in response to reader comment: WOMEN IN ISLAM

I agree with you that modesty and the sanctity of a woman's body is a thing to be cherished and protected - certainly, not mocked. But I do highly question the afterlife according the Muslim faith: if a man (especially, a martyr) from Islam dies and goes to heaven, he will have multiple (I've heard up to 70) virgins and will live like a king. Where will all of these virgins come from IF women who follow Islam are to be reward as well? Because I don't know too many women who would enjoy sharing the same husband with 39 other women.

Just a thought.
