Refuting The Rubbish About The Death Of Our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)

Well, There is a verse and a hadith which are usually inter related to claim that the death of Our Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) was a penalty, which is definitely wrong.

See the verses.

We would have seized him by the right hand;

Then We would have cut from him the aorta (The word used here is Wateen).

And there is no one of you who could prevent [Us] from him.   [Qur’an 69:45-47]

See the hadith

Narrated Aisha (radhiyallahu anha):

The Prophet (ﷺ) in his ailment in which he died, used to say,

“O ‘Aisha! I still feel the pain caused by the food I ate at Khaibar, and at this time, I feel as if my aorta (the word used here is  abhari) is being cut from that poison. [Sahih Bukhari 4428]

Now note the following points:

1.The penalty had to start with hand, right hand.

Gripping or seizing the right hand means there must be some sort of paralysis or severe injury, continuing up to death which never occurred.

According to the verses, the punishment had to start from right hand but The right hand remained well till death. Nothing of such type had ever occurred.

There was no such punishment by Allah because there was no changing of Quran.

2. Nothing could have prevented Us (69:47), means not even the time could have prevented the punishment, there would be instantaneous seizing together with the cutting of aorta, without any delay.

Again, there was no such scene.

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) died many years after the incident of Khyber 629-632 A.D.

3. Note the tone of these verses and the intensity of Wrath.

Could you imagine a slow death afterwards, without seizing the hands?

No, because it was never the case.

Not at all.

4. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) was stable at the moment, stable afterwards. According to another hadith, He (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) called the woman and asked her about the poison.

His condition was well, He remained well later on.

There were no acute symptoms (sudden deteriorating condition), nor was there any case of chronic poisoning (long term slow poisoning).

The Holy Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), leaded, organized and managed about 41 expeditions later on.

He was not only managing a city but a whole developing Muslim empire.

He traveled many times,even in extreme conditions

How could you ever imagine a person with cut aorta, travelling and leading so many expeditions?

Use some brains.

5. Coming towards the aorta, The words are totally different. According to google translate, the translation of word aorta in Arabic is Wateen or Shryaan. There is nothing like abhariSee Here

The translation of Abhari  is given as aortic or breathing. So it would be like cutting breathing, not the cutting aorta.
