The Sexual Perversions of Muhammad

*Unless otherwise noted, all quotes from the Hadith are from Dar-us-Salam Publishers, a publishing house founded in 1986 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. All numbers in parentheses are the Dar-us-Salam number. Behind the quotes from the Quran there will be a set of parenthesis that will indicate which translation was used for that quote. Some of the Hadith will contain one of 4 ratings: Sahih (sound), Hasan (good), Da'if (weak), and Maudu' (Fabricated). These ratings are supposed to indicate the authenticity of the Hadith, and the ratings used are the ratings that are published by Dar-us-Salam Publishers. In Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, which are considered the most authentic Hadith collections, there are no individual Hadith ratings. The reason for this is because all of the Hadiths in these two sets are Sahih, as the titles of these sets (Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim) demonstrate. Therefore, all of the Hadiths found in Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim are considered to be reliable and sound by Muslim scholars.*

 

Muhammad Was a Pervert and a Sex Addict:

Muhammad married a girl named Aisha that was only 6 or 7 years old: Sahih Al-Bukhari 58:234 (3894), 58:236 (3896), 62:64 (5133), 62:65 (5134), 62:88 (5158); Sahih Muslim 8:3309 (3479), 8:3310 (3480), 8:3311 (3481); Sunan Abu Dawud 2121 (Dar-us-Salam Reference).

 

"Narrated 'Aishah: My marriage (wedding) contract with the Prophet was written when I was a girl of six (years). We came to Al-Madina and we dismounted at the place of Bani Al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on, my hair grew (again) and my mother, Umm Raman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became normal, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, "Best wishes and Allah's Blessing and good luck." Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah's Messenger came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age." (Sahih Al-Bukhari 3894)

 

"Narrated Hisham's father: Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Al-Madina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he wrote the marriage (wedding) contract with 'Aishah when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old." (Sahih Al-Bukhari 3896)

 

"Narrated 'Aishah that the Prophet wrote the marriage contract with her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death)." (Sahih Al-Bukhari 5133)

 

"Narrated 'Aishah that the Prophet wrote the marriage contract with her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old.

"It was narrated that 'Aishah said: "The Messenger of Allah married me when I was six years old and he lived with me when I was nine years old."

        She said: "We came to Al-Madinah and I fell sick for a month and my hair came down to my neck. Umm Ruman came to me when I was on a swing and some of my friends were with me. She called me loudly and I went to her, and I did not know what she wanted of me. She took me by the hand and made me stand at the door. I said: 'Hah, Hah (as if gasping for breath)' until I had calmed down, then she took me into a house where there were some women of the Ansar who said: 'With good wishes, and blessings, and good fortune.' She handed me over to them and they washed my hair and adorned me, and then suddenly the Messenger of Allah was there, and they handed me over to him."" (Sahih Muslim 3479)

Muhammad had sex with Aisha when she was only 9 years old (and he was over 50 years old): Sahih Al-Bukhari 58:234 (3894), 58:236 (3896), 62:64 (5133), 62:65 (5134), 62:88 (5158); Sahih Muslim 8:3310 (3480), 8:3311 (3481); Sunan Abu Dawud 2121 (Dar-us-Salam Reference).

His description of Paradise is an eternal brothel for men to satisfy their sexual lusts. He said that in Paradise, men will have an eternal erection, will have 72 wives with desirable privates (Sunan Ibn Majah 4337 [Dar-us-Salam Reference]) with rounded breasts (Surah 78:33) and big pretty eyes (Surah 37:48), and that the wives will be in a 60 mile wide pavilion for the men to come have sex with them (Sahih Al-Bukhari 60:402 (4879)).

