Sex and Violence
Chapter Five: Sex After Death
2nd Edition: January 15, 2017
Muhammad was a Pedophile Sex Addict
man's weakness for sex, Islam has presented an unusual theory
of carnal gratification, which is most beguiling, blissful and
buffeting. It holds that sexual urge does not perish with death
because the man is Muslim, he will be resurrected and given a
place in paradise where he will enjoy the choicest sex day and
night. Again, sensual pleasures are reserved for man only, and
houris i.e. the most beautiful virgins, who inhabit paradise,
are totally submissive to their male master. This view represents
the Islamic sexual psychology for being consistent with the Prophetic
stand point of "Dominance-urge versus Feminine Charm"
because here woman surrenders herself completely to man along
with her physical, emotional and artful beguilements. Thus, pleasing
man, becomes her only pleasure.
If the reader
can remember that Adam (the Biblical genitor of humankind) defied
God to gain the favour of his woman (Eve), it is not difficult
to understand that a virile man shall live and die for Islam,
which promises the choicest sex-after-death in the form of paradise,
dwelt in by the most beautiful damsels and the prettiest boys.
Here is a short description of paradise, which Islam presents
proudly and solemnly:
is the similitude of Paradise,
which the Godfearing have been promised:
Therein are rivers of water unstaling,
rivers of milk unchanging in flavour,
and rivers of wine - a delight to the drinkers,
rivers too, of honey purified;
and therein for them is every fruit "
(Muhammad XLVII: 15)
Here the "similitude"
does not mean a "metaphorical description" as the Muslim
scholars pretend, but a true statement of paradise. The following
quotations from the Koran will leave the reader in no doubt to
them (the Muslims) is reserved a definite
provision, fruit and a great honour in the Gardens of
Bliss reclining upon couches arranged face to face,
a cup from a fountain being passed round
to them, white, a pleasure to the drinkers .....
and with them wide-eyed maidens flexing
their glances as if they were slightly
concealed pearls." ( The Rangers 40: 45 )
have preferred flat-chested women, the Arabs are fond of rising
bosoms. So, in keeping with the Arab taste, the Koran declares:
for the God-fearing
awaits a place of security,
gardens and vineyards
and maidens with swelling bosoms."
( The Tidings 30 )
of paradise is made more impelling when wine is made a part of
the pious shall be in bliss,
upon couches gazing:
You find in their faces the shining bliss
as they are offered to drink of wine sealed,
whose seal is musk and whose mixture
is Tasnim, a fountain at which to drink
those brought nigh."
( The Stinters 20: 25 )
illustration of the point under discussion, I may refer to Hadith
Tirmzi, volume two (p 35-40) which gives details of houris, the
ever-young virgins of paradise:
houri is a most beautiful young woman with a transparent body.
The marrow of her bones is visible like the interior lines of
pearls and rubies. She looks like a red wine in a white glass.
is of white colour, and free from the routine physical disabilities
of an ordinary woman such as menstruation, menopause, urinal and
offal discharge, child-bearing, and the related pollution.
3. She is a woman characterized by modesty and flexing glances; she
never looks at any man except her husband, and feels grateful
for being the wife of her husband.
4. A houri is a young woman, free from odium and animosity. Besides,
she knows the meaning of love and has the ability to put it into
houri is an immortal woman, who does not age. She speaks softly
and does not raise voice at her man; she is always reconciled
with him. Having been brought up in luxury, she is a luxury herself.
6. A houri is a girl of tender age, having large upright breasts.
Houris dwell in palaces of splendid surroundings.
