Coitus interruption (or spilling ones seed!)

Spilling one's seed, and that also in one's own clothes? Tauba! Tauba! This is absolutely un-Islamic. After all, the seed of a man is utterly holy and it cannot be discharged anywhere else other than in its legitimate place, that is, inside a vagina. How strange then, when we find that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), himself did spill his seed on his clothes and his beloved child-bride Aisha used to wash it so that he could perform his regular prayers. Unbelievable, you may say, but that is what did happen in reality! 

Let us now hear from the very mouth of Bibi Aisha. Here is the hadith from the most authentic source: 

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 4, Number 231:  

Narrated Sulaiman bin Yasar:
I asked 'Aisha about the clothes soiled with semen. She replied, "I used to wash it off the clothes of Allah's Apostle and he would go for the prayer while water spots were still visible. " 

Sunaan Abu Dawud: Book 11, Number 2161:

Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin:

I and the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) used to lie in one cloth at night while I was menstruating. If anything from me smeared him, he washed the same place (that was smeared), and did not wash beyond it. If anything from him smeared his clothe, he washed the same place and did not wash beyond that, and prayed with it (i.e. the clothe). 

We may wonder whether Muhammad (pbuh) used to practice coitus interruptus or not or is that he became so much excited coming close to his child bride that he had a premature ejaculation. If he did not deposit his seed (read sperm) in the right place, then, could it be the reason why Aisha never became pregnant? 

How about the foot soldiers of Muhammad (pbuh)? Those soldiers were, in fact sexual predators. Whenever one of these soldiers got hold of an infidel captive woman, he will immediately jump on her to have sexual intercourse with her. He would not even hesitate to lay himself upon a pregnant captive. It became such a serious problem that Muhammad (pbuh) and Allah Himself had to interfere to impose the condition that these soldiers could indulge in sex orgies only after these women were clear of their periods. We find that during the raid on Khaybar, among other restrictions, Muhammad had to prohibit sexual intercourse with pregnant captives by his followers (ref. 10, p.510). But this restriction did not prevent the Jihadis from enjoying the flesh of these hapless captives by indulging in the spilling of their seeds outside the vagina of these women. There are many ahadith that clearly demonstrate the utter vulgarity and inhuman sexual indulgence of these foot soldiers of Islam. Here I have selected a few of these utterly crude ahdith for you to pursue and enjoy the holy pornography, a la Islamic style. (More on sex with captives and slaves will be found in a subsequent part 5/6) 

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 62, Number 137:

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:

We got female captives in the war booty and we used to do coitus interruptus with them. So we asked Allah's Apostle about it and he said, "Do you really do that?" repeating the question thrice, "There is no soul that is destined to exist but will come into existence, till the Day of Resurrection." 

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 62, Number 135:

Narrated Jabir:

We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah's Apostle. 

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 9, Book 93, Number 506:

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:

That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured some females and intended to have sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they asked the Prophet about coitus interrupt us. The Prophet said, "It is better that you should not do it, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection." Qaza'a said, "I heard Abu Sa'id saying that the Prophet said, 'No soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it." 

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 62, Number 136:

Narrated Jabir:
We used to practice coitus interruptus while the Quran was being revealed.

Jabir added:
We used to practice coitus interruptus during the lifetime of Allah's Apostle while the Quran was being Revealed. 

Does the above hadis mean that the foot soldiers of Islam were spilling their seed outside the interior of their women victims when the Holy Qur'an was being revealed to Muhammad? How fantastic; just imagine for a while, the recitation of the Holy Scripture and the spilling of seed! What a great combination. This may even beat the chanting of Kamasutra verses hands down! 

Here are few more of those gems of ahadith

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3371:

Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa'id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): O Abu Sa'id, did you hear Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) mentioning al-'azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi'l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing 'azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid-conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah's Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3373:  

Abu Sa'id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported:

We took women captives, and we wanted to do 'azl with them. We then asked Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) about it, and he said to us: Verily you do it, verily you do it, verily you do it, but the soul which has to be born until the Day of judgment must be born 

It is also interesting to note that everyone was in the business of withdrawing their penis just before ejaculation 

Malik's Muwatta Book 29, Number 29.32.96:  

Yahya related to me from Malik from Abu'n-Nadr, the mawla of Umar ibn Ubaydullah from Amir ibn Sad ibn Abi Waqqas from his father that he used to practise coitus interruptus. 

