Islamic Sharia Laws (11 Oct 2016 NewAgeIslam.Com)


Too Many Misperceptions about Muslims, Shariah Law



By S. Amjad Hussain

Oct. 10, 2016

My Sept. 26 column on Shariah Law elicited negative comments by many readers. Some of them thought, erroneously, that I was advocating implementation of Shariah Law in the United States. I said no such thing.

On the contrary, after describing the variations in the Shariah Law, I emphasized that there was no chance it could ever be implemented in the United States.

Every religion has a set of guiding principles which dictate how the believers should conduct themselves — both in public and in private lives. Hadaka, the Jewish Law, for example, encompasses all aspects of Jewish life, including daily routine, food, personal hygiene, marriage, and observance of Shabbat.

Shariah also prescribes guidelines that Muslims are supposed to follow in their daily lives, and a great majority of Muslims follow them.

On the question of warfare, treatment of prisoners, and punishments for crimes, however, there are wide differences among the scholars. In this context, the Taliban and al-Qaeda are the outliers. The Shariah practiced by the so-called Islamic State or ISIS is anathema to even al-Qaeda and the Taliban. The logical question is whether these Shariah are accepted by a majority of Muslims. The answer is an emphatic no.

There is no single codified law that can be called the only Shariah Law. There are many variations in the interpretation of the Qur’an and the secondary literature, and that gives rise to vast differences of opinion among the Muslims. That is precisely why the law followed in Saudi Arabia, for example, has little resemblance to the law followed in many other Islamic countries.

Let us take the example of a Muslim who does not believe in certain punitive laws, say stoning for adultery, or beheadings for murder, but still follows certain guidelines in his or her personal life.

And suppose Newt Gingrich would, if he is able to, set up a huge screening process where every Muslim in America is asked a simple question: Do you believe in Shariah? I bet a great majority of 3 million Muslims living in America, including yours truly, would have to be forcefully expelled from the United States.

Such an impractical and dumb idea is reminiscent of the plebiscites and referendums that tin-pot dictators hold to consolidate their power and bring a fig leaf of legitimacy to their rule. One would expect something more intelligent and coherent from Mr. Gingrich, who has a doctorate in history from Tulane University and taught history at West Georgia College.

My own take is that he knows better. But during the selection process for Republican vice president — he was one of the three men under consideration — he went overboard in order to shore up his credentials as a strong anti-terrorism (read anti-Muslim) candidate.

Thanks to the concentrated efforts by a number of organizations and rich individuals, an Islamophobic industry has been churning out material that paints Islam as a monolith and Muslims as mindless robots who follow the dictates of a religion that a great majority of Muslims do not recognize.

This propaganda has permeated far and wide and has affected otherwise educated and rational people.

It was evident at a dinner I recently attended at a friend’s home. He is a Muslim, and one of his close friends, a Catholic, had invited a group of people to discuss the phenomenon of terrorism. They were particularly interested in the genesis of my 2001 book on the Taliban that I wrote after a visit to Taliban-ruled Afghanistan in 2000.

During the dinner, a successful Toledo businessman, now retired, leaned over and said that Muslims and their religion were the cause of much of the turmoil in the world. I asked him if he had met any Muslims, and he said he had not. He certainly knew a few of them because one of the hosts was a Muslim and at the table there were at least three other Muslims. They did not fit his image of a Muslim.

The gentleman did not realize that the friendly and level-headed host he had known for years was a Muslim. He is not alone. There are millions of people in this country who have never met a Muslim, have not visited a mosque, or tried to learn about Islam but instead are content to accept, as gospel truth, what the Islamophobic industry dishes out.

  • Sharia law forbids financial institution to lend money with interest.  Quran does not entirely forbid.
    (سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #275)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    Those who eat Riba (usury) will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by Shaitan (Satan) leading him to insanity. That is because they say: "Trading is only like Riba (usury)," whereas Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba (usury). So whosoever receives an admonition from his Lord and stops eating Riba (usury) shall not be punished for the past; his case is for Allah (to judge); but whoever returns [to Riba (usury)], such are the dwellers of the Fire - they will abide therein.
    The word, usury, in Quran 2:275 implies financial institution charges super high interest on public loan.  As Quran 2:275 forbids financial institutions, such as, loan shark, in charging high interest, it permits them to charge low or reasonable interest on public loan.

