PROPAGANDA VS REALITY IN ISLAM
Islamic propaganda machine succeeded largely in its mission of shadowing the evils of Islam and its prophet. This has unfortunately continued for the past fourteen hundred years. It got a bit of hammering since the invention of the internet. Thanks to our scientists, internet has provided us the opportunity to understand the deceptive political ideology of Islam hiding behind the religious mask.
ENDLESS FALSE PROPAGANDA ABOUT WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT IN ISLAM
If a question is put to an average Muslim about Muhammad’s married life, one will get an immediate answer about his first wife Khadija, a 40-year-old widow and the rich entrepreneur of Mecca. But no Muslim will mention about his third wife, the 6-year-old Aisha, whom he married at the age of 52. This is the unbeaten success of their propaganda.
Average Muslims know that Muhammad had a ‘few’ wives, not more than four, since that is maximum mentioned by Allah in the Quran (4:3). But they don’t know that Muhammad had married at least fifteen wives, as recorded in the hadiths and biographies of Muhammad. Muslim scholars and Imams intentionally keep those hadiths in the shadow.
Common Muslims will quickly tell you that all of Muhammad’s wives were all aged and widowed, but they don't knows that all of them were married young girls and Muhammad himself had made them widows by killing their husbands, took them captive, and raped them on the same day of their husband’s murders.
Common Muslims will tell you that Muhammad’s multiple marriages with ‘widows’ were not intended for sex, but to unite the various tribes. But nobody knows that, as per Sahih hadiths, he used to have sex with nine to eleven wives on the same night.
All Muslims believe that Muhammad was al-insa’n al-ka’mil (the perfect human) and uswa hasana (an excellent model of conduct) and they never heard of his lowly ‘moral’ character as recorded in the hadiths and the majority of them will not believe those hadiths. Muhammad used to visit, ate and slept at some of his married girlfriends’ houses. Besides that other Muslim women use to visit his house to offer them to him in sex in the presence of his wives.
Every Muslim will tell you that Muhammad was be last and the best prophet of God, but they don't know that he became a tyranical warlord and the first Sultan of the Arab Peninsula by raiding non-Muslim caravans, and raping, killing and vandalizing the non-Muslim settlements etc.
Muslims shed tears recalling the incident of the Meccan Pagans' abuse of Muhammad, but they don’t speak about how Muhammad denigrated their gods prior to their attack on Muhammad. Muslims are kept in the dark about the bloody last ten years of Muhammad's prophetic life in Medina, about the extent of his killings and torturing of those who refused to accept him as their leader.
The list of such deceptive Islamic propaganda is endless. This successful propaganda is intended to perpetuate power of the Muslim ruling class by perpetuating ignorance among their Muslim subjects. And the non-Arabic Muslims are the worst victims of this propaganda.
MUHAMMAD: THE CHAMPION OF WOMEN’S RIGHTS
This article is about the recently-invented false propaganda that Islam empowered women. Muslims today are indoctrinated with the false propaganda that Muhammad had liberated the deprived and suppressed women of the Arab Peninsula, and gave them status equal to men. Most notably, Muslims portray Muhammad as the celebrated Arab ‘knight’, who saved the lives of women by eradicating the barbaric practice of burying baby girls alive. Each and avery Muslim around the world knows this ‘fact’.
The list of Islamic propaganda about Muhammad’s reforms to empower women may go on and on. Here are the few instances:
Women have rights that are similar to men, but men are "a degree above them." (Quran 2:228)
Women should not artificially beautify themselves! (Sahih Al-Bukhari 7:72:815)
Confine the lewd women by starvation until they die! (Qur'an 4:15)
Women are Worth Half a Man! (Quran 2:282, 4:11)
He introduced the system of ‘head gear’ (hijab) for all women! (Quran 24:31, 33:59)
In Islam, women, in many ways, are deprived of the possession of their own body. Even her milk belongs to her husband.
THE MILK BELONGS TO THE HUSBAND: The milk belongs to the husband (if one drinks the milk of a lady then the husband of that lady is just like his father, i.e., he will be his foster father.) (Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol. 7, Book of Nikah 62, Chapter 23, p. 27)
Sahih Al-Bukhari 3:48:812: Aflah replied, "O Aisha! You were suckled by my brother's wife with my brother's milk…”
If you accuse a woman of adultery, be sure to bring four witness. Otherwise you will receive 80 lashes (Quran 24:4).
This Quranic verse may sound like designed to provide dignity and justice to women. But in effect, it is not. Instead, it works to silence them after they are raped, because if she wants to seek justice for being raped, she must produce four witnesses seeing the raping happening on her, which is almost impossible. So, after being raped, if she complains but almost certainly fails to produce four witnesses, she will be flogged. This verse thus works toward silencing raped women from seeking justice.