 

"It was narrated from Abu Umamah that the Messenger of Allah said: "There is no one whom Allah will admit to Paradise but Allah will marry him to seventy-two wives, two from houris and seventy from his inheritance from the people of Hell, all whom will have desirable front passages and he will have a male member that never becomes flaccid (i.e., soft and limp)."' (Da'if)

        Hisham bin Khalid said: "from his inheritance from the people of Hell" means: "Men who enter Hell, and the people of Paradise will inherit their wives, just as the wife of Pharaoh will be inherited."" (Sunan Ibn Majah 4337)

 

"Surely for the godfearing awaits a place of security, gardens and vineyards and maidens with swelling breasts, like of age, and a cup overflowing." (Surah 78:31-34. Translation by A. J. Arberry)

 

"Verily, for the Muttaqun, there will be a success (Paradise); Gardens and grapeyards; And young full-breasted (mature) maidens of equal age; And a full cup (of wine)." (Surah 78:31-34. Translation by Hilali & Khan)

 

"Lo! for the duteous is achievement - Gardens enclosed and vineyards, And voluptuous women of equal age; And a full cup." (Surah 78:31-34. Translation by Pickthall)

 

"In the Gardens of Bliss upon couches, set face to face, a cup from a spring being passed round to them, white, a delight to the drinkers, wherein no sickness is, neither intoxication; and with them wide-eyed maidens restraining their glances as if they were hidden pearls." (Surah 37:43-49. Translation by A. J. Arberry)

 

"In the Gardens of delight, On couches facing one another; A cup from a gushing spring is brought round for them, White, delicious to the drinkers, Wherein there is no headache nor are they made mad thereby. And with them are those of modest gaze, with lovely eyes, (Pure) as they were hidden eggs (of the ostrich)." (Surah 37:43-49. Translation by Pickthall)

 

"Narrated 'Abdullah bin Qais: Allah's Messenger said, "In Paradise there is a pavilion made of a single hollow pearl, sixty miles wide, in each corner of which there are wives who will not see those in the other corners; and the believers will visit and enjoy them."" (Sahih Al-Bukhari 4879)

 

 

 

 

It was said that Muhammad had the sexual strength of 30 men, which enabled him to visit all 9 of his wives in one night: Sahih Al-Bukhari 5:268 (268).

 

"Narrated Qatada: Anas bin Malik said, "The Prophet used to visit all his wives in a round, during the day and night and they were eleven in number." I asked Anas, "Had the Prophet the strength for it?" Anas replied, "We used to say that the Prophet was given the strength of thirty (men)." And Sa'id said on the authority of Qatada that Anas had told him about nine wives only (not eleven)." (Sahih Al-Bukhari 268)

 

 

 

 

He had sex with a female slave, which resulted in his wives Aisha and Hafsah pressuring him to stop. However, Muhammad had a "revelation" saying he could have sex with the female slave: Surah 66:1; Sunan An-Nasa'i 3411 (Dar-us-Salam Reference); Tafsir Al-Jalalayn on Surah 66:1.

 

"O Prophet, why forbiddest thou what God has made lawful to thee, seeking the good pleasure of thy wives? And God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate." (Surah 66:1. Translation by A. J. Arberry)

 

"O Prophet! Why bannest thou that which Allah hath made lawful for thee, seeking to please thy wives? And Allah is Forgiving, Merciful." (Surah 66:1. Translation by Pickthall)

 

"It was narrated from Anas, that the Messenger of Allah had a female slave with whom he had intercourse, but 'Aishah and Hafsah would not leave him alone until he said that she was forbidden for him. Then Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, revealed: "0 Prophet! Why do you forbid (for yourself) that which Allah has allowed to you until the end of the Verse." (Sahih) (Sunan an-Nasa'i 3411)

 

"O Prophet! Why do you prohibit what God has made lawful for you, in terms of your Coptic handmaiden Māriya - when he lay with her in the house of Hafsa, who had been away, but who upon returning [and finding out] became upset by the fact that this had taken place in her own house and on her own bed - by saying, ‘She is unlawful for me!’, seeking, by making her unlawful [for you], to please your wives? And God is Forgiving, Merciful, having forgiven you this prohibition." (Tafsir Al-Jalalayn on Surah 66:1)

 

 

 

He let a child suck on his tongue, and he also sucked on a child's tongue and/or lips: Al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari 48:1183 (In-Book Reference); Musnad Ahmad 16245 (I believe this is Dar-us-Salam Reference).

