Asma bint Marwan's Murder:-                

       The story of her murder as a result of the direct orders of Muhammad is not mentioned in the Ahadith but is very well documentd by Ibn Ishaq's P. 675.

       After the murder of Abu Afak for criticising Muhammad, for the massacre of the Quraysh nobles at Badr, she too became incensed and blamed Muhammad and his followers in a poem
- the usual newspapers of the Arabian tribes - condemning them.

       For this , once more, Muhammad incited his followers to murder her, which act was committed by Umayr b. 'Adiy al Khatmi with Muhammad's full blessing.


       After Muhammad came to Madina/ Yathrib he began to grow in power. However, a number of people, both Jew (in fact Judaised Arabs) and Arab, opposed him. Muhammad began to silence his opposition by various means. One of these means was to have them ASSASSINATED.

       Muhammad did have a number of enemies and critics, some were dangerous, others were ordinary people who lived in the area and thought nil of Muhammad. They spoke their minds as all Arabs were able and FREE to do in the 'pre Islamic' era.

       One by one, they were silenced. Through treaties, intrigue, treachery or outright terror, Muhammad gained power in Madina. Eventually, he was master of the area. He knew his followers loved and feared him, and would die for him. They were at his disposal; and at times, he chose to use them to accomplish his desires.

    In Yathrib (Madina), Muhammad ordered the MURDER of a number of people who either satirised or objected to his methods of terror. One of them was `Asma' bint Marwan. Her crime was that she spoke out against Muhammad for having another man
  - who objected to his deeds - murdered, named Abu Afak. In his displeasure towards her, Muhammad asked his followers to ASSASSINATE her as well. She was murdered while she slept.


       From the Sirat Rasul Allah (A. Guilaume's translation "The Life of Muhammad") pages 675, 676.

She was of B. Umayyya b. Zayd. When Abu `Afak had been killed she displayed disaffection. `Abdullah b. al-Harith b. Al-Fudayl from his father said that she was married to a man of
B. Khatma called Yazid b. Zayd. Blaming Islam and its followers she said:

          I despise B. Malik and al-Nabit
          and `Auf and B. al-Khazraj.
          You obey a stranger who is none of yours,
          One not of Murad or Madhhij. {1}
          Do you expect good from him after the killing of your chiefs
          Like a hungry man waiting for a cook's broth?
          Is there no man of pride who would attack him by surprise
          And cut off the hopes of those who expect aught from him?

{1}  "Two tribes of Yamani origin."

    Hassan b. Thabit [Muhammad's poet] answered her:

          Banu Wa'il and B. Waqif and Khatma
          Are inferior to B. al-Khazrahj.
          When she called for folly woe to her in her weeping,
          For death is coming.
          She stirred up a man of glorious origin,
          Noble in his going out and in his coming in.
          Before midnight he dyed her in her blood
          And incurred no guilt thereby.

           When the apostle heard what she had said he said, "Who will rid me of Marwan's daughter?" `Umayr b. `Adiy al-Khatmi who was with him heard him, and that very night he went to her house and killed her.

        In the morning he came to the apostle and told him what he had done and he [Muhammad] said, "You have helped Allah and His apostle, O `Umayr!" When he asked if he would have to bear any evil consequences the apostle said, "Two goats won't butt their heads about her", so `Umayr went back to his people.

           Now there was a great commotion among B. Khatma that day about the affair of bint [daughter of] Marwan. She had five sons, and when `Umayr went to them from the apostle he said, "I have killed bint Marwan, O sons of Khatma. Withstand me if you can; don't keep me waiting."

       ***    What kind of 'religion' is Islam really?

       Soon after `Umayr murdered `Asma', he went to her family and mocked them. He was laughing in their faces that he had murdered their mother and that they were powerless to do anything about it.

       Here we have a follower of Muhammad who sneaked into the bedroom of a sleeping  and defenceless  mother and slaughtered her; can any moral human being find any bravery or justification for such a deed? A deed that Muhammad extolled? ***

"That was the first day Islam became powerful among B. Khatma; before that those who were Muslims concealed the fact. The first of them to accept Islam was `Umayr b. `Adiy who was called the "Reader", and `Abdullah b. Aus and Khuzayma b. Thabit. The day after Bint Marwan was killed the men of B. Khatma became Muslims because they saw the power of Islam.

         *** The B. Khatma started to convert "saw the power of Islam".

       Here, one of their own women, a mother, was murdered while sleeping, and instead of being appalled and enraged, they began to convert to Islam because they were terrorised.

