11: The Teachings of the Hadith
people understand that the “Bible” of the Muslims is called the Qur’an,
they do not generally know that the religion of Islam has other sacred
writings which are viewed by Muslims as being just as inspired and
authoritative as the Qur’an. This other Islamic “Bible” is called the
The Hadith is a collection of early Muslim traditions which
record the words and deeds of Mohammed according to his wives, family
members, friends and Muslim leaders. These traditions are not usually
found in the Qur’an.
The famous Muslim scholar Dr.
Mohammed Hamidullah, in his book Introduction to Islam states that
“the custodian and repository of the original teachings of Islam” are
found “above all in the Qur’an and the Hadith.”
To this he adds that “the Qur’an and the Hadith” are “the basis of all
According to Dr. Hamidullah, the
reason that Muslims revere the Hadith as well as the Qur’an is that “the
Hadith is as divinely inspired as the Qur’an itself. The teachings of
Islam are based primarily on the Qur’an and the Hadith, and, as we shall
presently see, both are based on divine inspiration.”
This is why
Muslim writers such as Hammudullah Abdalatati in his book Islam in
Focus states that the Hadith is “considered the Second Source of
All the articles of faith… are based and derived from the teachings of
the Qur’an and the Traditions (Hadith) of Mohammed.
is no surprise that the material in the Hadith is considered inspired and
authoritative to orthodox Muslims.
Hadith gives us much material concerning pre-Islamic Arabia which is not
found in the Qur’an. For example, in Volume 3, Hadith 658, and in Volume
5, Hadith 583, we are told that there were 360 idols at the Ka’bah when
Mohammed conquered it. This bit of information is not mentioned in the
Qur’an, yet it provides us with important clues as to the religious
practices in pre-Islamic times.
Hadith contains the intricate details of just how and in what way various
Islamic religious rituals and laws are to be carried out. A detailed
analysis of the entire nine volumes of the Hadith will give to the English
reader a concise summary of the extra-quranic words and works of Mohammed.
It is thus with great delight that we
offer our summary of the Hadith to Western readers who have wondered about
the origins of some of the rituals and laws of Islam which seem so strange
to them. Many of these “strange” rituals actually come from the Hadith and
not from the Qur’an.
The driving force behind the Hadith
is the question, “What must I do to be forgiven by Allah and to be
admitted to paradise?” In the Hadith, Mohammed does not give us vague
generalities. He tells the reader exactly what to do, how to do it, and in
what order to do it.
The working assumption
throughout the Hadith is that without Allah’s forgiveness, no one may
enter into Paradise. Hell fire awaits those who do not gain Allah’s favor.
But to gain Allah’s acceptance and forgiveness is no easy matter. One must
EARN Allah’s forgiveness by following an elaborate set of rules and
rituals. One mistake can cancel out all that you have done up to that
point. There is no concept of salvation by grace in the Hadith. The Hadith
sets forth the rules and rituals which must be followed to earn salvation.
Those Muslims who ignore these rules and rituals imperil their immortal
souls. With these brief words, we will now begin a summary of the contents
of the Hadith.
Mohammed as a Man
The Hadith reveals much about the man
Mohammed that we do not find recorded in the Qur’an. This is important
because the teachings of the Hadith seek to verify that he was Allah’s
apostle. Thus Mohammed’s character as a man is crucial. Was Mohammed the
kind of man we would want to follow? The Hadith supplies us with the
information we need to know about his personality and character.
Mohammed was white.
First, as to his race, the Hadith
clearly states that Mohammed was a white man. This is stated so many times
in so many ways that it is quite obvious that the authors of the Hadith
were deeply concerned less someone think that Mohammed was a black man.
Hence the emphasis on the whiteness of Mohammed.
This will come as quite a shock to
the Black Muslims who have claimed that “Islam is a black man’s religion”
because “Mohammed was a black man.” Since Mohammed was a white man, then
the Nation of Islam is a “white man’s religion!” Many Black Muslims
express great surprise to learn that the Hadith clearly states that
Mohammed was a white man. But since they pay lip service to the
inspiration of the Hadith, in the end, they have to submit to its
authority. Indeed, if “all white men are devils” as Elijah Mohammed and
Louis Farrakhan have claimed, then Mohammed as well as Wallace Fard
(predecessor to Elijah Mohammed and Louis Farrakhan) were white devils.
The Hadith even claims that Mohammed
saw Jesus in a dream and that Jesus was a white man with straight hair.
The Black Muslims will not be happy with this Hadith, either.
This means that Jesus was a white devil, too!
As to the white skin of Mohammed, we
While we were sitting with the
Prophet in the Mosque, a man came riding on a camel. He made the camel
kneel down in the Mosque, tied its foreleg and then said, “Who amongst
you is Mohammed?”
