The Innocent Prophet full Release

 In this viewer's  opinion, an hour is not sufficient to plunge the depths of the life of Muhammad.  Perhaps too much time was spent on his childhood and not enough on his prophetic career. 

    Concerning brigandry before 610, I recall seeing nothing to suggest it.  Running Kahdija's camel caravans and trading should have kept him too busy for that.  The brigandry began after the hijira, with the Battle of Badr.

    As for Moe convincing Kahdija that he was a Prophet, I find it to be a reversal of the story told in the generally accepted sources.  He was terrified by the encounter in the cave and ran home to hide under her skirt.  His wife comforted him with assurance that he had encountered an angel, not a demon in the cave. 

    The issue of mercenary motivation should have been given more detail as it was in this blog post on the subject:  .

    The issue of false prophecy deserves detailed exposure. Moe's child bride gives us an earful in Sahih Bukhari 6.60.311. Those and other issues received more detailed coverage in my documentation of "The Innocence of Muslims":    .See also: .

    The curious viewer who wishes more detailed information about the life and works of Moe should read at least one of the following books.

the Truth About Moe?

This video has been available for a year with very little notice.  It deserves a wider audience.  Someone posted it on Facebook.  In order to make verification easier for viewers, I went through the video frame by frame and extracted the urls.

    I prefer a different Qur'an source, and am linking to it.  I retained links to the USC-MSA database, although frequent site changes break them. I had to update them. 

    The Al-Meshkat links are to downloads, some of which are probably large Zipped archives.  If those are pdf files, and if they are text, not scanned images, you may be able to open them in your browser and use Google Translate, but it does not work very well on Arabic.  You will need to translate the pages to find the download links. 

    The video includes links to Hishham's Rescension of the Sira. I have added links to Guillaume's The Life of Muhammad. In previous attempts, I was unable to locate Hajar on the molestation of Ali's sons.  This time I got the link right, but the Google Translation could not be related to the content described in the video. 

    The bit about porking Hafsa's slave girl is documented in my post documenting The Innocence of Muslims:
My preemptive documentation for The Innocent Prophet is here:  The latest press release indicates that it will be released on schedule Dec. 14.

Innocent Prophet: Divine Mission or Self-Proclaimed Profiteer?

In the trailer for The Innocent Prophet, Imran Firasat propounds a few questions concerning the founder of Islam; was Muhammad:

  • a Prophet sent by God
  • a child molester
  • an assassin
  • a self proclaimed Prophet

    This blog post is uttered and published prior to the release of the full documentary in order to provide  prospective viewers with authentic sources of information about Muhammad so that they will be able to prepare themselves as informed viewers able to judge the veracity of the documentary. 

    The author presumes that the documentary will be narrative, not dramatic.  It is considered likely that some of :questions propounded by Pastor Terry Jones prior to International Judge Muhammad Day may be included in the documentary. 

Moe: sent by God or False Prophet?

biblical reference

14:36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only? 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

14:38 But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.

14:39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 15:5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 15:6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

15:7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.

15:8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

15:9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

15:11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.

15:12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? 15:13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 15:14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

15:15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

15:16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: 15:17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

15:18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.

15:19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

    (King James Bible, 1 Corinthians)

4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
1 John

2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 2:7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 2:8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

2:11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.

2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 2:13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; 2:14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 2:16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

2:17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

2:18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.

2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    (King James Bible, 2 Peter)

7:37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.

    (King James Bible, Acts)


6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

    (King James Bible, John)

Surah Al-A'raf  7:157 makes wild claims that Moe is foretold in the Bible as the final Prophet. 

7:157. Those who follow the Messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write (i.e.Muhammad ) whom they find written with them in the Taurât (Torah) (Deut, xviii, 15) and the Injeel (Gospel) (John xiv, 16) , - he commands them for Al-Ma'rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm has ordained); and forbids them from Al-Munkar (i.e. disbelief, polytheism of all kinds, and all that Islâm has forbidden); he allows them as lawful At-Taiyibât [(i.e. all good and lawful) as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.], and prohibits them as unlawful Al-Khabâ'ith (i.e. all evil and unlawful as regards things, deeds, beliefs, persons, foods, etc.), he releases them from their heavy burdens (of Allâh's Covenant), and from the fetters (bindings) that were upon them. So those who believe in him (Muhammad ), honour him, help him, and follow the light (the Qur'ân) which has been sent down with him, it is they who will be successful .