       According to all the Ahadith and especially to Ibn Ishaq's "Sirat Rasu'l Allah", most Pagan Arabs converted to Muhammad's version of Islam because they were literally TERRORISED or BRIBED into it ***

       From Ibn Sa`d's Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir, translated by S. Moinul Haq, volume 2, pages 30-31.

Then (occurred) the sariyyah of `Umayr ibn `Adi Ibn Kharashah al-Khatmi against `Asma' Bint Marwan, of Banu Umayyah Ibn Zayd, when five nights had remained from the month of Ramadan, in the beginning of the nineteenth month from the hijrah of the apostle of Allah. `Asma' was the wife of Yazid Ibn Zayd Ibn Hisn al-Khatmi. She used to revile Islam, offend the prophet and instigate the (people) against him. She composed verses.

Umayr Ibn Adi came to her in the night and entered her house. Her children were sleeping around her. There was one whom she was suckling. He searched her with his hand because he was blind, and separated the child from her. He thrust his sword in her chest till it pierced up to her back. Then he offered the morning prayers with the prophet at al-Medina.

The apostle of Allah said to him: "Have you slain the daughter of Marwan?" He said: "Yes. Is there something more for me to do?" He [Muhammad] said: "No. Two goats will butt together about her. This was the word that was first heard from the apostle of Allah. The apostle of Allah called him `Umayr, "basir" (the seeing).

       *** If  "No two goats will butt together about her...", then she could not possibly have been a threat to Muhammad. She was only a female individual in a tribe. Muhammad could have objected to her elders and they would have dealt with her.

       According to the Arabian traditions pertaining at the time, she was a free woman who had every right to air her opinions.

       By what right or justification did Muhammad order her murder?

       There was no 'revelation' instructing him to do so. She was not a threat to him; so why have her assassinated? This lady only troubled Muhammand and for this alone, he wanted her silenced.

       The answer is crystal clear when one studies the Ahadith and Muhammad's personality. He was, without a shadow of a doubt, a

                           PATHOLOGICAL NARCISSIST.

       As such, he never tolerated any kind of OPPOSITION or SATIRE.

       He had anyone and everyone who had opposed him ealier - in poetry, in insults or in deeds - murdered, whether they were young or old, male or female, free or slave, even when they were in the HARAM precincts and holding to the Curtains of the Ka'ba.

       He never bloodied his hands by murdering his victims himself, but acted  like all leaders of Terrorist Organizations, he sent others to do his
'dirty work' ***


In "23 Years; A Study of the Prophetic Career of Mohammad", by Ali Dashti, (Mazda Press, 1994), Dashti also references the murders of Abu `Afak and `Asma' b. Marwan. He wrote (page 100):

    Abu Afak, a man of great age (reputedly 120 years) was killed because he lampooned Mohammad. The deed was done by Salem b. 'Omayr at the behest of the Prophet, who had asked, "Who will deal with this rascal for me?" The killing of such an old man moved a poetess, Asma b. Marwan, to compose disrespectful verses about the Prophet, and she too was assassinated.


       It is obvious that `Asma' b. Marwan was not a legitimate threat to Muhammad. She was only a nuisance that Muhammad could not tolerate.

       If we use the same 'logic' and 'justice' as Muhammad used against those who satirised or threatened him verbally and apply it to our modern times, then it should be LEGITIMATE for the USA (Big Satan) and Israel (Little Satan) - who are threatened by both Ahmadinajat of Iran and Nasrallah of Lebanon and the hundreds of thousands of their followerrs who shout

                "Death to America and Death to Israel"

        to attack them and slaughter them at will, whenever and where-ever they find them.

       What is most alarming about Muhammadan Islam is its inability to use reason to sway other human beings to their point of view but have a propensity to use extreme violence instead.

       Where are "women's rights", or "human rights" now in 'Islam'?

       If Muhammad denied freedom of speech to others, how does that reflect upon 'Islam' and what we see occurring in the 'Islamic world' today?

        Why is it that the more fundamentalist 'Muslim' nations become, the more oppressive they are toward all basic human rights?

       If the leader of 'Islam', Muhammad, showed no mercy or compassion but encouraged his followers to deceive, to cheat, to betray, to ambush and to be totally immoral to achieve his ends, then it should not be a great surprise that his followers, even after the lapse of almost 1400 years exhibit exactly the same DEPRAVED SYMPTOMS ***
