Did prophet Muhammad breach his own rules?

The prophet would pray facing towards the Bed when Ayesha would be in the bed

Volume 1, Book 9, Number 486 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha
Do you make us (women) equal to dogs and donkeys? While I used to lie in my bed, the Prophet would come and pray facing the middle of the bed. I used to consider it not good to stand in front of him in his prayers. So I used to slip away slowly and quietly from the foot of the bed till I got out of my guilt.

Another hadith from Aisha (RA) clarifies this more, citing that people were wrong when they used to refer to women passing in front of prayer make the prayer annuled.

Volume 1, Book 9, Number 490 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha
The things which annul the prayers were mentioned before me. They said, “Prayer is annulled by a dog, a donkey and a woman (if they pass in front of the praying people).” I said, “You have made us (i.e. women) dogs. I saw the Prophet praying while I used to lie in my bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I would slip away. for I disliked to face him.”

The prophet would push Ayesha legs to prostrate because there was not enough room

Ayesha (RA) was this the prophet in his last 9 years or so. During this time he probably did not live in a tiny house. Why would he pray so close to her so she he had to push her feet. Why she would rather stand somewhere and let me pray. Why the prophet did not go with that approach.

Volume 1, Book 9, Number 498 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha
It is not good that you people have made us (women) equal to dogs and donkeys. No doubt I saw Allah’s Apostle praying while I used to lie between him and the Qibla and when he wanted to prostrate, he pushed my legs and I withdrew them.

The prophet would read Quran when leaning on Aisha (RA) lap

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 296 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha
The Prophet used to lean on my lap and recite Qur’an while I was in menses.

This btw also means the prophet could read

The prophet took shower with his wife Aish(RA) during menses. Even in Aitikaf, she washed her head. Is this something he could do on his own? What’s the logic

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 298 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha
The Prophet and I used to take a bath from a single pot while we were Junub. During the menses, he used to order me to put on an Izar (dress worn below the waist) and used to fondle me. While in Itikaf, he used to bring his head near me and I would wash it while I used to be in my periods (menses).

The prophet would founle his wife during mesese

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 299 :
Narrated by ‘Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Aswad
(on the authority of his father) ‘Aisha said: “Whenever Allah’s Apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he used to order her to put on an Izar and start fondling her.” ‘Aisha added, “None of you could control his sexual desires as the Prophet could.”

Prophet said longer period are because of blood vessels, not period bloods

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 303 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha
Fatima bint Abi Hubaish said to Allah’s Apostle, “O Allah’s Apostle! I do not become clean (from bleeding). Shall I give up my prayers?” Allah’s Apostle replied: “No, because it is from a blood vessel and not the menses. So when the real menses begins give up your prayers and when it (the period) has finished wash the blood off your body (take a bath) and offer your prayers.”

The prophet would kiss his wives when fasting

and perhaps took bath together naked in fasting as well?

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 319 :
Narrated by Zainab bint Abi Salama
Um-Salama said, “I got my menses while I was lying with the Prophet under a woolen sheet. So I slipped away, took the clothes for menses and put them on. Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Have you got your menses?’ I replied, ‘Yes.’ Then he called me and took me with him under the woolen sheet.” Um Salama further said, “The Prophet used to kiss me while he was fasting. The Prophet and I used to take the bath of Janaba from a single pot.”

Can Menstruation be false? It is from blood vessel and not real menstruation

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 324 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha
(the wife of the Prophet) Um Habiba got bleeding in between the periods for seven years. She asked Allah’s Apostle about it. He ordered her to take a bath (after the termination of actual periods) and added that it was (from) a blood vessel. So she used to take a bath for every prayer.

Ummal Mominin Maimona, during menses would sit with the prophet when he would pray in mosque?


For what reason?

Volume 1, Book 6, Number 329 :
Narrated by Maimuna
(the wife of the Prophet) During my menses, I never prayed, but used to sit on the mat beside the mosque of Allah’s Apostle. He used to offer the prayer on his sheet and in prostration some of his clothes used to touch me.”
