Prophet's marriage to his daughter-in law and adoption in Islam

In adoption, a pesron (or a couple) takes parenting responsibility of another person (orphans or helpless child) and permanently transfers all rights and responsibilities which include right to inherit and pass on adopters’r genealogy and name. In many cases, when a couple adopts a orphan they consider that child as their own. It’s an honorable institution and very popular among pre-Islamic Arabs who used to consider adoption as a noble deed. And indeed it is.

But how Islam came to prohibit (ban) this noble custom? More appropriately, why all knowing Allah has banned this practice?

Background:   Even Mohammad has adopted children before he recieved his ‘so called’ Prophethood from Allah. His wife Khadiza had a male slave servant, Zayd b. Harith, and she along with Mohammad had adopted this male slave. It happened  when Zayd’s father and uncle came to buy his freedom from Khadiza and she agrees to manumitt him. But Zayd refuses manumitting and chooses to stay with Khadiza and Mohammad. On this, Tabari writes:
The Prophet having witnessed this, took Zayd out to the Hijr and said, "O all those who are present, witness that Zayd becomes my son, with mutual rights of inheritance." When Zayd's father and paternal uncle saw this, they were satisfied and went away.. .... Zayd b. Harithah was thus called Zayd b. Muhammad until God revealed Islam. (The History of al-Tabari: Biographies of the Prophet's Companions and Their Successors, translated by Ella Landau-Tasseron [State University of New York Press (SUNY), Albany 1998], Volume XXXIX (39), pp. 9)
Even hadith of Sahih Bukhari says Zayd b. Harith was called Zayd b. Mohammad, implying Prophet Mohammad as father and Zayd as his son.
We used not to call Zaid bin Haritha the freed slave of Allah's Apostle except Zaid bin Muhammad till the Qur’anic Verse was revealed: "Call them (adopted sons) by (the names of) their fathers. That is more than just in the Sight of Allah." (33.5) (Sahih Al-Bukhari; Vol. 6, Book 60, # 305)
He adopted Zayd. Mohammad became Prophet Mohammad. And Prophet moved to Medina along with his followers. As a father to Zayd, he asks for the hand of Zaynab Jahsh on behalf of his adopted son, who along with her brother refuses marriage to Zayd b. Mohammad and then this verse was revealed:
033.036 (YUSUFALI):  It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any option about their decision: if any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path.
This is what Tafsir Al-jalalayn says with regard to this verse:
This [verse] was revealed regarding 'Abd Allah b. Jahsh and his sister Zaynab, whose hand the Prophet had asked for in marriage, but meaning on behalf of Zayd b. Haritha. They were loathe to this [proposal] when they found out [that it was on the latter's behalf], for they had thought that the Prophet (s) wanted to marry her himself. But afterwards they consented because of the verse. Thus the Prophet (s) gave her in marriage to Zayd.....
As time passes and every one is living their own life, Prophet one day goes to house of Zayd, it will be good if one reads what Tabari (Greatest and steemed Muslim historian) writes:
"In this year the Messenger married Zaynab bt. Jahsh. "Allah's Messenger came to the house of Zayd bin [son of] Muhammad. Perhaps the Messenger missed him at that moment. Zaynab, Zayd's wife, rose to meet him. Because she was dressed only in a shift, the Holy Prophet turned away from her. She said: 'He is not here. Come in, you are as dear to me as my father and mother!' Muhammad refused to enter. Zaynab had dressed in haste when she heard that the Prophet was at her door. She jumped up eagerly and excited the admiration of Allah's Messenger, so that he turned away murmuring something that could scarcely be understood. However, he did say overtly, 'Glory be to Allah Almighty, who causes hearts to turn!'" (Page 1)
When Zayd came home, his wife told him that the Messenger of God had come to his house. Zayd said, "Why didn't you ask him to come in?" He replied, "I asked him, but he refused." "Did you hear him say anything?" he asked. She replied, "As he turned away, I heard him say: ‘Glory be to God the Almighty! Glory be to God, who causes hearts to turn!’" So Zayd went to Muhammad. 'Prophet, I have heard that you came to my house. Why didn't you go in? Perhaps Zaynab has excited your admiration, so I will leave her.'" (Page 2)
"Zayd left her, and she became free. While the Messenger of Allah was talking with Aisha, a fainting overcame him. When he was released from it, he smiled and said, 'Who will go to Zaynab to tell her the good news? Allah has married her to me. Then the Holy Prophet recited [Qur'an 33] to the end of the passage. Aisha said, 'I became very uneasy because of what we heard about her beauty and another thing, the loftiest of matters - what Allah had done for her by personally giving her to him in marriage. I said that she would boast of it over us.'" (Page 3)
(The History of Al-Tabari: The Victory of Islam, translated by Michael Fishbein [State University of New York Press, Albany, 1997], Volume VIII, pp. 1-3)
(In fact, Zaynab did boast about this by saying to Prohet’s other wives:“You were given in marriage by your families, while I was married (to the Prophet) by Allah from over seven Heavens.”)

