The more you read about Islam and Prophet Muhammad, more you feel disgusted. Prophet of Islam is the only Prophet even as per the Islamic books, who was without any miracles. But I think he is the only prophet who suffered from head lice. Allah is the only creator of the universe who could not cure his only prophet of the head lice. Even after the award of so called prophet hood, Prophet Muhammad had been suffering from head lice. Sometimes his wives helped him in getting rid of them and sometimes he helped himself. Most astonishingly Allah, the exalted, revealed a verse in the Quran to introduce the amazing solution for the problem of head lice. Its not the easy one, but it involves sacrifice, fasting and other complicated things, it was such a huge issue at that time. 
How foolish is to follow a prophet who's God could not cure him of his head lice. Now think about it for a moment, How sacred are those lice who sucked the blood of Prophet Muhammad. If Muslims could get their hands on them, they might have eaten them alive. Now lets read a few ahadith, regardless of the point of discussion in the hadith, we would only notice how women are helping prophet in getting rid of head lice.

Narrated Zaynab:
She was picking lice from the head of the Messenger of Allah while the wife of Uthman ibn Affan and the immigrant women were with him. They complained about their houses that they had been narrowed down to them and they were evicted from them. The Messenger of Allah ordered that the houses of the Immigrants should be given to their wives. Thereafter Abdullah ibn Mas'ud died, and his wife inherited his house in Medina.(Sunan Abi Dawood 3080, Book Reference: Book 20, Hadith 153, English Translation : Book 19, Hadith 3074)

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Messenger used to visit Um Haram bint Milhan she was the wife of 'Ubada bin As-Samit. One day the Prophet visited her and she provided him with food and started looking for lice in his head. Then Allah's Messenger  slept and afterwards woke up smiling. Um Haram asked, "What makes you smile, O Allah's Messenger ?" He said, "Some of my followers were presented before me in my dream as fighters in Allah's Cause, sailing in the middle of the seas like kings on the thrones or like kings sitting on their thrones." (The narrator 'Is-haq is not sure as to which expression was correct). Um Haram added, 'I said, "O Allah's Messenger ! Invoke Allah, to make me one of them;" So Allah's Messenger  invoked Allah for her and then laid his head down (and slept). Then he woke up smiling (again). (Um Haram added): I said, "What makes you smile, O Allah's Messenger ?" He said, "Some people of my followers were presented before me (in a dream) as fighters in Allah's Cause." He said the same as he had said before. I said, "O Allah's Messenger ! Invoke Allah to make me from them." He said, "You are among the first ones." Then Um Haram sailed over the sea during the Caliphate of Muawiya bin Abu Sufyan, and she fell down from her riding animal after coming ashore, and died. (Sahih Bukhari 7001,7001, Book Reference: Book 91, Hadith 20, English Reference : Vol.9, Book 87, Hadith 130)

The personal solution of the Prophet Muhammad was to get the lice picked by someone or to wear silk garments, so that he could catch the lice falling on his silk garments by hands and throw or kill them. Other than this reason wearing silk garments was and is haram for Muslims( Silly). Lets see how beloved child wife of Prophet Muhammad narrates about him.

'Amrah Radiyallahu 'Anha reports that someone asked 'Aayeshah Radiyallahu 'Anha. "What was the usual practice of Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam at home?" She replied:
"He was a human from among other humans. He himself removed the lice from his clothing, milked his goats, and did all his work himself".( Shumail e Muhammadiya, English Reference : Book 46, Hadith 325, Arabic reference : Book 47, Hadith 342)

Allah's only apostle visited kaab bin umra while he was suffering from head lice, so Allah, the exalted, revealed a verse for kaab bin umra, which Allah could not reveal regarding Muhammad's own problem of head lice. I think those lice must be Muslims, as they sucked the holy blood of Prophet of Islam, Just like Muslims as they suck the welfare money out of the tax paid by the western nations in the western countries and by chance if they are not living in the west then they can get the money from IMF or World Bank. Lets read.
Narrated Ka`b bin `Umra:
Allah's Messenger stood beside me at Al-Hudaibiya and the lice were falling from my head in great number. He asked me, "Have your lice troubled you?" I replied in the affirmative. He ordered me to get my head shaved. Ka`b added, "This Holy Verse:--'And if any of you is ill, or has ailment in his scalp (2.196), etc. was revealed regarding me. "The Prophet then ordered me either to fast three days, or to feed six poor persons with one Faraq (three Sas) (of dates), or to slaughter a sheep, etc. (sacrifice) whatever was available( Sahih Al Bukhari, 1815, Book Reference: Book 27, Hadith 10, English Reference: Vol.3, Book 28, haidth 42)

The verse of Quran which has been mentioned in this hadith is Chapter 2 verse 196. For your interest, I am mentiong the same here along with tafsir( Commentary ) 


And complete the Hajj and 'umrah for Allah . But if you are prevented, then [offer] what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals. And do not shave your heads until the sacrificial animal has reached its place of slaughter. And whoever among you is ill or has an ailment of the head [making shaving necessary must offer] a ransom of fasting [three days] or charity or sacrifice. And when you are secure, then whoever performs 'umrah [during the Hajj months] followed by Hajj [offers] what can be obtained with ease of sacrificial animals. And whoever cannot find [or afford such an animal] - then a fast of three days during Hajj and of seven when you have returned [home]. Those are ten complete [days]. This is for those whose family is not in the area of al-Masjid al-Haram. And fear Allah and know that Allah is severe in penalty.

Tafsir Ibn Abbas gives us the commentary on the specific part of this verse relating to the head problem in this manner.

if his head is infested with lice, he should shave it. This verse was revealed about Ka'b Ibn 'Ujrah who shaved his hair when still in a state of ritual consecration because it was infested with lice, (must pay ransom of fasting) the ransom is to fast three days (or almsgiving) to six needy people from the inhabitants of Mecca (or offering) a sheep to be sent to the place of immolation.

What to say about all this nonsense, It goes beyond this harmless nonsense attitude to the extent where Islam starts to harm people belonging to other religions. 

This nonsense must be stopped and confronted at every level, I am putting my effort into it, you have to put yours. Stay safe and blessed.
