In Islamic Sharia, it is allowed to rape the captive women of the war by making them slaves. This rape of captive women in Sharia is an abuse of humanity. But not even letting them mourn the dead bodies of their fathers/brothers/husbands/sons, and raping them in this state of trauma, makes it pure Satanic.
If the captives are virgin girls (or minor girls who have yet not menstruated), then Muslims are allowed to have sex with them the same night, even with penetration in their vaginas. But if the captive women had husbands, then Muslims were not allowed to penetrate their vaginas, but they were allowed to drive all other kinds of sexual pleasures the same night, such as kissing them, making them naked and enjoying their whole body (except for vagina), compelling them to masturbate them, rubbing their penis in their thighs, etc.
Imam Bukhari writes in his Sahih Bukhari (link):
باب هل يسافر بالجارية قبل أن يستبرئها ولم ير الحسن بأسا أن يقبلها أو يباشرها وقال ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما إذا وهبت الوليدة التي توطأ أو بيعت أو عتقت فليستبرأ رحمها بحيضة ولا تستبرأ العذراء وقال عطاء لا بأس أن يصيب من جاريته الحامل ما دون الفرج وقال الله تعالى إلا على أزواجهم أو ما ملكت أيمانهم
Chapter: If one buys a slave woman (who already has sex with the previous master), then could she be taken along in the journey?
Hassan Basri said that there is no problem in kissing such slave woman. Ibn Umar said if a slave girl already had sex with the previous master, and then she is bought by someone else or one gets as a present, then waiting period is one menses. But there is no waiting period for a virgin slave girl. And 'Ata said if a slave woman is pregnant from the previous master, then still all sexual pleasures could be driven from her, except for her vagina.
Even Judaism/Christianity allowed the captive women to mourn for full 30 days for their beloved ones, and before that, no one was allowed to marry them (Bible, Deuteronomy, Chap 21). While Buddhists (who are non-religious Agnostics in nature) were even much better as they first demolished all the slave markets and slave trade, and then finally all together demolished slavery by replacing it with the system of serfdom, thus giving freedom to all the slaves (link).

Muhammad had sex with Safiyyah right after killing his husband, father and the brother
Safiyyah was the daughter of a Jewish tribe leader. Prophet Muhammad killed his father, husband and brother in the battle of Khaybar, and then didn't even let her weep at their dead bodies, but distributed all the captive women on the same day as slave women among his companions. Safiyyah came in the possession of companion Dihya Al-Kalbi.
When companions described the "beauty" of Safiyah in front of Muhammad, then he gave 7 slave women to Dihya and got Safiyah for himself.
Sahih Muslim, Book of Marriage (link):
After the battle of Khaiber, the companion Dihya got beautiful slave woman (i.e Safiyah). When Prophet Muhammad came to know about the beauty of Safiyah, then he took her for himself and gave 7 slave women to Dihya as exchange for Safiyah. Then he handed her to Um Salim so that she could prepare her as bride for him.
According to Sahih Bukhari, when Muslims reached the place of Sadd Sahba (most probably the same day while it was only 16 miles away from Khaybar), then Safiya became pure of her menstruation, and at that time Muhammad slept with her.
Sahih Bukhari, Book of al-Maghazi (link):
Narrated Anas bin Malik: We arrived at Khaibar, and when Allah helped His Apostle to open the fort, the beauty of Safiya bint Huyai bin Akhtaq whose husband had been killed while she was a bride, was mentioned to Allah's Apostle. The Prophet selected her for himself, and set out with her, and when we reached a place called Sidd-as-Sahba,' Safiya became clean from her menses then Allah's Apostle took her into his bed.
The place of Sa`d-AsSahba is 14 miles away from Khaibar and it takes a one-day journey to reach Sa`d-AsSahba.
Please remember, a day before having sex with her, Muhammad killed the father, husband and brother of Safiyah in the battle of Khaybar. Muhammad gave no time to Safiyah even to weep for them.
