Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) Never Hurt a Fly!
I was in tears. It was a sodden morning in November and the sky was burdened with black clouds. So was my mind, and I was crying profusely.
No, I have not lost a loved one, nor have I heard any bad news. The cry was for joy and passion. I was reading the biography of our great prophet Mohammed (PBUH), and I was in tears. What a great man he was! His intelligence, kindness and love for (Muslim) humans can not be compared with any other human being, yet there are plenty of bad people who have dedicated themselves to giving the great prophet a bad name. How could people hold the prophet responsible for serial killing when he never hurt a fly?
Just on one occasion, our prophet observed a fly dipping itself in a glass of water. He could have saved the poor creature’s life, but he wanted to teach his disciples an important scientific discovery and he allowed the fly to kill itself. Imam Bukhari records, “Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said “If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease” (Book of Medicine).
So far, our advanced medical science has failed to find an antidote in a fly’s wings, but it is their inability. Someday, science will gratefully prove the theory of our prophet. Until then it is safe to drink a glass of milk with a dead fly in it.
The above hadith clearly proves that the prophet did not kill the fly intentionally. However, he had to kill many humans for several reasons, which he did with extreme care and kindness.
Out of the many virtues that our prophet had, his talent of seeing the future, the ability to create a successful espionage network, the capacity of making decisive decisions and the capability of extending generous gestures to the followers are the most important. Sometimes, Gabriel the angel acted as a CIA agent; at other times, human spies brought news from the enemy. One of these incidents was the case of Khalid b. Sufyan. An informant told the prophet of a particular Kafir who was planning to kill him. Most non-Muslims would argue, naively, the informer may have his personal interest, but our prophet had the right to kill non-Muslims. Hence, it really does not matter if a non-Muslim was killed by mistake.
After receiving the news, Mohammed (PBUH) immediately dispatched Abdullah b. Unays to take care of the culprit. Evidently, the followers of the prophet were very intelligent and they knew how to make a friendship before killing the enemy. Mr. Unays talked to Khalid Sufyan and when he gained his trust, slashing the head was a piece of cake. According to Sirat Rasul Allah,
“I walked a short distance with him and when my chance came I struck him with my sword and killed him, and went off leaving his women bending over him”(Ishaq 666).
After the successful operation, it was time to give the reward and the great prophet presented the Medal of Honor. Though most cynics would cry foul and may compare it with the famous “carrot and stick” cliché, the prophet indeed indulged Mr. Unays with a stick.“Then he took me into his house and gave me a stick telling me to keep it by me. When I went out with it the people asked me what I was doing with a stick. I told them that the apostle had given it to me and told me to keep it, and they said. ‘Why don’t you go back to the apostle and ask him why?’ So, I did so, and he said, ‘It is a sign between you and me on the resurrection day. There are few men who will be carrying sticks then.’ So Abdullha b. Unays fastened it to his sword and it remained with him until his death, when he ordered that it should be put in his winding sheet and it was buried with him”(Ishaq 666).
The stick was not only a symbol of honor; it would further help Mohammed (PBUH) to identify Mr. Unays on the judgment day. Such a brilliant and realistic idea proves how the prophet thought of the future. It would be a good idea for all non-Muslims to take a stick with them when they are heading towards their graves or at the time of the cremation.
The matter of the stick business, like many other items of Islamic science, has a scientific significance. It is obvious that the person holding the stick will be communicating with the prophet through the stick. Now compare the stick with the telephone poles. Though many inventors, including Antonio Meucci, claimed the invention of the telephone, it was Alexander Graham Bell who successfully patented the discovery. However, in order to take the telephone line from one city to another, they used wooden poles, an idea that was stolen from the prophet’s symbolic gesture of presenting the stick to his follower.
Often, non-Muslims as well as ex-Muslims brag about the killing of 800-900 Jews in Medina. Before finding the truth, we must examine what the Jews are doing to the world. Our Faithfreedom.org resident, brother Abdul Hasheem, is an expert Jew spotter. Just by looking at the writing style he can easily confirm who is a Jew in disguise. I have learnt quite a few techniques from him.
The so-called Western democracy, freedom and human rights do not fall under Islamic jurisdiction. In fact, Islam has a much better scheme to run the world. However, Hollywood movies and the stars have a great influence among Muslim youths. Rosie O’Donnell, the famous TV star, for instance, has recently questioned the authenticity of the official investigation of the 9/11 attack, which of course points the finger to the Jews. Another intelligent movie star, Mel Gibson, has spoken the truth. He, too, said, “F…ing Jews…the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world” (Time magazine).
The killing of school children in Beslan was unquestionably a handy work of MOSAD agents. Who do you think bombed in Bali? It was Jews for sure. Look at the other incidents in Kashmir, Palestine, Bosnia and Chechnya, and everywhere in the world. Jews are killing innocent people and blaming Muslims. Did you know that Osama Bin Laden is a Jew?
Our prophet Mohammed (PBUH) had a great relationship with our god Allah (SWA). Being a god, Allah (SWA) knew what the Jews were going to do in the future. Consequently, our prophet had no choice but to eliminate the Jews from the earth. His venture was not immoral or inhumane; in fact, he had to stop further rancor of the Jews for a better world. Ishaq reports,“Then the apostle went out to the market of Medina (which is still a market today) and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches. ….There were 600 or 600 in all, though some put the figures as high as 800 or 900. … This went on until the apostle made an end of them”(Ishaq 464).
Imagine the sufferings of our prophet! He had to slaughter one after another under the hot desert sun. He was sweating and his mouth was dry, but he did not stop slaughtering because he cared for mankind.
Evidently, our holy prophet always took a materialistic approach to life. Whereas killing the adult Jews was necessary, he spared the lives of young ones and the women for a greater interest. The women were thankful for not being killed, appreciated the killing of their loved ones, and dedicated their lives to entertaining the pious Muslims. However, some of the women along with their children were sold as slaves. It was indeed a great business plan and the proceedings from such sales were used for expanding Islam, the peaceful religion.
Typically, boys grow pubic hair in the advent of their teenage years and teenagers are famous for notorious behavior. Our great prophet, being the friend of all-knowing Allah, knew the characteristics of a teenager. Hence, he ordered the killing of anyone who had pubic hair. According to a hadith by Abu Dawood,“Narrated Atiyyah al-Qurazi: I was among the captives of Banu Qurayzah. They (the Companions) examined us, and those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, and those who had not were not killed. I was among those who had not grown hair.”
