Read to know why there’s such a strong resistance by Islamic leaders against implementation of Uniform Civil Code and removal of laws demeaning women. What more can be expected of those who have been thoroughly brainwashed by Madrassa education based on Quran and Hadiths. Read on to know the status and attitude towards women in these most authoritative Islamic texts.

There has been talked a lot now days about women rights in Islam. Many Alim e Din (muslim scholars) have now started discovering the verses of equality, dignity, and prosperity for women in Quran and Hadith. Zakir Naik has a whole series of lectures only on glorification of women in Islam. Let us move away from the hype and go to the authentic Islamic scriptures to see how women are glorified. “Islam and Women Rights” is one topic where I completely agree with Zakir Naik that to know about Islam, do not look at Muslims, but peep into the Islamic scriptures. So let us have a peep:

Women = Dog or Donkey or Pig or Black Dog

1. Narrated ‘Aisha: The things which annul prayer were mentioned before me (and those were): a dog, a donkey and a Woman.”  (Bukhari,V1B9N493)

2. Muhammad said: Cut off your prayer when a dog, an ass, a pig, a Jew, or a woman passes in front you, but it will suffice if they pass in front of you at a distance of over a stone’s throw.  (Book #2, Hadith #0704)

3.  The Messenger of ‘Allah said: …y prayer would be cut off by (passing of an) ass, woman, and black Dog. When he was asked about the specialty of black dog, he said: The black dog is a devil.  (Muslim, Book #004, Hadith #1032)

4. Believers, approach not prayers with a mind befogged or intoxicated until you understand what you utter, nor when you are polluted, until after you have bathed. If you are ill, or on a journey, or come from answering the call of nature, or you have touched a woman, and you find no water, then take for yourselves clean dirt, and rub your faces and hands. Lo! Allah is Benign, Forgiving. (Qur’an 4:43)

Comments-

a. Women, according to Islam, are as impure as dog, ass, and pig.

b. Islam is confused, whether to equate woman with a normal dog or a black dog since 1 and 2 above put any dog in woman’s category, whereas 3 puts only black dog with woman. By the way, black dog is Devil!!

c. Women are dirtier than any colored dog except black since these colorful dogs don’t qualify for the category of devils in which pigs, black dogs and women are kept.

d. Since women are devils, they can’t perform prayers. Their prayers will be cut off automatically in the very beginning due to their own dirtiness.

e. According to Quran, touching a woman is equivalent to touching shit and urine!

f. Women are more unclean and polluted than dirt! As per 4 above, dirt is supposed to purify the polluted hands and face of muslims who have touched woman.

g. But one thing is confusing, that a child is loved, kissed and fed by his mother. How can this verse be applicable to him? Or, is Quran an adult literature, which has no significance to children?

h. What do muslims do while eating the food cooked by the dirty hands of a woman? Is food washed before eating or rubbed into dirt?

i. What about the men (including Muhammad), who have/had the same blood flowing through their veins as that of their mothers (who are dirty as per Islam)? This whole body is formed in the womb of that dirty (?) woman, so why don’t muslims keep on rubbing their bodies in dirt every time?

Women are like horse (Evolution of Islam!)

Readers would be thinking that how one can compare women with dogs and pigs, but since Islam is humanitarian; it also has something, which is better than dogs and pigs to compare!

5.  Allah’s Messenger had said. If bad luck is a fact, then it is in the horse, the woman and the house.  (Muslim, Book #026, Hadith #5526)

6. The Prophet said: There is no hamah, no infection and no evil omen; if there is in anything an evil omen, it is a house, a horse, and a woman.  (Muslim, Book #26, Hadith #5524)

Comments-

a. First of all thanks to Prophet Muhammad to uplift the status of woman from pigs and dogs to horse! Or is it evolution of Islam over ages? (We know that Quran and other Islamic books continued to be written ages after Muhammad’s death. Refer article on Quran and Vedas)

b. If bad luck exists, its source is women according to Islam. But Quran says that fate of everyone has already been decided by Allah and all the deeds of humans have been written in Lohe Mehfooz prior to their acts (Please refer to our article- “Helpless Destiny in Islam” to know more). Will not then Allah be the ultimate source of bad luck? Why did He write all bad luck in the fate of women? Or did Allah make women as a tool to transmit his bad luck?

c. Since woman is the source of all bad luck, what about Prophet Muhammad, who was also a product of a woman? Can we say that he was also a ……. to the world (please use common sense to fill the blank)?

 

Islam says women are inferior to men:

7.  Muhammad said: woman is like a rib. When you attempt to straighten it, you would break it. And if you leave her alone you would benefit by her, and crookedness will remain in her.  (Muslim, Book #008, Hadith #3466)

8.  A woman may be married for four reasons: for her property, her status, her beauty and her religion.  (Muslim, Book #008, Hadith #3457)

9. Once Aisha intended to set free two slaves of her who were spouses. She, therefore, asked the Prophet about this matter. He commanded to begin with the man before the woman. (Book #12, Hadith #2229)

10. Allah said, ‘It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.’ Because Allah afflicted Eve, all of the women of this world menstruate and are stupid. (Tabari I:280)

11. Allah directs you in regard of your Children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females. These are settled portions ordained by Allah. (Qur’an 4:11)

12. The Prophet said: ‘I was shown the Hell Fire and the majority of its dwellers were women who are disbelievers or ungrateful.’ When asked what they were ungrateful for, the Prophet answered, ‘All the favours done for them by their husbands.’(Bukhari:V1B2N28)

13. ‘O womenfolk, you should ask for forgiveness for I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of Hell.’ A wise lady said: Why is it, Allah’s Apostle, that women comprise the bulk of the inhabitants of Hell? The Prophet observed: ‘You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses. You lack common sense, fail in religion and rob the wisdom of the wise.’ Upon this the woman remarked: What is wrong with our common sense? The Prophet replied, ‘Your lack of common sense can be determined from the fact that the evidence of two women is equal to one man. That is a proof.’ (Muslim:B1N142)

14. The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.’ (Bukhari:V3B48N826)

15. In hell I saw women hanging by their breasts. They had fathered bastards. (Ishaq:185)

16. Ali [Muhammad’s adopted son, son-in-law, and future Caliph] said, ‘Prophet, women are plentiful. You can get a replacement, easily changing one for another.’(Tabari VIII:62)

Comments-

a. Use of “you” in 7 indicates that most of hadith are only for men since such hadith are irrelevant for women. In fact the Islamic obsession with men is evident from description of heaven also, the ultimate destination of all Muslims, which has women and women for every man, but has no reference to what remains for women!

b. Muhammad compared woman with rib, which is bent always. But what is the mistake of women if they have been created from rib by Allah? Allah created Eve by a rib of Adam and hence Eve was given with the properties of rib. This property was further carried by the following generations. If Allah would have created Eve independently like Adam, or from a straight bone of him, women would have never become like rib.

Further, the world finds that more than women, it is men like the terrorists blasting and looting since ages who have refused to get to straight path. If we look at history, it is not woman, but the savage tribal man’s twisted obsession of treating women as tools for enjoyment, that has caused ruin in the world. So should not those Muslim men, who refuse to reject the false theories of Heaven and its lustful harem despite so clear loopholes in entire Quranic framework, be compared with the rib that cannot be straightened?

c. In Islam, women are just like goods kept for the sale on a roadside shop! If you like her property, status, beauty and religion, she is worthy to be married. Moreover, she can be replaced by a new one as women are plentiful as per 16. So women are use and throw kind of goods in Islam! By the way, are there any criteria for woman to choose man?

d. First of all Allah destined Eve to make the tree bleed and then complains about her act! Allah claims that He made Eve intelligent, but then question arises that how did she act foolishly?

e. If Eve committed mistake, Allah should have given her more wisdom so that she could improve herself. But Allah in contrary made her stupid and then afflicted her. Does not Allah seem to be doing anything without any purpose?

f. What is the mistake of women, who did not commit any sin but are made stupid as per Islam and are subjected to affliction just because they belong to the sex of Eve?

g. Majority of dwellers of hell are women, not because of their deeds but because of their husband’s favour for them! Can anyone understand the philosophy behind this verdict?

h. Women will constitute bulk of dwellers in hell because of their ungratefulness to their spouses, lack of common sense, failure in religion, and their nature to rob the wisdom of wise. But is this always true that only women are ungrateful? Why to blame less common sense if Allah gave it deliberately to fulfil His writing of Lohe Mehfooz? What is the meaning of failure of religion? Can any religion be greater than performing one’s duty towards her children, which every woman does? If Islam has put woman in the category of pigs and dogs in terms of dirtiness, why does Muhammad or Allah expect women to follow the religion?

i. 13 and 14, when read collectively, give very interesting results. In 13, Muhammad says that you (women) are dumb because two of you are needed against one man in testimony and in 14, he says that two of you are needed against one man in testimony because you are dumb! This is same as if someone claims that Islam is best because it is written in Quran. Now if someone asks, why to believe in Quran, he replies because Islam is best! This is the logic given by the greatest and wisest man ever born on earth!

Islam says never trust a woman

17. Tell the men with you who have wives: never trust a woman.(Ishaq:584)

Comments-

a. Now we understand, why do muslims blame their wives with all non sense and beat them. Muslims make their house a permanent hell, here on earth itself, because they don’t trust their wives. But one can ask, who is man to trust/distrust woman? Can’t a woman do same thing for man? These type of verses make it clear that Quran, Muhammad, and Allah, are all for men only. Women are mere machines to satisfy lust of men.

b. Aisha was Muhammad’s wife and most of the hadiths have been compiled on the basis of her narrations. If muslims are not to trust women, how can these hadiths be considered as authentic? Moreover, Aisha and Hafsa were involved in compilation of the Quran, which is available today. If Muhammad never trusted women, how can muslims trust the work of those women who were involved in a conspiracy against Muhammad (please read the incident of Maria in hadiths and seerat)? So, this is a biggest question mark on the authenticity of Quran and Hadith, and thus muslims should reject these books as per Muhammad’s order.

Status of women in Vedas

Unlike Quran, Vedas consider women to be respected the most; some of such Mantras are given below-

Parents should gift their daughter intellectuality and power of knowledge when she leaves for husband’s home. They should give her a dowry of knowledge. [Atharv Ved 14,1,6]

Oh woman! You are the keeper of knowledge of all types of actions (karma).              [Atharva Ved 7,47,1]

Oh woman! You know everything. Please provide us strength of prosperity and wealth. [Atharva Ved 7,47,2]

There are ample such examples in Vedas, which are sufficient to prove that, Vedas are only scriptures, which are free from any prejudice and discrimination on the basis of gender. Everybody is requested to go through the article on this website-“Women in Vedas” to know more the status of women accorded in Vedas. I appeal to every muslim and non muslim sister to judge herself, which could be the true religion, the one which equates women with dogs and pigs, or the one, which regards woman as a sign of motherhood and wisdom.

The choice is yours!

    • Brother Sohil

      You shared really interesting link that rips apart the false Hadith of Sunnis like Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. We really want peaceful people like you to come up and denounce Hadith clearly. But alas! There are very few people like you (Shia or Qadiyanis) who so openly criticize the Hadith. We wish you give your message of peace to Sunnis and Wahabis who are blowing each other and minority sects of course to establish their sect as true Islam.

      All the best..

      PS: The analysis of Islam on this site is directed to intolerant sects and beliefs only. If you think men and women have same rights, this article is not for you.

  • Mughalistan (or Mughalstan) is the name of an independent homeland proposed for the Muslims of India. This Mughal-Muslim state in the Indian subcontinent will include all of North India and Eastern India, and will be formed by merging Pakistan and Bangladesh through a large corridor of land running across the Indo-Gangetic plain, the heartland of India. This Mughalistan corridor will comprise Muslim-majority areas of Northern India and eastern India that will be partitioned for the second time in history.
    The comprehensive plan for a second partition of India was first developed by the Mughalstan Research Institute (MRI) of Jahangir Nagar University (Bangladesh) under the patronage of the two intelligence agencies, Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) and Bangladesh’s Director General of Forces Intelligence, DGFI. The “Mughalistan Reaserch Institute of Bangladesh” has released a map where a Muslim corridor named “Mughalistan” connects Pakistan and Bangladesh via India.
    The Pakistani Punjabi-dominated ISI’s influence on MRI is evident even in the Punjabi-centric pronunciation of the word ‘Mughalstan’ (without the “i”), instead of the typical Urdu pronunciation (Mughalistan). Islamic Jihadis in India have been well-armed and well-funded by the neighbouring Islamic regimes, as part of Operation Topac – the late Pakistani President Zia-ul-Haq’s grandiose plot to balkanize India.

    Not surprisingly, Osama Bin Laden has thrown his support behind the concept and creation of this Greater Pakistan to “liberate” the Muslims of India from the Hindus. The Mumbai underworld (led by Karachi-based don Dawood Ibrahim who executed the gruesome 1993 Mumbai bombings), Jamaat-e-Islami, Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen have declared their unified support for creating this undivided Islamic nation in the Indian subcontinent. The Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and Indian Mujahideen are working in tandem with the aforementioned organizations to waged Jihad against the Hindus of India.

