Mo's True Miracle Wasn't The Quran. It Was This...

2020.05.22 12:55 TheMightyUltron Mo's True Miracle Wasn't The Quran. It Was This...

Allah's Apostle’s greatest miracle was not the Quran. It was his capacity for lovemaking. Allah had given him the libido of 30 men.
Most infidels don’t even consider the Quran to be a big deal. They say a village idiot can come up with such a book. They claim that many people have written much better books than Quran. But I ask them, can anyone match the apostle’s lovemaking prowess?
Can they at the age 60+ make love to 10 young women in a single night? Yes, the apostle could do it. That is an irrefutable proof of his prophethood, which cannot be duplicated.
Bukhari,Volume 1, Book 5, Number 268:
“Allah's Prophet was given the strength (sexual) of thirty men”.
The Apostle could make love (continuously) to all his wives (9 to 11) in one night.
Volume 1, Book 5, Number 268:
“The Prophet used to visit all his wives in a round, during the day and night and they were eleven in number.
The Prophet was given the strength of thirty (men).”
Bukhari,Volume 7, Book 62, Number 6:
The Prophet used to go round (have sexual relations with) all his wives in one night
Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 5, Number 270:
Aisha said, “I scented Allah’s Apostle and he went round (had sexual intercourse with) all his wives.”
PROPHET SULAIMAN WAS GIVEN SIMILAR STRENGTH.
Such sexual capability and stamina is Allah’s miracle, which is only given to prophets.
Prophet Sulaiman used to have sex with 100 women in one night.
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 74i:
Allah’s Apostle said, “Once Solomon, son of David said, ‘(By Allah) Tonight I will have sexual intercourse with one hundred (or ninety-nine) women each of whom will give birth to a knight who will fight in Allah’s Cause"
EVEN GIBRAEEL VISITED APOSTLE’S BEDROOM
His lovemaking was complimented by visits of archangel Gibraeel.
Once apostle even introduced Gibraeel to Ayesha. Ordinary mortals cannot see angels, needless to say she was clueless and could not see him.
Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 57, Number 112:
Narrated Abu Salama:
‘Aisha said, “Once Allah’s Apostle said (to me), ‘O Aisha (‘Aisha)! This is Gabriel greeting you.’ I said, ‘Peace and Allah’s Mercy and Blessings be on him, you see what I don’t see’ ” She was addressing Allah ‘s Apostle.
ALL HIS OTHER WIVES WATCHED HIM MAKE LOVE
Apostle’s love making was outstanding and was watched (and admired) by all his wives….
Bukhari, Book 008, Number 3450:
Anas (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) had nine wives. They (all the wives) used to gather every night in the house of one where he had to come (and stay that night).
PEEPING TOMS ALSO WATCHED
Bukhari , Volume 9, Book 83, Number 38a:
A man peeped into one of the dwelling places of the Prophet.
Muslim, Book 025, Number 5369:
Anas b. Malik reported that a person peeped in some of the holes (in the doors) of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him).
Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 83, Number 38:
Narrated Sahl bin Sa’d As-Sa’idi:
A man peeped through a hole in the door of Allah’s Apostle’s house,
ALLAH BLESSED HIM WITH SPECIAL PRIVILEDGES FOR SEX
Allah not only gave him extraordinary capability for sexual activity but also gave him special privileges to use those capabilities.
Q33.50 : O Prophet! In addition to all your wives, slave girls and captured women, we have made lawful to you all your first cousins and any believing woman if she gave herself to you, and if you desire her.
ALLAH BLESSED HIM WITH DIVINE INSPIRATIONS AFTER SEX
Allah blessed his lovemaking with divine inspirations afterwards.
Tabari Vl7, page :7 Ayesha said
“Inspiration came to him when he and I were under a single blanket”.
Bukhari Vol 5 Bk57 N 119
Allah's Prophet said, "By Allah, the Divine Inspiration never came to me while I was under the blanket of any woman except Aesha.”
WOMEN OFFERED THEMSELVES TO HIM
Allah's Apostle got solicited by hot women all the time (apparently by the publicity of his greatness in bed)...😉
Bukhari,Volume 7, Book 62, Number 24:
A woman came to Allah’s Apostle and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! I have come to give you myself
Bukhari,Volume 7, Book 62, Number 48:
Narrated Hisham’s father:
Khaula bint Hakim was one of those ladies who presented themselves to the Prophet. ‘Aisha said, “Doesn’t a lady feel ashamed for presenting herself to a man?”
Bukhari,Volume 7, Book 62, Number 53:
Narrated Thabit Al-Banani:
“A woman came to Allah’s Apostle and presented herself to him, saying, ‘O Allah’s Apostle, have you any need for me ?’ “Thereupon Anas’s daughter said, “What a shameless lady she was! Shame! Shame!” Anas said, “She was better than you; she had a liking for the Prophet"
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 54:
“A woman presented herself to the Prophet.”
