Question for Muslim Women?
On Women's Rights in Islam
April 1, 2007
I was just watching
a program on TV about a Jordanese husband who kidnapped 3 of his
sons from US and took them to Jordan, and the mother did not have
any rights whatsoever over there. Eventually the whole family moved
there, and then gradually the Arab father started to beat the American
mother, she was a prisoner in the family home, which was huge and
with 11 other people living in it. Finally she escaped with her
3 sons, through connections and months of planning, etc. Just like
"Not Without My Daughter" Movie which was based on a true
story of an American woman marrying an Iranian Muslim man and being
tricked to go to Iran with her child, and then trapped in a country
with no respect for Women's rights. She finally escaped. So I was
watching this documentary type of a deal on Court TV. This case
is officially a criminal case here.
A Word of Advice
If you are a
Non Muslim western woman, marrying a Muslim eastern man and then
allowing him to take your family to Near East either for a vacation
or relocation, then more power to you, but then again good luck
getting your kids back! There is nothing wrong with marrying an
eastern man from Near East, but the problem is marrying a Muslim
man from Near East. The key word here is "Muslim",
this Doc, it all occurred to me at once, and I had to write it all
down on the paper, well in my case type it all up on the keyboard!
So here it goes:
A Question comes
to mind. A Question from Women who are still Muslim is that if you
are aware of these facts in Islamic Countries:
of Life in Islamic Nations
it comes to inheritance from parents and executing the "Will"
in Islam, women count as half of the men. The brother inherits twice
count as half of the men when it comes to being a witness in a court
of law. The testimony of two females equals one male! So hypothetically
if you go to an Islamic country and murder someone and the plaintiff
has a female witness to this murder, but you fabricate a male witness,
then you will get away with murder because a male witness counts
twice as the female witness!
do not get the custody of children as primaries in Islamic
countries. Men always get the custody of the children unless the
mother can prove that the father is either psychotic or cannot provide
for the children.
a true Islamic country, women should wrap themselves up in some
sort of hejab, covering head to toe even in the heat of the summer,
so the men will not get turned on by looking at their bodies! The
true Islamic doctrine dictates that every female body part should
be covered in public, except their eyes (so they can see). Even
if they do not cover their whole body, women should specifically
cover their hair's, because female hair may cause an arousal in
men; therefore, it cannot be tolerated. The Islamic logic dictates
to women to cover themselves up, rather than men to cover their
eyes up, so they will not get an erection as Peeping Toms! Islamic
societies are the ultimate chauvinistic environments, which are
still existing in the world! Islamic Societies are something out
of the 7th Century AD, the Dark Ages where half of the population
(women) are enslaved by the other half (men)!
cannot have as equal positions in the job markets as the men do.
By the Islamic laws, they are not allowed to have certain positions,
and even if through struggle, they manage to occupy some of these
positions, then the men in high places will do anything to destroy
in Islam cannot be judges, certain judicial positions, military,
fire workers, certain police positions, and etc. In a real Islamic
country, women basically cannot make it to the big time corporate
positions or high political offices, and if they do, they will be
brought down by 101 different treacheries, because according to
Islam, their place is in the kitchen, bare foot and pregnant. The
Islamic logic presented for not allowing women to gain equal positions
as men, is that: Due to "Hormonal Imbalances" during
certain times of the month such as "Period", women become
emotional, fragile, irrational, uneasy and angry (PMS); therefore,
incapable to make logical decisions. Therefore women should not
be allowed to gain important and critical positions.
are the same as the property of men. Women are second class citizens.
A man can marry up to 4 legal permanent wives (Aqdi) and
as many temporary wives (Siqeh) as he desires (Shiite Islamic
the Islamic societies, women are inferior creatures. Women should
obey their men, they cannot leave the country without the permission
of their husbands, they cannot even poses passports without the
permission of their husbands and if not married, they need the permission
of their fathers. Just picture how pathetically humiliating it is
for a 50 year old woman, living in an Islamic country, with no husband
and no father to be asked by the government agents to provide permissions
from your men and elders to achieve a passport! I am aware of a
few actual cases.
women have been created from one rib of the men, the same as Eve
was made of an Adam's rib. Women according to Islam are "Naqes-ol
Aql" (Quran), meaning that they own not fully functional
brains as men do! Women do not play with a full deck; therefore,
it is up to men to direct them and format their whole lives for
cannot sing and their voices cannot be heard on Islamic TV, Radio,
and Broadcast as artists and vocalists, because it may sexually
arouse men! That is why Persian female singers should either sing
in the concerts with all female audience or go outside the country
cannot participate in many International Athletic Competitions.
Women are not allowed to compete in sports events (such as Olympics)
where men also participate. According to Islam, sports events must
be segregated. Even in segregated Islamic All Female Sports Events,
women must wear full hejab! How can they run, or play sports with
the entire shroud that they are wearing? They are too heavy to move!
