Rebuttal to Craig Winn "Prophet of Doom: LUST" article:

The following article is a rebuttal to Craig Winn's article that is located at:  http://www../quotes4.html#lust.  

 

Important Note to the Reader:

Craig Winn purposely twisted and modified the English translations that he used!  He changes words in translations and uses non-Muslim ones.  I've noticed this a lot through his translations of the Noble Verses that he used from the Noble Quran.


Please visit:

List of Craig Winn's fabricated lies and deliberate alteration of quotes, WITH CLEAR-CUT PROOFS!

 

 

 

Let us first look at lust in his Bible:

Forcing 3-year old slave girls into sex under the Mosaic Law.  Lusting on 3-year old girls!!

Women's vaginas and breasts taste like "wine".

Brothers can "suck" their sisters' and lovers' vaginas and breasts.

Fathers can stick their fingers into their daughters' vagina under the "Digital Defloration" Mosaic Law.

Qur’an 33:51 “You may have whomever you desire; there is no blame.”
Tabari VIII:187 “The [sixty-two-year old] Messenger of Allah married Mulaykah. She was young and beautiful. One of the Prophet’s wives came to her and said, ‘Are you not ashamed to marry a man who killed your father during the day he conquered Mecca?” She therefore took refuge from him.”

Zaynab, Zayd’s wife, rose to meet him. She was dressed only in a shift…. She jumped up eagerly and excited the admiration of Allah’s Messenger, so that he turned away murmuring something that could scarcely be understood. However, he did say overtly, ‘Glory be to Allah Almighty, who causes hearts to turn!’ So Zayd went to Muhammad. ‘Prophet, I have heard that you came to my house. Why didn’t you go in? [Dad,] Perhaps Zaynab has excited your admiration, so I will leave her.’”
Tabari VIII:4 “One day Muhammad went out looking for Zayd. Now there was a covering of haircloth over the doorway, but the wind had lifted the covering so that the doorway was uncovered. Zaynab was in her chamber, undressed, and admiration for her entered the heart of the Prophet. After that Allah made her unattractive to Zayd.’”
Tabari VIII:3 “Zayd left her, and she became free. While the Messenger of Allah was talking with Aisha, a fainting overcame him. When he was released from it, he smiled and said, ‘Who will go to Zaynab to tell her the good news? Allah has married her to me.’ Then the Prophet recited [Qur’an 33] to the end of the passage. Aisha said, ‘I became very uneasy because of what we heard about her beauty and another thing, the loftiest of matters, what Allah had done for her by personally giving her to him in marriage. I said that she would boast of it over us.’”

Qur’an 33:6 “The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, and his wives are their mothers.... This is written in the Book.”
Qur’an 33:37 “You hid in your mind and your heart that which Allah was about to manifest: you feared the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear Allah. Then when Zayd had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary (formality), We gave her to you, joining her in marriage to you: in order that there may be no difficulty or sin for the Believers in the wives of their adopted sons, when the latter have dissolved with the necessary (formality) (their marriage) with them. And Allah’s command must be fulfilled.” 
Qur’an 33:38 “There can be no difficulty, harm, or reproach to the Prophet in doing what Allah has ordained to him as a duty. It was the practice (approved) of Allah amongst those of old that have passed away. And the commandment of Allah is a decree determined. (It is the practice of those) who deliver the Messages of Allah, and fear Him. Allah keeps good account. Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Last of the Prophets with the Seal: and Allah has full knowledge of all things.”
Qur’an 33:48 “And obey not (the behests) of the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites. Disregard their noxious talk and heed not their annoyances, but put thy trust in Allah. For enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.”
Qur’an 33:50 “O Prophet! We have made lawful to you all the wives to whom you have paid dowers; and those whom your hands possess out of the prisoners of war spoils whom Allah has assigned to you; and daughters of your paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of your uncles and aunts, who migrated with you; and any believing woman if the Prophet wishes her; this is a privilege for you only, and not for the rest of the Believers; We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom they possess; in order that there should be no difficulty for you and that you should be free from blame.”
Qur’an 33:51 “You may put off whom you please, and you may take to you whomever you desire. You may defer any of them you please, and you may have whomever you desire; there is no blame on you if you invite one who you had set aside. It is no sin.”
Qur’an 33:28 “O Prophet, say to your wives and consorts: ‘If you desire this world’s life and its glittering adornment, then come! I will provide them for your enjoyment and set you free in a handsome manner. And if you desire Allah and His Messenger and the latter abode, then lo! Allah hath prepared for the good-doers an immense reward.”
Qur’an 33:30 “O Consorts of the Prophet! If any of you are guilty of unseemly conduct, shamelessness, or lewdness, the punishment will be doubled, and that is easy for Allah. But any of you that is devout, obedient, and submissive in the service to Allah and His Messenger, and does good, to her shall We grant her reward twice. We have prepared for her a generously rich provision.”
Qur’an 33:32 “Consorts of the Prophet! You are not like any of the (other) women. Fear and keep your duty, lest one in whose heart is a disease should be moved with desire. Stay quietly in your apartment. Make not a dazzling display like that of the former times of Ignorance. Perform the devotion, pay the zakat; and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah wishes to cleanse you with a thorough cleansing. And bear in mind that which is recited in your houses of the revelations of Allah and the wisdom.”
Qur’an 33:36 “It is not fitting for a Muslim man or woman to have any choice in their affairs when a matter has been decided for them by Allah and His Messenger. They have no option. If any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a wrong Path.”
Qur’an 4:23 “Prohibited to you are: your mothers, daughters, sisters.... Also (prohibited are) women already married, except slaves who are captives.” [Rape is okay with Team Islam.]
Bukhari:V5B59N459 “I entered the Mosque, saw Abu, sat beside him and asked about sex. Abu Said said, ‘We went out with Allah’s Apostle and we received female slaves from among the captives. We desired women and we loved to do coitus interruptus.’”

 

 

My response:

First of all, as I proved in my previous rebuttals, the Al-Tabari and Ibn-Ishaq and other sources are extremely doubtful and unauthenticated.  Most Muslim scholars today firmly and strongly believe in this.  Not that the hadiths above are bad or anything, but as most Muslim Scholars agree, we Muslims can't take them as absolute Truth or accurate information.  Much of these volumes are either corrupt or taken out of context.  Again, this is according to the Muslims scholars.  This is why these volumes are considered "unauthenticated".

Now in regards to the slave women and women in Paradise:

There are two main sections to this rebuttal:

1-  Slave women in Islam and the Bible.

2-  Women in Paradise.

 

 

1-  Slave women in Islam and the Bible:

In regards to slave women, I've written a long and detailed article above slave women in the Bible and Islam and showed that the Bible not only allows the raping of slave women, but it also orders its followers to keep them forever and to inherit them to their children:


From www.answering-christianity.com/right_hand_possession.htm:

 

Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah:  "Musaykah, a slave-girl of some Ansari, came and said: My master forces me to commit fornication. Thereupon the following verse was revealed: "But force not your maids to prostitution (when they desire chastity). (24:33)"  (Translation of Sunan Abu Dawud, Divorce (Kitab Al-Talaq), Book 12, Number 2304)"

In Islam, men are not allowed to rape their slave-girls.  Allah Almighty clearly prohibited it in Noble Verse 24:33.  In Islam, slavery is also not allowed.  Please visit The liberation of slaves in Islam, to see how Islam gradually ended the Judeo-Christian and pagan slavery.

 

Why did Allah Almighty make lawful for Muslim men to have sexual intercourse with the married women whom are captives of war?

The sections of this article are:

1-   Why did Allah Almighty make lawful for Muslim men to have sexual intercourse with the married women from the captives?
2-   The reasons behind why Allah Almighty allowed such a law.
3-   In Islam, the Muslims have to be very kind to their slaves.

4-   Can a slave request his freedom from his Muslim owner? Yes, and the Muslim master has to grant him/her their freedom according to the Noble Quran.

5-   Captivity was really brutal before Islam among the Pagans and the teachings of the Bible.

6-  Does the Bible order its followers to inherit the slaves and their children? Yes, the Bible commands to keep the slaves forever and to inherit them to your children too.

7-   The entire Bible is corrupted anyway according to its Theologians!
8-   Can a Muslim man rape his slave woman?
9-   Can a Muslim man rape his domestic maid girl?
10- Response to the "Proofs" that men can rape their slave-girls in Islam.

