Muslim leader: ‘The man must hit his wife because women are stupid creatures’

More proof that Islam is all about enslaving and abusing women. In reality, it seems that Islam was devised largely so Muslim men could subjugate women to their hearts’ content. When I post items about Islam, I often get outraged ranters who accuse me of all manner of asinine and false calumny, such as that I am a “Jew,” a “Zionist,” a “NWO mouthpiece,” a “Muslim hater,” etc., ad nauseam. I am none of these things, including and especially the latter, because I view most Muslims as victims of Islam, of these cruel savages who deem themselves “religious leaders.”

One of my main reasons for exposing Islam is because of its virulent women-hatred and enslavement. I want no part of such anti-woman vileness, and I hope most women worldwide don’t want it either. I am also confident that most men – those who are wise and mature – also don’t want this Stone Age misogynistic cult to enslave and abuse all women worldwide. That’s all there is to my motives.

The above misogynistic rant is not at all an isolated event, as should be obvious from one look at how women have been treated in Muslim-dominant countries for many centuries. Indeed, there are many other such Muslim leaders making similar comments. They base their sexist views on the Koran, relevant quotes from which can be seen below.

It should also be kept in mind that one of the main purposes of the Islamic women’s slave clothing or “veil,” such as the niqab, hijab and burkha, is to prevent others from seeing the physical abuse endured by Muslim women, such as bruises, cuts and broken bones – a major reason for civilized societies to ban this misogynistic dress.

Sexist quotes from the Koran

“They ask you about menstruation. Say: ‘It is an indisposition. Keep aloof from women during their menstrual periods and do not approach them until they are clean again; when they are clean, have intercourse with them whence God enjoined you….'” Quran 2:222

“Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please.” Quran 2:223

“Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them.” Quran 4:34

“A male shall inherit twice as much as a female.” Quran 4:11

“Call in two male witnesses from among you, but if two men cannot be found, then one man and two women whom you judge fit to act as witnesses…” Quran 2:282

“[Forbidden to you are] married women, except those whom you own as slaves.” Quran 4:24

  1. Well they wanted to up lift the “serpents=Allah and the rest the serpent ilk” out of the very bondage they were poured out a test tube for and went with it into unfavored lands with them. No they it shows it’s true face HUH! Hate say told you so but told you so, believe the line was your men are just jealous come and be with us we are not this way you shall be put on high place among us. And now they want the rest of the European women to slave for their dark designs.

    I had always said creating these creatures is wrong, well now who’s sorry about up lifting some creature that should never had been?

    And yet still the cover up of history goes on! And look at the ugly mixed species we see all over the world, a culling is called for indeed needed!

    When will you ever learn not to play GOD and make these kinds of mistakes, they are not human even though they are based from a type of design that resembles structurally anyway, a human.

  2. @Gene….have you been smoking again?

    1. @ Ferret/weasel? How small and weak this “@_____”inter-webs jargon is.

      Never have actually found any effects of such, though I have not to care for ay such things, you are allowed to! Well if you don’t take the hints and go look them up, to bad!

      I find my own expression, but if you can’t handle it say so.

      If you can’t be original be a poet if not a poet be creative in speech or writing!

      And if you do not get the lesson Ahh sad.

  3. Acharya,

    keep shining the light on these charlatens – the disrespect these pigs have for women is breath-taking (and not in a good way).

    Keep up your good work. I visit your site everyday, thankyou.

    1. I just wanted to say not all Muslims are like this and were taught differently. We were taught that men and women are equal and a man has no right to strike his wife or any female for that matter, don’t believe everything you here

      1. You are so correct most people take another’s views as their own if you do not research that which you read you are just as blind and vain as those WHOM have maliciousness in there heart’s to persuade people who are not GUIDED RIGHTLY to this so called individual who preaches hate before you be judge jury and excutioner ask yourself what have your people done over the milenia to advance mankind as a whole instead of STEALING murdering raping MEN AND WOMEN WHO WASN’T CAUCASIAN SO BEFORE YOU JUDGE PEOPLE TAKE A LONG HARD LOOK AT YOURSELVES BEFORE YOU MAKE A MISGUIDED STATEMENT TOWARDS A RACE OF PEOPLE!!!!

  4. I’m sorry, but I don’t know who you are, and I didn’t “rightfully moderate” your message, although you are correct that it would be my right.

    I also don’t know what you’re talking about, but I can assure you I’m not making any mistake about Jesus or confusing him with anything other than what he clearly is: A mythical compilation of pre-Christian characters, some “real people” and others not.

    A composite of 20 “people,” whether historical or mythical, is no one.

