Volume 1, Book 11, Number 664:Narrated Anas bin Malik:The Prophet said to Abu-Dhar, “Listen and obey (your chief) even if he is an Ethiopian with a head like a raisin.”
Volume 9, Book 89, Number 256:Narrated Anas bin Malik:Allah’s Apostle said, “You should listen to and obey, your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin.”
Besides the obvious repetitiveness of the Hadiths (where the instance is mentioned three times, like so many of the other hadiths), these passages show something into Mohammad's mindset.
Mohammad did not like black people.
The fact is Mohammad's principle of slavery was so important to him, that he made sure that a person must remain a slave, EVEN if it meant being owned by a black person. This connotes that blacks were inferior than others, and that the slave trade should be enforced, even if it meant being slave to a person most undesirable, like an Ethiopian black.
To top it off, Mohammad made sure to say that you should remain slaves to blacks whose heads looked like raisins.
The ridiculing of black people just never stopped for Mohammad.

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
I never heard 'Umar saying about something that he thought it would be so-and-so, but he was quite right. Once, while 'Umar was sitting, a handsome man passed by him, 'Umar said, "If I am not wrong, this person is still on his religion of the pre-lslamic period of ignorance or he was their foreteller. Call the man to me." When the man was called to him, he told him of his thought. The man said, "I have never seen such a day on which a Muslim is faced with such an accusation." 'Umar said, "I am determined that you should tell me the truth." He said, "I was a foreteller in the pre-lslamic period of ignorance." Then 'Umar said, "Tell me the most astonishing thing your female Jinn has told you of." He said, "One-day while I was in the market, she came to me scared and said, 'Haven't you seen the Jinns and their despair and they were overthrown after their defeat (and prevented from listening to the news of the heaven) so that they (stopped going to the sky and) kept following camel-riders (i.e. 'Arabs)?" 'Umar said, "He is right." and added, "One day while I was near their idols, there came a man with a calf and slaughtered it as a sacrifice (for the idols). An (unseen) creature shouted at him, and I have never heard harsher than his voice. He was crying, 'O you bold evil-doer! A matter of success! An eloquent man is saying: None has the right to be worshipped except you (O Allah).' On that the people fled, but I said, 'I shall not go away till I know what is behind this.' Then the cry came again: 'O you bold evil-doer! A matter of success! An eloquent man is saying: None has the right to be worshipped except Allah.' I then went away and a few days later it was said, "A prophet has appeared."
This is one of the weirdest and most disturbing passages I have come across so far.
Foretellers = Fortunetellers = Fortune telling is a practice used by the occult, and is the art forecasting the future supposedly by supernatural means, is an ancient practice which is still popular today. Fortune telling is also known as divination. The one who practices this activity is known as a diviner. Fortune tellers include all those who claim to predict your future or advise your life through such means as ouija boards, mirror mantic such as crystal balls, mirrors, rock crystals, extra sensory perception (ESP), horoscopes, astrology or biorhythm, telepathy, palm-reading, etc.
Jinn = A race of fire created by allah - normally demonic of origin.
So, a foreteller, a member of the occult, sees demonic spirits advising an individual to convert to islam, and he does.
I really cant see anything wrong with this picture. Can you?

The wives of the Prophet used to go to Al-Manasi, a vast open place (near Baqia at Medina) to answer the call of nature at night. 'Umar used to say to the Prophet "Let your wives be veiled," but Allah's Apostle did not do so. One night Sauda bint Zam'a the wife of the Prophet went out at 'Isha' time and she was a tall lady. 'Umar addressed her and said, "I have recognized you, O Sauda." He said so, as he desired eagerly that the verses of Al-Hijab (the observing of veils by the Muslim women) may be revealed. So Allah revealed the verses of "Al-Hijab" (A complete body cover excluding the eyes).
It is interesting to see how the prophet's wives would go to a certain designated spot in Medina to "answer the call of nature." What's more interesting is that Muhammad's companions knew where his wives would "answer the call of nature."
Furthermore, it is interesting to see that the wishes of Muhammad's followers could effectively influence Muhammad.
As it is written here, Umar wanted the Prophet to veil his wives, but the prophet only did so once Umar recognized one of his wives answering the call of nature in an open field.
The questions that must be answered are as follows:
1) How did Umar know that the verses of Al-Hijab would be revealed if he recognized one of the prophet's wives answering the call of nature?
a) How many other surahs were also anticipated in a cause and effect type situation where the Muhammad's followers would perform an action so that he could reveal a verse?
2) Did the angel Gabriel inspire Umar to say those words so that the angel would then inspire Muhammad with more of Allah's words, especially concerning the Hijab?
3) Why did Muhammad's followers know where his wives would go to answer the call of nature?
4) Why was it an embarassing thing if Sauda answered the call of nature?
5) Did others also spy on Muhammad's wives before Umar "recognized" Sauda?