 

Let us look at the following Noble Verses from the Noble Quran:

"Prohibited to you (For marriage) are:- Your mothers, daughters, sisters; father's sisters, Mother's sisters; brother's daughters, sister's daughters; foster-mothers (Who gave you suck), foster-sisters; your wives' mothers; your step-daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom ye have gone in,- no prohibition if ye have not gone in;- (Those who have been) wives of your sons proceeding from your loins; and two sisters in wedlock at one and the same time, except for what is past; for God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful;-  

Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess: Thus hath God ordained (Prohibitions) against you: Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property,- desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if, after a dower is prescribed, agree Mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and God is All-knowing, All-wise. (The Noble Quran, 4:23-24)"

The definition of the term "right hands possess" is "Captives of war".  Those from among the population of the tribes who fought the Muslims are considered "right hand possessions" if their tribe is defeated and captured.

We first need to understand that back 1400 years ago, when Islam was growing among the Pagan Arab Tribes, the Muslims were at constant wars with the Pagans. The Pagan tribes highly objected to the presence and the rapid growth of Islam, and they all united to fight Islam and finish it once and for all.

During those days, the Muslims did not have any government.  Governments provide welfare and protection to people.  Back then, and when there was no Islamic Government yet, the Muslims were their own country and were their own government. Everyone had to share in the responsibility DIRECTLY by sheltering the captives of wars at their homes. 

 

The reasons behind why Allah Almighty allowed such a law:

The following was sent to me by brother Zakaria B Hj Mokhtar; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.

Assalamualaykum,   

Brother Osama,   

I'm referring to your justifications that Allah Almighty had made lawful for Muslims to have sexual intercourse with the married women whom are captives of war. According to a footnote of a Malay translated Holy Quran by H. Zainuddin Hamidy and Fachruddin, Klang Bookstore, Malaysia, 1955, with reference to sura 33:26, 

[al-Ahzab 33:26] And He brought those of the People of the Scripture who supported them down from their strongholds, and cast panic into their hearts. Some ye slew, and ye made captive some.,

the footnote read as follows:

'The punishment toward (the Jewish tribe) Banu Quraizah who betrayed and assisted the allies was handed down by Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him to Sa'ad bin Mu'ads.   The verdicts: They were sentenced to death, the women were made slaves (captives), and their lands were divided among the Muhajirins.  The decision was made as such based on the laws of the Old Testament, Deuteronomy 20:13-14

'13 And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword: 

14 But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee. 

Thank you.

 

In Islam, the Muslims have to be very kind to their slaves:

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him ordered his followers to be kind to their slaves: Narrated Al-Ma'rur: At Ar-Rabadha I met Abu Dhar who was wearing a cloak, and his slave, too, was wearing a similar one. I asked about the reason for it. He replied, "I abused a person by calling his mother with bad names." The Prophet said to me, 'O Abu Dhar! Did you abuse him by calling his mother with bad names You still have some characteristics of ignorance. Your slaves are your brothers and Allah has put them under your command. So whoever has a brother under his command should feed him of what he eats and dress him of what he wears.  Do not ask them (slaves) to do things beyond their capacity (power) and if you do so, then help them.'   (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 2, Belief, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 29)"

To me, this Saying by our beloved Prophet means a lot. It proves that not only to treat with kindness those who fought us bloody battles and tried to destroyed Islam once and for all, and caused so much deaths for Muslims, but to also treat them as BROTHERS/SISTERS, and to feed them from the same food that we eat from and to dress them from the cloths that we wear.  This is quite respectful to humanity and to mankind.

Also, Allah Almighty encouraged the Muslims to liberate Slaves and the Captives of Wars (right hands possessions) whenever possible.  Let us look at Noble Verse 4:92 "Never should a believer kill a believer; but (If it so happens) by mistake, (Compensation is due): If  one (so) kills a believer, it is ordained that he should free a believing slave, and pay compensation to the deceased's family, unless they remit it freely. If the deceased belonged to a people at war with you, and he was a believer, the freeing of a believing slave (Is enough). If he belonged to a people with whom ye have treaty of Mutual alliance, compensation should be paid to his family, and a believing slave be freed.   For those who find this beyond their means, (is prescribed) a fast for two months running: by way of repentance to God: for God hath all knowledge and all wisdom." In this Noble Verse, we see that Allah Almighty ordered to free a believing slave if a Muslim accidentally kills another Muslim. This Noble Verse came to encourage Muslims to liberate slaves.

Let us look at Noble Verse 5:89 "God will not call you to account for what is futile in your oaths, but He will call you to account for your deliberate oaths: for expiation, feed ten indigent persons, on a scale of the average for the food of your families; or clothe them; or give a slave [either a believing or non-believing slave] his freedom. If that is beyond your means, fast for three days.  That is the expiation for the oaths ye have sworn. But keep to your oaths. Thus doth God make clear to you His signs, that ye may be grateful." This Noble Verse is also another proof that Allah Almighty did encourage Muslims to liberate slaves. 

Let us look at Noble Verse 58:3 "But those who divorce their wives by Zihar, then wish to go back on the words they uttered, (It is ordained that such a one) should free a slave [either believing or non-believing slave] before they touch each other: Thus are ye admonished to perform: and God is well-acquainted with (all) that ye do." This Noble Verse is another proof that Allah Almighty did encourage Muslims to liberate slaves.

There are more Noble Verses that push for the liberation of slaves.  But the above Noble Verses should be sufficient enough to prove my point.

 

Can a slave request his freedom from his Muslim owner?

The Noble Quran not only allows slaves to request their freedom from their Muslim masters, but also orders the Muslim masters to pay the slaves money to help them stand on their feet and to be able to face life with a good jump start. 

Let us look at Noble Verse 24:33 "Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until God gives them means out of His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing (to enable them to earn their freedom for a certain sum), give them such a deed if ye know any good in them: yea, give them something yourselves out of the means which God has given to you. But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is God, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them),"  In this Noble Verse, we see that if a slave requests his freedom from his Muslim master, then his master not only must help him earn his freedom if there is good in the Slave, but also pay him money so the slave can have a good start in his free life. 

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him also said:

Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari:  "The Prophet said, "Give food to the hungry, pay a visit to the sick and release (set free) the one in captivity (by paying his ransom).(Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Food, Meals, Volume 7, Book 65, Number 286)"

Islam came to liberate all slaves and to end the Judeo-Christian and Pagan slavery that was practiced before Islam.  When Allah Almighty made lawful for the Muslim men to have sex with their slave women, He did it to keep the Islamic society back then during Islam's weak, partial and venerable times under control.

Now that after we've seen how Islam orders the Muslims to free the slaves whenever it is possible and also whenever the Slave requests his/her freedom, and to treat them as our brothers and sisters, then it is quite obvious that Islam is a religion that DOES NOT LIKE SLAVERY AND ENSLAVING PEOPLE.

We can now look at how Muslims can live with their Captives of Wars to understand the situation better.  Back in those days, in most cases of battles, the defeated tribe would have lost many of its men in the battle field, leaving behind the elderly, women and their children.

Everyone is now living under the Islamic ruling. Islam is never to be forced upon any human being; "Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from error....(The Noble Quran, 2:256)"  Also "Say, 'The truth is from your Lord': Let him who will believe, and let him who will, reject (it)....(The Noble Quran, 18:29)"   Every captured Pagan Arab had the freedom to continue following his/her religion as they wish.  However, since now they lived under the Islamic ruling, and they showed a great deal of offense to the Muslims, by declaring wars on the Muslims along with the rest of the Arab Pagan tribes, and lost so many of their men and money for the war, then their situation now is quite different.

For those of the Pagans who could afford to pay "Jizya" or "Taxes", then they would not be Captives of War and their life would continue as it was. However, for those who could not afford to pay "Jizya" or "Taxes", then they would be taken as Captives of War. They would serve the Muslims and the new ruling that they live in, until they bring back the losses that they brought to the Muslims.

Keep in mind that Allah Almighty allowed for the Captives of Wars to request and be granted their Freedom as shown in the Noble Verse 24:33 above. 

