Mohammad struck child wife Aisha HARD

E-mail Print PDF
Pamela K. TaylorFollowing the beheading (so Islamic!) of his wife by Muzzammil Hassan, 44, the founder of a US Muslim TV network to counter stereotypes of Islam (he certainly proved Islam isn’t good for women) (reference) prominent newspapers did their bit for Islam by publishing ‘Islam is good for women tales’  

PAMELA K. TAYLOR, co-founder, Muslims for Progressive Values wrote such a tale.  I will examine her claims (which do the rounds in Australia) and actual Islamic text and laws in 2 parts –beating women and equality, to reveal the contortions and misinformation used to sell the ‘Islam good’ lie. (reference)
A recent Australian report showed domestic violence, underage marriage and sexual violence/rape, polygamy,  restriction and denial of equal inheritance etc in our Muslim community endorsed by imams/religious clerics (Age 21/11/08   Local Muslim Clerics Accused).  
There’s violent men in every society so why blame Islam?  Why? Because our society and laws do not condone violence against women but Islam’s text and laws do yet here and elsewhere so-called ‘Muslim feminists’ (an oxymoron — I have the right to Poor husband lost his headchoose to be abused) try to tell us Islam’s violence is all due to patriarchy and a few bad  verses (remove those bad verses from the Koran, hadith, sira, laws there wouldn’t be much left particularly if you include the removal of rights to enslave and rape enslaved females-Koran 23.1-7, 70.29-30, 33.50, 4.24 or perhaps they don’t count as women!)
 
Mohammad:  violence to wives, slaves, women generally and others.
Ms Taylor refers to  hadith:
***Muslim Book 30, Number 5756:  'A'isha reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) never beat anyone with his hand, neither a woman nor a servant, but only, in the case when he had been fighting in the cause of Allah and he never took revenge for anything unless the things made inviolable by Allah were made violable; he then took revenge for Allah, the Exalted and Glorious.
Looks good but let’s look a bit closer---perhaps Aisha said this before she got struck or perhaps he struck her with an object but not his hand.  
When Mohammad ordered mass beheadings (a woman was beheaded), assassinations (eg of poetess Marwan as she slept with her children), and had men and women stoned (including a woman who had just given birth), or had his female slaves  flogged or amputated limbs , put hot pokers into eyes and left people to die and many other examples where whole tribes were slaughtered, enslaved, raped, sold etc he wasn’t hitting with his hand but he was responsible for enormous sadism and violence to others particularly when powerful in the last 10 years of his life.  But hey, I guess it’s all fighting in the cause of allah or taking revenge for allah even when Muslim women are the victims because they must be made to obey allah’s dictates.
.
Freedom of choiceTo such a man, whacking a woman is small stuff and I suspect common but only reported when he hit his most favoured wife Aisha who normally got away with anything!

No doubt Hitler never by his own hand killed a Jew, gypsy, homosexual, Russian etc...but..

a)  Mohammad hit child bride Aisha hard in the chest hurting her yet the Ms Taylor’s article claims Mohammad never hit his wives and blatantly ignores the substantial evidence of Mohammad’s violence to women and general sadism.
***Muslim Book 4, Number 2127: (This is a long hadith where Aisha describes how she covered her head, put on her veil, etc and follows Mohammad outside at night to a graveyard and hurries back before him ...)
“..He said: Was it the darkness (of your shadow) that I saw in front of me? I said: Yes. He struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you? ....