  • Sharia law supports that all music is haram.  Quran does not support it.
    Quranic verses that have been used to support music is haram are:
    "And of the people there is he who buys a ‘vain talk’ so that he may lead others astray from the path of Allah without (real) knowledge and takes it (the revelation of Allah) for a mockery for these shall be a disgracing chastisement (punishment)." (31:6).
    "Indeed successful are the believers those who in their prayer are humble and those who keep themselves aloof from Vain (words and deeds)." (23:1-3).
     "So abstain from the pollution of the idols and abstain from false vain words." (22:30).
    Nothing is mentioned in the above quranic verse about music other than the phrase, vain words.  How is the phrase, idle work, to be defined in Quran?
    (سورة لقمان, Luqman, Chapter #31, Verse #6)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks (i.e. music, singing, etc.) to mislead (men) from the Path of Allah without knowledge, and takes it (the Path of Allah, or the Verses of the Qur'an) by way of mockery. For such there will be a humiliating torment (in the Hell-fire).’
    As the phrase, idle talks, is mentioned in Quran 31:6 with the phrase, to mislead (men) from the path of Allah, it implies that the phrase, vain words, in Quran should be defined as things, such as, music, singing and etc., that could be used to mislead Muslims from the right Path of Allah.
    The hadith verses below even condemn those music which could mislead Muslims from the right path of Allah as musical instruments of Satan:
    ‘Narrated Aisha: Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) came to my house while two girls were singing beside me the songs of Buath (a story about the war between the two tribes of the Ansar, the Khazraj and the Aus, before Islam). The Prophet (p.b.u.h) lay down and turned his face to the other side. Then Abu Bakr came and spoke to me harshly saying, "musical instruments of Satan near the Prophet (p.b.u.h) ?" Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) turned his face towards him and said, "Leave them."… (Book #15, Hadith #70)’
    Narrated Aisha: Abu Bakr came to my house while two small Ansari girls were singing beside me the stories of the Ansar concerning the Day of Buath. And they were not singers. Abu Bakr said protestingly, "musical instruments of Satan in the house of Allah's Apostle !" It happened on the 'Id day and Allah's Apostle said, "O Abu Bakr! There is an 'Id for every nation and this is our 'Id."  (Book #15, Hadith #72)
    As the word, Satan, is mentioned in this phrase, musical instruments of Satan, it implies that the so-called, music, as mentioned here would lead to the destruction from Satan.  What is the function of Satan in Quran?
    (سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #268)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘Shaitan (Satan) threatens you with poverty and orders you to commit Fahsha (evil deeds, illegal sexual intercourse, sins); whereas Allah promises you Forgiveness from Himself and Bounty, and Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower.’
    As the phrase, Satan, is mentioned in Quran 2:268 with the phrase, evil deeds, it implies that Satan’s aim in abusing music to cause Muslims to do evil deeds and that is why Muslims must be cautious in choosing the right music and songs.  Muslims should not listen to those songs that would lead Muslims to sin, such as adultery, aggressive fighting and etc.
    The same is mentioned in the quranic verse below:
    (سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #169)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘He [Shaitan (satan)] commands you only what is evil and Fahsha (sinful), and that you should say against Allah what you know not.’
    Hadith below mentions that some people will consider illegal sex, the use of musical instrument to be illegal:
    Narrated Abu 'Amir or Abu Malik Al-Ash'ari: that he heard the Prophet saying, "From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. And there will be some people who will stay near the side of a mountain and in the evening their shepherd will come to them with their sheep and ask them for something, but they will say to him, 'Return to us tomorrow.' Allah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and He will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection."  (Book #69, Hadith #494v)
    As the phrase illegal sexual intercourse, is mentioned in Quran 69:494v with the phrase, the use of musical instrument, it implies that the phrase, musical instrument, here should refer only to those evil music that would lead Muslims to evil deeds instead of covering also all other good music.
    The following hadith verse mentions that Abu Musa did not reject musical wind-instrument of the family of David:
    Narrated Abu Musa: That the Prophet said to him' "O Abu Musa! You have been given one of the musical wind-instruments of the family of David .'  (Book #61, Hadith #568)
    As the phrase, musical wind-instruments, is mentioned in the book #61, hadith #568 with the phrase, the family of David, it implies that the musical instrument that they received was from David.  As the musical instrument was originally owned by David, the music that he played could not be considered as evil.
    Hadith verses below support that the prophet did not condemn people in singing:
    Narrated Anas: The Prophet was on a journey and a slave named Anjasha was chanting (singing) for the camels to let them go fast (while driving). The Prophet said, "O Anjasha, drive slowly (the camels) with the glass vessels!" Abu Qilaba said, "By the glass vessels' he meant the women (riding the camels)."  (Book #73, Hadith #229)
    Narrated Ar-Rubai bint Muauwidh: The Prophet came to me after consuming his marriage with me and sat down on my bed as you (the sub-narrator) are sitting now, and small girls were beating the tambourine and singining in lamentation of my father who had been killed on the day of the battle of Badr. Then one of the girls said, "There is a Prophet amongst us who knows what will happen tomorrow." The Prophet said (to her)," Do not say this, but go on saying what you have spoken before."  (Book #59, Hadith #336)
    It is erroneous to assume that all music is evil since the prophet did praise and worship Allah as mentioned below:
    Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: Allah's Apostle in his fatal illness came out, wrapped with a sheet, and his head was wrapped with an oiled bandage. He sat on the pulpit, and praising and glorifying Allah, he said, "Now then, people will increase but the Ansar will decrease in number, so much so that they, compared with the people, will be just like the salt in the! meals. So, if any of you should take over the authority by which he can either benefit some people or harm some others, he should accept the goodness of their good people (i.e. Ansar) and excuse the faults of their wrong-doers." That was the last gathering which the Prophet attended.  (Book #56, Hadith #822)
    Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: Allah's Apostle (in his fatal illness) came out wrapped in a sheet covering his shoulders and his head was tied with an oily tape of cloth till he sat on the pulpit, and after praising and glorifying Allah, he said, "Then-after, O people! The people will go on increasing, but the Ansar will go on decreasing till they become just like salt in a meal. So whoever amongst you will be the ruler and have the power to harm or benefit others, should accept the good of the good-doers amongst them and excuse the wrong-doers amongst them."  (Book #58, Hadith #144)
    Narrated 'Abdullah: Whenever Allah's Apostle returned from a Ghazwa, Hajj or 'Umra, he used to start (saying), "Allahu-Akbar," thrice and then he would say, "None has the right to be worshipped except Allah alone Who has no partners. To Him belongs the Kingdom, all praises are for Him, and He is able to do all things (i.e. Omnipotent). We are returning with repentance (to Allah) worshipping, prostrating, and praising our Lord. Allah has fulfilled His Promise, made His Slave victorious, and He (Alone) defeated the clans (of infidels) ."  (Book #59, Hadith #442)
    Narrated 'Aisha: The Prophet did something as it was allowed from the religious point of view but some people refrained from it. When the Prophet heard of that, he, after glorifying and praising Allah, said, "Why do some people refrain from doing something which I do? By Allah, I know Allah more than they."  (Book #92, Hadith #404)
    (سورة الأعراف, Al-A'raaf, Chapter #7, Verse #206)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    Surely, those who are with your Lord (angels) are never too proud to perform acts of worship to Him, but they glorify His praise and prostrate themselves before Him.
     If all music is evil, there is no reason why Dawud was given with Zabur (Psalms).  The following are the extracts:
    (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #163)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    Verily, We have sent the revelation to you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) as We sent the revelation to Nuh (Noah) and the Prophets after him; We (also) sent the revelation to Ibrahim (Abraham), Isma'il (Ishmael), Ishaq (Isaac), Ya'qub (Jacob), and Al-Asbat [the offspring of the twelve sons of Ya'qub (Jacob)], 'Îsa (Jesus), Ayyub (Job), Yunus (Jonah), Harun (Aaron), and Sulaiman (Solomon); and to Dawud (david) We gave the Zabur (Psalms).
    (سورة الإسراء, Al-Israa, Chapter #17, Verse #55)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    And your Lord knows best all who are in the heavens and the earth. And indeed, We have preferred some of the Prophets above others, and to Dawud (David) We gave the Zabur (psalms).