    It is important to note that in its “holy war” against India, the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba has openly declared Hindus to be the “enemies of Islam” who should all be converted or killed. The Lashkar-e-Tayyaba group has repeatedly claimed through its journals and websites that its main aim is to destroy the Indian republic and to annihilate Hinduism. Jaish-e-Mohammed has vowed to “liberate” not just Kashmir, but also to hoist the Islamic flag atop the historic Red Fort after capturing New Delhi and the rest of India.

    SIMI has championed the “liberation of India through Islam” and aim to restore the supremacy of Islam through the resurrection of the Khilafat (Islamic Caliphate), emphasis on the Muslim Ummah (Islamic) and the waging of Jihad on the Indian state, secularism, democracy and nationalism – the basic keystones of the Indian Constitution – as these concepts are antithetical to Islam. The Indian Mujahideen have sent several emails claiming responsibility for several bombings in Lucknow, Varanasi and Faizabad (in Uttar Pradesh), Bangalore, Jaipur, Ahmedabad and New Delhi in 2007 and 2008. The emails refer to notorious Islamic conquerors of India (Mohammed bin Qasim, Mohammad Ghauri and Mahmud Ghaznawi) as their role-models, refer to Hindu blood as “blood to be the cheapest of all mankind” and taunt Hindus that their “[Hindu] history is full of subjugation, humiliation, and insult [at the hands of Islamic conquerors]“.

    The Indian Mujahideen’s emails warn the Hindus to “Accept Islam and save yourselves” and or else face a horrible fate: – “Hindus! O disbelieving faithless Indians! Haven’t you still realized that the falsehood of your 33 crore dirty mud idols and the blasphemy of your deaf, dumb, mute and naked idols of ram, krishna and hanuman are not at all going to save your necks, Insha-Allah, from being slaughtered by our [Muslim] hands?”

  • . Islam is very much like a prison for soul. One can’t do so many things: watching T.V., listening to music, dancing, drinking, drawing, painting, having sex, having a gf/bf, becoming friends with someone of the opposite sex, so many restrictions. No one free to wear whatever I want, make friends with whomever, and use my internal moral system rather than a 1400 year old book to tell me what’s right or wrong.

  • The word secular was inserted into the Preamble by the 42nd amendment act of 1976, during emergency. It implies equality of all religions and religious tolerance. India, therefore does not have an official state religion. Every person has the right to preach, practice and propagate any religion they choose. The government must not favor or discriminate against any religion. It must treat all religions with equal respect. All citizens, irrespective of their religious beliefs are equal in the eyes of law. No religious instruction is imparted in government or government-aided schools. Nevertheless, general information about all established world religions is imparted as part of the course in Sociology, without giving any importance to any one religion or the others. The content presents the basic/fundamental information with regards to the fundamental beliefs, social values and main practices and festivals of each established world religions. The Supreme Court in S.R Bommai v. Union of India held that secularism was an integral part of the basic structure of the constitution.
    However demand for Uniform civil code is generally perceived as anti-Secular[citation needed] and subsidizing religious schools or pilgrims is generally perceived as promoting secularism in India.
    — Secular
    Why ‘o why is uniform civil code anti-secular??
    BTW i also think that caste system should be made illegal to practice under the uniform civil code.. shouldn’t it?

  • BEEF CAN KILL YOU
    The National Cancer Institute in the U.S. has conducted a study which examined the records of more than 500,000 persons aged 509 to 71, who filled out questionnaires about their diet and other health habits. The study concluded that the heaviest meat-eaters were more likely to die over the next ten years than the people who ate the least amount of meat. Rashmi Sinha and her colleagues wrote in the Archives of Internal Medicine: “Red and processed meat intakes were associated with modest increases in total mortality, cancer mortality, and cardio-vascular disease mortality.” In other words, if you eat beef and other red and processed meat, you would be more likely to die of cancer, heart disease and other diseases such as Alzheimer’s than vegetarians.

    A lot of processed meat, such as that found in hamburgers, comes from slaughterhouse trimmings and a mash-like product derived from scraps that are ground together at a meat-rendering plant. These trimmings are usually ‘low-grade ingredients’ cut from a cow that are likely to have contact with faeces and urine, which lead to E. coli contamination. Indeed, E. coli poisoning via beef patties has paralysed and even killed many persons around the globe. In this connection, it ought to be remembered that, in India, almost all animals come into contact with faeces and urine during extremely stressful and cruel conditions of transport over long distances; and are therefore likely to carry E. coli contamination!

    When you bite into a hamburger or chicken sandwich, what do you think that this grass- eating animal was eating before it died? Most likely it was a mixture of ground-up eyeballs, anuses, bones, feathers, and euthanised dogs . Most animals that we eat spend the entirety of their short lives in factories eating recycled meat and animal fat. These herbivores have been turned into carnivores thanks to our process of ‘waste removal’ better known as rendering.
    Every day, thousands of pounds of slaughterhouse waste such as brains, eyeballs, spinal cords, intestines, bones, feathers or hooves as well as restaurant grease, road kill, cats and dogs are produced. From this need for large-scale waste disposal came the development of rendering plants. Rendering plants recycle the dead animals and their wastes into products known as bone meal, and animal fat. These products are sold to the companies that grow animals for meat or milch cattle, poultry, swine, and sheep, and put into their feed. Each slaughterhouse has a privately owned rendering plant nearby.
    The process itself is very disturbing and those who have witnessed it have often sworn off meat for good. The rendering plant floor is piled high with ‘raw product’ – tonnes of feet, tails, feathers, bones, spinal cords, hooves, milk sacs, grease, intestines, stomachs and eyeballs of slaughtered animals.. In the heat, the piles of dead animals seem to have a life of their own as millions of maggots swarm over the carcasses. First the raw material is cut into small pieces and then transported to another machine for fine shredding. It is then cooked at 280 degrees for one hour, melting the meat away from bones in the hot ‘soup.’ This continuous batch-cooking process goes on for 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
    During this cooking process, the soup produces yellow grease or tallow that rises to the top and is skimmed off. The cooked meat and bone are then sent to a hammer mill press, which squeezes out the remaining moisture and pulverises the product into a gritty powder. Shaker screens remove excess hair and large bone chips that are unsuitable for consumption. Now recycled meat, yellow grease, and bone meal are produced and used exclusively to feed vegetarian animals.
    In India, no testing is done of these plants. In America and Europe, state agencies spot- check. Yet, testing for pesticides and other toxins in animal feeds is not done or is done incompletely with toxic wastes accompanying the dead animals – none of which is removed by the rendering plants. Poisoned cattle stomachs, animals that have been lying dead for weeks before being picked up, animals that have been run over by trucks, all their noxious parts, are part of this. The package includes euthanasia drugs given to pets, animals with flea collars containing organophosphate insecticides, fish oil laced with DDT, heavy metals from pet ID tags, and plastics from thrown away meats. Labour costs are rising; and therefore, many rendering plants refuse to hire extra hands to cut off flea collars or unwrap spoiled shop meat. Every week, millions of packages of plastic-wrapped meat go through the rendering process and become one of the many unwanted ingredients in animal feed.
    Even if some people do realise how animal feed is made and feel that it is still too far removed to be a concern to them, most of them do not know of the risks consumption of this meat entails. Perhaps the best-known health concern associated with rendering plants is Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, or Mad Cow Disease. In America, regulations mandate that brain and other nerve tissue be removed from cattle after they are slaughtered for human food. Yet these most infectious parts, the brain and spinal cord, are allowed to go to a rendering facility where they can be processed into pet and animal feed. This means it is possible that a cow with Mad Cow Disease can be ground up and fed to a pig or chicken that is, in turn, fed back to other cows that are eventually eaten by people. India has no regulations of any kind. Behind the scenes and out of public view, these practices are unfolding around the world, putting millions of people at risk for Mad Cow Disease.
    Other diseases that can be contracted from rendering plant product feed include tuberculosis, variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), and Alzheimer’s. All of these diseases, except Alzheimer’s, are transmissible spongiform encephalopathy diseases (TSEs), which means that they is are infectious diseases that leave the brain resembling a sponge. The process by rendering plants makes chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, cows and buffaloes into cannibals: a factor that has been cited as a cause of Alzheimer’s disease, which did not exist in the world until this practice started. Millions of people are affected by Alzheimer’s making it one of the leading causes of death among the elderly across the globe. Scientific evidence shows that people eating meat more than four times a week for a prolonged period have a three times higher chance of suffering from dementia than vegetarians. A preliminary 1989 study at the University of Pennsylvania showed that over 5% of patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s were actually dying from human spongiform encephalopathy. That means that as many as 200,000 people in the United States may already be dying from mad cow disease each year. God knows how many in India but certainly thousands more after 2001.
    In 2001 in India, the BJP-led government prepared a secret position paper on the “Utilisation of Slaughter House Waste for the Preparation of Animal Feed”. This is what the report said: “India ranks topmost in the world in livestock holding and has the potential to utilize slaughterhouse by products to partly meet the growing requirement of animal feeds. The total availability of offal/bones in the country generated from large slaughterhouses is estimated to be more than 21 lakh tonnes/annum. It can also be used for the preparation of animal feeds”. The report goes on to explain that “Presently in India, livestock feed production is cereal-based. This results in livestock, especially poultry, pig and fish, competing with humans for grains and cereals which can easily be replaced with slaughterhouse waste.”
    The Office International des Epizooties (OIE World Organisation for Animal Health) had surveyed the risk of CJD/BSE in Asia . The report revealed that no attention had been paid to any risk analysis on bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in China, India, Pakistan and seven other countries. According to OIE, significant quantities of animal feed of meat origin have been imported into Asia, which may mean that the BSE agent could have reached domestic cattle in these countries. The Report noted that ‘the spread of BSE through rendering plants cannot be excluded in some countries such as China, India, Japan, Pakistan and Taiwan. Therefore, much more stringent management at slaughterhouses and rendering plants, as well as extensive surveillance programmes, are required in those countries. “
    The Indian companies on the Internet advertise their rendered meal as having been made from “spray-dry” machines that turn blood into a fine, brown powder (gardeners know it as blood meal); gigantic kettles that boil fat to make tallow; grinders that crush bones into minuscule fragments.. Millions of tonnes are supplied to the dairy industry, poultry farms, cattle feed-lots, pig farms, fish-feed plants, and pet-food manufacturers. Leading manufacturers of “Meal”, as they call it, are Standard Agro Vet (P) Ltd., Allanasons Ltd., Hind Agro Ltd., Al Kabeer in Hyderabad – also being the four largest private slaughterhouses in the country.
    All animal feed manufacturers use meat and bone meal in their feeds. Recent reports state most domestic animals are fed such rendered animal tissues. A 1991 United States Department of agriculture report states that approximately 7.9 billion pounds of meat, bone meal, blood meal, and feather meal was produced by rendering plants in 1983. Of that amount: 12 %percent was used in dairy and beef cattle feed ,34 % in pet food ,34% in poultry feed and 20 %in pig food . This has doubled by 2006. So has the use of animal protein in commercial dairy feed since 1987 all over the globe. Grass or cereal fed cattle and other animals are nonexistent abroad and lessening in India. BSE expert Richard Lacey states “The time bomb of the twentieth century equivalent of the bubonic plague ticks away.” Do you think Nature will forgive us for a baby chick is eating what’s left of her mother after she’s been stripped down, a calf being fed on her mother’s slaughtered remains, a pig being reared on a diet of dead pigs, a goat being fed on a goat’s leftovers?

    CRUELTY INVOLVED IN CATTLE TRANSPORT AND SLAUGHTER
    In general, animal agriculture, which involves the rearing and maintenance of large numbers of animals, leads to environmental degradation. Mechanised means of cramped and cruel housing, as well as mechanised mass slaughter, severely damages the earth and its resources.
    In India, in particular, cattle are walked unconscionable distances without food or water, in all kinds of weather, to slaughterhouses; if they collapse along the way, they are further maltreated and tortured in the most brutal manner, such as having chilli powder rubbed into their eyes to make them get up, and so on.
    Their tails are broken, segment by segment, to force them to move out of sheer pain. If they are transported by lorry, they are packed close to one another without any room to move at all. Their necks are jerked tightly upward and tethered to the roof of the lorry at a painful angle. The weak amongst them are trampled by those able to stand up. Calves and sick cows are often crushed to death or gored by the horns of other animals.
    When the survivors arrive at the slaughterhouses confused, exhausted, terrified and in dreadful pain, they are killed in full view of one another. More often than not, because of time constraints, cattle which have had their throats slit are skinned alive in most Indian slaughterhouses, where the practice of stunning is either not used at all or else is used incorrectly so that the poor animal remains conscious and live during the entire process of slaughter and skinning.
    Beef production further depletes the earth’s precious and dwindling aquifers, leads to topsoil erosion and the systematic destruction of the earth’s vitally important rainforests. In order to produce just one pound of beef, it takes approximately 2500 gallons of water. To produce just one hamburger, animals are raised on rainforest land.
    Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, Chair of the U.N. Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change, has declared that people around the globe must reduce or give up eating meat in order to combat climate change. Thus, educated and responsible persons holding high office have pointed out an unmistakable connection between climate change and the consumption of meat. Thus, there can be little doubt among right-thinking persons that beef production contributes directly to the depletion of the planet’s aquifers at a time when water shortage is already a major global problem. Meat production progressively results in the desertification of our planet. It is equally clear that beef-eating contributes to disease and hastens a person’s death.

