  • Understanding Islam Part 3 Mohammeds Prophethood

    1. 2. According to Islam: Mohammed is the last and greatest of the Prophets . According to Islam Jesus is just a prophet . So according to Islam: Mohammed Is greater than Jesus Islam makes the point that they believe in Jesus, but not as the son of God, only has one of 25 prophets named in the Qur'an. So, as we look at the life of Mohammed it is fair to compare him to Jesus. Who was Mohammed ? What was he like ? What did he do ?
    2. 3. <ul><li>Sahih Bukhari V6, B60, N236: Ishaq:326 </li></ul><ul><li>Allah said, </li></ul><ul><ul><li>‘ No Prophet before Muhammad </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>took booty [ plunder, loot ] from his enemy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>nor prisoners for ransom .’ </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Muhammad said, </li></ul><ul><li>‘ I was made victorious with terror . </li></ul><ul><li>The earth was made a place for me to clean. </li></ul><ul><li>I was given the most powerful words . </li></ul><ul><li>Booty was made lawful for me. </li></ul><ul><li>I was given the power to intercede . </li></ul><ul><li>These five privileges were awarded to no prophet before me .’… </li></ul>Mohammed the last and greatest of the prophets. <ul><li>Qur’an Surah 081. 019 “Verily this is the </li></ul><ul><li>Word (the Qur’an brought by) </li></ul><ul><li>a most honorable Messenger </li></ul><ul><li>Imbued with power, </li></ul><ul><li>the Lord of the Throne, </li></ul><ul><li>Mighty, </li></ul><ul><li>One to be obeyed.” </li></ul>
    3. 4. Bukhari: V4 B52 N220 “ Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings , and I have been made victorious with terror . While I was sleeping, the keys to the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand .’” Mohammed the last and greatest of the prophets. Qur’an 33: 56 - 57 Yusuf Ali Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet : O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him , and salute him with all respect . Those who annoy Allah and His Messenger - Allah has cursed them in this World and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating Punishment .
    4. 5. Sahih Bukhari V6, B60, N236: … Allah’s Apostle … said, &quot; I will be the chief of all the people on the Day of Resurrection. … Allah will gather all the human beings … on one plain … to make them all-hear his voice and … to see all of them. The sun will come so close to the people that they will suffer such distress and trouble as they will not be able to bear or stand. … Some people will say to some others, 'Go to Adam .' So they will go to Adam and say to him. ‘… intercede for us with your Lord . Don't you see in what state we are? …’ Mohammed the chief of all the people.
    5. 6. Sahih Bukhari V6, B60, N236: Adam will say , 'Today my Lord has become angry as He has never become before, nor will ever become thereafter. He forbade me (to eat of the fruit of) the tree, but I disobeyed Him . Myself ! Myself ! Myself ! ( has more need for intercession ). Go to someone else; go to Noah …. He [ Noah ] will say .' … Myself ! Myself ! Myself ! Go to someone else; go to Abraham .' He [ Abraham ] will say to them, … Myself ! Myself ! Myself ! Go to someone else; go to Moses .' … Moses will say , … Myself ! Myself ! Myself ! Go to someone else; go to Jesus …. Jesus will say . … ' Myself ! Myself ! Myself ! Go to someone else; go to Muhammad .' Mohammed greater than Adam, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus.
    6. 7.   Qur’an Surah 24: v51 “ The only response of the ( true ) Believers when summoned to Allah and His Messenger in order to judge between them, is no other than this: they say, ‘ We hear and we obey .’ Such are successful. Those who obey Allah and His Messenger , fear Allah and do right, such are the victorious. Whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger fears Allah and keeps his duty.” Mohammed is the only one who ever spoke for Allah. All other revelations from God were claimed to be either lost or corrupted. Whatever he said, Allah said. Bukhari:V9 B89 N251 “ Allah’s Apostle said, ‘ Whoever obeys me , obeys Allah , and whoever disobeys me , Disobeys Allah , and whoever obeys the ruler I appoint , obeys me , and whoever disobeys him , disobeys me .’”

    8. 10. Ishaq:90 “ Jewish rabbis , Christian monks , and Arab soothsayer s had spoken about the Apostle of Allah before his mission when his time drew near. The rabbis and monks found his description in their scriptures . The Arab occultists had been visited by satans from the jinn with reports which they had secretly overheard before they were prevented from hearing by being pelted with stars.” It has always been a contested point, just where Mohammed and his description appears in the Jewish and Christian scriptures.