Now, add to
this description of houris, what Mishkat, volume three says on
7. If a houri looks down from her abode in heaven onto the earth,
the whole distance shall be filled with light and fragrance
8. A houri's face is more radiant than a mirror, and one can see
one's image in her cheek. The marrow of her shins is visible to
9. Every man who enters paradise shall be given seventy-two houris;
no matter at what age he had died, when he enters paradise, he
will become a thirty-year-old, and he will not age any further.
volume 2 states on page 138:
A man in paradise
shall be given virility equal to that of one hundred men!
be noted that men who are so potent, shall not be inclined to
anything except love-making. This is the reason that, according
to Islam, sexual gratification is the ultimate goal of life, and
thus, the behaviour of Muslims becomes sexually oriented.
that Islam does not forget the fact that hetrosexuality is not
the complete source of carnal gratification because some people
have different tastes. So, it adds a stunning dimension to the
paradisiac pleasures. The Koran says:
. provided them radiancy and delight
and recompensed them for their (Muslim's) patience
With a Garden, and silk; therein they shall see neither sun nor
bitter cold; near them shall be its shades, and its clusters
hung meekly down, and there shall be passed around them
vessels of silver, and large drinking cups of crystal,
crystal of silver measure very exactly.
And therein they shall be given to
drink a cup whose ingredient is ginger;
therein a spring whose name is Salsabil
Immortal youths shall go about them;
When thou seest them, thou supposest them
dispersed pearls, When you see them you see the divine
happiness and a great kingdom.
Upon them shall be clothing of silk
and brocade; they are embellished with
bracelets of silver, and their Lord shall
give them to drink a pure draught.
(Man 76: 10-25)
description of the unageing lads is also found in Mount LII: 20:
they hand therein a cup one to another
Wherein is no idle talk, no cause of sin,
and there go around youths, their own, as
if they were concealed pearls."
It is quite
clear that besides the most beautiful virgins, there are also
boys in paradise, who
1. are as pretty as pearls,
2. are ever-young because they do not age,
3. wear clothes of silk, and
4. are embellished with silver bracelets.
What is the
purpose of these unusually attractive boys, who dwell in paradise,
which is constructed in such a way that every brick of gold is
followed by a brick of silver; instead of mud or cement, saffron
is used to hold them together; even its pebbles are diamonds and
rubies. He who enters paradise, shall be free from grief; he will
live there for ever, remain eternally young and will never die.
of intoxicating youths in such a luxurious environment must have
some unusual purpose though the Muslim scholars claim that they
are ordinary servants, who render their services to the lucky
But what kind
of services? An ordinary does not have to be ever-young, pretty-like-pearls,
used to drinking wine (i.e. pure draught) and habitually wearing
silken dresses and silver bracelets?
cannot be ordinary servants. What are they? If I come straight
to the point, the Muslims will charge me with blasphemy and call
me an "Insultor of the Prophet" but I am nothing of
the kind. I hold the Prophet in high regard and think of him as
a great national hero, who bestowed an unusually high dignity
on the Arabs. In fact, I wish he was born in India to raise its
stature compatible with the natural bounties that this land possessses.
I may, therefore,
give a short sketch of the sexual fascination that "boys"
have displayed throughout history:
also known as sexual inversion, means sexual attraction of a person
to one of the same sex i.e. man to man and woman to woman. The
latter is called lesbianism for its association with the Aegean
island of Lesbos.
is, however, concerned with male homosexuality only. Those who
practice it, think of it as a delight but its opponents find it
disgusting. The writer is neither its practitioner nor its advocate,
yet it is a real issue because it has influenced the course of
history, and therefore, requires a frank discussion whether one
likes it or not. This is why the modern legal thinking holds it
as no crime if the act takes place in private between consenting
Is it a genetic
condition or an acquired habit? Though one cannot give an exclusive
opinion on the subject, one can refer to certain facts, leaving
the final conclusion to the reader:
The huge systematic
surveys of homosexuality that A. C. Kinsey conducted in 1948 and
1953 showed that 37 per cent of U.S. males had indulged in this
activity. Again, the American anthropologist, C. S. Ford, and
psychologist, F. A. Bench, studied primitive societies during
1951. In 76 communities, it was found that 64 per cent accepted
it as a normal practice.
has been observed in certain animals such as apes; cows in heat
are known to mount other cows, and so are cats, dogs, rabbits,
lions and horses.
it is more prevalent, and is especially noticeable in societies
where sex-segregation is observed. The boys are stimulated by
the boys and resort to this practice for sexual gratification.