    Moreover, you appear not to know at all about the rampant sexism within Christianity. It isn’t much an improvement over Islam. Yes, the following quotes are from Paul, but if you believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, then you have to accept they are also God/Jesus’s views. Moreover, if Jesus is the God of the cosmos, he could easily have straightened out all this error in his name.

    Christian Sexism and Slavery ([url][/url])

    Wives, be submissive to your husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands. (Ephesians 5:21-24)

    ..the women should keep silence in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says. If there is anything they desire to know, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church. (1 Corinthians 14:34-35)

    Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness. I permit no woman to teach or have authority over men; she is to keep silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty. (1 Timothy 11:15)

  5. 2u only Acharya…
    …my last appearing on your website comments :
    so Islam is derogative towards women … what a news !
    And so Islam mistreats woman ; …when Jesus -the one who didn’t exist you say…- said “let the one who never sinned throw her the first stone !” to the alduterin woman…
    Jesus was the friend/lover/defender of the feminine principle.
    Whether you like it or not Acharya.
    No one will read this, since this the messages here are being rightfully moderated : so I tell you, beloved Acharya, that you are making a fundamental mistake. You are confusing Christ with what the Church made of what it reconstructed from the original story.
    And the Founding Fathers wrote “Liberty” in His Name…

  6. The Lagacy of Arab-Islam in Africa
    ( Do not be put off by the length of the post. I am doing this to spread the truth to Muslims and non – Muslims all around the world. This is a campaign, of sorts, against modern day slavery and I do this to reach as many people as possible. I do this as a peaceful person.)

    People are aware of the three centuries of Trans Atlantic slavery by the white European Christians, but there is another injustice in the world that many people do not know of. For the past 1400 years, there has been another slave trade fueled by Muhammad Arabia and it is still going on today. Gathering the facts between Trans Atlantic and Muslim Arabian slavery of the black people, I found that the later is the worst of the two detestable evils.
    Alembilla (John) Azumah wrote the book titled, The Legacy of Arab-Islam in Africa. In the book, Azumah proves this statement, “The worst…institution of the Black Africa slave trade was indicated, refined, perpetuated, and implemented by the Muhammad Arabs and later aided and abetted by the Black converts to Muhammad Islam.” What makes this modern day slave trade nearly undetected outside of its enactment in the Muhammad Islam culture is that it is religiously sanctioned by the Koran. The Koran announces ‘all non-Muslims are slaves.’ Any one who took a glance at a history book knows that there have been numerous holy wars where human beings are considered fair game which gives them the assumed right to rape and pillage the captured people and Africa nor anyone else is no different to the Muslim slave trader.
    A pre-eminent Islamic mid evil Historian and social thinker captured the supremest ideology of Muhammad Islam specifically naming people of African decent,” People of the Negro Nations submit to slavery due to their attributes that are similar to animals.”
    Upon my research I found disgusting statistics: 2 out of 3 African slaves brought to Islam and other Muslim territories are women and girls used for sex, the men, who are castrated, are forced into military service. Statistics show that at the moment, more than 28 million are enslaved; 80%-90% have died in the six major routs from the Sahara Desert, the coast of the Red Sea and East Africa and Indian Ocean.
    It has been estimated by records spanning 14 centuries that a total of 140 million Africans have been enslaved by Islam as compared to the 11 million during the 300 year Trans Atlantic slave trade to the Americas. The African Islamic slave trade is not fueled by racial supremacy alone, but religious and political sanctions.
    I had never heard of the Muhammad Islam African slave trade until a short time ago. I, like most people who are not within the trade, am shocked to hear this. I also learned that most people including Muslims are not aware of this. Knowing of the growing Muslim faith even among African Americans in the United States proves that the 1400 year crime against humanity and civil rights is kept under the shroud of fear, denial, and hatred. This gives pause to reflect upon Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream,” speech were at the close his voice raises as he said, “Free at last free at last. Thank GOD almighty we are free at last!” The irony is enough to make me sick as I share in the responsibility of knowing the truth. As more people of all races and religions are made aware of this and as more people are held accountable for the un-ethical practice, then perhaps one man’s dream will no longer be deferred.

    This is the source that opened my eyes.

  7. Damn True…I guess
    I think Islam men think they are inferior to women. Yet the Koran Mentions Mary…..the islamic Mary more than any other person in the koran. The Koran also states that both adam and eve sinned evenly if I might recall. Yet Islams calling of jesus as a slave of allah seems downright incompetant. Slavery is mankinds worse and formiddable sin. It deprives ones life away and gives it to the lost and dark minded. Women are considered as slaves in the arab world. The muslims believe that women are easily sinfull. Yet men are the ones that comiitt horrible atrocities many battles in history have been fought over women. Yet those that start conflict are men. Women are more mature than men I believe. They also mature faster physically. Yet Women have less rights in politics, and the third world countries. I thought we would have a women for a president before a african american man . Sounds racy…But I think women know much more about society because women are considerably the birth givers. They are the mothers of society and they shouldn’t be used as slaves ,they should be thanked. As well as honored. Every year a child is being killed in the womb most likely a girl in China. In the arab world women have very few freedoms. In Christianity Only Mary mother of Jesus and mary Magdalen was at the crucifixion and the koran mentions Mary more than any person in the text. Does that strike you a little bit Odd?

