Allah is Dictatorial, Racist and Misogynistic
24 Dec, 2006
Muhammad created best, dictator of heaven & earth, makes his own law, demand fear, disregard treaties, evict unbelievers, destroy infidels, Arab supremacist, Arabs best creation, hates blacks, likes white faces, all religion but Islam invalid, take revenge, maim you for forgetting Quran, Sunnah from Allah, male chauvinist.
Allah had created Muhammad to be the best of His creations
In the following hadith Allah declares clearly that He had chosen the Arabs and made Muhammad the best of His creation (Sahih Muslim, 30.5653).
Wathila b. al-Asqa' reported: I heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily Allah granted eminence to Kinana from amongst the descendants of Isma'il and he granted eminence to the Quraish amongst Kinana and he granted eminence to the Quraish amongst Banu Hashim and he granted me eminence from the tribe of Banu Hashim.
In verse 3:110 Allah further commands that Muslims (Islam) are the best of righteous people. Ibn Kathir provides the ‘genuine’ reason why Allah has made Muslims the best people on earth. He writes that the Muslims are the best nation because they bring the unbelievers tied in chains on their necks, that is: capture them in wars, and later force them into Islam (Link).
The above hadith simply confirms Ibn Kathir's assertion of the bigoted and chauvinist nature of Allah.
Let us read another verse from the Qur'an.
Allah promises the sovereignty of the believers on earth; and will establish the authority of Allah’s chosen religion (Islam); disbelievers are miscreants…24:55
On the explanation of the above verse, Ibn Kathir writes thatAllah has made Muslims the leaders and rulers of mankind through whom He would reform the world and to whom people would submit, so that they would have in exchange a safe security after their fear (Link).
Allah is the owner of the heavens and the earth; He is adamant on establishing His dictatorship
Many verses in the Qur’an declare that Allah, truly, is a dictator. He rules earth in an absolute dictatorial manner. Below, I am providing excerpts of a few selected verses from the Qur’an. Please note that in many of these verses; it is quite clear that the speaker is not Allah, but someone else, most probably Muhammad. This should leave us beyond a shadow of doubt that Allah’s dictatorship is actually Muhammad (i.e. Islam’s) dictatorship.
Exalt Allah, He is the owner of the Throne (Muhammad is talking here and not Allah)…23:116
The dominion of the heavens and the earth belong to Allah alone, and to Allah is the final goal…24:42
Sovereignty belongs to Allah; there is no Allah but Him. Everything will perish except Allah's face (Allah has a face)…28:88
Allah is the sole owner of whatsoever in the heavens and on earth…34:1
There is only one Allah…37:4
Allah has the supreme authority (His kingdom) on the heavens and the earth…57:5
All Kingships is with Allah…67:1
Allah makes His
The dictatorial disposition Allah is not limited only to exercising His authority and dominance on all human. Allah makes His laws arbitrarily, at will. The Sharia expert Abdur Rahman Doi has no hesitation in propagating that Allah is the Law Giver (Doi, 1998, p 2). Quoting the Qur’an and ahadith he confirms that the only law on earth should be the Islamic Sharia (ibid) because Allah’s dictatorship is executed only through Sharia which is derived from the Book (the Qur’an and ahadith) and enforced by the Balance (Islamic court of law).
Let us read a few sample verses from the Qura’an on Allah’s absolute dictatorship through Sharia (the fountain‑head of Islam).
Allah had sent Muhammad (to the people of Mecca) as a messenger to
preach the Qur’an and to teach subjects (Sharia laws) which they did
Allah had sent Muhammad to invite people to obey Allah’s orders
(sharia laws); if the unbelievers seek forgiveness then Allah and
Muhammad could forgive them…4:64
Qur’an is sent as a truth; it contains laws to judge people (i.e.,
Qur’an is a book of law)…4:105
Allah’s law (Sharia) is binding to all…4:135
Allah accepts only Sharia and no other laws…7:29, 57:25
Allah is the Law‑giver; He appointed Muhammad to implement the only
correct laws (Sharia laws)…45:18
Allah demands fear from His believers
Fear is the prime motivation which forces people to obey a dictator. No wonder then that Allah demands fear from human. He orders them to fear Him and Muhammad and to obey them (24:52–53).
YUSUFALI: It is such as obey Allah and His Messenger, and fear Allah and do right, that will win (in the end), [Q 24.052]
YUSUFALI: They swear their strongest oaths by Allah that, if only thou wouldst command them, they would leave (their homes). Say: "Swear ye not; Obedience is (more) reasonable; verily, Allah is well acquainted with all that ye do." [Q 024.053]
Here are a few ahadith which demonstrate how Allah, through Muhammad, inflicts absolute fear on ordinary people.
Muhammad used a lash to beckon and order people...(Sahih Bukhari, 2.26.731)
Volume 2, Book 26, Number 731: Narrated Ibn Abbas. :
I proceeded along with the Prophet on the day of 'Arafat (9th Dhul-Hijja). The Prophet heard a great hue and cry and the beating of camels behind him. So he beckoned to the people with his lash, "O people! Be quiet. Hastening is not a sign of righteousness."
Paradise is under the shades of swords…(Sahih Bukhari, .4.52.73, 210)
Volume 4, Book 52, Number 73: Narrated 'Abdullah bin Abi Aufa:
Allah's Apostle said, "Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords."
Volume 4, Book 52, Number 210: Narrated Salim Abu An-Nadr:
The freed slave of 'Umar bin 'Ubaidullah who was 'Umar's clerk: 'Abdullah bin Abi Aufa wrote him (i.e. 'Umar) a letter that contained the following:--
"Once Allah's Apostle (during a holy battle), waited till the sun had declined and then he got up among the people and said, "O people! Do not wish to face the enemy (in a battle) and ask Allah to save you (from calamities) but if you should face the enemy, then be patient and let it be known to you that Paradise is under the shades of swords." He then said,, "O Allah! The Revealer (sic)of the (Holy) Book, the Mover of the clouds, and Defeater of Al-Ahzab (i.e. the clans of infidels), defeat them (sic) infidels and bestow victory upon us."
Like a supreme dictator, Allah dissolves treaties at will
Muhammad made compact with his adversaries only to break them at will when situation permitted. He did this because Allah wanted it that way—to force his will at the right time.
