I am 13 years old an I am from America. I used to be Christian but I would like to Convert to Islam. I have 2 muslim friends and one friend who wants to convert as well. I have also been researching Islam for about 4 months and I believe it is the truth. My muslim friend and her mother are going to help me become a muslim but I was wondering if there is any information I should know before converting. Thank you :)

if you're a female you should know that according to islamic law you are only allowed to inherit half of what males inherit. you're not allowed to travel by yourself. you can have no male friends that aren't relatives. your marraige will be arranged for you. you have to lower your gaze when seeing males. your husband has a right to a second, third and fourth wife. if you persistantly disobey your husband he can beat you. your husband has marrital rights to rape you. you can't marry a non-muslim. you are considered unclean when menstrating. you're spiritually inferior to muslim men. good luck

Allāh is the ally of those who believe. He brings them out from darknesses into the light. And those who disbelieve – their allies are Tāghūt(false god).

Suspicions that was raised by the weak-enemies of Islam about female inheritance, marriage, lifestyle, relationships and most importantly the core being of a woman in Islam betrays not only a titanic-ignorance but indeed a deliberate attempt to flop facts as they are always bring about the OPPOSITE of reality on the table.

I believe Mike is having a hard time accepting someone going to the light from the dark. Disguised under an “atheist” or a so-called religion-free man he is a “priest”, I’ve had enormous encounters with such people, they all walk and talk the same way – Instead of logically talking about their own faith, if any, they tend to always “try” and defame other religions in an attempt to show goodness, or virtue by talking about immoral things as if they are the purified group and the all-good-doers of the world.

Let’s point these out one by one and see if the “Priest” can virtually admits to the truth of Allah, not to the evil that makes him live in a continuous denial of truth and righteousness.

1 - FEMAL “Inheritance” in the bible, as derived from Chapter 27:1-11 and Deuteronomy 21 as the Bible is clear about if sons exist, then the daughters inherit nothing:

  1. On the demise of the father the estate goes to the sons;
  2. If there be no son, the daughters succeed;
  3. If there be no daughter, the brothers of the deceased inherit;
  4. If there be no brethren or paternal uncles, the estate goes to the brothers of his father;
  5. If there be no grand uncles or brothers of the father of the deceased, then the nearest akin succeeds to the inheritance.

And from Deuteronomy21: 15-17 15 If a man has two wives, and he loves one but not the other, and both bear him sons but the firstborn is the son of the wife he does not love, 16 when he wills his property to his sons, he must not give the rights of the firstborn to the son of the wife he loves in preference to his actual firstborn, the son of the wife he does not love. 17 He must acknowledge the son of his unloved wife as the firstborn by giving him a double share of all he has. That son is the first sign of his father's strength. The right of the firstborn belongs to him.

Notice how the wife (widow) inherits nothing. And notice how the daughter only inherits when no sons exist. Also, the oldest son inherits double the younger son: FEMALES ARE NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO TAKE ANY INHERITANCE IF THEY HAVE ANY BROTHERS – WHERE GOD’s JUSTICE IS?

If you are a female in Islam (ACCORDING TO THE ISLAMIC LAW);

In Islam, the male inherits double the female, because the man is legally responsible for his parents, wife, children, divorcee (for a period of time), sisters (single or widowed), and his aunts. He can be sued in court by any of these people if he neglects them, and the court would enforce payments upon him to them. The following Noble Verses provide the evidence for this:

[004:034] Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because God has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what God would have them guard. 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).

alright, that's a whole lot to take in. let's take it one by one. first there are no "Suspicions" being raised "about female inheritance". i correctly stated what is the law in islam. see 4:11. my ignorance is certainly titantic in nature. who claims to know all things? but given all these answers, were have i "flop facts"? his own answers confirm exactly what i said, with some things left out. as to my faith, or rather lack there of, i'm no "priest" and i don't lie. i am in fact an atheist. absolutely hilarious that muslim don't accept that there are atheist in this world. anyway, muslim

altaher, it always cracks me up when muslims bring up the old testement. don't you believe it to be divine revelation from allah? it's your stupid god's laws, not mine. in america inheritance doesn't take gender into account. here we don't follow any stupid ancient laws because we have seperation of religion and governance. why not bring up some levitcus and numbers to show the brutality of your god. "priest", you crack me up dude. there you go 4:34 and beat them. the word (lightly) doesn't actually appear in the koran, but given western norms some muslims have started to throw it in. good.

(Oct 05 '13 at 05:37) abul rauf abul%20rauf's gravatar image

baby steps to civility. in fact there is now a translation of the koran, the "sublime koran" where the phrase to beat has been removed and replaced with divorce. now a convert woman has written that so it may not get much traction amoung people like muslim altaher? she claims the arabic word there has 27 meanings, one of which is to go away from, as in divorce? so maybe if you convert you may bring some light to the darkness that is sharia. but like i said, good luck.

so can the woman/wife (lightly) beat her husband if he is disobedient??

Yes, woman are not allowed to travel by themselves because they ARE "WOMEN" and they need a man to protect them from any harm, WE DO CARE ABOUT OUR WOMEN and we do not just say this, we do it, and we are not just doing it like that - we worship Allah protecting our woman from any harm, even here by protecting their faith from your poisonous ignorant feed.

Of course our woman cannot have male friends and our men cannot have female fiends, because men and women are created by God to love and like each other.

