“Indeed, a very strange god and prophet”
Let us (…) discuss how the challenge of Allah, the Al-mighty, was countered by his own abrogated verses. There are strong evidences in Sahih Bukhari and Tirmizi that Allah could not honor his own words; because Allah had to replace his immutable, divine, and most wise verses with other verses, or in many cases canceled them.
My question is: “Why Allah, the wisest creator, needed to supersede his own verses? Why did he forget the previous verses?” Muslims’ answer to this question is: “Because circumstances were changing through the period of revelations. It was necessary for a few verses to be abrogated, and a few to be replaced.” To counter, the next question I have is: “Why is it that those circumstances changed for only 23 years, in the life span of Muhammad, after he had claimed to be the prophet?” Circumstances always change.
Don’t Muslims think that circumstances also changed after 632 AD, till 2009, and will continue to change in the future? What shall we do now? Who will now abrogate such verses that clash with the present and will in the future? When we raise such questions the response from the Muslims is complete silence. Another solid evidence by Muslim historians bear witness that the challenge of Allah was also turned down by his own devout follower Uthman bin Affan. Islamic history tells us that to prevent the misconceptions, variations and errors propagated by various groups of Muslims, Uthman, the third Caliph of Islam, burned the original text of the Holy Qur’an, keeping only the compilation ordered by him. Islamic historians write that, because of the uniformity in eloquence in rhetoric in Arabic among the tribes in
It is also very interesting that when Uthman was elected as the caliph of Islam, he was about 70 or 72 years old. History shows us that Uthman had close relatives who belonged to Banu Umayya. This aged man was very easy to be tricked and manipulated. On the other hand, Amir Muaweeya, the son of Abu Suffian, was the governor of
The Sahabas (companions of Muhammad) also played an important role to preserve the Qur’an. Muslims claim that, many Sahabas, with their incredible memory, retained the Qur’an in their hearts: the divine verses were untouchable, and protected from the attack of infidels and outsiders. Most parts of the Qur’an, according to Muslims, were revealed in
Islamic history tells us about Abdullah bin Sa’d, one of the scribes of Muhammad from
The character of the Holy Prophet of Islam and his deeds
Muslims present the character of Muhammad as exemplary. He is considered the most honest, pious, humble, incorruptible, righteous, balanced, genius, and Rehmat ulil Alimeen (a mercy for whole Universe)…and so on-it is an endless list.
Let us discuss a few outstanding characters and deeds of Muhammad sourced from impeccable Islamic sources, such as Ahadith (Muhammad’s traditions) and Sira (Muhammad’s biography).
(1) Muhammad, Aisha and their dating
Muhammad’s first wife was Khadija, an influential and rich trader of
Today, this kind of marriage with forty to or fifty years of age difference is considered highly contemptible and condemnable, especially in Western countries. Even in Islamic Republic of Pakistan, parents would not give their six or nine-year-old daughters in the hands of a fifty plus-year-old man. This tradition may still exist partially in some backward remote villages, but to the vast majority of Pakistanis this custom is not acceptable. Muslims defend by saying that this practice was followed in the primitive age in
(2) Muhammad seduced by his daughter-in-law
Zainab was also one of the wives of Muhammad .She was formerly married to Zaid bin Harith (adopted son of Muhammad). This relation tells us that Zainab was the daughter-in-law of Muhammad before the latter married her. The story goes that one day Muhammad tried to visit his son Zaid at his home. Zaid was not at home but Muhammad did not fail to catch a glimpse of a scantily dressed Zainab. .According to Tabari and Ibn Sa’d, the posture of a half naked Zainab highly amused or aroused Muhammad, so much so, that he started praising his Lord and mumbled some words that Allah, aware of all his intentions, could understand. Consequently, Zaid bin Harith divorced his wife Zainab ,just to pave way for Muhammad to fulfill his lust for her. On this occasion Allah revealed verse 33:37. It is clear from this verse that the companions of Muhammad in
The marriage between Zaid and Zainab was arranged by Muhammad himself. How come, a marriage that is convened by prophet himself was dissolved? Why Muhammad, the foreteller of the advent of Imam Mehdi and the day of judgment, did not perceive the conclusion of that marriage in the first place? Where was Allah, the knower of the past and future, who would prevent marriage between Zaid and Zainab? I know Muslims will claim that Muhammad knew only what Allah told him. This is an absurd claim; it further supports my reason to disdain Islam.