Picture a Muslim female soccer, basketball or volleyball team! How
can they play with a ton of Hejab covering their bodies?!
in true Islamic countries cannot participate in any public fashion,
modeling, and beauty pageants, unless they live in Iran and then
they can participate in fabricated fashion shows were they are displayed
with colorful hejabs covered from head to toes as Islamic models!
in Islam cannot be true Artists playing any musical instruments
in front of men, or paint any body parts as painters or many other
artistic limitations. Have you ever seen a Muslim Ballerina, Dancer,
or world class Piano player? The answer is simple: Music, Art and
Beauty is forbidden in Islam!
this day, in many backward Islamic nations of North Africa and Middle
East, Female Genitalia Mutilation are normal practices! Before
the girl reaches the puberty age, they circumcise her clitoris so
she will not have sexual urges to lose her chastity and virginity!
This act scars Muslim women for the rest of their lives, even after
the marriage, because they will not be able to enjoy sex the same
as the men do. This inhuman practice is popular in Sudan, Somalia,
Egypt, Jordan, Palestine and many other Islamic nations.
Killings of women are still a popular practice and tradition
in backward Islamic nations. According to Islam and Laws of Shari'a,
if a girl or a woman found having sex outside the marriage, then
the only path to restore the prestige of her family is for a family
member to kill her!
Islamic nations when a girl or a woman gets raped, the society often
flogs, prisons, stones, hangs and executes the female rape victim
and they either let the rapist men to go free or cut them a few
easy months of jail terms! When a woman gets raped, she is disgraced
and it is her fault that she got raped. The Islamic Logic dictates
that the woman must have somehow invited this rape upon herself
by not wearing proper hejab or being promiscuous and flirty!
many Muslim nations, women still cannot run for any political office,
neither can they vote in any elections! Not that elections held
n these countries are true democratic elections, but only a show
displayed for the world to see! Take a look at Saudi Arabia and
mostly the rest of the Arabian Peninsula nations.
this day, in many Islamic countries, women do not even have the
basic rights such as obtaining drivers licenses and driving vehicles,
going to soccer stadiums, going to movies and theatres! Take a good
look at the Arabian Peninsula and particularly Saudi Arabia, the
most backward Islamic nation in the world, the most oppressive anti
women nation in the world and the central heart and birthplace of
this dangerous political ideology named Islam!
Islamic societies, women are basically segregated from men. They
must not mix with men. They have their own schools, section in public
transportations and mosques and many other public places.
are the same as cattle, sheep and properties of primarily
their fathers and secondarily their husbands.
And many more
I can keep on
going until the Hell freezes over but not enough time or paper to
put down all Islamic atrocities against the women!
So are you,
the Muslim women are aware of these facts and limitations?
If so, then are you justifying them by admitting that you are a
second class citizen and human being?
The Natural Conclusion
Women do not
have any rights whatsoever in Islam and Muslim nations.
the laws of the Islamic nations are to the true Islamic Laws of
Shari'a, the more the women are oppressed and treated as cattle!
Yes, true Islam
is what is happening in Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan and
Iraq. True Islam is what is happening in Palestine, Libya, Jordan,
Syria, Egypt, and the rest of the North Africa and Middle East.
The True Islam is what is happening specifically in the backward
nations of the Arabian Peninsula, especially in Saudi Arabia. Islamic
Republic of Iran maybe one of the few Theocracies in the world aside
Vatican; however, when it comes to women's rights, compare to Arab
nations, Iran is a progressed and advanced nation!
As bad as
women's rights are stumped on in Iran, but the true Islamic nations
of the Arab world are twenty times worst than Iran!
If Iran treats
women as second class citizens, then the many Arab nations treat
their women as stray dogs!
some Muslim countries are light on the Shari'a Laws, it does not
mean that they are behaving in accordance to the true Islam. True
Islam of Mohammed is Taliban in Afghanistan, were they behave the
same as the good old times of Mohammed in Saudi Arabia back in the
7th Century AD.
As I have stated
some Moderate Muslims; however, Islam in its nature is a Fundamentalist
and Reactionary Political Ideology, posing as a Religion.
I could understand why the older generation of Muslim women due
to tradition, lack of education, or the fact that they have just
accepted that they are inferior to men, may remain Muslim and accept
their place in Islamic nations. What I cannot comprehend is that
why modern women in Islamic societies take this insult and abuse
in the name of Religion and Islam?
a religion for the men to enslave the women.

I could have not put it better in to words,
than this excellent Graphic Art by my comrade Admzad.
to Muslim Women comes to mind:
you aware of the above facts, which are the exact orders of Quran
2. And if your answer is yes, then why are you still a Muslim
3. Are you too illiterate to comprehend your rights under
4. Have you accepted your roles as cattle in the Islamic
5. Or are you too dumb to comprehend that you are doormats
in Islamic societies?
6. Or have you convinced yourselves that you are too weak
to "Change" anything?
7. Specifically Persian Women inside IRI: Help me to understand
for Muslim Women remains:
why are you still Muslim?
