Did Prophet Muhammad massacre the tribe of “Bani Al-Mustaliq?

Christian Prince the fantastic


scholar of Christianity is claiming that the so called massacre of “Bani Mustaliq”
Was worse than the massacre of the masjid in Christchurch, New Zealand


And he also claims that women of “Bani Al-Mustaliq” were raped
Lets look at his claims.


And then I will bust all his false claims with evidences.Proving that it was nothing but a complete hoax taken out of context.


So he claims that Prophet Muhammad killed all the tribe of “Bani Al-Mustaliq”


And he is showing this hadith from Sahih Al-Bukhari which says:

Narrated Ibn Aun: I wrote a letter to Nafi and Nafiwrote in reply to my letter that the Prophet (peace be upon him) had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet ( peace be upon him ) got Juwairiya on that day. Nafi said that Ibn Umar had told him the above narration and that IbnUmar was in that army. [1]
Sahih Al-Bukhari, Book 49, Hadith 25

This means that he killed their fighting men.
He killed fighting men.


Fighting from fight
They were warrior men not some innocent civilians who are minding their own business
And he didn’t kill all the tribe as this joker claims


It means that the tribe of Bani Al-Mustaliq was preparing for a war against Muslims
The tribe of “Bani Al-Mustaliq” were watering their animals to prepare for marching against Muslims

And even “Ibn Ishaq” confirms this in his biography page 439 [2]

News reached the Messenger of Allah that “Bani Al-Mustaliq” were gathering (army) against him, and their leader was “Dirar ” the father of “Juwayriya Bint Al-Harith”, the wife of the messenger of Allah. So when the messenger of Allah heard about them, he went to meat them (for battle) until he met them at a water place which belongs to them called “Al-Murayse’ “.

So people marched against each other and fought, and Allah defeated Bani Al-Mustaliq and the messenger of Allah transported their offspring, women and money and took it as spoils for himself

So this clearly means that “Bani Al-Mustaliq” were going to attack Muslims.
So Prophet Muhammad attacked them first before they attack him


And they were watering their animals to prepare for marching against Muslims
And of course fighting was by swords not by hands or water guns
As this joker was portraying


Mr.Moronic Christian Prince was portraying them as some sort of peaceful community who are minding their own business which is false.

Now he claims that the woman of “Bani Al-Mustaliq” were raped.
So this joker is claiming that the Prophet raped the women of “Bani Al-Mustaliq”.


And he also claims that the Prophet raped “Juwairiyah” .


Where is even rape mentioned here?


Where is even rape or fore mentioned in this hadith?
He is just assuming that its about rape without providing no evidences.
While rape is not even mentioned.
In order to prove that it was rape, you have to prove that someone was forced which he didnt.

Now lets see that how all the captives of “Bani Al-Mustaliq” were freed

And how”Juwairiyah” herself went to Prophet Muhammad to ask for her freedom

In Sunan Abi Dawud, Book 31, Hadith 6 [3]
It was narrated from Muhammad bin Ja’far bin Az-Zubair, from ‘Urwah bin Az-Zubair that ‘Aishah said: “Juwairiyah bint Al-Hãrith bin Al-Mutalaq fell to the lot of Thãbit bin Qais bin Shammãs, or a cousin of his, and she made a contract of manumission for herself. She was a very beautiful and attractive woman.

” ‘Aishah said:

I fell to the lot of Thabit bin Qais bin Shammas, but I have made a contract of manumission for myself, and I have come to ask you about my manumission.’ The Messenger of Allah said:

“She came to ask the Messenger of Allah about her contract of manumission, and when I saw her standing at the door, I did not like it, because I realized that the Messenger of Allah would see in her what I saw. She said: ‘0 Messenger of Allah, I am Juwairiyah Bint Al-Harith and there has happened to me that of which you are not unaware.

‘How about giving you something which is better than that?’ She said: ‘What is that, 0 Messenger of Allah?’ He said: ‘I will pay off ”ir contract of manumission and marry you.’ She said:

‘I accept.’ The people heard that the Messenger of Allah had married Juwairiyah, and they released the captives they were holding and set them free, saying: ‘(They are) the in-laws of the Messenger of Allah .’

We have never seen a woman who brought more blessing to her people than her. Because of her, one hundred families of BanU Al-Mua1iq were set free.”
So this means that Juwairiyah asked the Prophet to help her gain her freedom.
And the Prophet married her .


and after this marriage, Muslims freed all the captives of “Bani Al-Mustaliq”.
And the most important thing here mentioned in this hadith is something called “Mukatabah”
What does “Mukatabah mean?.


“Mukatabah” means that the slave or the captive can request to pay the price of his freedom.
she made a contract of manumission for herself.


And more important than that


Is that Allah commanded Muslims to accept the request of the slave who is asking to pay the price of his freedom

And those who seek a contract [for eventual emancipation] from among whom your right hands possess – then make a contract with them if you know there is within them goodness and give them from the wealth of Allah which He has given you. (Quran 24:33) [4]


And even Allah ordered us to give them from our wealth.
So clearly Islam orders Muslims to accept the request of captives or slaves if they want to pay for their freedom
And even give them from their wealth


And Prophet Muhammad applied this verse and helped Juwairiya
And since he claimed that Islam condones rape of captives

This hadith will destroy his claim

Sahih Muslim, Book 27, Hadith 46 [5]

“expiation ” means it is a sin.
It is a sin to beat slaves in Islam for no reason
And in another Hadith:

Sahih Muslim, Book 27, Hadith 50 [6]
https://sunnah.com/muslim/27/50

So how come Islam condones rape of slaves or captives as they claim?

