Islam Under Scrutiny by Ex-Muslims

Child Abuse in Islam

Muslims are not the only people, who pass on their religious beliefs to children; this is a standard practice all over the world. But Islam is a very demanding religion even to adults and assumes total control of its adherents’ lives. Resulting from the mass immigration of Muslims to Western countries, millions of Muslim children now live in the West and their number is bound to increase. This situation creates a dilemma, to which the West is either oblivious or in denial: whilst Muslim children enjoy full protection of the Western laws, and, at the same time, they have to abide by Islamic laws. This article will shed some light on some practices that are forced upon Muslim children living in the West, which amount to "child abuse" of one form or another.

 

Definition of a child

The transition between childhood and adulthood is a gradual process, associated with both intellectual and sexual maturity. The medical profession, as I am told, considers childhood to extend up to the age of sixteen. However, the demarcation-line between childhood and adulthood remains slightly different in different countries of the world. In most of the Western world, children are considered to have reached their adulthood at the age of eighteen.

In Islam, the separation line between childhood and adulthood is based on sexual maturity. In general, boys are considered to have reached adulthood when they grow pubic hair or show other signs of sexual maturity. In case of girls, the onset of menstruation is considered to signal that they have reached their adulthood. When Prophet Mohammed committed the mass-slaughter of the Jews of Bani Qurayza by killing all the adult males (the rest, women and children were taken as slaves), he used the growth of pubic hair as a mark of adulthood of young boys.

In modern civilized standard, Mohammed’s marriage to Aysha, and his having sex with her at the age of nine, is a crime, called pedophilia. However, Muslims call it an ordinary marriage, even a Sunnah to be emulated by Muslims for all times. They even justify it on the supposition that girls in hot countries tend to reach sexual maturity faster than in cold countries of the West. Without any evidence, Muslims assume that Aysha had a menstruation before her marriage and conclude that Mohammed had sex with an adult, aged nine! This justification by Muslims is an indication of what they understand as maturity; it is simply sexual maturity and has nothing to do with the mind.

The Islamic definition of maturity means that many children, particularly girls as young as nine years of age, may be treated as adults, because their menstrual cycles start early. Reaching adulthood is an important turning point in the lives of those children and involves fundamental changes in all aspects of their lives because it affects their religious duties such as performing prayers and fasting.

Indoctrination

Muslims teach their children about the Satan, hell and paradise from the moment they start to communicate with them. These teachings are used as a means to discipline the children and encourage them to be obedient to parents. One of the first words Arab children learn is ‘haram’ meaning forbidden by Allah; indeed, it is one of the most commonly used words by the Arabs. From my own experience as an Arab, the peril of being burnt in hellfire was a real nightmare; it was used an intimidation tool by my elder relatives round the clock to make me listen to them, eat food, wash hands, do work, stop playing or go to bed.

As a child, I had a troubling feeling of guilt because I appeared to be doing wrong things most of the time. I had to struggle to suppress my worries that, unless I work very hard for the rest of my life, my ‘hasanat’ (good doings) vs. ‘sayaat’ (sins) balance may send me to hell. I was not the only child to have such concerns; other children had similar qualms, which we occasionally discussed with each other! Childhood is about playing and having fun with no worries whatsoever. However, Muslim children, even from the preschool age, have a great deal to worry about this life and the life after this. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised to figure out that children do not go to hell anyway in Islam; it was, however, a little too late, because I had already grown up.

One of the most irrational things a Muslim child has to do is to memorize the Quran by heart. I consider myself to be lucky, because, in my days, we were only expected to memorize only a few chapters from the Quran, albeit from the last pages of the Koran that are in the difficult Meccan-style language. Nowadays, thanks to the resurgence of Islamic awareness, children are increasingly required to remember the whole Quran by heart! Memorizing an entire book, often in a foreign language and without understanding it, affects the child’s abilities to comprehend anything else. This memorizing ritual says it all about the Muslims' intellectual reasoning: read everything but understand nothing.