  • Sharia law supports that a man has the right to have up to four wives and none of them have a right to divorce him even if he is polygamous.  Quran supports otherwise.
    (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #3)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘And if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphan-girls then marry (other) women of your choice, two or three, or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one or (the slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice.’
    As the phrase, if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), is mentioned in Quran 4:3 with the phrase, only one or (the slaves) that your right hand possess, Quran restricts a man to only a wife instead of more than one if they could not be able to deal with them justly.  In this modern world, women would find it to be unacceptable for men to have more husbands due to jealousy and frustration especially women are more educated than in the past.  How could a man be able to deal with more wives in this contemporary world due to majority of women could not accept them to be so?  It is hard to condemn why women in the past could accept a man to have more wives due to they might be simple-minded and are willing to accept that practice.  As women could not accept a man to have more than a wife in this contemporary world, Quran 4:3 restricts a man to have a wife due to he could not be able to deal with more than a wife justly especially jealousy.
    Quran 85:10 forbids a modern man to insist to have more than a wife to cause his wife to have mental torture that is filled with jealousy as a result of his act in having more than a wife.
    (سورة البروج, Al-Burooj, Chapter #85, Verse #10)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘Verily, those who put into trial the believing men and believing women (by torturing them and burning them), and then do not turn in repentance (to Allah), then they will have the torment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire.’
    Besides, Quran 24:32 forbids Muslims to be polygamous.
     (سورة النور, An-Noor, Chapter #24, Verse #32)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘And marry those among you who are single (i.e. a man who has no wife and the woman who has no husband) and (also marry) the Salihun (pious, fit and capable ones) of your (male) slaves and maid-servants (female slaves). If they be poor, Allah will enrich them out of His Bounty. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knowing (about the state of the people).’
    As the phrase, marry, is mentioned in Quran 24:32 with the phrase, those among you who are single, it implies that Quran discourages a woman to marry a man that has more wives.
    Quran 2:227 mentions that both husband and wife could make decision in regards to divorce.
    (سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #227)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘And if they decide upon divorce, then Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.’
    The word, they, in Quran 2:227 should refer to wives also since the word, wives is mentioned in Quran 2:226. 
    (سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #226)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘Those who take an oath not to have sexual relation with their WIVES must wait for four months, then if they return (change their idea in this period), verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.’
    As women are granted with the right to divorce, it is erroneous to support that none of the women could have a right to divorce their husbands if they are polygamous.

  • Sharia law demands a woman must produce four male witnesses in order to prove rape.  It forbids to use evidence, i.e. fingerprint, to prove rape.
    Let’s meditate Quran 4:15 as below carefully:
    (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #15)
    ‘And those of your women who commit illegal sexual intercourse, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them (i.e. women) to houses until death comes to them or Allah ordains for them some (other) way.’
    As the phrase, take four witnesses from amongst you, in Quran 4:15 does not restrict themselves to be only male witnesses, it should include also female witnesses.  By restricting this Quranic verse to only male witnesses, it biases against female witnesses and causes judgment could not be performed with justice.  Besides, this verse does not forbid the victim to act as one of the witnesses.
    Quran 24:6 permits to use four testimonies in the absence of witnesses.  The following is the extract:
    (سورة النور, An-Noor, Chapter #24, Verse #6)
    ‘And for those who accuse their wives, but have no witnesses except themselves, let the testimony of one of them be four testimonies (i.e. testifies four times) by Allah that he is one of those who speak the truth.’
    The phrase, accuse their wives, in Quran 24:6 could refer to accusing wives for committing sexual intercourse.  As the phrase, no witnesses except themselves, is mentioned in Quran 24:6 with the phrase, let the testimony…be four testimonies, it implies that Quran permits to use four testimonies to testify whether illegal sexual relationship has been committed at the absence four witnesses.
    Quran demands Muslims to do justice even in acting as witnesses:
    (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #135)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even though it be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, be he rich or poor, Allah is a Better Protector to both (than you). So follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you avoid justice; and if you distort your witness or refuse to give it, verily, Allah is Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do.
    The following are the extracts that Quran demands Muslims to judge with justice:
    (سورة المائدة, Al-Maaida, Chapter #5, Verse #42)
    (They like to) listen to falsehood, to devour anything forbidden. So if they come to you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), either judge between them, or turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they cannot hurt you in the least. And if you judge, judge with justice between them. Verily, Allah loves those who act justly.
    (سورة ص, Saad, Chapter #38, Verse #22)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    When they entered in upon Dawud (David), he was terrified of them. They said: "Fear not! (We are) two litigants, one of whom has wronged the other, therefore judge between us with truth, and treat us not with injustice, and guide us to the Right Way.
     (سورة المائدة, Al-Maaida, Chapter #5, Verse #8)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah as just witnesses; and let not the enmity and hatred of others make you avoid justice. Be just: that is nearer to piety; and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do.
    (سورة المائدة, Al-Maaida, Chapter #5, Verse #42)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    (They like to) listen to falsehood, to devour anything forbidden. So if they come to you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم), either judge between them, or turn away from them. If you turn away from them, they cannot hurt you in the least. And if you judge, judge with justice between them. Verily, Allah loves those who act justly.
    Quran 11:85 demands Muslims to do justice without corruption, i.e. receiving bribery.  The following is the extract:
    (سورة هود, Hud, Chapter #11, Verse #85)
    "And O my people! Give full measure and weight in justice and reduce not the things that are due to the people, and do not commit mischief in the land, causing corruption.
    Quran 4:30 seems to condemn those people commit injustice in their judgment:
    (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #30)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    And whoever commits that through aggression and injustice, We shall cast him into the Fire, and that is easy for Allah.
    As Quran demands Muslims to judge with justice, they should use their skill, knowledge and whatever evidence, i.e. fingerprints, which could assist them to judge justly whether a person has been committed adultery.  Without the existence of evidence, judgment might not be performed with justice since a rapist could be able to escape from punishment and this would cause the victim to suffer from mental torture ultimately in which Quran 85:10 forbids.
    (سورة البروج, Al-Burooj, Chapter #85, Verse #10)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    Verily, those who put into trial the believing men and believing women (by torturing them and burning them), and then do not turn in repentance (to Allah), then they will have the torment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire

  • Sharia law supports that a man is allowed to have sex with slave women and women captured in battle, and if the enslaved woman is married her marriage is annulled. Quran supports the reverse.

    Hadith forbids Muslims to have sexual relationship with slave girls as mentioned below: Narrated 'Aisha : In the life-time of Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) the sun eclipsed, so he led the people in prayer, and stood up and performed a long Qiyam, then bowed for a long while. He stood up again and performed a long Qiyam but this time the period of standing was shorter than the first. He bowed again for a long time but shorter than the first one, then he prostrated and prolonged the prostration. He did the same in the second Raka as he did in the first and then finished the prayer; by then the sun (eclipse) had cleared.

    He delivered the Khutba (sermon) and after praising and glorifying Allah he said, "The sun and the moon are two signs against the signs of Allah; they do not eclipse on the death or life of anyone. So when you see the eclipse, remember Allah and say Takbir, pray and give Sadaqa." The Prophet then said, "O followers of Muhammad! By Allah! There is none who has more ghaira (self-respect) than Allah as HE HAS FORBIDDEN THAT HIS SLAVES, MALE OR FEMALE (ILLEGAL SEXUAL INTERCOURSE). O followers of Muhammad! By Allah! If you knew that which I know you would laugh little and weep much. (Book #18, Hadith #154 As hadith forbids Muslims to have illegal sexual relationship with slave girls, they should not treat them to be sexual slave girls.

    Quran supports that Muslims could only have sexual relationship with slave girls if they wed them so that they could be their legal wives. The following is the extract: (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #25)-Mohsin Khan translation: ‘And whoever of you have not the means wherewith to wed free, believing women, they may wed believing girls from among those (slaves) whom your right hands possess, and Allah has full knowledge about your Faith; you are one from another. Wed them with the permission of their own folk (guardians, Auliya' or masters) and give them their Mahr according to what is reasonable; they (the above said captive and slave-girls) should be chaste, not committing illegal sex, nor taking boy-friends. And after they have been taken in wedlock, if they commit illegal sexual intercourse, their punishment is half that for free (unmarried) women.

     This is for him among you who is afraid of being harmed in his religion or in his body; but it is better for you that you practise self-restraint, and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.’ Quran 4:19 forbids Muslims to inherit or wed slave girls to be against their will. Or in other words, if the will of slave girls is not to have them to be their wives, Muslims must not force them to wed them. The following is the extract: (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #19)-Mohsin Khan translation: ‘O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will; and you should not treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the Mahr you have given them, unless they commit open illegal sexual intercourse; and live with them honourably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings through it a great deal of good.’ Quran 24:32 forbids a Muslim man to marry a slave girl who has a husband and it also forbids a Muslims to practise polygamy. (سورة النور, An-Noor, Chapter #24, Verse #32)-Mohsin Khan translation: ‘And marry those among you who are single (i.e. a man who has no wife and the woman who has no husband) and (also marry) the Salihun (pious, fit and capable ones) of your (male) slaves and maid-servants (female slaves).

     If they be poor, Allah will enrich them out of His Bounty. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knowing (about the state of the people). As the phrase, marry those among you who are single…a man who has no wife, is mentioned in Quran 24:32, it forbids a Muslim to practise polygamy. As the phrase, marry those among you…the woman who has no husband, is mentioned in Quran 24:32, it implies that Quran forbids a Muslim to marry a slave that has a husband. Quran 2:234 forbids previous marriage of a slave to be annulled just because she has turned up to be a slave since divorce must be done in a just and honourable manner. (سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #234)-Mohsin Khan translation: ‘And those of you who die and leave wives behind them, they (the wives) shall wait (as regards their marriage) for four months and ten days, then when they have fulfilled their term, there is no sin on you if they (the wives) dispose of themselves in a just and honourable manner (i.e. they can marry). And Allah is Well-Acquainted with what you do.’ As the phrase, dispose of themselves in a just and honourable manner, is mentioned in Quran 2:234, it implies that the divorce of a slave has to be done in a just manner. A Muslim should not treat the previous marriage of a slave to be invalid unless the divorce has been done in a just and honourable manner.

