(Hindi Translation required. Can someone help?) (हिंदी अनुवाद में सहायता चाहिए | क्या आप कर सकते हैं?)
Life of a women in Islam is pretty disciplined. Please your husband, stay in protection, wear Hijaab, do not marry people outside of your faith and still worship Allah. What is the return gift? All of the above apply only on women with many more restrictions that do not apply to men in Islam. But those free men have been blessed with explanation of heaven and women have no clue as to what is their end.
So what is actually there for women in Islam? Is it actually what a women wants?
Apart from the topics of Triple Talaq, Halala and Hijaab (discussed through a separate detailed post) which won’t be a part of this post, I’ll talk about issues that aren’t much highlighted but demand attention.
So According to Quran, men are the protectors of women and women should be obedient to men. If women fails to obey her man, she should be beaten until she changes her heart. Now the translation of Quran use the word “lightly beat” very cleverly to fool non-muslims, but intention isn’t any different, since we all know none changes heart with soft beating.
Chapter 4 – Verse 34: Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devouty obedient, and guard in (the husband’s) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly), but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance): for Allah is Most High, Great (above you all).
Many Islamic scholars tried to explain the above verse in good sense but Hadiths are very clear about the feminist intentions of Allah and Prophet Mohammad.
Sunan Abu Dawud: 11:2141: Iyas ibn Abdullah ibn Abu Dhubab reported the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) as saying:Do not beat Allah’s handmaidens, but when Umar came to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and said: Women have become emboldened towards their husbands, he (the Prophet) gave permission to beat them. Then many women came round the family of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) complaining against their husbands. So the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Many women have gone round Muhammad’s family complaining against their husbands. They are not the best among you.
So the Islamic women are to take beatings without question, if complained they’re not the best. But what is the return gift for a women to such beyond logic obedience? Muslims will say that according to Islam women are most respected. But the Hadiths again have something else to say.
Sunan Abu Dawud: 5:2044: Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:
A man came to the Prophet, and said: My wife does not prevent the hand of a man who touches her. He said: Divorce her. He then said: I am afraid my inner self may covet her. He said: Then enjoy her.
Enjoy Her! What is she? Islam doesn’t have a place for convincing anyone. That is true from the very 2nd Chapter of Quran which I will explain in future.
Now people told me that I was mis-interpreting the word “Enjoy Her” in a wrong sense. It is not me but them who misunderstand the word because of blind faith. Quran is very clear on how you must treat your wife.
Chapter 2 – Verse 223: Your wives are as a tilth unto you, so approach your tilth when or how ye will; but do some good act for your souls beforehand; and fear Allah, and know that ye are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give (these) good tidings to those who believe.
Am I again mis-reading the Quran? Hadiths explains the rest.
Sunan Abu Dawud: 2159:
Ibn Abbas said: Ibn Umar misunderstood (the Qur’anic verse, “so come to your tilth however you will”)—may Allah forgive him. The fact is that this clan of the Ansar who were idolaters lived in the company of the Jews who were the people of the Book. They (the Ansar) accepted their superiority over themselves in respect of knowledge, and they followed most of their actions. The people of the Book (i.e. the Jews) used to have intercourse with their women on one side alone (i.e. lying on their backs). This was the most concealing for (the vagina of) women. This clan of the Ansar adopted this practice from them. But this tribe of the Quraish used to uncover their women intensely, and seek pleasure with them from in front and behind and laying them on their backs. When the Muhajirun (the Immigrants) came to Medina, a man married a woman of the Ansar. He began to do the same kind of action with her, but she disliked it, and said to him: We were approached on one side (i.e. lying on back); do it so, otherwise keep away from me. This matter of theirs spread widely, and it reached the Apostle of Allah. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: “Your wives are a tilth to you, so come to your tilth however you will,” i.e. from in front, from behind or lying on the back. By this the verse meant the place of the delivery of the child, i.e. vagina.
