Muslims say the religion of Islam benefits women, that Muhammad was a champion for defending women. But how does their “prophet” view women in Islam? No better place to start than with their own Muslim sources.
Woman’s testimony counts as half of a man’s testimony
Pickthall: O ye who believe! When ye contract a debt for a fixed term, record it in writing. Let a scribe record it in writing between you in (terms of) equity. No scribe should refuse to write as Allah hath taught him, so let him write, and let him who incurreth the debt dictate, and let him observe his duty to Allah his Lord, and diminish naught thereof. But if he who oweth the debt is of low understanding, or weak, or unable himself to dictate, then let the guardian of his interests dictate in (terms of) equity. And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not (at hand) then a man and two women, of such as ye approve as witnesses, so that if the one erreth (through forgetfulness) the other will remember. And the witnesses must not refuse when they are summoned. Be not averse to writing down (the contract) whether it be small or great, with (record of) the term thereof. That is more equitable in the sight of Allah and more sure for testimony, and the best way of avoiding doubt between you; save only in the case when it is actual merchandise which ye transfer among yourselves from hand to hand. In that case it is no sin for you if ye write it not. And have witnesses when ye sell one to another, and let no harm be done to scribe or witness. If ye do (harm to them) lo! it is a sin in you. Observe your duty to Allah. Allah is teaching you. And Allah is knower of all things.Surah 2:282
According to the Quran a woman’s testimony is not equal to a man’s testimony. Islam teaches 2 women’s testimony is equal to 1 man, therefore, in Islam woman aren’t equal to man but lower. The thought here is that having 2 women ensures that if 1 of the women “forgets” the other can remind her. It’s not looking good for Islam.
Hell Dwellers will consist of mostly women?
Let’s back this up with another Muslim source. The following Hadith expounds upon the view of women in Islam. Reading from (12) Chapter: The witness of women
Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri:Sahih al-Bukhari 2658, Book 52, Hadith 22, Vol. 3, Book 48, Hadith 826
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?” The women said, “Yes.” He said, “This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.”
We’re beginning to see the low view of women in Islam. According to Islam’s most authentic Hadiths from Sahih al-Bukhari, a woman’s mind is considered deficient.
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:Sahih al-Bukhari 29, Book 2, Hadith 22, Vol. 1, Book 2, Hadith 29
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful.” It was asked, “Do they disbelieve in Allah?” (or are they ungrateful to Allah?) He replied, “They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good (benevolent) to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, ‘I have never received any good from you.”
Things continue to go down hill quickly as the Hadith from Sahih al-Bukhari says the majority of people which will make up hell is women! It must be difficult for Muslim women to accept. Muslims leave Islam there’s no hope for you in a dead religion with no life. But there is life found in Christ, He has life in Himself.
John 5:24-26 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
The Lord Jesus never condemned women to hell, Christ forgave a women who was a prostitute but the Pharisee’s in their heart condemned her saying “This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner” (Luke 7:39), the Lord Jesus Christ replied saying:
Luke 7:40-42 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on. There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
Simon the Pharisee responded saying “I suppose that [he], to whom he forgave most.” (Luke 7:43). Christ then tells him “Thou hast rightly judged”, the Lord gets him to see that those who are forgiven for much of their debt that individual will greatly appreciate him which forgave. Now He points to the woman and says:
Luke 7:44-47 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped [them] with the hairs of her head. Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, [the same] loveth little.
Notice the love of Christ, He expounds upon the fact that while this woman was indeed a sinner, she came to Christ and washed His feet with her tears. She greatly loved the One who has forgiven her of her sins, she poured out her soul in complete admiration and gratefulness.
The problem with Islam is Muslims are in bondage to a god which has no love, a god which is not willing to save his own creation. Allah is an unrighteous pagan god who “saves” those who work for his approval. Therefore, the Muslim god allows men who beat their wives into Jannah without being forgiven of their sins.
A false “prophet” Muhammad who commanded Muslim women to breastfeed grown men 10 times, then reduced to 5 times, the same man who married a 6 year old girl (Aisha) and had sexual relations with her at the age of 9 years old.
The Lord Jesus as the sinless Lamb of God would never commit such horrid atrocities. He forgave sinners, never commanded His followers to commit sexual Immorality. Instead the Word of God tells men to love their wives. The only one condemned are those who reject Christ as their Saviour.
Dear Muslim friends your only hope is in coming to the Lord Jesus Christ for everlasting life. These teachings from Islam are ungodly at its core. It’s the sincerest hope of Christians that we would see individuals leaving the cult of Islam, and coming to the One who offers you the living water. The Lord Jesus said:
John 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
