Discrimination and Oppression of Women


Let us look at the position of women in Islam:

1). A woman's testimony is worth half that of a man.
2). A woman inherits half of what a man inherits.
3). Women are places of cultivation for their husbands and can be beaten by them for disobedience.

Let's examine the Quran and the Hadiths:

4:11 - Allah instructs you concerning your children: for the male, what is equal to the share of two females.

2:282 - And bring to witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men [available], then a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses - so that if one of the women errs, then the other can remind her.

2:223 - Your wives are a place of sowing of seed for you, so come to your place of cultivation however you wish and put forth [righteousness] for yourselves. 

4:34 - Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. 

Sahih al-Bukhari 2658 - Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri: 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."

Sunan Abu-Dawud 2146 - Iyas ibn Abdullah ibn Abu Dhubab reported the Messenger of Allah as saying: Do not beat Allah's handmaidens, but when Umar came to the Messenger of Allah and said: Women have become emboldened towards their husbands, he (the Prophet) gave permission to beat them. Then many women came round the family of the Messenger of Allah complaining against their husbands. So the Messenger of Allah said: Many women have gone round Muhammad's family complaining against their husbands. They are not the best among you.

And if all of these weren't bad enough, here's the final straw. Physical abuse of women happens right in front of Muhammad by his closest companions and guess what he did? He laughed and watched.

Sahih Muslim 1478 - Jabir b. 'Abdullah (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Abu Bakr (Allah be pleased with him) came and sought permission to see Allah's Messenger. He found people sitting at his door and none amongst them had been granted permission, but it was granted to Abu Bakr and he went in. Then came 'Umar and he sought permission and it was granted to him, and he found Allah's Apostle sitting sad and silent with his wives around him. He (Hadrat 'Umar) said: I would say something which would make the Prophet laugh, so he said: Messenger of Allah, I wish you had seen (the treatment meted out to) the daughter of Khadija when you asked me some money, and I got up and slapped her on her neck. Allah's Messenger (mav peace be upon him) laughed and said: They are around me as you see, asking for extra money. Abu Bakr (Allah be pleased with him) then got up went to 'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) and slapped her on the neck, and 'Umar stood up before Hafsa and slapped her saying: You ask Allah's Messenger which he does not possess. They said: By Allah, we do not ask Allah's Messenger for anything he does not possess. Then he withdrew from them for a month or for twenty-nine days. Then this verse was revealed to him:" Prophet: Say to thy wives... for a mighty reward" (xxxiii. 28). 

Perhaps nothing could sum up Islam's attitude towards women better than Muhammad's "Farewell Sermon", found in the Siras and Hadiths. Women are compared to "domestic animals" men possess. Some other translators translate it is "prisoners with you".

Al-Tabari, Vol. 9, pp. 112-113 - "O people, you have a right over your wives and they have a right over you. You have [the right] that they should not cause anyone of whom you dislike to tread on your beds; and that they should not commit any open indecency (fahishah). If they do, then God permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain from [evil], they have the right to their food and clothing in accordance with custom (bi’l-ma‘ruf). Treat women well, for they are [like] domestic animals ('aw√•nin) with you and do not possess anything for themselves. You have taken them only as a trust from God, and you have made the enjoyment of their persons lawful by the word of God, so understand and listen to my words, O people.

NOTE: The above teachings are also found in Sirat Rasulallah by Ibn Ishaq as well as the hadiths - Jami At-Tirmidhi 104 and Sunan Ibn Majah 1851.

  2. Hei Rohit Balakrishnan!
    (1)Who are you? Are you Muslim? You are not, then why you talk about Islam,your article consists of
    BIG ERRORS because you cut and paste without honestly revailing the actual chronicle events of it! PROOF OF YOUR EVIL INTENTIONS AND IGNORANT! (2)Are you cleverer
    than God? If yes, then don't use God's soul, brain, eyes, mouth, nose etc created by God, create yourself! Don't eat food and drinks created by God, create yourself! Don't live in this earth created by God, create yourself!!! If you acknowledge God cleverer than yourself, then SHUT UP, don't judge God!!!
    (2)STOP translating Quran and giving opinions, you are NOT QUALIFIED!!!
    Before you open your mouth, read these :
    There are at least 11 sub-knowledge(besides 3 below) for a person (Muslim or not) to MASTER to qualified in interpreting the Holy Quran, read :

    (1)Tafsir refers to the accurate interpretation of the Quranic texts, such as Arabic grammar and syntax, Arabic literature and Quranic sciences (Uloom al-Quran). A commentator’s familiarity with modern fields of learning, like the pure sciences and social sciences can aid in making the Quranic explanations relevant to modern human society.