Whenever the Prophet asked permission to enter, he knocked the door thrice with greeting and whenever he spoke a sentence (said a thing) he used to repeat it thrice. (See Hadith No. 261, Vol. 8).
Why did Mohammad need to repeat what he said?
Was his repetition a form of mind control?
Was it because repetition makes something holy?
Did the Hadith's try to illustrate that Mohammad was a child (or an adult with a child like mentality)?
"Jacob Two-Two" is the main character of a children's novel written by Mordecai Richler. Jacob is the youngest child of five and has to say things twice because people don't hear him the first time. He is a 6-year-old boy who cannot ride a two-wheel bike, or cut bread, or cross the street, or run errands for his parents.

Book 004, Number 1106:
Abu Darda' reported: Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) stood up (to pray) and we heard him say:" I seek refuge in Allah from thee." Then said:" curse thee with Allah's curse" three times, then he stretched out his hand as though he was taking hold of something. When he finished the prayer, we said: Messenger of Allah, we heard you say something during the prayer which we have not heard you say before, and we saw you stretch out your hand. He replied: Allah's enemy Iblis came with a flame of fire to put it in my face, so I said three times:" I Seek refuge in Allah from thee." Then I said three times:" I curse thee with Allah's full curse." But he did not retreat (on any one of these) three occasions. Thereafter I meant to seize him. I swear by Allah that had it not been for the supplication of my brother Sulaiman he would have been bound, and made an object of sport for the children of Medina.
1) Why did Solomon stop Mohammad from fighting Iblis?
2)Why would Solomon and Iblis be on the same side?
3)Why does Iblis come to Mohammad during prayer?
4) Isnt Allah's name supposed to strike fear into the hearts of demons (i.e. Iblis)?
a) If so, why didn’t Iblis leave?
5) Why did not the other Muslims see what was happenning?
6) If this did in fact happen to Mohammad, then, shouldnt muslims consider that almost everything he did occured in a dream-like state, like his night vision to Jerusalem (and praying at the non-existant Temple in Jerusalem, which had been destroyed 5 centuries earlier)?
7) Ultimately, where does one draw the line between reality and fiction in Islam?
Once again, could Sahih Muslim have included this line in attempt to ridicule Mohammad's religion?

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Tuesday, April 22, 2008
Narrated Ishaq bin 'Abdullah bin Abu Talha:
I heard Anas bin Malik saying, "A tailor invited Allah's Apostle to a meal which he had prepared. " Anas bin Malik said, "I accompanied Allah's Apostle to that meal. He served the Prophet with bread and soup made with gourd and dried meat. I saw the Prophet taking the pieces of gourd from the dish." Anas added, "Since that day I have continued to like gourd."
Did Anas like Gourd because Mohammad like Gourd, or because he liked the Gourd himself?
If it is because of Mohammad, was this inserted into the Hadiths as a subliminal message to all followers of Mohammad to like whatever Mohammad liked?
If the answer is because he liked Gourd himself, why is this passage in the Hadiths at all? Was it to show that Mohammad liked Gourd, or was Anas a Gourd salesman?

Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, 'The (people of) Bani Israel used to take bath naked (all together) looking at each other. The Prophet Moses used to take a bath alone. They said, 'By Allah! Nothing prevents Moses from taking a bath with us except that he has a scrotal hernia.' So once Moses went out to take a bath and put his clothes over a stone and then that stone ran away with his clothes. Moses followed that stone saying, "My clothes, O stone! My clothes, O stone! till the people of Bani Israel saw him and said, 'By Allah, Moses has got no defect in his body. Moses took his clothes and began to beat the stone." Abu Huraira added, "By Allah! There are still six or seven marks present on the stone from that excessive beating."
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "When the Prophet Job (Aiyub) was taking a bath naked, golden locusts began to fall on him. Job started collecting them in his clothes. His Lord addressed him, 'O Job! Haven't I given you enough so that you are not in need of them.' Job replied, 'Yes!' By Your Honor (power)! But I cannot dispense with Your Blessings.' "
This passage clearly demonstrates Mohammad's very fertile imagination.
When one looks at the above hadith, one sees that the Israelis bathed togethor in the desert, not hiding anything from one another. This is 100% inaccurate, and illogical, unless the Jews leaving Egypt were so totally devoid of morals and shame.
Further, Moses would not bathe with the other Israeliites because of a scrotal hernia. A scrotal hernia is as follows: Long-standing hernias or ruptures frequently descend into the scrotum and create enlargement of the scrotal sac. When standing or straining, the mass appears to fall outside of the lower abdomen, underneath the skin, and find its way into the scrotum, which then may balloon-up to the size of an orange or more. Usually these enlargements return to the abdomen when lying down, or when pressure is placed under the enlargement in the scrotum.
If the Israelities were without shame, why did Moses not bathe with them, and hide his scrotal hernia?
Finally, a rock stole his Moses' clothes, which caused Moses to give it a severe beating. Why the hell did the stone steal his clothing?
Anyways, this passage leaves many questions that need to be answered.
1) How did Mohammad know about this story if Allah or Gabriel did not reveal it to him, and it is found nowhere in the Hebrew scriputres?
2) How did Abu Haraira know they had found the stone, and show that it still had 6 or 7 marks after Moses' severe beating?
a) Did the stone heal over time?
b) Could the stone heal over time as it obviously had feelings and thought that it stole Moses' clothes?
c) Was the stone a sentient being?
3) Was the stone the original pet rock?
4) Why did Moses feel the need to lie by telling his fellow Israelites that he had a scrotal hernia?
a) Wouldnt a less disgusting disease have been appropriate?
b) Why would he need to lie to them in the first place, especially if he was God's messenger, leading them out into the wilderness?
The above does not take into account the story of Job. That will be discussed on a different day.

Volume 5, Book 58, Number 188:
Narrated 'Amr bin Maimun: During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them.
The questions that must be answered are as follows:
1) How did Amr Bin Maimun know that the she-monkeys committed illegal sexual intercourse?
a) Did he communicate with them through in arabic or monkey?
2) Do monkeys have a code of ethics?
a) If so, did they get this divine inspiration from allah?
b) Did allah command the monkeys to stone the she-monkey?
c) What was the illegal sexual act committed by the she-monkey?
3) Why did Amr begin stoning the she-monkeys?
4) Why did Bukhari include this surah?
a) Was it to discredit all surah's by Amr Bin Maimun; or
b) Was it to discredit all of Islam, as we shall seee repeatedly, by including a ridiculous verse?

Mohammed would get divine inspiration when he slept with his 9 year old wife
Volume 5, Book 57, Number 119:
Narrated Hisham's father:
The people used to send presents to the Prophet on the day of 'Aisha's turn. 'Aisha said, "My companions (i.e. the other wives of the Prophet) gathered in the house of Um Salama and said, "0 Um Salama! By Allah, the people choose to send presents on the day of 'Aisha's turn and we too, love the good (i.e. presents etc.) as 'Aisha does. You should tell Allah's Apostle to tell the people to send their presents to him wherever he may be, or wherever his turn may be." Um Salama said that to the Prophet and he turned away from her, and when the Prophet returned to her (i.e. Um Salama), she repeated the same, and the Prophet again turned away, and when she told him the same for the third time, the Prophet said, "O Um Salama! Don't trouble me by harming 'Aisha, for by Allah, the Divine Inspiration never came to me while I was under the blanket of any woman amongst you except her."The question that begs answering is, who would get divine inspiration while sleeping with a 9 year old girl? What sentient being would give M his divine readings of the Quran as he was engaged in his love making prowess with a 9 year old woman?
More interestingly enough, which verses in the Quran were inspired when he made love with Aesha, the 9 year old.
Needless to say, it is implausible to think that any just and moral divine being would give "divine inspiration" to a prophet as he would sexually ravage the body of a 9 year old.
In a related story, an 8 year old girl in Yemen sought divorce from her 30 year old husband for sexual abuse. I wonder why the man did not use the defence that M did it.
I believe that Holy Islam was originally created by Mohammed. Most of his companions were making fun of him, which only encouraged him to continue to do what he does. The purpose of this blog is to shed light on the distinct possibility, through Muslim records such as the Hadiths, that Muslims were actually ridiculing Mohammad through their own writings.
