I was reading a news item published by "Daily Star", UK which said that ISIS made rape a part of their ideology as Quran promotes raping non-believer women. you can read the news item here

Another similar news item says that 
"He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God," a 12-year-old rape victim told The New York Times. 

And a small video

Earlier I used to believe that all the Jihadi Groups are mis-interpreting Quran and Quran does not promote violence or rape. But later on as my understanding of Quran improved and I started studying Quran then it became disturbingly clear for me, because Quran was nothing like I used to believe it was. I found it completely opposite to  my previous beliefs, full of enmity and hatred for the non-believers which I used to believe were the creatures of Allah. My beliefs were simple that all the humans /non-humans are the creation of Allah and Allah does not discriminate among them as He provides food to everyone, he showers rain on believer's  or non believers' crops equally. He wants every living being to survive till the time determined by Him. But Allah is nothing like that , Allah hates non-believers (Quran 3.32) ,Allah curses Jews and Christians (Quran 9.30), Allah orders Muslims to kill non-believers(Quran 9.29) this idea of cursing, hating and ordering Muslims to kill non-believers is completely opposite to the reality that can be seen in the world. If Allah does not want non-believers to live then why is He feeding them, providing them with food, raining on their crops supporting the Christians to be the leaders of the world in all kind of development while on the other hand Allah is not supporting His own followers which causes them to stay behind on the development scores. If everything is in control of Allah then he can do anything but it turns out that Allah is unable to control anything thus relieves himself of the anger  by cursing non-believers and ordering Muslims to kill them Meaning thereby Allah is dependent on the actions of his followers in order to affect the world at large. Whenever you go to any mosque to offer prayers, you will find the imaam (One who leads the prayers)  inciting and provoking Muslims to take stand and confront non-believers in the fulfillment of duty ordained by Allah on every Muslim, why, because once again, Allah is dependent on Muslims in order to cause a change in the world.

This went a little out of context but its was suffocating me from inside so i am letting it out as a food for thought for everyone. Now coming back to the topic of the day.

1)Rape of  Non Believer Women in Prophet Muhammad's Time 
In the times of Prophet Muhammad it was a routine matter for Muslims to attack Jewish or Christian communities and Rape their women or enslave them. 

Abu Sa’id Al Khudri said “The Apostle of Allaah sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of Apostle of Allaah  were reluctant to have relations with the female captives because of their pagan husbands. So, Allaah the exalted sent down the Qur’anic verse “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hand posses.” This is to say that they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period.( Sunan Abi Dawood 2155, Book Reference : Book.12 Hadith.110, English Translation :Book 11, Hadith 2150)

In this hadith, The Quanic verse which has been mentioned, allowing Muslims to have relations with captive women, is  Chapter 4 verse 24 which says something like this..


And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right hands possess(captive women). [This is] the decree of Allah upon you. And lawful to you are [all others] beyond these, [provided] that you seek them [in marriage] with [gifts from] your property,desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse. So for whatever you enjoy [of marriage] from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.

In This Video you can see the ISIS fighter starting from the same verse of quran 

Another hadith
Abu Sa'id al-Khudri (Allah her pleased with him) reported that at the Battle of Hanain Allah's Messenger sent an army to Autas and encountered the enemy and fought with them. Having overcome them and taken them captives, the Companions of Allah's Messenger (may peace te upon him) seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being polytheists. Then Allah, Most High, sent down regarding that:
" And women already married, except those whom your right hands possess (iv. 24)" (i. e. they were lawful for them when their 'Idda period came to an end).( Sahih Muslim 1456 a, Book Reference : Book 17 , Hadith 41 , English Reference :Book 8, Hadith 3432)