  • Sharia law mentions that a Muslim man is forgiven if he kills his wife at the time he caught her in the act of adultery.  However, the opposite is not true for women, since the man ‘could be married to the woman he was caught with.’  Quran opposes this practice.
    (سورة البروج, Al-Burooj, Chapter #85, Verse #10)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘Verily, those who put into trial the believing men and believing women (by torturing them and burning them), and then do not turn in repentance (to Allah), then they will have the torment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire.’
    As the phrase, believing men and believing women..torturing them and burning, is mentioned in Quran 85:10 with the phrase, they will have the torment of hell, it implies that Muslim man must not kill believing wives.  Thus, it grants no exception for a man could be married to the woman he was caught with.

  • Sharia law supports that a rapist may only be required to pay the bride-money (dowry) without marrying the rape victim. Is the above practice fair to believing women, i.e. those who believe in Allah, since a rapist could suffer minor punishment? Would the above practice cause permanent mental torture to a rape victim, i.e. those who believe in Allah? If above practice would cause mental torture to the rape victim who is a believer, Quran 85:10 forbids. (سورة البروج, Al-Burooj, Chapter #85, Verse #10)-Mohsin Khan translation: ‘Verily, those who put into trial the believing men and believing women (by torturing them and burning them), and then do not turn in repentance (to Allah), then they will have the torment of hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire.’

  • Sharia law never abolished slavery, sexual slavery and highly regulates it.  As master will not be punished for killing his slave.

    Hadith forbids sexual slavery since it forbids Muslims to receive income through prostitution from slave girls.  The following is the extract:

    Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet prohibited the earnings of slave girls (through prostitution).  (Book #36, Hadith #483)

    Besides, Hadith forbids Muslims to have sexual relationship with slave girls as mentioned below:

    Narrated 'Aisha : In the life-time of Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) the sun eclipsed, so he led the people in prayer, and stood up and performed a long Qiyam, then bowed for a long while. He stood up again and performed a long Qiyam but this time the period of standing was shorter than the first. He bowed again for a long time but shorter than the first one, then he prostrated and prolonged the prostration. He did the same in the second Raka as he did in the first and then finished the prayer; by then the sun (eclipse) had cleared. He delivered the Khutba (sermon) and after praising and glorifying Allah he said, "The sun and the moon are two signs against the signs of Allah; they do not eclipse on the death or life of anyone. So when you see the eclipse, remember Allah and say Takbir, pray and give Sadaqa." The Prophet then said, "O followers of Muhammad! By Allah! There is none who has more ghaira (self-respect) than Allah as HE HAS FORBIDDEN THAT HIS SLAVES, MALE OR FEMALE (ILLEGAL SEXUAL INTERCOURSE). O followers of Muhammad! By Allah! If you knew that which I know you would laugh little and weep much.  (Book #18, Hadith #154

     

    Killing slaves are not permissible from hadith’s point of view.  The following is the extract:

    Narrated Al-Ma'rur: At Ar-Rabadha I met Abu Dhar who was wearing a cloak, and his slave, too, was wearing a similar one. I asked about the reason for it. He replied, "I abused a person by calling his mother with bad names." The Prophet said to me, 'O Abu Dhar! Did you abuse him by calling his mother with bad names You still have some characteristics of ignorance. YOUR SLAVES ARE YOUR BROTHERS and Allah has put them under your command. So whoever has a brother under his command should feed him of what he eats and dress him of what he wears. DO NOT ASK THEM (SLAVES) TO DO THINGS BEYOND THEIR CAPACITY (POWER) AND IF YOU DO SO, then HELP THEM' "  (Book #2, Hadith #29)

    As the phrase, your slaves are your brothers, is mentioned in the book #2, Hadith #29, killing slaves would turn up to be not permissible from Hadith’s point of view.  The phrase, help them, in the book #2, hadith #29 implies that Muslims should take care of them.  As Hadith demands Muslims to take care of slaves, it is erroneous to support that the master could not be punished for killing his slave.