Sunan Ibn Majah; 1853: It was narrated that: Abdullah bin Abu Awfa said “When Muadh bin Jabal came from Sham, he prostrated to the Prophet who said: ‘What is this, O Muadh?’ He said: ‘I went to Sham and saw them prostrating to their bishops and patricians and I wanted to do that for you.’ The messenger of Allah said: ‘Do not do that. If I were to command anyone to prostrate to anyone other than Allah, I would have commanded women to prostrate to their husbands. By the One in Whose Hand is the soul of Muhammad! No woman can fulfill her duty towards Allah until she fulfills her duty towards her husband. If he asks her (for intimacy) even if she is on her camel saddle, she should not refuse.’ ”
Jami` at-Tirmidhi: 1160: “When a man calls his wife to fulfill his need, then let her come, even if she is at the oven.”
Sahih-Al-Bukhari: 4:54:460: If a husband calls his wife to his bed (i.e. to have sexual relation) and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning.”
Sahih-Al-Bukhari: 7:62:113: Allah’s Messenger (peebuh) said,”The woman is like a rib; if you try to straighten her, she will break. So if you want to get benefit from her, do so while she still has some crookedness.”
So much respect for a unquestionable obedience. But are men supposed to atleast stay loyal to their wives or they can enjoy anyone they want?
Chapter 4 – Verse 24: Also (prohibited are) women already married; except those whom your right hands possess: thus hath Allah ordained (prohibitions) against you: except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property, – desiring chastity, not fomication. Give them their dowery for the ENJOYMENT you have from them as a duty, BUT IF, after a dower is prescribed, ye agree mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and Allah is All-Knowing All-Wise)
I was told that I misread the line “your right hands possess”. It is again not me but the defenders of faith trying to either fool you or themselves. Hadith is very clear in this respect.
Sunan Abu Dawud: 2155: “The apostle of Allah (duh) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of Apostle of Allah (bruh) were reluctant to have relations with the female captives because of their pagan husbands. So, Allah exalted sent down the Quranic verse (Chapter 4 – Verse 24).
Sunan Abu Dawud 2158: Narrated Ruwayfi ibn Thabit al-Ansari: Should I tell you what I heard the Messenger of Allah صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم say on the day of Hunayn: It is not lawful for a man who believes in Allah and the last day to water what another has sown with his water (meaning intercourse with women who are pregnant); it is not lawful for a man who believes in Allah and the Last Day to have intercourse with a captive woman till she is free from a menstrual course; and it is not lawful for a man who believes in Allah and the Last Day to sell spoil till it is divided.
Men are allowed to have sex with their captives, slaves and even sell them after due split with their companions. So much respect not only for women of faith but for humanity.
What does Quran think of a women when it wants a women to obey the word of Allah and Prophet? A Genius? No.
Chapter 2 – Verse 282: And get two witnesses, out of your own men. And if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her.
Allah clearly says women are not full human, but deficient ones. Hadith is seen is explaining this verse even better.
Sahih Al Bukhari 2658: 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.”
So your Allah and Prophet believes you’re less intelligent. Does it assure you any safeguards from the other clever men? See the Quran blessing women once again.
Chapter 2 – Verse 228: Divorced women shall wait concerning themselves for three monthly periods. And it is not lawful for them to hide what Allah hath created in their wombs, if they have faith in Allah and the Last Day. And their husbands have the better right to take them back in that period, if they wish for reconciliation. And women shall have rights similar to the rights against them, according to what is equitable; but men have a degree over them and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.
Once again Quran allows men to go arbitrary after they send a women SMS saying “Talaq Talaq Talaq” and it is again women who needs to wait for 3 months.
Not only against the husband, but Quran also discriminate women in ancestral rights in property.
Chapter 4 – Verse 11: Allah (thus) directs you as regards your children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females; if only daughters, two or more, their share is two-thirds of the inheritance; if only one, her share is a half.
Please interpret this at your will. I do not have words for this because the end goes completely bizarre for feminists who find empowerment in Hijaab.
Sahih Al Bukhari: 9:88:219: “Never will succeed such a nation as makes a woman their ruler”
Now we’ve got so much in Quran, Hadiths and Islam to say that women should suffer throughout her life. But what she gets in the end of her life or afterlife? Quran has complete silence on it. And so does feminists supporting Islam. Many scholars like Zakir Naik have been seen explaining this topic but have no authentic word of Allah or Prophet to talk on it.
Quran only focused on creating an army which could help Prophet conquer the world. If you being a women still have a reason to justify and prove me wrong, I’d like to hear that and apologize if convinced. Please leave your comments below to discuss.
Peace be upon you WOMEN.