    (2)Usool at-Tafsir literally means “The Fundamental Principles of Quranic Interpretation”. It refers to those branches of knowledge which are necessary to provide the proper Quranic interpretation (tafsir). This branch of knowledge provides the step-by-step methodology of interpreting the Quran to ensure that interpretations are not merely the result of human whims and fancies.

    (3)Uloom al-Quran, refers to all the fields of knowledge which aid in elucidating the Quran. These include the following :

    1.Knowledge of tafsir (exegesis),
    2.Qiraa’aat (recitations),
    3.Ar-rasmul-‘Uthmaanee (the ‘Uthmaanic script),
    4.I‘jaaz al-Quran (miraculous aspects of the Quran),
    5.Asbaab an-nuzool (reasons for revelation),
    6.An-naasikh wal-mansookh (abrogating and abrogated verses),
    7.I‘raab al-Quran (Quranic grammar),
    8.Ghareeb al-Quran (unusual Quranic terms),
    9.Religious rulings,
    10.Arabic language
    11.Arabic literature.

    * Therefore, as you can see, you ARE NOT qualified to interpret the Quran(not even a single sentence or a word), so don't ever try!

    A lot of the ignorant interpretations are TOTALLY WRONG and so their and your opinions. Simply because you don't get from the Authentic Sources. Among Authentic Sources of books interpreting Quran by the Scholars :
    *Tafsir At Tabari.
    *Tafsir Al Qurtubi.
    *Tafsir Ibnu Kathir.
    *And Many More.
    *REFER TO THESE AUTHENTIC SOURCES, DON'T EVER USE YOUR LIMITED BRAIN. If brain can be use, God don't sent Prophet Muhammad pbuh to explain it(HADITH).(to be continue)

  3. (3)To translate let alone interpret Quran, (First and foremost)you MUST BE a Scholar(can you let someone build your house who know nothing about Building, building materials,soil, architectural, engineering, electrical, plumbing to give the least).(Second)MUST be a MUSLIM! Because only Muslims(to be exact BELIEVERS) are 'guided', others are NOT(to be exact, guided by SATAN). Most of your article is just cut and paste here and there, to suit your evil mission and intention. You neglect the chronicle orders of that particular event. You neglect other views of the Scholars who are more knowledgeable and more authority, which will give more accurate meanings of that particular subject mainly because YOU HAVE EVIL INTENTION AND MISSION! So DELETE YOUR WEBSITE, It's USELESS AND SHIT! Because it comes from (1)EVIL INTENTIONS AND MISSIONS.(2)Unqualified person.(3)Misleading and polluting Islam which is Sacred.
    (8)Rohit Balakrishnan, the difference between others talking about our belief and vice-versa is : Other beliefs especially liberalism and atheism does not holds responsibility and accountability, so why criticized? Our beliefs comes with responsibility and accountability, that it's our duty towards God to bring 'wrong' to 'right'.(9)Lastly, let settle this RIGHT NOW, to know who are right between us : In the middle of the night(no single one hear), you say SINCERELY(with humble and low voice(you only hear),(1)If you REALLY sincere to find the TRUTH say, "Oh God who creates the universe, show me your way".(2)If you don't believe in God, say "Oh God, if you exist, take my life now! YOU WILL SURELY FIND THE TRUTH!!!

