I would urge Abu Adam to seriously investigate matters that concern him:
A) There is a lot of information already available (see below) as these arguments are not the new.

Response To Critics Claim ‘Allah Is A Deceiver’ – Quran 3:54

by  • JANUARY 24, 2015

The aim of this article is to answer the claims made by Christian missionaries that Allah is a ‘deceiver’, and a ‘liar’, dealing with the word used in 8:58, 7:99 And 3:54. The verse we are going to examine is the following:

Wamakaroo wamakara Allahu waAllahu khayru almakireena
“And the disbelievers planned, but Allah planned. And Allah is the best of planners.” – Quran 3:54

The historical background for the verse is that the Jews ‘planned’ evil in order to get Jesus arrested and crucified. And Allah in the verse says as they planned evil, so too Allah planned to thwart their wicked plan. Christian missionaries have an issue with the words used for both the Jews and Allah. They prefer to translate this way: Read more of this post

Re-Examining Banu Qurayzah Incident

Kaleef K. Karim & Aliyu Musa Misau


1. Introduction
2. Jewish tribes Made a Pact with Muslims
3. Events that Occurred Before Quraiza Incident
4. Prophet Muhammed Thwarted Their Plans
5. Banu Qurayza Siding, Waging War and Supplying Enemies with Weapons
6. Banu Qurayza were Left to Face the Music Alone
7. Who were Killed?
8. Were Children Killed?
9. Were All the Banu Qurayza Men Killed?
10. How Many Men of the Quraiza were Killed?
11. Anti-Semitism Claim
12. Conclusion

1. Introduction

The aim of this article is to examine an episode in the life time of Prophet Muhammed (p), concerning the Banu Qurayza warrior-men being killed. In this piece, we will respond to claims orientalists and other critics have made regarding this incident of the Arab Jewish tribe, Banu Qurayza.

For many reasons, it is obvious that this episode of the Banu Qurayza incident has had a lot of attention from non-Muslim scholars and apologists. But, we find a lot of their conclusions about it has either been lacking substance in showing the true picture of the event or deliberately misconstrued this historical event in showing Prophet Muhammed (p) in a bad light for allowing Sa’d ibn Mu’adh (a former Jew) to judge those that committed treachery.

2. Jewish tribes made a Pact with Muslims

The Muslims, fleeing persecution from Makkah, found Medina (Yathrib) a safe sanctuary to live in. Shortly after the persecuted Muslims arrived and welcomed in Medina. They made a pact with the Jewish tribe Banu Quraiza (and other tribes) that so it happens if an enemy were to attack Madinah, they would all protect each other and will not aid the enemy in any way. These facts are related to us in a number of early sources: Read more of this post

Commentary On The Hadith “War Is Deceit”

by  • JANUARY 24, 2015

The Prophet said, “War is deceit.” (Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 269)

The above Hadith is often cited by critics that it sanctions Muslims to lie in all circumstances in order to ‘deceive’ non-believers. This is a lie, nowhere in the Hadith does it say anything of such. However, in the passage, it speaks about war, that one is allowed to use deception in order to gain the upper hand. I don’t see anything wrong with that. Hence, war is always itself a form of deceit, no parties in war would alert or tell the other what they are going to do, and then proceed. No army would inform the enemy of their movements or when they’re going to advance. Imam Nawawi in his commentary on this Hadith states that this only allowed in ‘war’:

Commentary: ‘khad’ah’ means deception, i.e., employing a strategy which causes misunderstanding to the enemy, and one real’s intent does not become evident to them. This is permissible in Islam in the state of war. – (Riyad-us-Saliheen – chapter 234: Number 1352)

Answering Claims of Paul Ross No9. ” Thou shall Behead non-Muslims. Koran 8:12, 47:4″

A Non Muslim reader sent me a response regarding “REFUTING CLAIM SATAN INSPIRED PROPHET IN CAVE (not GABRIEL).” His name is Paul Ross.

His TITLE: The 20 Commandments of Muhammad, the founder of Islam.

There are 20 claims that he believes inspired by satan. All I can say that he doesn’t understand anything about Islam especially Al-Qur’an. Let’s discuss it one by one.

I SKIPPED CLAIM NO 2 (2. Thou shall have Sex Slaves and Work Slaves. Koran 4:3, 4:24, 5:89,33:50, 58:3, 70:30) since this kind of discussion demanding long explanation. I will discuss this for the last Insha Allah.

9. Thou shall Behead non-Muslims. Koran 8:12, 47:4

ANOTHER MISQUOTE FROM MR PAUL. This is another verse that is commonly quoted out of context, both historical context and the context of the verse itself in the Qur’an. Let us first examine the full verse:

Surah 8:12

[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, “I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.”

Surah 8:13

That is because they opposed Allah and His Messenger. And whoever opposes Allah and His Messenger – indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.

That is the context of the verse in the Qur’an. The historical context is that this verse was revealed at the Battle of Badr, a battle in which the pagans of Makkah traveled over 200 miles to destroy the Muslims of Madinah. The Pagans of Makkah had an army of about 1000 while the Muslims were only 300 followers. The Prophet Muhammad ((peace be upon him)) and his followers had suffered severe persecutions and torture for 13 years in the city of Makkah. Having fled from Makkah to the safety of Madinah, they found that they were once again threatened. Abul ‘Ala Maududi describes the situation that led to the Battle of Badr, beginning with the Muslim activity in Madinah:

Part 2 -Kyai Haji Saifuddin Ibrahim-Kebodohan dan Kebohongannya (fitnah tentang menyusui orang dewasa)

Original link: http://redaksipetang.blogspot.co.id/2016/07/alasan-kyai-haji-saifuddin-ibrahim-dari.html

Alasan MURTAD Kyai Haji Saifuddin Ibrahim ke 2.

==========================================================================Hadits dalam Bab ”Menyusui Orang Dewasa” memerintahkan isteri untuk menyusui pria-pria yang bukan suaminya. Saifuddin berkata, ”Adil Imam dari Mesir masuk Kristen karena perintah Muhammad tersebut.” Lebih lanjut  ia menulis fatwa ini berlaku di abad 21: ”Arab Saudi, Mesir, Maroko telah memfatwakan mewajibakan seorang ibu rumah tangga untuk menyusui para pria pembantu: tukang masak, kebun, sopir menaruh mereka sederat dengan suaminya.” [4]


Fitnah yang disebarkan para missionaris Kristen tentang “Menyusui orang dewasa” telah disebar luaskan untuk memperlemah iman para Muslim. Masalah ini adalah satu dari beberapa senjata yang mereka ajukan untuk selain membuktikan bahwa Nabi Muhammad SAW adalah nabi palsu, juga Islam adalah agama yang menggelikan.

Hal lain yang mengganjal  dari seorang mantan kiyai apa lagi GURU BESAR AL_QUR’AN, tidak menyebutkan hadith secara terang dengan perawi hadith dan buku dimana hal yang bersangkutan ditemukan. Setidaknya dia menggali dan membuat perbandingan dari beberapa hadith yang bersangkutan lalu berkomunikasi dengan para ustadz, ulama atau Muslim Scholars lainnya.



