Very like this. Thanks MLady. I'm muslim too.

Continued from below >> ...or find a woman who is willing to sleep with him (fornication); and both of these are harmful in the long run to oneself and society, and both are forbidden in Islam. Another thing is that both genders have a responsibility, it is not only women, men also have to lower their gaze around women. So both are commanded to do that which would greatly decrease the problem of promiscuity, sexual harrassement, and adultry; and protect family life, which in turn produces a healthier society.

Regarding man's desire for women (intimacy,NOT rape) : the reason why God created strong desire in man for women is for human life to continue. If man did not have desire for women, then there wouldn't be sex, and if no sex, there wouldn't be reproduction >> end of humanity. Regarding the dress code (hijab). When a woman wears revealing clothing or ones that show shape of her body and her beauty, especially things which make men excited, it would make the man either turn to porn and masturbation to relieve his strong desire, or .....

@king, I did not even mention rape in my strip, did you read it? And about rape, many rape cases do not specifically happen due to the way a women dresses, and desiring rape is not normal. In other than the time of war (in which rape happens due to hate and revenge), most rape cases are related to people whom the victim knows. Such as a relative, or a friend, or a boyfriend, or a neighbor and such. While getting raped by a stranger on the street is something that does not happen often, according to statistics in the USA. So it includes several factors.

i know that the main reason is to prevent them from being sexual objects, but why made god man to feel desired towards the female body so much that they would do rape??? i think it would be allot better if everyone was able to dress the way they liked and we wouldn't be made ''to feel desire to rape others''

Abercrombie & Fitch firing a Muslim woman for wearing her hijab because it went against their "look policy." The fact that this even happened in the first place is just awful.

In regards to culture, when Islam came, it forbid a lot of the bad practices in Arab culture, which were also found in some other cultures, and replaced them with just laws including things related to women, such as giving them their share of inheritance, and allowing them to own property, and forbidding the killing of infant girls ... etc.

You are doing a great job at showing us that Islam can be a great faith for those who want to honor and follow. As with all Faiths. the basics seem to be the same but the extremeists and the manipulators seem to warp and twist and pick and choose what to follow. This happens in all Religions. I think it is because many people just use religion to contol others. How do we protect people from Extreme behavior? Education. and again it is ALL Religions that can problematic if controlled by Extreme groups.

Feb 25th

I do love your series and I believe that if people really do follow all aspects of their faith, no mater which faith, that they are able to look at things with open eyes rather than follow blindly becuause someone said they should. Culture and Religion are so intertwined it is difficult to separate. Many laws in religion are written to explain and support cultural behaviors. I think we are getting to the point where we all can see this, but I think the extremists of any religion use this to manipulate.Look at what is happening in Uganda, Christian groups haved fanned the flames against Gays.

Feb 25th

I beldieve my comments are more about the general nature of MEN and how they control and manipulate many aspects of religion and culture, no mater which religion and which culture. History is full of examples, and there are alway some that are either better or worse than the average. and you did say " Even if a man controls himself physically, he cannot control himself mentally, so even if he did not touch her, he would fantasize about her in his mind, and end up looking for porn and masturbation" I am concerened that too many people let bad things happen and justify it thru Religion.

Feb 25th

Lastly, please differentiate between Islam and culture, many cutltural practices in Muslim nations are NOT in accordance to Islamic teachings. Often times they go against Islamic teachings. Islam does not teach to "lock up" women, nor force them in arranged marriages, nor to forbid them from education, nor sell them to men ...etc.

Feb 25th

Also, why is it that in the west where men are "taught" to control themselves, many don't control themselves? According to statistics, the VAST majority of rape cases in the US were committed by men whom their victims know personally and often close to them, including boyfriends, and even male family members ?! Only a very small percentage of rapists were strangers! There is also tons of sexual harrassment cases in the US, so where is the control that you are telling us to teach our men?

Feb 25th

I also did NOT say that Muslim men have a pass to do as they please, if you read my comment correctly, you would have seen that've I've said the opposite. A Muslim man is never allowed to touch women, harrass them, or even have sex with them with their consent outside of marriage, and a women dressing immodestly is NO excuse, as men are commanded to lower their gave and have patience, but women are also commanded to dress modestly. in other words, what I said is the opposite of what you claimed I said.

Feb 25th

Firstly I did NOT say that Muslim men cannot control themselves physically, many if not most Muslim men do not have sex until after marriage, while many if not most non-Muslim western men have sex with several women, and many betray their wives and sleep with other women, and they are given a free ticket to have sex as they please as long as the other party consents to it and he's single, while in Islam, a man cannot freely have sex, except with his wife. See this article titled "Hindus and Musilms Most likely to abstain from premarital sex " http://www.h

also I guess "dressing modestly" has a compleley different meaning in different cultures. not too long ago even in western cultures, seeing an exposed ankle was a scandal! LOL

Feb 24th

You say that Muslim men can't control themselves physically or mentaly. they have not been taught to control themselves, but are given a pass with a wink and a pat on the back, "it's ok you have no control you are not civilised but just a victim of your lust, so we will protect you from seeing them". If you are taught that men and women are so weak, why no effort made to educate them on proper behavior, it becomes a self fulfilling prophesy. you behave as you are expected to..so why not teachhow to deal with the reality. We ae attracted to each other for a reason but learn to control it.

