Misinformation by Rukhsana Sharif

Reader comment on item: Arabian Sex Tourism
in response to reader comment: Horendous sin; who are they kidding?

Rukhsana Sharif wrote in her post:
"Quran advocates, again and again to free a slave as an attonement for sin"
Rukhsana , do you know how those poor slaves were acquired by Mohammed whom the quran so generously peaches to free to atone sins? read on:

Bukhari vol 3,Book46, No. 717

"Narrated Ibn Aun:
I wrote a letter to Nafi and Nafi wrote in reply to my letter that the Prophet had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day.

Sahih Bukhari: Volume 7, Book 62, Number 135:

Narrated Jabir:
We used to practice coitus interruptus with captured women during the lifetime of Allah's Apostle.
Bukhari Vol. 5, Bk 59, No. 512

Narrated Anas:
The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives, She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet .

Ms Ruksana also distorts an aya to make it sound very humane for orphans.She quotes 4.3 as follows:

"If you deem it best for the orphans, you may marry their mothers - you may marry two, three or four. if you fear lest you become unfair, then you shall be content with only one, or with what you already have. Additionally, you are thus more likely to avoid financial hardship."

Here are two different correct translations (quranbrowser.com)

004.003
1.: "And if ye are apprehensive that ye shall not deal fairly with orphans, then, marry other women who seem good in your eyes, marry but two, or three, or four; and if ye still fear that ye shall not act equitably, then one only; or the slave girls whom ye have acquired: this will make justice on your part easier".

2. "And if ye fear that ye shall not act with equity towards orphans [of the female sex], take in marriage of such [other] women as please you, two, or three, or four, [and not more]. But if ye fear that ye cannot act equitably [towards so many, marry] one [only], or the slaves girls which ye shall have acquired. This will be easier, that ye swerve not [from righteousness]".

As you noticed, there is no mention of marrying orphan's mothers. Besides she skipped the part which talks of the acquired slave girls/captured women whom Mohammed and jihadis enslave after killing their fathers, husbands and brothers as mentioned in the above hadiths..

Rukhsana talks of kindness shown to orphans in this aya. Does not she know that Mohammed was the one who had made those girls orphans , widows and homeless before raping them and then justified those rapes by saying Allah allows sex with captured women.

33.50 Mohammed you and all believers can have sex with your wives and also with your acquired slave girls and captured women. (summary of aya)

Rukhsana , please wake up.
