The Horrible Status of Women in Islam, Part 3

E-mail Print PDF

In part 1 of this article, we have analyzed the facts about why our Muslim women are not free to fast for their god ‘Allah’. In part 2, we have discussed about the disgraceful status Islam has accorded to Muslim women. In this final part, I will analyze further about Muslim women’s inability to oblige to the orders of Allah and who is playing in-between them and their God?

Muslims and Dreams: Why and How Islam Perpetuates Nonsense about Dreams, Visions, and Myths in Muslim Societies

E-mail Print PDF

Being itself a collection of myths, it comes as no surprise that the Quran endorses various kinds of myths and folk tales. The existence of Jinn, Angels, the Jinx, the belief in magic and the random interpretation of dreams are only some of those fables endorsed by the Quran. None of this folklore was invented by Islam; they have been known by ancient nations for centuries. But humanity moved on and dismissed those as nonsense old folk-tales. However, it is impossible for Muslim societies to make such a forward move, because Allah’s words in the Quran have sanctified them as truth. So, as per Islam, there is nothing wrong with those myths; they are as real as their own existence. After all, Muslims believe there is nothing in the Quran that can be disputed or doubted, it is absolute truth.

This article focuses on the interpretation of dreams, based on my own experience in the Middle East. I suspect that other Muslim societies are no different as far as belief in such myths and nonsense is concerned.


New Book: 'The Allah Delusion'

E-mail Print PDF

Follow the evidence, wherever it leads.”  --  Socrates

My second book, The Allah Delusion, is available for order via online stores. In my first book, Islam Dismantled: The Mental Illness of Prophet Muhammad, I had critically examined the claims of Muhammad’s prophethood and found them inadequate. In the present book, I have argued that today science has advanced sufficiently to be able to make a definitive judgement on the existence or nonexistence of Allah. In this book, I disapprove not just the idea of Allah as a God but also the respect for the belief in Allah.

While keeping fast, kissing, sucking tongues, having sex -- all was OK for the Prophet and the Sahaaba. But will we modern Muslims dare do likewise?


Islam: The Problem at the Heart of Egypt’s Revolutions

E-mail Print PDF

This latest revolution in Egypt, the second in the last two years, is a symptom of a deep-rooted problem at the heart of Islam itself: Egypt is on the verge of a civil war to bring a resolution to the never-ending tension between what Islam demands versus what the people really want.

This is the central problem in most Muslim countries: the difficult choice between a civilian, military "infidel" government, and a totalitarian Islamic theocracy. The problem is compounded when most Egyptians consider themselves both Muslim and lovers of democracy, but refuse to see that Islam and freedom cannot co-exist. How can Islam anywhere produce a democracy when freedom of speech and religion are outlawed, where there is no free and independent judiciary, and equal rights for women, minorities and non-Muslims are legally suppressed?


The Horrible Status of Women in Islam, Part 2

E-mail Print PDF

Dear Muslim sisters! In Part 1 of this article, we have come across many ‘golden sayings’ of our noble prophet about Muslim women. Those sayings make it crystal clear that your status in Islam is not only lower than men, but also as low as or even lower than domestic animals. The troublesome issue of women in Islam is endless. We can’t cover it all in a few short articles. So, I will keep this discussion brief touching only a few points and complete it in three parts, leaving an earnest request to my Muslim sisters to spend some of your time to study Islamic scriptures on your own in order to know your real status in Islam.


Muhammad’s imaginary brainchild Allah the most Gracious has allowed Muslim men to marry up to four wives. If they desire for the pleasure of new flesh even after having four wives, they can just dismiss one by uttering ‘talaq’ three times and bring in a new one. In addition, Muslim men can have slave-girls as many as they want to spice up their sex life.


Muslim Women Cannot Fast on Their Own – Why? Part 1

E-mail Print PDF


This title would have shocked both the Muslims and ‘infidels’. But it is true as per recorded Islamic sources. I dedicate this multi-part article to the liberation of all women, of my Muslim sisters in particular.

Dear Muslim Sisters! Allah specifically says that the observance of fasting by Muslims is entirely for Him and He will give rewards directly without the interventions of any one (!) (Sahih Al-Bukhari 3:128).


To My Fellow Muslims with Love: Revealing Real Muhammad and Islam 5G - Fasting the Third Pillar of Islam: Fasting Sprit—Jesus vs. Muhammad

E-mail Print PDF

In this article, I will discuss how vigorously Muhammad tried to project himself as someone similar to Jesus by pretending to fast continuously like did Jesus, and how ‘Allah’ fed him during his continuous fasting. Muhammad’s inability to fast while traveling for Jihad expeditions and the reason for his abolishing fasting while traveling in two steps will also be discussed.


How Muslims defend Islam: Slandering Other Religions For Advancing Islam

E-mail Print PDF

Islam is a cult which stands and prospers only by slandering other faiths. Since tender age, Muslims inculcate in their children the ideas that Christians are infidels and have corrupted the Bible; Jews are pigs and apes and have corrupted their holy book even more; Hindus are idol worshippers, a totally false religion, thus they are Kafirs and Mushriks; Buddhists are also idol worshippers, and so on. They keep on finding faults with each and every other religious faith. They label them with various terms and expressions to belittle those religions. At the same time, they exaggerate, embellish and embroider their own cult deceitfully. While most of them do it unwittingly, some do so intentionally in the hope of winning the heart and favors of Allah. They fail to understand such a simple thing that an Omnipotent God would never need any kind of lies or superficial beautification to promote and glorify His religion. Muslims hold an attitude concerning other religions, which is best summed by the famous proverb: "Give a dog a bad name and hang him".


