12 Strange Muslim Rules

Sunday

THE FOLLOWING is a list of twelve odd facts about Islam — a list I found at IslamRevealed.com:

1. It is a sin to pluck your eyebrows.

2. It is against Islamic doctrine to have pictures in your home.

3. If a Muslim wife refuses to wear a veil, others will see her as her husband's slave rather than his wife.

4. The punishment for having unmarried sex is whipping with a hundred lashes and then being exiled for a year.

5. Getting into Paradise is usually not a sure thing. Your good deeds must outweigh your bad deeds, but who knows for sure if they do? But there are three things you can do to
guarantee you'll make it to Paradise: a) killing a non-Muslim in battle, b) if two of your children were killed fighting for Allah, or c) memorizing the ninety-nine names of Allah.

6. Allah not just allows, but
encourages Muslims to deceive non-Muslims if it will further the goals of spreading Islam.

7. Women are not allowed to wear hair extensions or a wig.

8. Wearing the color yellow is forbidden.

9. A Muslim must avoid yawning. Mohammad said, "Yawning is from Satan."

10. Dogs should be killed. All dogs.

11. Mohammad recommended women breastfeed young men. Then the men are considered family and would be allowed to talk to the woman unveiled. However, once she breastfed him, he would not be allowed to marry her.

12. It is a sin to lie on your back and cross your feet.

13. Mohammad believed the devil spends the night in the interior of the nose, and must be washed out each day. The practice is called wudu. I call it 'whatever.'
Remember, everything that Mohammad spoke and believed came from Allah.

Honestly!!!

for a moment i was going to give your website some credibility. Even i know that these are wrong.

WOW ... come on even i know this is not the correct Islam...

ahhhh the strange things one finds on internet.

Citizen Warrior 11:45 AM  

And how do you "know" this is not the "correct" Islam? Have you read "Reliance of the Traveller?" Have you even read the Koran?

Anonymous 6:44 PM  

This stuff is all a lie. Just a scam by Muslim haters to try and convince people of stupid things! Look up the real stuff people!!!!

Anonymous 6:52 PM  

Yes, yes I have.

Citizen Warrior 12:31 AM  

These are petty compared to the important principles of Islam. Obviously, I didn't write them. But I did write these:

Basic Principles of Islam

Whether a Muslim woman is allowed to pluck her eyebrows is unimportant. But whether a Muslim believes it is his sacred duty to enforce Islam's supremacy worldwide is quite important to those of us who do not wish to be Muslims.

Of course, if you've read the Koran and the Reliance of the Traveller, you are well aware of the danger that orthodox Islamic ideology poses to non-Muslims.

Noon 11:24 AM  

Hello. I know I will be attacked excessively but I am Muslim Liberal Female (still in college and fiercely advocating free-speech and women's rights). I've been involved in several political and environmental movements and I just want to clarify some of the things mentioned on the list and in the comment.
Off the bat, numbers 3, 6, 8 and 10 are completely incorrect and fabricated. They might be taken from some extremist renegade pseudo-Islamic group but they are not practiced.
Keep in mind as you read this, I am merely explaining the circumstances behind these laws so that Muslims and Islam cannot be framed as barbaric and Savage. There is no us vs. them here. This is a war between people that just happen to be of different religions. Ascribing hate to a person (enemy or not) using their most recognizable difference is xenophobic prejudice. If you want to find an enemy in this, it should be hate and ignorance.

Noon 11:25 AM  

I will try to explain the rest and put it in context because many religious decrees from all religions seem absurd if not reviewed in the right context.
1. This goes to a point in history where many women used to completely shave off their eyebrows (much like women of the Victorian era). The act was a clear sign of the willingness of women to mutilate their God-given beauty (and sometimes health) for vanity. I would equate it to if the FDA banned bleaching creams off the US markets today because of their damage.
2. The second law is a little strange when viewed from the eyes of today's world. It was put in to prevent idol worshiping because a lot of Muslims believe that many nations before us started off by innocently displaying pictures and statues of virtuous men for the sake of honoring them. This however evolved to beseeching or viewing them as a way to implore God. At the end, it was transformed completely from its original purpose to worship.
4. Number 4 is partially incorrect since exile is not permissible for women in Islam. However, if you look at Christianity or most other religions of the world at that time, having pre-marital sex was considered a sin. And to be honest, many people of different religions still consider it to be so.
5. a) In battle it is permissible to kill (not children/ women/ the elderly, also not allowed to loot/pillage/ defile holy places/ torture/ mistreat prisoners/ rape/ force anyone to do anything they do not wish to including convert to Islam). Why this is said to almost ensure entry into heaven is because of the mere fact that you were willing to put your life (and worse so, your children's lives) in danger for your beliefs. Part c is partially incorrect. If that was the case, I would be walking around feeling pretty secure.