This scandalous episode is mentioned in many other Islamic books with insignificant variations. What is certain is that Muslims can neither oppose nor deny that Prophet Mohammad did marry his daughter-in-law. The Koranic verse mentioned in Tabari’s work is the following:
Behold! Thou didst say to one who had received the grace of Allah and thy favour: "Retain thou (in wedlock) thy wife, and fear Allah." But thou didst hide in thy heart that which Allah was about to make manifest: thou didst fear the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear Allah. Then when Zaid had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary (formality), We joined her in marriage to thee: in order that (in future) there may be no difficulty to the Believers in (the matter of) marriage with the wives of their adopted sons, when the latter have dissolved with the necessary (formality) (their marriage) with them. And Allah's command must be fulfilled. (Koran, Yusuf Ali, Chapter 33 verse 37)
Lets recollect the story:
1. Prophet goes to the house of Zayd and instead of Zayd,
2. He finds Zayd’s wife and see her half naked.
3. Then he says, 'Glory be to Allah Almighty, who causes hearts to turn!’.
4. Zaynab narrates this to Zayd
5. Zayd goes to Prophet and offers to divorce her
6. Prophet says ‘no’ and any way Zayd divorces his wife Zaynab
7. And then Allah reveals a verse ordering Prophet to marry her

And this is how Tafsir Al-Jalalayn explains this verse 33:37 i.e. what Allah is telling Prophet: “But you had hidden in your heart what God was to disclose, [what] He was to manifest of your love for her and of [the fact] that should Zayd part with her you would marry her, and you feared people, would say, ‘He has married his son’s wife!’, though God is worthier that you should fear Him, in all things, so take her in marriage and do not be concerned with what people say.

Many Muslims are troubled by this. And many Muslims try to explain this away by offering weird reasoning. But Koranic verse does not lie what this is all about.

Part of the verse 33.37 is ‘....But thou didst hide in thy heart that which Allah was about to make manifest.....’.

What was Prophet hiding in his heart? And Allah is going to ensure ‘this wish’ takes place. And Allah decrees Prophet to marry Zaynab, his daughter-in-law.

All this implies that Prophet’s heart desired to marry Zaynab. But he feared what other Arabs might say about this. Like in other difficult situations he has faced, like Nakhla raid, he had to use Allah to get what he wants.

Interestingly, Allah even states reasons for Prophet’s marriage to his daughter-inlaw. The stated reason is that in future there will be no difficulty for Muslim men to marry daughters of their adopted sons!!
Adopted sons? Once the adoption takes place there is no difference between natural son and adopted son.
So, suddenly Zayd b. Mohammad becomes an adopted son of Prophet from son of Prophet.

The question that arises is was it necessary for prophet to marry his daughter in law if Allah wanted to legislate that men can marry wives of their adopted sons. He could have simply revealed a verse in this regard to his Prophet.

Interestingly, more questions can only arise when Allah bans adoption itself. So when adoption itself is banned where is the need for legislating that men can marry wives of their adopted sons and asking Prophet to marry his daughter-in-law.

