Stop Islamic schools – the abuse and inferiority of females (Part 1).

Monday, 01 November 2010 00:50 Circe Confronting Islam - Infidel Resistance

In an article in the Whittlesea Leader  (5/10/10) about the Muslim school proposed for Mernda, the principal of Al Siraat, a Muslim school at Epping claimed the only difference between a Muslim school and other schools is that Muslim schools teach Arabic, Islamic studies and Koran reading. 

But teaching Islam and the Koran makes Islamic schools totally different to ALL other schools because the Koran, hadith, sira and sharia which must be taught to understand Islam and its ceremonies and day-today practices, is filled with attitudes, acts and laws that are totally alien and contrary to our values and laws and which threaten the lives and freedoms of others and teach treason to our government.  The article was titled ‘All about learning’ and we should be very concerned regarding the Islamic attitudes and practices pushed onto impressionable children in Islamic schools.  I summarise some of these in two articles – Part 1 examines the abuse of females and Islam’s gender apartheid and part 2, Islam’s racial and religious hatred, violence and totalitarianism.

How do you live in harmony when you allow children to be brainwashed into Islam which demands White Arab Islamic supremacy, not multicultural equality and harmony and threatens all non-Muslims with violence, death, forced conversion, slavery or at the very least subjugation into dhimmitude under repressive Islamic laws.   How do we have gender equality when the abuse of females under Islam is massive and utterly contrary to our values and laws?  Islam  is also extremely racist with a strong hatred of black people and others yet those who oppose its deadly ideology are called ‘racist’ –Islam is NOT a race!  How can we feel safe and preserve our culture when Islam is a totalitarian, apartheid political ideology that demands all Muslims work until the religion, government and law is ALL Islamic!

Those who oppose the school have received the usual accusations ---intolerant, ignorant etc and are told to be ‘multicultural and all live in harmony.’  Such comments reveal the still widespread ignorance of the true text and nature of Islam yet even a brief look around the Islamic world reveals the massive abuse of girls and women and the elimination of, or violence and repression towards all non-Muslims.   This occurs regardless of the underlying ‘culture’ because it is the ‘culture’ of Islam which supplants all else and we already see this occurring here. 

The two articles will look at some of the unacceptable text and laws of Islam which make ALL Islamic schools dangerous for the future of the Australia we know and love but before doing this I will note some points about Mernda-

Mernda is in Victoria on the outskirts of the metropolitan area, north and slightly east of Melbourne.  It is NOT a Muslim community so one might wonder why a Muslim school is proposed here ---another example of Islam forcing itself onto non-Muslim communities?  In my travels I have actually been to the site of the proposed school and was staggered that it was even contemplated as the block is small and will only have access through small suburban streets.   The increased traffic involved in bringing in Muslim students will not only cause traffic problems and noise but is a SAFETY risk to other children heading to their local schools.   There is no suitable spot for significant car parking and who wants their lovely new home to be next to a car park if the limited free space is used for such purposes.  This would destroy the value and amenity of homes.  I was informed that there is no intention by those involved with the church next door to sell any land or buildings to the Muslims.  Likewise neighbours have no intention of selling land (zoned for housing) so it seems obvious that simply from a planning point of view, giving consideration to the safety and amenity of others already living in the area coupled with the limited area available and access problems, that the school cannot go ahead.  A past small school was closed due to the unsuitability of this ‘heritage’ listed site.

But, of course councils are terrified of being called ‘racist’ (Islam is NOT a race) or intolerant etc and hence are frightened to decide against an Islamic school even when reason dictates it is the correct decision.  

Councils also seem to neglect the wishes of others who don’t want Islam forced on them.   ExMuslims and those who have fled Islamic violence elsewhere as well as others who know the teachings of Islam seek to live away from Muslims yet Muslims, rather than build schools in areas with significant Muslim populations, constantly force schools and mosques into other areas as a means of seeding Islam and claiming territory (conquest) everywhere. 

Muslims try to become ‘victims’ by pretending the debate is just nasty bigotry but as the text below reveals, there are very sound ‘protection of the child,’ social and political reasons Stop ALL Islamic schools.

I thank the person who sent me the information on Mernda from their local paper as it triggered these two articles which dare to ask – should we STOP ALL ISLAMIC SCHOOLS?   Is the teaching of Islam to young children in schools creating a dangerous, alien, parallel society that fundamentally threatens our too tolerant Australia?

There is an old saying –‘you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear’   and this applies to Islam .  The fundamental texts, example of Mohammad and laws of Islam are horrifying particularly for girls/women, and others (infidels, dhimmis, slaves) and no amount of massaging can change this.  

Below I list just some aspects of Islam from the Koran (the literal truth from allah), supported in hadiths, sira and laws which are morally correct under Islam yet to us and I suggest all civilised people, they are morally repugnant.  

Male superiority and abuse of females:
1)  Men are superior:  this is reinforced in endless ways in the text-(and laws!!)
a) Men excel women

*Koran 2.228, Divorced women shall wait concerning themselves for three monthly periods..... And women shall have rights similar to the rights against them, according to what is equitable; but men have a degree (of advantage) over them. And Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.