  • What is slavery from hadith’s  and quran’s point of view?
    Muhammad is mentioned in the Book #1, Hadith #65 (Sahih Bukhari and the Book #52, Hadith #191 (Sahih Bukhari) to be the slave of Allah.  If the word, slave, in the book of Hadith is meant to be evil and to be abused and tortured by Muslims, there is no reason why Muhammad could be called himself to be the slave of Allah since it would turn up to be that the prophet might have been chained and locked up and abused or even worse, be beaten by other Muslims.
    The book of Hadith demands Muslims not to force slaves to do things beyond their capacity.  Not only that, it demands Muslims to assist them if they encounter it.  The following is the extract:
    Narrated Al-Ma'rur: At Ar-Rabadha I met Abu Dhar who was wearing a cloak, and his slave, too, was wearing a similar one. I asked about the reason for it. He replied, "I abused a person by calling his mother with bad names." The Prophet said to me, 'O Abu Dhar! Did you abuse him by calling his mother with bad names You still have some characteristics of ignorance. YOUR SLAVES ARE YOUR BROTHERS and Allah has put them under your command. So whoever has a brother under his command should feed him of what he eats and dress him of what he wears. DO NOT ASK THEM (SLAVES) TO DO THINGS BYEOND THEIR CAPACITY (POWER) AND IF YOU DO SO, then HELP THEM' "  (Book #2, Hadith #29)
    The book of hadith forbids Muslims to commit illegal sexual relationship with slaves.  Do you think Muslims could abuse slaves to force them to have illegal sexual relationship with them?
    Narrated 'Aisha : In the life-time of Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) the sun eclipsed, so he led the people in prayer, and stood up and performed a long Qiyam, then bowed for a long while. He stood up again and performed a long Qiyam but this time the period of standing was shorter than the first. He bowed again for a long time but shorter than the first one, then he prostrated and prolonged the prostration. He did the same in the second Raka as he did in the first and then finished the prayer; by then the sun (eclipse) had cleared. He delivered the Khutba (sermon) and after praising and glorifying Allah he said, "The sun and the moon are two signs against the signs of Allah; they do not eclipse on the death or life of anyone. So when you see the eclipse, remember Allah and say Takbir, pray and give Sadaqa." The Prophet then said, "O followers of Muhammad! By Allah! There is none who has more ghaira (self-respect) than Allah as HE HAS FORBIDDEN THAT HIS SLAVES, MALE OR FEMALE (ILLEGAL SEXUAL INTERCOURSE). O followers of Muhammad! By Allah! If you knew that which I know you would laugh little and weep much.  (Book #18, Hadith #154)
    The book of Hadith mentions that Allah is merciful only to those slaves who are merciful to others.  The following is the extract:
    Narrated Usama bin Zaid: The daughter of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) sent (a messenger) to the Prophet requesting him to come as her child was dying (or was gasping), but the Prophet returned the messenger and told him to convey his greeting to her and say: "Whatever Allah takes is for Him and whatever He gives, is for Him, and everything with Him has a limited fixed term (in this world) and so she should be patient and hope for Allah's reward." She again sent for him, swearing that he should come. The Prophet got up, and so did Sad bin 'Ubada, Muadh bin Jabal, Ubai bin Ka'b, Zaid bin Thabit and some other men. The child was brought to Allah's Apostle while his breath was disturbed in his chest (the sub-narrator thinks that Usama added: ) as if it was a leather water-skin. On that the eyes of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) started shedding tears. Sad said, "O Allah's Apostle! What is this?" He replied, "It is mercy which Allah has lodged in the hearts of His slaves, and Allah is merciful only to those of His slaves who are merciful (to others).  (Book #23, Hadith #373)
    The book of Hadith forbids Muslims to receive zakat from slaves:
    Narrated Abu Huraira :- The Prophet said,"There is no Zakat either on a slave or on a horse belonging to a Muslim.  (Book #24, Hadith #543)
    Allah forbids Muslims to sell slaves with price:
    Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Allah says, 'I will be against three persons on the Day of Resurrection: 1. One who makes a covenant in My Name, but he proves treacherous. 2. One who sells a free person (as a slave) and eats the price, 3. And one who employs a laborer and gets the full work done by him but does not pay him his wages.' "  (Book #34, Hadith #430)
    As the phrase, Allah says I will be against…, is mentioned in the book #34, hadith #430 with the phrase, One who sells a free person (as a slave) and eats the price, it forbids Muslims to trade slaves with a price.
    The book of hadith forbids to use slaves girls as prostitutes in order to earn money:
    Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet prohibited the earnings of slave girls (through prostitution).  (Book #36, Hadith #483)
    Both the book of Hadith & Quran demand Muslims to set slaves free:
    Narrated Asma' bint Abu Bakr: The Prophet ordered us to free slaves at the time of solar eclipses.  (Book #46, Hadith #695)
    Narrated Asma' bint Abu Bakr: We were ordered to free slaves at the time of lunar eclipses.  (Book #46, Hadith #696)
    (سورة المجادلة, Al-Mujaadila, Chapter #58, Verse #3)
    But those who divorce their wives by Zihar, then wish to go back on the words they uttered,- (It is ordained that such a one) should free a slave before they touch each other: Thus are ye admonished to perform: and Allah is well-acquainted with (all) that ye do.
    (سورة النور, An-Noor, Chapter #24, Verse #33)
    Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah gives them means out of His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing (to enable them to earn their freedom for a certain sum), give them such a deed if ye know any good in them: yea, give them something yourselves out of the means which Allah has given to you. But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is Allah, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them),
    (سورة المائدة, Al-Maaida, Chapter #5, Verse #89)
    Allah will not call you to account for what is futile in your oaths, but He will call you to account for your deliberate oaths: for expiation, feed ten indigent persons, on a scale of the average for the food of your families; or clothe them; or give a slave his freedom. If that is beyond your means, fast for three days. That is the expiation for the oaths ye have sworn. But keep to your oaths. Thus doth Allah make clear to you His signs, that ye may be grateful.