b)  Mohammad also allowed others to slap his wives in his presence when they rebelled ( supposedly following his sex with slave Mary)
***Muslim Book 9, No 3506…….Then came 'Umar and he sought permission and it was granted to him, and he found Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) sitting sad and silent with his wives around him. He (Hadrat 'Umar) said: I would say something which would make the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) laugh, so he said: Messenger of Allah, I wish you had seen (the treatment meted out to) the daughter of Khadija when you asked me some money, and I got up and slapped her on her neck.    Allah's Messenger (mav peace be upon him) laughed and said: They are around me as you see, asking for extra money. Abu Bakr (Allah be pleased with him) then got up went to 'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) and slapped her on the neck, and 'Umar stood up before Hafsa and slapped her saying: You ask Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) which he does not possess. They said: By Allah, we do not ask Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) for anything he does not possess. Then he withdrew from them for a month or for twenty-nine days. Then this verse was revealed to him:" Prophet: Say to thy wives... for a mighty reward" (33. 28). ...
After all, it is about protecting women's rights under the divine Islamic law

c)  Beating female slaves is OK too – re the time Aisha was accused of immoral behaviour:
As for Ali he said “Women are plentiful, and you can easily change one for another.  Ask the slave girl; she will tell you the truth.” So the Apostle called Burayra to ask her and  Ali got up and gave her a violent beating, saying, ‘Tell the Apostle the truth.’”  Ishaq:  p 496 “

Mohammad had his female slaves flogged:
***Abu-Dawud Book 38, Number 4458:    ( Basically repeated in *Muslim hadiths Book 17, No. 4224: )
Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib:   A slave-girl belonging to the house of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) committed fornication. He (the Prophet) said: Rush up, Ali, and inflict the prescribed punishment on her. I then hurried up, and saw that blood was flowing from her, and did not stop. So I came to him and he said: Have you finished inflicting (punishment on her)? I said: I went to her while her blood was flowing. He said: Leave her alone till her bleeding stops; then inflict the prescribed punishment on her. And inflict the prescribed punishment on those whom your right hands possess (i.e. slaves).

BEAT  WOMEN: when you read the list of vile terms used to describe women and know the position of women under Islam then and now, instructions to beat women are hardly a surprise.  
The greatest contortions are gone through to try to convince us that instructions to beat women really mean something else yet those instructions occur in the Koran, hadiths, example of Mohammad and Islamic laws where men can beat women for a wide variety of reasons including even ‘fearing’ (not actual) rebellion, refusing sex, answering back, leaving the house without permission, and anything he deems disobedience!

d) The Koran is the highest authority – BEAT women
Sura 4.34  tells men to warn disobedient wives, send them to separate beds then beat them.   There is NO lightly, feathers or toothpicks, added to appeal to the west!  
Ms Taylor gives us a dance around the word ‘daraba’ which is the root verb involved in the critical section of 4.34 namely -   وَاضْرِبُوهُنَّ, wa-id.ribo –hunna.    According to the Hans Wehr Dictionary, daraba means –beat, strike, hit, hurt, wound, shoot, shell, bombard etc .  
If you want to extend the meaning well beyond its usual meaning to cover ‘step between’ or ‘separate’ then daraba must have a PREPOSITION attached eg daraba bayn  meaning to ‘force oneself between’ as in separating people arguing -- BUT IT DOES NOT in 4.34.   Hence the true meaning as used across Arab speakers for 1400 years in Islam is ‘beat, hit’...ie the ‘wa’ means ‘and’, the  ‘idribo’ is the command form, 3rd person plural, masculine ‘beat’, and the ‘hun’ is a feminine ‘them.’    Hence, ‘and beat them.’ (thanks B)
Plays on words to fool westerners are common but when I asked my Arab speaking friends (including Islamic scholars) re this verse in ARABIC, they laughed and said of course it means beat/whip...Remember, the true word of allah is only the Arabic version so it is not forbidden to ‘alter’ translations, particularly if this helps promote Islam.
Eg ALIM CDRom translations
Asad –beat,
Malik-  beat
Pickthall –scourge
Ali- beat

USC site
Yusufali –beat
Pichthall –scourge
Shakir –beat

The free Saudi versionof the Koran also has BEAT

Robert Spencer also includes these :
Al-Hilali/Khan: “(and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful)”
Sher Ali: “and chastise them”
Khalifa: “then you may (as a last alternative) beat them”
Arberry: “and beat them”
Rodwell: “and scourge them”
Sale: “and chastise them”
Daryabadi: "and beat them"