Watch the words ‘similar’ and ‘equitable’ which can mean something very different in Islam!

*Koran 4.34 : Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.

Remember females ‘pay’ for that ‘support’ by being constantly available to satisfy hubby. (Scourge =whip, lash, beat)

b)  Only Men receive religious text or are messengers:
Several koranic verses eg *suras 12.109;   16.43;   22.75 tells us that only men (or angels) are allah’s messengers.

c)  Men love to purify themselves: according to *Koran sura  9.108 ...and allah loves those who make themselves ‘pure.’

Are women unclean or spiritually inferior –YES according to lots of text!  Women are segregated to the back or side of the mosque and cannot enter through the main, front door or lead prayer and are not required for Friday prayers.  Her menstruation bars her from religious acts ie they are deficient in religion as Mohammad notes in several hadith.

d) Men are superior at worshipping allah  eg *Koran sura 24.37

e) Men are true to their covenant—in *Koran sura 33:23    Women don’t get a mention.

f)  Plenty of perfect men—almost no  perfect women.   Remember, allah determines your entire life so allah makes women imperfect!

*Bukhari Volume 4, Book 55, Number 623:    Narrated Abu Musa: Allah's Apostle said, "Many amongst men reached (the level of) perfection but none amongst the women reached this level except Asia, Pharaoh's wife, and Mary, the daughter(?) of 'Imran. And no doubt, the superiority of 'Aisa? to other women is like the superiority of Tharid (i.e. a meat and bread dish) to other meals."

(Repeated in 4.55.643, also 5.57.113, also 7.65.329 ie this text is often repeated in the most authoritative book of hadiths making it very important!!! Also in *Muslim Book 31,Number 5966 etc):

g)  Men are like gods to be bowed down to:

*Abu Dawud Book 11, Number 2135  (Mohammad said) ..... If I were to command anyone to make prostration before another I would command women to prostrate themselves before their husbands, because of the special right over them given to husbands by Allah.

And females:

2)  Paedophilia-The Koran states in *sura 33.49 that no iddat (waiting period between divorce from one man before the female can marry another) is necessary if there has been NO sex but in *sura 65.4 an  iddat is set  for prepubescent girls clearly imply that it is OK to  have sex with them.  In the hadith, Mohammad states ‘the iddat for the girl before puberty is 3 months’ (*Bukhari Vol 7 Book 62 No. 63)

"Therefore, making mention of the waiting-period for girls who have not yet menstruated, clearly proves that it is not only permissible to give away the girl at this age but it is permissible for the husband to consummate marriage with her. Now, obviously no Muslim has the right to forbid a thing which the Qur’an has held as permissible."

(Maududi, volume 5, p. 620, note 13,   6 volume commentary on koran - -Muslim, 20th century commentator)

Not only does the Koran OK paedophilia but a wealth of text in the hadith plus sira show that paedophilia was practised particularly by that ‘perfect example’ Mohammad.   Western Muslims embarrassed by Mohammad’s sex with a tiny child who describes herself as prepubescent (*Bukhari Vol 7 Book 62 No. 163) try every lie and contortion to hide this fact but there is a large body of text detailing Mohammad’s marriage and sex with tiny Aisha, and further text clearly proving that she was indeed a child.

Islamic law fully endorses the marriage of even the tiniest child.  Guardians can marry off a prepubescent child to whomever they like (Reliance of the Traveller: Shafii school –Law m8.2  p533 for prepubescent children and guardians can marry off their virgin daughters of any age without their consent - law m 3.13 p522.) 
The Hedaya (Hanafi school) allows men to marry suckling babies - Vol. I Book III, page 71 (Ref. 6).

Little girls today are married off across the Islamic world.  Such a practice is endorsed by Saudi Arabia’s senior cleric or Mufti (Daily Mail reporter 09).  A Muslim marriage officiant announced on Lebanese TV that girls as young as ONE could be married but claimed her readiness for sex would vary with the environment and tradition!! (FoxNews 2008).

In Britain’s most moderate mosques –you know, the ones extolling peace, interfaith etc on the outside  --yet teaching something very different inside, paedophilia is endorsed thanks to Mohammad’s example.   Watch Undercover Mosque (    -note part 2) where you will hear with regard to marrying pre-pubescent girls—‘We know the Prophet Mohammad practised it.  It wasn’t abuse or exploitation.  It was marriage’   Remember, these are the most ‘moderate’ mosques!

In the west eg Britain, it was noticed that girls went missing from state schools –and efforts to trace them found some had been married off, often sent overseas –no, not all were Muslim but most came from Muslim areas and ended up in Muslim countries (BBCNews 2008).  Would a Muslim school even care as child marriage is OK under Islam?
A NZ video reports the rape and marriage of young mainly Muslim girls (

Paedophilia and forced marriage is against Australia’s LAW and values.  (See text in articles 'Massive worldwide paedophile ring untouched' - 11/04/08, 'Child marriage-Mohammad’s exemplary example' - 08/11/07, 'Islam & Child marriage' - 22/05/07 and many more this site)

3)  plough women like fields –In *Koran sura 2.223 women are described as a man’s tilth (field) which he can ‘plough’ (go  into) as he wishes.  In the hadith eg *Abu Dawud Book 11, Number 2159 a woman complained to Mohammad of the way her husband used her and Mohammad responded by ‘revealing’ sura 2.223!  Laws give the man the full right to enjoy his wife’s person (body) eg Reliance of the Traveller: Law m5.4  p 526.  Tough luck for her wishes!