At that time the Prophet was
sitting amongst us (his companions) leaning on his arm. We replied,
“This white man reclining on his arm.” The man then addressed him “O Son
of ‘Abdul Muttalib.”
The Hadith refers to Mohammed as “a
We are also told that when Mohammed raised his arms, “the whiteness of his
armpits became visible.”
If the above referenced passages are not clear enough, we are
later told that Anas “saw the whiteness of the thing of Allah’s Prophet.”
The “thing” is a reference to Mohammed’s penis.
Mohammed was racist.
As to the attitude of Mohammed about
black people, he referred to them as “raisin heads” in more than one place
in the Hadith.
Throughout the Hadith, black people are referred to as slaves.
If this is not insulting enough to black people, Mohammed felt that
dreaming of a black woman meant an evil omen of a coming epidemic of
Mohammed was short-tempered.
In terms of Mohammed’s
personality, the Hadith portrays him as short-tempered and easily angered.
For example, when Mohammed heard of someone leading in prolonged prayers,
the Hadith records:
never saw the prophet more furious in giving advice than he was on that
Since Mohammed claimed to be a
“prophet,” a man asked Mohammed where to find his lost camel. The Hadith
The Prophet got angry and his cheeks or his face became red.
Mohammed did not like questions.
Mohammed did not actually like anyone
to ask him questions about his claims to prophethood or revelation. He
went so far as to say
Allah has hated you… [for] asking too many questions.
Even when he was asked questions,
the Hadith records:
The Prophet was asked about things which he did not like. When the
questioner insisted, the Prophet got angry.
When those who asked questions “saw
the [anger] on the face of the Prophet,” they often withdrew their
But this did not please Mohammed, either. When the people
rightfully complained that he wanted them to accept what he said without
question, “The Prophet told them repeatedly [in anger] to ask him anything
But the people had learned not to ask anything.
Mohammed had no sense of humor.
Mohammed did not have a sense of
humor. He did not permit anyone to joke about him or his doctrines. In
Volume 2, No. 173, the Hadith tells the story of one elderly man who
watched Mohammed and his disciples bowing and touching their foreheads to
the dirt while reciting Surat-an-Najm.
When the old man saw their foreheads becoming dirty, as a joke
he picked up some dirt and put it to his own forehead and said “This is
sufficient for me.” The old man was saying that if the important thing was
to get dirt on your forehead when you pray, then it would be a lot easier
to pick up some dirt and smear it on your forehead. Obviously, the old
man’s joke was directed against the Muslims’ pride over their dirty
foreheads. But Mohammed was not amused by the old man or his joke. The
Hadith records that the Muslims murdered the old man in cold blood!
Mohammed was bitter and
Mohammed was a bitter, vengeful man
who had numerous people murdered when they got on his bad side. While
Mohammed told others not to kill people when in Mecca and, in particular
not to kill people at the Ka’bah, the fact is that when Mohammed heard
that Ibn Khatal was taking refuge in the Ka’bah, he said “Kill him.”
Khatal was dragged out and butchered.
One particular horrifying example of
Mohammed’s blood lust is found in Volume 3, No. 687 of the Hadith:
Allah’s Prophet said, “Who will
kill Ka’b ibn Al-Ashraf as he has harmed Allah and his Apostle? Mohammed
bin Maslama [got up and said], “I will kill him.” They [Mohammed bin
Maslama and his companions] came to him as promised and murdered him.
They went to the Prophet and told him.
Mohammed exploited tribal
Mohammed’s demand that somebody
murder for him sometimes caused problems among the tribes. On one
occasion, when Aisha
was only fifteen years old, she was accused of adultery. According to her
story, she had left her necklace behind when she went to answer the call
When she went back to find it, the caravan went on without her. They did
not realize that she had not rejoined them. Later a Muslim by the name of
Safwan bib Mu’attal As-Sulami Adh-Dhakwano found her and brought her back
to the caravan on his own camel.
This started the nasty rumor that
Aisha was having an affair with Safwan. The entire Muslim community was in
an uproar about the issue. According to Aisha, the leader of those who
accused her was named ‘Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul. His followers spread
forged statements by false accusers about her alleged adultery. According
to the Hadith, Aisha returned to be with her parents while Mohammed
…called upon ‘Ali bin Abu Talib and
Usama bin Zaid… to consult them about divorcing his wife.
They counseled him not to divorce
Aisha on the basis of mere rumors, but to ask Aisha’s female servant
Buraira if she had ever seen anything suspicious going on. Buraira said,
“No, by Allah who has sent you with the truth, I have never seen in her
anything faulty except that she is a girl of immature age who sometimes
sleeps and leaves the dough for the goats to eat.”