    9. 11. Tabari VI:15 “After the death of his uncle al-Muttalib, Abdul Muttalib [Mohammed’s Grandfather] took over the privilege of watering and feeding the pilgrims which the sons of Abd Manaf had held before him . He was honored and was a man of great importance, for not one was his equal.” Ishaq:62 “ Sleeping on the graves of Hagar and Ishmael he was ordered in a vision to dig Zamzam . ‘Allahu Akbar,’ he shouted. ‘This is the well of our father Ishmael.’” Tabari VI:15 “He brought out what was buried there, namely, two golden gazelles, swords and coats of mail. He made the swords into a door for the Ka’aba.” Ishaq:66/Tabari VI:2 “It is alleged, and Allah only knows the truth, that Abdul Muttalib [Mohammed’s Grandfather] encountered opposition when he was digging Zamzam. He vowed that if given ten sons, to make his labor less arduous and to protect him, he would sacrifice one of them to Allah at the Ka’aba .” Ishaq:67 “When Abdul Muttalib [Mohammed’s Grandfather] had ten sons [the youngest was to be Mohammed’s Father] grown to maturity and he knew that they would protect him, he told them of his vow, and called on them to keep faith with Allah in this matter. They expressed their obedience, and asked what they should do. He replied, ‘Let every one of you take an arrow, write his name on it, and bring it to me.’ They did this, and he went into the presence of Hubal in the interior of the Ka’aba . Hubal was the greatest of the idols of Quraysh in Mecca.”
    10. 12. Tabari VI:2 “By Allah! You shall never sacrifice him but you must get an excuse for not doing so.” “ There is a sorceress who has a familiar spirit; ask her, and you will know what to do. If she commands you to sacrifice him, you will sacrifice him, and if she commands you to do something which offers relief to you and to him, you can accept it.” “ So they went to Medina where they discovered that the sorceress had moved to Khaybar. They rode until they reached her. She said, ‘Retire from me until my familiar spirit visits me and I can ask him . Abdul Muttalib [Mohammed’s Grandfather] stood and prayed to Allah.” ...“On the following day they went back. She said, ‘Yes! News has come to me. How much is the blood-money among you?’ They replied, ‘Ten camels.’ She said, ‘ Bring forward the young man and ten camels, and cast arrows. If they fall against the boy, add camels until your Lord is satisfied. ’” Tabari VI:5 “They returned to Mecca when they had all agreed on the matter, Abdul Muttalib stood and prayed to Allah inside the Ka’aba they added ten camels, making twenty. With Muttalib standing and praying to Allah they went on this way ten times. Each time the arrows fell against Abdallah. [Mohammed’s Father] ”… So Muttalib took Abdallah by the hand. He grabbed a large knife. …, to sacrifice Abdullah .” … [Abdul Mattalib opted for the custodian to cast the arrows one more time … Finally the arrows fell against the camels .] “ Your Lord is satisfied at last. The camels were slaughtered and left there. No man or wild beast was turned back from eating them.”

    12. 15. Sahih Muslim B:001, N:0311: Anas b. Malik reported that Gabriel came to the Messenger of Allah while he was playing with his playmates. He took hold of him and lay him prostrate on the ground and tore open his breast and took out the heart from it and then extracted a blood-clot out of it and said: That was the part of Satan in thee . And then he washed it with the water of Zamzam in a golden basin and then it was joined together and restored to it place. The boys came running to his mother, i. e. his nurse, and said: Verily Muhammad has been murdered. They all rushed toward him (and found him all right) His color was changed, Anas said. I myself saw the marks of needle on his breast.
    13. 16. Years later it happened again … Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 345: Narrated Abu Dhar: Allah's Apostle said, &quot; While I was at Mecca the roof of my house was opened and Gabriel descended , opened my chest , and washed it with Zam-zam water . Then he brought a golden tray full of wisdom and faith and having poured its contents into my chest , he closed it.

