Three Quran Verses Every Woman Should Know

A 2009 study by the Organization for Economic
Co-Operation and Development found that eleven of the twelve countries with the highest levels
of discrimination against women were Muslim-majority countries. Amazingly, Muslim preachers in the West insist
that Islam promotes equality and women’s rights. Some even declare that Muhammad was a feminist—perhaps
the greatest feminist who ever lived. Why do these preachers spout such shameless
nonsense? They preach it because they know that there’s
a general atmosphere of ignorance about Islam and that they can say whatever they want,
since there’s no one to correct them. I suggest that the first step on the path
to reducing the gender gap in Muslim countries is an informed population of free people who
will not fall for false claims about Islam, and who can therefore draw attention to the
real source of the problem. With this in mind, I present “Three Qur’an
Verses Every Woman Should Know.” Now before everyone fills up the comments
section with “David, why didn’t you bring up Surah 4:3, or Surah 4:24, or Surah 65:4,
or basically all of Surah 33,” let me say that I know there are a lot of relevant verses
here. But there’s simply too much material to
present all at once, so I’ve selected three verses that are especially relevant to the
high levels of discrimination against women in Muslim countries. First, Surah 2, verse 282 of the Qur’an
is an outrageously long verse dealing with contracts. But there’s an interesting part in the middle
that says: “And get two witnesses out of your own men. And if there are not two men (available),
then a man and two women, such as you agree for witnesses, so that if one of them (one
of the two women) errs, the other can remind her.” If two men aren’t available as witnesses,
then get a man and two women. Here we find the Islamic principle that the
testimony of a woman is worth half the testimony of a man. Why is this? Muhammad explains in Sahih al-Bukhari 2658: “The Prophet said: ‘Isn’t the witness
of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said: ‘Yes.’ He said: ‘This is because of the deficiency
of a woman’s mind.’” The testimony of women is unreliable because
women are, by nature, stupid. These teachings of Allah and Muhammad, combined
with other problematic teachings, such as the need for four male witnesses if you’re
accusing someone of sexual sin, have made it enormously difficult for Muslim women to
testify against men in court. According to the New York Times, human rights
workers have noted that as many as half of the women who report being raped in Pakistan
are charged with adultery. Second, in Surah 2, verse 223, Allah says: “Your wives are a tilth for you; so go to
your tilth when or how you will . . .” We don’t use the word “tilth” much nowadays. A “tilth” is a patch of ground that you
plow so you can sow your seed. The Qur’an says women are a tilth that you
approach whenever and however you want. The historical background to this verse, according
to Sunan Abu Dawud 2158 and 2159, which you can read by clicking the link in the description
box, is that when Muslims moved to Medina, they began marrying women from Medina, and
the women of Medina didn’t want to have sex in certain positions. One woman told her husband not to come near
her if he wanted sex in these positions. Let’s read what happened. “This tribe of the Quraish [that was Muhammad’s
tribe] used to uncover their women intensely, and seek pleasure with them from in front
and behind and laying them on their backs. When the Muhajirun (the Muslim Immigrants)
came to Medina, a man married a woman of the Ansar. He began to do the same kind of action with
her, but she disliked it, and said to him: We were approached on one side (i.e. lying
on our backs); do it so, otherwise keep away from me. This matter of theirs spread widely, and it
reached the Apostle of Allah. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic
verse: “Your wives are a tilth to you, so come to your tilth however you will,” i.e.
from in front, from behind or lying on the back.” So, a woman says, “I refuse to have sex
in these positions.” Allah’s response to her husband is: “She’s
your tilth, your field for sowing your seed; plow her however you want.” Muhammad obviously took this verse seriously,
since he made it clear that when a man wants sex, a woman has to drop whatever she’s
doing and satisfy him. In Sunan Ibn Majah 1853, Muhammad declares: “No woman can fulfill her duty towards Allah
until she fulfills her duty towards her husband. If he asks her (for intimacy) even if she
is on her camel saddle, she should not refuse.” In Jami at-Tirmidhi 1160, Muhammad adds: “When a man calls his wife to fulfill his
need, then let her come, even if she is at the oven.” Third, some women aren’t as quick to obey
their husbands as Allah and Muhammad demand, so what are Muslim men supposed to do about
rebellious wives? Allah answers in Surah 4, verse 34: “Men are in charge of women, because Allah
hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for
the support of women). So good women are obedient, guarding in secret
that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom you fear rebellion,
admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against
them.” If your wife doesn’t obey you, you warn
her, banish her to a separate bed, and beat her until she does what you say. Should we be surprised that, according to
a study by Human Rights Watch, more than 85% of Afghan women are victims of physical, sexual,
or psychological violence or forced marriage, and that more than 60 percent are victims
of multiple forms of violence? According to Allah and Muhammad, women are
stupid; they’re the property of men and have to submit themselves fully to their husbands’
sexual whims; those who don’t are to be beaten into submission. Numerous studies show the real-world impact
of these teachings. And yet we’re told, by politicians, reporters,
and Muslim groups that the discrimination against women in Muslim countries has nothing
to do with Islam. Unfortunately for Islam’s defenders, this
discrimination against women was clear during the time of Muhammad. In Sahih al-Bukhari 5825, Muhammad’s child-bride
Aisha sees a woman whose Muslim husband beat her so severely, her skin turned green. Aisha takes the woman to Muhammad and says:
“I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!” This is Aisha, Muhammad’s favorite wife,
who’s called the Mother of the Faithful, saying that Muslim women were being treated
worse than pagan women. Why were Muslim women being treated so horribly? Here’s why. Here’s why. And if you’re expecting Muhammad to punish
the man who beat his wife until her skin turned green, you haven’t been listening. Muhammad rebuked the woman for being a bad
wife. So, Muslim women were viciously oppressed
in the earliest Muslim community, and here we are, fourteen centuries later, and the
situation hasn’t changed. Why hasn’t it changed? Because many Muslim communities today take
that first Muslim community as their model. They take the teachings of Muhammad and the
Qur’an as authoritative. If we want to see lasting change in our lifetimes,
we have to challenge the pattern laid down by Muhammad and the Qur’an. So, learn these three verses. Share them with your friends. Share the video. You can get all of the verses and all of the