Bukhari,Volume 7, Book 62, Number 58:
Narrated Sahl bin Sad:
"A woman came to Allah’s Apostle and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! I have come to you to present myself to you”
MO'S HIGH LIBIDO CAUSED QUICK AROUSALS
Allah's Apostle got quickly aroused at sight of (attractive) women.
Sahih Muslim, Book 008, Number 3240:
“Jabir reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) saw a woman, and so he came to his wife,Zainab, as she was tanning a leather and had sexual intercourse with her”.
SEXUALLY AROUSED BY CLOSE RELATIVES
One day Apostle of Allah walked into his adopted son Zaid’s house. Zaid was not there but he caught a glimpse of his voluptuous and beautiful wife Zainab (she was apostle’s first cousin) in her birthday suit.
Tabari wrote:
“One day Muhammad went out looking for Zaid. Now there was a covering of hair cloth 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”.
The admiration aroused him instantly, which Zainab also noticed and mentioned it to her husband Zaid later. He rushed to his father’s house and offered Zainab to him. Mohammed worried about possible bad press and refused to accept it. But Allah will not take no for an answer and insisted on their union.
Q 33:37 We gave her (Zaid’s wife) unto thee in marriage, so that (henceforth) there may be no sin for believers in respect of wives of their adopted sons”.
AROUSED BY WIFE’S MAIDS
Once he entered his wife Hafsa’s room for some reason. Hafsa was not there but he found her lovely young maid Maria instead. He grabbed her and jumped into the bed with her for a quickie. But the quickie was not quick enough and Hafsa walked in and started yelling.
To quieten her down and to please her he promised never to touch her maid again. However Allah did not approve of this sacrifice and revealed the following ayas:
Q66.1 SHAKIR: O Prophet! why do you forbid (yourself) that which Allah has made lawful for you (slave girl Maria); you seek to please your wife(Hafsa)
66.2 Allah has sanctioned for you to break your promise (go sleep with Hafsa’s maid)
AROUSED BY LITTLE GIRLS
Allah's Apostle was always helpless because of his 30 man libido and he got excited even when he saw little girls.
Ibn Ishaq: Suhayli, 2.79: In the riwaya of Yunus Ibn Ishaq recorded that the apostle saw (Ummu’l-Fadl when she was baby crawling before him and said, ‘If she grows up and I am still alive I will marry her.’ (ref.10, p. 311)
Muhammad saw Um Habiba the daughter of Abbas while she was fatim (age of nursing) and he said, “If she grows up while I am still alive, I will marry her.”(Musnad Ahmad, Number 25636)
AROUSED BY DREAMS OF LITTLE GIRLS
Twice he dreamt of a little girl, the 6 year old pretty daughter of his best friend Abu. She was wrapped in a silk cloth. He uncovered the silk cloth to see more of her.
Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 15:
Narrated ‘Aisha:
Allah’s Apostle said (to me), “You have been shown to me twice in (my) dreams. A man was carrying you in a silken cloth and said to me, ‘This is your wife.’ I uncovered it; and behold, it was you. I said to myself, ‘If this dream is from Allah, He will cause it to come true.'”
He ended up marrying the 6 year old girl of his dreams.
MO'S HIGH LIBIDO CAUSED REALISTIC DAY DREAMING
Allah's Apostle could think of having sex with his wives and it felt just like real thing...😉
Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 71, Number 660:
Narrated Aisha:
“Allah’s Apostle used to think that he had sexual relations with his wives while he actually had not”.
DRY CLEANING
His day dreaming was so realistic that he even got wet spots on his garments. Ayesha dry cleaned those spots.
Sahih Bukhari,Book 002, Number 0572:
Ayesha said “In case I found that (semen) on the garment of the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) dried up, I scraped it off with my nails”.
APOSTLE’S LIBIDO HAD ITS LIMITS
Apostle was turned off instantly whenever he was suspected of shadiness.
One night Ayesha got a punch instead of getting sex because she got suspicious of his strange activities and followed him at night (without his knowledge) to a cemetery, where he stood in darkness waving his hands.
Muslimi,Book 004, Number 2127:
Ayesha narrated. “He struck me on the chest which caused me pain.”
(the hadith is too long, one can read on usc.edu/msa)
HE KICKED HIS NEW BRIDE AL SHANBA OUT OF BED FOR SAYING THIS
When the apostle was in bed with his new young and pretty bride Al Shanba bint Amr bin Ghiffuriya, she told him that if he was a real prophet, his most beloved 2 year old son Ibrahim would not have died of sickness after he prayed day and night for him.
Allah's Apostle kicked her out and divorced her without consummation of the marriage.
(She was lucky to have been just kicked out. Allah demands death for doubting Mohammed)
Truly, if a man's life story can be told through his sexcapades, that man's name would be Muhammad.
Thanks for reading.

