My Rebuttal to the Anti-Islam Film Innocence of Muslims By BY Magdy Abdalshafy
Recently the Anti-Islam group screened a new film on net to discredit ProphetMuhammad, the same claims in the film can be traced further back intohistory, these began with the Crusades, the priests at that time used to distributebooklets among people and soldiers with the aim of presenting the prophet of Islamas a fraud prophet, terrorist, womanizer and murderer.However, though the crusades ended, anti-Islam group regrugitate the same claimsto discredit our beloved prophet.The aim is clear: fighting the swift spread of Islam as Islam is reported to be thefastest growing religion.
The Orientalist W Montgomery Watt when he says:Of all the worlds greatest men none has been so much maligned as Muhammad. It is easyto see how this has come about. For centuries Islam was the great enemy ofChristendom, for Christendom was in direct contact with no other organized statescomparable in power to the Muslims. The Byzantine empire, after losing its provinces inSyria and Egypt, was being attacked in Asia Minor, while Western Europe was threatenedthrough Spain and Sicily. Even before the Crusades focused attention on the expulsion of theSarcens from the Holy Land, medieval war-propaganda, free from the restraints of factualitywas building up a conception of the great enemy. At one point Muhammad wastransformed into Mahound, the prince of darkness. By the eleventh century the idea aboutIslam and Muslims current in the crusading armies were such travesties that they had a badeffect on morale. The crusaders had been led to expect the worst of theirenemies, and, when they found many chivalrous knights among them, they were filled withdistrust for the authorities of their own religion.
What the film says will be refuted so easily in this presentation. So we are going to rebut these points that the film say:1. Was Muhammad a Bastard?2. Was Muhammad called, the unknown father?3. Is the narration of the prphet talking to an animal and asking him women true?4. Did Warka dictate the Quran to Muhammad?5. Did Muhammad fell in love with Zeinb so he divorced her from her husband?6. Did Muhammad marry sixty women? Was he a Womanizer?7. Was Muhammad a child Molester?8. Was Muhammad a terrorist?9. Did Muhammad order the murder of children10. Did Muhammad order the murder of certain women?11. Did Muhammad accept any women who offer herself(as a wife)?
(1) Was Muhammad a Bastard?The Anti-Islam film states that the great prophet was the son of unknown father. Theydepend on Wakadi, a narrator, whom all the hadith scientists considered him as a liarwho composed many false hadiths and attributed to the prophet.Please note that Hadith scientists never accepted this narrator because of this particularhadith, he also authored hadith which says something good about the prophet butscientists reject them all as he lied about many.The testimony of one of the bitter enemies of the prophetWhen the Roman governor Heracles met the Quraysh nobleman Abû Sufyân who was anavowed enemy of Islam, he asked him a number of questions about Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him). Among the matters that Heracles asked about was the lineage ofthe Prophet (peace be upon him).Abû Sufyân informed him that Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a man ofrespectable lineage. To this Heracles said: “Likewise, the Messengers share the lineage ofthe people to whom they are sent.” *Sahîh al-Bukhârî (1/5-6) and Sahîh Muslim (3/1393-1397)]
Thw Lineage of the Prphet Muhammad Ibn ^Asakir said reporting the lineage of the Prophet“ Know, may Allah be merciful to you by guiding you to the acceptable deeds, that our Master Muhammad, the son of ^Abdullah, the son of ^Abdul Muttalib, the son of Hashim, the son of ^Abdu Manaf, the son of Qusayy, the son of Kilab, the son of Murrah, the son of Ka^b, the son of Luayy, the son of Ghalib, the son of Fihr, the son of Malik, the son of an-Nadr, the son of Kinanah, the son of Khuzaymah, the son of Mudrikah, the son of Ilyas, the son of Mudar, the son of Nizar, the son of Ma^add, the son of ^Adnan- -is the slave of Allah, His Messenger, His Prophet, and His Khalil.The Prophet (peace be upon him) said
(2) Is the narration of the prophet talking to an animal and asking himabout women true? The film producer depends on a story narrated about the prophet by unreliable person that all hadith scholars (Al-Asklany, ibn Heban, and many others) considered him a liar. The rejected story says that the prophet talked to a donkey and asked it about its name. The pophet, wishing to use it in his travels, asked it if it liked females’ donkeys. The donkey said”No”. The false story says that the donkey helped the prophet so much. Please note that the Wakadi who narrated the previous story was the same man who narrated this story. He is unreliable man whom the Hadith scientists branded as a liar. Some ancient compliers collected stories from the mouth of people leaving the mission of deciding which is right and which is wrong to Hadith scientists. Muslim scholars could have considered this story real and presented it as a miracle of the prophet but they are not like this. They have standards on which they decide what is wrong and what is right.
