We hear all the time from self-proclaimed moderates that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam, and terrorists are simply misunderstanding the Quran. However, to undeniably clear up confusion once and for all, one must simply look at what the Islamic Prophet Muhammad did during his lifetime to see exactly how Muslims are meant to behave.
No one, not “moderate” Muslims, liberal apologists, or even imams have the right to define what it means to be a “good” Muslim. Good is in the eye of the beholder, and the beholder is Allah, as regurgitated by Muhammad.
In the Quran, Allah indisputably defines that a Muslim is one who “fights with their wealth and lives against the unbelievers.” He adds that those who peacefully “sit at home” and do not fight are not equal to his jihadists, and they will receive no reward in the afterlife.
But what does it mean? Are the mujahideen of ISIS, al-Qaeda, and Boko Haram practicing true Islam, or are the seemingly violent verses meant to be taken metaphorically? To find out, we must look at how Muhammad, the only being Allah commanded followers to emulate, walked out is faith.
If anyone has any doubt of these claims, links with references are provided in each section.
There are countless verses in the Quran that justify the rape not only of Muslims own wives, but of captive women who were already married, as well as children of non-Muslims. Looking at Muhammad, we see this practice in full effect.
According to the Hadith, 57-year-old Muhammad ordered the death of 17-year-old Saffiya’s husband, father, and brother, before taking her to his tent where he raped her. She was considered the “booty of war” Allah promised.
Another passage tells of Muhammad’s rape of Rayhana, a married Jewess of the Banu Qurayza tribe. After slaughtering all the men and some of the children, Muhammad saw how beautiful Rayhana was, and ordered his jihadists to bring her to his tent. Immediately after beheading her husband and family, he raped her.
Muhammad violated a peace treaty he had with the Jewish Banu Qurayza tribe. After ambushing the peaceful Jews, Muhammad ordered the beheading of all the men, young boys, and at least one woman. Muhammad is said to have personally participated, beheading some of the 500-900 men and children in a large trench by his own sword. The women and living children were taken as sex slaves for Muhammad and his men.
Although Rayhana and Saffiya were taken by force as Muhammad’s sex slaves, the perverted prophet had many others who he traded and presented as gifts. When his men approached him with guilt about getting their captives pregnant, Muhammad answered, “It doesn’t matter if you do it or not, for every soul that is to be born will be born.”
The Quran also reminds Muslim men that sex slavery is justified:
“The believers must win through, those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or those whom their right hands possess, for they are free from blame.” (Qur’an 23:1-6)
Aside from sex slaves, Muhammad owned and traded a number of his slaves, including black Africans, whom he insulted with racial slurs. Even though he had the power to be a powerful abolitionist, his words and actions justify the world’s largest religious slave market to this day.
In one passage, Muhammad chastises a Muslim woman for freeing her slave girl, saying that she “would have gotten more reward if you had given the slave girl to one of your maternal uncles.” We can only speculate that he meant for sex rather than manual labor.
The Hadith even lists all of Muhammad’s slaves’ names, both male and female.
To this day, over 14 million blacks remain slaves to Muslim masters emulating their prophet. Ironically, they are also the largest ethnic group converting to Islam.
Without any proof, Muhammad claimed that Allah had given Aisha, the 6-year-old daughter of his companion, to him for marriage in a dream. After coercing the father, Muhammad married the little girl, but because she was very ill, he waited until she was 9 to have sex with her. Still, this didn’t stop him from molesting her before her 9th birthday. From her own words, the “mother of the believers” confirms her own rape:
“Narrated Aisha that the prophet wrote the marriage contract with her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old. Hisham said: ‘I have been informed that Aisha remained with the prophet for nine years (i.e. till his death).'” (Bukhari 7.65)
The Hadith reveals prophet hated homosexuals, and made it known that they should die in gruesome ways. Just as ISIS has modeled, Muhammad ordered homosexuals to be stoned to death, and both the “doer and receiver” are to be killed.
Muhammad’s successor, Abu Bakr, ordered that gays should be burned to death. Muhammad’s first cousin, Ibn Abbas, preferred that “the sodomite should be thrown from the highest building in the town and then stoned.” We now see that ISIS didn’t come up with these ideas on its own, but took them directly from the prophet and his companions.
Muhammad had a short temper, especially when it came to those insulting him. The tyrannical prophet ordered men, women, and even children to death for making fun of him, disrespecting him, and protesting against his reign of terror.
He had an affinity for poets in particular, ordering the deaths of 13 poets and song writers, which included at least 7 women and children, among countless others.
The peaceful Muslims who shriek about ISIS violating Islam are actually the hypocrites who Allah warned would enter hell for being friends with Christians and Jews. They are considered by Allah and Muhammad to be the real extremists and radicals, misunderstanding jihad and refusing to make war with infidels.
However, hypocrisy is really a useful tactic by which the devout Muslims may conquer and islamize the world. Although the jihadists are most closely obeying the commands which Muhammad modeled, both are extremely dangerous, and bringing about a tyrannical political and religious regime.