The footnote in the Hadith points
out that Aisha was only fifteen years old at the time. According to the
Hadith, Aisha was only six years old when Mohammed married her. He
consummated the marriage when she was only nine years old.
Mohammed ordered murders.
With Buraira’s word that Aisha was
Allah’s Prophet ascended the pulpit and requested that somebody support
him in punishing “Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul. Allah’s Prophet said,
“Who will support me to punish that person who has hurt me by slandering
the reputation of my family?” Sa’d bin Mu’adh got up and said, “O
Allah’s Apostle! By Allah, I will relieve you from him. If that man is
from the tribe of the Anu, then we will chop his head off, and if he is
from our brothers [the Khazraj], then order us, and we will fulfill your
The chief of the Khazraj, Sa’d bib
‘Ubada, jumped up to defend his tribe and said, “You cannot kill him.”
This in turn led Sa’d bin Mu’adh to say, “By Allah, we will kill him.” The
entire situation got out of control and the Anu tribe and the Khazraj
tribe prepared to fight each other over the issue. It took some time for
Mohammed to get things quieted down. Mohammed took the easiest way out and
claimed to have received a special revelation from Allah that Aisha was
innocent. Thus the issue for Muslims was now settled because Allah had
spoken. Those infidels who would dare question Mohammed on this issue
would meet the fate of all infidels.
Mohammed was superstitious.
Mohammed believed in the power of the
“evil eye” and told people to recite the Qur’an to fight it.
He also believed in good and bad omens such as the appearance of certain
birds and other animals.
Mohammed was even afraid that evil spirits might enter his body
whenever he urinated or defecated. Thus he prayed for special protection.
Mohammed was also afraid of a strong
Narrated Anas: Whenever a strong wind blew, anxiety appeared on the face
of the Prophet (fearing that the wind might be a sign of Allah’s wrath).
When a solar or lunar eclipse
took place, Mohammed was seized with fear that the Day or Judgment had
The sun eclipsed and the Prophet got up, being afraid that it might be
the Hour (i.e., Day of Judgment). Then he said, “These signs which Allah
sends do not occur because of the life or death of somebody, but Allah
makes his worshippers afraid by them. So when you see anything thereof,
proceed to remember Allah, invoke him and ask for forgiveness.”
Perhaps nowhere else does Mohammed’s
superstitious nature come out more than in his worship of the black stone
found at the Ka’bah in Mecca. Mohammed is known to have kissed and adored
Mohammed believed that if you placed
a green palm leaf on the grave of those suffering in that grave, their
pain would be lessened as it dried.
Mohammed was superstitious
about even numbers. He always avoided them. Thus he stipulated that an odd
number of stones be used in cleaning oneself after defecating:
Whoever cleans his private parts with stones
should do it with an odd number of stones.
Mohammed believed in magic.
Mohammed taught that people could
turn into rats, monkeys and pigs. In particular, he claimed that the Jews
were transformed into rats.
In another section of the Hadith, we read that:
Magic was working on Allah’s Apostle so that he used to think he had had
sexual relations with his wives while he actually had not.
To prove the depth of Mohammed’s
belief in and fear of magic, one need only read from Volume 7, No.
Mohammed had an abnormal sexual appetite.
Mohammed’s sexual activities
were legendary. His harem had over twenty women. The Hadith makes the
claim that he was able to have sex with all of them every day before
prayers. He supposedly had the sexual strength of thirty men. Such claims
were made to impress the Arabs, who believed that ceaseless sexual
activity was paradise.
Narrated Qatada: Anas bin Malik said, “The Prophet used to visit all his
wives in a round, during the day and the night and they were eleven in
number.” I asked Anas, “Had the Prophet the strength for it?” Anas
replied, “We used to say that the Prophet was given the strength of
As to how many wives the prophet had,
we are told by Anas bib Malik that “they were eleven in number.”
Mohammed would often choose new sexual partners from the women
captured during his conquests.
In flat contradiction, Volume 7, No. 142 says that Mohammed had only nine
Women devotees would offer themselves
to be in Mohammed’s harem:
woman came to Allah’s Prophet and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! I want to
give myself to you.”
would look at the women who offered themselves as sexual partners and if
they were beautiful enough, they were allowed to enter his harem. But if
they did not meet his approval, they were “given” to other men. The woman
who was given to Mohammed to someone else evidently had no choice in the
In addition to wives and devotees, Mohammed had sex with the slave girls
which were either given to him or which he purchased.
Mohammed was not sinless.
