An old hadith crossed my mind a few days ago:
Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (radiya Allahu ‘anh), that the Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“A husband’s right upon his wife is such that if he had an ulcer and she licked it for him, she would not fulfil his right by that.”
Anas (radiya Allahu ‘anh), that the Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“It is not permissible for a human being to prostrate to another human being. Were it permissible for a human being to prostrate to another human being, I would have commanded the woman to prostrate to her husband because of his great right upon her. By the One in Whose hand is my soul, if he (the husband) had, from his feet to the top of his head, an ulcer oozing blood and pus, and she came to lick it off for him, she would not have fulfilled his right.”
I don’t know what made these ahadith cross my mind but I felt the need to put them here because it shows the real face of Islam and not the candy-coated version that Saudi Arabia tries to portray in order to gain approval to spread Islam all over the world.
These were some of the first ahadith I read in the early days as young Muslim women are immediately herded into marriage. They were the also some of the first hadith that made me almost denounce Islam shortly after I had accepted it. I had no intention of licking any man’s pus, I don’t care what any “god” said. Eventually the cover-ups started coming in and claims that these ahadith were metaphorical only in order to show the importance of a woman’s subservience to her husband.
Females were not allowed to vote in any U.S. masjid activities as late as the 90s. They could donate their cash but could not have a say in a matters of the masjid. Muslimahs complained and eventually these rules were overturned. I don’t think it had anything to do with women protesting though. I think the masajid feared losing their non-profit status if they didn’t let women vote and probably some orders came from Saudi to let them vote in order to not make Islam look bad. Best believe if a full blown shariah were ever implemented then those “rights” would be immediately stripped and revoked.
All was not lost during my time spent as a Muslim. Islam works by deception and those years allowed me the chance to see its true nature and not the fake picture that Arabs try to show. What I find odd is that liberals and feminists will rail night and day against Christianity but will fight to death to protect Islam. This is not an argument for Christianity but an observation of how lopsided these people are.
They will stand in “solidarity” to defend a belief system that requires all women to dress as the woman in the picture from puberty until she is too old to be desired by men but somehow find a problem with Trump. Riiggghhhhttttt……
Feminists and liberals are some of the most ass-backwards, regressive, violent loons anyone will have the misfortune of meeting. Undercover Islamic organizations such as CAIR use them as donkeys and mules to quietly usher in Islam little-by-little, step-by-step. These ahadith should be an eye-opener to the real destructive nature of Islam.