2020.04.22 23:54 muppet2011ad [Event] Decision '25

Lulzim Basha sat with his family, though his eyes were glued to the TV screen. This was his third election as leader of the Democratic Party, and his last chance to win the office of Prime Minister, which he had coveted for so long. Soon enough, the results given by that screen would be the arbiter of his fate, either propelling his political career forward, or ending it with a whimper. Throughout the day, the news he had been receiving was positive - turnout was looking good, and whilst there were reports of intimidation, it wasn't more extreme than had been planned for. None of this deterred the growing nervousness as a single voice emanated from the TV:
"It's been the most exciting and unpredictable election of a generation. Tonight, we discover the results. Welcome to Decision '25!"
Here began the long night for Lulzim, and for every hopeful politician and party across the country. By morning, it was clear what the results were:
Results
Rama's government had been dealt a crippling blow by the opposition parties. Despite still being the largest party in the Parliament, the government could no longer command a majority without winning over the support of the Socialist Movement for Integration or the Democratic Party, neither of which were inclined to support them. Nevertheless, both Rama and Basha claimed the right to form a government as Prime Minister.
In a move to assert the Democratic Party's right to govern, Basha immediately opened up coalition negotiations with Monika Kryemadhi, hoping to form a "grand coalition" between the centre-right and centre-left as had existed from 2009-2013. The two had already held closed-doors talks on the topic before the election, recognising that they would likely end up in this situation following the election, so had plans in place to reconcile their differing manifestos. After a few weeks of back and forth, the parties had a workable agreement that they could use to enter government.
Under the agreement, Lulzim Basha would become Albania's 34th Prime Minister, with Monika Kryemadhi taking the post of Deputy PM. Her party would also be given the major post of Europe and Foreign Affairs, along with a smattering of smaller cabinet positions. The two parties published a document titled Albanian Spring, outlining the combined platform of the coalition agreement. The centrepiece of the platform was a comprehensive package of political reforms, aimed at improving the accountability of politicians, developing the transparency of public bodies, and combating corruption in the government and civil service. On social issues, including LGBT rights, the document takes a fairly liberal stance, though the coalition conceded that it would be far from their first priority. Economically, the two parties' platforms were harder to reconcile, owing to their ideological differences. Rather than risk their chance at government over early disagreements, both parties decided this would be a problem for "later", issuing a vague commitment to a more technocratic policy-making. The most likely outcome is the two operate on a case-by-case basis, with concessions to the left being made on some legislation in exchange for a broadly centrist policy.
With the agreement being signed in mid-July, Basha's claim to the right to form a government was made concrete. With a workable majority in Parliament, the President was forced to remove Rama as PM, appointing Basha and his new government to office. After 12 years in office, the Socialist Party had finally been removed, and work could begin on dismantling some of the more insidious elements of their regime.

2013.06.07 17:25 LittleWhiteTab Out of your comfort-zones, and into the streets, Americans. You owe it not just to yourselves, but the entire world.

