You again are saying the Bible is wrong but the Qur'an got it right. But did you ever stop to think that that verse in Genesis was written how many years ago, and as far as I can see it has held true to this day: "in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee"

You said:
(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

I don't see men having to suffer the pains of childbirth ("in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children")
So I'd say you're off on that one as Adam did not receive that extra punishment. God said from that day on that's how it would be, and that is exactly how it is. How can you disqualify that reality?