  8. um no thats not how it works men cannot beat women in any religion that abuse and we are not stupid creatures i dont no were yall bums get chyall info from but its dumb and another thing in islam Allah say he created all people equal u cant tell nobody that u no mor than god and u mak da rules fool who u think u r, plz. if yal think that u aint wrth crap no way go get a brain and wat kinda websit is this any way free thinkin this is crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁

    1. Yes we all know muslims believe ‘free thinking’ is crap. What do you mean ‘where do we get our information?” you cannot see above the islamic scholars quoting from the QU’RAN.

      Mohammed did INDEED approve of wife beating, even including a remark that you should not beat her and have intercourse with her the same day, like you would a SLAVE (because it’s okay to beat them then rape them)
      But I doubt you ever read the qu’ran (it seems as though you can barely read or write) anyway, you’re really stupid.

  9. i’m a muslim… but that’s not what i believe,
    that’s not what islam thought about how to treat a woman/wife.

    b’cause in Koran, Allah says: “And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put [b]love[/b] and [b]mercy[/b] between [b]your[/b] ([b]hearts[/b]): verily in that are [b]Signs[/b] for those who reflect.” (Quran: Ar-Rum 21)

    “Live with them on a footing of [b]kindness [/b] and [b]equity[/b]. If ye take a dislike to them it may be that ye dislike a thing, and Allah brings about through it a great deal of good.” (Quran: An-Nisaa 19)

    “Men are the [b]protectors [/b] and [b]maintainers [/b] of [b]women[/b], because Allah has given the one more strength than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore, the [b]righteous [/b] women are [b]devoutly obedient[/b] and guard in the husband’s absence what Allah would have them to guard. As to those women on whose part you fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them ([b]first[/b]), ([b]next[/b]), refuse to share their beds, ([b]and last[/b]) beat them ([b]lightly[/b]); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance); for Allah is most High and Great (above you all). If you fear a breach between them twain, appoint (two) arbiters, one from his family and the other from hers. If they wish for peace, Allah will cause their reconciliation; for Allah has full knowledge and is acquainted with all things.” (Quran: An-Nisaa 34-35)

    don’t believe what people said, whoever they are… learn from the source >> The Koran and Hadith

    Thanks, wassalammu’alaykum :cheer:

    1. Yeah so, it says right in that line that you may ‘beat’ your wife. So what are you talking about? You deny it says that you may beat your wife, but there it clearly states that you can.

      Mohammed said a lot of things about women, and a lot of the things he said about them were good, and a lot were horrible. Give me a break, he owned slaves that he had sex with and he and men were allowed to choose women from the wives of men they had either just caught or killed, either to be a slave or a wife. Even if they were already married.

      I have read the quran & hadiths, your ‘learn from the source’ or ‘that’s not true, you need to learn more’ line is one of the most frequent lines used in the denial of what is taught by the Qu’ran. If you don’t believe that men have full control over women & the right to beat them, then you should quit islam, because you are not a ‘good muslim’

  10. Thank you. You didn’t even read this article before you assumed that we don’t know about the Koran and hadiths, did you?

    Right in this article, I have quoted the Koran, which I know very well:

    [b]Sexist quotes from the Koran[/b]

    “They ask you about menstruation. Say: ‘It is an indisposition. Keep aloof from women during their menstrual periods and do not approach them until they are clean again; when they are clean, have intercourse with them whence God enjoined you….'” Quran 2:222

    “Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please.” Quran 2:223

    “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them.” Quran 4:34

    “A male shall inherit twice as much as a female.” Quran 4:11

    “Call in two male witnesses from among you, but if two men cannot be found, then one man and two women whom you judge fit to act as witnesses…” Quran 2:282

    “[Forbidden to you are] married women, except those whom you own as slaves.” Quran 4:24


    Menstruating women are unclean, and men must stay away from them. Women are men’s “fields,” and men can have sex with them whenever they want. Men are superior to women and have authority over them, while women must obey men or risk being beaten. A woman is worth one-half of a man. Muslim men can own sex slaves.

    The fact that you think Quran 4:34 is a good thing is extremely disturbing. Women only need “protectors” and “maintainers” where they are not allowed to develop themselves, where they are ENSLAVED under male domination. And no man has ANY right to beat a woman, regardless of whether or not the beating is lightly. We don’t need your “guardianship,” thank you.

