- Al-Nisa, Islam, Koran, women
You have all read or know of the famous Koranic verse or sura al-Nisa (The Women), which basically speaks of the ‘excellent’ status of women under Islam. It says things like how a women is worth half that of a man and that’s it’s alright to beat a disobedient woman (spare me any comments on – but only lightly!). Well for those of you who cannot stand to hear that sura anymore, we have a new one for you.
A member of the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain has made up their own more woman-friendly version. Enjoy – at least until the ‘stop giving offence’ brigade start up again. The falcons are already offended and threatening to hack our website. Oh well…
