Women in Islam and Christianity

Islam & Christianity

Women in Islam and Christianity

We Muslims are well aware of the fact that Muslim women are

objects of derision and mockery especially in the Western world. Women in

Islam are portrayed to be "oppressed" and "inferior" by many Westerners.

However, most of the Westerners I've heard this from are usually

Christian. It is amazing how many verses the Christian bible has which

supports Islamic treatment of women, among other issues. Here is a small

list I would like to share with all of you. You will also know

that the Christian bible degrades the female sex!

Are Women Oppressed in Islam?

Hijab in Christianity and Islam

Islam: Women must cover their heads as a sign of "modesty." It also

serves as protection for the female.

Christianity: 1 CORINTHIANS 11:3-10 in the Christian bible orders women to cover their heads in prayers. These verses further state

that the male doesn't have to cover his head because"female

was made from male, and the male not from the female." It

further states that a woman covering her head is a sign of male "authority."

Conclusion: Islam and Christianity both tell women to cover their heads.

The main difference, however, is that women in Islam cover

their heads for purposes of "modesty." Christian women cover

their heads as a sign of "male authority." It is clear that

the bible gives women an inferior status, whereas Islam


Adam and Eve in Christianity and Islam

Islam: Adam and Eve (peace be upon them) were EQUALLY responsible for eating from the "forbidden tree." They both repented and were forgiven

by the Most-Forgiving and Most-Merciful Allahu ta'ala.

Christianity: Eve ate from the "forbidden tree" BEFORE Adam did. Adam ate from the tree AFTER Eve did. The woman was deceived FIRST.

Because of EVE causing Adam to sin by eating from the

forbidden tree, the ground is "cursed." God doesn't

forgive them, but damns them and humanity -- thanks to

Eve (the woman)! ALL females go through "pains of

childbearing" as a punishment from God -- because of EVE'S

sin. All males have to go through pains of eating from the

ground, thanks to EVE. ALL babies are born in SIN, thanks

to EVE. All of this can be found in GENESIS 2:4-3:24.

"Adam was not decieved but the woman was" (1 TIMOTHY


"Woman will be ruled over by the male" (GENESIS 3:16)

In other words, thanks to a FEMALE, we are damned!

It is clear that in Christianity, the very first woman

is blamed for wrongdoing, but not the very first male.

Islam: Quran orders us that we should not "bury daughters alive."

Christianity: -"The birth of a daughter is a loss" (ECCLESIASTICUS 22:3,

Catholic Bible)

- Ritual impurity of a mother is TWICE as long if a female

is born and not a male. (LEVITICUS 12:2-5)

Is it not clear that Islam again gives a higher status to females? What

Islam came to eradicate -- the bad treatment of females -- still

continues in today's Protestant and Catholic scriptures.


ISLAM: Women can talk in the mosque.

CHRISTIANITY: -"It is a shame for women to talk in the church."

(1 CORINTHIANS 14:34-35)

If females cannot talk, then how are they supposed to learn? Again, it is

obvious that Islam gives the female a higher status than the bible does.


ISLAM: If the husband dies, then the wife may marry another male by


CHRISTIANITY: If the husband dies without impregnating the wife, then

the "brother" of the dead husband MUST marry his wife.

The female CANNOT marry anyone else, but ONLY her dead

husband's brother (DEUTERONOMY 25:5).

Islam gives the woman a choice to marry or not, and to whom she want to

marry, if her husband dies. In Christianity (and Judaism), the woman has

NO CHOICE, but to marry her dead husband's brother. It is clear which

religion is oppressing women.


Other Interesting Similarities:


ISLAM: Cut off the hand if it steals - of course specific conditions


CHRISTIANITY: "If your hand sins, it is better to cut it off instead

of going to hell with both hands" (MARK 9:43)

If any Christian tells us we Muslims are CRUEL in punishing, then state

this verse to them. In fact, the bible also tells one to "PLUCK YOUR EYE

OUT" if it sins!


ISLAM: Stripes for the one who is drunk - conditions apply.

CHRISTIANITY: The judge may order the unjust man to be STRIPED



ISLAM: Muslims pray by prostrating and putting forehead on the ground.

CHRISTIANITY: "Jesus fell on his face and prayed...(MATTHEW 26:39)

The churches have even changed the way Jesus prayed!


ISLAM: Allows a male to marry more than one wife, up to four --

conditions apply.

CHRISTIANITY: -Abraham had 3 wives in the bible: Sarah, Hagar, and

Keturah.(In book of GENESIS)

-Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines.

(1 KINGS 11:3)

-David had many wives (2 SAMUELS 5:13)

Nowhere in the bible does it forbid polygamy, or says that the male must

marry one woman. Single marriage is a Greco-Roman tradition -- one of the

many influences on the true teachings of Jesus.


ISLAM: Kills the apostate if he doesn't repent and return to Islam.



ISLAM: Cannot SELL your daughter.

CHRISTIANITY: You can sell your daughter (EXODUS 21:7)


ISLAM: Muslims cannot eat pig.

CHRISTIANITY: "Do not eat pig meat or touch their dead flesh"



Is there really anything the Christian (or Jew if verses are from the

first 5 books of the Old Testament) can mock Islam about, that's not in

their book? When they refute Islam, they are actually refuting their own


All verses are taken from the KING JAMES version of the bible. Please

verify and confirm these verses with other in other versions. They have

changed a lot! The verse, "The birth of a daugher is a loss"(ECCLESIASTICUS 22:3) is from the CATHOLIC BIBLE.

Other interesting tid-bits:

_ Pornography in Bible

(Genesis 35:22, Genesis 38:15-18,

2 Samuels 11:1, 2 Samuels 16:11-14,

Eziekel 23:1-49, etc)

- "Noah drank wine, got DRUNK, and lay NAKED in his tent!"

(GENESIS 9:21)


- "Sacrifice your ONLY SON" (GENESIS 22:2).

If any son could be called "only son," it could only

be ISHMAEL, because he was born before Isaac!

- "The father is greater than I" (JOHN 14:28)

Jesus is not God if the "father is greater."

- Jesus is called a PROPHET (LUKE 24:19)

(All verses from KING JAMES version)