Again a wealth of text in the hadith and further laws demand females be constantly available for sex and threaten punishments if she does not comply eg *Bukhari:Volume 7, Book 62, Number 173), even if tanning leather (*Muslim Book 8, No. 3240) or baking bread (*Tirmidi 109 -ALIM CD ROM) etc!!

Text forbids females from abandoning their husband’s bed eg  Muslim hadith:Chapter 20: It is not permissible for a woman to abandon the bed of her husband; *Muslim Book 8, Number 3367:  (Repeated in 3366, 3367, 3368….) *Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, No. 122 and *Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, No. 460 etc.  Allah is displeased and the angels curse her.

Islamic law demands the ‘wife’ allow the husband to have sex with her immediately when he asks –eg Reliance of the Traveller Law m5.1 p 525.   Law m 11.9 p 545 states ‘The husband is only obliged to support his wife when she gives herself to him or offers to, meaning she allows him full enjoyment of her person and does not refuse him sex at any time of the day or night.’ 

There is no rape in an Islamic marriage because the husband has the right to the wife’s body.  She does not own or control her own body and hubby has complete access once he pays the Mahr/dower to her (*Koran 4.4) or her guardian–even though the dower may in fact be nothing or a handful of dates etc! 

Such an attitude is vile and contrary to our values of a female’s equality and ownership of her own person, and to our laws.  Yet this attitude is further displayed in Islam’s paradise! 

4)  Polygamy:  Legal promiscuity for Muslim men and instant divorce for men only.   *Koran sura 4.3 gives men the right to marry up to 4 wives and to have sex with as many females ‘on their right hand’ (slaves, concubines) as they can eg *Koran suras 4.24;  23.1-7;  70.29-30;  33.50.   Mohammad was given special permission for even more in sura 33.50-51.   Following the death of his first, wealthy, older wife, Mohammad is said to have had 21-28 wives in the last 10 years.  Text tells us he had 9 wives at once (*Bukhari Vol 7 Book 62 No. 6) and 11 wives at once (*Bukhari Vol 1 Book 5 No. 268).   A series of laws eg Reliance of the Traveller Law m 10.1 p 538 – m 10.12  p 541 for example deals with  handling the multiple wives including beating/hitting those who show signs of rebellion.
Females face death if they step outside their one husband!

Men are free to divorce women by uttering a few words but may provide shelter during the iddat if he doesn’t fully divorce her and might take her back or until she gives birth and weans the child or he gets a nurse.  Women cannot just utter a few words and divorce their husband –indeed she needs extreme circumstances or has to pay him if he agrees to a divorce!

*Koran sura 2.229 ‘the divorce is twice, after that either you retain her on reasonable terms or release her with kindness ....she can return the mahr

*Koran sura 2.230  So if a husband divorces his wife (irrevocably-the third time), He cannot, after that, re-marry her until after she has married another husband and He has divorced her. …


Women have no say in whether they are taken back during the iddat period or irrevocably divorced. 
Islam’s polygyny and ‘right to plough females’ reduces females to nothing but personal prostitutes and breeding cows for Muslim men who can fling them out at any time –the result is social dysfunction (see Islam’s Polygyny: Social dysfunction - 07-07-08 this site).
This is contrary to our laws and our ideal of the equality of males and females and marriage as a stable partnership.

5)  Beat women:   *Koran sura 4.34 tells men to beat (more accurately scourge meaning to whip or lash) disobedient wives.  Mohammad hit child wife Aisha hard in the chest --*Muslim Book 4, Number 2127.  He allowed his wives to be slapped in his presence -*Muslim Book 9, No 3506 and watched a young slave girl get beaten in front of him - *sira in ”  Ishaq:  p 496 .   He had his female slaves flogged eg *Abu-Dawud Book 38, Number 4458:   
Mohammad says ‘treat women with kindness....they are like prisoners ..and BEAT them for misbehaviour ’ (*Tirmidhi 104   ALIMCDRom, sira by Ibn Ishaq p 651)     

Mohammad tells men to beat their wives and over-rides any instructions not to beat eg *Abu-Dawud Book 11, No. 2141:  Mohammad says men won’t be asked why they beat their wives eg *Abu Dawud  Book 11, No. 2142:   

Aisha says she has never seen women suffer more than the ‘believing’ women:

*Bukhari Volume 7, Book 72, Number 715:   .......It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah's Apostle came, 'Aisha said, "I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!" ....

As stated above laws allow men to beat or hit females eg Reliance of the Traveller:  Law m 10.12 p 541  where obeying a man is ‘religiously obligatory’ so not doing so, including refusing sex, or even answering coldly can result in corporal punishment.

