Jihad & Life Standards
Q5. Host: You mentioned the seed of the woman. Do you think that maybe why women are so oppressed among the Islam? (1:20)
Dr. Labib: Well, I think that when they say, when the Bible says 'the seed of the woman' of course, it was mentioning Mary as the mother of Jesus. But the Koran did not mention any name of any woman, because woman has no value in Islam. Period! Who are the wives of Mohammed? You know, you go to the Bible and you read about David, and you will read about the names of every wife of David. You go to Jacob, you know Rachel and Leah. Anyone, in fact, when you go to the book of 1 Kings, and 2 Kings, when the Bible mentions the name of the king, it says, "he was the son of that woman," and mentions the name of that woman, not the father, the woman, the mother. You see, because women have value in Christianity and Judaism. In Islam no value, that is very plain.