Laugh with the corrupted bible stories27 When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it lay down under Balaam, and he wasangry and beat it with his staff. 28 Then the Lord opened the donkey’s mouth, and itsaid to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?”(the number22:27)In another story the corrupted bible tells us about a donkey which is wiser than aprophet16 Buthe was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey—an animal without speech—who spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness.(2 Peter 2:16)My question is “ is the Bible a fake since it contains such absurdities?Note the false story about the prophet is not mentioned in the Quran and thatMuslim hadith scientists considered it a lie.The Film producer is not honest because he cited a false story a bout the prophet.
(3) Did Warka dictate the Quran to Muhammad?Who is Warka?Warka had been an idol-worshipper who turned to Christianity before his death. Hewasn’t a priest as anti-Islam claim.Accoeding to the prophet BiographyUpon seeing the angel and receiving the first few verses, Muhammas came back tohis wife and told her about the story. Khdiga, the prophet’s wife, took herhusband, Muhammad to Waraka, her niece, and the prophet told him about hisexperience. Warka told the Prophet that what he had received as the same as that Moses hadreceived and whished to have a long life to support him.In Fact, Waraka died three days after his meeting with the prophet.However, nowhere in any biography did Waraka say that he would author a book forMuhammad.
My Rebuttal: mental evidencesNowhere in any biography or historical references did Waraka promiseKhadiga that he would write the contents of the Quran to Muhammad.Those who brazenly propagate such fallacies will fail to answer thisquestion:When the prophet met Waraka, he had already received Just one versefrom Quran.Waraka died three days after the prophet met him. Had he dedicate theQuran for 23 years from his grave?
Did Warka or any body dictate the Quran to Muhammad? ContinuedThe Quarn is not a man-made book, it is divineThe Holy Quran contains the following important themes:The Holy Quran contains many verses which were relevant to certain events andoccasions. Did Waraka know about these events would happen and wrote versesrelevant to them?The Quran also contains a complete ethical system which no body could achieveitThe Quran is the Word of God and contains complete guidance for mankind.Much of the Quran is about God, His attributes and mans relationship to Him.But it also contains directives for its followers, historical accounts of certainprophets and peoples, arguments for accepting Muhammad as a genuineProphet and good news for the believers and warnings for the disbelievers.Broadly speaking, the contents of the Holy Quran fall into five main categories:Nature of the Spiritual World, the Law and Commandments ,historical Accountsthe Wisdom and The Prophecies
Did Warka or any body dictate the Quran to Muhammad? ContinuedSecond Evidence: PropheciesThe Holy Quran contains many prophecies; foremost among these is the truimph ofthe Romans over the Persians who were far stronger than them. What is reallystunning about this prophecy is that it tells usWhen this battle would take place.Where this battle would take place.Another scientific miracle in this prophecy is that it tells us that the place of thisbattle would be the lowest place on the earth.It is now established that this battle took a place near Palestine which isactually, the lowest place on the earth.Did Waraka or any body know that a battle between the Romans and the Persianswould take place and the Romans who would be defeated first would defeat thePersians within ten years and even determined where this battle would take placeand most importantly knew that this place is the lowest place on the Surface of theearth?