Beat children:
It is also concerning that Mohammad and Islam’s laws say to beat children/boys from the age of 10 if they don’t pray-eg *Abu Dawud Book 2, N0. 494: *Abu Dawud Book 2, No. 495

Reliance of the Traveller:   Law F1.2    p109   When a child with discrimination  is seven years of age, he is ordered to perform the prayer, and when 10 is beaten for neglecting it (N: not severely, but so as to discipline the child, and not more than 3 blows! –this is a comment from a sheik –not part of the original law)

Needless to say such violence against women and children is against our law.
Re women - Mohammad also endorsed and/or practiced the rape of slaves, assassinations, stoning, amputations and flogging (see text in Tariq Ramadan lied about Mohammad’s violence to females. Part 1 - (22-08-10), Tariq Ramadan lied about Mohammad’s violence to females. Part 2 - (26-08-10),  Mohammad struck child wife Aisha HARD - (04-04-09) and more.

6)  Women are full of guile, polluting, deceitful ...
Guile (insidious cunning, deceitfulness, treachery..), and sexual immorality etc is attributed to women and intrinsic to their nature eg *Koran  12.22-34.... This is of your woman's guile: surely your guile is great...      

If you (male) have been to the toilet or had contact with women, you must wash eg *Koran sura 4.43 and sura 5.6.

And *Koran sura 16.92 states. ‘be not like her who undoes the thread which she has spun, after it has become strong, by taking your oaths as a means of deception among yourselves.......’

Mohammad said women populate hell because they are ungrateful, curse, and are the most deficient in intelligence and religion. Eg *Bukhari Vol 1 Book 6 No. 301; *Bukhari Vol 2 Book 24 No. 541; *Bukhari Vol 2 Book 18 No. 161; *Bukhari Vol 7 Book 62 No. 124.    On undercover mosque you can hear the same with the claim that even if the woman has a PhD she is still inferior!

Mohammad claimed women come and go in the shape of devils *Muslim Book 8 No. 3240.
Women are evil, or evil omens, or  evil like Eve eg *Abu Dawud Book 11 No. 2155; * Bukhari Vol 4 Book 52  Nos 110 and 111 and masses more throughout the various sets of hadith (evil omens); and evil like Eve eg *Bukhari Vol 4 Book 55 No. 611; *Muslim Book 8 Nos 3471 and 3472 etc. 
Women are crooked eg *Bukhari Bukhari Vol 7 Book 62 No. 114; *Muslim Book 8 No. 3466.

The sura 16.97 may say the righteous will be rewarded but clearly women rarely make it to this level.

7)  Women are worth less in so many ways in the Koran –and other text and laws.
a) They receive less inheritance –Inheritance is mentioned in *suras 4.7-8 which simply mentions money can be left and in *Koran suras 4.11, 4.12 and 4.176 where males (sons, husbands..) always get more –at least double –what females receive.  Multiple wives share the amount designated for 1 wife –ie if ¼ for the ‘wife’ then they share this receiving 1/16 each.

One of  Mohammad’s wives complained about the fact that women didn’t share in the booty and now  received less inheritance --*Umme Salmah (RA) said: "O Messenger of Allâh! The men wage Jihad [can collect booty] whereas we (women) do not and we receive half the inheritance." (i.e. blood-brothers receive double the share of blood sisters etc). Thereafter this, the verse "And do not covet.... 4.32 " was revealed.” (Ibn Katheer vl.1, pg.498)

Remember Mohammad and his men attacked trade caravans and many tribes taking and selling their women and children and ‘confiscating’ all their goods and land so they had plenty of ‘booty’  so why were women given less inheritance forever?  Muslims claim it’s because men support women or men develop the family wealth but as others can also inherit from outside the immediate family –why can’t females inherit equally?  Others claim women can keep their own money but in Mohammad’s day and the Middle-east today women had little opportunity to gain an ‘income’ and they could be booted out at any time with nothing.  Also women had to provide many things for themselves as Sharia Law stipulates the few things the male had to provide IF she provided him with sex eg roof over her head (which he owns), a set amount of food, a set of clothes for summer and winter  eg Reliance of the Traveller Laws m 11.0-8 p 542Law m11.4  p 544 says he doesn’t need to pay for cosmetics, doctors fees, medicine etc UNLESS associated with childbirth!  Law  m11.7 p 544 says if she wears out the clothing supplied before the end of the season, he doesn’t need to supply more!  I’m sure you can see that the Muslim marriage is a commercial arrangement where she gives him sex etc and he is required to provide a designated level of ‘support.’

Muslims brag of their inheritance for women but in fact Mohammad stopped women from EVER inheriting equally with males and this is now sharia law ensuring women’s inferiority and restricted wealth forever.

In the PRE-Islamic pagan/Christian society of Mecca, Mohammad’s first wife Khadija inherited considerable wealth from her second husband and had authority over men and status and power which Mohammad ensured Muslim women would NEVER have!   Ancient Jewish marriage contracts (pre-Islam) show that Jewish women could inherit half the husband’s wealth prior to the payment of debts on DIVORCE or DEATH of the husband.  Muslim women get nothing on divorce.

