The Source of these stories is weak:

A member on my blog, brother "zulfiqarchucknorris", sent me the following information:

Dear Osama Abdullah
I would like to inform you that on the many articles about the "poet killings" (specifically asma bint marwan) you fail to to include why the asma bint marwan chain for ibn saad is weak, although the ibn ishaq version is fully explained.  I'll give you the explanasion:

(copied from wikipedia, scroll toward the middle of the page)

Al-Albani declared Ibn Sa'd's chain of transmission to be weak as well, as it includes Al-Waqidi:[2]

Ibn Sa'd → Al-Waqidi → 'Abd Allah ibn al-Harith ibn al-Fudayl → Al-Harith ibn al-Fudayl

Al-Waqidi has been condemned as an untrustworthy narrator and has been frequently and severely criticized by scholars, thus his narrations have been abandoned by the majority of hadith scholars.[3] Yahya ibn Ma'een said: "Al-Waqidi narrated 20,000 false hadith about the prophet". Al-Shafi'i, Ahmad ibn Hanbal and Al-Albani[2] said: "Al-Waqidi is a liar" while Al-Bukhari said he didn't include a single letter by Al-Waqidi in his hadith works.

In addition, this isnad is discontinued (muʻḍal) as Al-Harith ibn al-Fudayl never met any of Muhammad's companions.[3]

2 is al waqidi
3 is ibn hisham



Assassinations of some hostile infidel poets:

There are stories about Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, ordering the Muslims to assassinate some pagan poets during war/hostile times with the Muslims.  Some brothers and sisters have given great answers to these stories [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9].  I too would like to give my answer to these stories and to give it to the reader flat with absolute pride in Islam!  There is nothing to be ashamed of in these stories.  On the contrary, I am very proud of them!

Please visit: Terrorism, pedophilia, mass-slaughters of children and much more in the Bible.

Arabs were addicted to poetry and they were very skilled in it too.  That is why the Noble Quran is Miraculous in Its Arabic language, because it was Allah Almighty's way to convince the pagan Arabs of Islam's Truth.  Through His Divine Mercy and Wisdom, He the Almighty, saw that this type of Miracle would be the most appropriate to the pagan Arabs.  We also must not forget Allah Almighty's Miracles for us today through the Scientific Miracles of the Noble Quran that we keep discovering more and more everyday.  Please visit: The Scientific Miracles in the Noble Quran.

Having said that, some of the pagan Arabs, who were very skilled in poetry, wrote powerful poetries against the Prophet and Islam.  These poetries could've been used as weapons to enrage the infidels against the Muslims as in pre-Islamic and even post-Islamic era, poetries were causes for wars between tribes.  So they were dangerous weapons for those who were very skilled in them.  So to make a pagan seriously think twice about writing a poetry against Islam, the Prophet, peace be upon him, ordered the Muslims to execute some anti-Islam poets, and by Allah Almighty's Divine Grace and Mercy, the strategy worked and Islam prevailed among the Arabs as more than 95% of them today are Muslims.

That's it!  The infidels died and they're now rotting in Hell, and their descendents are all saved from their deceptions and evil pagan worships through Islam.  All Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone!
