Strictly, the topic of treatment of women in Islam, in itself, is massive. Please read other essays on this issue. Many such callous treatments are based upon superstitions, archaic, and barbaric traditions. They are nothing but ‘voodoos’ in a modern society.
In Islam, a woman is truly problematic. From the moment of her birth until her death she endures much more Islamic tyranny than a male Muslim. All these Islamic torment is inflicted on her just because of her sex and biology. When we pursue this episode, we will understand why the Islamists encapsulate a woman with so much of ‘voddoo’ burden, and why it is just impossible to reform Islam, vis-à-vis women.
Allah Hates Menstruation
Monthly period of a woman is the basis of survival of human species. This natural phenomenon is prevalent in all mammals. There is nothing impure, ugly, reprehensible, or sinful in this biological cycle of a woman. We must respect, show understanding, and provide all assistance and care so that a woman passes this period with ease, comfort, and hassle-free.
Unfortunately, in many religions this monthly period of a woman is treated as a disease, unholy, and impure. Islam is no exception on this. It appears that Allah Himself has a great dislike for the menstruation cycle of a woman, even when He Himself had designed this biological process, for the survival of His creation.
In verse 2:222 of the Qur'an Allah has declared menstruation as a disease, and has instructed men not to indulge in sex during this sickness of women. Embarrassed, many Islamists often twist the wordings and insist that this verse actually shows utmost respect for women’s period. This explanation by the crafty Islamists is just a fib. For the truth of Allah’s hatred for women’s period we must turn to hadis.
(3.31.172) says that menstruation is a defect in women, for they cannot fast
and pray during their periods. Allah has more hatred for women who
have prolonged and heavy flow during her period. In Sunaan Abu Dawud (1.1.0287) we read that excessive blood-flow during a
woman’s period is from Satan. To illustrate the damaging effect of
women’s menstruation, ibn Sad (p.1.22) writes that the menstruating women
and unclean people touched the white stone (of Kaba),
so it turned black. (This is the large black rock in
Surprisingly, Benjamin Walker (p.47) writes that Kaba (In Arabic) means female pudenda. In fact, the Black Stone is shaped like a vulva, while the shrine itself is set in an ovoid space. In a hadis in Sunaan ibn Majah (1.595, 596) Muhammad said that a sexually defiled man and a menstruating woman cannot recite the Qur’an.
Since Allah has declared menstruation a disease, defilement, here are a few Islamic methods to cleanse a woman when she is menstruating:
Besides hating women’s menstruation, Allah insults them further (We as Bible believing Christians do not see any insult here, In the bible women are to be fruitful and called fruitful, a fruitful garden Song of Solomon, fruitful field, fruitful vineyard, etc) in verse 2:223. In this verse, Allah considers women’s vagina as a sowing field, like a machine to produce babies. He says (in verse 2:223) that wives are tilths, sow in them in whatever manner you like. Ibn Abbas says that this verse means the vulvas of your wives are plantations for your offspring, and Jalalyn explains that it is the place where you sow [the seeds of] your children.
If, by mistake, or by chance, a man has intercourse with his wife during her period, Islam prescribes financial penalty to expiate this infraction (i.e., violating verse 2:222). (In the Law of Moses sacrifices and offerings to the Lord were prescribed for infractions of sin including having sex during a woman’s period – In Islam Mohammad did not build a false temple – But he did have his followers pay him bribes and offerings for their salvation in Islam and their forgiveness of various sins, thereby putting himself in the place of God.[This being done in imitation of Roman Catholic Priests, and the Pope who received bribes and offerings to absolve sin and accept the entry of heathen kings and such into the church. We have mentioned that Mohammad was an apostate Roman Catholic, and quite probably an apostate Roman Catholic Priest, We have read that Augustine of Hippo who was a Roman Catholic Doctor and Teacher at a Catholic Divinity School in North Africa knew Mohammad, and therefore Mohammad knew Augustine. Mohammad’s uncle was a Roman Catholic Priest (A disciple of Augustine) , so regardless of whether Mohammad was illiterate or not, he was able no doubt to recite numerous passages in the bible and knew the Roman Catholic Talmudic doctrines and traditions of His day in particular the Hatred of the Church toward Jews – So much so that they were openly persecuting them and legally killing them, and the church was doing the same towards apostates and heretics. We can see into Mohammad’s Christian mindset – through Martin Luther who himself was a disciple of Augustine also. Muslims to this day extol Luther for his hatred persecution and legal killing of the Jews, his hatred persecution and killing of heretics and apostates. Luther was filled with fears and superstitions, he was fearful of demons and spirits of anything appearing and speaking to him any revelation – these are the identical fears Mohammad a disciple of Augustine felt in the cave when an angel of darkness appeared unto him in the cave and he testified demons possessed him and were speaking to him that he was to be the great prophet of Allah. – but his wife told him it was not devils but God – From there he went out and began to preach and teach the deceitful twisted message he had heard and when he ran afoul of Muslim Tribes that sought to kill him for he and his disciples crimes and deceit he found refuge in Medina a city run by some large Talmudic Jewish clans – Seeing the illiterate and simple minded Mohammad these took him and his generals under their wing and began to teach him of the Talmud, of their hatred of Christ, that he was not the son of God, and their hatred of his followers, as long as these Jews submitted to him and joined his ranks they were tolerated but as he as a false prophet continued to make greater and greater demands of his followers the Jews finally had had enough and announced their departure to return to Medina – Mohammad then slaughtered them and kept their copy of Talmud – So here we trace the origin of the Koran as being clearly a blend of 6th century Talmudic Augustinian Roman Catholicism, and Talmudic Judaism.)
