human nature of the Qur'an. It obviously did not come from God, but from Muhammad himself, and it can easily be explained why Muhammad would add such a statement into his revelation. If time permits, I may later write an appendix to this article dealing with the psychological aspect of this error.

Finally, there is one more crucial observation to be made in this section. Simply looking at how Muhammad dealt with those who propagated a different message than Islam, or voiced critique of Islam (cf. these articles), exposes that Muhammad did not even believe this statement himself. In particular, Muhammad's instruction is: Whoever leaves Islam, kill him (e.g. Sahih Al-Bukhari 4.260; for detailed discussions on the issue of apostasy in Islam consult the links at the bottom of this page). Obviously, Muhammad considered apostasy, and publically speaking of a belief other than Islam such a grave danger to the Islamic community that the harshest possible measures had to be instituted against it. Nowhere in an Islamic society is open preaching of another religion permitted. Why not, if those who do so will "only go astray to their own loss"? The laws in the Shariah, and the reactions of Muslims towards those who want to publically invite (Muslims) to another faith prove that they do not believe Sura 34:50 to be true.

The Contradiction

Yet, there is more. Sura 34:50 is not only a factual error (i.e. contradicting objective reality) as outlined above, it is also part of an internal contradiction in the Qur'an which will be the topic for the remainder of this article.

Though the statement "If I go astray, I go astray only to my own loss" is hypothetical (i.e. the assumption is that Muhammad is not astray but on the right path), it stands in obvious tension to a multitude of verses in the Qur'an that demand that believers should obey and follow the messenger (Muhammad), i.e. Muhammad's words and example are supposed to directly impact those who believe in Allah. Some examples:

Say: Obey Allah and the messenger. But if they turn away, lo! Allah loveth not the disbelievers (in His guidance). S. 3:32 Pickthall

And obey Allah and the messenger, that ye may find mercy. S. 3:132 Pickthall

These are the limits (imposed by) Allah. Whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow, where such will dwell for ever. That will be the great success. S. 4:13 Pickthall

They ask thee (O Muhammad) of the spoils of war. Say: The spoils of war belong to Allah and the messenger, so keep your duty to Allah, and adjust the matter of your difference, and obey Allah and His messenger, if ye are (true) believers. S. 8:1 Pickthall

It is not for any believer, man or woman, when God and His Messenger have decreed a matter, to have the choice in the affair. Whosoever disobeys God and His Messenger has gone astray into manifest error. S. 33:36 Arberry

O believers, obey God, and obey the Messenger, and do not make your own works vain. S. 47:33 Arberry

There is no blame for the blind, nor is there blame for the lame, nor is there blame for the sick (that they go not forth to war). And whoso obeyeth Allah and His messenger, He will make him enter Gardens underneath which rivers flow; and whoso turneth back, him will He punish with a painful doom. S. 48:17 Pickthall

Whoso obeyeth the messenger hath obeyed Allah, ... S. 4:80 Pickthall

Establish worship and pay the poor-due and obey the messenger, that haply ye may find mercy. S. 24:56 Pickthall

Those who swear fealty to thee [Muhammad] swear fealty in truth to God; God's hand is over their hands. Then whosoever breaks his oath breaks it but to his own hurt; and whoso fulfils his covenant made with God, God will give him a mighty wage. S. 48:10 Arberry

Whatsoever spoils of war God has given to His Messenger from the people of the cities belongs to God, and His Messenger, and the near kinsman, orphans, the needy and the traveller, so that it be not a thing taken in turns among the rich of you. Whatever the Messenger gives you, take; whatever he forbids you, give over. And fear God; surely God is terrible in retribution. S. 59:7 Arberry

And there are many more like these, see S. 4:59, 69; 5:92; 8:20, 24, 46; 9:71; 24:51-52, 54; 33:33, 71; 49:14; 58:13; 64:12, etc.

The Qur'an does not only make it mandatory to obey Muhammad's explicit commands (whether they are verses found in the Qur'an or Muhammad's own words, see S. 24:45, 57:9), it makes everything Muhammad does and says the standard to emulate:

Your Companion is neither astray nor being misled. Nor does he say (aught) of (his own) desire. It is no less than inspiration sent down to him: He was taught by one Mighty in Power, ... S. 53:2-5 Yusuf Ali

And verily, you (O Muhammad) are on an exalted standard of character. S. 68:4 Hilali & Khan

Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much. S. 33:21 Hilali & Khan

Based on verses like these, Muhammad is considered the perfect and divinely endorsed role model, and he is followed in the minutest details of life. To claim, therefore, that if he goes astray it will still not result in any harm to those who follow him in everything (S. 34:50), is hardly coherent.

As stated above, these verses do not yet posit a clear-cut contradiction to S. 34:50, but they are in considerable tension. The plain contradiction arises when we add the following verses into the equation:

And those who disbelieve say to those who believe: Follow our path and we will bear your wrongs. And never shall they be the bearers of any of their wrongs; most surely they are liars. S. 29:12 Shakir

That they may bear their burdens entirely on the day of resurrection and also of the burdens of those whom they lead astray without knowledge; now surely evil is what they bear. S. 16:25 Shakir

These verses make it clear that "following those who lead you astray" does not absolve you from your own responsibility. On Judgement Day, those leaders will not bear the punishment (burden) for your going astray. Nobody will be able to excuse himself completely with "but I only followed this or that false prophet or teacher". S. 16:25 seems to indicate that some part of the burdens of those who were led astray may be put on the one who had misled them, but it still shows that the remainder has to be shouldered by the person who followed the false prophet into transgression and disobedience to God. Thus, those who lead astray cause their followers to suffer divine punishment and eternal loss.

Therefore, Sura 34:50 ("If I go astray, I go astray only to my own loss"), together with the many verses that command believers to follow and obey Muhammad, strongly and obviously contradicts Sura 16:25 and 29:12.

[ Side remark: This is not a trivial contradiction of whether Allah's day equals 1000 or 50000 years, or whether Allah created the universe in six or eight days. This is a contradiction at the very core of the religion, i.e. what happens to those who follow a false prophet! ]

Suras 16:25 and 29:12 also play a significant role in a somewhat different but closely related contradiction which is discussed in the article Who Suffers the Consequence of Sins according to the Qur'an? Another relevant detail in the formulation of 16:25 is examined in Who are those "without knowledge"?

There are a considerable number of additional verses which state that those who follow others who are astray (the reference is usually to the ancestors) are not therefore excused as being only victims, but are condemned by Allah for following them into falshood:

When it is said to them: "Follow what God hath revealed:" They say: "Nay! we shall follow the ways of our fathers." What! even though their fathers were void of wisdom and guidance? S. 2:170; cf. 5:104

They said: "Comest thou to us, that we may worship God alone, and give up the cult of our fathers? bring us what thou threatenest us with, if so be that thou tellest the truth!" He said: "Punishment and wrath have already come upon you from your Lord: dispute ye with me over names which ye have devised - ye and your fathers, - without authority from God? then wait: I am amongst you, also waiting." S. 7:70-71

And when they commit an indecency they say: We found our fathers doing this, and Allah has enjoined it on us. Say: Surely Allah does not enjoin indecency; do you say against Allah what you do not know? S. 7:28

So be not thou in doubt concerning that which these (folk) worship. They worship only as their fathers worshipped aforetime. Lo! we shall pay them their whole due unabated. S. 11:109

We bestowed aforetime on Abraham his rectitude of conduct, and well were We acquainted with him. Behold! he said to his father and his people, "What are these images, to which ye are (so assiduously) devoted?" They said, "We found our fathers worshipping them." He said, "Indeed ye have been in manifest error - ye and your fathers." S. 21:51-54

Lo! We have appointed it a torment for wrong-doers. Lo! it is a tree that springeth in the heart of hell. Its crop is as it were the heads of devils And lo! they verily must eat thereof, and fill (their) bellies therewith. And afterward, lo! thereupon they have a drink of boiling water. And afterward, lo! their return is surely unto hell. They indeed found their fathers astray, But they make haste (to follow) in their footsteps. And verily most of the men of old went astray before them, And verily We sent among them warners. Then see the nature of the consequence for those warned, S. 37:63-73 Pickthall

Here, these people are following the religion taught to them by their fathers, and some even doing shameful acts passed on to them by their forebears, so they have been misled. Yet, Allah still condemns them for these beliefs and practices, and they will still have to bear their full punishment (S. 11:109). It does not even help them to claim that it was Allah who enjoined it on them (S. 7:28), perhaps through some prophet in the past who claimed to bring commands from Allah, but who was actually a false prophet.

People who follow false teachers or prophets will suffer loss and punishment caused at least in part by those who led them astray. This is a common sense principle which is contradicted by Sura 34:50, a severe error and a glaring contradiction in the Qur'an.

 Is Jesus God? — Jesus claimed to be God.

