Raped and Ransacked in the Muslim World

Al-Huwaini: “When I want a sex-slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her”

Plundering the possessions, lives, and dignity of Christians in the Islamic world: is this a random affair, a product of the West’s favorite offenders—poverty, ignorance, grievance—or is it systematic, complete with ideological backing?

Consider the very latest from the Muslim world:

  • Pakistan: Muslim landowners used tractors to plough over a Christian cemetery in order to seize the land illegally. A young Christian mother was raped by six men. “In both cases, police covered up for the culprits.”
  • Iraq: A Christian youth was kidnapped and decapitated: his family could not pay the €70,000 ransom demanded by his abductors. “The murder was meant to intimidate Christians so that in the future they will more readily pay ransom demands.”
  • Egypt: Christian girls continue to be abducted and forced into conversion or concubinage (which amount to the same thing) and “kept as virtual slaves.”

None of this is surprising listening to popular Muslim preacher Abu Ishaq al-Huwaini:

If only we can conduct a jihadist invasion at least once a year or if possible twice or three times, then many people on earth would become Muslims. And if anyone prevents our dawa or stands in our way, then we must kill them or take as hostage and confiscate their wealth, women and children. Such battles will fill the pockets of the Mujahid who can return home with 3 or 4 slaves, 3 or 4 women and 3 or 4 children. This can be a profitable business if you multiply each head by 300 or 400 dirham. This can be like financial shelter whereby a jihadist, in time of financial need, can always sell one of these heads (meaning slavery) [translated by Nonie Darwish; original Arabic recording here].

Huwaini actually made these scandalous assertions some eighteen years ago.  But because they were only recently exposed, he was invited to “clarify” his position on Hikma TV last week. Amazingly, though he began by saying his words were “taken out of context,” he nonetheless reasserted, in even more blunt language, that Islam justifies plundering, enslaving, and raping the infidel.  (Al Youm 7 has the entire interview, excerpts of which I translate below.)

According to Huwaini, after Muslims invade and conquer a non-Muslim nation—in the course of waging an offensive jihad—the properties and persons of those infidels who refuse to convert or pay jizya and live as subjugated dhimmis, are to be seized as ghanima or “spoils of war.”

Huwaini cited the Koran as his authority—boasting that it has an entire chapter named “spoils”—and the sunna of Muhammad, specifically as recorded in the famous Sahih Muslim hadith wherein the prophet ordered the Muslim armies to offer non-Muslims three choices: conversion, subjugation, or death/enslavement.

Huwaini said that infidel captives, the “spoils of war,” are to be distributed among the Muslim combatants (i.e., jihadists) and taken to “the slave market, where slave-girls and concubines are sold.”  He referred to these latter by their dehumanizing name in the Koran, ma malakat aymanukum—“what your right hands possess”—in this context, sex-slaves:  “You go to the market and buy her, and she becomes like your legal mate—though without a contract, a guardian, or any of that stuff—and this is agreed upon by the ulema.”

“In other words,” Huwaini concluded, “when I want a sex-slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her.”

Lest Muslims begin attacking all and sundry, however, Huwaini was careful to stress that Islam forbids Muslims from plundering and enslaving fellow Muslims—including “heretical” Shias.  He used the Iran-Iraq war as an example, saying that a Sunni man is not permitted to enslave and abuse a Shia woman, “for she is still a Muslim and thus considered free.”

Unfortunately Huwaini’s position is not “radical.”  One is reminded of when Sheikh Gamal Qutb was asked on live TV if Islam permits men to rape their female captives.  The one-time grand mufti of Islam’s most authoritative university, Al Azhar—the institution that once gave us the “adult breast-feeding” fatwa—refused to answer and, when pressed, became hostile and stormed off the set.

Let us now return to the atrocities that opened this article and ask: In light of the above, is it any wonder that Christians under Islam are routinely raped and ransacked, even as the “humanitarian” West yawns?