    IIlegal catte trade funding terror: UP govt
    What has for past several years appeared an innocuous even if an illegal side “business”, namely cattle trade, could be a source of terror funding, say top UP government officials. A substantial part of the Rs. 15,000 crore illegal trade is being funnelled to fund terror, officials said.
    The connection between cattle smuggling and big crime first came to light when one Mizanur Rehman turned out to be the key accused in the kidnapping of Kolkata-based proprietor of Khadim Shoes, Partho Burman. Mizanur’s younger brother, Azizur Rehman Sardar, 22, was found to be a Harkat-ul-Jihad-e-Islami (HuJI) activist serving time in Lucknow jail.
    Mizanur was also known to be the trusted aide of HuJI area commander Jalaluddin, alias Babu Bhai, who too is in Lucknow jail. A part of the Rs. 4 crore ransom in the Burman abduction case was suspected to have been diverted to Omar Sheikh, one of the alleged killers of US journalist Daniel Pearl in Pakistan.
    Azizur Rehman is in the slammer for ferrying arms and explosives from Bangladesh to India (his last cache included 2 kg RDX, 10 grenades and 10 detonators). Before that, however, this West Bengal resident operated as a cattle smuggler along the India-Bangladesh border. So do his other three associates arrested with him in June 2007. Azizur is one of the hundreds of foot soldiers in cross border terror network who engages in cattle smuggling during “lean period”.
    Unlike fake Indian currency notes (FICN), narcotics and arms peddling, cattle smuggling is the least known and supposedly least glamorous terror funding tactic, largely below the intelligence scanner. It’s also a highly dependable means of sustaining “peripherals” and recruits who form the most active chain in the terror link. The thriving racket through, as a source puts it, “68 smuggling corridors and 149 sensitive villages dotting the West Bengal border along the 1,485 km long India-Bangladesh border” has been worrying UP and West Bengal governments for over a decade.
    The point was brought home by the animal welfare division of the ministry of environment and forest. In a letter forwarded to the ministry of home affairs, the department highlighted “serious problem of hawala transactions in lieu of smuggled cattle in Chittagong area”. The money, the letter emphasised, “funds Islamic terror groups and their sleeper agents in the country….National security demands that cattle smuggling to Bangladesh end at once.” Based on these inputs, MHA has alerted state governments.
    UP government had shown similar concern over the issue two years ago. On August 26, 2006, then director-general of police Bua Singh quoting secretary, border management, MHA, had claimed in a circular that “animals smuggled from West Bengal border number as high as 50 lakh to 60 lakh a year”. It also noted that “officers in Bangladesh regularize this illegal smuggling of cattle by levying 500 to 1,000 takas of penalty per animal and thereafter hand over its formal possession to smugglers.”
    The trade, sources claim, could be generating Rs. 14,000 crore to Rs. 15,000 crore per annum. The operations involve a strong funnel-shaped network running through Rajasthan, Punjab, HP, Haryana, Uttarkhand and parts of MP. UP forms neck of the funnel and Bihar its stem which finally opens into West Bengal.

    HOLY COW! – Satbir Bedi

    For those of us who grew up in villages, mention of the cow evokes nostalgia. Our dawn broke through the cowshed beside the house. Milking cows was a welcome early morning ritual for the mothers.
    Our mother would enter the shed with a shining pot, lovingly stroke the cow on its back, calling it by its favourite name. The milk that the cow spared for the household nourished the whole family, especially the children, even as it nurtured its own calf.
    The cow is a moving temple, being the abode of thirty- three crore gods of the Hindu pantheon. She has been giving us the sacred ‘Panchagavya’ with its immense medicinal value, being a moving hospital, as it were.
    The cow is the mother of the universe (Gavo Vishwasya Matharaha). She is invaluable in agriculture, transportation, food, medicine, industry, sports, religious functions, emotional stability, economy, etc. From time immemorial, the cow has had a special place in Indian society.

    Being part of farming, food, and medicine, and industry, the cow also contributes to the health of the environment.
    • Ancient scriptures state that “Suryaketu” nerve on cow’s back absorbs harmful radiations and cleanses the atmosphere. The mere presence of cows is a great contribution to the environment.
    • India has approximately 30 crore cattle. Using their dung to produce bio-gas, we can save 6.0 crore ton of firewood every year. This would arrest deforestation to that extent.
    • Cowdung has an important role in preserving the environment.
    • When we burn cowdung, it balances atmospheric temperature and kills germs in the air.
    • Cowdung has antiseptic, anti-radioactive and anti-thermal properties. When we coat the walls and clean the floors of a house with cowdung, it protects the dwellers. In 1984, a gas leak in Bhopal killed more than 20,000 people. Those living in houses with cowdung- coated walls were not affected. Atomic power centres in India and Russia even today use cowdung to shield personnel from radiation.
    • African deserts were made fertile using cowdung.
    • We can reduce the acid content in water by treating it with cowdung.
    • When we offer ghee in fire as part of ritualistic sacrifices, it strengthens the ozone layer and shields the earth from harmful radiations from Sun.
    • Serious researchers have sought to establish an irrefutable link between the frequency of earthquakes and a concentration of large and increasing number of slaughterhouses.

    The Joys of Cow-Based Farming
    Indian agriculture has variety. There is no farm-product that we don’t cultivate. Our land grows all kinds of grains, pulses, vegetables, fruits, flowers, cotton and silk. About 70% of our population has embraced agriculture as profession. Majority of them are small farmers, owning one or two acres of land. Our agricultural landscape is diverse and vivid – in land topology, soil type and quality, irrigation method and frequency of harvesting. Cattle are integral part of this huge canvas of agriculture. We use oxen to plough, to pick and move harvested crops, in irrigation, cow manure as fertiliser, and cow urine as insecticide.
    Unique Role of the Cow in Agriculture:
    • In our country with small holdings and small-scale farming, there is no better alternative to employing cattle in farming.
    • While ploughing, the oxen stride with gentle gait, not harming the surface of the earth, unlike tractors.
    • Even as they plough the land, the oxen defecate and urinate, fertilising the land.
    • Cattle Manure: organic manure, green leaf manure, earth-worms, and slurry manure with cattle manure bond with the nature and make the land fertile. They do not create the challenge of chemical waste.
    • 99% of the insects in nature are beneficial to the system. Insecticides prepared from cow urine or well fermented butter milk does not affect these helpful insects.
    • Dung from one cow is adequate to fertilize 5 acres of land and its urine is can protect 10 acres of crop from insects.
    • As per the Supreme Court, cow dung produced by one ox can support a family for 4 years.
    • Oxen do not pollute the atmosphere.

    Cattle in Transportation
    India has more than 600,000 villages, many which do not have asphalted motorable roads. In hilly regions where even a horse cannot tread, oxen can pull their carts with ease.
    • Boasting the largest railway network in the world, the Indian Railways transported 55.7 core tons of goods in 2004-05.
    • In the same year, the humble ox carts transported 278.5 crore tons!
    • In that year, trains moved 511.2 crore passengers while ox carts had 2044.8 crore customers!
    • Oxen have carried up to 14 tonne goods non-stop for 24 hours, without water and food.
    • Most importantly, the carts do not produce air or noise pollution. How important is it, then, that these hardworking and patient oxen ought to be given adequate food, water and rest for all of their invaluable contribution!
    • Food from the cow is consumed from the start to the end of a meal.
    A mother nursing her infant depends on cow’s milk for her own nourishment. A mother feeds her child for a year or two; thus the cow is a lifelong refuge for us all. The cow feeds its own calf and spares plenty for us, too.

    Uses of cow products:
    • Different popular beverages like coffee, tea, etc. require milk as an important ingredient.
    • Scores of sweet dishes are milk-based.
    • Curds, butter and ghee are an essential part of Indian meal. The taste of items deep-fried in ghee is unmatched.
    • Buttermilk quenches thirst in addition to being a base for many popular dishes in our cooking.

    Cow Products as Medicine
    World Health Organisation (WHO) defines health as a combination of physical, mental, spiritual and social wholeness. WHO has also predicted that bacteria will become immune to antibiotics by the year 2020. That does not scare us!
    We can depend on Panchagavya – milk, curd, ghee, cow urine and cow dung. These have excellent medical qualities individually as well as a concoction, without any adverse side-effect. In addition, if we are already under some other medication, consumption of panchagavya acts as a catalyst.
    Ancient books on Ayurveda state that consumption of cow urine increases resistance to diseases by up to 104%. Note: increase to 104% is an increase of 4%. What do we mean?

    Health from ‘Panchagavya’:
    • Milk : The ‘Charaka Samhita’ states, “Milk is the best life strengthener.” While Casin protein in milk helps growth of infants, calcium and sulphur strengthen our bones. Milk is also rich in vitamins D and B-complex.
    • Curd arrests diarrhoea, controls fat, and resists cancer.
    • Ghee improves intelligence and beauty. It is used to treat eye diseases.
    • Distilled cow urine is effective in treatment of flu, arthritis, bacterial diseases, food poisoning, indigestion, oedema, and leprosy.
    • Panchagavya Mix: Various medical formulations like Panchagavya Ghrita, Amritasara, Ghanavati, Ksharavati, Netrasara etc. are invaluable medicines in the Ayurvedic system.
    The Cow in Industry
    Milk and milk products from cow are used in preparing wholesome dishes and food products. Cow products are effective in treatment for cancer, hypertension, diabetes, heart diseases, neurological problems, psychological problems, skin diseases, ENT problems, fever, cold, hair loss, etc. They can also be used in cosmetic products like soap, shampoo and beauty aids. They help in farming and provide manure and insecticides. We can get cooking gas and electricity from cow dung. The cow industry makes for practical good sense, good health and sound economy.
    ‘Gobar’ Energy
    • India leads the world in milk production. In 1998 – 99, India produced 7.5 crore tonnes of milk. 70% of this produce is from small farmers.
    • South India has more than 75,000 ‘gobar’ gas installations, achieved by the S.K.G. Society of Kolar.
    • A scientist named Bug Jones established the Inland Energy Corporation in California. They collect 1500 tonnes of cow dung a day from the neighborhood and produce 50 MW of electricity.
    • The Gujarat State Government purchases cow urine at Rs. 3 per kg and cow dung at Rs. 2 per kg.
    The Cow’s Role in Economy
    • 70% of our people depend on agriculture. 98% of them depend on cattle-based agriculture.
    • India produces more milk than all other countries.
    • Goods carried by ox carts are 4 to 5 times as much as by trains. This saves considerable foreign exchange. E.g., Transportation worth Rs. 50,000 crore was done by ox carts in 2005. If we expand cow-based industry, the cow would have a defining stature in our economy. Sadly, its already important position in Indian society, culture, tradition and economy is neither understood nor appreciated by certain sections of persons residing in India.

