I’ve a comment regarding the incest! in the West people do not usually accept the marriage between first cousins (which is allowed in Islam) and they consider it as incest! but they do not consider adultery a sin any more leave alone nowadays there is a good news for the homosexuals (gays) that their great sin is accepted too and their abomination can be blessed by a priest too in their houses of God (the churches)! as prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said “that one of the signs of Judgment day is that people will (consider) see Alma’roof (the good, the norm, the ordinary) thing as a sin and bad, and at the same time they will see the sin as a good thing”. and since those who lie on Islam and attribute incest to Islam are mostly Christians I would like to invite them to the books of incest (i.e the Bibles), the bibles mention all kind of incest and sometimes without even criticizing the act or showing any kind of punishment to the criminals. examples of the Incest in the bibles:
A father with his two daughters : Prophet Lot with his two daughters in details ( Gen. 19.30-38)
A father in law with his daughter in law: Judah (one of Jesus’ grandfathers) with Tamar (Gen.38.15-19)
A son with his step mother. Reuben son of prophet Jacob with Bilhah his father’s concubine. (Gen.35.22)
A brother with his sister: prophet David’s son with his own sister (2 Sam. 13.1)
An invitation for incest between a brother his sister in Songs of Solomon 8.1-3 reads as follows “O that thou wert as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother! when I should find thee without, I would kiss thee; yea, I should not be despised. 2 I would lead thee, and bring thee into my mother’s house, who would instruct me: I would cause thee to drink of spiced wine of the juice of my pomegranate( means her lover to suck her breasts!). His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me.”!!!
I think the few examples from the bibles prove the case. Allah says “Lo! Allah enjoineth justice and kindness, and giving to kinsfolk, and forbiddeth lewdness and abomination and wickedness. He exhorteth you in order that ye may take heed. (Quran 16.90). All praise be to Allah and Peace be on all the Messengers.
Yours in Islam
Thank you for your contribution.
However, it may please be noted that in view of the fact that some forms of incest are primarily natural prohibitions, rather than prohibitions of the Law, therefore, some of the referred instances of incest in the Bible must clearly be a result of the potential corruptions made in it.
