She is from Iraq but she IS a muslim. What is your answer to why a woman must cover up and why is she frowned upon is those areas for not covering herself. Why are little girls forced into female circumision? is it not, to keep them "pure". The Qur'an does state that woman are less than man, as I'm sure you know from reading it. So where are you reading your information at? I would love to read it from a different view.

First of all, women in islaam are not the only ones to cover up. Nuns cover, hindus cover. All the drawn pictures of Mary, mother of jesus alayhi salatal wasalaam- who does she look like? LIKE A MUSLIM.



Anyway, we cover because we are absolutely PRECIOUS. I, as a woman, am so precious that I refuse to let any fool of a man on the street look at me. I REFUSE to be judged by my beauty, or if someone deems lack of beauty, if my hair is perfect, if i have my breasts perked up just perfectly. I refuse to be judged if i'm too thin, too fat, or too awkward. I will not let some man who doesnt care at all about me see me and get his jollies on. Unless they like women covered from head to toe :D this is why I wear it. I will be judged on my intelligence, my actions, and my morals. I wear it to keep the freaky fetish obsessed people away. Men who have weird triggers. I wear it as a badge of honor to say yes I AM muslim and yes I AM proud. I wear it to help out my fellow brothers in Islam who are commanded to respect women, lower their gazes, and stare only at their wives. And most importantly i wear it because Allah subhana wa ta'ala has comanded the muslim women to wear it.



If you are going to argue over FGM its not going to work. The only female circumsicion that is allowed in Islaam is the removal of the clitoral hood, which is not wide spread. What Is wide spread is the CULTERAL act of basically shredding a woman's vagina to bits. You obviously cannot tell the difference between islaam and culture. How could you? You know nothing about islaam.




If you can show me which verse exactly in the qur'an you are speaking of, then I can comment. But first, make sure its a credible translation of the meaning of the verse. If you bring me yusuf ali or someone of the sort I'll just have to laugh.

Oh and my knowledge is based on the qur'an, the sunnah, according to how the salaf understood it. I know that's hard for someone who doesn't understand anything about islaam to understand what that actually means.

Please explain these to me then..



-"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, (To me this says that men can beat their wives for not covering)



-"A male shall inherit twice as much as a female." Quran 4:11 (because he's more important? maybe?



-"Women shall with justice have rights similar to those exercised against them, although men have a status above women." Quran 2:228



-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, (why are they unclean? for something they cannot control?)

Didn't Muhammad have what he thought was an evil nightmare and his wife convinced him it was a revelation of Allah and so it all started?



I don't know much about Islam besides the true stories in my VOM magazines I get bi weekly, I see prison like reform camps for those who walk away and a lot if torturing killing and imprisoning Christians who are open about their faith.



One guy was found with a bible and was beat on a tree for a long time, many weeks if I remember correctly, until he denied Jesus. He never did. After many months he hit free.



Many stories like that one.



Don't Muslims believe that any non-Muslim will be consciously tormented eternally?

I knew you would get a translation from who-knows-where. Do you even know who translated that? I bet you googled some phrase and came across some website where all they do is talk crap. Real good place to learn about islam.



So I had to go find the CORRECT translations, by the extremely famous, well known, and reputable translators, halili and khan (The Noble Qur'an).




-Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because All

We believe that Prophet Muhammed sallallahu alayhi wa salaam, while on a mountain, saw angel gabriel alayhi salaam, and was scared (he was given the first revealed verses of the qur'an) and he ran to his wife because he was frightened.




Idk about the rest you posted of but the whole 'deny jesus' thing i seriously doubt considering we believe jesus alayhi salam is a great Prophet, and we believe in the second coming of Jesus. You CANNOT be muslim if you do not believe in all the Prophets.

i dont understand why you bother to try and argue with her about her religion. no one religion is the truth, so let others have thier own truths. if muslim women are ok with this truth, who are we to judge oppress or force them to do otherwise??

Especially about a religion they are not apart of. I used to think wiccans literally try and call on satan. Like 'satan, if ye hear me come to meee'. And then I found out they don't believe in satan lol. (Well, from what I've been told).

I'm not preaching to her. I could careless what she chooses to follow but I feel from reading it that I get a much different idea. She is saying that because she converted to be a muslim that she knows more then the women who were born muslim. She is just translating things to make them look not as bad.. beating a woman with anything is not okay, and I assume it is also okay for the woman to beat her husband with a toothbrush, too, right? and she's also allowed to have 4 husbands if she wishes? and men must cover themselves not to provoke any perv women right? .. My fathers ex girlfriend married a muslim (born and raised) she divorced him because he felt that allah would want him to beat his wife to make her obey and pass the "test" that this life is. The friend from Iraq is a born and raises muslim, she confirms what I read in the book, those things DO take place in other coutries were being muslim is more popular. My SO's bestfriend is from Iran, he is not muslim but also says that the women are treated like crap up there and his mother fled with them when they were teens because of how awful it is for women.



To be fair, I also have someone on my facebook who converted to be muslim and she says the same as eknuckles does but again.. the ones who live in areas where muslim faith is popular, seem to see it in a very different way then those who convert and read different/updated versions of the qur'an.

I'm clearly not taking about the same muslim and clans that eknuckles believe in. I mean the ones who follow the orginal qur'an. It is so sad how they treat those women and young girls.

It's different here because Canada and the USA would never allow such things to happen. They would step in if a woman was being beating, wether their religion say it is okay or not. Back to the orginal post, in all coutries there are rules that everyone must follow.. I don't personally think anyone should get special treatment.. everyone says they want fairness and equality, well it is equel for rules to apply to everyone regardless of race, gender or religion.

Who follow the original qur'an? Your ignorance is showing. There is only one qur'an. It's not like the bible where there a ton of different versions.