Those Captives of Wars while living with the Muslims, would be treated with kindness. Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him described them as the MUSLIMS' BROTHERS/SISTERS as shown in the Saying above and the Muslims must feed them from the same food that they eat and dress them from the same cloths that they wear. But since they are now living in captivity to make up for the damage that they caused to the Muslims from money and lives, they can be treated as slaves, and in slavery, the master can sleep with any of his women that he desires.

Also, in the Bible's Deuteronomy 20:13-14, in which it clearly gives orders to kill all the men and to take all of the women and children as slaves.  No where in the Noble Quran do we have any order to kill any innocent life.

Please visit Slavery in the Bible.

 

Captivity was really brutal before Islam among the Pagans and the teachings of the Bible:

Rabbi Joseph said: 'Come and hear. A maiden aged 3 years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition.' Mishnah: A girl of the age of 3 years and a day may be betrothed, subject to her father's approval, by sexual intercourse. ...Gemara: Our Rabbis taught: 'A girl of the age of 3 years may be betrothed by sexual intercourse.' "

Please visit Girls having sexual intercourse at the age of 3!  According to the Jewish Holiest Book, the Talmud.

Also, the Bible clearly allows for fathers to sell their daughters as slaves: "And in case a man should sell his daughter as a slave girl, she will not go out in the way that the slave men go out. If she is displeasing in the eyes of her master so that he doesn't designate her as a concubine but causes her to be redeemed, he will not be entitled to sell her to a foreign people in his treacherously dealing with her.  (Exodus 21:7-8)"

Islam prohibits such awful acts to be done to little babies of that age, because Allah Almighty said clearly in the Noble Verse where He permits Muslim men to have sexual intercourse with their Captives of War to "desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them...(4:24)"

Also, according to Islam, a girl is not allowed to have sexual intercourse, nor to get married before she has her first period and is capable of getting pregnant. A girl according to Islam can not be called a "Woman" or a young "Woman" until she has her first period and is capable of getting pregnant.  Notice that in Noble Verse 4:24, Allah Almighty is clearly talking about "Women" and not just "Females".  Also, no sexual intercourse experience can be practiced with either kids or men.

Also, in the Bible's Deuteronomy 20:13-14, in which it clearly gives orders to kill all the men and to take all of the women and children as slaves.  No where in the Noble Quran do we have any order to kill any innocent life.

Please visit Slavery in the Bible.

 

Does the Bible order its followers to inherit the slaves and their children?

Let us look at Leviticus 25:44-46 "Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can will them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly." 

What kind of a human value does the Bible give to slaves?   If slaves and their children must be inherited and passed down to newer generations as slaves, then how in the world will they ever gain their freedom?  Does the Bible believe in Freedom?  Does the Bible believe in liberating human beings from slavery?   Apparently it does not!

As we've seen above, Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran allows for slaves to request their freedom from their Muslim Masters and be granted their freedom and be given money on top of it to help them get a good jump start in life.  The Bible on the other hand, orders for slaves and their children to be inherited forever.

Also, in the Bible's Deuteronomy 20:13-14, in which it clearly gives orders to kill all the men and to take all of the women and children as slaves.  No where in the Noble Quran do we have any order to kill any innocent life.

The entire Bible is corrupted anyway according to its Theologians!

We must know that the Bible can not be trusted.  Let us look at what the Theologians and Historians of the NIV Bible say about the books of the Bible, and how they were corrupted by the scribes:

"...portions of the book were probably added by scribes or editors from later periods of Israel's history...  (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 183)"

(www.answering-christianity.com/authors_gospels.htm)

Please visit this site to see detailed quotes from the NIV Bible's Theologians and Historians admitting that most of the Bible's books and gospels were indeed corrupted by men and were not True Revelations from GOD Almighty.

The Jewish scribes had very badly corrupted the Bible and turned it into a big lie.    That is why GOD Almighty said:

"`How can you say, "We [the Jews] are wise, for we have the law of the LORD," when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?' (From the NIV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)

"How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie.   (From the RSV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"

In either translation above, we clearly see that the Bible has too many narrated stories and man-made cultural laws that were inserted into it that were not Divine Revelations from GOD Almighty.  The following sites have tons of details that prove that [1], [2], [3], [4].

It's quite obvious that the Bible is more like a man made cultural book than a divine book that is meant to be for all times and all places.  Anyway, the Bible was not even written by its original authors.  That is why you see things such as "And Moses went up to the mountain...." instead of "And I [Moses] went up to the mountain....", or "And Jesus said to Matthew...." instead of "And Jesus said to me [Matthew]...."  Most of the Books and Gospels of the Bible were written by third party people that were not even chosen by GOD, which makes the Bible just a cultural history book rather than a divine book from GOD Almighty.  Please see Question #3 to see why Allah Almighty allowed for the Bible of today to be corrupted.

 

Can a Muslim man rape his slave woman?

Below are three English translations to the Noble Verse where Allah Almighty commands the Muslim men to not force their slave women into sex.

The following translations were taken from http://mama.stg.brown.edu/webs/quran_browser/pqeasy.shtml

Translation: Yusufali:
"Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until God gives them means out of His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing (to enable them to earn their freedom for a certain sum), give them such a deed if ye know any good in them: yea, give them something yourselves out of the means which God has given to you. But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is God, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them),  (The Noble Quran, 24:33)"

Translation: Pickthall:
"And let those who cannot find a match keep chaste till Allah give them independence by His grace. And such of your slaves as seek a writing (of emancipation), write it for them if ye are aware of aught of good in them, and bestow upon them of the wealth of Allah which He hath bestowed upon you. Force not your slave-girls to whoredom that ye may seek enjoyment of the life of the world, if they would preserve their chastity. And if one force them, then (unto them), after their compulsion, lo! Allah will be Forgiving, Merciful.  (The Noble Quran, 24:33)"

Translation: Shakir:
"And let those who do not find the means to marry keep chaste until Allah makes them free from want out of His grace. And (as for) those who ask for a writing from among those whom your right hands possess, give them the writing if you know any good in them, and give them of the wealth of Allah which He has given you; and do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, when they desire to keep chaste, in order to seek the frail good of this world's life; and whoever compels them, then surely after their compulsion Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.  (The Noble Quran, 24:33)"

In all three translations, we clearly see that if the slave woman desires to keep chaste, then her Muslim master must not compel her into sex.  It might sound odd to us today, but pagans back then were used to having sex with and raping their slave girls, even the ones who were married:

Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah:  "Musaykah, a slave-girl of some Ansari, came and said: My master forces me to commit fornication. Thereupon the following verse was revealed: "But force not your maids to prostitution (when they desire chastity). (24:33)"  (Translation of Sunan Abu Dawud, Divorce (Kitab Al-Talaq), Book 12, Number 2304)"

In Islam, men are not allowed to rape their slave-girls.  Allah Almighty clearly prohibited it in Noble Verse 24:33.  In Islam, slavery is also not allowed.  Please visit The liberation of slaves in Islam, to see how Islam gradually ended the Judeo-Christian and pagan slavery.

I was told by a Muslim scholar before along time ago that the Arab pagans used to sometimes offer their wives for several nights to the rich and powerful men in the tribe to win their support and make them become more secured in the monopolizing and unmerciful pagan society.

So to women back then, it was something normal for a married slave woman to sleep with her master.  It was something normal in the society at that time.

Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran not only allows for the slave man or woman to earn their freedom from their Muslim master, and receive money from their Muslim master to help them start their free life, but also commands the Muslim men to not compel their slave women into sex. 

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him also said:

Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari:  "The Prophet said, "Give food to the hungry, pay a visit to the sick and release (set free) the one in captivity (by paying his ransom).(Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Food, Meals, Volume 7, Book 65, Number 286)"

Islam came to liberate all slaves and to end the Judeo-Christian and Pagan slavery that was practiced before Islam.  When Allah Almighty made lawful for the Muslim men to have sex with their slave women, He did it to keep the Islamic society back then during Islam's weak, partial and venerable times under control.

