Arab News: Muhammad ordered murder of slave girls who mocked him

In “The Prophet as a Man — 108: War Preparedness,” Adil Salahi discusses how Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, ordered the assassination of slave girls who mocked him. From Arab News, with thanks to Fjordman, who writes: “Notice how Muslims admit quite openly that Muhammad wanted slave girls killed for no other reason than for the ‘crime’ of mocking Islam verbally, which is of course also what happened with Asma bint Marwan. The exact same rationale was behind the murder of Theo van Gogh in the Netherlands, which was thus in perfect accordance with Muhammad’s Sunna, his personal example, although Muslim and non-Muslim commentators alike tried to persuade us otherwise.”

You can read more about the killing of Asma bint Marwan, as ordered by Muhammad, and similar incidents in Muhammad’s life, in my book The Truth About Muhammad.

Says Salahi:

Abdullah ibn Khatal used to be a Muslim. The Prophet once sent him to collect zakah from people who lived far away. He traveled with another man and a servant of his who was a Muslim. At one stage on the way they stopped. He gave the servant orders to slaughter a big goat and prepare food for him while he himself went to sleep. When he woke up, he discovered that the servant had not done anything. He killed his servant and, fearing the Prophet’s punishment, reverted to idolatry. He also had two slave girls who used to sing for him and for his companions songs full of abuse of the Prophet. The Prophet’s instructions specified that the two slave girls should also be killed. The man was killed as he was actually holding on to the coverings of the Kaaba. Abu Barzah Al-Aslami and Saeed ibn Hurayth Al-Makhzumi killed him along with one of his slave girls. The other managed to flee until someone sought a special pardon for her from the Prophet, which he granted.