Muslim apologists still defending Muhammad through lame excuses
Muslims present this excuse:
Book "Tabqat-Ibne-Saad", 8/123:
فقال: لها رسول الله: اختاري، فإن اخترت الإسلام أمسكتك لنفسي وإن اخترت اليهودية فعسى أن أعتقك فتلحقي بقومك. فقالت: يا رسول الله لقد هويت الإسلام وصدقت بك قبل أن تدعوني حيث صرت إلى رحلك وما لي في اليهودية أرب وما لي فيها والد ولا أخ، وخيرتني الكفر والإسلام فالله ورسوله أحب إلي من العتق وأن أرجع إلى قومي
... So, the Prophet said to her: ‘Make your choice, if you will choose Islam, I’ll select you for myself and if you chose Judaism, I’ll set you free and send you to your people.’ She said; ‘O Allah’s Messenger indeed I felt affection for Islam and testified for you even before you gave me this invitation when I came to you. I have no guardian among the Jews, neither father nor brother and I prefer Islam over disbelief. Allah and His Messenger are dear to me then freedom and to return to my people.
* It was very easy for the Muslims to fabricate the traditions in order to save the honour of their Prophet.
* The following tradition of Sahih Muslim totally refutes the tradition of Tabaqat, which tells that Muhammad set the condition of marrying him for her freedom.
Sahih Muslim, Book of Marriage (link):
Allah's Apostle emancipated Safiyya, and her emancipation was treated as her wedding gift.
Therefore, Muhammad didn't set her free first and then asked for marriage. But he conditioned her freedom with marriage to him.
* Also, this tradition is totally against the Rationale.
What had Sifiyyah done differently that Muhammad felt obliged to set her free?
Safiyyah was a normal prisoner, and she did absolutely nothing important that Muhammad felt obliged to set her free as a Jew and to send her back to her relatives.
It is very clear that Muhammad became overpowered by the beauty of Safiyyah, and he gave away 7 slave women for her in exchange. Therefore, clearly, the intention of Muhammad was not to set her free and sent her to Jews but to enjoy her beauty.
* We can see the same pattern of Muhammad going after the beautiful woman Juwayriyyah, who was the daughter of the leader of Banu al-Mustalq. Firstly, she was made a slave for a long time. Then she tried to buy her freedom and went to Muhammad to assist her. Muhammad looked at her, and he was overpowered by her beauty, and he blackmailed her that he would pay for her freedom if she marries her.
Sunan Abi Dawud, The Book of Manumission of Slaves (link):
Juwayriyyah, daughter of al-Harith ibn al-Mustaliq, fell to the lot of Thabit ibn Qays ibn Shammas, or to her cousin. She entered into an agreement to purchase her freedom. She was a very beautiful woman, most attractive to the eye. Aisha said: She then came to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) asking him for the purchase of her freedom. When she was standing at the door, I looked at her with disapproval. I realised that the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) would look at her in the same way that I had looked. She said: Apostle of Allah ... I have come to you to seek assistance for the purchase of my freedom. The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: Are you inclined to that which is better? She asked: What is that, Apostle of Allah? He replied: I shall pay the price of your freedom on your behalf, and I shall marry you. She said: I shall do this.
* And lastly, this "authentic" tradition of Muslims itself tells us that Safiya considered Muhammad as the "most hated" and abhorred person for killing his father, brother and husband.
Sahih Ibn Habban (11/607) (link):
عن عبد الله بن عمر رضي الله عنه قال : ... قالت صفية :وكان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من أبغض الناس إليَّ قَتل زوجي وأبي وأخي فما زال يعتذر إليَّ ويقول : ( إن أباك ألَّب علي العرب وفعل وفعل ) حتى ذهب ذلك من نفسي .۔۔ رواه ابن حبان في " صحيحه " ( 11 / 607 ) ، .
Abdullah Ibn Umar narrates that Safiya said:"Rasool Allah was among the most hated person for me, while he killed my husband, father and brother. Then he used to make excuses that my father used to incite the Arabs against him. He kept on apologizing for so long till I was no more angry.
Grading: Sahih (authentic)
This tradition is itself a testimony that Safiya was not happy with Muhammad after the killing of his husband, father and brother and considered him the most hateful person, and if she slept with him the very same night, then it was only in order to save herself from the harm that Muhammad could have inflicted upon her as a slave woman.
And according to the following tradition, at first, Safiyyah denied sleeping with Muhammad which even upset him.