Did Warka or any body dictate the Quran to Muhammad? ContinuedFor the sake of brevity, we will just mention some of these, we willjust mention those that have been fulfilled in our modern times.The Holy Quran tells us that man will be able to conquer theuniverse.Did any body imagine that or dare to think about that.The Holy Quran predicted the age of marinesThe Holy Quran predicted the landing on the moonThe Holy Quran the highly advanced means of communicationsThe Quran prophesises that the body of the Pharaoh will bepreserved for future generations. This was proved correct when themummy of Merneptah (the Pharaoh of the Exodus) was discoveredwell preserved in 1898, and it can be seen on display in the RoyalMummies Room of the Egyptian Museum, Cairo.
Did Warka or any body dictate the Quran to Muhammad? ContinuedProphecies that the prophet gave and were fulfilled in ourmodern time, for the sake of brevity I will mention just fewthat we all must have seen by our eyes: The Second world war The Gulf war The age of skyscarpers Moral decadence The murder of some Muslim leaders The economic blockade on Iraq and Syria Surrogacy( womb hiring) The spread of unknown diseases resulting from open sex The advancement of medicine The sudden death The climatic change
Did Warka or any body dictate the Quran to Muhammad? ContinuedFourth Evidence: The Quranic storiesThe Quranic stories prove that the Holy Quran wasn’t copied from the Holy Book.If Waraka had dictated biblical stories to Muhammad(please remember Warakahad already died), why do some of these Quranic stories differ from the biblicalones in the most important parts?The story of Haman as being the counselor of the Egyptian pharaoh in Quran is thecorrect while that of the Bible is wrong, The Rosetta Stone supports the Quranicnarration in this regard.The Story of the Arch of Noah in the Quran being landed on Mountain Goudi issupported by archeological excavation, the bible errs in this regard.However there are stories which have never been told in the Bible.The Bible stories are monotonous and not inspiring while the Quranic ones notonly inspiring but also soften your hearts and fill you with ecstasy.
Did Warka or any body dictate the Quran to Muhammad? ContinuedThird Evidence: the Scientific MiraclesThe Holy Quran contains many scientific statements which are in completeagreement with our modern science: Did Waraka know about these facts anddictated them from his graveFor example: there are references to The Expansion of the UniverseThe specific characteristics of the Pulsar and the Black holesThe end of the sun as a red giantThe Permanent darkness of the universeLack of Oxygen in high layers of the horizonsThe internal currents of the internal seasThe sea fissures from which fire comes out.The development of the human embryo in mothers’ wombsThe internal currents the spherical shape of the earth and its rotation the nervous system sensors on the human skin
Lady Zeinb, the wife of the prophetDid prophet Muhammad enforce his adopted son( Once-slave) to divorce his wifeand marry her because he fell in love with her? This what the Anti-Islampropagates. The trash film propagates that the honourable prophet practiced…withher before marriage and he, according to the film, wrote a Quran to legalize themarriage from the ex-wife of the adopted sons.My RebuttalHow can a man ask for such a shameful act from a woman then asks her to followhim as a prophet?How can a woman follow a man like this as a prophet and bear all the difficulties ofworship.Zeinb was the prophet’s niece and he knew her before he was appointed aprophet, the false allegation that the prophet fell in love with Zeinb the momenthe saw her is false because:She was the prophet’s niece and he knew her before he was appointed a prophetand long before Hijab was ordained… if he had loved her, he would have betrothedher and she would willingly accept him.
Lady Zeinb, the wife of the prophet “continued”The Prophet Muhammad married Zeinb, his niece, to his adopted son Zeid who whowas the prophet’s slave but the prophet manumitted him and made him his adoptedson.The prophet talked to Zeinb’s brother about the matter of her marriage, they were sohappy as they thought the prophet wanted her for himself.Later they discovered that they wanted her for Zeid.The prophet was keen to fulfill thismarriage in order to make people know that there are not difference between slavesand nobles.Zeid divorces ZeinbMany times did Zeid open a talk with the prophet as regard divorcing Zeinb but theprophet always asked him not to do?In the course of time life became impossible between the couple and Zeinb wasdivorced as a result.It was a Divine decree that the prophet should marry Zeinb to nullify the law ofadoption overwhelming at that time and it was hard on Muslims to break this customas they had already taken many adopted sons.So it is the prophet, the paradigm and the example, who should first follow the newdivine Law.
