Following are some of the many great virtues of apostle of God.
was very humble. He was the caliph of all Muslims yet he would
randomly visit a Muslim's wife for head scratch/ lice check, meals, or
Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 87, Number
Anas bin Malik:
Apostle used to visit Um Haram bint Milhan she was the wife of
'Ubada bin As-Samit. One day the Prophet visited her and she provided
him with food and started looking for lice in his head. Then Allah's
Apostle slept and afterwards woke up smiling.
OF HIS WORD
the 50 year old apostle married the 6 year old beauty Ayesha,
her father Abu Bakr told him not to have sex with her for 3 years.
He gave his word and waited for three years for consummation.
Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64
that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he
consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then
she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).
Allah's Apostle had excellent control on himself. He could fondle any of his
wives then walk away...
Bukhari,Volume 1, Book 6, Number 299:
'Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Aswad:
the authority of his father) 'Aisha said: "Whenever Allah's
Apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses),
he used to order her to put on an Izar and start fondling her."
'Aisha added, "None of you could control his sexual desires
as the Prophet could."
Bukhar, iVolume 1,
Book 6, Number 300:
ever Allah's Apostle wanted to fondle any of his wives during
the periods (menses), he used to ask her to wear an Izar.
of God shared his
slave girls and captured women with his friends and relatives.
A fifth of the booty was, as usual, reserved for the Prophet,
and the rest divided. From the fifth Mahomet MADE CERTAIN PRESENTS
TO HIS FRIENDS OF FEMALE CAPTIVES AND CHILDREN. (Ref Waqqidi, Tabari, and Ishaq)
Mahomet had part of his share of enslaved women and children from
Quraiza sent and sold to the Bedouin tribes of
Najd , in exchange for horses and arms.
History of Tabari, vol 8, pge 29-30
From his share of captive women, prophet gave his son-in-law,
Ali a slave girl, Raytah bt Hilal to enjoy her at his will. He
also presented Uthman b. Affan, his son-in-law, another slave
girl Zainab b. Hayan, and bestowed another girl (name unknown)
to his father in-law Omar Ibn Khattab.
Omar gave that girl to his son Abdullah. Most of Prophet's other elite
companions received slave girls as gifts..
Apostle of God took a gorgeous young
girl from a jihadi (who was given as booty to him by Abu Bakr
after a raid on tribe Fazara), and instead of disrobing and enjoying this irresistible
girl (described as prettiest in
Arabia ) himself, he used
her as ransom for imprisoned jihadis.
Ibn Muhairiz: Muslim Book 019, Number 4345:
Among captured women was a woman from Banu Fazara. She was
wearing a leather coat. With her was her daughter who was one
of the PRETTIEST GIRLS IN ARABIA. Abu Bakr bestowed
that girl upon me as a prize. So we arrived in
I met prophet in the
Medina street who said: Give me
that girl, O Salama. I said: Messenger of Allah, she has fascinated
me. I had not yet disrobed her. When on the next day. the Messenger
of Allah (may peace be upon him) again met me in the street, he
said: O Salama, give me that girl, may God bless your father.
I said: She is for you. Messenger of Allah! By Allah. I have not
yet disrobed her. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him)SENT
HER TO THE PEOPLE OF MECCA AND SURRENDERED HER AS RANSOM FOR A
NUMBER OF MUSLIMS WHO HAD BEEN KEPT AS PRISONERS AT MECCA.
TO MAN'S BEST FRIEND
Allah's apostle had a soft corner for man's best friend.
He even allowed dogs to come
in mosques and urinate.
Volume 1, Book 4, Number 174:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Hamza bin 'Abdullah narrated: My father said. "During the
lifetime of Allah's Apostle, the dogs used to urinate, and pass
through the mosques (come and go), nevertheless they never used
to sprinkle water on it (urine of the dog.)"
Muslims used to flog their wives (allowed by Quran 4.34)
when they were disobedient but afterwards they had
habit of having sex with them. It is very painful for women to lie on their backs
for sex after a good beating as the lashes cause open wounds .
Apostle was a very compassionate man and he therefore prohibited
have sex with wives on the day of their flogging.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 132:
Narrated 'Abdullah bin Zam'a:
The Prophet said, "None of you should flog his wife as he
flogs a slave and then have sexual intercourse with her in the
last part of the day."
had given the Apostle excellent medical knowledge.
Volume 7, Book 71, Number 592:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "There is healing in black
cumin for all diseases except death."
Volume 7, Book 71, Number 673:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "If a fly falls in the vessel of any
of you, let him dip all of it (into the vessel) and then throw
it away, for in one of its wings there is a disease and in the
other there is healing (antidote for it) i e. the treatment for
Volume 7, Book 71, Number 596:
Narrated Um Qais bint Mihsan:
I heard the Prophet saying, "Treat with the Indian incense,
for it has healing for seven diseases; it is to be sniffed by
one having throat trouble, and to be put into one side of the
mouth of one suffering from pleurisy.
of God had a vast knowledge about every thing.
Never hold your penis with your right hand when urinating.
Volume 1, Book 4, Number 156:
Narrated Abu Qatada:
The Prophet said, "Whenever anyone of you urinates he should
not hold his penis or clean his private parts with his right hand.
Always say Insha Allah (God willing) before having sex.
Volume 4, Book 52, Number 74i:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "Once Solomon, son of David said, '(By
Allah) Tonight I will have sexual intercourse with one hundred
(or ninety-nine) women each of whom will give birth to a knight
who will fight in Allah's Cause.' On that a (i.e. if Allah wills)
but he did not say, 'Allah willing.' Therefore only one of those
women conceived and gave birth to a half-man. By Him in Whose
Hands Muhammad's life is, if he had said, "Allah willing',
(he would have begotten sons) all of whom would have been knights
striving in Allah's Cause."
The better looking partner should discharge first when copulating.
Book k. 55 Number 546
Allah's Apostle said, "Gabriel has just now told me
the answer. If a man has sexual intercourse with his wife and
gets discharge first, the child will resemble him, and if the
woman gets discharge first, the child will resemble her."
When circumcising a woman never cut severely.
Abu Dawud Book 41, Number 5251:
Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah:
A woman used to perform circumcision in
Medina . The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him)
said to her: Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman
and more desirable for a husband.
WORKING AND BUSY
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:
"The Prophet used to go round
(have sexual relations with) all his wives in one night, and he
had nine wives".
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.. .
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).
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).
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.
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
sleep alone, when the fellow jihadi in the next bed is sleeping
with a young beauty . Some jihadis used to go berserk with frustration
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.
Volume 7, Book 62, Number 130
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
, 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.
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:
Abu Said Al-Khudri:
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.
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
But Abu's pretty daughter
6 year old
was also his foster niece by the same token. But Mo really wanted
Book 62, Number 18:
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
is lawful for me to marry."
