  1. There are several contradictions in the story compared with the authentic version, or, for that matter, even with the one depicted by Wikipedia. In these matters, it is necessary that the story be, ateast by and large, authentic.

    1. Thanks for your comment! This was narrated by Anwar al-Awlaki in one of his talks. It seems the authentically verified narrations do not have the amount of detail as in the story, which has been amalgamated from other secondary sources. Although it gives more details, I see no contradictions myself?

      Also, is there a reason this needs to be by and large authentic? The strictness in narrating seerah is less stringent than needed for shari’ah based purposes, and weaker narrations are often used to piece together the details.