Ibadat: Prayers and Fasting


 

In theory, all ibadat, like prayers and fasting, are obligatory only to mature Muslims. However, parents are required, not only to teach, but also to force their children to perform those ibadat. According to Bukhari and Muslim and all other hadith books, Mohammed’s order is crystal clear in this regard: “teach your children how to pray from the age of seven, and beat them (if they don’t do it well) at the age of ten”.

Fortunately for me, my parents were not that keen and they did not beat me at all. However, an increasing number of Muslim parents nowadays do beat their children if they don’t pray. Only a few months ago, I heard of a Muslim professional with high level of education and good social standing, who was applying this Islamic rule on all his children. He was caught only when his eleven-year-old son suffered from serious injuries. The real shock, however, is that he is not alone, all strict Muslims would not hesitate to do it and they get away with it.

Young Muslim children in western schools perform prayers and do fasting, which can harm them. The schools do not only allow the children to suffer because of this practice but they also encourage it by providing the special time and special facilities. Soon, the fasting month of Ramadan will fall in the summer months with its long days, in some countries that means about eighteen hours of starvation! I know a Muslim who performs all five daily prayers in the mosque, which is about twenty minutes drive, he wakes up early in the morning to start his journey to the mosque, accompanied by his 14 years old son!

Do the western child protection organizations have the courage to protect these children from such suffering?

Child play

Muslim children are not allowed to join the others and enjoy the fun of playing with dolls or figures because Islam prohibits images of humans or animals. They are not allowed to watch popular children cartoons like the notorious Micky mouse, against which many fatwas have been issued. In Saudi Arabia, they discourage children from committing the sin of painting human or animal figures unless they draw a line across the neck as a sign that the figure has no life in it!

Hijab and the Islamic outfit

Muslim women suffer because of Hijab although they wouldn’t admit it. It is a religious stigma that tells the others everything about her beliefs without even talking to her and works like a declaration that the bearer has to be treated differently. Hijab and Islamic dress produces an isolated and psychologically traumatized woman because it denies women their own feminine instincts of showing their hair and beauty.

It is common to see young Muslim girls with hijab and full Islamic outfit even in the primary schools. Those young children suffer unconsciously because of their Islamic dress. They become aware of their sexuality from an early age and look at the other males as sexual predators. In addition to the psychological damage, the Islamic dress is an unhealthy dress. During the summer months, hijab and the rest of the Islamic dress are uncomfortable and can become embarrassingly smelly because of the excessive sweating. Recently, there have been many reports about the high incidence of the bone disease (rickets) in Muslim women because of their lack of exposure to sunlight which is essential to produce vitamin D, the lack of which causes bone disease.

Violence and Suicide bombing

Muslim children are indoctrinated to believe they are victims of world conspiracy that aims to eliminate them. They are regularly fed on the horrific and disturbing scenes of injuries, blood and death that even adults cannot watch. These children have learned Quranic verse 2:120 that tells them all about this secret world conspiracy: “.. the Jews and the Christians will never be happy about you unless you follow them...”

Having told the Muslims that everyone in the world hates them, the Quran now emphasises in a number of places that Muslims must never trust or befriend the others, like this verse 4:89 “ ....take them and kill them wherever you find them and choose no friends or helpers from them..”

The Quran repeats its orders in a dozen places; the message is important and clear: never trust the unbelievers no matter how nice they may appear to you, even if they were close family members. Verse 9:23 leaves no doubt about the gravity of this message of hate: “...O believers, do not take your fathers or brothers as allies and friends if they prefer to disbelieve...”

Do not be friendly with your father or brothers! So much for the family values in Islam.

Muslim children are often indoctrinated from an early stage to aspire to become martyrs; they have sometimes been used as suicide bombers. Hamas has pioneered the practice of using

young children as frontline soldiers during the Palestinian intifada. The Iranian clerical regime have created child-martyrs brigade. The basic human instinct, the civilized human responsibility, is to protect children during conflicts and wars; but the Islamists have reversed this natural human propensity and responsibility for pushing children to the front lines armed with stones, and sometimes explosive belts, to kill and be killed.