7:158. Say (O Muhammad ): "O mankind! Verily, I am sent to you all as the Messenger of Allâh - to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He); It is He Who gives life and causes death. So believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), the Prophet who can neither read nor write (i.e. Muhammad ) who believes in Allâh and His Words [(this Qur'ân), the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and also Allâh's Word: "Be!" - and he was, i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary),], and follow him so that you may be guided. "

    Examine the relevant context of Deut. 18:15: [Mentioned by the translators in a parenthetical comment.]

When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto theLord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.

14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lordthy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

15 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

16 According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.

17 And the Lord said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.

18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken?

22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which theLord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

Verse 9 exposes the  location: the text is relevant to the conquest of Canaan, not to Arabia thousands of years later.  Verse 15 reveals that the Prophet would be like them, among them; one of their brethren: A Jew, not an Arab. 

    Vrrses 15 & 18 inform us that the promised Prophet will be a Jew, not an Arab, that disqualifies Moe, his mother was not a Jew.  Verse 20 curses the prophet who presumes to falsely attribute words to YHWH or speaks for other gods.  Moe spoke for Allah, not YHWH, and he allowed Satan to insert falsehood, as I will show you later. 

    John 14:16 was also mentioned parenthetically by the translators.  Islam is a lie, promulgated by a liar and propagated by liars; protected by a web of lies.  By displaying the context of the cited verse I will disprove the assertion that Moe is the comforter promised by Jesus.  By this evidence you may know that Moe is a liar and Islam is a lie, but this is not the only proof.

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.

26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Verse 16 promises the sending of the comforter. Verse 17 identifies the comforter as the Spirit of Truth.  In verse 18, Jesus tells his disciples that he will come to them.  Verse 26 identifies the Comforter as the Holy Ghost, one of three manifestations of deity. 

    Thus two of Islam's favorite lies are exposed: Moe is neither the promised Prophet nor the Comforter; Jesus is.  Moe is obviously a false prophet.  In 1 Corinthian 14:36, Paul tells the recipients of the letter to judge prophets by its contents.  He reiterates the Gospel of Christ and sets it as the standard by which prophets are to be measured.  But Moe has Allah, in Surah An-Nisa' denying Christ's crucifixion, death & resurrection. 

4:157. And because of their saying (in boast), "We killed Messiah 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allâh," - but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of 'Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) ]:

    According to Moe, Allah has no son and Jesus is only his slave. By the standard set by Paul, Moe was a false prophet. 

23:91. No son (or offspring or children) did Allâh beget, nor is there any ilâh (god) along with Him; (if there had been many gods), behold, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have tried to overcome others! Glorified be Allâh above all that they attribute to Him!

4:171. O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Do not exceed the limits in your religion, nor say of Allâh aught but the truth. The Messiah 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), was (no more than) a Messenger of Allâh and His Word, ("Be!" - and he was) which He bestowed on Maryam (Mary) and a spirit (Rûh) created by Him; so believe in Allâh and His Messengers. Say not: "Three (trinity)!" Cease! (it is) better for you. For Allâh is (the only) One Ilâh (God), Glory be to Him (Far Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth. And Allâh is All­Sufficient as a Disposer of affairs.

4:172. The Messiah will never be proud to reject to be a slave to Allâh, nor the angels who are near (to Allâh). And whosoever rejects His worship and is proud, then He will gather them all together unto Himself.

    Moe goes further with his prophecy: he puts Jesus in the role of anti-Christ: fighting Jews & Christians for Islam, breaking the cross, destroying Christianity and ruling the world by the Qur'an.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4310:

Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.

    There is more: Moe depicts Jesus as being inferior to himself and claimed to be his paternal half brother.

how was the Qur'an revealed to Moe?

    The stories of Moe's inspiration & revelations are spread in the hadith: 

Moe feared insanity

Ibn Sa'd's hadith Volume 1, Parts 1.45.5

Yahya 1bn Abbad and `Affan Ibn Muslim informed us; they said: Hammad Ibn Salamah informed us; he said: Ammar Ibn Abi `Ammar informed us; (variation) Yahya Ibn `Abbád (only) said: Hammad Ibn Salamah said: I think (he narrated) on the authority of Ibn `Abbas:

Verily, the Prophet, may Allah bless him, said: O Khadijah I hear sounds and see light and I fear I am mad. She said: 0 son of `Abd Allah ! Allah will not do it with you. Then she approached Waraqah Ibn Nawfal and related (the incident) to him. He said: If he is true, then he is nomos as in the case of Moses. If I am alive, when he is commissioned (to prophethood) I shall support him, help him and believe in him