Noon 11:25 AM  

7. This isn't a sin but it is not desired. This goes back to the same reason as number 1. It reflects excessive vanity and changing the way you were born. To be honest, I came across many women (particularly black women) who wish they didn't have to wear a weave or relax their hair to fit in. The stigma is stuck with them and their children, not to mention media. So many have opted to with their natural hair and re-learn how to deal with it after years of hiding behind wigs and weaves.
9. This is also partially wrong. Yawning is a human bodily function and anyone who says you can't yawn might as well tell you to not sneeze. It's human. What is not desirable, however, is yawning without covering your mouth. Same rule applied to sneezing, coughing and burping. These rules were decreed at a time where humans did not understand how disease was spread so it is pretty amazing to see rules like these that cared for hygiene.
11. This is also partially wrong. Young MEN shouldn't breastfeed. Any idiot knows that. This rule applies only to children. It dates back to a time where not many women survived child birth and even more had to leave their children behind when they went out for work. They would leave their children with a trustworthy woman with children of her own (which meant she was still lactating). This baby sitter would sometimes feed the children along with her own children. And if you were a child and feed from a lady, I don't think you would have any mind to marry her or her children because you were literally fed from the same tit. She would be considered an aunt. This particular point is interesting when looked at from a scientific point of view because many of the enzymes found in breast milk are known to contain antigens for diseases the feeder had. And recent discoveries in science and genetics,proved that we are attracted (through pheromones) to people who have different antigens than us. So scientifically, you shouldn't be attracted to the women who breast feed you, that is if common sense fails you at this point.
Again, I am just a girl, no different that most of you. All I'm saying is that Islam isn't the problem just like I want to tell atheists that Christianity isn't the problem. It's the way it's applied by its followers.

Noon 11:29 AM  

Just to clear out last doubts, I have read the Quran and Hadith (sayings and conversations of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH)), in addition to taking multi-cultural multi-religious classes on Islamic studies.
Also, there is a version of the Quran (notice the Q) called Koran (with a K), which I assume is what you are referring.

Noon 11:36 AM  

Also, to Mr. River Fred. Wudu is ablution defined as: the act of washing one's self. This is done directly before prayers (along with changing one's clothes to a cleaner attire). This is done out of respect of course. So it has nothing to do with devils in noses (which is untrue). I would love to know your sources on this anecdote.
Best Regards.

In the koran, why does it say its ok for men to rape woman if they are showing their skin??

Citizen Warrior 12:07 PM  

It doesn't say in the Koran that it is okay for men to rape women, whether they are showing their skin or not.

You should, like every other non-Muslim, read the Koran yourself. It is the best way to understand Islam, and will give you a powerful authority when you talk to your fellow non-Muslims about Islam.

Some versions are easier to read than others. Here are my recommendations:

Not one of your 12 rules are from the Quran. I challenge anyone to show me a verse from Quran which authenticates any of these. These are all from Hadith or Saudi scholars maybe. Not God. Get your facts straight. I'm Muslim and I only follow Quran. Not this crap you listed.

