When I left off, we had covered the matter of Islam and pedophilia. It leaves one wondering how anyone could possibly justify the idea of a man of 54 not only wedding a small child, but bedding one as well. I mean, how could anyone consider this right?
So, how was it justified? Like this:
“And those who no longer expect menstruation among your women-if you doubt, then their period is three months, and also for those who have not menstruated. And for those who are pregnant, their term is until they give birth. And whoever fears Allah-he will make for him of his matter ease.” Qur’an 65:4
This verse is actually setting the time limit before a divorced woman may remarry. Notice that I’ve placed the portion that prescribes a waiting period of three months for little girls in boldface. This is just one of the reasons why so many women and little girls are living in Hell, as pedophilia as completely permissible in Islam. This verse is justification for all manner of atrocities to be committed against small children, and even babies. Because of this verse, girls as young as 4 are routinely raped in countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and many others. Here’s why.
“Ye have indeed in the messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the praise of Allah.” Qur’an 33:21
What this means is, good Muslims are encouraged to emulate Muhammad’s fine example, as he is the Muslim ideal. The more they act like him, the greater their chances are of getting into Paradise. In their minds, if it’s good enough for the messenger of Allah, it’s good enough for them. This is what happens when a given population reveres a serial rapist and pedophile as their ideal.
Even attempts by governments in Muslim majority countries to stamp out this practice have failed, because of these two verses. Any time a legislature attempts to outlaw the practice, along comes a group of Imams to declare the law blasphemous and anti-Islamic, which then causes the legislatures to reverse course and continue to allow it.
Adultery and Prostitution
Next, we’ll discuss the practice of Mut’a. It’s also known as al-nikah al-munqati (discontinued marriage) and al-nikah al-muwaqqat (temporary marriage) From the beginning, I’ll call it what it is, prostitution.
According to Al-Islam.org, in their article entitled “The Four Pillars of Mut’a”, women who engage in temporary marriages are sometimes referred to as “musta’jara” or “rented women”, as “a man’s basic aim in this kind of marriage is the sexual enjoyment of a woman, and in return for his enjoyment the woman receives a certain amount of money or property.” In short, prostitution.
Admittedly, most Sunni Muslims consider this form of prostitution to be wrong, claiming that Muhammad had banned it, but most of the Shi’a Muslims actually consider it legitimate. In Sunni Islam, there is a similar practice, known as Nikah al-Misyar, which only differs from Mut’a in that Misyar doesn’t have a set time period that the woman is “rented”.
It’s clear that Muhammad not only hated women, but he also went out of his way to make sure that they suffered mightily for simply being born female. As Aisha said, none suffer as much as Muslim women. Yet, PBS would have us believe that he was in fact a forward looking man, who was the paragon of feminism.
Given that he’s mentioned in the Qur’an as the Muslim ideal, his behavior toward women has actually served to force millions of women across the globe to suffer as no other women on this planet have been made to suffer. In later posts, I’ll go into why this is being done.