Also, if any compulsion was made unto the slave woman, then Allah Almighty will add more mercy and forgiveness unto her in the Day of Judgement.  Below is the commentary on this exact section and point in Noble Verse 24:33 by Minister (Sheikh) Abdullah Yusuf Ali; may Allah Almighty rest his soul:

"The poor unfortunate girls, who are victims of such a nefarious trade (i.e., slave trade), will yet find mercy from Allah, whose bounties extend to the lowest of His creatures." [2]

There are other Noble Verses in the Noble Quran where Allah Almighty grants forgiveness and mercy to those who had been forced into illegal things:

"He hath only forbidden you Dead meat, and blood, And the flesh of swine, And that on which Any other name hath been invoked Besides that of Allah.   But if one is forced by necessity, Without willful disobedience, Nor transgressing due limits -- Then is he guiltless.  For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  (The Noble Quran, 2:173)"

"Why should ye not Eat of (meats) on which Allah's name hath been Pronounced, when He hath Explained to you in detail What is forbidden to you -- Except under compulsion Of necessity?  But many do mislead (men) By their appetites unchecked By knowledge.  Thy Lord Knoweth best those who transgress.   (The Noble Quran, 6:119)"

So the answer to the question is:  No, the Muslim man can not rape his slave woman according to the commands of Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran.

Important Note:  Please read the "Response to the "Proofs" that men can rape their slave-girls in Islam" section toward the bottom of this article for more proofs.

Also, in the Bible's Deuteronomy 20:13-14, in which it clearly gives orders to kill all the men and to take all of the women and children as slaves.  No where in the Noble Quran do we have any order to kill any innocent life.

Can a Muslim man rape his domestic maid girl?

The following is an email I received from Becky; may Allah Almighty lead her to Islam.  Her points are preceded with "Becky-" and my responses are preceded with "Osama-".

Subj:    Deliberate Deception
Date:    12/4/01 8:59:54 AM Central Standard Time
From:    becky@emirates.net.ae (Becky)
To:    ISLM4EVR1@aol.com

Mr. Osama

I have not yet got a reply from you for this mail I am still waiting

Becky- If a young innocent and helpless house maid (domestic helper) wants to preserve her chastity or remain a virgin and keep herself pure Allah says to his followers not to force them to prostitution, however if someone forces them into prostitution or forces them to lose their chastity (rapes them) he can do this heinous crime under the secure knowledge that Allah will be forgiving and merciful,

Osama- Mrs. Becky, I first of all want to apologize for taking 4 months to reply to your email.  This sometimes happens when I receive difficult requests. 

Now as to Noble Verse 24:33, it doesn't apply to domestic maids today.  It was revealed to deal with the captives of war.  Please read the "Can a Muslim man rape his slave woman?" section above which I just recently added for more details.

Becky- UNBELIEVABLE If you say that Allah being forgiving and merciful refers to the maid then this would be a sick joke because someone raped or forced into prostitution does not need forgiveness and mercy but and justice and dignity, this is clearly a license and protection offered to the offender. 

Osama- This is all fine in our standards today.  But if you had to start a religion by yourself as Prophet Muhammad did through the commands of Allah Almighty, and face 365 opposing Pagan Arab tribes, then the situation is quite different.  

The Muslims had no Islamic State to take care of their social issues and the Captives of war.  Muslims had to divide the responsibility among themselves.  It is also important to know that Muslims were much merciful to their slaves than the Jews, Christians and the Pagan Arabs.  I don't have to remind you of the Bible's Deuteronomy 20:13-14, in which it clearly gives orders to kill all the men and to take all of the women and children as slaves.  No where in the Noble Quran do we have any order to kill any innocent life Becky.

Please visit The Bible is corrupt according to its Historians and Theologians.

Again, please read the "Can a Muslim man rape his slave woman?" section above which I just recently added, to see how Allah Almighty commands the Muslim men to grant the freedom to those slaves who request it and to pay them money on top of it.  You will also see how Allah Almighty commanded the Muslim men to not force their maids into sex.   You will also see how Allah Almighty in Noble Verse 24:33 and other Noble Verses grants forgiveness and mercy to those who had been forced into illegal things.

Please visit Human rights and equality in Christianity and Islam.

Becky- Now lets see how the Muslim scholars translating the Quran deal with this issue

Pickthall, an-Nur 24:33
Force not your slave-girls to whoredom that ye may seek enjoyment of the life of the world, if they would preserve their chastity. And if one force them, then (unto them), after their compulsion, lo! Allah will be Forgiving, Merciful.

Shakir, an-Nur 24:33
and do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, when they desire to keep chaste, in order to seek the frail good of this world's life; and whoever compels them, then surely after their compulsion Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

Yusufali, an-Nur 24:33
But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is God, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them),

The first two translators clearly state that Allah is and will be forgiving and merciful to the offenders, while Mr. Yusufali clearly embarrassed by such an unimaginable prospect tries to escape by twisting his translation to appear like a question is God merciful to them (the offenders)? A sentence cannot be a statement and a question at the same time it has to be only one

1. If the later part of an-Nur 24:33 is a statement then Yusufali has deliberately twisted his translation to look like a question thereby deceiving the reader of the Quran.

2. And if it is a question then both translators Pickthall and Shakir have deliberately tried to malign the name of Allah by making him the protector of those who commit heinous crimes against the most helpless beings on earth

Osama- The Abdullah Yusuf Ali translation is not raising a question.  The "is God, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them)," is referring to the mercy and forgiveness that Allah Almighty will further grant the victim:

"The poor unfortunate girls, who are victims of such a nefarious trade (i.e., slave trade), will yet find mercy from Allah, whose bounties extend to the lowest of His creatures." [2]

Again, please read the "Can a Muslim man rape his slave woman?" section above which I just recently added, to see how Allah Almighty commands the Muslim men to grant the freedom to those slaves who request it and to pay them money on top of it.  You will also see how Allah Almighty commanded the Muslim men to not force their maids into sex.   You will also see how Allah Almighty in Noble Verse 24:33 and other Noble Verses grants forgiveness and mercy to those who had been forced into illegal things.

Becky- Only one of the two can be correct so please let me know which one and also I dare you to post this on your web site along with the reply you send (if any) in response to the above. 

Osama- All three translations are the same Becky, with the exception that Abdullah Yusif Ali translation is clearer.  As to your challenge for me to post your email, I hope I satisfied it for you.

A good answer from brother Maalik Adib to Becky; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him:

From: "maalik adib" <maalik@nycap.rr.com>

Subject: Your answer to Becky
Date: Thu, 21 Mar 2002 12:42:22 -0500

As-salaamu alaikum:

Akhi, I just read your response to "Becky" and you seemed to have left out one very important fact.  The mercy and forgiveness mentioned in the Ayah is for the women who are forced into prostitution not the men. 

Becky herself quotes the Yusuf Ali translation.  I have never seen a Yusuf Ali translation not accompanied with the commentary and even in the commentary it clearly states the following (note 2994): 

"The poor unfortunate girls, who are victims of such a nefarious trade, will yet find mercy from Allah, whose bounties extend to the lowest of His creature." [2] 

When you read the verse in its full context it becomes quite clear who are the subject of the mercy and forgiveness.  This is right in line with the Islamic concept of people not be held responsible when they are forced against their will to commit a sin.   If Becky has a problem with this reasoning then she can check the following verses of the Qur'aan herself: 

"He hath only forbidden you Dead meat, and blood, And the flesh of swine, And that on which Any other name hath been invoked Besides that of Allah.   But if one is forced by necessity, Without willful disobedience, Nor transgressing due limits -- Then is he guiltless.  For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.   (The Noble Quran, 2:173)"

"Why should ye not Eat of (meats) on which Allah's name hath been Pronounced, when He hath Explained to you in detail What is forbidden to you -- Except under compulsion Of necessity?  But many do mislead (men) By their appetites unchecked By knowledge.  Thy Lord Knoweth best those who transgress.  (The Noble Quran, 6:119)"

In addition, the Qur'aan tells us about those who, by force, renounce their faith in Islam and that they will not be held accountable because they were forced.  This is a very clear and well know principle in Islam. Besides the verse is clear anyway. 

If further proof is needed, again, she can simply read the Yusuf Ali commentary.   If that isn't enough, then she can also read: 

Mawdudi's commentary (Towards Understanding the Qur'aan) Vol VI 

or

The Noble Qur'aan

All three of these commentaries are in full agreement.  But if she has the Yusuf Ali translation then certainly she has seen the commentary on the verse in question.   Unless, like everyone else she is simply repeating what she heard from someone else and never actually read the entire verse at all. 

I even read this verse to my wife without mentioning any commentary and she understood that the mercy and forgives is directed at the girls forced into prostitution not the men.

