Muhammad & his Revelations:-
"And then it was revealed.." is a mantra that permeates Bukhari Hadith,Muslim, Abu Dawood, Tirmidi and Ibn Ishaq's biography of Muhammad.
In hundreds upon hundreds of instances, an event occured or an action was taken or ordered by Muhammad, for which, AFTERWARDS, a convenient and very appropriate 'revelation' was 'descended', justifying or explaining it by an indisputable 'divine decree'.
In the cases of the Hebrew prophets, they predicted events BEFOREHAND and then these predictions came true. This is the essence of prophecy.
In Muhammad's case, almost none exist in such a manner, but are invariably 'prophesised' AFTER an event had occured and in HIND-sight.
The most remarkable, astounding and shocking realisation that one can come to, after studying the Ahadith, Ibn Ishaq's 'Sirat Rassul'Allah' and most of the Maududi analysis of the 'revealed' verses and suras, is the enormous number of repeated mantras
'..and Allah revealed…' or
'...then it was revealed…' or
' ….then Gabriel revealed….' that fill them.
Almost all such 'revelations' occurred AFTER an event had transpired or because Muhammad needed a divine justification and SANCTION for any and ALL of his requirements, carnal or otherwise.
Allah it seems, from these reports, was ready and waiting at all times, to be at Muhammad's beck and call, to fulfil any and all of his requests instantly and without any prevarications.
Of all the prophets so far recorded, Allah - the god of the pagan Arabs - was most and singularly mindful only of Muhammad's personal needs and requirements.
Maududi Sura IntroductionsSurah 112. Al-Ikhlaas See Section Name
Al-Ikhlas is not merely the name of this Surah but also the title of its contents, for it deals exclusively with Tauhid. The other Surahs of the Quran generally have been designated after a word occurring in them, but in this Surah the word Ikhlas has occurred nowhere. It has been given this name in view of its meaning and subject matter. Whoever understands it and believes in its teaching, will get rid of shirk (polytheism) completely.
In Bukhari Hadith alone, there are more than 450 such hadiths; here are a few of them to enlighten the readers-
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 3.546 Narrated byAbdullah (bin Masud)
The Prophet said, "Whoever takes a false oath to deprive somebody of his property will meet Allah while He will be angry with him.
Allah revealed: 'Verily those who purchase a little gain at the cost of Allah's covenant, and their oaths...' "(3.77)
Al-Ashath came (to the place where 'Abdullah was narrating) and said, "What has Abu 'Abdur-Rahman (i.e. Abdullah) been telling you?
This verse was revealed concerning me. I had a well in the land of a cousin of mine. The Prophet asked me to bring witnesses (to confirm my claim). I said, 'I don't have witnesses.' He said, 'Let the defendant take an oath then.' I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! He will take a (false) oath immediately.' Then the Prophet mentioned the above narration and Allah revealed the verse to confirm what he had said." (See Hadith No. 692)
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 3.601 Narrated byUmar bin Al Khattab
I heard Hisham bin Hakim bin Hizam reciting Surat-al-Furqan in a way different to that of mine. Allah's Apostle had taught it to me (in a different way). So, I was about to quarrel with him (during the prayer) but I waited till he finished, then I tied his garment round his neck and seized him by it and brought him to Allah's Apostle and said, "I have heard him reciting Surat-al-Furqan in a way different to the way you taught it to me." The Prophet ordered me to release him and asked Hisham to recite it. When he recited it, Allah's Apostle said, "It was revealed in this way." He then asked me to recite it. When I recited it, he said, "It was revealed in this way.
The Qur'an has been revealed in seven different ways, so recite it in the way that is easier for you."
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 3.692 Narrated byAbu Wail
Abdullah (bin Mas'ud) said, "Whoever took a false oath in order to grab somebody's property will meet Allah while Allah will be angry with him."
Allah revealed the following verse to confirm that:
"Verily! Those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah's covenant And their oaths...a painful torment." (3.77)
Al-Ash'ath bin Qais came to us and asked as to "what Abu Abdur-Rahman (i.e. Ibn Mas'ud) was telling you." We related the story to him. On that he said, "He has told the truth. This verse was revealed about me. I had some dispute with another man regarding a well and we took the case before Allah's Apostle. Allah's Apostle said (to me), 'Produce two witnesses (to support your claim); otherwise the defendant has the right to take an oath (to refute your claim).' I said, 'The defendant would not mind to take a false oath.' Allah's Apostle then said, 'Whoever took a false oath in order to grab someone else's property will meet Allah, Allah will be angry with him.'