The shia Muslims mourn the death of Al Imam Al Hussain on ashoura day by going to the streets and start beating their chests. They use tools such as knives and swords to self inflict injuries and cause bloodshed, the scenes of blood and sufferings are not for the weak hearted. Shia children do not only see all this but sometimes they are also made to participate in it.

Child Abduction

Muslims’ marriages to non Muslims are always fragile marriages because they are built on lies. Most of these relations tend to involve North African or Asian Muslims. Of course, it is always a Muslim husband and a non Muslim wife, because it cannot happen the other way round. Also it is almost always a dark skinned Muslim who marries a white woman, because those Muslims consider white skin on a woman as a sign of beauty. Muslim families may love to see one of their sons bringing home a white European woman; this is often seen as a good achievement. In theory, the non Muslim wife can keep her religion but her children must be raised as Muslims. In any case there is usually tremendous pressure on her to convert sooner rather than later. Conversion makes it easier for the family to tame a stranger woman with a different culture. The typical scenario involves projecting Islam as a religion of peace and good family values that is based on the Quran, which is the unchanged words of Allah. The Quran is described to her as a book of amazing miracles and language beauty but it is a misfortune that she doesn’t speak the language to enjoy all those wonderful beauties!

A converted wife is easier to adapt to Muslims’ culture and easier to control using her new religion as a means of discipline. A converted woman soon discovers the lies and the marriage falls apart, which reflects badly on the children because they must be separated from their mother. The Islamic law very strictly ‘protects’ children from being raised by infidels and requires their separation from their mothers. This is a tragedy that is happening everyday all over the world.

The above are only some of the Islamic practices that would normally provoke outrage in the west and described as child abuse. The western countries have already accepted those children in their countries and are under moral obligation to protect them from the practices of Islam. The alternative is to raise children with a jaundiced view of the world who may grow up only to become suicide bombers.

I agree that there is no such thing as 'muslim' children,'christian' children,'hindu' children,'jewish' children,etc. All are just human siblings born with an innocent and clear mind with no clutter of religion,cult and prejudices. The adults bring in all the discordant sounds ,clutter of dogmas that poisons the young minds and breeds hatred! This is specially true of monotheistic semetic cults of Islam,christianity and judaism. These are proselytising cults ,highly commercial and unprincipled. Each of these cults preach hatred ,debunk other belief-systems calling them unpleasant and vicious names ,and instigate violence in order to survive and flourish , and the clergies have a vested interest in keeping this thing up for their own survival. Look at the money these clergies make ( be it mullah,pastors, evangelists,Bishops,Cardinals or whatever) and their luxurious lifestyle without having to really work for it except conning the gullible masses , rousing them hysterically in an otherwise peaceful world and polish off their hardearned money which is also taxfree to these conmen/conwomen! It is in their interest to keep the discords alive ,heighten tensions , incite people to violence ,all in the name of their "God" , who we know doesn't exist , so also the promises of 'Heaven' in the "Hereafter" , and "Hell" if you don't submit and comply with their irrationalities and absolute muck and bullshit! Christians are not above board either with so many of their priests/pastors involved in homosexuality, child-molestation,sodomy,etc. If you read the Bible, the Old Testament is full of such things ,while Muhamad epitomised these worst immoral practices in his life! So what can you expect from these semetc cults? Only if they reject their cult and inculcate secular values is there any hope for peace and sanity.

We might have a age which is a minimum for sex but is it being practised in uk as we have more and more young mums as young as 9 and average sexual intercourse in uk is at the age of 13 but reports of earlier have been reported so it might be fair from medical point of view that you have reached an adult hood when you reach sexual maturity and its true in hot climat this seems to be at younger age then in cold climate.

