MUSLIMS ARE PURE ON THE SIGHT OF ALLHA DUE TO OUR BELIEVES IN ALLAH & THE LAST DAY

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: Nozzi: Would Ali's raping a Muslim slave girl have made the crime any less horrendous?

Sahih Bukhari, Book 5, Hadith 281, "Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet came across me in one of the streets of Medina and at that time I was Junub. So I slipped away from him and went to take a bath. On my return the Prophet said, "O Abu Huraira! Where have you been?" I replied, "I was Junub, so I disliked to sit in your company." The Prophet said, "Subhan Allah! A believer never becomes impure." As the phrase, A believer, is mentioned in Bukhari, Book 5, Hadith 281 with the phrase, never becomes impure, it implies that all muslims are pure on the sight of Allah even muslim slaves.

When we read the history of Bukhari, we have to know the women's status at the time of history when Muhammad was there. Women at that time have no authority over men during that time and these caused them to have disadvantage over men since many women might have been beaten by men for their wrong act. During that period, men usually were playing significant role in the family since they were those that support the whole families. Men could have many wives but not for women. However, women could not voice out in regard to their unhappiness.

However, in this modern society, we treat women to be different from the past in which many muslim women could hold high status in the public. Women might even support the whole families in replacement of their husbands. They are more independent as compared to the past. Many women even join workforces and their earning incomes might even be comparatively higher than men nowadays. To treat women as the least in the muslim families should not be applicable nowadays. The violence with women from their husbands have to cease in the muslims' families. If you would browse through the internet, you would have found many muslim women fight for their rights in the muslim families so as not to be beaten by their husbands.

Consider Allah's duty among muslims is to preach to non-muslims rather than to ill-treat muslim women.

We, moderate muslims, in Singapore can have more than one wife due to the advantage of muslim law. However, most of the muslims in Singapore would rather prefer to have only one wife and we do not ill-treat our muslim wives since we respect each other.