Moe was suicidal

Volume 1, Parts 1.46.3


Muhammad Ibn `Umar informed us; he said: Ibrahim [P. 131] lbn Muhammad lbn Abi Musa related to me on the authority of Dawud Ibn al-Husayn, he on the authority of Ibn Ghatfan Ibn Tarif, he on the authority of Ibn 'Abbas:

Verily, after the first revelation to the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, that came at Hira, it (the coming of revelations) remained suspended for a few days; since he did not see Gabriel, he was much grieved; he went to Thabir and at another time to Hïra with the intention of throwing himself down. When the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, was intending to do this from one of these mountains he heard a sound coming from the heaven. The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, paused for a moment because of the thunderous sound, then he raised his head and lo ! it was Gabriel seated in a chair between the earth and the sky. He was saying: 0 Muhammad! Thou art surely the Apostle of Allah, and I am Gabriel. The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, returned, and Allah had cooled his eye and strengthened his heart; then revelations followed one after the other.

Satanic Verses

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

22:53. That He (Allâh) may make what is thrown in by Shaitân (Satan) a trial for those in whose hearts is a disease (of hypocrisy and disbelief) and whose hearts are hardened. And certainly, the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.) are in an opposition far-off (from the truth against Allâh's Messenger and the believers).

    Moe was eager to rope in his tribesmen, who worshiped the daughters of Allah.  He responded to the temptation by allowing their intercession and was caught. The story is retold in Ibn Sa'd's hadith and Ishaq's Sira

Situational Scripture

    The Qur'an is supposed to pre-exist the creation of the world.  It is in a sealed tablet, guarded by angels.

Ahl al-Sunna agree one and all that the Qur'an is the pre-existent, pre-eternal, uncreated Speech of Allah Most High on the evidence of the Qur'an, the Sunna, and faith-guided reason.

    Allah's words can not be changed. 

    Allah got on the Jew's case for altering his words:

    Moe issued situational scripture to sanction his sinful proclivities. To obtain a clear view of this, we need to match up certain ahadith with certain ayat in Surah Al-Ahzab.  The greatest clarity arises about marital issues.  Moe's child bride sums it up very nicely: Allah hastenas to fulfill Moe's wishes. . Match up the highlighted clauses in the following quotes.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 311:  

Narrated Aisha:

I used to look down upon those ladies who had given themselves to Allah's Apostle and I used to say, "Can a lady give herself (to a man)?" But when Allah revealed: "You (O Muhammad) can postpone (the turn of) whom you will of them (your wives), and you may receive any of them whom you will; and there is no blame on you if you invite one whose turn you have set aside (temporarily).' (33.51) I said (to the Prophet), "I feel that your Lord hastens in fulfilling your wishes and desires."

33:50. O Prophet (Muhammad )! Verily, We have made lawful to you your wives, to whom you have paid their Mahr (bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage), and those (captives or slaves) whom your right hand possesses - whom Allâh has given to you, and the daughters of your 'Amm (paternal uncles) and the daughters of your 'Ammah (paternal aunts) and the daughters of your Khâl (maternal uncles) and the daughters of your Khâlah (maternal aunts) who migrated (from Makkah) with you, and a believing woman if she offers herself to the Prophet, and the Prophet wishes to marry her; a privilege for you only, not for the (rest of) the believers. Indeed We know what We have enjoined upon them about their wives and those (captives or slaves) whom their right hands possess, - in order that there should be no difficulty on you. And Allâh is Ever Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful.

33:51. You (O Muhammad ) can postpone (the turn of) whom you will of them (your wives), and you may receive whom you will. And whomsoever you desire of those whom you have set aside (her turn temporarily), it is no sin on you (to receive her again), that is better; that they may be comforted and not grieved, and may all be pleased with what you give them. Allâh knows what is in your hearts. And Allâh is Ever All­Knowing, Most Forbearing.

    In Tabari's History, Volume 8, page 4, we find the gist of a lecherous story. Moe, being refused by his uncle, set up his manumitted, adopted slave with his cousin, later seeing her naked, Moe got horny. Allah arranged a split so Moe could have her. 

