    Quran's Mistakes

    There are many errors in the Quran; many, many, many errors in the Quran. And I say that from
    a ten-feet view point. For instance, when the Quran said that the earth was flat, that was a mistake.

Women mentioned in the Quran


Q7. Host: Dr. Labib, How many women, by name, are mentioned in the Quran? (1:56)



Dr. Labib: Well, you'll be astonished to know that the only woman who is mentioned by name, in the Quran, is Mary, the mother of Jesus. And then you read the whole Quran, all 114 surat, and you'll not find any other name at all. Wives of Mohammed were not mentioned in the Quran. His mother, not mentioned in the Quran. Any other woman, his former wife, Khadijah, was not mentioned in the Quran. And that is an indication that women have no value in Islam.

Come to the Bible, and from the first beginning, you read about Eve. And then you read about Sarah, you read about Tamar, you read about Rehab, you read women of the women. We have two books in the Bible named after women, Ruth and Esther. And in the Quran, only the mother of Jesus. And this is very interesting to notice, and because of that I would say, where are the women? No value, no value! Women in Islam have no value, and this is why it says to the Muslims, "marry two, or three, or four." They are just to satisfy the desire of men, no more than that.

This statement you make comparing the bible to the Qur'an is estonishing to me. A religion that doesn't respect women in which they deserve to be treated is horrible. Is interesting to notice that many women believe in this religion that does not give them much religion. Is there family traditions and requirements that keep them from changing religions? Have there ever been changes to how women are treated? Thank you.

All those who claim that many women are mentioned by name in Qur'an, however, their names are different as they are in Arabic as lying blatantly!!! Except Mary, the mother of Jesus, no other woman is mentioned in the Qur'an, YES, not even one. They are only referred to as Wife of Adam, Wife of Pharoah etc. Their names are not mentioned. If anyone can prove this, then please mentioned the Sura and the verse where these names appear.

We must first ascertain the authenticity of the Quran as the word of God before accepting the scientific claims contained in it. The' author' of the Quran came into existence over half a century after Christianity so those claims cannot be original. Indeed Islam has no respect for women. In Africa, a Muslim can marry four wives in one day and divorce all of them the next day. Women arelocked up in purdah and therefore contribute almost nothing to the GDP of their countries. They are married off at very tender ages to very much older men only to divorce them a few years after satisfying their lusts. The number of very young divorcees in large Muslim African countries is very alarming. No matter how hard you try to argue, you cannot change the facts as contained in the Quran and the practical life as presently lived by Muslims.

The last few sentences cause much dissonance compared to what people who are Muslims say about women. What would the Islamic feminists say to this answer, I wonder.

There are many women mentioned in the Quran though they may have different names in Arabic. Eve(Hava), Sarah, Hagar(Hajirah), Jacobed(Eucabid ), etc.

To say that women not being mentioned in the Qu'ran means they have no value in the religion is a logical fallacy.

It's interesting to read this and compare it to modern feminist Muslims & looking at how Mohammed talked about females and their role in the religion.

I am glad I read the comments in this section. I found it almost impossible that not one women could or would be mentioned in the Qur'an.

This site is honestly one of the most blatantly biased websites I have been to. If one is trying to gain understanding of the differences between Christianity and Islam, I would recommend looking elsewhere. Some of these posts make me really angry because they are so against Muslims. I am Christian, but I do think it is appropriate to blatantly bash Muslims without at least providing a Muslim opinion.
