While Rape is viewed as a serious crime by decent human-beings in all civilized societies, it is sanctioned in the Qur’an by Allah. Muslims are given the divine right to rape the victims of war whom they have subdued. In other words, Muslims are given the divine authorization to rape the female prisoners of war. Islam is the only religious system in the world that includes rules for rape. To be silent in the face of evil is evil itself. Therefore, it is vital to expose this gross wickedness that is sanctioned in Islam. If you find these charges against Islam unbelievable, please read this article carefully.
Rape is an assault on a person involving sexual intercourse without his or her consent. Rape is considered as a serious sex crime as well as a civil assault. The International Criminal Tribunal established by the United Nations defines Rape as:
“A physical invasion of a sexual nature committed on a person under circumstances which are coercive.”
Therefore, Rape is classified as a sexual intrusion on a person under circumstances in which the victim is powerless to avoid or prevent the unwanted invasion. Sex with slaves and captives of war fit this classification since the circumstances under which they are subjected to sexual intercourse make it impossible for theses victims to object. As such, sex with war captives is considered as Statuary Rape because the victims are in no position to prevent the assault. It is vital to note that the absence of objection does not, of itself, constitute consent. Duress, in which the victim may be threatened or subjected to overwhelming force or violence, may result in absence of objection to the forced sexual intrusion. War Rape is a typical situation where absence of objection is common. In its report regarding Rape during conflicts, the International Criminal Tribunal stated the following:
Rape is an institutionalized weapon of war. Rape is a crime of genocide under international law. The systematic Rape of a civilian population by an occupying army is a serious war crime. (4th Annual Report of the International Criminal Tribunal to the General Assembly).
RAPE IN ISLAM
We will now consider the subject of Rape in Islam. It may come as a shock for many to learn that Rape is sanctioned by both Allah and Muhammad. There are specific instances in which Rape is not a sin in Islam. It is both permitted and encouraged by the divine laws of Allah in the Qur’an. Islam is the only religious political system in the world that includes rules for Rape in its theology.
Unbelievable as it may seem, Allah gave Muslims the divine right to rape women who are taken captive as prisoners of war. Muhammad himself had forced sex with several captives of war. Later these victims of rape are either sold or kept as sex-slaves by their Muslim masters. Islam considers slaves and captives as property. Therefore, a Muslim master is permitted to engage in unlimited sex with those who are taken as prisoners of war. Muslim men are authorized to rape them at will. Raping captives and slaves was widespread during the “Golden days of Islam.” Muhammad himself participated personally in this immorally wicked act after he came into power. Muhammad was a Rapist.
Muslims are authorized to engage in sex with female slaves who are:
(1) Taken captive in war (2) Purchased by money (3) Received as a gift (4) The daughters of the slaves in their possession.
The promise of illicit sex became an irresistible incentive for depraved men who lack morality to join Muhammad’s new religion. It is an incentive engraved in the Qur’an–the heart and soul of Islam. Since Muslims will not accept any interpretation that is extraneous to Islam, we will use their own Islamic sources to substantiate our argument. We will use authentic documented evidences from Islam itself to prove beyond doubt that Islam approves, codifies and legalizes rape in its sacred text.
THE ENTICEMENT OF WOMEN
In Al Rod Al Anf, Volume 2, p. 182, Ibn Hisham recorded the pledge of Muhammad to his warriors:
“You see God will soon make you inherit their land, their treasures and make you sleep with their women.” (Literally: make their women beds for you).
Addressing his warriors, Muhammad clearly testified to them that it is Allah who will “make you sleep with their women.” Would the true God act as a pimp by providing women for the sexual gratification of his worshippers? In this case, it is even worse, for these women are not prostituting themselves for Allah to act as a pimp but they are the innocent wives, daughters, mothers and sisters of the unfortunate men who were either captured or killed by the Muslims. Notice the corrupting effect of Muhammad’s influence on Muslims. One of Muhammad’s warriors declared:
Tabari IX:25: “By Allah, I did not come to fight for nothing. I wanted a victory over Ta’if so that I might obtain a slave girl from among them and make her pregnant.” (See also Sirat Rasul Allah by Ibn Ishak, p.590.)
And Muhammad’s corrupting influence continues on till today.