According to Yunus b. 'Abd al-A'la 11 - Ibn Wahb 12 - Ibn
Zayd,13 who said: The Messenger of God had married Zayd b.
Harithah to Zaynab bt. Jahsh, his paternal aunt's daughter. One
day the Messenger of God went out looking for Zayd. Now there
was a covering of haircloth over the doorway, but the wind had
lifted the covering so that the doorway was uncovered. Zaynab
was in her chamber, undressed, and admiration for her entered the
heart of the Prophet. After that happened, she was made unattrac-
tive to the other man.14 So he came and said, "Messenger of God, I
want to separate myself from my companion." Muhammad asked:
"What is wrong? Has anything on her part disquieted you?" "No,
by God," replied Zayd, "nothing she has done has disquieted me,
Messenger of God, nor have I seen anything but good." The Mes-
senger of God said to him, "Keep your wife to yourself, and fear
God." That is (the meaning of) the Word of GAccording to Yunus b. 'Abd al-A'la 11 - Ibn Wahb 12 - Ibn
Zayd,13 who said: The Messenger of God had married Zayd b.
Harithah to Zaynab bt. Jahsh, his paternal aunt's daughter. One
day the Messenger of God went out looking for Zayd. Now there
was a covering of haircloth over the doorway, but the wind had
lifted the covering so that the doorway was uncovered. Zaynab
was in her chamber, undressed, and admiration for her entered the
heart of the Prophet. After that happened, she was made unattrac-
tive to the other man.14 So he came and said, "Messenger of God, I
want to separate myself from my companion." Muhammad asked:
"What is wrong? Has anything on her part disquieted you?" "No,
by God," replied Zayd, "nothing she has done has disquieted me,
Messenger of God, nor have I seen anything but good." The Mes-
senger of God said to him, "Keep your wife to yourself, and fear
God." That is (the meaning of) the Word of God:15 "And when you
said unto him on whom God has conferred favor and you have
conferred favor, 'Keep your wife to yourself, and fear God.' And
you did hide in your mind that which God was to bring to light."
*You did hide in your mind* (the thought) that "if he separates
himself from her, I will marry her."d:15 "And when you
said unto him on whom God has conferred favor and you have
conferred favor, 'Keep your wife to yourself, and fear God.' And
you did hide in your mind that which God was to bring to light."
*You did hide in your mind* (the thought) that "if he separates
himself from her, I will marry her."

If Moe had followed his own advice, would he be married to Zainab?

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3240:

Jabir reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) saw a woman, and so he came to his wife, Zainab, as she was tanning a leather and had sexual intercourse with her. He then went to his Companions and told them: The woman advances and retires in the shape of a devil, so when one of you sees a woman, he should come to his wife, for that will repel what he feels in his heart.

    The divorce was not really voluntary.  A verse of situational scripture wzs 'revealed' about the marriage.   

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3330

Anas (Allah be pleased with him) reported: When the 'Iddah of Zainab was over, Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said to Zaid to make a mention to her about him. Zaid went on until he came to her and she was fermenting her flour. He (Zaid) said: As I saw her I felt in my heart an idea of her greatness so much so that I could not see towards her (simply for the fact) that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) had made a mention of her. So I turned my back towards her. and I turned upon my heels, and said: Zainab, Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) has sent (me) with a message to you. She said: I do not do anything until I solicit the will of my Lord. So she stood at her place of worship and the (verse of) the Qur'an (pertaining to her marriage) were revealed, and Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) came to her without permission. He (the narrator) said: I saw that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) served us bread and meat until it was broad day light and the people went away, but some persons who were busy in conversation stayed on in the house after the meal. Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) also went out and I also followed him, and he began to visit the apartments of his wives greeting them (with the words): As-Salamu 'alaikum, and they would say: Allah's Messenger, how did you find your family (hadrat Zainab)? He (the narrator) stated: I do not know whether I had informed him that the people had gone out or he (the Holy Prophet) informed me (about that). He moved on until he entered the apartment, and I also went and wanted to enter (the apartment) along with him, but he threw a curtain between me and him, as (the verses pertaining to seclusion) had been revealed, and people were instructed in what they had been instructed. Ibn Rafii had made this addition in his narration:" O you who believe, enter not the houses of the Prophet unless permission is given to you for a meal, not waiting for its cooking being finished..." to the words"... Allah forbears not from the truth."

    Zainab invokes jealousy by doing Aisha's time. 