    Raped and murdered!
    In 1998, Jakarta, Indonesia, I was on my way home after the company I work for had dismish all the employees due to the riots that started at once all over Jakarta, I went to fetch my girl friend first and head home, on my way home I saw a group of muslims at least 50 strong shouting "Allah Akbar, some others shouting "Cinaa… Cinaa…"(means chinese), there are just to many of them for me to recognize if there are any chinese among them, but I didn't take chance, I turn back my motorcycle – even though this is a one way road – and fled, my heart beating like a thunder and I really fortunate to escape those genocidal muslims. One my friends were not so lucky though, they burnt her house, later her family found her hiding in toilet and she was burnt to dead in there.
    That is Islam for you.

  • Abu yousuf almasry

    What a liars! he didn't said that in this meaning and it's not fair to convey an article from the others who hate our Islam, you should listen to his recordable issue then translate it to your language then understand it then review our teachings of Islam but you are not fair as the subject owner too

    • ROBERT

      granted one article could conceivably be mistranslated/interpreted. On the other hand this has also been used as excuses to hide the truth. How about we look at ALL the facts and then arrive at the conclusion what Islam is all about? I'd just give one fact: 90% of all terrorism committed around the world is by Muslims. Does this have something to do with Islamic belief or mis-translation, mis-interpretation? You can look beyond Islam at the truth. But I am not holding my breath.

      Slowly and surely the whole planet is waking up to the fact that muslim or Pure muslim is a term for a very very evil person.
      "Women should be exposed to the day light three times in their lives. When they are born, when they are married and when they die." – islamic saying.
      "Our mullah told us that when we carried out our suicide attacks, all the people around us would die, but we would stay alive"
      If muslims could leave islam without being extinguished by other muslims how many muslims would be left on the planet ? Answer : Zero or none. It is only the threat to one's life that keeps islam evil and populated. These scared muslim slaves of invented allah are doomed forever in the dead hands of the madman who invented allah and brought a curse on everything and everyone islam touches. Islam haram. Repeat after me …islam is not halal , islam is haram. Understand?

      • dr.music

        Islam is the problem. Islam has to be abolished. As long as even one human is a muslim this planet will never see peace. Take my word for it.
        Islam is the problem. Islam makes people evil. This is a fact. Evil people are a big drain to our planet’s resources like a raging fire. For our planet’s limited resources and our safety we should extinguish each and every fire once we have identified it as evil. Feeding a fire is suicide and not good for our planet’s resources.
        So in the end what will happen to islam? Will islam just vanish? Islam has to be abolished.

          And how will they realise that islam is haram?

          Only when the SUPREME COURTS start questioning the demented koran loudly and in full hearing of the planet will muslims see mohammad’s mad trip. The answer is in and by our SUPREME COURTS in the very end.

      Seriously Abu, Unlike the brain washing, propaganda, and hatred that goes on in the Arab world for anyone who is not Islamic, here we are free to live, think, and speak without worrying about being be-headed, raped, etc. I mean look at you running your mouth — would I get that same respect from the Arab world? Just saying…. but here
      even people of Islam have rights — unlike what is done to us in the Arab world. So, perhaps you should either educate yourself about Islam, or you should stop thinking that people in this country are not wise to you, your allies, and your beliefs; we are. Really; please Abu do not underestimate us!

    @Robert

    mate 90% of all terrorism in the world is not subjected by Muslims but 100% of all terrorism in the world are subjected by Politics. Religion is just used to scare the usual blonde, think about it which is more scary a guy holding a gun and looking cool on tv or a bearded guy covered in white screaming in a language no one understands holding a chicken on the other hand. All i am trying to say is when the media wants to portray something as evil they can do it very well, not denying that there are extreme nutcases from the muslim community but you tell me which community doesn't have it? every community does but its just not that much advertised. also coming back topic the translation is utter BS. read the real Quran translated by a person who actually knows arabic and you will see these people quoting the Quran, are full of BS. Much learning.

      In Sahih al-Bukhari, the most canonical hadith collection, Muhammad said,

      "Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him."