THE LEGALITY OF RAPE
Two different translations of the following important Qur’anic verses are provided below:
Surah 23:1-6: “Triumphant indeed are the believers…who restrain their carnal desires except with their spouses and slave-girls. The practice of carnal relations is lawful with them.” (Sarwar)
The believers must eventually win through…Who abstain from sex, Except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or the captives whom their right hands possess–for in their case they are free from blame. (Yusuf Ali)
The above Qur’anic verses clearly prove that it is “lawful” for Muslims to engage in “carnal relations” with their slave-girls, of course, with their wives. Therefore, they are authorized to satisfy their carnal desires with these two categories of women. As stated earlier, slave-girls are either purchased from the slave market or enslaved through captivity. These slave-girls are the defenseless mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters of the men slain in battle. The authorization to rape captives is sanctioned by Allah and enshrined in the Qur’an. And shamelessly Allah tells his Prophet:
Surah 33:50: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries and those whom thy right hand possesses of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war.” (Pickthall)
Prophet, We have made lawful for you your wives whom you have given their dowry, slave girls whom God has given to you as gift. (Sarwar)
Just as it is lawful for Muhammad to engage in sexual intercourse with his legal wives, Allah has also made it lawful for Muhammad to engage in sexual intercourse with the women captives of war. Once again we learn about the role of Allah as a pimp. The above Qur’anic verse clearly states that it is Allah who provides these slave girls as gifts to Muhammad for his sexual enjoyment. Muslims, have you ever wondered why Allah is so obsessed with the sexual gratification of his Prophet? Islam teaches that Muhammad is a role model for Muslims to follow. So, what moral lesson is Allah teaching here for Muslims to emulate? Is he teaching Muslims that it is fair to rape the helpless captives of war? Is that the reason why Muslim men are also given the same authorization to rape the captives? This same right for ordinary Muslims to rape the captives is confirmed in the following Qur’anic verse. Three different translations are provided below:
Surah 4:24: “Also forbidden are married women unless they are captives of war. Such is the decree of God.” (Ahmed Ali)
And all married women are forbidden unto you save those captives whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you. (Pickthall)
Also forbidden for you are married women, except those who have fallen in your hands as prisoners of war. (Farook Malik)
This means that while a Muslim is prohibited from engaging in sex with a married woman, there is an exception to this rule if the married woman falls into his hands as a captive of war. Under such circumstances, he is allowed to rape the married captive.
Maududi is a highly respected Commentator on the meaning of the Qur’an. In his clarification of the above Qur’anic verse, he stated that according to Surah 4:24, it is lawful to engage in sexual-intercourse with slave-girls without the benefit of marriage. Listen carefully to his commentary:
Two categories of women have been excluded from the general command of guarding the private parts: (a) wives, (b) women who are legally in one’s possession, i.e. slave-girls. Thus, the verse clearly lays down the law that one is allowed to have sexual relation with one’s slave-girl as with one’s wife, the basis being possession and not marriage. If marriage had been the condition, the slave-girl also would have been included among the wives, and there was no need to mention them separately. (Sayyid Abul A’La Maududi, The Meaning of the Qur’an, vol. 3p. 241, note 7)
In the above Tafsir (Commentary), Maududi made it clear that according to the Qur’an, marriage is not a precondition for Muslims to engage in sex with their slave-girls. In the theology of Islam, a Muslim has the right to demand sex from his legal wife. Allah grants Muslims this same right with their slave-girls based on “possession and not marriage.” As such, these slave-girls are also required to provide sex on demand. As this right to sexual intercourse is authorized by Allah, the consent of the slave-girls is not required. Deemed as his property, a slave-girl does not have the right to object the sexual advances of her Muslim master even if she does not approve his uninvited intrusion on her person. Does not this sexual intrusion on her body without her consent categorically amount to an act of rape? Would you join a religion that codifies an edict in its holy book that permits the raping of helpless women? A vital fact to remember is that this law is still in force in Islam even to this day.
Surah 4:24 provides the authorization for Muslims to rape married women who are taken captive. We will now look at the circumstances that led to the revelation of Surah 4:24. The following Hadiths reveals the circumstances for the revealing of this Qur’anic verse.
