Women in Islam

March 28, 2008

In the past few months many Islamic writers in NFB extolling how good is Islam for women have written plenty of essays. They will spare no pain to tell women how kind, just, progressive, non-discriminatory and fair Islam is towards women. They have invented these essays after a few articles by the Kafirs and Murtads clearly exposing the pathetic treatment of women in the Quran and the Hadith were published in NFB.

After reading these essays by the Islamists, most women will wonder where can they find such paradises for themselves. The Islamists will never tell them where these paradises are or if any such paradise exist at all or not. To give credibility to the messages written by these Islamists towards our mothers, sisters, and wives, we need an absolute proof of where can we find such Golden Islamic treatment for our women. So let us have a look at the conditions of women in one of the Islamic paradises, Iran.

In this Islamic paradise (Jannat) the women have been awarded with the following ‘nek’ from Allah:

1. Hijab has been forced on every woman whether she likes it or not. Wearing no hijab may invite severe punishment. And what that punishment could be? Let us hear from the mouth of Prosecutor General, Abolfazl Musavi-Tabrizi. “Any one who rejects the principle of hijab in Iran is an apostate and the punishment for an apostate under Islamic law is death” (August, 15, 1991)

2. Women are fertile fields to grow babies. Unbelievable isn’t it. Let us hear from Ayatollah Mutahari. He said, “The specific task of all women in this society is to marry and bear children”.

3. Women are banned from studies such as Engineering, Agriculture, Archaeology, Restoration of historic monuments, handicrafts andmany other fields.

4. Provisional marriage is lawful. A man may have four “permanent wives” and as many “provisional wives” as he likes.

5. The marriage age for the girls was reduced to 13 and then further reduced to 9 years. This is in keeping with the tradition of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who at the age of 51 married a 6 years old child (Ayesha) and had sex with her when she became 9.