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 11, Number 2166:

Narrated AbuSa'id al-Khudri:
A man said: Apostle of Allah, I have a slave-girl and I withdraw the penis from her (while having intercourse), and I dislike that she becomes pregnant. I intend (by intercourse) what the men intend by it. The Jews say that withdrawing the penis (azl) is burying the living girls on a small scale. He (the Prophet) said: The Jews told a lie. If Allah intends to create it, you cannot turn it away. 

The ahadith quoted above clearly proves that the spilling ones seed was the main method to avoid unwanted pregnancy amongst the captured concubines and slave-girls of early Muslims. 

However, the following hadis tells us that coitus interruption is not permitted with ones own wife. The seed must be sown inside the vagina of one's own wife.Without her permission, you cannot spill your seed outside her. A woman's vagina is indeed a sowing field! 

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3365:

This hadith has been reported on the authority of Jabir through another chain of transmitters, but in the hadith transmitted on the authority of Zuhri there is an addition (of these words):" If he likes he may (have intercourse) being on the back or in front of her, but it should be through one opening (vagina).

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3364:

Jabir (b. Abdullah) (Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Jews used to say that when one comes to one's wife through the vagina, but being on her back, and she becomes pregnant, the child has a squint. So the verse came down:" Your wives are your ti'Ith; go then unto your tilth, as you may desire."

Malik's Muwatta Book 34, Number 4210:

Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud:

The Prophet of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) disliked ten things: Yellow colouring, meaning khaluq, dyeing grey hair, trailing the lower garment, wearing a gold signet-ring, a woman decking herself before people who are not within the prohibited degrees, throwing dice, using spells except with the Mu'awwidhatan, wearing amulets, withdrawing the penis before the semen is discharged, in the case of a woman who is wife or not a wife, and having intercourse with a woman who is suckling a child; but he did not declare them to be prohibited.

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3377:

Abu Sa'id al-Khudri (Allah be pleased with him) reported that mention was made of 'azl in the presence of Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) whereupon he said: Why do you practise it? They said: There is a man whose wife has to suckle the child, and if that person has a sexual intercourse with her (she may conceive) which he does not like, and there is another person who has a slave-girl and he has a sexual intercourse with her, but he does not like her to have conception so that she may not become Umm Walad, whereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: There is no harm if you do not do that, for that (the birth of the child) is something pre- ordained. Ibn 'Aun said: I made a mention of this hadith to Hasan, and he said: By Allah, (it seems) as if there is upbraiding in it (for 'azl).

 

Group sex or sex orgies? Oh, My! 

In stag movies we often watch one man copulating with many women (or vice versa) at the same time or at short intervals. This is one of the greatest attractions of these 'smut,' that is, sex orgies either in groups or on one to one basis but with multiple partners. This is a very popular feature in pornographic movies, because almost all of us will never experience such sexual ecstasies, no matter how much we desire. Therefore, we are greatly attracted to satisfy our secret fantasies through watching those incredible feats. How we wished we could be the actors! Did this thought ever cross the mind of our Prophet? Tauba! Tauba! Nauzubillah! This is outrageously blasphemous, a garden variety Islamists will surely say. Now, please read the following ahadith and imagine for yourself the sex orgy, holy style. Imagine that you have many wives, between nine to twenty of them. Now imagine further that your most favourite wife decorates you to have sex with other women. If this is not sex orgy, then I wonder what is it? Please remember that during this orgy time, Muhammad (pbuh) had at least nine wives at his harem 

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 1, Book 5, Number 270:

Narrated Muhammad bin Al-Muntathir:

on the authority of his father that he had asked 'Aisha about the saying of Ibn 'Umar(i.e. he did not like to be a Muhrim while the smell of scent was still coming from his body). 'Aisha said, "I scented Allah's Apostle and he went round (had sexual intercourse with) all his wives, and in the morning he was Muhrim (after taking a bath)." 

Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3445:

Abu Bakr b. 'Abd al-Rahman reported that when Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) married Umm Salama and he visited her, and when he intended to come out, she caught hold of his cloth. Whereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: If you so desire, I can extend the time (of my stay) with you, but then I shall have to calculate the time (that I stay with you and shall have to spend the same time with other wives). For the virgin woman, (her husband has to stay with her) for a week, and for the woman previously married it is three days.

That, having sex orgy was a divine sanction, can be verified from the writings of Imam Ghazali. On the matter of having sex with multiple partners, he writes (ref.7, p.368):

It has been narrated in a gharib Tradition that the messenger of God said, "I have complained to Gabriel that I would like more strength when having intercourse with my wives, and he instructed me to eat harisa, " then you should know that he had nine wives, and he was obliged to satisfy them all, and that no one was permitted to marry them after his death, or even if he divorced them; his request for strength was therefore for this, and not for enjoyment.

I would like to end this section with this 'extraordinary' hadis; just imagine how much 'seed' was used to be spilled in a single night!!

Sahih Bukhari:Volume 7, Book 62, Number 6:

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet I used to go round (have sexual relations with) all his wives in one night, and he had nine wives.

Women's semen is yellow?

In youthful days most men and women have dreams of sex. The men have semen discharge (just like a normal ejaculation) that is termed nocturnal emission. Women too, experience sexual orgasm in dreams but there is no seminal discharge from her vagina as they do not produce any sperm. Even Muhammad's favourite wife, Aisha knew this fact, for, she herself was a woman. However, Muhammad (pbuh) was totally unaware of this scientific truth and thought that women, too, have nocturnal discharges when they experience sexual orgasms in their dreams. He could have probably seen some yellow stain on women's clothing after her period was over and wrongfully thought that to be her sperm. When Aisha wanted to correct him, he simply admonished Aisha and forced his erroneous belief on her. If any woman were to read these ahadith she will simply wonder whether there is anything wrong with her genitalis or not!

Sahih Muslim Book 3, Number 0608:

Anas b. Malik reported that Umm Sulaim narrated it that she asked the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) about a woman who sees in a dream what a man sees (sexual dream). The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon bi m) said: In case a woman sees that, she must take a bath. Umm Sulaim said: I was bashful on account of that and said: Does it happen ? Upon this the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Yes (it does happen), otherwise how can (a child) resemble her ? Man's discharge (i.e. sperm) is thick and white and the discharge of woman is thin and yellow; so the resemblance comes from the one whose genes prevail or dominate. 

Sahih Muslim Book 3, Number 0610:

Umm Salama reported: Umm Sulaim went to the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) and said: Apostle of Allah, Allah is not ashamed of the truth. Is bathing necessary for a woman when she has a sexual dream? Upon this the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Yes, when she sees the liquid (vaginal secretion). Umm Salama said : Messenger of Allah, does a woman have sexual dream ? He (the Holy Prophet) said: Let your hand be covered with dust, in what way does her child resemble her ?

 

Backside/Anal Sex

I would not hide the fact that one of my favourite pastimes is to read ahadith. I love to read and re-read hadis all of them. The more I read ahadith the more I understand Islam and its Prophet, Muhammad (pbuh).To my mind, ahadith contain the true picture of a good and devout Muslim. When I started reading ahadith, I expected to find only the religious/holy/spiritual/jihadi matters. But I was dumbfounded when I discovered such marvellous erotic contents in these core scriptures of Islam. It will not be wrong to comment that many ahadith can easily pass as manuals of sexual actions, and most importantly, details on dos and don'ts in sex. Some ahadith can even beat the world's first pornography book, Kamasutra, to say the least. Many hadith can easily pass up as sort of 'Sahi Pornography,' a la Bedouin or even better, the Islamic style. Here, I am citing only a few samples. Please spend a few years reading all the six Sahi ahadith. I am sure you will not regret at what you may discover. 

