Aspects of Child Abuse in Islam

E-mail Print PDF
Childhood DeniedMuslims are not the only people who pass on their religious beliefs to their children; this is a standard practice all over the world.  But Islam is a very demanding religion even to adults and assumes total control of its adherents’ lives. The mass immigration of Muslims to the western countries resulted in the current situation where millions of Muslim children live in the west and their number is bound to increase. This situation creates a dilemma, to which the west is either oblivious or in denial, because Muslim children are entitled to the full protection of the western laws but at the same time have to abide by the Islamic law.  This article will shed some light on some practices that are forced on the Muslim children living in the west, which normally would be considered as some form of child abuse. 
 
Definition of a child
The transition between childhood and adulthood is a gradual process and is associated with both intellectual and sexual maturity. The medical profession, as I am told, considers childhood to extend up to the age of sixteen years. However, the demarcation line between childhood and adulthood remains slightly different among various countries of the world. In most of the western world, children are considered to have reached their adulthood at the age of 18 years. In Islam, the separation line between childhood and adulthood is based on sexual maturity. 
 
In general, boys are considered to have reached adulthood when they grow pubic hair or show other signs of sexual maturity. In the case of girls, it is the experience of the first menstruation that is considered to signal they have reached their adulthood. When Mohammed committed his mass murder against the Jewish tribe of Bani Child MarriageQurayza by killing all the male adults and taking the rest as slaves, he used the appearance of pubic hair on boys as a sign of adulthood.
 
According to western standards, or any civilized standard, Mohammed’s marriage to Aysha and having sex with her at the age of nine years is a crime called paedophilia. However, Muslims call it an ordinary marriage and justify it on the supposition that girls in hot countries tend to reach sexual maturity faster than in cold countries. Muslims assume, without any evidence, that Aysha had a menstruation before her marriage and conclude that Mohammed had sex with an adult aged nine years! This justification by Muslims is an indication of how they understand maturity; simply it is sexual maturity and has nothing to do with the mind.   

The Islamic definition of maturity means that many children as young as nine years may start to be treated as adults just because, in the example of girls, their menstrual cycles started early. Reaching adulthood is an important turning point in the lives of those children and involves fundamental changes in all aspects of their lives because it affects their religious duties such as performing prayers and fasting.

1.    Indoctrination  
Muslims teach their children about hell the Satan and paradise from the moment they start to communicate with Muslim Brain-washingthem. These teachings are used as a means to discipline children and encourage them to be obedient to their parents. One of the first words Arab children learn is ‘haram’ meaning forbidden by allah; indeed it is one of the most commonly used words by the Arabs. From my own experience, the peril of being burnt in hell fire was a real nightmare and an intimidation tool used by my elder relatives to make me listen to them, eat my food, wash my hands, do work, stop playing or go to bed.

As a child, I had a troubling feeling of guilt because I appeared to be doing wrong things most of the time. I had to struggle to suppress my worries that, unless I work very hard for the rest of my life, my ‘hasanat’ (good doings) vs ‘sayaat’ (sins) balance may send me to hell. I was not the only child to have concerns; other children had similar qualms which we occasionally discussed with each other! Childhood is about playing and having fun with no worries whatsoever. However, Muslim children, even from the preschool age, have a great deal to worry about in this life and the afterlife. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised when I figured out that children do not go to hell anyway, but that was a little too late for me because I had already grown up.

One of the most irrational things a Muslim child has to do is to read the Quran by heart.  I consider myself to be lucky because in my days we were only expected to read a few pages from the Quran albeit they were the last pages which are in the difficult Meccan style language. Nowadays, thanks to the resurgence of Islamic awareness, children are increasingly required to read the whole Quran by heart! Memorizing an entire book, often in a foreign language and without understanding it, affects the child’s abilities to comprehend anything else. This memorizing practice says it all about the Muslims intellectual reasoning- read everything but understand nothing.

2.    Ibadat: Prayers and Fasting
In theory, all ibadat like prayers and fasting are obligatory only to mature Muslims. However, parents are required, not only to teach, but also to force their children to perform those ibadat.Praying According to Bukhari and Muslim and all other hadith books, Mohammed’s orders are crystal clear: “teach your children how to pray from the age of seven, and beat them (if they don’t do it well) at the age of ten”.

Fortunately for me, my parents were not that keen and they did not beat me at all.  However, an increasing number of Muslim parents nowadays do beat their children if they don’t pray. Only a few months ago, I heard of a Muslim professional, with high level of education and good social standing, who was applying the above Islamic rule on all his children and was caught only when his eleven- year-old son suffered from serious injuries. The real shock, however, is that he is not alone, all strict Muslims would not hesitate to do it and they get away with it.

