    Why are so Many Women Turning to Islam (OP)


    Why are so many Women converting to Islam?

    According to "The Plain Truth", February 1984, in its 50 Year Anniversary Issue, quoting from the "World Almanac and Book of Facts 1935" and "Reader's Digest Almanac and Yearbook 1983", between 1934 and 1984.

    Christianity increased 47%
    World Population increased 136%
    Islam increased 235%



    100,000 people per year in America alone, are converting to Islam. For every 1 male convert to Islam, 4 females convert to Islam.
    They're discovering the FACTS and not basing their decisions on biased media. They realise they deserve to know the complete unadulterated truth.

    1. The Bible Convicts Women as the original Sinners (ie. Eve picking from the forbidden tree){Genesis 2:4-3:24}.

    The Koran Clarifies it was Adam Not Eve {Koran 7:19-25}


    2. The Bible says "The Birth of a Daughter is a loss" {Ecclesiasticus 22:3}.

    The Koran says both are an Equal Blessing {Koran 42:49}


    3. The Bible forbids women from speaking in church {I Corinthians 14:34-35}.

    The Koran says women can argue with the Prophet {58:1}

    4. In the Bible, divorced Women are Labeled as an Adulteress, not men {Matthew 5:31-32}

    The Koran does Not have Biblical double standards{Koran 30:21}


    5. In The Bible, widows and sisters do not inherit Any property or wealth, only men do {Numbers 27:1-11}

    The Koran abolished this male greed {Koran 4:22} and God protects all.


    6. The Bible Allows Multiple Wives {I Kings 11:3}

    In The Koran, God limits the number to 4 only under certain situations (with the wife's permission)and prefers you marry only one wife {Koran 4:3} The Koran gives the woman the right to choose who to marry.


    7. "If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay the girl's father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the girl, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives" {Deuteronomy 22:28-30}

    One must ask a simple question here, who is really punished, the man who raped the woman or the woman who was raped? According to the Bible, you have to spend the rest of your life with the man who raped you.

    The Prophet Muhammad Says {Volume 9, Book 86, Number 101} Narrated by Aisha:"It is essential to have the consent of a virgin (for the marriage)".

    Would the Non-Muslim men reading this prefer the Women they know to be Christian or Muslim?



    8. The Bible also asks women to wear veils as in Islam {I Corinthians 11:3-10}



    9. Women were given rights to Vote less than a 100 years ago in the (US), while the Koran gave women voting rights almost 1,500 years ago.



    Christian Scientists are declaring the Koran is from God. Click this link-http://wings.buffalo.edu/sa/muslim/library/jesus-say/ch13.html for stories of Christians and atheist scientists who convert to Islam and why. The Christian Bishops and Priests are admitting the Bible has tensions.- http://wings.buffalo.edu/sa/muslim/l...say/ch2.1.html

    Jesus is a Muslim? Click here.-
    http://wings.buffalo.edu/sa/muslim/l...ay/ch6.10.html

    The list goes on and on, to hear from some of these converts, including Nuns, and many Famous people click Here. For a more Information and Statistics click Here

    This is Dedicated to Past, Present, and Future Muslim Sisters, Family and Friends, to the Devil who prefers slander and hype over facts. Peace and Blessings upon All.

    Women in general are more prone to Ideologically shift than men are. I would say women leave Islam more than men as well. Men are usually very stubborn in their views, and one he is an dult his views and opinions on issues are set in the stone.

    Re: Why are so Many Women Turning to Islam

    I am a bit troubled by your words brother.
    You seem to say that as women we cannot be strong in our faith to islam and that the fact that some of us have allowed Allah to shine in our hearth and have accepted his will is something bad.

    As a convert, I always considered I was always simply unlucky enough to be born in a non muslim family. But now that I know of Allah's will, I will never turn my back on islam. Why would I??
    Are you saying I should have stayed a non believer???

    You also imply there are thousand and thousand of women who turn away from islam constantly. May I respectfully say this might be a bad impression? Maybe it is due to the media who often show muslims in a bad light. Those same media also love to talk about a specific woman who ran away from islam for various reason (a certain girl on social media comes to mind!!). However, most of these women were not really truly muslim to begin with.

