Lying to win in battle and deceive your wife

I have always wondered why so many Muslims I know they distort and falsify facts to prove their views, often this is due to early conditioning and ignorance of history but on occasion it is on purpose and in Islam permitted lying is called taqiyya and is permissable to cheat on your wife and trick the unbelievers

"Lying is wrong, *except in three things: the lie of a man to his wife to make her content with him; a lie to an enemy, for war is deception; or a lie to settle trouble between people" (Ahmad, 6.459. H).

Ishaq:365 Tabari VII:94
"Muhammad bin Maslamah said,'O Messenger, we shall have to tell lies.''Say what you like,' Muhammad replied.'You are absolved, free to say whatever you must.'"

Bukhari:V4B52N270 "Allah's Messenger said, 'Who is ready to kill Ashraf? He has said injurious things about Allah and His Apostle.' Maslama got up saying, 'Would you like me to kill him?' The Prophet proclaimed, 'Yes.' Maslama said, 'Then allow me to lie so that I will be able to deceive him.' Muhammad said, 'You may do so.'"

We stayed for a short while (after we had covered a little distance), and then I said to my companions, "Allah's Apostle has forgotten his oath. By Allah, if we do not remind Allah's Apostle of his oath, we will never be successful." So we returned to the Prophet and said, "O Allah's Apostle! We asked you for mounts, but you took an oath that you would not give us any mounts; we think that you have forgotten your oath.' He said, 'It is Allah Who has given you mounts. By Allah, and Allah willing, if I take an oath and later find something else better than that. then I do what is better and expiate my oath.' Bukhari:7.427

Breaking of treaties sanctioned in quran

And an announcement from Allah and His Messenger, to the people (assembled) on the day of the Great Pilgrimage,- that Allah and His Messenger dissolve (treaty) obligations with the Pagans. If then, ye repent, it were best for you; but if ye turn away, know ye that ye cannot frustrate Allah. And proclaim a grievous penalty to those who reject Faith. [Q9.003]

This point is proven by many incidences in the life of Mohammed. He often lied and instructed his followers to do the same. He rationalized that the prospect of success in missions to extend Islam's influence overrode Allah's initial prohibitions against lying.

It was alleged that Kaab had recited amorous poetry to Muslim women. Mohammed asked for volunteers to rid him of Kaab Ibn al-Ashraf. As Mohammed put it, Kaab had "Harmed Allah and His Apostle." At that time Kaab Ibn al-Ashraf, and his tribe were strong, so it was not easy for a stranger to infiltrate and execute the task. A Muslim man by the name of Ibn Muslima, volunteered for the murderous project on the condition that Mohammed would allow him to lie. With Mohammed's consent, Ibn Muslima, went to Kaab and told him fabricated stories that reflected discontent about Mohammed's leadership. When he had gained Kaab's trust he lured him away from his house one night and murdered him in a remote area under the cover of darkness. The story is told in the bukhari and can be read below:

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 270: Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah: The Prophet said, "Who is ready to kill Ka'b bin Al-Ashraf who has really hurt Allah and His Apostle?" Muhammad bin Maslama said, "O Allah's Apostle! Do you like me to kill him?" He replied in the affirmative. So, Muhammad bin Maslama went to him (i.e. Ka'b) and said, "This person (i.e. the Prophet) has put us to task and asked us for charity." Ka'b replied, "By Allah, you will get tired of him." Muhammad said to him, "We have followed him, so we dislike to leave him till we see the end of his affair." Muhammad bin Maslama went on talking to him in this way till he got the chance to kill him.

Ishaq:368 "We carried his head back to Muhammad during the night, saluted the Prophet as he stood praying, and cast Ashraf's head before his feet. The Prophet praised Allah that the poet had been slain, and complimented us on the good work we had done in Allah's Cause. Our attack upon Allah's enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for his life.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 268:
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle called,: "War is deceit".

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 195: Narrated Anas: The Prophet set out for Khaibar and reached it at night. He used not to attack if he reached the people at night, till the day broke. So, when the day dawned, the Jews came out with their bags and spades. When they saw the Prophet; they said, "Muhammad and his army!" The Prophet said, Allahu--Akbar! (Allah is Greater) and Khaibar is ruined, for whenever we approach a nation (i.e. enemy to fight) then it will be a miserable morning for those who have been warned

Bukhari vol 3,Book 46, No. 717
Prophet had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 265:
Narrated Al-Bara bin Azib: Allah's Apostle sent a group of the Ansar to Abu Rafi. Abdullah bin Atik entered his house at night and killed him while he was sleeping.

Don't worry about women and children as long as you kill them by treachery and deception

! Bukhari:V4 B52 N256 "The Prophet passed by and was asked whether it was permissible to attack infidels at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied,‘Their women and children are from them.’"