  • Does Quran support that women could only be able to have contact with Mahram and none else?  If Quran forbids women to travel except Mahram, women could not go to work except mahram were at the working place to accompany them. 
    Quran 28:25 supports the reverse since it mentions that there was a woman who walked shyly to speak to a stranger.  The following is the extract:
    (سورة القصص, Al-Qasas, Chapter #28, Verse #25)
     ‘Then there came to him one of the two women, walking shyly. She said: "Verily, my father calls you that he may reward you for having watered (our flocks) for us." So when he came to him and narrated the story, he said: "Fear you not. You have escaped from the people who are Zalimun (polytheists, disbelievers, and wrong-doers)."’
     The phrase, came to him…walking shyly, is mentioned in Quran 28:25 implies that that men that this woman approached to should not be her Mahram.  If this man was one of her Mahram, there was no reason why this woman should approach him shyly.  Thus, it refutes the custom practice that women could not speak to or shake hands to those who are not their Mahram.
     Sharia law does not allow women to travel alone except with Mahram.  The verse that Sharia law adopts to condemn women not to travel alone is extracted from the hadith verse below:
     ‘Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: The Prophet said, "A woman should not travel except with a Dhu-mahram (her husband or a man with whom that woman cannot marry at all according to the Islamic Jurisprudence), and no man may visit her except in the presence of a Dhu-mahram." A man got up and said, "O Allah's Apostle! I intend to go to such and such an army and my wife wants to perform Hajj." The Prophet said (to him), "Go along with her (to Hajj)."  (Book #29, Hadith #85)
     The book #29, Hadith #85 seems to restrict women entirely not to travel except with Mahram.  Yet other books of Hadith only restricts women for a certain period for them not to travel except with Mahram.  The following are the extract:
     Narrated Ibn 'Umar: The Prophet said, "A woman should not travel for more than three days except with a Dhi-mahram (i.e. a male with whom she cannot marry at all, e.g. her brother, father, grandfather, etc.) or her own husband.)"  (Book #20, Hadith #192)  The same is mentioned in the book #20, hadith #193.
     The phrase, A woman should not travel for more than three days except with a Dhi-mahram, in the book #20, Hadith #192 implies that the restriction of women to travel should be more than three days and it seemed to permit women to travel less than three days.
     The book #21, Hadith #288 reduces the restriction to two days instead of more than three days.  The following is the extract:
     Narrated Qaza'a Maula: (freed slave of) Ziyad: I heard Abu Said Al-khudri narrating four things from the Prophet and I appreciated them very much. He said, conveying the words of the Prophet. (1) "A woman should not go on a two day journey except with her husband or a Dhi-mahram. (2) No fasting is permissible on two days: 'Id-ul-Fitr and 'Id-ul-Adha. (3) No prayer after two prayers, i.e. after the Fajr prayer till the sunrises and after the 'Asr prayer till the sun sets. (4) Do not prepare yourself for a journey except to three Mosques, i.e. Al-Masjid-AI-Haram, the Mosque of Aqsa (Jerusalem) and my Mosque." (Book #21, Hadith #288)
     The book 20, Hadith #194 reduces the restriction to one day and night.  The following is the extract:
     Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, "It is not permissible for a woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day to travel for one day and night except with a mahram."  (Book #20, Hadith #194)
     The book #24, hadith #559 mentions that the Prophet met a woman in a garden and it gives the proof that women could travel alone without mahram.  The following is the extract:
     Narrated Abu Humaid As-Sa'idi We took part in the holy battle of Tabuk in the company of the Prophet and when we arrived at the Wadi-al-Qura, there was a woman in her garden. The Prophet asked his companions to estimate the amount of the fruits in the garden,  ...(Book #24, Hadith #559)
     For instance, if women are forbidden to travel alone except with Mahram, the woman as indicated in the book #24, hadith #559 should not be alone in garden and she should be with mahram.  As the book #24, hadith #559 mentions that that woman was alone in garden, it implies that hadith does not entirely forbid women to travel alone.
     The book #84, hadith #72 even mentions that a women was travelling on her camel alone.  The following is the extract:
     Narrated: Abu 'Abdur-Rahman and Hibban bin 'Atiyya had a dispute. Abu 'Abdur-Rahman said to Hibban, "You know what made your companions (i.e. Ali) dare to shed blood." Hibban said, "Come on! What is that?" 'Abdur-Rahman said, "Something I heard him saying." The other said, "What was it?" 'AbdurRahman said, "'Ali said, Allah's Apostle sent for me, Az-Zubair and Abu Marthad, and all of us were cavalry men, and said, 'Proceed to Raudat-Hajj (Abu Salama said that Abu 'Awana called it like this, i.e., Hajj where there is a woman carrying a letter from Hatib bin Abi Balta'a to the pagans (of Mecca). So bring that letter to me.' So we proceeded riding on our horses till we overtook her at the same place of which Allah's Apostle had told us. She was traveling on her camel… (Book #84, Hadith #72)
     The same is mentioned in the book #60, hadith #412 below:
     Narrated Ali: Allah's Apostle sent me along with AzZubair and Al-Miqdad and said, "Proceed till you reach a place called Raudat-Khakh where there is a lady travelling in a howda on a camel…. (Book #60, Hadith #412)
     Quran 60:10 permits women to travel alone without Mahram.  The following is the extract:
     (سورة الممتحنة, Al-Mumtahana, Chapter #60, Verse #10)-Mohsin Khan translation:
     O you who believe! When believing women come to you as emigrants, examine them; Allah knows best as to their Faith, then if you ascertain that they are true believers send them not back to the disbelievers. They are not lawful (wives) for the disbelievers nor are the disbelievers lawful (husbands) for them. But give them (the disbelievers) that (amount of money) which they have spent [as their Mahr] to them. And there will be no sin on you to marry them if you have paid their Mahr to them. Likewise hold not the disbelieving women as wives, and ask for (the return of) that which you have spent (as Mahr ) and let them (the disbelievers) ask back for that which they have spent. That is the Judgement of Allah, He judges between you. And Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.
     As the phrase, believing women come to you as emigrants, is mentioned in Quran 60:10, it implies that Quran does not forbid women to travel alone without mahram  since the phrase, come to you as emigrants, is mentioned in it.
     The same is mentioned in Quran 60:12 that believing women could come alone to the Prophet to give him the Bar’ah.  The following is the extract:
     (سورة الممتحنة, Al-Mumtahana, Chapter #60, Verse #12)
     ‘O Prophet! When believing women come to you to give you the Bai'ah (pledge), that they will not associate anything in worship with Allah, that they will not steal, that they will not commit illegal sexual intercourse, that they will not kill their children, that they will not utter slander, intentionally forging falsehood (i.e. by making illegal children belonging to their husbands), and that they will not disobey you in Ma'ruf (Islamic Monotheism and all that which Islam ordains), then accept their Bai'ah (pledge), and ask Allah to forgive them. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.’
     From the above Quranic and Hadith verses, it could come to the conclusion that Quran and Hadith do not forbid women to travel alone.  The reason why some of the hadith verses forbid women to travel could be due to the danger of the attack from non-Muslims since non-Muslims in the past were violent.  The reason why some hadith varied the period to be one day or two days or three days that women had to accompany with mahram should be dependent upon the place where they travel whether they could be more violent non-Muslims there.  If there were less non-violent non-Muslims there, women could travel longer times without mahram, and vice versa.  As non-Muslims in this contemporary world are not violent and would live harmony with Muslims, those verses in hadith that restrict women not to travel alone except with Mahram could not be applicable to this world.  Thus, women could travel to work without mahram in this modern world.

