Love Story: Prophet Muhammad and Rayhana Fall in Love on the Day of Qurayza

Introductory Background

I have previously published an article on how Muhammad and the early Muslims committed and fully executed the genocide of Bani Qurayza. Historical narrations give us a number between 600 and 900 adult men who were beheaded by Muhammad and the early Muslims. Muhammad himself took an active role in beheading some people. You could say he was a “hands-on” prophet!. I titled my previous article “In honor of Bani Qurayza” due to the fact that their demise was done by an evil Islamic act. Muslim apologetics try once and again to defend Muhammad and his companion mass-murderers from the charge of being mass-murderers. The problem is they are lying to themsleves. No matter how you look at the Bani Qurayza events, the ultimate responsibility of this gruesome genocide rests on the shoulders of the evil prophet of Islam. Even if in fact Bani Qurayza leaders betrayed their treaty with Muhammad (a matter that is actually not supported by the historical narrations I have studied), why behead and kill all adult men of that tribe? The fact is Muhammad’s and the early Muslims’ hands are saturated with the innocent blood of the men of Bani Qurayza. Those men were burried en-mass under the market streets of modern day Medina in Saudi Arabia. Their blood cries loud for any human to condemn Muhammad and the early Muslims for such a gruesome crime.
Historical evidence is available as to why Muhammad killed all adult men of Bani Qurayza. This evidence comes to us from the events that took place after the this evil massacre. In Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat (The Life of Muhammad translate by A. Guillaume, twenty first impression (2007), P. 466) we read the following:

“Then the apostle divided their property, wives, and children of B. Qurayza among the Muslims, and he made known on that day the shares of horse and men, and took out the fifth. A horseman got three shares, two for the horse and one for his rider. A man without a horse got one share. On the day of Bani Qurayza there were thirty-six horses. It was the first booty on which lots were cast snd the fifth was taken. According to its precedent and what the apostle did the divisions were made, and it remained the custom for raids.
Then the apostle sent Sa’d bin Zayd Al-Ansari brother of bin ‘Abdul’Ashhal with some of the captive women of Bani Qurayza to Najd and he sold them for horses and weapons.”

The above quote is a clear evidence of the economic reasons for the genocide of this tribe. Muhammad and the Muslims wanted booty, and they had an easy target in the Bani Qurayza tribe. Its all about the booty.

The Love Story

On the same page quoted above we read the following:

“The apostle had chosen one of their women for himself, Rayhana bint ‘Amr bin Khunafa, one of the women of B. ‘Amr b. Qurayza, and she remained with him until she died, in his power. The apostle had proposed to marry her and put the veil on her, but she said: ‘ Nay, leave me in your power, for that will be easier for me and for you.’ So he left her. She had repugnance toward Islam when she was captured and clung to Judaism. So the apostle put her aside and felt some displeasure.”

The quote in the Sirat continues to tell that she, Rayhana, eventually became a Muslim and Muhammad was happy for this. I doubt that the story of her becoming a Muslim is an Islamic historic lie. Muhammad had killed all her adult male relatives, and, justifiably, she showed repugnance towards Islam (I am sure to Muhammad too). Would such a person become a Muslim and follow the person that killed all adult members of her extended family?
In any case, Rayhana made an honorable choice. She remained a sex slave instead of becoming the wife of the mass-murderer who committed a gruesome genocide and killed all adults in her tribe and family.
Some love stories were hard on the holy prophet. Methinks it was his penis that fell in love with Rayhana. He had an eye for good looking young ones. He was around fifty eight years old, she..a young fifteen year old girl. Talk about a sick old man !!