      Various other canonical hadiths attest that Muhammad called for death to those who leave Islam. That's why even today all the schools of Islamic law prescribe death for apostasy from Islam.

    • traeh

      On page 222 (326 in the Arabic) of the earliest Muslim biography of Muhammad, he affirms that those who do not follow him will be slaughtered:

      Abu jahl said to them: "Muhammad alleges that if you follow him you will be kings of the Arabs and the Persians. Then after death you will be raised to gardens like those of the Jordan. But if you do not follow him you will be slaughtered, and when you are raised from the dead you will be burned in the fire of hell." The apostle [Muhammad] came out to them with a handful of dust saying: "I do say that."

      In core Islamic texts, Muhammad says your "lives and property" are not safe from him unless you become a Muslim

      In Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, the two most canonical hadith collections:

      Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25:

      Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

      Allah's Apostle said: "I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform all that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah."

      Sahih Muslim, Book 031, Number 5917:

      …Ali went a bit and then halted and did not look about and then said in a loud voice: Allah's Messenger, on what issue should I fight with the people? Thereupon he (the Prophet) said: Fight with them until they bear testimony to the fact that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his Messenger, and when they do that then their blood and their riches are inviolable from your hands but what is justified by law and their reckoning is with Allah.

      In the earliest Muslim biography of Muhammad, pages 511-517 (758-766 in the Arabic) we learn how in Khaybar Muhammad ordered the torture of a man in order to get hold of a treasure, then beheaded the man, and how that night Muhammad took into his private tent for consummation of "marriage" the tortured man's widow, whose father and other male relatives Muhammad had just killed:

      Kinana b. al-Rabi', who had the custody of the treasure of the B. al-Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came (Tabari says "was brought") to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle [Muhammad] said to Kinana, 'Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?' he said Yes. The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle [Muhammad] gave orders to al-Zubayr b. al-'Awwam, 'Torture him until you extract what he has,' so he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head in revenge for his brother Mahmud. [-- page 515 (763-764 in the Arabic)]

      The apostle took captives…among whom was Safiya d. Huyayy b. Akhtab who had been the wife of Kinana b. al-Rabi’ b. Abu’l-Huqayq, and two cousins of hers. The apostle chose Safiya for himself. [-- page 511 (758 in the Arabic)]

      When the apostle married Safiya in Khaybar or on the way, she having been beautified and combed, and got in a fit state for the apostle by Umm Sulaym d. Milhan mother of Anas b. Malik, the apostle passed the night with her in a tent of his. Abu Ayyub, Khalid b. Zayd brother of B. al-Najjar passed the night girt with his sword, guarding the apostle and going round the tent until in the morning the apostle saw him and asked him what he meant by his action. He replied, ‘I was afraid for you with this woman for you have killed her father, her husband, and her people, and till recently she was in unbelief, so I was afraid for you on her account.’ They allege that the apostle said ‘O God, preserve Abu Ayyub as he spent the night preserving me.’

      From the essay "Communism and Islam" in International Affairs, Vol. 30, No. 1 (Jan., 1954), pp. 1-12, here is Bernard Lewis on Islam's inherent authoritarianism:

      I turn now from the accidental to the essential factors, to those deriving from the very nature of Islamic society, tradition, and thought. The first of these is the authoritarianism, perhaps we may even say the totalitarianism, of the Islamic political tradition…Many attempts have been made to show that Islam and democracy are identical — attempts usually based on a misunderstanding of Islam or democracy or both…In point of fact, except for the early caliphate, when the anarchic individualism of tribal Arabia was still effective, the political history of Islam is one of almost unrelieved autocracy…[I]t was authoritarian, often arbitrary, sometimes tyrannical. There are no parliaments or representative assemblies of any kind, no councils or communes, no chambers of nobility or estates, no municipalities in the history of Islam; nothing but the sovereign power, to which the subject owed complete and unwavering obedience as a religious duty imposed by the Holy Law. In the great days of classical Islam this duty was only owed to the lawfully appointed caliph, as God's vicegerent on earth and head of the theocratic community, and then only for as long as he upheld the law; but with the decline of the caliphate and the growth of military dictatorship, Muslim jurists and theologians accommodated their teachings to the changed situation and extended the religious duty of obedience to any effective authority, however impious, however barbarous. For the last thousand years, the political thinking of Islam has been dominated by such maxims as "tyranny is better than anarchy" and "whose power is established, obedience to him is incumbent."
      …Quite obviously, the Ulama of Islam are very different from the Communist Party. Nevertheless, on closer examination, we find certain uncomfortable resemblances. Both groups profess a totalitarian doctrine, with complete and final answers to all questions on heaven and earth; the answers are different in every respect, alike only in their finality and completeness, and in the contrast they offer with the eternal questioning of Western man. Both groups offer to their members and followers the agreeable sensation of belonging to a community of believers, who are always right, as against an outer world of unbelievers, who are always wrong. Both offer an exhilarating feeling of mission, of purpose, of being engaged in a collective adventure to accelerate the historically inevitable victory of the true faith over the infidel evil-doers. The traditional Islamic division of the world into the House of Islam and the House of War, two necessarily opposed groups, of which- the first has the collective obligation of perpetual struggle against the second, also has obvious parallels in the Communist view of world affairs. There again, the content of belief is utterly different, but the aggressive fanaticism of the believer is the same. The humorist who summed up the Communist creed as "There is no God and Karl Marx is his Prophet!" was laying his finger on a real affinity. The call to a Communist Jihad, a Holy War for the faith — a new faith, but against the self-same Western Christian enemy — might well strike a responsive note.

      From page 464 (690 in the Arabic) of the earliest Muslim biography of Muhammad, Muhammad presides over the beheading of 600 to 900 Jews:

      Then [the Banu Qurayza tribe] surrendered, and the apostle [Muhammad] confined them in Medina in the quarter of d. al-Harith, a woman of B. al-Najjar. Then the apostle went out to the market of Medina (which is still its market today) and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches. Among them was the enemy of Allah Huyayy b. Akhtab and Ka`b b. Asad their chief. There were 600 or 700 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900. As they were being taken out in batches to the apostle they asked Ka`b what he thought would be done with them. He replied, 'Will you never understand? Don't you see that the summoner never stops and those who are taken away do not return? By Allah it is death!' This went on until the apostle made an end of them.

      On page 369 (554 in the Arabic) of the earliest Muslim biography of Muhammad, Muhammad says "kill any Jew who falls into your power":

      It's a "beautiful" story of two brothers, Muhayyissa and Huwayyisa: (To avoid confusing the two brothers, keep in mind that the brother whose name begins with M is the Murderer in the story.)

      "The apostle [Muhammad] said, ‘Kill any Jew that falls into your power.’ Thereupon Muhayyisa bin Masud leapt upon Ibn Sunayna, a Jewish merchant with whom they had social and business relations, and killed him. Huwayyisa was not a Muslim at the time though he was the elder brother. When Muhayyisa killed [the Jewish merchant] Huwayyisa began to beat [his brother Muhayyisa], saying, 'You enemy of God, did you kill him when much of the fat on your belly comes from his wealth?' Muhayyisa answered, 'Had the one who ordered me to kill him ordered me to kill you I would have cut your head off.'…[Huwayyisa] replied, 'By God, if Muhammad had ordered you to kill me would you have killed me?' [Muhayyisa] said, 'Yes, by God, had he ordered me to cut off your head I would have done so.' [Huwayyisa] exclaimed, "By God, a religion which can bring you to this is marvellous!' and [Huwayyisa] became a Muslim."

      In core Islamic texts, Muhammad says that one day the very trees and stones will help Muslims to kill Jews.

      He says it both in Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, Islam's two most canonical hadith collections:

      Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 56, Number 791:

      Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
      I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The Jews will fight with you, and you will be given victory over them so that a stone will say, 'O Muslim! There is a Jew behind me; kill him!' "

      Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 176:

      Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
      Allah's Apostle [Muhammad] said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, 'O 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.' "

      Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:

      Narrated Abu Huraira:
      Allah's Apostle [Muhammad] said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

      Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 6981:

      Ibn 'Umar reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them until even a stone would say: Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew (hiding himself behind me); kill him.

