The Sexual Passions and Perversions of Muhammad

By Ralph H. Sidway

Even though the Koran was supposed to be the pre-eternal and unalterable word of God, many of the "revelations" came at just the right time to help out Muhammad when he wanted to: marry another wife, attack another tribe, refute another interlocutor, etc. Indeed, when many such convenient verses were "revealed", the child-bride Aisha would sharply remark to the "prophet" that, "Verily, your Lord (Allah) is ever quick to fulfill your whims and desires" (Hadith from al-Siyuti, v.6)....

A convenient "revelation" (Sura 33:50) allowed the "prophet" to have as many wives as he wished, though his followers could only have four (Sura 4:3), not counting "what your right hand possesses," that is, slave concubines captured as booty. When looking simply at the authorized hadiths and biographies, one counts that Muhammad had intimate relations with sixty-six females (adult women and young - even pre-pubescent - girls, both wives and concubines). Indeed, Fr. Zakaria Botros rips away the thin veil of piety Muslim apologists rip around Muhammad using Islam's own authorized hadiths and texts: "According to Sirat Al-Halabi, Muhammad can have a woman no matter what, even against her will; and if Muhammad desired a married woman, her husband would have had to divorce her. According to Ibn Sa'ad, who wrote another authorized biographical account of Muhammad, 'The prophet did not die till all women were permitted him'" (Kitab Al Tabaqat Al Kubra, v.8). Muhammad's compulsive preoccupation with women (and indeed, every imaginable sexual perversion) is documented in numerous hadiths, such as this "from Faid al-Qabir (3:371), wherein Muhammad is on record saying, 'My greatest loves are women and perfume: the hungry is satisfied after eating, but I never have enough of women.' Another hadith: 'I can hold back from food and drink, but not from women.'" (Fr. Botros). Indeed, the "prophet" had a rotating schedule to manage his conjugal relations with his wives, and if one of them was not available, he would quickly find one of his concubines with whom to satisfy his urges ("The Prophet was given the sexual strength of thirty men", Bukhari 1:5:268). Muhammad sometimes even had sex with all his wives (eleven or nine, depending on the hadith) sequentially in one night (Bukhari 1:5:268).

This whole thread of "revelations" and authorized hadiths regarding Muhammad's insatiable lust for women and his desert soap-opera harem of wives and concubines (and there is much more and far worse than what we have taken time to survey here) cannot but lead a moral, thinking person inevitably to the unraveling of the entire false tapestry of the Koran and therefore of Islam itself.

As disgraceful as the foregoing references have been, the most obscene and vile claim in any of the recorded sayings of Muhammad must be from a hadith in al-Siyuti (6:395), where Muhammad asserts that: "In heaven, Mary mother of Jesus, will be one of my wives." No Orthodox Christian worthy of the name can regard such filth or the one who utters it with anything less than contempt.