Let us read verse 9:2–3 to witness the naked aggression of a dictatorial Allah. Mind you, sura 9 is the last sura, so its provision is the latest and still applicable today whenever Islam plants its root firmly in any place on earth.
Allah and Muhammad dissolve the treaty with the pagans…9:2-3
YUSUFALI: Go ye, then, for four months, backwards and forwards, (as ye will), throughout the land, but know ye that ye cannot frustrate Allah (by your falsehood) but that Allah will cover with shame those who reject Him. [Q009.002]
YUSUFALI: And an announcement from Allah and His Messenger, to the people (assembled) on the day of the Great Pilgrimage,- that Allah and His Messenger dissolve (treaty) obligations with the Pagans. If then, ye repent, it were best for you; but if ye turn away, know ye that ye cannot frustrate Allah. And proclaim a grievous penalty to those who reject Faith. [Q009.003]
Allah grabs by force lands of the unbelievers (non-Muslims)
The early history of Islam is the history of subjugation by force of non–Muslims. It is the history written with rivers of blood and Islamic mayhem.
Eminent Islamic historian, Baladhuri readily admits that Muhammad had said all districts and cities were conquered by force, but al-Madinah was conquered by the Qur’an…(Baladhuri, Tr. Philip K. Hitti, 2002, p 21). He even writes that the first Islamic land annexed by force was the Jewish land of Banu Nadir, a Jewish tribe who lived in Medina when Muhammad migrated there (ibid, p 33).
Let us pursue the following verses from the Qur’an to understand how much Allah craves to grab forcibly infidel lands. We might wonder why, despite the entire earth to Him, Allah still has to resort to plunder and bloodshed to grab the land of the unbelievers.
Allah gradually reduces the land controlled by the unbelievers...21:44
Allah destroyed many population, deserted many lands and then Allah appropriated those lands (Allah grabs the land of the unbelievers)…28:58
Allah gradually reduces the land under the control of the unbelievers from its outlying borders (Also see 46:27)…13:41
On the above verse, Ibn Kathir writes that the verse refers to Muslims gaining upper hand over idolaters.
Allah made Muhammad the heir to the properties of the people of the Book (the appropriation of B. Qurayzah Jews’ lands)...33:27
It was Allah who banished the unbelievers amongst the people of the book (Banu Nadir Jews) from their homes through terror (cutting down of date palm trees)...59:2
To appropriate infidel lands Allah even exhorts that the unbelievers must fear Muslims. Allah truly declares that Muslims are terrorists as is explicated by the tafsir of ibn Kathir.
God casts terror in the hearts of unbelievers; they will reside in hell…3:151
To clarify Allah’s mind as depicted in this verse, ibn Kathir writes that Allah next conveys the good news that He will put fear of the Muslims and feelings of subordination to the Muslims in the hearts of their disbelieving enemies, because of their Kufr and Shirk (Link).
Allah loves to destroy infidels (non-Muslims)
Here are more verses from the Qur’an to describe the cruelty of Allah towards the non–believers.
Allah helps the Muslims to defeat and destroy the unbelievers…3:127
Allah destroyed the Midyan infidels through an earthquake…7:91
When the unbelievers rejoice bumper crops without attributing that to Allah, He destroys their crop by levelling the crop field (through natural calamity)…10:24
Allah will destroy the wrong‑doers (unbelievers)…14:13
When Allah decides to destroy a population He warns its leaders, they indulge in insolence for a brief period, and then Allah inflicts on them an utter destruction...17:16
Allah has destroyed many generations after Noah; He is the most efficient to punish the sinners…17:17
Truth has arrived and falsehood has perished (this verse was revealed when Muhammad conquered Mecca and entered Ka’ba and destroyed 360 idols there)...17:81
Allah destroys whomever He is angry with...20:81
Allah destroyed all the community of the unbelievers, yet they disbelieve…21:6
In the past Allah had destroyed many populations; He will surely do this in the present time...21:11
Allah’s dictatorial nature does not spare even the children. In many Islamic Jihad raids, Allah’s soldiers had killed tender‑aged, innocent children of the pagans. This cruelty of Allah is still alive today. The world watched with utter horror how Allah’s foot soldiers killed mercilessly the kindergarten children in Beslan, Russia.
To understand, why such Islamic slaughter of children might never end, we need to read the following ahadith.
Muhammad approved killing of women and children of the pagans because they (the children) are from them…(Sahih Bukhari 4.52.256)
Volume 4, Book 52, Number 256: Narrated As-Sab bin Jaththama:
The Prophet passed by me at a place called Al-Abwa or Waddan, and was asked whether it was permissible to attack the pagan warriors at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, "They (i.e. women and children) are from them (i.e. pagans)." I also heard the Prophet saying, "The institution of Hima is invalid except for Allah and His Apostle."
Later, Allah’s (read Muhammad's) conscience was so deeply perturbed that he had to advise his fighters to spare women and children in some special cases. These exceptions only for a very few raids and plunder.
Let us read the following hadith:
In some Ghazwas (Jihad) Muhammad forbade the killing of women and children… (Sahih Bukhari, 4.52.257)
Volume 4, Book 52, Number 257: Narrated 'Abdullah:
During some of the Ghazawat of the Prophet a woman was found killed. Allah's Apostle disapproved the killing of women and children.
Muhammad blessed Jarir for conducting the genocide (including the children) at Dhu Khalasa…(Sahih Bukhari, 4.52.262)
Volume 4, Book 52, Number 262: Narrated Jarir:
Allah's Apostles said to me, "Will you relieve me from Dhul-Khalasa? Dhul-Khalasa was a house (of an idol) belonging to the tribe of Khath'am called Al-Ka'ba Al-Yama-niya. So, I proceeded with one hundred and fifty cavalry men from the tribe of Ahmas, who were excellent knights. It happened that I could not sit firm on horses, so the Prophet stroke me over my chest till I saw his finger-marks over my chest, he said, 'O Allah! Make him firm and make him a guiding and rightly guided man.' " Jarir proceeded towards that house, and dismantled and burnt it. Then he sent a messenger to Allah's Apostle informing him of that. Jarir's messenger said, "By Him Who has sent you with the Truth, I did not come to you till I had left it like an emancipated or gabby camel (i.e. completely marred and spoilt)." Jarir added, "The Prophet asked for Allah's Blessings for the horses and the men of Ahmas five times."
