Mass Deportation of Non-Muslims from the Arabian Peninsula

Towards the later years of his life, Muhammad declared that he would expel all Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and leave only Muslims there. He had already started this mass deportation programme by expelling all Jews from Medina - including the tribes of Banu Mustaliq, Banu Qanuqa and Banu Nadir. He also mass-murdered the entire male population of Banu Quraiza (except boys who did not start growing pubic hair yet) for breaking a treaty to help him in war. Even two or three people trying to assassinate him was enough reason for him to expel an entire tribe, as was the case with Banu Nadir (read Muhammad's earliest biographies - Ibn Ishaq and Al-Tabari).

What is even more remarkable is that the Christians in the Arabian Peninsula caused no trouble for Muhammad and the Muslims. Yet he wanted to mass-deport them, something that his companion Umar fulfilled later.

Let us look at the authentic hadiths that show this:

1) Sahih Muslim 19:4366

http://sunnah.com/muslim/32/75
It has been narrated by 'Umar b. al-Khattib that he heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say:
I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.

2) Jami at Tirmidhi 3:19:1607

http://sunnah.com/tirmidhi/21/70
Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah : "Umar bin Al-Khattab informed me that he heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say: 'I will expel the Jews and the Christians from the Arabian Peninsula, and I will not leave anyone in it except a Muslim."

3) Sahih Muslim 19:4364

http://sunnah.com/muslim/32/73
It has been narrated on the authority of Ibn Umar that the Jews of Banu Nadir and Banu Quraiza fought against the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) who expelled Banu Nadir, and allowed Quraiza to stay on, and granted favour to them until they too fought against him. Then he killed their men, and distributed their women, children and properties among the Muslims, except that some of them had joined the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) who granted them security. They embraced Islam. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) turned out all the Jews of Medina. Banu Qainuqa' (the tribe of 'Abdullah b. Salim) and the Jews of Banu Haritha and every other Jew who was in Medina.

4) Sahih Muslim 19:4363

http://sunnah.com/muslim/32/72
It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira who said:

We were (sitting) in the mosque when the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) came to us and said: (Let us) go to the Jews. We went out with him until we came to them. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) stood up and called out to them (saying): O ye assembly of Jews, accept Islam (and) you will be safe. They said: Abu'l-Qasim, you have communicated (God's Message to us). The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: I want this (i. e. you should admit that God's Message has been communicated to you), accept Islam and you would be safe. They said: Abu'l-Qasim, you have communicated (Allah's Message). The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: I want this... - He said to them (the same words) the third time (and on getting the same reply) he added: You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I wish that I should expel you from this land. Those of you who have any property with them should sell it, otherwise they should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle (and they may have to go away leaving everything behind).

Hadith #4 shows Muhammad repeatedly asking Jews to embrace Islam and when they rejected, he proceeded on to expel them. Hadith #3 shows that he expelled every single Jew from Medina. This proves that the real reason for expulsion was their religion.

Muhammad forced the Jews to pay him a tax of half of their total produce if they wanted to stay in Khaibar until his close companion Umar expelled them. Umar completed the expulsion of Christians from Hijaz (Mecca plus Medina) and Jews from the Arabian Peninsula (Mecca, Medina, Yemen, Al-Yamama and Al-Arj combined) as we can see below:

5) Sahih al Bukhari 3:39:531

http://sunnah.com/bukhari/41/19
Narrated Ibn `Umar:
`Umar expelled the Jews and the Christians from Hijaz. When Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) had conquered Khaibar, he wanted to expel the Jews from it as its land became the property of Allah, His Apostle, and the Muslims. Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) intended to expel the Jews but they requested him to let them stay there on the condition that they would do the labor and get half of the fruits. Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) told them, "We will let you stay on thus condition, as long as we wish." So, they (i.e. Jews) kept on living there until `Umar forced them to go towards Taima' and Ariha'.

