Muhammad and His Wives

9/27/2012 A critical look at Mohammed’s relations with his wives Mumin Salih  Introduction Muslims are aware of Mohammed’s numerous marriages and of his Allah-given privileges to have more wives than the rest of them.

When is a death threat not taken seriously? When it’s from an Imam in the UK to his daughter

The Place of Women in Islam

There are two men in Islam that are indisputably the greatest in the annals of this religion.  They are Imam al Ghazzali and Jalaleddin Rumi, both Persians.  Let us see what they thought of women. Ghazzali is so highly revered amongst the majority of Muslim clerics that he is called Hojjatul Islam,” proof of Islam”. [...]

Women Being Honored in Islam

Nearly 1,000 Pakistani women were victims of honour killings last year… but true number could be far higher

Nearly 1,000 women and girls in Pakistan were murdered in 2011 in honour killings, worrying figures have revealed.

A new report by Pakistan’s leading human rights group has revealed at least 943 women were killed last year by their fathers, husbands or brothers for damaging their family name. Ninety-three of those killed were minors.

Monogamy Reduces Major Social Problems of Polygamist Cultures

“Our goal was to understand why monogamous marriage has become standard in most developed nations in recent centuries, when most recorded cultures have practiced polygyny,” says UBC Prof. Joseph Henrich, a cultural anthropologist, referring to the form of polygamy that permits multiple wives, which continues to be practiced in some parts of Africa, Asia, the Middle East and North America.

“The emergence of monogamous marriage is also puzzling for some as the very people who most benefit from polygyny — wealthy, powerful men — were best positioned to reject it,” says Henrich, lead author of the study that was recently published in the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. “Our findings suggest that that institutionalized monogamous marriage provides greater net benefits for society at large by reducing social problems that are inherent in polygynous societies.”

A Wakeup Call to Arab Women Living in the West, Part 3

The legacy of the liberty and dignity enjoyed by the Arab women of Jahiliyah days has been analyzed in Part 2 of this article. Let us now ponder over the reasons behind Muhammad’s Megalomaniac behavior towards women, and also about how to overcome this centuries-old oppression on them. To understand the reasons for Muhammad’s character, one must study the psychological profile of his past. Muslims tell all kinds of myths and fairytales about the childhood of Muhammad. Whatever we are told about Muhammad are either fabricated fables or overly exaggerated.

Wakeup Call to Arab Women Living in the West, Part 2

The fact, which the scholars of the religion of peace didn’t like to tell the believers and Kuffars, is that the pre-Islamic Arabs, by nature, were aggressive and often waged meaningless wars amongst them. This resulted in the decline of males in comparison to females in society. To cover up the difference in the sex ratio, they had no choice but to marry multiple wives. Also, in an effort to produce male-children, they even made the use of their widows. In that sense, the Arab women acted as a tool for producing maximum number of children. Muhammad just Islamized that tradition of his forefathers.

A Wakeup Call to Muslim Arab Women Living in the West, Part 1

Arab women! It’s time to stop cursing your fate! Enough is enough! It is a pity to be born as women in Muhammadan society in general, and in the Arabian Muhammadan society in particular. It’s a 14-century-old curse upon you. Let us not lose hope. Instead of resigning to your fate, as you have been forced to for centuries, it is time to stand up to reverse the fate of your daughters and granddaughters.

A Woman is Worth Half a Man in Islam… Literally

Equality (or in this case, inequality) between the sexes is a very controversial topic in the modern Islamic world. Muslim countries are advancing and trying to catch up with the west, yet women and men cannot have equal rights because Sharia Law states that the value of a woman is half of a man.

My Biggest Problems with Mohammad the “Prophet” of Islam. A Polygamist and Pedophile

Mohammad, of course, is the main reason why polygamy is accepted throughout Islamic countries. He even had his own set of rules that applied only to him. Since he was “special”, he was actually allowed to have 9 wives at once (there were others at different times). This also doesn’t include any of the slaves that he took as wives (a common practice during his time).

‘Honour’ based violence in the United Kingdom

Authority. Islam is not the only patriarchal society present within the UK, but Islam’s Patriarchal nature is clearly written into its religious code in that women are expected to obey men throughout their lives (K.4:34; Bukhari Vol.4, Bk.54, No.460, Vol.7, Bk.62, No.81, Vol.7 Bk.62, No.121; Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 11, Number 2135, book 11, Number 2141, Book 11, Number 2142; Ibn Majah 1854; Mishkat al-Masabih Book 1:60, Book 1:61; Kanz el’Ummal, Vol.22, No.868; Ishaq p969; Tirmidhi Hadith, Number 104. These quotes generally reflect the level of obedience required of Muslim wives to their husbands. Given that all societies regard children as owing obedience to their parents we can deduce that un-wed women and girls are required to be obedient to their fathers, and other close male relatives.)

Germans Stunned by Report on Forced Marriages

The vast majority of these victims are women or girls, although 6% are young men. Almost one-third of those forced into marriage in Germany were 17 years old or younger. Another 40% were between the ages of 18 and 21.
Many of the victims experienced extreme violence. More than half (70%) were beaten or otherwise physically abused to convince them to marry, and 27% were threatened with weapons or with death if they did not go through with the forced marriage.
The vast majority — 83.4% — of the victims of forced marriages were from Muslim households. Another 10% were Yazidi (a Kurdish religion) and 3.4% were Christians.

Where Is The Honor?

Sexual Encounters of the Muslim Kind…!

Qur’an 4:85 ‘Whoever recommends and helps a good cause becomes a partner therein: And whoever recommends and helps an evil cause, shares in its burden: And Allah hath power over all things…’ This article is explicit in verbal verbose, so discretion is highly advised.

Sexual Slavery of Women in Islam

  Islam has a long history of the enslavement of women. Of course, this was never mentioned to me at all. It was always said that a Muslim man can marry up to 4 women but 1 is better and hardly anybody actually did that any more. I never understood that part about “And that [...]

Adoption in Islam and the History of Prophet Muhammad’s Marriage to Zainab Bint Jahsh

Islam prohibits adopting children. Adoption, as it is understood in the West, is not allowed in Muslim Shariah law.

Mohammad and Allah one and the same

Preliminary Remarks I may be a Kaffir according to Islam, but all of Islam is the worst Paganism ideology that has ever existed, and that for two simple reasons: it is evil and obviously a fraud. There are many ayats in the Qur’an that make my point, so to give only one could be said [...]

Wife Beating In Islam

Child Marriage

  In all my years as a Muslim, I never heard anyone talk about Aisha’s age. Aisha was always described in glowing terms and praised for her wisdom. Wisdom is something that comes with age, and it never really occurred to me to question the age of the Prophet of Islam’s favorite wife. It was [...]

How Muhammad Married Safiya Bint Huyay