Apa itu MAHRAM:

Mahram (Arab: محرم) adalah semua orang yang haram untuk dinikahi selamanya karena sebab keturunan, persusuan dan pernikahan dalam syariat Islam.[1] Muslim Asia Tenggara sering salah dalam menggunakan istilah mahram ini dengan kata muhrim, sebenarnya kata muhrim memiliki arti yang lain. Dalam bahasa arab, kata muhrim (muhrimun) artinya orang yang berihram dalam ibadah haji sebelum bertahallul. Sedangkan kata mahram (mahramun) artinya orang-orang yang merupakan lawan jenis kita, namun haram (tidak boleh) kita nikahi sementara atau selamanya. Namun kita boleh bepergian dengannya, boleh berboncengan dengannya, boleh melihat wajahnya, boleh berjabat tangan, dan seterusnya.




Tudingan bahwa Nabi pernah menyuruh Sahlah binti Suhaili, istri Hudzaifah, yakni Salim, padahal ia sudah dewasa merupakan ajaran yg tercela. Dan Aisyah juga berpendapat bahwa hal ini bersifat umum (seperti yg disebutkan dalam Kitab Sunan Abu Dawud). Buktinya ia selalu menyuruh kemenakan-kemenaka perempuannya untuk menyusui siapapun yg yg ingin bertemu dengannya, apabila orang itu sudah dewasa maka harus disusui sebanyak lima kali.

kisahnya adalah sebagai berikut, Abu Hudzaifah pernah memiliki hamba sahaya yang bernama Salim, lalu Abu Hudzaifah memberi kehormatan kepada Salim dengan menjadikannya sebagai anak angkat. Kemudian setelah Salim tumbuh menjadi orang dewasa, ia mengalami kesulitan berinteraksi kepada dengan Sahlah, karena Salim bukanlah mahram Sahlah, mereka tidak bebas bertemu walaupun satu atap (Sahlah harus selalu mengenakan jilbabnyaI, dan Abu Hudzaifah (suami Sahla) pun merasa kurang senang dengan keadaan tersebut. Akhirnya Sahlah menghadap Nabi, dan meminta petunjuk dari beliau, lalu Nabi berkata:”Susuilah ia, maka kamu akan menjadi mahramnya.

Tentang pendapat Aisyah, bahwa hal itu bersifat umum dengan bukti bahwa ia selalu menyuruh kemenakan-kemenaka perempuannya untuk menyusui siapapun yg yg ingin bertemu dengannya, apabila orang itu sudah dewasa maka harus disusui sebanyak lima kali, jumhur ulama berpendapat bahwa kisah Salim itu hanya dikhususkan bagi dirinya saja, tidak untuk orang lain, dan kisah tersebut tidak dapat dijadikan dalil untuk memperbolehkan penyusuan orang dewasa.

Al-Hafizh Ibnu Abdi Al-Barr menegaskan: Abu Malikah yang tidak menyampaikan hadist ini selama satu tahun memberi tanda bahwa hadist ini telah lama di tinggalkan dan tidak pernah di kerjakan lagi. Jumhur ulama memandang bahwa hadist ini tidak untuk secara umum, mereka menganggap hadist ini hanya dikhususkan bagi Salim saja.(Kitab Syarhu az-Zarqani ala Al-Muwathatha 3/292).

Setelah menyevbutkan hadist ini, Al-Hafizh ad-Dharimi juga mengatakan dalam kitab sunannya:”Hadist ini dikhususkan bagi Salim seorang.”

Pendapat yang sama juga disebutkan pada riwayat-riwayat lainnya. Salah satunya adalah riwayat yang disebutkan oleh Imam Muslim, dari Ummu Salamah, ia berkata:”Seluruh istri-istri nabi menolak untuk menggunakan hukum penyusuan bagi kaum pria yang ingin bertemu dengan mereka. Lalu mereka berkata kepada Aisyah: Demi Allah, kami hanya melihat hukum itu sebagai keringanan dari Nabi yang khusus diberikan kepada Salim. Karena itulah kami tidak ingin seorangpun bertemu dan melihat kami dengan menggunakan hukum itu.”

Dengan demikian maka yang dilakukan oleh Aisyah (jika memang atsar itu shahih) tidak lain adalah ijtihad (pendapatnya pribadi) saja, sedangkan yang dipahami dan dilakukan oleh para sahabat dan istri-istri Nabi lainnya bertolak belakang dengan Ijtihad tersebut.

Para ulama memandang bahwa makna yang nyata dari hukum keringanan penyusuan pada Salim adalah keringanan untuk dirinya seorang, tidak untuk orang lain. sedangkan makna dari riwayat Aisyah kemungkinan besar adalah: apabila Aisyah memiiki firasat baik pada seorang bayi dan ia ingin agar anak itu nanti dapat bebas bertemu dengannya setelah dewasa nanti, maka ia menyuruh kemenakan-kemenakan perempuannya untuk menyusui mereka selagi mereka masih bayi, sehingga setelah mereka dewasa nanti mereka dapat bebas bertemu dengan Aisyah (sebagai bibi dari ibu susu mereka).

Pasalnya pendapat inilah yang dipilih oleh sebagian besar para istri Nabi, sebagian besar para sahabat, dan jumhur ulama. Makna itulah yang dapat dipahami dari dalil yang nyata yang bersebelahan dengan makna hadist Sahlah binti Suhail. Kalau seandainya hukum menyusui itu mutlak untuk semua orang (tidak hanya untuk para bayi yang kurang dari 2 tahun), maka hukum itu tentu akan banyak diketahui dan diikuti oleh para sahabat dan ulama salaf, mereka juga meriwayatkan pendapat yg sama dari berbagai sanad.

Para musuh Islam memahami sabda Nabi “susuilah,” dengan pemahaman yang keliru. Mereka mengira bahwa penyusuan pasti dilakukan dengan menyentuh payudara, higga muncullah pemahaman seperti itu. Penjelasan terbaik untuk masalah ini diutarakan oleh Imam Nawawi dalam kitabnya Syarh Sahih Muslim (10/13):Al-Qadhi mengatakan:”Sepertinya Sahlah mengeluarkan air susunya terlebih dahulu, barulah setelah itu diminum oleh Salim, sehingga Salim tidak perlu menyentuh apapun dan kulit tubuh mereka tidak ada yang bersentuhan, karena tidak halal seorang laki-laki melihat organ susu seorang wanita yang bukan mahramnya atupun menyentuhnya.”

