Mohammad - the original KFC Colonel?

Volume 7, Book 65, Number 366:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
The Prophet said, 'When you eat, do not wipe your hands till you have licked it, or had it licked by somebody else."

1) Was the food Mohammad ate finger licking good?
2) Was Mohammad an expert in hygiene?
a) Did Mohammad want to ensure that food stains would not be wiped on his garments the same way his semen stains were smeared on his clothing?
b) Why didn't Mohammad also order the cleaning of food the same way he would clean himself after Janaba (Sexual discharge) by washing his hands and then by putting two fingers through his hair?
i) Better yet, why didn't Mohammad order that the semen be licked the same way food was cleaned?

3) Was Mohammad encouraging other people to lick his hands the way a dog licks its owners hands?
a) Or was Mohammad, being the sexual libertine that we all know and worship; the prophet of love; foreseeing the days when lovers would dip each others fingers in a sensual dessert, and lick each others fingers with amorous glows? Afterall, it is "Allah Almighty, who causes hearts to turn!" Tabari VIII:1 (Reference was when Mohammad saw his adopted son's wife, fell in love with her, and forced his adopted son to divorce her)

Payment is a sign of legality, while non-payment is a sign of illegality

Volume 3, Book 34, Number 316:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
Once the Prophet got his blood out (medically) and paid that person who had done it. If it had been illegal, the Prophet would not have paid him.

1) Who would have done something illegal if Mohammad did not pay the person: Mohammad. that person, or both?
2) Are there instances where Mohammad enjoyed the fruits of someone else's labour, and then did not pay because he said it is illegal?
3) If something was illegal, why would Mohammad even go to that merchant/seller, and expolit them knowing full well he would not pay them?

Allah a sadist?

Volume 7, Book 70, Number 548:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "If Allah wants to do good to somebody, He afflicts him with trials."

1) Which divine being would consider doing good to somebody by affliciting them with trials?
2) Wouldn't the devil be the one who wants to cause human beings misery and hardship?
3) Wouldn't a passionate and loving God not go out of its way to PERSONALLY afflict them with trials?
4) What good comes out of personally overseeing harm to others?
5) Will Allah be doing a good thing to those who are in the hell fire when he performs one of his many sadistic acts to the "unbelievers"?

004.056 YUSUFALI: Those who reject our Signs, We shall soon cast into the Fire: as often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for fresh skins, that they may taste the penalty: for Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.

6) If Allah is doing a good thing to a person by afflicting them with trials, wouldnt it be better to be an unbeliever so that Allah may afflict you his sadistic acts (trials) which are in fact good for you?

7) Once again, does Bukhari try to glint who Allah truly is?

Wives = Sex toys for husbands

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 460:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "If a husband calls his wife to his bed (i.e. to have sexual relation) and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning."

Well... this hadith was probably not included to make Mohammad look like a fool, but more of a bullying tactic for husbands to have sex with their wives any time they wanted...

In Islam, women do NOT have the choice.

The question that needs to be answered is; did any of Mohammad's wives ever turn him down?

A mother prays that her son gets a prostitute?

Volume 2, Book 22, Number 297m:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "A woman called her son while he was in his hermitage and said, 'O Juraij' He said, 'O Allah, my mother (is calling me) and (I am offering) my prayer (what shall I do)?' She again said, 'O Juraij!' He said again, 'O Allah ! My mother (is calling me) and (I am offering) my prayer (what shall I do)?' She again said, 'O Juraij' He again said, 'O Allah! My mother (is calling me) and (I am offering) my prayer. (What shall I do?)' She said, 'O Allah! Do not let Juraij die till he sees the faces of prostitutes.' A shepherdess used to come by his hermitage for grazing her sheep and she gave birth to a child. She was asked whose child that was, and she replied that it was from Juraij and that he had come out from his hermitage. Juraij said, 'Where is that woman who claims that her child is from me?' (When she was brought to him along with the child), Juraij asked the child, 'O Babus, who is your father?' The child replied, 'The shepherd.' " (See Hadith No 662. Vol 3; No 645. Vol 4)

1) Why would any mother want her son to have sexual relations with prostitutes?
a) Wouldn't a mother rather her son meet a woman he could raise a family with?
b) Did this hadith implicitly state that a woman you can bring to your mom is a prostitute?

2) Did Juraij refuse the company of people in order to justify Mohammad's own desires of being alone?