Sahih Muslim, Book 8, Number 3432:
Abu Sa’idal-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that at the Battle of Hunain, Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) sent an army to Autas and encountered the enemy and fought with them. Having overcome them and taken them captives, the Companions of Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being polytheists. Then Allah, Most High, sent down regarding that: “And women already married, except those whom your right hands possess (Qur’an 4:24)”
Sunan Abu Dawud, Volume 2, Book V, Chapter 711, Number 2150:
Abu Sa’id al-Khudri said: The Apostle of Allah sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, send down the Qur’anic verse: “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hand possess.” – Surah 4 An-Nisa 24.
Surah 4:24 was revealed in a specific context when Muslim warriors captured some women whose husbands were still alive. And some of Muhammad’s warriors were reluctant to rape the women in the presence of their husbands. They consulted their supreme leader. Muhammad realized that if Allah did not include married women in his authorization to rape, then the motivation to fight the next jihad will soon diminish. He immediately sought Allah’s intervention. And right away Allah revealed Surah 4:24 to sanction both rape and adultery. Because of this Qur’anic verse, the wives of the infidel captives became lawful to the conquering jihadist. The warriors who were reluctant moments ago were now assured of the blessings of Allah to rape these women–both married and single. They now raped these women with an untroubled conscience. Whatever trace of decency that they had just moments ago were now obliterated by Allah.
Will the true God himself become a corrupting influence on the moral integrity of his worshippers? Will the true God inspire verses that sanction such debased acts as rape in his Scriptures? Basic human decency and justice dictate that no female prisoners of war should be subjected to sexual harassment by their captors under any circumstance. So how can Allah’s moral standards be lower than that of imperfect humans? Having sex with women in their most desperate condition as captives is not only morally wrong but also extremely evil.
The raping of civilians by an occupying army is judged as a serious war crime even by man-made laws. Yet, this sexual crime is authorized by Allah. Thus, the laws of Allah are not only inferior to man-made laws but they are also animalistic. Allah is guilty of promoting one of the most depraved sexual crimes by codifying rape as an acceptable act in the Qur’an. All armies have criminal soldiers who at times commit this disgraceful act. However, it is one thing for some soldiers to strike out on their own and commit this disgraceful act and quite another to approve and codify rape in a sacred text. Islam is the only religion in the world that legitimizes rape in its theology. Surah 4:24 testifies to this disputable fact.
The following Tafsir (Commentary) by a renowned Islamic scholar confirms the blasphemous authorization of rape in the Qur’an. Please read the following Commentary by Ibn Kathir carefully.
Tafsir Ibn Kathir on Surah 4:24 (Surah An-Nisa):
The Ayah (verses) means Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess.), you are prohibited from marrying women who are already married. Except those whom your right hands possess) except those whom you acquire through war, for you are allowed such women after making sure they are not pregnant. Imam Ahmad recorded that Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri said, “We captured some women from the area of Awtas who were already married, and we disliked having sexual relations with them because they already had husbands. So, we asked the Prophet about this matter, and this Ayah was revealed, (Also forbidden are women already married, except those whom your right hands possess). Accordingly, we had sexual relations with these women.” This is the wording collected by At-Tirmidhi An-Nasa’i, Ibn Jarir and Muslim in their Sahih.
Through the inspiration of Surah 4:24 and verified by a number of Hadiths there emerges a clear picture of the divine authorization of Rape, Adultery and Fornication in Islam. Allah took it upon himself to sanction rape. And this includes the raping of married women who became the unfortunate captives of the Muslim warriors. Thus, the divine approval of rape is engraved in the theology of Islam. Only the most debased religion will sanction rape in its sacred text. Can a religion that authorizes men to rape their captives come from mankind’s Creator? Absolutely not!
The Islamic Legal Manual, “Umdat al-Salik” which carries the endorsement of Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, states the following:
When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.” Why? So that they are free to become the concubines of their captors. The Qur’an permits Muslim men to have intercourse with their wives and their slave girls: “Forbidden to you are … married women, except those whom you own as slaves.(Surah 4:23-24).
In order to encourage his warriors to rape the captives with an untroubled conscience, Allah nullifies the sacred marriage union of the captives. Compare the wickedness of Allah with the words of Jesus Christ in the following verse:
Matthew 19:6: “Therefore, what God has yoked together, let no man put apart.”
Women and children are distributed among the holy warriors after Muhammad receives one-fifth of the war booty. Women captives are either sold or forced to become sex-slaves and concubines of the conquering jihadists. This depravity of Allah is just too severe for any rational person to ignore. It goes against the very nature of God in whose image we are created.