According to the Hadith, Mohammed was a sinner in need of forgiveness. He
was NOT sinless, as Islam now claims. When Mohammed was asked by Abu
What do you say in the pause between Takbir and recitation? Mohammed
replied, “O Allah, set me apart from my sins as the East and West are
set apart from each other and clean me from sins as a white garment is
cleaned of dirt [after thorough washing]. O Allah! Wash off my sins with
water, snow and hail.”
In another Hadith, Abu Huraira
heard Allah’s Apostle saying, “By Allah! I ask for forgiveness from
Allah and turn to him in repentance more than seventy times a day.”
Mohammed’s wife Aisha records that
the early Muslims did not regard Mohammed as sinless.
They said, “O Allah’s Prophet! We are not like you. Allah has forgiven
your past and future sins.”
This Hadith is clear that
Mohammed’s disciples praised him because his sins were forgiven and not
because he did not have any sins to forgive. And another Hadith says:
The Prophet used to say frequently in his bowings and prostrations, “O
Allah! Our Lord! All praises are for You. O Allah! Forgive me.”
The men of Quraish repeatedly said:
May Allah forgive his Apostle!
these men did not view Mohammed as sinless. The same can be said of a
group of three men who discussed that Allah had forgiven Mohammed of his
Further, Aisha is recorded as hearing Mohammed pray:
Allah! Forgive me and bestow your mercy on me.
During his supposed night journey
through seven heavens, Jesus allegedly says concerning Mohammed,
“Mohammed, the Slave of Allah, whose past and future sins were forgiven
Mohammed is commanded by Allah to ask
for forgiveness for his sins.
Abu Musa heard Mohammed pray this prayer:
my Lord! Forgive my sins and my ignorance. Forgive my sins of the past
and of the future which I did openly or secretly.
The only one not “touched” (i.e.,
corrupted) by Satan at birth was Jesus, according to Mohammed.
Thus Mohammed himself was “touched” by Satan.
The sins of Mohammed included
torturing people by cutting off their hands and feet and by burning out
their eyes with hot irons.
He left them to bleed to death after cutting off their limbs.
He also made people die of thirst.
Mohammed dyed his hair an orange-red
Narrated ‘Ubaid Ibn Juraij: And about the dyeing of hair with Henna; no
doubt I saw Allah’s Prophet dyeing his hair with it and that is why I
like to dye [my hair].
Mohammed kept his hair from growing white by dyeing it red, he failed to
keep it free of head lice.
Just as the Hadith reveals much about
the man Mohammed that we do not find recorded in the Qur’an, the Hadith
has much to say about Mohammed as a “Prophet” of Allah.
Perhaps the most amazing passage in
the Hadith is where the claim is made that Mohammed was a prophet because
he had a fatty tumor on his neck between his shoulders.
Narrated As-Sa’ib ibn Yazid: I stood behind him and saw the seal of
Prophethood between his shoulders, and it was like the “Zir-al-Hijla”
(meaning the button of a small tent, but some say “egg of a partridge”).
This Hadith is remarkable because it
reveals the Arabs believed that the “seal of prophethood” was a physical
lump between the shoulders.
Mohammed was a shaman who controlled
the jinn, i.e., the spirits who lived in the rocks, water and trees.
It is in the Hadith that we find the
descriptions of what physically happened to Mohammed when he supposedly
received his revelations “strongly, frequently and regularly.”
Mohammed would experience ringing in his ears as if he were
Mohammed’s heart would beat rapidly.
Mohammed’s face would turn red.
Mohammed would breathe heavily.
Mohammed would sometimes suddenly fall down or lie down.
…he fell down unconscious on the ground with both his eyes (open)
towards the sky.
He would ask to be covered with a sheet or blanket.
“I fell on the ground… and said, “Cover me! (With) a blanket, cover me!”
Then Allah sent a revelation: “O, you wrapped up in a blanket!”
He fell down unconscious on the ground with both his eyes (open) towards
the sky. When he came to his senses, he said, “My waist sheet! My waist
Mohammed’s lips would tremble as he lay on the ground.
Mohammed would sweat profusely.
Mohammed heard and saw things no one else heard or saw.
Mohammed would sometimes snore like a camel.
Mohammed would sometimes dream.
the characteristics of someone who has epilepsy or some other brain
disorder. Let the reader decide for himself.
Mohammed as a Miracle Worker
There are no recorded miracles of
Mohammed in the Qur’an.
But after his death, Mohammed’s disciples began to invent miracles for him
because they had to escape the stigma that their “prophet” was inferior to
the miracles of Moses, Jesus and the pagan soothsayers. What is so amazing
about some of these pretended miracles is that they were often originally
performed by Moses, Jesus and pagan magicians, but now were transferred to
the prophet! One gets the distinct impression that when a Jew or a
Christian pointed out some miracle recorded in the Bible, the Muslims
replied, “Then our prophet Mohammed must have done that, too.”