    If you think the other quotes you provided override these others, good luck convincing millions of your Muslim brethren, who most assuredly subscribe to the mentality exposed here.

    Indeed, good luck with cleaning up the misogyny and women-hatred in the Muslim world. Yes, you will need to go to the source and start with the Koran and hadiths.

    We appreciate it.

    And, while you are at it, ask yourself why you are Muslim? Did you choose to be a Muslim? Did your ancestors? Or were they forced to become Muslim after their lands were invaded and they or their descendants were robbed, raped, brutalized and killed?

    Do you know the history of Islam in your country? Are you embracing the religion of invaders who decimated your ancestors?

    1. Arabian Muslim women

      I want to say that there is a significant difference between interpreting of the holy Quran and translating ..

      Interpreting is not as easy as you and most people think about .. One Quranic verses can consists of several challenging dimensions: language dimension, science dimension, history dimension, social and psychological dimension ..
      and That’s why it was difficult to early Arabs to make one verses when they were mastery in language skills. Because they figure out how the verses was complex !
      I’m Arabian woman so I know the language structure behind some of Quran verses,

      And I will address two points one from the language perspective and the other from the health perspective

      First regarding your claim about the
      “Sexist quotes from the Koran

      “They ask you about menstruation. Say: ‘It is an indisposition. Keep aloof from women during their menstrual periods and do not approach them until they are clean again; when they are clean, have intercourse with them whence God enjoined you….'” Quran 2:222

      “Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please.” Quran 2:223

      1. the verses” women is your field ” it is a “figure of speech” in which:

      the conception process during intercourse is largely similar to implanting seeds on the field.

      1. The male here is representing the farmer because the sperms are pushed by male toward and fertilised the ovum and not the opposite,
      2. farmer who have the seeds is controlling the kind of plants he want, and the similarity here is refer to that only male is controlling the sex of the baby because he got both sex gens x and y.
      4. 1. fertilised ovum when it implant its self in the wall of the uterus is largely similar to seeds when implanted in the field, the female uterus here is representing the field that nourish the fertilised ovum till it become full baby..

      ” using farmer and the field expression is very sweet and intelligent choice from creators who knows better than any one the role of male and female in the conception process ” fertilising, implanting, determining baby sex, nourishing”

      And before finishing this point I want to add that the phrase which comes after this ” go to your field when ever you please has been translated and interpreted by you wrongly if you know the Arabic language structure you will find that this phrase consist of two massages
      First it’s informing the male that he is controlling the process of conception. Secondly it’s directed to BOTH ( husband and wife) by informing them that there is no limit either in time, or place or position ” to fulfil their intimate needs.

      The second point I want to address is the reason behind why not allowing for vaginal intercourse during period time. This point is not as you mentioned that it refer to women is being filthy ( Muslim men are sleeping with their wives hugging them, kissing them during their period time ?)
      The actual reason which it’s been missed by you It’s to protect women:

      1. The blood of the period has been described literally in Quran as grimy unclean NOT THE WOMEN and if you revise the basic health information you will be surprised to know that the blood during the period is full of bacteria shedding from vagina wall, dead tissue and mucus from endometrium wall ..etc
      2. you will be surprised too if you find out that the uterus in normal days is sealed with mucus blog on the cervical and is opening only for limit time during ovulation ..
      3. During period time the cervical is opened allowing the blood to follow out.
      4. The female immune system drop during period time.
      5. Intercourse will push up the unclean, full of germs blood back to the opened, unsealed and unprotected uterus … Which consequently can make serious infection and other health problem.

      Can you understand now why it’s not recommended to make intercourse during period ( TO PROTECT THE WOMAN) of course you cannot get all this basic health information 1500 years ago .. It’s only the creator who knows the physiological aspect of the women can do …

      1. Thank you, but your apologies ring hollow. It is not we “kuffar” who are misinterpreting the Quran but millions of devout Muslims worldwide who are following it literally. Are you saying that these devout Muslims are misinterpreting the Quran? Please tell them that.

        You can start here: ([url][/url])

        Here is what those Muslims at the link above assert is Islamic law, according to the Quran and hadiths.

        Honor killings
        Supremacy/global domination
        Limb amputations
        Genital mutilation
        Death to apostates
        Forced conversion
        Sex slavery and rape
        Women enslavement
        Wife beating
        Child marriage/rape
        Brutality against homosexuals
        Bigotry and hatred
        Robbery and pillage
        Extortion of nonbelievers
        Animal cruelty
        Prohibition of music/singing
        Destruction of pre-Islamic antiquities
        Etc., ad nauseam

        I have zero interest in the nauseating nonsense about women’s menstruation. It’s frankly none of anyone else’s business, and this ideology truly is misogynistic and backward. That’s all there is to it. Apologies not accepted.