Muhammad’s men inquired him with an ethical question regarding coitus interruptus. Read the following Hadiths carefully.
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 46, Number 718:
Narrated Ibn Muhairiz: I saw Abu Said and asked him about coitus interruptus. Abu Said stated, “We went with Allah’s Apostle, in the Ghazwa of Barli Al-Mustaliq and we captured some of the ‘Arabs as captives, and the long separation from our wives was pressing us hard and we wanted to practice coitus interruptus. We asked Allah’s Apostle (whether it was permissible). He said, “It is better for you not to do so. No soul, (that which Allah has) destined to exist, up to the Day of Resurrection, but will definitely come, into existence.”
Sahih Muslim, Volume 2, Number 3371:
“…Abu Sirma said to Abu Said al Khudri: “O Abu Said, did you hear Allah’s messenger mentioning about al-azl (coitus interruptus)?” He said, “Yes,” and added: “We went out with Allah’s messenger on the expedition to the Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing azl” (withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: “We are doing an act whereas Allah’s messenger is amongst us; why not ask him?” So we asked Allah’s messenger and he said: “It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.””
Having taken some captives, Muhammad’s men wanted to perform coitus interruptus with these women. They asked him whether it was permissible. Muhammad replied: “It is better that you should not do it, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection.” Muhammad was referring to coitus interruptus and not to the legality of raping the captives when he said that “it is better that you should not do it.” The subject of a soul coming into existence will not be an issue if sex or in this case rape is not on the agenda. He made it clear that “coitus interruptus” would be pointless since “every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.” Clearly, rape was on the agenda and it was not an issue with Muhammad. The only real question was the technique itself. Since Allah has already sanctioned rape, it is not an issue with the warriors.
Note that Muhammad was quick with his answer because he knew that Allah had already sanctioned rape in the Qur’an. While Muhammad allowed his men to rape, he did not approve coitus interruptus. He did not prohibit this extremely evil practice when the opportunity presented itself right there for him to forbid it. Instead, he allowed his men to rape and reassured them not to be unduly worried about impregnating these women. The false Prophet of Islam told his men that having sex with the female captives would have nothing to do with any children being born into the world since “every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.”
In other words, any children born to these captives would have been born as a result of the divine decree of Allah and not because of the sexual act of the Muslim rapist. Therefore, Muhammad’s men would not be accountable for any children being born through their sexual act. Allah’s divine decree alone would be responsible for the birth of those children. This absolute absurdity of Muhammad stems from the concept of Predestination in Islam. The teaching of Predestination is one of the six articles of faith in Islam. For an in-depth understanding on the subject of Predestination in Islam, please click the following link: TEACHING OF PREDESTINATION PROVES ISLAM IS FALSE
Muhammad was eager to reward his warriors with every sensual pleasure as long as they willingly plundered, killed, and enslaved others at his command. This utterly wicked man did not even have the slightest trace of compassion to consider whether it was morally right to rape women who were already married to husbands of their own. Muhammad the greatest exemplar for all mankind took his stand against the weak so the powerful could satisfy their animalistic desire.
In another account, Muhammad even seemed to be impatient with his companions. He was eager, perhaps even sexually stimulated, to begin the orgy. He wanted to have his men to rape the women immediately. At this point, it did not matter to him if they practiced coitus interruptus or not. Thrice he cried out his command emphatically: “Verily you do it, verily you do it, verily you do it!”
Sahih Muslim, Book 8, Number 3373:
Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported: “We took women captives, and we wanted to do ‘azl with them. We then asked Allah’s Messenger about it, and he said to us: Verily you do it, verily you do it, verily you do it, but the soul which has to be born until the Day of Judgment must be born.”
Well, they obeyed and they raped. In the course of our discussion, we need to keep clear in mind the objective of this article. The issue at hand is rape and not coitus interruptus. Whether these monsters practiced coitus interruptus or not, it does not in any way diminish or absolve the culpability of their evil crime. Muhammad and Allah sanctioned rape and that is what concerns us in our discussion. Coitus interruptus will not be an issue if rape is strictly forbidden in Islam by Allah. It is really unbelievable how Muslims can submit to a deity whose morality is so vile. Any human being with a trace of decency will shudder at the acts authorized by Allah. Let us now look at the moral values of the Prophet of Islam.