Take for example the words of Jesus in John 10:30, “I and the Father are one.” We need only to look at the Jews’ reaction to His statement to know He was claiming to be God. They tried to stone Him for this very reason: “You, a mere man, claim to be God” (John 10:33, emphasis added). The Jews understood exactly what Jesus was claiming—deity. When Jesus declared, “I and the Father are one,” He was saying that He and the Father are of one nature and essence. John 8:58 is another example. Jesus declared, “I tell you the truth … before Abraham was born, I am!” This is a reference back to Exodus 3:14 when God revealed Himself as the “I AM.” The Jews who heard this statement responded by taking up stones to kill Him for blasphemy, as the Mosaic Law commanded (Leviticus 24:16).

Is Jesus God? — His followers declared Him to be God.

John reiterates the concept of Jesus’ deity: “The Word [Jesus] was God” and “the Word became flesh” (John 1:1, 14). These verses clearly indicate that Jesus is God in the flesh. Acts 20:28 tells us, “Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood.” Who bought the church with His own blood? Jesus Christ. And this same verse declares that God purchased His church with His own blood. Therefore, Jesus is God.

Thomas the disciple declared concerning Jesus, “My Lord and my God” (John 20:28). Jesus does not correct him. Titus 2:13 encourages us to wait for the coming of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ (see also 2 Peter 1:1). In Hebrews 1:8, the Father declares of Jesus, “But about the Son He says, ‘Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever, and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.’” The Father refers to Jesus as God, indicating that Jesus is indeed God.

In Revelation, an angel instructed the apostle John to only worship God (Revelation 19:10). Several times in Scripture Jesus receives worship (Matthew 2:11; 14:33; 28:9, 17; Luke 24:52; John 9:38). He never rebukes people for worshiping Him. If Jesus were not God, He would have told people to not worship Him, just as the angel in Revelation did. Beyond these, there are many other passages of Scripture that argue for Jesus being God.

If Jesus was God, why did He say "No one is good but God alone"?

It is often claimed by those who reject the deity of Christ that in Mark 10:17-22 Jesus denies His divinity by rejecting the notion that He is good. It reads as follows:

“As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. ‘Good teacher,’ he asked, ‘what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ ‘Why do you call me good?’ Jesus answered. ‘No one is good – except God alone. You know the commandments: Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.’ ‘Teacher,’ he declared, ‘all these I have kept since I was a boy.’ Jesus looked at him and loved him. ‘One thing you lack,’ he said. ‘Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.’ At this, the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.”

Is Jesus here rebuking the man for calling Him good and thereby denying His deity? No. Rather, He is using a penetrating question to push the man to think through the implications of his own words, to understand the concept of Jesus’ goodness and, most especially, the man’s lack of goodness. The young ruler "went away sad" (Mark 10:22) because he realized that although he had devoted himself to keeping the commandments, he had failed to keep the first and greatest of the commandments—love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength (Matthew 22:37-38). The man’s riches were of more worth to him than God, and thus he was not "good" in the eyes of God.

Jesus’ fundamental lesson here is that goodness flows not from a man’s deeds, but rather from God Himself. Jesus invites the man to follow Him, the only means of doing good by God’s ultimate standard. Jesus describes to the young ruler what it means to follow Him—to be willing to give up everything, thus putting God first. When one considers that Jesus is drawing a distinction between man’s standard of goodness and God’s standard, it becomes clear that following Jesus is good. The command to follow Christ is the definitive proclamation of Christ’s goodness. Thus, by the very standard Jesus is exhorting the young ruler to adopt, Jesus is good. And it necessarily follows that if Jesus is indeed good by this standard, Jesus is implicitly declaring His deity.

Thus, Jesus’ question to the man is designed not to deny His deity, but rather to draw the man to recognize Christ’s divine identity. Such an interpretation is substantiated by passages such as John 10:11 wherein Jesus declares Himself to be “the good shepherd.” Similarly in John 8:46, Jesus asks, “Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?” Of course the answer is "no." Jesus was “without sin” (Hebrews 4:15), holy and undefiled (Hebrews 7:26), the only One who “knew no sin” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

The logic can thus be summarized as follows:

1: Jesus claims only God is good.

2: Jesus claims to be good.

3: Therefore, Jesus claims to be God.

Such a claim makes perfect sense in light of the flow of Mark’s narrative with regards to the unfolding revelation of Jesus’ real identity. It is only before the high priest in Mark 14:62 that the question of Jesus’ identity is explicitly clarified. The story of the rich young ruler is one in a sequence of stories designed to point readers toward Jesus as the eternal, divine, incarnate Son of God

Was Muhammad certain of his Salvation?

 Was Muhammad certain of his Salvation?

Examining the capriciousness of Allah as the cause of Muhammad’s uncertainty

Written By: Sam Shamoun

Introduction – Muhammad just doesn’t know

According to the Quran, Muhammad was uncertain whether Allah would save him:

Or do they say, 'He has forged it'? Say: 'If I have forged it, you have no power to help me against Allah. He knows very well what you are pressing upon; He suffices as a witness between me and you; He is the All-forgiving, the All-compassionate.' Say: 'I am not an innovation among the Messengers, and I know not what shall be done with me or with you. I only follow what is revealed to me; I am only a clear warner.' S. 46:8-9 Meccan

The so-called authentic narrations make it clear that Muhammad was speaking in respect to his eternal fate:

Narrated 'Um al-'Ala:

An Ansari woman who gave the pledge of allegiance to the Prophet that the Ansar drew lots concerning the dwelling of the Emigrants. 'Uthman bin Maz'un was decided to dwell with them (i.e. Um al-'Ala's family), 'Uthman fell ill and I nursed him till he died, and we covered him with his clothes. Then the Prophet came to us and I (addressing the dead body) said, "O Abu As-Sa'ib, may Allah's Mercy be on you! I bear witness that Allah has honored you." On that the Prophet said, "How do you know that Allah has honored him?" I replied, "I do not know. May my father and my mother be sacrificed for you, O Allah's Apostle! But who else is worthy of it (if not 'Uthman)?" He said, "As to him, by Allah, death has overtaken him, and I hope the best for him. By Allah, though I am the Apostle of Allah, yet I do not know what Allah will do to me," By Allah, I will never assert the piety of anyone after him. That made me sad, and when I slept I saw in a dream a flowing stream for 'Uthman bin Maz'un. I went to Allah's Apostle and told him of it. He remarked, "That symbolizes his (good) deeds." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 266)


Narrated Abu Huraira:

When Allah revealed the Verse: "Warn your nearest kinsmen," Allah's Apostle got up and said, "O people of Quraish (or said similar words)! Buy (i.e. save) yourselves (from the Hellfire) as I cannot save you from Allah's Punishment; O Bani Abd Manaf! I cannot save you from Allah's Punishment, O Safiya, the Aunt of Allah's Apostle! I cannot save you from Allah's Punishment; O Fatima bint Muhammad! Ask me anything from my wealth, but I cannot save you from Allah's Punishment." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 51, Number 16) 

These references should trouble any Muslim. If Muhammad himself, the very founder and prophet of the religion of Islam, was uncertain where he would spend eternity then how can any Muslim know where they will go after they die?

Muslim scholars to the rescue!

Needless to say, these statements didn’t sit well with Muslims, especially the scholars. They were obviously troubled by the fact that even their very own prophet, who is supposed to be the standard of moral perfection, didn’t know for certain whether he was going to paradise or hell. The Muslims had to therefore come up with some convenient ways of explaining these troubling statements.

Some Muslims believe that these statements were made before Muhammad knew or was informed that he would be going to paradise. Still others are of the opinion that Q. 46:9 is not even speaking about the afterlife but this life, e.g. Muhammad doesn’t know whether he will be rejected by the people, driven out, killed etc.

The problem with the second explanation is that this directly conflicts with the hadith reports which specifically deal with the issue of the afterlife, not life in this world. In fact, according to some scholars Q. 46:9 was uttered in connection with Muhammad telling the woman that he didn’t know what Allah would do with 'Uthman bin Maz'un even though he was dead:

As for his expression "By Allah, though I am the Apostle of Allah, yet I do not know what Allah will do to me", the Prophet uttered this in accordance with Allah's statement in Surah al-Ahqaaf, "Say: "I am no bringer of new-fangled doctrine among the messengers, nor do I know what will be done with me or with you". This was before the revealing of the verse by Allah All Mighty, "That Allah may forgive you your sins of the past and the future" (Surah 48:2), because al-Ahqaaf is a Makkan Surah, while Surah al-Fatah is a Madinan Surah and there is no contradiction between the two of them. And it has been established that he said, "I am the first who will enter paradise," and there other reports which convey this meaning as well… (Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani, Fathul Bari, Kitab al-Janaaiz, Bab al-Dukhool 'Ala al-Mayyit Ba'd al-Mawt izhaa Adraja fi Akfaanihi, Commentary on Hadith no. 1166; bold and underline emphasis ours)


<<Say: "I am not a new thing among the Messengers...">> which means, ‘I am not the first Messenger who ever came to the world. Rather, Messengers came before me. Therefore, I am not an unprecedented incident that should cause you all to reject me and doubt my being sent to you. Indeed, Allah has sent before me all of the Prophets to various nations.’ Allah then says…