Pickthall, Yusuf Ali, Al-Hilali/Khan, Malik, Shakir, Sher Ali, Khalifa, Daryabadi and Asad are Muslims. Are their translations all "incorrect and offensive"?   (reference)

Note:  chastise means punish, thrash, inflict corporal punishment and scourge means whip, lash etc (Encyclopedic World Dictionary 1971, The Australian concise Oxford Dictionary 1987).

Laleh Bakhtiar, a Muslim woman cited in the Newsweek Washington Post article, Robert Spencer  and elsewhere desperately ‘translates’ 4.34 as ‘go away from them’ so we are all supposed to believe that all the ‘authorities’ and translators plus all those law writers over centuries got it wrong!  Reality-western Muslim women trapped in Islam, must suffer extreme cognitive dissonance –yet seem incapable of behaving rationally and dumping this vile ideology!

Job was told to strike his wife-koran sura 38.44.

Ms Taylor gives us a dance around the word ‘daraba’ which is the root verb involved in the critical section of 4.34 namely -   وَاضْرِبُوهُنَّ, wa-id.ribo –hunna, but true Islamic scholars strongly disagree with this linguistic acrobatics. 

e)  Hadith –Mohammad over-rides ‘don’t beat’ and says men can BEAT women.  
Ms Taylor cites a hadith from Abu Dawud book 11, No 2139 which says don’t beat but had she read any further she would discover that the text was over-ridden by Mohammad’s new instruction to beat women, (plus his revelation from allah of sura 4.34).  Women who complain of their treatment aren’t the best of women! Did she fall asleep or is she relying on our ignorance?
***Abu-Dawud Book 11, Number 2141: Narrated Abdullah ibn AbuDhubab:
Iyas ibn Abdullah ibn AbuDhubab reported the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) as saying: Do not beat Allah's handmaidens, but when Umar came to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) and said: Women have become emboldened towards their husbands, he (the Prophet) gave permission to BEAT them. Then many women came round the family of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) complaining against their husbands. So the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: Many women have gone round Muhammad's family complaining against their husbands. They are not the best among you.
***Abu Dawud  Book 11, Number 2142: Narrated Umar ibn al-Khattab:
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he BEAT his wife.
***Tirmidhi 104:  Narrated Amr ibn al-Ahwas al-Jushami :
Amr heard the Prophet (peace be upon him) say in his farewell address on the eve of his Last Pilgrimage, after he had glorified and praised Allah, he cautioned his followers: 'Listen! Treat women kindly; they are like prisoners in your hands. Beyond this you do not owe anything from them. Should they be guilty of flagrant misbehaviour, you may remove them from your beds, and BEAT them....... (he says re women’s rights..)...Their right is that you should treat them well in the matter of food and clothing.  (ALIM CDRom)

Mohammad’s first biography reports Mohammad’s speech where he says men can beat women, women are prisoners with NO CONTROL of their persons, if they behave they have a right to food and clothing with ‘kindness’ and men have the right to enjoy their persons. (Ishaq P 651).  Other reports call women ‘domestic animals.’   

NOTE:   Islamic ‘kindness’ doesn’t mean don’t beat or lash!!
***Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 466: ...The Prophet then mentioned about the women (in his sermon). "It is not wise for anyone of you to lash his wife like a slave, for he might sleep with her the same evening."
Ie. -  beat her but not quite as viciously as you beat your slaves---lovely!

