Women are Harmful to Men

This is another statement which all the scholars agree that Muhammad uttered against women. In part 7, p.22 of Sahih al-Bukhari, we read,

"The prophet said: ĎI have not left any affliction more harmful to men than women."í

The Imam al-Nawawi in his book, "Riyadh al-Salihin" (p. 110), reiterates that these words were spoken by Muhammad. Of course, Sikhism rejects such statements and disapproves of all these accusations against women.

"From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married. Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come. When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound. So why call her bad? From her, kings are born. From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all." --Guru Nanak Dev Jee

Lastly, we have to ask: If this was Muhammadís view of women, why then, did he possess so many wives, concubines and prisoners of war?