"It is related that Abu Hurayra said, "I never sae al-Hasan without my eyes overflowing with tears. That is because the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, went out one day and I found him in the mosque. He took my hand and I went along with him. He did not speak to me until we reached the market of Banu Qaynuqa'. He walked around it and looked. Then he left and I left with him until we reached the mosque. He sat down and wrapped himself in his garment. Then he said, 'Where is the little one? Call the little one to me.' Hasan came running and jumped into his lap. Then he put his hand in his beard. Then the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, opened his mouth and put his tongue in his mouth. Then he said, O Allah, I love him, so love him and the one who loves him!'"" (Al-Adab al-Mufrad al-Bukhari Hadith 1183. English Translation)

 

"[Mua’wiya said]: I saw the prophet sucking on the tongue or the lips of Al-Hassan son of Ali, may the prayers of Allah be upon him. For no tongue or lips that the prophet sucked on will be tormented (by hell fire)." (Musnad Ahmad 16245. I'm not sure which numbering system or translation this is. Maybe it's an in-book reference)

 

 

 

 

He would go to prayer with water spots visible on his clothes from where his child bride, Aisha, would clean off his semen stains: Sahih Al-Bukhari 4:229 (229), 231 (230), 232 (231), 233 (232).

 

"Narrated 'Aishah: I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet it and he used to go for Salat (prayers) while traces of water were still on it (water spots were still visible)." (Sahih Al-Bukhari 229)

 

"Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar: I asked 'Aishah about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, "I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah's Messenger and he would go for the Salat (prayer) while water spots were still visible."" (Sahih Al-Bukhari 230)

 

"Narrated 'Amr bin Maimun: I heard Sulaiman bin Yasar talking about the clothes soiled with semen. He said: 'Aishah said, "I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah's Messenger and he would go for the Salat (prayers) while water spots were still visible on them."" (Sahih Al-Bukhari 231)

 

"Narrated 'Aishah: I used to wash the semen off the clothes of the Prophet and even then I used to notice one or more spots on them." (Sahih Al-Bukhari 232)

 

 

 

 

He owned sex slaves: Surah 33:50.

 

"O Prophet, We have made lawful for thee thy wives whom thou hast given their wages and what thy right hand owns, spoils of war that God has given thee, and the daughters of thy uncles paternal and aunts paternal, thy uncles maternal and aunts maternal, who have emigrated with thee, and any woman believer, if she give herself to the Prophet and if the Prophet desire to take her in marriage, for thee exclusively, apart from the believers -- We know what We have imposed upon them touching their wives and what their right hands own -- that there may be no fault in thee; God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate." (Surah 33:50. Translation by A. J. Arberry)

 

"O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war, and the daughters of thine uncle on the father's side and the daughters of thine aunts on the father's side, and the daughters of thine uncle on the mother's side and the daughters of thine aunts on the mother's side who emigrated with thee, and a believing woman if she give herself unto the Prophet and the Prophet desire to ask her in marriage - a privilege for thee only, not for the (rest of) believers - We are Aware of that which We enjoined upon them concerning their wives and those whom their right hands possess - that thou mayst be free from blame, for Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful." (Surah 33:50. Translation by Pickthall)

 

 

 

 

He impregnated one of his slave girls: Ibn Ishaq's Sirat Rasul Allah, page 653.

 

"Then the apostle divided his companions and sent Salit b. 'Amr b. 'Abdu Shams b. 'Abdu Wudd, brother of B. 'Amir b. Lu'ayy, to Haudha b. 'AIi ruler of al-Yamama; al-'Ala' b. al-Hadrami to al-Mundhir b. Sawa, brother of B. 'Abdu'l-Qays, ruler of al-Bahrayn; 'Amr b. al-'As to Jayfar b. Julanda and 'Abbad his brother the Asdis, rulers of 'Uman; Hatib b. Abu Balta'a to the Muqauqis ruler of Alexandria. He handed over to him the apostle's letter and the Muqauqis gave to the apostle four slave girls, one of whom was Mary mother of Ibrahim the apostle's son." (Ibn Ishaq's Sirat Rasul Allah, page 653)

 

 

 

 

In order to remove the temptation of sex between an unmarried couple, Muhammad told a woman (named Sahla bint Suhail) to put her breasts into the man's mouth (named Salim) and breastfeed him, which would then, according to Muhammad, technically make the man the foster child of the woman: Sahih Muslim 8:3424 (3600), 3425 (3601), 3426 (3602), 3427 (3603), 3428 (3604).