Abu Umar mengatakan: Metode menyusui seorang pria dewasa adalah dikeluarkan air susu ibunya terlebih dahulu, kemudian ia meminumnya dari tempat lain. Dan tidak satupun ulama yang memperbolehkan pria dewasa disusui secara langsung oleh ibu susuannya. Dan pendapat inilah yang diunggulkan oleh Al-Qadhi dan Imam An-Nawawi. (Kitab Syarhu Az-Zarqani 3/316). Dalam Kitab Tabaqat Al-Kubra, Ibnu Sa’ad menyebutkan sebuah riwayat, dari Muhammad bin Abdillah bin Az-Zuhri, dari ayahnya, ia berkata: (Ketika Sahlah ingin memberikan air susunya kepada Salim) Sahlah menuangkan air susunya pada sebuah wadah, lalu Salim meminum air susu tersebut dari tempatnya setiap hari. Setelah lima hari Salim meminum susu tersebut dari tempatnya setiap hari. Setelah lima hari Salim meminum susu itu maka ia diperbolehkan untuk bertemu Sahlah walaupun Sahlah tanpa menggunakan tutup kepala (jilbab), sebagai keringanan yang diberikan Nabi kepada Sahlah. (Kitab Thabaqat Al-Kubra 8/271 dan Kitab Al-Ishabah karya Ibnu Hajar 7/716).

Kemudian juga, hadist tentang Sahlah sama sekali tidak memuat kata-kata menyentuh atau secara langsung, oleh karenanya penuding tidak berhak untuk mnegatakan bahwa yang mereka lakukan saat itu adalah perbuatan dosa. Apakah jika kita meminum susu sapi atau susu kambing maka kita harus meminumnya secara langsung atau menyentuh sapi terlebih dahulu? Kemudian juga, salah satu alasan Sahlah mengadu kepada Nabi berkaitan dengan kecemburuan Abu Hudzaifah terhadap Salim yang masuk kedalam rumahnya, padahal Salim bukanlah mahram dari Sahlah. Hanya dengan masuknya Salim ke dalam rumahnya saja Abu Hudzaifah sudah cemburu, maka bagimana mungkin ia memperbolehkan Sahlah untuk menyusui Salim secara langsung?

Jangankan menyentuh seperti itu, hanya bersalaman saja Nabi sudah mengharamkannya, karena beliau pernah bersabda:”Tertusuknya kepala kamu dengan paku akan lebih baik bagi kamu daripada kamu menyentuh wanita yang tidak dihalalkan bagimu (bukan mahram).”(Kitab Shahih Al-Jami’:5045). dan Nabi juga pernah bersabda:“Sesungguhnya aku tidak (pernah dan tidak akan pernah) bersalaman dengan kaum wanita (asing yang bukan mahramku).”(Kitab Shahih Jami’:5213)

Bagaimana mungkin nabi memperbolehkan Salim untuk menyentuh bagian tubuh Sahlah tatkala beliau memerintahkan Sahlah menyusui Salim, padahal beliau megharamkan kaum pria untuk menyentuh tangan wanita yang bukan mahramnya?

Lalu apabila seorang anak kecil yang minum air susu ibu tanpa mnyentuh mengisapnya dari payudara ibunya secara langsung, jumhur ulama berpendapat anak itu dikategorikan sebagai anak susuan dan harus mengikuti hukum-hukum penyusuan. Selama seorang anak kecil yang meminum susu tanpa mengisapnya dari payudara secara langsung tetap dikategorikan sebagai anak susuan, maka seharusnya orang dewasa yang melakukannya seperti itu lebih layak untuk ditetapkan hukum-hukum penyusuan baginya.

Seorang ulama ilmu Nahwu, Ibnu Qutaibah Ad-Dinuri pernah mengomentari hadist tersebut. Ia mengatakan: nabi hendak memahramkan Salim dan Sahlah, beliau juga ingin mempersatukan mereka dalam satu rumah tanpa ada rasa canggung diantara mereka, dan beliau juga mau menghilangkan rasa cemburu pada diri Abu Hudzaifah sekaligus merasa senang dengan keberadaan Salim dirumahnya. Nabi berkata:”Susuilah ia” namun Nabi tidak mengatakan :Letakkan payudaramu dimulutnya.” Beliau tidak mengatakan hal itu karena yang beliau inginkan adalah:”Keluarkanlah air susumu pada suatu tempat, lalu berikanlah kepadanya agar ia dapat meminumnya.: Inilah makna yang sebenarnya, tidak ada dan tidak boleh dimaknai dengan interpretasi yang lain. Pasalnya Salim tidak di perbolehkan untuk melihat bagian tubuh Sahlah sebelum ditetapkan baginya hukum penyusuan, maka bagaimana mungkin ia di perbolehkan untuk berbuat sesuatu yang diharamkan baginya (meminumnya secara langsung), atau berbuat sesuatu yg tidak dapat dijamin syahwatnya akan terjaga? (Kitab Ta’wil Mukhtalaf Al-Hadist karya Ibnu Qutaibah hal.308-309).

Keputusan Nabi itu adalah rahmat yang diberikan beliau kepada Sahlah dan anak angkatnya, karena di antara mereka pasti ada kasih sayang antara ibu dan anak. Salim di asuh Sahlah sejak kecil, maka tentu Sahlah sudah menganggap Salim sebagai anaknya sendiri, dan Salimsudah menganggap Sahlah sebagai ibunya sendiri. Sulit bagi Salim ataupun bagi Sahlah untuk dipisahkan. Apalagi usia sahlah semakin lama semakin menua, tentu ia dan suaminya membtuhkan anak muda seperti Salim untuk membantu mereka.

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَا يُحَرِّمُ مِنْ الرِّضَاعَةِ إِلَّا مَا فَتَقَ الْأَمْعَاءَ فِي الثَّدْيِ وَكَانَ قَبْلَ الْفِطَامِ
قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ صَحِيحٌ وَالْعَمَلُ عَلَى هَذَا عِنْدَ أَكْثَرِ أَهْلِ الْعِلْمِ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَغَيْرِهِمْ أَنَّ الرَّضَاعَةَ لَا تُحَرِّمُ إِلَّا مَا كَانَ دُونَ الْحَوْلَيْنِ وَمَا كَانَ بَعْدَ الْحَوْلَيْنِ الْكَامِلَيْنِ فَإِنَّهُ لَا يُحَرِّمُ شَيْئًا وَفَاطِمَةُ بِنْتُ الْمُنْذِرِ بْنِ الزُّبَيْرِ بْنِ الْعَوَّامِ وَهِيَ امْرَأَةُ هِشَامِ بْنِ عُرْوَةَ

Sunan Tirmidzi 1072:

Telah menceritakan kepada kami Qutaibah, telah menceritakan kepada kami Abu ‘Awanah dari Hisyam bin ‘Urwah dari Bapaknya dari Fathimah bin Al Mundzir dari Umu Salamah berkata; Rasulullah shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam bersabda: “Persusuan tidak bisa menjadikan mahram, kecuali (susuan) yang mengenyangkan dan terjadi sebelum disapih.” Abu Isa berkata; “Ini merupakan hadits hasan sahih dan diamalkan para ulama dari kalangan sahabat Nabi shallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam dan yang lainnya; bahwa persusuan tidak menjadikan mahram kecuali pada bayi di bawah dua tahun. Jika telah berlangsung waktu dua tahun, tidak menjadikan mahram. Fathimah binti Al Mundzir bin Zubair bin ‘Awwam adalah istri Hisyam bin ‘Urwah.”