In Islam, a man is allowed to divorce his wives by uttering 'talaq' (I divorce you) before two male witnesses, but a woman can divorce her husband only if the husband permits it!
A wife must not seek divorce from her husband without a serious cause. If she does, she will not enter paradise. If she can prove her case, she will be awarded decree only if she returns all that her husband had bestowed on her as an entitlement or outright gift. (Ibn-e-Majah Vol. 1, p. 571)
It is not permitted for a man to reunite with his divorced wife. His divorced wife must pay for his mistake by marrying another man. She can come back to her first husband, if at all the second husband divorces her. This law permits the Muslim men to suppress his wives. (Sahih Bukhari 7:72:715, Quran 2:230)
VALUE OF WOMEN
The woman, slave-girl and a camel are equal! (Malik 28.22.52)
Angels are men and not from the filthy women, as the kafir says! (Quran 53:27)
“A woman is like a private part. When she goes out, the devil casts a glance at her.” (Mishkat al Masabih 2:692)
The value of woman is a handful of flour! (Sahih Muslim 8:3247-3249, Sunan Abu Dawud 11:2105)
A woman can’t marry on her own, but with the permission of her custodian! (Malik 28.2.5)
Woman should not demand the divorce of previous wives of her would be husband. (Sahih Al-Bukhari 3:50:884)
Allah's rules for divorcing wives that have not yet reached puberty. (Quran: 65:4)
Islam set the age of marriage for ‘women’ as low as six years through the Prophet's holy sunna of marrying little girl, 6-year-old Aisha! (Quran 65:4, Sahih Muslim 8:3310, Sahih Al-Bukhari 7:62:64)
Muslim men should not marry Barren or infertile women. (Abu Dawud 11:2045)
Don't bother trying to treat your wives fairly. It's impossible. (Quran 4:129)
Men are in charge of women, because Allah made men better than women. Women must obey men, and if they refuse they must be punished. Refuse to have sex with them and beat them into submission (Islam). (Quran 4:34)
Beat your wives for their indecency. They are similar to domestic animals. Obedient wives gets food and cloths. (Tabari IX:113)
If your sex-slaves are guilty of lewdness, punish them half as much as you punish your free wives for lewdness. 4:25c
“….And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with It …. (Quran 38:44)
A man must not be asked why he beat his wife! (Sunan Abu Dawud 11:2142)
If a woman need a separation from her arrogant abusive and torturing husband, she must return her dower to him to get separated! (Sunan Abu Dawud 12:2220)
Women are less intelligent! (Sahih Al-Bukhari 3:826)
Women are the dwellers of hell! (Sahih Muslim 1:142)
Selling females is allowed, but must not be sold with what is in their wombs! Similar norms applies for animals! (Malik 31.34.75)
When it's time to pray and you have just used the toilet or touched a woman, be sure to wash up. If you can't find any water, just rub some dirt on yourself. (Quran 5:6)
An ass, woman, and black Dog are devils! (Sahih Muslim 4:1032)
No affliction is more harmful to men than women." (Sahih Al-Bukhari 7:62:33)
Your wives and children are your enemies. They are to you only a temptation! (Quran 64:14-15)
“….give her (Muslim wife) food when you (Muslim husband) have taken your food, that you shall clothe her when you have clothed yourself….”. (Sunan Ibn Majah, Kitab al-Nikah, Hadith No. 1850.)
The water left over by women is filthy, and should not use by men! (Abu Dawud 1:82)
Don't bother trying to treat your wives fairly. It's impossible. (Quran 4:129)
It is impossible to straighten women! (Sahih Al-Bukhari 7:62:114)
“…….Whatever you (Muslim men) spend will be considered a Sadaqa (charity) for you, even the mouthful of food you put in the mouth of your wife……” (Sahih Al-Bukhari 7:64:266). If a Muslim man intercourse with his wife is also a Sadaqa (charity). (Sahih Muslim 5:2198) But, wait! What is Sadaqa according to Muhammad?
Sadaqa is similar to vomit of Muslim men (Malik 17.26.50). Sadaqa – means a drink taken from a Muslim man’s under garment (Malik 58.3.15)
Muhammad said: If I were to command anyone to make prostration before another, I would command women to prostrate themselves before their husbands, because of the special right over them given to husbands by Allah. (Abu Dawud 11:2135)
WOMEN ‘FRIENDLY’ MUHAMMAD
The never ending list of Allah’s bounties toward Muslim women possibly cannot be discussed in this tiny article. It does not mean that Muhammad hated women. The priority of Muhammad’s love is women:
"The Messenger of Allah said: 'In this world, women and perfume have been made dear to me” (Sunan an-Nasa’I 4:36:3391-3393)
In the next article, we will discuss the Islamic propaganda about burying daughters alive in the pre-Islamic Arab society.