Lady Zeinb, the wife of the prophet” continued”Islam cancelled adoption because at that time the adopted son was given thesame rights of the genetic son besides he could live among the females of theadoptee.In Islam, any one from the outside of the family should not live among the thefemale members of the family.However, Islam places much interest on the care of the once adopted sons but ina different way; you can give him whatever you like to give but there should adistinction between him and the biological son.Also the once-adopted son can marry any female from the family that adoptedhim.Though the prophet knew well that God decreed that he should marry the ex-wifeof his adopted son, the prophet was reluctant as he knew what people’s reactionwould be. However God blamed the prophet for that and the marriage wasconsummated and this custom was nullified among the Muslims since the prophetbroke it himself.
Was the prophet Muhammad a womanizer?Anti-Islam group lies about the number of the wives of the prophet saying that theywere 60 while the real number was (11), when he died he had (9) because two ofthem died in his lifetime. So they claim that he was a fraud since he married such anumber.My RebuttalSo what they would say when they know that all the prophet in the Torah werepolygamousIn Exodus 21:10, a man can marry an infinite amount of women without any limits tohow many he can marry.In 2 Samuel 5:13; 1 Chronicles 3:1-9, 14:3, King David had six wives and numerousconcubines.In 1 Kings 11:3, King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubinesIn 2 Chronicles 11:21, King Solomons son Rehoboam had 18 wives and 60concubines.
Was the prophet Muhammad a womanizer?” continued”In HinduismLord Krishna had 16,000 wives and 36000 concubinesLord Visnu & Brahma also had multiple consortsKsatriyas are recorded in the itihasas (Mahabharata/Ramayana/etc.) as having asmany as thousands of wives & thousands of progeny.Please note the following points regarding the marriages of the prophet:The prophet didn’t marry till he reached the age of 25.His first wife was 15 years older than him. He remained with her for 25 yearswithout any new wife.After the death of the first wife, he remained without a wife for three years. Hissecond wife was 55(other sources says 80) years old, five years older than him, shewas a widow who lost her husband and would be tortured if she came back to herpagan family. The prophet’s wives were all widows who lost their husbands (with the exceptionof Aisha).Had the prophet been a womanizer, he would have married many women while hewas still in the prime of youth, not a little over 50.
Was the prophet Muhammad a womanizer?” continued”Had the prophet been a womanizer, he would have accepted the idolater’s offerof marrying him to as many beautiful noble virgins as he wished but oncondition that he left his call. The offer also included amassing money till hebecame the wealthiest of all and also announcing him a king over them. ( Theprophet was still very young when this offer was given to him, also this offerwas made several times while the prophet was helpless and was facing thedangers of death on the hands of the pagans.)The pagans set him two choices: either he accepted the offer they gave him orhe had to face persecution and death.So was he a womanizer? So do you call the man who marry the helpless widowsa womanizer?Reasons for the prophet’s marriagesHe married them to support them and to protect them from their pagan tribesTo attract more people to the fold of Islam, especially if these ladies weredaughters of heads of the tribe.He married two daughters of his companions who supported him to honourthem.
Was the prophet Muhammad a child molester?” continued”Was Muhammad a child molester as the film states? The Plain answer is “NO”The film comments on the marriage of Lady Aisha, who was, according to hadithsnine years. However, some scholars, according to some calculations, say that shemust have been over fifteen.However, since hadiths recorded in Bukhari, an authenticated hadith collection, saysthat she was nine years when the prophet consummated marriage with her, we aregoing to deal with this point.Before we go neither Abu-Bakr nor his wife object to the proposal of the marriage asthe film states.