There are a number of ahadith on this peculiar Islamic punitive measure. Here are a few samples:
The above ahadith demonstrate the legal force of Islamic Voodoos.
In Islam, it is believed that during her orgasm, a woman ejaculates sperm, just as a man does. A few ahadith even suggest that as a man has nocturnal emission or wet dreams, a woman too discharges her sperm during her sexual dreams. Here are a few ahadith to marvel at Allah’s incredible biology. (Sperm or not Vaginal fluids, and female ejaculations are spoken of in the law of Moses and require bathing of the woman or the woman and her partner that slept with her, and cleaning the bed and other surfaces.)
Allah Dislikes Women; He has Made Women Crooked
In the Qur'an Allah expresses His dislike for females. In verse 43:18 we read that the weak personality of females cannot be associated with Allah; Allah does not like daughters (women). Undeniably, in this verse, Allah openly disparages women. We might think that may be we are missing something good in this verse, maybe Allah cannot be that hateful to women, who He had created from Adam’s rib. (This hatred of Women is actually Roman Catholic Doctrine, beginning with Tertullian, Jerome, and came to its pinnacle with Augustine – namely that women are the source of all sin and corruption in the world, sex is of the devil. The [Jewish Talmud is filled with the uncleanness of women menstruation cycle and that to Talmudic Jewish men there is no greater defilement than a menstruating woman – in the Talmud it is a phobia of Rabbi’s] So we see the Talmudic Koran taking its perverse and evil shape and form.)
To clarify that Allah does indeed dislike women, here is what ibn Kathir writes about this verse:
Women are regarded as lacking something, which they make up for with jewellery and adornments from the time of childhood onwards, and when there is a dispute, they cannot speak up and defend themselves clearly, so how can this [Their creation, and their supposed attributes as defined here by this Muslim Rabbi] be attributed to Allah?
In ahadith we read the reasons why Allah considers women crooked and reprehensible. (Understand here that Mohammad’s followers in the beginning were Bedouin’s tent dwelling nomads – Ishmaelites – And of the wife and daughters of Ishmael the Talmud declares them to be crooked, surly, and strong willed – So is it of any surprise that this would end up in some form in the Talmudic Koran?)
Sahih Bukhari (7.62.114) writes that Allah created women from Adam’s rib; that is why she is crooked.
Sahih Muslim (8.3466) writes that a woman is like a rib, if you straighten it you will break it and if you leave her alone you will benefit by her; her crookedness will remain in her.
In another hadis in Sahih Muslim (8.3467) we read that Allah created women crooked: if you try to straighten her you will break her and breaking her is divorcing her.
Imam Ghazali exposes
more of Allah’s displeasure for women. He writes (Ghazali,
daughters are such burdensome that a man will go to paradise for having the
burden of one or two or three daughters. (Just raising surly strong
willed Ishmaelite daughters will cause a muslim
In Islam, a woman is viewed merely as a repository of sexual organs. Here is what Ghazali (p.2.43), the greatest of all Islamic scholars writes about women. Ghazali quotes Ali, Muhammad's cousin and son-in-law:
A woman has ten private parts. When she gets married, her husband covers one private part; when she dies the grave covers other nine private parts. (This is nonsensical – it is meaningless drivel that could mean almost anything, I can not see the greatest of Islamic Scholars ascribes to this passage – I see no doubt a connection here to some passages in the Talmud but can not think of one that directly relates or gives definition to this quotation.)
Allah’s hate for a barren woman has no bound. Ghazali (p.2.24) writes that Muhammad said:
A prison in the corner of a house is better than a childless woman. (Similarly Solomon writes about childless women and the barren womb being inconsolable, and never satisfied.)
Ghazali (ibid) writes further that an ugly woman with children is better than a beautiful woman without children. (This is sort of the lesson with Jacob and his two wives Leah the ugly and Rachel the beauty. As God sought to turn Jacob’s cold heart to Leah by giving her child after child for Jacob – but in truth Jacob did not repent and his sons came to hate Joseph for his father’s love and for the dreams and visions he received of God, that they did not.)