Important Note:  Please read the "Response to the "Proofs" that men can rape their slave-girls in Islam" section toward the bottom of this article for more proofs.

Again, in the Bible's Deuteronomy 20:13-14, in which it clearly gives orders to kill all the men and to take all of the women and children as slaves.  No where in the Noble Quran do we have any order to kill any innocent life.

What is your comment about this translation of sura 24:33 by Syed A'la Maududi

Should those whom your right hands control desire their freedom, then draw up such a writ for them if you recognize anything worthwhile in them. Give them some of God's wealth which He has given you. Do not force your girls [whom you control] into prostitution so that you may seek the display of worldly life, if they want to preserve their chastity. Anyone who forces them (to do otherwise) [will find] God is Forgiving, Merciful, even after forcing them to.

Osama- Well since I showed ample proofs from very reliable and most used Islamic translations and interpretations of the Noble Quran that the mercy and forgiveness that Allah Almighty will grant, He will grant it to the victim in the sections "Can a Muslim man rape his slave woman?" and "Can a Muslim man rape his domestic maid girl?" above, and your reliable Islamic sources disagree with mine, then I have one answer for this part in Noble Verse 24:33:

1- Allah Almighty clearly and directly commands the Muslim men to honor their slave women's desire to remain chaste and to not force them into sex.

2- (this is the controversial interpretation part) If a Muslim man however rapes or forces his slave woman into sex, then Allah Almighty will still be Forgiving and Merciful (to her according to my sources), (to him according to your sources).

My acceptance of your reliable sources Becky would come with one addition:

Even though Allah Almighty wanted the Muslim men to honor their slave women's desires to refusing to have sex, but He at the same time did not deprive the Muslim men the right from having sex with their slave women when they desire them.   If all of the man's slave women desire to not have sex with him, and he is prohibited to enter upon any of them because of that, then this would be a total deprivation for the man and his rights.  So, if a man makes it clear to the slave woman or women that he could and would have sex with them if he desires them, and uses some physical force if he needed to, then the message will be sent clearly to the women and he will find Allah Almighty Forgiving and Merciful for him.

However, if the man abuses his power, and forces himself upon his slave women excessively, then he is violating Allah Almighty's command to honor the women's desires to remain chaste.

I must remind you that Islam came to end slavery and Allah Almighty commanded the Muslims to grant their slaves their freedom if the slaves requested it:

"Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until God gives them means out of His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing (to enable them to earn their freedom for a certain sum), give them such a deed if ye know any good in them: yea, give them something yourselves out of the means which God has given to you. But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is God, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them),  (The Noble Quran, 24:33)"

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him also said:

Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari:  "The Prophet said, "Give food to the hungry, pay a visit to the sick and release (set free) the one in captivity (by paying his ransom).(Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Food, Meals, Volume 7, Book 65, Number 286)"

Islam came to liberate all slaves and to end the Judeo-Christian and Pagan slavery that was practiced before Islam.  When Allah Almighty made lawful for the Muslim men to have sex with their slave women, He did it to keep the Islamic society back then during Islam's weak, partial and venerable times under control.

Again, I don't have to remind you of the Bible's Deuteronomy 20:13-14, in which it clearly gives orders to kill all the men and to take all of the women and children as slaves.  No where in the Noble Quran do we have any order to kill any innocent life.

2-  Women in Paradise:

In regards to the Physical Pleasures that will exist in Heaven, it is only normal to have them.  It is not known if the Prophet peace be upon him said the above exact numbers about the Houris and Virgins in Paradise.  As I proved above, the hadiths of Al-Tabari and Ibn-Ishaq are considered "unauthenticated" by most Muslim scholars, and most of the Hadiths in the rest of the volumes are also doubtful because of their uncertain chain of narrations.

Having said that, let's examine Craig Winn's Bible:


According to the Bible, weren't Adam and Eve created in Heaven and in physical bodies?

Wasn't Eve created from Adam's rib?


Also, didn't GOD Almighty create sex?

Wasn't it He who created the penises and vaginas and the sexual sensations in humans??

Wasn't He, the Almighty, who Created the process of sexual intercourse and the sperms and eggs??


There are several articles that I wrote regarding Heaven and Hell in Islam:

Will Hell eventually be empty?  For how long will Allah Almighty punish some of His creation?

Almost every single Christian is going to hell according to the Bible.

Sheol in the Bible:  Hell and Death.

Would you describe Heaven and Hell according to the Islamic doctrine?

Response to the so called "Pornography" in the Noble Quran.

Paradise: Who are the People of Paradise? And who are the "Muminoon (Believers)" in Islam?

Paradise: Ways that lead to Paradise.

Does Paradise in Islam really have Homosexuality in it?

Is our destiny pre-determined by GOD?  Does GOD choose who is evil and who is good?  How come GOD didn't make all of us good if He is the "Most Merciful" and "Most Just"? 

Did GOD create some Men and Jinns to be destined to hell?

After death, what would prevent a Muslim from entering Heaven?  Also, how long will the Disbelievers stay in Hell?

How does a Muslim get to Heaven, saved, reach a state of perfect harmony with God?

 


From www.answering-christianity.com/heaven_hell.htm:


Would you describe Heaven and Hell according to the Islamic doctrine?

The sections of this article are:

-  Heaven in Islam.
      - Heaven is the Home of Peace.  No evil will exist in it.
      - What is the size of it?
-  Who lives beside humans in Paradise?
      - Servants and Houris.
      - Unity with our families.
      - We will enjoy the Presence of Allah Almighty.
-  Will time in Heaven ever end?
-  What about women in paradise. Will they too have Companions and Servants?

- The levels of Hell.
      - The food and drink in Hell.
-  Hell according to Islam will eventually be empty.
-  Heaven according to the Noble Quran and Hadiths description - by
salvi@bigates.com


Well, according to Islam, both Heaven and Hell have different levels of pleasure and punishment respectively. 

 

Heaven in Islam:

I was told by a Muslim scholar and minister at the Mosque that Allah Almighty created Heaven with 500 levels.  The highest level will have the Prophets, the Martyrs and the most righteous, loving and pious believers the world ever had.  The lowest level of paradise will be for those who barely made it to Heaven.  The portion each person will have in the lowest level will be five times bigger than the size of the planet earth.

The following Hadith (Saying of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him) further prove that Heaven has multiple levels in it:

Abdullah b. Mas'ud reported that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:   "I know the last of the inhabitants of Fire to be taken out therefrom, and the last of the inhabitants of Paradise to enter it. A man will come out of the Fire crawling. Then Allah, the Blessed and Exalted will say to him: Go and enter Paradise. So he would come to it and it would appear to him as if it were full. He would go back and say: O my Lord! I found it full. Allah, the Blessed and Exalted, would say to him: Go and enter Paradise. He would come and perceive as if it were full. He would return and say: O my Lord! I found it full. Allah would say to him: Go and enter Paradise, for there is for you the like of the world and ten times like it, or for you is ten times the like of this world. He (the narrator) said. He (that man) would say: Art Thou making a fun of me? or Art Thou laughing at me. though Thou art the King? He (the narrator) said: I saw the Messenger of Allah laugh till his front teeth were visible. And it was said: That would be the lowest rank among the inhabitants of Paradise.  (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book of Faith (Kitab Al-Iman), Book 001, Number 0359)"


All people from the highest to the lowest levels will be able to communicate with each others.  However, no one will be able to live or enjoy the pleasure of the higher levels than what he already has.  He can go to the lower levels, but he can't go to the higher ones:

"They will recline (with ease) On Thrones (of dignity) Arranged in ranks; And We shall join them To Companions, with beautiful Big and lustrous eyes.  And those who believe And whose families follow Them in Faith -- to them Shall We join their families:  Nor shall We deprive them (Of the fruit) of aught Of their works:  (Yet) is each individual In pledge for his deeds.   (The Noble Quran, 52:20-21)"

Even though the winners of Paradise will be "arranged in ranks", as I mentioned above with the 500 different levels of Paradise, but they will still be joined with their families and loved ones from the Companions.

So, let's say we have a mother and a son.  The mother was admitted to level 256, and the son was admitted to level 310.  Both the mother and the son can still see each others, but she won't be able to enjoy the things her son is enjoying, nor will he be able to share them with her.