Allah then revealed what confirmed it.
" Al-Ash'ath then recited the following verse: "Verily! Those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah's covenant, And their oaths . . . (to) . . . they shall have a painful torment!' (3.77) (See Hadith No. 546)
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 6.38 Narrated bySahl bin Sad: The Verse
"And eat and drink until the white thread appears to you distinct from the black thread," was revealed, but: "... of dawn" was not revealed (along with it) so some men, when intending to fast, used to tie their legs, one with white thread and the other with black thread and would keep on eating till they could distinguish one thread from the other.
Then Allah revealed
"... of dawn," whereupon they understood that meant the night and the day.
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 6.175 Narrated byIbn Abbas
When the Verse: "If there are twenty steadfast amongst you, they will overcome two hundred." (8.65) was revealed, then it became obligatory for the Muslims that one (Muslim) should not flee from ten (non-Muslims). Sufyan (the sub-narrator) once said, "Twenty (Muslims) should not flee before two hundred (non-Muslims)."
Then there was revealed:
"But now Allah has lightened your (task)..." (8.66)
So it became obligatory that one-hundred (Muslims) should not flee before two hundred (non-Muslims). (Once Sufyan said extra, "The Verse: 'Urge the believers to the fight. If there are twenty steadfast amongst you (Muslims) patient and persevering...' was revealed.") Sufyan said, "Ibn Shabrama said, 'I see that this order is applicable to the obligation of enjoining good and forbidding evil."
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 6.346 Narrated byAbdullah
It (i.e., the imagined smoke) was because, when the Quraish refused to obey the Prophet, he asked Allah to afflict them with years of famine similar to those of (Prophet) Joseph. So they were stricken with famine and fatigue, so much so that they ate even bones. A man would look towards the sky and imagine seeing something like smoke between him and the sky because of extreme fatigue.
So Allah revealed:
"Then watch you for the Day that the sky will bring forth a kind of smoke plainly visible, covering the people; this is a painfull of torment." (44.10-11)
Then someone (Abu Sufyan) came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Invoke Allah to send rain for the tribes of Mudar for they are on the verge of destruction." On that the Prophet said (astonishingly) "Shall I invoke Allah) for the tribes of Mudar? Verily, you are a brave man!" But the Prophet prayed for rain and it rained for them.
Then the Verse was revealed:
"But truly you will return (to disbelief)." (44.15) (When the famine was over and) they restored prosperity and welfare, they reverted to their ways (of heathenism) whereupon Allah revealed:
"On the Day when We shall seize you with a Mighty Grasp. We will indeed (then) exact retribution." (44.16) The narrator said, "That was the day of the Battle of Badr."
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 6.443 Narrated byIbn Abbas
Allah's Apostle went out along with a group of his companions towards 'Ukaz Market. At that time something intervened between the devils and the news of the Heaven, and flames were sent down upon them, so the devils returned. Their fellow-devils said, "What is wrong with you?" They said, "Something has intervened between us and the news of the Heaven, and fires (flames) have been shot at us." Their fellow-devils said, "Nothing has intervened between you and the news of the Heaven, but an important event has happened. Therefore, travel all over the world, east and west, and try to find out what has happened." And so they set out and travelled all over the world, east and west, looking for that thing which intervened between them and the news of the Heaven. Those of the devils who had set out towards Tihama, went to Allah's Apostle at Nakhla (a place between Mecca and Taif) while he was on his way to Ukaz Market. (They met him) while he was offering the Fajr prayer with his companions. When they heard the Holy Qur'an being recited (by Allah's Apostle), they listened to it and said (to each other). This is the thing which has intervened between you and the news of the Heavens." Then they returned to their people and said, "O our people! We have really heard a wonderful recital (Qur'an). It gives guidance to the right, and we have believed therein. We shall not join in worship, anybody with our Lord." (See 72.1-2)
Then Allah revealed to His Prophet (Surat al-Jinn):
"Say: It has been revealed to me that a group (3 to 9) of Jinns listened (to the Qur'an)." (72.1) The statement of the Jinns was revealed to him.