You are living in fools paradise when you say "look at rape cases in usa and europe..." In the USA and Europe ,as well as in other non-muslim countries, rapes,child molestation is recognised as a crime and reported,while in islamic countries rapes ,child molestation,sodomy,etc are instruments of "islamic" justice. Women get massed raped to compensate the honour of another person/persons/family/tribe/sect or whatever. In muslim countries women reporting rape is in turn stigmatised and "punished" for allowing the rape to happen. She is publicly humiliated and subject to the barbaric 'sharia' law of getting public lashing. So much for islamic justice! A women reporting rape has to produce 4 male 'witnesses ' to get anything called 'justice' in islamic society! Mind you ,she should have 4 witnesses viewing her in the process of getting raped! The four male members must be some kind of perverted voyuers to sit and watch a women getting raped rather than helping her to get the rapist punished before the vile act! .What kind of perversion and wickedness is this ? And how can you expect any women to get any justice from this barbaric system which humilates and punishes the victim rather than the perpetrators?! Rape,sodomy,child molestation ,loot,plunder,arson,etc are justified in your quran and 'sunna' by your self-proclaimed 'prophet' , a veritable devil in human form! So look into your own rotten cult going in the name of "religion" ,polluting the meaning of religion itself before you castigate others.

I agree in some muslim countries its not a nice thing to report a rape but this has nothing to do with islam but with culture instead,same thing happens here as well 90% of the cases are not reported, salmas point is valid about rape cases in eu and usa compare to muslim world,here are some facts for uk ,and facts speak louder then words,//// At least 47,000 adult women are raped every year in the UK. The majority of offenders are known to the victim,In 2004 the conviction rate for rape was 5.3% - the lowest rate on record its a joke,, Nearly a third of people (30%) say a woman was partially or totally responsible for being raped,In 85.7% of recorded rape crimes the suspect was known to the victim between 75-95% of rapes are never reported to the police////75-95% cases r never reported here so lets aleast agree with some of facts here. if the rapest knew he will be punished not sent to disney land for this crime he would not have raped any way but this country is a joke they get every thing they want in prison on the expese of the tax payers.

to salma: No Muslim woman who wears a scarf would say she suffers of it, or hates it. Also No Muslim would say the Quran is such a boring book to read, they all claim it has calming effect on them. They all would claim that they love performing prayers Hijab does cause psychological damage to all who wear it in a non Muslim majority area. That includes nuns and you Salma. You are already excessively aware of your sexuality by thinking that men are after your meat. Remember Salma that western women are not half naked, they are just modest and elegant, and that is how a normal woman likes to feel and likes to look. In Islamic countries, in the Gulf States in particular, men are hungry sexual predators because they are so deprived of any glimpses of the other sex. The Islamic way of bringing up boys and girls is based on the assumption that whenever a man meats a woman then the Satan joins immediately ( a hadith by Mohammed). In the west, or in any country where Muslims are not the majority, a woman with a hijab attracts attention, not because she is beautiful but because she is abnormal. Unlike Muslims, men in the west are not hungry sexual predators because they are used to women. They only think of women when they need sex and normal men do not need sex continuously. People who are hungry for food always think of food and would eat any food available at any time, this the case in countries where food is always in short supply. But when there is plenty of food people only think of it when they need a meal and get on with their lives after that.

It is your choice to wear the hijab.Why do some Muslim countries force women to wear it?e.g.Iran,Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia.As for the rape rate in Saudi Arabia,the women there can't go out without a male relative,so the likelyhood of rape is almost nil.If the money from oil and Hajj decreased,and the men had to earn their living (by other means and not trickled down from those), women who can't drive now might start driving,and with that a male relative always accompanying a woman would gradually die out.The Nuns make a concious committment to take the vows,but not when they are young and maniputable,so they accept the dress code. Also where Sharia applies,if a woman is raped and there were 20 WOMEN witnesses,the man can't be convicted.So Salma if you were a witness there,your testimony would be worthless.