Was the prophet Muhammad a child molester?” continued”Customs of Marriage was different a long time agoA man living in the 21st century should not make his culture a model for ancientcultures to follow.It is historically established that the Arab females in the early Arabia, like the otherparts of the ancient worlds, used to marry as early as the age of nine. It was aprevalent custom.Amro ibn Al’as, an important Islamic figure , was 11years older than his son( thismeans that he was ten when he married, so how old was his wife?Please note that Aisha had been engaged before the prophet proposed to her andremained in her engagement for 2 years.Please note that Aisha had been engaged before the prophet proposed to her andremained in her engagement for 2 years. (it was a custom at that time)
Was the prophet Muhammad a child molester?” continued”The Age of marriage in Ancient CivilizationThe Age of marriage in Judaism and ChristianityHow old was Mary when she gave birth to Jesus ?According to the "Oxford Dictionary Bible" commentary, Mary (peace be uponher) was 12 years old when she gave birth to Jesus. Please note that she wasengaged to Joseph, ninety years old man, who consummated his marriage withher after Jesus was born. So how old was she when she was betrothed…at leastaround nine years.Amro ibn Al’as, an important Islamic figure , was 11years older than his son( thismeans that he was ten when he married, so how old was his wife?An Encyclopedia of ReligionTalmudic law fixed the legal age for contracting marriage at puberty.The prevailing marriageable age for girls in Europe during the Renaissance wastwelve years.During the 17th century marriage was fulfilled between persons who had not yetachieved puberty, as was also true in India until very recent times …
Was the prophet Muhammad a child molester?” continued”According to Christian Scriptures"Now kill all the boys [innocent kids]. And kill every woman who has slept with aman, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with aman.“Numbers 31:17-18After the conquest of Midian and Moab, and the great venereal plague, Moses(peace be on him) ordered that all the women "who have known a man" bekilled but that "all the young girls, who have not known a man by lying withhim" be kept alive for the Israelites.According to this verse, the following enactments was issued:Gemara: Our Rabbis taught: A girl of the age of 3 years may be betrothed bysexual intercourse. "The Babylonian TalmudSince the only females left fit for marriage and wholesome relations wereprepubescent virgins, a Jewish law concerning child marriage was enacted. Thatlaw is found in the Babylonian Talmud:"Rabbi Joseph said, Come and hear. A maiden aged 3 years and a day may beacquired in marriage by coition.
Was the prophet Muhammad a child molester?” continued” See it yourself Mishnah: A girl of the age of 3 years and a day may be betrothed, subject to her fathers approval, by sexual intercourse. The Jewish law Today, the Jewish law for marriage, sets the age of consent for females at the age of 11 yrs. ) I do not know if modern Jewish law still allows (in theory) betrothal by intercourse as it was practiced in ancient times.

The age of Marriage according to the Hindu ScripturesA girl should be given in marriage before reaching puberty“A girl should be given in marriage before (she attains the age of) puberty. He whoneglects it,commits sin. Some (declare, that a girl shall be given in Marriage ) before she wearsclothes.”Also read“Let him give his daughter, while she still goes naked, to a man who has not brokenthe vow of chastity and who possesses good qualities, or even to one destitute ofgood qualities ; let him not keep (the maiden) in (his house) after she has reached theage of puberty. He who does not give away a marriageable daughter during threeyears doubtlessly contracts a guilt equal to (that of) destroying an embryo. Such willbe the case if anybody asks her in marriage, and also if nobody demands her. Manuhas declared that at each appearance of the menses (the father incurs the guilt of) amortal sin.”-( Baudhayana Smriti ,Prasna 4, Adhyaya 1, verses 11-13)[Translated by Georg Buhler,Sacred Laws of Aryas Part II,Oxford ,Clarendon Press, 1879]
The Age of Marriage According to the English Common LawHistorically, the attitude of the English common law was that a person under 7 yrslacked the mental ability to consent to marriage, and that between 7 yrs and pubertythere could be consent but not a consummated marriage.At common law, therefore, the marriage of a person between the ages of 7 and 12 or14 was "inchoate" and would become "choate" on reaching puberty, if no objectionwas raised. (Encyclopedia Britannica on English Common LawThe Age of Marriage According to the Christian Marital DoctrineThe Church set the age for marriage at puberty, when girls reached the age of twelveand boys, the age of fourteen.Children could be betrothed at seven years of age, although this would not bebinding for another five to seven years.The lay authorities accepted the Churchs doctrine on marriage, but betrothals andmarriages did occasionally take place before the parties were seven years old.Ward, English Noblewomen in the Later Middle Ages
The Custom is still practised : Today, in many parts of North Africa, Arabia, andIndia, girls are wedded and bedded between the ages of five and nine; and no self-respecting female remains unmarried beyond the age of puberty."(_The Cradle ofErotica_, Julian Press, New York:1962)A recent study about the age of puberty says ".. Until recently, puberty that started at 8years of age or later in girls was considered normal.“http://familydoctor.org/online/famdocen/home/children/parents/parents-teens/445.htmlIn the USA was 10 hardly 100 years ago and 11 in the UK, Talmud allowing 3 year oldsto get married! etc.In Japan, people can legally have sex at age 13, and in Spain they can legally have sex atage 12In the USA last century, the age of consent was 10 years old. California was the firststate to change the age of consent to 14, which it did in 1889. After California, other USstates joined in and raised the age of consent too. (Source:http://www.ageofconsent.com/comments/numberone.htm)The French penal code raised the age from 11 to 13 only a century ago. In England, itwas only in 1929 (70 years ago) that the ancient Christian minimum age for themarriage of females, which was 12, was abandoned.