        You should do yourself a favor and study the pre-Islamic era in many parts of the world. There were GODDESSES and DIVINE FEMININE figures that have been utterly destroyed by the patriarchal, male-dominant Abrahamic cultus, including and especially Islam. Women simply have no idea what they have lost with the dominance of these manmade cults.

        1. Arabian Muslem woman and proud

          [b]I have zero interest in the nauseating nonsense about women’s menstruation[/b].

          Many thanks, you have clearly shown to all blog’s readers who is really feel disgusting to a normal physiological function of women’s body. I wonder who is disrespecting the woman in this case???

          [b]It’s none of anyone else’s business, [/b]

          If it is so, why you mentioned it in first place???

          [b]and this ideology truly is misogynistic and backward[/b].

          Umm, now the scientific facts are backword!!
          Feeling sorry for you that your low IQ and egoism didn’t make you accept the scientific facts!! as you think it was hallow?!

          However, it was not for you only !
          There is many readers who will read and judge by them self !!

          [b]You should do yourself a favor [/b]

          Definitely I will do my self favor by not wasting more time on you again…

          1. You have clearly shown to this blog’s readers that Muslim fanatics constantly misinterpret the words’ of others in order to raise up strawmen and shore up their faith at all costs.

            My point was that I don’t want to hear about the nauseating ISLAMIC nonsense about menstruation. I have no problem listening to commentary on menstruation from [i]women [/i]who actually know something about it, not deranged men who don’t have a clue.

            Islam is a male-dominant cult of misogyny. No woman wrote the commentary on menstruation in the Quran or hadiths – ignorant, sexist men did.

            If you would like some [i]real [/i]information about menstruation, I highly recommend the books of a FEMALE SCHOLAR by the name of Barbara G. Walker, whose book [i]Man Made God[/i] ([url][/url]) I published.

            Barbara is also the author of [i]The Women’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets[/i], which discusses menstruation and many other female aspects in life.

            So, all you have done here is prove that you are fanatical and that you do not know whose blog you are posting on.

            You would be much better off if you were to stop listening to MEN about women and menstruation, etc., especially those from the seventh or eighth centuries.

            And your foolish “low IQ” comment is just an ad hom insult attempting to badger me into your demented male-dominant cult of barbarism.

            “The honour of Islam lies in insulting kufr and kafirs [infidels]. One who respects the kafirs dishonours the Muslims… The real purpose of levying jiziya [infidel tax] on them is to humiliate them to such an extent that they may not be able to dress well and to live in grandeur. They should constantly remain terrified and trembling. It is intended to hold them under contempt and to uphold the honour and might of Islam.” -Sufi saint Ahmad Sirhindi (1564-1624), letter No. 163

            I’m not the one with a low IQ here. Nor am I trying to insult a stranger into my deranged cult of misogyny and violence.

            And you completely ignore the rest of my comments in order to spew your hate speech. Not very impressive. What about all the horrible behaviors I cited as part of Islam? You don’t care about those hideous acts of violence – your only concern is to insult me. I’m sorry, but such behavior is sociopathic and immoral.

            Now, try studying pre-Islamic religion and its divine feminine, which was utterly destroyed by Islam. Start with Walker’s books.

            Good luck freeing yourself from this oppression.

          2. Muslim men are discusting. They treat their woman like object.They could buy up to 4 woman and fuck them when they feel like. They have no morals and no disancy. On the name of god they abuse women as they please.This stupid woman are so uneducated and so ignorant that can not survive with out a muslim pig.Fuck you dirty imoral and low life people.You all are going to pay for your sins.

        2. Right On!!!! Thats it in a “nut” shell. islam hates, and hates more. Thats all they do is hate and kill everyone and lie lie lie about their stupid cult. The “religion of peace”, my ass.

  11. Check out this
    Do not Spread messages which are wrong and taken wrong meaning from Quran,

    Please read below what Hindu, Jews, Christian, Bhuddhism & Sikh religion say about Menstruation.

