Hala Sarhan’s Shame about Muhammad


I wrote a previous essay about Hala Sarhan and discussed her shocking response upon learning that Muhammad, the so called prophet of Islam, urged women to breast-feed strangers so that they do not have sex with them. I described how this woman was devastated when the Muslim cleric, whom she invited to her show, told her that she should breast-feed her cook, her driver and her hair stylist so that she would not have sex with them. Hala Sarhan supposedly attained a high educational status and naturally, the talk about breast feeding was very alien to her. She then decided to open a new subject in her latest show: Sex and marriage in Islam. She invited another Muslim cleric who clearly explained that Islam turns women into a sex object. He said that men can marry many women but women cannot do the same. He told her that polygamy is a good idea because it allows women to be protected by men. Hala listened silently as this man kept infantilizing women. She had no problem with the fact that women are treated like a helpless child who needs the protection of a powerful figure. Hala’s education did not help her and her blind faith in a perverted prophet prevented her from questioning the fairness and justice of such a patriarchic religion. There was a glimpse of hope when one of her guests asked why Muhammad did not allow Ali, his son in law to marry another wife in addition to his daughter. However, they thought that Muhammad was a good man because he did not allow that. Alas, they forgot that he did it himself and kept 10 women at the same women. These women were clinging to any indication that Muhammad was humane and understanding, but they could not recognize that he was a sex manic who humped every woman he liked, including a 9-years-old and his daughter in law.

The question is: Why these women are so blind and why they can not see Muhammad for who is? Why do they cling to a religion who treats them like a sex object and to a prophet who only saw them as vaginas? Why do educated Muslim women continue to believe in a religion that clearly infantilize and marginalize them? The answer is clear. When society tells you that you are inferior and weak all the time, you believe it and you conduct your life from that perspective. Muslim women are so afraid of screaming for their rights because they do believe that they are inferior and weak. When Muslim women break these societal and Islamic shackles we may have hope.

Maged:

Ya know your post merely confirms what I suspected: Islam has ironocally preserved the social mores of the Ancient world. One that despised women and killed them, married them off at early ages and bsically couldn't care less about them.
To be forthright, the only way for Moslem women to break their psychological bondage is to hear the gospel.

Did You read this:
"Alaa Ali, a young freelance translator from Cairo, consulted a religious scholar to find out what would helpher gain more credit with God - praying at the mosque on the holiest night of Ramadan or going to see a sick relative."

"Many Egyptians have turned to Islam because they believe that western-inspired ideologies did not work well," said Mr El Sayed. "The liberal period before the 1952 revolution did not succeed and socialism during the period of Nasser ended in the Israeli occupation of Sinai and in an economic crisis."

Nasser was a member of islamic brotherhood, Egypt's most militant and danegrous islamic group. The liberal period before the so called revolution was the only era where Egypt experienced true democracy.

Maged,

If you were fair-minded and rational as you claim, why don't start reading serious books about the dark history of Christianity in the Middle Ages in Europe, read about the popes and the atrocities they had committed, read about the Inquistion. I advise to spend half the time you seem to spend on the Internet digging up dirt about Mohammed to read serious history books not online crap, which is a waste of time.
As for the poor Muslim women degraded by Islam, I would like you to worry more about Coptic women who are not exaclty the epitomisation of emancipation. Tell us something--if you have the courage and the knowledge--about the patriarchal Coptic church and women's rights under its oppressive rule.

To copts hating Mohammed (saw) and Islam..enjoy your life with hatred for Islam eating your hearts..coz Islam is staying whether you like it or not..God's word say so, and it is UNDENIABLE..instead of repeating nonsense, try to get the real faith of Islam..it is not that bad..biggest proof is your existence, that your ancestors survived all this time within an Islamic state..unlike your mates the christian europeans who committed genocides wherever they went..WAKE UP

To those of you who are talking so badly about Islam, I pitty you and your ignorance. May God guide you cause you cant see the light.
I beleive in freedom of thought and choice but only when it comes out of real research and knowledge, so before you make up your minds about something as big as a religion and a prophet I strongly urge you to read the Quoran and then say whatever you want cause i guarantee you then you will discover that you know very little and you are mislead by ignorance exactly like that idiot of a sheikh whom I bet never read God's book of wisdom "the Quoran"
May God guide you by the light and glory of Jesus.

