Sublime Morality of Rape



After disposing of the three Jewish tribes of Medinah, the false prophet needed new conquests to bring in the revenues. He cast his eyes around and noticed a small tribe of Jews living some way from Medina. It is claimed that the Banu Mustaliq Jews had allied themselves with Banu Khuza’a Arabs and they intended to attack the false prophet.

Now, this is strange since the B. Mustaliq were hitherto peaceful farmers and not at all war-like. Secondly the Khuza’a were soon to be allies of the false prophet and no reason has been given for the switch in allegiance. Thirdly, the Mustaliq lived a long way from Medinah, and were obviously farmers. The Mustaliq had few fighting men and they seemed not very war-like as they surrounded after losing ten men. Now, it is very difficult to believe a community with so few and unsteadfast fighting men would even think of attacking a city with hundreds of bloodthirsty bandits. In all, the tribe consisted of only 100 families. How a tribe of 100 families would attack a city of over 1,500 seasoned bloodthirsty bandits stretches credulity.

Some say that on hearing the news of the alleged plot, the false prophet dispatched Buraidah bin Al-Haseeb Al-Aslami to have words with the chief of the Mustaliq, Al-Harith bin Dirar, on whether the report was true. Incredulously, Al-Harith told Buraidah, ‘yes, oh stranger, we are indeed going to attack Medinah’. Why Al-Harith should tell a stranger of his plans to attack Medinah has never been explained. Thus, justification for the attack on the Mustaliq was obtained.

The false prophet sent his army and they attacked the Mustaliq without warning at the well at Al-Muraisi. Ten Mustaliq fighting men were killed and the entire tribe fell into the hands of the Muslims. Much booty was captured that day: 2000 camels, 5000 sheep and 500 women. These were divided among the bandits, with 20% going to the false prophet.

Now, since the Mustaliq lived a long was from Medinah, some of the bandits, I mean Muslims, had suffered terribly from the long absence from their wives, so they asked permission from the false prophet to practice coitus interruptus on their female captives. The false prophet told them it was better that they didn’t do this, for if a soul is pre-ordained to exist it will exist. Meaning he sanctioned his followers raping their female captives.

Among these female captives was the beautiful daughter of the chief. Her name was Barrah. She had been married to Musafi’ bin Safwan, who was killed in battle. She was given to the bandit Thabit ibn Qays ibn Shammas. However, in order to save her tribe, she agreed to marry the false prophet, whereupon her tribe was freed on condition that they pay tribute to the false prophet. Her name was changed to Juwayriyyah. She was 20 years old and the false prophet was 58. Thus, the false prophet was able to demonstrate yet again his ‘sublime morality’, in attacking an unsuspecting peaceful people on false pretenses, sanctioning banditry, slavery and rape.


Mr. Rodrigo,

I already gave you some Muslim links that shows the whole picture/image of Muslim history and refute all allegations posed by anti-Islam sites from which you are actually borrowing their hypothesisies.

What you are saying is that great Indian leader Gandhi was actually a criminal, let alone an ordinary decent law-abiding human being, simply because what saw/see or have access to, is the perspective of occupied white British Empire of India of Gandhi’s time-period only or you are determined not to realise/see at any rate, the whole historical background of Gandhi’s sturggle.

And also you are saying that Nelson Mendala verily deserves life sentence because he was messing up with the White Britishers of Black South Africa and he was so naive that he did not even realise that White Britishers were Christians too.

God Bless You.

If someone doesn’t see/doesn’t want to see the proof or reasonable signs of your legal marraige with your wife, then he can easily accuse you of raping your wife or commiting a sin of pre-marital sex.

Oh BTW, since you are not a Catholic nor Jew…what is a RAPE in your eyes, *in the first palce * let alone sublime morality of rape?

Define “Rape” and convince people of all faith/non-faith, why they all other must accept your definition of “Rape”.

God bless you.



Only a Muslim would want to squirm out of a charge of rape by asking for a definition of it. Hey, Justice2006, do you really think the Jewesses of B. Mustaliq would voluntarily have sex with bandits who killed their men, stole their possessions and captured them? Where’s your sense of decency?

Ishaq:490/Tabari VIII:51 “When Allah’s Messenger heard about the Mustaliq gathering against him he set out and met them at one of their watering holes near the coast. The people advanced and fought fiercely. Allah caused the Mustaliq to fight and killed some of them. Allah gave the Apostle their children, women, and property as booty.”

Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 459:

Narrated Ibn Muhairiz: I entered the Mosque and saw Abu Said Al-Khudri and sat beside him and asked him about Al-Azl (i.e. coitus interruptus). Abu Said said, “We went out with Allah’s Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So when we intended to do coitus interrupt us, we said, 'How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allah’s Apostle who is present among us?” We asked (him) about it and he said, 'It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist."

Bukhari Volume 3, Book 46, Number 717:
Narrated Ibn Aun: I wrote a letter to Nafi and Nafi wrote in reply to my letter that the Prophet had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day. Nafi said that Ibn 'Umar had told him the above narration and that Ibn 'Umar was in that army.

Bukhari Volume 3, Book 46, Number 718:

Narrated Ibn Muhairiz: I saw Abu Said and asked him about coitus interruptus. Abu Said said, "We went with Allah’s Apostle, in the Ghazwa of Barli Al-Mustaliq and we captured some of the 'Arabs as captives, and the long separation from our wives was pressing us hard and we wanted to practice coitus interruptus. We asked Allah’s Apostle (whether it was permissible). He said, “It is better for you not to do so. No soul, (that which Allah has) destined to exist, up to the Day of Resurrection, but will definitely come, into existence.”

Bukhari Volume 9, Book 93, Number 506:

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured some females and intended to have sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they asked the Prophet about coitus interrupt us. The Prophet said, “It is better that you should not do it, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection.” Qaza’a said, “I heard Abu Sa’id saying that the Prophet said, 'No soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it.”

News reached the Prophet [pbuh] on Sha‘ban 2nd. to the effect that the chief of Bani Al-Mustaliq, Al-Harith bin Dirar had mobilised his men, along with some Arabs, to attack Madinah. Buraidah bin Al-Haseeb Al-Aslami was immediately despatched to verify the reports. He had some words with Abi Dirar, who confirmed his intention of war. He later sent a reconnoiterer to explore the positions of the Muslims but he was captured and killed. The Prophet [pbuh] summoned his men and ordered them to prepare for war. Before leaving, Zaid bin Haritha was mandated to see to the affairs of Madinah and dispose them. On hearing the advent of the Muslims, the disbelievers got frightened and the Arabs going with them defected and ran away to their lives. Abu Bakr was entrusted with the banner of the Emigrants, and that of the Helpers went to Sa‘d bin ‘Ubada. The two armies were stationed at a well called Muraisi. Arrow shooting went on for an hour, and then the Muslims rushed and engaged with the enemy in a battle that ended in full victory for the Muslims. Some men were killed, women and children of the disbelievers taken as captives, and a lot of booty fell to the lot of the Muslims. Only one Muslim was killed by mistake by a Helper. Amongst the captives was Juwairiyah, daughter of Al-Harith, chief of the disbelievers. The Prophet [pbuh] married her and, in compensation, the Muslims had to manumit a hundred others of the enemy prisoners who embraced Islam, and were then called the Prophet’s in-laws. [Za’d Al-Ma’ad 2/112,113; Ibn Hisham 2/289,290,294,295]

Do you think those Jewesses of B. Mustaliq voluntarily had sex with the bandits, I mean pious Muslims?
