Dr. Labib: In Islam, they believe in polygamy. The man has the right to marry four women at one time. Of course you can divorce the four women, and then again marry another four women. And divorce these four women, and marry another four women, according to his wish and according to his will. Even so, I would like to say clearly that educated Muslim women do not like at all this kind of permission to the Muslim husbands. They do not like it at all! And you read it in the newspaper again, and again. When an educated woman will marry a man, she will never accept that her husband will go and marry another woman except her. Practically, the Koran is against human nature. That's one thing.
Number two, the Koran permits the husband to beat his wife, and there are lots of beatings of women legally, and I repeat, legally in Islam. And a verse in the Koran says that if you fear rebellion from women, banish them in bed, that means don't have sex with her as a punishment, and then beat them. In fact, in one of the translations, 'scourge' them. You can imagine. So if a Muslim man beats his wife, he would not feel guilty because the Koran permits him to do that. Those are some examples concerning polygamy, marrying more than one wife and the treatment of wife.
Of course, when you come to the Bible, you read the words of apostle
Paul, "Men love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave himself
for her." Do you see the difference? Love is a sacrificial gift. In the
Koran it says "beat your wife, banish her in bed." Two different standards.
Then, when you come to inheritance in the Koran, the woman, the daughter
will inherit half of what the son receives. If you have a son and a daughter,
the son will have a full inheritance. The daughter will have only half
of what your son will have. And then you go and see that you are forced
to obey the husband in such a humiliating way, because there is a verse
in the Koran that says, "Your women are till for you, so approach your
till any time you want." What does that mean? It means that the wife is
totally under the control of the husband. If he wants sex in the morning,
at , at , anytime, he just orders her. If she is tired, she is not
tired, there is no excuse. You, the wife of the Muslim, are under total
control. She has no control on the body of her husband. But if you go to
[1 Corinthians chapter 7], you read that the woman doesn't have authority
over her body, but the husband. The husband doesn't have authority over
his body but the wife, so it is equivalent. So the wife should satisfy
the husband, the husband should satisfy the wife. In Islam it's not that
way, the man is satisfied, the woman it doesn't make a difference. So you
see the standard.
So this is Islam, polygamy, divorce, the rights of the man. Beating is the right of the man. The woman is only a sex object. And that's it. Nobody can deny that because the Koran says all of this. If someone would say, "Oh, no, it's not that way." The verses in the Koran, verse after verse, after verse declare what I have said, it is all documented, fully documented.
