Ibn Sina, what about Muslim women

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Jenifer- Accept ISLAM and Enjoy in the Heavens

Submitted by Infidel (Canada), Feb 28, 2008 at 00:52

Your letter to Jenifer is misleading. If you've read the Qur'an or Hadiths, you would know that no women ever go to heaven. And why should they? After all, the Muslim men go to heaven and they will rejoice with the "houris". So why do they need Muslim women in heaven?

Volume 4, Book 55, Number 544:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "The first group of people who will enter Paradise, will be glittering like the full moon and those who will follow them, will glitter like the most brilliant star in the sky. They will not urinate, relieve nature, spit, or have any nasal secretions. Their combs will be of gold, and their sweat will smell like musk. The aloes-wood will be used in their centers. Their wives will be houris. All of them will look alike and will resemble their father Adam (in stature), sixty cubits tall."