By now, the enduring readers of this prolix series must had had a good grasp of Allah. The most dominant aspect of this is that Allah is a pure dictator—a tyrannical ruler who often favours a particular race (Arabs of the Quraysh stock, to be very precise) to subjugate the entire world to their language, culture, tradition, food, clothing, religion…and so on. In this part we shall examine in detail this dictatorial and racist nature of Allah. One aspect which is generally common in all dictators is that they hate women’s freedom and their right for sexual equality. Allah is no exception to this misogynist nature. Therefore, study of dictatorial, racist and misogynist nature of Allah is absolutely important if we were to understand the mindset of today’s Islamist terrorism and Islamic mayhem around the globe. Once we read this part of the essay we will comprehend why the Islamists are doing what they are doing—this is just to please Allah. It is quite similar to the Nazis who were bent on pleasing their dictator Hitler.
So, let us start with the first dictatorial nature
Allah is a white Arab supremacist
In the previous episode (part–7) of this essay we had a short glimpse of the racist nature of Allah. Here are more compelling evidences to label Allah as an absolute racist, chauvinist bigot. He is in complete favour of the white skinned Arabs, especially the Quraysh.
Let us read what ibn Sa’d, one of the earliest biographers of Muhammad has to say on this.
Allah favours Arab racism—prophet is to be of Quraysh stock and of white complexion.
In plain language, ibn Sad says that only a white Quraysh Arab has the absolute right to be a prophet. Here is the excerpt from ibn Sa’d:
He (Ibn Sa’d said: Hisham Ibn Muhammad Ibn al‑Sa’ib al‑Kalbi informed us; he said: al‑Walid Ibn ‘Abd Allah Ibn Jumay’ al‑Zuhri related to me on the authority of a son of ‘Abd al‑Rahman Ibn Mawhab Ibn Ribah al‑Ashari; an ally of Banu Zuhrah, on the authority of his father; he said: Mukhramah Ibn Nawfal al‑Zuhri related to me; he said: I heard my mother Ruqayqah Bint Abi Sayfi ibn Hashim Ibn ‘Abd Manaf, who was his (‘Abd al‑Muttalib’s) contemporary, relating: The Quraysh faced several years of drought; then wealth exhausted and they were on the verge of extinction. She continued: In a dream I heard a person saying: O people of the Quraysh! The Prophet who is to be raised will be from among you; it is now the time of his emergence, and with him you will get plenty and abundance; so make a search of the man who is of noble birth, of high stature, white (in complexion), with eyebrows joined, eye‑lashes long, hair curly, cheeks smooth, and the cartilage of his nose thin. Then ask him (the person answering this description) to come out with his children and one member from every family should accompany him. All of them should be cleansed, then apply perfumes, kiss the rukn of the sanctuary and mount the peak of Abu Qubays; this man should come forward and pray for rains; others should only say Amen! Then rain will come to you. In the morning she related her dream to the people who made a search and found ‘Abd al‑Muttalib answering those qualities. They assembled round him and from every family a person came out and did as the woman ordered them to do. They mounted Abu Qubays, and the Prophet, then only a boy, was with them. ‘Abd al‑Muttalib came forward and said: O my Lord! They are Thy slaves and children of Thy slaves, and Thy maids and daughters of Thy maids; Thou seest what has befallen us; several years have elapsed since it has rained; our animals which have hoofs or talons have perished and we are also on the verge of death. (O Lord!) keep away this famine from us and bring plenty and prosperity to us! They had not ye returned to their places when the valleys were over‑flown (with water). They had received rains due to blessings on the Prophet of Allah. (ibn Sa’d, vol.i p 95‑96. The bold emphasis is mine)
If we are perturbed with such naked racism of Allah, then, here is a shocking hadith from Sahih Muslim which declares Allah’s special love for the white Quraysh Arabs.
Book 020, Number 4483:
It has been narrated on the authority of Amir b. Sa'd b. Abu Waqqas who said: I wrote (a letter) to Jabir b. Samura and sent it to him through my servant Nafi', asking him to inform me of something he had heard from the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him). He wrote to me (in reply): I heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say on Friday evening, the day on which al-Aslami was stoned to death (for committing adultery): The Islamic religion will continue until the Hour has been established, or you have been ruled over by twelve Caliphs, all of them being from the Quraish. also heard him say: A small force of the Muslims will capture the white palace, the police of the Persian Emperor or his descendants. I also heard him say: Before the Day of Judgment there will appear (a number of) impostors. You are to guard against them. I also heard him say: When God grants wealth to any one of you, he should first spend it on himself and his family (and then give it in charity to the poor). I heard him (also) say: I will be your forerunner at the Cistern (expecting your arrival)
Disturbed by the above hadith, the translator, ‘Abdul Hamid Siddiqi writes:
The question whether Caliphate is the privilege of the Quraish is one of those debatable issues over which there has been a good deal of difference of opinion amongst the scholars. One view which is held by a section of the scholars is that a Caliph should necessarily be a Quraish. The overwhelming majority of scholars, however, does not subscribe to this view and asserts that a Quraish is to be preferred as a Caliph provided he eminently possesses all other requisite qualifications, which are rightly expected of a Caliph of Islam. The Quarish have no right to be Caliphs merely because of their being connected with the tribe of Quraish. The Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) has himself states this fact…(lengthy quote) (Siddiqi, 2004, p. 3.1217-1218, foot note 2287).
- Please note that the last sentence of the translator contradicts the above hadis and the statement of ibn Sa’d provided.
The ultimate goal of the Islamists is the creation of a Pan Islamic world, which must be ruled by a caliph (the Islamists call it the Khilafat movement) who will be responsible to enforce Islamic laws (Sharia) globally. So, what are the requirements to be a caliph?—you might ask. According to Islamic law, (ref: Reliance of the Traveller, published by Amana Publications, Bettsville, Maryland, 1999, pp.640-642, law number o25.3) the mandatory qualifications of an Islamic caliph are: 1. must be a Muslim 2. must be a male 3. must be from the Quraysh tribe of the Arabs 4. must be a freeman (i.e., not a slave) 5. must be of sound mind. This provision of Islamic law means that the world—the Pan Islamic world must be ruled by an Arab (from the Quraysh stock, probably from Saudi Arabia or Jordan) and no one else. This also means that George Bush, Tony Blair, Jacque Chirac, Vladimir Putin, the Chinese Prime Minister, the Japanese Prime Minister….the most powerful infidel leaders in the world and the not-so-powerful infidel leaders must convert to Islam, declare complete allegiance to the new Arab/Quraysh caliph and become this Arab caliph’s governors. If they do not comply with such Islamic demand then they must be removed by terror, intimidation, and force.
