Did prophet mohammad really die with an erection?
I tell you before hand the following verses are taken from respected Islamic hadiths:
Sahih bukari 5:59:730
On the 8th of June, 632 AD Aisha watched Muhammad finally die, slumped on her bosom.
Narrated Aisha:....In front of him there was a jug or a tin,(The sub-narrator,'Umar is in doubt as to which was right) containing water. He started dipping his hand in the water and rubbing his face with it, he said, "None has the right to be worshipped except Allah. Death has its agonies." He then lifted his hands (towards the sky) and started saying, "With the highest companion," till he expired and his hand dropped down.
Sahih Bukhari 5:59:730
....'Aisha added: He died on the day of my usual turn at my house. Allah took him unto Him while his head was between my chest and my neck and his saliva was mixed with my saliva.
Sahih Bukhari 7:62:144
 Post-Mortem Erections
A Post-mortem erection (technically a priapism- a medical condition in which the erect sexual organ does not return to its flaccid state within four hours has been observed in the corpses of human males.
Muhammad and his Eternal Erection
Abu al-Fida (1273 – 1331 AD) was a Muslim geographer and historian, and according to Edward Gibbon's (1723 - 1794 AD) "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.":
Sibi robur ad generationem, quantum triginta viri habent, inesse jactaret; ita ut unicâ horâ posset undecim feminis satisfacere, ut ex Arabum libris refert Stus Petrus Paschasius, c. 2 (Maracci, Prodromus Alcoran, p. iv. p. 55. See likewise Observations de Belon, l. iii. c. 10, fol. 179, recto). Al Jannabi (Gagmer, tom. iii. p. 487) records his own testimony that he surpassed all men in conjugal vigour; and Abulfeda mentions the exclamation of Ali, who washed his body after his death,“O propheta, certe penis tuus cælum versus erectus est”(in Vit. Mohammed. p. 140).
Edward Gibbon's "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" Vol. 9 - Footnote 175
In English, Ali ibn Abi Ṭalib, the fourth rightly guided Caliph of Islam (and also Muhammad's son-in-law and cousin) had exclaimed upon seeing Muhammad's lifeless corpse: "O prophet, thy penis is erect unto the sky!"
Unsurprisingly, this is one "miracle of Islam" that you will not find proudly displayed or posted in the many Islamic da‘wah (preaching) websites or forums.
Umar ibn al-Khattab, the second rightly guided Caliph of Islam, initially refused to believe Muhammad had died, and who could blame him when the prophet displayed such strong signs of life?
 The Attempted Cover-up
Muhammad was washed ready for burial, but unlike others, he was washed with his cloths remaining on his body. Once cleaned, they attempted to cover him with triple shrouds, possibly indicating an embarrassing bulge which they then tried to even-out with extra layers of clothings. The last thing they would have desired was for all to know that their prophet remained erect unto his death, and beyond.
Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas: The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) was shrouded in three garments made in Najran: two garments and one shirt in which he died.
Abu Dawud 20:3147
Apparently, their efforts were futile. Neither the excessive layers of clothing nor the reported delay in burial helped the situation, and he was buried quietly in the house in which he died, near the Mosque of the Prophet in Medina.
One wonders; if Muhammad was the last prophet of Allah, who according to Islamic beliefs is the creator of the world, how hard (no pun intended) would it have been for this creator to have prevented Muhammad from being poisoned and his penis becoming erect at the time of his death? Did the last prophet of Allah, the pinnacle (npi) of humanity, not deserve a respectful death?
You really want to incite more hatred don't you?
Typical ignorant American.
I would doubt th veracity of that statement, and suggest that if we were all a little more tolerant of the beliefs of others then the world would be a much better and peaceful place.
