Women within Islam

The myth of social equity under Islam

The Quran says that men and women will be judged by Allah. This does not mean that they have equal rights and roles, or that they are judged by the same standards. There is no ambiguity in the Quran, the life of Muhammad, or Islamic law as to the inferiority of women to men, despite the effort of modern-day apologists to salvage Western-style feminism from scraps and fragments of verses that have historically yielded no such progressive interpretation.

After military conquests, Muhammad would dole out captured women as war booties or prizes to his men. In at least one case, he advocated that they be raped in front of their husbands. Captured women

Lord Shiva in Arabia

A time before Islam

This is about the history of the southern Arabian kingdom of Shiva and what Supreme Lord Shiva means. Subhan Allah wa bihamdihi = Om Namah Shivay.

Shaivism was the most important influence in ancient Arabia before Islam along with pre islamic Babylonian Deities. Arabs when they converted to Islam took the Namaz ritual from Persians [Arabs called it Salat] and also Sajda [will elaborate on that shorlty ] & Prayer of evening, Isha is always invoking Lord Shiva also known as Isha.

Those who destroy or vandalize any Shiva temple or relic in any form, have known to be

Polygamy under Islam

A base herd instinct

A religion’s purpose is to connect with God but Islam does anything but that. Instead it teaches men to abuse children, women and encourages slavery and above all treat them in the most inhuman way possible. Obviously social pictures of a few rich and famous show bejewelled women who look very lavish but the reality is very very different inside the veil.

Majority of Muslim women, as much as 89% suffer more than any other women born under any other social system or so called religious faith. On surface and text books, news media and public statements talk of great love and peace and nobility towards women. However the reality is that women are considered

It’s All About Muhammad

A Biography of the World’s Most Notorious Prophet

By F. W. Burleigh

Why all the car bombs, beheadings, and mass murders in the Middle East? Why the relentless killing of non-Muslims throughout the world by the followers of Muhammad’s religion? Why Boston, Paris, San Bernardino, Brussels, Orlando, and, Nice, and now . . . ?

Author F. W. Burleigh draws on an academic, investigative, and literary background to bring forth this penetrating look at what is behind it all. Burleigh’s interest in Islam was sparked by the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11. The question guiding his studies was, “Why is there so much violence connected with this religion?” After a line-by-line scrutiny of 20,000

Sufi’s are Not Necessarily Peaceful

Debunking the myth; Sufi’s can be terrorists

Jalaluddin Rumi said; “I looked for God. I went to a temple, and I didn’t find him there. Then I went to a church, and I didn’t find him there. And then I went to a mosque, and I didn’t find him there. And then finally I looked in my heart, and there he was.”

He again said; “A true Lover doesn’t follow any one religion, be sure of that. Since in the religion of Love, there is no irreverence or faith. When in Love, body, mind, heart and soul don’t even exist. Become this, fall in Love, and you will not be separated again.”

So we see Jalaluddin Rumi had his own

Links Between India and the Americas

A history many are reluctant to consider

As much as many modern archaeologists and researchers deny the possibility of ancient connections between India and the Americas, there is a massive amount of evidence indicating that it was so. It’s tragic that so much was lost under Islamic and European colonialism and that so much of Indian history has been reduced to legend.

There have been recent publications concerning DNA evidence supporting Hindu migration into Australia five thousand years ago and yet many modern historians downplay and sometimes continue to deny the fact that in this civilisation encompassed all of Asia from the Mediterranean to the Pacific Islands. We know from Angkor Wat in Cambodia that a Hindu civilisation flourished but

Who are the Rohingya?

And what’s their problem?

Most media sources and wiki describe the Rohingya as the world’s most persecuted people, a population of about 1.1 million people who live predominately in Rakhine state within Myanmar. The Rohingya people say they are descendants of Muslims, perhaps Persian and Arab traders, who came to Myanmar generations ago. Unlike the Buddhist community, they speak a language similar to the Bengali dialect of Chittagong in Bangladesh.

Looking back over 1000 years of history we cannot be precise. It is well documented that Southeast Asia was more influenced by Hinduism over the first few centuries of the B.C. era and this was followed by Buddhism which became the predominant philosophy. Under Hinduism and Buddhism, the region

Ramadan

Its Origins and History

Muslims are told that the month of Ramadan is commemorative of Muhammad becoming “a prophet” and celebrated during the 9th month of the Islamic calendar. This practise was established as a Holy Month for Muslims after the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad in 610 CE on the occasion known as Laylat al-Qadr, frequently translated as “the Night of Power.

This is a month of fasting, prayer, and reflection for Muslims, but it’s also used an excuse to induce jehadi sentiments amongst the poorly educated to provoke and deepen their commitment to blind beliefs and the need for violence. In theory The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities,