      In core Islamic texts, Muhammad allows his soldiers to rape captive women:

      From Sahih Muslim, a canonical hadith collection:
      Book 008, Number 3371:

      Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa'id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): 0 Abu Sa'id, did you hear Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) mentioning al-'azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi'l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing 'azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid-conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah's Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah's Messenger [Muhammad] (may peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.

      Notice that Muhammad did not say, "do not rape your captive women." He merely says it does not matter if his soldiers withdraw before ejaculation, because souls destined by Allah to be born will be born regardless.

      From Sahih al-Bukhari, the most canonical hadith collection:
      Volume 5, Book 59, Number 459:

      Narrated Ibn Muhairiz:
      I entered the Mosque and saw Abu Said Al-Khudri and sat beside him and asked him about Al-Azl (i.e. coitus interruptus). Abu Said said, "We went out with Allah's Apostle for the Ghazwa [battle at which Muhammad was present] of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So when we intended to do coitus interruptus, we said, 'How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allah's Apostle [Muhammad] who is present among us?" We asked (him) about it and he said, 'It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist."

      Again notice that, in answer to his soldiers' queries Muhammad doesn't say "You must not force your captives to have intercourse with you." He says only that coitus interruptus, withdrawing prior to ejaculation, is pointless, because souls predestined to exist will exist regardless.

      Again in Sahih al-Bukhari:
      Volume 7, Book 62, Number 137:

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

      Thus Muhammad does not forbid his men to rape their captives, but merely says that it's better not to do coitus interruptus. His men were to keep going till coitus was complete.

      "IT IS PERMISSIBLE TO HAVE SEXUAL INTERCOURSE WITH A CAPTIVE WOMAN AFTER SHE IS PURIFIED (OF MENSES OR DELIVERY). IN CASE SHE HAS A HUSBAND, HER MARRIAGE IS ABROGATED AFTER SHE BECOMES CAPTIVE"

      The hadiths in Chapter 29 say that after a victory for the Muslims at the Battle of Hanain, and in response to the fact that Muhammad's soldiers "seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women," Muhammad produced Qur'an 4:24's statement about slave girls/captive women,

      And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess…

The Prophet added, "Certainly I decided to order the Mu'adh-dhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqama [second call to prayer] and order a man to lead the prayer and then take a fire flame to burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer along with their houses."

By Him, in Whose Hands my soul is, if anyone of them had known that he would get a bone covered with good meat or two (small) pieces of meat present in between two ribs, he would have turned up for the ‘Isha’ prayer.’[fifth of the five daily prayers]

      A man from the tribe of Bani Aslam came to Allah's Apostle and informed him that he had committed illegal sexual intercourse and bore witness four times against himself. Allah's Apostle [Muhammad] ordered him to be stoned to death as he was a married Person.

      Volume 8, Book 82, Number 809:
      Narrated Ibn 'Umar:
      A Jew and a Jewess were brought to Allah's Apostle on a charge of committing an illegal sexual intercourse. The Prophet asked them. "What is the legal punishment (for this sin) in your Book (Torah)?" They replied, "Our priests have innovated the punishment of blackening the faces with charcoal and Tajbiya." 'Abdullah bin Salam said, "O Allah's Apostle, tell them to bring the Torah." The Torah was brought, and then one of the Jews put his hand over the Divine Verse of the Rajam (stoning to death) and started reading what preceded and what followed it. On that, Ibn Salam said to the Jew, "Lift up your hand." Behold! The Divine Verse of the Rajam was under his hand. So Allah's Apostle [Muhammad] ordered that the two (sinners) be stoned to death, and so they were stoned. Ibn 'Umar added: So both of them were stoned at the Balat and I saw the Jew sheltering the Jewess.

