Muhammad's War on Lizards (Fun Islamic Fact #17)

In the seventh century, Muhammad declared war on lizards. Lizards would never be safe again.

Here’s the full text of the video:

Welcome to “Fun Islamic Facts,” where I share fun facts about Muhammad and the Qur’an, whenever jihadis go on a killing spree.

Do you like the adorable gecko from the Geico commercials? If so, you’re going to hell, because Muhammad hated lizards and ordered his followers to kill them.

Sunan Abu Dawud, Number 5262:

It was narrated from Amir bin Sa’d that his father said: “The Messenger of Allah enjoined killing geckos, and he called them noxious little creatures.”

Muhammad even said that Muslims will be rewarded in Paradise for killing geckos, with bonuses for efficiency.

Sunan Abu Dawud, Number 5263:

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Whoever kills a gecko with the first blow, he will have such and such of Hasanah (Hasanah here refers to good deeds for which you’ll be rewarded). Whoever kills it on the second blow, he will have such and such of Hasanah, less than the first. Whoever kills it on the third blow, he will have such and such of Hasanah, less than the second.’”

But geckos are fairly harmless creatures, and they help reduce the insect population, so we may be wondering why Muhammad would want them killed. Fortunately for us, the prophet of Islam explained his hatred for lizards.

Sahih al-Bukhari, Number 3359:

Narrated Umm Sharik: Allah’s Messenger ordered that house-lizards should be killed and said, “It (i.e., the house-lizard) blew (the fire) on Ibrahim (i.e., Abraham).”

The commentator adds a note for clarification:

“When Abraham was thrown into the fire, it is said, all the animals tried to extinguish the fire except the house-lizard which blew it.”

So, when Abraham was thrown into the fire (which never happened), various animals gathered around and tried to put out the fire. But lizards conspired to kill Abraham by blowing on the fire and making it hotter. Hence, lizards are under a death sentence, to be carried out by Muslims.

As for you Muslims who don’t believe in killing lizards for their attempted execution of Abraham, keep in mind that the prophet who delivered this revelation about lizards is the same prophet who delivered the Qur’an.

Interesting fact


stupid lizard lovers in the comments

Islam is extremely stupid.

Reminds me of Chairman Maos Campaign agains Sparows (and the Famine it caused).

This guy is a fraud, and if you follow him blindly then it will be you who are the losers. You can mock us, make rumours about us but surly indeed the ignorant are truly wrong and misguided.

I believe in islam and I know the story behind the lizards. I am absolutely sure of it and if you don’t believe you don’t have to laugh about it because there are enough facts about other religions that can be more llaughable. You shouldn’t deliver any kind of information before you learn and understand them yourself.

Why does moe hate one of Allah’s creations so much lol

Alll you talk about Is our prophet and makes videos insulting him and it’s making me suspicious :face_with_raised_eyebrow: I think you like him and adore our prophet cause this how your making your money by brain washing ppl. Damn your going deep David I think the debate with Muhammad hijab and shiek uthman really got to you huh :joy::joy:

:neutral_face: My Cat will go to heaven but not me.

wtf? it makes no sense

I’m muslim

Are you muslim

A bunch of racists in this comment section…

Jokes on you…Why are you showing fake stuff about Islam? I am a muslim. Muhammad(sm) did not tell us to kill any innocent creature. But some creatures are harmful. Mad dogs, big mice ( that cause harm to household stuff)and Muhammad (sm) told us to kill chameleons(unique species of lizard famous for changing its skin color. It does so to camouflage with its surrounding. Sometimes chameleons change their color when they are angry or fearful. To change its color, the chameleon adjusts a layer of specialized cells underlying its skin) because it causes a lot of deadly diseases. It poobs on food and it’s saliva can cause death… It’s not me it’s science!! May Allah give you proper knowledge and wisdom.:hugs::innocent:

Peace be upon him, the last prophet.

:100: True David when I was young Muslim friends used to kill lizard or grecko in one shot with stone.
Now I understand one fool fooled many in the form of Islam.
Islam could have killed like that.
