I am not sure whether muslims discovered algebra but I know they invented suicide bombing, honour killings, gangraping, wife beating, sexually molesting children and so many other evils. Mansoor, you know what marriage in Islam means. Please read:

" ‘Nikah' (Muslim marriage, النكاح) is an Arabic word whose literal meaning is penetration (Kaleeby, 2002; Warraq, 2005). It can be pronounced as ‘Nokh', which again means the ‘awrah', the giant vagina, i.e, the entire body of a Muslim woman. When the word ‘Nikah' is used to mean marriage, the actual meaning is not marriage but literally ‘sexual penetration'. Ignorant Muslims often use these words, without knowing their actual meaning and degrade their woman folks to the level of sex-slaves and cheap highway prostitutes.

Kasem (n. d) concluded that the method of securing such sexual / physical pleasure is very similar to a commercial / business transaction. In plain language, this is called prostitution. In all cases of marriage and sex, the women are treated merely as sex-objects, much like the provider of a service for which she must be paid some compensation.

The compensation (dower) for sexual service of the wife is known as ‘mahr', which all Muslim men must agree to pay before marriage. It can be immediate or deferred to a future date. No Islamic marriage is valid without the payment of ‘mahr'. Sometimes, Muslim women take keen pride in the sums paid for them as ‘mahr' without knowing the actual purpose of it. In reality, however, ‘mahr' is nothing but the payment to purchase a female body for sexual enjoyment. This degradation is sanctioned by Allah in ‘Sha'ria' (the divine law of Allah). So when a Muslim marries off his sister or daughter to another Muslim family, he actually auctions his sister's or daughter's soft and warm vagina for a quick financial profit. If the ‘mahr' is not sufficient, then as per ‘Sha'ria' Law, the marriage can be cancelled. Often the wife does not get to use the ‘mahr' for herself. This money is used to furnish the house of the newly married couple or her father grabs the entire amount (Warraq, 2005, p. 311). In an Islamic marriage, there is hardly a trace of romantic love. One rarely finds love poetry in their marriage songs. "

That is great, mehar is the advance rent for the use of the body. This should be a great religion.
