Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men

Submitted by A very concerned reader, Feb 23, 2021 at 00:17

Dear readers,

I'm going to copy my last post on here because I think it won't be visible, and many women questioning their relationships deserve to keep this in mind as well since it's a very sensitive topic within Islam that they should outweigh before taking any decision, if still in doubts.

Reader Jessica gave me the idea when mentioning about paradise for Muslims and the promise of the virgins. From my point of view, their understanding of heaven, Jannah, paradise or whatever you want to call it, describes perfectly their mentality, their values and their sensitiveness towards human beings and, especially, towards women. This is what I replied to her:

"Islam is transmitted generation after generation. No room for any change since no one has the authority to touch any word, and it was said that no more prophets would be sent. This is bad luck!

You've touched a very interesting topic that women involved with Muslim men should know. Oh, the houris... Those virgins whose bones you can see... whose gender is confusing too. It's long, but I promise I'll come back with a comment about this. But yes, at least 70 houris as well as two of their earthly wives will be waiting for the righteous men. How nice for their Muslimahs wives to have to share their men as well in Jannah! Like if they hadn't enough licences in their life!

I'll get into this soon, but so far I can tell you that when you ask a Muslim man about this and how unfair is for women and what women will find for them in heaven apart from their so-loyal husbands surrounded by a great range of beautiful and pure creatures, they reply that Allah knows best, that they really don't know why this is the way it is, but maybe, having houris is not for being satisfied in Jannah in the same way that they do in their wordly life. What an excuse! Why then is mentioned that their hymen is untouched? What is the catch then? What kind of joke is this? We women must be so obedient that just questioning about this reveals our ignorance... Perhaps, this is what makes women happy in the afterlife. I was told so! Go figure what's going on in heaven! But definitely, for me, the picture of an orgy is not what I expect to find in there.

With this promise, they live wishing this afterlife paradise where also alcoholic beverages are allowed! What does Islam teach? I thought their strict code of rules was meant to get them apart of all kind of vices. But keeping the men drooling over these things all their life precisely for the things they have so forbidden doesn't look to me like well educating about how to develop healthy and righteous habits! It sounds more like a punishment. Sadistic strategy, I'd say. Did I say already that following Islam entails being manipulated through cult leaders' techniques? So you can see that getting to know Islam is nothing but disappointment. And the more one learns, the more one thinks that it's impossible that the Qur'an reveals the true words of any God.

No wonder why many reverts start to think that maybe hell is not that bad... True story."

According to this description of heaven that was given to Muslims through the Qur'an and the Hadiths, one can only extract these conclusions:

They aren't taught about what love in its pure essence is, their values about what's important in life are absent if the very best which will be given to them as a reward comes in the form of frivolous, frugal and deviant things. This is what they are told to desire! This God does not teach them how to treat human beings with respect if He allows such differences among men and women, favouring always the former. Thus, this God has zero compassion towards human beings' feelings, especially towards women. Lastly, this God rewards His followers with lusty things. And these followers have to be, of course!, men.

My dear readers, these are the values that Islam preaches.
