"Islam gave women rights which women in that era had never had. This is just an example of what true islam was".

--It would be interesting to know more about these rights, as an example of Magnificent Islam.

Also, if that was in that culture, territory and era, please tell us about the rights women in Islam enjoy in keeping with the culture and territories in the 21st century, whether they be in the US, UK, Malaysia, Sudan, Saudi Arabia or Pakistan.

Pardon me, but some of us know nothing about these magnificent rights; on the other hand, we do know that they could be married at age 6 and enjoy conjugal relationships with men the age of their grandfathers at 9. Also that they could be taken as slaves; and the enjoyment of temporary 3-day marriages with soldiers. If their father-in-law rapes them, they have to be divorced from their husband. If they are raped, they must produce the witnesses, or be prepared to be lynched as adulteresses if they report the rape. Village councils can order their gang rape, and they must not make an issue out of it...

Please also tell us if pious Muslim women are qualified to go to heaven. Can women who are not virgins go there? What are the heavenly enjoyments in store for them? Can they enjoy 10,000 slaves?

Lastly, Islam, as we all know, is the religion of equality. All Muslims -- we are talking about the men now -- are equal. Pious Muslims go to heaven, all others are debarred. Then where do the 10,000 slaves who serve them in heaven come from, according to the Holy Koran, and the Hadis?

Did the Prophet(PBUH) or Allah really mean that you get to enjoy all corporeal enjoyments, 72 virgins, 28 young boys (=100) plus 10,000 slaves in heaven, and that is worth all the jihad against those who won't heed the message on earth, including the Judeo-Christians, Paganists, Polytheists, Atheists, Shias, Ahmediyas and all?
Finally, if we promise to you the same enjoyments here on earth, will you give up Jihad?