By now, the readers must have clearly comprehended the reason of the Islamist terrorists of what they are doing around the globe. The Islamists are serious in their goal—the Islamic caliphate, and to assist them there is no shortage of Arab charity money to finance their strategy and operations. This is the reason why the Islamists, the Islamist terrorists, the Jihadists and the Islamist apologists have no shortage of fund—the Arab/oil money is aplenty to finance the establishment of a super Arab (Islamic) kingdom. This is the meaning of Arab Imperialism when I say that ‘Islam is Arab/Bedouin imperialism’.
Please stop laughing. The Islamists are dead serious in establishing this dictatorship of Allah (read Arab). The formation and the activities of OIC (Organisation of Islamic Conferences) readily come to mind. Very recently, in Iraq, a parallel Islamic government (Islamic State of Iraq) is already in function. Their principal objective is the same—to enforce to Sharia law (read Arab Bedouin laws) around the globe. Ditto for Somalia, Hamas, Afghanistan, Sudan. The Arab imperialists (read Islamists) want to take charge of our lives—it is plain and simple, now that they have the money (oil) and the wherewithal to implement nuclear power.
To further confirm that Allah has chosen the Arabs as special people to rule this world, we refer to another law of Sharia This law enforces the supremacy of the white Quraysh Arabs to subjugate all people on earth to their rule, by force, if necessary. The Sharia law cited here stipulates that no other men, even when Muslims, could marry any Arab women. In some Arab countries, this is the law and there is severe punishment if a man from another Islamic country (such as a Muslim man from Bangladesh) marries a Saudi Arabian woman. If he commits such a grave crime (marrying an Arab woman) he might be subjected to harsh punishment and immediate deportation.
Let us read this racist law of Allah:
Law m4.2 The following are not suitable matches for one another:
(1) A non-Arab man for an Arab woman (O: because of the hadith that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said: “Allah has chosen the Arabs above others”). (ibid)
This law firmly establishes Allah’s racism, quite akin to the Nazism of Hitler. Islamic law is heavily biased to establish the supremacy of the Arabs—Allah is adamant that they (the Arabs) are the purest, the truest, the best and the most superior of all races, much like the idea of Hitler of the pure Aryan Germans, the most supreme race on earth.
Here is a hadith in which Muhammad claimed that the earth belonged to Allah and him only (long hadith)…(Sahih Muslim, 19.4363)
We learned previously that Allah
is a King—the King of the world and logically, if He has selected the
Arabs to be His only agent then it naturally follows that Allah has
chosen the Arabs (through Muhammad) to exert their suzerainty over the
Allah made the white Quraysh Arabs the best of His creation
I already quoted ibn Sa’d on this. Here is further evidence on Allah’s racism (read Arab racism).
He (Ibn Sa’d said: Abd al–wahhab Ibn ‘Ata al–‘Ijli informed us on the authority of Sai’d Ibn Abi ‘Aribiah, he on the authority of Qatadh: he said: It has been mentioned to us that the Prophet said: When God wants to raise a prophet He choses the best tribe of the people and then He chooses the best man (Ibn Sa’d, vol. I, p. 8).
Sahih Bukhari confirms that Allah has chosen the Quraysh Arabs as His agent to rule the world (Islamic Caliphate).
Authority and ruling remains with the Quraysh; whoever is hostile towards the Quraysh Allah will destroy them…(Sahih Bukhari, 4.56.704).
Volume 4, Book 56, Number 704: Narrated Muhammad bin Jubair bin Mut'im:
That while he was with a delegation from Quraish to Muawiya, the latter heard the news that 'Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al-'As said that there would be a king from the tribe of Qahtan. On that Muawiya became angry, got up and then praised Allah as He deserved, and said, "Now then, I have heard that some men amongst you narrate things which are neither in the Holy Book, nor have been told by Allah's Apostle. Those men are the ignorant amongst you. Beware of such hopes as make the people go astray, for I heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'Authority of ruling will remain with Quraish, and whoever bears hostility to them, Allah will destroy him as long as they abide by the laws of the religion.'"
Allah is a white supremacist; He does not like black faces; He likes white faces
Here are a few verses from the Qur’an which unabashedly declares that black faces are the most despicable to Allah.
Disbelievers’ faces will be black on the judgment day and they will receive God's penalty...3:106
White faces on the judgment day will receive God's mercy...3:107
Allah will reward the doers of good with paradise and much more, their faces will be radiant‑stained; they will never be humiliated. The unbelievers’ faces will be turned dark…10:26‑27
Commenting on the above verses ibn Kathir writes:
There will be no blackness or darkness on their faces. The faces of the non-believers will be stained with dust, blackness and darkness. On the Resurrection Day Allah will remove His veil and then show His face to the dwellers of Paradise. He will make the believers’ faces white but the unbelievers’ faces will be dark.
The sinners will be gathered together with blind (blue) eyes and black faces on the day the trumpet is sounded (the Noble Quran)...20:102
Unbeliever’s faces will be turned black on the judgment day…39:60
The reason of Allah’s great disdain for black faces (black complexion) and His unbound love for the white faces (white complexion) is quite easy to fathom. Muhammad complexion was white. We gather this information from his biography.
We read in Ash‑Shifa:
Al‑Hasan ibn ‘Ali said, “I asked my uncle Hind ibn Abi Hala about the features of the Messenger of Allah since he was wont to describe them. I wanted him to describe them to me so that I could retain them in my mind. He said, ‘The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was imposing and majestic. His face shone like the full moon. He was somewhat taller than medium height and a little shorter than what could be described as tall. His head was large and he had hair that was neither curly nor straight. It was parted, and did not go beyond the lobes of his ears. He was very fair‑skinned with a wide brow, and had thick eyebrows with a narrow space between them. He had a vein there which throbbed when he was angry. He had a long nose with a line of light over it which someone might unthinkingly take to be his nose.” (Ash‑Shifa, p 80. Bold emphasis is mine.)