QS 2:233

۞ وَالْوَالِدَاتُ يُرْضِعْنَ أَوْلَادَهُنَّ حَوْلَيْنِ كَامِلَيْنِ ۖ لِمَنْ أَرَادَ أَن يُتِمَّ الرَّضَاعَةَ ۚ وَعَلَى الْمَوْلُودِ لَهُ رِزْقُهُنَّ وَكِسْوَتُهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ ۚ لَا تُكَلَّفُ نَفْسٌ إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَا تُضَارَّ وَالِدَةٌ بِوَلَدِهَا وَلَا مَوْلُودٌ لَّهُ بِوَلَدِهِ ۚ وَعَلَى الْوَارِثِ مِثْلُ ذَٰلِكَ ۗ فَإِنْ أَرَادَا فِصَالًا عَن تَرَاضٍ مِّنْهُمَا وَتَشَاوُرٍ فَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِمَا ۗ وَإِنْ أَرَدتُّمْ أَن تَسْتَرْضِعُوا أَوْلَادَكُمْ فَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذَا سَلَّمْتُم مَّا آتَيْتُم بِالْمَعْرُوفِ ۗ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ [٢:٢٣٣]

Para ibu hendaklah menyusukan anak-anaknya selama dua tahun penuh, yaitu bagi yang ingin menyempurnakan penyusuan. Dan kewajiban ayah memberi makan dan pakaian kepada para ibu dengan cara ma’ruf. Seseorang tidak dibebani melainkan menurut kadar kesanggupannya. Janganlah seorang ibu menderita kesengsaraan karena anaknya dan seorang ayah karena anaknya, dan warispun berkewajiban demikian. Apabila keduanya ingin menyapih (sebelum dua tahun) dengan kerelaan keduanya dan permusyawaratan, maka tidak ada dosa atas keduanya. Dan jika kamu ingin anakmu disusukan oleh orang lain, maka tidak ada dosa bagimu apabila kamu memberikan pembayaran menurut yang patut. Bertakwalah kamu kepada Allah dan ketahuilah bahwa Allah Maha Melihat apa yang kamu kerjakan.

QS 31:14

وَوَصَّيْنَا الْإِنسَانَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ حَمَلَتْهُ أُمُّهُ وَهْنًا عَلَىٰ وَهْنٍ وَفِصَالُهُ فِي عَامَيْنِ أَنِ اشْكُرْ لِي وَلِوَالِدَيْكَ إِلَيَّ الْمَصِيرُ [٣١:١٤]

Dan Kami perintahkan kepada manusia (berbuat baik) kepada dua orang ibu-bapaknya; ibunya telah mengandungnya dalam keadaan lemah yang bertambah-tambah, dan menyapihnya dalam dua tahun. Bersyukurlah kepada-Ku dan kepada dua orang ibu bapakmu, hanya kepada-Kulah kembalimu.



Hadist riwayat Imam Malik diatas, yang mengisahkan tentang Ummul Mukminin yang menyusui orang dewasa, jangankan saat ini, bahkan dijamannya sendiri, bahkan disebutkan di dalam hadist yang sama, SUDAH DITOLAK OLEH ISTRI-ISTRI NABI LAINNYA.

Sehingga hadist tersebut bahkan menjadi sangat lemah untuk dipercaya dan dijadikan sebagai dasar hukum penyusuan orang dewasa, apalagi setelah lalu terbuti bertentangan dengan hadis sahih lainnya, yaitu hadist riwayat Tirmidzi, bahkan bertentangan pula dengan ayat-ayat AlQuran tentang batas usia penyusuan. (QS 2;233, QS 31:14)

Part 1 -Kyai Haji Saifuddin Ibrahim-Kebodohan dan Kebohongannya (Muhammad SAW,Yesus A.S dan peperangan)

Original link: http://redaksipetang.blogspot.co.id/2016/07/alasan-kyai-haji-saifuddin-ibrahim-dari.html

Catatan: Mohon artikel saya ini tidak di tafsirkan sebagai penyerangan terhadap agama lain terutama Kristiani. Artikel ini dibuat untuk memberikan keseimbangan terhadap perilaku seorang teman Kristiani (teman SMA ku) yang gemar menyakiti hati teman Muslim dengan artikel-artikel mendiskreditkan Islam. Aktifitas ibu ini yang terakhir adalah mem-postingkan artikel diatas. Saya sebagai seorang Muslim tidak bisa berpangku tangan karena apa yang di ajukan dalam artikel adalah sangat menggelikan keluar dari seorang yang bergelar “Kiyai Haji”. beberapa dari website Kristiani menggelarkannya “Guru Besar Al Quran Syaifuddin Ibrohim”. WOW!

Artikel-artikel tentang seorang murtad bernama “Kiyai Haji” Saifuddin Ibrahim telah beredar didunia maya beserta nama-nama lain yang mengaku “Mantan” Muslim terdidik yang pernah mengecap pendidikan tinggi ilmu keIslaman. Beberapa diantara mereka tertangkap berbohong karena tidak sama sekali bisa membaca tulisan Arab apa lagi ayat-ayat Al-Qur’an.
Ingat pendeta Pendeta Samuel Hermawan ?
Pendeta Yusuf Roni?

Pangakuan sebagai seorang MURTAD yang berilmu tinggi dalam ajaran Islam memang sudah menjadi TAKTIK jitu untuk mencuri keimanan para Muslim yang lemah taraf ilmu ke-Islaman mereka.
Bagaimana tentang “Kiyai Haji” atau “Guru Besar Al Quran Syaifuddin Ibrohim”?

Perhatikan pengakuannya terhadap apa yang menyebabkan dia murtad dari Islam.

1. Perbuatan Muhammad [3]
Muhammad 27 kali terjun perang dan lebih dari ratusan kali mengirim pasukan untuk memerangi suku-suku yang lebih lemah. Sebaliknya ajaran Yeshua adalah KASIH. Dalam Perjanjian Baru tidak ada ayat yang membolehkan membunuh. [Muhammad hidup sekitar 600 tahun setelah Yeshua Ha Mashiah].



Terlalu menggelikan bagi seorang KIYAI membandingkan situasi masa kehidupan Nabi Muhammad SAW dengan situasi masa kehidupan Yesus A.S. Membuktikan dia tidak terpelajar sama sekali dalam bidang SEJARAH ISLAM terutama sejarah hidup Nabi Muhammad SAW. Nabi SAW dan Yesus (Isa) A.S mempunya situasi masa hidup bagai bumi dan langit. Muhammad SAW adalah seorang pemimpin negara, seorang presiden, seorang panglima perang. Bagaimana dengan Yesus A.S?

