“Is Islam a Tolerant Religion?”

“Then there is a great deal to say about discrimination against women. In spite of the fact that women don’t differ from men except physiologically, and possess the same intellectual abilities, and in some instances even surpass men in such gifts, women in Islam are considered as ‘deficient in mind and religion.’ The testimony of a woman in the courts is worth only half a man’s testimony. The same thing pertains in matters of inheritance, for a ‘man’s portion is worth as much as two women’s portions.’ When it comes to the rights of a divorced woman, her husband is responsible for her needs for three months only. In fact, a woman’s status is on par with animals. This classification is supported by an authentic hadith, ‘A man’s prayer is nullified when a dog, or a donkey, or a woman, happens to pass by.’ Please tell me, is this a manifestation of a spirit of tolerance?

The above is from is an interesting article that examines tolerance in Islam. You can read the whole text here

    some real bad Muslims were beating the son of a woman and killing him. she decides her only help is God. She prays to him, "god save my son, you can only save him now. please god help him". Then she goes on and on. Finally, god says to her. "Lady how can I save your son, when I could not save my own son. They beat him to death too" ..... now you will tell me "Jesus died for others"? with his blood he saved others, bla bla. And that makes sense to you? Go read guys. But from what will you read? Bibles been changing like software versions. And even the cross; who invented the cross? who invented the church? who told you Jesus was a son of god? some "saint"? So who is god? the saint? If we are to talk about you guys we can say a whole lot more. More shit then you can ever think of. So stop this. You guys are just trying to create problems here. Just follow your faith and let us live with ours. We already have enough problems with the vahhaabees and mulla's we don't need more from the crusaders at this moment.

    you guys seem to hate islam with passion. do u wonder about the blind?deaf? mentally disabled people ? they are unfortunate too, life is not fair for them either. womens rights? mens rights? inequalities ? women ,men and everything in this world is created by one. the fact that u yourself exist is proof that god exists. why arent u attacking other religious beliefs? why pick on islam ?u feel threatened by islam?
    why do women give birth ? it shows the place islam has given women, being able to be a mother. the attachment of a child to its mother are beyond words. Nomatter what you say u cant change the fact that women are indeed different from men. the one who created all created them like that, and you cant change it no matter how frustrating it is for you.Yes life is not fair , its the way it is and there's nothing you can do to change it, cause you cant challenge god, the ability for you to pick on islam is even given by god,your mind functions in your body cause ur time is yet not up. YOU people who write this blog , you are alive cause you are being created by god and when ur time is up you return to allah. there is nothing you can do about it.YOU cant interveiw god , nor can you come up with anything better than the ways allah has planned. If you believe in christianity or whatever other religion it is, im sure it wud give others the freedom of choosing the religion they want to believe.so why pick on muslims.There is nothing muslims in maldives can do about goverment not letting people practise other religions in maldives.

    mariyam,
    I dont agree. We were not created by Allah. We were created by the Big Bang.
    1400 years ago an illiterate arab in the desert said that he was getting messages from a "thing" that calls himself Allah. Fools can believe that if they want, but its not for me.
    AND YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO FORCE IT ON ME.
    Mohammed decapitated entire tribes and sold their women and children into slavery. He made cruel and stupid laws regarding women. He practically made them into animals to be bought and sold as property. And fools like you believe that all this elevates the status of women.
    The attachment of a child to its mother are beyond words. And it happens to be something called DNA.
    Wake up and use your brain.

    anonymous, i am really awake and using my brain..what uve written in bold is quite funny since i dont have any intention of forcing anything on anyone.you seem to have a problem with islam , i havent picked on what u believe & dont have any intention to either. just because mohamed's life was not documented and i cant have an interveiw with allah dont make me wanna leave the religion i have choosen. call it following islam blindly or whatever. quran is proof of the existence of allah, and it is for people who think and want to know more.
    if you really think that the attachment a child have with its mother is only the genetic dissemination of most inherited traits,then i shouldnt be bothered to write any further.

    mariyam,
    all species have the bond between mother and child written into their dna. This accounts for the protectiveness in mothers towards their children. In certain species like some reptiles this is not in their dna and so they will turn on their own babies and eat them.
    And you will find that this bond is there in all primates regardless of race or religious belief. Hindhus, Buddhists, Christians etc etc all love their children. How they treat their children may differ due to culture which is a learned experience.

    Mohammeds life was documented. It is called the Siyarath. You can hear it on the radio every Ramazan and 90% of Maldivians are familiar with it.
    And I would like to read your comments on the hadith in the posting - ‘A man’s prayer is nullified when a dog, or a donkey, or a woman, happens to pass by.’
