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

just be careful little girl. read the koran and hadiths. study much much more. not just the "basics" delve into the details.

About the point of spiritually inferior,

You are maybe talking about (Does Islam consider Women deficient in intelligence and religion) hadith,

Woman are not allowed to pray and fat during menses, man do not have a period so women had done less than the man – THE POINT IS: is this at any point degrading to any woman, or is at any point devaluating her spirituality and believe. The answer is NO, Menstruating is a God given female thing and therefore has NO negative effects on the level of her spirituality whatsoever.

About the Intelligence, Islam has given an absolute equality between men and woman. However, a woman is always thinking and deciding by her heart not mind, a man is different – he is always thinking and deciding by his mind. And this is not a deficiency in neither as if a woman thought of pregnancy by her mind she will never approach the man and will avoid it by all means possible but because God has given her a trait of (more into the heart) she is willing to go through all the pain and exhaustion to feel a mom. So the deficiency is not as women are crazy, but they are more into feeling than calculating.

another page, this guy can ramble. i like him. "Woman are not allowed to pray and fast during menses" that's what i'm talking about. nothing about sex. if you don't pray as must or fast as much, in the eyes of muslims you are inferior. that is how god supposedly judges people. by their piety. not my rules, muslims' rules. "O mankind, We have created you from a male and a female and have made you into nations and tribes for you to know one another. Truly, the noblest of you with God is the most pious. Truly, God is All-Knowing, All-Aware. 49:13" if they won't let you pray while "unclean"

how will you equal them in piety? "NO negative effects on the level of her spirituality whatsoever" really? as for the rest, well it stands on it's own.

"A woman is always thinking & deciding by her heart not mind"....well, that has got to be the most ridiculous statement I've heard yet. Pure foolishness.
