Islamic voodoo on women, Part A

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.

Sahih Bukhari (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 Mecca that is part of the center of Muslims annual pilgrimage)

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:

  • After menstruation clean the private parts and apply musk (fragrance) there…(Sahih Muslim, 3.0647)
  • Put a dish under a menstruating woman’s vulva while she is in prayer…(Sahih Bukhari, 1.6.306)
  • Use saliva and nails to rub off bloodstains from period...(Sahih Bukhari, 1.6.309)
  • Wash period blood with jujube leaves…Sunaan Nasai, 1.295)
  • Period blood, clean with musk…(Sunaan Nasai,1.429)

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.

Islamic Penalty for Doing Sex with a Menstruating Woman

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:

  • If you have sexual intercourse with your wife while she is menstruating then you must give one Dinar or half a Dinar in alms...(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 1.0264)
  • Perform sexual intercourse during the start of menstruation, pay one Dinar; towards the end of menstruation—pay half a Dinar…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 1.1.0265)
  • Do sexual intercourse during a woman’s period, donate one Dinar or half-a-Dinar…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 1.640, 650)
  • Do sex with a menstruating woman, pay a fine of one Dinar…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.292)

The above ahadith demonstrate the legal force of Islamic Voodoos.

Incredible—Islamic Women Ejaculate Sperm

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.)

  • When a woman ejaculates sperm, she should take a bath…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.198, 199)
  • If a woman has nocturnal discharge, she should take a bath…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.197)
  • When a woman has wet dreams, she should take a bath…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.200)
  • Men’s sperm is white; women’s sperm is yellow…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.202)
  • Women has discharges during wet dreams, that is why the son resembles the mother... (Sahih Bukhari, 1.3.132) [There are many quotes like this in the Jewish Talmud]

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, p.2.41) that 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 to enter Paradise) This should not surprise us considering the truth that in many Islamic paradises ‘honour’ killing of women is not considered a serious crime. In Islam, women’s lives are indeed very cheap—Allah has rendered a woman nothing more than mere chattels in the hands of either her father, or her husband, or her son, or her brother, or her grandson, or her legal guardian. (In the Talmud the Rabbis speak the same and describe this as showing women are or worth or great worth, and for the poorest of families dowries are expensive, it also seems to lock women into social and economic classes as the poor could never afford the dowry of the daughter of a wealthy man. Dowries are in the Law of Moses So as bible believing Christians we need to see dowries and the father, the husband and men being set over women in marriage as part of God’s Divine order from the beginning in the Garden and after the fall commanded by God to Eve and her daughters forever on this world. However this dies not excuse the abuse, mistreatment, beatings, and killing of Woman in Islam – all that do such things shall burn in hell according to the word of God.  Men by the commandment of God are to be the woman’s protectors from predatory males.) In Islam, it is compulsory that a woman must be always under the guardianship of a male or ‘her’ Wali.

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:

  • A woman, an ass and a dog disrupts the prayer; (In the Talmud it is the Rabbis that make these claims about a woman and her voice, as a disruption to prayers and recitations, and readings.) if you use the back of a saddle (This has to be a reference to a leather strap or cord that could be used to beat the wife to beat the ass or beat the dog) then that will guard against the disruption of the prayer… (Sahih Muslim, 4.1034)
  • A passing woman, a dog, and a monkey annul a prayer. (A chattering woman, a barking dog or a noisome monkey)  Aisha complained that Muhammad had made women dogs... (Sahih Bukhari, 1.9.490, 493,498) (When one reads the Talmud one finds claims equating women with slaves, and the heathen, and heathen are equated to dogs, Even Jesus Christ acknowledges that the unsaved are dogs. – So here we see Mohammad in his teaching combined both to make women as dogs, as asses as monkeys)
  • A menstruating woman and a dog cuts off a prayer...(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 2.0703)
  • A black dog is Satan; or a donkey or a woman cancels a prayer… (Sunaan ibn Majah, 2.952)
  • An ass, a woman, and a black dog annuls a prayer…(Sunaan Nasai, 1.753)

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 Oxford graduate). According to Islamic Sharia, a woman cannot be a judge, and she can never be a caliph or the head of an Islamic Paradise. In case you are thinking of Indonesia, Bangladesh, or Pakistan, please know that these countries are not real Islamic. Most Islamists will tell us that so far, there has never been a perfect Islamic country, since Muhammad had established such a (Hellish) “paradise” in Medina.

Let us consult the following hadis to ascertain why in a perfect Islamic society a woman can never be the head of state.