No wonder Aisha noted that ‘believing women suffered the most- then and today, aided by the dishonesty of Muslim women endorsing Islam.
***Bukhari Volume 7, Book 72, Number 715:   Narrated 'Ikrima: Rifa'a divorced his wife whereupon 'AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. 'Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah's Apostle came, 'Aisha said, "I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!" ....
f) Laws:  Reliance of the Traveller:A classic manual of Islamic sacred law by Misri, translated by Keller (westernized version)
Eg M10.12  p 540-542--long law but, when a man sees signs of rebellion etc…eg wife doesn't want to come to bed, or wife not kind, leaves the house without permission, doesn’t obey or provide sex. etc  he must warn her, not sleep with her 'and may hit her but not in a way that injures her, meaning …break bones, wound her or cause blood to flow. (O: It is unlawful to strike another's face)  He may hit her whether she is rebellious only once or whether more than once..'   Also law o17.4 p619.

There are many other laws allowing beating, hitting, flogging...Remember Muslims can BEAT CHILDREN from the age of 10 if they fail to perform the prayer (Reliance, f1.2  p109,  Abu Dawud hadith book 2, nos 494, 495) so why not beat women!!
***Abu Dawud Book 2, Number 494: Narrated As-Saburah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Command a boy to pray when he reaches the age of seven years. When he becomes ten years old, then beat him for prayer.
g)  Ms Taylor gives us a tale of Mohammad who when having problems with his wives, admonished them, refrained from sleeping with them for a month but didn’t go the final step and hit them.  Some text relating to the tale is in part b (Muslim book 9 No. 3506) above where others slappeThe Divine Law for Womend Mohammad’s wives.   The tale incorporates text from the Koran, hadith and sira.   Mohammad was given the slave and concubine, Mary who bore him a son  (Ishaq p 653,  p711 point 129).  A story claims Mohammad had sex  (inappropriate time or place) with Mary and his wife Hafsa discovered this and told Aisha then all the wives knew, causing trouble so Mohammad threatens to divorce his wives and ‘finds comfort elsewhere’ for a month!.    
Lucky Mohammad got a revelation from allah telling him that he (and all men) could revoke promises to his wives, have sex with his slaves and divorce his wives if they complained.  Allah even rebuked Mohammad for denying himself what he liked and was lawful (remember sex with slaves is lawful).
***Koran sura 66.1-5 Sura Tahrim (Banning)
1. O Prophet! Why do you ban (for yourself) that which Allâh has made lawful to you, seeking to please your wives? And Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
2. Allâh has already ordained for you (O men), the dissolution of your oaths. And Allâh is your Maula (Lord, or Master, or Protector, etc.) and He is the All-Knower, the All-Wise.
3. And (remember) when the Prophet disclosed a matter in confidence to one of his wives (Hafsah), so when she told it (to another i.e. 'Aishah), and Allâh made it known to him, he informed part thereof and left a part. Then when he told her (Hafsah) thereof, she said: "Who told you this?" He said: "The All-Knower, the All-Aware (Allâh) has told me".
4. If you two ('Aishah and Hafsah)  turn in repentance to Allâh, (it will be better for you), your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet likes), but if you help one another against him, then verily, Allâh is his Maula (Lord, or Master, or Protector, etc.), and Jibrael (Gabriel), and the righteous among the believers, and furthermore, the angels are his helpers.
5. It may be if he divorced you (all) that his Lord will give him instead of you, wives better than you, Muslims (who submit to Allâh), believers, obedient to Allâh, turning to Allâh in repentance, worshipping Allâh sincerely, fasting or emigrants (for Allâh's sake), previously married and virgins.
 
Many hadith note the the fuss and Mohammad’s threats to divorce his wives and express shock that any female would challenge Mohammad. (*Bukhari Volume 3, Book 43, Number 648: (also vol 6 book 60 No. 435, 436, 437, 438;  * Muslim Book 9 Nos. 3498-3511)

The stories are long but Bukhari 3/43/648 notes Mohammad’s black slave, the shock that any women could challenge Mohammad, the statement that"   “We, the people of Quraish, used to have authority over women, but when we came to live with the Ansar, we noticed that the Ansari women had the upper hand over their men, so our women started acquiring the habits of the Ansari women.” And notes that Mohammad didn’t go to his wives for 29 days but finally went to Aisha and offered her the glitter of this world (presumably divorce) or allah, his apostle and a home in the hereafter... ...

