Narrated Sa'id bin Al-Musaiyab:
Mu'awiya came to Medina for the last time and delivered a sermon. He took out a tuft of hair and said, "I thought that none used to do this (i.e. use false hair) except Jews. The Prophet labelled such practice, (i.e. the use of false hair), as cheating.
1) When Mohammad (may peace be upon him) was giving business advice, and said no cheating, did he mean not to use wigs?
2) If using a wig is cheating, then what about dying one's hair?
a) Wouldnt that also be considered cheating?
"Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 72, Number 786: Narrated Abu Huraira :The Prophet said, "Jews and Christians do not dye their hair so you should do the opposite of what they do. ""
b) Would that make Mohammad (may peace be upon him) a cheater?
3) If Jews and Christians dont use wigs, does this mean that Muslims should wear wigs, even if it means they would be considered cheaters?

Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 55, Number 607:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "On the night of my Ascension to Heaven, I saw (the prophet) Moses who was a thin person with lank hair, looking like one of the men of the tribe of Shanua; and I saw Jesus who was of average height with red face as if he had just come out of a bathroom. And I resemble prophet Abraham more than any of his offspring does. Then I was given two cups, one containing milk and the other wine. Gabriel said, 'Drink whichever you like.' I took the milk and drank it. Gabriel said, 'You have accepted what is natural, (True Religion i.e. Islam) and if you had taken the wine, your followers would have gone astray.' "
When last discussed about the night journey, the question asked was whether the Holy Prophet Moses and Allah were making fun of Prophet Mohammad (may peace be upon him)http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/05/moses-and-allah-making-fun-of-mohammad.htmlNow, the Holy Prophet Mohammad discusses how Jesus had a red face, as if he had just come out of the bathroom.
1) If Jesus did just come out of the bathroom, and that is why his face was red, which way did he face when he went to the bathroom?http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/06/one-must-not-face-qibla-in-taking-dump.html
a) Did he face the Qibla or not face the Qibla?
b) Why was the Holy Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) so concerned about bathroom habits, and what people looked like after they came out of them?
2) With regards to: "Gabriel said, 'You have accepted what is natural, (True Religion i.e. Islam) and if you had taken the wine, your followers would have gone astray.' "
a) The point of this passage seems to be a direct contradiction as to why Jesus, during his last supper, said the cup of wine is his blood.
i) The reason for Jesus drinking the cup of wine is grounded in Tawrat (Torah) Prophecy:
The symbol of a cup represents a measure or portion, and blood signifies suffering and death. Blood is the life of the body, but when it is poured out, death occurs (see Leviticus 17:11). The Father gave Jesus a cup of suffering to drink, requiring Him to be the sacrificial Lamb of atonement for sin and to pour out His sinless blood through a torturous death; for only the shed blood of Jesus can cleanse and make permanent atonement for all sin (see I John 1:7).
Jesus cried out in Gethsemane, "Abba [Daddy], Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt" (Mark 14:36). Later, Jesus said to Peter, "Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?" (John 18:11). Jesus submitted Himself to His Father's will and drank the dark and terrible cup of wrath for our sin. "For he [the Father] hath made him [Jesus] to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him" (II Corinthians 5:21).
More on this from http://www.christcenteredmall.com/teachings/the-lords-supper.htm
b) Did Prophet Mohammad (may peace be upon him) say this little story about choosing milk as the natural thing, as a way to fight Christians?
i) Afterall, Mohammad was taught by a Christian named Jabr, and it was very easy for Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) to twist Christian parables as he saw fit. http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/12/mohammads-christmas-special_7190.html
ii) Mohammad (may peace be upon him) had a propensity for bastardizing other Christian parables:
c) Why did Mohammad (peace be upon him) hate Christian doctrine so much? http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/09/muslims-should-do-opposite-of-what-jews.html
i) Is it because he had a devil attached to him?

Narrated Usama bin Zaid:
The Prophet said, "After me I have not left any affliction more harmful to men than women."
1) No argument here... How can anyone argue with Mohammad (may peace be upon him) that women are the worst affliction to men. AIDS has nothing on women...
a) Maybe the backs of women will provide a cure for men, just as the back of fly wings give cure to diseases carried by flies. http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/07/dr-mohammad.html
2) Not sure what this part means - "After me"
a) Does this mean that Mohammad (may peace be upon him) was the greatest affliction, followed by women?
i) This makes sense: http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/12/2008-year-in-review.html
b) Or does this mean that the one thing Mohammad (may peace be upon him) could not cure was the affliction of women.
3) I will go with the latter interpretation.
a) Why didn't the Holy Prophet (May peace be upon him) prescribe cures like camel urine for curing the affliction called women? http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/07/dr-mohammad-part-ii.html
4) How do Muslim women feel that they are the greatest affliction to Muslim men?