  2. During Gova (India) inquisition, missionaries killed (live burned) 16500 Hindus who did not converted to Christianity. And lot of torture. Demolished the temples and built Church over it.
    Today also they play dirty tricks with poors.
    Why? Where is the love from Jesus?
    Still we Hindus love you all because we all are part of universe God and one day world will realize the torture done with Hindus.

  4. Can i say something as a muslim..?!don't kill me with your words ok i'm not a terrorist I swear…why are u blaming us for choosing our own religion..Hindus can choose a stone or a cow as their GOD..buddhism can choose their own religion too…isn't it..?? My Islamic religion says "we should show respect to other religions and don't be harsh to them with our ideas because this is their own choice and they are believed in it" Indians please is it just about Muslims women that can't get their own rights..?! But in India u can see how many women died in a day by not Muslims men especially by their brother/husband/father….!it's not about ISLAM this is about middle eastern people..In my religion u can't sex with someone before u get married…but in some other religions u can do it even without getting married..and u can see How many people getting AIDS and unfortunately it gets worse and worse…this why believe in own religion..We all know about our religion and if u don't know much about ours u can't understand's just like a language of souls…and we believe in it…so please why can't u show some respect to the end we are all human I swear we are not terrorists and we don't like killing or wars..we would like to travel to your countries too…we are human too..we love u (Christians- Hinduism-buddhis-Catholics…..)..
    don't blame me guys I think I have my right to say my own opinions..*sorry for my bad English

  5. Are you crazy? So, if that a lie and non muslim believe that…
    Then, this non muslim learn about Islam, don't they will be know the truth?
    So, there is no reason to lie
    The real Muslim isn't lying, Islam is a good religion.
    The one who lying and give bad image about muslim is bad people like you !

  6. (2:223) Your wives are your tilth; go, then, into your tilth as you wish241 but take heed of your ultimate future242 and avoid incurring the wrath of Allah. Know well that one Day you shall face Him. Announce good tidings to the believers.

    241. That is, God's purpose in the creation of women is not merely to provide men with recreation. Their mutual relationship is like that between a farmer and his tilth. A farmer approaches his field not just for the sake of pleasure, but to acquire produce. Similarly, man ought to approach the tilth of the human race with the purpose of acquiring produce, that is, offspring. What is of concern to the Law of God is not the particular mode of cultivating one's tilth, but rather that one should go only to one's tilth and not elsewhere, and that one should go there for the purpose of cultivation.

    242. These words are susceptible to two meanings. First, that a person should try to maintain the continuity of the human race so that when he departs from this world there should be others to replace him in his tasks. Second, that one should be concerned with the quality of the coming generation, i.e., how far it is endowed with religious devotion, moral excellence and humanity, and that one should do all that is possible to promote these qualities. The latter part ot the verse contains the warning that those who deliberately neglect these two duties will he severely taken to task by God.

