Three Biggest Lies About Islam

  • Muslims worship a Moon God

Some Arab tribes worshiped the moon as it is a guide to the people, a calming nerve, and a beam of light to the caravans of merchants, unlike the sun, which paralyzes movement during the day and kills those exposed to its glowing rays in the height of summer. All of that happened before coming of Islam religion that called to worship Allah alone, without partner.

  • All Muslima are Arabs

“Arab” term is different from the “Muslim” term. The first term refers to people who speaks Arabic language as a native language, in contrast Muslim term refers to people who convert to Islam religion. Some people thinks that all Muslims are Arab but the fact is that fewer than 15 percent of Muslims worldwide are Arabs. The majority of Muslims live outside the Middle East, in places like Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, India, and Pakistan. The real relation is that Arabic language is the primary language of Islam and Quran and Sunnah. Some Arabs are Christians also not all of them Muslims.

  • Islam oppresses Women

Islam cares about women and the verses of the Qur’an and the Prophetic Sunnah prove that. “And [God says:] ‘We have enjoined upon man goodness towards his parents: his mother bore him by bearing strain upon strain, and his utter dependence on her lasted two years” { Luqman. 31} most important to mention that Islam came to apply justice among people. It canceled the practice of female infanticide, the oppression of the widow after the death of her husband, it also gives woman the right to get a share of inheritance ( you can see these articles Woman Status in Islam and Suspicions and falsehoods of Islam opponents about the inheritance of women . Woman in Islam get her rights as a mother, wife, daughter or sister. Amr bin Al-Ahwas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: I enjoin you to treat women well, for they are like captives in your hand. Verily, you may not treat them otherwise unless they commit flagrant immorality. If they do so, then you may separate from their beds and strike them without causing pain but if they return to good conduct, then you may do nothing against them. You have rights over your wives and they have rights over you. Your right is that they will not allow anyone you dislike to enter your home, and their right is that you should treat them well regarding food and clothing.
