    Your emotions doesn't matter, music doesn't matter, sex slaves is not true and it's not rape and it don't matter, what you think is sexism doesn't matter. All that matters is Allah exists, he decides what's right and what's wrong and he commands you to submit to him, do you acknowledge Allah, do you submit to him and do your namaaz, if not then may Allah guide you back to Islam. We can't have weak people in the ummah.
    Sex slaves is true. I have done lots of research on this area. If God didn't want us to question things even regarding Islam then why did he give us a brain? Why did he give us the ability to think and analyse? Why did he give us an intellect?

    Why didn't he just make people brain dead and believe anything you're told. Theres a reason God gave us the ability think for ourselves and to question things. It's people like you that are easily blinded and close minded. Your brain is a terrible thing to waste. We would all be zombies, there's a reason why God gave us a brain. I don't believe I'm sinning by having doubts or questioning things, it's part of human nature and we'll never really get the answers until after death. Nothing is guaranteed to happen. We don't have the answers.

    Like i said, the quran was revealed 1400 years ago where slavery was fine - i'm not saying i disagree with the quran nor am i saying it is "outdated" it will never be. The quran mentions slavery as being PERMISSABLE so it is upto you to decide whether to take a slave or not. Just like in some countries the death penalty is an optional punishment for criminals but it's upto the judge to decide whether it is the best option - based on the facts and all that
    i think if someone came up to me and suggested that slavery should become 'permissable' id take issue with them and certainly wouldnt want to have much to do with them. dont really see why mohammed wouldnt be regarded in the same manor

    Let's see what your in depth knowledge and well written reponse has to offer us:


    (1) No one has said that it is a bad thing.
    (2) Modesty is required by men and women. Veiling of the face is recommended to Muslim women for their own sake but is of benefit to both men and women alike, but just because women would choose to veil and men would not (in normal circumstances anyway), that does not make it bad.
    (3) Sex before marriage is not allowed for men or women, so this point is nonsense.
    (4) Travelling distances with a male escort is for the woman's safety, not as form of oppression.
    (5) Not being able to drive cars is not a part of Islam; that is a law unique to Saudi Arabia.


    (*) Refer to (5)



    (6) I was talking about music within an Islamic context, so your points have no relevance here as my discussion with her was reconcilling reasoning with the Islamic prohibition.
    (7) Within the Islamic context, one would be unable to engage in acts of Ibadah whilst listening to music since it is simply not practical/possible e.g. dhikr, reciting Quran, praying etc.
    (8) There are other reasons why music is negative which I have not mentioned, but the subject was too much to type on my phone, but that indeed was sufficient.
    (9) Haram things could constitute 'fun' e.g. drinking alcohol, but it does not mean it is good for one's spiritual or personal wellbeing.


    (*) Refer to (6)
    (10) It's becoming increasingly apparent that your post is not about discussing my advice within an Islamic context (which was the point of my discussion with her and this thread). Your points are just ramblings of your views with no actual link to the topic at hand. Thank you for wasting both of our times.
    (11) Gambling is prohibited in Islam.



    (12) Things done in the correct way will not ruin one's life. Islam done in the correct way will not ruin someones life, rather it will enhance it, though it will be at the expense of things deemed to be unnecessary or bad.
    (13) Yes, praying is more beneficial than listening to music, though you would not understand that as you are not muslim. Please refer back to (11).




    (*) Refer to (6, 11)



    (14) Provide proof that these rights do not exist in Islam as taught by the Prophet.
    (15) Men are segregated from the opposite gender too.
    (16) Women are not treated like modern prisoners. Women are treated better.



    I agree, your post was.





    1) No one has said that it is a bad thing. I never said you did.

    (2) Modesty is required by men and women. Veiling of the face is recommended to Muslim women for their own sake but is of benefit to both men and women alike, but just because women would choose to veil and men would not (in normal circumstances anyway), that does not make
    it bad. It is bad because it is very forced and many women do not have a choice and no it has no sensible benefit and you see how you try and spin it to be "oh we are doing something good" sure if a woman wants to go ahead but if she refuses she does not have to.