Ibn Sa'd, al-Tabqat (link):
Safiyyah mounted the camel. The Prophet rode beside her and put a veil over her. They travelled with the Muslim army until they were six miles from Khaybar, the home of the enemy where the battle had taken place, where they stopped to rest. While they were resting, the Prophet wanted to consummate the marriage with her, but Safiyyah refused, which upset him. Reaching As-Sahbaa', which is sixteen miles away from Khaybar, Safiyyah obeyed him (and slept with him). He asked: "Why did you refuse during the first rest?" She replied, "O Messenger of Allah, I was afraid for you because the Jews were too near.” ( " مَا حَمَلَكِ عَلَى الَّذِي صَنَعْتِ حِينَ أَرَدْتُ أَنْ أَنْزِلَ الْمَنْزِلَ الأَوَّلَ فَأَدْخُلَ بِكِ ؟ " فَقَالَتْ : خَشِيتُ عَلَيْكَ قُرْبَ يَهُودَ)
Therefore, at first, Safiyyah denied sleeping with Muhammad. But later she got control of her anger in order to save herself from harm and agreed to sleep with Muhammad. And when Muhammad asked him why she had not slept with her previously, then she made an excuse that she feared the enemies. But we all know that enemies (i.e. the Jews) had already been defeated completely, and the Muslim army was going back, and Muhammad and his Army knew the strength of the enemies was ZERO, and they knew it much better than the young Safiyyah. Clearly, it was an excuse that Safiyyah had to make in order to save her from harm.
And now look at this tradition:
The History of al-Tabari, vol.8, page 122 (Link):
Safiyyah bint Huyayy was brought to Messenger of God, and another woman with her. Bilal, who was the one who brought them, led them past some of the slain Jews. When the woman who was with Safiyyah saw them, she cried out, struck her face, and poured dust on her head. When the Messgner of God saw her, he siad, "Take this she-devil away from me!" .. he messenger of God said to Bilal ... "Are you devoid of mercy Bilal, that you take two women past their slain men?"
Yes, this is the sorrow and trauma which women undergo at the slaughtering of their families. But still, Muhammad slept with Safiyyah the same night.
And Muhammad is strange, on one side he is telling Bilal to show mercy on the woman who just saw her slain relatives, but on the other hand, the same Muhammad uses bad words of she-devil for a woman who was showing normal trauma due to the slaughter of her relatives. Was it really an act of mercy by Muhammad to call her a devil for her trauma?
The History of al-Tabari, Volume XXXIX (39), p. 185:
Ibn ‘Umar [al-Waqidi] – Kathir b. Zayd – al-Walid b. Rabah – Abu Hurayrah: While the Prophet was lying with Safiyyah Abu Ayyub stayed the night at his door. When he saw the Prophet in the morning he said "God is the Greatest." He had a sword with him; he said to the Prophet, "O Messenger of God, this young woman had just been married, and you killed her father, her brother and her husband, so I did not trust her (not to harm) you." The Prophet laughed and said "Good".
Not only were some of the companions troubled, but one of Muhammad's wives was also disturbed by the fact that a woman would want to marry her family's murderer. Such a response is fully natural:
The History of al-Tabari, Volume VIII (8), p. 187:
According to al-Waqidi: In this year the Messenger of God married Mulaykah bt. Dawud al-Laythiyyah. One of the Prophet's wives came to Mulaykah and said to her, "Are you not ashamed to marry a man who killed your father?" She therefore "took refuge [in God]" from him. She was beautiful and young. The Messenger of God separated from her. He had killed her father the day of the conquest of Mecca.
Even Judaism/Christianity give 30 days to women to mourn the deaths of their relatives
The Sharia of Judaism/Christianity is also against humanity, as it also allows to take women prisoners and rape them by making them your wife even against their consent.
But Islamic Sharia is even many times worse than Judaism/Christianity. It does not give any time to the prisoner women to weep for their slain relatives, but Muslim Jihadists are allowed to immediately take sexual pleasures from them the same night, while during the day they had killed their loved ones.
While according to the Bible:
1. If a man wishes for any prisoner girl due to her beauty, then he has to make her a wife.
2. And then he has to give her a full 30 days to mourn her relatives.
3. And once she has become a wife, then she could not be sold further (But Islam permits to rape the prisoner girls, and then sell them in the market so that the next master could rape her, and then sell her to the 3rd master for rape).
