Why does Allah Almighty allow Muslim men to marry non Muslim women, but doesn't allow Muslim women to marry non Muslim men?

Was Islam's Muta (temporary marriage) Law immoral?  What does the Bible say about it?

  

  

  

I am single and committed fornication.  The Quran in 24:3 forbids for me to marry a believer.  What can I do?  (Quran 24:5 forgives the True and Sincere)

The sections of this article are:

1-  Regarding those who commit zina (fornication or adultery) in the Glorious Quran.
2-  Conclusion.

  

  

  

1-  Regarding those who commit zina in the Glorious Quran:

I received this question from an anonymous brother.  Let us look at what Allah Almighty Said in Noble Verses 24:1-5.  Notice the big And in the following Noble Verses.  It links both 24:3 and 24:4 together, and then in 24:5 Allah Almighty gives the forgiveness for those who not just repent, but also mend:

Noble Verse(s) 24:1-24:5
Yusuf Ali:

[024:001]  A sura which We have sent down and which We have ordained in it have We sent down Clear Signs, in order that ye may receive admonition.

[024:002]  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, in a matter prescribed by God, if ye believe in God and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment.

[024:003]  Let no man guilty of adultery or fornication marry and but a woman similarly guilty, or an Unbeliever: nor let any but such a man or an Unbeliever marry such a woman: to the Believers such a thing is forbidden.

[024:004]  And those who launch a charge against chaste women, and produce not four witnesses (to support their allegations),- flog them with eighty stripes; and reject their evidence ever after: for such men are wicked transgressors;-

[024:005]  Unless they repent thereafter and mend (their conduct); for God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Arabic (Read from right to left.  Also, all png image files: [1] [2]):

24:1 سورة انزلناها وفرضناها وانزلنا فيها ايات بينات لعلكم تذكرون

24:2 الزانية والزاني فاجلدوا كل واحد منهما مئة جلدة ولاتاخذكم بهما رافة في دين الله ان كنتم تؤمنون بالله واليوم الاخر وليشهد عذابهما طائفة من المؤمنين

24:3 الزاني لاينكح الا زانية او مشركة والزانية لاينكحها الا زان او مشرك وحرم ذلك على المؤمنين

24:4 والذين يرمون المحصنات ثم لم ياتوا باربعة شهداء فاجلدوهم ثمانين جلدة ولاتقبلوا لهم شهادة ابدا واولئك هم الفاسقون

24:5 الا الذين تابوا من بعد ذلك واصلحوا فان الله غفور رحيم

I don't believe there is much more to say about these Noble Verses, because they are pretty explaining themselves very well.  But I just want the reader to note the following:

1-  Noble Verse 24:2 gives the punishment for fornication.  Many Muslims also believe that this includes the married adulterers.  I've thoroughly went through this at:

  • Was Islam's Muta (temporary marriage) Law immoral?  What does the Bible say about it?
  • 2-  We see Noble Verses 24:3-4 are linked together with the big And as I called it.

    3-  We then see immediately after them in Noble Verse 24:5 that Allah Almighty forgives the sinners and allows them to become normal Believers again, and to have the rights of the Believers again if AND ONLY IF:

            (a)-  They repent.
            (b)-  They mend and prove that they truly repented.

    A person could verbally "repent".  This is worthless.  This is why the mending condition is there.  If the person does not mend, then he/she should not attempt to marry a Believer, because that could probably cause a great deal of sin to come upon them.

    4-  Otherwise, those who don't mend could end up cheating on their spouses, because they have neither changed nor healed.

      

      

    2-  Conclusion:

    While sin in Islam is big and its consequences are heavy, and sometimes very publically humiliating, and sometimes very socially costing, but it is not the end of the world for the Muslim.  The road for repentance and mending is always open, because Allah Almighty is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.

    If I committed something that is considered a sin in Islam without knowing, will God punish me for it?

    How can GOD Almighty be absolutely Just and Merciful at the same time?  How is justice served when Mercy and Forgiveness of sins are applied to some people and not others?

  • Permission by GOD to bless through lying and deceiving?? [1]  I think these are man's lies in the Bible!

    Who was the sacrificed son?  Isaac or Ishmael?  Even the altered Bible thoroughly supports that it was Ishmael [1] in many passages.  And in Islam there is no "El" (God) in names as in Ishmael or Gabriel in Hebrew?  Is the GOD of Islam different?  Allah Almighty allowed for His Holy Name to be shortened (as "El" in Ishmael, and Lillah for Li-Allah in the Quran, as in Alhamdulillah) in both Islam and Judaism [1].

    Differences between the Noble Quran and Bible only prove Islam's Truthfulness and Divinity.

    GOD became concerned that the Babylonians' Tower that they were constructing will reach Him???

  • And they talk about Taqiya??
      

  • Bible says that Jews from their essence were liars.  From their "birth" they were liars the Old Testament declares them.  This is another proof that the Bible is full of man-made corruption and fabrications, especially in the Jews' ancient history and stories.  Jeremiah 8:8 is thoroughly covered here.

    Made to be prostitutes by GOD:  In 2 Samuel 12:7-12, King David's wives were turned into ***** prostitutes by GOD Almighty [1] as a punishment for David's sins with Bathsheba.  This means that GOD Almighty can create custom Laws for punishment even if they fully contradict GOD Almighty's Moral Code on morality and chastity.  Also, seduction and RAPING of virgins isn't a physically punishable crime in the Bible.  See Deuteronomy 22:25-29, Exodus 22:16-17.