Mohammad 'revealed' text that applied extra pressure/threats on his wives to never challenge him, particularly if they want to reach paradise!! – ie if you desire this world (Koran 33.28) but if you desire allah, Mohammad, the latter abode ( Koran 33.29) and are OBEDIENT, you will be doubly rewarded (Koran 33.31) otherwise:
***Koran 33.30
 O wives of the prophet! whoever of you commits an open indecency, the punishment shall be increased to her doubly; and this is EASY to Allah.
Koran sura 33.53 also says no-one can marry Mohammad’s wives so these women would have been in a very difficult situation if they didn’t have support from parents or a husband and they would have been outcasts.  Mohammad didn’t need to beat them here as others slapped them, others were shocked and Mohammad could threaten with revelations from allah.  His wives were trapped into obedience and he could do as he liked.   But Mohammad/allah kindly gave lesser men the right to beat/scourge their wives.

This story shows a very nasty, selfish, threatening Mohammad.   Muslims try to claim the fuss was all over Mohammad eating ‘honey’ (Muslim book 9 No. 3496),) at someone else’s house – of course eating honey would cause such a fuss.  (see Ali Sima ‘Trial of Mohammad www.faithfreedom.org,  ‘Mary sex slave of Mohammad’ with discussion of honey and other interesting findings (reference) and a long discussion of all possibilities and excuses at Answering Islam.


h) Finally Ms Taylor reveals that she does indeed know that Islam supports the beating/scourging of women as twice she claims that the imams are really promoting a  ‘calm, reasoned, and limited physical punishment’ and astonishingly writes:
“Domestic violence activists have long insisted that domestic violence is not about out-of-control anger, it is about controlling the life of one's spouse ....... They usually hit women in places where bruises and cuts will not be visible, ..... in the middle of beating up their wife, if the phone rings, or police come to the door, the abuser is able to shut down his supposed rage, appearing and sounding calm and reasonable.”
Abuse is so much better when the man is calm.  Her description of the abuser fits Islam perfectly –as text says don’t hit the face and demands that women cover from head to toe (hiding the bruises!)
***Abu Dawud book 11, Number 2137: Narrated Mu'awiyah al-Qushayri:
Mu'awiyah asked: Apostle of Allah, what is the right of the wife of one of us over him? He replied: That you should give her food when you eat, clothe her when you clothe yourself, do not strike her on the face, do not revile her or separate yourself from her except in the house.
 Rania al Baz
Imams today support beating women: eg undercover mosque 2007, youtube (lots) and in Australia 2009 (read Rudd’s and Muslim cover-up lies for Islam HERE).  Scholar and Spanish Islamic leader Muhammad Kamal Mustafa’s  book called, "Women in Islam", openly instructs how a man should beat his wife (Spanish Women’s Fury at Islamic Advice’BBC, 24, July 2000).  Ayan Hirsi Ali a Dutch exMuslim woman now in the US fled Holland after revealing the violence of Muslim men in Holland in 2002.  In Victoria Australia a Muslim woman accused of arson and insurance fraud, claimed  she had to obey her husband or he would beat her as the Koran allowed or throw her out of home again!(aap general news 28/5/02 also reports 2003)

If you don’t want to be beaten to pieces like female Saudi presenter Rania al-Baz who needed 13 operations following the beating from hubby for answering the phone (he regularly beat her) (Age, 7/7/04 Melb Australia) then don’t join Islam with its huge collection of derogatory terms, abuse, violence and control of females.  Yes you could still marry a mean male anyway but at least he’s committing a crime but in Islam, violence to women is a right given by allah, Mohammad, text and laws!

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.