Was Muhammad a TerroristReading the Biography of Prophet Muhammad will prove that he was merciful tothe world(s)… for the sake of brevity we will choose the following points:He was merciful towaeds his enemies:The great prophet forgave the Mecceans when he conquered Mecca, among themwere those who tortured him psychologically and even physically.Among them were those who laid the disgraceful siege that lasted for three yearswith result that some of his close relatives died.Among them were those who led wars against him and instigated the Arabs againsthim.Among them were those who belied him and tortured his early companions to theextent that some of them died.Among them was the man who threw his pregnant daughter from the back of hercamel causing her a deadly injury that caused her to die after a short time.Among them those who forced the early helpless Muslims to migrate leavingeverything behind to save their lives.They were all standing in utter humility waiting for their heads to bedecapitated, but the prophet forgave them all saying: GO YOU ARE FREE
Was Muhammad a terrorist “continued”The total number of those who were killed in all the wars that the prophet led in 8years was” was” 439” person, I say”439” persons in 8 years (28 or 29 wars) ---( thenumber of the Muslims killed was 317)For the sake of brevity, Compare this to the murder in the bible, (Exodus 32:26-29 NLT) three thousand people were killed in one day.. (2 Kings 19:35 NAB) 185.000 persons.Some estimate says the number of killing in the bible is at least 2,476,633.( pleaseremember that the number of infidel killed in Islam was 439)Did Muhammad kill children?Nowhere in the biography of the prophet he is reported to have ordered themurder of children. Most amazingly, he considered them better than the believersthemselves, he always said “ children are born with pure hearts (born with naturaldisposition).He also prohibited killing children during his wars with the polytheists.
Did the prophet tolerate killing women?Nowhere in the authenticated books or biographies did the prophet ordered themurder of any women.He forgave a Jewish woman who poisoned the food to kill him.He forgave the women who killed his dear uncle and cleft his belly aside, taking hisliver out and eating it.How can it be logically accepted that he ordered the murder of women.He ordered that no woman be killed even caught in the field of the battle.He rebuked his companions because he found a woman killed on the battle field.Please note that all the narrations that he ordered the murder of certaim women asthey hurt him are not authenticated by Hadith scholars.
Was the prophet Muhammad a Terrorist ? ContinuedIslam permits fighting in self-defense, in defense of ones faith, or on thepart of those whose basic rights have been violated. It lays down strictrules of combat that include prohibitions against harming civilians andagainst destroying crops, trees, and livestock.Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin nothostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not, aggressors” [Quran 2:190]“And those who, when great wrong is done to them, defend themselves, Theguerdon of an ill deed is an ill the like thereof. But whosoever pardoneth andamendeth, his wage is the affair of Allah. Lo! He loveth not wrong doersAnd whoso defendeth himself after he hath suffered wrong for such, there isno way (of blame) against them” [Quran 42:39-41]
The Bible orders killing children, women and even animals Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass. ( Samuel(1),3:15) Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women( Ezekiel ,5:9) heir children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished. ( Isaiah ,13:15:16) But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.(Luke,19:17) Please compare this with the prophet saying"Do not kill any old person, any child or any woman" (Abu Dawud). "Do not kill themonks in monasteries" or "Do not kill the people who are sitting in places ofworship" (Musnad of Ibn Hanbal).
