    Many Islamic scholars vehemently deny the existence of any inequality between men and women, but others are more forthright in regard to equality matters….Even so, they justify the inequality in saying something such as, “Allah has designed them this way and since Allah does not care whether you are male or female, rich or poor, black or white, there is no difference between an Arab or a Persian except by obedience!” This spin, they hope, is acceptable to the Western mind set.
    However, the problem is if Allah has no favoritism, and there is no difference to him between male and female, how can we reconcile that with all of the inequality forced upon Muslim women on the earth, as well as for all eternity, since the Koran gives eternal laws and decrees? Muslims claim that the origin of the Koran is written in golden tablets in Heaven and that it is a perfect revelation, given to the perfect seal of all prophets. How can the inequality (i.e., different treatment of women than men) in the decrees and laws in the Koran be justified when the Koran also claims that Allah makes no difference between men and women?

    The respective duties of a Muslim husband and his wife are not necessarily based on their genders. We find gender influential, but not a decisive factor in determining their marital duties. What makes their duties different are the commands contained in the
    Koran. Though both are said to be created from one soul (i.e., Adam,) Allah says, “O mankind! Be careful of your duty toward your Lord who created you from a single soul and from it its mate, and from them both have spread abroad a multitude of men and women. Be careful of your duty toward Allah in whom you claim (your rights) of one another, and towards the wombs (that bore you). Lo! Allah has been a Watcher over you.” (4:1)
    The rights of men and their duties as husbands are interrelated and both should be seen in the light of what Allah has pre-ordained. The pre-eminence of men in Islam is based on this, “Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to be superior to others [women] and because they spend of their wealth (for the support of women).” (4:34) Men’s superiority is based on their role as providers in an economic sense, as the above text indicates.
    Not only is the superiority of the men’s role based on his economic duties, as he provides for his wife, sisters, and mother, etc., but men are superior because Allah has bestowed his favor on them, hence disfavoring the other party (women.) Men are admonished not to forget, “And in no wise covet those things in which Allah hath bestowed His gifts more freely on some of you than on others; to men is allotted what they earn, and to women, what they earn; but ask Allah of His bounty for Allah hath full knowledge of all things.”(4:32)
    The text here, “What women earn” could be taken, and indeed has been taken by Muslim apologists to mean the Koran gives permission to women to work. If this is so, that Allah has given women permission to work and earn a wage, this so-called right is not included in the doctrine of inheritance, as we shall see later on.)
    Numerous Muslim commentators on the Koran see women in terms of their duties only within the confinements of the house, since the primary reason Allah created them was to pro-create and be a godly mother!
    Allah’s wisdom is connoted by signs (ayat); among these signs are that he created females to be mates for males. “And among His signs is that He created for you mates from among yourselves that you may live in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between you; verily, in that, are signs for people who reflect.” (30:21) The basis for equality between men and women in Islam purports to be a spiritual one, but in theory and practicality, we see it is one based on economic roles. Women have little opportunity to advance themselves, to work, to alter their lives in any way without the men around them permitting it. The reality is most women in Islam are economically enslaved to their husbands, unable to fulfill the clear accommodation given to them to earn a wage in Koran 4:32!
    Men are in effect, lords over women, because Allah made them to be superior to women, and because they are the breadwinners. We, in the West, would never call the rich superior to the poor, because we do not tie a person’s value to his money. However, in Islam, a man’s value, and indeed his superiority to women is exactly thus…that he has money and she does not, that he earns and she does not. However, even in the rare cases where a woman works, she is still considered inferior, and her value is seen as less than that of her husband, since she is a woman.
    The belief that this inequality is divinely sanctioned, even in Paradise, where there is no breadwinning effort, since the Koran is eternal, women will always be inferior to men. How can Muslims claim, then, on the one hand that this same Allah has no favoritism between men and women.that they are equal? It just does not pan out on any level of argument.
    Just a couple of lines later, we read that a woman’s duty in marriage is to be “good.” “Good’ women are obedient to their husbands, “guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.” (Koran 4:34) This gives men the [eternally and divinely sanctioned] right to scourge their wives!
    Women are never allowed, under any circumstances, to leave uncovered any part of her body for a stranger to see. This includes her arms, legs, her head of hair..etc The stranger is defined as anyone whom she could legally marry if she were not married, as indicated in the Koran. “[Tell the believing women] not to reveal their adornments except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband’s fathers, their sons, their husband’s sons, their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sister’s sons, or their (Muslim) women or the (female) slaves, or old male servants who lack vigor, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex.” (al-Nur 31).
    Women are more sensitive to their own body than men are and, in general, are more inclined to faithfulness than men, since the sex drive is nowhere near as strong in females as in males. However, one could say that there is nearly a hysteria of culture to prevent women from committing adultery, which abjectly overlooks the males own testosterone-led tendencies. No Muslim male believes that her veil will do the trick in preventing her adultery, since they believe women are so inclined by nature to wander. Hence, the veil.
    Christian doctrine says that the eyes and the ears are the senses through which adultery is committed, even before the heart or the sexual organs have followed astray., The covering of the head will do nothing if the heart is lustful. Many, many women have wrongfully been accused of adultery, and because little proof is required other than the husband’s suspicion, women suffered. The man inflicts the penalty upon the woman, and it is indeed a harsh one, ending in her death in most cases.
    Jesus is recorded in the Gospel of Matthew as having said, “Everyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”(Matthew 5:28) Muhammad took it further in stating that, “All mankind has its share in adultery, whether they desired it or not.” The Islamic emphasis on women’s chastity is to control her every move, put her under a veil, monitor her social contacts, and permit her no freedom apart from a male relative. The emphasis in Islam is on the external, while Christianity’s emphasis is on the internal, i.e., the need for purification of one’s thoughts.
    It is widely believed that the prayers of the faithful female Muslim are not be accepted by Allah unless she is wearing a hijab (veil.) Muhammad is quoted as saying that, “Allah does not accept the prayer of a female who has reached the age of puberty except if she is wearing a head covering (khimaar).” (According to al-Albani, this hadith is sahih. Al-Albani, Sahih al-Jami, vol. 2, p. 1280.—JZ)
    The only phase of adult life where a female may be seen without her Hijab is when she is above the age of bearing a child as is indicated in the Koran. “And as for women past child-bearing who do not expect marriage, it is no sin upon them if they discard their (outer) clothing in such a way as not to show their adornment. But to refrain is better for them. And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower” (al-Nur 60).

    The veil is seen by Westerners to symbolize the lack of rights for women in Islam, but the apologists will say that it is the opposite…that women in Islam are in fact more free because they are hidden under the veil…that this protects them from the social evils so apparent in Western society.

    So I guess the 911 highjackers were spending  time in the strip clubs of South Florida because Allah demands it? The very fact that woman are forced to wear such a covering is a public declaration of the human urges their men try to deny, it is the nature of sin, the fallen human condition that we all are aware of.



    The wages of sin is death, the very death Jesus endured on the cross for the redemption and  justification of all who will receive him and confess him.