  7. I went through all the verses you quoted but wow shockingly in Quran non of those are mentioned & you are fooling all of us great … Guys go yourself & see it in those verses then you'll find this guy is a big lier & he's telling us about fake lines which aren't in Quran in those verses he mentioned. check yourself don't believe this piggy blindly… Wow someone can be so against some religion that he starts speaking lies 😠 & many starts believing it too without doing their personal research so sad 💔 do research then believe in intead of believing someone else's talks.. he is just created hatred against islam. At d beginning I believed too but for my personal satisfaction I did my research & matched those verses but turn out it's wrong & not their in quran.

  8. If Muslim women are considered mentally deficient then why Ilan Omar the US Congress representative Muslim woman thinks otherwise ⁉️technically she should not be in the office according to the Quran 🤔

  9. I had a hard time finding your page googling it… just wanted to share the BANU QURAYZA video which I find very instructive specially to understand that the muslim community always becomes a problem after reaching the demographic majority cause charia collective holy duties change when they reach the demographic majority to become totally incompatible with secularity introduced around 1900 with the abolition of blasphemy and the introduction of the liberty of expression & human rights & the concept of separation of powers of Montesquieu and Locke 1748

  10. I am so happy that I made the decision to learn about what the Quran and Hadith actually say. Thanks to videos like these and the books like the ones Nabeel Qureshi has written (may he rest in peace), my eyes have opened.

  11. Wow, how in the hell can women become Muslims in the west? After hearing this I would think this cause every western woman to run away from Muslim suitors. As for Muslim women the light and justice of Jesus bring them freedom. I am really serious about this prayer. There is movie I recommend for western woman who is thinking of Muslim man. It called not without my daughter. It based on a true story.

  12. This is the reason why I hate prophet Muhammad the most though I dont want to sound offensive.
    Hope my Muslim brothers and sisters come to know the truth soon. Amen.


  14. Aww look at him barking. Bark more. MORE.
    Cause when Hijab Comes you ll be busy wetting your pants.
    Cry more Wood Brain

  15. I just want to know how islam still grows faster despite what you say all along. The growth is a myth or fact. Please clarify.

  16. 1)
    Numbers 31
    17Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, 18but SAVE FOR YOURSELVES EVERY GIRL WHO HAS NEVER SLEPT WITH A MAN.
    2) Isiah 13:16
    Their little children will be dashed to death before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked, and their WIVES WILL BE RAPED.
    3)1 Corinthians 11
    Neither was man created for woman,but woman for man.

  17. Women witness
    Deuteronomy 22:13-20
    13 If a man takes a wife and, after lying with her, dislikes her 14 and slanders her and gives her a bad name, saying, "I married this woman, but when I approached her, I did not find proof of her virginity," 15 then the girl's father and mother shall bring proof that she was a virgin to the town elders at the gate. 16 The girl's father will say to the elders, "I gave my daughter in marriage to this man, but he dislikes her. 17 Now he has slandered her and said, 'I did not find your daughter to be a virgin.' But here is the proof of my daughter's virginity." Then her parents shall display the cloth before the elders of the town, 18 and the elders shall take the man and punish him. 19 They shall fine him a hundred shekels of silver [a] and give them to the girl's father, because this man has given an Israelite virgin a bad name. She shall continue to be his wife; he must not divorce her as long as he lives.

    20 If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the girl's virginity can be found, 21 she shall be brought to the door of her father's house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done a disgraceful thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father's house. You must purge the evil from among you.

    This just shows that the woman is guilty unless proven innocent. This also shows that the man who falsely accused his wife only pays a hundred shekels for ruining her reputation and must be married to her forever. Look at this from the woman’s point of view, her honor is taken away and she is forced to stay with her rapist. Not only that, she is forced to prove her virginity just merely because her husband accused her of not being a virgin! How on earth is she supposed to prove she was a virgin? If she can't then they stone her to death! Why can't they just simply ask her and take her word for it?

    Numbers 30: 4-8,16

    4 and her father hears about her vow or pledge but says nothing to her, then all her vows and every pledge by which she obligated herself will stand. 5 But if her father forbids her when he hears about it, none of her vows or the pledges by which she obligated herself will stand; the LORD will release her because her father has forbidden her.

    This shows that the father can cancel his daughter’s oath.

    6 "If she marries after she makes a vow or after her lips utter a rash promise by which she obligates herself 7 and her husband hears about it but says nothing to her, then her vows or the pledges by which she obligated herself will stand. 8 But if her husband forbids her when he hears about it, he nullifies the vow that obligates her or the rash promise by which she obligates herself, and the LORD will release her.

    This shows the husband can cancel his wife’s oath.