*** The Quran is the only 'holy book' which includes Jinn, Satans & Demons as an important part and parcel of its belief system, even to the extent that these 'enemies of Allah' are used as WITNESSES to the 'VERACITY' and 'AUTHENTICITY' of the Quran ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 7.71 Narrated byUrsa bin Az Zubair
that he asked 'Aisha, saying to her, "O Mother! (In what connection was this Verse revealed):
'If you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with orphan girls (to the end of the verse) that your right hands possess?" - (4.3) Aisha said, "O my nephew! It was about the female orphan under the protection of her guardian who was interested in her beauty and wealth and wanted to marry her with a little or reduced Mahr. So such guardians were forbidden to marry female orphans unless they deal with them justly and give their full Mahr; and they were ordered to marry women other than them." 'Aisha added, "(Later) the people asked Allah's Apostle for instructions,
and then Allah revealed:
'They ask your instruction concerning the women . . . And yet whom you desire to marry.' (4.127)
So Allah revealed to them in this Verse that if a female orphan had wealth and beauty, they desired to marry her and were interested in her noble descent and the reduction of her Mahr; but if she was not desired by them because of her lack in fortune and beauty they left her and married some other woman. So, as they used to leave her when they had no interest in her, they had no right to marry her if they had the desire to do so, unless they deal justly with her and gave her a full amount of Mahr."
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 7.95 & 8.255 Narrated byAnas bin Malik
I was ten years old when Allah's Apostle arrived at Medina. My mother and aunts used to urge me to serve the Prophet regularly, and I served him for ten years. When the Prophet died I was twenty years old, and I knew about the order of Al-Hijab (veiling of ladies) more than any other person when it was revealed. It was revealed for the first time when Allah's Apostle had consummated his marriage with Zainab bint Jahsh. When the day dawned, the Prophet was a bridegroom and he invited the people to a banquet, so they came, ate, and then all left except a few who remained with the Prophet for a long time. The Prophet got up and went out, and I too went out with him so that those people might leave too. The Prophet proceeded and so did I, till he came to the threshold of 'Aisha's dwelling place. Then thinking that these people have left by then, he returned and so did I along with him till he entered upon Zainab and behold, they were still sitting and had not gone. So the Prophet again went away and I went away along with him. When we reached the threshold of 'Aisha's dwelling place, he thought that they had left, and so he returned and I too, returned along with him and found those people had left.
Then the Prophet drew a CURTAIN between me and him, and the Verses of Al-Hijab were revealed.
*** No where in the whole of the Quran is there either 'the verse of Hijab OR Surat al Hijab' which instructs WOMEN to have their whole bodies COVERED except for the EYES ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 8.670 Narrated byAz Zuhri
I heard 'Urwa bin Az-Zubair, Said bin Al-Musaiyab, 'Alqama bin Waqqas and 'Ubaidullah bin 'Abdullah bin 'Uqba relating from 'Aisha, the wife of the Prophet the narration of the people (i.e. the liars) who spread the slander against her and they said what they said, and how Allah revealed her innocence. Each of them related to me a portion of that narration. (They said that 'Aisha said),
''Then Allah revealed the ten Verses starting with:
'Verily! Those who spread the slander...' (24.11-21)
All these verses were in proof of my innocence. Abu Bakr As-Siddiq who used to provide for Mistah some financial aid because of his relation to him, said, "By Allah, I will never give anything (in charity) to Mistah, after what he has said about 'Aisha.'
Then Allah revealed:
'And let not those among you who are good and are wealthy swear not to give (any sort of help) to their kins men...' (24.22)
On that, Abu Bakr said, 'Yes, by Allah, I like that Allah should forgive me,' and then resumed giving Mistah the aid he used to give him and said, 'By Allah! I will never withhold it from him.' "
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 9.294 Narrated byAbdullah
The Prophet said, "If somebody on the demand of a judge takes an oath to grab (a Muslim's) property and he is liar in it, he will meet Allah Who will be angry with him".