    (3) Sex before marriage is not allowed for men or women, so this point is nonsense. Sex before marriage should be allowed for everyone.

    (4) Travelling distances with a male escort is for the woman's safety, not as form of oppression.
    It is oppression if a woman wants to go out alone she should be allowed. it is trapping a women in and while sure many people may not want to go down dark allyways if she wanted to pop to the local store to get some food it is not dangerous in all honesty

    (5) Not being able to drive cars is not a part of Islam; that is a law unique to Saudi Arabia.
    A law justified by Islam and Islamic preachers


    (*) Refer to (5)



    (6) I was talking about music within an Islamic context, so your points have no relevance here as my discussion with her was reconcilling reasoning with the Islamic prohibition.
    My point was not to say that wrong in islams eyes it was that it is a stupid idea within a logical and normal world.

    (7) Within the Islamic context, one would be unable to engage in acts of Ibadah whilst listening to music since it is simply not practical/possible e.g. dhikr, reciting Quran, praying etc
    . Sure have your quiet and peaceful times where there is no music but if someone wants music it should be perfectly fine. and one again I am not arguing that It is wrong in Islams eyes but from a sensible viewpoint

    (8) There are other reasons why music is negative which I have not mentioned, but the subject was too much to type on my phone, but that indeed was sufficient.
    (9) Haram things could constitute 'fun' e.g. drinking alcohol, but it does not mean it is good for one's spiritual or personal wellbeing. No such thing as spiritual well-being and and drinking is not really bad in small quantities and can lead to good .




    (*) Refer to (6)
    (10) It's becoming increasingly apparent that your post is not about discussing my advice within an Islamic context (which was the point of my discussion with her and this thread). Your points are just ramblings of your views with no actual link to the topic at hand. Thank you for wasting both of our times.


    Yes my post was discussing it from a normal point of view as the person is doubting religion and I am showing why some of these rules are stupid

    (11) Gambling is prohibited in Islam.
    Never disputed this, just showing that it being prohibited is stupid.


    (12) Things done in the correct way will not ruin one's life. Islam done in the correct way will not ruin someones life, rather it will enhance it, though it will be at the expense of things deemed to be unnecessary or bad
    I would rather have a life not controlled by my own false belief in a slaver in the sky, there is no actual enhancements to being a Muslim so yeah it is a waste.


    (13) Yes, praying is more beneficial than listening to music, though you would not understand that as you are not muslim. Please refer back to (11).
    It is a waste of time and once again I am not saying that in Islam it is a waste of time but saying that logically it is perfectly fine to listen to music




    (*) Refer to (6, 11)



    (14) Provide proof that these rights do not exist in Islam as taught by the Prophet. Not going quran diving tonight.
    (15) Men are segregated from the opposite gender too That is how segregation works. If women are separated from men obviously men are separated from women. but logically they should not be segregated as it is sexist
    (16) Women are not treated like modern prisoners. Women are treated
    They are in many ways a slave to their husband and are treated as second class prisoners, but the thing about prisoners are most have done something bad to deserve the punishment and most will be released one day.


    Prisoners
    mostly confined to prisons
    Cant easily get out when they want to
    Mostly forced to wear uniform
    Lives are ruled over by guards/officers
    Most Have a chance to get out

    Islamic women

    mostly confined to Houses and are expected to be a house wife/woman
    Cant easily get out when they want to
    Mostly forced to wear a form of veil
    Lives are ruled over by Men
    Very little chance to get out.

    I was born and raised Muslim. The faith has a lot of good things about it.

    However recently, I am starting to have doubts. I'm not as religious as I used to be. Particularly being a female, I find some parts of Islam extremely sexist.

