Muhammad: A Lecher
accuse Muhammad of lewdness, impropriety, indecency,
lustfulness and promiscuity and as such consider him unfit
for the station and rank that he claimed for himself.
Far from being �the best of the creation�, Muhammad was
lewd- a pervert.

Muhammad by the ruler of

Muhammad had sex without marrying her.
commentator and historian al-Tabari wrote:
�God granted Rayhanah bt. Zayd of the Banu
Quraiza to his Messenger [as booty]. Mariyah the Copt was presented to
the Messenger of God, given to him by al-Muqawqis, the ruler of
, and she gave birth to the Messenger of God�s son Ibrahim. These
were the Messenger�s wives; six of them were from the Quraish.
Tabari counts Mariyah among Muhammad�s wives, he wasn�t denying
she was his slave girl, his concubine, but was using "wife"
in the sense of one whom Muhammad slept with and who mothered his

Concubines,� Tabari wrote: �They were Mariyah bt. Sham�un, the
Copt, and Rayhanah bt. Zayd al-Quraziyyah who, it is said, was of the
Banu al-Nadir. An account of them has been given above. (Ibid., p.
He stated, �The Messenger of God also had a
eunuch called Mabur, who was presented to him by al-Muqawqis with two
slave girls, one of them was called mariyah, whom he took as a
concubine, and the other [was called] Sirin, whom he gave to Hassan b.

Mariyah, the Prophet�s CONCUBINE and the
mother of his son, Ibrahim.
to Ibn �Umar [al-Waqidi] � Ya�qub b. Muhammad b. Abi
Sa�sa�ah � �Abdallah b. �Abd al-Rahman b. Abi Sa�sa�ah:
In the year 7/May 11, 628-April 30, 629, al-Muqawqas, lord of
Alexandria, sent to the Prophet Mariyah, her sister Sirin, a thousand
gold coins, twenty fine robes, his mule Duldul, and his donkey
�Ufayr, or Ya�fur. � The Prophet admired Umm Ibrahim
["Mother of Ibrahim," Mariyah�s title], who was
fair-skinned and beautiful. He lodged her in al-�Aliyah, at the
property nowadays called of Umm Ibrahim. He used to visit her there
and ordered her to veil herself, [but] he had intercourse with her BY
VIRTUE OF HER BEING HIS PROPERTY�
is, Mariyah was ordered to veil herself as did the Prophet�s wives,
BUT HE DID NOT MARRY HER � (Ibid., p. 194)
Mariyah was working at the service of Hafsa, daughter of Umar who was
one of Muhammad�s wives. One-day
Muhammad went to Hafsa�s house and upon setting gaze at Mariyah,
decides to have intercourse with her. He get rid of Hafsa, he
concocted a lie. He told her that her father Umar had wanted to meet
her. When Hafsa left,
Muhammad took Mariyah to bed and had intercourse with her. Upon seeing
her father and being assured that he had not sent for her, Hafsa,
returned home to find the door locked from inside. She sat behind the
closed door until her illustrious husband finished his business with
her maid. When the door was opened and Muhammad came out, she notices
sweet dripping from his face and realized what he had been up to. She
becomes hysteric, complaining that he had tricked so he could enjoy
her maid in her bed. Muhammad pleads with her to calm down and to
placate her he promised not to sleep with Mariah again and bade her
not to divulge that secret to others.
Hafsa unable to keep the secret relayed everything to her friend Aisha
who also turned against Muhammad and these two young ladies, jointly
with his other wives, caused him much anguish. Muhammad
decided to punish all of his wives by not sleeping with them for one
month. Depriving one�s
wives sexually and beating them are other forms of punishment
recommended in the Quran. Q.4:34.
The rebellion of his wives for having sex with a maid angered the
Prophet of Allah who vowed not to sleep with any of them for one
month. That of course
would have been too much hardship for the beloved messenger of Allah. Therefore
the maker of the Universe, in his mercy intervened and reveals the
Sura Tahrim (Banning). In this Sura, Allah lovingly �rebukes� his
prophet for being so hard on himself and for depriving himself from
what he really likes and has been made lawful to him, just to placate
O Prophet! Why do you ban (for
yourself) that which All�h has made lawful to you, seeking to please
your wives? And All�h is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
2. All�h has already
ordained for you (O men), the dissolution
of your oaths. And All�h is
your Maula (Lord, or Master, or Protector, etc.) and He is the
All-Knower, the All-Wise.
3. And (remember) when
the Prophet disclosed a matter
in confidence to one of his wives (Hafsah), so when she told it
(to another i.e. 'Aishah), and All�h made it known to him, he
informed part thereof and left a part. Then when he told her (Hafsah)
thereof, she said: "Who told you this?" He said: "The
All-Knower, the All-Aware (All�h) has told me".
4. If you two (wives of
the Prophet, namely 'Aishah and Hafsah) turn in repentance to All�h,
(it will be better for you), your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet likes), but if you help one another
against him (Muhammad), then verily, All�h is his Maula (Lord, or
Master, or Protector, etc.), and Jibrael (Gabriel), and the righteous
among the believers, and furthermore, the angels are his helpers.
5. It may be if he
divorced you (all) that his Lord will give him instead of you, wives
better than you, Muslims (who submit to All�h), believers, obedient
to All�h, turning to All�h in repentance, worshipping All�h
sincerely, fasting or emigrants (for All�h's sake), previously
married and virgins. �Q.
Muhammad had made an oath not to have sex with her maid, he could not
resist the temptation. It was a difficult situation. A
solution had to be found and no one but Allah could help. Nothing
is impossible when you have the almighty God in your sleeve. The
creator of heaven and earth intervened and gave his prophet the green
light to follow his heart's desire. In Sura Tahrim Allah licensed
Muhammad to have his fling and not pay attention to his wives
complaints. What can one ask more? Allah
was so concerned about Muhammad's carnal pleasures that he even
allowed ALL MEN to break their oaths as a bounty.
is also worthy of mention that Muhammad, upon learning Hafsa
had reveal his secret, lied. He claimed Allah had
made it known to him that Hafsa had spoken, when that was obvious that
she was the only one who could have done it.
reaction to the above verses, Ayisha, who was not only pretty but also
witty, is reported to have said, "Your God indeed hastens to meet
the Surah Tahrim (66) Omar said:
The Prophet did not go
to his wives because of the secret which Hafsa had disclosed to 'Aisha,
and he said that he would not go to his wives for one month as he was
angry with them when Allah admonished him (for his oath that he would
not approach Mariyah). Bukhari