The following is a summary of the
miracles of Mohammed found in the Hadith. There are a few other miracles
mentioned in connection with the early Muslims, such as talking wolves and
preaching palm trees, but since they do not involve Mohammed directly,
they do not concern us.
When the residents of Mecca asked
Mohammed to do a miracle to prove that he was Allah’s prophet, he
supposedly reached up with his sword and cut the moon in half.
How and by whom the two sides of the moon were rejoined is not told. That
would be an even greater miracle to us!
The so-called miracle means that
either Mohammed had a very BIG sword or that the moon was very SMALL.
Historically, the Arabs at that time believed that the sun and the moon
were the size they appeared to the human eye. Thus the moon was about the
size of a basketball. Mohammed evidently had no problem cutting in half
such a small moon.
This “miracle” is very doubtful, for
if the residents of Mecca had seen Mohammed cut the moon in half, why did
Mohammed have to conquer them by military force? Would not such a glorious
miracle convert them?
A palm tree cried like a baby because
Mohammed used a pulpit to preach instead of standing beneath the tree to
preach. Mohammed left his pulpit and caressed the trunk of the tree until
it stopped crying.
On one occasion when the Muslims
needed water, Mohammed called for a bowl. Then he made water flow out of
his fingernails into the bowl until everyone had all the water they
How many people drank that water? One Hadith says seventy.
Another Hadith says eighty.
Yet another Hadith says around three hundred.
But then others say fifteen hundred.
Two things are demonstrated from these conflicting numbers: the Hadiths
often contradict each other and the miracles of Mohammed got bigger and
better each time they were told.
Mohammed fed the multitudes by
multiplying the bread, as did Jesus. He even had them come up in groups of
ten to further mimic the miracle of Jesus.
Food would shout out loud and glorify
Allah as Mohammed ate it. The picture of someone calmly eating talking
bread and meat is incredible.
The Open Grave
When a man who had once been a Muslim
and then reconverted back to Christianity died and was buried, the earth
would not accept his body, but threw it out of the grave.
Mohammed multiplied several heaps of
dates to cover the debt of a Muslim.
Mohammed’s Chest Split Open
Gabriel opened Mohammed’s chest and
washed his insides with Zam-zam water. Then he took wisdom and faith and
poured them into his chest and then closed it up.
The Night Journey
The night journey of Mohammed to
Jerusalem and then through seven heavens where he talked with Adam, Idris,
Moses, Jesus and Abraham is considered by some to be the greatest miracle
of Mohammed, surpassed only by the Qur’an itself.
Memories in a Sheet
Mohammed enabled one of his followers
to remember the Hadiths by having the man take off his sheet and lay it on
the ground. Then Mohammed went through the motion of picking something up
and then scooping it into the sheet. Mohammed then told the man to put his
sheet back on and the man never forgot anything after that.
The Rain Maker
When a drought threatened the people,
they went to Mohammed and asked him to pray to Allah for rain. After he
prayed, it rained.
The Drought Maker
When the tribes of Mudar refused to
accept Mohammed as Allah’s prophet, he cursed them in prayer that drought
and famine would destroy them for seven years. It is alleged that within a
year, the people were reduced to eating hides, carcasses and rotten dead
A Prophecy of Wind
Mohammed was able to predict that a
strong wind was going to blow. He warned people to prepare for it. One man
who did not heed his warning was blown away to a mountain called Taiy.
A Prophecy on Dates
Mohammed was able to estimate the
number of dates that a garden would contain before it was harvested.
The Healing Power of Spit
Mohammed cured a man with eye trouble
by spitting in his eyes. The man never had eye trouble after that.
All manner of diseases could be cured by Mohammed’s spit.
Even more outlandish was the practice of Mohammed of spitting into the
hands of his followers so they could smear his saliva on their faces.
Allah, whenever Allah’s Apostle spitted, the spittle would fall in the
hand of one of them (i.e., the Prophet’s compassions) who would rub it
on his face and skin.
It was in this light that we can understand why Mohammed smeared dead
bodies with his spit.
Spit Becomes Water
Mohammed spit into a dry well, it filled with enough water to satisfy
fourteen hundred men and their camels.
multiplied the water in two water skins to satisfy all the people and yet
the skins were more full at the end than at the beginning.
Mohammed healed a broken leg by
Healings through Recitation
Snake bites, scorpion stings, and all
kinds of illnesses were healed by Mohammed by waving his hand over the
wound, reciting the Qur’an, and applying his spit to the wound.