Ishaq:105 "Aisha said that when Allah desired to honor Muhammad, the first sign of prophethood was a vision in brightness of day shown to him in his sleep. He liked nothing better than to be alone. When he left Mecca and there was no house in sight, every stone and tree that passed by said, 'Peace be unto you, Allah's Apostle.' Muhammad would turn around and see naught but trees and stones. He stayed seeing and hearing things as long as it pleased Allah. Then Gabriel came to him with the gift of Allah's grace while he was on Hira in the month of Ramadhan. The Apostle would pray in seclusion on Hira every year for a month to practice Tahannuth as was the custom of the Quraysh in the heathen days. [In other words, Muhammad was a heathen and the Islamic Pillar requiring Ramadhan fasting was pagan.] Tahannuth is religious devotion [to pagan idols]. After praying in seclusion, he would walk around the Ka'aba seven times.

3) Juraij came out of his hermitage because he was falsely accused.
a) Couldn't the sheppardess have chosen a better person to claim fatherhood?

4) How did O'Babus purposely go against the word of his mother?
a) Were Juraij's questions so powerful that he could convince this child to contradict his mom?

5) Who was Juraij?
a) Where did Mohammad learn of him?
b) Where was he mentioned in the Torah?

A prophet killed ants in genocidal rage

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 536:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "Once while a prophet amongst the prophets was taking a rest underneath a tree, an ant bit him. He, therefore, ordered that his luggage be taken away from underneath that tree and then ordered that the dwelling place of the ants should be set on fire. Allah sent him a revelation:-- "Wouldn't it have been sufficient to burn a single ant? (that bit you): (See Page 162, chapter No. 153).

1) Why did this prophet decide to kill the ants in genocidal rage?
a) Who was this prophet?
b) Where did Mohammad learn of this story as it is not mentioned anywhere in the Jewish Torah
i) If this Mohammad's Allah was the same God as the Jews, and the Jews faithfully kept all their writings, wouldn't one conclude that the Jewish Torah and Mohammad's stories be identical?
ii) Why is the Jewish Torah discouraged from being read?
iii) Is it to ensure that Muslims dont see how ridiculous Mohammad's stories are compared to other religious texts preceding his supposed divine revelation (which he received while sleeping with Aisha?

2) Did this prophet expect the ants to recognize him as a prophet the same way ants recognized King Soloman, according to Mohammad's quran?

Quran: 027.018 YUSUFALI:
At length, when they came to a (lowly) valley of ants, one of the ants said: "O ye ants, get into your habitations, lest Solomon and his hosts crush you (under foot) without knowing it."
(*** No story like this exists in the Jewish Torah - Mohammad's source for the story regarding ants and King Soloman is very suspect***)

3) This prophet's actions were so cruel that he was even questioned by Allah:
a) Was this story used as a justification to allow Mohammad to kill the Qurayza Jews in genocidal rage?

Lying on your back and placing one foot on the other is forbidden

Sahih Muslim: Book 024, Number 5238:
Jalbir b. Abdullah reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: None of you should lie on his back and place one of his feet upon the other.

1) Why did Mohammad disallow placing one foot upon the other when one lies down?
2) What moral purpose exists for how one positions themselves when relaxing?
3) Did Mohammad forbid this form of relaxation to his followers because he had an axe to grind with a certain Muslim who relaxed this way?
4) Did he do this to prevent people from relaxing in order so that those people might be agitated enough to continue in their pursuits of Jihad?
5) Why would Allah care how you position yourself when lying on your back?
6) Did Sahih Muslim include this to show the absurdities detailing minutia for some of Mohammad's rules?

Dr. Mohammad? Part II

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 234:
Narrated Abu Qilaba:

Anas said, "Some people of 'Ukl or 'Uraina tribe came to Medina and its climate did not suit them. So the Prophet ordered them to go to the herd of (Milch) camels and to drink their milk and urine (as a medicine). So they went as directed and after they became healthy, they killed the shepherd of the Prophet and drove away all the camels. The news reached the Prophet early in the morning and he sent (men) in their pursuit and they were captured and brought at noon. He then ordered to cut their hands and feet (and it was done), and their eyes were branded with heated pieces of iron, They were put in 'Al-Harra' and when they asked for water, no water was given to them." Abu Qilaba said, "Those people committed theft and murder, became infidels after embracing Islam and fought against Allah and His Apostle ."

Also at: Volume 2, Book 24, Number 577; Volume 4, Book 52, Number 261; Volume 5, Book 59, Number 505; Volume 7, Book 71, Number 590; Volume 8, Book 82, Number 794; Volume 9, Book 83, Number 37

Once these hadiths came to light, "Arabia's Camel Urine Farmers" and the "National Camel Urine Board of Arabia" were formed to advertise the healing powers of camel urine:

So far, sales have not been impressive. Arabia's Camel Urine Farmers are looking for the endorsement of several key imams before they expect a demand spike for this future health frenzy.

Dr. Mohammad?

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 537:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said "If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease."
1) Where did Mohammad learn about diseases?
2) Did Mohammad learn this at the Kabba?
3) If you dip the fly in the drink, how will you know that the wing with the cure will save you as opposed to the wing with the disease?
4) If a fly falls on your food, should you smear your food with both wings?
5) Is Mohammad a licensed practitioner?