So Allah revealed:
"Verily! those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah's Covenant and their oaths..." (3.77)
'Al-Ashath came while Abdullah was narrating (this) to the people. 'Al-Ashath said, "This verse was revealed regarding me and another man with whom I had a quarrel about a well. The Prophet said (to me), "Do you have any evidence?" I replied, "No." He said, "Let your opponent take an oath." I said: "I am sure he would take a (false) oath." Thereupon it was revealed: "Verily! those who purchase a small gain at the cost of Allah's Covenant..." (3.77) (See Hadith No. 72, Vol 6).
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 9.591 Narrated byUrwa bin Az Zubair
Sa'id bin Al-Musaiyab, 'Alqama bin Waqqas and 'Ubaidullah bin 'Abdullah regarding the narrating of the forged statement against 'Aisha, the wife of the Prophet, when the slanderers said what they said and Allah revealed her innocence. 'Aisha said, "But by Allah, I did not think that Allah, (to confirm my innocence), would reveal Divine Inspiration which would be recited, for I consider myself too unimportant to be talked about by Allah through Divine Inspiration revealed for recitation, but I hoped that Allah's Apostle might have a dream in which Allah would reveal my innocence.
So Allah revealed:
'Verily! Those who spread the slander are a gang among you...' (The ten Verses in Surat-an-Nur)" (24.11-20)
From Muslim Hadith, here are a few more-
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 254 Narrated byAbdullah
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) observed: He who has perjured with a view to appropriating the property of a Muslim, is in fact a liar and will meet Allah in a state that will make Him angry with him. He (the narrator) said: There came al-Ash'ath ibn Qays who said (to the people): What does AbuAbdurRahman (the Kunya of Abdullah ibn Umar) narrate to you? They replied: So and so. Upon this he remarked: AbuAbdurRahman told the truth. This (command) has been revealed in my case. There was a piece of land in Yemen, over which I and another person had a claim. I brought the dispute with him to the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) (to decide). He (the Holy Prophet) said: Can you produce any evidence (in your support)? I said: No. He (the Holy Prophet) observed: (Then the decision will be made) on his oath. I said: He would readily take an oath. Upon this the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) remarked: He who has perjured for appropriating the wealth of a Muslim, is a liar and will meet Allah when He is angry with him.
This verse was then revealed:
"Verily those who barter Allah's covenant and their oaths at a small price...." (iii 77)
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 1212 Narrated byAisha

Aisha said: We passed some nights and then the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
Do you know that it has been revealed to me:
"You would be put to trial in the grave"?
Aisha said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) seeking refuge from the torment of the grave after this.
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 1317 Narrated byAl-Bara ibn Azib
This verse was revealed (in this way): "Guard the prayers and the Asr prayer." We recited it (in this very way) as long as Allah desired.
Allah then abrogated it and it was revealed: "Guard the prayers, and the middle prayer.
" Someone who was sitting with Shaqiq (one of the narrators in the chain of transmitters) said: Now it implies the Asr prayer. Upon this al-Bara' said: I have already informed you how this (verse) was revealed and how Allah abrogated it, and Allah knows best. Imam Muslim said: Ashja'i narrated it from Sufyan ath-Thawri, who narrated it from al-Aswad ibn Qays, who narrated it from Uqbah, who narrated it from al-Bara ibn Azib who said: We recited with the Prophet (peace be upon him) (the above-mentioned verse like this, i.e. instead of Salat al-Asr) for a certain period, as it has been mentioned (in the hadith quoted above).

Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 4638 Narrated byNu'man ibn Bashir
As I was (sitting) near the pulpit of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), a man said: I do not care if, after embracing Islam, I do not any good deed (except) distributing drinking-water among the pilgrims. Another said: I do not care if, after embracing Islam, I do not do any good deed beyond maintenance service to the Sacred Mosque. Another said: Jihad in the way of Allah is better than what you have said. Umar reprimanded them and said: Don't raise your voices near the pulpit of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) on Friday. When prayer was over, I entered (the apartment of the Holy Prophet) and asked for his verdict about the matter in which they had differed.
