Haha your post made me laugh
How very idiotic of you to mix religion with actions of people. Ever heard, look at the religion.. not its people. How can you sit there and come up with the conclusions you have just done simply by observing the actions of others?
Islam gives those rights to women. I have given you hadiths which clearly show FORCED MARRIAGES ARE NOT ALLOWED IN ISLAM. Now if some people who dominate their own culture and tribunal regulations over religion carry out forced marriages, how is that Islams fault?
Islam doesnt allow forced marriages. Don't argue with me and sit here telling me forced marriages are allowed. Ive given you direct hadiths which state they are forbidden and people have the right to choose who they marry and can refuse if they wish.
If women are not treated well in certain countries and are abused by their husband, oppressed and tortured, you can't blame that on Islam nor can you say Islam allows people to do this.
Islam doesnt. Islam says treat your women well.
The prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: "The best out of you is the one who is the best with his wives, and I am the best with my wives".
Yes, im sat in the UK replying to you but that doesnt mean women are not abused in this country. There will always be people who do this. It has nothing to do with Islam. If it did, if they truly understood the teachings of Islam they wouldnt behave in this way.
Just because a person is born into a muslim family, raised as a muslim, it doesnt mean they abide by all the rules. Islam has been spread widely and different people in different countries have different ways of thinking and have different cultures. Often, culture is confused with religion.
About stoning, tell me one thing. If this useless government made the sentences for murderers, rapists etc stricter and harsher, wouldnt the crime rate decrease? We all know how pathetic these sentences are. You murder someone and you get a few years in prison. Tell me one thing, if somebody (god forbid) raped your mother sister wife daughter, what would be the punishment you want for that person?
How many cases do you hear of fully grown men raping girls as young as 8,9,10. If death isnt the solution to these disgusting people, then tell me what is?
Im not asking you to follow a religion or start thinking anything of that sort. I want you to understand Islam itself gives women many many many rights. Islam considers women mens equals. Equality does not mean Identical. Men and women are DIFFERENT but EQUAL. Islam gave rights to women many many many years ago before any of these western countries.
Don't look at the actions of others and immediately think "islam allows this".
No it doesnt. Not every muslim is a good muslim. There are muslims out there who do what they like and dont abide by the laws of Shariah and that includes treating their women badly.
If you want to debate with me regarding the rights of women in Islam, go ahead.
