Submitted by John Bastile (Malaysia), Nov 22, 2005 at 08:55

Randa and Scholar,

You have both exchanged elaborate quotes and articles with Lisa. Thank you for your contribution. We value intellectual exchanges. Since, these are beliefs, I would like to ask a few questions. I understand that you like to paste lengthy articles, so I shall ask closed-ended questions, true or false questions.

1. Is it true that a Muslim man can marry more than one but a muslimah cannot? Yes or No?

2. Is it true that in an inheritance exercise, a Muslim husband will stand to inherit more than a muslimah? Yes or No?

3. Is it true that your prophet claimed that when he saw hell, the place he chose first to see, he saw that it was filled with women. Yes or No?

4. Is it true that the Black Stone that muslims prostrated to 5 times a day was once white? It was turned black because it was touched by menstruating women? Yes or No.

5. Is it true that the penalty for adultery is death for a muslim woman and 100 lashes for the muslim man, with a 1-year exile? Yes or No?

6. Is it true that when a muslim woman dies, she shall spent paradise, if she earned enough points, with her husband? Yes or No?

You may have your arguments and rationalisation. However, I just need to know whether the above questions are true or false. I do not seem to receive any direct answers so far. Perhaps, you may help.

Thank you.