well I know woman dont suffer by wearing scarf,quran might be a story book for you but not for the muslims its a book of law which doesnt get changed with time.in west to look beautiful and sexy the more naked flesh you show the sexier you look(and plz dont deny this)im gona quote your words below//men in the west are not hungry sexual predators because they are used to women. They only think of women when they need sex and normal men do not need sex continuously. People who are hungry for food always think of food and would eat any food available at any time, this the case in countries where food is always in short supply. But when there is plenty of food people only think of it when they need a meal and get on with their lives after that. /// this how much woman is respected she is VIEWED as a food when its time for sex.and you can eat(have sex with) anyone you fancy cus there is plenty of food(woman)around.bravo Mumin Salih this is view of the west for a woman " a sex object" have it when ever you want,this is another reason why islam tells us to get married as soon as we are able to so we dont have to go out side to "EAT"(have sex)with any one,and of course if you have "EATEN" home there will be no need to "EAT" from outside.

To the poster of 15:20:22 -0500 No, you don’t know that women (in non Muslims societies ) do not suffer psychologically because of hijab. You may deny it but Muslims are always in denial. Women Meat is an Islamic term famously used by sheikh Hilali of Australia, and by the Salma, who referred to her body as meat. I use the Islamic language when talking to Muslims. The Quran disdains women, it is a book ‘revealed’ only to men. Women are only mentioned when they concern men, just like their other possessions (example cattle!). In the Quran, Allah ignores women and only speaks to them through men even in those matters that are of serious concern to women. When Allah explained which women relations a man can or cannot marry, he spoke to men. When He explained about polygamy or divorce, he spoke to men. When He wanted to explain the sexual positions allowed in Islam, He explained them to men(2:223). Quranic verse Q.3: 14 says it all. Read this: (Arabic: zuyyna li nnassi hubbul shahawati mina al nissaai …) translation: Fair in the eyes of MANKIND is the desire of things they covet: Women and sons; Heaped-up hoards of gold and silver; horses branded; and cattle and well-tilled land. The verse is about human desires; the first of those desires is women. Allah did not notice that women are actually part of mankind, she is only part of desires . In verse 2:223 Quran says (Your women are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will…) men are allowed to have sex with their women in any position they (the men) like, standing, sitting, on the side, without mentioning what women like.

The fact that you describe a female not wearing a 'hijab' or better still wearing a black sack with peeping holes is more honourable than go with modern apparels ,which makes a woman appear "meat" for males ,according to you ,betrays the depraved condition of your mind. It shows how the muslim mind is obnoxiously brainwashed into this cult of loot,plunder and rape of all "infidels". It is sheer savagery ,lewdity and utter barbarism. That is the cult of islam!

Nuns, by choice wear their garments and it is not for life but for a certain amount of time. Also, they can have an eduation without the consent of a man and are not referred to as "toys" as mohammed referred to women. Also, you are also wrong about the fact that many muslim women would love not to have to wear the burka(especially in 100 degree heat but are forced to do so. An American reporter was on a little row boat in the middle of a lake and she took off her ugly burka but a man on a boat quickly motioned for her to put it back on.

Information on the internet! They can rape, kidnap non muslim women, kill other people but truth is being spread all around the world with something some muslims detest, the computer! Why do they hate the computer so much? It is the biggest threat to their power. For centuries they have manipulated and suppressed the truth about mohammed(pee be upon him) and other things. Now, the truth is being leaked and many muslims have left that cult because of it!

Muslim woman who will be taking a short part in Obama's inauguration is linked to Hamas according to Fox News. I know the U.N. doesn't want us to label terrorism as a crime against humanity "for it may offend Muslims" BUT I WANT YOU ISLAMIST FART HEADS TO READ THIS!: TEACHING A LITTLE KID TO BLOW HIS/HERSELF UP IS A HORRID ACT OF A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY. YOU DON'T LIKE THAT I CALL IT THAT? YOU CAN KISS MY BUTT! The good thing about Israel's little war against Hamas(TOTALLY JUSTIFIED despite thousands of islamic ass holes who are protesting against it!) is that over 1,000 future terrorists were killed! If 6,000 missles were fired into your country you would want an immediate stop to it! But, you crap heads only think of the people you have the "right" to kill! If a country acts in self defence you protest it calling it "unjust." Stupid cowfarts!