    I am talking about all kinds of ideology and religion, not just Islam or Muslim women -all women.

    The very fact you converted is the proof. Meanwhile in a lot of other forums and social media, YouTube channels, there are many ex-muslim women, even more than men.

    The reason that so many Women are turning to Islam is because they're now realising that Islam is the only True Religion!

    Re: Why are so Many Women Turning to Islam

    I wouldn't be as optimistic as some people are here......

    Also forgot to mention, it depends on society, in the more conservative societies the converts are usually male. The very few Serb, Polish muslims I know are all male. I guess in more liberal countries, its females.

    Thats an interesting observation.
    As a western Muslimah from a liberal country I have to say I converted because Islam is more protective of my decency and overall well being. When I didn't have islam it was impossible to know what is the right way to behave as a woman.
    Islam gives more freedoms and more power and more status to women then any liberal laws do. Islam doesn't teach this ridiculous glass ceiling culture where woman are prevented from exceeding men even when they are more accomplished. Islam teaches people that you get what you earn regardless of your sex or whatever. Its based on your deeds and how hard you work. I would never have completed college and gotten a better career if i didn't convert to islam. Islam is the the only way of life that motivates me and encourages me to be a strong woman. Married or not.
    Its obvious to any intelligent lady to convert to Islam after reading Qur'an...I pray that more people find the truth in these countries insha allah. I have seen my country get way better and more fair over the last 13 years. We have a way to go...but I have seen the muslims here contributing a lot toward the progress.

    What I would also add that while everything you said is true...there is no place in Islam for Gender War. There is no place in Islam for women competing against men and women taking roles of men. That have no place in Islam at all what so ever. A women can get educated and she can do better than her male counterpart in education and she can even do better than her male counter part in career as well and she can even have more wealth than her male counter part as well...all of this is yes, yes and yes. However, she cannot step on the male role what so ever. He still and will always have status and value in Islam and he have a role to play and he have to get good education and get good career and on top of all of that, he should avoid hiring female in his company (nowadays) to avoid temptation and fasaat and all that stuff even if she could be better than any male counter part in terms of qualification. The secretary that does his affairs have to be male if it is his company and in additional to all of that if he is married and even if his wife is making more than him, he is paying mahir, he is paying for finances, he is protecting her, so he is still the leader in the house and if he does not want her to work in fear that harm could happen to her or fear temptation could arise or fear she will be neglectful to her duties then she have to obey him. But if they agreed that her company is all women or there is no temptation and it is safe and if she wants to work, nothing stops her from working. As long as she still can fulfill her wifely duty.

    The man's right and husband's right will and must be protected...because if you don't protect that right...you break family and if you break family the children will suffer!

    I completely agree with you sister. I am also a converted sister from a traditionally liberal western country. It took me a few years to finally see the truth of Islam but I have been so much better since I did.

    Islam gives us a clear path that actually makes sense. One that feels true and actually brings us happiness. I believe there might be more converted sisters in the west than other country probably because more women in the west live a life that is empty and full of sadness and disappointments. The current western culture pushes on all girls the idea that they should be doing exactly the same as boys. But then, as you mention yourself, even the most driven and intelligent ones, hit the glass ceiling and that's it. It is as if society pushes women toward a goal that just cannot be reached. The result can be nothing else than disappointment, sadness, and bad feelings.

    On the other hand, Islam has a clear path for us. One that has been followed with success by countless women before us and is still followed today by many other. We are not lured with false promises like the western ideas do. That is actually probably the biggest danger of western ideas. It does has some truth to it. All humans desire to be equal and be happy. That cannot be denied. It is why people do follow western ideas and some people are attracted to it. And it is also why those way of life are so dangerous. Until you have yourself lived it and realized that it is impossible, you can lure yourself in thinking that "I will be different than others and succeed where other failed". But once we fail, especially as women, we end up in a very bad and dangerous place.

    Islam does not lure us with false promises that women are the same as men. We are not. It accepts our differences and proposes a role that fits each of us. It warns us about what to watch out for, it helps guide us. And most importantly, it states over and over that even if both genders are different, we are equal when standing before Allah.