This may not be desirable owing to its effects on mental and physical
development of boys before reaching adolescence. On the other
hand, girls' passions are unduly suppressed to make them pious,
pure and perfect. They are taught and subjected to a discipline
of high morality. Thus value of virginity is raised sky-high,
and men want to marry virgins only, even though they may have
lost their own chastity during the early stage of their life.
It may tame the sexual outlook of women but it certainly distorts
the emotional view of boys, leading to the growth of a male-dominant
society, which develops such vices as dowry and legal disparities
regarding inheritance and matrimonial rights of the spouses.
A law of Physics
states that dissimilar poles attract and similar poles repel.
This rule applies, not only to inanimate objects but also humans,
and its operation starts right from babyhood. Male infants are
inclined towards their mothers, and females to their fathers for
this reason, and not owing to any unresolved sexual emotions.
Of course, both genders are born with a sexual blue print but
it takes many years to mature; until this happens carnal drive
does not count for anything, and requires no resolution. If this
were not true, seeing babes copulate would be a common spectacle.
However, exceptions are always there: some children may mature
earlier and possess varying degrees of sexual intensity.
homosexuality, one may say that the said law of Physics breaks
down, and as a result, the similars begin to attract.
is resolved when we realise that virility is a part of the dominance-urge:
more virile a person, the greater the desire to have a harem or
indulge in promiscuity: lek behaviour, which impels animals to
possess numerous females for proving their dominance, establishes
this fact firmly. Physically, man is no different from other primates:
his urge of dominance is even greater: men like Genghis Khan and
Adolf Hitler, who would slaughter a million men just to look superior,
support this point of view.
One may add
that homosexuality, an age-old experience, is an epiphenomenon,
which has always existed besides hetrosexuality. It defies the
physical law of the opposites, yet it is governed by the enormity
of sexual drive the same way as the brute might of atomic force
equally applies to the negative and positive charges irrespective
of their dissimilarity.
is one of compelling drives of man; he may commit any crime or
sin to satisfy it: the Biblical story, which shows that Adam rebelled
against God to please Eve, seeks to illustrate this point. Man's
greatest drive is what I have termed as dominance-urge; sexual
drive, being a part of it, is likely to transgress the normal
patterns of behaviour for its gratification.
is one difference between man's and animal's behaviour; he wants
to justify his action on moral or spiritual ground, no matter
how fake, fictitious or fraudulent it may be. He uses both religion
(God) and reason for this purpose to relieve his conscience from
the burden of guilt. A persistent desire to satisfy conscience
shows that humanity is destined to achieve moral perfection, and
the day is approaching when all political and economic barriers,
which stand in its way, shall be broken down.
for giving homosexuality religious sanctity is really interesting.
Though Greece is not the origin of sexual inversion, it is certainly
the Greek ingenuity, which lent it the spiritual grace:
to a Greek legend, Ganymede, the son of Tros, King of Troy, was
so beautiful that Zeus, the king of gods, became enamoured of
him. Disguised as an eagle, he swooped down on this young lad
affectionately, and carried him off to be his cup bearer i.e.,
to serve the God intoxicating drinks.
legend has been frank and honest about the interpretation of this
incident. It is not like the Muslim scholars, who pretend that
G(h)ilman i.e., the ever-young, bride-like boys of paradise are
there to serve drinks to the faithful, and nothing else. On the
contrary, the Greeks believed that Zeus, the Chief God, had a
homosexual passion for Ganymede. In Rome, he (Ganymede) appears
as Catamitus i.e., Catamite, which means a young lad kept for
sexual purposes. In pursuance of the Greek tradition, this practice
became so rife amongst the Romans that some historians believe
it to be the cause of their moral ruination, which eventually
led to the decline of their political grandeur.
seems to have been popularised by Socrates, the great Greek philosopher."