Did the Prophet accept any women who gave themselves to himThe film tells us that a certain woman whose husband went with a carvan offeredherself to the prophet and the prophet looked at the women with a lust andordered her to wait him in the tent.My RebuttalNowhere in the biography is a woman who gave herself to the prophet in such ashameful way as the film presents.Even the false narration that the film depends on never said what the film said.However, all the women in the time of the prophet aspired to be among his wives.It is reported that a woman came to the prophet asking him to marry her withoutdowry but the prophet looked at the ground as a sign of gentle respect.However the hadith scholars are divided:Some says that a certain woman( they differ regarding her name) gave herself to theprophet as a wife.The majority says the prophet didn’t accept the women who offered to givethemselves in marriage to the prophet.
The story of Lady Safyya , the Mother of the BelieversThe Anti-Islam group propagate that the prophet killed her husband and herfather then enforced her to marry him.After the recurrent attempts of the Jews of Kyber, a place near Madina, ofundermining the Islamic state, news reached the prophet that the Jews andsome pagan Arabs were going to attack the Muslim state.During this war, Zeinb’s father and husband were killed in this battle. Zeinb’sfather fell in captivity and the prophet made a peace treaty and forgave them.Note that Zeinb’s father had a very shameful history against the prophet: Her father had planned to assassinate Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allahbe upon him) after the battle of Uhud, He had conspired with the Banu Qurayzato exterminate all the Muslims during the battle of al-Khandaq, however he waskilled because he violated the terms of surrender.Zeinb’s father was killed because he violated an agreement with the prophet, heknew well that the punishment of the agreement was murder.
Safyya fell captive in the hands of the Muslim army.Many women fell captive in the hands of the Muslim army, among them was Safyyawhom the prophet never heard about. When a companion came to the prophetasking him for a concubine, the prophet told him to go and choose whoever hewanted.On seeing Safyya the man, knowing that she was the daughter of the leader of thejews, took her.The companions told the prophet that daughter of the leader of the Jews went to onethem.However, the prophet told him to take another woman and leave Safyya.The merciful prophet set two choices for her: either she was set free and be returnedto her tribe or SET FREE and be married to the prophet.So the Great prophet honored the lady by setting her free.Had she not been taken from the Muslim man, she would have remained not the restof her life.Knowing that he is truly a prophet from God she refused to come back to her tribeand preferred to marry the prophet.
Why did Safyya accept to marry the prophet?In fact, Safyya believed in the prophet long before the battle of Khybar, thefollowing story tells us how:She said, (may Allah be pleased with her): I was my fathers favorite and also afavorite with my uncle Yasir. They could never see me with one of their childrenwithout picking me up. When the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings ofAllah be upon him) came to Medina, my father and my uncle went to see him. Itwas very early in the morning and between dawn and sunrise. They did notreturn until the sun was setting. They came back worn out anddepressed, walking with slow, heavy steps. I smiled to them as I always did, butneither of them took any notice of me because they were so miserable. I headAbu Yasir ask my father, "Is it him?" "Yes, it is." "Can you recognize him? Can youverify it?" "Yes, I can recognize him too well." "What do you feel towards him?""Enmity, enmity as long as I live."
Safyya receives glad tiding of marrying the prophetOne night, before the siege, Safiyya had a dream that a moon fell in her lap. Shetold her husband, al-Rabi, about what she had seen. Al-Rabi respondedsaying, “That is only because you are wishing for the king of theHijaz, Muhammad!” He then slapped her, leaving a bruise on her eye, whichremained there until Muhammad took her as his own bride. When the Prophetinquired about it, she told him the truth.In fact the Jews in Madina knew well that the expected prophet would appearfirst in Baca then he would migrate to Madina. For further information pleasevisit:http://www.knowmuhammad.org/prophet-Muhammad-In-Ancient-Holy-BooksIn fact the biography pf the prophet Muhammad tells us that the prophetMuhammad was recognized or identified as the expected prophet the momenthe was born.