More information can be gotten from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abu_Hurairah
He was a poor man who filled his stomach with Mohammad's (may peace be upon him) words. Yet, most early Muslims thought he was an idiot who wasted time narrating narrations, and thought he did nothing that was productive:
Volume 3, Book 39, Number 540:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The people say that Abu Huraira narrates too many narrations. In fact Allah knows whether I say the truth or not. They also ask, "Why do the emigrants and the Ansar not narrate as he does?" In fact, my emigrant brethren were busy trading in the markets, and my Ansar brethren were busy with their properties. I was a poor man keeping the company of Allah's Apostle and was satisfied with what filled my stomach. So, I used to be present while they (i.e. the emigrants and the Ansar) were absent, and I used to remember while they forgot (the Hadith). One day the Prophet said, "Whoever spreads his sheet till I finish this statement of mine and then gathers it on his chest, will never forget anything of my statement." So, I spread my covering sheet which was the only garment I had, till the Prophet finished his statement and then I gathered it over my chest. By Him Who had sent him (i.e. Allah's Apostle) with the truth, since then I did not forget even a single word of that statement of his, until this day of mine. By Allah, but for two verses in Allah's Book, I would never have related any narration (from the Prophet). (These two verses are): "Verily! Those who conceal the clear signs and the guidance which we have sent down .....(up to) the Merciful.' (2.159-160)
In fact, the first Muslims also thought he was something much more than an idiot, but a guinea pig.
Volume 5, Book 59, Number 545:
Aban bin Said came to the Prophet and greeted him. Abu Huraira said, "O Allah's Apostle! This (Aban) is the murderer of the Ibn Qauqal." (On hearing that), Aban said to Abu Huraira, "How strange your saying is! You, a guinea pig, descending from Qadum Dan, blaming me for (killing) a person whom Allah favored (with martyrdom) with my hand, and whom He forbade to degrade me with his hand.'
So what great hadiths did Abu Huraira provide us with?
1) That she-monkeys were capable of sexual intercourse and that Abu Huraira used to go and stone them; http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/04/she-monkeys-were-capable-of-illegal.html
2) Got easily fooled by Satan, who likd to recite Quran surahs: http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/09/satan-reciting-quran-surahs.html
3) Discussed a man converting to Islam after a wolf hustled him out of one of his sheep http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/06/guy-converts-to-islam-after-wolf-ate_23.html
4) Prophet Mohammad said that Animal Dung is the food of Jinn http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/05/animal-dung-is-food-of-jinns.html
5) And ofcourse, the story about Moses (Musa) beating the crap out of a stone which stole its clothes. http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/04/moses-once-execessively-beat-stone.html
These hadiths are just the tip of the iceberg of silliness. We know that Abu Huraira was not well liked because he would go around following Mohammad (may peace be upon him) and narrating his stories. The first Muslims thought Huraira was an unprodutive fool.
1) Was Abu Huraira productive in bringing forth these hadiths, and were the first Muslims right about Abu Huraira?
2) If Abu Huraira was not productive, did he become unproductive because he started to listen to the words of Prohet Mohammad (may peace be upon him) too much?
a) Have Muslim countries taken queue from Abu Huraira, becoming unproductive (comparison between India and Pakistan: http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/06/mohammad-forbid-muslims-to-play-chess.html)
3) Why are many of Abu Huraira's hadiths so nonsensical?
a) Did Islam make him blind to common sense and logic?
b) Or was he that way before?
i) If he was that way before, how can the most trusted hadith scholars trust him for a very significant amount of hadiths and traditions giving rise to the Sunna?
ii) Did Islam make hadith writers like Bukhari and Muslim blind to common sense and logic?
iii) Or did the hadith writers use Abu Huraira as a tool for making fun of Prophet Mohammad (may peace be upon him), since it is apparent none of the first Muslims respected Abu Huraira much, in a subverted way to show that the hadith writers did not believe Mohammad (may peace be upon him) was a Prophet? http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/12/2008-year-in-review.html

i) Evidenced by his sound business advice http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/05/when-you-bargain-say-no-cheating.html
Based upon this Hadith, and in the traditional make of "The Mohalel," Islamic movie directors have come up with a heartwarming movie "Enjoy Her"
Upon marrying, moving to warm and sunny Dushanbe, Tajikistan, and procuring jobs at different newspaper publications, journalists Abu (Gang Hye Jung) and Amina Al Rahim (Somia EL Khoshab) take the next logical step: enjoying Dushanbe's thriving night life.