 

"It was narrated that 'Aishah said: "Sahlah bint Suhail came to the Prophet and said: 'O Messenger of Allah, I see (signs of displeasure) on the face of Abu Hudhaifah when Salim - who was his ally - comes in. The Prophet said: 'Breastfeed him.' She said: 'How can I breastfeed him? He is a grown man.' The Messenger of Allah smiled and said: 'I know that he is a grown man.'"

    'Amr added in his HadIth: "He was one of those who had been present at Badr." In the report of Ibn Abi 'Umar: "The Messenger of Allah laughed."" (Sahih Muslim 3600)

 

"It was narrated from 'Aishah that Salim, the freed slave of Abu Hudhaifah, was with Abu Hudhaifah and his family in their house. She - meaning the daughter of Suhail (ans wife od Abu Hudhaifah)- came to the Prophet and said: "Salim has attained what men attain (puberty) and he understands what they understand. He enters upon us and I think that Abu Hudhaifah feels some (discomfort) in his heart because of that." The Prophet said to her: "Breastfeed him and he will be unlawful for you, and what Abu Hudhaifah feels in his heart will disappear." She came back to him and said: "I breastfed him, and what Abu Hudhaifah felt in his heart has disappeared."" (Sahih Muslim 3601)

 

"It was narrated from 'Aishah that Sahlah bint Suhail bin 'Amr came to the Prophet and said: "O Messenger of Allah, Salim - meaning Salim, the freed slave of Abu Hudhaifah - is with us in our house, and he has attained what men attain and knows what men know." He said: "Breastfeed him and he will be unlawful for you." He (Ibn Abi Mulaikah, a narrator) said: "For a year or so I did not narrate this out of fear, then I met Al-Qasim and said to him: 'You told me a Hadith that I have not narrated yet.' He said: 'What is it?' And I told him. He said: 'Narrate from me that 'Aishah told me that.'"" (Sahih Muslim 3602)

 

"It was narrated that Zainab hint Umm Salamah said: Umm Salamah said to Aishah: 'There enters upon you a slave boy who is close to puberty, and I would not like him to enter upon me. 'Aihah said: Do you not have a good example in the Messenger of Allah She said: The wife of Abu Hudhaifah said: "O Messenger of Allah, Salim enters upon me and he is a man, and there is some (discomfort) in the heart of Abu Hudhaifah about that." The Messenger of Allah A said: "Breastfeed him so that he may enter upon you."" (Sahih Muslim 3603)

 

"Zainab bint Abi Salamah said: I heard Umm Salamah, the wife of the Prophet say to 'Aishah: By Allah, I do not like a boy who has passed the age of breastfeeding to see me. She said: Why? Sahlah hint Sa'd came to the Messenger of Allah and said: "O Messenger of Allah, by Allah, I see some (discomfort) in the face of Abu Hudhaifah when Salim comes in." The Messenger of Allah said: "Breastfeed him." She said: "He has a beard." He said: "Breastfeed him, and that which is in the face of Abu Hudhaifah will disappear." She said: "By Allah, I did not see it in the face of Abu Hudhaifah (after that)."" (Sahih Muslim 3604)

 

 

 

 

He gave his men a loophole to engage in prostitution & adultery by allowing them to have "temporary marriages" (called "nikah mut'ah") so they could satisfy their sexual desires when they were away from their wives: Surah 4:24, 5:87 (the context for Surah 5:87 is found in Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim); Sahih Al-Bukhari 60:139 (4615), 62:13 (5075); Sahih Muslim 8:3243 (3410).