In ancient Egypt women could inherit from their husband and throughout history, women have inherited or had money bestowed on them in greater and lesser amounts depending on the society and status of the female but in all other cases the system has been able to EVOLVE.  In the 12th century the very powerful Eleanor of Aquitaine inherited Aquitaine (a substantial region of SW France) from her father.  Some societies developed as matriarchies.   Today in Israel and the west women have equality across wide areas of society in ways that will NEVER be possible in Islam because Islam’s text and law forbid them.

b)  Their word is worth less than a male’s – women ‘forget’ 

*Koran 2.282  And call in to witness two witnesses, men; or if the two be not men, then one man and two women, such witness as you approve of, that if one woman errs the other will remind her."

In practice a women’s word (or the word of multiple women) never over-rides a man’s and is not acceptable at all unless supported by male witnesses in certain cases eg rape.
While a female may defend herself against accusations by a male unsupported by witnesses eg *Koran sura 24.6  she can still lose her dowry or  maintenance  and a woman does NOT have the right to charge her husband!!!

In *Koran sura 4.15 we find, If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of 4 witnesses from amongst you, and if these bear witness, then keep the women in houses until death releases them, or god shall make for them a way. 

c) Women are worth less in blood money or indemnity for death or injury

*Koran  sura 2.178    Believers, retaliation is decreed for you in blood shed: a free man for a free man, a slave for a slave, and a female for a female. 

Islamic law eg Reliance of the Traveller, Law o 4.9  p 590  sets the payment for a female at HALF that for a male.

8)  Women must hide their offensive, shameful body.   Women are temptresses (Cat’s meat).

Koranic text tells women to lower their gaze and guard their modesty drawing their veils over their bosoms eg *Koran sura 24.31.     A Muslim website explained this means to have a head covering long enough to extend past the bosom.  Indeed, outer garments must be cast OVER their persons so they are not molested! Eg *Koran 33.59

Mohammad tells a man to veil his wife and make her wear a thicker dress that did NOT show her body shape (ie veiling was NOT restricted to Mohammad’s wives!) eg *Abu Dawud Book 32 No.  4104 

Sharia Laws demand females cover themselves:
Women cannot leave the home without permission and she must be covered/veiled eg Reliance of the Traveller Law F 5.6 p122 (cover head and body to pray), 
*In  Law m2.3  p512 we find  ‘the majority of scholars have been recorded as holding that it is unlawful for women to leave the house with faces unveiled, whether or not there is a likely hood of temptation.  Where there is likelihood of temptation, scholars unanimously concur that it is unlawful..

*Law m2.7 p 513 notes ‘It is unlawful for a woman to show any part of her body to an adolescent boy or a non-Muslim woman..

*Law m2.8 p 513 notes rulings from the Hanafi school of law which allows the face and hands to be visible in contrast to the above--(1) It is NOT permissible for a man to look at a woman who is not his wife or unmarriageable relative except for her face and hands…if a man is not safe from LUST he may NOT look at her face except when demanded from necessity…

According to the shafii school ---Reliance of the Traveller Law m2.4  P 512 states a man may look at his wife's nakedness......

(defined by Law f5.3 p 121 the nakedness of a man -including young boys- consists of the area between the navel and knees.
The nakedness of a woman-even if a young girl- consists of the whole body except the face and hands.  [Sheik Nuh 'ali Salman says the nakedness of a woman is that which invalidates the prayer if exposed -see Law w23.0 P 899 -the nakedness of a woman that she is forbidden to reveal differs in the shafii school according to different circumstances.   In the privacy of the home, her nakedness is that which is between the navel and knees.  In the prayer, it means everything besides the face and hands and when outside on the street it refers to the entire body (Hanafis say all but face, hands).   As for looking at women, it is not permissible to look at any part of a woman who is neither a member of one's unmarriageable kin nor ones wife]

*Law m 2.4 says it’s offensive for either husband or wife to look at the others genitals!!

We need to ask WHY females are required to cover themselves head-to-toe while males must only cover the genital area, at most from the navel to the knees.
Answer –Females are offensive, deformed ... and females are temptresses who must be hidden so they don’t lead men astray.

Several hadith describe women as ‘awrah’ and welcomed by the devil.  Awrah means shameful, offensive, pudendum, faultiness, deficiency, weakness,  deformed – particularly one eyed (hence the demand a year or two ago that Muslim women cover ALL but one eye!).  These terms have become associated with the whole body of a female!

*Fiqh-us-sunnah 4.30  (hadith dealing with washing dead bodies notes what Awrah refers to  -alive or dead-)  for in matters of 'awrah ('Awrah (Arabic), those parts of a person's body which must be covered.   A man must cover the front and back of his pubic region. There is disagreement about the navel, thighs, and knees.
There is, however, no disagreement over what constitutes a woman's 'awrah.  Her entire body is 'awrah and must be covered, except her hands and face)

Fiqh-us-Sunnah was written by Sayyid Saabiq (1915-2000 C.E.), and examines the laws/rulings from the 4 main law schools and always refers back to the Koran and sunna.

In many hadith women are joined with that most offensive creature, the black dog (which is a devil), in interrupting prayer eg *Muslim book 4 No. 1032 , No 1034; *Abu-Dawud Book 2, No.703,  704and more. 

