Women’s Paradise In Islam
– By Abul Kasem

In recent times many Islamists in NFB extolling how
good Islam is for women have written plenty of
essays. They will spare no pain to tell women how
kind, just, progressive, non-discriminatory and fair
Islam is towards women. They have invented these
essays after they were shamed by a few essays on the
pathetic treatment of women in the Quran and the
Hadith. After reading these essays of the Islamists,
any woman will wonder where can they find such
paradises for themselves. The Islamists will never
tell them where these paradises are or if any such
paradise exists at all or not. To give credibility to
the messages written by these Islamists towards our
mothers, sisters, and wives, we need an absolute proof
of where can we find such Islamic treatment for our
women. So let us have a look at the conditions of
women in one of the Islamic paradises, Iran.

In this paradise (Jannat) the women have been awarded
with the following ‘nek’ from Allah: (please refer
www.homa.org/wings/irisituation.html for more
details)

1. Hijab has been forced on every woman whether
she likes it or not. Wearing no hijab may invite
severe punishment. And what that punishment can be?
Let us hear from the mouth of Prosecutor-General,
Abolfazl Musavi-Tabrizi. “Any one who rejects the
principle of hijab in Iran is an apostate and the
punishment for an apostate under Islamic law is death”
(August, 15, 1991)

2. Women are baby-growing fields. Unbelievable
isn’t it. Let us hear from Ayatollah Mutahari. He
said, “The specific task of women in this society is
to marry and bear children”.

3. Women are banned from studies such as
Engineering, Agriculture, Archaeology, Restoration of
historic monuments, handicrafts and many other fields.

4. Provisional marriage is lawful. A man may have
four “permanent wives” and as many “provisional wives”
as he likes.

5. The marriage age for the girls was reduced to
13 and then further reduced to 9 years. This is in
keeping with the tradition of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
who at the age of 51 married a 6 years old child
(Ayesha) and had sex with her when she became 9.

6. Iranian women cannot marry foreigners without
the written permission from the Ministry of Interior.

7. Divorce is an indisputable right of men and a
woman can be divorced without any prior consultation.

8. A married woman cannot travel, work, join
organization, go to college or visit her friends and
relatives without husband’s permission.

9. Married women cannot travel overseas without a
written permission from their husbands. This written
permission must be presented to the authorities. The
authorities are also considering banning all women
from traveling overseas for higher study.

10. A husband can inflict any physical violence or
any other form of torture on a woman. You say ‘this is
absolutely cruel and unacceptable in Islam’. Let us
hear from an Islamic scholar on this matter.
Hojatoleslam Imani, a top religious leader says, “A
married woman should endure any violence or torture
imposed on her by her husband for she is fully at his
disposal. Without his permission she may not leave her
house even for a good action (such as charitable
work). Otherwise her prayers and devotions will not be
accepted by God and curses of heaven and earth will
fall upon her.”

11. Women are stoned to death if their husbands
charge them for adultery. A woman was stoned to death
even when no man was found to have committed adultery
with her. A Mullah took only sixty seconds to arrive
at the decision and she was stoned the next day.
Before stoning her to death the mullahs shaved her
head and she was buried in mud up to her shoulder. Her
husband and her two small children witnessed this
‘rahmat’ of Allah.

12. Women political prisoners are treated as war
criminals. So, they are captives (right hand’s
possession). Therefore, their guards can do whatever
they like. Their captors regularly and systematically
rape them (the women prisoners).

13. Virgin girls who are sentenced to death are not
executed till their captors had sex with them and
rendered them un-virgin. Since virgin girls go to
heaven when they die, the Mullahs want to make sure
that these girls can never enter paradise after they
are executed. It is alleged that this type of sexual
intercourse with virgin girl prisoners takes place on
a daily basis.

14. A report by the Organization of Women against
execution in Iran gives the following data for the
period from 1981 to 1990.

1428 women executed

187 were under the age 18

9 girls under the age 13

The youngest girl executed was 10 years

The oldest woman executed was 70 years.

You say that these are not ‘real Islam’ and the
Islamic writers at NFB are dying to assert that those
actions by the Mullahs of Iran are distorted images of
Islam. To find the truth we just need to look at the
Holy Scriptures to see if these Mullahs in Iran are
right or wrong in the interpretation of the Allah’s
laws.

Sura al-Baqarah 2:223 Your women are a tilth for you
(to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will, and
send (good deeds) before you for your souls, and fear
Allah, and know that ye will (one day) meet Him. Give
glad tidings to believers, (O Muhammad)

The translation is by Pickthall. This sura clearly
says what a woman is all about. Yes, she is nothing
but a paddy field to grow paddy. In case you may think
that this translation is not reliable, let us look at
the translation by Yusufali:

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 God. And know that ye
are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give (these)
good tidings to those who believe.

Are the Iranian Mullahs wrong in treating women as
paddy fields? I invite any Islamic writers in NFB to
prove that what these people (the Iranian Mullahs) do
to the women is against the Quran.

