in response to reader comment: sTs - the major difference

Submitted by sTs (United Arab Emirates), Jun 29, 2008 at 03:02

Anyone who does not treat his women (wife, daughter, sister, mother, aunt) in fairness and mercy he will be questioned by God and will be punished by God,

But God set us the rules not to treat women wrongly, we have to follow these rules.

There is always limit to freedom, in early days in 1700s or 1800s; can you see women in the west dressed naked like we see today ??? They were modest

Look how the Nuns are dressed, ask yourself why? Muslim women dress the same

This is modesty in Islam, we still see modest women are the majority. but we don't see the same in the west.

If you look at the statistics 60% of rapes cases in the west are not reported. it is to do with slander.

If you see the statistics , you will find every 2 minutes in America there is a rape case (that is reported)

While in the Mulslim world one time every fews days.

Modesty protects women from such horrible things to happen to them.

If people follow the scriptures to the word, no such things would happen and since Muslims are in general observant to the rules of Islam, you will find crimes are very low compared to the western societies.

The Liberty you want women to have costs them dearly, it is better for them to have barriers not to cross or trespass in order to save themselves and their families the agony.

The punishment of adultery is very severe in Islam, and it is right to be, because the crime is very bad. to make accusation of rape is very bad, there has to be limits to it, you cannot just take the word of a woman that she was raped accusing an innocent man. because the penalty sometimes is death.