Muhammad SAW dan para muslim mengalami penyiksaan dari kaum Quraish Makkah untuk meninggalkan agama baru yang mereka baru saja dapatkan dari Nabi Muhammad SAW. Para Muslim hijrah ke Madinah bersama Muhammad SAW dan membentuk pemerintahan baru. Kaum Kafir Quraish murka dan menantang perang kaum Muslimin. Perang besar pertama terjadi (perang Badr) dan tidak dapat dihindarkan. Dalam perang Uhud, sekali lagi Nabi Muhammad SAW di perangi kaum Quraish Makkah yang membalas dendam karena dikalahkan dalam perang sebelumnya. Perang Khandak, para Muslimin diserang dua kubu. Kafir Quraish dan Yahudi. Perang Khaibar, Nabi SAW tidak ada opsi lain untuk menyerang benteng Yahudi karena pengkhianatannya bekerja sama dengan para Quraish untuk menyerang Madinah.Perang Mut’ah terjadi karena utusan Nabi Muhammad SAW Harits bin Umair R.A dihadang dan dibunuh. Menurut adat yang berlaku pada saat itu –dan berlaku hingga sekarang- bahwa utusan tidak boleh dibunuh dan kapan saja membunuh utusan, maka berarti menyatakan pengumuman perang.

BAGAIMANA SITUASI SEPERTI INI BISA DIBANDINGKAN DENGAN SITUASI KEHIDUPAN YESUS A.S? Muhammad SAW adalah seorang pemimpin negara, seorang presiden, seorang panglima perang. Bagaimana dengan Yesus A.S?

Perang-perang kecil yang lain, BUKAN UNTUK MENYERANG KAUM LEMAH. Selain permasalahan dalam negeri, pengkhianatan, Psy WAR, para NABI juga mendapatkan perintah dari TUHAN mereka untuk memerangi para PENYEMBAH BERHALA dan para penentang monotheism. Sama dengan perintah ALLAH pada Nabi MUSA A.S. Perhatikan Perjanjian lama anda.

6:14 Janganlah kamu mengikuti allah lain, dari antara allah bangsa-bangsa sekelilingmu, 6:15 sebab TUHAN, Allahmu, o adalah Allah yang cemburu di tengah-tengahmu, supaya jangan bangkit murka TUHAN, Allahmu, terhadap engkau, sehingga Ia memunahkan engkau dari muka bumi. 6:16 Janganlah kamu mencobai TUHAN, Allahmu, p seperti kamu mencobai Dia di Masa

Dibawah ini Perintah Allah pada Nabi Musa A.S untuk berperang.

Kitab BILANGAN: 31:6 Lalu Musa menyuruh mereka untuk berperang, seribu orang dari tiap-tiap suku, bersama-sama dengan Pinehas, h anak imam Eleazar, untuk berperang, dengan membawa perkakas tempat kudus i dan nafiri-nafiri j pemberi tanda semboyan. 31:7Kemudian berperanglah mereka melawan Midian, seperti yang diperintahkan TUHAN kepada Musa, k lalu membunuh semua laki-laki mereka. l31:8 Selain dari orang-orang yang mati terbunuh itu, merekapun membunuh juga raja-raja Midian, yakni Ewi, Rekem, Zur, Hur dan Reba, m kelima raja Midian, n juga Bileam bin Beor o dibunuh mereka dengan pedang. p31:9Kemudian Israel menawan perempuan-perempuan q Midian dan anak-anak mereka; juga segala hewan, segala ternak dan segenap kekayaan mereka dijarah.

(Tidak ada satu perangpun Nabi Muhammad SAW melakukan segala kekejian seperti yang dilakukan Nabi Musa versi Perjanjian Lama)

Mantan Kiyai mengatakan:  Dalam Perjanjian Baru tidak ada ayat yang membolehkan membunuh.

Solusi apa yang bisa kalian berikan ketika mereka Yesus menggantikan kedudukan Nabi Muhammad atau Nabi Musa A.S pada situasi beliau hidup? Apa yang dilakukan para Kristen ketika Belanda datang menjajah Indonesia ratusan tahun lalu? Sembunyi dalam Rumah? Kalau ada orang jahat memasukki rumah anda dan mengancam kehidupan anggota keluarga, apa yang akan anda lakukan? Apa yang akan anda lakukan ketika musuh menjatuhkan bom pada kota anda?

Berikut beberapa peraturan dalam berperang yang harus dipatuhi oleh umat Muslim ketika berperang melawan musuh: (disarikan dari beberapa hadith).

Dilarang melakukan pengkhianatan jika sudah terjadi kesepakatan damai,
Dilarang membunuh wanita dan anak-anak, kecuali mereka ikut berperang maka boleh diperangi,
Dilarang membunuh orang tua dan orang sakit,
Dilarang membunuh pekerja (orang upahan),
Dilarang mengganggu para biarawan dan tidak membunuh umat yang tengah beribadah.
Dilarang memutilasi mayat musuh,
Dilarang membakar pepohonan, merusak ladang atau kebun,
Dilarang membunuh ternak kecuali untuk dimakan,
Dilarang menghancurkan desa atau kota,




The Christians attacked Islam using the verses in Al-Qur’an about taking the WAR BOOTY.

But they do’n know their God legalizes taking the war booty for for themselves.

Deuteronomy 20:10-141599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

10 When thou comest near unto a city to fight against it, thou shalt offer it peace.

11 And if it answer thee again [a]peaceably, and open unto thee, then let all the people that is found therein, be tributaries unto thee, and serve thee.
12 But if it will make no peace with thee, but make war against thee, then shalt thou besiege it.
13 And the Lord thy God shall deliver it into thine hands, and thou shalt smite all the males thereof with the edge of the sword.
14 Only the women, and the children, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof shalt thou take unto thyself, and shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the Lord thy God hath given thee.

Numbers 31:52-541599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

52 And all the gold of the offering that they offered up to the Lord (of the captains over thousands and hundreds) was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels.

53 (For the men of war had spoiled, every man for [a]himself.)

54 And Moses and Eleazar the Priest took the gold of the captains over the thousands, and over the hundreds, and brought it into the Tabernacle of the Congregation, for a[b]memorial of the children of Israel before the Lord.



Numbers 31

Offerings from War Booty

25 Then the Lord told Moses, 26 Take an inventory of the booty that was taken in the battle,[h] both of humans and of animals. Then you, Eleazar the priest, and the leaders of the fathers of the community 27 are to divide the booty between the warriors who went to war and the rest of the community.

28 “After this, you are to exact a tribute for the Lord from the soldiers who went to war, consisting of the tribute earned by one person out of every 500, whether from people, cattle, donkeys, or flocks. 29 You are to take half their share and give it to Eleazar the priest as a raised offering to the Lord. 30 Then take half the share of the Israelis, one drawn out of every 50 people, cattle, donkeys, flocks, and from every animal, then give to the descendants of Levi who maintain the service of the Lord’s tent.”

31 So Moses and Eleazar the priest did what the Lord had commanded Moses. 32 The goods confiscated in excess of the war implements[i] that the warriors had gathered included 675,000 sheep, 33 72,000 cattle, 34 61,000 donkeys, and 35 32,000 women who had not had sexual relations with a man.

God’s Portion of the War Booty

36 Now half of the share of those who went to war numbered 337,500 sheep, 37 so theLord’s tribute from the sheep totaled 675. 38 The cattle numbered 36,000, so the Lord’s tribute totaled 72. 39 The donkeys numbered 30,500, so the Lord’s tribute totaled 61.40 The people[j] numbered 16,000, so the Lord’s tribute totaled 32 people. 41 Then Moses gave the tribute, a raised offering to the Lord, to Eleazar the priest, just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 42 From half of the share of the Israelis that Moses had set aside from the soldiers, 43 there were 337,500 sheep for the community, 44 36,000 cattle, 45 30,500 donkeys, 46 and 16,000 people.