Allah's apostle condones lying?

Volume 3, Book 49, Number 857:
Narrated Um Kulthum bint Uqba:
That she heard Allah's Apostle saying, "He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar."

What is a lie:

I) a lie = false information
II) inventing information (whether goood or bad) = false information
III) therefore: a lie = false information = inventing information (whether goood or bad)

What is a liar:

I) Person telling lies

Therefore; a person inventing good information to make peace between people is a liar.

Although Mohammad's intentions in this situation seem good, there are many problems with this warped sense of morality:
1) Wouldnt peace not last, and actually aggravate the conflict once the parties knew they were lied to?
2) Does Mohammad's example apply to any situation in order to ensure peace?
a) i.e. If you cheat on your wife, and know she will be upset, would it be better to lie to her that you did not cheat on her so she will not be upset?
b) Would it be ok for Egyptian Muslims to lie to Palestinian Muslims that Egyptians will provide the Palestinians with food aid so Palestinians would not riot? (And then exile the Palestinians back to where they came from once the situation has been resolved)?
c) Is it ok for Persian Muslims to lie to Bahrain and Qatar that they have no desire on expanding their country when they send hundreds of thousands of Persian migrants to those countries to effectively make the population of Persian Gulf countries Persians?
3) Does Mohammad believe that two sides of a conflict will easily be swayed by lies of individuals?
4) Does Bukhari include this verse to show how short-sighted Mohammad was regarding conflict resolution?

The Quran - Practicing sex while the quran was being revealed?

Volume 7, Book 62, Number 136:
Narrated Jabir:
We used to practice coitus interrupt us while the Quran was being revealed. Jabir added: We used to practice coitus interrupt us during the lifetime of Allah's Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed.

1) Why is the quran holy if people practiced having sex while it was being delivered?
2) Shouldnt this mean that all muslims (men and women) also practice having sex while the quran is being revealed?
3) Does Bukhari purposely put this hadith in here to show that any izznat by Jabir cannot be trusted?
a) In other words, wouldn't it be better to find religious advice from someone who is not a sexual libertine?
4) If the koran was compiled after Mohammad's death, and recited while people were practicing having sex, then wouldnt the authenticity of the quran come into question, as people's minds would be more on sex as opposed to remembering quran surahs?

How to break a promise to a Muslim?

Volume 3, Book 36, Number 475:
Narrated Khabbab:
I was a blacksmith and did some work for Al-'As bin Wail. When he owed me some money for my work, I went to him to ask for that amount. He said, "I will not pay you unless you disbelieve in Muhammad." I said, "By Allah! I will never do that till you die and be resurrected." He said, "Will I be dead and then resurrected after my death?" I said, "Yes." He said, "There I will have property and offspring and then I will pay you your due." Then Allah revealed. 'Have you seen him who disbelieved in Our signs, and yet says: I will be given property and offspring?' (19.77)

1) Does Bukhari include this passage to illustrate how easily muslims can get tricked?

2) Since Muslims believe that the after life is a physical existence (i.e. 72 virgins, rivers of wine, boys that are fresh as pearls), does Al-'As bin Wail make a valid point that the physical resurrection will allow people to clear debts would muslims?
a) If muslims argue that heaven is spiritual as opposed to physical, wouldnt it mean Mohammad lied about all the physical delights one would derive in heaven?

Allah revealed the following verse in the middle of a monologue about people not believing in Mohammad getting tortured:


019.076 YUSUFALI: "And Allah doth advance in guidance those who seek guidance: and the things that endure, Good Deeds, are best in the sight of thy Lord, as rewards, and best in respect of (their) eventual return."
019.077 YUSUFALI: Hast thou then seen the (sort of) man who rejects Our Signs, yet says: "I shall certainly be given wealth and children?"
019.078 YUSUFALI: Has he penetrated to the Unseen, or has he taken a contract with (Allah) Most Gracious?
019.079 YUSUFALI: Nay! We shall record what he says, and We shall add and add to his punishment.
019.080 YUSUFALI: To Us shall return all that he talks of and he shall appear before Us bare and alone.
019.081 YUSUFALI: And they have taken (for worship) gods other than Allah, to give them power and glory!

1) Does the fact that Allah was inspired by Al-'As bin Wail to include a Koran surah mean that Allah was reactionary and thus, not all knowing?
2) Why does the above highlighted surah talk about not believing in Allah when the Al-'As bin Wail only said that one should not believe in Mohammad?
a) Do the surah's try to show that Allah is Mohammad?
b) Or does Bukhari try to show that Allah is Mohammad's alternate personality, as Mohammad clearly equates that not believing in Mohammad is the same as not believing in Allah (whence, Islam results from Mohammad's fertile imagination)?