If readers have doubt on Ash‑Shifa, here is what is written on the back cover of this important Islamic book:
Kitab Ash_Shifa bi tari’f huquq al-Mustafa (Healing by the recognition of the Rights of the Chosen One) of Qadi Iyad (d.544H/1149CE) is perhaps the most frequently used and commented upon handbook in which the prophet’s life, his qualities and his miracles are described in every detail. Generally known by its short title, Ash-Shifa, this work was so highly admired throughout the Muslim world that it soon acquired a sanctity of its own for it is said: “If Ash-Shifa is found in a house, this house will not suffer any harm…when a sick person reads it or it is recited for him, Allah s.w.t will restore his health.”
In this book (Ash‑Shifa) Allah, through sharia, expresses a great disdain for the black people in this manner:
Whoever says Muhammad was black must be killed…(Ash‑Shifa, Tr. Aisha Abdarrahman, 2004)
- Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, the companion of Sahnun said, “Anyone who says that the Prophet was black should be killed. (ibid, p.375)
Allah accepts only Islam as His religion; other religions are invalid
The dictatorial, totalitarian and chauvinist nature of Allah is best expressed in many Qur'anic verses which clearly declare that Islam is the one and the only religion acceptable to Him. Often, we read articles extolling the unbound tolerance of religious freedom in Islam written by Islamist apologists resident in the infidel West. They will invariably quote a handful of Meccan (in fact, only three verses) verses from the Qur’an to demonstrate the tolerance in Islam vis-à-vis other religion. What these Islamist apologists do not tell is the fact these verses have been abrogated by many later, Medina verses.
The three verses often quoted are: 2:256; 5:32, 109:6.
Let us briefly examine these three verses and their abrogation by later verses.
No compulsion in religion; the truth is clear from error...2:256
Ibn Kathir (source) says that before Islam, when an Ansar woman would not bear children who would live, she would vow that if she gave birth to a child who remained alive, she would raise him as a Jew. When Muhammad plundered the Banu An-Nadir, and forced the evacuation of Jews from Medina, some of the children of the Ansar were being raised among them (the Jews), and the Ansar said, `We will not abandon our children. So Allah revealed this verse regarding these children.
Ibn Kathir continues:
(There is no compulsion in religion), meaning, "Do not force anyone to become Muslim, for Islam is plain and clear, and its proofs and evidence are plain and clear. Therefore, there is no need to force anyone to embrace Islam. Rather, whoever Allah directs to Islam, opens his heart for it and enlightens his mind, will embrace Islam with certainty. Whoever Allah blinds his heart and seals his hearing and sight, then he will not benefit from being forced to embrace Islam.''
Sunaan Abu Dawud (hadith number 2.14.2676) further explains this context: when Muhammad expelled B. Nadir Jews he allowed these children to remain with their biological parents and not to follow the exiled Jews; i.e. he permitted the children to revert back to Islam and remain with their natural Muslim parents.
Here is the hadith
Book 14, Number 2676:
Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: When the children of a woman (in pre-Islamic days) did not survive, she took a vow on herself that if her child survives, she would convert it a Jew. When Banu an-Nadir were expelled (from Arabia), there were some children of the Ansar (Helpers) among them. They said: We shall not leave our children. So Allah the Exalted revealed; "Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error."
What Muhammad said was simply this: These born‑Muslim children should not be forced/coerced into Jewish religion. They must revert to Islam, the religion of truth.
Therefore, in essence, verse 2:256 really means quite the opposite of what the Islamist apologists propagate. This verse simply says that there should be no compulsion to convert a Muslim to another religion. The very next verse (2:257), by exhorting extreme hatred for the non‑Muslims, simply confirms this verity.
Here is verse 2:257:
2:257. Allâh is the Walî (Protector or Guardian) of those who believe. He brings them out from darkness into light. But as for those who disbelieve, their Auliyâ (supporters and helpers) are Tâghût [false deities and false leaders, etc.], they bring them out from light into darkness. Those are the dwellers of the Fire, and they will abide therein forever. (Quoted from the Noble Qur’an, Tr. by Hilali and Khan)
Here is verse 5:32 which most Islamist apologist love to quote to demonstrate the peaceful nature of Islam:
Killing one person except for a just cause is like slaying the whole people; saving a life is like saving the whole people...5:32
On the surface, this verse seems benign enough. What the Islamist apologists never tell is that the killing here really refers to the killing of Muslims and not human beings in general. The most authentic tafsir writer, ibn Kathir clearly writes that killing here refers to a Muslim killing another Muslim and not humanity in general (source). Next verse (5:33) advocates cruel punishment to those who dare to criticise Islam and Muhammad.
Here is verse 5:33.
5.33. The recompense of those who wage war against Allâh and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter. (Quoted from the Noble Qur’an, Tr. by Hilali and Khan)
Here is verse 109:6
To you be your way (means disbelief—ibn Kathir), to me is mine (means Islam—ibn Kathir; also see 10:41, 28:55)...109:6
Now, here is a summary of the abrogation of the above verses:
2.256 (No compulsion in religion) has been abrogated by (Fight the non‑Muslims and force them into Islam) 2:190, 2:193‑194, 5:2, 8:39, 9:5, 9:36, 9:123.
5:32 (No killing) has been abrogated by (Kill whoever criticises Muhammad and Islam) 5:33
109.6 (To you is your religion) has been abrogated by (No religion other than Islam) 3:19, 3.85 and many other similar verses.
Here are a few verses where Allah says without any confusion whatsoever that Islam is the only religion acceptable to Him. Whoever adopts any religion other than Islam is in profound error, a labeled Kafir (infidel) and must be killed when the Muslims have upper hands on them, if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay the jizya tax (this applies only to the Jews and the Christians). Let us read those verses.
Only Islam is the perfect guidance…2:120
Ibn Kathir (Link) writes that this verse is a stern warning to the Muslims against imitating the Jews and the Christians.
Allah prescribes that Muslims fight even if some Muslims dislike it; they must go and fight the infidels; it is good for the Muslims…2:216
This verse unabashedly proclaims gratuitous slaughter of non‑Muslims. On the interpretation of this verse, ibn Kathir writes that Allah made it compulsory for all Muslims to fight those who transgress Islam. Fighting (fighting means killing by sword—ibn Kathir) is good because fighting is followed by victory, dominance over the enemy, taking over their lands, money and offspring (source).