    Most Christian denominations do not follow any specific rituals or rules related to menstruation. Some Christian denominations, including many authorities of the Eastern Orthodox Church (also known as the Russian, Ukrainian, or Greek Orthodox Church, distinct from the Roman Catholic Church), advise women not to receive communion during their menstrual period.[14] Other denominations follow the rules laid out in the Holiness Code section of Leviticus, somewhat similar to the Jewish ritual of Niddah.
    The traditional Islamic interpretation of the Qur’an forbids intercourse, but not physical intimacy, during a woman’s menstrual period.[15] During menstrual period, women are excused from performing prayers and fasting. Women are also not viewed as disgusting or less than because of this. In the Qur’an it is considered a “hurt” and women should not be pestered during this time. Respect for women on their cycle is valued. Although they are restricted from entering the mosque, they are encouraged to be present at religious services such as Eid Al Adha or Eid Al Fitr. After the period, a spiritual bath, which is also required of both partners after sex, Ghusl, is also required before prayer and fasting may continue.
    In Judaism, a ritual exclusion called niddah applies to a woman while menstruating and for about a week thereafter, until she immerses herself in a mikvah (ritual bath). During this time, a married couple must avoid sexual intercourse and physical intimacy. Orthodox Judaism forbids women and men from even touching or passing things to each other during this period. While Orthodox Jews follow this exclusion, many Jews in other branches of the religion do not.
    [edit]Orthodox Christianity
    Conservative/Traditionalist members of the Orthodox Church observe the ancient practice of abstaining from Holy Communion during menstruation.[14] This is a fairly common practice throughout Greece and Russia and other historically Orthodox Christian countries. However in most non-Orthodox countries—especially in Europe and North America—a sizable majority of women do not practice this ancient rule, although a minority of women still do. In fact, many Orthodox Christian women are unaware of the ancient practice of abstaining from Holy Communion due to menstruation.
    [edit]Dharmic religions
    Hindus in India tend to view menstruation, especially first menstruation or menarche, as a positive aspect of a girl’s life. In South India, girls who experience their menstrual period for the first time are given presents and celebrations to mark this special occasion,[16]. However most of the Hindu girls refrain from visiting temples during their cycle. Also in orthodox families, the menstruating women are asked to stay away from domestic activities for a period of 4 days , indirectly a form of rest during the blood loss period.
    Hindus in Nepal have a more negative view, traditionally keeping women isolated during menstruation, when women who are menstruating are not allowed in the household for a period of 3 nights. A recent court ruling in Nepal has abolished this practice[17].
    In Buddhism (Theravada or Hinayana) menstruation is viewed as “a natural physical excretion that women have to go through on a monthly basis, nothing more or less”. However in Japanese Buddhism [18] menstruating women are banned from attending temples.[18]
    Guru Nānak, the founder of Sikhism, condemned the practice of treating women as impure while menstruating.[19] In Sikhism, the menstrual cycle is not considered a pollutant. Certainly, it can have a physical and physiological effect on the woman. Nonetheless, this is not considered a hindrance to her wanting to pray or accomplish her religious duties fully. The Guru makes it very clear that the menstrual cycle is a God given process. The blood of a woman is required for the creation of any human being. ‘By coming together of mother and father are we created, By union of the mother’s blood and the father’s semen is the body made. To the Lord is the creature devoted, when hanging head downwards in the womb; He whom he contemplates, for him provides.’ (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, pg. 1013).
    The requirement of the Mothers’ blood is fundamental for life. Thus, the menstrual cycle is certainly an essential and God given biological process. In other faiths blood is considered a pollutant. However, the Guru rejects such superstitious ideas. Those who are impure from within are the truly impure ones. ‘Should cloth be reckoned impure if blood-stained, How may minds of such be deemed pure, As blood of mankind suck? Says Nanak : With a pure heart and tongue God’s Name you utter : All else is worldly show, and false deeds.’ (Guru Granth Sahib Ji, pg. 140).

    In the Old Testament of the Bible there were Jewish restrictions around menstruating women (in Leviticus 12). Menstruating women were unclean for 7 days and couldn’t have sex with their husbands (men who had a seminal discharge were also considered unclean, until nightfall). A woman had to purify herself after she finished menstruating, until then anything that she touched would be unclean (as would anyone who had touched her, or had been touched by a person who had been in contact with her).

    In the Bible, Eve’s curse was pain in childbirth, not menstruation. When Eve disobeys God he tells her, “I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you” (Genesis 3). Even though Eve’s curse (in the Bible) was not menstruation, some of the early Christian writers did associate menstruation with women’s sinful nature and Eve’s disobedience. Pope Gregory the Great (d. 604) praised menstruating women who chose not to receive communion and stated that, “The menstrous habit in women is no sin, seeing that it occurs naturally; yet that nature itself has been so vitiated as to seem polluted even without human volition.”

    During the first 500 years of Christianity menstruation was not considered a curse & there were no restrictions placed on it, however after that some Christian leaders started to see anything to do with sex as bad, including mensturation and pregnancy (read more here). In many churches, menstruating women no longer permitted to enter the church or to take communion. This menstrual taboo was continued by theologians into the Middle Ages.