While Prophet Muhammad himself commanded Muslims to not strike or beat their slaves.
And that beating slaves for no reason is a sin
But according to Bible a master can beat his slaves with a rod.

Exodus 21:20-21 New International Version (NIV) [7]


20 “Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies as a direct result, 21 but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property.

And why he is even complaining about taking women and children as captives.
While his own Bible says that its ok to take women and children as captives.

Deuteronomy 20:13-14 New International Version (NIV) [8]


13 When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. 14 As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the Lord your God gives you from your enemies.

Numbers 31:17-18 New Living Translation (NLT) [9]
17 So kill all the boys and all the women who have had intercourse with a man. 18 Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.


So it seems like he don’t know what is written in his Bible.


And taking captives as slaves after war.
was already a worldwide system even thousands of years before Prophet Muhammad.

And Islam commands Muslims to treat slaves and captives well

And they give food in spite of love for it to the needy, the orphan, and the captive, (Quran 76:8) [11]

O Prophet, say to whoever is in your hands of the captives, “If Allah knows [any] good in your hearts, He will give you [something] better than what was taken from you, and He will forgive you; and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” (8:70) [12]

And there are tons of other references from Quran and Sunnah which commands good treatment of captives and slaves

Now lets see that raping captives of wars is a Biblical teaching

lets see how the Bible commands rape of Babylon women

Isaiah 13 New International Version (NIV) [13]


A Prophecy Against Babylon
1 A prophecy against Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz saw:
2 Raise a banner on a bare hilltop,
shout to them;
beckon to them
to enter the gates of the nobles.
3 I have commanded those I prepared for battle;
I have summoned my warriors to carry out my wrath—
those who rejoice in my triumph.

Now lets see what those holy warriors will do when they capture Babylon [14]

15 Whoever is captured will be thrust through;
all who are caught will fall by the sword.
16 Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes;
their houses will be looted and their wives violated
.


17 See, I will stir up against them the Medes,
who do not care for silver
and have no delight in gold.


18 Their bows will strike down the young men;
they will have no mercy on infants,
nor will they look with compassion on children.
19 Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms,


the pride and glory of the Babylonians,[b]
will be overthrown by God
like Sodom and Gomorrah.

And in another translations it says ..

New Living Translation [15]


Their little children will be dashed to death before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked, and their wives will be raped.

What an amazing prophecy from the holy Bible

Very holy indeed

Very holy

Ok great

So you say that mass murder cant be justified

Great!!

So tell me how can you justify the following mass genocides which is commanded by the Bible

Ezekiel 9:5-7 New Living Translation (NLT) [16]


5 Then I heard the Lord say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! 6 Kill them all—old and young, girls and women and little children. 

But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin right here at the Temple.” So they began by killing the seventy leaders.
7 “Defile the Temple!” the Lord commanded. “Fill its courtyards with corpses. Go!” So they went and began killing throughout the city.

1 Samuel 15:2-3 [17]
2 This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. 3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy[a] all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’”

Even the donkeys were not safe from such brutality!!!

Joshua 8:24-27 New International Version (NIV) [18]


24 When Israel had finished killing all the men of Ai in the fields and in the wilderness where they had chased them, and when every one of them had been put to the sword, all the Israelites returned to Ai and killed those who were in it. 25 Twelve thousand men and women fell that day

all the people of Ai. 26 For Joshua did not draw back the hand that held out his javelin until he had destroyed[a] all who lived in Ai. 27 But Israel did carry off for themselves the livestock and plunder of this city, as the Lord had instructed Joshua.

Now compare this horrible Biblical teachings with the teaching of Prophet Muhammad regarding battles:

Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war, do not embezzle the spoilsdo not break your pledgeand do not mutilate (the dead) bodiesdo not kill the children. When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action.

If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. 

Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against themThen invite them to migrate from their lands to the land of the Muhajireen and inform them that, if they do so, they shall have all the privileges and obligations of the Muhajireen. 

If they refuse to migrate, tell them that they will have the status of Bedouin Muslims and will be subjected to the Commands of Allah like other Muslims,

but they will not get any share from the spoils of war or Fai’ except when they actually fight with the Muslims (against the disbelievers). If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya.

If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them. When you lay siege to a fort and the besieged appeal to you for protection in the name of Allah and His Prophet, do not accord to them the guarantee of Allah and His Prophet, but accord to them your own guarantee and

the guarantee of your companions for it is a lesser sin that the security given by you or your companions be disregarded than that the security granted in the name of Allah and His Prophet be violated.

When you besiege a fort and the besieged want you to let them out in accordance with Allah’s Command, do not let them come out in accordance with His Command, but do so at your (own) command, for you do not know whether or not you will be able to carry out Allah’s behest with regard to them.

Note: This Hadiths context is obviously only regarding battles. So please keep the context in mind.

In conslusion as we know it Mr.Christian Prince lied about the entire thing. Took it out of context,distorted it,made assumptions without providing ANY evidences to support his false claim.
