Islam came to honor women

in response to reader comment: Islam does treat women as a commodity

What are ou saying doesn't make sense what so ever!!! Islam came in a time where women were extremely exploited by arabs and Islam gave them rights when they had no rights in their community and were treated as objects. Islam asks women to cover their body not a sign of subordination but a sign of respect to her body that is only for her and who ever she chooses to be with (her husband), she is asked to cover her body so men when look at her doesn't think of how nice is her ass or something else but what does she has in her mind and don't try to fool yourself and say that when you see a woman that is underdressed you thing of her intellectual capacity and you are not sexually desiring her.

Islam came to forbid bearing baby girls alive when it was done by arabs before islam because they were ashamed of their daughters. When Islam punnish adultery They should punnish, by the way, BOTH men ANd woman for their sin and not only woman . The condition for this is to be seen in doing the act by at least FOUR persons which is almost impossible if you are not doing it in public places, where it is seen as unaccepted by any human being even atheist. Islam was the first to accord the right to vote to women and they would share their views in the mosque about politics and religious issues. Soo pleaseeeee don't ever judge Islam by the few cases you saw in the bias media and look into the Quran and official books.