SEX TROPHIES OF THE PROPHET
Today the world continues to witness horrific accounts of rape and enslavement of thousands of innocent women and girls by Muslim terror groups. These terror groups find justification for their evil crimes in the divine teachings of Allah. Another justification for their evil acts is the example set by the Prophet of Islam. It is vital to remember that Muslims are commanded by Allah to emulate their Prophet. And this includes rape. Consider now the example of Muhammad in the following Hadiths.
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 46, Number 717:
Narrated Ibn Aun: Allah’s Prophet had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day.
And Juwairiya is not the only trophy in the collections of Muhammad. Lust knows no boundaries neither does it have any limitations.
Sirat Rasul Allah, p. 464:
After 800-900 male adults of Bani Quraiza were beheaded in batches, and thrown in trenches dug in Madina, the apostle divided their property, wives and children as booty…He took Rayhana d. Amr b. Khunafa for himself. (Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah)
When Muhammad came into power, he attacked the Bani Quraiza tribe–a Jewish tribe residing in Medina. After the conquest, he beheaded all the adult males so that no husbands were left. This verdict was carried out in spite of the fact the Bani Quraiza tribe surrendered unconditionally. The women and children were taken captive and divided among the Muslim warriors. After making her a widow, Muhammad took Rayhana bint Amr for himself. What Muhammad did was grossly evil, wicked, cruel, immoral, ungodly and satanic.
Safiyah bint Huyeiy Ibn Akhtab was another Jewish woman whom Muhammad took for himself as part of his share of the booty. Safiyah was seventeen and beautiful. Acting under his orders, Muslims killed her father, husband and many of her relatives. Kinana, the young husband of Safiyah was tortured to reveal the whereabouts of the treasure of their community. He was finally beheaded. Muhammad was so inflamed sexually that he could no longer control his lustful craving. He sexually assaulted the young widow the very same night he wiped out her entire family.
Ibn Hisham, Book of Tabaqat:
“Safiyah was born in Medinah. She belonged to the Jewish tribe of Banu ‘I-Nadir. When this tribe was expelled from Medinah in the year 4 A.H, Huyaiy was one of those who settled in the fertile colony of Khaibar together with Kinana ibn al-Rabi’ to whom Safiyah was married a little before the Muslims attacked Khaibar. She was then seventeen. One mile from Khaibar. Here the Prophet married Safiyah. She was groomed and made-up for the Prophet by Umm Sulaim, the mother of Anas ibn Malik. They spent the night there. Abu Ayyub al-Ansari guarded the tent of the Prophet the whole night. When, in the early dawn, the Prophet saw Abu Ayyub strolling up and down, he asked him what he meant by this sentry-go; he replied: “I was afraid for you with this young lady. You had killed her father, her husband and many of her relatives, and until recently, she was an unbeliever. I was really afraid for you on her account.” The Prophet prayed for Abu Ayyub al-Ansari (p. 766).
This monster did not even have the decency to allow enough time for this young widow to mourn the death of her loved ones. He raped her on the very same night. This fact alone is sufficient to reveal the debased character of this evil man. There is no compassion in this monster. Just think, which woman would willingly marry the killer of her husband, father, and relatives just moments after he murdered them? Muslims falsely claim that Muhammad compassionately married the widows of war. But who is responsible for these women to become widows in the first place? As Muslim sources themselves reveal, the young and the beautiful became his wives. Muhammad is not only a common thief and murderer but also a confirmed rapist.
Muslims who defend the evil acts of their Prophet must be completely perverse in their values for failing to see the absolute evil nature of this man. Killing men and possessing their women are acts of savagery. There is nothing exemplary in the heinous crimes of this exceedingly evil man.
Surah 48:20: “Allah promises you much booty that ye will capture, and hath given you this in advance, and hath withheld men’s hands from you, that it may be a token for the believers, and that He may guide you on a right path.” (Pickthall)
Allah promises Muslims “with much booty that they will capture.” And this means more slave-girls. And Allah “hath withheld men’s hands” so that the Muslims can rape their wives with ease. Can you imagine having a pimp as your god and a rapist as your prophet? Muslims have the full right granted by Allah to murder, rape, enslave, and steal the property of those who are not Muslims. There is no such thing as the “Golden Rule” of Christianity in Islam.