(nor do I know what will be done with me or with you.) `Ali bin Abi Talhah reported from Ibn `Abbas that he said, "It (this Ayah) was followed in revelation by…

<<That Allah may forgive for you your sins of the past and future>>. Similarly, `Ikrimah, Al-Hasan, and Qatadah all said that this Ayah was abrogated by the Ayah…

(That Allah may forgive for you your sins of the past and future). They said that when the latter Ayah was revealed, one of the Muslims said to Allah's Messenger, "Allah has declared what He will do for you. But what will He do for us?" Then Allah revealed…

(That He may admit the believing men and the believing women to Gardens under which rivers flow). This is what they said. That which has been confirmed in the Sahih is that the believers said, "May you enjoy that, O Allah's Messenger! But what do we get?" So Allah revealed this Ayah. Imam Ahmad recorded that Kharijah bin Zayd bin Thabit, reported that Umm Al-`Ala' -- a woman from the Ansar who had given her pledge of loyalty to Allah's Messenger -- said, "When the Ansar drew lots regarding taking in the Muhajirun to dwell with them, our lot was to have `Uthman bin Maz`un. Later, `Uthman fell sick in our house, so we nursed him until he died, and we wrapped him in his garments (for burial). Allah's Messenger then came in, and I said, `O Abu As-Sa'ib! May Allah have mercy on you. I bear witness that Allah has indeed honored you.' Allah's Messenger asked…

<<How do you know that Allah has honored him>> I said, `I do not know -- may my father and mother both be ransoms for you!' Allah's Messenger then said…

<<As for him, certainty (death) has reached him from his Lord, and I surely wish well for him. But by Allah, even though I am Allah's Messenger, I do not know what will happen to me (after death).>> I then said, `Never will I claim a person to be pious after this.' This incident caused me some distress, and I went to sleep thereafter. I saw in my dream that `Uthman owned a running water spring. I went to Allah's Messenger and told him about that. Allah's Messenger said …

<<That was his (good) deeds.>>" Al-Bukhari recorded this Hadith but Muslim did not. In one of the narrations, Allah's Messenger said…

<<Even though I am Allah's Messenger, I do not know what will happen to him.>> This and similar texts indicate that it is not allowed to declare that a specific person will enter Jannah except for those who were distinctly indicated by Allah or his Messenger. Examples of those are the Ten, Ibn Sallam, Al-Ghumaysa', Bilal, Suraqah, `Abdullah bin `Amr bin Haram (Jabir's father), the Seventy Reciters (of Qur'an) who were assassinated near the Well of Ma`unah, Zayd bin Harithah, Ja`far, Ibn Rawahah, and other similar individuals, may Allah be pleased with them… (Tafsir Ibn Kathir; source; bold and underline emphasis ours)


Even Muslim polemicist Bassam Zawadi, who tried to address this very topic, accepts that Q. 46:9 is dealing with Muhammad’s eternal destiny:

I personally favor the first solution. This is because it appears to me that the context of the hadeeth in Saheeh Bukhari makes it appear that the Prophet (peace be upon him) is speaking about how he doesn't know what will happen to him in the Hereafter. This of course is not necessarily true, but in my opinion it seems more likely. Thus, even though I believe that the second solution is still plausible, I will nevertheless personally opt for the first solution. (Was Prophet Muhammad Uncertain of His Own Salvation?; source; underline emphasis ours)

We can therefore rule out the second explanation since the context of the hadiths demonstrates the implausibility of this view, just as this Muslim dawagandist admits.

Was Muhammad actually forgiven of his sins?

According to the above expositors Q. 46:9 was canceled out or abrogated by Q. 48:2 since the latter text states that Muhammad’s past and future sins had been forgiven.

But is this what the verse actually says? Does it really claim that Allah had forgiven all of Muhammad’s previous and latter sins? Let us see:

Lo! We have given thee (O Muhammad) a signal victory, That Allah MAY forgive thee of thy sin that which is past and that which is to come, and MAY perfect His favour unto thee, and MAY guide thee on a right path, S. 48:1-2 Pickthall Medinan

As the readers can see for themselves the reference doesn’t say that Allah HAD forgiven Muhammad completely, but that he MAY forgive his messenger of his sins. Moreover, the following Sura, which was composed at a later time, shows that Allah hadn’t removed all of Muhammad’s sins:

When comes the Help of Allah (to you, O Muhammad against your enemies) and the conquest (of Makkah), And you see that the people enter Allah's religion (Islam) in crowds, So glorify the Praises of your Lord, and ask for His Forgiveness. Verily, He is the One Who accepts the repentance and forgives. S. 110:1-3 Medinan

The question to ask is why is Muhammad still being commanded to ask forgiveness for his sins if Allah had already completely forgiven him?

The answer is obvious… the text of Q. 48:2 doesn’t say that Allah would definitely wipe away his prophet’s sins, but that he may do so if he so chooses to. Yet Q. 110 makes it clear that Allah hadn’t chosen to remove all of Muhammad’s sins, which explains why the latter is still being commanded to seek for forgiveness. After all, if Allah has already forgiven Muhammad then there is no need to remind or command him to ask to be forgiven.

Muhammad lives in constant fears and doubts

There is further evidence that Allah hadn’t forgiven all of his prophet’s sins since the Quran is a witness that Muhammad remained uncertain of his destiny and that his god was constantly threatening him all throughout his career.

For example, Allah made Muhammad repeat the point that, even though he is a messenger, he doesn’t know what will happen and that he doesn’t have any power to hurt or benefit anyone:

Say (unto them, O Muhammad): I pray unto Allah only, and ascribe unto Him no partner. Say: Lo! I control not hurt nor benefit for you. Say: Lo! none can protect me from Allah, nor can I find any refuge beside Him (Mine is) but conveyance (of the Truth) from Allah, and His messages; and whoso disobeyeth Allah and His messenger, lo! his is fire of hell, wherein such dwell for ever. Till (the day) when they shall behold that which they are promised (they may doubt); but then they will know (for certain) who is weaker in allies and less in multitude. Say (O Muhammad, unto the disbelievers): I know not whether that which ye are promised is nigh, or if my Lord hath set a distant term for it. S. 72:20-25 Pickthall Meccan

Moreover, on more than one occasion Allah warned his prophet from changing the Quran:

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 Meccan

And surely they had purposed to turn you away from that which We have revealed to you, that you should forge against Us other than that, and then they would certainly have taken you for a friend. And had it not been that We had already established you, you would certainly have been near to incline to them a little; In that case We would certainly have made you to taste a double (punishment) in this life and a double (punishment) after death, then you would not have found any helper against Us. S. 17:73-75 Shakir Meccan

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 Meccan

Allah also threatened his messenger from turning away to worship other gods,

This is (part) of that wisdom wherewith thy Lord hath inspired thee (O Muhammad). And set not up with Allah any other god, lest thou be cast into hell, reproved, abandoned. S. 17:39 Pickthall Meccan

And certainly, it has been revealed to you and to those before you: Surely if you associate (with Allah), your work would certainly come to naught and you would certainly be of the losers. S. 39:65 Meccan

Allah even had to rebuke Muhammad for fearing men instead of his god:

O Prophet! be careful of (your duty to) Allah and do not comply with (the wishes of) the unbelievers and the hypocrites; surely Allah is Knowing, Wise… And when you said to him to whom Allah had shown favor and to whom you had shown a favor: Keep your wife to yourself and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; and you concealed in your soul what Allah would bring to light, and you feared men, and Allah had a greater right that you should fear Him. But when Zaid had accomplished his want of her, We gave her to you as a wife, so that there should be no difficulty for the believers in respect of the wives of their adopted sons, when they have accomplished their want of them; and Allah's command shall be performed. S. 33:1, 37 Medinan

O Messenger, deliver that which has been sent down to thee from thy Lord; for if thou dost not, thou wilt not have delivered His Message. Allah will protect thee from men. Allah guides not the people of the unbelievers. S. 5:67 Medinan

We further read in the Quran how Allah constantly chided his apostle for inclining his heart to the wealthy nobles of the Arabs while turning away or frowning upon the poor, the misfortunate and the marginalized:

And do not drive away those who call upon their Lord at morning and evening desiring His countenance; nothing of their account falls upon thee, and nothing of thy account falls upon them, that thou shouldst drive them away, and so become one of the evildoers. S. 6:52 Meccan

And restrain thyself with those who call upon their Lord at morning and evening, desiring His countenance, and let not thine eyes turn away from them, desiring the adornment of the present life; and obey not him whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance so that he follows his own lust, and his affair has become all excess. S. 18:28 Meccan

Stretch not thine eyes to that We have given pairs of them to enjoy - the flower of the present life, that We may try them therein and thy Lord's provision is better, and more enduring. S. 20:131 Meccan

He frowned and turned (his) back, Because there came to him the blind man. And what would make you know that he would purify himself, Or become reminded so that the reminder should profit him? As for him who considers himself free from need (of you), To him do you address yourself. And no blame is on you if he would not purify himself And as to him who comes to you striving hard, And he fears, From him will you divert yourself. S. 80:1-10 Shakir Meccan