Mohammed would interpret the dreams
of others as well as his own dreams. He claimed that the dreams of a
Muslim is “one of the forty-six parts of prophetism.” Thus he was involved
in the occult art of dream interpretation.
The Hadith on Jihad
The Hadith reveals that Mohammed
wanted his religion to be spread primarily by the sword. The Hadith is
filled with commands to make war upon non-Muslims in order to force them
to embrace Islam. Jihad was so important to Mohammed that he made it the
second most important deed in Islam.
Allah’s apostle was asked, “What is the best deed?” He replied, “To
believe in Allah and his Apostle.” The questioner then asked, “What is the
next (in goodness)?” He replied, “To participate in Jihad (religious
fighting) in Allah’s cause.”
Anas bin Malik recorded that:
Allah’s Apostle vanquished them by force and their warriors were killed;
their children and women were taken as captives. Safiya was taken by Dihya
Al-Kalbi and later she belonged to Allah’s Apostle who married her.
summary on Mohammed’s teachings on Jihad should be informative to
translator of the Hadith, Dr. Mohammed Muhsin Khan, wrote an introduction
to the Hadith which included a discourse on the subject of Jihad by Sheikh
Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Hamid of the Sacred Mosque of Mecca in Saudi
This is the most frank Muslim discussion of Jihad we have ever read. It
does not deny or play down Mohammed’s demand that Muslims must force Jews,
Christians and pagans to either embrace Islam or submit to political and
financial suppression. Indeed, it tries to stimulate and motivate Muslims
to engage in Jihad today.
to Sheikh Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Hamid, Mohammed:
…commanded the Muslims to fight against all the
pagans as well as against the people of the scriptures (i.e., Jews and
Christians) if they do not embrace Islam, until they pay the Jizya (a tax
levied on the Jews and Christians who do not embrace Islam).
Jihad of the Sword
People are to be either converted or
subdued through the violence of military force.
Chapter 19 of the Hadith speaks of those who convert to Islam:
… by compulsion or for hear of being
have been ordered to fight against the people until they testify that none
has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Mohammed is Allah’s
Prophet, and offer prayers and give obligatory charity, so if they perform
all that, then they save their lives and property.
This is why he warned the King of the Byzantines, “If you become a Muslim,
you will be safe.”
If he did not convert, he and his kingdom would be destroyed and enslaved.
Hadith records how Mecca was conquered by force to Islam.
The Hadith records how Allah made Mohammed wealthy through conquests.
Further, the Hadith records how when a Muslim murdered someone during a
Jihad, he got to take the man’s property.
Prophet said, “Whoever has killed an enemy and has proof of that, will
possess his spoils.”
This is the driving force behind
Muslim violence in Africa today. In such countries as Nigeria and Sudan,
hundreds of thousands of Christians and pagans have been brutally
slaughtered or enslaved in the name of Jihad because they would not
convert to Islam.
Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has
ordered us to fight you til you worship Allah alone or give Jizya.
Jihad of Taxation
Those who refuse to embrace Islam
must pay a special tax called Al-Jizya.
This financial burden suppresses non-Muslims and makes their life as hard
Jihad of Financial Reward
In Iraq, a free university education has been offered to any Christian or
Jew who will embrace Islam. A “bounty” of one thousand dollars has been
offered to any South African black who will renounce Christianity and
embrace Islam. They will also be paid five hundred dollars for any other
blacks they convert to Islam.
It has been quite common to tell
Americans and Europeans that if they want to continue to work in the oil
business in Saudi Arabia, they must convert to Islam. No church is allowed
to be built on Saudi soil in the attempt to suppress Christian worship.
Jihad of Fear
The death penalty is applied to
anyone who renounces Islam and embraces another religion, such as
Christianity. As this work goes to print, there are Christians being
tortured in prison in Egypt whose only “crime” was to convert to
Jihad of Slavery
The only place in the world where
black chattel slavery is practiced today is in Muslim countries. In the
early 1990s, it was reported that Sudanese Muslims were capturing and
selling black women and children of the Dinka Christian tribe for as
little as $15 a head.
Even the United Nations released a report on slavery that points out that
the Muslims are still enslaving blacks. A special edition of Newsweek
reported on the problem.
Non-Muslim women who go to Saudi Arabia to work as maids are often
enslaved by their Muslim employers, beaten, and raped at will. When they
try to escape, the Saudi government will not let them leave the country,
but instead returns them to their masters.
Jihad of the Courts
Non-Muslims are denied equal access to and equal protection before the law
because their testimony in court is not valid against a Muslim.
This applies even to murder:
No Muslim should be killed for killing an infidel.
