Women in Islam

Reverts or Retards?

Muhammad’s dislike for women caused him to declare that the majority of the inhabitants of Hell are women.[1] When asked why, he said it was because they are deficient in intelligence and religion, and because they are ungrateful to their husbands. (Source)

Forced Marriage of Young Girls In Islam

Thanks to Pamela

The life of young girls in Islam all too often involves forced marriage to men three or four times their age. Of course, it takes the UNICEF reporter forever to finally mention Islam, and not without the craven inclusion of the requisite lying imam’s pathetic statement — which would be laughable if these girls’ lives weren’t so horrific and tragic.

In Islam, women are commodities, mere possessions, and are bought and sold by men. They move from being possessions of their fathers to possessions of their husbands by means of forced marriage, which is in many areas of the Islamic world the norm, not the exception.

Qur’an 33:21: “Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah. ”

Sahih (“sound,” “reliable”) Bukhari 7.62.88: “The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with ‘Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).”

Qur’an 4:34: “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great. ”

Sahih Muslim 4.2127: Aisha recalls a time Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?”

Sahih Bukhari 1.6.301: “‘O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women).’ They asked, ‘Why is it so, O Allah’s Apostle?’ He replied, ‘You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.’ The women asked, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?’ He said, ‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?’ [Qur’an 2:282] They replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?’ The women replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her religion.’ (more here.)


7 thoughts on “Women in Islam”

  1. Muhammad said that women are deficient in mind and deficient in prayers in one of his hadiths, perhaps this may explain the large number of white women in U.K. converting to Islam.

  2. Gerald,
    These numbers are a significant over-estimate – the real figures are unknown.
    The working group who created the figures are basically a muslim group – so treat their interpretations of the data with supreme suspicion. Additionally, the people who convert to a real religion, and leave islam, need to be weighted into the equation.

  3. The methodology of the figures is indeed suspect. They were mostly done by calculating the number of women in scotland who recorded a different birth religion to their present religion, counting the numbers of Muslim converts and projecting this to the UK population. There are alsorts of reasons for these assumptions to be false, however figures in Germany and France seem similar. I could see no figures for conversions from Islam to Christianity, or atheism by similar methodology.

    Muslims leaving the faith either covertly or overtly are a genuine phenomenon, and one reason why the Muslim orthodoxy is so scared of free expression, and so oppressive. If we want to bring down Islam our best weapon is soft power, satelite TV and the internet mean that putting women in bodybags and keeping the women locked up is no longer effective. Iran had to shoot it’s own students to keep the mullahs in power, but the counterrevolution will come at some point.

  4. Foxinsox,
    I think the figures in Germany and France were also computed using the same questionable algorithms. I will look into this and try and provide corrected figures. In principal I think the faulty assumptions used will return roughly the same percentage, so that when rescaled by e.g. population the results appear consistent – even though they are incorrect. In principal the data required to do this calculation is not available but it is worth shooting the muslims down with ther weapons so I will put a little time into this one.

  5. Mohammeds deep dislike for women accounts for his deep love for animals. Obviously bestial behaviour was his only desire and to think that over a billion people actually follow this mad bastard is beyond anyones comprehension.
    I can understand why muslim women take every opportunity to run away from their family and cult.

  6. Wife-beating, sharia, and Western law

    Why would a Muslim feel obliged to pay taxes to the Infidel government? Even for a peerage? The natural order is for the Infidel to pay taxes to him, and his lordship is granted by Allah, not by Gordon Brown.

    Sharia law, which all devout Muslims must approve of, is not just a harsh, backward version of Western law. If it were, it would be capable of reform, over time and under Western influence. On the contrary, Sharia law is, and always will be, completely alien to Western civilisation. Spengler explains why, with particular reference to wife-beating:

    More than the Koran’s sanction of wife-beating, the legal grounds on which the Koran sanctions it reveals an impassable gulf between Islamic and Western law. The sovereign grants inalienable rights to every individual in Western society, of which protection from violence is foremost. Every individual stands in direct relation to the state, which wields a monopoly of violence. Islam’s legal system is radically different: the father is a “governor” or “administrator” of the family, that is, a little sovereign within his domestic realm, with the right to employ violence to control his wife and children. That is the self-understanding of modern Islam spelled out by Muslim-American scholars – and it is incompatible with the Western concept of human rights.

    The practice of wife-beating, which is found in Muslim communities in Western countries, is embedded too profoundly in sharia law to be extracted. Nowhere to my knowledge has a Muslim religious authority of standing repudiated wife-beating as specified in Surah 4:32 of the Koran, for to do so would undermine the foundations of Muslim society.


    On the contrary, Westernized Muslim scholars strive to justify the practice on Islamic legal grounds. Muslim traditional society is a nested hierarchy in which the clan is an extended family, the tribe an extended clan, and the state an extended tribe. The family patriarch thus enjoys powers in his realm comparable to those of the state in the broader realm. That is the deeper juridical content of the Koranic provision for wife-beating in Surah 4:34:


    The term “law” applied to Judaism and Islam means entirely different things to radically different peoples. Civil law rests ultimately on the state’s monopoly of violence. In Muslim states, civil and religious law are identical, such that sharia courts hold the sword of the state. No Jewish religious court has had the capacity to inflict violence since the 1st century CE; the first detailed codification of Jewish law appears in the 3rd century in the Mishnah. The rabbis of antiquity explicitly put in abeyance ancient applications of violence, such as the injunction to kill a rebellious son (Deuteronomy 21:18-21); the Talmud (Sanhedrin 71a) states that no Jewish court ever handed down such a sentence. Killing of rebellious children, as noted, happens in Muslim countries, and is sadly frequent among Muslim immigrant communities in the West.

    Jewish law, though, requires no adaptation to modern Western law, for modern Western law ultimately derives from Jewish principles, as Harvard’s Eric Nelson most recently showed in his 2010 book The Hebrew Republic, and Michael Novak explained in his 2002 volume On Two Wings. Jewish law proceeds from God’s Covenant with each member of the Jewish people. The notion of an intermediate sovereign, such as Islam’s “governor” of the family, is inconceivable in Jewish law, for there is only one Sovereign, the King of Kings. The powers of the earthly sovereign derive from God and are limited by God’s laws. The American founding notion of “inalienable rights” stems from the Hebrew concept of covenant: a grant of rights implies a Grantor, and an irreversible grant implies a God who limits his own sovereignty in covenant with mankind.

    From the vantage point of Islam, the idea that God might limit his own powers by making an eternal covenant with human beings is unthinkable, for Allah is absolutely transcendent, and unconditionally omnipotent. From a Hebrew, and later Christian standpoint, the powers of the earthly sovereign are limited by God’s law, which irreversibly grants rights to every human being. Islam can make no sense of such self-limitation of the divine sovereign, and thus never has produced a temporal political system subject to constitutional limitations.

    In Islam, the family father has the ability to be a petty tyrant in his own home. That may explain the great mystery of modern Islam, namely why nearly a billion and a half human beings have failed over eight centuries to produce scientific or cultural figures whose names the world recognize. Even in Joseph Stalin’s Russia, individuals could find refuge in their families, and in creative pursuits not discouraged by the state, for example pure science and classical music. Islam can make the family itself an oppressive institution.