      Volume 8, Book 82, Number 813:
      Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
      When Ma'iz bin Malik came to the Prophet (in order to confess), the Prophet said to him, "Probably you have only kissed (the lady), or winked, or looked at her?" He said, "No, O Allah's Apostle!" The Prophet said, using no euphemism, "Did you have sexual intercourse with her?" The narrator added: At that, (i.e. after his confession) the Prophet [Muhammad] ordered that he be stoned (to death).

      Volume 8, Book 82, Number 815:
      Narrated Abu Huraira and Zaid bin Khalid:
      While we were with the Prophet [Muhammad], a man stood up and said (to the Prophet), "I beseech you by Allah, that you should judge us according to Allah's Laws." Then the man's opponent who was wiser than him, got up saying (to Allah's Apostle) "Judge us according to Allah's Law and kindly allow me (to speak)." The Prophet said, "'Speak." He said, "My son was a laborer working for this man and he committed an illegal sexual intercourse with his wife, and I gave one-hundred sheep and a slave as a ransom for my son's sin. Then I asked a learned man about this case and he informed me that my son should receive one hundred lashes and be exiled for one year, and the man's wife should be stoned to death." The Prophet [Muhammad] said, "By Him in Whose Hand my soul is, I will judge you according to the Laws of Allah. Your one-hundred sheep and the slave are to be returned to you, and your son has to receive one-hundred lashes and be exiled for one year. O Unais! Go to the wife of this man, and if she confesses, then stone her to death." Unais went to her and she confessed. He then stoned her to death.

      Volume 8, Book 82, Number 817:
      [excerpt from long hadith]Narrated Ibn Abbas:
      …Allah sent Muhammad with the Truth and revealed the Holy Book to him, and among what Allah revealed, was the Verse of the Rajam (the stoning of married person (male & female) who commits illegal sexual intercourse, and we did recite this Verse and understood and memorized it. Allah's Apostle [Muhammad] did carry out the punishment of stoning and so did we after him. I am afraid that after a long time has passed, somebody will say, 'By Allah, we do not find the Verse of the Rajam in Allah's Book,' and thus they will go astray by leaving an obligation which Allah has revealed. And the punishment of the Rajam is to be inflicted to any married person (male & female), who commits illegal sexual intercourse, if the required evidence is available or there is conception or confession…

      In Sahih Muslim, a canonical hadith collection, Muhammad explains how Muslims in a position of strength should use holy war to impose three alternatives on non-Muslims:

      Book 019, Number 4294

      …the Messenger of Allah [Muhammad] (may peace be upon him)…would say: Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war…When you meet your enemies who are polytheists ["polytheists" to Islamic scholars generally includes Christians and Jews, because of, for example, Quran 9:30] invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withold yourself from doing them any harm. [1] Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. …[2] If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya [protection money non-Muslims must pay to Muslim overlords for the right to live, and as an indication of non-Muslims' "state of subjection" spoken of in Qur'an 9:29]. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. [3] If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them…

      From a core Islamic text, a hadith in which Muhammad said there is to be no punishment for murdering someone who insults Muhammad

      From Sunan Abu-Dawud, a canonical hadith collection:
      Book 38, Number 4348:

      Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas:

      A blind man had a slave-mother [a slave who bore children for him] who used to abuse the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and disparage him. He [the blind man] forbade her but she did not stop. He rebuked her but she did not give up her habit. One night she began to slander the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and abuse him. So he [the blind man] took a dagger, placed it on her belly, pressed it, and killed her. A child who came between her legs was smeared with the blood that was there. When the morning came, the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) was informed about it.

      He assembled the people and said: I adjure by Allah the man who has done this action and I adjure him by my right to him that he should stand up. Jumping over the necks of the people and trembling the man stood up.

      He sat before the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and said: Apostle of Allah! I am her master; she used to abuse you and disparage you. I forbade her, but she did not stop, and I rebuked her, but she did not abandon her habit. I have two sons like pearls from her, and she was my companion. Last night she began to abuse and disparage you. So I took a dagger, put it on her belly and pressed it till I killed her.

      Thereupon the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Oh be witness, no retaliation is payable for her blood.

