Arab women! It’s time to stop cursing your fate! Enough is enough! It is a pity to be born as women in Muhammadan society in general, and in the Arabian Muhammadan society in particular. It’s a 14-century-old curse upon you. Let us not lose hope. Instead of resigning to your fate, as you have been forced to for centuries, it is time to stand up to reverse the fate of your daughters and granddaughters. (Read Part 2 here)
You Arab women are the direct descendents of the deprived and oppressed Safiyah, Jwairiyah, Raihaana, Umm Qirfa, Asma Bint Marwaan and thousands of others. It is the time to bring back the freedom, which your foremothers enjoyed in the pre-Islamic period, as well as the women of other parts of the present world.
Having worked in Saudi Arabia for many years, I have known about the pain of Arab Muslim women, which people of other parts of the world do not know. It is nearly impossible for you to think, demonstrate or protest openly for your rights in Arab countries. It is the responsibility of those Arab women, who have managed to “escape” from Arab countries to the other parts of the world, to raise their voice in support of the Arab women sufferers.
Niqa’b: Uniform of the Female Prisoners of Islam
Instead, it is amazing and unfortunate to watch pro-Islamic demonstrations ‘against freedom’ in the USA and UK, organized by Hijaab or Niqab wearing Arab women, with hateful banners. This proves the extent of centuries-old oppression, which enslaved the minds of Arab women, making it difficult for them to realize their rights and dignity and stand up for them.
Those women, who wear Niqab in the free western world, actually commit crime against all women living in Arab countries. It is an insult to all brave women in the Muslim countries, who sacrificed their lives against this ridiculous, barbaric nonsense.
Even after “escaping” to the free world, their slavery to Islam continues and most of those Arab women are forced to wear the symbol of this slavery, namely the Niqaab. They are forced to fight and agitate “against freedom” in western countries. This may be due to commands of their male masters or that the Arab women themselves have become too habitual to the centuries-old symbol of suppression that they feel suffocated or unease to breathe in free atmosphere.
It is unimaginable for those Arab Muslim women living under Sharia law to raise their voice against such oppression. But for those, who have managed to escape from Arab countries, continuing the symbol of shame is unforgivable. The law of the free country you are residing is on your side. All you need is “guts” to throw the black tarpaulin from your society.
You are not alone in this fight. Already there are many freedom fighters in the battlefield. Especially, I feel proud to name some of the women freedom fighters, like Wafa Sultan, Nonie Darwish, Ayaan Hishri Ali, Taslima Nasreen and so on.
Try to study and know about the freedom that your foremothers enjoyed, before the introduction of hateful and oppressive Islam. You are the daughters of the suppressed women like Safiyyah, Juwairiyah, Umm Qirfa, Asma Bint Marwaan, Raihaana and thousands of others, whose tragic history has been buried unrecorded in the sand of the Arabian desert.
You are the educated, intellectual daughters of today’s free world. It is your responsibility to put an end to the centuries old suppression. Your inner conscious will never forgive you, if you still continue surrendering to the slavery of Islam out of fear. It is the responsibility of each Arab woman living in the free world to stand against this slavery and raise your voice against this medieval nonsense. Only your voices will free the women, whom you left behind in your Arab Nations as well as it will determine the fate of your daughters and granddaughters.
Burying the Female Children Alive during Jahiliyah -- A Myth
Arab women! Try to study and analyze facts from Islamic sources about the freedom enjoyed by Arab women prior to the arrival of Muhammadan cult. Oppression of women is one of the worst things psychopathic Muhammad imposed upon his society. Yet Muslim clerics – all males – boast that Islam freed the women from the shackles of pre-Islamic barbaric customs and has given them equal rights. Anyone, who read Islamic sources, will realize the facts that women in the pre-Islamic Arab world enjoyed much better status and dignity. The concept of burying the female child alive in the period of JAHILIYA, the so-called period of IGNORANCE, is largely a lie. There might have been isolated incidents due to famine. In contrast, killing of young girls has taken place in recent years for silly reasons.
Statistics Shows Men vs Women Ratio 1:1 across the World
According to Wikipedia, statistics of gender ratio among Men vs. Women across is about 1:1 ratio. On what logic the all-knowing Allah ordered His Muslim men to marry 4 wives? According to Islamic sources, pre-Islamic Arabs buried their female-children, because they had considered them as a symbol of shame. If this is the case, given above statistics of male-female ration across the world, each Arab man of pre-Islamic times could not have even one woman to marry.
But the Islamic books states otherwise. Arab men during Muhammad’s time and also in the pre-Islamic period had several wives. It was their culture and practice to have several wives. Here is the list of wives of Muhammad and his forefathers according to Islamic sources.
Statistics of Wives Owned by Males of Muhammad’s Family
- Muhammad’s father Abdullah died during his honeymoon period. Otherwise he could have married as many as his son Muhammad.
- Abd al-Muthalib, Muhammad’s grandfather, had 5 wives (officially).
- Hashim Ibn Abd Manaaf, Muhammad’s Great Grandfather, had “at least” 5 wives.
- Muhammad’s Great Great Grandfather had 4 wives.
- Abu Bakr, Muhammad’s friend, father-in-law and successor ruler, had married 4 wives.
- Umar Ibn al-Khattaab, Muhammad’s another father-in-law and the 3rd king of Islam, had 9 wives.
- Uthmaan bin Afwaan, Muhammad’s son-in-law and the 4th king of Islam, had married 9 wives.
- Muhammad’s cousin, son-in-law and the 5th king of Islam, Ali have got 7 wives.
- Abu Sufiyaan -- Muhammad’s cousin, enemy due to his custodianship of the Kaaba, Muhammad’s father-in-law, and later ruler of Najraan appointed by Muhammad -- had 4 wives.
- Muhammad, the Prophet of Allah and the 1st king of Islam, had 11 official, 6 semi-official, and countless un-official, wives.
- Muhammad’s Grandson Husain had married 5 wives.
- Muhammad’s another Grandson Hassan, proved he to be the real descended of Muhammad, by marrying more than 70 wives. Some records say Hassan had even more.
The above statistics denotes only their official wives. Apart from these wives the Arabs used to have sex with their number of slave-girls too. Still, they are continuing this practice with their housemaids.
If the Arabs of Jahiliya had killed their female-children, then how could Muhammad, his companions and his forefathers had so many wives? If this information, from the Islamic sources is authentic, then which information is wrong? Either they killed their female children and couldn’t leave a single woman to get married or their entire information is fabricated? It is Muhammad and his followers, the victors, who informed us, of the alleged depravity of the Jahiliya Arabs.
CONCLUSION: The above statistics are not restricted to Muhammad’s family alone. It prevailed among the entire Arab societies. So, Muhammad brought nothing new.
The aim of formation of Islam by Muhammad is not for spiritual purpose, but for political purpose to snatch the custodianship from his cousins and subsequently to establish his supremacy in the entire Arab peninsula.
Let us analyze the status of women in the so called “Days of Ignorance”, i.e. “The Jaahiliyah”, from Islamic sources itself in part 2 of this article.