    Menstruating women were not allowed to have sex with their husbands – it was believed that menstrual blood was noxious & would corrupt semen, resulting in the conception of disabled children. Phyisicians in the 16th century (such as Thomas Sanchez and Cardinal Cajetan) began to reject this fear of menstrual blood, and started to view it as harmless. Until quite recently, however, most Christians theologians continued to view sex during menstruation as a sin.

      You might want to tell that to the [i]Muslims [/i]who are spreading these messages – please feel free to tell THEM that THEY are taking the “wrong meaning” from the Koran.

      I’m sure they will appreciate your input very much.

      Thanks for the enlightening info about these other misogynistic religions. Now we can toss the whole caboodle into the rubbish bin, along with misogynistic Islam.

      1. In response to Ahmed
        Many of the religions that you referred to may have had traditions of one kind or another in years past, but unlike your Muslim religion, they modernize, they change with the times. Islam stays stuck in the medieval mentality of the woman hating psychopath Mohammed, who had sex with the dead Fatima in her coffin, raped children, had married and divorced so many wives, there are many differing opinions on how many he actually had, he boasts of having sex with all of them in one night. he boasted of the sex he had with concubines, he also boasted of having sex with slaves. There are several references to his obsession with fondling his wives while they were menstruating. What kind of “holy” man would have this written about him? The answer is not a holy man. Not a good man at all. He had absolutely 0-zero respect for his wives. And this is just for starters. He was also a criminal in every way possible. And Muslim men think that he is the perfect man and that all men should try to be like him? NONE of this came from anywhere else but just a small part of the haddith. All you have to do is read your haddith and Qu’ran to learn what a narcissistic psychopath he was. I read them and they are truly dull through about half of them and disgusting through the rest. Reading them cover to cover, is truly the best deterrent to Islam. Beautiful poetry-NOT! Disgusting & gross yes. 😮

  12. masters of deflection!
    I’ve had a jolly good read through these comments for the past hour and would really love to emphasize- as you have many, many times, Achayra, that these ignoramuses and/or muslim apologists really CANNOT debate, or defend themselves without waving their fingers at other religions, despite how many times you tell them we are clearly discussing Islam, and NOT Christianity, etc…. and constantly ignore the fact that the argument is not, at heart, a word by word textual analysis of the scriptures, but a condemnation of the fact they are STILL CARRIED OUT as part of the politics and law of a society….whenever a society meters out its punishments according to a religious doctrine, how can any member of that given society claim freedom of speech? I have just moved to Australia from a small northern town in the UK where I have experienced first hand the damages that allowing these apologists to paint us all with the ‘Islamaphobia’ brush (and here I speak about friends and associates who are white british too- who simply refuse to acknowledge the damaging impact Islam has on our own society and constantly condemn me whilst never having had to walk home through a Muslim dominated area amidst racist and sexist daily harassment from Muslim men….or watch their friend being forced into an arranged marriage or else suffer the wrath of her family…and her father’s fists….of course other people do this without a religious overtone, but in these cases religion WAS brought into them). Look up the stats for the number of rapes by taxi drivers and men in cars over the last ten years….nearly ALL from countries of muslim origin…I have first hand experience…and its not what they tried to do to me that stuck with me, but the racist, bigotted, Koran-fuelled sh*t coming out of their mouths. And the police were too scared to do anything…..too afraid of being labelled as an anti-Islamist. (or racist….and people seem to think that Islam is a race..?! mindboggling!).

    My views are based upon experience AND learning…and I have Muslim friends who share my views.

  13. man must hit woman
    👿 can you say whether your god is male or female.if it has no shape it will not have organs,if it does not have organs it will not have a heart or brain,if it does not have the above organs it will not have feelings.without feelings one cannot love,if there is no love there is no need of a pair.then how can you say your god is a he,how can you claim superior above women making use of their tenderness by overwhelming with your power which do not have feelings can give respect to any species existing in this have to call your god in neutral gender.

  14. As an American male who has not had any teachings on the Muslim life style or the Koran, I have always been shocked by the site of a Muslim man walking ahead of a burkha clad woman. How different it is from a man walking hand in hand with his smiling, happy, secure wife. I pity them both for the ignorance they both openly display. A few years ago, while sitting with a friend in a shopping mall, a burkha clad woman walked by, and my friend said “there goes the epitome of modern day slavery”. That comment really woke me up to the reality of man made religion versus true heart focused, God centered, love based spirituality. I’ve learned that any time you have “man conquering man(or woman)” behaviors, you have ignorance, hatred, fear,division, slavery, poverty, communism and death. I first saw all these things during my three tours of combat in Vietnam but, didn’t understand the full significance until I began comparing the Koran teachings to the Bible. We who live in the freedom of America have been insulated from the horrors that are so prevalent in many other parts of the world. I sadly believe we are becoming captives to our own ignorance of what “freedom” means, and what it costs.