What goes on a child’s mind when he/she watches
his/her beloved mother is beaten mercilessly by the
child’s own father? The experience is extremely
disturbing. But what is more disturbing is that when
he grows up and finds that what his/her father did to
his/her dearest mum was really inspired by the Quran.

Sura an-Nisa’ 4:34 …As to those women On whose part
ye fear Disloyalty and ill-conduct Admonish them
(first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And
last) beat them (lightly); But if they return to
obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance):
For God is Most High, Great (above you all).

In the translation of the above verse the word
‘lightly’ was added by the translator Yusufali. The
original verse does not contain any such (lightly)
word. Yusufali was so embarrassed that he added
‘lightly’ to make the verse more civilized.

In the above verse Islam has sealed the fate of women.
They are an object to be used as desired and if
necessary should be subjected to corporal punishment
if she refuses any whim and fancy of her owner. She
has very little chance to escape from the tyranny of a
religious bigot and a cruel person. And what happens
to the tyrant and the perpetrator who inflicts
physical punishment to her? The Quran is absolutely
silent on this matter. I ask any Islamic writer to
prove that what the Iranian Mullah said about the
physical torture of women by men (in item 10) above is
against Islamic rule.

In a civilized society any physical/mental abuse of a
spouse or a child is a criminal offense. The culprit
is arrested by police and tried in a court of law and
punished accordingly. In Australia, where I live, wife
beating (rather spouse beating) and child abuses are
serious criminal offenses and the Govt. Authorities
waste no time in removing to a safe place the victims
from the abusive spouse. The whereabouts of the
victims remain a top secret till the matter is settled
by the court. This is the secular law. The Quran or
any other religious scripture does not inspire this
law. If we go by the Quran, this law to protect women
and children from abusive spouse is surely not
Islamic.

Having sexual intercourse with captives is halal. You
say this is absolutely un-Islamic. Let us search the
Quran.

Sura an-Nisa 4:24 And all married women (are forbidden
unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hand
possess. …(Translation by Pickthall)

Also (prohibited are) women already married, except
those whom your right hands possess: ….(Translation
by Yusuf Ali)

You say in modern world there are no such things as
the possession of the right hands. Think again. Quran
is eternal. The world may change but Quran cannot
change. The Iranian Mullahs understand Quran much,
much better than you and me. Is not any woman that
opposes any Islamic ruling (read Allah’s law) is
waging a war against Allah? Are not the Mullahs
fighting the enemies of Allah? So, when they defeat
the enemy (captured rebel woman) she becomes the
possession of the right hands (captives) of them. And
Allah has permitted them to have sexual intercourse
with these captive women.

Menstruation is an illness (disease)

Sura al-Baqarah 2:222 They question thee (O Muhammad)
concerning menstruation. Say it is an illness, so let
women alone at such times and go not in unto them till
they are cleansed. (Translation by Pickthall)

They ask thee concerning women’s courses. Say: They
are a hurt and a pollution: So keep away from women in
their courses and do not approach them until they are
clean. (Translation by Yusufali)

This verse is not only completely unscientific; but
also a gross insult to all women of the world. How do
the millions of working women feel when they see this
divine message! There can be no message more misogyny
than this verse from the Quran. This verse literally
means that all our mothers, sisters and wives suffer
from permanent disease. A corollary of this verse will
be that when a woman reaches menopause (that is her
menstruation ceases) she becomes disease free! Since a
woman reaches her menopause between 55 to 60 years of
age, doesn’t this mean that when a woman reaches her
old age she is cured of her permanent illness that
afflicted her when she reached her puberty. What a
great logic!!

We can go on citing verses after verses from the Holy
Scriptures to illustrate how anti- feminine and how
hostile Islam is towards all women. What we observe
being done to the women of Iran and Afghanistan shocks
every civilized person Muslim, non-Muslim alike.
Islmists not living in these countries have very
little idea of what ‘real Islam’ is doing to every
sister, mother and wife of the men in these
paradises. Most of the Islamists living in the West
have a very utopian idea of the treatment of women
according to the Islamic rules. What we are witnessing
in these Islamic paradises is the practical
application of the Quran and Hadith. Can any western
Islamist (new Mullah) prove that what their
compatriots at these Islamic heavens doing are
anti-Quran and anti-Hadith?

The ominous message sent by the Mullahs of this
Islamic Jannat is very plain and straight. Any woman
who still thinks that Islam affords her the freedom,
liberty, equality, justice, her mental and physical
well being is simply fooling herself. She is simply
surrendering herself to a pack of wolves and the only
destination these wolves will send her is to hell.
That is for sure. The sad thing is that the hell that
these Mullahs will send her will be in this world. She
does not have to die to go there. She has to endure
the suffering of hell-fire after the Mullahs have
stripped her of her human dignity and reduced her to
nothing but a piece of meat then to a piece of fertile
crop field and eventually to a hapless destitute.

Even the prophet said that majority of women will be
in hell.

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: The Prophet said ” I was shown
the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers
were women who were ungrateful” (Sahih Bukhari 1:28)

This is what is reserved for Muslim women by Allah!
