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 they 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: 1- A father with his two daughters Prophet Lot with his two daughters in details ( Gen. 19.30-38) 2- A father in law with his daughter in law Judah(one of Jesus’s grandfathers) with Tamar (Gen.38.15-19) 3- A son with his step mother. Reuben son of prophet Jacob with Bilhah his father’s concubine. (Gen.35.22) 4- A brother with his sister. prophet David’s son with his own sister (2 Sam. 13.1) 5- An invitation for incest between a brother his sister in Songs of Solomon 8.1-3 reads as follows ” 1 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. 3 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 Islma
JazaakAllah for your kind contribution.
However, in view of the fact that we should bear, honor and respect the Bible, just as any other book revealed by our Creator, I would feel more comfortable if we remove references to the Bible from it. I would think it best to remove these references for three main reasons:
Firstly, an objection as baseless as the one under consideration, may at worst be completely ignored (as I have done in my original response to the question) or at best be responded to clear any innocent minds that may carry it; however, it should never be responded with a counter-objection on the religion of the objector;
Secondly, in justice, the despicable laws that you have referred to of the European and the American societies are, in fact, not based on Christianity or the Bible, on the contrary, these laws are based on political considerations of a socially degenerated and morally lost, secular society;
Finally, the Qur’an has directed us to avoid responding to abuse with abuse. Such an attitude is always harmful to get our addressees sympathetic attention towards our call towards the path of eternal and absolute salvation and bliss.
These are only my humble suggestions. I would, nevertheless, post your comments on the site, if you are still of the opinion that they should be posted and displayed for public viewing.
In case you decide to revise your comments, in the light of my humble suggestions, please repost your revised comments. However, in case you would like to post your comments in the present form, I shall be obliged to do so, with a request that you may kindly repost these comments on Monday.
I look forward to your response.