    15. 19. Ishaq:83 “ Khadija was the mother of all of the Apostle’s children except Ibrahim , namely al-Qasim, al-Tayyib, and al-Tahir. They all died in paganism.” Ishaq:82 “ Khadija was a wealthy and respected merchant . She was determined and intelligent, possessing many properties. She was the best born woman of the Quraysh, and she was the richest, too.” “ When he arrived in Mecca, he brought Khadija her property, which she sold for twice the price .… She sent for the Messenger and, it is reported, said to him, ‘Cousin, your kinship to me, your standing among your people…make you a desirable match.’ She offered herself to him in marriage .” Tabari VI:49 “Khadija sent a message to the Muhammad inviting him to take her…She called her father to her house, plied him with wine until he was drunk , slaughtered a cow , anointed him with perfume , and clothed him in a striped robe ; then she sent for Muhammad and his uncles. When they came in, her father married him to her. When he recovered from his intoxication , he said, ‘What is this meat, this perfume, and this garment?’ She replied, ‘You have married me to Muhammad bin Abdallah.’ ‘I have not done so,’ he said. ‘Would I do this when the greatest men of Mecca have asked for you and I have not agreed?’” Tabari VI:48 “ She used to employ men to engage in trade with her property and gave them a share of the profit , for the Quraysh were merchants. When she heard of Muhammad’s truthfulness and nobility of character, she sent for him and proposed that he should go to Syria and engage in the trade with her property. She would give him more than she gave other men who traded for her….”
    16. 20. Tabari VI:59 “ Men of the Quraysh said, ‘ Make the first man who comes in at the door of this mosque the arbiter of our difference so that he may judge on the matter.’ The first man was Muhammad , and when they saw him they said, ‘This is the trustworthy one with whom we are satisfied. This is Muhammad.’ He came up to them and they told him about the matter and he said, ‘Bring me a cloak.’ They brought him one, and he took the Black Stone and placed it on it with his own hands . Then he said, ‘Let each clan take one side of the cloak, and then lift it up all together.’ They did so, and when they had brought it to its place he put it in position with his own hands .”

    18. 23. Bukhari:V1B1N3 Narrated 'Aisha: (the mother of the faithful believers) The commencement of the Divine Inspiration to Allah's Apostle was in the form of good dreams which came true like bright day light, and then the love of seclusion was bestowed upon him. He used to go in seclusion in the cave of Hira where he used to worship (Allah alone) continuously for many days before his desire to see his family. He used to take with him the journey food for the stay and then come back to (his wife) Khadija to take his food like-wise again till suddenly the Truth descended upon him while he was in the cave of Hira. The angel came to him and asked him to read. The Prophet replied, &quot; I do not know how to read .
    19. 24. Bukhari:V1B1N3 … &quot; The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it any more . He then released me and again asked me to read and I replied, ' I do not know how to read .' Thereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it any more. He then released me and again asked me to read but again I replied, ' I do not know how to read (or what shall I read)?' Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me , and then released me and said, ' Read in the name of your Lord , who has created (all that exists) has created man from a clot. Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous.&quot; Read!
    20. 25. Bukhari:V6B60N478 Then Allah's Apostle returned with that experience; and the muscles between his neck and shoulders were trembling till he came upon Khadija (his wife) and said, &quot; Cover me! &quot; They covered him, and when the state of fear was over, he said to Khadija, &quot;O Khadija! What is wrong with me? I was afraid that something bad might happen to me .&quot; Then he told her the story. Khadija said, &quot;Nay! But receive the good tidings! By Allah, Allah will never disgrace you, …
    21. 27. Ishaq:106 “ So I climbed to the mountain to kill myself when I heard a voice saying, ‘Muhammad, you are Allah’s Apostle .’ I raised my head to see who was speaking and lo, I saw Gabriel in the form of a man with feet astride the horizon. Ishaq:106 “ I stood gazing at him and that distracted me from committing suicide . I couldn’t move . Khadija sent her messengers in search of me and they gained the high ground above Mecca so I came to her and sat by her thigh. She said, ‘O Abu’l-Qasim, where have you been?’ I said, ‘Woe is me. I am possessed .’ She said, ‘I take refuge in Allah from that Abu’l-Qasim. Allah would not treat you that way. This cannot be, my dear. Perhaps you did see something,’” Ishaq:106 None of Allah’s creatures was more hateful to me than an ecstatic poet or a man possessed. I thought, ‘ Woe is me, I’m a possessed poet .’ … “ I will go to the top of the mountain and throw myself down that I may kill myself and be at rest .”

