Female equality in the cult of Muhammad? Surely you jest you naif:

The title, 'The Woman who pleads' can mean a lot of different things. Pleading for what? Redemption? Insight? Love? Equality? You can certainly find that and more in the New Testament. But not in the Koran and not in this Sura. The subject of this chapter is not pleading for a higher purpose, intelligence or tolerance. It is a pleading not to be divorced.

..... There are 22 verses and some 110 plus lines. The beginning is truly strange. The pleading of women means the desire not to be divorced. Why? In pre-Mohammed Arabia, divorced women were deemed to be a social burden. They were shamed, shunned and tarnished. It was much better and in society's pecuniary interest, to have men looking after female counterparts – even if they were married to 2 or more.

Mohammed, through his creation 'Allah', or the male-moon idol of Mecca, informs his followers in verses 1-3 of the 'rules' around getting a divorce. Bizarrely, in verse 1 we find out that a man cannot ask for a divorce under a false premise and more specifically in naming his wife as his mother! Was incest so common in Arabia before Mohammed that a man could plausibly deny his marriage and claim that he had married his mother?!

If any men among you divorce their wives by Zihar (calling them mothers), they cannot be their mothers: none can be their mothers except those who gave them birth.”

Yes the beauty and logic of the El-Lah idol's 'uncreated' book. Incest negates a divorce. Thanks moon deity. We appreciate that signal contribution to civilization. If you can struggle through the Koranic diktat about divorce, as insipid as it is, you will notice that none of the violence against Unbelievers is reduced. Out of 22 verses, only 12 preach hate and intolerance. A moderate amount to be sure. The hate speech verses are: 5, 6, 8, 10, and 14-21. Some personal favourites include;

Kill the Unbelievers:


They have made their oaths a screen (for their evil actions). Thus they hinder (men) from the Path of Allah, so they shall have a humiliating torment.


Their children and their wealth will avail them nothing against Allah. They will be (the) dwellers of the Fire, to dwell therein forever.

Don't befriend non-Moslems:


Have you (O Muhammad SAW) not seen those (hypocrites) who take for friends a people upon whom is the Wrath of Allah (i.e. Jews)? They are neither of you (Muslims) nor of them (Jews), and they swear to a lie while they know.


Allah has prepared for them a severe tormentEvil indeed is that which they used to do

Allah hates those who conspire against Muhammad's cult:


Verily, those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) will be disgraced, as those before them (among the past nation), were disgraced. And We have sent down clear Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). And for the disbelievers is a disgracing torment.


Have you not seen those who were forbidden to hold secret counsels, and afterwards returned to that which they had been forbidden, and conspired together for sin and wrong doing and disobedience to the Messenger (Muhammad SAW). And when they come to you, they greet you with a greeting wherewith Allah greets you not, and say within themselves: "Why should Allah punish us not for what we say?" Hell will be sufficient for them, they will burn therein, and worst indeed is that destination!

Unbelievers are allies of Satan:


Shaitan (Satan) has overtaken them. So he has made them forget the remembrance of Allah. They are the party of Shaitan (Satan). Verily, it is the party of Shaitan (Satan) that will be the losers!

The above seem a clear indication of cult intolerance. The battle cry of Moslems is clearly enunciated in the following verse:


Allah has decreed: "Verily! It is I and My Messengers who shall be the victorious." Verily, Allah is All-Powerful, All-Mighty.

The El-Lah deity, invented by Muhammad to be the god of all gods, has decreed in tautological fashion, that the followers of Muhammad will prevail. Yet few question this illogical circle or the implications of the bile and hate which gushers forth from the Koran. Unbelievers are damned; doomed to hell-fire; allied with Satan; hypocrites; greedy; ignorant; rebellious; and criminal. According to clever people these pronouncements make Islam and all Moslems, sophisticated, genteel, civilized and obsessed with inter-faith harmony. This says nothing about the fantastically inane code of dealing with divorce, premised on a set of rules which reek of a pre-iron age culture.
