Topic Women

"Allah has made men superior to women because men spend their wealth to support them. Therefore, virtuous women are obedient, and they are to guard their unseen parts as Allah has guarded them. As for women whom you fear will rebel, admonish them first, and then send them to a separate bed, and then beat them. But if they are obedient after that, then do nothing further; surely Allah is exalted and great!" Koran 4:34

From the Koran:

2:223 Your women are your plowed fields: go into your fields when you like, but do some good deed beforehand and fear Allah. Keep in mind that you will meet Him. Give good news to the believer.

4:3 If you fear that you will not be able to deal with orphan girls fairly, marry other women of your choice, two, or three, or four; but if you fear that you cannot treat them equally, then marry only one, or any of the slave-girls you have acquired. This will prevent you from being unjust.

From the Sira of Ishaq (Mohammed’s biography):

Ishaq 969:

Allah allows you to put them [women] in separate rooms and to beat them but not with severity. If they refrain from these things they have the right to their food and clothing with kindness. Lay injunctions on women kindly, for they are prisoners with you having no control of their persons.

From the Sahih Bukhari:

Volume 3, Book 48, Number 826:

Mohammed asked, “Is not the value of a woman’s eye-witness testimony half that of a man’s?” A woman said, ”Yes.” He said, “That is because a woman’s mind is deficient.”

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 460:

Mohammed: “If a man asks his wife for sex and she refuses, causing him to go to sleep angry, the angels will curse her the entire night.

Volume 9, Book 88, Number 219:

During the battle of Al-Jamal, Mohammed heard the news that the people of Persia had made the daughter of Khosrau their ruler. On this, he said, “A nation that makes a woman their ruler will never succeed.”

From the Sunan Abu Dawood:

Abu Dawud 11, 2142:

Mohammed said: "A man will not be aked as to why he beat his wife."