 

"Forbidden to you are your mothers and daughters, your sisters, your aunts paternal and maternal, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, your mothers who have given suck to you, your suckling sisters, your wives' mothers, your stepdaughters who are in your care being born of your wives you have been in to -- but if you have not yet been in to them it is no fault in you - and the spouses of your sons who are of your loins, and that you should take to you two sisters together, unless it be a thing of the past; God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate; and wedded women, save what your right hands own. So God prescribes for you. Lawful for you, beyond all that, is that you may seek, using your wealth, in wedlock and not in licence. Such wives as you enjoy thereby, give them their wages apportionate; it is no fault in you in your agreeing together, after the due apportionate. God is All-knowing, All-wise." (Surah 4:23-24. Translation by A. J. Arberry)

 

"Forbidden unto you are your mothers, and your daughters, and your sisters, and your father's sisters, and your mother's sisters, and your brother's daughters and your sister's daughters, and your foster-mothers, and your foster-sisters, and your mothers-in-law, and your step-daughters who are under your protection (born) of your women unto whom ye have gone in - but if ye have not gone in unto them, then it is no sin for you (to marry their daughters) - and the wives of your sons who (spring) from your own loins. And (it is forbidden unto you) that ye should have two sisters together, except what hath already happened (of that nature) in the past. Lo! Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful. And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you. Lawful unto you are all beyond those mentioned, so that ye seek them with your wealth in honest wedlock, not debauchery. And those of whom ye seek content (by marrying them), give unto them their portions as a duty. And there is no sin for you in what ye do by mutual agreement after the duty (hath been done). Lo! Allah is ever Knower, Wise." (Surah 4:23-24. Translation by Pickthall)

 

"O believers, forbid not such good things as God has permitted you; and transgress not; God loves not transgressors." (Surah 5:87. Translation by A. J. Arberry)

 

"O ye who believe! Forbid not the good things which Allah hath made lawful for you, and transgress not, Lo! Allah loveth not transgressors." (Surah 5:87. Translation by Pickthall)

 

"Narrated 'Abdullah: We used to participate in the holy fighting carried on by the Prophet and we had no women (wives) with us. So we said (to the Prophet), "Shall we castrate ourselves?" But the Prophet forbade us to do that and thenceforth he allowed us to marry a woman (temporarily) by giving her even a garment (as Mahr), and then he recited:

    "'O you who believe! Make not unlawful the Tayyibat (all that is good as regards foods, things, deeds, beliefs, persons) which Allah has made lawful for you...'"" (Sahih Al-Bukhari 4615)

 

"Narrated 'Abdullah: We used to participate in the holy battles led by Allah's Messenger and we had nothing (no wives) with us. So we said, "Shall we get ourselves castrated?" He forbade us that and then allowed us to marry a woman temporarily by giving her even a garment and then he recited to us:

    'O you who believe! Make not unlawful the Tayyibat (all that is good as regards foods, things, deeds, beliefs, persons etc.) which Allah has made lawful to you.'" (Sahih Al- Bukhari 5075)

 

"'Abdullah said: "We were on a campaign with the Messenger of Allah, and we had no women with us. We said: 'Why don't we get ourselves castrated?' But he forbade us to do that, then he granted us a concession allowing us to marry women in return for a garment, for a set period of time." Then 'Abdullah recited the verse: "O you who believe! Make not unlawful the Tayyibat (all that is good as regards foods, things, deeds, beliefs, persons) which Allah has made lawful to you, and transgress not. Verily, Allah does not like the transgressors."" (Sahih Muslim 3410)

 

 

 

 

He married his adopted son's divorced wife (named Zaynab), who was also his cousin: Surah 33:37; al-Tabari, Volume VIII, pages 2-4.

 

"When thou saidst to him whom God had blessed and thou hadst favoured, 'Keep thy wife to thyself, and fear God,' and thou wast concealing within thyself what God should reveal, fearing other men; and God has better right for thee to fear Him. So when Zaid had accomplished what he would of her, then We gave her in marriage to thee, so that there should not be any fault in the believers, touching the wives of their adopted sons, when they have accomplished what they would of them; and God's commandment must be performed." (Surah 33:37. Translation by A. J. Arberry)

 

"And when thou saidst unto him on whom Allah hath conferred favour and thou hast conferred favour: Keep thy wife to thyself, and fear Allah. And thou didst hide in thy mind that which Allah was to bring to light, and thou didst fear mankind whereas Allah hath a better right that thou shouldst fear Him. So when Zeyd had performed that necessary formality (of divorce) from her, We gave her unto thee in marriage, so that (henceforth) there may be no sin for believers in respect of wives of their adopted sons, when the latter have performed the necessary formality (of release) from them. The commandment of Allah must be fulfilled." (Surah 33:36. Translation by Pickthall)

