Islamic Peeping Toms

Apostle of God  had  great taste  in women and only selected the ones with good looks and great figure (later in life, when he had power and choice) . Selection and acquiring of  Zaynab, his first cousin and his adopted son Zaid's wife emphasizes this  point. Zainab had a beautiful face, but only after seeing her in  the nude and liking what he saw,  he chose to acquire her.

This is what TABARI says in "History of Tabari" Vol 8:

"One day Muhammad went out looking for Zayd. Now there was a covering of hair cloth over the doorway, but the wind had lifted the covering so that the doorway was uncovered. Zaynab was in her chamber, undressed, and admiration for her entered the heart of the Prophet. After that Allah made her unattractive to Zayd.'"

Almighty ordered their union  thru Q 33.37

  His 24 /7 sex life was also known in Madina..

Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 5, Number 268:

 "The Prophet used to visit all his wives in a round, during the day and night and they were eleven in number." I asked Anas, "Had the Prophet the strength for it?" Anas replied, "We used to say that the Prophet was given the strength of thirty (men)."

He also enjoyed taking baths with his young and beautiful wives.

Bukhari, Book 003, Number 0629:

'A'isha reported: I and the Messenger (may peace be upon him) took a bath from the same vessel and our hands alternated into it in the state that we had had sexual intercourse.

Bukhari, Book 003, Number 0630:

'A'isha reported: I and the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) took a bath from one vessel which was placed between me and him and he would get ahead of me, so that I would say: Spare (some water for) me, spare (some water for) me; and she said that they had had sexual intercourse.

Bukhari, Book 003, Number 0631:

Ibn Abbas said: Maimuna (the wife of the Holy Prophet) reported to me that she and the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) took a bath from one vessel.

All the above factors   attracted many peeping Toms to his huts. Many enjoyed the views and action  without ever being caught but some did get  caught and got bloody eyes.

Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 83, Number 38a:

Narrated Anas:

A man peeped into one of the dwelling places of the Prophet. The Prophet got up and aimed a sharp-edged arrow head (or wooden stick) at him to poke him stealthily.

Muslim, Book 025, Number 5369:

Anas b. Malik reported that a person peeped in some of the holes (in the doors) of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him)..

Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 83, Number 38:

Narrated Sahl bin Sa'd As-Sa'idi:

A man peeped through a hole in the door of Allah's Apostle's house, and at that time, Allah's Apostle had a Midri (an iron comb or bar) with which he was rubbing his head. So when Allah's Apostle saw him, he said (to him), "If I had been sure that you were looking at me (through the door), I would have poked your eye with this (sharp iron bar)  

One such peeping tom, Abu  Ayyub Ansari,  spent the night peeping into the  tent where the 57 year old apostle was spending the night with gorgeous 17 year old Safia, acquired earlier  in the day in the  Khaibar raid. However Ayyub was smart and talked his way out when he was caught with his pants  down.  Read on:

According to a muslim wesbite (minus the sugar coating)

"Safiyah was captured in the Khaibar raid and was claimed by the apostle as his share of booty.. She was then seventeen. She was groomed and made-up for the Prophet by Umm Sulaim, the mother of Anas ibn Malik. They spent the night there. In the  early dawn, the Prophet suspected some movement near the tent (during the night he was too involved to notice ) . He went out to enquire  (lucky for Ayyub that apostle was on the road and  did not have a sharp edged arrow handy) and saw Abu Ayyub (apparently Abu Ayyub did not get a captured woman in that raid). He asked him what he was doing near his tent.He replied: "I was afraid for you with this young lady. You had killed her father, her husband and many of her relatives, and till recently she was an unbeliever. I was really afraid for you on her account and was guarding you". The Prophet (either bought the lie or felt pity for the horny man who had put his life on line in the raid  yet was without a captured woman and spent the night drooling)  prayed for Abu Ayyub al-Ansari (Ibn Hisham, p. 766)

 Apostle was so sick and tired of the horny men trying to violate his privacy that  finally he made the law that eyes  of peeping Toms can be put out.

Muslim,Book 025, Number 5370:

Abu Huraira reported having heard Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) say: He who peeped into the house of people without their consent, it is permissible for them to put out.

Well prophets huts had the best looking women and most action in Madina. You cannot blame the peeping Toms.  


Allah had given the apostle  libido of 30 men (as mentioned in one hadith above).He had so much energy that  he did  not leave them alone even  during their periods..  

Bukhari,Volume 1, Book 6, Number 299:

Narrated 'Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Aswad:

(on 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:

Narrated Maimuna:

When ever Allah's Apostle wanted to fondle any of his wives during the periods (menses), he used to ask her to wear an Izar. 

Although  Apostle had sex with any of his wives whenever he wanted, but as a general rule  he assigned one day for each  wife. Slave girls did not get a separate  day but were squeezed in whenever possible  (Once, he found his wife  Habsa gone and her bed empty so he  grabbed  slave girl Maria and pulled her  into the empty bed for a quickie, but Habsa walked in during action and went berserk. Almighty had to intervene with   Q66.1-( Bukhari 3/43/6348) .

Apostle, in order to spread the cheer, used to invite all his wives to come and watch when he was in bed with one of them. Once while  making love to   Ayesha he wanted to grab Zainab who was standing next to the bed and watching. This did not go very well with Ayesha who was the   youngest and  of  very possessive nature. A shouting match started between Ayesha and Zainab. The altercation continued till early morning and apostle had to leave for fajr prayer without finishing the job.

