BANI QURAIZA: BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE MASSACRE IN ISLAM’S OWN WRITINGS
Source: Killing Mohammed , Jake Neuman
ANGEL GABRIEL APPEARS TO MUHAMMAD INSTRUCTING HIM TO ATTACK THE JEWS OF BANI QURAYZA
As per sole Sira(life record) – “when the Prophet returned from the battle of Al-Khandaq (i.e. Trench) and laid down his arms and took a bath, Gabriel came to the apostle wearing an embroidered turban and riding on a mule with a saddle covered with a piece of brocade and asked, “ You have laid down your arms? By Allah, we angels have not laid them down yet and I have just come from pursuing the enemy. “God commands you, Muhammad, to go to Banu Qurayza. I am about to go to them to shake their stronghold (to terrorize Jews).
So set out for them.” The Prophet said, “Where to go?” Gabriel said, “Towards this side,” pointing towards Banu Quraiza. So the Prophet went out towards them.”
These traditions about Gabriel’s leadership are designed to give divine support for the atrocity that is about to be unleashed. Today, we may see this as fanciful, but to millions of Muslims this is real.
Muhammad Besieges Bani Quraiza For 25 Days. After The
Jews Unconditionally Surrender All Men Are Beheaded,
Women And Young Girls Raped And Sold Into Slavery. Their Property Is Looted.
“So Allah’s Apostle went to them (i.e. Banu Quraiza) (i.e. besieged them). They then surrendered to the Prophet’s judgment (unconditionally after 25 days of fierce resistance) but he directed them to Saad (ally) to give his verdict concerning them. Saad said, “I give my judgment that their warriors should be killed, their women and children should be taken as captives, and their properties distributed.”
The Prophet said, “You have judged according to the King’s
(Allah’s) judgment.” The sentence: Death by decapitation for around 600 men and pubescent boys, and enslavement for the women and children. Ibn Ishaq says that the number may have been as high as 800—900 (p. 464).
MERCIFUL MUHAMMAD ORDERS TRENCHES TO BE
DUG FOR THE BEHEADED HEADS TO FALL INTO AND
CONTROL THE BLOOD FLOW
The text of Sirat:
“Then they surrendered, and the apostle confined them in Medina in the quarter of d. al-Harith, a woman of B. al-Najjar. Then the apostle went out to the market of Medina (which is still its market today) and dug trenches in it. Then he sent for them and struck off their heads in those trenches as they were brought out to him in batches.
Among them was the enemy of Allah Huyayy b. Akhtab and Ka`b b. Asad their chief. There were 600 or 700 in all, though some put the figure as high as 800 or 900. As they were being taken out in batches to the apostle they asked Ka`b what he thought would be done with them. He replied, ‘Will you never understand? Don’t you see that the summoner never stops and those who are taken away do
not return? By God it is death!’ This went on until the apostle made an end of them. Huyayy was brought out wearing a flowered robe in which he had made holes about the size of the finger-tips in every part so that it should not be taken from him as spoil, with his hands bound to his neck by a rope. When he saw the apostle he said, ‘By God, I do not blame myself for opposing you, but he who forsakes God will be forsaken.’ Then he went to the men and said, “God’s command is right. A book and a decree, and massacre have been written against the Sons of Israel.” Then he sat down and his head was struck off.”
[Sirat, page 464]
BIG PROBLEM: How Did The SS Jihadist Executioners Decide On Which Jewish Boys To Slaughter Or Leave Alive To Be Sold Into Slavery
During this massacre, the apostle faced a very great problem. How to distinguish between young Jewish boys who could be sold into slavery and young Jewish men who had to lose their heads.
Being a micro manager, the apostle came up with an ingenious solution. To separate adult men from the pre-pubescent boys, Muhammad had his devoted followers – the companions pull down the youngster’s pants and each one examined SS style for pubic hairs around their genitals, and if they had grown any pubic hair, it was enough to behead them.
One would expect this behavior from Hitler and his SS not from a prophet of God.
Muhammad Took One Of The Jewish Women As His Sex Slave
“The apostle had chosen one of their women for himself, Rayhana bint Amr . . . one of the women of Qurayza, and she remained with him until she died, in his possession. The apostle had proposed to marry and put a veil on her, but she said: “Nay, leave me in your power, for that will be easier for me and for you.” So he left her. She had shown repugnance towards Islam when she was captured and clung to Judaism.” (Ibn Ishaq p. 466)
The Looted Property And The Jewish Women And Children Were Divided Among the Muslims
More specifically, Ibn Ishaq says the spoils were divided
among the Muslims thus:
“Then the apostle divided the property, wives, and children . among the Muslims, and he made known on that day the shares of horse and men, and took out the fifth. A horseman got three shares, two for the horse and one for the rider. A man without a horse got one share (p. 466). Then the apostle sent Sa`d b. Zayd al-Ansari brother of b. `Abdu’l-Ashhal with some of the captive women of B. Qurayza to Najd and he sold them for horses and weapons.” [page 466]
Muhammad Enriches Himself:
Muhammad had huge spoils from this “final solution”. Muhammad gets twenty percent of the Jewish property (movable, immovable and human), and the jihadists get eighty percent, to be distributed as he sees fit. At least 600 grown men are killed (those with the ability to fight). This represents probably something like 500 families, each of which on average would have at least a wife and a child, probably several. Consider, 1/5 of the possessions of a whole tribe (possessions of 100 families for Muhammad) plus the profit from selling the women as slaves
Why Does Muhammad Not Show Mercy?
Muhammad needs to reward his jihadists, since they collected no spoils from the departed coalition – Allah gives him permission to do this in Quran 33:27.
And He caused you to inherit their land and their homes and their properties and a land which you have not trodden. And ever is Allah, over all things, competent.
Booty from looted property and from the selling of women and children into slavery is utilized to pay his murderers and buy weapons to re-equip his army. And what makes this entire episode doubly heinous is that Muhammad could have had all of the wealth of the Jews after he banished them, but he still did not take this merciful option.
ALLAH CELEBRATES THE MASSACRE OF BANU QURAYZA
Quran-33:25- “Allah turned back the unbelievers in a state of rage, having not won any good, and Allah spared the believers battle. Allah is, indeed, Strong and Mighty.”
Quran-33:26- “And He brought those of the People of the Book [Jewish people of Banu Qurayza] who supported them from their fortresses and cast terror into their hearts, some of them you slew (men and boys) and some you took prisoners (women and children)”
Do you not hear the screaming and wailing of the women and children of the defenders as God brought their husbands, fathers and brothers (the defenders) down from their secured positions and cast terror into their hearts? Do you not feel the anguished torment of these women and their children? Do you not understand the terror instilled by God into the villagers, themselves the defenders against Muhammad’s aggression?
Words of hate and terror stream out from the teaching
33:26: “in a state of rage” “he threw terror into their hearts” “some you slew (beheaded).”
Can you imagine the power of God the creator of the universe—the full force of the sheer hatred of God striking fear and terror into the hearts and souls of men, women and children, the old and the infirm? Like a sadist, God enjoys torturing these people. Like a master terrorist, he reviles in the moment. God drove the Jews out of their secure forts in fear and terror, so that Muhammad and his co-jihadists could murder them and enslave the women and children
Think about that for a moment. Can anybody in their right mind believe that God if existed would commit such a brutal, immoral and hideous act?