God has not assigned to any man two hearts within his breast; nor has He made your wives, when you divorce, saying, 'Be as my mother's back,' truly your mothers, neither has He made your adopted sons your sons in fact. That is your own saying, the words of your mouths; but God speaks the truth, and guides on the way. Call them after their true fathers; that is more equitable in the sight of God. If you know not who their fathers were, then they are your brothers in religion, and your clients. There is no fault in you if you make mistakes, but only in what your hearts premeditate. God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate. (Koran, Chapter 33, verses 4-5)

Ibn Kathir, a classical Islamic scholar, says this on this vese:< ‘nor has He made your adopted sons your real sons in fact’.>:  This was revealed concerning Zayd bin Harithah, may Allah be pleased with him, the freed servant of the Prophet. The Prophet had adopted him before prophethood, and he was known as Zayd bin Muhammad. Allah wanted to put an end to this naming and attribution ...This is a command which abrogates the state of affairs that existed at the beginning of Islam, when it was permitted to call adopted sons after the man who adopted them. Then Allah commanded that they should be given back the names of their real fathers, and states that this was more fair and just.

That is, institution of adoption is simply banned in Islam.

Now what is so wrong with practice of adoption? Is there any cruelty or injustice associeatd with adoption, a noble deed? How could Allah dislike such noble practice and ban it?

Verily, same Allah has no problem when he literally sanctions slavery and sexual slavery through the verses 4:24, 23:5-6 and 70:29-30.

Same Allah proclaims that Muslims should only show enmity and hatred to their parents and brothers if they are Non-Muslims (Verses 60:4 and 9:23 and 9:114).

This whole thing rather looks like Allah is very eager to respond to satisfying carnal desires of Prophet Mohammad which fits very well with the truth that Koran is Prophet’s personal document.

On rape wave committed by Muslim men in Britain

I documented so much about Muslim men in Britain grooming young British girls and raping Non-Muslims in this blog, there are so many cases of such rapes and abuses, that I can not put them in one place for readers to see.

But one can use this label 'SEXUAL JIHAD'.

Yet, British society can not speak against this crime wave because of being accused of racism. In the below video, Robert Spencer talks on this problem.

Muslim Lawyer in Russia: Russia will be in covered in blood if it says no to Sharia

Poor guy. He really does not understand that Islam is all about peace and non-violence?

Koran 2:193: And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allâh) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allâh (Alone). But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zâlimûn (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)

Muslim lawyer pledges to 'cover Russia in blood'

Police in the Russian capital said on Wednesday they will examine a video in which a prominent Muslim lawyer pledges to "cover Russia in blood" if the authorities refuse to establish courts to implement Islamic law.

"May be you are foreigners here, and this is our home. We will set our rules, whether you want this or not," Dagir Khasavov, a lawyer and aide to an upper house committee chairman, said in an interview with the REN TV channel.

"Any attempts to stop this will result in blood. We will turn the city (Moscow) into a second dead sea," he was quoted as saying.

Sex with Corpses!! Islam allows

Egypt’s women urge MPs not to pass early marriage, sex-after-death laws: report.


Egypt’s women urge MPs not to pass early marriage, sex-after-death laws: report

Egypt’s National Council for Women (NCW) has appealed to the Islamist-dominated parliament not to approve two controversial laws on the minimum age of marriage and allowing a husband to have sex with his dead wife within six hours of her death according to a report in an Egyptian newspaper.

The appeal came in a message sent by Dr. Mervat al-Talawi, head of the NCW, to the Egyptian People’s Assembly Speaker, Dr. Saad al-Katatni, addressing the woes of Egyptian women, especially after the popular uprising that toppled president Hosni Mubarak in February 2011.

She was referring to two laws: one that would legalize the marriage of girls starting from the age of 14 and the other that permits a husband to have sex with his dead wife within the six hours following her death.

Muslims in Australia are leaving Islam; any surprises

Muslims always say Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. But what they do not say is it is because of high fertility rates. What they do not mention is Islam preaches killing any Muslim who discords Islam and enters another faith.

Here one can see the pure hypocrisy of Muslims and Islam. They say that so and so converted to Islam but never about Muslims who suffered because they left Islam.

Look at this video in which a eEx- Muslim family in Britain, which converted to Christianity, is threatened and persecuted:

And then A Muslim girl in India is beaten because she converted to Christianity.

I can keep on adding these. But the point is what kind of psychology drives Muslims to boast like that, and when seen in proper manner it is hypocrisy and practice of double standard.