  • Seducing Hindu or non-Muslim Girls is a Part of Jihad
    In her short communication, “A Hindu Girl’s Troublesome Marriage with a Muslim”, Ms. Leona has narrated how Hindu (or non-Muslim) girls are trapped and deceived into love by Muslim boys by keeping them in the dark about the real face of Islam, which most often leads to a tragic end of the marriage. It is only after the girl’s love has grown too deep or the marriage that he starts imposing Islamic restrictions on her turning her life miserable. The root cause of such disasters is the well-meaning non-Muslim girl’s ignorance about Islam. Most Hindu girls consider Islam as just another religion like Hinduism, and hence becomes easy pray of cunning Muslim guys. In many cases, Muslim boys initially suppress their Muslim identity and pretend to be a Hindu by adopting Hindu names.
    As a matter of fact, Muslims born and living in a non-Muslim-majority country never consider it as their own country or motherland. In their eyes, it is simply a dar-ul-harb or a land that must be conquered for Islam. Ideal Muslims consider it as the land of Allah occupied by the non-Muslim enemy, and that they must wage jihad for conquest. According to this Islamic psyche, Muslims living in India do no consider India as their motherland but a dar-ul-harb that must be turned into a dar-ul-Islam. So long this cannot be done, every Muslim should cause harm to India by whatever means they can.
    Most importantly, seducing a Hindu girl for raping or to marrying her is also a part of Islamic jihad. It is now well known that Muslims all over the world are planning to conquer the world by demographic aggression, and for this demographic war, wombs of Muslim women are the most important weapon. So to seduce a Hindu girl, convert her to Islam and marry her, or in other words, to convert a Hindu womb into a Muslim womb, is of vital importance. Muslims in the southern Indian state of Kerala have adopted this strategy, and set up a well-planned program, called “Love Jihad”.
    The Constitution of India gives adults freedom to choose his/her life partner. So, if a Hindu girl, after attaining the age of 18, marries a Muslim boy aged above 21, the law cannot impede the marriage. It is seen that in most of the inter-religious marriages, the boy is a Muslim and the girl is a Hindu. In some cases, Muslim girls are also seen to marry Hindu boys, but such instances are rare. However, one should not blame the Hindu girl for selecting a Muslim boy as her life partner either, as they are, from her childhood, awfully misguided by the Hindu religious teachers. These religious teachers, most of whom know little about Islam, mislead the Hindus by their teachings that all regions are the same, and one can obtain God by following any religion. Above all, Sri Ramkrishna is said to have told, jato mat tata path (or as many religions, there are as many different ways to obtain God). So, after learning all such false lessons, if a Hindu girl marries a Muslim boy, she must not be blamed. But, real guilty are the Hindu religious gurus who propagate entirely erroneous views about Semitic religions like Christianity and Islam.
    Stupidity of Hindu Religious Gurus
    In this context, let me draw attention to a booklet, titled “Mahatma Mohammad O Tar Upadesh” (Mohammad the Great and his Teachings), written by Swami Abhedananda (published by Sri Ramakrishna Vedanta Math, Kolkata). Perusal of it makes the reader convinced that Islam, as a religion, is far superior to Hindu Dharma, and Mohammad was superior to Vedic seers like Vashistha, Vishwamitra and so on. The author in that booklet writes that, even from his childhood, Mohammad was an extraordinarily spiritual man and used to meditate and attain the state of trance very often. He used to attain that profound state of absorption (Samadhi) and experience transcendental vision even when he went out to graze animals.
    But in fact, Mohammad was a man of pastoral and nomadic Arab society and how (and the author has not thrown any light on that) with this background, he could have been able to raise himself to such a spiritual height? It is baffling that a person like Swami Abhedananda could have written all these baseless rubbish and pure lies.
    But the author has consciously avoided penning a single word to describe what Mohammad did after migrating to Medina. The author has not mentioned how such spiritual Mohammad could have been so nonspiritual to marry 6-year-old child Aisha at the age of 52. The author did not explain how spiritual Mohammad could have married Zainab, the wife of his adopted son Zeid, when he was 56 and Zainab was 30. The author did not care to mention how spiritual Mohammad could massacre the entire male-population of the Koreiza clan of Medina in 627 AD. Eight hundred males were butchered within a day, while etheir women and children, about 1000 in number, were enslaved and sold, while the young Koreiza women were distributed among the Prophet and his associates for keeping as sex-slaves. And Mohammad, the spiritual man of Swami Abhedananda, took for himself the most beautiful of them, named Rihana, and raped her on the same night her male relatives, including her husband, were slain in front of her. He did not explain how a spiritual man could have committed such a bloody massacre and exhibit such sensuality.
    Readers will recall that a few years ago, the birth centenary of Dr Mahanambrata Brahmachari, a renowned exponent of Hindu Theology, was celebrated with much enthusiasm. This learned man, in one of his writings, wrote without any context that ISLAM is the abbreviation of the sentence I SHALL LOVE ALL MEN. The author did not mention wherefrom he has collected this very important piece of misinformation. In fact, Islam has no headache for loving entire humanity. Islamic love and humanity is strictly confined only among Muslims. Islam, in fact, divides the humanity into two groups, (1) Muslims or Momens, and (2) non-Muslims or Kafirs, without a grey area. According to Islamic theology, Islam is the only true religion on earth, and those, who follow false religions, are wrong-doers and condemned people. In the eyes of Allah, these kafirs are no better than animals, and hence Allah has commanded Muslims to mount any kind of torture and atrocities on them, kill them, burn them and their houses, take their women and children as captives and rape their women, smash their children on the floor and so on, which is collectively known as jihad.
    So the Koran says:
    “We have created, for hell, many genii (races) of men, ….and they are like brute beasts” (7.179)
    “Verily, those who disbelieve our signs, we will surely cast them to be broiled in the hell-fire, so often as their skins shall be well burnt, We will give them new skins in exchange, so that they may taste the sharper torment” (4.56)
    “Whosoever followeth any religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted of him in this life, and in the next life he shall be of those who perish” (3.85)
    “I will cast a dread into the hearts of the unbelievers” (8.12)
    “Therefore cut off their heads, and strike off all the ends of the fingers. This shall they suffer because they have opposed Allah and His Prophet, and whosoever shall oppose Allah and His Prophet, verily Allah will be severe in punishing them” (8.13)
    “…moreover, as for the nonbelievers, I will punish them with grievous punishments in this world, and in the world is to come” (3.56)
    “Allah loves not the unbelievers” (3.57)
    “…they shall suffer a grievous punishment” (3.77).
    The question naturally arises: what inspired Dr Mahanambrata to write all these lies, all such baseless rubbish. Mahanambrata would never know how many Hindu girls, influenced by his false portrayal of Islam, would marry Muslim boys and suffered hellish torment?
    Baba Loknath has become very popular today in Bengal. One finds a Loknath Baba Ashram at every locality in the city of Kolkata. One must have also noticed that the reason for his extraordinary popularity lies in his assurance that “If any one remembers him in distress, anywhere like in a forest, in deep waters or in a battlefield, Baba Loknath would provide protection for him”. Hindu cowards and fools believe that the Baba would really protect them in distress. But they are not rational enough to think that, if the Baba has really such miraculous power to play saviour for the people in distress, then why he is not showing any interest to save the Hindus in Bangladesh, who are victims of bloody persecution by Muslims?
    However, the devotees of Baba Loknath have made a movie where it is seen that the Baba, with the help of his extraordinary yogic power, goes to visit Mecca (his mundane body stay lying like a dead at his ashrama and his shuttle body goes to Mecca). In Mecca, the Baba puts up in the house of a Mullah and tells him that he would receive Koran from him and give him Purana in exchange, as if Koran and Purana are same.
    After returning back to his Ashram, he says that he has seen three perfect Brahmins (Bipras) in his entire life and that Mullah of Mecca was one of them. It is to be mentioned here that, to every Muslim, whether he is a religious Mullah or an ordinary family-man, considers jihad as the highest form of worship of Allah. Every Muslim theoretically believes that, if he can kill at least one kafir, Allah will reward him heavily on the Day of Judgment (Qiamah). If he succeeded in killing and got killed in the process, he will be a martyr, and land in Allah’s paradise right away; if he kills a kafir but remains alive, Allah will honour him with the honorable title of Ghazi (slayer of infidel) and will receive rich rewards after death. Do the devotees of Baba Loknath have ever thought how many Hindu girls have been misguided to marry Muslims by his misinformation that Koran and Puran are equal and the false exposition of an extremely communal Mullah of Mecca as a noble hearted Brahmin?
    Perhaps it is known to the Hindus of Bengal that in the wake of Partition of India, Thakur Anukul Chandra, being driven out by Muslims of his native place in the District of Pabna, East Pakistan, came to India and settled at Deoghar in Bihar. But after coming to India, the Great Anukul Chandra wrote,
    Buddha ishar bibedh karis, Chaitanya Rasul Krishne /
    Jiboddhare hon abirbhab, ek-i ora tao janisne //
    (O, you fool. You are trying to bring difference among Buddha, Christ, Sri Chaitanya, Rasul Mohammad and Lord Sri Krishna? Don’t you know that there lies no difference among them and they come down to earth only to save the creation whenever they feel it necessary?)
    So, according to Anukul Chandra, Christ, Mohammad, Buddha, Chaitanya and Lord Sri Krishna, all are equal. He also wrote:
    Krishna rasul jisu adi nararupi bhagaban /
    umi je tader murta pratik prerita bartaman //
    (Lord Krishna, Prophet Mohammad, Jesus Christ, all are gods in human attire. You are also a replica of them and have been called for at present for a purpose.)
    So, in above verses, Anukul Chandra has equated Lord Krishna to Mohammad, the prophet of Islam. All these verses and other writings of the Hindu religious leaders that carry extreme misinformation are sufficient to misguide Hindu girls to take wrong decision like marrying Muslims. Hence, we cannot blame Hindu girls if she, being misguided by such verses, marry Muslim boys and thus get into hellish married life.
    Truth about “Jato Mat Tato Path” mantra
    “Jato mat tato path is a great saying of Sri Ramkrishna. A preliminary enquiry is sufficient to realize that Shri Ramkrishna had said these words only to mean that various cults of Hindu Dharma, e.g. Vaishnav, Shaakta, Shaiva, Gaanapatya etc. are same and anyone is capable of obtaining Moksha by following anyone of them. It was Sri Mahendra Gupta (Mastermosai), who, due to his limited knowledge, mistakenly brought the Semitic religions in the fold.
    Sri Mahendra Gupta elaborated “jato mat tata path” to included Semitic religions, without knowing what the teachings of those Semitic religions are, and wrote: Hindus, Muslims and Christians drink water from a common pond, but Hindus call it jal, Muslims call it pani and Christians call it water. The tragedy lies in the fact that, Mahendra Gupta has left the world a long ago. But Hindus are paying the price for his misinterpretation.
    In addition to that, we have the contributions of the nonviolent saint of Gujarat. He used to sing “Ishwar Allah tere naam”, as Allah is Ishwar. Most Hindus do not know that Allah of Islam and the Ishwar of Hinduism are vastly different. A careful perusal of the Koran reveals that Allah is nothing but a leader of a criminal gang, a cruel killer. To highlight this point, Swami Dayananda Saraswati in his Satyartha Prakash writes: “If the God of the Quran had been the protector of all creatures and dispenser of forgiveness and mercy to all, He would not have commanded the Muslims to kill the people of other religions”. He also said, due to this reason, “The Quran does not appear to have been made by God”.
    That nonviolent prophet of Gujarat used to read from the Koran and Gita in his prayer meetings (probably knowing meanings of Koranic verses), and thus had set the misinformation that the Koran is as good as Gita. It is very likely that Priyanka Todi, being misguided by these faulty as well as dangerous interpretations, has decided to marry Rizwanur Rehman and now she is paying the price.
    A Hindu Girl Must think twice before marrying a Muslim
    When a Hindu girl marries a Muslim, it is implied that she must have to embrace Islam. Otherwise, the Muslim community would not endorse the marriage. When Indira, daughter of Jawanarlal Nehru, fell in love with the Muslim boy Firoz Khan, the son Nawab Khan, a liquor dealer, both Firoz and Indira were secretly flown to London, where Indira was converted to Islam in a mosque, name changed to Farzanabibi, and thereafter their marriage was solemnized according to Islamic rites. But after Rajib Gandhi was born, Firoz brought home another woman. So a Hindu girl, when marries a Muslim boy, the net result is that the Hindu society loses one member and at the same time the Muslim society gains one. To describe this loss, Swami Vivekananda has said, when a Hindu goes to another religion, it is not only one number less, but one enemy more.
    The matter is not so simple when a Hindu girl enters into the Muslim fold through marriage. The number of children, who will be born out of that wedlock, would also be Muslims and hence the loss is much greater. Even Gandhiji could not allow the defection of an individual from the Hindu fold. When his eldest son Hiralal converted to Islam, he reconverted him to Hinduism with the help of the Arya Samaj.
    When a Hindu girl marries a Muslim boy, it becomes difficult for her, in most cases, to adjust herself in the Muslim family. She finds it difficult to eat beef, to wear burqa, to live under a constant threat of oral divorce (or triple talaq), and most importantly, to marry an unknown man and sleep with him at least for a night to get back her husband, if her husband, on the point of rage, divorces her with triple talaq. In addition to that, she may also find her husband to bring other wives (as Islam permits a man to marry four wives at a time) and is forced to adjust with her co-wives under coercion and torture. (For example, when Firoz Khan brought home another wife after Rajib’s birth, Indira came to her father’s house in tears.)
    She might also fall victim of sexual abuse by her near relatives, especially by her father-in-law. In Muslim society, when a father-in-law rapes his daughter-in-law, Muslim clerics refuse to accept it as a crime, because Mohammad had married his daughter-in-law Zeinab, as mentioned above. According to Sharia Law, if a woman brings the allegation of rape, she must also produce four male witnesses in her support, otherwise she would be treated guilty of adultery that calls for rajam (or stoning to death) as punishment. It is needless to say that it is an impossible task for a woman to bring four male witnesses to prove her allegation. Hence, in most of the cases, there remains nothing for the victim but to keep silence and let the oppressor go scot-free. In Muslim society, every adult male is more or less lecherous, and possess an inherent desire for Hindu women. And hence when a Hindu girl enters a Muslim household, she runs a much greater risk of falling victim of rape by her close kin. Due to too many such reasons, in about 95 per cent cases, the Hindu girls find no other alternative but to return to her father’s house after horrible experience.
    So, it can safely be said that Hindu girls, most of whom do not know the abc of Islam, marry Muslims under temporary illusion, and later finds it nearly impossible to adjust her with Muslim life-style. It also becomes difficult for her to seek divorce, as Muslim clerics do not treat a prayer for divorce legal if it comes from the woman. Hindu girls, therefore, must think twice before marrying Muslim boys.