First of all, your top cleric in Saudi Arabia has said a muslim man can now marry a little girl-THAT IS ISLAM AND IS CHILD ABUSE!). Muslims putting human crap in a little girl's birthday cake in the US and Britain IS ISLAMIC CHILD ABUSE! The gang rapes that your clerics defend around the world of non-muslim women IS HUMAN ABUSE ALTHOUGH YOUR KAFIR LAWS SAY A MUSLIM MAN CAN HAVE UNLIMITED SEX WITH A NON-MUSLIM WOMAN WITH "NO QUESTIONS ASKED" IS ISLAMIC HUMAN ABUSE! THE FACT THAT BAD THINGS HAPPEN IN BRITAIN THAT MAY NOT BE THE FAULT OF ISLAMISTS DOES NOT MAKE THE BAD THINGS THAT ARE THE FAULT OF ISLAMISTS JUSTIFIED! YOU FOLKS TO THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN! YOU CITE BAD THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO PEOPLE THAT MAY NOT BE LINKED TO ISLAMISTS TO JUSTIFY THE HORRID ACTS OF TERRORISM(crap in food, gang rapes, kidnappings, murderings!) that ARE commited by Islamists AND ARE BEING JUSTIFIED BY ISLAMIC CLERICS! THERE'S ONE BIG DIFFERENCE HERE!!!!!!!!!: BRITISH LAW DOES NOT JUSTIFY THE BAD THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO IT'S PEOPLE THAT MAY NOT BE LINKED TO ISLAMISTS. BUT, ISLAMISTS JUSTIFY THE BAD THINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING TO NON-MOHAMMEDANS BY ISLAMISTS!!!!!!

ANY BOOK THAT ADVOCATES WIFE BEATING(SURA 4:34) CLEARLY IS NOT FOR WOMEN'S RIGHTS. THE TRUTH IS, ISLAM IS THE WORST RELIGION IN THE WORLD FOR WOMEN! MOHAMMED HIMSELF REFERRED TO WOMEN AS "A TOY" AND A WOMAN WHO HAD A CHILD BY A PREVIOUS HUSBAND CAN BE FORCED NOT TO CARE FOR HER CHILD BY HER NEW HUSBAND. WOMEN ARE THE MAJORITY OF HELL-DWELLERS IN ISLAM!