      Another canonical hadith:
      Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 38, Number 4349:

      Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib:

      A Jewess used to abuse the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and disparage him. A man strangled her till she died. The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) declared that no recompense was payable for her blood.

      Canonical hadiths say Muhammad (in his fifties) consummated his marriage to Aisha when she was nine (lunar) years old.

      A lunar year is about 355 days long, which means that Aisha may have been several months short of her ninth birthday.

      Some examples from Bukhari, which is the most canonical hadith collection:

      Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64:

      Narrated 'Aisha:

      that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

      —————————————————————————————–

      Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 65:

      Narrated 'Aisha:

      that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old. Hisham said: I have been informed that 'Aisha remained with the Prophet for nine years (i.e. till his death)."
      —————————————————————————————–

      Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 88:

      Narrated 'Ursa:

      The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with 'Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).
      —————————————————————————————–

      Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 236:

      Narrated Hisham's father:

      Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married 'Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.

    • traeh

      Had Aisha reached puberty at age 9 when Muhammad, in his fifties, consummated the marriage with her? No, she had not, according to core Islamic texts

      From Sahih Muslim, a canonical hadith collection:
      Book 008, Number 3311:

      'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and she was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.

      In the next hadith, we learn that playing with dolls is only permitted for prepubescent children

      From Sahih al-Bukhari, a canonical hadith collection:
      Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151:

      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)

      (The parenthetical statement is not mine — it's in University of Southern California's Sahih al-Bukhari online, as you can see by clicking on the link above.)

      And then of course there is the increasingly infamous Qur'an verse 65:4 that specifies a waiting period for prepubescent and post-menopausal females to remarry after being divorced. There is no waiting period if the marriage was not consummated (See Quran 33:49). Thus Qur'an 65:4 assumes consummation with prepubescent girls.

      Qur'an Chapter 65, Verse 4:

      And (as for) those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, if you have a doubt, their prescribed time shall be three months, and of those too who have not had their courses; and (as for) the pregnant women, their prescribed time is that they lay down their burden; and whoever is careful of (his duty to) Allah He will make easy for him his affair.

    • traeh

      Islamic scholars' explanations of Qur'an 65:4 show that the verse assumes marriage, divorce, and remarriage of prepubescent girls

      Here is the explanation of Qur'an 65:4 from Ibn Abbas, who was one of the companions of Muhammad. Ibn Abbas affirms that the Qur'an refers to the waiting period for prepubescent girls to remarry after divorce.

      Ibn Abbas on Qur'an 65:4

      (And for such of your women as despair of menstruation) because of old age, (if ye doubt) about their waiting period, (their period (of waiting) shall be three months) upon which another man asked: “O Messenger of Allah! What about the waiting period of those who do not have menstruation because they are too young?” (along with those who have it not) because of young age, their waiting period is three months. Another man asked: “what is the waiting period for those women who are pregnant?” (And for those with child) i.e. those who are pregnant, (their period) their waiting period (shall be till they bring forth their burden) their child. (And whosoever keepeth his duty to Allah) and whoever fears Allah regarding what he commands him, (He maketh his course easy for him) He makes his matter easy; and it is also said this means: He will help him to worship Him well.

      Some eight hundred years later appeared the Tafsir al-Jalalayn, one of the most widely used interpretations of the Qur'an. Tafsir al-Jalalayn also tells us that Qur'an 65:4 speaks of waiting period for divorce of prepubescent girls:

      And [as for] those of your women who (read allā’ī or allā’i in both instances) no longer expect to menstruate, if you have any doubts, about their waiting period, their prescribed [waiting] period shall be three months, and [also for] those who have not yet menstruated, because of their young age, their period shall [also] be three months — both cases apply to other than those whose spouses have died; for these [latter] their period is prescribed in the verse: they shall wait by themselves for four months and ten [days] [Q. 2:234]. And those who are pregnant, their term, the conclusion of their prescribed [waiting] period if divorced or if their spouses be dead, shall be when they deliver. And whoever fears God, He will make matters ease for him, in this world and in the Hereafter.