  • Taliban behead 3 Sikhs for refusing to convert to Islam
    “A sizeable number of Sikhs lived in the tribal belt, particularly Aurakzai Agency, till the Taliban imposed jiziya or religious tax on them in 2009,” in accordance with Qur’an 9:29. “Three Sikhs beheaded by Taliban in Pak,” from the Economic Times, February 22 (thanks to all who sent this in):
    NEW DELHI: In what threatens to cast a shadow on the upcoming Indo-Pakistan talks scheduled for February 25, three Sikh youths were beheaded by the Taliban in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Area (FATA) region after they allegedly refused to convert to Islam. Their severed heads were dumped at a gurudwara in Peshawar.
    The Sikh youths — identified as Jaspal Singh, Sarabjit Singh and Baronat Singh — had gone to realise the money owed to them by some people in the FATA region adjoining Afghanistan, when they were abducted by the Taliban militia. They were allegedly told by the Taliban to embrace Islam or face death. When the Sikh youth refused, their heads were chopped and sent to the Bhai Joga Singh Gurudwara in Peshawar.
    A sizeable number of Sikhs lived in the tribal belt, particularly Aurakzai Agency, till the Taliban imposed jiziya or religious tax on them in 2009. Most members of the community, faced with increasing pressure from the Taliban to convert to Islam, have since fled to cities across Pakistan.

  • A critical assessment of the superimposed hypothetical conjectures upon the identity of the women in Muslim culture- Hindu -Hate them .

    In Hindu Sanskrit ( Culture) women independence is not prohibited. She is not required to live under the protection of father at young age thereafter under the domination of her husband and lastly under her son domination when she attain the old age. She is not required to stand behind the row of the man despite the fact that she may be more educated than her husband. The demand of the dowry at the time of the marriage of the daughter, permanently joining the family of her husband is not only illogical demand, as is being created by Muslim culture, but the same is again the demonstration to the society by the affluent and educated class of the Hindus to treat the women child with neglect at the time of her growth inside the womb and they are seldom killed through abortion and even after taking their birth. Thus the demand of the dowry and the offering of the same is a crime against humanity. The institution of marriage is subjected to great abuses and has become repugnant to the principles of Hindu law. The polygamy has led to the perpetration of revolting crime. No marriage should be permitted and the male may not be allowed to make any contact with another women when his one wife is alive. However Has rat mohd. conducted fourteen marriages in his life time and his prophecies to the Muslim for conducting four marriages during their life time is the cause of disparity in the society and there by inviting the Hindu counter part to commit such crime under the lust of the carnal desire and on the experimentation as instigated to them by Muslim citizens. Thus the preaching of the Quran provides the discrepancy in the harmonically atmosphere between the two sect of the society living in our nation. The Muslim according to Sura wakara, aayat of Quran no.223 may treat their wife as that of the agriculture field of harvesting the crop for which they are free to dig the women wherever they want to dig her. In case of divorce by reciting talaq thrice at a time or during the sleep, the wife has to undergone the co habitation with another person only there after she may become the valid wife of her husband. The lady in Muslim is considered as “hurray” and are treated like the property conquered during the war time of Daruley -e- Islam required to be converted from Daruley-e –herb. Thus the Muslim cannot be permitted to sit idle during the period of living under the predomination of other religion and he is forced to commit jehad by killing other fellow citizens. Thus the preaching of hazrat mohd and his action during his lifetime have now become detrimental to the interest of majority of the citizens belonging to the non violent community of Hindu civilization. Such a preaching are the seditious crime upon other fellow citizen and thus the same is prohibited under section 95 read with 96 of Cr. P.C and under section 153 –A and also under section 251 – A of IPC .
    The women under Muslim law are seldom solemnized as Muslim religion may justify the child abuse.
    Thus following the tradition of the muslim women may be given the punishment death penalty.
    Amongst the Muslim religion her entrance at the place of worship is prohibited. She is treated as the machine for reproduction of the children.
    There has been instances of beating to such women as according to muslim religion, prophet mohd had committed the same atrocities which are described under the haddish, based upon the treatment given by their prophet to his thirteen wives and many concubine during his remaining period when his wife Khadiza died at the age of 75 yrs when prophet mohd. was running at the age of fifty years and survived upto 65 yrs of age. The women is bound to live under the covering of the garment as the exposure of the women in normal dress may induce other person to indulge in sex. The Qumran sheriff is not allowed even to touch by the women during menstruation. Nobody is allowed to react in case a Muslim male co-habit with other women before his wife. It is regarded that no one should provide the constraint upon the carnal desire of the male to indulge in sex with any women except who has taken the feeding of the milk at their teenage with the same mother. Thus according to Muslim religion the women is only a commodity and she has no right to express her desire and to live like a living human being. The peer is a Persian word representing to the old person suffering from prostrate gland which enlarges due to the disproportionate secretion of estrogen hormones and this provides the increase of sexual impulse and as such the old man known as the peer and maulvi again stimulate their desire to enter in co habitation with some young girl. The girl married with the old man may be subjected to neglect for rest of the time when the impulsive compulsion of the old man minimizes during deficiency of androgen hormone. Thus the women from their childhood till their death are always subjected to be exploited under the guise of the preaching of Quran and haddies by Muslim. She is considered to be the powerless creature having no right of inheritance in comparison to male counterpart from their childhood. Under the Bangladesh Muslim civil law the women can only inherit one- fourth portion of the property in comparison to half portion of the property given to the son.
    Under our common law children are given the name of their father but seldom the name of the mother is required to be given in any educational institution or even at the time of employment. Thus the lady who carries the child in her womb for more than nine months , may not have any right to remain her identity associated with such child after giving him/ her birth.
    The half of the population created by the almighty God just to provide the continuity of the survival of the human being is neglected. Till the orthodox superstitions and hypocrisy with psychopharancy prevalent in these two major religion may not be checked by the strict enforcement of law and drastic punishment may not be awarded by the legislature against such discrimination, the progress of the country may not be given effect to for the prosperity and the growth of progeny amongst the human being .

  • Dr Radhasyam Brahmachari
    Status of non-Muslims in an Islamic State:
    It is well known that Hindus are treated as third grade citizens, or not citizens at all, in Islamic countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh. The reader may have an idea regarding how Hindus (or other non-Muslims) are treated in an Islamic state from a conversation between Sultan Alauddin Khilji and a qazi called Mughisuddin, narrated by Muslim chronicler Ziauddin Barni in Tarikh-i-Firozshahi.
    One day Qazi Mughisuddin visited the court of Sultan Alauddin Khilji and his court chronicler Ziauddin Barni writes,“The Sultan asked the qazi, ‘How are Hindus designated in the (Islamic) law, as payers of tribute (Kharaj-gauzar) or giver of tribute (Kharaj-dih)?’ The qazi replied, ‘They are called payers of tribute and when the revenue officer demands silver from them, they should, without question and with all humility and respect, tender gold. If the officer throws dirt into their mouths, they must without reluctance open their mouths wide to receive it. By doing so, they show their respect for the officer. The due subordination of the Zimmi (tribute payer) is exhibited in this humble payment and by this throwing of dirt in their mouths. The glorification of Islam is a duty. … Allah holds them in contempt, for He says, ‘Keep them in subjection’. To keep the Hindus in abasement is especially a religious duty because they are the most inveterate enemies of the Prophet and because the Prophet has commanded us to slay them, plunder them and make them captive, saying, ‘Convert them to Islam or kill them, enslave them and spoil their wealth and property. No doctor but the great doctor (Hanifa), to whose school we belong, has asserted to the imposition of the jezya (poll tax) on Hindus. Doctors of other schools allow no other alternative but ‘death or Islam’.” (H. M. Elliot & J. Dowson, HISTORY OF INDIA: As Told by It’s Own Historians, III,184) One should notice that, though the above incident took place quite a long time ago and by this time many things might have changed but not the Islamic psyche. So, the attitude of the Muslims towards Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and other non-Muslims in the Islamic Pakistan and Bangladesh remained unaltered even today.
    As a result of the said Islamic attitude, bloody religious persecution is continuing against Hindus and other non-Muslims in Pakistan and Bangladesh, where Hindus are being converted to Islam by force, Hindu children are designated as Malauns or kafir-kutta (infidel dogs) and forced to perform namaz and roja or Ramathan fasting. Hinduemployees are severely beaten up or killed within the factory premises and Hindu farmers and labours are forced to do their jobs as bonded labours, with very paltry payment. In Pakistan, Hindu children are denied admission inschools and provocations and hatred against Hindus are inserted in the school text books. Recently in Afghanistan, the Talibans imposed jejiya or poll tax on Hindus and Sikhs. Above all, the atrocity on Hindu women is really gruesome and pathetic.
    Most importantly, abduction of Hindu girls and women, and molesting and raping them has become a regular occurrence in Bangladesh and Pakistan. In many cases, young and charming Hindu girls are married to Muslims, after their forceful conversion to Islam. It is also important to note that, such atrocities against Hindu women are now being regularly perpetrated in the Muslim majority districts, and also in the Muslim dominated pockets of West Bengal and other states. A few examples of such offences against Hindu women are narrated below.
    Incidents in West Bengal:
    A Minor Hindu Girl Seduced, Kidnapped, Converted and Married to a Muslim:
    Shubhendu Ray is a resident of Bakultala area of Bahrampur in the district of Murshidabad, West Bengal. Mr Ray is a businessman and a local leader of a political party. His daughter Anita is a 15-year-old girl. Shahidul, a local Muslim boy seduced Anita and forcefully abducted her on 14 October, this year. Later on, she was forcefully converted to Islam and on the next day Shahidul married her. On 20 October, Shubhendu Ray, with the help of the police, went to Shahidul’s house and recovered his daughter Anita. A case was moved against Shahidul and then onward he was absconding.
    Meanwhile, Shahidul filed an anticipatory bail petition to the court at Barhamour but the petition was rejected. Then Shahidul moved his petition to the Calcutta High Court and a division bench, comprising of Justice Pinaki Ghosh and Justice Shailendra Prasad Talukdar (both of them are Hindus), granted the anticipatory bail to Shahidul, on 16 December. While delivering their verdict, the Judges said that, though marriage of a girl below 18 is unlawful according to Hindu Marriage Act, it is not applicable in the present case. Since Anita was converted to Islam prior to her marriage, the case falls under the purview of the Muslim Marriage Act and as the Muslim Marriage Act permits one to marry a 15 tear-old girl, hence Shahidul has done no offence.
    The question therefore arises – Is conversion of a minor girl of 15 is valid in law? If not, then the conversion of minor girl Anita stands null and void in the court of law. So treating her marriage according to Muslim Marriage Act does not arise. Furthermore, eloping with a minor girl of 15 without the consent of her parents is a clear case of kidnapping, which is a highly criminal offence and how the honourable judges have overlooked this crime on the part of Shahidul before granting him the said anticipatory bail? Such carelessness and callousness of the honourable judges of a High Court is indeed unpardonable.
    Hindu Girl Kidnapped by Muslim Boys:
    On February 9, 2010, a Hindu minor girl of 13, called Shampa Mandal, was kidnapped by some Muslim boys from the Jagatpur Refugee Market in east Kolkata. Bijay Mandal, the father of the girl, contacted the local activists of Hindu Samhati (an organization founded by Tapan Ghosh for protecting Hindu interests and the honour of the Hinduwomen) on the same day and they, after being briefed by Bijay Mandal, went to the Baguihati police station, accompanied by Bijay Mandal, and lodged a FIR (No 71/10, dt. 09.02.2010). The police then started a case under the article 363 and 366 of Indian Penal Code (IPC), against the main suspect Mohammad Bhulo Mandal, a resident of the village Shutia, near Barasat in the district of North 24-Parganas. (Courtesy, Samhati Sanbad: the monthly organ (inBengali) of Hindu Samhati).
    Kidnapped Hindu Girl Rescued and Brought Back to Hindu Fold:
    Kalpana Mandal is a 17-year- old pretty girl, a resident of sub-divisional town of Basirhat of the North 24-Parganas district. Few months back, Kalpana was love-trapped by a Muslim man. He encouraged her to leave her parents and flee with him. Entrapped by his pollen fraudulence, she deserted her parents, married him, converted to Islam and began to live with him in his house. Her father made contacts with the local activists of Hindu Samhati (HS) and rescued her. The girl left her house again. Her father then took her to the members of Hindu Samhati and pleaded them to bring her back the right path of life. She stayed with HS members who guided her through this difficult stagein her life. After 15 days, Kalpana could understand the evils of Islam and changed her mind. She refused to go back to her crafty, conniving Muslim husband. Then Manoj Mukherjee, a young Hindu agreed to marry her. She was married with Manoj on last 22nd November, 2010, following all Hindu customs and rituals. Now they are living happily, as a bright, cheerful couple (Courtesy: Samhati Sanbad).
    Hindu Girl Kidnapped, Gang-raped and Buried Alive:
    According to a report appeared in the July 30, 2006, edition of Ananda Bazar Patrika, (a Calcutta based Bengali daily) Dipali Roy (12), a girl student of class VI standard and a resident of the Bakchar area of Bamangola in the district of Maldah, was kidnapped by Muslims miscreants, gang raped and buried alive in a nearby jute-field in Maldah. It should be mentioned here that Muslims are 49.72 per cent of the total population of Maldah, according to 2001 census and, many believe, at present it has crossed the 50 per cent limit. A preliminary investigation revealed that Dipali was kidnapped, gang raped and then buried alive. Police could recover the body on July 26, 2006, and arrested 3 suspects Anarul Haq, Jahangir Shaikh and Mithun Shaikh. Police was trying to capture 3 other suspects who were absconding. Investigations also revealed that the 3 culprits arrested were activists of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) or (CPIM) and Krishnapada Roy, the father of the unfortunate girl, was also a local leader of (CPIM). This made Krishnapada Roy to lament that the culprits of his own party perpetrated such an offense to his daughter.
    Hindu Girl Falsely Married and then Feared Sold by Muslim Zealots:
    In this case, the victim was Madhumita Haldar, daughter of Sambhu Charan Haldar, a resident of Bhadropara Village, under Raidighi police station, in the South 24-Parganas district, West Bengal. In February, 2007, Ninnuki Sheikh, based in Rampur, Uttar Pradesh, was visiting his kin Ishaq Sheikh at Bhadropara and approached Aloka Haldar, mother of the victim Madhumita, with a marriage proposal. He offered Madhumita a good life after marriage with aHindu boy Pappu, a friend of his nephew Habil Sheikh who lived in Rampur. The Hindu family was cajoled into believing that Pappu and his family were Hindus. Aloka and Shambucharan, living in poverty, were ecstatic to find a suitable groom, who would support and marry their daughter. Subsequently, Madhumita was married to Pappu at the local Hindu temple. Thereafter the newly married couple left for Rampur by Jammu Tawai express.
    After a few months, when Aloka and Shambu Charan went to visit their daughter and her husband, they found that their daughter was missing. Moreover, they were surprised by the conversation they had with the neighbors. Some people offered them money to buy their daughter, if there be any. This alarmed the Haldars and they returned to Rampur after two months only to find their missing daughter. Repeated efforts to locate their daughter came to naught. The Haldars sold off their meagre holdings and went back to Rampur again, only to find their daughter missing, but no trace was found of Madhumita. Since then, Madhumita’s parents have spent their life’s savings to search for their missing daughter but in vain. (Courtesy: Samhati Sanbad, Mar 6, 2009). The number of such incidents is so many that it is not possible to mention all such cases within an article.
    Incidents in Bangladesh:
    Since the October 2001 general election in Bangladesh that brought Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP)- Jamat-E-Islam led coalition government of Prime Minister Khaleda Zia to power for the second time, a new wave of brutality and violence has been unleashed against the minorities, the Hindus, Budhists, Christians and tribal people. The violence against minorities has surpassed that of 1992, when Begum Zia became the Prime Minister for the first time. Hundreds of thousands of minority families have been affected. The violence range from gang rape and abduction of minor children to elderly women, brutality, murders, attack on temples, churches and orphanage, looting, land grabbing, eviction and forced conversion to Islam. Minorities are being forced to pay Jizya tax to live in their own ancestral homes. The law enforcement authorities are not providing protection to the minorities, rather helping the criminals commit their heinous acts of barbaric dimensions. The violence against religious minorities has been going on unabated.

