The details of all his (Muhammad's) criminal onslaughts in the form of battles and assassinations are chronicled in this article in a chronological manner. One should note that every time this so called “Apostle of Peace” committed one of his criminal onslaughts, he always justified the crimes by quickly claiming a “divine revelation” which conveniently removed the blame from his bloodied hands. These convenient Suras are detailed immediately below the description of the incident.
1) Massacre of unarmed merchants during sacred month Date: Late January(Rejeb), 623 A.D. Place: Nakhla Victims: 4 Merchants from Quraysh tribe of Mecca, the Tribe to which Muhammad himself belonged. Four UNARMED merchants were travelling to Mecca to sell their goods consisting of raisins, honey and animal skins. It was the holy month of Rejeb which was considered sacred for trade in Arabia. It was a point of honor that any form of warfare or violence was strictly forbidden in this month. Muhammad's gang attacked the helpless men from behind and stabbed two of them to death. They plundered all the goods as booty and Muhammad got one fifths of the share. This shows the utter lack of morals or scruples on Muhammad's part. The Prophet of Islam did not possess a shred of pity or kindness, or the slightest sense of justice. He cold-bloodily murdered two innocent people who had never done him any harm and did not even know him! All this was done in a month that the Prophet himself declared was a sacred month in which no warfare should take place. Muhammad was obviously motivated by nothing but hatred and greed. Conveniently divine revelations came down from Allah that absolved him of all the guilt.
“Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, you knew not.” Al-Baqarah (Koran 2:216)
Here Muhammad is completely removing all blame from himself, for having started the fighting. The most insidious and devilish implication of this verse is that Allah is completely justifying Muhammad's murder of the innocent Meccans. Over and above this Muhammad is conveniently implying that warfare is hateful to him, but he participated in it because it was ordained by Allah! What sacrifices the “Apostle of Peace” had to make! (Koran, al-Baqarah 2:217]
“They question you (O Muhammad) with regard to warfare in the sacred month. Say: Warfare therein is a great transgression but to turn men from the way of Allah and to disbelieve in Him and the inviolable place of worship and to expel its people thence is a greater transgression, for persecution is worse than killing” Here Allah is clearly saying that to kill or create warfare in the sacred month of Rejeb is a very grave offence, but to justify his own violation of Allah's rules, Muhammad comes up with the idea that since the people killed were unbelievers, it was perfectly okay! The reason given for the horrific murder of the innocent Meccans, is the fact that they did not believe in Muhammad's version of God. How much more tolerant and kind could the “Great Prophet” be!
2) Slaughter of Meccans who came to defend their caravans Date: March (Ramadan) 17, 623 A.D Place: The well of Badr Victims: 70 merchants from Quraysh Tribe of Mecca, The Quraysh army which came to defend them.
The merchandise being carried by this caravan was worth more than 50,000 Gold Dinars. Muhammad ganged up all the criminals of Medina and set out to raid the caravan with 300 men. The Meccans got word of the raid and sent out an army to protect the caravan. Throughout the entire battle Muhammad cowered in a hut which his men made for him.
There he cried and prayed with feverish anxiety. At one point he came out of the hut and threw pebbles in the enemy's direction, screaming “Let evil look on your faces!” and “By him who holds my soul in his hands, anyone who fights for me today will go to paradise!” They killed over two hundred and took seventy prisoners. All seventy of the prisoners were ransomed, and any prisoner who did not fetch a ransom had his head chopped off.
Muhammad was gratified at the sight of his murdered victims. After the battle, he sent his followers to look for the corpse of Abu Jahal, one of the Meccans who had criticized him openly. When his corpse was found, they cut off the head and threw it down at Muhammad's feet. The “Apostle of peace” cried out in delirious joy, “Rejoice! Here lies the head of the enemy of Allah! Praise Allah, for there is no other but he!” The Prophet then ordered a great pit to be dug for the bodies of the innocents to be dumped. The Muslims then proceeded to hack the corpses limbs into pieces. As the bloodied mass of bodies was being thrown into the pit, a feverishly excited Muhammad shrieked “ O People of the Pit, have you found that what Allah threatened is true now? For I have found that what my Lord promised was true! Rejoice All Muslims! ” One of the prisoners taken was the defiant Al Nadr Ibn al Harith, who had earlier taken Muhammad's challenge of telling better stories than him. Muhammad ordered Ali to strike off Nadr's head in his presence, so he could watch and exult in the pleasure of beheading the man who had insulted him. Another prisoner Uqba ibn Abi Muait was decapitated in front of the Prophet. Before being killed the prisoner cried out pitifully “O Prophet, who will look after my children if I should die?” The “Great Prophet of the Religion of Peace” coldly spat out “Hellfire”, as the blade came down and spattered his clothes with Uqba's blood.
This time Muhammad needed a revelation that would not only absolve him of all the guilt for murdering so many innocent people, but also give him the “divine” right to get a huge share of the plundered booty. Quite a few revelations magically appeared after the battle of Badr.
This Sura clearly exposes Islam to be a religion that not only encourages violence but actually makes it a sacred duty for Moslems to kill anyone who does not believe in the Muslims version of religion. Not only is the “All forgiving Allah” exhorting his followers to kill anyone who is not Muslim, but he is also saying that all non-Muslims are so stupid that they will be unable to defend themselves and therefore deserve death!
