Not surprisingly Islam presents an incredibly low view of women; And if you are not an Islamic woman it has even a lower view of you than that.
Women in Islam are forced, to cover themselves; this is not voluntary but obligatory, compelled by men in charge of them. Surah 24:31; “And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband’s fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! Turn ye all together towards Allah, that ye may attain Bliss.”
Surah 33:59 also commands, “O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their bodies (i.e., Screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
Women in Islam are not allowed to show their hair, dress in a stylish feminine way, enjoy music, dance, they must stay at home, not talk to men, eat pork, or drink alcohol. Not allowed to question or criticize Islam, befriend non-Muslims, but they must pray five times a day fast for a month and give their husband sex anytime he desires it. If a wife does not give her husband sex when he wants it, he is allowed to beat on her.
Surah 2: 223 says, “Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth (have sexual relations with your wives in any manner as long as it is in the vagina and not in the anus), when or how you will, and send (good deeds, or ask Allah to bestow upon you pious offspring) before you for your own selves. And fear Allah and know that you are to meet Him (in the Hereafter) and give good tidings to the believers (O Muhammad).”
And because many women are circumcised, they do not enjoy sex like a man.
Surah 4:34 reads, “Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore, the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband’s) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For Allah is Most High, great (above you all) “
And who decides what beating your wife lightly means. Blows how many, bruises how severe; the irate husband decides. With four wives and allowed to have as many concubines as a man wishes, why beat upon any of your wives for sex. The Quran says that one man can marry four women and have sex with female captives and slave girls. Since when is sex outside of marriage not adultery, and pimping sex with one of your slave girls not prostitution? But again, the wisdom of Allah is that women are lower than men, and human rights should not get in the way of their civil right (cf. Surah 4:3, 24, 34; 23:1-6; 33:50; 70: 22-30; Sahih al-Bukhari 5825).
Islam does not give women equal rights as men. In an Islamic court of law, a woman’s testimony is equal only to half of that of a man. And this inequality we are told is due to the deficiency of a woman’s mind. Mohammed said, “I was shown the Hellfire and that the majority of its dwellers are women.” (Abu Sa’id Khudri 2658; Sahih Muslim 142; 241-132-79).
Yet in Islam Mohammed’s behavior is said to be a good example to follow. “Indeed, in the Messenger of Allah you are told you have a good example to follow for him who hopes for the meeting with Allah and the last day.” Does this mean you have the moral right to marry nine-year-old girls who still play with dolls? Does this mean that Islamists are allowed to take their sons-in-law wife from him simply because he desires to have sex with her? Does this mean you have the right to beat on your wife as you decide the amount of pain which is enough. The excuse is given that this was the culture of the seventh century, and such things were accepted. If true they should not have been accepted by the world’s greatest prophet for prophets were not victims of their culture. Also, if such lewd practices were accepted by Allah as Mohammed, is his messenger. Is not such pimping rampant in Egypt, Indonesia, Turkey… to this very day. Could you imagine for a moment Jesus Christ living like Mohammed and people saying, that it was the custom of the time, he was a victim of his time. How unbecoming, unthinkable, unimaginable, ludicrous, insidious, bizarre…
How ironic that it was a woman, Mohammed’s first wife Khadījah, who encouraged him to believe his revelations thus beginning Islam. And it was a Jewish woman name Zaynab bint Al-Harith who ended his life by poisoning him for having wiped out her family.
After reading for many weeks the track record of Islam regarding human rights, freedom of conscience, the almost zero contribution to modern day science, the overwhelming poverty and ignorance of the countries where it is dominant, the false narrative of the Quran that it has never been changed and that Mohammed is a perfect example to follow especially on how to treat your wife; I washed my hands of it all.
It is no wonder that thousands of Muslims honest and courageous enough to check out the false claims of their Imams are leaving it every day. It is no wonder that thousands flocking to Christian countries and turning to Christ as their savior from sin making them infinitely freer and more prosperous than ever.
John 3: 16-17 applies to the eight billion people of the world, from every nation, tongue and tribe, class, and culture. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