47 Moses took a portion drawn from every 50 Israelis, including from both human and animals, and gave them to the descendants of Levi who maintained the Lord’s tent, just as the Lord had commanded him.[k] 48 Then the officers in charge of thousands of soldiers, the captains of thousands, and the captains of hundreds approached Moses 49 and told him,[l] “Your servants took a count of the soldiers who were under our authority. We didn’t miss a single man. 50 We’ve brought offerings to the Lord from whatever each man found—jewel-encrusted gold, anklets, bracelets, signet rings, earrings, and necklaces—to make atonement for ourselves[m] in the Lord’s presence.”

51 Then Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold from them and everything that was fashioned into jewels. 52 The gold for the raised offering that they brought to the Lordtotaled 16,750 shekels, 53 because every soldier had confiscated war booty for his own use. 54 Moses and Eleazar took the gold from the captains of thousands and hundreds and brought it to the Tent of Meeting, to serve as a memorial to the Israelis in the Lord’s presence.

31 So Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.
32 The plunder remaining from the spoils that the soldiers took was 675,000 sheep,
33 72,000 cattle,
34 61,000 donkeys
35 and 32,000 women who had never slept with a man.
36 The half share of those who fought in the battle was: 337,500 sheep,
37 of which the tribute for the LORD was 675;
38 36,000 cattle, of which the tribute for the LORD was 72;
39 30,500 donkeys, of which the tribute for the LORD was 61;
40 16,000 people, of which the tribute for the LORD was 32.



Booty [S]

captives or cattle or objects of value taken in war. In Canaan all that breathed were to be destroyed ( Deuteronomy 20: : 16 ). The “pictures and images” of the Canaanites were to be destroyed also ( Numbers 33:52 ). The law of booty as to its division is laid down in Numbers 31:26-47 . David afterwards introduced a regulation that the baggage-guard should share the booty equally with the soldiers engaged in battle. He also devoted of the spoils of war for the temple ( 1 Samuel 30:24-26 ; 2 Sam 8:11 ; 1 Chronicles 26:27 ).

consisted of captives of both sexes, cattle, and whatever a captured city might contain, especially metallic treasures. Within the limits of Canaan no captives were to be made, ( deuteronomy 20:14deuteronomy 20:16 ) beyond these limits, in case of warlike resistance, all the women and children were to be made captives, and the men put to death.

boot’-i (baz and baz):

“Booty” is the translation of baz or baz, usually rendered “prey” and “spoil” (Jeremiah 49:32); of malqoach, “prey,” “booty” (Numbers 31:32, “the booty–the rest of the prey,” the Revised Version (British and American) “the prey, over and above the booty,” baz); of meshiccah, “spoil” (Habakkuk 2:7; Zechariah 1:13; the Revised Version (British and American) “spoil”); of opheleia, “gain” (2 Macc 8:20). “Booty respects what is of personal service to the captor; spoils whatever serves to designate his triumph; prey includes whatever gratifies the appetite and is to be consumed” (Crabb, English Synonymes). Persons (for slaves, etc.) might be part of the booty.

By Sami Zaatari

This site including myself have already written a couple of articles regarding the prophet’s marriage to Aisha, however so I thought it would be helpful of me if I wrote a detailed article on this marriage discussing the marriage and why it was something normal back then and nothing strange or bad.

1- Did the Prophet Marry Aisha at the age of 6?

Authentic Hadith reports do show us that the prophet Muhammad did marry Aisha at the age of 6, but they also show the consummation of the marriage was complete when she was 9 years old.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 234:

Narrated Aisha:

The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became Allright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 236:
Narrated Hisham’s father:

Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married ‘Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3310:
‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old.

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3311:

‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.

Now some may object to this by saying how could the Prophet marry Aisha at such a young age. One must first understand that 1400 years ago was very different than now, times have changed and so have humans. 1400 years ago it was something very common to marry young girls, in fact they were not considered young girls, rather they were considered young women back then. It is a historic fact that girls from the ages of 9 to 14 were being married in Europe, Asia, and Africa, in fact even in the United States girls at the age of 10 were also being married just more than a century ago.
Yet with these facts no historian claims that all these people were sick perverts, historians would call anyone who made such a claim to be arrogant and very stupid who has no grasp or understanding of history.

Furthermore as to the prophets Marriage with Aisha, something people will notice is that the completion of the marriage was done when Aisha was 9 years old, not when she was 6, and there is a reason for that. The reason why this happened is because Aisha had been through puberty by the age of 9, and in Islam a female who under-goes puberty is considered a lady and is fit for marriage. Now some may say how does a girl go through puberty at the age of 9? :

When does puberty start? Although puberty usually starts between ages 8 to 13 in girls, it may start earlier or later. Everyone’s body changes at a different time. Whether you have breasts at age 10 or have not started your period by age 14, do not worry. Everyone goes through puberty eventually. (http://www.healthtouch.com/bin/EContent_HT/cnoteShowLfts.asp?fname=07103&title=PUBERTY+IN+GIRLS+&cid=HTHLTH)

So note, a period for a girl occurs from the age of 8 to 14, though this is not always the case as a girl can also start her period by 14 or maybe 15. However so for Aisha it is most likely her puberty started at 8, and continued till she was 9, and once she was going through puberty and her menses, this made her a lady and not a girl anymore since she was fit for a baby therefore she is no child anymore.
In fact early symptoms of a girl going through puberty is described as:

You may get PMS. PMS or “premenstrual syndrome” is a group of changes you may see and feel before your period. You may have headaches, dizziness, or feel sick to your stomach before your period. You may feel like crying more, feel a little sad, and feel more emotional about everything. PMS may cause you to retain (hold onto) water. Retaining water means that your body tries to keep more body fluid in before and during your period. This may make your breasts tender and cause you to feel bloated, restless, or grumpy.

If we read the hadiths, we find that right before Aisha got married off to the prophet that she was sick and not feeling to well:

Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 234:
Narrated Aisha:

The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became Allright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age.

So as we can see, Aisha got ill and her body was going through some changes, indicating that she was going through her puberty. In fact during puberty a girl will want to be away from her family, meaning her mother and father:

Want to be away from your family: During puberty, you may want to spend most of your time with friends instead of family members. You may feel embarrassed by your family or parents. You may feel like your parents have no idea what you are going through during puberty. It is normal for you to want to be with and dress like your friends most of the time. Just remember that sometime your family may be a better support for you than your friends. (http://www.healthtouch.com/bin/EContent_HT/cnoteShowLfts.asp?fname=07103&title=PUBERTY+IN+GIRLS+&cid=HTHLTH)

Aisha had no problems when she moved in with the Prophet, nor did she show signs of distress from being away from her mother or father, rather she was very happy, obviously not the type of emotion you would get from a supposed child now would you? A child will want to be with its mother and father, and if it is taken away from them it will cry a lot and will be very distressed, yet no such signs were shown from Aisha.