Huh?! You clearly don't know what you are talking about, and don't think that using some big-sophisticated words will make you sound like your intellegent.. YOU ARE NOT. There is a difference between democracy and being offensive, LOSER!
And besides, did you ever think of the wives the Prophet (PBUH) married? Most of them were old women, poor or widowed. He did it because he is HUMAN (you're probably new to this term!).
People like you will always be a minority and behind the margin, because you are NOTHING. I hope you will be guided to the right path before it's too late and you'll burn in HELL.

To all of you who wrote those comments about Islam and those 'poor women' of Islam and Prophet Mohamed(PBUH), please read more or at least make an effort to be knowledgeable about somehting before you sprout nonsence.

To the person who said that Prophet Mohamed was a pervert. Did you know that the prophet first married at the age of 25 to a women who was 15 his senior and had already had some children from a previous marriage?? He remained married to her and only her for 25 years (and he did not have extra marital activities)? After he passed away, for two years, he didn't remarry and when he married, he married a very old women to provide for her. Every other marriage that followed was for political reasons to secure the procession of Islam afterward.
yes, it's true that he married 14 women to be exact. But if you look at the other prophets (aside from Christ) the occurence of multiple wives was normal for prophets.

As for muslim women, please don't feel sorry for us. We don't want your pity nor do we deserve it. I find myself respected and have all the freedom and protection needed.

I soppose you equilize freedom with the amount of clothes a woman wears. the less she wear the more free she is. I am guessing you're with the exhibitionism streak that the rage now in Europe and US.

You don't know what you're missing in Islam. Really you don't. Now I feel sorry for you.
Have a good day:)

Maged,
u seem to be knowing nothing about islam
polygamy was there before islam and women had no rights to inherit and posess anything. They were treated like nothing and what islam did is that it came and preserved their rights. Islam gave women access to possess lans and inherit and many other things. Islam also ordered its followers from men to not get married unless there is a good reason and hen its there, islam also ordered those who are married to more than one to treat them equally.
muslim women actually dont need your opinion and advise
ud better not talk about islam and prophet muhammad PBUH
remember that in islam there is no "ikrah fel deen" and the prophet said "lakom denokom wa leya deen"
so khalik f nafsak
and for that human who said muslims know nothing but the word kill, actually we are not like that. in any group, there are good people and there are bad as well. try to know whats really going on before u open ur mouth and speak shit.
the simplest thing you can so is to search befopre u say that google aw see videos at youtube
and god has a reason for everything he ordered us to do
like seyam, its good fr health. salat. Islam ordered us to treat others woith respect. Remember that this prophert ure talking about had a jewish neighbour who woke up early everyday to put garbage infront of the prophets house and when he didnt do that one day, the prophet went to ask about him and make sure he is ok. Islam wants peace, ud better see whats going on in the rest of the world. we are not the one who kill children infront of their parents, we are not the one who rape women infront of their husbands we are not the one who put our shoe and stand on the face of other people. u only see what u want to cause u dont want to see the otehr side. giove me a good reason for invading iraq or palestine and killinhg people and destroying their houses
show respect, read, use your mind and be logic. Not all Muslims are good and not all others are bad but not all people follow islam as God asked them too and neither do christians and jewish.
but uve to know that in every group of people there is the good and the bad. u too have good and bad ones,
we dont know only but the word"kill" as u assume and remember that islam's followers say hi to each other in "peace be upon you" we do respect peace and we want it so dont say anything you dont know.