Bible, Deuteronomy, Chap 21 (link):
|21:11||If among the prisoners you see a beautiful woman and it is your desire to make her your wife;|
|21:12||Then take her back to your house; and let her hair and her nails be cut;|
|21:13||And let her take off the dress in which she was made prisoner and go on living in your house and weeping for her father and mother for a full month: and after that you may go in to her and be her husband and she will be your wife.|
|21:14||But if you have no delight in her, you are to let her go wherever she will; you may not take a price for her as if she was your property, for you have made use of her for your pleasure.|
According to Islam, if these prisoners are virgins, or if they don't menstruate due to minor age, then Muslims are allowed to immediately rape them by penetrating them. And if they were already married, then Muslims could not penetrate till they become free from their blood once. But still during this time, Muslims are allowed to take every other kind of sexual pleasure (except for penetration).
Abdullah, the son of Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal writes in his book "Masail al-Imam Ahmad (link):
حدثنا علي بن عثمان قال حدثنا حماد عن علي بن زيد عن أيوب بن عبدالله اللخمي أن ابن عمر قال وقع في سهمي يوم جلولا جارية كأن عنقها إبريق فضة ، فقال ابن عمر : فما ملكت نفسي حتى وثبت إليها فجعلت أقبلها والناس ينظرون
Abdullah Ibn Umar (son of 2nd Caliph and a companion) says that after the war of Jalola, I got a slave-girl. Her neck was long and attractive and soft. Ibn Umar said, he was unable to control him, and he started kissing the slave girl on the spot, while people were looking at him.
And Imam al-Kuhlani said in his book "Sabl al-Islam" (link):
وأعلم أن الحديث دل بمفهومه على جواز الاستمتاع قبل الاستبراء
And know that his tradition is important as it provides proof of deriving sexual pleasures from a slave-girl even before she becomes pure from her menses.
And it is written in Kitab al-Mabsoot (link):
وذكر أبويوسف في الأمالي أن أباحنيفة كان يقول بالقياس ثم رجع إلى الاستحسان فقال ليس عليه أن يستبرئها وهو قول أبي يوسف ومحمد رحمهما الله
... Imam Abu Hanifa said that it was not obligatory for them to wait for her to become pure from her menses for driving the sexual pleasures (except for penetration). And Imam Abu Yusuf and Imam Muhammad also said the same.
The same is true for pregnant slave women. Driving of all types of sexual pleasures was allowed just after their capture, except for penetration.
Imam Ibn Hajr al-Asqallani wrote in his famous book Fath-ul-Bari (link):
وقال عطاء لا بأس أن يصيب من جاريته الحامل ما دون الفرج
Atta said there is no problem in driving sexual pleasures from a pregnant slave woman, except for her vagina.
And Imam Bukhari writes in his Sahih Bukhari (link):
ولم ير الحسن بأسا أن يقبلها أو يباشرها. وقال ابن عمر ـ رضى الله عنهما ـ إذا وهبت الوليدباب هل يسافر بالجارية قبل أن يستبرئها ولم ير الحسن بأسا أن يقبلها أو يباشرها وقال ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما إذا وهبت الوليدة التي توطأ أو بيعت أو عتقت فليستبرأ رحمها بحيضة ولا تستبرأ العذراء وقال عطاء لا بأس أن يصيب من جاريته الحامل ما دون الفرج وقال الله تعالى إلا على أزواجهم أو ما ملكت أيمانهم ة التي توطأ أو بيعت أو عتقت فليستبرأ رحمها بحيضة، ولا تستبرأ العذراء. وقال عطاء لا بأس أن يصيب من جاريته الحامل ما دون الفرج.
Chapter: If one buys a slave woman (who already has sex with the previous master), then could she be taken along in the journey?
Hassan Basri said that there is no problem in kissing such a slave woman. Ibn Umar said if a slave girl already had sex with the previous master, and then she is bought by someone else or one gets as a present, then waiting period is one menses. But there is no waiting period for a virgin slave girl. And 'Ata said if a slave woman is pregnant from the previous master, then still all sexual pleasures could be driven from her except for her vagina.
Raping the prisoner girls is itself an abuse of humanity. But not even letting them mourn the dead bodies of their fathers/brothers/husbands/sons makes it pure Satanic. For sure Satan could also not do anything worse than this act to humanity.
Muslim Excuse 1: If only beauty was the reason, why did then Muhammad marry her and not enjoyed her as a slave girl?