    Goswami, a college student. She cried out, but the miscreants easily overpowered her and covered her head to muffle the screams. When others in the house came to her aid, the perpetrators drew their guns, started shooting, and carried off the girl even as she struggled to break free. Her family has not seen her since that night three months ago.
    According to human rights activist Rabindra Ghosh, who investigated this case, police deny that any crime occurred and refuse to file a case despite physical evidence of a break-in, which they admit having; the family’s video taped testimony. The legal complaint was however lodged by the girl’s guardians; Who also requested the police locate and recover their daughter. Police, on the other hand, tried to paint the incident as a love affair and refused to admit it as a case of kidnapping. “It is not kidnapping. It is a love affair between the kidnapper and victim”, said the police officer.
    Hindu Girl Kidnapped, Converted to Islam, Raped and Married to a Muslim in Satkhira:

    Kidnapping and Forceful Conversion of Two Minor Hindu Girls to Islam in Bangladesh
    According to a report by Human Rights Congress for Bangladesh Minorities (HRCBM) published on August 5, 2002, two minor Hindu girls, namely Sushma Rani Malo (15), daughter of Shri Anil Chandra Malo and Putul Rani Malo (15), daughter of Shri Monoranjan Malo of village Kulpaddy, Police Station and District of Madaripur, were kidnapped from their houses one kilometer from Madaripur police station. The guardians of the victims described in a very heart-rending manner to Advocate Rabindra Ghosh, President HRCBM, Dhaka, Bangladesh, that their minor daughters were students of Class VIII. The minor girls were kidnapped by some Muslims of the same village, led by the Imman of Madaripur Sadar Hospital Mosque. They were forced to sign an affidavit that they are 19 years of age and they wanted to convert to Islam at their own will on 25th of July, 2002. In addition, they were allured and detained and compelled by some Muslims of the same locality, particularly the supporters of Jamal-E-Islami Party, to swear an affidavit by a Notary Public at Madaripur.
    The victims, Putul Rani Malo and Sushma Rani Malo, came back to their parents on 25th July, 2002, in the evening. On hearing the news that the two girls had gone back to their parents some Jamal-E-Islamic supporters numbering about 250/300 surrounded the houses of the victim-girls at about 11 P.M. at night. The criminals started assaulting Arun Chandra Malo (26), brother of victim Sushma Rani Malo. Arun Chandra Malo sustained severe injuries on the lower portion of the eyes, which were still visible after 8 days. He was under the treatment of local doctor. Ultimately those two victim girls were again kidnapped by the Muslim criminals on 26th July, 2002. The police and law enforcement authorities did neither provide any protection to the girls and their families nor arrested the criminals.
    Not only that the miscreants with the help of some police officials of Madaripur police station tactfully obtained an undertaking from the guardians of the victim girls that they do not like to lodge any complain with the police and they did not take any cases against the criminals. Advocate Rabindra Ghosh finally was successful in filing two F.I.R.’s with the Madaripur Police Station during his visit. As per statements of the guardians of the victims, the following criminals were identified, all of them from the village of Kulpaddy, P.O, P.S. and District of Madaripur, who were primarily responsible for the offence and their names are in the F.I.R.
    Sumi Rani Saha, a Hindu girl could not rescued after three months of her abduction:
    The Daily Amar Desh (Bangladeshi daily) reported on August 6, 2007, that police could not rescue Sumi Rani Saha (14), a Hindu school going student even after three months of her abduction. Law enforcing agency also could not know whether Sumi was alive or she was killed after her abduction. Swapon Saha, father of Sumi Rani Saha is now moving at the door of police and different human rights organizations after he failed to find out his daughter. However, the police could arrest a youth named Mamun in this connection but failed to collect any information from him the whereabouts of Sumi Rani Saha. It was learnt that National Women Lawyers Association was trying to rescue Sumi Rani Saha.

    According to a press report released by The Daily Janakantha, a Dhaka based Bengali daily, on May 20, 2007, aminority girl named Beauty Rani(16) was kidnapped and raped in Natore district, although the victim used to regard the rapist as her sworn father (Dharma-baba). She could not be rescued despite repeated requests to the law enforcing authorities. Beauty’s mother told the police that a man named Gazi who was a ring leader during the regime of the alliance government came to her house on Thursday night and took Beauty to his house saying that he had some important talks with her. When aunty of Beauty Satyarani and a man named Narayan resisted Beauty, they were scolded by Gazi at that time. Every local of the area was afraid of Gazi. Later, Gazi did not take her in his house rather took her in a banana garden and there he beat Beauty and raped her threatening to kill her if she discloses it to anyone else and then fled from the spot. A case was lodged in this connection with the police station on Friday and the medical test of Beauty was also done. Police told that there were many cases against terrorist Gazi. The locals told that Gazi and his associates were very silent for so many days after the hand over of the power of the alliance government. But recently, they got very active. They again started snatching at the dead of night and other crimes.

        In case you are a Jihadi trying to play Taqiyya to make Muslims more intolerant towards non Muslims, remember this place is not where you can do it

        In case you are a non Muslim, dont hate every Muslim. There are many like Ashfaq and Abdul Hameed who loved Non Muslims and died defending them. I know that a Muslim as per Islamic texts has to be a Jihadi who fights non Muslims until Deen of Allah is established. But many people dont take this stupid concept seriously and thus they are not criminals and terrorists.

    • @Steve

      Steve, you dont even have the guts to post comments here with your real islamic name, how will you propagate your so called “rebuttals” to these articles?

      Is your islamic name that bad that you have to rely on a christian/jew name? Are you not being antiislamic this way???

  • LOL what is this? can’t u provide a proper reference , That u provide a distorted interpretation certainly speaks for itself..

  • Abu Dharr reported: THE MESSENGER OF ‘ALLAH (may peace be upon him) SAID: When any one of you stands for prayer and there is a thing before him equal to the back of the saddle that covers him and in case there is not before him (a thing) equal to the back of the saddle, HIS PRAYER WOULD BE CUT OFF BY (passing of an) ASS, WOMAN, AND BLACK DOG. I said: O Abu Dharr, what feature is there in a black dog which distinguish it from the red dog and the yellow dog? He said: O, son of my brother, I asked the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) as you are asking me, and he said: The black dog is a devil. (Sahih Muslim, Book 004, Number 1032)

    The passing of the above-mentioned in front of the person at prayer does not invalidate his prayer according to the vast majority of the Imams of Law, Salaf and Khalaf (early and late authorities) who concur that the meaning of “will cut off his prayer” is not literal but means: “will make his prayer imperfect” due to the distraction they will cause in people’s hearts, while Imam Ahmad considered that only the passing of a black dog actually invalidates it. This was mentioned by Imam al-Nawawi in Sharh Sahih Muslim and al-Mubarakfuri in Tuhfa al-Ahwadhi.

    In other words the hadith does not view women as impure or equal to animals, thats nonsense, what the hadith ment is that women who pass by in front of a praying person , can distract that person during his prayer (which would make his prayer imperfect) , just like a dogg will distract his prayer. It’s like beauty and the beast, the beauty can distract his attention (due to it’s beauty) and the beast can distract his attention (due to it’s smell or sound/wildness etc) .

    Volume 1, Book 9, Number 490:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    The things which annul the prayers were mentioned before me. They said, “Prayer is annulled by a dog, a donkey and a woman (if they pass in front of the praying people).” I said, “You have made us (i.e. women) dogs. I saw the Prophet praying while I used to lie in my bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I would slip away for I disliked to face him.”
    There was a discussion between `Aishah, the wife of the Prophet (P), with some Muslims who were not knowledgeable about religious maters on the issue of what would nullify the salat (the Islamic ritual prayer). She told them that she was knowledgeable about such rules. They remarked that when a woman or a dog, or a donkey passed in front of a praying person, the latter’s prayer was nullified. She corrected their wrong understanding with sarcasm (by saying that they are equating woman with dogs) and said that when the Prophet (P) prayed his tahajjud (midnight voluntary prayers) in her room, her bed (where she lay) was right in front of him. Hence, those Muslims were wrong in their understanding of the rules of nullification of salat: a salat is not nullified if a woman is in front of a praying person.

    Does it require too much intelligence to understand this hadith? You truly know nothing about the Hadiths! Its common sense that you liar lacks, your articles are typical anti-islam polemic lies.

  • Guys,

    Muslim guys: Discussions are allowed in Islam and not the arguments. A muslim should not speak about or scold any gods or goddess from other religions. This is prohibited in Islam. We as muslims, have the rights to explain them what Islam says. Thats the boundary of Islam. Please dont go beyond this. There should be difference between a muslim and others.

    Others: If you are aware of Islam, please speak. Otherwise, dont spread hatred. If you still speak, please identify and ensure that we people are Muslims now and also in the day of judgement.

    Thanks

    • i see you as a fool. what you know about prophet (sal). if u don’t know any think dont tell other as fool because u wast our time. ok.bye if u want to know any think ask any one. cu

  • Most of the things in the article are worng and lied about islam. Islam is a the only religion who values the women. Allah says in the quran "O You who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will, and you should not treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the Mahr (bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at time of marriage) you have given them, unless they commit open illegal sexual intercourse. And live with them honorably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings
    through it a great deal of good." (An-Nisa 4:19)

  • Dear Sister,

    1. All articles in the site, and this article in particular, have been drafted as per the translations provided in established Islamic texts and sites, as per the texts considered authentic by Islamic clergy. No word has been minced in providing these, from our site. Of course, we have tried to omit certain words or expressions or references that we believed to be too offensive and vulgar. You can have this verified by looking at all prominent islamic sites which provide the Hadith and Quran translations.

    2. As per Zakir Naik, all people are born Muslim. Which means that all have right to analyze islam. We are not explaining any bad thing, as mentioned by you. We ourselves do not know how to explain such disgusting things in holy scriptures. We are merely presenting them, as they appear in scriptures, without any alteration and urge people to reject anything that denigrates women.