And on one occasion Allah had to warn Muhammad to stop having doubts lest he become one of the losers:

And if thou (Muhammad) art in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto thee, then question those who read the Scripture (that was) before thee. Verily the Truth from thy Lord hath come unto thee. So be not thou of the waverers. And be not thou of those who deny the revelations of Allah, for then wert thou of the losers. S. 10:94-95 Pickthall Meccan

Yet it is hard to see how Muhammad could avoid having serious doubts when his deity is constantly warning and threatening him. These repeated scare tactics would cause him to have greater doubts and may explain why Muhammad never felt certain whether Allah would honor him,

And some part of the night awake for it, a largess for thee. It MAY BE that thy Lord will raise thee to a praised estate. S. 17:79 Meccan

'Abdullah b. Amr b. al-As reported Allah's Messenger as saying: When you hear the Mu'adhdhin, repeat what he says, then invoke a blessing on me, for everyone who invokes a blessing on me will receive ten blessings from Allah; then BEG from Allah al-Wasila for me, which is a rank in Paradise fitting for only one of Allah's servants, and I HOPE that I MAY BE that one. If anyone who asks that I be given the Wasila, he will be assured of my intercession. (Sahih Muslim, Book 004, Number 0747)

And why he asked his community to pray for his salvation and peace:

Verily, Allah and His angels pray for the prophet. O ye who believe! pray for him and salute him with a salutation! S. 33:56

We know that Allah, his angels, and the believers are all praying for Muhammad’s salvation and forgiveness because of the following verse which appears in the same sura:

He it is who prays for you and His angels too, to bring you forth out of the darkness into the light, for He is merciful to the believers. S. 33:43

As well as this one:

The heavens wellnigh are rent above them, when the angels proclaim the praise of their Lord, and ask forgiveness for those on earth. Surely Allah -- He is the All-forgiving, the All-compassionate. S. 42:5

The foregoing indicates that the very purpose for praying for Muhammad is to beseech Allah to bestow peace and salvation on his messenger.

It goes from bad to worse for Muhammad. Not only did he have to live under the constant terror and dread of his god he even had to undergo some rather humiliating circumstances:

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 (Sufyan said: That is the hardest kind of magic as it has such an effect). Then one day he said, "O ‘Aisha do you know that Allah has instructed me concerning the matter I asked Him about? Two men came to me and one of them sat near my head and the other sat near my feet. The one near my head asked the other, ‘What is wrong with this man?’ The latter replied he is under the effect of magic. The first one asked, ‘Who has worked magic on him?’ The other replied, ‘Labid bin Al-A’sam, a man from Bani Zuraiq who was an ally of the Jews and was a hypocrite.’ The first one asked, ‘What material did he use?’ The other replied, ‘A comb and the hair stuck to it.’ The first one asked, ‘Where (is that)?’ The other replied, ‘In a skin of pollen of a male date palm tree kept under a stone in the well of Dharwan.’" So the Prophet went to that well and took out those things and said, "That was the well which was shown to me (in a dream). Its water looked like the infusion of Henna leaves and its date-palm trees looked like the heads of devils." The Prophet added, "Then that thing was taken out." I said (to the Prophet) "Why do you not treat yourself with Nashra?" He said, "Allah has cured me; I dislike to let evil spread among my people." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 71, Number 660)

According to specific sources the spell lasted a year:

I In commenting on this Suhayli asserts that the tradition is sound and is accepted by the traditionists. He found in the Jami’ of Mu‘ammar b. Rashad (a work which I cannot find mentioned by Brockelmann) the statement THAT THE SPELL LASTED A YEAR. He adds that the Mu‘tazila and Modernists rejected the tradition on the ground that prophets could not be bewitched otherwise they would commit sin and that would be contrary to the word of God ‘And God will protect thee from men’ (5.71). He finds the tradition unassailable. It is properly attested and intellectually acceptable. The prophets were not preserved from bodily afflictions in which category sorcery falls. (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), p. 240; bold and capital emphasis ours)

Moreover, Allah allowed Muhammad to endure a very painful death as a result of food poisoning:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

A Jewess brought a poisoned (cooked) sheep for the Prophet who ate from it. She was brought to the Prophet and he was asked, "Shall we kill her?" He said, "No." I continued to see the effect of the poison on the palate of the mouth of Allah's Apostle. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 47, Number 786)

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)

His condition became so severe that some of his own companions thought that Muhammad had become mentally ill, even delirious:

Narrated Said bin Jubair:

that he heard Ibn 'Abbas saying, "Thursday! And you know not what Thursday is?" After that Ibn 'Abbas wept till the stones on the ground were soaked with his tears. On that I asked Ibn 'Abbas, "What is (about) Thursday?" He said, "When the condition (i.e. health) of Allah's Apostle deteriorated, he said, ‘Bring me a bone of scapula, so that I may write something for you after which you will never go astray.’ The people differed in their opinions although it was improper to differ in front of a prophet. They said, ‘What is wrong with him? Do you think he is delirious? Ask him (to understand).’ The Prophet replied, ‘Leave me as I am in a better state than what you are asking me to do.’ Then the Prophet ordered them to do three things saying, ‘Turn out all the pagans from the Arabian Peninsula, show respect to all foreign delegates by giving them gifts as I used to do.’" The sub-narrator added, "The third order was something beneficial which either Ibn 'Abbas did not mention or he mentioned but I forgot." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 53, Number 393)


Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

When Allah's Apostle was on his death-bed and in the house there were some people among whom was 'Umar bin Al-Khattab, the Prophet said, "Come, let me write for you a statement after which you will not go astray." 'Umar said, "The Prophet is seriously ill and you have the Qur'an; so the Book of Allah is enough for us." The people present in the house differed and quarrelled. Some said, "Go near so that the Prophet may write for you a statement after which you will not go astray," while the others said as Umar said. When they caused a hue and cry before the Prophet, Allah's Apostle said, "Go away!" Narrated 'Ubaidullah: Ibn 'Abbas used to say, "It was very unfortunate that Allah's Apostle was prevented from writing that statement for them because of their disagreement and noise." (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 70, Number 573)

A side note: How interesting to find Umar and a group of unnamed companions of Muhammad stating that Allah’s book, i.e. the Quran, is all that is needed when we have Sunnis telling us all the time that Muslims also need Muhammad’s sunna since the Quran is insufficient.


Ahmad b. Hammad al-Dulabi – Sufyan – Sulayman b. Abi Muslim – Sa‘id b. Jubayr – Ibn ‘Abbas: Thursday, what a Thursday! He said: The Messenger of God’s pain because to severe that he said, "Give me [pen and paper] so that I may write a document for you and you will never go astray after me!" His companions wrangled over it, and it did not befit them to carry on a dispute before a prophet. Some people said, "What’s the matter with him! Is he talking nonsense? Ask him a question." [When] they went back, repeating [those remarks] to him, he replied, "Leave me [alone], the state that I am in is better than that for which you are calling me." He charged them with three things: … [Sa‘id b. Jubayr states that Ibn ‘Abbas] became silent about the third [command] either intentionally, or that he said that he had forgotten it.

Abu Kurayb and Salih b. Sammal – Waki’ – Malik b. Mighwal – Talhah b. Musarrif – Sa‘id b. Jubayr – Ibn ‘Abbas: Thursday, what a Thursday! [Sa‘id b. Jubayr:] Then I looked at Ibn ‘Abbas’ tears flowing on his cheeks as if they were a chain of pearls, [saying:] The Messenger of God said, "Bring me a tablet (lawh) and an inkpot (dawat), or a plank of the shoulder blade (katif) and an inkpot, so that I can write for you a document, after which you will not go astray." Some [people] said that the Messenger of God was talking deliriously. (The History of al-Tabari – The Last Years of the Prophet, translated and annotated by Ismail K. Poonawala [State University of New York (SUNY) Press, Albany 1990], Volume IX (9), pp. 174-175; bold and underline emphasis ours)

The translator adds some interesting notes:

1206. Baladhuri: They said: "Do you see him talking nonsense?" and [started] wrangling among themselves. The Messenger of God became grieved and annoyed and asked them to leave.

1207. The Prophet was not happy with ‘Umar because he did not cooperate with him when he asked for pen and paper. See Ibn Sa‘d, Tabaqat, II/2, 36-38; Buhl, Leben, 353: Momen, Shi‘i Islam, 15-16. The Shi‘is claim that the prophet wanted to make a written testament favoring ‘Ali’s succession as head of the nascent Islamic state but that ‘Umar foiled his plan. See Mirza, al-Balagh, I, 254-86. (Ibid., p. 174; bold and underline emphasis ours)

Thus, Allah humiliated his prophet by allowing him to come under the power of magic for a year which caused him to think that he was actually having sex with all of his wives. To see just how disgraceful this is one simply has to ask what was Muhammad actually doing during the entire year that he thought he was sleeping with his wives? Are we to assume that Muhammad was pleasuring himself in some manner which led him to think that he was actually engaging in intercourse?

