Muslims are shown a benign image of Muhammad. He is presented as a noble and holy man whose actions and teachings are to be emulated by all mankind. Many of these Muslims get these ideas from books written by islamic apologists (who cleverly make baser metals into gold), and not from the original sources like the Hadiths. Muslims are generally afraid of reading anything negative about their beloved prophet from his biography. This is what I call an ostrich mentality (“If I can’t see it, then it’s not there”) and it doesn’t help a seeker of truth.
The Quran says: “And most surely you [Muhammad] conform (yourself) to sublime morality” (68:4).
We must not blindly believe these claims until we examine the life of Muhammad. And if we find it to be rotten, then we must reject his prophethood. The Lord Jesus said a good tree is known by its fruits (Mt. 7:18). In the same way, a true prophet is known by his acts, not just by claims.
Muhammad himself said: “Whoever can guarantee [the chastity of] what is between his two jaw bones and what is between his two legs, I guarantee Paradise for him” (Bukhari 8:76:481).
What he means is that if your tongue and private parts are chaste, then you are truly qualified for paradise. Looking at the hadiths however, its clear that Muhammad failed his own test. Here, I will address his sexual life and then address his tongue elsewhere. Here are some examples:
Allah gave Muhammad a verse allowing him to have as many women he wanted, even “a believing [Muslim] woman if she offers herself to the Prophet and the Prophet wishes to marry her, a privilege for you only…” (Q 33:50). The hadith records that a woman came to him and said: “O Allah’s Apostle! I want to give myself to you” (Bukhari 3:505).
Muhammad would “check out” these sex partners. If they were good to his taste, he would allow them enter his harem, otherwise, he would give them to other men. Prophethood has never been so sweet.
He also made up what is called Mut’ah. According to Ibn Masu’d:
“We were fighting along with Messenger of Allah while (our) wives are not with us. We said: shall we not undergo castration? The Holy Prophet forbade us from that. Afterwards he made lawful Mut’ah Marriage. So all of us married a woman for a fixed term in exchange for a cloth. Afterwards [Muhammad] recited: O those who believe! Do not make unlawful the good things which Allah has made for you (Sura 5:87)” (Mishkat ul-Masabih 2:115).
Mut’ah is a temporary “marriage” by a Muslim man with a lady in exchange for cash; a sort of “holy prostitution.” Today, it’s commonly practiced by Shi’ite Muslim tourists and pilgrims.
This is a condition in which a man has an abnormally high sexual appetite (called nymphomania in females). Muhammad obviously had this problem. “…The apostle of Allah said ‘Gabriel bought a kettle from which I ate and I was given the power of sexual intercourse of 40 men” (Tabaqat al-kabir 1:438). Why an angel of God would give a prophet “heavenly viagra” is beyond me.
Anas b. Malik narrated that “the Prophet use to pass by [have sexual relations with] all his wives in one night, and that time he had 9 wives” (Bukhari 7:142). Abu Usaid narrated when a lady from Bani Jaun lodged in a house. Muhammad went to see her and said “give yourself as a gift’ she said ‘can a princess give herself to an ordinary man?’ The Prophet raised his hand to pat her that she may become tranquil. She said ‘I seek refuge with Allah from you…” (Bukhari 7:63:182).
The “give yourself as gift” here means “give your body to me.” When she rejected his advances, he was angry and wanted to hit her and she became afraid. Muhammad attempted to use his “prophet” to mount every beautiful lady in town.
This is defined as any non-consensual sexual intercourse – even if force was not involved. This crime of Muhammad and his followers is well documented in islamic records. An example is the case of a Jewess named Safiya. According to Ibn Hisham’s biography, she was 17 years old when Muhammad killed her husband. On the same night “she was groomed and made up for the prophet by Umm Salam … they spent the night there. Abu Ayyub al-Ansari guarded the tent of the Prophet the whole night [while he raped her…” (p. 766).
Another example was Juwairiya who was captured as a slave during the islamic jihad against the Bani Mustaliq tribe. She was given to Thabit ibn Qayas and had a choice of paying 9 okes of gold to him to release her. She couldn’t afford it. Then Muhammad saw how beautiful she was and was “moved” (i.e sexually aroused). He told her “would you like something like that? I will discharge your debt and marry you. She said ‘yes O then it is messenger of Allah. ‘Done’ he replied” (Bukhari 3:46:717).
