Why is there slavery in Islam?

Why are there child suicide martyrs in Islam?

Why is there public stoning in Islam?

Why are child marriages permitted in Islam?

Why is the beating of wives pemitted in Islam?

Why are "honor killings" permitted in Islam?

Why is conversion out of Islam punishable by death?

Don't think I'm picking on you - I would really like to know your opinion.

If you say it's because these things are not truly a part of Islam, then why doesn't Islam do something about them?

People do not criticise Islam out of the blue.