  • Sharia law supports that it is obligatory for a woman to let her husband have sex with her immediately when he ask her and she can physically endure it. (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #34)-Mohsin Khan translation: ‘Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allah and to their husbands), and guard in the husband's absence what Allah orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband's property). As to those women on whose part you see ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allah is Ever Most High, Most Great.’ As the phrase, beat them lightly, is mentioned in Quran 4:34 with the phrase, women…ill-conduct, it implies that Quran only permits light beating if women refuse to share their beds. However, the light beating should not cause them to have severe injuries since Quran 85:10 forbids. The following is the extract: (سورة البروج, Al-Burooj, Chapter #85, Verse #10)-Mohsin Khan translation: ‘Verily, those who put into trial the believing men and believing women (by torturing them and burning them), and then do not turn in repentance (to Allah), then they will have the torment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire.’ Even though men could beat women lightly to call them to share the beds, they could seek term of peace with their husbands to prevent cruelty or desertion from their husbands. (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #128)-Mohsin Khan translation: ‘And if a woman fears cruelty or desertion on her husband's part, there is no sin on them both if they make terms of peace between themselves; and making peace is better. And human inner-selves are swayed by greed. But if you do good and keep away from evil, verily, Allah is Ever Well-Acquainted with what you do.’ Could men exert force upon wives to share the beds? Quran 4:19 seems to forbid force upon women since it has to come from their will. (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #19)-Mohsin Khan translation: O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will; and you should not treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the Mahr you have given them, unless they commit open illegal sexual intercourse; and live with them honourably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings through it a great deal of good.
    By zuma - 5/26/2017 9:29:43 AM



  • Muhamad Yunus,
    According to Quran 4:34, the righteous women are devoutly obedient to Allah as well as husbands.  Quran 4:34 is related to the relationship to be established between husbands and wives in families and it has nothing to do with whether women could be granted with the opportunity to govern nations since the word, husbands, in Quran 4:34 by its word should refer to family relationship.  In a family, according to Quran 4:34, Allah should be the head of husband as well as wife and that the righteous women should be obedient to husbands since the phrase, men are the protectors and maintainers of women, is mentioned.  It is irrational to use Quran 4:34 to condemn women could never have the chance to be rulers of nations since Quran 4:34 is merely meant to explain the relationship between husbands and wives in families and that women are to be subjected to husbands within families and it has nothing to do with whether women could have the chance to become rulers of nations.   The word, husbands, in Quran 4:34 gives a clear cut that it should refer to men as husbands in families instead of husbands of nations.  The following is the extract:
    (سورة النساء, An-Nisaa, Chapter #4, Verse #34)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allah and to their husbands), and guard in the husband's absence what Allah orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband's property). As to those women on whose part you see ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allah is Ever Most High, Most Great.’
    If all the women have to be condemned that they could never have the chance to be rulers of nations, why should Quran 24:55 mention that Allah has promised those among you who believe and do righteous deeds will be granted with the succession to rulers?  As the phrase, Allah has promised, is mentioned in Quran 24:55 with the phrase, those among you who believe and do righteous deeds…to rulers, it implies that Allah does not condemn women not to be granted with the opportunity to be the rulers of nations.  As the phrase, Allah has promised, is mentioned in Quran 24:55, it implies that Allah is the one to give promise and is still above female rulers as well as those people that are under the rulers.  The following is the extract:
    (سورة النور, An-Noor, Chapter #24, Verse #55)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘Allah has promised those among you who believe and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the land, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieves after this, they are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).

  • Sharia law supports that a woman has no right to custody of her children from a previous marriage when she remarries and yet Quran mentions the reverse. (سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #233)-Mohsin Khan translation: ‘The mothers shall give suck to their children for two whole years, (that is) for those (parents) who desire to complete the term of suckling, but the father of the child shall bear the cost of the mother's food and clothing on a reasonable basis.

    No person shall have a burden laid on him greater than he can bear. No mother shall be treated unfairly on account of her child, nor father on account of his child. And on the (father's) heir is incumbent the like of that (which was incumbent on the father). If they both decide on weaning, by mutual consent, and after due consultation, there is no sin on them. And if you decide on a foster suckling-mother for your children, there is no sin on you, provided you pay (the mother) what you agreed (to give her) on reasonable basis.

    And fear Allah and know that Allah is All-Seer of what you do.’ As the phrase, No mother shall be treated unfairly on account of her child, is mentioned in Quran 2:233, it implies that a woman could have the right to custody of her children from her previous marriage since she was the one who gave birth to them and they should treat her fairly.

  • Sharia law supports that a Muslim woman may not marry a non-Muslim man (Quran 2:221).  An untranslated portion of the Sharia even forbids an Arab woman from marrying a non-Arab man.
    (سورة البقرة, Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #221)-Mohsin Khan translation:
    ‘And do not marry Al-Mushrikat (idolatresses, etc.) till they believe (worship Allah Alone). And indeed a slave woman who believes is better than a (free) Mushrikah (idolatress), even though she pleases you. And give not (your daughters) in marriage to Al-Mushrikun till they believe (in Allah Alone) and verily, a believing slave is better than a (free) Mushrik (idolater), even though he pleases you. Those (Al-Mushrikun) invite you to the Fire, but Allah invites (you) to Paradise and Forgiveness by His Leave, and makes His Ayat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) clear to mankind that they may remember.’
    As the phrase, till they believe (worship Allah Alone), is mentioned in Quran 2:221, it implies that Quran permits the marriage as long as that person has believed in Allah and this should include Jews, Sabians, Christians who believe in Allah.

  • Ashok Sharma,

    Nothing is mentioned in Quran and Hadith about Cyber security, telecom, traffic. since Quran and Hadith is meant originally and purely for spiritual enhancement.  They are not to be meant for any scientific research or whatever.  

    If you want to debate about science, you should pursue science course instead of doing scientific research in the book of Quran and Hadith.
