Treatment of Women… Thoughts from an American Soldier

Posted in American soldier with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2018 by paulthepoke

1 Peter 3:7-8 Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered. Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.

Colossians 3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.

 

According to Islamic law, a husband may strike his wife for any one of the following four reasons:

– She does not attempt to make herself beautiful for him (ie. “let’s herself go”)

– She refuses to meet his sexual demands

– She leaves the house without his permission or for a legitimate reason

– She neglects her religious duties

Any of these are also sufficient grounds for divorce.

 

In the birthplace of Islam, about half of Saudi women are beaten at home.

“Hands and sticks were found to be used mostly in beating women, following by men’s head cover and to a lesser extent, sharp objects.”

I’ve seen this happen to women in Islam. It’s better to suffer at the hands of their husband than their society. It’s horrible how women are treated.

 

Muslim apologists say Muhammad ordered women not be harmed. But they are actually basing this on what he said before or during a battle. The example is in Bukhari (59:447) when Muhammad issued an order for all the men of Qurayza be killed and the women and children be taken as slaves.  (Having your husband murdered and being forced into sexual slavery apparently doesn’t qualify as “harm” under the Islamic model).

 

There are a number of cases in which Muhammad did have women killed in the most brutal fashion.  One was Asma bint Marwan, a mother or five, who wrote a poem criticizing the Medinans for accepting Muhammad after he had ordered the murder of an elderly man.  In this case, the prophet’s assassins literally pulled a nursing infant from her breast and stabbed her to death.

After taking Mecca in 630, Muhammad also ordered the murder of a slave girl who had merely made up songs mocking him.  The Hadith are rife with accounts of women planted in the ground on Muhammad’s command and pelted to death with stones for sexual immorality. The prophet of Islam actually encouraged his own men to RAPE women captured in battle.

In short… In summary, according to the Qur’an, Hadith and Islamic law, a woman may indeed have physical harm done to her if the circumstances warrant, with one such allowance being in the case of disobedience.  This certainly does not mean that all Muslim men beat their wives, only that Islam permits them to do so.

RELIGION OF PEACE…. MY ASS!!!

 

Philippians 2:3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.

Romans 12:10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Outdo yourselves in honoring one another.

Wife Beating…Thoughts from an American Soldier

Posted in American soldier, Culture with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2018 by paulthepoke

Ephesians 5:25-33 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

This is how a husband is to relate to his wife. Jesus Christ is the model. Look at the verbs in the passage above…

Love, love, gave, sanctify, cleanse, wash, present, be holy, love, loves, loves, nourishes, cherishes, hold fast, become one, love…

 

hijab domestic abuseDoes the Religion of Peace believe in wife beating? Does Islam allow a man to hit his wife? YES!!!

But only if she doesn’t do as he asks. The beating must stop if the woman complies with her husband’s demands. Behind verbal abuse and abandonment, beating is intended as last resort solution to coerce submission. According to testimony in the Hadith, Mohammad physically struck his favorite wife for leaving the house without his permission. It is not known how he treated his less-favored wives.

Here’s where it’s found in the Quran in case someone tries to disclaim this to you.

Quran 4:34 Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.  

Quran 38:44 “And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath…”  

Allah telling Job to beat his wife Tafsir.

 

Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradhawi, one of the most respected Muslim clerics in the world, once made the famous and somewhat ridiculous statement.

“It is forbidden to beat the woman, unless it is necessary.”

He went on to say that “one may beat only to safeguard Islamic behavior.”

There is no doubt that wife-beating is a matter of religious sanction.

 

Mohammed beat his wife and recommended wife beating to others. Allah sanctioned and gave directions on how to beat a wife.

Jesus loves, nourishes, and cherishes His wife. Christ demonstrates self-sacrifice for His bride. He wants to present her as blameless. Jesus took her place and died on her behalf. Christ keeps His wife from punishment.

Mohammed or Jesus, what’s your choice???