Allah further disgraced Muhammad by permitting him to die in an excruciating manner, from the effects of poison, which led to a situation where his very own companions thought he was delirious, out of his mind, and speaking nonsense.

Allah did all this to him despite his promises in the Quran that he would protect his righteous servants from the Devil and insuring his messenger that Satan and the disbelievers would not be able to harm him by their schemes, which would obviously include such things as magic and poison (cf. Q. 5:67; 7:11-18; 15:32-44; 16:98-100 & 72:27-28).

 Aisha — 6 year-old bride

   Sahih Bukhari

Narrated Aisha: The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became Allright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, "Best wishes and Allah's Blessing and a good luck." Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah's Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age. Volume 5, Book 58, Number 234

Narrated 'Aisha: I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah's Apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet would call them to join and play with me. (The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for 'Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13) Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151

'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house at the age of nine. She further said: We went to Medina and I had an attack of fever for a month, and my hair had come down to the earlobes. Umm Ruman (my mother) came to me and I was at that time on a swing along with my playmates. She called me loudly and I went to her and I did not know what she had wanted of me. She took hold of my hand and took me to the door, and I was saying: Ha, ha (as if I was gasping), until the agitation of my heart was over. She took me to a house, where had gathered the women of the Ansar. They all blessed me and wished me good luck and said: May you have share in good. She (my mother) entrusted me to them. They washed my head and embellished me and nothing frightened me. Allah's Messenger (, may peace be upon him) came there in the morning, and I was entrusted to him. Book 8, Number 3309.

Book 8, Number 3311

   Sunan Dawud

Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) married me when I was seven or six. When we came to Medina, some women came. according to Bishr's version: Umm Ruman came to me when I was swinging. They took me, made me prepared and decorated me. I was then brought to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him), and he took up cohabitation with me when I was nine. She halted me at the door, and I burst into laughter. Book 41, Number 4915:

Narrated AbuUsamah: The tradition mentioned above (No. 4915) has also been transmitted by AbuUsamah in a similar manner through a different chain of narrators. This version has: "With good fortune. " She (Umm Ruman) entrusted me to them. They washed my head and redressed me. No one came to me suddenly except the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) in the forenoon. So they entrusted me to him. Book 41, Number 4916:

Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin: When we came to Medina, the women came to me when I was playing on the swing, and my hair were up to my ears. They brought me, prepared me, and decorated me. Then they brought me to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) and he took up cohabitation with me, when I was nine. Book 41, Number 4917

As an older man of fifty-plus years, Muhammad married a mere child of six years old and co-habited with her when she was 9 years old. As quoted above, the most trusted collections of hadiths establish the authenticity of this oral tradition. But still, Western Muslims are embarrassed by these hadiths. Sometimes they use a Weak hadith defense to excuse Muhammad's child marriage.

At other times, they use an Arabic culture defense by claiming that no one has the right to judge Oriental culture by Occidental norms. Now, this is a strange defense to make, since Muslims frequently criticized Western culture as being morally decadent. If another culture cannot be morally evaluated, then other cultures must not be judged as morally decadent. But, this conclusion is not acceptable to Muslims, since they argue that an Islamic culture is the better culture. So, we must conclude that cultures may be evaluated morally, or that, someone is hypocritically judging others while not permitting themselves to be judged by the same standard.  

However, if hypocrisy is not a good alternative, then it is concluded that cultures may be evaluated morally. In fact, it is permissible, and even desirable, to have moral discussions on cultural issues. Moral discussions on cultural issues occur in many different cultures.

So, the problem of Muhammad marrying a child cannot be defended on Eastern cultural grounds. The issue remains as to whether or not Muhammad acted rightly in marrying a six year old. Certainly, it is wrong according to the natural order of Allah's creation. In fact, many nations of the world list such behavior as a crime against nature. Thus, it must be concluded that Muhammad committed a grave moral sin against the moral order of Allah's creation. And, his behavior is a reprehensible example for others to follow. It is tragic to read news reports of old men marrying children in some Islamic countries, because they seek to follow the example of Muhammad who married a child. Muhammad had such an interest in fondling young girls, he criticized even the lawful marriage union of two grown adults.  

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?' Sahih Al-Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 17.

In the classic history of "The Life of Muhammad" (Sirat Rasul Allah) 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 which would have made Muhammad approximately 55 years old. He had married Ayesha 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...1

So, Muhammad's interest in young girls extended beyond Ai'sha ('Ayesha). Why would anyone think that Muhammad's sexual interest in babies be "the timeless expression of the Will of Allah?" How does such a prurient desire support Muhammad's claim to be a prophet of Allah? Such a desire by an old man is contrary to nature, and it is a perversion against the moral order of Allah's universe.

An example of one of the problems of child marriages: "Sierra Leone's silent sufferers. Most commonly the head of the foetus is too large to enter the birth canal, and presses the bladder against the bony side wall of the pelvis. Crushed in that way over a period of days, the tissue dies and a hole is created. From that moment the women are never free of the trickle of urine. Fatmata's experience was as typical as it was catastrophic. She was rejected by her husband, and by her family. Regarded as unclean - and by some as jinxed - she was driven out of her village. ...

They included 15-year-old Sia Foday who was married off by her family at the age of nine and was quickly pregnant. Sia - small for her age - was only 10 when she tried to give birth and ended up incontinent. Another of the women, Aminata Kanda, said she only survived because her children collected firewood to sell and helped her tend a small garden. "Life was really horrible for me. When I was in this sickness the urine was coming non-stop... the odour of the urine is horrible... that is why even my husband wouldn't allow me to stay in his house," she says."

Yet, according to Islam, Muhammad is the perfection of humanity and the prototype of the most wonderful human conduct. He married a nine year-old and leaves an enduring legacy for old Muslim men to fulfill their carnal desires contrary to natural law and to the life-long devastation of young girls.

Sahih al-Bukhari 63

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

While we were sitting with the Prophet (ﷺ) in the mosque, a man came riding on a camel. He made his camel kneel down in the mosque, tied its foreleg and then said: "Who amongst you is Muhammad?" At that time the Prophet (ﷺ) was sitting amongst us (his companions) leaning on his arm. We replied, "This white man reclining on his arm." The man then addressed him, "...

Mohammad had lots of semen on his clothes

 Mohammad had lots of semen on his clothes

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.

Wow... Mohammad was quite the man. I am sure Bukhari included these verses because of his admiration and total respect for Mohammad.

Yet, once again, this story brings to mind several questions regarding the life and times of Mohammad.

1) If Mohammad had many wives, why was his semen on his clothes?

a) Did Mohammad withdraw and get the semen on hmself?

b) Couldn't Mohammad have shot the semen somewhere else?

c) Was Mohammad the inventor of the "money shot" which resulted in his poor aim?

d) What type of sexual moves was Mohammad pioneering where Aisha was just never able to clean all the semen stains of his cloak?

2) Why didn't Mohammad use another cloak before he went to preach?

a) As a prophet who was entitled to 20% of the war booty, couldnt he have at least obtained another cloak/robe just for that reason?

b) Couldnt Mohammad have waited until the wet spots used to clean his semen were dry before he went to preach?

3) How much semen did Mohammad have on his cloak, seeing how Aisha would always find another spot?

4) Was it customary for people in 600 AD Arabia to have semen on their clothing, especially considering that Aisha made it a point to relate this story to several people, as if she were complaining about having to clean Mohammad's semen stains?

And finally, a question for modern day Muslims:

If Mohammad is the perfect human being, and should be imitated by all Muslims, shouldn't all Muslims make sure to have semen stains on their clothing, and then  have their wives clean it with water before they go and work, in order to faithfully imitate their prophet?

Muhammad owned numerous slaves, both male and female. Muslims have followed his example and have aggressively bartered in the slave trade for almost 1400 years. This Islamic slave trade continues to this day. Historical evidence documents that the Arab slave trade was the major seller of blacks. One estimate claimed, during the period between 650 and 1900, Arab slave traders stole 14.4 million blacks from Africa.[10] Without respect to human rights, millions of black slaves have been sold around the world in direct correlation to Islamic oppression and unscrupulous dogma which contradicts the New Testament teachings.

When the Muslims first invaded Northern Africa, they gave the blacks a choice to follow Islam or become slaves to be sold. Trade between the Muslims and Europeans stemmed from the Islamic practice of slave trading. Many of the larger tribes throughout Africa aligned themselves with the Muslims to capture enemy tribes. Thus, Africans enslaved one another in collusion with the Muslim slave traders. Prior to the Islamic or European slave trade, Africa had a harsh slavery tradition among their own people for territorial conquest and power. Blacks were involved in slavery long before other nations conquered them; but Muslims amplified the practice to satiate a world market looking to fill its greedy appetite for cheap labor.

In Islamic dominated countries today, a large scale slave trade continues unabated, trading blacks, whites, oriental, other ethnic groups, and even children. Many of these children are used as sexual toys for the wealthier clientele. In the Sudan, Arab slave traders still buy and sell Dinka slaves to family and friends. Many of these slaves are transported to the wealthy nations of the Middle East to service the powerful oil sheiks.
