Islam is the religion of Allah, if one does not follow Islam Allah will have a swift account of him…3:19
In this verse Allah states that no religion from any person, except Islam, is acceptable to Him. Islam includes obeying all of the Messengers until Muhammad who finalized their commission, thus closing all paths to Allah except through Muhammad. Therefore, after Allah sent Muhammad, whoever meets Allah following a path other than Muhammad's, it will not be accepted of him. Allah will punish him for his rejection, reckon him for his denial, and torment him for defying His Book—ibn Kathir.
Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (abrogates 2:62 and 5:69)...3:85
This day Allah perfected the religion of Islam and accepted Islam as the only religion for mankind...5:3
Many Islamic scholars believe verse 5:3 is the last verse of the Qur’an. Therefore, the injunction of this verse is valid for eternity—Islam is the only religion acceptable to Allah, all other religions are null and void.
Follow God’s straight path (that is, Islam) and no other path…6:153
On the context of this verse ibn Kathir writes that Muhammad drew with his hand a straight line on sand and said that that was his path, the straight line. He then drew two lines to the left and two lines to the right of that line and said that those were other paths. On each path there is a devil who calls to it. (Also see 42:13).
Those who do not follow Islam are deaf, blind, and the worst beasts…8:22
According to ibn Kathir both the unbelievers and the hypocrites are the same; they are deaf and dumb. (Also see 2:171, 7:179).
After the four sacred months (Rajab, Zulqad, ZulHajj, Muharram) have passed slay (fight and kill) the pagans wherever (that is, the earth in general—ibn Kathir) they are found…9:5
As per ibn Kathir, the most celebrated exegete of the Qur’an, even though this verse mentions to kill the pagans, but this verse, in general, is applicable to all the unbelievers on earth. He further elaborates the provisions of this verse in this manner:
Do not wait until you find them, seek and besiege them in their areas and forts, gather intelligence about them in various roads and fairways and force them to Islam. If they do not embrace Islam, then kill them. This verse allowed Muslims to fight the non-Muslims until they embrace Islam. These verses allowed fighting people unless and until, they embrace Islam and implement its rulings and obligations. Allah mentioned the most important aspects of Islam here, including what is less important (also see 2:190, 2:194, 5:2, 8:39, 9:36). If they repent and become believers then forgive them (source). (Note: This verse is called the verse of the sword. This verse abrogates all verses of forgiveness to the pagans. i.e., this verse cancels about 124 verses which espouse mercy, tolerance, and forgiveness to the pagans. The bold emphasis is mine).
Fight those who do not believe in Allah, or in the last Day, or in the halal food. Unbelieving people of the Book (Jews and Christians) pay Jizya tax (this is the compensation for the loss of revenue from the prohibition of the non-Muslims entry in Mecca; imposition of jizya was the compensation to make up for the loss of revenue to the Muslims—ibn Kathir) with submission (humiliation); if they do not pay jizya tax or convert to Islam then kill them (this verse stipulates that the Muslims fight, i.e. kill the people of the Books if they do not pay the jizya tax; Muslims should disgrace, humiliate and belittle the Jews and the Christians—ibn Kathir) (abrogates 2:109)...9:29
Islam is the perfect religion; it will dominate all other religions (see 48:28 and 61:9 for almost similar content)...9:33
Do not worship anything other than Allah; Islam is the only right religion (the purpose of an Islamic state)...12:40
The only religion is the religion of Allah, Islam…16:52
There is only one Allah and all must surrender to Islam...21:108
Allah proclaims Islam (the religion of truth) over all other religion (i.e., Islam is the only religion accepted by Allah; see 9:33, 61:9 for almost similar content) (Islam is superior to all the religions of the people of the earth, Arabs and non-Arabs alike, whether having certain ideologies or being atheists or idolaters—ibn Kathir)....48:28
Allah takes revenge through Muhammad
Having declared that He will accept nothing but Islam, Allah also proclaims a great retribution to those who refuse to accept Islam. Allahs vengeance has no parallel, no upper or lower limits. The all‑merciful Allah is fully obsessed with nothing but scheming of taking revenge—just for one and one reason only—it was for the sake of Muhammad. Ibn Sad writes that Muhammad took revenge for the sake of Allah (Ibn Sad, vol. I, p.430)
Here is a Quranic verse which Muhammad used to justify all his bloodshed, plunder and bedlam.
We have sent them the Truth: but they indeed practise falsehood! [Q 23.90]
Please read the following ahadith to gauge the depth of vengeance Muhammad possessed just to establish Allah’s dictatorship. Allah has ordered Muhammad to fight till the whole earth embraces Islam (long hadith)...(Sahih Bukhari, 1.8.387).
Muhammad used to take revenge for Allah's sake... (Sahih Bukhari, 4.56.760).
Volume 4, Book 56, Number 760: Narrated 'Aisha:
"Whenever Allah's Apostle was given the choice of one of two matters, he would choose the easier of the two, as long as it was not sinful to do so, but if it was sinful to do so, he would not approach it. Allah's Apostle never took revenge (over anybody) for his own sake but (he did) only when Allah's Legal Bindings were outraged in which case he would take revenge for Allah's Sake."
Allah will maim you if you forget the Quran
The following hadith tells us that Allah could be that cruel to maim a believer.
If you recite the Qur’an then forget it then you will meet Allah maimed... (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 8.1469)
Book 8, Number 1469: Narrated Sa'd ibn Ubadah: "The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: No man recites the Qur'an, then forgets it, but will meet Allah on the Day of Judgment in a maimed condition (or empty-handed, or with no excuse)"
Sunnah (Muhammad's words and actions) is from Allah
First, we shall read the following hadith dealing with women’s menstruation and Muhammad’s expert advice regarding sexual intercourse during this period of a woman.
Thabit narrated it from Anas: Among the Jews, when a woman menstruated, they did not dine with her, nor did they live with them in their houses; so the Companions of the Apostle (may peace be upon him) asked The Apostle (may peace be upon him), and Allah, the Exalted revealed:" And they ask you about menstruation; say it is a pollution, so keep away from woman during menstruation" to the end (Qur'an, ii. 222). The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Do everything except intercourse. The Jews heard of that and said: This man does not want to leave anything we do without opposing us in it. Usaid b. Hudair and Abbad b. Bishr came and said: Messenger of Allah, the Jews say such and such thing. We should not have, therefore, any contact with them (as the Jews do). The face of the Messenger of Allah (way peace be upon him) underwent such a change that we thought he was angry with them, but when they went out, they happened to receive a gift of milk which was sent to the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him). He (the Holy Prophet) called for them and gave them drink, whereby they knew that he was not angry with them.