  4. Hei Rohit Balakrishnan!(1)Who are you? Are you Muslim? You are not, then why you talk about Islam,your article consists of
    BIG ERRORS because you cut and paste without honestly revailing the actual chronicle events of it! PROOF OF YOUR EVIL INTENTIONS AND IGNORANT! (2)Are you cleverer
    than God? If yes, then don't use God's soul, brain, eyes, mouth, nose etc created by God, create yourself! Don't eat food and drinks created by God, create yourself! Don't live in this earth created by God, create yourself!!! If you acknowledge God cleverer than yourself, then SHUT UP, don't judge God!!!(3/1)In your article 'discrimination and Oppression of women', you cut and paste without honestly revailing the true event and make your own conclusion, proof of your evil intention and ignorant!!!(3/2)The actual chronicle event of Sahih Muslim 1478 was, Prophets Muhammad bpuh was
    quite sad when his wives demanding extra money that he don't have in hand( Muslims used to give Prophet alot of money that he would spend it all on the poor and the needy. So they wanted to take some of that money and spend it on them. But the Prophet refused and becames sad. He can also
    easily fulfil them because once the Angel even offer him to make the mountain became gold, even his enemies offer him every wealth(money, women etc)he don't want/need it), he want his wives to willingly live in this temporary world just be contented on what is necessity in life. He was sad don't
    know what to do(waiting for God's command). Among Prophet wives is Hafsa(Umar's daughter), Aisha(Abu Bakr's daughter). So somehow Umar and Abu Bakr came to know Prophet Muhammad situation and find him. Out of love of the Prophet, they slapped their daughter for what they've done.
    (3/3)The Prophet did not hit a women in his life and in another narration in Musnad Imam Ahmed the hadith says that the Prophet asked Umar and Abu Bakr to not hit their daughters.(3/4)As you can see that Umar(father of Hafsa) and Abu Bakr(father of Aisha) disciplined their daughters because they
    asked for extra money from the Prophet (PBUH) which he didn't had. From this hadith Scholars concluded that the father has the right to discipline his son/daughter if that would make things better. (3/5)From Musnad Ahmad 17927 : Nu’man ibn Basheer reported: Abu Baker came seeking permission to enter upon the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and he heard Aisha raising her voice over the Messenger of Allah. He entered and said, “O daughter of Umm Ruman! Are you raising your voice over the Messenger of Allah?” So the Prophet stood between them and when Abu Bakr left, he said to her, “Do you see how I saved you from him?” Then Abu Bakr again sought permission to enter upon the Prophet and he heard them both laughing. He entered and said, “O Messenger of Allah, allow me to share in your peace just as you have allowed me to share in your conflict.”(3/6)Now you see the clearer picture, not as what you 'portrait' it with EVIL INTENTION OF POLLUTING ISLAM!(4/1)In other article 'some shocking and evil teachings,are you judging God?(4/2)Are you cleverer than God?(to be continue)

  5. (4/3)If you have 3
    sons 3 daughters for example, from infant you take good care of them, providing good foods, attire, educations, accommodations, in short you provide everythings. Now the youngers are 15 years old. If you translate what you've spent in monetary terms, total +-Millions of dollars! Suddenly one of them deny that you are his/her biological father. You still treat him/her well as other of your child, even you give him/her more(so that he/she ponder). Most people(family,neighbour,friends)know about this. Will
    they say you are bad if your child that acknowledged you are his/her father slap your other child(which denied you as his/her biological father), and you keep quiet? Of course not! Most even suggest the least punishment is ask him/her to leave your house, the deserve punishment should be taking his/her life for being ungrateful, don't some angry parent/s said to her/his unobedient son/daughter "If I knew before you will be like this(whatever), I will kill you while you're still infant".
    (4/4)You mentioned Sunan an-Nasai 4070, which tells about someone killing someone who slander Prophet infront of him, and the Prophet said, "I bear witness that her blood is permissible.". As an ignorant you don't know that what the Prophet said is all agreed by Allah(permissible- see Quran AnNajm verse 3-4), otherwise Allah will correct him right away just like mentioned in Quran Al-Abasa verse 1-11. If God permit it, who are we to argue it? Unless you are cleverer and you create your own brain! (5)The rest you just cut and paste here and there, to suit your evil mission and intention. You
    neglect the chronicle orders of that particular event. You neglect other views of the Scholars who are more knowledgeable and more authority, which will give more accurate meanings of that particular subject mainly because YOU HAVE EVIL INTENTION AND MISSION!(will be continue)