    23. 31. Ishaq:130 “ When the Quraysh became distressed by the trouble caused by the Apostle they called him a liar , insulted him , and accused him of being a poet , a sorcerer , a diviner , and of being possessed . However, the Apostle continued to proclaim what Allah had ordered him to proclaim. He excited their dislike by condemning their religion , forsaking their idols , and leaving them to their unbelief .” … “ Sometimes when Muhammad was performing the prayer, Abu Lahab would place a goat’s stomach on him . Sometimes when food was being cooked in the courtyard, he and his wife would throw filth at the cooking pot . The Prophet would say: ‘What kind of neighborliness is it?’ Lahab’s wife had made it a practice to cast thorns at his door at night so that when he came out, they would stick in his feet.”
    24. 32. Bukhari Volume 1, Book 4, Number 241: Muslim Book 019, Number 4421:   Once the Prophet was offering prayers at the Ka'ba. Abu Jahl was sitting with some of his companions. One of them said to the others, &quot;Who amongst you will bring the abdominal contents (intestines, etc.) of a camel of Bani so and so and put it on the back of Muhammad , when he prostrates?“… Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 482: Muslim Book 039, Number 6718: Abu Jahl said, &quot; If I see Muhammad praying at the Ka'ba, I will tread on his neck .&quot; … So revelations were given as threatening them: Qur’an Surah 96 13-18 Tell me if he (the disbeliever, Abû Jahl ) denies (the truth, i.e. this Qur'ân), and turns away? ... If he ( Abû Jahl ) ceases not, We will catch him by the forelock, A lying, sinful forelock! Then, let him call upon his council (of helpers), We will call the guards of Hell ( to deal with him )!
    25. 33. THE SATANIC VERSES: It was at this time that Mohammed was tricked by Satan into giving a false revelation to appease his enemies in Mecca. Tabari VI:108 / Ishaq:165 “ The Messenger saw his tribe turn on him . He was pained to see them shunning the message he had brought from Allah. So he longed for something that would reconcile his tribe to him .” … “ So Muhammad debated with himself and fervently desired such an outcome. Then Allah revealed: ‘By the Star when it sets, your comrade does not err, nor is he deceived; nor does he speak out of his own desire. And when he came to the words: ‘ Have you thought about Al-Lat , Al-Uzza and Manat ,’”
    26. 34. THE SATANIC VERSES: Tabari VI:108 / Ishaq:165 “ Satan , when he was meditating upon it and desiring to bring reconciliation, cast on his tongue , because of his inner longings and what he desired, the words : ‘ These are exalted high-flying cranes ( goddesses ). Verily their intercession is accepted with approval .” “ When the Quraysh heard this , they rejoiced and were delighted at the way in which he spoke of their gods , and they listened to him. While the Muslims , trusting their Prophet in respect to the messages which he brought, did not suspect him of a vain desire or slip. When he came to the prostration, having completed the surah, he prostrated himself and the Muslims did likewise , obeying his command and following his example .”
    27. 36. Qur’an 022.052 So Allah revealed: “ Never did We send a messenger or a prophet before you, but, when he framed a desire, Satan threw some vanity into his desire: but Allah will cancel anything (vain) that Satan throws in.” Tabari VI:110 “ Thus Allah removed the sorrow from his Messenger, reassured him about that which he had feared, and cancelled the words which Satan had cast on his tongue, that their gods were exalted high-flying cranes (goddesses) whose intercession was accepted with approval. He now revealed… Qur’an 053: 19 - 23 Have you considered Lat and 'Uzza, And Manat, the other third (of the pagan deities)? Are there sons for you , and daughters for Him ? This is certainly an unjust apportioning. These are only names which you and your fathers have invented. No authority was sent down by God for them. They only follow conjecture and wish fulfillment even though guidance had come to them already from their Lord.
    28. 37. Bukhari:V4B54N429/ V5B58N227 “ The Prophet said, ‘ While I was at the House or standing place in a state midway between sleep and wakefulness , an angel recognized me as the man lying between two men. A golden tray full of wisdom and belief was brought to me and my body was cut open from the throat to the lower part of my pubic area.’ … ‘ My abdomen was washed with Zamzam water taking away doubt or polytheism or pre-Islamic beliefs or error. Then he took out my heart and filled it with belief and wisdom before returning it to its place. Then Al-Buraq , a white animal , smaller than a mule and bigger than a donkey was brought to me and I set out with Gabriel .’ The Prophet said, ‘ The animal’s step was so wide it reached the farthest point within reach of the animal’s sight .”
