Muhammad's Favorite Things

You can learn a lot about people by figuring out their favorite things.


In case you ever wanted to know what Muhammad's favorite things were, here you go:
The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, said: "I like not from worldly life but perfumes and women." (Ibn Sa'd, Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir, Volume 1, p. 469)

Aisha said: "The Prophet of Allah, may peace be upon him, liked three worldly objects—perfume, women and food. He obtained two and did not obtain one. He obtained women and perfumes but did not get food." (Ibn Sa'd, Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir, Volume 1, p. 469)

Salamah ibn Kuhayl said: "The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, did not obtain anything from worldly objects dearer to him than women and perfumes." (Ibn Sa'd, Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir, Volume 1, p. 469)

did you get the original tabary (only in arab it seems) or only the al-balami summary verion. Coz balami version is not really "hasan" as they said?

It's Ibn Sa'd, translated by S. Moinul Haq.

A womanizer, a sensualist and a glutton.

Please, don't hold those three things against Mohammed. After all, he LOVED beheading, handchopping and stonings!