The reason seems to be the beauty of Safiyyah, from which Muhammad was overpowered.
We know that Muhammad already had multiple wives. They demanded a lot of time and place from him (as his house was adjacent to the mosque, and it was tiny and there was not enough place for enjoying with slave women freely without being criticized by his wives. Due to this reason, Muhammad was unable to freely have sex with his slave Mariyah. And once his wife Hafsa went to her father's house, then Muhammad used that chance to have sex with Mariyah in the room of Hafsa. But then Hafsa returned early, and she got Muhammad red-handed while doing sex with Mariyah in her room. This led to an extremely great scandal, where other wives also joined Hafsa in protesting against him. It went to the extent that Muhammad had to use the revelations in the name of Allah in order to threaten his wives. (Sunan Nisai, Hadith 3959)
Moreover, Safiyyah was a costly commodity for Muhammad, as he bought Safiyyah after giving away 7 slave women in exchange (Muhammad got those 7 slave women as war booty). Therefore, perhaps Muhammad didn't want such a costly commodity to become a slave and to stay dirty while doing work at home, but he wanted her to be free so that she remains beautiful.
And as a slave girl, Safiyyah then had to go outside the home without Hijab, with naked breasts, and then other Muslims would also have enjoyed her beauty (Note: Islam prohibits slave women to take Hijab, and even their breasts were also naked).
Perhaps Muhammad wanted to enjoy Safiyyah's beauty alone and didn't want his companions to share in it in case of Safiyyah went out half-naked as a slave woman. It was something the same when the wives of Muhammad were prohibited from marrying anyone else after Muhammad's death, while again Muhammad didn't want to share his wives with other Sahaba, even after his death.
This was the same pattern in which Muhammad also blackmailed the beautiful Juwariyyah to marry him in order to get her freedom.
Muslims claim that it was an old custom to marry the daughters of the defeated king so that the slaves of the defeated nation feel some relief. Yes, we do agree too that such custom existed, but it doesn't seem that Muhammad married Safiyyah/Juwariyyah for bringing any relief to the slaves, but his sole purpose seems to be keeping these 2 beauties to himself. That is why in the case of Juwariyyah, he married her after a long time had already passed. And in the case of Safiyyah too, beauty seems to be the main factor while earlier he gave away Safiyyah to another companion Dihyaya, and he became interested in Safiyyah only when other Sahaba described her beauty to Muhammad.
Muslim Excuse no. 2: Safiyyah dreamt of Muhammad even before the war
Muslims also come up with this tradition:
نَزَلَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ خَيْبَرَ وَصَفِيَّةُ عَرُوسٌ فِي مَجَاسِدِهَا، فَرَأَتْ فِي الْمَنَامِ كَأَنَّ الشَّمْسَ نَزَلَتْ حَتَّى وَقَعَتْ عَلَى صَدْرِهَا، فَقَصَّتْ ذَلِكَ عَلَى زَوْجِهَا، فَقَالَ: وَاللَّهِ مَا تَمَنَّيْنَ إِلا هَذَا الْمَلِكَ الَّذِي نَزَلَ بنا، فَفَتَحَهَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَضَرَبَ عُنق زوجها صبرا، وتعرض من هناك من فتية النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ليتزوجهاWhen Allah’s Messenger (pbuh) reached Khyber while Safiya was a bride at her place. She saw in her dream that a sun came into her lap. She mentioned it before her husband. He said; ‘By Allah you do not wish for anyone except the King who has come upon us.’ Allah’s Messenger conquered Khyber and her husband was killed. From that time (of dream) she loved that the Prophet (pbuh) may marry her. (Tabarani Kabeer, Hadith 19667)
It is clear that Muslims were totally free to make up such fantasy traditions on their own, in order to defend the honour of their prophet.
If a woman accepts the marriage proposal and sleeps willingly with the man the same night, who killed her father, brother and husband, then it means only one thing she is trying to save herself from the humiliation that she has to face as a slave woman.
Other traditions also prove that, despite any such dream, Safiyyah considered Muhammad the most hated person. And in fact, at first, she denied even sleeping with him.
Therefore, if Safiyah really had told this fantasy story, it is far more likely that she made it up in order to gain the favour of her captor rather than actually having a fantasy prophetic dream such as this.