Currently, the number of chattel slaves has been estimated in the tens of thousands. Some of the newly captured slaves attempt to escape and are often murdered as a consequence. Frequently, women and young girls are savagely raped and sodomized. The Qur’an sanctioned sex with any girl [at any age] that one owns, “And all married women are forbidden unto you save those (captives) whom your right hand possess” (Qur’an 4:24). Under Islam, a slave has no legal rights. He or she is cruelly treated and simply considered material possessions. Ibn Warraq has cited an astonishing report:

In the French magazine, L Vie (no. 2562, 6 Oct. 1994) 45,000 young black Africans per year are still kidnapped and reduced to slavery—as servants in the gulf states and the Middle East.[11]

Many of these slaves were acquired from Southern Sudan. The Islamic government of Sudan financially and often militarily assisted in the raping and subjugation of the black Christians of southern Sudan.













During the summer of 1992, I witnessed evidence of these atrocities on my third missionary trip to Africa. I was standing on a sidewalk in downtown Nairobi, Kenya and was approached by a well spoken middle-aged man. He asked for a cigarette but I said I was a missionary en route to Burundi and did not smoke. He began to relay to me his recent personal saga. To my surprise, he claimed to have walked all the way from Sudan to Nairobi and was planning to continue his quest and join a militia training camp inTanzania. His plans were to equip himself with the necessary training and weapons in order to eventually return and fight with the resistance movement in his home land of southern Sudan.

His family and friends were massacred by the Muslim forces from the North of Sudan. He pulled up his pants to reveal his ankles which were swollen larger than softballs due to the extreme distance he had already walked, perhaps anywhere from 600 to 900 miles. I was dumbfounded since the news media had covered little on these events. I gave him a few dollars and wished him good luck on his journey.


It was not until over a decade later, during the Darfur genocide, that the media and notable personalities began to point out the outrageous deeds by the Islamic perpetrators and their cohorts. Most established agencies have estimated 300,000 to 450,000 dead and up to 2 million displaced. In addition, vast numbers of these Sudanese victims were captured as slaves and often raped.

These are only a few examples of the subjugation of blacks by the Arab slave trade. Islam does not promote morality in relation to human rights. The Islamic practice of sexual abuse, slavery and racism has been well documented; it remains a religion of bigotry, intolerance, and war. Undoubtedly, the reason one-fifth the population of the world follows the Islamic system is due to a lack of historical knowledge and awareness of the issues disclosed in this documentation.



The founding apostles of Christianity lived during the reign of the powerful Roman Empire where slavery was the norm. The early Christian writers were not officials and could not abolish the existing Roman laws concerning slavery, but they did denounce such practices as evil. The apostle Paul admonished Christians to abandon any participation in this abhorrent market. In verse sixteen of his letter to the Christian, Philemon, he asked that the runaway slave, Onesimus, be returned and to be regarded, “No longer as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved.” In the context, the term ‘servant’ meant “slave” in Koine Greek. Slave trading was considered a serious sin in the New Testament. The Bible ranked this transgression among others:

For the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of mothers, for menstealers, for whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine (I Tim. 1:9-10).

The original Greek renders ‘menstealer’ (antrapodistais) as: “Manstealer, a slave-dealer, kidnapper, one who unjustly takes free men into slavery, or one who steals the slaves of others and sells them.” Anyone who has partaken in the slave trade business or owned slaves has broken the New Testament’s teachings.

Even among Christians, the abuse of slavery resulted in a bloody civil war among the states of the Union. This sin brought mass carnage upon brothers and sisters of the same faith. Disobedience to scriptural teachings ultimately brings judgment from Yahveh. Muhammad, however, also opposed the original biblical scriptures in favor of his way of life. Frequently, he claimed Moses as a great hero who led his people out of Egyptian bondage; yet, hypocritically, he personally demonstrated his engagement in the slave trade as both owner and instigator.

Obviously, Muhammad was not a prophet of the biblical tenets and doctrinal persuasion prescribed in the New Testament. Consequently, Muhammad and his followers will face a final judgment for disobeying the Judaic scriptures and for following after the false moon-god, Allah.

I want you to understand what this 54 year old monstrous animal – Muhammad did to a child. Quoting from Page 97 book –KILLING PROPHET MUHAMMAD ” Molested his wife – six-year-old Baby Aisha. One of Baby Aisha’s wifely duties was to clean semen stains from the prophet’s clothes. Muhammad would take a bath with Baby Aisha and thigh with Baby Aisha fondling her 6 year old vagina and taking his penis and rubbing it up and down this poor child’s 6 year old thighs until he ejaculated onto her 6 year old leg. Being a man of mercy he did not penetrate Baby Aisha until she was nine, ramming his penis into her vagina ripping Baby Aisha’s insides apart. He sexually molested and raped her for another 9 years.” Reiterating these depraved diabogical acts of evil: Thighing, child molestation, rape of children, fondling a child.s vagina, and ALL THE OTHER CRIMES of this monster is Sunna in Islam: Holy and divine.

Raped Baby Aisha when she was nine. Advocated sex with baby girls.

To truly understand the crimes committed against Baby Aisha go to movie at

To justify his crimes Muhammad turned Allah into a pedophile god by creating Quran 65:4 allowing Muslim men to molest and rape children. A child can be married at birth with her father permission and raped at nine.


“And those who no longer expect menstruation among your women – if you doubt, then their period is three months, and [also for] those who have not menstruated. And for those who are pregnant, their term is until they give birth. And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him of his matter ease.”


Massacre of Banu Qurayza: An Horrific Act Not of a Human Being But An Animal with No Heart and No Soul.

At the Massacre of Banu Qurayza – Muhammad personally beheaded 2 Jewish Chieftains and ordered the beheading of all Jewish men including young boys with pubic hair totaling between 600 to 800 men/boys. The women and children were sold into slavery. Can you imagine – beheading all the men and selling the women and children as booty.



This article provides compelling reasons to help Muslims make an unbiased evaluation of Islam. The article is intentionally written in an assertive manner so as to thaw Muslims from the years of lies that they have been fed from infancy. If you, as a Muslim, find this article offensive or even shocking, we strongly encourage you to examine the Islamic references provided here on your own. Though this article may understandably upset or anger you, please remember that the ones telling such truths are in reality the sincere friends of the Muslims. While Truth may hurt, it is the Lies that will kill you. Your eternal salvation depends on knowing the Truth about your Creator.


Muhammad received his calling in the darkness of a cave. His immediate conclusion was that the spirit which delivered the opening verses of the Qur’an was an evil force. Therefore, it is absolutely important to begin our evaluation of Islam by investigating the calling of Muhammad as a Prophet of Allah.

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 1, Number 3:

The Prophet added, “The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read and I replied, ‘I do not know how to read.’ Thereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me 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 the Most Generous.” (96.1, 96.2, 96.3)

Then Allah’s Apostle returned with the Inspiration and with his heart beating severely. Then he went to Khadijah bint Khuwailid and said, “Cover me! Cover me!” They covered him till his fear was over and after that he told her everything that happened and said, “I fear that something may happen to me.” Khadijah replied, “Never! By Allah, Allah will never disgrace you. You keep good relations with your Kith and kin, help the poor and the destitute, serve your guests generously and assist the deserving calamity-afflicted ones.”

Something really distressing must have occurred in the cave. Muhammad ran back to his wife terrorized. He tells her: “I fear that something may happen to me.” And just as children hide under the blankets when they are terrified, Muhammad urged his wife to cover him. He did not want to see the cause of that terror again. That supernatural confrontation in the cave was more demonic than divine. Muhammad was convinced that the spirit which spoke to him was a demon. Muhammad was the first person to doubt the genuineness of the revelation he received from Allah in the Cave of Hira. No other Prophets of God ever had an experience similar to that of Muhammad.


After the terrifying and violent encounter with the spirit, Muhammad became extremely distraught. He became suicidal. It is absolutely outrageous that a Prophet of God could be pushed towards suicide following a revelation from God.

Ibn Ishaq is one of the earliest biographers of Muhammad. His biography is indispensable to the study on Muhammad’s life and is used extensively in well-known Islamic universities such as the Al-Azhar University in Cairo. Ibn Ishaq’s biography on Muhammad is known as “Sirat Rasul Allah.” This renowned biography reveals the fear and the depressive state of mind which Muhammad experienced following his encounter with the spirit messenger in the Cave of Hira:

So I (Muhammad) read it, and he (Gabriel) departed from me. And I awoke from my sleep, and it was as though these words were written on my heart. Now none of God’s creatures was more horrible to me than a poet or a man possessed: I could not even look at them. I thought, “Woe is me poet or possessed – Never shall Quraysh say this of me! I will go to the top of the mountain and throw myself down that I may kill myself and gain rest.” (Ibn Ishaq, p. 106)

Yes, you read it right. After his encounter with the spirit in the cave, Muhammad believed he was possessed by a demon. And Muhammad became suicidal. Muhammad’s suicide attempts were not a one-off thing. He repeated tried to kill himself over the years.