Pause for a moment and reflect on the utterly destructive nature of Islam. Imagine the agony and the shame that the husbands of the captives suffer as they watch strangers violate the bodies of their loved ones? Can any humiliation be more intense than this? Imagine, what thoughts of self-condemnation must have passed through their minds, as they stood by helplessly and watch Muhammad’s warriors rape their wives like animals. Feel the mental torment that these poor men have to endure. For these unfortunate men whose wives mean everything to them, to say it was a horrific experience is an understatement.
Now consider the destructive nature of Islam from the women’s perspective. She just experienced one of the most horrifying events in her life. She witnessed the destruction of her family and her people. Many husbands, fathers and sons are now dead. Some men are spared either to be sold or enslaved as personal slaves. The women and children are taken captive and distributed among the conquering jihadist. Her children are now separated from her. She is unaware of their whereabouts. She is uncertain of her own as well as the future of her children. Her husband is either dead or enslaved. The memory of her beloved husband haunts her. She sobs uncontrollably. She is now under the total control of her captors. The Muslim warrior has been separated from his wife for some time now. The sexually hungry predator moves swiftly now towards her with just one objective on his mind–to ravage her sexually.
What woman would look upon with loving eyes at the very man who brought death and destruction to her family and people? Do you think that she will now offer herself willingly to copulate with the very man who is responsible for this terrifying agony in her life? And this is the utter nonsense that Muslim apologists want us to believe. They want us to believe that these women delivered themselves willingly to be raped by the conquering jihadist. They want us to believe that these women eagerly accepted and converted to Islam. Can any true conversion into Islam take place under such circumstances? To protect their children, many women converted to Islam. They did so to spare their children from slavery. The children were now raised as Muslims.
You could be a happily married woman living your own life, but if Muhammad and his holy warriors decide to attack you, you will lose everything. While your husband is being killed or enslaved, you would be given to a Muslim warrior who would rape you with the blessings of Allah. This is the evil path that Muhammad has trodden and this is the evil path that he has left for his followers to emulate for all eternity. When you undertake the study of Islam, it is as if you have left the sanity of our universe and entered into a strange world where Rape, Enslavement, Murder, Looting, Massacre, Terror, Violence, and Pedophilia are no longer sins against the laws of God but are the very laws of God.
We will now consider a specific incident to understand the moral climate in Islam at the time of Muhammad. This event will not only verify the authorization of rape in Islam but it will also expose the debased nature of Muhammad. This event will reveal his absolute lack of compassion towards the victims of rape. It will also show the ease with which captives are subjected to rape in Islam. More importantly, this event will confirm that Islam can never be the religion of the true God. A religion that encourages rape in its theology can never come from the true God who is the essence of love.
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 59, Number 637:
Narrated Buraida: The Prophet sent ‘Ali to Khalid to bring the Khumus (of the booty) and I hated Ali, and ‘Ali had taken a bath (after a sexual act with a slave-girl from the Khumus). I said to Khalid, “Don’t you see this (i.e. Ali)?” When we reached the Prophet, I mentioned that to him. He said, “O Buraida! Do you hate Ali?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “Do you hate him, for he deserves more than that from the Khumus.”
“Khumus” is one-fifth of the spoils that is reserved for Muhammad. Let us analyze the above incident:
The Prophet sent Ali to Khalid to bring the Khumus (of the booty) and… Ali had taken a bath (after a sexual act with a slave-girl from the Khumus).
What was Muhammad’s response to Buraida who reported this incident to him?
“Do you hate Ali?…Do not hate him, for he deserves more than that from the Khumus.”
This Hadith clearly reveals that the raping of captives is sanctioned in Islam. This single episode is sufficient to see the dark side of Islam. Ali took a newly captured female prisoner of war and had sex with her. When Muhammad was informed of this, he did not voice a single objection against the crime committed on the helpless prisoner of war. Neither was he concerned about the welfare of this unfortunate woman. Nor was he shocked by the serious attack on the decency of this poor victim. Why? Because raping slave-girls and war-captives is a norm in Allah’s religion. Muhammad’s only concern was for the rights of the rapist. In his view, these women are nothing more than objects of sex for Muslim men to gratify the sexual urges.