Young Muslim children in western schools perform prayers and do fasting, which can harm them. The schools do not only allow the children to suffer because of this practice but they also encourage it by providing the special time and special facilities. Soon, the fasting month of Ramadan will fall in the summer months with its long days, in some countries that means about eighteen hours of starvation! I know a Muslim who performs all five daily prayers in the mosque, which is about twenty minutes drive, he wakes up early in the morning to start his journey to the mosque, accompanied by his 14 years old son!

Do the western child protection organizations have the courage to protect these children from such suffering?

3.    Child play
Muslim children are not allowed to join the others and enjoy the fun of playing with dolls or figures because Islam prohibits images of humans or animals. They are not allowed to watch popular children cartoons like the notorious Micky mouse, against which many fatwas have been issued. In Saudi Arabia, they discourage children from committing the sin of painting human or animal figures unless they draw a line across the neck as a sign that the figure has no life in it!

4.    Hijab and the Islamic outfit  
Muslim women suffer because of Hijab although they wouldn’t admit it. It is a religious stigma that tells the others everything about her beliefs without even talking to her and works like a declaration that the bearer has to be treated differently. Hijab and Islamic dress produces an isolated and psychologically traumatized woman because it denies women their own feminine instincts of showing their hair and beauty.
Hijab Torture
It is common to see young Muslim girls with hijab and full Islamic outfit even in the primary schools. Those young children suffer unconsciously because of their Islamic dress. They become aware of their sexuality from an early age and look at the other males as sexual predators.  In addition to the psychological damage, the Islamic dress is an unhealthy dress. During the summer months, hijab and the rest of the Islamic dress are uncomfortable and can become embarrassingly smelly because of the excessive sweating. Recently, there have been many reports about the high incidence of the bone disease (rickets) in Muslim women because of their lack of exposure to sunlight which is essential to produce vitamin D, the lack of which causes bone disease.

5.    Violence and Suicide bombing
Muslim children are indoctrinated to . They are regularly fed on the horrific and disturbing scenes of injuries, blood and death that even adults cannot watch.   These children have learned Quranic verse 2:120 that tells them all about this secret world conspiracy: “.. the Jews and the Christians will never be happy about you unless you follow them...”

Having told the Muslims that everyone in the world hates them, the Quran now emphasises in a number of places that Muslims must never trust or befriend the others, like this verse 4:89 “ ....take them and kill them wherever you find them and choose no friends or helpers from them..”

The Quran repeats its orders in a dozen of places; the message is important and clear: never trust the unbelievers no matter how nice they may appear to you, even if they were close family members. Verse 9:23 leaves no doubt about the gravity of this message of hate “...O believers, do not take your fathers or brothers as allies and friends if they prefer to disbelieve ..”

Do not befriend your father or brothers! So much for the family values in Islam.

Muslim children are indoctrinated from an early stage to aspire to become martyrs and have been used as suicide bombers. Hamas has pioneered the practice of using young children as frotHE WHOLE WORLD IS AGAINST mUSLIMSntline soldiers during the Palestinian intifada. The human instinct is to protect children during conflicts and wars but the Islamists have reversed this natural human reaction by pushing children to the front lines armed with stones, and sometimes explosive belts, to kill and be killed.

The shia Muslims mourn the death of Al Imam Al Hussain on ashoura day by going to the streets and start beating their chests. They use tools such as knives and swords to self inflict injuries and cause bloodshed, the scenes of blood and sufferings are not for the weak hearted. Shia children do not only see all this but sometimes they are also made to participate in it.    

6.    Child Abduction
Muslims’ marriages to non Muslims are always fragile marriages because they are built on lies. Most of these relations tend to involve North African or Asian Muslims. Of course, it is always a Muslim husband and a non Muslim wife, because it cannot happen the other way round. Also it is almost always a dark skinned Muslim who marries a white woman, because those Muslims consider white skin on a woman as a sign of beauty. Muslim families may love to see one of their sons bringing home a white European woman; this is often seen as a goKarin's Story od achievement. In theory, the non Muslim wife can keep her religion but her children must be raised as Muslims. In any case there is usually tremendous pressure on her to convert sooner rather than later. Conversion makes it easier for the family to tame a stranger woman with a different culture. The typical scenario involves projecting Islam as a religion of peace and good family values that is based on the Quran, which is the unchanged words of Allah. The Quran is described to her as a book of amazing miracles and language beauty but it is a misfortune that she doesn’t speak the language to enjoy all those wonderful beauties!     
 
A converted wife is easier to adapt to Muslims’ culture and easier to control using her new religion as a means of discipline. A converted woman soon discovers the lies and the marriage falls apart, which reflects badly on the children because they must be separated from their mother. The Islamic law very strictly ‘protects’ children from being raised by infidels and requires their separation from their mothers. This is a tragedy that is happening everyday all over the world.
   
The above are only some of the Islamic practices that would normally provoke outrage in the west and described as child abuse. The western countries have already accepted those children in their countries and are under moral obligation to protect them from the practices of Islam. The alternative is to raise children with a jaundiced view of the world who may grow up only to become suicide bombers.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