2)Coitus Interruptus with Captive Women
Coitus Interruptus means when someone withdraws the penis before discharge of semen in order to avoid pregnancy.  Now i am gonna mention a hadith in which Muslims invaders were desiring ransom for the women and that's why intending to have coitus interrupus with them.
Muhairiz said “I entered the mosque and saw Abu Sa’id Al Khudri . I sat with him and asked about withdrawing the penis (while having intercourse). Abu Sa’id said We went out with the Apostle of Allaah on the expedition to Banu Al Mustaliq and took some Arab women captive and we desired the women for we were suffering from the absence of our wives and we wanted ransom, so we intended to withdraw the penis (while having intercourse with the slave women). But we asked ourselves “can we draw the penis when the Apostle of Allaah is among us before asking him about it? So we asked him about it. He said “it does not matter if you do not do it, for very soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.”( Sunan Abu Dawood 2172, Book Reference : Book 12 , Haidth 127, English Reference: Book 11, Haidth 2167)
Same Narration is mentioned in another book as 
Narrated Ibn Muhairiz:
I entered the Mosque and saw Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri and sat beside him and asked him about Al-Azl (i.e. coitus interruptus). Abu Sa`id said, "We went out with Allah's Messenger for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So when we intended to do coitus interrupt us, we said, 'How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allah's Messenger who is present among us?" We asked (him) about it and he said, 'It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul (till the Day of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist."( Sahih Bukhari 4138 , Book Reference : Book 64, Hadith 182, English Reference: Vol.5, Book 59 , Hadith 459)

3)Prophet Muhammad and Safiya
Safiya was the wife of prophet who belonged to a Jewish tribe, During the fight of khaiber, she was captured by the Muslims, along with other women. Her husband was kiled by the Muslims. Her beauty inspired the Prophet Muhammad so much the on his way back from khaiber , in the same night, Prophet Muhammad consummated the marriage. In the civilized world, its called rape, but in the times and according to the teachings of prophet it was marriage.

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
We arrived at Khaibar, and when Allah helped His Apostle to open the fort, the beauty of Safiya bint Huyai bin Akhtaq whose husband had been killed while she was a bride, was mentioned to Allah's Apostle. The Prophet selected her for himself, and set out with her, and when we reached a place called Sidd-as-Sahba,' Safiya became clean from her menses then Allah's Messenger married her. Hais (i.e. an 'Arabian dish) was prepared on a small leather mat. Then the Prophet said to me, "I invite the people around you." So that was the marriage banquet of the Prophet and Safiya. Then we proceeded towards Medina, and I saw the Prophet, making for her a kind of cushion with his cloak behind him (on his camel). He then sat beside his camel and put his knee for Safiya to put her foot on, in order to ride (on the camel).(Sahih Bukhari 4211 Book Reference: Book 64 , Hadith 251 , English Reference :Vol.5 , Book 59 , Hadith 522)

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The Prophet stayed with Safiya bint Huyai for three days on the way of Khaibar where he consummated his marriage with her. Safiya was amongst those who were ordered to use a veil.( Sahih Bukhari 4212 , Book Reference : book 64, hadith 252, English Reference : Vol.5, Book. 59, hadith.523)

4)Prophet Muhammad And Female Slave, Maria 
Prophet Muhammad had a female slave with whom he used to have sex ( Don't forget war captives were used as slaves ) While his wives, Hafsa and Aisha, didn't like that and once he made a pact with his wives that he will not have sex with Maria again but then Allah sent the revelation that why do you forbid yourself from what Allah has allowed for you. Below mentioned is the Hadith and the related verse of Quran

It was narrated from Anas, that the Messenger of Allah had a female slave with whom he had intercourse, but 'Aishah and Hafsah would not leave him alone until he said that she was forbidden for him. Then Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, revealed:
"O Prophet! Why do you forbid (for yourself) that which Allah has allowed to you.' until the end of the Verse.( Sunan Nisai 3959 , Book Reference : Book 36, Hadith 21, English Reference: Vol.4, Book 36, Hadith 3411)

Quran 66 Verse 1


O Prophet, why do you prohibit [yourself from] what Allah has made lawful for you, seeking the approval of your wives? And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

Tafsir Jalalyn's Commentary on  Quran 66.1
O Prophet! Why do you prohibit what God has made lawful for you, in terms of your Coptic handmaiden Māriya — when he lay with her in the house of Hafsa, who had been away, but who upon returning [and finding out] became upset by the fact that this had taken place in her own house and on her own bed — by saying, ‘She is unlawful for me!’, seeking, by making her unlawful [for you], to please your wives? And God is Forgiving, Merciful, having forgiven you this prohibition.