Bukhari, Book 008, Number 3450:

Anas (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) had nine wives. So when he divided (his stay) with them, the turn of the first wife did not come but on the ninth (day). They (all the wives) used to gather every night in the house of one where he had to come (and stay that night). It was (the night when he had to stay) in the house of 'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her), when Zainab came there. He (the Holy Prophet) stretched his hand towards her (Zainab), whereupon she ('A'isha) said: It is Zainab. Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) withdrew his hand. There was an altercation between the two until their voices became loud (and it was at that time) when Iqama was pronounced for prayer. There happened to come Abu Bakr and he heard their voices and said: Messenger of Allah, (kindly) come for prayer, and throw dust in their mouths. So the Prophet (may peace be upon him) went out.


Apostle had practical solutions for all problems. In one case  a household freed slave (Salim) of Abu Hudaifa, an  aging arab, became adult . Abu Hudaufa had a young and pretty wife. Naturally he was getting  worried that Salim, a young and battle hardened stud (he had already participated in Badr war), could  scew his wife in his absence.He started harassing his wife about this matter. His wife told of this problem to the apostle. The apostle with all his wisdom solved the problem which made every one happy. He recommended that Salim suckle the breasts of  Hudaifa's  wife which will make  her  unlawful for him. Hudaifa agreed to apostles solution and made Salim suckle his wives breasts. This made every one happy.. Old man Hudaifa was happy that his wife was now unlawful for Salim and he could go on business trips  leaving them alone. Hudaifa's wife was happy that her husband was off her back. Salim was more than happy to oblige and suckle Hudiafa's  wives  breasts.. Apostle was a genius.

Bukhari, Book 008, Number 3425:

'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Salim, the freed slave of Abu Hadhaifa, lived with him and his family in their house. Hudaifas's wife came to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) and said: Salim has attained (purbety) as men attain  and he understands what they understand, and he enters our house freely, I, however, perceive that Hudaifa is getting  suspicious of Salim and me.Wereupon Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) said to her: Suckle him and you would become unlawful for him, and (the rankling) which Abu Hudhaifa feels in his heart will disappear. She returned and said: So I suckled him, and what (was there) in the heart of Abu Hudhaifa disappeared.


Apostle was way ahead of his time. What he knew then science does not know even now. For instance science does not know that baby resembles the partner who discharges first and that female discharge is thin and yellow..  

Bukhari, Book 003, Number 0608:

Anas b. Malik reported that Umm Sulaim narrated it that she asked the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) about a woman who sees in a dream what a man sees (sexual dream). The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon bi m) said: In case a woman sees that, she must take a bath. Umm Sulaim said: I was bashful on account of that and said: Does it happen? Upon this the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Yes (it does happen), otherwise how can (a child) resemble her? Man's discharge (i. e. sperm) is thick and white and the discharge of woman is thin and yellow..  



Question and answer on a muslim website (islamonline):

Q: Can a slave girl be used for prostitution .

A: Sex with slave girls and captured women is halal  according to ayas 4.3, 4.24, 23.6, 33.52, and 70.30 and many hadiths . However using  them as prostitutes is only allowed if she agrees to it. But if she desires  chastity (and likes to restrict sex only with you), you cannot force her .  Force is allowed only under compulsion (such as hunger) as the following aya indicates (same way as Allah had allowed muslims to use prostitutes with temporary nikah under compulsion):  

 Qur'an 24:34 "Force not your slave-girls to whoredom (prostitution) if they desire chastity, that you may seek enjoyment of this life. [And here's the freedom-to-pimp card:] But if anyone forces them, then after such compulsion, Allah is oft-forgiving."



Islamic way to make a witness talk is to first  soften him up by giving him/her a violent beating like you soften  stool by giving stool softener. After that everything comes out easily. Following is an example  in the case  when Ayesha  got lost  on the way back from Mustaleeq raid and was accused of  of having sex with  a young jihadi  who had found her up and had  brought her back (while apostle was honey mooning with  the newly acquired captured beauty Juavaria). Ayesha's slave girl Buraya  was called as  witness. It is said that the beating was so violent that poor  Buyraya defecated in her abhaya before she talked. A hadith says: 

Ishaq:496 "Ask the slave girl; she will tell you the truth.' So the Apostle called Burayra to ask her. Ali got up and gave her a violent beating first, saying, 'Tell the Apostle the truth.'" Then she told the truth.


A man fornicated with one of apostle's slave girls (who had the   honour of sleeping with Allah's  apostle). This was a violation of priveledged private parts, a serious offense punished by cutting off the offending penis by Jibraeel)  (that is the reason the apostle prohibited the marriage of his widows and slave girls after his death, as he did not want the  grooms  to lose their manhood, disabling them to produce and  to  contribute to the growth of umma).

Muslim, Book 037, Number 6676:

Anas reported that a person was charged with fornication with the slavegirl of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him). Thereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said to 'Ali: Go and strike his neck. 'Ali came to him and he found him in a well making his body cool. 'Ali said to him: Come out, and as he took hold of his hand and brought him out, he found that his sexual organ had been cut. Hadrat 'Ali refrained from striking his neck. He came to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) and said: Allah's Messenger, he does not  even have  the sexual organ with him (Ali did not know that Jibraeel had  already taken care of him).