Ali was the husband of Muhammad’s daughter, Fatima. Even in today’s sexually permissive world, how many fathers-in-law would defend the rights of their sons-in-law to engage in illicit sexual intercourse? How many fathers-in-law would defend the rights of their sons-in-law to rape defenseless women? But, Muhammad did so in accordance to the divine ordinance of Islam. He defended his son-in-law by saying that “he deserves more than that from the Khumus.” The implication is that Ali deserves to rape more women from the captives. After all, are not captives of war fair games to be raped at will in Islam? After all, does not Allah authorize and encourage rape? After all, is Islam not an utterly depraved religion?
According to the statute of Islam, the raping of non-Muslims is jihad. In the ethics of jihad, it is not a sin to have forced sex as long as she is a non-Muslim captive or slave. In fact, it is not only encouraged in the teachings of Islam but it is also supported by the example of the Prophet of Islam. In Islamic theology, jihad is a like a magical wand. It transforms sinful practices like murder, looting, destruction of property and rape into acts of virtue. Please read the following Hadith carefully. This Hadith describes a typical raid, in which women and children are captured as they attempt to flee from the Muslims.
Sahih Muslim, Book 19, Number 4345:
“…and then we attacked from all sides and reached their watering-place where a battle was fought. Some of the enemies were killed and some were taken prisoners. I saw a group of persons that consisted of women and children (escaping in the distance). I was afraid lest they should reach the mountain before me, so I shot an arrow between them and the mountain. When they saw the arrow, they stopped. So I brought them, driving them along.”
The narrator of the above Hadith is Muhammad’s adopted son. He saw the women trying to escape and he cuts off their route by shooting an arrow into their path. These women are not trying to seek refuge with the Muslim jihadist, as Muslim apologist wants us to believe but were fleeing from the Muslims. The Hadith goes on to recount that Muhammad personally demanded one of the captured women for his own. Let’s continue on with the rest of the Hadith:
“I drove them along until I brought them to Abu Bakr who bestowed that girl upon me as a prize. So we arrived in Medina. I had not yet disrobed her when the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) met me in the street and said: “Give me that girl.”
This is a typical scene from the glorious Golden Days of Islam. “I had not yet disrobed her.” These words reveal the sickening moral climate of Islam. Whenever Muslims conducted a raid, they always thirst for the succulent bodies of infidel women. Each woman captive serves as an opportunity for the pious to rape. Muhammad was no different. In fact, he could not wait to satisfy his sexual cravings. He shamelessly ordered his son, “Give me that girl.” Sexual predators from prophet to foot soldiers. Shame, honor, virtue and self-respect are alien to the religion of Islam. It is vital to remember that these historical narratives were not recorded by the enemies of Islam but by pious Muslims. The immoral deity that Muslims worship has dulled their senses to the extent that they now view rape as an act of virtue. Muslims cannot see that rape–under any circumstance–is a serious sin against God and mankind.
Muhammad’s approval of rape and his own personal participation in it is a constant annoyance for Muslim apologists of our time. Try as they might to defend Muhammad, the overbearing evidences incriminate Muhammad at every turn. All the above verses from the Qur’an and the Hadiths prove that Muhammad allowed Muslims to do to female slaves and captives what are undeniable acts of rape. Muslims allowed by the eternal laws of Allah to rape their slaves and captives. While rape is considered as a serious crime by all descent human beings, it is approved by Allah and his Prophet. Religion is supposed to condemn crimes which are committed against another human being but that is not true with the religion of Islam. The laws of Allah are criminal in nature.
The entire Islamic moral values are centered on the life example and teachings of Muhammad. Everything that has been discussed in this article is not only history but also Sunnah. One of the definitions of Sunnah in Islamic theology is as follows: “The example of the perfect pattern of action and morality practiced by Muhammad.” All morality in Islam is patterned after the example of Muhammad. Everything that he did and said defines what is permitted or forbidden. As noted, Muhammad repeatedly approved and encouraged the raping of infidel captives. Islamic sources themselves reveal that he got first choice of the women. Therefore, if Muhammad participated in the raping of infidels, then rape is a virtue. It is not a sin because Muhammad did it. And he set the pattern for Muslims to follow for all eternity.