So therefore as we can see, there was nothing wrong with the marriage, Aisha was going through puberty, she was fit to have a child, meaning she was not a child anymore, and under God a lady who goes through puberty is officially considered fit for marriage, this is something that many Christians agree on as do the Jews.

2- Was the Prophet a paedophile? (astaghfurillah may God curse those who call the prophet such a name!)

Now what is a paedophile?

“Low self esteem. Many pedophiles, although by no means all, do not have a great sense of capacity for adopting a sexual demeanor towards adults or those of their own age or older. They feel unhappy and fearful at the prospect of sexual behaviour with adults and hence turn to children due to the fact that they are unable to have the strength of personality to seek adults for sexual demeanor. When considering treatment therefore it is important to establish and develop a higher sense of self-esteem in such individuals.”

This obviously cannot be referring to the prophet Muhammad, the prophet sure did not have low self esteem, the prophet had hundreds and hundreds of followers and a person with low self esteem would not be able to do what he did.

Secondly, the prophet Muhammad did not have any fear of having sexual intercourse with adults, for instance Khadijah the first wife of the Prophet was much older than he was!

Safiur-Rahman al-Mubarakpuri’s biography:

Khadijah Bint Khuwailid:
In Makkah ? prior to Hijra ? the Prophet’s household comprised him [pbuh] and his wife Khadijah bint Khuwailid. He was twenty-five and she was forty when they got married. She was the first woman he married. She was the only wife he had till she died. He had sons and daughters with her. None of their sons lived long. They all died. Their daughters were Zainab, Ruqaiya, Umm Kulthum and Fatimah.
Zainab was married to her maternal cousin Abu Al-?As bin Al-Rabi? and that was before Al-Hijra. Ruqaiya and Umm Kulthum were both married to ?Uthman bin ?Affan successively (i.e. he married one after the death of her sister). Fatimah was married to ?Ali bin Abi Talib; and that was in the period between Badr and Uhud battles. The sons and daughters that Fatimah and ?Ali had were Al-Hasan, Al-Husain, Zainab and Umm Kulthum.
It is well-known that the Prophet [pbuh] was exceptionally authorized to have more than four wives for various reasons. The wives he married were thirteen. Nine of them outlived him. Two died in his lifetime: Khadijah and the Mother of the poor (Umm Al-Masakeen) ? Zainab bint Khuzaima, besides two others with whom he did not consummate his marriage.
Let us see what else a pedophile is:

“Lack of impulse control. Many pedophiles find it extremely difficult to deal with the impulsive nature which inclines them towards sexual behaviour to children. They simply cannot control their need for engaging children in sexual practices. They might be said to suffer from an obsessive-compulsive condition. Here again treatment would involve developing better impulse control and of course redirecting the sexual inclinations.”

Thankfully the prophet does not fit this description, in fact Aisha herself testifies to it:

Sahih Al-Bukhari

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 299:

Narrated ‘Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Aswad:

(on the authority of his father) ‘Aisha said: “Whenever Allah’s Apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he used to order her to put on an Izar and start fondling her.” ‘Aisha added, “None of you could control his sexual desires as the Prophet could.”

Sahih Muslim
Book 006, Number 2439:

‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) used to kiss (his wives) while fasting and embraced (them) while fasting; but he had the greatest mastery over his desire among you.

If this was true on the prophet then he would have just had intercourse with Aisha when she was 6 and he would have also married several other girls at the age of 4-7 and had intercourse with them, yet he never did such a thing.

Other symptoms of a paedophile is loneliness, this is defiantly not true for the prophet, he always had people around him, from companions to his wives, he in fact never had much privacy! Also another symptom of a paedophile is someone who was sexually abused as a child or in some part of his or her life, this never happened to the prophet Muhammad.

Let us now see what the scholars have to say regarding the marriage:

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married ?Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) after he married Sawdah bint Zam’ah (may Allaah be pleased with her). She – ?Aa’ishah – was the only virgin whom he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married. And he consummated the marriage with her when she was nine years old.

Among her virtues was the fact that the Revelation did not descend when he under one cover with any of his wives other than her. She was one of the dearest of all people to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and news of her innocence was revealed from above the seven heavens. She was one of the most knowledgeable of his wives, and one of the most knowledgeable women of the ummah as a whole. The senior companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to refer to her opinion and consult her.

With regard to the story of her marriage, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had grieved over the death of the Mother of the Believers Khadeejah, who had supported him and stood by his side, and he called the year in which she died The Year of Sorrow. Then he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married Sawdah, who was an older woman and was not very beautiful; rather he married her to console her after her husband had died and she stayed among mushrik people. Four years later the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) married ?Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), and he was over fifty. Perhaps the reasons for the marriage were as follows:

1 – He saw a dream about marrying her. It is proven in al-Bukhaari from the hadeeth of ?Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to her: “You were shown to me twice in a dream. I saw that you were wrapped in a piece of silk, and it was said, ?This is your wife.’ I uncovered her and saw that it was you. I said, ?If this is from Allaah then it will come to pass.'” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, no. 3682). As to whether this is a prophetic vision as it appears to be, or a regular dream that may be subject to interpretation, there was a difference of opinion among the scholars, as mentioned by al-Haafiz in Fath al-Baari, 9/181.

2 – The characteristics of intelligence and smartness that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) had noticed in ?Aa’ishah even as a small child, so he wanted to marry her so that she would be more able than others to transmit reports of what he did and said. In fact, as stated above, she was a reference point for the Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with them) with regard to their affairs and rulings.

3 – The love of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) for her father Abu Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with him), and the persecution that Abu Bakr (may Allaah be pleased with him) had suffered for the sake of the call of truth, which he bore with patience. He was the strongest of people in faith and the most sincere in certain faith, after the Prophets.

It may be noted that among his wives were those who were young and old, the daughter of his sworn enemy, the daughter of his closest friend. One of them occupied herself with raising orphans, another distinguished herself from others by fasting and praying qiyaam a great deal. They represented all kinds of people, through whom the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was able to set out a way for the Muslims showing how to deal properly with all kinds of people. [See al-Seerah al-Nabawiyyah fi Daw’ al-Masaadir al-Asliyyah, p. 711].

With regard to the issue of her being young and your being confused about that, you should note that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) grew up in a hot country, the Arabian Peninsula. Usually in hot countries adolescence comes early and people marry early. This is how the people of Arabia were until recently. Moreover, women vary greatly in their development and their physical readiness for marriage.

If you think – may Allaah guide you – that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not marry any virgin other than ?Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her), and that all his other wives had been previously married, this will refute the notion spread by many hostile sources, that the basic motive behind the Prophet’s marriages was physical desire and enjoyment of women, because if that was his intention he would have chosen only those who were virgins and beautiful etc.

Such slanders against the Prophet of Mercy (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) by kaafirs and others of their ilk, are indicative of their inability to find fault with the law and religion that he brought from Allaah, so they try to find ways to criticize Islam with regard to issues that are not related to sharee’ah.

