“We sent thee not, but as a Mercy for all creatures.” (Quran 21:107)
May Allah lighten the punishment of hellfire all those scholars who claim our beloved Prophet (saw) would approve of such following horrors as the killing of one’s wife and her pregnant baby…
Sunan Abu-Dawud Book 38, Number 4348
Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas:
“A blind man had a slave-mother who used to abuse the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and disparage him. He forbade her but she did not stop. He rebuked her but she did not give up her habit. One night she began to slander the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and abuse him. So he took a dagger, placed it on her belly, pressed it, and killed her. A child who came between her legs was smeared with the blood that was there. When the morning came, the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) was informed about it.
He assembled the people and said: I adjure by Allah the man who has done this action and I adjure him by my right to him that he should stand up. Jumping over the necks of the people and trembling the man stood up.
He sat before the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and said: Apostle of Allah! I am her master; she used to abuse you and disparage you. I forbade her, but she did not stop, and I rebuked her, but she did not abandon her habit. I have two sons like pearls from her, and she was my companion. Last night she began to abuse and disparage you. So I took a dagger, put it on her belly and pressed it till I killed her.
Thereupon the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Oh be witness, no retaliation is payable for her blood.”
Now with the recent beheading of the French teacher it has to be asked is this simply a Muslim extremist? Is this person from Al Qaeda or from ISIS? No, unfortunately it is a classical position held by classical scholars whom furnish lots of proofs that anyone who insults the Blessed Messenger (saw) is to be killed.
One of the most murderous text that you will find does not come form Al Qaeda or ISIS but from a book beloved by Sufi Muslims the world over. That book is “Al Shifa” by Qadi Iyad. Qadi Iyad is a mainstream Sunni Muslim of the Maliki school of jurisprudence. I wonder if Mufti Abu Layth considers Qadi Iyad a “Maliki Don”.

The following link does more damage to our faith than 1000 David Woods, Abdullah Sameers, Christian Princes, Sam Shamouns, or Abdullah Gondals combined….http://www.masud.co.uk/ISLAM/misc/alshifa/pt4ch1sec3.htm
Because even for me when I read ahadith that ascribe very atrocious acts to the Blessed Messenger (saw) I start to wonder about other narrations that off set this. I begin to wonder about the Jewish lady who threw rubbish on the Prophet (saw) home almost daily until she was sick and the Prophet (saw) inquired about her and so he went to visit her. However, the above link suggest IT WAS ALL A RUSE…
Read for yourself not from an islamic phobic web site, not from Spencer, or Hatun, or Shamoun or Gondal or Sameer or Wood but from Qadi Iyad.
The reasons why the Prophet pardoned some of those who harmed him It might be asked why the Prophet did not kill the Jew who said to him, “Death be upon you” when this is a curse, and why he did not kill the other man who said in this respect, “This is a dividing out by which the face of Allah is not intended.” When he annoyed the Prophet by saying that, the Prophet said, “Musa was harmed by worse than this,” and was patient. And why he did not kill the hypocrites who used to harm him often.
Know that at the beginning of Islam the Prophet used to court people’s friendship and he made their hearts incline to him. He made them love belief and adorned it in their hearts and he treated them gently to encourage them. He said to his Companions; “You are sent to make things easy. You were not sent to scare people away.” He said, “Make things easy and do not make them hard. Soothe and do not scare away.”
He said, “Let it not be said that Muhammad killed his Companions.” The Prophet cajoled the hypocrites and unbelievers, was cheerful in their company and lenient to them and endured their harm. He was patient when they were coarse. But it is not permitted for us to be patient with them in such cases. Allah says, “You will continue to come upon some act of treachery on their part, except for a few of them, so pardon them and overlook.” (5:15) Allah says, “Repel with that which is better and the one between whom and you there is enmity will be as if he were a close friend.” (41:35) That was because people at the beginning of Islam needed to be brought close. People are unanimous about that.
Once Islam was firmly established and Allah had given it victory over all other deens, any such detractor that the Muslims had power over and whose affair was well-known was put to death. A case in point is that of Ibn Khatal and others whom the Prophet said should be should killed on the Day of the Conquest and those among the Jews and others whom it was possible to kill by assassination. There were others who were captured but rectified their behaviour before they came into the Prophet’s company and joined the group of those who manifested belief in him. Among such people who had harmed him were Ka’b ibn al-Ashraf, Abu Rafi’, an-Nadr ibn al-Harith and ‘Uqba ibn Abi Mu’ayt.
Certainly this is down right frightening.
