Mr Sohail: Read the following hadiths and then decide if Mohammed raped them or had halal sex with them. Even better, consider your wife sisters and daughters in the position of these unfortunate women then decide if you still consider your prophet's character to be exemplary.

Muslim Bk19 No.4345

Among captives was a woman from Banu Fazara. She was wearing a leather coat. With her was her daughter who was one of the prettiest girls in Arabia. Abu Bakr bestowed that girl upon me as a booty. So we arrived in Medina. I had not yet disrobed her when the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) met me in the street and said: Give me that girl, O Salama. I said: Messenger of Allah, she has fascinated me. I had not yet disrobed her. When on the next day. the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) ag;tin met me in the street, he said: O Salama, give me that girl, may God bless your father. I said: She is for you. Messenger of Allah! By Allah. I have not yet disrobed her.