All these facts from Islamic sources themselves clearly demonstrate that Allah who sanctions rape in the Qur’an simply cannot be the true God. Allah’s commandments in the Qur’an are in direct violation of the divine Laws of the true God. The teachings of Allah stand condemned by the divine Laws of Jehovah. Centuries before the Qur’an was even revealed, Jehovah stated the following:
Exodus 20:17: “You must not desire your neighbor’s wife.”
1 Thessalonians 4:3-7: For this is the will of God, that you should be holy and abstain from sexual immorality. That every one of you should know how to get possession of his own wife in sanctification and honor: Not in the passion of lust, like the Gentiles that know not God…For God has called us, not for uncleanness, but for holiness.
Exodus 20:14: “Thou shall not commit adultery.”
Matthew 5:27-28: “You have heard that it was said to them: ‘Thou shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you, that whosoever shall look on a woman to lust after her, hath already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
These are the divine standards of Jehovah, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. If Jehovah forbids his worshippers to even develop a desire for another man’s wife, do you think our Creator will authorize his worshippers to rape? Would the true God inspire a verse sanctioning rape in the Qur’an when centuries earlier Christians are warned in the Holy Bible that even looking at a woman lustfully is immoral? We would rightfully expect the true God to maintain the same holy standard of morality. God does not change:
Malachi 3:6: “For I am Jehovah, I do not change.”
Therefore, Allah cannot be the true God. And Muhammad cannot be the prophet of the true God. And the Qur’an cannot be the Word of God. For Christians, there is no place for sex, let alone rape, outside the confinements of his sacred union with a single wife.
Any religion that sanctions rape is both dangerous and destructive. Our mothers, sisters, wives and daughters are not safe as long as this abomination in the guise of religion exists. Perversion and lust knows no boundaries especially when it is religiously sanctioned. Therefore, it is imperative to act and expose this evil cult before it consumes everything that is true, righteous, and good. This religion grows and strives by committing evil.
Muslims consider Islam as the perfect religion. So, how can you improve on something that is already perfect? Thus, Islam will always remain evil. This also means that if the situation changes and Muslims become powerful once again, they will resume their policy of enslavement and rape. The laws of Allah are written on stones–they are unchangeable. The danger lies in the fact that Islam is a violent and expansionist religion that seeks the destruction and the subjugation of all other religions, especially Christianity. Violence against non-Muslims is and has always been an integral characteristic of Islam. And the natural consequence of this destructive ideology is terror, murder, enslavement, and rape.
Islam means Submission. The principle of submission could not be any clearer. By definition, a slave is the most submissive of all people. A slave will submit completely to his or her master. Islam leads to Jihad and Jihad leads to Rape and Rape leads to Sexual Slavery and Sexual Slavery leads to Submission and Submission means Islam. The cycle of evil begins and ends with Islam. Without maintaining the violent nature of Islam, Muslims will be unable to uphold many of the teachings of the Qur’an today. No violence means no rape. That is why Islam was spread by the Sword.
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 73:
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Abi Aufa: Allah’s Apostle said, “Know that Paradise lies under the shade of swords.”
Given below is a recent Fatwa (Islamic ruling) from a widely respected mufti:
ISLAMIC QUESTION & ANSWER, ONLINE WITH MUFTI EBRAHIM DESAI, SOUTH AFRICA. ASK THE IMAM:
“It may, superficially, appear distasteful to copulate with a woman who is not a man’s legal wife, but once Sharia makes something lawful, we have to accept it as lawful, whether it appeals to our taste, or not; and whether we know its underlying wisdom or not.”
Imagine, Muslim scholars believe that there must be some “underlying wisdom” behind the Allah’s authorization to rape the captives of war. We have come to the conclusion of our analysis of The Divine Authorization of Rape in Islam. The evidences provided in this article are by no means exhaustive. We hope that this article will help sincerely seekers of truth, both Muslims and non-Muslims, to see the dangers of Islam. Women who are tempted to convert to this religion must stop and think before it is too late for them. They must realize that according to Allah it is “lawful and good” to rape women.
Surah 8:69: So enjoy what you have gotten of booty in war, lawful and good, and be afraid of Allah. Certainly, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Hilali-Khan)
As we have noted, not only did Allah sanction the raping of captives, but he also authorized Muslims to rape these helpless women in the presence of their husbands. Can a religion as debased as this originate with the true God? You be the judge.