      65:4, according to Wahidi's respected explanation of the Qur'an:

      (And for such of your women as despair of menstruation…) [65:4]. Said Muqatil: “When the verse (Women who are divorced shall wait, keeping themselves apart…), Kallad ibn al-Nu‘man ibn Qays al-Ansari said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, what is the waiting period of the woman who does not menstruate and the woman who has not menstruated yet? And what is the waiting period of the pregnant woman?’ And so Allah, exalted is He, revealed this verse”. Abu Ishaq al-Muqri’ informed us> Muhammad ibn ‘Abd Allah ibn Hamdun> Makki ibn ‘Abdan> Abu’l-Azhar> Asbat ibn Muhammad> Mutarrif> Abu ‘Uthman ‘Amr ibn Salim who said: “When the waiting period for divorced and widowed women was mentioned in Surah al-Baqarah, Ubayy ibn Ka‘b said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, some women of Medina are saying: there are other women who have not been mentioned!’ He asked him: ‘And who are they?’ He said: ‘Those who are too young [such that they have not started menstruating yet], those who are too old [whose menstruation has stopped] and those who are pregnant’. And so this verse (And for such of your women as despair of menstruation…) was revealed”.

    It amazes how many are quick to defend Islam who have never turned one page of the Koran. But let us not just look at the book, let us consider the actions of it's followers. If Islam is so great what has it done for those who follow it, or to be more exact, are enslaved by it. After studying the 3 books which Muslims claim as scripture it is easy to see why they behave like barbaric hordes driven by envy. The majority of text in these books is not about how you can improve your life but is dedicated to defaming non-Muslims, those who are trying to make this world a better place. There is only one conclusion that can be reached and that is that your "Allah" is none other than Lucifer and Muhammad is his faithful servant and on any given night you can hear the screams of Muslims emanating from the depths of hell.

THE EVIL CULT OF ISLAM WAS FOUNDED BY A SUB-HUMAN MONSTER CALLED MOE-HAM-MAD, HE BROUGHT MAYHEM AND MADNESS WHEREVER HE WENT. HIS BLOODY CONQUESTS ENSLAVED, MANKIND AND CONDEMED HIS FOLLOWER TO PERPETUAL POVERTY OF THE MIND AND SOUL. THERE MAY BE GOOD MUSLIMS THAT WANT NO BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS BUT BEING IN THE CULT ASSURES THEIR COMPLACENCY. iSLAM MUST BE IRADICATED AND MUSLIMS NEED TO RENOUNCE THIER EVIL CULT AND JOIN CHRISTIANITY OR JUDAESM TO WORSHIP WITH DIGNETY THE GOD OF ABRAHAM.

To this day, the One Creator, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, sender of the Messiah, places before each person the opportunity to choose life or death. We can see the fruit of the choices made.

    All sides have stories. The more I information I read about Islam and the people who follow the teaching, the more I hate it. I am an atheist. I never had much reason or need to tell people my stance on religion. Now, with all the Muslim crap being brought out to light. This is not a religion but a political cult. A nasty ugly way of life.

    Do some research using "first cousin marriage Islam" and you will discover that Muslims are very much inbred, terrifyingly so. In Pakistan, about fifty percent of new marriages registered are between first cousins. This has been going on for more than a thousand years.

  • MickT

    The great contradiction of Islam is that Islam teaches that Jesus is only a prophet and muslims are to love and revere Mary and Jesus. Islam does NOT teach that Jesus is the Son of God. In fact, the Koran teaches that Christians are infidels because they believe Jesus is the Son of God. The bible is clear, Mary conceived Jesus through the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, "I and the Father are one". How can Jesus be a prophet of God as Islam says, if Jesus told a lie, that he and the Father are one? He cannot! Therefore, the Islamic view of Jesus is wrong. Since Mohammed taught that Jesus is only a prophet and NOT the Son of God, then Mohammed is the liar and a false prophet. His teachings torment the world even today. For the truth, read this… http://www.gty.org/Resources/Articles/A335