Plato speaks of Socrates and Alcibiades as lovers, and describes
the philosopher "in chase of the fair youth."
about Socrates, Will Durant adds, "he was not above giving
advice to homosexuals and hetairai on how to attract lovers."
opinion about the greatness of Socrates, Will Durant says: "Or
as Plato put it, with moving simplicity, 'he was truly the wisest,
and justest, and best of all the men whom I have ever known."'
From the above,
it is clear that homosexuality was not looked down upon in Greece,
otherwise, Plato would not have showered such praise on Socrates,
who had a homosexual relationship with Alcibiades.
is a highly respected historian of the 20th century. His statement
is confirmed by an account in the "International Library
of Famous Literature, Volume 2 (P. 693): He (Alcibiades) was brought
up in the house of Pericles, and lived on terms of intimacy with
not only a great philosopher but also a soldier of high stature.
"At Potidaea he saved both the life and the arms of the young
Alcibiades, and gave up in the youth's favour his claim to the
prize of velour."
which denotes sexual relationship between an older man and a young
lad, seems to have been initiated by Socrates, who also happened
to be a mystic. Though mystical principles practiced throughout
the world are of Vedic origin, mysticism entered Persia through
Greece, and then returned to India as Sufism.
As the mystical
model, Socrates, had only one shabby garment, which he wore throughout
the year; he was fully reconciled with his poverty, and felt rich
without possessing anything at all. Bearing extreme hardships
was one of his great virtues. He could drink to his heart's content
without ever getting drunk. He had made himself immune to the
effects of cold and heat: when his fellow-soldiers "wrapped
themselves up carefully, and put fleeces under their feet (in
intolerably severe weather), Socrates went out only with the same
cloak on that he usually wore, and walked barefoot upon the ice.
He was also known for meditation from dawn to dusk, and whenever
he did it, he was fully absorbed in himself. "
When we look
into these Socratic qualities, it transpires that the Islamic
mysticism (tasawwaf) has been built around the Socratic model.
I have no doubt that the metaphoric eulogy of wine that the Muslim
Sufi saints habitually sing in their poetry, is a legacy of the
Socratic drinking habit, and so is their love of boys, poverty,
Stoic contentment and meditation.
an open book but Plato, who adopted his several views, has not
demonstrated his frankness in stating some of them. One of the
issues has come to be known as Platonic love, which emanates from
the Socratic discourses:
to Plato, man is composed of two part -eternal and mortal: the
former is termed as soul, which is divine, whereas the mortal
side being passionate and vegetative, is profane, because it has
been assigned to man by the inferior gods, though at the behest
of the supreme deity. When these appetitive passions are pursued,
release of soul from the body becomes difficult, and man suffers
from a very long cycle of reincarnations.
that the release of soul is possible through knowledge only; this
happens when mind is led by Eros, the Greek love-god (the Indian
Kama), also known as sexual desire, which is the source of affection,
leading to knowledge. However, all love is not productive because
it can lead in either direction - reason or passion, vice or virtue.
These divisions, he is said to have inherited from the prevailing
which is essentially homosexual, was encouraged by the excessive
Greek fear of over-population. It is for this reason that there
was only one household in a hundred that brought up more than
one girl; most daughters at birth were exposed to die. This caused
a shortage of women, accelerating the need for homosexuality.
the social influence, Plato was guided by his philosophical vision,
and did not support heterosexual love, whose purpose is procreation,
which leads to the imprisonment of soul in the body. He held that
people indulged in this kind of love because they wanted to live
through the memories of their children. But those who have creative
desire for soul, shun woman. Secretof spiritual begetting is,
therefore, love of man by man. In other words, love of the leads
to trouble but love of the similar gender guarantees immortality.