 

"The Messenger of God came to the house of Zayd b. Harithah. (Zayd was always called Zayd b. Muhammad.) Perhaps the Messenger of God missed him at that moment, so as to ask, "Where is Zayd?" He came to his residence to look for him but did not find him. Zaynab bt. Jahsh, Zayd's wife, rose to meet him. Because she was dressed only in a shift, the Messenger of God turned away from her. She said: "He is not here, Messenger of God. Come in, you who are as dear to me as my father and mother!" The Messenger of God refused to enter. Zaynab had dressed in haste when she was told "the Messenger of God is at the door." She jumped up in haste and excited the admiration of the Messenger of God, so that he turned away murmuring something that could scarcely be understood. However, he did say overtly: "Glory be to God the Almighty! Glory be to God, who causes hearts to turn!"

        When Zayd came home, his wife told him that the Messenger of God had come to his house. Zayd said, "Why didn't you ask him to come in?" She replied, "I asked him, but he refused." "Did you hear him say anything?" he asked. She replied, "As he turned away, I heard him say: 'Glory be to God the Almighty! Glory be to God, who causes hearts to turn!"'

        So Zayd left, and, having come to the Messenger of God, he said: "Messenger of God, I have heard that you came to my house. Why didn't you go in, you who are as dear to me as my father and mother? Messenger of God, perhaps Zaynab has excited your ad- miration, and so I will separate myself from her." The Messenger of God said, "Keep your wife to yourself." Zayd could find no possible way to [approach] her after that day. He would come to the Messenger of God and tell him so, but the Messenger of God would say to him, "Keep your wife." Zayd separated from her and left her, and she became free.

        While the Messenger of God was talking with 'A'ishah, a faintings overcame him. When he was released from it, he smiled and said, "Who will go to Zaynab to tell her the good news, saying that God has married her to me?" Then the Messenger of God recited:

"And when you said unto him on whom God has conferred favor and you have conferred favor, 'Keep your wife to yourself ...'" - and the entire passage.

        According to 'A'ishah, who said: "I became very uneasy because of what we heard about her beauty and another thing, the greatest and loftiest of matters - what God had done for her by giving her in marriage. I said that she would boast of it over us."

        According to 'A'ishah, who said: "Salma, the maidservant of the Messenger of God, went out to inform Zaynab of this, and [Zaynab] gave [Salma] some anklets that she was wearing."

        According to Yunus b. 'Abd al-A'la-Ibn Wahb-Ibn Zayd, who said: The Messenger of God had married Zayd b. Harithah to Zaynab bt. Jahsh, his paternal aunt's daughter. One day the Messenger of God went out looking for Zayd. Now there was a covering of haircloth over the doorway, but the wind had lifted the covering so that the doorway was uncovered. Zaynab was in her chamber, undressed, and admiration for her entered the heart of the Prophet. After that happened, she was made unattractive to the other man. So he came and said, "Messenger of God, I want to separate myself from my companion." Muhammad asked: "What is wrong ? Has anything on her part disquieted you?" "No, by God," replied Zayd, "nothing she has done has disquieted me, Messenger of God, nor have I seen anything but good." The Messenger of God said to him, "Keep your wife to yourself, and fear God." That is [the meaning of] the Word of God: "And when you said unto him on whom God has conferred favor and you have conferred favor, 'Keep your wife to yourself, and fear God.' And you did hide in your mind that which God was to bring to light." You did hide in your mind [the thought] that "if he separates himself from her, I will marry her."" (al-Tabari, Volume VIII, pages 2-4)

"It was narrated that Anas said: "The captives were gathered, meaning at Khaibar, and Dihyah came, and said: 'O Messenger of Allah, give me a slave woman from among the captives.' He said: 'Go and take a slave woman." He took Safiyyah the daughter of Huyayy.

When the Prophet saw her, he said to him: 'Take another slave woman from among the captives.' And the Prophet freed her, and married her."" (Sahih) (Sunan Abu Dawud 2998)