    For example women have to cover up, men can take up to 4 wives, Muslim women must only marry Muslim men, underage girls are allowed to marry as soon as start puberty ,women aren't allowed to leave the house without a male relative, women will make up the majority in hellfire because they are ungrateful to their husbands , sex slaves are permissible during war, woman's testimony often counts half of a man's testimony, women inheritance half that of a man, a woman must always obey her husband etc.

    But I've read up on all the above and I do appreciate some of them give good reasons as to why. But one thing I can't get over is the fact our prophet Muhammed (pbuh) married Aisha (r.a) when she was only 6 years old. The reason I've heard include those were the times it happened a lot then, She contributed to the spread of Muhammad's(pbuh) message and served the Muslim community for 44 years after his death, the marriage not being consummated until she had reached puberty at the age of nine or ten years old etc. It's really hard for me to overlook.

    But seriously if some joe public did that everyone would find it disgusting. What makes it a problem for me is that men are meant to follow the sunnah of the prophet. This means it's ok for Muslim men to take underage bride. It happens a lot in Afghanistan, Pakistan etc.

    I'm just starting to lose my faith a little and it is mostly to do with its attitude towards women.
    A lot of what you have quoted is information preached by humans. The religion of Islam is outlined in the Quran. Women in Islam have a lot more rights than you think. Instead of listening to hadiths or the words of imams for example, go and study the Quran and only then will you realise how the religion of Islam is a religion of peace, mercy and love. It will teach you to live a good lifestyle. No where in the Quran does it mention that a women has to cover herself from head to toe - however it does say do cover up to avoid attention from others, how so? Don't reveal what is to be seen only by your husband.

    You'd be surprised what God has described in the Quran in terms of women and how husbands should treat them. You'll be surprised how much empathises is on treating your wife and daughters well. I won't dwell on it too much but read the book of guidance and don't take the words of preachers too seriously! After all, we are all humans and we make mistakes but God doesn't so understand Gods words and message - you'll be glad you did 👍🏻

    Hi, I was raised in a Muslim family and denounced my religion at the age of 10/11 after doubting it and questioning it for a year. I was very mature as a child (don't know what the **** happened though because i'm a complete retard now) anyway I lost my faith in Islam due to a number of things. Here are a few.

    Treatment of women
    I noticed how I was treated differently and not allowed to do certain things because I was a girl. I didn't understand why women had to cover up when men could where whatever they wanted. Apparently women are supposed to cover up in Islam because men may have sexual thoughts about them or whatever bullcrap they come up with, then why tell young girls to cover up, girls as young as 3. Men being allowed to have multiple wives didn't sound right to me.

    Science
    The big bang theory and evolution go against Islamic teachings, I am a logical person and refuse to believe an ancient book is correct when there is physical proof for these theories. Many Muslims brag about how scientific the Quran is even though it has many, many mistakes when it comes to science. Just because it has a couple things right do we ignore all the mistakes?
    https://wikiislam.net/wiki/Scientifi...s_in_the_Quran
    Follow the link for more info about the mistakes.

    The morality and existence of God
    The existence of a God (or Gods) didn't make sense to me. The whole religion along with all the other religions seemed very man made to me (and quite stupid).I couldn't believe in it and I tried to believe in it so for my family's sake (I'll explain this in the next point) but it was like trying to convince myself that my dad is secretly the queen.
    Also if a God did exist what a horrible being he must be to allow so many people to suffer. This youtube video featuring Stephen Fry, explains my thoughts.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-d4otHE-YI

    The Muslim Community
    The Muslim community is one of the most judgmental, sensitive, hypocritical and backwards-thinking communities out there. When I mentioned I wanted to believe in God for my family's sake I meant two things: 1) apostasy is a big no no in Islam and the Muslim community, if my parents found out I would be punished and probably forced to attend Islamic classes. 2) Because the Muslim community is so judgmental it would be embarrassing for my family to have an atheist among them.

    I haven't even scraped the surface. I only replied because I've been in your situation and I know how it feels. It's been a few years since I made the decision to denounce my religion and honestly it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. A ton of weight was lifted off my shoulders when I denounced my religion and it felt great. My parents don't know I'm planning on hiding it from them until I'm financially independent and living far, far away from them lol.
    I hope this helped sorry if some of it didn't make sense I've had a long day but I saw your post and wanted to help you out.