How many a township have We destroyed! As a raid by night, or while they slept at noon, Our terror came unto them.Qur'an 7:4

Do not warn the unbelievers before you kill them, deceive them

Shai Muslim Book 019, Number 4292: Ibn 'Aun reported: I wrote to Nafi' inquiring from him whether it was necessary to extend (to the disbelievers) an invitation to accept (Islam) before m". ing them in fight. He wrote (in reply) to me that it was necessary in the early days of Islam. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) made a raid upon Banu Mustaliq while they were unaware and their cattle were having a drink at the water. He killed those who fought and imprisoned others. On that very day, he captured Juwairiya bint al-Harith. Nafi' said that this tradition was related to him by Abdullah b. Umar who (himself) was among the raiding troops.

Mahommed punsihed those who broke an oath with him by cutting their hands and letting them bleed to death whilst enslaving their women and children yet he ordered his followers to break theirs, see link to 'wars of Mahommed.

[2:225] GOD does not hold you responsible for the mere utterance of oaths; He holds you responsible for your innermost intentions. GOD is Forgiver,

Mahommed sternely punished anyone who broke an oath with him however it is permissable for Muslims to break their oaths. This is what Mohammed did to a tribe that broke an oath with him:

Volume 8, Book 82, Number 795; Narrated Anas: The Prophet cut off the hands and feet of the men belonging to the tribe of Uraina and did not cauterise (their bleeding limbs) till they died.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 271: Narrated Jabir: The Prophet said, "Who is ready to kill Ka'b bin Ashraf (i.e. a Jew)." Muhammad bin Maslama replied, "Do you like me to kill him?" The Prophet replied in the affirmative. Muhammad bin Maslama said, "Then allow me to say what I like." The Prophet replied, "I do (i.e. allow you)."

Volume 5, Book 59, Number 370: Narrated Al-Bara bin Azib:
Allah's Apostle sent a group of persons to Abu Rafi. Abdullah bin Atik entered his house at night, while he was sleeping, and killed him

Allah the great deceiver in the quran!

4:119 "I will mislead them, and I will create in them false desires; I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and to deface the (fair) nature created by Allah." Whoever, forsaking Allah, takes Satan for a friend, hath of a surety suffered a loss that is manifest.

Here allah says that he is the deceiver who will create false desires and order people to cut the ears of cattle....

then the next verse says:

[120] Satan makes them promises, and creates in them false desires; but Satan's promises are nothing but deception.

so in this verse it is satan and not allah that creates false desires in them! So allah and satan are working together to create false desires in people. Conclusion: allah is satan creating false desires in people.

More about allah deceiving and scheming in quran ( All these translations are taken from muslim websites)

[8:30] The disbelievers plot and scheme to neutralize you, or kill you, or banish you. However, they plot and scheme, but so does GOD. GOD is the best schemer

3:54] They plotted and schemed, but so did GOD, and GOD is the best schemer

10: 21 And when We cause mankind to taste of mercy after some adversity which had afflicted them, behold! they have some plot against Our revelations. Say: Allah is more swift in plotting. Lo! Our messengers write down that which ye plot.

7:99 Can they, then, ever feel secure from God's deep devising? But none feels secure from God's deep devising save people who are [already] lost.

Read how muslims are instructed to deceive 'the infidel'

You cannot marry a foster niece but I can cause Allah ordered it.

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

It was said to the Prophet, "Won't you marry the daughter of Hamza?" He said, "She is my foster niece (brother's daughter). "

But Abu's pretty daughter 6 year old Ayesha was also his foster niece by the same token. But Mo really wanted her.

Muslim Book 62, Number 18:Narrated 'Ursa:The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for 'Aisha's hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said "But I am your brother." The Prophet said, "You are my brother in Allah's religion and His Book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry."

Narrated 'Aisha: That the Prophet said to her, "You have been shown to me twice in my dream. I saw you pictured on a piece of silk and some-one said (to me). 'This is your wife.' When I uncovered the picture, I saw that it was yours. I said, 'If this is from Allah, it will be done." (Sahih al-Bukhari: volume 5, book 58, number 235, Khan)

Muslims are embarassed by this marriage and try to deny it, yet countless verses and stories from their holy books confirm it again and again, see here

Allah always looks after Muhammad by revealing a quran verse when it suited the prophet best particularly when he was lusting after a woman

Story 1 - Muhammad according to allah can pick any woman he chooses

Volume 7, Book 62, Number 48: Narrated Hisham's father:
Khaula bint Hakim was one of those ladies who presented themselves to the Prophet for marriage. 'Aisha said, "Doesn't a lady feel ashamed for presenting herself to a man?" But when the Verse: "(O Muhammad) You may postpone (the turn of) any of them (your wives) that you please,' (33.51) was revealed, " 'Aisha said, 'O Allah's Apostle! I do not see, but, that your Lord hurries in pleasing you.'