It is similar to us here on earth, where if we have two friends, one is a multi millionaire and the other is a poor fellow.  Both men can still be friends and go out together, but the millionaire guy most probably eats better food, drives a better car, lives in a much fancier and bigger house, lives in a much better and more expensive and fancier neighborhood, wears better and more expensive cloths, wears better smelling perfumes, vacations to better and more fun places and expensive places, etc.... 

No dung, piss, bad body odor, bad breath, or bad sweat smell will exist in Heaven.   The food and the drinks that we consume into our bodies will turn into great smelling musk.  The higher the person's level in Paradise the better his smell will be.

Also in Paradise, all people will be pure in the heart.  No jealousy or bad feelings will exist.  Allah Almighty will cause everyone to be happy for what he/she has. 

 

Heaven is the Home of Peace.  No evil will exist in it:

As Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran, Heaven will be the Home of Peace.  Not even an atom of evil of any kind will exist in it:

"For them will be a Home Of Peace in the presence Of their Lord: He will be Their Friend, because They practised (righteousness).  (The Noble Quran, 6:127)"

"But Allah doth call To the Home of Peace: He doth guide whom He pleaseth to a Way that is straight.  (The Noble Quran, 10:25)"

"And We shall remove from their hearts any lurking sense of injury;- beneath them will be rivers flowing;- and they shall say: 'Praise be to God, who hath guided us to this (felicity): never could we have found guidance, had it not been for the guidance of God: indeed it was the truth, that the apostles of our Lord brought unto us.' And they shall hear the cry: 'Behold! the garden before you! Ye have been made its inheritors, for your deeds (of righteousness).'  (The Noble Quran, 7:43)"

"And they will say: 'Praise be to Allah, Who has removed from us (All) sorrow: for our Lord Is indeed Oft-Forgiving Ready to appreciate (service).  (The Noble Quran, 35:34)"

"Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those Who claim sanctity For themselves? Nay -- but Allah Doth sanctify Whom He pleaseth, But never will they Fail to receive justice In the least little thing.  (The Noble Quran, 4:49)"

"O ye who believe! Follow not Satan's footsteps: If any will follow the footsteps Of Satan, he will (but) command What is shameful and wrong: And were it not for the grace And mercy of Allah on you, Not one of you would ever Have been pure: but Allah Doth purify whom He pleases: And Allah is One Who Hears and knows (all things).  (The Noble Quran, 24:21)"

According to the Noble Verses above, Heaven is the Home of Peace where the winners of Paradise will live in peace and harmony with each others and with Allah Almighty.  He will remove all evil from their hearts and purify them.

 

What is the size of it?

Even though Allah Almighty never gave the exact area of it, but He did give us valuable information about it's size:

"Be ye foremost (in seeking) Forgiveness from your Lord, And a Garden (of Bliss), The width whereof is As the width of Heaven and earth, Prepared for those who believe In Allah and His messengers:  That is the Grace of Allah, Which He bestows on whom He pleases: and Allah is The Lord of Grace abounding.   (The Noble Quran, 57:21)"

"Be quick in the race For forgiveness from your Lord, And for a Garden whose width Is that (of the whole) Of the heavens And the earth, Prepared for the righteous.  (The Noble Quran, 3:133)"

In Arabic the plural and singular of the word "heaven" can be the same depending on the use of the word in the sentence.  In Noble Verse 57:21, Allah Almighty used the word "heaven" for the Universe, and in Noble Verse 3:133, He used the word "heavens".

Allah Almighty mentioned that He created seven heavens to form the universe.  We are living in the lowest heaven, or heaven number 1.  If the width of Paradise is as equal as the width of the universe starting from the earth and ending in the seventh heaven, then this should give us a very clear picture that the size of Heaven is unbelievably huge!

 

Who lives beside humans in Paradise?

Angels, Jinns and Humans and the Servants and Houris of Paradise will live there.   All inhabitants of Heaven will be able to communicate with each others, whether they are Jinns with Humans or Humans with Angels or Jinns with Angels.  But since each one of them is created differently from the others, their will be limitations to some of the communication there such as marriage and sex.  Humans for instance can't marry or have sex with the Angels or the Jinns, and vise versa to the rest.

Anyway, each human person in Paradise will have his own world.  In his world he will have lofty mansions, beautiful nature, great food; plenty of tasty meat, fruits, vegetables, rivers of honey and milk, and other great gifts of anything he desires from Allah Almighty:

"But it is for those Who fear their Lord, That lofty mansions, One above another, Have been built: Beneath them flow Rivers (of delight): (such is) The promise of Allah: Never doth Allah fail in (His) promise.  (The Noble Quran, 39:20)"

"But those who believe And work deeds of righteousness -- To them shall We give A Home in Heaven -- Lofty mansions beneath which Flow rivers -- to dwell therein For aye -- an excellent reward For those who do (good)! -- Those who preserve in patience, And put their trust In their Lord and Cherisher.  (The Noble Quran, 29:58-59)"

"And We shall bestow On them, of fruit and meat, Anything they shall desire.  (The Noble Quran, 52:22)"

"(To them will be said:) 'Eat and drink ye, With profit and health, Because of your (good) deeds.  (The Noble Quran, 52:19)"

"Therein will they Recline (at ease):  Therein can they Call (at pleasure) For fruit in abundance, And (delicious) drink;  (The Noble Quran, 38:51)"

"(Here is) a Parable of the Garden which the righteous are promised: in it are rivers of water incorruptible; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes; rivers of wine, a joy to those who drink; and rivers of honey pure and clear. In it there are for them all kinds of fruits; and Grace from their Lord. (Can those in such Bliss) be compared to such as shall dwell for ever in the Fire, and be  given, to drink, boiling water, so that it cuts up their bowels (to pieces)?   (The Noble Quran, 47:15)"

 

Servants and Houris:

Every winner of Paradise's world will also be filled with Servants and virgin Houris.   All winners of Paradise will enjoy the service of the young Servants and virgin Houris:

"Round about them will (serve) Youths of perpetual (freshness), With goblets, (shinning) beakers, And cups (filled) out of Clear-flowing fountains:  No after-ache will they Receive therefrom, nor will they Suffer intoxication.  (The Noble Quran, 56:17-19)"

"Round about them will serve, (Devoted) to them, Youths (handsome) as Pearls Well-guarded.  They will advance To each other, engaging In mutual enquiry.  (The Noble Quran, 52:24-25)"

"And round about them Will (serve) youths Of perpetual (freshness): If thou seest them, Thou wouldst think them Scattered Pearls.  (The Noble Quran, 76:19)"

"We have created (their Companions) Of special creation, And made them Virgin-pure (and undefiled) -- Beloved (by nature) Equal in age -- For the Companions Of the Right Hand.  (The Noble Quran, 56:35-38)"

"And besides them will be Chaste women; restraining Their glances, with big eyes (Of wonder and beauty).  As if they were (Delicate) eggs closely guarded.  (The Noble Quran, 37:48-49)"

"And beside them will be Chaste women restraining Their glances, (companions) Of equal age.  Such is the Promise Made to you For the Day of Account!  Truly such will be Our Bounty (to you) It will never fail.  (The Noble Quran, 38:52-54)"

"As to the Righteous (They will be) in A position of Security.  Among Gardens and Springs; Dressed in fine silk And in rich brocade, They will face each other; Moreover, We shall Join them to Companions With beautiful, big, And lustrous eyes.  There can they call For every kind of fruit In peace and security.  Nor will they there Taste Death, except the first Death; and He will preserve Them from the Penalty Of the Blazing Fire.  (The Noble Quran, 44:51-56)"

"They will recline (with ease) On Thrones (of dignity) Arranged in ranks; And We shall join them To Companions, with beautiful Big and lustrous eyes.  And those who believe And whose families follow Them in Faith -- to them Shall We join their families:  Nor shall We deprive them (Of the fruit) of aught Of their works:  (Yet) is each individual In pledge for his deeds.   (The Noble Quran, 52:20-21)"

"In them will be (Maidens), Chaste, restraining their glances, Whom no man or Jinn Before them has touched.  (The Noble Quran, 55:56)"

"In them will be Fair (Companions), good, beautiful.  (The Noble Quran, 55:70)"

"Companions restrained (as to Their glances), in (goodly) pavilions.  (The Noble Quran, 55:72)"