Islam never has any moral standards and so Muslims.


Any way, what kind of people really stay in Islam when they are told:
1. Prophet married his daughter-in-law
2. Prophet raided caravans and villages for plunder
3. Prophet owned and traded slaves
4. Prophet raped Non-Muslim women
5. Prophet tortured people to death
6. Prophet ordered executions of those who criticized his raiding of caravans

The list can go on. The worst thing in all this is Koran says he is the most perfect man ever created by him, in conduct and morality, and is an example for Muslims.

Muslim rapists in Britain laugh after being sentenced to imprisonment

Muslims organized themselves as gangs and went about raping and abusing British girls, calling them as white bitches and immoral etc. Here, a Muslim even has no reservations whatsoever to call the victims as 'slags' in front of the judge.

Muslim gang jailed for kidnapping and raping two girls as part of their Eid celebrations

Lets read one more:

Khalile Maqsood, a can driver, shows no remorse after raping a passenger    (It looks like his wife is pregnant with his fourth child.)

When I wrote 'when will UK wake up' in the post 'Rape wave in UK', I was expecting some sane politicians will do. It looks like it is not the case.

Rational people do not need to see this kind of incidents (or blood shed) happening to understand Islam and Muslims can never live in harmony with Non-Muslims. The Islamic history, the way present Islamic world is treating religious minorities in their countries and Islamic theology are sufficient to drive the point of Muslims never wanting to live with Non-Muslims in harmony and on equal terms.


Muslims are brought up in a climate of teaching of hatred towards Non-Muslims, superiority of Muslims via inferiority of Non-Muslims and the requirement of Muslims should dominate the world. For this attitude to shape Muslim psyche, every Muslim need not read Koran because informal chain of communication can equally disseminate what is being in Islam and its tenets.  

But it looks like delusion of existence of moderate Muslims will continue to guide Non-Muslims denying the truth about Islam.

An occasional idiot might question connection between Islamic inherent hatred towards Non-Muslims and Muslim men raping infidel women; when Islam preaches hatred towards infidels, it is for a purpose. Considering that lofty ideal in Islam is about humiliating Non-Muslims, can there be better way than to abuse and rape Non-Muslim women? After all Prophet raped infidel women. Koran explicitly sanctions Muslim men raping infidel women. During many protests by Muslims, they always refer to Muslims eventually taking infidel women as sex slaves.

Coming to Britain, it looks like more the British population is brutalized by Jihadists, more concessions for Muslims. Suggested to read:

Hindu teacher fired for calling for domination of world by Hindus...

Sorry secular Hindu guys.

It is actually a Muslim who said this and fired for it too. Any way where did this Muslim learned about Islam needing to dominate world? The answer is Islamic teachings.

Islamic teacher under fire for calling on Welsh muslims to support fight for sharia law abroad

An Islamic teacher whose group was at the centre of an anti-terror raid on a Cardiff community hall has come under fire for calling on Welsh muslims to “physically” support the fight for sharia law abroad.

Abu Hajar, of Grangetown, Cardiff, is one of the leaders of the Islamic group Supporters of Tawheed, which on its website says its core belief is the “domination of the world by Islam”.

And look at this picture:

Co-existence and harmony?

Centrality of Prophet Mohammad to Islam

Islam means submission.

But what does this submission means? How to be a submitter? Muslims having to submit to the guidance of Allah as it exists in Koran makes them submitters. In addition to accepting guidance through Koran, Muslims also get the guidance from teachings and lived example of Prophet Mohammad.

Where do Muslims find Prophet Mohammad’s teaching and how he lived (traditions), collectively called Sunna? They find them in Hadith and Sira (Biography of Prophet Mohammad) collected and wrtten by pious Muslims themselves. [Sunna = Sayings of Prophet + Lived Example of Prophet]

Before one moves to study Sunna, they need to be firm about basis of authority of Prophet Mohammad as part of guidance and also as part of founadation and basics of Islam.