Citizen Warrior 12:32 AM  

Do you realize our audience is non-Muslims? And you say you only follow the Koran? I assume that means you also follow the teachings in the Koran about intolerance toward non-Muslims:

ناتشيــــبا إسلام 9:17 AM  

ok, to clarify things, i'm a muslim and i'm studying MY faith from AUTHENTIC sources.
1- yes it's a sin to pluck your eyebrows.
for both man and women and that goes under changing the creation of God.
2- yes it's a sin to have pictures of "animated beings" in a muslim's house, such as human, animals.
3- from where did you get that?? you've got to be kidding. to be a WIFE you must be free therefor you can't be a slave. but if ANY woman refuses to wear the veil she have sinned.
4- yes you're right on that one. i'm impressed. but not so much though btw, because before all that happens you forgot that there must be four witnesses who are known of their righteous manners (e.i def not liars), and who's the idiot to have illegal sex with 4 righteous witnesses watching the "whole" process?? from snogging to you know what?? (-_-)Zz
5- what a collection you picked mister ROFL :D and you didn't mention obeying one's parents, and the good manners that weigh heavily on the day of judgent, or to guide someone to the truth "Islam", or for the woman (The Prophet said:“If a woman prays her five daily prayers, guards her honour and chastity, and obeys her husband, then she may enter Jannah through whichever one of its entrances she chooses.” [Sahih Ibn Hibban]) and SOOOOO many other things but i really don't mean to write an article on each point :D.
6- no way man !! please do well and give me your source :/
it is not from the Islamic manners to cheat and lie to muslims and non-muslims alike.
7- yup that's true.
same ruling as #1 .
8- dude i have yellow clothes!! are you serious?
we're allowed to wear anything as long as it doesn't resemble the non-muslims and if it wasn't for fame.
9- yup, but YOU can yawn as much as you like.
10- ok, to clarify this issue to muslims and non-muslims: that happend indeed but it was a ONE special case, and it did not happen directly, Sahlah the daughter of Suheil milked her breast's milk in a "CUP" and gave it to Salem the adopted son of Abu Hudheyfa (her husband) to drink from, and this issue has to do with when the Verse of unallowing adoption in Islam was revealed.
ps: Salem was raised by Sahlah the daughter of Suheail so he's like a son to her.
11- OMG i seriously laughed on this one, YO slick you should have a stand-up comedy show for muslims :D
it's a "sin" he said :D
it's stated that it's from the Sunnah to lay on the right side when a the person goes to bed to sleep.

ok now that i've ansewered you i wish you know that you're not the only thing trying to distroy Islam, and that job has been popular for 1400 years, and none of you succeeded (-_-) .

Men are better than women:
“(Women) have rights similar to those (of men) over them in kindness, and men are a degree above them.” Sura 2:228

Women are worth half a man:
“To the male the equivalent of the portion of two females, and if there be women more than two, then theirs is two-thirds of the inheritance, and if there be one (only) then the half.” Sura 4:11

“Unto the male is the equivalent of the share of two females.” Sura 4:176

Selling a wife is perfectly ok:
“And if ye wish to exchange one wife for another and ye have given unto one of them a sum of money (however great), take nothing from it.” Sura 40:20

The sooner Islam is abolished the sooner we’ll have world peace and it won’t be abolished if we don’t recognise it as a problem that needs fixing. So pull your head out of your politically correct arse and reconnect with reality: Islam is a disease, it has no place in a civilised society and it isn’t racist to say such things.

You are a very hateful and scary person and so is everybody who shares your opinion and call terrorist true moslim.

True islam is a disgusting insult to our development as a species. All muslims seem to lack the concept of the rest of the world, thinking that "god" somehow created the entire universe and then chose to pinpoint the fucking desert 3 times to relay his message before vanishing into thin air. Im half chinese and half native american, both my cultures have been waiting for this allah to show up....nothing yet. Seriously, the korans been debunked so many times its not even funny. The lengths muslims have to go to to justify their disgusting and ridiculous beliefs is laughable. Fuck Islam

1.Plucking your eyebrows changes your face shape, thus making you more beautiful. So you aren't allowed.

2. Even Jewish religion forbids pictures in homes.

3.Not true at all.

4.Being lashed is better than being killed, as the bible says.

5.Murder is a crime, no matter who is murdered. Again, not true at all.

6. Deception is lying, which is a grave sin itself. So is backbiting, eavesdropping,

7.Obviously. See #1

8.Yellow is forbidden for MEN

9.No true. Yawning is rude, thus cover it is what we're asked to do.

10.Why kill dogs? Another big fat lie. We say,

11. What?! Where do you get this stuff?

12.Honestly, where do you get this stuff. You're sure to fail whatever test you're studying for, bud.