Sahih Muslim  Book 008, Number 3450:

Anas (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) had nine wives. So when he divided (his stay) with them, the turn of the first wife did not come but on the ninth (day). They (all the wives) used to gather every night in the house of one where he had to come (and stay that night). It was (the night when he had to stay) in the house of 'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her), when Zainab came there. He (the Holy Prophet) stretched his hand towards her (Zainab), whereupon she ('A'isha) said: It is Zainab. Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) withdrew his hand. There was an altercation between the two until their voices became loud (and it was at that time) when Iqama was pronounced for prayer. There happened to come Abu Bakr and he heard their voices and said: Messenger of Allah, (kindly) come for prayer, and throw dust in their moths. So the Prophet (may peace be upon him) went out. 'A'isha said: When Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) would finish his prayer there would also come Abu Bakr and he would do as he does (on such occasions, i. e. reprimanding). When Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) had finished his prayer, there came to her Abu Bakr. and spoke to her ('A'isha) in stern words and said: Do you behave like this?

    How is it that a book written 50,000 years before the creation of the world contains provisions tailored for Zaid and Zaiab?  How is it that the provision was not revealed until the lust hit the fan?  If you have a reasonable explanation for this that fits Occam's Razor, I'd like to read it. 

Sahih Bukhari   Volume 6, Book 60, Number 310:

Narrated Anas bin Malik:

The Verse: 'But you did hide in your mind that which Allah was about to make manifest.' (33.37) was revealed concerning Zainab bint Jahsh and Zaid bin Haritha.

33:37. And (remember) when you said to him (Zaid bin Hârithah; the freed­slave of the Prophet ) on whom Allâh has bestowed Grace (by guiding him to Islâm) and you (O Muhammad  too) have done favour (by manumitting him) "Keep your wife to yourself, and fear Allâh." But you did hide in yourself (i.e. what Allâh has already made known to you that He will give her to you in marriage) that which Allâh will make manifest, you did fear the people (i.e., Muhammad  married the divorced wife of his manumitted slave) whereas Allâh had a better right that you should fear Him. So when Zaid had accomplished his desire from her (i.e. divorced her), We gave her to you in marriage, so that (in future) there may be no difficulty to the believers in respect of (the marriage of) the wives of their adopted sons when the latter have no desire to keep them (i.e. they have divorced them). And Allâh's Command must be fulfilled.

33:38. There is no blame on the Prophet () in that which Allâh has made legal for him.That has been Allâh's Way with those who have passed away of (the Prophets of) old. And the Command of Allâh is a decree determined.

    Aisha displayed some jealousy.  A Muslim is supposed to treat his wives equally; Moe was the exception.  Allah gave Moe permission to reschedule his marital visits. 


Sahih Bukhari  Volume 6, Book 60, Number 312:

Narrated Muadha:

'Aisha said, "Allah's Apostle used to take the permission of that wife with whom he was supposed to stay overnight if he wanted to go to one other than her, after this Verse was revealed:--

"You (O Muhammad) can postpone (the turn of) whom you will of them (your wives) and you may receive any (of them) whom you will; and there is no blame on you if you invite one whose turn you have set aside (temporarily). (33.51) I asked Aisha, "What did you use to say (in this case)?" She said, "I used to say to him, "If I could deny you the permission (to go to your other wives) I would not allow your favor to be bestowed on any other person."

33:51. You (O Muhammad ) can postpone (the turn of) whom you will of them (your wives), and you may receive whom you will. And whomsoever you desire of those whom you have set aside (her turn temporarily), it is no sin on you (to receive her again), that is better; that they may be comforted and not grieved, and may all be pleased with what you give them. Allâh knows what is in your hearts. And Allâh is Ever All­Knowing, Most Forbearing.

    Sunan an-Nasa'i # 3411 informs us of a row between Aisha, Hafsa and Moe over his having copulated with hafasa's slave.  The juicy details are provided by The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire Volume 9, page 88. Sunan Ibn Nasa'i informs us that the first five verses of Surah At-Tahrim  were revealed in connection with this affair.  Sahih Bukhari 7.63.192 attributes those verses to a controversy over lingering at Hafsa's house for honey.  Were it not for 4:24 and a few parallel verses, Moe would be an adulterer, liable to lapidation. 

    It should be as obvious to us as it was to Aisha that Moe was 'revealing' situational scripture; using Allah as a ventriloquist's dummy.

self proclaimed prophet

    It is obvious  from the New Testament that Moe was not prophesied by Jesus, and  it was Moe's wife and her cousin who proclaimed him a Prophet when he feared that he was demon possessed. .Allah refers to Moe as his Messenger, which, coming through Moe, is obviously circular.  

child molester

    If this girl was of age, why did she have a wet nurse with her?  Why would she be brought to him?

