HARD WORKING AND BUSY

The 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:

Narrated Anas:

"The Prophet used to go round (have sexual relations with) all his wives in one night, and he had nine wives"



A FAIR MAN

The 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.. .

Muslim 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).

After 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).

Bukhari 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
.


 
PRAGMATIC

The 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  to 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.

Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 130

Narrated 'Abdullah:

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

Jihadis , 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:

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:

that 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.

 

QUICK THINKER

The 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 her.

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  Ayesha was also his foster niece by the same token. But Mo really wanted her.

 Muslim Book 62, Number 18:

Narrated 'Ursa:
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."
