Blame it on Eve.!!!!

Everyone blames it on Eve. That is why there have been so much abuse and
disregard to the women in this world. That is why the women never achieved
full equality in rights with their fellow men, even if they were more qualified.

We know that history is written by the victor.
The men who physically overpowered the women wrote the history of
everything we learn in school, and out of school.

The Bible we have today was corrupted by men who have no less of
enthusiasm to downplay the status of women than some of the men living in this

The only unaltered word of God that we have today, is the QURAN.
That is where we can find the truth about the status of women in relation to man
as far as God is concerned. All the other books have been tampered with by men
who have many more other interests than serving God ALONE.

Because the Quran is the Ultimate Truth, we can without hesitation compare it
to all that we have of older scriptures, like the Old and New Testament, and we
can without difficulty sense the alteration that was introduced into these Holy books.

Where does Eve, the mother of all the human beings stand in the Bible
compared to the Quran?

Just a quick study of the way the Bible treats Eve would explain the reason
behind all the problems that the women are suffering today.

Read Genesis 3:1-24

"When God asked Adam why did he eats from the forbidden tree, he answered,
according to the O.T. "And the man said, the WOMAN whom thou gavest to be
with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. And the Lord God said unto
the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, the serpent
beguiled me, and I did eat." Genesis 3:12-13

"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and
her seed; it shall bruise the head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Unto the woman he (God) said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy
conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall
be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee." Genesis 3 : 15-16

As we can see here, Adam who committed the sin of eating from the forbidden
tree blame it on Eve ? And since then, men of all generations have been
blaming Eve for their sins. You see that God in the Bible is blaming Eve and
punishing her and all the Eves to come for the sin she did.

Does the Quran present the story of Adam and Eve differently?

If you read the same story in the Quran, (See 2:31-36),

(7:19-25),(20:115-123)you will find that God in the Quran :

(1) never blamed Eve for the sin that Adam committed . God spoke about both
Adam and Eve being duped by Satan, and never singled Eve out.

(2) Adam is held responsible for the sin he committed, he cannot blame it on
Eve, since he is as a responsible human being as she.

(3) Both Adam and Eve were punished for their sin by being ousted from

(4) Eve did not receive any harsher admonition than Adam and was not
threatened by misery for herself and all her female offsprings as the Bible

(5) In Islam (Submission in English), all the stories about Eve being
responsible for getting Adam to sin can only be found in the Hadiths Books
and never found in the Quran.

Like many Hadiths in the Hadiths books, you can easily recognize the influence
of Jewish beliefs on those who wrote these books, alleging the false stories and
sayings to the prophet Muhammed.

In summary, while the Bible ( and the corrupted hadiths) blame it on Eve, the
Quran holds both Adam and Eve responsible for the sin of eating from the
forbidden tree. Islam (Submission) holds everyone responsible for his/her
sins. No blaming of parents, spouse, teachers, preachers, brothers, sisters,
friends, or any one is accepted.

I hope all this gets through to you.