6) Sahih al Bukhari 4:52:288

http://sunnah.com/bukhari/56/259
Narrated Sa`id bin Jubair:
Ibn `Abbas said, "Thursday! What (great thing) took place on Thursday!" Then he started weeping till his tears wetted the gravels of the ground . Then he said, "On Thursday the illness of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) was aggravated and he said, "Fetch me writing materials so that I may have something written to you after which you will never go astray." The people (present there) differed in this matter and people should not differ before a prophet. They said, "Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) is seriously sick.' The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Let me alone, as the state in which I am now, is better than what you are calling me for." The Prophet (ﷺ) on his death-bed, gave three orders saying, "Expel the pagans from the Arabian Peninsula, respect and give gifts to the foreign delegates as you have seen me dealing with them." I forgot the third (order)" (Ya'qub bin Muhammad said, "I asked Al-Mughira bin `Abdur-Rahman about the Arabian Peninsula and he said, 'It comprises Mecca, Medina, Al-Yama-ma and Yemen." Ya'qub added, "And Al-Arj, the beginning of Tihama.")

I would like to remind the Muslims that they would feel really horrible if someone expelled them from their homes as retaliation to crimes committed by a group of Muslims. A little empathy would be enough to understand how the Christians and those Jews who did not do any aggression against Muslims felt when they were deported from their homes by Muhammad and his men. You can find occasions where Muhammad was tolerant to non Muslims, but that will not negate these cruelties that he committed. It is thus clear that Muhammad became extremely intolerant towards non-Muslims towards his later years and is a very bad example for humanity.

  1. And you said Jews fought Muslims so why they stay among us regarding Mecca and Madina are a holy Islamic cities and just Muslims allowed to live in it and enter it because the nonmuslims was worshipping another gods at the holy Ka'aba and those who hurt the Muslims so they dismissed except those have agreement with Muslims
    And don't say the Christian didn't hurt Muslims they tried to kill prophet Muhammed and was cooperating with the Muslims enemies but the dismissing was just from holy cities not from the Islamic state as whole and those who have agreement didn't dismiss away
    And nonmuslims till now living in Islamic lands peacefully and they don't mention this story because they know how the previous Jews and Christians in that time how they hurtted Muslims
    Third don't try to act as victim the Spain Muslims without any sins killed by Christians in the most ugly and horrible way and they dismissed the Jews and Muslims away also the Christian in Russia dismissed the Ibadian and Charkasean Muslims away from Russia and the same occurred in Bosnia and Hungaria and Greek and many countries of east Europe without any war or sin just because they're Muslims and the same the Jews did in Palestine
    The Muslims stand the Jews and Christians for 10 years and they fought against Muslims many times so they dismissed away within the same state and not for who have agreement with Muslims
    while Christians and Jews did without any reason if you say they don't represent Christianity then you should return to your bible and read it again read the battles and laws of Israel

    1. Yeah so? Islam is a false religion, it is not a true revelation. Why would God suddenly start giving the illiterate second hand camel dealer Mohamed prophecy? There is no reason to believe he even had a revelation except what he made up at the time. Islam is a load of rubbish. It is acult of the moongod allah not the true God of Jacob. Please refrain form being a stupid muslim and come into the light of Jesus the true son of the almighty. Mohamed? he was just a lowly arab nobody with a bad attitude. So therefore his followers deserve to be dismissed from everywhere. In fact they need to be dismissed off the face of the earth totally. We are not going to submit to your crappy little cult so no matter how much you idiots carry on with your allah u akbar rubbish you can rest assured if you keep this violence and madness up you will be wiped off the face of the earth completely

    2. Ziyad Baban ' What a liar you are. Have you read your evil Quran ?Sura 5:51 '' O' Believers take neither Jews not Christians for your friends and protectors , for they are friends and protectors of one another. Whoever of you seeks their friendship and supports them shall become one of their numbers .Allah doesn't guide the wrong doers '' Also read a book by Bat Ye'or '' The Decline Of The Eastern Christianity Under Islam '' The problem with you muslims is that even if the truth hits you in the face you will deny it as you are doing here, despite all the historical evidence .You Muslims have been fooling the Infidels/kafirs for too long, but to-day we have all the excess to you evil scriptures and literature via internet. Thanks to Infidel's technology.