Jihad after Death
is to “fight on (Mohammed’s) behalf in his lifetime and after his death.”
Jihad of Paradise
Muslim who is killed while fighting in a Jihad will go straight to the
sexual pleasures of Paradise.
Qur’an and Hadith on Islam
Qur’an was written in heaven
and therefore no earthly pre-Islamic sources for the material found in the
Qur’an should exist. But they do exist in great abundance. Thus it is no
surprise to find that the Qur’an was written in the Quraish dialect.
This fact is often not known by non-Arab Muslims. After Mohammed’s death,
the Qur’an was scattered on palm leaves, rocks, bones, etc.
Therefore, the Hadith itself bears witness to the fact that Mohammed did
not prepare a manuscript of the Qur’an before his death.
As a matter of record, the Hadith
confirms that the Qur’an was put together by the Caliph Uthman after
Mohammed died. This point is often denied by those Muslims who are
ignorant of their own scriptures.
Uthman got the Qur’an compiled and sent a few of its copies to far off
Uthman… wrote the manuscripts of the Holy Qur’an in the form of a book.
When Uthman finished his version of
the Qur’an, the Hadith records that he tried to destroy all the
conflicting copies of the Qur’an.
This is clear proof that there were conflicting versions of the Qur’an.
The fact that the Qur’an is missing
certain verses and that other verses were abrogated is admitted in the
The Hadith even records that when certain people died, those portions of
the Qur’an known only to them perished with them.
Hadith records that Mohammed at times was bewitched and said and saw
things under satanic inspiration.
This admission by the Hadith destroys in principle the Muslim claim that
Mohammed was infallibly inspired. Since it is admitted that Mohammed at
times did and said things under satanic inspiration, then everything he
did and said is called into question.
Qur’an, the Hadith puts speeches into the mouths of biblical characters
such as Noah, Moses, Jesus, etc., which they could not have spoken because
of the vocabulary used, the doctrines taught, the historical references
made, etc. They are clearly fraudulent.
The Hadith admits that it has variant
readings and contradictory Hadiths.
Further, the translator of the Hadith, Dr. Mohammed Muhsin Khan, admits in
a footnote that “Hadith No. 159 contradicts the Hadith of Al-Hassan.”
And like the Qur’an, some Hadiths were canceled or abrogated.
The Hadith on Apostasy
The Hadith makes the repeated claim
that no one ever leaves Islam.
then asked, “Does anybody amongst those who embrace his (i.e., Mohammed’s)
religion become displeased and renounce the religion afterwards?” I
Then the Hadith contradicts itself
by saying that death is the punishment for those who leave.
Prophet said, “If somebody (a muslim) discards his religion (of Islam),
The Hadith even records the murders of those who left Islam for another
Volume nine of the Hadith has an entire section dedicated to warning those
who would leave Islam that they will be murdered.
So, wherever you find them, kill them, for
whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.
Hadith on Jews and Christians
taught that the Jews worshipped Ezra as the Son of Allah just as
Christians worshipped Jesus as the Son of Allah.
He also said,
Jews or Christians who heard about me and did not believe in me and what
was revealed to me of the Holy Qur’an and my traditions, his ultimate
destination is the (Hell) Fire.
Mohammed also said,
Allah cursed the Jews and the Christians
because they took the graves of their Prophets as places for worship.
Hadith on Mohammed and Women
taught that the majority of the people in hell were women.
Prophet said, “I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its
dwellers were women.
The reason the majority of the
people in hell are women is stated in Volume 2, No. 541:
Women! I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion
Mohammed believed that women were
“deficient in intelligence” and thus they should not be given equal rights
under Islamic law. For example, he legislated that a woman’s testimony in
court was worth only half that of a man. Thus it would take the testimony
of two women to offset the testimony of one man. Imagine what this would
do to women who were raped!
Prophet said, “Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a
man?” The women said, “Yes.” He said, “This is because of the deficiency
of a woman’s mind.”
ruled that women are to receive only half of what their brothers receive
Thus women are financially punished for being females.
Perhaps the most degrading picture of
women is that Paradise will have beautiful women, whose only purpose is to
satisfy the sexual urges of men.
The statement of Allah, Beautiful women
restrained (i.e., chained) in pavilions. Allah’s Apostle said, “In
Paradise there is a pavilion made of a single hollow pearl sixty miles
wide. In each corner there are wives who will not see those in the other
corners; and the believers will visit and enjoy them.”
The Hadith on Urine and Feces
Mohammed had a psychological
obsession with urine and feces. In fact, he spent a great deal of time
teaching on where, when and how to urinate and defecate. Mohammed was so
obsessed with the subject that he taught if someone got urine on his
clothes or body, they suffered hell fire in the afterlife!
