I have heard a rumor that Muhammad PBUH had killed some people during his conquests in Arabia. Can someone please confirm
or deny this? I would like to know because this is huge allegation to make and its a very, very important question.

How many people did the Prophet ever kill?


Ibn Taymiyyah said:

"…And bravery is defined by two things:

a) the strength and firmness of the heart in the face of fears, and
b) physical strength when fighting, such that one can kill with immense force and magnitude.

The first is the definition of bravery. As for the latter, it indicates physical strength and ability, and not everyone who possesses physical strength has strength of heart, and vice versa.

Because of this, you may find that it is said regarding a man who kills many people: 'He would do this if he had with him those who could guarantee his safety.' But, if he becomes scared, he is stricken with cowardice, and his heart becomes detached. And you would find the man with a firm heart who has not killed many people with his own hands firm in the face of fears, going forth in the face of hardships, and this is a characteristic that is required by the commanders, leaders, and forerunners of war, more so than the other, as the forerunner, if he is brave and firm at heart, will go forth and remain firm and will not be defeated, and his supporters will fight alongside him. If he was a coward and weak at heart, he will be humiliated, will not go forth, and will not remain firm, even if he is physically strong.

And the Prophet was the most complete in regards to this bravery that is appropriate for the commanders in war, and he did not kill with his hand anyone except Ubayy bin Khalaf. He killed him on the day of Uhud, and did not kill anyone else with his hand before or after this."

In Uhud Ubayy bin Khalaf, riding his horse, charged towards the Messenger of Allah. Some Muslims wanted to get in the way to protect the Messenger of Allah but he told them to move aside. The Messenger of Allah picked up a spear and threw it at Ubayy who was covered in iron armor from head to toe. Nothing appeared from him except his eyes and a small opening in his neck. The spear hit him right in the neck and he fell off his horse. Even though the spear only caused a minor bruise in his neck due to the protection of the armor, Ubayy rushed back screaming: “Muhammad has killed me!” The people of Quraish checked him and said we don’t find any major injury. You are fine!
He said: “Muhammad claimed he would kill me, therefore it must come to happen!
Ubayy latter died on his way back to Makkah.

Asalaamu Alaikum,

The Prophet(صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) killed someone who tried to charge at him on the battlefield with the intent to kill him.

Ubayy bin Khalaf did not die at the hands of Rasoolullah :saws:. He was striked on the shoulder, I think, by Rasoolullah's :saws: staff, but that didn't kill him. Ubayy bin Khalaf's shock was enormous just because of that one strike. He started mumbling "Muhammad has killed me, Muhammad has killed me", and left with the Quraish at the end of the way. Even after returning to Makkah, his muttering did not end. He kept saying the same thing over and over again like a mad man, and ultimately died in the same shock. The strike did not kill him, but left excruciating psychological impact which led to his demise.

If you really look at it, Rasoolullah :saws: has a clean slate. He, alhamdulillah, did not kill anyone in his lifetime, but he was a commander, and had to be a part of wars.
