I received the following response to one of my post. It is from a person named Abdulbasit I. Gari. He seems to be under the belief that men are, or were not, punished by God for adultery. He further claims that God did not punish Lot for sleeping with his daughters:
I don’t see a problem with having a good Sexual Appetite. It reflects the nature of Human being.
I have a problem with how to satisfy this sexual appetite. The bible showed us how the prophets are sexually active. Don’t be a shamed if you have Sexual potentials.
The Shame comes from the way you express your sex life.
This is the problem with the bible (Genesis 19:31-35) A prophet (Lot) who is respected by God and Angles Sleep with his two daughters. This is really sick.
Or the other Prophet and the Grand mother of Jesus who was his daughter in law? (Genesis 38: 15-18) (of course as muslims, we believe all these are lies)
In the bible, only the women get punished for adultery (Genesis 38) and all the guys are free to do what ever suit their appetite. In Islam, Men as Women shall be Punished for adultery:
“The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication flog each of them with a hundred stripes: let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah, if ye believe in Allah and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment.” (Quran 24-2)
Muhammad the human being, has his sexual appetite but he did it in acceptable manner. If this manner was not accept in his culture, his message weren’t reached to the Roman Empire and Persian Empires
Of course, yours truly, fired this response back: Thou shall not commit adultery, as stated in the 10 Commandments, applies to men and women. And God did not condone Lot’s sleeping with anyone but his wife.
If I am not mistaken, one of allah’s wives was a pre-teen. Let’s talk about sick? Look at how women today are treated in Muslim countries, and compare them to western societies, the USA specifically. Sorry, allah and Islam don’t think much of women, now do they?
The Bible, being the Word of God, is also like a newspaper of that day, reporting facts, and just because something is written in the paper, does not always mean it is condone by the editor/reporter.
It is also my opinion that saying women are treated better by the Islamic world, compared to mostly Christian majority nation, is laughable, if not for its seriousness.
So my Christian friends, what say you to Abdul?