  15. I go to a western secondary school n we wear short skirts or shorts with a shirt as our uniform. these muslim girls came up n starts to ask me if I ever feel embarrassed about myself I said no…n their ans was u should be cause u are HARAM!!( IMPURE) . I was like uhmmmm ur in our country n u do not have any right to say that to us…. we have the freedom of choice. AND THEN GUESS WHAT? SHE GOES ON 2 SAY THAT ISLAM WILL ONE DAY DOMINATE THE WORLD N I WOULD BE WISHING THAT I WAS MORE OBEDIANT TO ALLAH!!! LIKE WTH? next day she said sorry and then we talked for like 10 mins and then she told me to read the holy Koran which she brought from hime for me I refused and she insisted again and again n then she yells UR GONNA GO TO HELL. so u see its not only the males that are dangerous but we have to be careful with females as well. but having said that it is not their fault they have been so badly brainwashed by their parents and male relatives. now they really think that this is the proper way of life…..

    who cares if all Muslims aren’t like that? their religion teaches their people to behave this way!!!! please do not be brain washed by the so called kindness u get from muslims , they will never change ( u can take a muslim away from islam but u can never EVER TAKE ISLAM WITHIN THEM) don’t just research crap articles and believe everything they say. DO NOT BE BRAINWASHED INTO BELIEVING THAT NOT ALL MUSLIMS ARE BAD!!!!! they are its just a mtter of whenthey show their true colours???? wanna know ow????? ask them what they think about men having authority over women….ask them what they think about other religions and other people believes…… I am telling u mate they will explode with anger like a bomb if u refuse to agree on their view points.

  16. im a muslim girl and i regret that i was born as one is all i can say. not that i believe in any other religion. im an aethiest born as a muslim. i am a aethiest because i dont want to be treated like a dog. i wear what i want, i do what i wish. my sympathies to all the muslim ladies out there! i hope u realize soon that the entire quran is a work of fiction. heaven and hell is here. dont make ur life hell her to attain that heaven which you never know may not exist at all! science gives a perfect xplanation of how life evolved on earth and how it will end….dwell on it….maybe you will end up at least living your life instead of being suppressed brutally. i have the tag of a “muslim” on my passport. so i have evry right to say about my religion coz if a non muslim points out the sad facts aout our religion he will be attacked and killed and what not! god save u ppl

  17. I am a muslim girl. I wear veil and feel more secure from wild men of society who stare at women like animal.its my own choice not compelled by my father or brother or from my husband.Rape ratio is more in non muslim countries as compared to muslim ones.first check ur self and than spread propaganda about our Islam.

    1. “Rape ratio is more in non muslim countries as compared to muslim ones.first check ur self and than spread propaganda about our Islam.”

      Who are you trying to fool with such utter non-sense? Everybody outside the muslim world already knows rape doesn’t get reported much in muslim countries … for example:

      “Rape in Afghanistan is a crime which can be legally prosecuted, but in practice it is very rarely reported, because of the immense risks that women face if they report it. Rape victims in the country face a double risk of being subjected to violence: on one hand they can become victims of honor killings perpetrated by their families, and on the other hand they can be victimized by the laws of the country: they can be charged with adultery, a crime that can be punishable by death. ”

    2. What a bunch of BS! You want to wear a veil. The real reason is probably because from birth you were brainwashed. Made to think women are weak, forced to think as a woman you ought to walk around feeling ” in danger” and taught to think of all men as out of control sex maniacs who rape. I have news for you, most men never rape anyone and are not any more interested in sex than any normal woman. So if more men rape in Islam it is NOT because they are guys, or biological, but because they too are brainwashed to be violent, stupid, sexist jerks. And you are doing what you do because your society messed you up. No normally taught woman would live in fear and only feel safer when all covered up, because normal women do not view this world as one big danger. Thats insane! I have walked the streets all night long, lived homeless, hitchhiked across my country at age 18 ALONE, and not raped nor as much as propositioned or touched. Obviously in my country guys do not automatically pose a threat. Also real women do not buy into the lie about guys being stronger. I think it is repulsive that any woman feels she must cover up herself, especially if not forced to! That means you made that crazy choice yourself. You should seek mental health help then. Because if you do not feel free and safe walking in the world open and dressed in regular clothes, no veils and stuff, then that is an issue with your mind, your environment, your society and brainwashing from day one. I do not at all feel bad over judgeing you, because clearly all you are doing is judging men, and assuming they are some kind of predators rather than just another person. You are judging society in general. And you are an insult to thousands of other women who wish they COULD go out openly and not be forced to cover up, who are still forced to! You have the choice and choose te wrong, backward one.