One of the major sins is not to
protect oneself (one’s clothes and body) from one’s urine (i.e., from
being soiled with it). Once the Prophet, while passing one of the
graveyards of Medina or Mecca, heard the voices of two persons being
tortured in their graves.
The Prophet then added, “Yes!
(They are being tortured for a major sin.) Indeed, one of them never saved
himself from being soiled with his urine.”
that people are tortured in hell fire because they soil themselves with
Yet at the same time, Mohammed ordered people to drink camel urine mixed
in milk as medicine!
the Prophet ordered them to go to the herd of camels and to drink their
milk and urine (as a medicine).
The rules for urination and
defecation are as follows:
You must not face Mecca when urinating or defecating.
You must not use your right hand to hold or wipe yourself.
You must wash your privates after urinating.
If you do “hadath’ (i.e., after you pass wind through the
anus) while you are engaged in prayer, Allah will not hear your prayers.
taught many things which seem to the modern reader to be patently absurd.
Some of his beliefs were so far out that no one today could possibly
accept or defend them. Yet, we recognize that sincere Muslims must do so
or give up their claim that Mohammed was Allah’s Apostle. We understand
their difficulty. How can they defend the indefensible? How can they
justify what is so obviously absurd? This is the crux of the matter.
following teachings are a partial list of some of the strange things
Mohammed taught to his disciples.
taught that Adam was 90 feet tall:
The Prophet said, “Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall.
Was Adam really as tall as a six
story building? How tall was Eve? And their children? And why are we not
that tall? Does not the science of human anatomy tell us that Adam could
not have been 60 cubits tall? What Muslim is prepared to defend Mohammed’s
The Fly in the Cup
If a fly falls into your cup, do not
worry about it because Mohammed said that while one wing has the disease,
the other has the antidote. So drink up!
No Dogs Allowed
Angels will not enter a house if a
dog is there.
That’s why Mohammed ordered that dogs should be killed: “Allah’s Apostle
ordered that the dogs should be killed.”
Dog lovers would not make good Muslims.
Mohammed claimed that Gabriel gave
him the secret as to why a child looks like its father or its mother. This
answer was given to prove that Mohammed was Allah’s Apostle:
for the resemblance of the child to its parents: If a man has sexual
intercourse with his wife and gets a discharge first, the child will
resemble the father, and if the woman gets her discharge first, the child
will resemble her.
What modern Muslim is prepared to
prove that one’s “discharge”—i.e., orgasm—and not genetics is the key to
the physical characteristics of one’s children?
The stars were created by Allah as
missiles to throw at the devils.
Astronomers should be interested in this information.
Do as I Say, Not as I Do
Mohammed commanded everyone
to have a will, when he himself failed to make one.
I asked Adullah bin Abu Aufa, “Did the Prophet
make a will?” He replied, “No.” I asked him, “How is it then that the
making of a will has been enjoined on people?”
What Spirits Eat
The jinn (spirits) eat dung and bones
according to Mohammed.
This bit of information is as far out as one can go.
No Assurance of Salvation
Mohammed had no assurance of
Prophet said, “By Allah, though I am the Apostle of Allah, yet I do not
know what Allah will do to me.”
On Murder and Deceit
Mohammed agreed to the murder of a
man through lies and deceit.
He evidently did not believe in the sanctity of truth or life.
The Six Hundred Wings of
The angel Gabriel has six hundred
wings, according to Mohammed.
Satan in Your Nose
Mohammed would suck water up his nose
and then blow it out because “Satan stays in the upper part of the nose
We have yet to find a single Muslim who will defend this strange doctrine
and practice of Mohammed.
Fevers from Hell
Mohammed believed that a fever was
from the heat of hell:
Prophet said, “Fever is from the heat of the (Hell) fire, so cool it with
Noah’s Floating Ark
“Noah’s Ark appeared and floated in
front of their eyes.”
How or why this happened we are not told.
Dirty Water Blessings
Mohammed’s followers fought over who
would get the dirty water left over from his washings. They would smear it
on their bodies or drink it to secure a magical blessing.
Satan Urinating in Your Ears
Satan urinates into the ears of those
who fall asleep during prayers.
Bad breath means that Allah will not
hear your prayers. You may not eat garlic or onions before going to
prayers because Allah will not hear you with their smell on your breath.
Yawning is from Hell
Yawning is from Satan according to
Perhaps Mohammed saw too many yawns when he preached the oracles of Allah.
Mohammed was truly Allah’s apostle and prophet, then what he taught came
from Allah. But if what he said is so outlandish and absurd that it cannot
be true, then how can he be the apostle or prophet of Allah or any other