This is the way of releasing the mind (soul) from the grip of
the matter (body). Yet, he did not think that love between man
and man implied carnal intercourse. This is a deliberate ambiguity
because it evidently contradicts the function of Eros, which concerns
gratification of sexual desire.
then, Platonic love all about? It was a relationship between two
males - one called Erastes, the lover, and another Eromenos, the
beloved. Again, this relationship was between the socially equals,
and thus defied the universal law of love, which acknowledges
no barrier of caste, colour or creed. It is a philosophical attempt
to invent a new type of pederasty, which inflates erotic desire
but forbids sexual gratification in a vain hope to transform the
carnal excitement into imaginative and intellectual energy.
is simply absurd for being opposed to practical realities of life.
However, this theory holds that as a beloved looks a model of
beauty to the lover, he inspires love and reverence in the soul
of latter. Initially, it is Eros, the sexual desire, which stirs
the soul through the beauty of the youth (beloved); the beauty
of the boy as perceived by his lover, is reflected back, arousing
him (the youth), too. Thus, lover Eros (passion) evokes a counter-Eros,
which is a reflection of the inspired love. Therefore, Eros both
inspires and is inspired in turn. As a result, beauty of the lover
and the beloved becomes a mutual reflection in each other's soul,
leading them to march in tandem towards eternity. What a manipulation
of erotic love it is!
relationship between the two males assumes that the lover is a
teacher (as Socrates was) to the beloved, but as far as knowledge
is concerned, the latter is a student. The lover as a teacher
looks upward in his own right whereas the beloved looks up by
reflection, thus both climb the "ladder of love," but
the lover is always ahead of the beloved in search of eternity.
the originator of the above theory (modified by Plato) was the
lover of Alcibiades, who became a celebrated Athenian politician
and general. As a youth, he lived on terms of intimacy with Socrates
for a long time. Socrates, the great Greek philosopher was a man
of many virtues, and rose to become a mentor of some immortal
mystical traditions, still followed in the east. But the truth
is that he was tired on a charge of corrupting young boys, and
sentenced to death. His greatness is marked by his fearleshasness:
he did not escape from the prison when he was provided with such
an opportunity, he preferred to drink hemlock (poison) and left
this world as a brave man of integrity.
the Great, though a Macedonian, proved to be the ambassador of
the Greek culture, which had been imbued with homosexuality, having
an intoxicating Divine flavour. He was not only a rare military
genius but also possessed some great political and administrative
qualities. He fell in love with eastern manners; he wore eastern
dress and had two eastern queens, but his heterosexuality was
just a cover-up for the eastern politics. He was a homosexual
like the Greeks, whose culture he loved and practised. Hephaestion
and Bago are two of his well-known catamites. Through him, and
afterwards his generals, the Greek culture known as hellenism,
flourished in the Middle Eastern countries. It was given an extra
ictus by the fact that Alexander claimed to be a god and was acknowledged
and worshipped as such throughout his eastern dominious. The habits
of god are bound to have a quick and lasting influence on the
character of ordinary mortals. It penetrated the guts of the Persian
poetry so deeply that it has become living eroticism in the mystical
form of versification and has spread to all the Muslim countries
where the Persian language has flourished. .
peninsula was no exception. Not only the South worshipped female
deities connected with the Greek tradition but hellenism also
reached the North, the land of the Prophet Muhammad. We find the
name of Alexander, the Great, mentioned in the Koran as Dhool
will question thee (Muhammad) concerning Dhool Karnain. Say: I
will recite to you a mention of him ....."