“It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he hath made slaughter in the land. You desire the lure of this world and Allah desires for you the hereafter and Allah is Mighty, Wise.. (Koran, al-Anfal 8:67)
Now enjoy what you have won as lawful and good and keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is forgiving, merciful.”
This verse is in reference to the prisoners that Muhammad held for ransom after the battle. Allah the “Merciful” is saying that they should all have been killed! In addition, Allah is conveniently commenting that whatever loot Muhammad has plundered is “lawful and good” because it was done in service to Allah. So murder, rape, plunder and destruction are all perfectly fine with Allah as long as they are done in the name of Islam! Muhammad is also insidiously making himself seem very kind for having spared the lives of the prisoners, when in fact he only let them live so he could get more money from the Ransom for them. In today's world this is called “Terrorism” of the worst kind.
3) Assasination of poets who criticised Muhammad's murderous ways Date: Late March-April, 623 A.D. Place: Medinah
Victims: Two of the most famous poets of Medinah, who had the courage to criticise the murderous actions of Muhammad and his gang.
After the battle of Badr, the people of Medinah were horrified that they had given refuge to such a blatant criminal and his followers in their city. Many began protesting the presence of such violent and murderous people in their city. In a free society like Pre-Islamic Arabia, the poets acted as society's conscience and were free to criticise, satirize and examine the actions of people. The two most famous poets of this kind were Abu 'Afak; an extremely old and respected poet and Asma bint Marwan; a young mother with the gift of superb verse.
Muhammad was enraged at their criticism. When he heard the verses composed by Asma Bint Marwan he was infuriated and screamed aloud, “Will no one rid me of this daughter of Marwan!” That very night a gang of Moslems set out to do the dirty deed. They broke into the poets' house. She was lying in her bedroom suckling her newborn child, while her other small children slept nearby. The Muslims tore the newborn infant off her breast and hacked it to pieces before her very eyes. They then made her watch the murder of all four of her children, before raping and then stabbing her repeatedly to death. After the murder when the Moslems went to inform the Prophet, he said “You have done a service to Allah and his Messenger, her life was not worth even two goats!”
A month later the distinguished and highly respected Abu Afak, who was over a hundred years old and renowned for his sense of fairness, was killed brutally in the same manner as he slept. Once again the Prophet had commented that morning “Who will avenge me on this scoundrel!”
This shows us exactly how much the tolerant and peace loving Prophet respected life. Moslems claim that Muhammad was extremely gentle and loved children. Indeed the horrifying way he had Asma Bint Marwan's five infants slaughtered certainly attests to this “loving” side of the Prophet.
4) The Siege of the Banu Qaynuqa Date: April, 623 A.D. Place: Medinah
Victims: The Jewish Tribe of Banu Qaynuqa
In order to get full control of Medinah, Muhammad needed to get rid of all his opponents. The strongest of these opponents was Abdallah Ibn Ubayy, a powerful chief who was allied with the Jewish Tribe of Banu Qaynuqa. This tribe was also the weakest, because they were made up of craftsmen, in particular goldsmiths. By attacking them, Muhammad knew he could plunder a huge amount of wealth and weaken Ibn Ubayy. Muhammad needed an excuse to attack them so he made a girl married to one of his followers, pretend that she had been teased by the Jews. The Moslems blockaded the fort of the Banu Qaynuqa for fifteen days until the starving Jews surrendered. Immediately, the Prophet was ready to kill them all, but Ibn Ubayy seized hold of Muhammad and protested. Muhammad's face became black with rage as he shouted “Let go of me”, but Ibn Ubayy was adamant and shouted back “No, by God, I will not let you go until you deal kindly with my allies. 400 men without armour and 300 with, who have always supported me against enemies. And you want to slay them all in one morning! By God, If I were in your place I would fear a reversal of fortune” At this threat, Muhammad turned pale, as he realized that all the people of Medinah were against him. He hit Ibn Ubayy on the face and ordered that the Jews be kicked out of their own homes. All their property was seized and looted, many of the prettiest women were taken as prisoners to become sex-slaves. Muhammad kept one-fifths of the enormous booty for himself.
This is the way he repayed the kindness of the Jews of Medina, who had given him shelter and a refuge, when Muhammad had run away from Mecca in fear.
The revelations in the Eighth Sura of the Koran were clearly in reference to the Banu Qaynuqa and anyone who opposed the Moslems.
(Koran, al-Anfal 8:55-57]
“Lo, the worst of beasts in Allah's sight are the ungrateful who will not believe.”
“Those of them with whom you made a treaty and then at every opportunity they break their treaty and they keep not duty to Allah, If you come on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, so that they may remember.”
Here Muhammad's acts of planned terrorism against the Jewish Tribe is justified by Allah, because according to the “Merciful” Allah, Non-Muslims are the worst of BEASTS! So it is perfectly all right to murder, rape, torture and pillage the non-believers! Not only that but Allah is advising Muhammad and the Muslims that when anyone protests against the injustices committed by Muslims the Muslims should make sure and deal with them with such violence, that it will strike fear among anyone who may think of supporting dissent. This proves that the Koran is nothing but a manual for enslaving humanity with terror. Not even the fascist armies of Hitler engineered such devilish ideas.
