What Does the Koran Say about Women as compared to the Bible?


What Does the Koran Say about Women as compared to the Bible?

The Koran has some interesting things to say about women. My first concern is this passage on The Women in [4.34] Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great. As an advocate for victims of sexual and domestic violence, I would say the Koran is promoting locking women up and beating them into subservience and obedience.  Maybe this is why domestic violence in the Muslim community is high. Some say that almost 90% of Muslim women are beaten and abused because of minor infractions against their husbands’ unreasonable demands and for reasons as simple as having a female child, which science has proven is decided by the male. I know personally of two Muslim women who were beaten and abused by their husbands, whose husbands considered this normal behavior. Clearly God (Yahweh) would not promote this kind of behavior in the Christian community. The Christian scriptures teach us to submit to one another in love, not to beat each other into submission.

Another concern I have is this position on marrying more than one wife in [4.3] And if you fear that you cannot act equitably towards orphans, then marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four; but if you fear that you will not do justice (between them), then (marry) only one or what your right hands possess; this is more proper, that you may not deviate from the right course. The Christian Scriptures teach that marriage is between one man and one woman.  Though there were men who had more than one wife in the Bible, this was never God ordained, but was an invention of man, against God’s design.
Lastly I am concerned about this passage in [4.15] And as for those who are guilty of an indecency from among your women, call to witnesses against them four (witnesses) from among you; then if they bear witness confine them to the houses until death takes them away or Allah opens some way for them. This confining of a woman to her house until death, even if she was guilty of some indecent offence, seems quite radical to me, and is clearly a form of domestic violence.

Muhammad also was said to have married a six year old girl named Aisha when she was only six years old and to have consummated the marriage when she was only nine years old.  The Ayatollah Khomeini told his followers that to marry a young girl before she started her period was a divine blessing.  This is nothing more than pedophilia in a religious disguise.  Any man, including Muhammad, who would have sex with a child is committing childhood sexual abuse and is pure evil and of Satan.

If these are the kinds of things that Muslims believe, practice, and promote, through their Koran and their religious system, then I don’t see how anyone could support this kind of dogma in today’s world.  I feel for Muslim women, who may be in these kinds of domestic and sexual violence situations without any recourse or relief.  I thank God for giving us a more evenhanded Christian Scripture and for a Christ who treated women with the utmost respect and never condoned any kind of violence toward them.

Women in Christian Ministry

A Journey of Faith

Authored by Sis. Kimberly M. Hartfield

Women in Christian Ministry is the culmination of my writings on women’s ministry and related topics of concern. It is a reflection of my personal journey into Christian Ministry and my search for truth in questions concerning a woman’s place in ministry, types of ministry, and whether or not she should be ordained for that purpose. It was an answer to God’s calling on my life and God’s confirmation of that calling. I hope that my journey of faith may help you in your search for truth and encourage you in your calling. This book includes samples of a Baptism, Wedding, and Funeral ceremony. God bless to all!

Don’t be Silent: Stop Domestic Violence

About mamaheartfilled

I am a mother of eight wonderfully challenging children and nine grandkids, of whom I am very proud. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. I have endeavored to paraphrase the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, for the last ten years or so and am working on a final edit, now. It is my hope that it will be of some use in the great commission of Christ. My ministry is primarily geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community around the world. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
