Judgement of Sad bin Muadh over the defeated Banu Quraiza–a reply to Bakar Udhin
After several days the Jewish tribes surrendered in terms that they should be left to be judged by a former Jew by the name of SAAD BIN MUADH TO JUDGE THEM ON THEIR TREACHERY
Mr Bakar Udhin ... Secondly, it is not clear from Islamic sources whether it were Banu Qurayza or their allies, the tribe of “Aws”, who agreed to Sad bin Muadh being the judge. The sahih hadith in Bukhari below points to this fact:
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: Some people (i.e. the Jews of Bani bin quraiza) agreed to accept the verdict of Sad bin Muadh so the Prophet sent for him (i.e. Sad bin Muadh). He came riding a donkey, and when he approached the Mosque, the Prophet said, "Get up for the best amongst you." or said, "Get up for your chief." Then the Prophet said, "O Sad! These people have agreed to accept your verdict." Sad said, "I judge that their warriors should be killed and their children and women should be taken as captives." The Prophet said, "You have given a judgment similar to Allah's Judgment (or the King's judgment)."
In the USC English translation, "Jews of Banu Qurayza" has been given in brackets when mentioning that the people agreed to accept Sad bin Muadh’s verdict. But the original Sahih Bukhari hadith in Arabic does not have this as this is a pure conjecture. So, it is most probably the tribe of Aus were who agreed to accept the verdict of Sa’d, not the Banu Qurayza. It does not make any sense for a subjugated people who's freedom had been taken away at this point in time in this ancient arabic-culture in front of Muahammad of all people, the Banu Qurayza who were on their knees at the time to be given a choice in selecting their judge lol. So, the evidence we have available is against the Muhammaden claim that the surrendered Banu Qurayza tribe were given a choice in the case of adjudicator.
Moreover, even if I accepts the your arguments that the Banu Qurayza were given a choice in selecting their judge, it does not let Muhammad off the hook. A careful analysis of the sahih hadiths on this account reveals Saad bin Muadh was just echoing Muhammad’s intention as his verdict. Soon after Saad bin Muad gave his verdict, Muhammad rushed to applaud him stating Saad's judged was in accordance with the judgement of Allah. This means that even if Saad was the one who made this procalmation, Muhammad said that this is how Allah AND Muhammad too judges. Therefore, Making Saad's judgement equal with that of Allah and Muhammad. Again from Sahih Bukhari:
Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: The people of (Banu) quraiza agreed to accept the verdict of Sad bin Muadh. So the Prophet sent for Saad, and the latter came (riding) a donkey and when he approached the Mosque, the Prophet said to the Ansar, "Get up for your chief or for the best among you." Then the Prophet said (to Sad)." These have agreed to accept your verdict." Sad said, "Kill their (men) warriors and take their offspring as captives, "On that the Prophet said, "You have judged according to Allah's Judgment," or said, "according to the King's judgment."
This is evil in my opinion to do to people when the war is over.