This is our nature as human being – Allah want to protect us from doing the sin not just by telling us NOT TO DO IT, but even by instructing us to not to APPROACH the sin by being alone with a lady or paving the way for such sin by having a cordial relationship with a female that is not our MAHRAM OR WE HAVE NOT RIGHTS TO BE WITH.

Talking to the lady is Taboo, but once you are “married” this taboo becomes a worship to be with her and even smiling at her face is a good deed. Sexual intercourse with your wife is a an act of worship, while Sexual intercourse with your lady-friend is a SIN and a big O’ one too.

Islam teaches its followers to be humble, nice and SHY.

The most beautiful aspect of a woman is her politeness and shyness, what resembles a great woman is her calmness and logic, so – of course, our beloved Islam instructs both males and female to lower their gaze to even protect their hearts and minds and save it to their spouses.

NOT JUST FEMALES – WE ARE BOTH TOLD TO DO SO

Marriages are arranged upon the acceptance of the lady and the man proposing, If the lady said no – BY ISLAMIC LAW - no one has the right to force her into the marriage whatsoever. And if that happened against the law the marriage is deemed invalid.

Moreover, ISLAMIC LAW allows a man to have a second, third and fourth wife (NOT GIRL FRIENDS) – this is a law by God and is ONLY VALID for those who can treat both ladies with ABSOLUTE justice.

Having more than a wife is not a sexual party nor is something to be considered as a privilege, the RIGHT to have more than a wife is a "social security".

1 ) Many of women are living as single moms, it is better for them to be a second wife than facing life alone with a child. 2) Many women has some sort of a disability, they have the right of a HUSBAND just like any other lady like my sister or your sister, these ladies is better be as a second wife than living a lone 3) We have more females and males in the society, these women deserves a life of their own

YES, Muslim Females cannot marry non-Muslims - They should be with who adheres to God laws not making tens of very ignorant arguments and worship man with God - Glory to be to you my God for what they think, do and believe.

AND “RAPE” IS ONLY ALLOWED IN SATAN"S RELIGION, sexual intercourse between a man and his wife is ONLY BY CONSENT AND NOT FORCE.

ANY person with a minute search in GOOGLE can tell, so you are shooting blanks here

                     A brief look at polygamy in the Old Testament:

Let us look at some of the verses from the Old Testament that allow polygamy:

In Exodus 21:10, a man can marry an infinite amount of women without any limits to how many he can marry.

In 2 Samuel 5:13; 1 Chronicles 3:1-9, 14:3, King David had six wives and numerous concubines.

In 1 Kings 11:3, King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines.

In 2 Chronicles 11:21, King Solomon's son Rehoboam had 18 wives and 60 concubines.

In Deuteronomy 21:15 "If a man has two wives, and he loves one but not the other, and both bear him sons...."

There are a lot more verses from the Old Testament that allow polygamy, but I think that the above are sufficient enough to prove my point.

"this is a law by God and is ONLY VALID for those who can treat both ladies with ABSOLUTE justice" i don't think mahas been reading this website very long. there have mutiple post by first and second wifes who aren't happy. who aren't being treated with "ABSOLUTE justice". what man do you think could actually do this. u don't think new younger wives might get more attention. or the wife that bares sons.

to take in a second and maybe third wife. good luck with that. did he just bring up king solomon. i think he is a great prophet to the muslims. read "the ants" in the koran. allah had bestowed him power over some jinn (they are beings made of smokeless fire that live in the trees and mountains). 4 months of study is hardly enough. you are young. no need to rush it. give it 4 years. plus once you become a muslim, there is no turning back. muhammad said "whoever changes his islamic religion, kill him". won't happen in america but if you immigrate to an islamic country it might.

"YES, Muslim Females cannot marry non-Muslims " that's what i said. still no flip flopping. "AND “RAPE” IS ONLY ALLOWED IN SATAN"S RELIGION" see how he puts rape in quotes. because in islam a husband has a right to have sex with his wife when ever he wants. therefore in their eyes it's not "rape". plow into your wives as you do your fields. and if they don't rape you, you will be curse till dawn by the angels if you refuse him sex. don't know if you belief in angels, and not sure what their "curse" brings. maybe muslim altaher can tell us?

About the “BEATING” aspect:

"Young people take pride in their strength, but the gray hairs of wisdom are even more beautiful. A severe beating can knock all of the evil out of you! (From the Contemporary English Version (CEV) Bible,Proverbs 20:29-30)"

"Hatred stirs up trouble; love overlooks the wrongs that others do. If you have good sense, it will show when you speak. But if you are stupid, you will be beaten with a stick. If you have good sense, you will learn all you can, but foolish talk will soon destroy you. (From the Contemporary English Version (CEV) Bible, Proverbs 10:12-14)"

"A curse you don’t deserve will take wings and fly away like a sparrow or a swallow. Horses and donkeys must be beaten and bridled— and so must fools. Don’t make a fool of yourself by answering a fool. (From the Contemporary English Version (CEV) Bible, Proverbs 26:2-4)"

Beating here is open for anyone who is deemed to have evil in them, and/or is acting stupid and is a fool. The Bible doesn't object to the concepts of beating and disciplining of any individual who is in the wrong, and who is deemed to be deserving to it.

IN ISLAM THE BEATING IS ONLY BY THE FOLLOWING:

AND THIS IS ONLY THE LAST RESORT, You should have a book under your arms and hit the stick at the lower portion of the legs ONLY, NOW TELL ME - even babies do find this painful.

This is only a painless punishment grab a book and place it under your arm and try to hit with a stick.