Islamic Economics: Plundering with a Prophetic and Divine Seal

E-mail Print PDF


In an earlier article, I outlined my views about the origination of Islam as a tribal system. It was an open system in the sense that it was very easy for outside individuals and tribes to join in. However, it was also a closed system to leave. If an individual or a group of individual attempted to leave Islam, they were put to the sword.


To My Fellow Muslims with Love: Revealing Real Muhammad and Islam 5F – Fasting the Third Pillar of Islam, All-Important to Allah, Not to Muhammad

E-mail Print PDF


As human beings, we imagine the ‘Supreme Force’, if exists, as kind and invisible, and the heaven as unimaginably full of peace and spiritual joy. But Muhammad made our Islamic Heaven very much earthly, having walls, gates and gate-keepers. It is also very materialistic in earthly sense with the promise of unbounded supply of fruits, milk, honey, and sealed wine with Allah’s tag on it, golden cots decorated with pearls and specially created sex machines, the houris or eternal virgins etc. It is nothing but stupendous teaching suitable for the stupid. Not even uncivilized tribes will accept such childish ideas of the Divine Abode today. The following hadiths speak about such stupendous teachings of the gates of heaven.


Has India Banned 'The Innocence of Islamic Jihad'?

E-mail Print PDF

It appears that the government of India is trying to block access to the movie, 'The Innocence of Islamic Jihad', produced by Imran Firasat in collaboration with islam-watch.org. Attached a screen-shot of a failed attempt to access the movie on youtube by an Indian viewer.


If the Indian government is truly blocking access to this movie, which has absolutely nothing offensive, it will amount to pinnacle of dhimmitude on the part of the government of India.

Living in the Dark Ages

I can not be the only one who feels that we live in a very special time of human history. Our generation came to existence as the human civilization reached unprecedented levels of sophistication on all fronts of human achievements. In our time, people enjoy healthier and longer lives thanks to advanced medicine, which eradicated many killer diseases that took the lives of millions in the past. In our time, we refined our moral values. Slavery, which was a perfectly acceptable practice in the past, is now outlawed by all nations, who came together and introduced the human rights declaration.

How Muslims defend Islam: Conversation with an Educated, Moderate Muslim

E-mail Print PDF

"Why should we change our religion, it is full of blessing for us. Muhammad and his followers are merciful among themselves and severe against the disbelievers (Surah Fatah); the Quran is here to strike at the root of evil (Surah Tarikh). The disbelievers are filthy (Surah Taubah). Respect is only for Allah, the prophet and the believers (Surah Saaf). The believers have Allah as their protectors. We are in state of truce where we respect the life and property of the Kafirs, but during war if we are killed we go to Jannah, but if we are successful their property and wealth is ours, their women are our concubines, their children are our slaves. That is what you call the atrocities of Muhammad (PBUH). He is fully justified of what he did. The polytheist and the atheist live on the earth, breadth the airs, drink the water and consume the food—all of which belongs to Allah—should be punished. Muhammad (PBUH) is here to establish religion of Allah not to compromise. He may be oppressor for others. So what... So What???"


Worthy Quotes on Islam, II

Introduction: This is a repeat of quotes recently published in IslamWatch with the addition of new quotes. I have added many worthy quotes, which valued readers of IslamWatch have added in comments and credit goes to them.

But first, I would like to ask the reader to join me in a good laugh. Please have a look at the picture below. It was taken in a specific conference held in Saudi Arabia last year. There is not a single woman in sight. And notice the title of the conference. This is Islam – one laughable religion.


To My Fellow Muslims with Love: Revealing Real Muhammad and Islam 5E - Fasting the Third Pillar of Islam: Allah’s Geographical Ignorance

E-mail Print PDF

In the preceding four articles on fasting in Islam, we have discussed about the four borrowed-from-Pagans fake sacred months of Islam and how Muhammad made Ramadan as the fasting month, also borrowing from the Sabians. In this article, let us analyze the Arab supremacy on sighting the crescent moon, geographical knowledge of Allah concerning the timing of fast, and Muhammad’s dilemma between fasting and looting etc.


How Muslims defend Islam: Understanding the Muslim Mind!

“The purpose of Education is to give culture to the individual and to develop his capacities to the utmost.” -- Bertrand Russell (Education and the Social Order)

“Education consists in the cultivation of reason and judgment not in maneuvering them.” -- Bertrand Russell (On Education)

The biggest fear Muslims have is the fear of losing their faith (‘Imaan’). This is because of the fear, inculcated in them since childhood, that any information that has no parallel in Islamic theories and laws is false and detrimental to their faith.

This is in fact nurturing their religious superstition, which they cherish and glorify. Truth has no fear. Yet, when they are so afraid of losing their faith, what can be made of that faith? Something that has no strong foundation? No better than stupid superstition?
