The Veil Descends

The Veil Descends
For a decade, I've been told by those who think I'm "alarmist" that there's nothing to see here. The seven-year-old whose non-appearance at the teddy bears' picnic goes unremarked . . . the beleaguered National Health Service reeling under the costs of genetic disorders from cousin marriage but now providing free and discreet "hymen reconstruction" for Muslim daughters who got a little over-Westernized one night . . . the infidel women going veiled to avoid trouble in les banlieues . . . the rabbis wearing baseball caps on the streets of Berlin and Brussels . . .
Read it all...

Skimmed through the article.

I couldn't help but wonder about how the author of the paper was unfortunate enough not to read this hadith.

----Aisha (ra) said in Sahih Muslim, “The Prophet Muhammed ﷺ never hit a woman.” Never. He never hit a woman with his hand.

The Prophet ﷺ never hit
people. He was not known to
have hit anyone.-----

Sahih Muslim



Also, arent honor crimes a world wide phenomenon?
Then again, its no surprise only Muslims are targeted, since propaganda is being done for political purposes. (as admitted by a former CIA agent)

Obviously, the propoganda wouldnt work if the news had referenced something like this quote from Criminology experts:


-----Most scholars attrivute the
low saudi arabian crime rate
mainly to the strong influence
of Islam...particularly to the
implementation of Sharia----

Well then he was disobeying Allah (Qur'an 4:34).

But good for him, I always say the most pleasing Muslims are the ones who don't obey the Qur'an :-)

How has life been recently? What have you been up to?

Abdul:

According Aisha he did, at least once, hit her:

Check it out. I give the hadith and the precise reference (unlike you).

Come to a true and gentle prophet my friend, who taught us a path of love and closeness to our Creator.

Before I respond

I am doing fine thanks!!

Just been busy studying. I missed
our discussions though. If you ever drop by Chicago, lets chat over coffee sometime!!


Back to the topic.

This link should answer your inquiry about Aisha being 'hit'.
The reference for my hadith is there too (sorry for leaving that out).

With regards in 4:34 of the Quran

Here is quote from the renowned commentary Tafheemul Quran:

'''the Prophet (peace be on him) directed men not to hit across the face, nor to beat severely nor to use anything that might leave marks on the body. (See Ibn Majah, 'Nikah', 3 - Ed.)'''

http://www.islamicstudies.info/tafheem2.php?sura=4&verse=34&to=42



'''''The word "beating" is used in the verse, but it does not mean "physical abuse". The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) explained it "dharban ghayra mubarrih" which means "a light tap that leaves no mark". He further said that face must be avoided. Some other scholars are of the view that it is no more than a light touch by siwak, or toothbrush...[He] said, "How does anyone of you beat his wife as he beats the stallion camel and then embrace (sleep with) her?” (Al-Bukhari, English Translation, vol. 8, Hadith 68, pp. 42-43)''''

If you ever want to check up any book references I give, most of them can be seen on books.google.com

One more comment

I mostly agree that a religion from God would be peaceful.

But I would like to ask a few questions in that regard

1. Who defines what is peaceful?
People have different opinions on things like death penalty, abortion, and even spanking. If people can differ so much in just the US, how much more so about religions that span the globe? Who sets the criterion and says
''''OK this is peaceful, this is not. This is good, this is bad''''


2. How does a religion being peaceful prove it is from God?
Unless you wanted to get into a complicated philosophical discussion that God must be kind (which I dont think either of us want to do)


Let me also clarify

I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT GOD IS CRUEL OR UNMERCIFUL. I AM ONLY POSING THESES QUESTION FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF SOMEONE OPEN TO ALL RELIGIONS AND WAYS OF THINKING.