    Sex slaves is true.
    No it isn't true, those who believe so have been misguide by Salalfis and Islamophobes. Islam does not permit "Sex slaves", but (historically) servitude with conditions, with the easing of lust of those in servitude being permitted.

    I have done lots of research on this area. If God didn't want us to question things even regarding Islam then why did he give us a brain? Why did he give us the ability to think and analyse? Why did he give us an intellect? Why didn't he just make people brain dead and believe anything you're told. Theres a reason God gave us the ability think for ourselves and to question things.

    Did I advise you to follow Islam blindly? I can't remember so. One can and should question what they believe. But once Muslim, you should be aware of the surrounding enviroment, where there are many individuals eager to criticise, mock and misguide Muslims (some such peoples can even be "Muslim" - Salafis). Because of this, questioning Islam (knowing it may lead you to kufr) is to be preferably avoided.

    I think you need to speak to a scholar or an Imam on the doubts you are having, so they can answer the questions you have. What are parents teach is fine to a point but I have found that by actually seeking out the answers and by asking scholars the doubts I had were answered, no one can provide a succinct answer in the way they can.
    I think imams are a big reason why I am being "led astray". I've yet to come across an imam that doesn't use scaremongering to get his point across. If you do this or that you'll go to hell or God will punish you, you'll be squeezed in your grave, your hair will be tied to your toes if you don't cover your hair, that's haraam, this is haraam, save yourselves from the hellfire etc etc. How does that make God sound peaceful and merciful?

    The mosque I attended, it was said that disbelievers will never go to heaven. I think that's rubbish. I know plenty of non Muslims that are better and kinder people than most Muslims. It just makes Muslims look arrogant.

    Although fear of God is recommended when subscribing to such a religion, it certainly shouldn't be the only reason to obey the command of God.

    For my Master Imam Ali once said (paraphrased):

    There are 3 types of servants of God. The first obeys God because of the reward of Heaven, and this is the worship of a business man. The second one obeys because of fear of punishment and hell fire. The last obeys God because He is most worthy of being worshiped.

    The last one is evidently the most superior.

    I have already made a comment on the notion of every single disbeliever residing in hell for eternity. Personally, most of His creation will end heaven, after punishment of one's crimes. This is not to say that inevitably some souls will reside for eternity.

    It also depends on how you define disbelievers. A more accurate definition of kufr is the one who has been exposed to the truth and yet still rejects. This is those who the Prophets were sent to and asked for miracles, but when given they still disbelieved.

    equally im sure op is aware that there is a compulsion for muslims not to challenge any sort of doctrine or even shiekhs and imams rulings, for fear of death - a self preservation mechanism

    Lets put this into simpler terms.
    lets say Allah has written that it is "correct to take slaves after war"
    I am saying that it is incorrect.
    Me saying that it is incorrect isn't confronting Allah and challenging his authority on it or diasgreeing it's simply taking a neutral stance as i'm not acting on it e.g I'm not taking any slaves.
    This is clerly where we differ on our understanding of these things.
    As far as I am aware, in Islam, it is not possible to claim that Allah is wrong about anything. By definition, he is perfect, infallible, he is incapable of making mistakes. Yet you claim that he was wrong to allow slavery and using slaves for sex.
    It is not a matter of you chosing to not take advantage of a permission. You are not saying "I think slavery is ok, but I just don't want to keep slaves". You are saying "slavery is wrong". You are making a negative judgement about Allah's morality.