5)Allah Admonished Wives of Prophet for Restraining him from Sex with Maria.

Allah got angry and admonished Prophet Muhammad for making a pact to refrain from sex with maria. Allah also admonished wives of prophet, Hafsa and Aisha, for restraining him from having sex with Maria. Because of this admonishment, Prophet stayed away from his wives for one month as a punishment for them. Below mentioned hadith is long but narrates the details of this incident.

Narrated `Abdullah bin `Abbas:
I had been eager to ask `Umar about the two ladies from among the wives of the Prophet regarding whom Allah said (in the Qur'an saying): If you two (wives of the Prophet namely Aisha and Hafsa) turn in repentance to Allah your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet likes) (66.4), till performed the Hajj along with `Umar (and on our way back from Hajj) he went aside (to answer the call of nature) and I also went aside along with him carrying a tumbler of water. When he had answered the call of nature and returned. I poured water on his hands from the tumbler and he performed ablution. I said, "O Chief of the believers! ' Who were the two ladies from among the wives of the Prophet to whom Allah said: 'If you two return in repentance (66.4)? He said, "I am astonished at your question, O Ibn `Abbas. They were Aisha and Hafsa." Then `Umar went on relating the narration and said. "I and an Ansari neighbor of mine from Bani Umaiya bin Zaid who used to live in `Awali Al-Medina, used to visit the Prophet in turns. He used to go one day, and I another day. When I went I would bring him the news of what had happened that day regarding the instructions and orders and when he went, he used to do the same for me. 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. Once I shouted at my wife and she paid me back in my coin and I disliked that she should answer me back. She said, 'Why do you take it ill that I retort upon you? By Allah, the wives of the Prophet retort upon him, and some of them may not speak with him for the whole day till night.' What she said scared me and I said to her, 'Whoever amongst them does so, will be a great loser.' Then I dressed myself and went to Hafsa and asked her, 'Does any of you keep Allah's Messenger angry all the day long till night?' She replied in the affirmative. I said, 'She is a ruined losing person (and will never have success)! Doesn't she fear that Allah may get angry for the anger of Allah's Messenger and thus she will be ruined? Don't ask Allah's Messenger too many things, and don't retort upon him in any case, and don't desert him. Demand from me whatever you like, and don't be tempted to imitate your neighbor (i.e. `Aisha) in her behavior towards the Prophet), for she (i.e. Aisha) is more beautiful than you, and more beloved to Allah's Messenger. In those days it was rumored that Ghassan, (a tribe living in Sham) was getting prepared their horses to invade us. My companion went (to the Prophet on the day of his turn, went and returned to us at night and knocked at my door violently, asking whether I was sleeping. I was scared (by the hard knocking) and came out to him. He said that a great thing had happened. I asked him: What is it? Have Ghassan come? He replied that it was worse and more serious than that, and added that Allah's Apostle had divorced all his wives. I said, Hafsa is a ruined loser! I expected that would happen some day.' So I dressed myself and offered the Fajr prayer with the Prophet. Then the Prophet entered an upper room and stayed there alone. I went to Hafsa and found her weeping. I asked her, 'Why are you weeping? Didn't I warn you? Have Allah's Messenger divorced you all?' She replied, 'I don't know. He is there in the upper room.' I then went out and came to the pulpit and found a group of people around it and some of them were weeping. Then I sat with them for some time, but could not endure the situation. So I went to the upper room where the Prophet was and requested to a black slave of his: "Will you get the permission of (Allah's Apostle) for `Umar (to enter)? The slave went in, talked to the Prophet about it and came out saying, 'I mentioned you to him but he did not reply.' So, I went and sat with the people who were sitting by the pulpit, but I could not bear the