The Independent: How the teachings of Islam could help us prevent more sexual abuse scandals

On the plus side, she’s probably not being masturbated at by Harvey Weinstein.

Via. Saith lying Ahmadi Qasim Rashid:

If the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse revelations shocked you, then you’re dangerously ignorant to (sic) reality. According to RAINN, an American is assaulted every 98 seconds, one out of every six women will deal with rape or attempted rape in her lifetime, and 90 per cent of rape victims are women.

I’m a Muslim, and a civil rights lawyer with a special interest in advocating for women’s rights. My advocacy is informed not just by the law, but by strategies detailed in Islamic teachings and Prophet Muhammad’s example to pre-empt sexual abuse. Yes, the cancer of sexual abuse against women that we see in Christian majority America is just as prevalent in Muslim majority Pakistan, (not enough islam in Pakistan, I guess – Ed.), but also in Hindu majority India and state atheist China. This proves that men worldwide are failing in our responsibility to end sexual abuse and gender based violence.

…Yes, Islam implores accountability to the creator, but rather than preach empty dogmatic theories, Islam instead prescribes a proven secular model.

In a recent internationally broadcast lecture given live before roughly 6,000 Muslim women, the Khalifa of Islam said, “Chapter four, verse two of the Holy Quran…clarifies that women were not created out of the body of a man or from his rib. Rather, the Quran testifies to the fact that men and women were created from a single soul and are of the same kind and species.”

Thus, the Quran 4:2 first establishes men and women as equal beings. Chapter 4:20 then forbids men from forcing a woman to act against her will, thereby ensuring women maintain autonomy and self-determination.

…Together, we can employ a proven Islamic model that will stop this madness, and re-invoke gender equity today in America, and the world.

    who cares what one muslim says. It’s what the pesky rest of ’em do that matters.

    • Islamic mumbo-jumbo has a way of making shit smell like perfume.

      Ask all the, clitoris free, black bag covered, women in Saudi Arabia.

  • Islam is a feminist religion if you ignore the wife beating, sex slave, child marriage & garbage bag clothing for women and all that other stuff.

      Wait, if islam gave rights to women that didn’t exist before, why was the muslim prophet Muhammad’s first job working for a successful businesswoman? If female children were killed at birth before islam, then where did babies come from, or if it was not every girl killed, why was there such an excess of females that necessitated up to four wives for every man?

      • It’s a good point, and one I’ve never seen any Muslim address. If Mo invented women’s rights, how come he got his start in life as a rich cougar’s boy-toy?

        As for the baby girl thing: if your religion’s biggest claim to the moral high ground is that you don’t bury babies alive, you may not have much to brag about.

    Funny how they don’t think the hand-chopping thing would work for thievery though.

    “On the plus side, she’s probably not being masturbated at by Harvey Weinstein” on the minus side, she probably is Harvey Weinstein!!!

  • Is this the same Islam where its founder married a child?
