The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) recently launched a new campaign to shine the dark picture of Islam and its founder Muhammad. They used billboards to invite people to visit their web site and offered Free DVDs.


The following essay is a contribution from “” to help CAIR finding just very few testimonies they will certainly miss!



No extensive comments will be made in this essay as it will mainly contain excerpts from the main three Islamic books: the Quran, The Hadith,The Sira, and some other Islamic references.


Muhammad was not only a charlatan prophet but also a bandit, terrorist, savage murderer, thief, liar, and morally corrupt person.


I urge the Muslims who feel insulted by the above description of their "prophet" to go back to their books.



Muhammad was a terrorist by his own admission:

He said: "I have been made victorious by means of terror!", "Booty has been made lawful for me yet it was not lawful for anybody before me." (Hadith Bukhari)


He said: "I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against all people until they testify that god but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle, and offer the prayers and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their blood and possessions from me.." (Hadith Bukhari)


He instructed his followers to terrorize the world:

"Against them [the unbelievers] make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom you may not know, but whom Allah does know. Whatever you shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly." (Quran 8:60)


He instructed his followers to kill the infidels wherever they find them:

"So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful." (Quran 9:5)


His barbaric punishment for “enemies” whom he himself had created:

"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement" (Quran 129:5)


He said he was sent to slaughter people:

"By Him who holds my soul in his hands, I was sent to you with slaughter!" (Hadith)



He instructs his followers to bring people to Islam by force:

"You are the best of people for mankind, you bring them in the chains that are around their necks until they enter Islam." (Hadith)


He urges his followers to war:

"O Prophet! Urge the believers to war; if there are twenty patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand." (Quran 8:65)


He instructs the killing of those who choose to abandon his gang:

"If they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper." (Quran 4:89)

He also said: "If someone changes his religion, strike his neck!" (Hadith)



Muhammad was an assassin, murderer, and a barbaric killer:


- He assassinated a 120 years old man:

Abu Afak was a very old Jewish man, reputably at 120 years of age. He composed a few verses of poetry criticizing Muhammad for killing someone he knew. When Muhammad learned about the poem, he called his gang members and said to them: "Who will deal with this rascal for me?" So, one of them volunteered and went forth and killed him. (Sirat Ibn Ishaq: The life of the Prophet by Ibn Ishaq) 


- He assassinated a nursing mother:

A woman called Asma’ Bint Marwan (Asma’ the daughter of Marwan) wrote a few verses criticizing Muhammad for the killing of Abu Afak. When Muhammad heard what she had called his gang members and said to them: "Who will rid me of Marwan's daughter?" 

One of his clans “Umayr Ibn Adi” volunteered.  He went to her in the night and entered her house.  Her children were sleeping around her, and there was one whom she was suckling.  He searched her with his hand because he was blind, and separated the child from her.  He thrust his sword in her chest till it pierced up to her back.  Then he offered the morning prayers with Muhammad.  After the prayer Muhammad said to him:  "Have you slain the daughter of Marwan?" He said: "Yes. Is there something more for me to do?"  He [Muhammad] said:  "No two goats will butt together about her.” 

(Assira Annabawiyah, Ibn Hisham: The life of the Prophet by Ibn Hisham) 



- He sent one of his gang people to assassinate his brother


Ka'b Bin Al Ashraf, a Jew, was another critic of Muhammad.

"Who is willing to kill Ka`b bin al-Ashraf who has hurt Allah and His apostle?", said the so called prophet of Allah!

One of Muhammad's gang members volunteered and said:  "O Allah's messenger! Would you like that I kill him?" And the charlatan prophet said, "Yes".

Muhammad appointed Maslama as the head of a group of four to assassinate Ka'b. On of the four was Ka'b's foster brother!

When the gang members arrived to Ka'b's house, they used his brother to deceive and convince him to get out.  They killed him and brought his head to their master and cast it before him. Muhammad praised Allah and congratulated them.

(Hadith and Sira) 



- He ordered the killing of an old woman by ripping her apart.

Umm Qirfa, Fatima, was a very old women. She was known in Arabia as a woman with great honor and pride. Muhammad claimed that she was planning on killing him, so he sent his gang members to attack her village lead by Zayd Bin haritha. The lady was captured and ordered to be killed by ripping her body apart. 

They tied a rope to each of her legs then tied the other end to two strong camels, they whipped the camels, driving them to pull with their greatest force. The body of the poor woman was ripped apart. Praised to be Allah and peace be upon his merciful prophet.


The executioner appointed by Zayd 'tied each of her legs with a rope and tied the ropes to camels, and they split her in two.' (Tabari)