Women, Dogs, Donkeys, and Pigs Annul an Islamic Prayer
Please read the following ahadith to measure the Islamic Status of a woman:
I quoted from the five of Sahih Sitta (the authentic six) ahadith to demonstrate the importance of this hadis.
Women are Stupid; Devil Controls Women
In Islam, a woman is an extension of Satan or devil. This might sound unbelievable to those who are accustomed to the secular (or non-religious) treatment of women in un-Islamic countries. There are plenty of authentic Islamic sources where women are truly considered as devils. Let us consult a few such Islamic scriptures.
In Sahih Muslim (8.3240, 3242) and in Sunaan Abu Dawud (2.11.2146) we read that a woman advances and retires in the shape of a devil; (Here again we see that this particular accusation of women is Roman Catholic from the tree of Tertullian, Jerome, and Augustine.) so when one sees a woman, he should come to his wife and have intercourse with her. Truly, Muhammad did the same. Once after watching a beautiful and sexy woman, Muhammad hurried to have sex with Zaynab bt. Jahsh. (This identical story minus the part about the devil is recited almost word for word concerning a Rabbi in the Talmud which of coarse predates Mohammad’s experience. It appears that Mohammad is driven to out do the zealotry of the great sages and Rabbi’s, Fatwas’s are no more than Rabbinical rulings, Rabbis perform no miracles and no signs to prove any of their rulings and neither did Mohammad.) Imam Ghazali (p.2.26) confirms this hadis by repeating the story. Another hadis in Tirmidhi (927) writes that after watching a charming woman Muhammad hurried to have sex with Sawda, another of his wives; then he said, ‘Your wife is the same kind of thing as the other woman.’ (Here Islam and Mohammad interpret this as the woman being a satan – in the Song of Solomon and proverbs the message is that the wife is to so offer herself to her husband and to so be his every dream and fantasy sexually and such a virtuous wife homemaker and partner seeking his desires will and his success that a whore has nothing to offer her husband.)
Ghazali (p.2.26) explains the devilish nature of woman in this manner:
If you see a woman in front (sic) she is a devil. After seeing such a woman, hurry to your wife because your wife also becomes a devil; have sex with your wife. (This thought of women being the devil is straight from the tree of Tertullian Jerome and Augustine.)
Ghazali upholds the misogyny nature of Islam. He writes (ibid, p.2.43) that a woman is like a private part. (Penis) When she comes out of her house (Her vagina) the devil holds her high. (In the erection of Sexual desire) Ghazali (p.3.87) even quotes Muhammad, ”A woman is the string of the devil.” (Probably the thought here is that of Samson being bound by woman to betray him.)
A hadis in Sunaan ibn Majah (5.4003) tells
unambiguously that women are stupid; they lack intelligence, no matter how
educated and scholarly she might be (The reason for this is a
woman no matter how educated can not agree with the hatred the racism and the
mistreatment of women in the false teachings of Mohammad and the Koran) (remember,
Ms. Banazir Bhutto is a Harvard and
Let us consult the following hadis to ascertain why in a perfect Islamic society a woman can never be the head of state.
Islam considers women truly evil. Numerous ahadith attest that as per Islam a woman is no better than a horse, a camel, a crow, or a house, because, in Islam, these objects are treated as signs of bad omen. Let us read the following messages of Islam:
On the treatment of women in Islam here are a few more remarkable quotes from Ghazali:
In Islam, women are such despicable that a man should never shake hands with a woman who is not his wife. It seems, in Islam, a leper’s hand is purer than a woman’s hand. Reportedly, Muhammad had never touched the hands of a woman, except his wives. Here are a few ahadith on Muhammad's great hatred for women who were not his wives.
Allah Curses Women Who Attend to Her Personal Grooming
Islam discourages women to beautify their looks to appear presentable and charming. (This comes directly from the New Testament writings of Paul. Mohammad the Roman Catholic would have been well familiar with this passage,) Muhammad had the harshest words for those women who indulged in spending time in beauty parlours. Further, it is the duty of a woman to sexually satisfy her husband no matter what. (Again we find this supposition in the writings of Paul in 1 Corinthians 7:2-5, However Mohammad stops short of the part of the verse that commands husbands to sexually satisfy their wives no matter what.) If a woman does not immediately respond to her husband’s call for sex she is doomed to face Allah’s wrath, until she surrenders her person to her husband. (This may well have to do with the passage in Leviticus 19:13 Paul cited in 1Corinthians 7:2-5 that declares that a woman is to pay her daily wage, and if not and her husband cry to the Lord the Lord with judge her. The surrendering and submission is commanded of her from Eve to the writings of Paul and the Apostles.)
Here are a few ahadith to demonstrate Allah’s wrath for women who attempt to beautify their appearances and do otherwise when her husband calls her for sex.
Majority of Women will be in Islamic Hell
Allah possesses so much hatred towards women that He has relegated most women to hell. Here are a few ahadith where Muhammad claimed that he saw that most of the inhabitants of hell are women.
