WORKING AND BUSY
Apostle was a very hard working and busy man. Travelling and raiding took most of
his time. When in Madina he used to be even busier with all the prophetic
chores. His nights were the busiest. Between having sex with all his nine
wives, taking baths and making wudu after each encounter, and leading
isha, taujjud and fajar prayers in between , he
hardly had time to sleep. That only left him daytime for other chores and
having sex with concubines. Remember it was the day
time that when
Habsa found him sleeping
with Maria in her (Habsa's) bed (surah tehrim 66).
Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 6:
"The Prophet used to go round
(have sexual relations with) all his wives in one night, and he had nine
apostle believed in fair compensation. Whenever he liked a captured woman
falling in another jihadi's lot, and wanted her for himself,
he compensated him fairly.. .
Book 008, Number 3329:
Anas, (Allah be pleased with him) reported: Safiyya (Allah be pleased with
her) fell to the lot of Dihya in the spoils of war, and they praised her
in the presence of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: We
have not seen the like of her among the captives of war. He sent (a
messenger) to Dihya and he gave him whatever he demanded ( he was given
two young cousins of Safia in leiu of Safia by the prophet). He then sent
Safia to my mother and asked her to embellish her. Allah's Messenger (may
peace be upon him) then got out of Khaibar until when he was on the other
side of it, he halted, and a tent was pitched for him ( He spent the night
with her there).
Mustaliq raid, Juwairiya, the young
and pretty wife of their murdered chief , fell to the the lot of Thabit Bin Qais
. The apostle paid Thabit 9 oakes of gold (an exhorbitant price) and
bought her from him ( Apostle, could have kicked Thabit's ass for asking
such a large sum for something he got for free, but
he was fair and paid the asking price).
yol 3,Book46, No. 717
"Narrated Ibn Aun:
I wrote a letter to Nafi and Nafi wrote in reply to my letter that the
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.
apostle was a very pragmatic man. After every raid he used a lottery
system to award captured women to be fair. Often many jihadis got nothing
while others got young beauties. It can be be very frustrating
sleep alone, when the fellow jihadi
in the next bed is sleeping with a young beauty . Some jihadis used to go
berserk with frustration and threatened
to castrate themselves. Apostle being a pragmatic man did not want castrated jihadis in his fighting force. He therefore allowed them to
use prostitutes in nearby villages.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 130
We used to participate in the holy battles led by Allah's Apostle and we
had nothing (no wives) with us. So we said, "Shall we get ourselves
castrated?" He forbade us that and then allowed us to marry women
with a temporary contract
, who got captured women, used to enjoy them for a while and then trade
them in, at a slave market for a new woman or just cash. Problem
was that whenever those women got
pregnant, their value went down fast. Slave markets used to offer pregnant
women low prices. So they asked apostle�s opinion about coitus iterrruptus. Apostle was pragmatic. His
interest was increasing muslim population.
Bukhari, Volume 3,
Book 34, Number 432:
Abu Said Al-Khudri:
while he was sitting with Allah's Apostle he said, "O Allah's
Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are
interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interrupt
us?" The Prophet said, "Do you really do that? It is better for
you not to do it. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will
surely come into existence.
apostle could think fast. See how he handled the following two situations
with his quick thinking.
Hamza's daughter was ugly and Mo didn't want
Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 37:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
It was said to the Prophet, "Won't you marry the daughter of Hamza?"
He said, "She is my foster niece (brother's daughter). "
But Abu's pretty daughter
6 year old
was also his foster niece by the same token. But Mo really wanted her.
Muslim Book 62, Number 18:
The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for 'Aisha's hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said
"But I am your brother." The Prophet said, "You are my
brother in Allah's religion and His Book, but she (Aisha)
is lawful for me to marry."