Sahih Bukhari   Volume 7, Book 63, Number 182:

Narrated Abu Usaid:

We went out with the Prophet to a garden called Ash-Shaut till we reached two walls between which we sat down. The Prophet said, "Sit here," and went in (the garden). The Jauniyya (a lady from Bani Jaun) had been brought and lodged in a house in a date-palm garden in the home of Umaima bint An-Nu'man bin Sharahil, and her wet nurse was with her. When the Prophet entered upon her, he said to her, "Give me yourself (in marriage) as a gift." She said, "Can a princess give herself in marriage to an ordinary man?" The Prophet raised his hand to pat her so that she might become tranquil. She said, "I seek refuge with Allah from you." He said, "You have sought refuge with One Who gives refuge. Then the Prophet came out to us and said, "O Abu Usaid! Give her two white linen dresses to wear and let her go back to her family." Narrated Sahl and Abu Usaid: The Prophet married Umaima bint Sharahil, and when she was brought to him, he stretched his hand towards her. It seemed that she disliked that, whereupon the Prophet ordered Abu Usaid to prepare her and to provide her with two white linen dresses. (See Hadith No. 541).

    Moe asked his companion if he had married a matron or a virgin and made suggestive comments. 

Sahih Bukhari 7.62.16 ...He said, "Did you marry a virgin or a matron? I replied, "A matron." He said, "Why didn't you marry a young girl so that you may play with her and she with you?"...

    Hishham's rescension of Sirat Rasul Allah is the oldest extant biography of Moe. Guillaume translated it as The Life of Muhammad.   On page 792 we learn that he married Aisha when she was seven years old and cohabitated with her when she was nine or ten years old. 

    A more modern bography, The Sealed Nectar,  informs us that she was six years old when Moe married her. 

MARRIAGE OF THE PROPHET (Peace be upon him) to ‘Aishah (May Allah be pleased her):
In Shawwal of the same year, the Prophet (Peace be upon him) concluded a marriage contract with
‘Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) ‘the truth verifier’, when she was six of age and
consummated his marriage with her in Shawwal, the year 1 A.H. in Madinah when she was nine.

    Most of the ahadith which state her age say she was six or seven when Moe married her. 

    Moe's sunnah is the excellent example for all Muslims to emulate in all times, at all places.  This fact is reflected in the Qur'an and in Islamic law.  Surah At-Talaaq 65:4 provides for iddah of three months for pre-pubescent wives who are divorced.  Iddah is only required in consummated marriages. 

    Reliance of the Traveller, Book M3.13 allows a Muslim to compel his pre-pubescent virgin daughter to marry the man of his choice.  Reliance N9.0 specifies the iddah for women divorced before they menstruate.


    Apparently Moe did not want to get his hands wet with blood.  Instead of doing his own murders, he commissioned hits by his companions.  In the case of Ka'b b. Ashraf, he asked "who will kill". For two more of Moe's murders. see The Life of Muhammad, page 675.  For a list of 43 killings, including the three already mentioned, go to Wikiislam


    From Ibn Sa'd:  {Messenger of al-Malhamah: Armageddon}|

Volume 1, Parts 1.25.7

He (lbn Sa`d) said: `Abd Allah Ibn Numayr informed us on the authority of Malik i.e. Ibn Mighwal, he on the authority of Abu Husayn, he on the authority of Mujahid, he on the authority of the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him; he said:

I am Muhammad and Ahmad, I am Rasul al-Rahmah, I am Rasul al-Malhamah, I am al-Muqaffi and a1-Hashir; I have been raised for Jihad and I am not raised for tillage.

        Two hadith cited by Tafssir Ibn Kathir.

(I was sent with the sword just before the Last Hour, so that Allah is worshipped alone without partners. My sustenance was provided for me from under the shadow of my spear. Those who oppose my command were humiliated and made inferior, and whoever imitates a people, he is one of them.)

 Hurairah that the Messenger of
 Allah   said:   "Whoever   meets
 Allah with no mark on him (as a
 result of fighting) in His cause, he
 will meet Him with a deficiency.''


Riyad us-Saliheen page 384 pdf
1341. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH)
said, "He who dies without having fought in the Cause of Allah or without having thought of doing so,
will die with one characteristic of hypocrisy in him."


1348. Abu Umamah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "He who
neither takes part in fighting nor equips a warrior nor looks after his (the warrior's) family, will be
afflicted by severe calamities before the Day of Resurrection."
[Abu Dawud] .

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have."


Sahih  Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:
Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:
The Prophet said, "I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.
1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey.
2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.
3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.
4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
 Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).