Mohammad described females as coming and going in the shape of devils: They were objects of his lust.
When excited by females in the street Mohammad rushed to wife Zainab who was tanning leather and had intercourse with her (*Muslim Book 8, Number 3240 –women as devils:) and on another occasion, after seeing a female, he ‘satisfied his desire’ with Sawdah who was making perfume (*Tirmidi 927  ALIMCDRom).

Incorrectly dressed women don’t get to paradise or have their prayers answered:
*Muslim Book 24, Number 5310 notes that Mohammad said those women who are dressed but ‘appear’ naked ... and hence incline their husbands to evil.. will be in hell.:

*Maliks Muwatta Book 48, Number 48.4.7: notes such females will NOT enter the garden...

*Abu-Dawud Book 2, Number 641: Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin:
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Allah does not accept the prayer of a woman who has reached puberty unless she wears a veil.

Top Saudi Cleric 'slams' evil unveiled women  Reuters Tue Jan 20/04 3.39 PM ET
Riyadh(Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's highest religious authority said Tuesday Saudi women appearing without their veils in the presence of men "cause the doors of evil to open."

It should be noted that clothes must be thick and loose so the shape of the body cannot be seen and must not be glamorous or draw attention and cannot be like the clothes of the opposite sex or the infidels!  Many Muslim females tripping out in bright, glittery ‘hijabs’ etc in Australia are NOT obeying Islam’s laws!

And the ‘evil’ desires Muslim women hide themselves from ---who is responsible for those?   Muslim men throughout Europe are responsible for the massive increase in rapes against the non-Muslim population and are responsible for the majority of rapes although only a small % of the population.   And rapes within the Islamic community –who would know!  The problem is ISLAM’s ‘morality!’   

We see the sick loathing of bodies, particularly women’s bodies, the threat of hell and the threat of the uncontrolled lust of Muslim men for ‘cats meat,’ all used to control females.   Males and females are segregated in Islam –gender apartheid.  There is a whole series of laws based on text that forbids ‘marriageable’ males and females from looking at each other, speaking to each other or touching Reliance of the Traveller laws m 2.3 -2.9 p 512-514–except under exceptional circumstances eg in court!

It was appalling to see the covered adult females particularly the ‘eyes only visible’ one in the black shroud in the “All about Learning’   article as this presents a vile view of females as invisible, unidentifiable objects of shame.  Children cannot engage in normal human interaction with a death shroud where the eyes are barely visible – this should NOT be allowed in schools.

It was more appalling to see the little girls in the photo as these tiny girls were swathed in heavy material from head –to-toe.  They are learning that they must cover their shameful body and that failure to do so turns them into evil temptresses as in Islam, men can avail themselves of little girls –Mohammad demanded Aisha when she was 6!   This is physical and psychological CHILD CRUELTY inflicted on girls and symbolic of their INFERIORITY!

These children have NO choice!  Indeed while such attire is forced in the Islamic world there is considerable evidence it is forced in the west eg French Muslim Samira Bellil (now deceased) wrote about her own life in the French Muslim enclaves in the book 'In the hell of the tournantes' 2002 and described the violence (gang-rape, beatings, burning alive) experienced by French Muslim women from Muslim males enforcing strict Islamic dress/behaviour codes. 

Similar violence has been reported in many western countries eg Muslim father and son jailed for the murder of their 16 year old daughter/sister because she wouldn’t wear a hijab (Singh 2010). I have experience of covered Muslim girls forbidden from participating in many activities because they cannot remove their attire and indeed can become hysterical if someone sees them without it! This is mental and physical cruelty!  In Britain, several Muslim schools now demand that girls travel to and from school completely covered and veiledit is a sign of Islamic power (International Express 2010).   

This attire damages a female’s health, destroys individuality, reduces activity:  Such attire has been linked with rickets in babies born to 'covered' mothers, early osteoporosis and reduced immunity.   In hot weather I have seen Muslim girls suffering heat stress as most heat is lost from the head to maintain body temperature but this is impossible when the head is wrapped-up!  (Physical harm!)
It also makes all women look the same so individuality is destroyed.  The attire is associated with attitudes to the female’s body that inculcate shame and fear (Psychological harm).  ExMuslim Wafa Sultan said she has never recovered for the psychological damage done by being told from early childhood that her body was shameful and must be covered.

A hijab of course means a wall, veil etc something that shields a person from the view of another –it is an act of segregation from society.  People had to speak to Mohammad’s wives from behind a wall/curtain/screen eg  *Koran 33.53.  

Muslims will tell you this is a sign of respect, emancipation etc but no-one respects a faceless black blob incapable of human interaction.  Women aren’t empowered, they are removed from society as was the original intention –they must not tempt men so they shouldn’t be seen, they must walk to the side of the street out of the way of men (*Abu-Dawud Book 41, Number 5252), they must keep to the shadows etc they must stay home...

Socially offensive and threatening attire:
Such Islamic attire is the FLAG of Islam shoved in the face of others.  For those who have fled Islam’s violence, exMuslims, and those who know what Islam really is a clear threat against the safety and freedom of others and against our system of government and laws. It is also a security risk.
SS uniforms and Klu Klux Klan uniforms are also ‘just material’!

If we cared for the physical and psychological health of little girls who should be developing as identifiable individuals engaged in the wider society, we would ban such attire at least for those under 18 and ban it completely in ALL public places including schools, Muslim or not!

