Questionable Teachings of Islam:

                                  One Billion People Deceived

        Adding insult to injury, Muhammad proclaims that women are an "evil omen" and will
        comprise the greatest majority of souls in hell:

        "...if there is in anything an evil omen, it is a house, a horse and a woman.
        (Abu-Dawud: Book 29, No. 3911)

        "... I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were
        ungrateful." (Sahih Bukhari: Vol. 1, Book 2, No. 28)

        Another Islamic law that Muslim women are to abide by is to cover their face when they
        are out in public. According to Islam, the veil (Burka) is a mandate from Allah, yet another
        account states that one of Muhammad's companions proposed the idea so that other men
        would not talk to Muhammad's wives. The same companion also gives an idea on divorce:

        "And as regards [to] the veiling of the women, I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! I wish you ordered
        your wives to cover themselves from the men because good and bad ones talk to them.
        So the verse of the veiling of the women was revealed."' (Sahih Bukhari: Vol. 1, Book 8,
        No. 395)

        "Once the wives of the Prophet made a united front against the Prophet and I said to
        them, 'It may be if he (the Prophet) divorced you all, that his Lord (Allah) will give him
        instead of you wives better than you. So this verse was revealed."' (66:5) Sahih Bukhari:
        Vol. 1, Book 8, No. 395)

        Chapter Summary:

        The  fact  that  fundamental  Islam  forbids  questioning  anything  that  is  written  in  the
        Qur'an or pronounced by Muhammad reinforces total control over the personal life of each
        Muslim. In many areas, Muslim wives risk the fate of being beaten, divorced or killed with
        no recourse against the husband if he proves he had justification allowed by Shari'a law.
        Herein is the questionable ideology that is attributed not only to the Islamic god, Allah,
        but  to  Muhammad,  whom  many  consider  to  be  the  role  model  of  a  highly  revered
        statesman and religious leader.

        By  comparison,  Jesus  placed  equal  importance  for  women  in  regard  to  their  status  in
        society and commended their faith which many times was greater than that of men.
        "And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go
        in peace." (Luke 8:48)