    If, on the other hand, you are claiming that taking slaves and using them for sex is ok, but you just choose not to do it, you are approving of slavery (but I get the impression that you do not)

    Me not taking a slave has no effect on me when i'm judged about my life on this earth on judgement day.
    Becauseon the day of judgement i won't be judged on my opinion about taking war slaves i'll be judged on my actions.
    But if you are claiming that Allah was wrong to allow slavery and sex with slaves, then Allah might well not look too kindly on it.

    study the Quran and only then will you realise how the religion of Islam is a religion of peace, mercy and love.
    Peace - Fight them until there is no more fitnah and all religion is for Islam - Quran 8:39

    Mercy - The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication,- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, - Quran 24:2

    Love - There is for you an excellent example (to follow) in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people: "We are clear of you and of whatever ye worship besides Allah: we have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred for ever,- unless ye believe in Allah and Him alone" - Quran 60:4

    Don't reveal what is to be seen only by your husband.
    Clearly implying that a woman is a possession of her husband.

    You'd be surprised what God has described in the Quran in terms of women and how husbands should treat them.
    Indeed - As to those women on whose part ye fear disobedience and ill-conduct, admonish them, refuse to share their beds, and beat them- Quran 4:34

    After all, we are all humans and we make mistakes but God doesn't so understand Gods words and message - you'll be glad you did
    So you agree with Allah when he allows men to have sex with their slaves (an act classed as rape by international law)?

    No it isn't true, those who believe so have been misguide by Salalfis and Islamophobes.
    It is clearly permitted in the Quran and sahih hadith.
    "And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those captives whom your right hands possess." - 4:24

    Successful are the believers...who guard their chastity save from their wives or the slaves that their right hands possess - 23:5-6

    O Prophet! surely We have made lawful to you your wives whom you have given their dowries, and those whom your right hand possesses out of those whom Allah has given to you as prisoners of war, - 33:50

    "O Allah's Apostle! We get female captives as our share of booty, and we are interested in their prices, what is your opinion about coitus interrupt us?" The Prophet said, "Do you really do that? It is better for you not to do it. No soul that which Allah has destined to exist, but will surely come into existence. - Bukhari 34:432

    Some of the Companions of Apostle of Allaah were reluctant to have relations with the female captives because of their pagan husbands. So, Allaah the exalted sent down the Qur’anic verse “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hand posses.” - Dawud 2155

    Islam does not permit "Sex slaves", but (historically) servitude with conditions, with the easing of lust of those in servitude being permitted.
    WTF does this even mean?

    Because of this, questioning Islam (knowing it may lead you to kufr) is to be preferably avoided.
    Indeed. Don't question Islam as it could lead to disbelief. Allah even warned against it in the Quran.
    Odd, don't you think? "Allah is perfect and Islam is clearly true, but don't ask questions because we might not have a good answer".
    Allah doesn't really show a lot of confidence in his "perfect" religion, does he?
    Sorry, forgot that questions are not allowed!

    I would say you need to research what things you have listed about islam before jumping into conclusions. Firstly, everything you find on the internet is not always the truth, many people like to take an extreame point of view on things when that is totally not what islam portrays. There are many extreamist islamic groups who believe that women are lower than men etc. However this is not the case, as when a muslim woman marries a man she completes half of his deen. Also when a muslim girl is born in a household, she becomes the reason for her father to enter paradise. When she becomes a mother paradise lies beneath her feet. This is the status of women in islam. I hope you finally realise that islam does not teach inequality between men and women. i pray that you never feel like this again towards islam & inshallah allah guides you to the right path.

    Try talking with some ex-Muslims who will hopefully be able to relate to you and the unique struggles you have faced. It must have been awfully difficult for you, I've heard from so many that they feel guilt to even question their religion.

    Can you provide a hadith for this. I haven't heard of this practice before.
    It was narrated from Umm Karaz that she asked the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) about ‘aqeeqah, and he said: “For a boy, two sheep, and for a female one sheep, and it does not matter if it is male or female.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1516, who said this is a saheeh hasan hadeeth; and by al-Nasaa’i, 4217; classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Irwa’ al-Ghaleel, 4/391

    "It was narrated from ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded them (to slaughter) two sheep of similar type for a boy and one sheep for a girl."

    Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1513, who said it is hasan saheeh; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.
