Allah blesses women

<< < (10/10)

As-Salâmu `Alaykum Wa Rahmatullâhi Wa Barakâtuh.
Just to make things clear, Islam is a religion of ease, not difficulty. Islam is probably the only religion that actually was made in such a way that every human is capable of following physically, mentally, and emotionally. Allâh, the Most Glorified and Exalted, and His Noble Messenger (may Almighty Allâh bless him and grant him peace) do not make anything unlawful just like that. There is always great wisdom and a vital reason behind their commands. When something is made unlawful, it has been made unlawful because it either harms the person doing it or him and the people around him. People oftenly think bad about us Muslims and Islam as a whole because, apart from all the false rumors and propaganda, they criticize Islam and it's commandments without knowing the truth behind them.
To begin with, to whoever said that Allâh, the Almighty and Sublime, only likes males and detests females; of the most repeated verses that Allâh, the Almighty and Sublime, stressed on in the Glorious Qur'ân is one that states, "Bring your proof if you are truthful." If you make any kind of claim in life, you must at least bring some kind of proof or evidence to support your claim. You cannot just claim to own a piece of land without getting some sort of evidence to prove it. Until you find a verse in the Glorious Qur'ân or a Hadîth supporting what you have said, you have no right to say such a thing. On the contrary, if a female is pious and fears Allâh, the Most Gracious and Merciful, He would like her and she would be more honorable in His sight than all males who are less pious and God-fearing than her. Allâh, the Most Glorified and Exalted, states in Sûratul-Hujurât, verse number 13. "Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allâh is the most righteous of you." [49:13]
With regards to the post dealing with Islam and polygamy; as mentioned previously in this post, people criticize Islam without knowing the truth and wisdom behind it. The Glorious Qur'ân permits but does not command a male to have more than just one wife. As a matter of fact, the Glorious Qur'ân stipulates that he is to have one wife. In addition, olygamy provides a reasonable solution to some of life's problems. When there is a shortage of males, for instance after a devastating war, many females will not be capable of finding husbands for themselves. Most women in that case, given the option, would prefer being co-wives than not being married in the first place. Polygamy was and still is practiced by many other religions and cultures aside of Islam. It is also permitted in Biblical and post-Biblical Judaism. All the way from Abraham, David, and Solomon (peace and blessings be upon them) down to the reformation period, polygamy was practiced. Some people incorrectly assume that Muslim males must have 4 wives thus multiple wives are seldom found in Islam today. If you read up on history, in those days, society allowed males to marry as many wives as they had willed, whereas Islam limited the number of wives to four.
Polygamy is even allowed in the Old Testament. For example, in Exodus 21:10, a male can marry an infinite number of females. In addition, in 2 Samuel 5:13, 1 Chronicles 3:1-9, and 14:3, King David (peace and blessings be upon him) had six wives and numerous concubines. In 1 Kings 11:3, King Solomon (peace and blessings be upon him) was mentioned to have had 700 wives and 300 concubines. In 2 Chronicles 11:21, Rehoboam, the son of King Solomon (peace and blessings be upon him), had 18 wives and 60 concubines. There are many more verses from the Old Testament that permit polygamy, but those above seem sufficient enough to prove the point.

When you get repeatedly turned-on, without being able to succumb to this temptation. It is a torture. It is Tantalus's punishment.

You can exercise self-control on moderate levels of temptation, but beyond some point, it becomes impossible. You cannot build a society by repressing desire. This energy has to flow somewhere. It is better to channel this energy in constructive ways, instead of desperately trying to suppress it with harsh and violent laws (or inner codes of conduct). What did they achieve with this brutal method? In my opinion, just frustration and unhappiness.

In most non-Muslim countries (in the West and elsewhere), they do not need these repressive laws. They distinguish between harrassment and legitimate courtship. In those countries, women have the right to attract men with provocative dress, and they enjoy being respectfully (but confidently) approached and complimented. They also have the right to decline sollicitations (more or less politely) from unwanted approaches, and rejected men silently move on to the next. And life goes on for everyone.

There are many problems associated with this more liberal way of life, but in practice, Muslim societies have certainly not found the solution to them.

Of course Almighty Allah blesses women. Even the Messenger of Allah (may Almighty Allah bless him and grant him peace) said, ""Heaven is under the feet of the mothers." In addition, Islam gave women a higher status than they had ever had and ever will have in history. Watch the video by Yusuf Estes about the rights Islam gave to women.

This thread was a foolishness.

This is the Biggest reason, why I hate Feminists and their thinking as they just want to Undermine Others by Saying " We are submissive, Men Undermine us." and the Polygamy is allowed mainly for widows Assume you are a widow and you have two or more children then What do you think you should marry? 1. Unmarried man 2. Married Man. I Prefer the married one.

--- End quote ---
Who tell you that women Pray Salat behind Men. 100% sure that you were/are not a muslim.
--- Quote from: Antiapartheid ---You carry on as though polygamy were a commandment.
--- End quote ---
It was just Permissible not a Neccessity.
--- Quote from: Antiapartheid ---Mokko, you are a very sensible man.