(3) Maria the Copt, sweetheart and sex slave of Muhammad
Maria, a Coptic Christian slave-girl, was another sweet heart of Muhammad. She became the sex-slave of the Prophet of Islam. According to Islamic sources, she was a very attractive young girl and she seduced Muhammad more than any of his wives. One day, Muhammad tried to send Hafsa (one of his wives) away, by telling that her father (Umar) wanted to see her. In the mean time, when Hafsa was out, Muhammad and Maria were alone in the house. This opportunity was a golden chance for Prophet of Islam to make his desire fulfilled without any disturbance. Allah was also happy, that his beloved prophet had some entertainment to ease him of his burden of the task entrusted to him for the benefit of mankind. Allah, the most wise and knower of the past and future, revealed verses to his beloved prophet to protect him and to confront the allegations from his wives.
Alone with Maria, in the house of Hafsa, the Prophet of Islam started to give glad tidings to Maria that if she made the Prophet happier, Allah would make her happy too, and she will never be miserable in her life and hereafter. As Maria heard this, she smiled and looked at the Prophet. This gesture of the former filled Muhammad’s heart and mind with love, passion and desire for her.
Hafsa retuned, annoyed that Muhammad had told her a lie. Unnoticed by Muhammad, she entered her room and discovered a lustful Prophet of Islam deeply engaged in sex with Maria. Hafsa saw her husband in bed with a slave-girl in such a position that she, as well as the entire Muslim Ummah could ever imagine. Muhammad became scared when Hafsa shouted at the Prophet who was enjoying a young girl. He did not expect Hafsa to return so soon. While the proud young and beautiful Maria was giggling on this scene, argument started between Muhammad and Hafsa. Muhammad tried his best to assuage Hafsa and keep her mouth shut. But Hafsa, as courageous and petulant as her father (Umar), rebuked Muhammad for his evil deed. Soon, Hafsa shared this story with Aisha, and they tried to tease the prophet of Islam by saying that his mouth stank of home-made alcoholic drink. Muslims try to defend Muhammad by claiming it was the smell of honey as Muhammad loved honey. Accordingly, after this affair, Muhammad never drank honey.
We should note that honey does not stink. It was, perhaps, the ‘honey’ that flowed between Maria’s legs that might had caused Muhammad’s mouth to stink.

(4) Muhammad’s followers jubilation on the massacre of Banu Quraiza tribe
The plunder of Khyber and the massacre of Banu Quraiza (a Jewish tribe of Medina) is another glorious feature of Islam. Soon after the battle of the Trench in 627AD, when the Muslims took control of
Islamic history tells us that shortly after migrating to
As stated before, soon after the battle of the Trench, Muhammad pursued the Banu Quraiza Jews, killed their men, captivated their women and children, and divided their wealth and property among the Muslims. My question is:”Why were all men and adult boys of Banu Quraiza massacred in a dreadful way? Was it because the Jews did not aid Muhammad in the battle of the Trench? Was it because they conspired with the Quraish against the prophet of Islam?” If these reasons are valid, why did not Muhammad massacre all men of the Quraish on the day of conquest of
(5) Muhammad’s confusion on facing the qiblas
Muslims claim that Kaaba (Muslim’s holy shrine in
We may ask: Why qiblas (facing towards shrine) were switched to Masjid-e-Aqsa and back to Kaaba if it was predestined that Abraham was the builder of Kaaba? This incidence proves that Muhammad and the Quraish never knew that Kaaba was ever built by Abraham. This is a big sin by Muhammad, because he turned his face from the shrine whose builder was Abraham. Today’s Muslims should realize it that Kaaba once was an old sanctuary for idols, and the idolaters had built Kaaba.
(6) Muhammad violated the treaty of Hudabya
Apparently, the treaty of Hudaybya was a peace treaty between the Quraish of