Feb 24th

I believe that in a culture where marrages are arranged, and the young people must not communicate and girls must not be seen, is a way for men to control the situation. Girls were separated, not allowed education, hidden untill they were given or sold to a man to be a wife. Dressing modestly does not meen being put in a sack, if so then men should do the same, if they are equal, women should be able to dress as the men are allowed to. I believe the rape statistics are as high as other cultures but rarely reported http://www.t

(continuation of the below comment) ... or even sleeping with women out of marriage in order to relieve his himself. And I don't understand the problem that people have with hijab. What's wrong with women dressing modestly? Hijab was never a barrier that stopped women from living their lives. Muslim women can still get an education, work, and have a good life.

Feb 24th

Also, you need to remember that it is part of human nature to be strongly attracted to the other gender physically, and its stronger in men, so in order to protect society from vice and immorality, Islam has a dress code for women, and has commanded men to lower their gaze. It would not be fair to only command men to control themselves, and let women do as they please and dress as they please. Even if a man controls himself physically, he cannot control himself mentally, so even if he did not touch her, he would fantasize about her in his mind, and end up looking for porn and masturbation...

Feb 24th

Islam is just and commands both genders to be modest and act modestly. Islam does not only give commands to women. Islam also commands men to lower their gaze, and in Islam, men are not allowed to touch women even if the women is naked in the street. Meaning that a man would be a sinner if they did, and the woman being naked cannot be used as an excuse, but the woman who is dressed immodestly would also be sinning for dressing immodestly. In other words, both are accountable for their actions.

Feb 24th

To me it seems it would be better to teach these men to behave properly to women dressed normally, that to allow men to behave like animals that cannot control their lust just because they see a woman. are all men taught that they have no control so women must hide themselves? It seems that it is the men who should hide away since they are the ones causing all the problems. I blame pretty much all the worlds trouble on men..LOL.

Feb 24th

you dare to make a drees like hijab?

Feb 21st

God created man and women the way He created them in order to be attracted to each other and pro-create for mankind to continue to exist, and to fulfill different roles in life that complete each other. As for your second point. I could say the same about atheism. If atheism was the truth, does that mean the majority of the people on earth who believe in one god or another, wrong ? To me, your argument is more emotions than reason, because the truth is not measured by numbers.

Feb 7th

why did god gave woman an appearance then? and btw if islam is right, then over 5 billion people are wrong. so you are telling me that all the other women who don't wear it will be punished?

allah Is not GOD and never will be allah is a faulse idol!

Jan 8th

Hijab is obligatory, so if a muslim woman choosed not to wear it, she will be sinning.

Jan 7th

Dont muslim women have a choice to wear a hajab or not ??

Jan 6th

I plan on making a strip about women in Islam soon, insha Allah (by God's Will)

Jan 6th

If you mean "wives", then it depends on the husband, some husbands don't mind their wives working. Islam doesn't forbid women from working as long as it is a job that does not include anything impermissable such as prostitution and such.

Jan 6th

BTW I heard that muslims dont let there wides go to work is that true??

In Islam people are not segragated by race or nationality. Every Muslim,, regardless of race or nationality is welcome at any Mosque. BUt you might find some Mosques that have a majority of one ethnicity or nationality for one reason or another. But if you see a Mosque that only accepts a specific race or nationality, then that is not Islamic. Such an action goes against Islamic teachings.

Jan 1st

Do all muslim ppl go to the same mosques like EX:Turkish and others that don't look the same but are muslim??

Jan 1st

@MLady, Thanks!

Dec 26th

Halal meat is meat that we are allowed to eat, and your friend was probably talking about meat from animals that were slaughtered the Islamic way.

Dec 24th

Ma friends muslim and i am half sikh he told me that he can only eay (Halhal meat) what does that mean i serched it up and it said food that has been prayed on.BTW(NOT TO BE RACIST) THNKS

Dec 24th

She would be a sinner, and will be accountable for it in front of God, like other sins, though some sins are more major than other sins, and the sin of not wearing hijab is not a small one .

Dec 18th

Interesting! I have a question, what happens if a muslim woman doesn't want to wear the veil? What happens then?

Dec 18th

@Matt, I will try to explain it more simply. A Muslim woman is to cherish her beauty and save it for the man who will be her true lover and companion, which is her husband, and not display it in public for random men to see it and have bad thoughts about her. Its also to protect her from the minds of evil men who might target her for her beauty. Another reason is so that others, will treat and judge her for who she is, her personality and character and not her looks. It also helps her respect her body, and make others respect her. There is more, but I think this should be enough for now.

Dec 10th

Basically why we need to wear it for, say it simpler to me

Dec 9th

which part do you need me to clarify more @Matt ?