Narrated Jundub bin Sufyan:
Once Allah's Apostle became sick and could not offer his night prayer (Tahajjud) for two or three nights. Then a lady (the wife of Abu Lahab) came and said, "O Muhammad! I think that your Satan has forsaken you, for I have not seen him with you for two or three nights!" On that Allah revealed:
'By the fore-noon, and by the night when it darkens, your Lord (O Muhammad) has neither forsaken you, nor hated you.' (93.1-3)
Noble Quran: 93: The Morning Hours
93:1 By the morning hours
93:2 And by the night when it is stillest,
93:3 Thy Lord hath not forsaken thee nor doth He hate thee,
1) Does this mean that Satan was Mohammad's (may peace be upon him) Lord?
a) Why would Allah, Mohammad's god, reveal a surah that he has not foresaken him when Abu Lahab's wife asked if Satan had foresaken him?
b) Does Allah admit that he is Satan?
c) Why would the Holy Prophet Mohammad (may peace be upon him) so readily admit and reveal a quran surah that answers people that his Satan has not foresaken him?
d) Does Mohammad get Satan's and angels mixed up? Afterall, a Satan was continuously living with him http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/06/aisha-jealous-of-mohammed-womanizer.html
2) Why would Bukhari include this hadith?
a) Was it to purposely show that Mohammad (may peace be upon him) sought help from Satan, and that even his Uncle Abu Lahab's wiwfe knew that Mohammad (may peace be upon him) was in cahoots with the devil?
b) Because Bukhari knew that only a man who did so many bad things could have Satan as a Lord? (i.e. - Mohammad broke everyone of the 10 Commandments - (http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2009/06/mohammad-and-10-commandments.html) How is he Holy?) http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/10/suicidal-mohammad.html

The Prophet drew a square and then drew a line in the middle of it and let it extend outside the square and then drew several small lines attached to that central line, and said, "This is the human being, and this, (the square) in his lease of life, encircles him from all sides (or has encircled him), and this (line), which is outside (the square), is his hope, and these small lines are the calamities and troubles (which may befall him), and if one misses him, an-other will snap (i.e. overtake) him, and if the other misses him, a third will snap (i.e. overtake) him."
This picture is an illustration of what the Holy Prophet tried to articulate about the virtues of life. There is a big square, which is one's lease on life, a big line of hope, and many little lines, that represent the calamities of life. If one misses you, another will overtake you!Coincidentally enough, Mohammad's vision of life was in fact turned into the popular video game "Space Invaders":
As can be seen from this diagram, many of the Holy Prophet's (May peace be upon him) visions have come through in this video game scenario. The aliens are like little lines of calamities, where if one misses you, another will overtake you. The big green boxes are lines of hope, and finally, the shooting icon is "one's lease on life."
1)So what does this all mean? Was this Prophet Mohammad's first vision of the future? Was this the Prophet's first and only prophecy that has come true? Does this justify Prophet Mohammad's part of prophecy with his dreams http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/09/how-to-be-prophet-part-i.html; or the hairy mole on his back which is his seal of prophethood?
Narrated As-Sa'ib: My aunt took me to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! My nephew is- ill." The Prophet touched my head with his hand and invoked Allah to bless me. He then performed ablution and I drank of the remaining water of his ablution and then stood behind his back and saw "Khatam An-Nubuwwa" (The Seal of Prophethood) between his shoulders like a button of a tent. Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. VII, p 390. Number 574
2) What was Prophet Mohammad's (May peace be upon him) vision all about?
a) How is this religious?
b) It seems extremely common sensical - yet not really helpful.
i) Is the person who said "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" just as prophetic as Prophet Mohammad (may peace be upon him)?
ii) How about others who came up with similar analogies on life?
3) Does this provide Muslim Ummah with the opportunity to sue the creators of "Space Invaders" from stealing the Holy Prophet's idea of a good video game?
a) Was the Holy Prophet a gamer at heart?
b) How would he react if he saw that his drawing had turned into a video game?