9)  Brothel paradise –promised to all (Male) believers, not just martyrs.
Lots of text in the Koran eg *suras 2.25;   37.48;  38.52;  44.54; 52.20; 55.56; 55.70-74;  56.22;  56.35-36;  78.33 describe the chaste female companions joined to the men eg fair women with big eyes;  maidens whom no jinn or men before THEM has touched;  beautiful;  virgins; special creations and voluptuous!
There are also several suras describing immortal youths like pearls who will serve the men eg *Koran suras 52.24;  56.17;  76. 19.
There is no mention of any provision for women! (lovely male ‘companions?)

In hadiths *Tirmidhi 1067   ...he is he is married to seventy-two wives of the maidens with large dark eyes;

and *Tirmidi 1494  Narrated AbuSa'id.  Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said, "The lowliest of the inhabitants of Paradise will be HE who has eighty thousand servants, seventy-two wives, and for whom a round pavilion of pearls, chrysoprase and rubies as large as the distance between al-Jabiyah and San'a will be set up." By the same isnad he said, "Those who are to go to Paradise, who die whether young or old, will come into Paradise aged thirty and never grow older......

Such rewards of wives (NOT husbands) with large dark eyes or pleasant vaginas where men have a penis that doesn’t bend down are found in other hadith sets eg  *Ibn Majah.  Lurid descriptions of the females along with the male’s sexual prowess can be found in the writings of many important Muslims eg al-Ghazali who promises masses of females (died 1111CE .  Many consider him the greatest Muslim after Mohammad) (see text in 'Bomber's Brothel' - 01/11/07
and the ‘earthly’ demand for virgins and danger of Muslims with political power in 'Eternal virgins for an Islamic earthly paradise' (10-07-08)

The paradise offered is an obscene brothel for men.  It is a disgusting extension of the earthly brothel, the Muslim ‘marriage’ where men can have multiple wives and endless concubines to service their ‘needs.’   In paradise the females are young, well endowed and endlessly virginal and don’t forget the boys like pearls!  Any Muslim female that makes it to paradise –and remember, women populate hell - has only the prospect of watching her husband/other men using the houris/females as they wish.

This is the reward offered by Islam’s god and it is an obscenity.  It is the final cap on Islam’s loathing for females who are just objects of use by men in any way they like.  Why worry about pornography when you have Islam –filled with violence, repression, control, ownership, humiliating terms and the sexual abuse of females of any age.

This brief (OK long but there’s plenty more!!) look at ‘All about learning  -Islam’ –reading the Koran etc should clearly show why children should NOT be taught Islam in Islamic schools. 

Islam’s text, attitudes, example of Mohammad and sharia laws are utterly unacceptable in OUR society where laws, attitudes and practices enforce or encourage gender equity and aim to get males and females to be friends, to mix, to enjoy each other’s company and respect each other.  
You don’t respect someone referred to in the most derogatory terms and rendered unidentifiable whom you can beat and plough like a field, throw out at your whim, and who has to be available to service you at any time just to keep a roof over her head etc! 

We are training little boys to believe they rule females and little girls to believe they are inferior and must submit to Islam’s dictates, abusive terms and control because this is what allah wants and is the only way they are acceptable to allah.  This is sick.

The very few pieces of text claimed as good or ‘equitable’ for women aren’t – eg *Koran sura 16.72 notes wives were created for men (not vice versa).  *Koran sura 2.233 which discusses deciding when a baby will be weaned certainly does NOT prove ‘equality.’   And the often quoted *Koran sura 2.187 which refers to the permission for men and wives to have sex stating they are your garments (covers) and you are theirs .... is anything BUT equality.  Muslim men can have many garments of his own choosing, some very young and can change them at will and steal them from others (slaves).  Females have to share their one ‘garment’ with other wives/concubines/slaves and cannot change it at will or steal one but must take what’s dropped on them even when a child!  A female’s one ‘garment’ can be ripped from her any time without compensation as she is flung out.  Yes, real Islamic equality!
Being told to pray, carryout certain rituals or work doesn’t mean men and women are equal and clearly in Islam women are grossly inferior and rarely make it to the brothel paradise!
The Koran mentions only one female –Mary, sister of Aaron.  The Koran speaks directly only to men.

Let’s not pretend Islam’s degradation and abuse of women isn’t already happening here.  The Islamic Women’s Welfare Council produced a report (2008) that has largely been hushed up and was denied by Mufti Sheik Fehmi, that shows that Muslim communities already live according to Islam and frequently against the laws and values of Australia.   These Muslim women seem to want it both ways –the special everything given to Muslims by our grovelling politicians, universities, institutions yet they then want the rights, freedom and equality given by our NON-Muslim, western Judeo-Christian based laws in preference to Islam’s laws –sharia –‘the way’ that all true Muslims must live!   They blamed poorly trained imams for the abuse of women when the problem of course is the text and laws of Islam --which are now taught in Islamic schools to many young Muslims.  (What a worrying future!)