And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. (http://islam-qa.com/index.php?ref=44990&ln=eng)

A scholar on Islamonline.net Muzammil Siddiqi writes:

Before answering your question, we would like first to state that through the centuries, the enemies of Islam have advanced numerous accusations and far-fetched theories to discredit Islam and its last Prophet, Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Praise be to Allah alone, all such accusations have been successfully refuted by the Muslim Ummah. It is no wonder that we see a group of some Christians reinventing accusations against the noble character of the Prophet about his marriage to young `A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her).

We have forwarded your question to Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi, former President of the Islamic Society of North America and Director of the Islamic Society of Orange County, Garden Grove, California. He states the following:

“The author of this flyer attacks the character of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) by using these words, “Prophet of God having sex with a 9-year-old girl.” He is trying to confuse his readers as if the Prophet was not married to this girl or married her against her will. The Prophet’s wife `A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) was indeed young, but he married her according to the traditions of his people at that time.

`A’ishah was most pleased with this marriage. She became his best supporter and learned much of Islam from him. She was a great teacher for many women and men of her time. Her parents were very pleased with this marriage. Historically, it is not confirmed that she was 9 years old when she came in the household of the Prophet. There are various reports from age 9 to age 24. Her maturity, knowledge, intelligence, and contributions during the life of the Prophet and afterwards all indicate that she was either an exceptional nine-year-old or must have been older than that. Whatever the case may be about her age, one thing is certain: she was a most compatible spouse of Prophet Muhammad. None of the contemporaries of the Prophet, his friends or foes, are reported to be surprised by this marriage or made objections to it.

The author should read his own Bible and ask himself how fair he is in judging Prophet Muhammad with one standard and his own prophets with another. If he thinks that a Prophet of God should not have a very young wife, then he should also reject Abraham as God’s Prophet. If he cannot accept a 50-year-old Prophet of God having a 9-year-old wife (though I do not agree that she was 9), then he should also not accept an 86-year- old Prophet of God who slept with a young maiden of his own wife without marrying her, as the Bible says (see Genesis 16:1-16). He should then reject all the Prophets who came in the line of Prophet Abraham, including Jesus. He should also reject the whole Bible, Old and New Testament, because they both praise Abraham as a great person.

We as Muslims, of course, honor Prophet Ibrahim (peace and blessings be upon him) and respect his marriage to Hajar (may Allah be pleased with her). She was the honored mother of Prophet Isma`il (peace and blessings be upon him and upon all the Prophets of God).”
Another group of scholars also write:

we’d like to make it clear in the very beginning that Prophet’s marriage to `Aisha, the Mother of the Faithful, has always been a subject of attack and criticism by the enemies of Islam. First of all, we want to clarify to people who view this marriage as some sort of brutal act and child abuse that they should try to understand the main purpose of this marriage and the condition of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, before the marriage.

As for the purpose of this marriage, it was purely for sociopolitical reason. The Prophet’s main concern was the future of Islam. He was interested in strengthening the Muslims by all bonds. This also explains the reason why he married the daughter of `Umar, his Second Successor. It was by his marriage to Juwayriyyah that he gained the support for Islam of the whole clan of Bani Al-Mustaliq and their allied tribes. It was through his marriage to Safiyyah that he neutralized a great section of the hostile Jews of Arabia. By accepting Mariya, the Copt from Egypt, as his wife, he formed a political alliance with a king of great magnitude. So his marriage to `Aisha could never be of anything save cementing his relation with Abu Bakr, `Aisha’s father.

As for the Prophet’s condition before this marriage, it clearly explained what we’ve said that it was a purely sublime aim and purpose that motivated him to marry `Aisha. That’s why the marriage was not consummated until sometime after the emigration to Madinah, when she had reached maturity. The motives of this marriage can be understood to be anything except passion and physical attraction. However, he lived with her, in addition to Sawdah, for five to six years, when he was 56 years of age, without taking any other wife.

One important point we have to clarify here is that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, when proposing to `Aisha, was not the first suitor, for, according to many historians, Jubair ibn Mut`am proposed to her before the Prophet, peace and blessings for him. This gives an indication that `Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, was mature enough for marriage at that age.
Giving more details on this issue, Sheikh Faysal Mawlawi, deputy chairman of the European Council for Fatwa and Research, states the following:

Firstly, Prophet’s proposal to `Aisha came through a suggestion made by Khawalh bint Hakim as a sign of strengthening the relation with his Companion Abu Bakr and confirming his love for him.

Secondly, the fact that `Aisha, before the Prophet proposed to her, was being pursued by Jubair ibn Mut`am, indicates that she was mature enough for marriage, according to the prevailing tradition at that time, if not, the Quraish people, who would never waste any chance to insult the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, would have found this marriage as a golden opportunity to pour on him rain of insults. Rather they found nothing wrong in this engagement, and they received the news of the Prophet’s proposal for `Aisha as something usual, and even, expected.

`Aisha was not the first case, for many girls married at her same age to men who were at their fathers’ age. Hala, the cousin of Amina bint Wahb was married to Abdul-Muttalib on the same day his son `Abdullah married Aminah bint Wahb who was at Hala’s same age. Also, the Companion `Umar ibn Al-Khattab married the daughter of Ali ibn Abi Talib, may Allah honor his face, while he was at her grandpa’s age.

After the passage of many centuries, we find now some Orientalists who try to strike a comparison between the conditions of our present time and what was existing 1400 years ago. They are trying to apply the criterions of the Western society to that society that existed in the Arabian Peninsula very long ago.

It should be noted that in the hot regions, it’s normal for a girl to attain maturity at a very early age. Thus the case is totally different from that which does exist in the cold regions where a girl does not attain puberty before 21 [Physicians maintain that the age of puberty in the hot regions normally ranges from 9 to 16]. At all rates, it should be stressed that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, on marrying `Aisha, never aimed at fulfilling a lust or satisfying a desire; rather, his aim was to strengthen his relation with the most beloved Companion of his.

Had it been true that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, aimed at fulfilling a lust or satisfying a desire, he would have done this while still in his youth when he was still free from the responsibilities of delivering Allah’s call. At his early age, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, accepted to marry Khadija, may Allah be pleased with her, who was 15 years older than him. He also never married a new wife until after her death. Even after her passing away, his new wife Sawdah bint Zam`ah was an old-aged widow who possessed no particular appealing qualities. This adds to our certainty that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, had many great lofty aims behind his marriages. Also, when Khawlah bint Hakim suggested to him to marry`Aisha, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, thought thoroughly whether to accept or to refuse. He took into consideration his relation with Abu Bakr.

When `Aisha reached the Prophet’s house, Sawdah gave her the first place and took care of her till her death.. Afterwards, `Aisha remained a faithful wife to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him; her 10 years of marriage were of the life of a fully dedicated disciple, trainee and scholarly student in the noble Prophetic school. She was the source of knowledge for almost every Companion. She was of the main sources for revealing knowledge and information of the private life of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. She was a big celebrity in politics and the best example of generosity.

The Prophet’s love for `Aisha was a sign of his love for her father. On being asked about the dearest person to his heart, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, mentioned `Aisha. Then, on being asked about the dearest man to him and he, peace and blessings be upon him, mentioned her father, Abu Bakr.

Almighty Allah knows best.
