And the Western world is shocked at what the Muslims are cspable of...set up by "friends" and family. What an outrageous story concerning an issue of such stupidity.

Horrible. This has to stop, no matter what ethnicity or religion, even though Muslims account for 85% of honor killings worldwide. I feel very sorry for low caste Hindus.

Recently, I learned—while reading Wafa Sultan’s book, A God Who Hates—that when someone marries and individual, he or she is marrying the entire family, meaning the father and mother, the brothers and sisters, and all the other wives.

If it is a young couple, then the father and mother has power over them and dictates what they can and cannot do. If one of the parents is dead; for example, the father, it opens the doors for the siblings on one or both sides to makes decisions over the younger couple. The husband and wife have no say in the decision making processes of their lives.

If the couple is mixed in ages, whereas the husband is older with previously married wives, then the wives can and do dictate over the younger wife and her offspring. And, for some reason, the husband allows the older wives to maliciously abuse his younger wife or wives and her or their children.

This is how it is, and this is how it has always been since the beginning of Islam.

This articles gives me the opportunity to share some recently gathered quotes of the woman's status in Islamic society.


‘As our time began to run out, the program’s host gave me another few seconds to conclude what I had to say and summarize my opinions, but the raiding guest interrupted me once more. Time seemed too short and too precious for me to waste even a second of it, and I shouted at him: “Be quiet! It’s my turn!” I uttered this sentence without realizing that it would open a new chapter in Arab and Muslim history. Never in the history of Islam has a woman clearly and forcefully asked a Muslim man to be quiet because it was her turn to speak. Women in Islamic custom and tradition don’t have a turn. They have no time that is theirs alone. Women in Islam don’t even possess their own selves, or the right to make their own decisions.’
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates, chapter: “Who is that woman on Al Jazeera?”

“The Prophet married me when I was six years old and the marriage was consummated when I was nine. The Prophet of God came to our home in company with men and women who were among his followers. My mother came [to me] while I was in a swing between the branches of a tree and made me come down. She smoothed my hair, wiped my face with a little water then came forward and led me to the door. She stopped me while I calmed myself a little. Then she took me in. The Prophet of God was sitting on a bed in our home, and she sat me in his lap. Everyone jumped up and went out, and the Prophet consummated his marriage with me at our home.”
— (in Aisha’s words; Muhammad was fifty years old), Bint al-Shati, author of Wives of Muhammad

“Islam was born into an environment that sanctioned the capture and rape of women, holding them—not the man committing the crime—responsible. Islam did not proscribe what was already permissible. On the contrary, it legalized it and enshrined it in canonical law.”
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates

“A Muslim man can see himself only in terms of his ability to pump out money and sperm. The Muslim woman, for her part, sees herself only as an incubator for his sperm and as a piece of furniture he has bought and paid for with his money. The man alone decides when to take possession of this object and when to deposit his sperm in it dictating a relationship in which human feelings have no value.”
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates

‘A large number of Koranic verses deal with women, yet not one of them moderates the severity of the crisis caused by the verses and stories we’ve talked about already. One verse reads: “Your women are your fields: go, then, into your fields as you please” (2:223). According to Al-Jalalayn’s [one of the most significant tafsirs or] commentary on the Koran, this expression means that woman is where you plant your children and do so, as you please. According to this same commentary this verse means that a man can sow his sperm in any position he may wish the woman to assume during the “planting process.”
A woman, therefore, is like the land—the dirt—while the man is the farmer who plows that land and casts his seed into it. The dirt cannot protest as the farmer furrows it, nor can it determine the time or place of planting.’
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates

‘Muslim women live as men’s slaves and will remain so until they release themselves from this mistaken conviction. Can you imagine how enslaved a woman must be if she believes this hadith from her Prophet: “A man has the right to expect his wife, if his nose runs with blood, mucus or pus, to lick it up with her tongue.” Can you imagine the conceit of a man who believes his God has entitled him to such a position that his wife must lick up the filth that comes out of his nose?’
—Wafa Sultan, author of A God Who Hates

It seems that no valid reason need be given.
