To Sherry: Veils for answering the nature's call, the Muslim men's right to rape the unveiled women

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men

Submitted by A very concerned reader, Feb 26, 2021 at 14:24

Hi there Sherry!

Six years feels definitely like 20 years in hell with a man who has this thinking. I feel you.

About the first video, yes, it's narrated that the Prophet's wives were told to wear the veil when they needed to go to "toilet" during the night. Otherwise, they could have been raped, because only slaves showed off their faces and hair. And yes, slaves could be used to have intercourse with them by Muslim men since they were the famous "what your right hand possesses" stated in Surah An-Nisa 4:24. How lovely!

The fairytale about how the verses of the veil were revealed:

"The wives of the Prophet (ﷺ) used to go to Al-Manasi, a vast open place (near Baqi' at Medina) to answer the call of nature at night. 'Umar used to say to the Prophet (ﷺ) "Let your wives be veiled," but Allah's Apostle did not do so. One night Sauda bint Zam'a the wife of the Prophet (ﷺ) went out at 'Isha' time and she was a tall lady. 'Umar addressed her and said, "I have recognized you, O Sauda." He said so, as he desired eagerly that the verses of Al-Hijab (the observing of veils by the Muslim women) may be revealed. So Allah revealed the verses of "Al-Hijab" (A complete body cover excluding the eyes)." Sahih al-Bukhari 146, Narrated 'Aisha.

Wives in plural. So cute picture...

From this, one can extract that every woman who is not covering herself properly, can be disrespected in any form since she is not labelling herself as a so-called woman of purity who has an owner. What a lot of nonsense. And how convenient for the Muslim men who can get away from doing haram things with the kafir women who in the end, are considered slaves as well. Dr Pipes, if this is not sick and enough to think that something must be very wrong in a holy scripture, I don't know what it is.

Muslimahs are slaves for their Muslim men too. But in Islam, this is called "marriage".
