Saudi Arabia publicly beheads a woman in Mecca

If you say they aren't authoritative, then my bad, nonetheless:

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: That during the battle with Bani Al-Mustaliq they (Muslims) captured some females and intended to have sexual relation with them without impregnating them. So they asked the Prophet (ﷺ) about coitus interruptus. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "It is better that you should not do it, for Allah has written whom He is going to create till the Day of Resurrection." Qaza'a said, "I heard Abu Said saying that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, 'No soul is ordained to be created but Allah will create it."


Narrated Kuraib: the freed slave of Ibn `Abbas, that Maimuna bint Al-Harith told him that she manumitted a slave-girl without taking the permission of the Prophet. On the day when it was her turn to be with the Prophet, she said, "Do you know, O Allah's Messenger (ﷺ), that I have manumitted my slave-girl?" He said, "Have you really?" She replied in the affirmative. He said, "You would have got more reward if you had given her (i.e. the slave-girl) to one of your maternal uncles."

I'm left perpetually perplexed on the issue of people's apologetics of Mohammad's life and personality. What kind of last prophet of God and champion of human (women's) rights, when asked on the matter of raping one's female sex slaves, does not say "don't rape slaves, release them", but says "don't do coitus interuptus". Or saying it's better to perpetuate slavery, of females again, in this case, than to free slaves, as shows the second example. What kind of apologetics could possibly work on the myriads of such morally abhorrent examples about him. Your posts are like somebody trying to sell me the awesomeness of Mohammad, but the guy was a warlord, and plunderer, on par with Julius Caesar or Genghis Khan, not a person on par with Jesus or Buddha. I just don't see what the exaltation is all about, for somebody who should be seen as nothing but a lowlife, scum, from a modern perspective. And this modern perspective is all that matters, since Mohammad isn't a historical personality like Genghis, but is a vastly religious one, whom people venerate and think should be emulated. People are getting killed over defending this horrible person's image, as if he had one worth defending. Islam seems to have a serious problem at its core.