"And (there will be) Companions With beautiful, big, And lustrous eyes -- Like unto Pearls Well-guarded.  A Reward for the Deeds Of their past (Life).  (The Noble Quran, 56:22-24)"

"Gardens enclosed, and Grapevines; Companions of Equal Age; And a Cup full (To the Brim).  (The Noble Quran, 78:32-34)"

 

Unity with our families:

Even though each person will be rewarded a certain level in Paradise, but as I said everyone will be able to communicate with the others.  The People of Paradise will be like one big loving family, with different goods for each person.  Allah Almighty promised the Believers that they will be reunited with their believing families in Paradise:

"They will recline (with ease) On Thrones (of dignity) Arranged in ranks; And We shall join them To Companions, with beautiful Big and lustrous eyes.  And those who believe And whose families follow Them in Faith -- to them Shall We join their families:  Nor shall We deprive them (Of the fruit) of aught Of their works:  (Yet) is each individual In pledge for his deeds.   (The Noble Quran, 52:20-21)"

Narrated Anas:  "A man asked the Prophet about the Hour (i.e. Day of Judgment) saying, "When will the Hour be?" The Prophet said, "What have you prepared for it?" The man said, "Nothing, except that I love Allah and His Apostle." The Prophet said, "You will be with those whom you love." We had never been so glad as we were on hearing that saying of the Prophet (i.e., "You will be with those whom you love.") Therefore, I love the Prophet, Abu Bakr and 'Umar, and I hope that I will be with them because of my love for them though my deeds are not similar to theirs.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Companions of the Prophet, Volume 5, Book 57, Number 37)"

Even though the winners of Paradise will be "arranged in ranks", as I mentioned above with the 500 different levels of Paradise, but they will still be joined with their families and loved ones from the Companions as clearly shown in Noble Verses 52:20-21 and the Hadith (Saying) of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

 

We will enjoy the Presence of Allah Almighty:

The greatest things that will happen to us in Heaven is that Allah Almighty will be present there.  We will be able to directly communicate with Him, and He will be our friend, and we will be able to live near Him:

"For them will be a Home Of Peace in the presence Of their Lord: He will be Their Friend, because They practised (righteousness).  (The Noble Quran, 6:127)"

"There will be for them Therein all that they wish -- And more besides In Our Presence.  (The Noble Quran, 50:35)"

"And Allah sets forth, As an example To those who believe, The wife of Pharaoh: Behold she said: 'O my Lord! build For me, in nearness To Thee, a mansion In the Garden, And save me from Pharaoh And his doings, And save me from Those that do wrong'  (The Noble Quran, 66:11)"

"Verily, for the Righteous, Are Gardens of Delight, In the Presence of their Lord.  (The Noble Quran, 68:34)"

 

Will time in Heaven ever end?

The following information was taken from the "What does "forever" really mean?" section in the Hell according to Islam will eventually be empty article:

"Those who are wretched shall be in the Fire:  There will be for them therein (nothing but) the heaving of sighs and sobs:  They will dwell therein for all the time that the heavens and the earth endure, except as thy Lord willeth:  for thy Lord is the (sure) accomplisher of what He planneth. And those who are blessed shall be in the Garden:  They will dwell therein for all the time that the heavens and the earth endure, except as thy Lord willeth:  a gift without break.  (The Noble Quran, 11:106-108)"

Notice in these Noble Verses that the time limit that Allah Almighty had set for Paradise is endless and is a "gift without break", while the time for Hell is limited to "the time that the heavens and the earth endure, except as thy Lord willeth".   It is clear that the time in Hell in the Noble Quran is limited and the time in Paradise never ending.

Notice the assurance of Allah Almighty about the time of Paradise being infinite, while He didn't make the same claim about the time of Hell.  In fact, He left the time of Hell open and unclear, which clearly proves that Hell will eventually be empty according to Islam, or to say the least, it will not be infinite in time as Paradise.

 

What about women in paradise. Will they too have Companions and Servants?

I wrote a detailed article before that covered the topic and gifts for women in Paradise:

Does Paradise in Islam really have Lesbianism in it?

 

Hell in Islam:

Hell according to Islam is a purifying place that Allah Almighty will use for punishing those whom He Wills for their sins, and to purify all of those who are badly corrupted by Satan's dirt from temptations and evil intentions toward others such as envy, insolence, and other evil things.

All of those who will enter Paradise shall be purified.  Please read the "Heaven is the Home of Peace.  No evil will exist in it" sub section above for more details.

Also please visit Where do Martyrs go after death?  And will they be judged for their good and bad deeds?

After death, what would prevent a Muslim from entering Heaven?  Also, how long will the Disbelievers stay in Hell?

How does a Muslim get to Heaven, saved, reach a state of perfect harmony with God?

I liked your concept of God in Islam and that man can directly have fellowship with God.  But how does God stand the sin in man ? How does God see the sin between man and man?

 

The levels of Hell:

It appears from the Noble Quran that Hell will have 7 levels with 19 Guards:

"And verily, Hell Is the promised abode For them all!  To it are seven Gates: For each of those Gates Is a (special) class (Of sinners) assigned.  (The Noble Quran, 15:43-44)"

"Over it are Nineteen (i.e., guards).  And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, 'What symbol doth God intend by this?'  Thus doth God leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind.  (The Noble Quran, 74:30-31)"

Please visit Yes, the number 19 is miraculous in the Noble Quran and was proven to be essential in many of the Scientific Theories and Discoveries.

There are certainly levels of punishment in Hell.  The hypocrites will be in the most painful one:

"The Hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire: no helper wilt thou find for them;  (The Noble Quran, 4:145)"

Please visit Muslims be careful from the Muslim hypocrites.

 

The food and drink in Hell:

Let us look at what Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran:

"Is that the better entertainment Or the Tree of Zaqqum?   For We have truly Made it (as) a trial For the wrongdoers.  For it is a tree That springs out Of the bottom of Hellfire:  That shoots of its fruit-stalks Are like the heads Of devils:  Truly they will eat thereof And fill their bellies therewith.  Then on top of that They will be given A mixture made of Boiling water.  Then shall their return Be to the (Blazing) Fire.  (The Noble Quran, 37:62-68)"

The Noble Verses are pretty much self explanatory.  Life in Hell is really Hell!   The food the that will be offered is from the Tree of Zaqqum, which fruits-stalks look like heads of devils, and the drinking water will be a boiling water.

 

Hell according to Islam will eventually be empty:

I've written a long article about this, backed with so many Noble Verses from the Noble Quran that clearly and directly and unquestionably prove that Hell will be empty.

Please visit Hell according to Islam will eventually be empty.

 

Heaven according to the Noble Quran and Hadiths description:

The following article was sent to me by brother/sister salvi@bigates.com; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him/her.

Paradise: Description in the Qur'an

Our final destination is the life of the Hereafter.  Where we end up, Jannah (Paradise) or Jahannam (Hell-fire) depends on what we worked towards in this life.   Paradise is the aim and the hope of every Muslim.  But like trying to attain any goal, in order to achieve success, one must have a well-defined plan, and it must be implemented to be successful.  Allah says, "O you who believe! Be careful of (your duty to) Allah and seek means of nearness to Him and strive hard in His way that you may be successful." [5:35]   To prepare for our journey, we need to find out what our destination is like; who are its people, and most importantly, how to get there.

The Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, told us that within Paradise are things that no eyes have ever seen, nor ears have ever heard, and that things in it are beyond our imagination and comprehension, but we all have our own personal ideas of what eternal bliss would probably be like.  I remember a few years ago, I overheard my niece and my nephew discussing the landscape, and the privileges of living in Jannah. My nephew was telling my niece that in Jannah, they would be able to eat all the candy that they wanted and that there would be streams of chocolate and trees of ice cream.  I always tell people, that Paradise for me, would be being able to eat all the cheesecake and chocolate that I wanted, without gaining a pound.  But what Allah has in store for the believers is so much more than this.  He, in His Book, and through His Messenger, sallallahu alayhe  wasallam, has given us a clear picture of our goal, so that we can keep it in front of us at all times.  By keeping our eyes on theprize, no matter our hardships in this worldly life, we can strive that much harder to attain it.