    This also means that it is difficult for a woman to conduct business, because no one would trust her. Because if she made an agreement, then her father or husband can just easily come and annul it for you.

    In Surah 24, we read that if a man wants to accuse his wife of adultery then he has to bring 4 witnesses forward and if he cannot provide those 4 witnesses than he has to take 5 oaths. Then if the wife wants to negate that evidence of his then she does the same. That shows that the woman’s testimony is equal to that of a man. Its not equal in certain situations (eg. financial situations) If a man also wants to accuse a chaste woman of being adulterous then he must provide witnesses, they wont just take his testimony because he is a man. If he doesn’t provide that testimony then he is to be lashed 80 times. Look how Islam protects the women from being falsely accused. If both of them testify then the judge will declare that they should separate and not be married together anymore because of the tension between them.

  18. David is a fraud let’s look the historical context of verse 2
    Firstly he conveniently skipped all Hadith about this from Bukhari and Muslim and jumped to Abū Dāwūd then again he skipped first part of the Hadith
    Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas:
    Ibn Umar misunderstood (the Qur'anic verse, "So come to your tilth however you will")–may Allah forgive him. The fact is that this clan of the Ansar, who were idolaters, lived in the company of the Jews who were the people of the Book. They (the Ansar) accepted their superiority over themselves in respect of knowledge, and they followed most of their actions. The people of the Book (i.e. the Jews) used to have intercourse with their women on one side alone (i.e. lying on their backs). This was the most concealing position for (the vagina of) the women. This clan of the Ansar adopted this practice from them. But this tribe of the Quraysh used to uncover their women completely, and seek pleasure with them from in front and behind and laying them on their backs.
    When the muhajirun (the immigrants) came to Medina, a man married a woman of the Ansar. He began to do the same kind of action with her, but she disliked it, and said to him: We were approached on one side (i.e. lying on the back); do it so, otherwise keep away from me. This matter of theirs spread widely, and it reached the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ).
    So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur'anic verse: "Your wives are a tilth to you, so come to your tilth however you will," i.e. from in front, from behind or lying on the back. But this verse meant the place of the delivery of the child, i.e. the vagina.

    Here we can see women refused sex because she followed jews

    Now we can read Sahih Bukhari (there are seven other narations which say this)

    Narrated Jabir:
    Jews used to say: "If one has sexual intercourse with his wife from the back, then she will DELIVER A SQUINT-EYED CHILD." So this Verse was revealed:– "Your wives are a tilth unto you; so go to your tilth when or how you will." (2.223)

    So the quranic verse was revealed to deny this false beliefs of jews and woman who followed Jews

  19. Women are compared to fields because of their similarity that they both are place where crop/child is grown and it is a matter of pride as Holy Quran 31:14 says “And We have enjoined upon man [care] for his parents. His mother carried him, [increasing her] in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning is in two years. Be grateful to Me and to your parents; to Me is the [final] destination.”

    As for “approach them however you wish means that any position you wish ,this is to negate the disbelief of jews that influenced the Muslims as ibn kathir says
    Al-Baqarah – 2:223

    English – Ibn Kathir
    نِسَأوُكُمْ حَرْثٌ لَّكُمْ

    Your wives are a tilth for you,

    Ibn Abbas commented,

    "Meaning the place of pregnancy."

    Allah then said:

    فَأْتُواْ حَرْثَكُمْ أَنَّى شِيْتُمْ

    so go to your tilth, when or how you will,

    meaning, wherever you wish from the front or from behind, as long as sex takes place in one valve (the female sexual organ), as the authentic Hadiths have indicated.

    For instance, Al-Bukhari recorded that;

    Ibn Al-Munkadir said that he heard Jabir say that the Jews used to claim that if one has sex with his wife from behind (in the vagina) the offspring would become cross-eyed.

    Then, this Ayah was revealed:

    نِسَأوُكُمْ حَرْثٌ لَّكُمْ فَأْتُواْ حَرْثَكُمْ أَنَّى شِيْتُمْ

    (Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth, when or how you will).

  20. Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

    1 Peter 3:1

    Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives,

    However, what kind of submission are we talking about here?…

    1 Peter 3:5-6

    5For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own husbands, Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her master. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.

    So aren't the pious Christian women of today also supposed to follow this example and call their husbands their master?

    It is good that the New Testament teaches that a wife should obey her husband but you can kind of get the impression that it takes it a little bit too far…

    Ephesians 5:22-24

    Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

  21. Sahih Muslim
    My last recommendation to you is that you should treat women well. Truly they are your helpmates, and you have no right over them beyond that – "except if they commit a manifest indecency" [ fahisha mubina ]. If they do, then refuse to share their beds and hit them "without indecent violence"[ fadribuhunna darban ghayra mubarrih ].