I originally posted this topic at /ChangeMyView to give it some sort of basic vetting process before opening it up to a larger discussion, but seeing as how few responses have been forthcoming, I have figured it would be worthwhile to start placing my writing elsewhere.
Grab a beer, pack a bowl, and break out the Ramen, this is going to be a long one. There will be no TL;DR. I will not cheapen my thoughts that I feel strongly about --but am willing to reconsider-- by trying to sum them up in a way that fails to adequately communicate my position.
We have all seen it by now, but it is evident that the United States government has obtained all of the qualities of a police state. Citizens are executed without due process. In order to give you a sense of just how long the list actually is, I encourage you to check out this one redditor's handiwork detailing only the surface of the problems faced by American society as a result of institutional designs to manipulate and surveil the wider captive public.
It is not hyperbole to say our police state has developed beyond both the Nazi and Soviet experiments with secretly monitoring citizens. This is the point where Americans need to snap out of their battered-wife syndrome reflex of defending the gross oversteps of the government after they have been exposed and realize "oh shit, it really is that bad". This is the point where Americans need to realize that a week in the streets is a small price to pay for living in a world where regular folks aren't targeted by broad government dragnets digging up and keeping every detail about your life.
When this is coupled with the obvious two-tiered justice system, we can see that regular folks are being reduced to what could probably be described best as contract serfdom. Cynics will invariably claim that this "simply is the way it is", and that "no effort could ever overturn it". Americans are "lazy", "stupid", and generally on the shallower end of the gene pool; of course, this is nonsense. True, Americans are kept in a blissful state of unawareness, but this blissful state is often rocked by the realities of hardship that seem to be raising their head with greater frequency. If anything, the claim of American Ignorance is a projection of the cynics own inability to even imagine the possibility of an alternative to the existing arrangement.
When we look in our own communities, we can see that unemployment continues to devastate most of us, and we even are approaching points where destroying sustainable means of feeding oneself are being actively targeted.
All of this, following a president who was popularly elected on platforms of transparency and openness that has turned out to be a legitimate threat to our civil liberties (and we can thank his Republican collaborator-predecessor for setting the precedent). A president who has from the beginning sold us lies and half-truths. This isn't a Democrat thing. This isn't a Republican thing. This is a Plutocrat thing. This is a group of people who are in all virtually unaccountable in any meaningful sense, making decisions which directly impact us all, and hardly for the better.
So what do I propose? Shut down everything. Turn off your computers (unless absolutely vital), turn off your cell phones (unless absolutely vital), turn off your televisions (and put them on the curb). For how long? As long as it takes. A day. A week. A month. However long it takes for every single person in a position of executive power to leave that position. If we took a step for each phone call we made that was caught in the dragnet, we would have marched our way all the way to DC, if not the political centers closest to us.
At this point, we have nothing to lose but a false sense of comfort and a bleak outlook for the vast majority of the American population into the foreseeable future. The very fact that CISPA has raised its ugly head twice in two years suggests that this isn't simply the result of well-intentioned people trying to create a framework of balanced safety and liberty and having those good intentions paving the road to hell, but a deliberate attempt to monitor and observe the American population on a scale greater than already exists. It can only get worse.
How should it play out? I don't have every answer, but I have imagined something that simultaneously creates alternative methods of governance and works with part of the existing framework of the government that still has desirability.
The Revolt
First, students stage sit ins, walk outs, and teach ins. School has already ended in parts of the country, but in others it still goes on into the month. Truthfully, it is they who will bear the brunt of the existing world if we fail. They have the most stake in the world (they'll be here longer than most of us, generally speaking). People should go into work intermittently, and arrange with their neighbors to find alternatives to the services they would normally go elsewhere to seek. This might include everything from creating a mutual credit system (allowing the community to buy and sell goods by putting up their own effort/work/goods as collateral) to organizing barter-pools to creating neighborhood watches.
The point should be to abstain from as much "mainstream" government and business as we can possibly manage; it isn't always possible in every circumstance, but the focus should be to create the structures which will exist alongside the government for the duration of the revolt that operate in more democratic fashions. By empowering each other, we can easily create sustainable and accountable alternatives (if I might in indulge in fantasy, it would be wonderful to see most government services turned into producer and social cooperatives).
March on each politicians home and office, and demand their resignation. By pressuring each one out, it would prompt special elections that would lead into the next step.
When the government cracks down, we lash out. Avoid destroying shit if we can, but no revolt is perfect and we should be prepared to defend ourselves, and should not fear or look poorly on the destruction of property if it means saving people from serious harm (I'm looking at you, police tanks). It is time to accept that the police as an institution have made their decision when it comes to protecting the interests of those in and closest to the government. They have accepted a paycheck and put aside their considerations about community, and have literally sold out their interests to the government. One can easily be in favor of an orderly society and still opposed the governments acts. The two are not exclusive, and police officers do have a choice.
The Sortition
While the government struggles to deal with the Revolt, we will carry out the Great American Sortition. Anyone can sign up, filling out their information and recording a YouTube video to get a sense of what they were like (emphasizing honesty; everyone has skeletons, don't be afraid to share yours if you think its going to be a big deal later on). Assuming each participant passes basic screening measures (not a fake, literate, generally competent, preferably someone who isn't involved with a major corporation, political party, or high up in a government bureaucracy). They will renounce any political allegiances and if registered to vote, become independents.
After the sign up closes, everyone will be placed into a "hat", and names will be drawn along the lines of a predetermined number and order based on the estimations of the participant to fundamentally shift control of political power to the Sortition participants. Before the names are drawn however, the Sortition will select one major political goal that will be the main focus of the group pulled from the "hat". Those pulled from the "hat" will then be tasked with completing that political goal by creating a small-crowd funded campaign. The campaign doesn't need to be massive in scope, just big enough to provide visibility about the project and allow it to run without having to turn to corporate or political sources.
To sum it up, it would be a Reddit Political Hug, overloading the system with votes for the selected sortition candidates.
The Aftermath
Whichever cause selected is likely to be one that would go a long way towards impacting most people. We might do a debt amnesty (we should do a debt amnesty). We might end the War on Drugs and pardon all non-violent drug offenders. We might grant total amnesty to all migrants living in the United States territories (we should give them residence amnesty). We might give privilege of office to people younger (there is no reason we couldn't or shouldn't). Hopefully, this Reddit Political Hug will have sent the two dominant parties into a tailspin, allowing for the rise of popular parties or even a complete shift away from parties and consensus decision making.
So, there it is. Out of your homes, out of your offices, out of your schools and into this street. This Monday should be our Monday. I mean, has it ever seemed strange to anyone that American culture -- for all its talk of democracy being a core component to the American character -- never once developed a cultural day of the week where we could take our time to focus on our most important concerns in our community ? Think about it for a moment: we take a cultural day of worship for granted, but never once consider the possibility of a day where we can directly participate in the organization and running of our communities in a country that widely claims to be a secular democracy!
Leaving our future up to people who are so removed from our concerns turns the social contract into a suicide pact. We need to re-shift our focus back to our communities and remember that liberty and safety can be had if we learn to work with each other. In fact, most external threats to our safety only exist as a direct result of the governments foreign policy. If we don't owe it to ourselves, we at least owe to everyone else in the world to gum up the machine that is slowly driving them into oblivion.
So... can anyone tell me why we should continue on our current trajectory and not do something radical to save ourselves and our kids? What is there to lose? The next sweetheart of the Mainstream Political World will offer us nothing different, so why continue doing something we have proven simply won't work? The only thing that really can stop this from succeeding is saying "I'd rather continue to live under this system, and let it play out despite the fact that its destroying the fabric of society".
Why not try something new?