Allah says, "And whoever desires the Hereafter and strives for it as he ought to strive and he is a believer; (as for) these, their striving shall surely be accepted." [17:19]  Allah has also described Paradise in many places in the Qur'an, so let us now take a look at what He has in store for the believers.


Description in the Qur'an of Paradise

“The description of Paradise which the Muttaqoon have been promised is that in it are rivers of water, the taste and smell of which are never changed. Rivers of milk the taste of which will remain unchanged. Rivers of wine that will be delicious to those who drink from it and rivers of clear, pure honey. For them will be every kind of fruit and forgiveness form their Lord." [47:15] 

"And their recompense shall be Paradise, and silken garments, because they were patient. Reclining on raised thrones, they will see there neither the excessive heat of the sun, nor the excessive bitter cold, (as in Paradise there is no sun and no moon). The shade will be close upon them, and bunches of fruit will hang low within their reach. Vessels of silver and cups of crystal will be passed around amongst them, crystal-clear, made of silver. They will determine the measure of them according to their wishes. They will be given a cup (of wine) mixed with Zanjabeel, and a fountain called Salsabeel. Around them will (serve) boys of perpetual youth. If you see them, you would think they are scattered pearls. When you look there (in Paradise) you will see a delight (that can not be imagined), and a Great Dominion. Their garments will be of fine green silk and gold embroidery. They will be adorned with bracelets of silver, and their Lord will give them a pure drink." [76:12-21]

"And those foremost (In Tawheed and obedience to Allah and His Messenger in this life) will be foremost (in Paradise). They will be those nearest to Allah in the Gardens of Delight. A multitude of those (the foremost) will be from the first generation (who embraced Islam) and a few of those (the foremost) will be from the later (generations). They will be reclining, face to face, on thrones woven with gold and precious stones. They will be served by immortal boys, with cups and jugs, and a glass from the flowing wine, from which they will have neither any headache, nor any intoxication. They will have fruit from which they may choose, and the flesh of fowls that they desire. There will be Houris with wide, lovely eyes (as wives for the pious), like preserved pearls, a reward for deeds that they used to do. They will hear no vain or sinful speech (like backbiting, etc.) but only the saying of: Salam, Salam, (greetings of peace). And those on the Right Hand, who will be those on the Right Hand? They will be among thorn-less lote-trees among Talh (banana trees) with fruits piled one above another, in long-extended shade, by constantly flowing water, and fruit in plenty, whose season is not limited, and their supply will not be cut off. They will be on couches or thrones raised high. Verily, We have created for them (maidens) of equal age, loving (their husbands only). For those on the Right Hand." [56:10-38]

"Verily, the dwellers of Paradise that Day, will be busy in joyful things. They and their wives will be in pleasant shade, reclining on thrones. They will have therein fruits (of all kinds), and all that they will ask for. (It will be said to them): "Salamun" (Peace be on you), a Word from the Lord, Most Merciful." [36:55-58] 

Can you imagine?  Wearing the finest silk clothing and sitting on chairs made of gold and precious stones?  Those who disbelieve in the words of Allah, say that this is all a fairy-tale, made up by a would-be prophet.  But we know, that Allah is the Truthful and that His Messenger, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, spoke only what was revealed to from the Most Truthful.  And even though Allah describes Paradise for us in the Qur'an, He still says, "So no soul knows the delights of the eyes which is hidden for them; a reward for what they did." [32:17]

Apart from the Qur'anic descriptions of Paradise, the Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu alayhe wa sallam, would often describe Paradise to his companions.  His descriptions were oftentimes so vivid and moving, that many-a-companion would hurriedly rush towards it.  This was the case, as Anas narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, and his companions proceeded towards Badr and arrived there before the disbelievers (of Makkah).  When the disbelievers arrived, the Messenger of Allah said, "None of you should step forward ahead of me to do anything."  Then the disbelievers advanced (towards us), and the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, said, "Rise to enter Paradise whose width is equal to the Heavens and the Earth." Umayr Ibnul Humam al-Ansari asked, "O Messenger of Allah, is Paradise equal in width to the heavens and the earth?" He, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "Yes." Umayr said, "Bak'hin! Bak'hin!" (An Arabic word denoting excitement and astonishment) The Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, asked him, "What made you say these words: Bak'hin, Bak'hin?" He said, "Messenger of Allah, nothing but the desire to be amongst its residents." He, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "You are surely among its residents." He then took some dates form his bag and began to eat them. Then he said, "If I were to live until I had eaten all of the dates, indeed this life would be too long." Anas then said, "He threw away the remaining dates he had with him. He then fought (the disbelievers) until he was killed." (Muslim)

What words could have inspired Umair and others like him to long for, and to pay the ultimate price for a place in Paradise?  Let's now take a look at what the Messenger of Allah, had to say about Paradise.


Paradise: Description in the Hadith

Abu Sa'eed Al-Khudri narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "The people of Paradise will look at the dwellers of lofty mansions (i.e. a superior place in Paradise) in the same way as one looks at a brilliant star, far away in the East or in the West of the horizon. This is because of their superiority over one another (in reward)." One of the people asked, "O Allah's Messenger, are these lofty mansions for the Prophets which no one else can reach?" The Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, replied, "No! By Allah, in whose Hands is my life, these are for men who believe in Allah and also believe in   the Messenger." (Bukhari and Muslim)

Abu Mousa al-Ash'ari narrated that the Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "Verily, for the believers in Paradise, are tents made of a single hollow pear. The length of which would be sixty miles long from all sides, their wives being therein. The believer will go around them (i.e., visit them) and they will not be able to see each other." (Sahih al-Jami)

Abu Hurairah said that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "There is not a tree in Paradise, except that its trunk is made of gold." (Sahih al-Jami)

Anas ibn Malik narrated that the Prophet, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "Verily in Paradise there is a market in which (the inhabitants of Paradise) will come to every Friday. The North wind will blow and scatter fragrances on their faces and on their clothes. This will add to their beauty and their attractiveness. They will then go back to their families after having an added luster to their beauty and their attractiveness. Their families will say to them, 'By Allah you have been increased in beauty and loveliness after leaving us,' and they will say, 'By Allah you too have increased in beauty and attractiveness after us.'" (Muslim)

Jabir ibn Abdullah narrated that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "(I saw in a dream that) I entered Paradise, and behold, there was a palace built of gold. I asked, 'Whose is this palace?' They (the angels) replied, 'For a man from the Quraysh.' So I thought it might be I, so I asked, 'And who is he?' They said, 'Umar Ibnul Khattab.' Nothing stopped me form entering it except your Ghirah (sense of honor)." Umar said, "My Ghirah would never be offended by you, O Messenger of Allah." (Bukhari and Muslim)

Anas ibn Malik said that Allah's Apostle sallallahu alayhe wasallam, said, "I entered Paradise and found myself by a river, by its edges were tents of pearls. Then I tapped with my hands where the water was running, and there was then a beautiful smell of Musk. I asked, 'What is this O Gabriel?' He said, 'This is Kawthar (river in Paradise) which Allah has given to you.'" (Sahih al-Jami)

Aisha in Islam:

Let's discuss the age of Aisha being 9 when she married our Prophet (CLICK HERE):

1-  See proofs, in the "Aisha being 9" article, from the Bible about little girls as young as 9 were married off and even sold off by their fathers as slave girls to men who were even older than their fathers.

2-  See also irrefutable proofs that pedophilia and terrorism exist in the Bible.  During the Mosaic times in the Bible's Old Testament, 3-year old slave girls were literally forced into sex under Moses' Orders and Command.  You sometimes have to read things twice to believe them!

*** Fathers sticking their fingers into their daughters' vaginas before marriage in the Bible.


3-
  See also proofs how Aisha's parents were the ones who married her to our Prophet, and that no Muslim or even pagan objected to the marriage because it was widely practiced.  The reason no one objected was:

  1. People used to have very short life-spans in Arabia.   They used to live between 40 to 60 years maximum.  So it was only normal and natural for girls to be married off at ages 9 or 10 or similar.

  2. Marriage for young girls was widely practiced among Arabs back then, and even today in many third-world non-Muslim and Muslim countries.

Scientific Miracles in Islam and the Noble Quran.

Most of the Bible's books and gospels were written by mysterious people!

Jesus mentioned Muhammad by the name in the Bible.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross.  I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken.   My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion.  I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