    29. 38. Ishaq:182 “ When we arrived at the Temple in Jerusalem , we found Abraham , Moses , and Jesus , along with a company of prophets. I acted as their imam in prayer .” … “ Moses was a ruddy faced man, thinly fleshed, curly haired with a hooked nose. Jesus was a reddish man with lank wet hair and many freckles.” Ishaq:184 “… , a ladder was brought to me finer than any I have ever seen. An angel was in charge of it and under his command were 12,000 angels each of them having 12,000 angels under his command.”
    30. 39. Ishaq:186 “ He took me into Paradise and there I saw a damsel with dark red lips. I asked her to whom she belonged, for she pleased me much when I saw her. She said, Zayd [Muhammad’s adopted son]. … “ Then we ascended to the second heaven . The guard at the gate asked, “Who is it?” Gabriel said, “Gabriel.” The gatekeeper asked, “Who is with you?” He said, “Muhammad” “ Has he been sent for?” He said, “Yes.” Then I met Jesus and Yahya ( John ) who said, “You are welcomed , O brother and Pious Prophet .” Rising above Jesus: We ascended to the third heaven . There I met Joseph and greeted him. He replied, “You are welcomed , brother and Prophet !” We ascended to the fourth heaven … There I met Idris [ Enoch ]. He said, “ Welcome Prophet .”
    31. 40. We ascended to the fifth heaven … . There I greeted Aaron .’” Then we ascended to the sixth heaven … . There I met and greeted Moses . When I proceeded on, he started weeping and on being asked why, he said, “Followers of this youth who was sent after me will enter Paradise in greater number than my followers” We ascended to the seventh heaven … . There I greeted Abraham . He ascended with me till I was taken to such a height, I heard the scraping of pens. I was shown Al-Bait-al-Ma’mur ( Allah’s House ). I asked Gabriel about it and he said, “ This is where 70,000 angels perform prayers … .” I was shown Sidrat-ul-Muntaha (a tree) and I saw its Nabk fruits which resembled clay jugs. Its leaves were like elephant ears. Four rivers originated at its root; I asked Gabriel about them. “The two hidden rivers are in Paradise, and the apparent ones are the Euphrates and the Nile.”
    32. 41. Fifty prayers were enjoined on me [by Allah]. I descended till I reached Moses who asked, “What have you done?” I said, “I have been ordered to offer fifty prayers a day.” He said, “ Your followers cannot bear fifty prostrations . I tested people before you and tried my level best to bring the tribe of Israel to obedience [ Islam ]. Your followers cannot put up with such an obligation. So, return to your Lord and request a reduction in the burden.” I returned and requested Allah (for reduction) and He made it forty . I had a similar discussion with Moses. Then I returned to Allah for reduction and He made it thirty , then twenty , then ten . … Ultimately Allah reduced it to five . When I came to Moses … I said that I had requested so many times I felt ashamed and surrendered (to Allah’s final order). When I left, I heard a voice saying, “I have passed My Order and have lessened the burden on My Worshipers.”
    33. 42. After that I beheld men with lips like the lips of camels , having their hands filled with lumps of fire which they stuffed into their own mouths . The lumps of fire issued again from the other end of their bodies . I asked, &quot;Who are these, o Gabriel?&quot;and he replied, &quot; These have wrongfully devoured the property of orphans !?”
    34. 43. Next I observed men with bellies the like of which I had never seen, and on the road were crocodiles rushing upon them like mad camels and driving them into the fire , trampling upon them so that they could never escape from it. I asked, &quot;Who are these, o Gabriel?&quot; and he replied, &quot; They are usurers .&quot;
    35. 44. After that, I beheld men who had before them nice plump meat and at their sides foul and putrid meat , but they ate of the latter and abstained from the former. I asked, &quot;Who are these, o Gabriel?&quot; and he replied, &quot; They are those who abandon the women Allah has permitted to them, and go instead to those whom Allah has prohibited to them.&quot;
    36. 45. Then I saw women hanging by their breasts and asked, &quot;Who are these?&quot; Gabriel replied, &quot; They are women who attribute to their husbands children they did not father. &quot; The wrath of Allah is very great towards a woman who introduces into the family one who does not belong to it, to eat up their plunder and to observe their nakedness.
    37. 46. Bukhari: V1 B22 N28 “ The Prophet said: ‘I was shown the Hell Fire and the majority of its dwellers were women who are disbelievers or ungrateful.’ …” Muslim: B1 N142 “‘ O womenfolk , you should ask for forgiveness for I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of Hell .’ … ‘ You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses . You lack common sense , fail in religion and rob the wisdom of the wise.’ … ‘Your lack of common sense can be determined from the fact that the evidence of two women is equal to one man. That is a proof.’”
