Prophet Muhammad could control his sexual desires

Secondly, this recommendation is directed to us men because we are weak and find difficulty in maintaining our sexual urges, unlike the Prophet (peace be upon him) whom Aisha said:

"None of you could control his sexual desires as the Prophet could."

Bukhari 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."

So since the Prophet (peace be upon him) could control himself, there was really no need for him to abstain.

Thirdly, this narration refutes Shamoun since it clarifies that Islam doesn't teach that one must avoid all physical contact with one's wife during menstruation.

In summary, Shamoun has failed to point out any inconsistencies in the Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) behavior.
