Reason Number 3: Infidelity

Why Convert to Islam?

If a woman is unfaithful to her husband she can be punished, often times severely such as public floggings, or her own family may put her to death for shaming them, or she may be stoned to death by her local town / village people.

Where on the other hand if a man is unfaithful, especially with a prostitute, it is forgiven.

    Where did you get this information from. Islam is fair in its punishments and lays them our clearly in the Quran, which are the same for both MEN and WOMEN.
    The punishment for adultery is one controversy among them and needs to be seriously and critically re-examined. Stoning to death for adultery is not at all a Qur’anic punishment. Qur’an prescribes hundred lashes for what it calls zina. Zina is Arabic word which means fornication, adultery as well as rape. In Arabic there are no different words as in English. This has become part of the problem. Imam Raghib defines zina as sleeping with a woman without legally marrying her.

    And the Qur’an prescribes the punishment using the word zaniyah and zani i.e. women guilty of zina and man guilty of zina which can mean all three i.e. fornication, adultery or rape. Generally translators have translated the word zaniyah and zani as adulteress and adulterer. Thus Muhammad Asad translates verse (24:2) as “As For the adulteress and the adulterer – flog each of them with a hundred stripes, and let not compassion with them keep you from [carrying out] this law of God, if you [truly] believe in God and the Last Day: and let a group of the believers witness their chastisement.” (Muhammad Asad, The Message of the Qur’an, Gibralter, 1980). Abdullah Yusuf Ali, on the other hand uses both the words adulteress and adulterer and fornicator. Thus he translates it as “The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication, flog each of them with a hundred stripes…”(Abdullah Yusuf Ali The Holy Qur’an (Hyderabad, n.d).

    Thus Qur’an is obviously referring to both adultery and fornication and does not prescribe separate punishments for fornication and adultery. Had Allah intended harsher punishment for adultery, He could have clarified that for adultery punishment would be stoning to death and for fornication hundred stripes. What could have stopped Allah from saying so? There was no separate verse needed. It could have been specified in the same verse. And even if a separate verse was needed it could have been revealed leaving no ambiguity.

    Also, the words of the verse “…and let not compassion with them keep you from [carrying out] this law of God” and also that “let a group of the believers witness their chastisement” clearly shows wrath of God for such act of illegal sex and thus flogging in itself is harshest punishment Allah prescribes and no harsher punishment should be instituted. Allah has expressed His wrath in this verse in very harsh words and so the punishment prescribed (of hundred stripes) is the harshest the Qur’an thinks of.

    the person who posted last is right. anyone reading this blog in order to gain insight into the world of Muslims and the religion of Islam should run somewhere else instead. This blog is very very inaccurate. The blogger makes these sexist statements obviously not caring about women himself and also not posting religious SOURCES for where he got is information and where you can verify it. Please visit a site like islamqa.com for more accurate information on muslims and Islam.

  7. See, all liberal pro-women's rights people. All internet muslims.

    If I could, I would convert to the culture of the peeps in afghanistan: 1) Girls are married _young_. 2) Men have multiple wives. 3) Girls are uneducated. 4) Usually a man who rapes an unmarried girl just marries that girl and pays her father by giving a girl from their family over. 5) Wives are slaves to their husband. ... However afghan culture isn't convertable to (not a religion).

    None of this other than 1 and 2 are "islamic". They are seen in biblical law though, but the pashtun muslim afghanis follow them. Also there are white girls in afghanistan.

America, you really need to think the logic out in this one.

Wait until several reasons are posted and I think you will agree with me.