The Quran is the only book in the world that advocates wife beating and Islamists say that that means,"women's rights." Islam is the only cult in the world that says a husband can confine his wife to her room as long as he wants which they call that,"women's rights." If a woman shows her face(a Muslim actually said this!) and hair that makes her a "prostitute."(NO! YOU MORONS! THAT MAKES HER BEAUTIFUL!). Mohammed couldn't control himself so he even married a 6 year old girl and a top Muslim cleric in Saudi Arabia says a man can marry young girls!--they may again call that,"women's rights" BUT A LITTLE GIRL SHOULD BE PLAYING WITH HER TOYS AND FRIENDS AND NOT BE FORCED TO MARRY AN ISLAMIST PSYCHO-PERVERT! Islamists will often blame their terrorist attacks(even when they kill one another!) on Israel. So, let me get this straight-if my next door neighbor is an enemy of mine, that justifies me going down the street and killing a friend of his?! The gang rapes of women(which, a Muslim cleric defends by the way!) is also the fault of Israel? The putting crap in a child's birthday cake is the fault of Israel? WHAT KIND OF NONSENSE ARE WE DEALING WITH?! MOHAMMED COULDN'T CONTROL HIMSELF SO MILLIONS OF WOMEN SINCE HAVE TO SUFFER FOR IT?! I can't see the logic behind this! WHY SHOULD SO MANY SUFFER FOR WHAT SOME PSHYCO-PATHIC-NITWIT DID AND TAUGHT?! The fact that they may be jealous that we in the West respect our women to let them have an education, wear what they want(why don't men have to wear a burka since there may be some women out there with a lust problem?!) and have the right to vote doesn't mean you have the right to take those rights away from us you fartheads! GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY IF YOU ARE GOING TO DO THAT! DON'T TRY TO IMPOSE YOUR CRAP ON US! Oh! By the way:MUSLIM WOMEN GET PINCHED, GROPED, RAPED, POURED GASOLINE ON THEM AND SET ABLAZE AND IT IS CALLED AN "HONOR KILLING!" In Islam, a woman has to have at least two witnesses to a man's one, so if something horrible happens to her by another islamist, she has a much more terrible time prosecuting the injustice! AND MUSLIMS WANT TO DO THE SAME THING OVER HERE?! ISLAMIST BASTARDS!!!! HERE AT LEAST THOSE THINGS ARE AGAINST THE LAW AND WILL NOT BE CALLED AN "HONOR KILLING!"

I wouldn't like to say must, but being born into a Muslim family, i was devoid of happiness. i was abused, and i am shredded now as i don't know what to do. I am manically depressed, i was dyslexic, i am going sort of schizophrenic and i don't know what to do. when i look back i can only find one reason to all my sufferings in my age of 20 years, its being born into a Muslim family where they want to control your life. It doesn't amazes me why so many are turning terrorist, cause not all go schizophrenic cause not all are coward like me. I am sorry for my life as a Muslim. i wont linger to it once i break away, i hope to find my way.

I am sorry for your 20 years in Islam. What a horrid waste of 20 years of one's life! But, the fact you have gotten out of it means that there is hope that the remaining years of your life will be much better. You were abused. A woman(former Muslim in her book,"the Hidden Face of Eve") said that her time in Islam was like being a slave. But, she has a new life now. A happier one, a life that allows her to think. This does not change what you have gone through but it DOES indicate that you can start life anew, out of the shipwreck you were in and into a life of peace! I will be praying for you. Sorry you had to grow up in that!

