Addendum (for part 4)
No sooner had I finished this series I discovered a number of other cases of Muhammad’s violations of the Qur’an. Though it is too late to include all of them now, I must narrate the following violation:
The Qur’an allows a Muslim man to accumulate up to four wives at any time (Qur’an: 4:3). It is an inalienable right that Allah has prescribed to all Muslim men in the world. No power on earth could take away this right. None of the existing wives or the fathers-in-law have the power to object a Muslim man to indulge in this ritual of polygamy.
However, it is amazing that when Muhammad’s son-in-law, Ali, wanted to have a second wife, in addition to his first wife Fatima, Muhammad’s daughter, Muhammad was furious. Muhammad vehemently objected to this proposal insisting if Ali was really serious in this additional wife, he must first divorce Fatima. Eventually, Ali had to refrain from gathering additional wives as long as Muhammad and Fatima were alive.
Curiously, after the death of Muhammad and Fatima, Ali diligently followed the Qur’an (4:3) by marrying many women.
Here are a few Sahih ahadith that exposes Muhammad’s hypocrisy with respect to the Qur’anic rules. Due to the shortage of space, I am only quoting the main message. Readers should refer to the appropriate references to read the complete ahadith
Ali was married to Fatima, Muhammad’s daughter. When Banu Hisham bin Al Mughira proposed that Ali should take a second, Muhammad objected to that proposal. Muhammad said he would not allow Ali to marry another woman unless Ali divorced Fatima. It was because whatever displeased Fatima also displeased Muhammad. Whatever harmed Fatima also harmed Muhammad. (Jami’ At-Tirmidhi vol.6.number 3867)
Fatima was a part of Muhammad. What harmed Fatima also harmed Muhammad. What was uncomfortable to Fatima was also uncomfortable to Muhammad. That was why Muhammad had objected Ali, who was married to Fatima, to marry the daughter of Abu Jahl…(ibid 6.3869)
Muhammad prevented the marriage of Ali with the daughter of Abu Jahl as Ali’s second wife as long he did not divorce Fatima (that is Ali must divorce Fatima to acquire another wife.). Muhammad sought the alibi that the daughter of Allah’s Apostle (Fatima) and the daughter the enemy of Allah (the daughter of Abu Jahl) could never get together…(Sahih Bukhari 4.53.342)
Muhammad hated the idea that Ali would take another wife, in Abu Jahl’s daughter without divorcing Fatima (even though Muhammad allowed four wives for a Muslim, and, he himself had up to 14 wives) claiming that the daughter of apostle of Allah and the daughter of the enemy of Allah cannot be the wives of same man (i.e., Ali)…(Sahih Bukhari, 5.57.76)
Sorry for this slip up.