  • People ruled by a woman will never be successful (a jihadist who fought in the battle of the camel remembered this saying of Mohammad) (This is contrary to the Word of God as Jacob was ruled by his mother, Rahab saved her household relatives and friends, and then there is Esther who is essence was over the entire house of Israel and wrought deliverance for her people. The woman at the well went and preached and brought salvation to her household and many of her village. All of these are examples of women exerting authority over people, men, and a nation, further in the book of Titus women elders are given the charge over men to teach specific things, Paul’s remark His not suffering a woman to usurp authority over a man is a completely different subject.)  Muhammad)...(Sahih Bukhari, 5.59.709)
  • If a nation is ruled by a woman then that nation will not succeed...(Sahih Bukhari, 9.88.219)
  • A woman, a slave, and an unbeliever is not fit to be a moral police…(Ghazali, p.3.87) [This is a quote straight from the Talmud as to the not being able to be righteous before God.]

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:

  • The evil omens are: the horse, the women and the house... (The mud and plaster house always needs something) (Sahih Bukhari, 4.52.110, 111)
  • A house, a horse and a woman is an evil omen; a mat (On the cold hard dirt floor for a bed) in a house is better than (Sleeping on a nice comfortable couch with) a barren woman… (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 3.29.3911)
  • If there is a bad luck in anything then it is horse, the abode and the woman… (This is a reference to marriage) (Sahih Muslim, 26.5528, 5529)
  • No good fortune in a woman, a horse and a house…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 3.1993)
  • Seek refuge from a woman, a servant and cattle—they are evils…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 3.1918)
  • Miserliness, pride, and cowardice are bad for men but good for women…(Ghazali, p.2.32) (Translation - Women want money, to be proud, and have great self preservation for herself and those of her household)

On the treatment of women in Islam here are a few more remarkable quotes from Ghazali:

  • Muhammad said, “Fear unchaste women because she will make you old before you grow old”… (Ghazali, p.2.34)
  • Women are like crows; only a religious woman is like a crow with white belly among one hundred crows… (Ghazali, p.2.34) (This statement is very Roman Catholicesque as Augustine discusses the semi-purity of devout Roman Catholic women that walk in marital chastity, and devout unmarried Roman Catholic women that walk in chastity. They are clean yet unclean because they are evil perverse women who all are as Eve.)

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.

  • Muhammad never shook hand with a woman…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 4.2874) (This is a Talmudesque Rabbi kind of statement
  • Muhammad never touched the hand of a woman except his wives…(Sunaan ibn Majah, 4.2875) (These can be easily refuted from the Koran and other of their Sacred writings that state that Mohammad had repeated sex with his wife’s servant in his wife’s bed, at two separate times in one night – Mohammad certainly came in contact with his slave girls hands many times during all that sex.)

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.

  • Allah curses the women who wear false hair…(Sahih Muslim, 24.5295)
  • Allah destroyed the Bani Israel people when their women wore false hair…(Sahih Muslim, 24.5306) (I have no clue on this?)
  • Allah curses those women who practise tattooing and those women who get themselves tattooed or those women who manipulate their teeth to look beautiful…(Sahih Bukhari, 7.72.815)
  • Allah gets displeased with the woman who does not immediately respond when her husband demands sex from her…(Sahih Muslim, 8.3367, 3368)
  • The angels curse a woman for refusing to have sex with her husband…(Sahih Bukhari, 4.54.460)
  • Gold necklaces and gold rings on a woman’s body are like fire put on her on the resurrection day… (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 34.4226) (Partial quote from James 4:3 Your Gold and Silver is cankered and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were with fire.)
  • Women cannot wear bells on their legs. There is a devil along with each bell…34.4218)
  • Men’s perfume should have an odor but no color and women’s perfume should have color but no odor. (What?) This means that she should not wear any perfume while going out but she can wear a perfume when she is with her husband…(Sunaan Abu Dawud, 32.4037) (The Song of Solomon is filled with Perfumes, as is the book of Esther she was soaked in it so she would smell from it 24/7)
  • Allah does not accept a woman’s prayer unless she prays wearing a veil... (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 2.0641) (This comes from Tertullian – He insisted that all Christian women wear veils.)

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.

  • Majority in hell are women because they are ungrateful to their husbands... (Sahih Bukhari, 1.2.28) (In the bible the issues for woman is submission to their husband as unto the Lord, being fruitful sexually, sharing sexuality with ones husband as their daily bread, giving birth to children and training them up in the fear and admonition of the Lord.)
  • Majority of women are in hell because they are deficient in intelligence... (Sahih Bukhari, 1.6.301)
  • Those women who are naked even in their dresses and lead their husbands to astray will go to hell… (Sahih Muslim, 24.5310) (This is straight from the writing of Augustine.)
  • A naked woman tears down the curtain of Allah… (Sunaan ibn Majah, 5.3750) (The curtain of allah??? This has to be a reference to the veil the curtain in the tabernacle in the wilderness and in the temple in Jerusalem.)
  • A woman should veil herself even from a blind man [note 3532, vol. iii, p.1147]… (Sunaan Abu Dawud, 3.32.4100)
