Islamic literature have a lot of verses that are a blot on humanity and must be rejected by progressive liberal Muslims. We present below verses from Quran and hadiths describing women as half intelligent as men. What can be more denigrating for humanity when first teacher of every human – Mother, is provided such low respect by preachers and leaders of Islam!

Islamic preachers go to the extent of citing these Islamic literature translations to prove that Hell is majorly an all-women place. How can one expect harmonious behavior from those Islamic leaders and their fanatic followers who hate women so much that they wish eternal hell-fire for them just on basis of their gender!

Majority of women will go to hell, more than men

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri:
Once Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) of `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 Messenger (PBUH) ?” 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.”

Comment: Shame on those Islamic clerics and their followers who support such hateful view towards women!

Women described half as intelligent as men

The women asked, “O Allah’s Messenger (PBUH)! 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.

– Sahih al-Bukhari – V1, B6, Hadith 301

Comment: A society which follows such stupid verses denigrating entire womanhood, where Islamic leaders and their blind followers are unable to appreciate intelligence of women, is bound to breed terror and violence. 

2 women witness = 1 male witness

O ye who believe! When ye deal with each other, in transactions involving future obligations in a fixed period of time, reduce them to writing Let a scribe write down faithfully as between the parties: let not the scribe refuse to write: as Allah Has taught him, so let him write. Let him who incurs the liability dictate, but let him fear His Lord Allah, and not diminish aught of what he owes. If they party liable is mentally deficient, or weak, or unable Himself to dictate, Let his guardian dictate faithfully, and get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her. The witnesses should not refuse when they are called on (For evidence). … And Allah knoweth all that ye do.

– Quran 2:282

Comment: No true and sensible human can tolerate such non-sense and insult towards women. Muslim Community must come out of traps of semi-literate mullahs and call for deleting these verses which are absolute garbage.


Open Challenge to all Islam lovers


1. If you don’t look down upon women, prove so by openly rejecting these Quran and Hadith verses.

2. Demand a ban on all those translations which disrespect your own Mother and puts her in hell on account of her being a woman!

3. Come out and strongly condemn these Quran and Hadith translations that insult women by saying they are half as intelligent as men.

4. Until you do, you will be seen as a women hater and a coward who doesn’t have the guts to stand up for the women he loves.

5. It’s time to prove that you love the women in your life – Mother/ wife/ sister/ friend/ daughter, more than those stupid Islamic leaders and preachers who openly disrespect women and describe them as deserving of eternal hell-fire!

Let’s see if you possess courage.

Disclaimer:  We believe in "Vasudhaiv Kutumbakam" (entire humanity is my own family). "Love all, hate none" is one of our slogans. Striving for world peace is one of our objectives. For us, entire humanity is one single family without any artificial discrimination on basis of caste, gender, region and religion. By Quran and Hadiths, we do not refer to their original meanings. We only refer to interpretations made by fanatics and terrorists to justify their kill and rape. We highly respect the original Quran, Hadiths and their creators. We also respect Muslim heroes like APJ Abdul Kalam who are our role models. Our fight is against those who misinterpret them and malign Islam by associating it with terrorism. For example, Mughals, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and every other person who justifies sex-slavery, rape of daughter-in-law and other heinous acts. Please read Full Disclaimer.