    3. We would be willing to realize our mistakes, if any. But for that kindly first point out the exact mistake.

    4. Since we have merely used evidence from authentic Hadiths and authentic translations as provided by authentic sites and books of Islam, in case something is wrong, it would be advisable to first get back to these representatives of Islam and ask them to declare that these Hadiths are wrong. Please ask leaders of Sunni Islam to declare publicly that all these Hadiths of Bukhari and Muslim are Haram and they reject them. Let them issue a fatwa that all Muslim sites publishing these hadiths are Kafirs and deserve to go to Hell.

    Please ask your leaders to declare that all those verses in Quran which state that women are less intelligent than men are from Satan and hence haram.

    Till that happens, we would urge all self-respecting women to reject the cult which denigrates them. They should embrace the Vedic Dharma where women are superior to men.

    We bow to the glory of woman that represents motherhood, compassion and blessings for entire humanity! And we want to liberate this noble womanhood from clutches of fanatics who want to imprison her or denigrate her.

    May the truth prevail

    • brother don’t blame prophet (sal) he is a genious.some christian try to blame islam thats why they put like that opinion.say sorry before Allah’s punishment come and learn true about islam from muslim lecturers that is better .

      • The Qur’an says: “O mankind! Be careful of your duty to your Lord Who created you from a single soul and from it created its mate and from them twain hath spread abroad a multitude of men and women. Be careful of your duty toward God in Whom ye claim (your rights) of one another, and toward the wombs (that bear you)” (Qur’an 4:1).

        This verse clearly demonstrates that men and women in Islam are equal to each other both intrinsically – within the very act of creation – and extrinsically, with respect to both their relationship with one another and their duties before God. In fact, the singling out of women at the end of this verse for special reverence as de facto mothers is the only indication of relative inequality, albeit in favour of women.

        In pre-Islamic Arabia, parents would often commit female infanticide because they considered the birth of a daughter an inauspicious omen for the family. The Qur’an condemned feelings of shame at the birth of a girl, and said of those who commit such acts: “He hideth himself from the folk because of the evil of that whereof he hath had tidings, (asking himself): Shall he keep it in contempt, or bury it beneath the dust. Verily evil is their judgment” (Qur’an 16:58-59).

        Fourteen centuries after Islam’s beginnings and the progress, development, education and enlightenment that followed, we still observe the stigma attached to having a daughter in certain parts of the world, like in much of South Asia, for example. In a society where men often support the entire family, the birth of a son is seen as greater cause for celebration.

        Though the empowerment of women, resulting from better education and employment, is changing societal structures, we must do more to honour the gender equality expounded by the Qur’an. Forced marriages, “honour” killings, and women’s confinement to the home by culture, tradition and societal norms have no endorsement from Islam.

        Political and religious leaders in some of the more traditionally conservative Muslim societies, such as the tribal areas in Pakistan, should respect the Qur’anic view of women’s status and rights and work to build on that dictum.

        Islam granted rights of inheritance to women 12 centuries before they were granted to European women: “Unto the men (of a family) belongeth a share of that which parents and nearer kindred leave, and unto the women a share of that which parents and near kindred leave, whether it be little or much – a legal share” (Qur’an 4:7).

        Islam was revealed at a time and in a society in which women themselves had been inherited as property; it was nothing short of revolutionary for them to have their own inheritance rights recognised.

        In Muslim discourse, the debate over women’s rights, or any rights for that matter, is always understood in the context of rights and responsibilities from an Islamic perspective. To respect these rights and responsibilities and to understand our role in the development of a society, we must educate ourselves. Education and knowledge are mandatory upon men and women in Islam.

        After all, it is education that serves as a catalyst for change. “Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Are those who know equal with those who know not? But only men of understanding will pay heed” (Qur’an 39:9).

        The teachings of Islam must take precedence over the cultures and customs with embedded bias against women’s constructive role in many Muslim societies, ironically in the name of the very religion that has granted women far greater rights than these social structures are willing to accept. Any empowerment efforts in accordance with the Qur’an’s vision, which upholds women’s status before the law, must be fully supported. To those who would deny women such rights, we ask, “Will they not then ponder on the Qur’an?” (4:82).

  • Satyagni Ji. It is a very nice article.
    But I am confused here.
    When I used to speak some Pakistani Muslims (they deeply know about Islam, Quran and Hadiths) in UK, they every time tell me that Quran gives highest respect to Women, and when asked prophet who is the second after Allah said two times your mother and third time your father. Ok that is right.
    But why they do skip all the above information? Do they purposley hiding this information?

    Please remove my confusion.

    Dhanyawad

    • Namaste, The Muslim claim of respect for women is a false claim. Bulk of women in Islamic countries are suffering from Vitamic D deficiency. At best, they can claim that in certain respect, Islam was more liberal than Bible regarding women. So instead of stoning a woman to death for every crime, Islam allowed her to live and be a sex-object. Islamic respect for women is restricted to very old Muslim women who cannot be used for sex-purpose. Confusions can be resolved merely by reviewing the Quran and Hadiths, all of which is available online.

      • Satyagni,

        I seriously think you should have done better than this in trying to prove what Islam equates women as.

        I am deeply offended by this article for it is misleading to say the least. You have not quoted the actual translation of the Verse that you have used. The Quran doesn’t say that you cannot offer prayers after touching a woman the actual translation of the arabic word used is Cohabited (as in had sex with a woman). You cannot offer prayers until you have taken a bath if you have had sex with a woman. Misquoting the Quran, using it as the basis of your article and misleading the people accordingly is repulsive to say the least. The actual translation of the verse is:

        “O YOU who have attained to faith! Do not attempt to pray while you are in a state of drunkenness, [but wait] until you know what you are saying; nor yet [while you are] in a state requiring total ablution, until you have bathed – except if you are travelling [and are unable to do so]. But if you are ill, or are travelling, or have just satisfied a want of nature, or have cohabited with a woman, and can find no water – then take resort to pure dust, passing [there­with] lightly over your face and your hands. Behold, God is indeed an absolver of sins, much-forgiving.”

        I believe you will probably delete this comment, just like you deleted another one of mine, but deleting my comment wouldn’t prove anything, it will not justify your false claims of attributing all of your interpretations to Islam. I can very much shake hands with my wife and then go to offer prayers.

        As for the rest of you, kindly read the Surah that he has refered to in the article, Surah-An Nisa that is, if you truly want to know what Quran equates women as.

        The Hadith that are quoted in the article are fabricated lies. As for the translation of the verse that is posted there.

        I’ve been a Muslim my entire life I have never come across any such Verse in the Quran which compares the woman to that of a black dog, however yes i have been told that even if i spend my entire life taking care of my mother, i can not repay her for one night that she had to stay up because of me when i was an infant. Also I’ve been told that heaven lies at the feet of my mother. Also I have been told that women are not my possessions and articles of trade and should be shown the utmost respect. I have been told that Allah has created me in pairs (a man and his woman together), and He never mentions to me that I have been paired with a black dog. Through out the Quran Allah has told me on and off the importance of a woman and glorified His creation (a woman), and I can quote tons of verses that glorify and emphasize the importance of woman from the Quran, however you my friend cannot quote me one verse wherein they are referred to in derogatory terms.

        If a weird twisted maulvi claims that women are black dogs, that doesn’t mean Islam teaches me that. Also at the same time just because someone in the 21st century claims that Hazrat Aisha (R.A.A) narrated something about the prophet (S.A.W) doesn’t mean that its true.

        Like I said I follow the words of Allah the Almighty alone, if you want to talk to me, talk to me with reference from the Quran. Do not talk to me about what a particular person or sect thinks and how he justfies it.

        If you actually believe that Allah refers to women as Black dogs than I suggest before making assumptions and statements and talk about Islam as if you have a lot of knowledge on the subject, you should actually find out about it first hand. And the best way to start off is by reading the Quran. This referral of woman being similar to a black dog can be made by a sick perverted person, but not Allah.

        Regards

        Abdur Rahman (Follower and Servant of Allah – Not His son, for He begets not, nor is He begotten)

      • Abdur Rahman
        Congratulations dear Brother Abdur for accepting Hadith as fabricated lies! This is what we want to convey! These Hadith were created to malign the great character of Muhammad (PBUH). All Muslims following Zakir Naik and Hadith should follow you in rejecting these lies called Hadith. Also, the translation given in the article has been taken directly from Yusuf Ali’s work whom Zakir Naik considers best and thus uses his translation to educate Muslims and non Muslims. So this article is basically for those who believe in Zakir’s version of Islam. You should be very clear that we dont have any problem with true Islam which means peace. Rather we criticize those like Zakir Naik who are backstabbing Islam by proving that all non Muslims irrespective of their good deeds will burn in hell, apostates should be killed, non Muslims have inferior rights in Muslim rule etc etc. So we can never tolerate such mockery of Islam=Peace by such terrorists. Please notice that this article in particular and others in general have criticized only the terrorist ideologies which are prevailing today in the name of Islam.

        So congratulations for not being the part of Zakir’s Islam or Sunni or Wahabi or Shia or Qadiyani Islam which teach their followers opposite to what Islam=peace teaches. But fact remains that there are very few true Muslims like you who have guts to trash the lies like Hadith. So in short, I think this article is never meant for the followers of true Islam which means peace, but for those praying hell for other people, killing apostates, blasting bombs etc.

        Though I still have intellectual difference with you on some topics but that does not stop me to admire your courage for bashing lies of Zakir Naik and others believing in Hadith blindly. I wont ask you that “if Hadith can be fabricated then why to believe Muhammad (PBUH) to be prophet in first place and how can we say that the context provided by Hadith to the verses of Quran is correct or not? And if context can be fabricated, why cant be the content itself?” I wont ask you that “why Allah permitted husband to beat his wife in Quran”? But these things are left miles behind when we see some true Muslim like you who does not consider non Muslims as fuel of hell fire and are not reluctant to healthy discussions.

        So I invite you to join hands against evil powers like Zakir Naik who are defaming Islam and great Muhammad by preaching the lies of Hadith and projecting those as necessary to believe in so as to get protected from hell fire.

        Would you condemn Zakir Naik for his blind faith in Hadith and terrorist views on killing of apostates etc?

        best regards

    • don’t confuce because you are correct.
      my answer is anualy million of women involved to prostitute and they spoil there future by western culture no one help them or give life but islam save girls by some rules and regulation(it is big lesson in islam to womens right).

    • The issue of women in Islam, is topic of great misunderstanding and distortion due partly to a lack of understanding, but also partly due to misbehavior of some Muslims which has been taken to represent the teachings of Islam. We speak here about what Islam teaches, and that is that standard according to which Muslims are to be judged. As such, my basis and source is the Quran–the words of Allah, and the sayings of the Prophet, his deeds and his confirmation. Islamic laws are derived from these sources. To facilitate our discussion we can discuss the position of women from a spiritual, economic, social, and political standpoint.
      From the spiritual aspect, there are seven points to remember:

      1. According to the Quran, men and women have the same spirit, there is no superiority in the spiritual sense between men and women.
      (Qur’an 4:1,7:189,42:11)

      2. The Quran makes it clear that all human beings (and the phraseology doesn’t apply to men or women alone, but to both) have what you might call a human; He “breathed some of My spirit into divine touch. When God created the him” (or her in this sense). 15:29 See also 32:9. Some of His spirit here means not in the incarnational sense, but the pure, innate spiritual nature that God has endowed her or him with.

      3. The Quran indicates again that one of the most honored positions of human, is that God created the human, and as I referred to Sura 17 earlier, it means both sexes, as His trustee and representative on earth. There are many references in the Quran that reaffirm this.

      4. Nowhere in the Quran do we find any trace of any notion of blaming Eve for the first mistake or for eating from the forbidden tree. Nowhere, even though the Quran speaks about Adam, Eve, and the forbidden tree, but in a totally different spirit. The story is narrated in 7:19-27, and it speaks about both of them doing this, both of them are told that both of them disobeyed, both of them discovered the consequences of their disobedience, both of them seek repentance and both of them are forgiven. Nowhere in the Quran does it say woman is to be blamed for the fall of man. Furthermore, when the Quran speaks about the suffering of women during the period of pregnancy and childbirth, nowhere does it connect it with the concept of original sin, because there is no concept of original sin in Islam. The suffering is presented not as a reason to remind woman of the fall of man, but as a reason to adore and love woman or the mother. In the Quran, especially 31:14, 46:15, it makes it quite clear God has commanded upon mankind to be kind to parents and mentions, “His mother bore him in difficulty or suffering upon suffering.”

      5. The Quran makes it clear again to remove any notion of superiority and I refer you again to 49:13. I must caution you that there are some mistaken translations, but if you go to the original Arabic, there is no question of gender being involved.

      6. In terms of moral, spiritual duties, acts of worship, the requirements of men and women are the same, except in some cases when women have certain concessions because of their feminine nature, or their health or the health of their babies.

      7. The Quran explicitly, in more than one verse, 3:195, 4:124, specified that whoever does good deeds, and is a believer and then specifies “male or female” God will give them an abundant reward.