Story 2 - The harrassed wives of muhammad made a united fron against him so Allah intervened to castigate them

Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 395 Narrated 'Umar (bin Al-Khattab): Once the wives of the Prophet made a united front against the Prophet and I said to them,'It may be if he (the Prophet) divorced you,(all) that his Lord (Allah) will give him instead of you wives better than you.' So this verse (the same as I had said) was revealed." (66.5).

Story 3 - Allah in the Quoran rebuked him for feeling remorseful after raping a slave ( well if God says that I should, then I must please him ): Once he entered his wife Hafsa’s room for some reason. Hafsa was not there but he found her lovely young maid Maria instead. He grabbed her and jumped into the bed with her for a quickie. But the quickie was not quick enough and Hafsa walked in and started yelling. To quieten her down and to please her he promised never to touch her maid again. However Allah did not approve of this sacrifice and revealed the following ayas:

Q66.1 SHAKIR: O Prophet! why do you forbid (yourself) that which Allah has made lawful for you (slave girl Maria); you seek to please your wife(Hafsa)

Story 4 - Muhammad lusted for the wife of his adopted son. At the end his son divorced her and Muhammad took her for himself To justify this act he again 'revealed another verse!!

And when Zayd divorced his wife, We gave her to you in marriage, so that it should become legitimate for true believers to wed the wives of their adopted sons if they divorced them. God’s will must needs be done. No blame shall be attached to the Prophet for doing what is SANCTIONED TO HIM BY GOD quran 33:37,38

Story 5 - When Muhammad wants to keep the loot for him he reveals a verse!

Greed of muhammad

Shai Muslim Book 019, Number 4328: A hadith has been narrated by Mus'ab b. Sa'd who heard it from his father as saying: My father took a sword from Khums and brought it to the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) and said: Grant it to me. He refused. At this Allah revealed (the Qur'anic verse):" They ask thee concerning the spoils of war. Say: The spoils of war are for Allah and the Apostle" (quran 8:1).

Story 6 - When muhammad forgets a verse and recites another that contradicts the prvious onea verse he makes up a 'revelation to justify the error!

In Asbab al-Nuzul, p. 19, Suyuti says that, "Ibn ’Abbas himself said, ‘Sometimes the revelation used to descend on the prophet during the night and then he forgot it during daytime, thus God sent down this verse: 2:106." [quran 2: 106] None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou not that Allah Hath power over all things?" quran 16:101"When We substitute one revelation for another, and Allah knows best what He reveals (in stages), they say, "Thou art but a forger": but most of them understand not."

One rule for me and one for you

If muhammad allowed up to 4 wives why did he have 11? Special rules? like him taking 20% of the all the booty and slaves? like him saying do not marry a foster daughter but then marrying his foster daughter aisha? like him allowing widows to remarry but not his 11 wives some of whom were still reaaly young? like him saying you can have 4 wives but he forbade his son in law to marry another wife besides his daughter?

Mahommed never had a direct experience of God - Volume 4, Book 54, Number 457: Narrated Aisha:
Whoever claimed that (the Prophet) Muhammad saw his Lord, is committing a great fault, for he only saw Gabriel in his genuine shape in which he was created covering the whole horizon

The most shocking example of hypocrisy in Islam comes from their prophet and the Quran which was changed 3 times to accomodate Muammad's interests and wars of conquest:

It is historically clear that the Quran went through 3 major phases and they all seem to accomodate the interests of the prophet at the time. At first he included moon gods and pagan deities in his verses. Then when the pagans refused to join him he declared that those verses had been revealed by Satan! Hence the satanic verses. So Mohammad at his owm admission had been deceived by Satan. So who is to say that subsequent verses were not equally coming from Satan since it was so easy to decive him.

Muhammad seems to have tried to make some peace with these clans in the first decade. It was this attempt to make peace that the incident of the Satanic verses took place. Seeking some accomodation, Muhammad seems to have sought to reconcile his new religion with the traditional religion of Mecca by incorporating other gods the three gods of Meccan relgion: al-Lat, al-Uzza, and Manat. It would later be revealed to Muhammad that these Quranic verses had been sent to him by Satan and were thus deceptions.

He then he went to create the Mecca verses where he was friendly to Jews and Christians, hence those verses that promote conciliation with Jews and Christians. Then lo and behold when they refused to join his new religion he declared that those verses had been abrogated by Allah ( how convenient! ) and he declared the Medina verses where he often cursed Jews and Christians and declared war on the infidels.