The erudite translator of Sahih Muslim, ‘Abdul Hamid Siddiqi asserts that Sunnah (or hadith) is also derived from Allah. The provision of hadith then becomes obligatory to all Muslims just like the Quran. Abdul Hamid Siddiqi’s note is fairly lengthy. I shall quote only the relevant part.
…This attitude of the holy Prophet clearly shows that the teachings of the Qur’an and the Sunnah are derived from no human agency and are all inspired by God, and therefore transcend all material or worldly considerations….(Siddiqi, 2004, pp. 210–211, foot note 508)
Allah is a male chauvinist dictator
Here is a hadith which says that a weak person (a woman) cannot be a ruler (Sahih Muslim, 20.4491).
It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Dharr who said: I said to the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him): Messenger of Allah, will you not appoint me to a public office? He stroked my shoulder with his hand and said: Abu Dharr, thou art weak and authority is a trust. and on the Day of judgment it is a cause of humiliation and repentance except for one who fulfils its obligations and (properly) discharges the duties attendant thereon.
In a footnote on this hadith the translator of Sahih Muslim confirms that an Islamic Caliph must be a male Arab (Siddiqi, 2004, p. 3.1224, footnote 2297)
Another hadith in Sunaan Abu Dawud reads (this hadith is not available online; I am quoting from the print version):
Sunaan Abu Dawud, Vol. ii, Hadith Number 2135
Qais b. Sa’d said: I went to Hirah and saw them (the people) prostrating themselves before a satrap of their, so I said: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) has most right to have prostration made before him. When I came to the Prophet (may peace be upon him), I said: I went to al–Hirah and saw them prostrating themselves before a satrap of theirs, but you have most right, Apostle of Allah, to have (people) prostrating themselves before you. He said: Tell me, if you were to pass my grave, would you prostrate yourself before it? I said: No. He then said: Do not do so. If I were to command anyone to make prostration before another I would command women to prostrate themselves before their husbands, because of the special right over them given to husbands by Allah.
Professor Ahmad Hasan, the translator of Sunaan Abu Dawud, commenting on this hadith, writes that this shows the superiority of men over women. The wives have been commanded to obey their husbands in respect of lawful things. He also says that this tradition emphasizes the obedience of the wife to her husband (Hasan, 2003, p 2.574, footnotes 1461, 1462).
Allah's misogyny nature has no bounds
As written before, Imam Ghazali was one of the most revered scholars of Islam. The following passages summarise a few of his Islamic ideas on women as culled from Ihya Ulum Ed‑Din, English Tr. Fazl‑ul‑Karim, 1993). Needless to say, what Ghazali writes about women in Islam fully conforms with the Qur’an and Sunnah, and therefore, entirely supported by Allah.
Imam Ghazali on women:
The most appalling narration of Ghazali's declaration of absolute superiority of men over women is written in this fashion:
"(Prophet said - if husband would be covered with pus from head to toe, and wife would lick it, even then wife's gratitude to husband wouldn't be fulfilled".
The readers should note that the above translated passage of Ihya Ulum Al—Din is from the Bengali translation of the famous book of Ghazali.(Reference: Ehiya Ulum Al Deen Vol 2 / 9 page 311, Bangla: Translated by :- M. N. M. Imdadullah MMBA (Hons), MA, Publisher - Bangladesh Taj company Ltd. 8 Parydas Road Dhaka 1100).
Please note that the English version of this grand book of Islam has cleverly discarded similar passages quoted (from the Bengali translation) above. In fact, the English translator writes that he has omitted certain passages which are not relevant today.
Here are a few gems (summarized) from the English translation of Ihya Ulum Al‑Din. Please note that the English version is in four volumes.
- Your sexual intercourse with your wife is an act of charity. If you throw your semen in lawful things (inside a vagina), you will get rewards. (p.1.236)
- Muhammad said: A prison in the corner of a house is better than a childless woman. (p.2.24)
- An ugly woman with children is better than a beautiful woman without children (p.2.24)
If you see a woman in front, she is a devil. After seeing such a woman, hurry to your wife for immediate sex because your wife also becomes a devil if you do not do (immediate sex). (p.2.26)
Devil runs through your vein like the circulation of blood; so do not go to a woman without the presence of her husband. Only Muhammad had been saved from the machinations of devils. (p.2.26)
A wife’s duty is to do household chores and to satisfy her husband’s sexual appetite. (p.2.27)
The best woman is she who is beautiful and whose dower is little. (p.2.31)
Miserliness, pride and cowardice are bad for men but good for women. (p.2.31)
When marrying a girl, look for her beauty, as this will save you from fornication (p.2.31)
If it be known that a woman is barren, do not marry her marry lovely and child‑bearing women. (p.2.32)
A good woman is one who is married early at her age, who gives birth to a child without delay and who demands a small dower. (p.2.32)
Choose a woman for your semen as a vein is like an arrow. (p.2.32)
Women are prisoners in a man’s hand. Men have taken them as trusts from God and God has made their sexual parts lawful for men. (p.2.33)
Umar said: Stay at home with your wife like a boy. When the wife demands things, behave like a man. (p.2.34)
Umar said, “Act opposite to women as there is reward in opposing them.” (p.2.34)
He who becomes slave to women is ruined. If a husband acts according to the wishes of his wife, he becomes her slave and thus ruined; God has made husband the master of his wife. (p.2.34)
It is the right of a man that his wife follows him and not the other way around. (p.2.34)
Husbands are the maintainers and masters of their wives. (p.2.34)
If you disgrace your wife, your servant and your Nabati they will honor you. They (women, servants) are evil and posses little intelligence. (p.2.34)
Women are like crows; only a religious woman is like a crow with white belly among one hundred cows. (p.2.34)
Muhammad said, “Fear unchaste women because she will make you old before you grow old.” (p.2.34)
Muhammad said, “No nation prospers over which a woman rules.” (p.2.35)
Umar said: “If woman dresses well she must stay at home.” Habituate women to stay inside their homes. Women can come out of their houses only during Eid’s. (p.2.36)
If you ejaculate your semen before your wife ejaculates her semen then you are a weak man. (p.2.38)
If your father dislikes your wife then divorce her. If a woman seeks divorce from her husband without any reasons, she will not smell the fragrance of paradise. (p.2.42)
The women who seek divorce are hypocrites. (p.2.42)