Sahih Bukhari, Book 9, Volume 87, Number 111:

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. (Only the relevant quote is cited here)

Not many Muslims are aware of Muhammad’s suicide attempts. Understandably, few Islamic scholars will ever want to teach this to their fellow Muslims because it casts a stain upon Muhammad reputation as a Prophet. It brings doubt to the credibility of his assumed “prophetic” experience. Some Muslims scholars respond by saying that the shock of the experience caused him to attempt suicide. This is a blatant lie. The shock of the initial experience would have worn off over the next few days, if not weeks. Why then did Muhammad continue to attempt suicide long after his initial encounter in the cave? A true Prophet would have turned to God for comfort instead of attempting to end his life. A Prophet who attempts suicide on numerous occasions cannot be a Prophet of the true God. Sincere Muslims should take note of this important fact regarding Muhammad.

In the final assessment, we can see that the very first revelation that Muhammad received–the seeds out of which Islam sprouted–began amidst a violent and dark encounter with some form of a spirit being in the darkness of a cave. And Islam is built on the foundation of this dark and fearsome encounter.


One of the most embarrassing events in Muhammad’s life was when Satan cast his words upon the tongue of Muhammad. As a result, Muhammad spoke the words of Satan believing it to be the words of Allah. This incident came to be known as “The Satanic Verses.” The episode of the Satanic Verses is well-known among the early Muslims. The event is well documented in many authoritative Islamic sources. It is recorded by the earliest Islamic sources available on Muhammad’s life. Renowned Muslim scholars like Ibn Ishaq, Ibn Sa’d, and al-Tabari have all documented this event in their scholarly works. They have all testified to the Satanic Verses as an authentic event. And they are not the enemies of Islam. In his commentary regarding the historicity of the episode of the Satanic Verses, prominent Muslim Scholar, Shahab Ahmed, stated:

“The Satanic verses incident constituted a standard element in the historical memory of the Muslim community in the first 150 years of Islam, and was recorded by almost all prominent scholars working in the fields of Tafsir and Sirah-Maghazi.” (Shahab Ahmed, The Satanic Verses Incident in the Memory of the Early Muslim Community – An Analysis of the Early Riwayahs and their Isnads, p. i)

When Muhammad was preaching in Mecca, he did not win many converts to his new found religion. However, he desperately wanted those from his tribe to accept Islam. He was hoping to receive a Qur’anic verse that would help them accept Islam. Then one day he got the revelation that he was longing for. We will now consider the detailed account of this incident as recorded by Ibn Ishaq. Please read the following historical account carefully.

Sirat Rasul Allah:

“Now the apostle was anxious for the welfare of his people, wishing to attract them as far as he could. It has been mentioned that he longed for a way to attract them and the method he adopted is what Ibn Hamid told me that Salama said M. b. Ishaq told him from Yazid b. Ziyad of Medina from M. b. Ka`b al-Qurazi: When the apostle saw that his people turned their backs on him and he was pained by their estrangement from what he brought them from God he longed that there should come to him from God a message that would reconcile his people to him. Because of his love for his people and his anxiety over them it would delight him if the obstacle that made his task so difficult could be removed; so that he meditated on the project and longed for it and it was dear to him.

Then God sent down “By the star when it sets your comrade errs not and is not deceived, he speaks not from his own desire,” and when he reached His words “Have you thought of al-Lat and al-`Uzza and Manat the third, the others,” Satan, when he was meditating upon it, and desiring to bring it (reconciliation) to his people, put upon his tongue “these are the exalted Gharaniq whose intercession is approved.”

When the Quraysh heard that, they were delighted and greatly pleased at the way in which he spoke of their gods and they listened to him; while the believers were holding that what their prophet brought from their Lord was true, not suspecting a mistake or a vain desire or slip, and when he reached the prostration and the end of the Sura in which he prostrated himself the Muslims prostrated themselves when their prophet prostrated confirming what he brought and obeying his command, and the polytheists of Quraysh and others who were in the mosque prostrated when they heard the mention of their gods, so that everyone in the mosque believer and unbeliever prostrated, except al-Walid b. al-Mughira who was an old man who could not do so, so he took a handful of dirt from the valley and bent over it.

Then the people dispersed and the Quraysh went out, delighted at what had been said about their gods, saying, “Muhammad has spoken of our gods in splendid fashion. He alleged in what he read that they are the exalted Gharaniq whose intercession is approved.”

The news reached the prophet’s companions who were in Abyssinia, it being reported that Quraysh had accepted Islam, so some men started to return while others remained behind. Then Gabriel came to the apostle and said, “What have you done, Muhammad? You have read to these people something I did not bring you from God and you have said what He did not say to you.” The apostle was bitterly grieved and was greatly in fear of God.

So God sent down (a revelation), for he was merciful to him comforting him and making light of the affair and telling him that every prophet and apostle before him desired as he desired and wanted what he wanted and Satan interjected something into his desires as he had on his tongue. So God annulled what Satan had suggested and God established His verses i.e. you are just like the prophets and apostles.

Then God sent down: “We have not sent a prophet or apostle before you but when he longed Satan cast suggestions into his longing. But God will annul what Satan has suggested. Then God will establish his verses, God being knowing and wise.” Thus God relieved his prophet’s grief, and made him feel safe from his fears and annulled what Satan had suggested in the words used above about their gods by his revelation “Are yours the males and His the females? That were indeed an unfair division” (i.e. most unjust); “they are nothing by names which your fathers gave them” as far as the words “to whom he pleases and accepts,” i.e. how can the intercession of their gods avail with Him?

When the annulment of what Satan had put upon the prophet’s tongue came from God, Quraysh said: “Muhammad has repented of what he said about the position of your gods with Allah, altered it and brought something else.” (The Life of Muhammad: A Translation of Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah, with introduction and notes by Alfred Guillaume, pp. 165-167)

Why would Allah make “light of the affair” of a Prophet speaking the words of Satan as the words of God? As we can see, Muhammad acknowledged to being deceived by Satan. Muhammad’s exultation of the goddesses of the polytheists and the subsequent willingness of the pagans to prostrate along with him in prayer clearly proves that Muhammad compromised to idolatry. Although he later realized the consequences of what he had done, this does not diminish the fact that he was deceived by Satan. This does not excuse his participation in idolatry.

What is important for Muslims to learn from this incident is that it shows that Muhammad could not distinguish between the words of Allah and the words of Satan. He received a revelation from Satan which he proclaimed as a message from Allah. The message was not only false but also demonic. Now, take careful note of Allah’s response to the Satanic Verses:

Surah 22:52: “Never did We send a Messenger or a Prophet before you, but, when he did recite the revelation or narrated or spoke, Shaitan (Satan) threw some falsehood in it. But Allah abolishes that which Shaitan (Satan) throws in. Then Allah establishes His Revelations. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise.” (Hilali-Khan)

Can you comprehend the full implication of Allah’s response to the Satanic Verses spoken by Muhammad? Allah is in effect saying: “Don’t worry about it Muhammad, all Prophets proclaim Satanic messages from time to time.” In other words, Allah is saying that every Messenger of God who lived before the time of Muhammad have recited the verses of Satan when they received revelations from God. While Allah revealed Surah 22:52 to justify the blasphemous sin of Muhammad, this Qur’anic verse serves to confirm the indisputable truth that the Satanic Verses episode did actually happen.

What should concern Muslims is that Allah openly lied that all the previous Prophets of God were also influenced by Satan. This blatant lie was deliberately advanced by Allah to down-play the humiliation of Muhammad who submitted to satanic influence. Surah 22:52 which falsely claims that all of God’s Prophets succumbed to satanic influence, is in itself a Satanic Verse woven into the very fabric of the Qur’an. To excuse Muhammad’s transgression, Allah defamed all the Prophets of God. Allah did not provide the slightest proof to substantiate his wicked defamation of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and many other faithful Prophets of God. Other than Muhammad, Allah could not provide a single name of any ancient Prophets who succumbed to the influences of Satan. In summary, read the historical record of Al-Tabari. He is recognized as one of the most important ancient historians of Islam.

Tabari, VI:107:

“Satan cast a false Qur’an revelation on the Messenger of Allah’s tongue.”

Well, Muslims does it not concern you that your Prophet spoke the words of Satan as the words of Allah? How many other verses did Muhammad receive from Satan?


Islamic sources clearly state that even during his prophetic career as the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad came under the spell of black magic. Yes! Muhammad was bewitched. Let us now consider the evidences from the most authentic sources of Islam. We will simple let these sources do the talking.

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 490:

Narrated By ‘Aisha: Magic was worked on the Prophet so that he began to fancy that he was doing a thing which he was not actually doing. One day he invoked (Allah) for a long period and then said, “I feel that Allah has inspired me as how to cure myself. Two persons came to me (in my dream) and sat, one by my head and the other by my feet. One of them asked the other, ‘What is the ailment of this man?’ The other replied, ‘He has been bewitched.’ The first asked, ‘Who has bewitched him?’ The other replied, ‘Lubaid bin Al-A’sam.’ The first one asked, ‘What material has he used?’ The other replied, ‘A comb, the hair gathered on it, and the outer skin of the pollen of the male date-palm.’ The first asked, ‘Where is that?’ The other replied, ‘It is in the well of Dharwan.’