to note that the name of Alexander the Great was not unheard of
in the Hijaz (the Prophet's country) because people were curious
to know more about him. Again, the Koran depicts Alexander, the
Great, as a righteous man to whom Allah spoke and also left the
making of vital decisions:
said, "O Dhool Karnain,
either thou shalt chastise them,
Or thou shalt take towards them
a way of kindness " (The Cave XVIII: 85)
It is quite
clear that the Koran has not condemned Alexander, the Great. Instead,
he has been displayed as a righteous man, whose judgement Allah
trusted and respected! Obviously, his homosexuality had no bearing
on piety. This fact is supported in the already quoted Mount LII:
20, which states:
they (boys) hand therein (paradise) a cup One to another wherein
is no idle talk, no cause of sin, and there go around youths,
own, as if they were concealed pearls."
describe two facts clearly:
Muslim men shall have "their own" boys who are pretty
like pearls, and
will be "no cause of sin;" it means that so liberal
shall be the laws of paradise that lasciviousness shall not count
as a sin.
interpretation of the above Koranic verse is correct and honest,
is corroborated by the facts of history. About the high society
of Arabia during its heyday, Professor Philip K. Hitti wrties
in his famous "History of the Arabs" (10th edition,
servants were almost all slaves recruited from non-Muslim peoples
and captured by force, taken prisoners in time of war or purchased
in time of peace The white slaves ( Mamluk ) were mainly Greeks
and Slavs, Armenaisn and Berbers. Certain slaves were eunuchs
(Khisvan) attached to the service of the harem. Others termed
Ghilman, who might also be eunuchs, were the recipients of special
favour from their masters, wore rich and attractive uniforms and
often beautified and perfumed their bodies in effeminate fashion.
We read that Ghilman in the reign of al-Rashid, but it was evidently
al-Amin who, following the Persian precedent, established in the
Arabic world the Ghilman institution for the practice of unnatural
sexual relations. A judge under al-Mamun used four hundred such
youths. Poets like abu-Nuiwas did not disdain to give public expression
to their perverted passions and to address amorous pieces of their
composition to beardless young boys."
facts conform to the highly erotic Koranic description of the
paradisiac boys, who are ever-young, pretty like pearls, dressed
in silk and brocades, and wear bracelets. Above all, like Ganymede
they serve wine in cups of crystal. These boys are not servants
as the Muslim scholars pretend because a servant can be old, ugly
and poorly dressed.
(Iranians) had acquired love of homosexuality from their conquering
master, Alexander the Great and his Greek soldiers. This practice
was made lawful among the Arabs by the Koranic description of
the beautiful boys: al-Rashid and al-Amin were prominent rulers
and leaders of the Muslim world, which treated them as the Model
of Behaviour. This is the reason that the Qazis (Muslim judges)
who were expected to live, and dispense justice according to the
principles of Islam, kept harems of boys unashamedly.
Not only history
testifies to what I have stated, the Koran and hadith (the sayings
and life precedents of the Prophet) allude to even greater sexual
freedom, and this is done through a maze of ambiguity and self-contradictions:
forbids anal intercourse with women. There are several hadiths
to this effect on page 89 of Mishkat' volume 2. One hadith says
that the man who sodomises his woman is accursed but another says:
women are your tillage. Come to your tillage from back or front
but avoid the ones who suffer miqad or menstruation."
means anus. The mullahs have deliberately tried to misinterpret
it by saying that Islam forbids anal intercourse with women. In
this hadith, it implies that a man must not use the back of his
woman during her monthly period, otherwise it is permitted.
Look at the
following hadith on page 87 of Mishkat, volume 2.
the Prophet said: "The Jews used to say when one sodomises
one's wife, the children are born with squinted eyes, but Allah
sent this verse which says: "Your wives are your tillage,
come to your tillage from any side you like."
For the satisfaction
of readers, I may add that the verse referred to in the above
quoted hadith is to be found in the Koran (The Cow, 2: 220).
explains how Islam exploits the psychological weakness of man
for sex, and prescribes Jehad as the sure way of getting into
paradise, the abode of the most luxurious sex. Yet it claims to
be the Divine code of enforcing virtue and forbidding vice!
which is a speciality of Islam, requires an investigation into
the concept of Jehad, which is fundamentally connected with carnal
delights. Next Page