  22. Read your bible first and see that the women where created not from the same sole as the man.
    Read ur bible that the women when she is in her period she is totally impure and her husband can’t even eat with her.
    Read ur bible saying that the women is the one who is behind Adams sin.
    Before you are asking people to read these verses u should know the meaning of the arabic cultures and language
    U should know how was the women situation before that,they where buried a live
    In UK tell 1950 the women can’t have anything under her name but she has to be under either her father or husband!!!!!!!!

  23. Dr zakir Naik is the one who can give you the correct answer and right information. The meaning of verses are not the way you explain.

  24. Have you seen the video by a Muslim woman who grew up in Iran? She was married at 9 years old! They thought that is allowed in Shria law! She's now safe.

  25. Muslim “you know Islam is the best religion for women’s rights”
    Me “oh then Muslim majority countries are full of equal rights for men and women?”
    Muslim “…………”
    Yeah that’s what I thought.

  26. .. haleyluyeah..
    …. you should wear a signboard hung on your neck , which says ..
    " im a the real prophet "..
    … you should try it sometimes… if not then , you should wear it everyday… 24/7…

    … oh.. dont forget to smile sheep style..
    Hee.. hee. .. hee … heee.. hee.

  27. This man is literally satan himself, just look at him… please Allah keep me from the astray. Indeed you are the all knowing 🙌

  28. Hi

  30. Iam watching your channel from india. Tripura province .iam very eager to know about islamic quran error but icant not understand 100%only 60% i become to understsnd.very good always go ahead god will be provide you.

  31. This is the only appealing thing about Islam is that they have women that are respectful, subservient and polite but women in the west are snobby, spoiled, stuck up, rude and cold hearted. We give women way too many rights and way too much favoritism in the court system, in politics and elsewhere and women of the west turn around and act hateful, disrespectful and think they should rule over men. Islamic women respect men, western women don’t

  32. Have heard Muslims say that Quran is no comparison to any other holy books.. now we understand it, in true sense, that i really is no comparison in any way.. just filth…

  33. He did insult of women bcz he was stupid nd I think his father didn't tell him that he had born from a woman nd women has Sharp mind than man

  38. Wow how did i miss you channel you know after all regardless of your bias opinion best for women to be protected and veiled from men like mary mother of jesus christ exactly

  39. The kind of spirit in men plays a vital role to their character. Whether, Islamic men attitude towards women is in the quaran or not, this simply defines the kind of spirit in them, EVIL SATANIC SPIRIT.
    No Christian will settle for such attitudes towards women because the Spirit of God which is LOVE lives in us unless he has been possessed by another spirit/A false Christian.


  40. This is not true… please if you don't know much about Islam then speak not…. Allah never asked anyman to beat up their wives…… May Allah remove the seal from your heart and grand you guidance….. you are not a muslim

  41. Wow! So sad, I met a Muslim colleague whom I wanted to share the word of freedom (Gospel of salvation) with and she told me how Islam promotes women rights! How can people cling to such huge lies framed by a sinful man? It is either they are ignorant or happy to remain sinners! Can't even begin to imagine such….. Wow! I feel sorry for these people honestly. Lord have mercy. Amen. David God bless you for you for such a bold step.

  42. Peace Greetings!

    Brother after watching your video i am really feeling so bad about you an your ignorance because whatever you presented in your video , it is not the actual meaning of Islam and as for that matter about the 3 verses you presented…Brother i kindly request you to listen the lectures of Dr Zakir Naik because he have really clarified things really well on these topics in open question answer sessions to non muslims…you can easily get the video for all the 3 points you talked incorrect about due to mere ignorance or may be something else .God knows best!!

    But i hope you would really do what i requested brother .May god guide you .Ameen

  43. Save…the world from islam..redical..look in entire which part is more u can esaily say MIDDIEL EAST and this part is most dangerous part in the world think onec if entire world is islam then entire world will conflict before convert in to islam remind my words….

  44. All Religions are made by men and they are all full of shit! This is for any other religion that thinks they are any better than Muslims!

  45. And yet Muslims say that Islam promotes equality.. What an eye-opener. I have been following your channel after I have watched one of your eye-opening videos. May God bless you for fearlessly exposing the truth sir. To God be all the glory and praise!

  46. in the world afgan is not only muslim country. some middle east country are try to abuse islamic rules. some people of saudi arabia they torcher to women.pakistan law is same like that the example is "Malala". They don't follow actual islam.

    I'd like to ask you a counter question। if your women or wife sex with other man without knowing you is it ok ?
