Did Mohammed really beat his wives?

I read a comment somewhere by an atheist who claimed that Mohammed beat his wives. are there any Muslims out there who can verify this for me?

Updates:
Wow. I sure am learning a LOT about Islam here. apperently fundamentalist atheists are indiscriminate in which religions they lie and/or refuse to learn about.

  • He was never harsh to his wives.
    He treated them the best.
    He also said, "The best of you are those who treat their wife the best."

    When his companions asked him who was his favorite person, he would respond, "Her"

    When they said aside from her, as in for male companions I believe, and he said,, "her father" instead of the name of the friend.

    And so on.

    May peace be upon him.

    • I Dont know how to say it but i will tell it in shortcut for you
      When some says the hadith it means he's going to say something prophet mohammed said it
      and there more than 50,000 hadith
      followers of prophet mohammed used to type every single word he says
      as example : there a follow was called : abo horayra and he used to be with prophet mohammed
      so as i know he used to type every word prophet mohammed says and hadith books you read it as : in hadith abo horayra says : prophet mohammed said : ...
      its like that hope you understood it

    • @NoJoke May God bless you as well :)

  • I don't think he abused them, but he did marry an extremely young girl, which could be considered a form of abuse. However, you must take into consideration that our ancestors would be married off by the age of ~12-16 years old. So different times. Next, back then abuse was seen as causing EXTREME amounts of bodily harm like causing lacerations, breaking of bones, and etc. So while people may say he took care of his wives, you must remember the times and what the people of this time considered abuse. I also remember my friend telling me a story about how Aisha said that: "He struck me on the chest, so hard, it caused me pain." But this could be taken out of context, but I think it is a strong indicator that he would have met the MODERN day North American definition of abuse.

    • You don't say Americans are British people, do you? No. Because they're not. Modern Greece is still divided. There are like 20-some dialects there, and some are so different they can't even speak to other people when they leave their area or city.

    • I reaize that only athenians believed that, but saying "It DIDN'T START from the greeks it started from Athens"would only make sense if Athenians were nt Greek. also, America is a searate politcal entity from Brittain. Ahens and greece are not.

  • I live in a muslim country (i am not) i read a lot of topics about muhammed. But this is the first time I see muhammed beat hos wives :/ i dont think so. If it was true, surely our atheists would mention it. He might marry very young ones, but beat them? Hmm never read before.

  • What does being a muslim have to do with knowing anything about past events that happened 1,400 years ago?
    As a grad student of history, I find this rather offensive and ridiculous. Being a muslim doesn't make you a professor of history. And last time I checked, muslims weren't capable of magically traveling through time.

    • because I've learned from this one youtube channel run by a professional biblical scholar that atheist extremists make a LOT of crap up. (the channel in question being tektontv)

    • Show All
    • What are you trying to say? So according to this stupid video, I'm an extremist because I believe people are born as atheists? That's retarded. Were you born with a certain, political view? No? So what makes you think you were born with a certain religious view?
      And what does all of this even have to do with my initial comment and your question?
      Religious scholars are NOT historians. If you believe what a religious scholar says about history, you might as well believe your 5-year old cousin. The bible is NOT a historical document. I don't care whether you believe in it or not. This is not an atheist view, it's a scientific view. It has absolutely nothing to do with atheism.

    • 1) read the update to the question to get an idea for why I specified for muslims. 2) http://www. tektoonics. com/test/parody/fundyath. html

  • While I'm luckily not a moslem, considering that nowadays they're worried about making their public image more appealing, they're unlikely to tell the truth (not if they're ever telling truth, thanks to taqiyya doctrine LOL).

    In short: yes, he did and later also gave permission to other men to beat wives.

    • also, can you confirm that they also thought that one was either an adult or a child, and that they transitioned from the one to the other the day their 18th birthday came around?

    • I said that as example because media is playing in our minds and washing it

  • More than likely. It is a documented normality in the culture of the times and area in which he lived. Also he married a six year old child and consummated that marriage when she was 9, and led a violent conquest more typical of a warlord then a prophet of peace, but I digress. I'll let the Muslim apologists on this site explain their excuses of these actions to you.

    • did "consumating a marriage" mean the same thing in that culture as it does in this one? because someone else told me that he didn't *have sex* with her until she was 17. also, simply dismissing someone's argument as an "excuse" is the invincible ignorance fallacy. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invincible_ignorance_fallacy

    • if someone actually presents an argument than that's different , but the definition of that fallacy doesn't negate the definition of "excuse". I'll bet my left nut that what follows will be excuses and not arguments as these are two different things.

      "Consummating a marriage" is the descriptor one would use in the English language to explain Mohamed's actions. It's not a translation issue and several Muslim apologists have either tip toed around this accusation and one even straight out admitted this fact during debate, then proceeded with the excuse that it was common in that day and age. to be blunt, the prophet historically fucked a child.

    • @lucasnabizada you just commited the invincible ignorance fallacy. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invincible_ignorance_fallacy also, there are lots of things that the quaran says to do that ISIS fails at, like not shooting people who surrender. So they can't really be used to judge it now can they?

    • @lucasnabizada It's apparent that you're an intransigent conservative.

      That's exactly the point, it's important that the sexist, misogynists people realize that their cultural practices contradict the teachings of their faith.

  • Isn't Mohammed the name of 300million people? Haha.

"Muhammed himself once said "Don't write my words " but after 100 years of his death people didn't do what he said and they started writing words and most of these hadith is lies , but let me give you an example , in Quran says you should never kill an innocent person or you will go to hell , also if anyone murdered its like killing all of the people on this planet so killing is an extremely big sin , but in the fake hadith , it says kill the ones whom doesn't belive in islam , like Quran and hadith are opposite, Quran tells us to love people take care of people but hadith says kill people , but unfortunately westerns always generalize muslims as terrorists , rapists , women beaters coz they don't know that the problem is not the Religion its some of the shitty extrimists who only belive in hadith ,

      hope you get it bro."