situation, so I went to the slave again and said: "Will you get he permission for `Umar? He went in and brought the same reply as before. When I was leaving, behold, the slave called me saying, "Allah's Messenger has granted you permission." So, I entered upon the Prophet and saw him lying on a mat without wedding on it, and the mat had left its mark on the body of the Prophet, and he was leaning on a leather pillow stuffed with palm fires. I greeted him and while still standing, I said: "Have you divorced your wives?' He raised his eyes to me and replied in the negative. And then while still standing, I said chatting: "Will you heed what I say, 'O Allah's Messenger! We, the people of Quraish used to have the upper hand over our women (wives), and when we came to the people whose women had the upper hand over them..." `Umar told the whole story (about his wife). "On that the Prophet  smiled." `Umar further said, "I then said, 'I went to Hafsa and said to her: Do not be tempted to imitate your companion (`Aisha) for she is more beautiful than you and more beloved to the Prophet.' The Prophet smiled again. When I saw him smiling, I sat down and cast a glance at the room, and by Allah, I couldn't see anything of importance but three hides. I said (to Allah's Messenger "Invoke Allah to make your followers prosperous for the Persians and the Byzantines have been made prosperous and given worldly luxuries, though they do not worship Allah?' The Prophet was leaning then (and on hearing my speech he sat straight) and said, 'O Ibn Al-Khattab! Do you have any doubt (that the Hereafter is better than this world)? These people have been given rewards of their good deeds in this world only.' I asked the Prophet. 'Please ask Allah's forgiveness for me. The Prophet did not go to his wives because of the secret which Hafsa had disclosed to `Aisha, and he said that he would not go to his wives for one month as he was angry with them when Allah admonished him (for his oath that he would not approach Maria). When twenty-nine days had passed, the Prophet went to Aisha first of all. She said to him, 'You took an oath that you would not come to us for one month, and today only twenty-nine days have passed, as I have been counting them day by day.' The Prophet said, 'The month is also of twenty-nine days.' That month consisted of twenty-nine days. `Aisha said, 'When the Divine revelation of Choice was revealed, the Prophet started with me, saying to me, 'I am telling you something, but you need not hurry to give the reply till you can consult your parents." `Aisha knew that her parents would not advise her to part with the Prophet . The Prophet said that Allah had said: 'O Prophet! Say To your wives; If you desire The life of this world And its glitter, ... then come! I will make a provision for you and set you free In a handsome manner. But if you seek Allah And His Apostle, and The Home of the Hereafter, then Verily, Allah has prepared For the good-doers amongst you A great reward.' (33.28) `Aisha said, 'Am I to consult my parents about this? I indeed prefer Allah, His Apostle, and the Home of the Hereafter.' After that the Prophet gave the choice to his other wives and they also gave the same reply as `Aisha did."( Sahih Bukhari 2468, Book Reference : Book 46, Hadith 29, English Reference : Vol.3, Book 43, Hadith 648)


When Allah has ordained in Quran to abuse the war captives and the Prophet Muhammad has been fulfilling that order wholeheartedly, then how can the followers of the prophet would refrain from that. This is ordained by Quran to rape non-believer women. Because Allah hates non-believers regardless of their Gender. So its allowed for believer men to rape non-believer women because they are lesser humans and the worst of creatures (Quran 98.6).

  1. Howdy! This post couldn't be written any better!

    Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate!

    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this page to

  2. When islam decides to develop and include tolerance, freedom and acceptance while rejecting violence and scripturally enforced ignorance, it will make progress. As is, a survey of islamic nations is the best recommendation to prevent any islamic influence on any one valuing freedom and the individual. MJ from Disqus