And Koran itself is the basis of authority of Prophet Mohammad. In no less than 90 verses, Koran repeatedly exhorts Muslims to obey and follow Prophet Mohammad and believe in him. It literally states that true submission to Allah and his guidance is achieved only when Muslims believe and accept Prophet’s commands. And these commands of Prophet Mohammad are to be obeyed by Muslims without regard to their personal opinions. Instructions of Prophet are same as instructions of Allah as following Koranic verses show:
004.059 (YUSUFALI):    O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination.
004.080 (YUSUFALI):     He who obeys the Messenger, obeys Allah: But if any turn away, We have not sent thee to watch over their (evil deeds).
i.e. obeying Prophet means obeying Allah. This theme of ‘obey Allah’ and ‘obey messenger’ appearing together as one unit is found in about 20 verses:  4.13, 4.14, 8.1, ,8.12-13, 8.20, 8.46, 9.71, 24.52, 33.31, 33.33, 33.36, 33.66, 33.71, 48.17, 49.14, 58.13, 72.23.

The verse 4:69 says that those who obey Prophet are among the most virtous and the most blessed:
004.069 (YUSUFALI):   All who obey Allah and the messenger are in the company of those on whom is the Grace of Allah,- of the prophets (who teach), the sincere (lovers of Truth), the witnesses (who testify), and the Righteous (who do good): Ah! what a beautiful fellowship!
The verse 24:52 says who follow Prophet will be successful and victoorius against Non-Muslims in this world:
YUSUFALI:     It is such as obey Allah and His Messenger, and fear Allah and do right, that will win (in the end),
PICKTHAL:    He who obeyeth Allah and His messenger, and feareth Allah, and keepeth duty (unto Him): such indeed are the victorious.
SHAKIR:       And he who obeys Allah and His Messenger, and fears Allah, and is careful of (his duty to) Him, these it is that are the achievers.
Koran clealry states that for Muslims obeying Prophet Mohammad is not optional, as the below verse shows:
033.036 (YUSUFALI):     It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any option about their decision: if any one disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path.
Koran equally states that it is must for Muslims to believe in Prophet Mohammad too in the verses 3.179, 4.136, 4.171, 7.158, 9.80, 24.62, 48.9, 48.13, 49.15, 57.7, 57.19, 57.21, 58.4, 61.11 and 64.8.
004.136 (YUSUFALI):       O ye who believe! Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and the scripture which He hath sent to His Messenger and the scripture which He sent to those before (him).
057.007 (SHAKIR):          Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and spend out of what He has made you to be successors of; for those of you who believe and spend shall have a great reward.
033.021 (PICKTHAL):  Verily in the messenger of Allah ye have a good example for him who looketh unto Allah and the Last Day, and remembereth Allah much.
068:002 AND 004 (SHAKIR): By the grace of your Lord you are not mad.......And most surely you conform (yourself) to sublime morality.
053.002 (SHAKIR) :  Your companion does not err, nor does he go astray;
In the abobe three verses, Allah stamps his approval of deeds of Prophet, what ever they be, and also tells Muslims to follow the example of Prophet in their life.

We see that Muslim men grow beards, even though Koran never tells them to do, because Prophet has beard. So is the case with Muslims applying perfume. They do because Mohammad liked and applied perfumes.

But the issue is not these. Some of the things Prophet did can only be condemned and can only be called criminal and inhuman by any standards. Yet Koran saying Prophet’s character as mighty and his actions are never wrong and Allah legislating Prophet’s life as the best model to be followed for Muslims has massive implications for theworld and Non-Muslims in general.

Few examples of sayings of Prophet Mohammad will illustrate the problem:
(Sahih Bukhari; Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25) Allah's Apostle said: "I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah."
(Tabari volume 9; page 69)   Prophet said, “Killing unbelievers is a small matter to us.
Any rational mind can easily see the connection between intolerance and violence towards Non-Muslims present in above hadith and those violent Koranic verses. One can also understand why population of Non-Muslims is dropping like a rock in Muslim nations as the abobve hadith indicates the only way for any person to be secura of their life and property is by converting to Islam. Muslims attacking Non-Muslims are just imitating the life of Prophet.

Understanding Koran may not be difficult but it is also not easy. Because of this Muslims conveniently sugar quote some Koranic verses to Non-Muslims to show Islam means tolerance - the 'tolerance' is completely different from equality. But if a knowledgeable Non-Muslim shows true nature of  these verses and inherent intolerant by giving context, some Muslims react by disowning Sunna; Hadith and Sira (Biography of Prophet). 