A wife should not refuse her husband if he wants to enjoy her body. If the wife of a man dies while he is pleased with her, she will enter paradise. If a man wants sex, his wife must comply with him even when she is on the back of a camel. A woman cannot keep optional fast without her husband’s permission. If she does, God will not accept her fast. (p.2.43)
If she goes out of her house without his permission, the angels curse her until she returns home or till she repents. (p.2.43)
If Muhammad wanted anyone to prostrate before another, he would have ordered a woman to prostrate before her husband. (p.2.43)
When a woman stays at home, she comes closer to God. A woman’s prayer in her courtyard is more meritorious than her prayer in a mosque. (p.2.43)
A woman is like a private part. When she comes out of her house, the devil holds her high. (p.2.43)
A woman has ten private parts. When she gets married her husband covers one private part; when she dies the grave covers other nine private parts. (p.2.43)
A woman, a slave and an unbeliever is not fit to be a moral police. (p.2.186)
The devil lives in markets and bazaars. God created women as games for devil. (p.3.39)
The satisfaction of belly encourages companionship of women. (p.3.69)
Muhammad said, “There will remain no grater danger for the people after my death than women. Fear the world of women.” (p.3.87)
Muhammad said,” A woman is the string of the devil.” (p.3.87)
A woman is the best coveted of things to a man. He takes pleasures in penetrating his genital organ into female vaginal canal. Thus, vagina is the most coveted thing in a woman. (p.3.162)
The world is like an unchaste woman. The world at first treats well and then leads to destruction. The world dresses itself like an unchaste woman and calls the people towards her. (p.3.164)
Whenever she (a woman) takes the people to her house, she ruins them. (p.3.164)
The world is like an ugly old woman. The outer form is one form and its secret form is another. Its outer form is nice but its inner form is ugly and poisonous. (p.3.164)
Muhammad also said, “There will be markets in Paradise in which there will be no buy or sale, but there will be men and women. If any man will wish to have sexual intercourse with a woman, he will do it at once. The Hurs will sing in Paradise on divine purity and praise—we are most beautiful Hurs and we are for the honored husbands.” (p.4.430)
According to Muhammad, the Hurs of Paradise will be pure women—free of menstruation, urine, stool, cough and children. (p.4.430)
- Here are more (selected) Islamic comments on women:
- Hedaya (Tr. Charles Hamilton, 1994)
- A woman is a servant and the husband is the person served …(p.47)
"Case of marriage on a condition of service from the husband.—IF ……it is not lawful that a woman should be in a situation to exact the service of her husband who is a freeman, as this would amount to a reversal of their appointed stations, for one of the requisites of marriage is, that the woman be as a servant, and the man as the person served; but if the service of the husband to the wife were to constitute her dower, it would follow that the husband is the servant and the wife as the served: and this being a violation of the requisites of marriage, is therefore illegal; but it is otherwise with the service stipulated to be performed by another free person, with that person’s consent, as this offers no violence to the requisites of the contract; and so also in the case of service of a slave, because the service performed by a slave to his wife is, in fact, performed to his master, by whose consent it is that he undertakes it; and the same with the case of tending flocks, because this is a service of a permanent nature, and admitted to be performed for wives, and therefore, does not violate the requisites of marriage; for the service of the husband to his wife, as a dower, is prohibited only as it may be degrading to the former; but the tending of flocks is not a degrading office.”
Full dower is the payment for the delivery of woman’s person. Booza meaning Genitalia arvum Mulieris--- (p.44)
"The wife entitled to her whole dower upon the consummation of the marriage or the death of the husband.—IF a person specify a dower of ten or more Dirms, and should afterwards consummate his marriage, or be removed by death, his wife, in either case, has a claim to the whole of the dower specified, because, by consummation, the delivery of the return for the dower, namely the Booza, or woman’s person,* is established, and therein is confirmed the right to the consideration, namely, the dower; and, on the other hand, by the decease of the husband the marriage is rendered complete by its completion, and consequently is so with respect to all its effects. (* Literally, Genitale arvum Mulieris)"
You can enjoy a wife by force… (p.141)
"But not if she be refractory.—IF a wife be disobedient or refractory and go abroad without her husband’s consent, she is not entitled to any support from him, until she return and make submission, because the rejection of the matrimonial restraint in this instance originates with her; but when she returns home, she is then subject to it, for which reason she again becomes entitled to her support as before. It is otherwise where a woman, residing in the house of her husband, refuses to admit him to the conjugal embrace, as she is entitled to maintenance, notwithstanding her opposition, because being then in his power, he may, if he please, enjoy her by force.(*Dirms have varied in their value at different times, from twenty to twenty-five passing current for a Deenar. The sum here mentioned is from about eighteen to twenty-two pounds sterling)"
Maintenance of a wife is the custody for the purpose of enjoyment… (p.141)
- Sunaan Abu Dawud (Tr. Prof. Ahmad Hasan, 2001)

Perhaps, the final words of Allah's misogynist nature have been summed up in the following hadith, narrated by none other than Aisha, Muhammad’s dearest child‑bride.
'Aisha said, "I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women.”…Sahih Bukhari 7.72.715
Volume 7, Book 72, Number 715:
Rifa'a divorced his wife whereupon 'Abdur Rahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. 'Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah's Apostle came, 'Aisha said, "I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!" When 'Abdur Rahman heard that his wife had gone to the Prophet, he came with his two sons from another wife. She said, "By Allah! I have done no wrong to him but he is impotent and is as useless to me as this," holding and showing the fringe of her garment, 'Abdur-Rahman said, "By Allah, O Allah's Apostle! She has told a lie! I am very strong and can satisfy her but she is disobedient and wants to go back to Rifa'a." Allah's Apostle said, to her, "If that is your intention, then know that it is unlawful for you to remarry Rifa'a unless Abdur-Rahman has had sexual intercourse with you." Then the Prophet saw two boys with 'Abdur-Rahman and asked (him), "Are these your sons?" On that 'Abdur Rahman said, "Yes." The Prophet said, "You claim what you claim (i.e.. that he is impotent)? But by Allah, these boys resemble him as a crow resembles a crow,"
