Women, The Inferior Species In Islam

Revelations directed to men only

They taught me this following story as an example of how women are respected in Islam. Allah even revealed a verse for them! In retrospect, it’s clear that complaining to the prophet is the only way to get Allah to consider women’s needs. Women just aren’t high on the list.

Testimony — One man or TWO women?

A woman’s witness is half of a man’s in the Quran:

Spousal Discipline

Her husband can beat her for simply fearing her disobedience according to the Quran.

Marital rights

Another strange thing in Islam is how it bullies wives into having sex with their husband. A woman may not reject her husband’s sexual advances. If a woman rejects her husbands sexual advances she is cursed all night by the angels. In a healthy relationship you shouldn’t have to coerce or threaten your spouse to sleep with you.

Divorce

Only Men can unilaterally divorce in Islam:

Marriage

Men can marry multiple partners:

Inheritance

My daughter would get half a share of what my sons get if I die.

How is it beneficial to have a rule that sons get double what daughters gets?

It’s possible this made sense in a certain society and context. But no longer this is the case. Islam may have given women some rights, such as the right to own property, but it also took away some rights from them.

Hereafter

It’s reported that Muhammad said most of hell is full of women:

In Paradise

In paradise men get fair big breasted sex dolls to hump and bump with all day:

In Conclusion

In conclusion, Islam is one-sided in its treatment of women. It gives almost all the rights to men over women in every way possible. It describes a man’s paradise and hardly caters to women. While Islam may have been progressive in some sense 1400 years ago, it is no longer so. We can do better with secular humanism. We need not refer to ancient and outdated, and sometimes contradictory ramblings of 7th century men and the scholars that followed on how to live our life.