It is obvious that when we take a look at some episodes in the life of Prophet Mohammad taken from Hadith and Sira, any one can feel that a person like Mohammad can never be a Prophet of God in any way. To come around this problem of Prophet Mohammad's immoral life, a branch of Islam has come out which rejects Hadith and Sira i.e. if they take out Prophet Mohammad's life from equation, Islam becomes sane. These Muslims who reject Hadith and Sira are called Koran only Muslims.

But what I presented above shows that there can never be Islam with out Prophet Mohammad. And real life examples corroborate this e.g How Muslims should conduct their daily prayers is not found in Koran but Sunna.

Hindu Muslim inter religious marriages ( 7 ) : A psychologist on why Muslim men tend to oppress wives

Nicolai Sennels (born 1976) is a Danish psychologist. His first appearances in the Danish media concerned his unorthodox therapy methods that he developed as the only psychologist at Sønderbro, the youth prison. He taught the young prisoners about mindfulness meditation and developed a special program on anger management. Sennels also developed a psychotherapeutic method that focused on teaching criminals with a low understanding of emotions and empathy how to take responsibility for their own behavior. In 2008, the prisoners of Sønderbro voted the facility as the best prison in Denmark. The leader of Social Services in the Copenhagen municipality concluded that this was due to the work of Nicolai Sennels.

He also worked with Muslim criminals and based on this experience, he authored a book 'Among Criminal Muslims. A Psychologist's Experiences from the Copenhagen Municipality'.

Here, in the interview done by Robert Spencer (, he says Muslim men oppressing women is direct consequence of teachings of Islam.

Suggested to read the whole interview.


Spencer: As a psychologist, what is your explanation as to why Muslims oppress women?

Sennels: I see two psychological explanations for the oppression of women in Islam.

John Adams, the USA's 2nd president, said that he studied warfare so that his children could study agriculture and their children could study art. Abraham Maslow formulated a similar idea, the "hierarchy of needs," which shows how we aim toward a state of full development, possessing complete inner and outer freedoms, spontaneous playful creativity and love for all.

While Adams's and Maslow's views describe the goals and aims of our Western society beautifully as the full development of an individual’s potential, they do not apply to Islam or Muslim tradition. The aim of Islam and Muslims is dominance, not self-realization. Islam and Muslim culture is an aggressive movement, and giving space to female qualities such as sensitivity and empathy would be a hindrance, since it would allow for less aggressive human tendencies to emerge. Diplomacy, compromise, tolerance, democracy, compassion, sensitivity and empathy have to be locked away both on an internal and external level. On the outside, the oppression of women limits their influence, and their aversion against femininity in the outer world helps Muslims to also repress it inside themselves on the psychological level. Oppression of women is thus a psychological method of hardening a culture on the outside and people on the inside.

The other reason why Muslims oppress women and female sexuality, is the fact that women are simply stronger when it comes to sex. And it does not work for omnipotent, jealous and insecure Muslim macho-men that they in the most naked and vulnerable situation of all are the weaker party. Muslim men compensate this by oppressing their women and locking them up in apartments and ugly clumsy garments. The more embarrassing it is for the man that the woman is stronger in this essential aspect of life, the more he must dominate her in daily life. I had contact with two prostitutes who both said that Arab men did not last very long in bed. In many Muslim societies, a women's ability to enjoy sex is simply destroyed by a knife or a piece of glass. The jealous fantasy of the man not being able to satisfy his lustful wife, who therefore looks down on him and may even go to other men to gain satisfaction, is an ongoing source of torment for the wanna-be almighty Muslim man.

True love can only exist on the basis of respect and equality. Muslim societies are therefore full of men and women who never experienced true, satisfying and giving love. The emotional and sexual frustration that results from the inequality of the sexes and being forced to marry a partner that one does not love surely contribute to the aggression and emotional immaturity that Muslims display whenever they are numerous enough to feel that such behavior is acceptable. As one said, "forced marriage is the earthquake and what follows is a tsunami of domestic abuse, sexual abuse, child protection issues, suicide and murder."