Ahadith tells us a great deal about the sexual practices of the Arab Bedouins of those days. We find that the style of copulation between various tribes varied a lot. The manner by which a Jewish man used to have sex with his woman was distinctly different from his counterpart of the Bedouins and also with the city and rural folks. We find that the desert Bedouins were more innovative in their sex positions, styles, etc. The style varied even among the ansars, muhajirins and other Arabs. The Jews were more accustomed to the missionary position while the muhajirins (Meccan Arabs who migrated to Medina) used to have sex with their wives in various positions, the most favourite being the backside style. When these muhajirs started this style with the ansari women, they (the women) were quite displeased and annoyed with them because many of these ruffian muhajirs did not even hesitate to resort to anal sex, because those muhajirs were sex starved as most of them came with their prophet without women and were hungry for sex like wolves. Thus, whenever they had the chance of sleeping with any woman, they would simply ravish her and do despicable sexual acts with them.Soon, this matter reached the ear of Muhammad through many ansari women. Without much delay, a divine decree came down from Allah forbidding those Meccan hungry wolves from doing anal. However, the 'doggy' style was retained, though many ansari women were not that happy with this position. Here are a few hadith that will definitely keep you amused for quite some time, I am sure. 

Sunaan Abu Dawud: Book 11, Number 2159:

Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas:

Ibn Umar misunderstood (the Qur'anic verse, "So come to your tilth however you will")--may Allah forgive him. The fact is that this clan of the Ansar, who were idolaters, lived in the company of the Jews who were the people of the Book. They (the Ansar) accepted their superiority over themselves in respect of knowledge, and they followed most of their actions. The people of the Book (i.e. the Jews) used to have intercourse with their women on one side alone (i.e. lying on their backs). This was the most concealing position for (the vagina of) the women. This clan of the Ansar adopted this practice from them. But this tribe of the Quraysh used to uncover their women completely, and seek pleasure with them from in front and behind and laying them on their backs.

When the muhajirun (the immigrants) came to Medina, a man married a woman of the Ansar. He began to do the same kind of action with her, but she disliked it, and said to him: We were approached on one side (i.e. lying on the back); do it so, otherwise keep away from me. This matter of theirs spread widely, and it reached the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him).

So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur'anic verse: "Your wives are a tilth to you, so come to your tilth however you will," i.e. from in front, from behind or lying on the back. But this verse meant the place of the delivery of the child, i.e. the vagina. 

Sahih Muslim: Book 008, Number 3364:

Jabir (b. Abdullah) (Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Jews used to say that when one comes to one's wife through the vagina, but being on her back, and she becomes pregnant, the child has a squint. So the verse came down:" Your wives are your ti'Ith; go then unto your tilth, as you may desire." 

Sahih Muslim: Book 008, Number 3365:

This hadith has been reported on the authority of Jabir through another chain of transmitters, but in the hadith transmitted on the authority of Zuhri there is an addition (of these words):" If he likes he may (have intercourse) being on the back or in front of her, but it should be through one opening (vagina)." 

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 6, Book 60, Number 51:

Narrated Jabir:

Jews used to say: "If one has sexual intercourse with his wife from the back, then she will deliver a squint-eyed child." So this Verse was revealed:--

"Your wives are a tilth unto you; so go to your tilth when or how you will." (2.223) 

Sunaan Abu Dawud: Book 12, Number 2212:

Narrated Urwah:

Khawlah was the wife of Aws ibn as-Samit; he was a man immensely given to sexual intercourse. When his desire for intercourse was intensified, he made his wife like his mother's back. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down Qur'anic verses relating to expiation for zihar. 

Sunaan Abu Dawud: Book 12, Number 2214:

Narrated Ikrimah:

A man made his wife like the back of his mother. He then had intercourse with her before he atoned for it. He came to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and informed him of this matter. He asked (him): What moved you to the action you have committed? He replied: I saw the whiteness of her shins in moon light. He said: Keep away from her until you expiate for your deed. 

Sunaan Abu Dawud: Book 11, Number 2157:

Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: He who has intercourse with his wife through her anus is accursed.

Sunaan Abu Dawud: Book 29, Number 3895:

Narrated by Abu Hurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: If anyone resorts to a diviner and believes in what he says (according) to the version of Musa), or has intercourse with his wife (according to the agreed version) when she is menstruating, or has intercourse with his wife through her anus, he has nothing to do with what has been sent down to Muhammad (peace_be_upon_him) - according to the version of Musaddad.