2013.06.07 01:39 LittleWhiteTab I thinkI believe the only meaningful resolution to the scandals involving abuse of political power in America is a wide-scale popular revolt a la Turkey. I believe that point is now. CMV.

Grab a beer, pack a bowl, and break out the Ramen, this is going to be a long one. There will be no TL;DR. I will not cheapen my thoughts that I feel strongly about --but am willing to reconsider-- by trying to sum them up in a way that fails to adequately communicate my position.

I mean, has it ever seemed strange to anyone that American culture -- for all its talk of democracy being a core component to the American character -- never once developed a cultural day of the week where we could take our time to focus on our most important concerns in our community ? Think about it for a moment: we take a cultural day of worship for granted, but never once consider the possibility of a day where we can directly participate in the organization and running of our communities in a country that widely claims to be a secular democracy!
Leaving our future up to people who are so removed from our concerns turns the social contract into a suicide pact. We need to re-shift our focus back to our communities and remember that liberty and safety can be had if we learn to work with each other. In fact, most external threats to our safety only exist as a direct result of the governments foreign policy. If we don't owe it to ourselves, we at least owe to everyone else in the world to gum up the machine that is slowly driving them into oblivion.
So. Tell me why we should continue on our current trajectory and not do something radical to save ourselves and our kids? What is there to lose? The next sweetheart of the Mainstream Political World will offer us nothing different, so why continue doing something we have proven simply won't work? The only thing that really can stop this from succeeding is saying "I'd rather continue to live under this system, and let it play out despite the fact that its destroying the fabric of society".
Why not try something new?