So, the Prophet went out towards the well and then returned and said to me on his return, “Its date-palms (the date-palms near the well) are like the heads of the devils.” I asked, “Did you take out those things with which the magic was worked?” He said, “No, for I have been cured by Allah and I am afraid that this action may spread evil amongst the people.” Later on the well was filled up with earth.

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 89:

Narrated By ‘Aisha: The Prophet continued for such-and-such period imagining that he has slept (had sexual relations) with his wives, and in fact he did not. One day he said, to me, “O ‘Aisha! Allah has instructed me regarding a matter about which I had asked Him. There came to me two men, one of them sat near my feet and the other near my head. The one near my feet, asked the one near my head (pointing at me), ‘What is wrong with this man? The latter replied, ‘He is under the effect of magic.’

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 75, Number 400:

Narrated Hisham’s father: ‘Aisha said, “, so he invoked Allah repeatedly requesting Him to cure him from that magic).”

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 71, Number 660:

Narrated By ‘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 (Sufyan said: That is the hardest kind of magic as it has such an effect).”

The above Hadiths should trouble any sincere Muslims. They clearly state: “Magic was worked on Allah’s Apostle” and “Allah’s Apostle was bewitched.” Muhammad is exulted as the “Seal of the Prophets” in the Qur’an. How could the demons exercise control over the “Seal of the Prophets”? Allah guaranteed in the Qur’an that Satan will have no authority over any of the Servants or Messengers of Allah. Why then was Allah unable to protect Muhammad from the influences of the demons? Allah clearly stated to Satan:

Surah 15:42: “For over My servants no authority shalt thou (Iblis) have, except such as put themselves in the wrong and follow thee.” (Yusuf Ali)

This means that either Muhammad was a follower of Satan or this Qur’anic verse is totally false? Let us look at more damaging evidences from other Islamic sources.

Asbab Al-Nuzul by Ali ibn Ahmad Al-Wahidi, Q. 113-114:

(Say: I seek refuge in the Lord of the Daybreak…) [113:1-5] The commentators of the Qur’an said: “The Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, had a Jewish servant boy. The Jews approached him and kept after him until he gave them some fallen hair from the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, as well as a few teeth from his comb. The Jews used these to cast a spell of black magic on him. The person who was behind this was the Jew Labid ibn al-A’sam. He then put the hair in a well belonging to Banu Zurayq called Dharwan.

The Messenger of Allah, Allah bless him and give him peace, fell ill for a period of six month, during which the hair of his head fell off; he imagined that he slept with his wives when he did not, and was withering away without knowing the reason. As he was one day sleeping, he saw two angels coming to him. One of them sat at his head and the other at his feet. The angel who sat at his head asked: ‘What is wrong with the man?’ The second angel responded: ‘A spell of black magic was cast on him’. (Source:

Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah:

“From B. Zurayq: Labib b. A’sam, who bewitched the apostle of God so that he could not come at his wives.” (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah – The Life of Muhammad –Translated by A. Guillaume, p. 240). Guillaume’s footnotes states that according to a Muslim scholar, the spell lasted for a year.

Lubaid bin Al-A’sam was a Jewish sorcerer from the tribe of Bani Zaraiq. It is important to note that this incident occurred after Muhammad had already migrated to Medina and settled there. Muhammad’s arrival in Medina took place during the thirteenth year of his prophetic career. This means long after he became a Prophet of Allah, he succumbed to the influences of the demons. Even though he is supposed to be the greatest among the Prophets of Allah, he came under demonic influences for nearly a year. He was so bewitched that he imagined he was having sexual relations with his wives, when in reality he did not. Imagine, Allah’s greatest Prophet was bewitched by a kafir.

This event is also recorded in Ibn Sa’d’s “Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir” (Book of the Major Classes), Volume 2, pp. 244 to 248. Here is a relevant quote:

“The apostle of Allah fell ill. He was bewitched about women and food…There were eleven knots in the hair from the comb. The two Surahs no. 113 and 114 were revealed to him. No sooner did the apostle of Allah recited a verse than a knot loosened. When all of them were loosened, he regained his urge for food and women.”

Muslims take pride in proclaiming that Surah 113 and Surah 114 cured Muhammad from the Jewish spell. Do they really have reasons to boast? Consider the following facts: Firstly: The claim that Surah 113 and Surah 114 cured Muhammad from sorcery is in itself an admission that he was bewitched. Otherwise, why was there a need to cure him from the influences of the demons? Secondly: Did not Allah clearly state that Satan will have no authority over any of his Messengers? Thirdly: A true Prophet of God is not even supposed to be affected by sorcery in the first place. The Bible states that the worshippers of the true God will not come under any form of demonic control such as sorcery or magic because of the protective care of Jehovah over them:

Numbers 23:23: “There is no sorcery against Jacob. Nor any magic that can harm Israel.”

A man who fell victim to sorcery while declaring himself to be God’s greatest Prophet can only be a fraud. Finally: According to Muhammad, consuming seven dates in the morning are just as effective as Surah 113 and Surah 114 to protect against magic:

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 71, Number 664:

Narrated Saud: I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “If somebody takes seven ‘Ajwa dates in the morning, neither magic nor poison will hurt him that day.”

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 15, Number 73:

Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah’s Apostle never proceeded (for the prayer) on the Day of ‘Id-ul-Fitr unless he had eaten some dates. Anas also narrated: The Prophet used to eat odd number of dates.

The “odd number of dates” shows how deeply Muhammad was ingrained in superstition. Muslims, notice the words of your Prophet’s prayer.

Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 41, Hadith Number 5036:

Narrated AbulAzhar al-Anmari: When the Apostle of Allah (p.b.u.h.) went to his bed at night, he would say: in the name of Allah, I have laid down my side for Allah. O Allah! Forgive me my sin, drive away my devil, free me from my responsibility, and place me in the highest assembly.

Muslims, please reflect on the following points: What was Muhammad actually doing during the entire year when he imagined he was having sexual intercourse with his wives when he did not? After all, for him to actually believe he was really having sex with his wives when he did not, he must surely be pleasuring himself in some unknown manner. Otherwise, how could he sense that he was actually engaging in sexual intercourse? Is this not somewhat degrading for someone claiming to be a Prophet of God? Why would Allah permit his Prophet to be humiliated in this disgraceful way? How could Allah allow Muhammad to imagine that he was engaging in sex when he did not? Think about it!

The vital lesson that Muslims can learn from all these evidences is the undeniable truth that Muhammad cannot be a Prophet of the true God. It will therefore be wise for Muslims to look elsewhere for their salvation. It is vital for Muslims to examine the life of another Messenger of God–Jesus of Nazareth. We will now consider just one out of the many encounters that Jesus had with the demons:

Mark 1:21-27: They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. And they became amazed at his way of teaching, for there he was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the teachers of the law. Just at that immediate time there was in their synagogue a man under the power of an unclean spirit, and he shouted, saying: What have we to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know exactly who you are, the Holy One of God.” But Jesus rebuked it, saying: “Be silent, and come on out of him!” And the unclean spirit, after shaking him violently and yelling at the top of its voice, came out of him screaming. Well, the people were all so astonished that they began a discussion among themselves, saying: “What is this? A new teaching! He even orders the unclean spirits with authority, and they obey him.”

Contrary to the claims made by Allah in Surah 22:52, Jesus had complete authority over the demons. For the record, none of the Prophets who received inspired messages from Jehovah were ever influenced by Satan. And none of the messages that they received was at any time influenced by Satan. We challenge the Muslims to provide the name of a single Prophet of God in the Bible who spoke the words of Satan? There is not one. Otherwise, Allah would have provided a name to support his claim. Not a single Prophet of God compromised the Word of God to gain converts as Muhammad did.

A true Prophet of God will not fall prey to the demons. Muhammad’s own wife testified that he was bewitched. And she is not his enemy. Given such clear evidences of Muhammad’s subjection to the demons, it is extremely difficult to take this man’s claims as a Prophet seriously. And Jesus warned his followers:

Matthew 24:11: “And many false prophets will arise and mislead many.”

If you have to choose between Muhammad and Jesus, is it not sensible to trust the one who terrified the demons with his very presence rather than the one who came under their influence? Would it be wise to follow a man who came under the inspiration of Satan? A man who spoke the words of Satan? A man who succumbed to black magic? All these evidences incriminating Muhammad are not ours. They are provided by the earliest Islamic sources available on the life of Muhammad. The men who recorded them were devout Muslim scholars. They were the very defenders of Islam. They were genuine Islamic scholars who spent their lives studying, analyzing, and writing about Muhammad and Islam. These indisputable evidences prove that Muhammad is a false Prophet. It would be wise for Muslims to turn to the true God before it is too late. The Bible reveals the identity of the true God by name in the following verse:

Psalms 83:18: “May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth.”