  2. There is almost a chicken and egg question about who started the violence, force conversions and expulsions or ethnic cleansing. As sad as these acts are as an example, they are in the distant past, but do they continue to inspire violence and intolerance today?

    From my reading of world events, the answer is yes. The Jews of the Middle East, except Israel, have fled for their lives. The Christian communities, especially the Egyptian Coptics are under continuous assault and almost dhimmitude. I personally experienced the systematic disinformation, lying and censureship from the Cairo Press while the Muslim Brotherhood had power.

    An article had stated that there was no oppression of Copts, as almost no one had left registered to leave Egypt. US immigration statistics that showed that almost 50,000 had entered the US from Egypt the previous year and I posted the finding and link to the evidence. It was promptly deleted and I reposted a second time, which was also promptly deleted. My lesson is that history, facts and truth are a minor obstacle to a vicious system.

    The Jews of Israel have learned how to survive in the face of Islam. They often let their walls and weapons talk for them. Somewhat sad and unfair for the Palestinians, but they live at the front line of an empire that has murdered almost three hundred million of non-muslims to take over as much as the world as it has now. More people in the West are recognizing that Muslim immigration leads to agitation and violence as the new comers attempt to impose their totalitarian views on their hosts. It is sad that our kindness, generosity and tolerance can lead us to the point where we will shut the door upon humans in need and contemplate registering, supervising and removing the offending group, en mass.

    For those other places that were reconquered by the Christians, like Spain and Portugal, it teaches the West how hard it is to remove an invader people from their lands, taking a century of hard fought cruelty to accomplish their goal.

    For the Hindus of India, I hope they rebuild their temples to clearly take back their lands. If they could do it in a much kinder way than the Muslims tore them down to build their mosques, it would be a great act of tolerance and reconciliation. We live in the present and the current roll call of violence tells me that peaceful coexistence is unlikely.

    The continuous state of security or low level warfare is expensive and exhausting for the West, but we should study our history, learn foreign languages, especially Arabic, Russian, Mandarin and Cantonese, and keep our guard up in response to the slow expansion and consolidation of the Muslim world. Heaven help anyone who reawakens the American Giant, and fills him with a terrible resolve.

  3. Ziyad Baban, if you are the least bit honest, give us REFERENCES that show Christians doing ANY harm to Muslims during Muhammad's time.

    And you say Jews "fought" Muslims. What actually happened was isolated incidents of violence by some Jews, some of them trying to murder Muhammad. And how did he react? By expelling ALL JEWS from their homeland.

    1. Rahul Balakrishnan .You are right And don't forget that the predominant people of the Arabian peninsular were the Jews before mo was ever born. Same as the whole of Afghanistan was Buddhist and Hindus before the barbarian Muslims came from the west as invaders.

  4. And you say "Mecca and Medina are the holy cities of Muslims". So what? The Jews were also living there. It belonged to them as much as anyone else. Noone has the right to expel an entire community from a region saying "Oh this is our holy place". How would you feel if some new religious movement picked up strength tomorrow and claimed your hometown as their holy place and ordered to expel ALL MUSLIMS from there?

  5. Jerusalem is the holiest city of Jews... Provide objective and independent evidences please:

    1) that the prophet ever set foot in Jerusalem in his entire lifetime

    2) tell me when the al-Aqsa mosque was started AND completed please, and completed by who? And why was it build right on top of the holy sanctuary of the High Temple? Why didn't they build the mosque elsewhere?

    3) give me one good reason wh ordering the slaughter of the Medina Jews and expulsion of the rest was the act of a tolerant and holy man and role model?