What absolute filth. Islam is a scholarly religion that requires intellect and thinking, not the filthy assertions of perverts. Below are some extracts from an article I have written destroying the "pedophilia" claim by Ali Sina. Before i begin, I ask why do people demonize Islam. The talmud actually mandates sex with a 3 yr old girl, the old testament tells the story of how moses and his men killed young babies and women who have been with a man and took the virgins for themselves. It is non-muslim countries that have the highest incidences of rape and pedophilia, http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_rap_percap-crime-rapes-per-capita Any christian or jew who accuses Islam of allowing pedophilia are hypocrites as such actions are justified within there very texts. And further any christian or westerner who attempts to assert that Islam allows rape is also guilty of such hypocrisy. Due to shortened life expectancy early marriage was a necessity upon societies of the past. According to (http://www.parliament.uk/commons/lib/research/rp99/rp99-111.PDF research done by the British government, life expectancy has increased by a tremendous amount in the last 100 years, the research states: “The life expectancy of new born children in 1999 is 75 years for boys and 80 years for girls. In 1901 baby boys were expected to live for 45 years and girls 49 years.” So just only in the last 100 years life expectancy has risen in the UK by 26 years. This leads one to wonder what life expectancy must have been 1400 years ago in the harsh arid environments of the Arabian deserts. Well, one cannot be totally sure of this as statistics are a modern invention, but an accurate estimate could be derived from the life expectancy of those living in ancient Rome. According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, (http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/426737/old-age life expectancy was between 20-30. This would mean the earlier you get married the more chance one would have to successfully reproduce, raise children and live a normal life before early death engulfed you. If Mohammed (SAWS) and his followers took the western (AND MODERN) approach of marrying and having kids at 25, or for arguments sake 18 (the lowest possible age UK law allows marriage), then one would get married and die before their kids reached the age of 12 (if they had the good fortune to live until the upper limit of the life expectancy). As one can clearly see, early marriage had to occur, it had nothing to do with paedophilia Marriage 1400 years ago occurred once a girl had reached reproductive age. To further stamp the nail in the coffin of Sina’s odious lie we must refer to science as well as history. According to (http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/924002-overview precocious puberty or early puberty occurs when a girl reaches this stage of development before 8 years old. Therefore, it is not at all uncommon for girls to reach puberty after this, even at the age of 9. One has to ask why if Mohammed (SAWS) was a paedophile did he not consumate his relationship with Aisha (RA) before reproductive age when the marriage was first arranged at 6 years old. A further question that Sina fails to answer is that Mohammed (SAWS) lived in a happy relationship with Khadija (RA) who was 15 years his senior for most of his married life. Finally one must be aware of the constant barrage of verbal attacks aimed at Mohammed (SAWS) by his enemies. I defy anyone (including Sina) to find a quote that states Mohammed (SAWS) was called a paedophile by his enemies at the time, this simply never occurred. Now from this a further question arises, why Aisha (RA)? Why did Mohammed (SAWS) choose Aisha (RA) over many other women? Well the first and most simple answer is that the marriage was recommended to him. According to (Watt, "Aisha", Encyclopaedia of Islam Online), it was Khawla bint Hakim (RA) who suggested that Muhammad (SAWS) marry Aisha (RA) after the death of Muhammad's first wife. So from this one can see that it was not Mohammed (SAWS) who came up with the idea, but rather his concerned companions. This however is not the complete answer. Along with the marriage being divinely ordained by Allah (SWT) (dreams were confirmation that this marriage had to occur), there were other reasons. According to John Esposito in (1988. Islam: The Straight Path. New York: Oxford University Press), Mohammed (SAWS) engaged in “political marriages to cement alliances”. Therefore the marriage was a means of the apostle of Allah (SWT) strengthening his ties with Abu Bakr (RA) who then went on to become the first khalifah. This point makes perfect sense as Mohammed (SAWS) also married Hafsa (RA) the daughter of the second khalifa Omar (RA) and also gave his daughter Ruqayya (RA) to the third khalifah Uthman (RA) in marriage. My next point will also be from science, the science of psychiatry in fact. As someone who has interviewed victims of sexual abuse for research, I am very well aware of the consequences such abuse can have on young female victims. Effects of child sexual abuse include depression, (Roosa M.W., Reinholtz C., Angelini P.J. (1999). "The relation of child sexual abuse and depression in young women: comparisons across four ethnic groups," Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology 27(1):65-76), post-traumatic stress disorder (Widom C.S. (1999). "Posttraumatic stress disorder in abused and neglected children grown up," American Journal of Psychiatry; 156(8):1223-1229), anxiety (Levitan, R. D., N. A. Rector, Sheldon, T., & Goering, P. (2003). "Childhood adversities associated with major depression and/or anxiety disorders in a community sample of Ontario: Issues of co-morbidity and specificity," Depression & Anxiety; 17, 34-42) among other problems. Did Aisha (RA) display any of these signs, the answer is no. In fact quite the opposite occurred, Aisha (RA) grew up and developed into a very remarkable young women. She was one of the greatest Islamic scholars and is given the position of Mother of The Believers. She is one of the most respected women in Sunni Islam and men used to travel miles to gain knowledge from her. She is a ro-model for Muslim women the world over (Goodwin, Jan. Price of Honour: Muslim Women Lift the Veil of Silence on the Islamic World. UK: Little, Brown Book Group, 1994). Her knowledge and status is owed completely to Mohammed (SAWS) who married her and allowed her to be reared with Islamic knowledge and values from a young age, turning her into the beloved mother of all Muslims.