Mr river fred that is untrue, WUDU' is not only washing out the nose, But the matter to "wash out the nose" is not as you said "devel spends the night in the interior of the nose", Mohammed (pbuh)did not say so, when you make ablution inhale (wash out the nose), becouse you know that the nose is the only organ we use for respiration and it is opened so, the dust and all small particles in the air enter into the nose, and in the nose we have hair and sticky things that block dust and the smallest particles in the air. It is that what Moslims wash out when they make ablution. Mr Fred, your nose is full of dirty.

Most of these are lies from non-credible sources and half truths mixed with a lie and you know that. You may not approve my comment on your blog but read it still. :) I'm not mad, I know the true Islam. When the day of judgement comes, you will have to answer to Allah and that humiliation alone is enough to imagine. Look up all the "end of times signs" from credible sources and tell me how an illiterate man 1400 years ago could've predicted all these hadiths w/o being told from a supernatural source. Do not challenge Allah and His religion. Peace be with you inshAllah brother.

Most of these are made up. It's so obvious what you're trying to do, you're trying to make Islam look bad.and the other one which are not completely wrong are translated in a wrong way that you wouldn't understand them in literal translation. I know all of this for a fact because I'm a muslim and I've been studying Islam for the past 11 years in school since the second grade.I was born a muslim, I didn't convert to Islam, and so I know the religion as much as you know your own culture or religion or whatever. Islam came into the world when everything was different before people made up democracy and "freedom".

This is bullshit. As a Muslim myself, I can tell you that Islam is a religeon of peace and chastity. Killing and lying are sins, and looking at any woman's breasts when you are grown, except for you wife's, is prohibited!
I pluck my eyebrows. I even have a dog, and pictures in my house. Although these things are not encouraged, they are not sins, and Allah has never said to kill any innocent living thing for any reason other than defense or nutrition.
I'm disgusted by your ignorance, and is really do hope you read up a bit more on Islam before you post anything else about it.

I think some of your list needs to be reviewed, there are some errors. Please can i suggest you look at pure islam (aka sunni islam) when stating things like this? Some so called "islamic" teachings are from traditions in a community and are very corrupt. Sorry, its just i feel that some of the things you have stated may not be true.
In case someone is going to ask, yes i am a converted muslim myself. I find it very hard sometimes when people tell me something that is apparently islamic, and i double check all of my sources of info. I think it would be wise if you do the same; i mean this in the nicest way possible. Have a great life all :-)

Please don't make accusations about what the Qur'an does and does not say without confirming it with one who has undergone proper Qur'anic studies. Much of what the Qur'an says is misunderstood by Muslims and non-Muslims because they're not studying the idea in context, without bringing their own biases when approaching the verses. I recommend Nouman Ali Khan's 'Qur'an: cover-to-cover' video series for anyone who wants to get the shortest version of closest possible translation of the Qur'an. I misunderstood a lot of verses before watching his videos.

Shame this is really sad... how can people make up these things.... Just to turn people against Islam.

I mean we as muslims have nuthing against christian ppl or any religion. All we want is peace. Even though you clearly mad up these lies. I am not even angry at you.. I am just disappointed for the way that people can be so immature.

You know. besides this post which is really disturbing and so sad really because muslims are not at all how ppl make them out to be.

Yes there are people that call themselves muslims.... but they interepret the quraan wrong and they make up their own rules etc. THOSE ARE NOT TRUE MUSLIMS! A MUSLIM LIVES HIS LIFE ACCORDING TO THE QURAAN.

There is no such thing as killing of another human or disrespecting a other person. Islam is all about peace and respect, cleanliness and not living for this world and material gain. but living for the life here after and in believing Allah/God and not in worldly things such as idols etc...we do have respect for all religions.

I came across a image on the internet that i found very disturbing.
A muslim mother cutting her sons head with a knife... and at the bottom of the image says'A muslim mother causing pain to her son etc guarantees her into paradise'

THIS IS SICK!!!!!!!!! how can ppl make islam look so bad?? we should never cause anyone pain. Especially our children.


This is really sad.

All i can say ...Ppl please stop making islam look so bad just for your personal gain.

Remember you are not gpoing to live forever annd the day u die u will answer for all your lies etc

Then again Allah is most forgiving and Allah knows best.