    38. 47. Ishaq:184 “ Umm, Abu Talib’s daughter, said: “The Apostle went on no journey except while he was in my house. He slept in my home that night after he prayed the final night prayer. A little before dawn he woke us, saying, ‘O Umm, I went to Jerusalem.’ He got up to go out and I grabbed hold of his robe and laid bare his belly. I pleaded, ‘O Muhammad, don’t tell the people about this for they will know you are lying and will mock you .’ He said, ‘By Allah, I will tell them.’ I told a negress slave of mine, ‘Follow him and listen.’” Ok, Now. That’s Ridiculous !
    39. 48. Ishaq:183 “ Many Muslims gave up their faith. Some went to Abu Bakr and said, ‘What do you think if your friend now? He alleges that he went to Jerusalem last night and prayed there and came back to Mecca.’ Bakr said that they were lying about the Apostle . But they told him that he was in the mosque at this very moment telling the Quraysh about it. Bakr said, ‘ If he says so then it must be true… ‘“ No, really , I just can’t believe this.
    40. 49. Mecca Jerusalem Medina  765 Miles Islam’s claim on Jerusalem is largely due to Mohammed’s Night Ride to the “farthest mosque” in Jerusalem. The distance from Mecca to Jerusalem is 765 miles , about the length of California. And Mohammed needed to make a round trip of 1530 miles in one night. The Jewish temple had been destroyed in 70 A.D. , about 550 years before Mohammed’s ride.

While the Khazraj were polytheists and idolaters, they had gained the mastery over the Jews , raiding them . Whenever any dispute arose the Jews would say, ‘A prophet will be sent soon . His time is at hand. We shall follow him and with him as our leader we shall kill you .’” Ishaq:198/Tabari VI:125 “After the Messenger had spoken to the group from Yathrib they said, ‘Take note.

The terms were that we should not associate anything with Allah , we should not steal , should not commit adultery or fornication , should not kill our children , should not slander our neighbors , and we should not disobey Muhammad in what is proper. If we fulfilled this, we would have paradise , and if we failed Allah would punish us in hell .”
    45. 55. Ishaq:212 “ The Quraysh persecuted his followers, seducing some from their religion and exiling others . They became insolent towards Muhammad’s God and rejecte d His gracious purpose. They accused His prophet of lying . So He gave permission to His Apostle to fight those who had wronged him. He said in his Qur’an: ‘ Fight them so that there will be no more seduction, until no Muslim is seduced from Islam . Fight them until the only religion is Islam and Allah alone is worshiped .’” Tabari VI:140 “The Quraysh were now anxious about Muhammad going there as they knew he had decided to join them in order to make war on them .” Tabari VI:142 / Ishaq:222 “Thereupon Abu Jahl said, ‘I think that we should take one young , strong , well-born man from each clan and give each a sharp sword. They should make for him and strike him with their swords as one man and kill him .’”
    46. 56. Tabari VI: 142 “ Gabriel came to the Messenger and said, ‘ Do not spend this night in the bed in which you usually sleep.’ When the first third of the night had past, the young men gathered at his door and waited for him to go to sleep so that they could fall upon him . When Muhammad saw what they intended to do, he said to Ali [ his adopted son ], ‘ Lie on my bed and wrap yourself up in my green cloak , the one I use when I go to bed . Nothing unpleasant will befall you from them .’”

May my father be sacrificed for you, take one of these two she-camels of mine.&quot;… Then Allah's Apostle and Abu Bakr reached a cave on the mountain of Thaur and stayed there for three nights. [The Quraysh pursued them to kill them] Muslim: Volume 5, Book 57, Number 5: I said to the Prophet while I was in the Cave. &quot;If any of them should look under his feet, he would see us.&quot; He said, &quot;O Abu Bakr!

Imran … , The angel brought down my likeness ; the Messenger married me when I was seven ; my marriage was consummated when I was nine ; he married me when I was a virgin , no other man having shared me with him; inspiration came to him when he and I were in a single blanket ; I was one of the dearest people to him; a verse of the Qur’an was revealed concerning me when the community was almost destroyed; and I saw Gabriel when none of his other wives saw him.” Bukhari:V5 B57 N119 … Prophet said, “Um, don’t trouble me by harming Aisha, for by Allah, the Divine Inspiration never came to me while I was under the blanket of any woman among you except her .”