(It was upon this that) Allah, the Almighty and Exalted, revealed the Qur'anic verse:
"Do you make the giving of drinking-water to the pilgrims and the maintenance of the Sacred Mosque equal to (the service of those) who believe in Allah and the Last Day and strive hard in the cause of Allah? They are not equal in the sight of Allah. And Allah guides not the wrong doing people" (ix.20). This tradition has been narrated on the authority of Nu'man ibn Bashir through another chain of transmitters.

"Allah (thus) directs you as regards your children's (inheritance)."

Then this (injunction) was revealed by the verse in Surat an-Nur:
"No blame on you whether you eat in company or separately."
When a rich man (after revelation) invited a man from his people to eat food in his house, he would say: I consider it a sin to eat from it, and he said: a poor man is more entitled to it than I.

When Prophethood was bestowed upon the Prophet (peace be upon him), a man of an-Nadir killed a man of Qurayzah. They said: Give him to us, we shall kill him. They replied: We have the Prophet (peace be upon him) between you and us. So they came to him.
Thereupon the following verse was revealed:
"If thou judge, judge in equity between them."
"In equity" means life for a life.
The following verse was then revealed: "Do they seek of a judgment of (the days) ignorance?"

But they would say: Keep silence, Apostle of Allah! He becomes angry by this name.
So this verse was revealed:
"Nor call each other by (offensive nicknames."
And last but not least, from al Tirmidi Hadith-
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 237 Narrated byAbdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As
Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) heard some people disputing about the Qur'an. Thereupon he said: It was because of this that those gone before you had perished. They set parts of the books against the others (whereas the fact is) that the Book of Allah has been revealed with one part confirming the others. Therefore, do not falsify some parts with the others and speak only that which you know; that which you do not know, refer it to one who knows it well.

P288: ... Their Muslim brethren reproached them for what they had done, and the Quraysh said " Muhammad and his companions have violated the SACRED MONTH, shed blood
therein , taken booty and captured men" ....
Allah sent down to his apostle
"They ask thee concerning fighting in the Prohibited Month. Say: "Fighting therein is a grave (offence); but graver is it in the sight of Allah to prevent access to the path of Allah to deny Him to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque and drive out its members. Tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter. Nor will they cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith if they can. And if any of you turn back from their faith and die in unbelief their works will bear no fruit in this life and in the Hereafter; they will be Companions of the Fire and will abide therein.
[Al Baqara 2:217]
P321: When Badr was over, Allah sent down the whole Sura al Anfal about it. With regard to their quarrelling about the spoils, there came down: " They will ask you abot the spoils, say, the spoils belong to Allah and his apostle, so fear Allah and be at peace with one another ,and obey Allah and his apostle if you are believers" [Al Anfal 8:1]
P322: Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them."
[Al Anfal 8:12]
P326: "O apostle! rouse the believers to the fight. If there are twenty amongst you patient and persevering they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred they will vanquish a thousand of the unbelievers: for these are a people without understanding.
[Al Anfal 8:65]
For the present Allah hath lightened your (task) for He knoweth that there is a weak spot in you: but (even so) if there are a hundred of you patient and persevering they will vanquish two hundred and if a thousand they will vanquish two thousand with the leave of Allah: for Allah is with those who patiently persevere
[Al Anfal 8:66]
*** One does not have to be a scholar or a rocket scientist to realise, that there is something unusual and unsavoury about the fact, that Muhammad claimed that all his 'revelations' were divinely inspired when in fact, based upon all the above stories alone, not one of them could have been.
Each one of these stories, and hundreds more in both the Quran and other Hadiths, prove beyond a reasonable doubt, that they were
MADE TO ORDER
'revelations' by Muhammad, as and when he needed them.
The whole of the Quran is nothing more than Muhammad's own
projected into the unsuspecting mouth of Allah, the supreme pagan rock god of the Quraysh tribe, embedded into the corner wall of the Ka'ba, called the BLACK STONE.
Muhammad, Gabriel, Allah & Satan are ONE & the SAME character:
The most shocking and disturbing realisation from all of the above, is the fact that even among the most learned followers of Muhammad, it is IMPOSSIBLE for any of them to admit this fact because it would destroy and completely discredit Muhammad, his Quran and the whole of Muhammadan 'ISLAM' ***