Muslims may call this “marriage” but it’s rape. Do you think these young women loved to have sex with a filthy old man in his 50s who killed their fathers, husband, brothers and exterminated their entire tribe? They simply had no choice. The sexual relationship this man had with them was not consensual.
This is a sexual activity with a pre-pubescent child (generally 13 years or younger). A paedophile is one who has a reoccurent, intense, sexually arousing fantasies or sexual behavious involving sexual activity with a child (DSM-IV-TR).
Muhammad married Aisha at the age of 6 and had sex with her at 9.
“The Prophet was engaged to me when I was a girl 6 years old … I was playing in a swing with some of my girlfriends … unexpectedly, Allah’s apostle came to me in the afternoon and my mother handed me over to him. At that time I was a girl of 9 years” (Bukhari 4:234).
“The Prophet used to kiss her and suck her tongue when he was fasting” (Sunan Abu Dawud 13:2380).
Can you imagine a 52 year old man kissing and sucking a 9 year old child? Anyone who is not repulsed by this act is mentally sick. Some modern Muslims who are embarrassed by their prophet’s paedophila try to bring Aisha’s age up to 13 or 14. Some even claim the hot weather of the desert made children mature (for sex?).
Aisha herself said: “I used to play with dolls in the presence of the prophet and my girlfriends also used to play with me. When Allah’s apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves” (Bukhari 8:73:151).
“When the prophet married me, my mother came to me and made me enter the house (of the prophet) and nothing surprised me but the coming of Allah’s apostle to me in the forenoon…” (Bukhari 7:62:90)
Note that she was playing with her dolls because she was still a little girl, and she was suprised when the old man ‘came to her in the forenoon’ to have sex with her. She wasn’t psychologically and physically matured for sex at that age – with a man old enough to be her granddad! Again, in Sirat Rasulallah, Muhammad saw a baby girl crawling towards him and he said “if she grows up and I am still alive, I will marry her. But he died before she grew up” (pg. 311)
This is a sexual or romantic activity between an adult male and a little boy. It was commonly practiced among the ancient Greeks and Arabs. Muhammad also loved sucking little boys’ tongues.
“He [Muhammad] sat down and wrapped himself in his garment. Then he said, ‘where is the little one? Call the little one to me.’ Hasan came running and jumped into his lap. Then he put his hand on his beard. Then the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, opened his mouth and put his tongue in his mouth. Then he said, O Allah, I love him, so love him and the one who loves him!” (Bukhari 1183, Narrated Abu Hurayra)
“A Bedouin came to the Prophet and said ‘you (people) kiss the boys! We don’t kiss them!’ The Prophet said ‘I cannot put mercy in your heart after Allah has taken it away from it” (Bukhari 8.73:27, Narrated Aisha).
6. Cross Dressing
Sexually healthy men do not cross dress, but Muhammad had a habit of dressing up in women’s clothes, specifically his child bride Aisha’s. This is another disturbing aspect of Muhammad’s sexuality, making him out as a drag queen.
“Revelations [the Quran] never come down to me when I’m dressed in women’s clothing except when I’m dressed in Aisha’s” (Bukhari 21911).
There is an account of Muhammad having sex with the corpse of his aunt (necrophilia) in the hadiths, but I think the ones I have cited so far are enough to give us a picture of what Muhammad’s sex life was all about.
Muslims usually defend his sexual perversions by saying that those acts were acceptable back then, but not today. This begs the question. If they were acceptable by the ignorant pagans then, why did Muhammad copy them? Wasn’t he supposed to lay a good example? This man claimed to be “the most perfect example for mankind” (Q33:21) and “the most honourable Messenger” (Q81:19) thereby endorsing the evil practices he indulged in in his time, making it a norm all his followers today.
If Muhammad was alive today, he would have been jailed or executed for his crimes against humanity. If by human standards, he stands condemned as grossly immoral and evil, how much more by God’s holy standard? I’d like to ask my Muslim friends, where is the evidence that by following such a man you are on your way to heaven? There’s none! God says: “Outside [of heaven] are dogs [sex perverts], sorcerers, sexual sinners, murderers, idolaters and all who lie in all they say and do” (Rev. 22:14).
