Killing women is apparently Allah's will, for Allah and his messenger know best

Among Muhammad's motley crew of assassins, he found many a volunteer, including a member of the victim's husband's tribe.  Ibn Ishaq tells us that this assassin "crept into her house that night."  The poetess had five children, one so young as to still be nursing, and which, in fact, was sleeping at her breast when the assassin came upon her.

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX (Catholic Online) - The Arab poetess and mother, 'Asma' bint Marwan, was another victim of Muhammad's intolerant wrath once he gained power in the town of Medina.   'Asma', a pagan woman married to Yazid ibn Zayd, was a poetess who lived in Mecca.  Upset with Muhammad's killing of Abu 'Afak, this Meccan poetess had the temerity to write a lampoon against Muhammad. 

Muhammad's early Muslim biographer Ibn Ishaq has preserved the poem for us, and, by modern standards, it seems rather innocuous, though alternative translations render it a bit more vulgar.

"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.
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?"

How dare this pretentious pagan poetess write to her townsmen blaming them for paying heed to a "stranger who is none of yours," one who was responsible for "the killing of your chiefs," i.e., for paying heed to Muhammad?

How dare she hope for a "man of pride who would attack him by surprise," and ruin the hopes of the Muslims, "those who expect aught from him?"

To a hypersensitive, priggish, self-aggrandizing moral monster, those words merit death to the utterer.  So naturally, when Muhammad heard the report about this poetess' words, Ibn Ishaq relates that Muhammad said, "Who will rid me of Marwan's daughter?"

Among Muhammad's motley crew of assassins, he found many a volunteer, including a member of the victim's husband's tribe.  Ibn Ishaq tells us that this assassin "crept into her house that night."  The poetess had five children, one so young as to still be nursing, and which, in fact, was sleeping at her breast when the assassin came upon her. 

The assassin of Islam removed the child (what great mercy!), drew his sword from its scabbard, "and plunged it into her, killing her in her sleep."  Allahu Akbar!  Oh the weary and ever-prevalent takbir which seems to be on the lips of the murderous, the assassins, the evil, the brutal, the vicious to justify their crimes, tribute to the great god of death who seems to go by the name of Allah!

(Maybe I speak too harshly?  No.  I do not apologize.  Whoever this Allah is that is invoked after an act of hatred and death, this Allah is not the Lord of Life, the Dominus vitae.)

Killing women is apparently Allah's will, for Allah and his messenger know best.  That's why Hassan ibn Thabit, a Muslim poet, could write the following enormities in the apologia of a poem that opposed itself to the murdered pagan poetess:

"She stirred up a man of glorious origin,
Noble in his going out and his coming in.
Before midnight he dyed her in her blood
And incurred no guilt thereby."

Incurred no guilty thereby?  Pray you morally obtuse Muslim poet, how?  Muhammad stands guilty of murder before the natural law, which is to say, he stands guilty before the law of God.  Since obedience to the natural law, which is the law of God, is essential for salvation, it would seem that Muhammad is objectively damned by the killing of this innocent mother who was giving suck to her child. 

But then again, perhaps his thoughts for 'Asma''s five children were the same as his thoughts for the children of her fellow townsman 'Uqba whom Muhammad also had killed:  "Hell could raise them!"

Imagine the absurdity that follows in the biographical material: Ibn Ishaq says the killing brought "conversions" among the Banu Khatma, a tribe at Mecca.  How many of the Banu Khatma learned to love Allah because an assassin killed a woman who was nursing her child while she slept?
 
Ibn Ishaq relates:

"[W]hen 'Umayr [the assassin] went to them [the Banu Khatma tribe] from the apostle he said, "I have killed Bint Marwan, O sons of Khatma.  Withstand me if you can; don't keep me waiting."  That was the first day that Islam became powerful among Banu Khatma; before that those who were Muslims concealed the fact."

Christians like to evangelize. They like to think that love conquers all, including souls.  Amor vincit omnia.  Muhammad's view is different.  As he is to have said in one hadith (Sahih al-Bukhari, 4.52.220), "I have been made victorious through terror."

Who would you rather come knocking on your door?  The Mormons or Jehovah Witnesses or the Muslim 'Umayr!

What was Muhammad's response to the murder he had ordered?  Of course, the response was how a perfect man ought to respond to the news that his order to murder someone has been fulfilled:

"In the morning when he ['Umayr] came to the apostle [Muhammad] and told him what he had done and he said, "You have helped God [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.""

No, Muhammad.  Two goats will not butt heads over the murder of 'Asma'.  Two goats, like two devils and their master Beelzebub, won't care one bit.  But the God who loved 'Asma', the woman who bore God's image, though she was pagan, the God whom you did not seem to know, will care.