      In the area of economic rights, we have to remember that in Europe until the 19th century, women did not have the right to own their own property. When they were married, either it would transfer to the husband or she would not be able to dispense of it without permission of her husband. In Britain, perhaps the first country to give women some property rights, laws were passed in the 1860’s known as “Married Women Property Act.” More than 1300 years earlier, that right was clearly established in Islamic law. “Whatever men earn, they have a share of that and whatever women earn, they have a share in that.” Sura 4:31.

      Secondly, there is no restriction in Islamic law that says a woman cannot work or have a profession, that her only place is in the home. In fact, by definition, in a truly Islamic society, there must be women physicians, women nurses, women teachers, because it’s preferable also to separate teenagers in the volatile years in high school education. And if she chooses to work, or if she’s married with the consent of her husband, she’s entitled to equal pay, not for equal work, but for work of equal worth.

      Thirdly, when it comes to financial security, Islamic law is more tilted in many respects towards women. These are seven examples:

      1. During the period of engagement, a woman is to be on the receiving side of gifts.

      2. At the time of marriage, it is the duty of the husband, not the bride’s family. He is supposed to pay for a marital gift. The Quran called it a gift, and it is exclusively the right of the woman. She doesn’t have to spend it on the household, she doesn’t have to give it to her father or anyone else.

      3. If the woman happened to own any property prior to marriage, she retains that property after marriage. It remains under her control. Also, in most Muslim countries, the woman keeps her own last name, and her own identity.

      4. If the woman has any earnings during her marital life, by way of investments of her property or as a result of work, she doesn’t have to spend one penny of that income on the household, it is entirely hers.

      5. The full maintenance and support of a married woman is the entire responsibility of her husband, even though she might be richer than he is. She doesn’t have to spend a penny.

      6. At the time of divorce, there are certain guarantees during the waiting period and even beyond for a woman’s support.

      7. If the widow or divorcee has children, she’s entitled to child support.

      In return for these listed securities, it is clear why the Islamic laws pertaining to inheritance give men a higher share. From the social standpoint, as a daughter we find that credit goes to Islam for stopping the barbaric practice of pre-Islamic Arabs of female infanticide. These ignorant people used to bury female daughters alive. The Quran forbade the practice, making it a crime. Sura 81 Additionally, the Quran condemned the chauvinistic attitudes of some people who used to greet the birth of a boy with gladness, but sadness in the case of a girl.

      The duty, not the right, the duty of education, as the Prophet said, is a duty on every Muslim, male and female.

      As far as treatment of daughters is concerned, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said, “Anyone who has two daughters, and did not bury them, did not insult them and brought them up properly, he and I will be like this,” holding his two fingers close together. Another version adds, “And also did not favor his sons over daughters.” One time the Prophet, peace be upon him, was seated. A companion was sitting with him. The companion’s son came. He kissed his son and put him on his lap. Then his daughter came, and he just sat her by his side. The Prophet told the man, “You did not do Justice,” meaning he should have treated the daughter equally, kissed her and put her in his lap also. Indeed, whenever the Prophet’s daughter Fatimah came to him, in front of everyone, he stood up, kissed her and let her sit in his favorite place where he’d been sitting.

      From the marital standpoint, the Quran clearly indicates in Suras 30:20 and 42:11 that marriage is not just an inevitable evil, marriage is not somebody getting married to his master or slave, but rather to his partner. Sura 30:21 reads, “Among His Signs is this, that he created for you mates from among yourselves, that they may dwell in tranquillity with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): Verily in that are signs for those who reflect.” There are numerous verses in the Quran to the same effect.

      Secondly, the approval and consent of the girl to marriage is a prerequisite for the validity of marriage in Islam. She has the right to say yes or no.

      Husbands’ and wives’ duties are mutual responsibilities. They might not be identical duties, but the totality of rights and responsibilities are balanced. The Quran says, “Women have the same rights (in relation to their husbands) as are expected in all decency from them, while men stand a step above them.” Sura 2:228. This only specifies the degree of responsibility, not privilege, in man’s role as provider, protector, maintainer, and leader of the family. The same Sura speaks about divorce, about consultation between husband and wife, even in the case of divorce. When there are family disputes, first the Quran appeals to reason and the consideration of positive aspects of one’s spouse, “Dwell with your wives in kindness for even if you hate them, you might be hating someone in whom God has placed so much good.” 4:19

      If that appeal does not succeed, and problems between the husband and wife continue, there are measures that can be applied. Some of these measures are done privately between husband and wife. Some of them might appear harsh, but there are qualifications to restrict excessive or abusive use of these measures. These measures are considered an attempt to save a marriage rather than break a family apart. If the situation does not improve, even with the limitation and prevention of excesses, the next step is a family council. One arbiter from his family and one from her family should sit together with the couple and try to resolve the problems.

      If a divorce becomes necessary, there are many detailed procedures in Islamic law that really knock down the common notion that divorce in Islam is very easy and that it is the sole right of man. It is not the sole right of man alone and neither is it true that all you have to say is: “I divorce you three times,” and that’s it. Islam also has laws regarding custody of children. I was very surprised to see newspapers making the false claim that in all cases custody goes to the father. Custody involves the interest of the child, and laws often favor the mother of young children.

      Polygamy has become so mythical in the minds of many people that they assume being Muslim means having four wives. This is a false notion, of course. A very renowned anthropologist, Edward Westenmark, in his two-volume work, “History of Human Marriage,” notes that there has been polygamy in virtually every culture and religion, including Judaism and Christianity. But the point here is not to say, “Why blame Islam?” Actually, Islam is the only religion even among Abrahamic faiths, that specifically limited the practice of polygamy that existed before Islam and established very strict conditions for guidance. The question, “How could any man have two wives? That’s terrible!” reflects ethnocentrism. We assume that because we’re living in the West and it seems strange, and we assume it must apply to all cultures, all times, under all circumstances. This simply isn’t true. Let me give you one current-day example. In the savage attack on Afghanistan, genocide was committed on the Afghani people. It is estimated that 1-1.5 million people lost their lives, a great majority of whom were men of a marriageable age. Now, with a great shortage of men, what will happen to their widows, their orphans and their daughters of marriageable age? Is it better to leave them in a camp, with a handout? Or better a man is willing to take care of his fallen comrade’s wife and children?

      It is obvious that monogamy is the norm for Muslims. If we assume that having four wives is the norm, then we assume a population of 80% female and 20% male, which is an impossibility on the aggregate level. The only verse in the Quran that speaks about polygamy, speaks about limiting not instituting polygamy. The verse was revealed after the Battle of Uhud in which many Muslims were martyred, leaving behind wives and children in need of support. This verse shows the spirit and reason of the revelation.

      The Quran placed obedience to parents immediately after worship of God. 3:14 “We commanded mankind to be kind to his parents,” and then speaks of the mother. In a very succinct statement, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said, “Paradise is at the feet of mothers.” Once a man came to him and asked, “O, Messenger, who among mankind is worthy of my kindness and love?” The Prophet answered, “Your mother.” “Who next?” “Your mother.” “Who next?” “Your mother.” Only after the third time he said, “And your father.”

      As a sister in faith, in blood, we find the Quran speaks about men and women, that they should cooperate and collaborate in goodness. Sura 9:17 speaks about men and women as supporters and helpers of each other, ordaining the good and forbidding the evil, establishing prayers and doing charity. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) echoed what the Quran said, “I command you to be kind to women.” In one of his last commands in his farewell pilgrimage before his death, he kept repeating, “I command you to be kind and considerate to women.” In another hadith, he said, “It is only the generous in character who is good to women, and only the evil one who insults them.”

      On the question of attire, the Quran and the sayings of the Prophet did not say women must adopt a particular dress of a particular country. It only gives basic boundaries, and for a committed Muslim woman, she doesn’t follow this simply because her father or husband tells her, but because Allah already stated that as a requirement in the Quran, and was explained through revelation given to Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, that this was not to restrict woman, but to provide a virtuous society where sexual attraction is not the main obsession of everyone. This forces everyone to respect the woman for what she is as a human being, as an intellectual and a spiritual being, rather than being diverted to her sexuality.

      Finally, a few words about political involvement. The verse quoted earlier, Sura 9:17, which speaks about men and women being supporters and helpers of each other was taken by some jurists to mean that it involves also public life. How could they ordain the good and forbid the evil without women being active in the affairs of their society? According to the Quran, I’m not talking about the practices of Muslims, in Sura 60:12, we read about Muslim women making “bayyah” to the Prophet. Bayyah as an Islamic term is somewhat analogous, to a degree, to what we would call an election, or oath of allegiance. And that was given in his capacity not only as a Prophet, but as a head of state, as he was already the head of state in Medina.

      During the rein of Umar, women participated in law making. Umar made a proposal of a certain regulation concerning marriage. A woman in the mosque stood up and said, “Umar, you can’t do that.” Umar did not tell her, “Shut up, you are a woman, you have nothing to do with politics, etc.” He asked, “Why?” She made her argument on the basis of Quran. In front of everybody, he stood up and said, “The woman is right and Umar is wrong,” and he withdrew his proposal. That was the spirit in the early days of Islam.

      In the most authentic collection of hadith, Hadith Bukhari, a section is devoted to the participation of women, not only in public affairs, but in the battlefield, too, and not only as logistical support. Women carried arms, and when there was great danger to the Muslims, they volunteered to participate even in the battlefield.

      The problems presented here are not the problems of Islam. They are problems of a lack of commitment, lack of application, or misapplication of Islamic teachings by Muslims themselves. The topics I have tried to cover here represent and exemplify the big gap that exists between the true teachings of Islam as derived from its original sources and its projected image in the West and the way some Muslims behave in the disregard of those noble teachings.

      There’s no question that the Western media has played an important role in perpetuating these misconceptions. But in fairness, we should not blame the media alone. Western culture, in writings about other religions, in particular Islam, have distorted images. From books, novels, even in the academic circle, and sermons from the pulpit in places of worship, these kinds of prejudices are perpetuated.

      There are fair and honorable people in the media who are receptive to correction of inaccuracies, and who present the facts, when the facts become manifest, as we have seen in the coverage of the barbaric and cruel treatment of the Palestinians n the Occupied Territories. What I would suggest to the media is instead of depending on the distorted information about Islam, they should keep in touch with educated Muslims, and remember, the U.S. has between 5 and 6 million Muslims. Only through correct representation and open communication with Muslims in America can the media give a fair analysis of current events, given the background of those conflicts, and provide a great service to society.

        Here is my response to the seven points on spiritual aspect of Islam about women

        —————1. According to the Quran, men and women have the same spirit, there is no superiority in the spiritual sense between men and women. (Qur’an 4:1,7:189,42:11)——————-

        In Islam, women are not allowed to pray during their menses! Women can not observe fast without her husband’s permission. So the equality in spiritual aspects of praying and fasting remains no longer for women 🙁

        —————2. The Quran makes it clear that all human beings (and the phraseology doesn’t apply to men or women alone, but to both) have what you might call a human; He “breathed some of My spirit into divine touch. When God created the him” (or her in this sense). 15:29 See also 32:9. Some of His spirit here means not in the incarnational sense, but the pure, innate spiritual nature that God has endowed her or him with.————–

        Eve was created out of the rib of Adam, so no question of equality in genetic aspect 🙁

        Do you know how many verses of Quran are applicable to men and how many on women? If you know, the myth of equality should have no longer existed with you

        —————-3. The Quran indicates again that one of the most honored positions of human, is that God created the human, and as I referred to Sura 17 earlier, it means both sexes, as His trustee and representative on earth. There are many references in the Quran that reaffirm this.—————-

        Please see 2.

        ——————-4. Nowhere in the Quran do we find any trace of any notion of blaming Eve for the first mistake or for eating from the forbidden tree…….. Furthermore, when the Quran speaks about the suffering of women during the period of pregnancy and childbirth, nowhere does it connect it with the concept of original sin, because there is no concept of original sin in Islam. The suffering is presented not as a reason to remind woman of the fall of man, but as a reason to adore and love woman or the mother……….—————

        Sahih Bukhari Vol 1, Hadith 301

        “Narrated Abu Sa`id Al−Khudri: Once Allah’s Apostle went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) o `Id−al−Adha or Al−Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, “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?” 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.”

        So Islam is clear! Women are deficient in religion 🙁

        ——————5. The Quran makes it clear again to remove any notion of superiority and I refer you again to 49:13. I must caution you that there are some mistaken translations, but if you go to the original Arabic, there is no question of gender being involved.—————-

        What about Quran [4:34]?

        ———————6. In terms of moral, spiritual duties, acts of worship, the requirements of men and women are the same, except in some cases when women have certain concessions because of their feminine nature, or their health or the health of their babies.——————

        Please see 4.

        7. The Quran explicitly, in more than one verse, 3:195, 4:124, specified that whoever does good deeds, and is a believer and then specifies “male or female” God will give them an abundant reward.

        What will women get in Jannah, 72 houris, wine, Ghilman…. ?

        Will wait for your response on “spiritual” aspect and then if you permit, we will move to political and economic aspects 🙂
