Can Women Teach Men?
An Islamic and Biblical Point of View
Lets see what the Bible says about women being able to teach men...
1 Timothy 2:12
I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.
Paul says that women should not teach men. She must remain in silence to learn from men but not teach them.
Lets see what Islam says about women being able to teach men...
Volume 6, Book 61, Number 545:
The Prophet said, "The best among you (Muslims) are those who learn the Qur'an and teach it."
This hadith is general and goes to all Muslims (male or female). It has no restrictions on women being able to teach men. As a matter of fact one of the Prophet wives used to teach men...
In any discussion on the age of Aisha (ra: may Allah be pleased with her) at the time of her marriage with the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may peace and the blessings of Allah be upon him), it is of the greatest relevance to note the pivotal role she played as a teacher, exponent and interpreter of the religion of Islam. (Zahid, Aziz, Age of Aisha (ra) at time of marriage, Source)
On the Prophet's death, Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) became a widow at the age of eighteen or nineteen. However, she had memorized great knowledge from the Prophet (peace be upon him). She stayed in her home teaching men and women. (Muhammad Fathi Mus'ad, The Wives of the Prophet Muhammad: Their Strives and Their Lives, p.65)
So clearly the Bible takes away the right of women to be able to teach the religion to men while Islam gives it to them.

Jesus mentioned Muhammad by the name in the Bible.
Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross. I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken. My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion. I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
