This is the Misconception and this is the perception that the West have on Islam, which is wrong.

My wife she drives the car and she goes to work and she enjoys life , she is fun and it is fun to be around her, all her friends love her spirits. she is not genitally mutilated, because it is not compulsory in Islam for a woman to be circumcized. Her judgment is listened to. You must know that women are pationate and emotional by nature more than men, this nature could obfiscate (disturb) their proper judgment on circumstances, that is why God, said that a woman testimony is half of a man (Don't run away from the truth about the nature of women).

If you refer to Saudia, I confirm they are backward and this is not of Islam, a woman such as my wife can sit down in cafes or restaurants and take coffee with her colleagues (men and women) without being harassed (only in Saudi, the backward country who apply such stupid unIslamic law).

The law in Islam is to have one wife (unlike other religion that do not mention any limitation), there are circumstances that a mans can have more than one wife

Islam is the only religion that says and limits the wives number up to four, go to Judaism or christianity ,you will not find any limitation there.

  1. If his current wife is sick and cannot fullfil her marital duties and out of love and mercy the man keeps her, he can keep her and get married another time.
  2. If she cannot bear children, but the man wants to keep his 1st wife he can do that
  3. If there are more women than men in one country due to immigration or wars, the man can keep more than one woman under his protection.

For myself, my wife is in good health and she is pretty and she gave bitrth to lovely children for me and she is fun to be around, I don't need to have other wives. also God when He permitted more than one wife under certain circumstances (We know that Muslems abuse these circumstances) God said, you should give all your wives equal rights of everything

As I said the West have wrong perception about Islam and We muslims gave them this excuse. because Muslims don not practice Islam properly, they are ignorant.

Can you tell me why in the west one man have more than one mistress and one woman have more than one lover - and they bear bastard children, and may be confused who is the father

Can you tell me why women in the west are beaten up and brused

Can you tell why there are more men soldiers in the army more than women,

Can you tell me, why there are more men employees and workers more than women, where is equality? If you want to talk about women in Islam, first look at women in the West