‘SOME Muslim religious leaders in Victoria are condoning rape within marriage, domestic violence, polygamy, welfare fraud and exploitation of women, according to an explosive report on the training of imams.’ (Swartz 2008)  All this is of course in full agreement with Islam’s text and laws –if a female is still ‘married’ then by Islamic law she must provide hubby with sex when he requests it and he can beat her and control her movement and have multiple wives etc.  She is NOT entitled to a share of the property on divorce.

'The report also cites sexual assault allegations connected with under-age marriages'.   Polygamy is increasing with one wife or so claiming centre-link support adding to the ‘family’ finances!  (Swartz 2008).  Again, paedophilia and polygamy are both OK under Islam but against our laws!  And we finance this abuse of our laws –this is our jizya tax!

The Koran doesn’t mention clitoridectomy but the hadith and laws do.  Mohammad fully endorsed the practice and the circumcised female organ is mentioned many times.  In Reliance of the Traveller, Law e 4.3, p 59 the correct translation of the classical Arabic states that circumcision is obligatory... and circumcision of the female is by cutting out the clitoris.  Hanbalis hold that it is sunna while the others believe it is a courtesy to the husband , a noble act etc. (See text, laws in Female Genital Mutilation - 18/04/07 also parts 2,3 and Clitoridectomy; Wikipedia; The Age and Islam - 18-07-08 etc).  Laws are derived from the Koran and the bigger and highly important hadith.

Clitoridectomies occur in Australia including Victoria.  Australia’s Mufti from the Preston Mosque Victoria told the now deceased Pamela Bone, re clitoridectomy You probably don’t need it but women in hot countries do.” (Bone 2001 –Pam was aged about 50).   Australia is a hot country.  Do we think the Mufti doesn’t know his text and laws?

Likewise stoning isn’t in the Koran and it’s believed the section was lost but it was reintroduced and practised on females  by Mohammad.  Stoning along with a number of other vile punishments eg beheading, crucifixion, amputation, flogging are very much part of Islam’s text and laws.   Jews had stopped stoning and Jesus Christ banned stoning long before Islam (see text in 'Mohammad Demands Stoning' :  - 09-07-09 also 'Violence to women and children' - 30/05/07 and more)
Well hell, just call me a nasty  pasty, racist, bigot, etc because I don’t tolerate this –I think it’s repulsive and I don’t want children brainwashed in this ideology before they are even old enough to comprehend the implications of what they are being taught.  I don’t want ANY child in Australia taught to bow down to this ‘ungodly’ ‘unholy’ allah, or to revere and follow the perfect example of the vile Mohammad or demand and practice sharia law.  I don’t want people trained in this foul ideology in this great country, threatening us all. 

For me protecting the rights of the child doesn’t mean allowing them to be married off and enjoyed, or suffer clitoridectomy or be beaten or wrapped head-to-toe in stifling unhealthy attire or subjected to the endless restrictions,  feelings of shame and the long list of abusive terms uttered by allah and Mohammad re females.   And I don’t want little boys brought up with the vile attitudes towards women that Islam inculcates.  Ditto for attitudes to non-Muslims, black people, Jews, idolators, polytheists, Christians and atheists like myself –NO, teaching Islam to children in Islamic schools is unacceptable.  Yes, all kids should know how horrifying, barbaric, intolerant, perverted etc Islam is but that is different!

What happened to the ‘rights of the child’ – or is ‘Islamic religious freedom’ or ‘Islamic rights’ more important?  WHERE DO WE STAND!

Muslim school principal Rahat Arain  claims they are concerned with values ---and so are we because the ‘values’ evident in Islam’s text, behaviour of Mohammad and laws are certainly not the values we adhere to and will certainly NOT create a safe harmonious society based on ideas of equality, individual freedom, tolerance, open democracy, etc.
There is NO women’s equality in Islam despite the false claims by Muslims (see 'No Women’s equality in Islam' - 12-04-09 this site).

I have started each section with the Koran but remember, the Koran lacks historical context and is arranged in order of biggest to smallest suras.   The historical context doesn’t matter anyway as the koran is allah’s literal truth forever.   Some attempt at a chronology uses the sira written 150 years or more after Mohammad died.  Muslims do not completely agree on the text order but generally text is divided into the earlier ‘Meccan’ text and the later Medina text which over-rides earlier text and was written when Mohammad gained power.  The Medina text is full of abuses of women and violence to others and are Mohammad’s final instructions eg suras -2, 8, 3, 33, 60, 4, 99, 57, 47, 13, 55, 76, 65, 98, 59, 110, 24, 22, 63, 58, 49, 66, 62, 64, 61, 48, 5, 9.  5 or 9 are generally the last and over-riding suras.   The Koran is a small part of Islam’s text.  The hadith are essential to understanding the Koran and provide instructions for ceremonies and day-to-day living.  The sira supposedly details Mohammad’s life and example.  Islam’s laws come from the Koran AND Hadith/sunna.  I have used the Sunni hadith and laws here as they represent 80-90% of the Muslim population.  The Shia differ in some areas but still adhere to the Koran, and have their own hadith and laws but their attitudes to females and infidels mirror the Sunnis.  Shia have temporary marriage while Sunnis claim they don’t but in fact do under different terms (see Dankowitz  MEMRI 2006).
