If you have ever been on the Arabian Peninsula you will know that the men wear white and their women black. I say “their women” because the women are in fact treated as a man’s property — to do with as the men please. So why do the Arab men wear white and their women black?
The women in Islamic states are VERY AFRAID of Sharia law, because most of Sharia law (written by men) deals with the subjugation and punishment of their women, i.e., Sharia law gives the Muslim men the means to punish their women even if they are innocent. Therefore, the women in Islamic states try very hard not to anger the Muslim men. So you may be asking, what does fear of Sharia law have to do with their women wearing black? Read on…
Once a woman is accused she is in VERY BIG TROUBLE !!!
EXAMPLE: Mohammad had a new wife (Mary, a Coptic Christian) — he had captured her and was with her having sex in another wife’s bedroom (he had a room and night for each wife) — the old wife walked in and caught him having sex with Mary — she got all upset and organized Mohammad’s harem to not sleep with him. Word then got around town that Mohammad was having trouble at home with all his women, so he suddenly got this verse which says, “O Consorts of the Prophet! If any of you were guilty of evident unseemly conduct, the Punishment would be doubled to her, and that is easy for Allah.” (al Ahzab 33:30) After Mohammad told everyone his new verse his wives immediately cried, repented and no longer complained.
EXAMPLE: Mohammad visits his adoptive son, Zaid ibn Haritha, and sees Zaid’s pretty young wife, Zaynab bint Jash. Mohammad forces Zaid to divorce his wife and Mohammad takes her for his wife. There are numerous women in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia today who are divorced, because the men have replaced them with younger wives. One man in Saudi Arabia claims to have had 56 wives (at the time of his claim he was 56 years old), because he always has four, divorces one each year and adds a new wife. He claims that the best wife is always 15 years old. Mohammad had numerous wives, but the Qur’an and Sharia law permit Muslim men to have four wives at any one time, so the man who claimed to have had 56 wives had divorced numerous wives. In Sharia law a man only has to say “I divorce you” three times and she is divorced from him.
NOTE: Muslim scholar and statesman Ali Dashti gives the following list of the women that were in Mohammad’s life. The first 16 were wives. Numbers 17 and 18 were slaves or concubines. And this list does not account for the captive women Mohammad may have raped during his raids, as he instructed his men to do.
|1. Khadija||12. Hend|
|2. Sawda||13. Asma (of Saba)|
|3. Aesha||14. Zaynab (of Khozayma)|
|4. Omm Salama||15. Habla|
|5. Halsa||16. Asma (of Noman)|
|6. Zaynab (of Jahsh)||17. Mary (the Christian)|
|7. Jowayriyi||18. Rayhana|
|8. Omm Habiba||19. Omm Sharik|
|9. Safiya||20. Maymuna|
|10. Maymuna (of Hareth)||21. Zaynab (a third one)|
|11. Fatema||22. Khawla|
Mohammad is said to have had a dream two nights in a row of him marrying a six year old girl (Aisha), and she was according to Muslim scholars very imp0rtant in the development of Sharia law. One time Mohammad was going on a raid and he took Aisha with him. They were in a caravan going along in the desert and she has to use a toilet, so she slips quietly off the camel without telling anybody (there was a canopy over her, so nobody saw her disappear). When she comes back over the sand dune, the caravan is gone, and so a man straggling way behind on a donkey picks her up and takes her back to Mohammad. The Muslim men who saw the man bringing Aisha back to Mohammad said, “He must have raped her in the desert when he found her.” The little girl said, “He didn’t rape me.” So Mohammad made a decision. He said, “There have to be four witnesses, otherwise the rape never happened,” i.e., witnesses must be men. Mohammad’s decision became law in Islam, and is part of Sharia law today.
Sharia law says that there must be two women to testify against one man. That means it would take eight women to testify that there was a rape, otherwise it “never happened.” Then you add to that — that a kafir (infidel), Jew or Christian cannot testify in Sharia law courts against a Muslim (they have no standing). And then you add — that even though it has been proven that the woman was raped, it’s the woman who gets whipped a hundred times “for allowing herself to be used as a tool of Satan to tempt the man.” That is why on the Arabian Peninsula the women wear black burqas, i.e., to look unattractive on purpose, especially to the “religious police” who roam the streets looking for women to victimize.
NOTE: In pre-Islamic times, (prior to the 8th century) Allah was the moon-god idol (a masculine god), his wife was the sun-god idol (a feminine god) and they had three daughters (all goddesses). This is the topic of Salman Rushdie’s book The Satanic Verses. What’s interesting is that a verse in the Qur’an (Surah 18:86) subjugates Allah’s wife by claiming that she sets in a black sea or mud puddle. Obviously, the sun does not set in a black sea or mud puddle so we can only conclude that this qur’anic verse is intended to criticize (subjugate) Allah’s wife i.e., a claim that Arab men are greater than women. Obviously, this is more evidence that the Qur’an was written by dictatorial Arab men.
If you want to read further, you may.
The Qur’an says to Muslim men “Marry the women of your choice, two, three or four.” (Surah An-Niza 4:3) NOTE: The Qur’an does not even give a man the option of one wife. They are to marry “two, three or four.” Mohammad had numerous wives (more than “four” at a time) and permitted his men to rape the women they captured.
NOTE: The Qur’an and Sharia law do NOT permit a woman any options, nor are they permitted to choose the man they marry: They are FORCED into marriage. The Qur’an says there is “no compulsion in Islam,” but Islam lies from the onset. A woman who opposes marriage to a Muslim man is going to suffer before she is murdered.
The women on the Arabian Peninsula wear black because they try very hard to not be noticed by the “religious police”. Obviously the Arab men have taken white as the man’s color and their women are only to wear white when executed, dead and buried. In the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia when a woman is to be beheaded she is dressed in white.
Ibn ‘Abbaas said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Wear white clothes, for they are the best of your clothes, and shroud your dead in them.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 994, hasan saheeh. This is what the scholars regarded as mustahabb. Also narrated by Abu Dawood, 4061; Ibn Maajah, 1472
NOTE: The word “mustahabb” means “recommended” and “rewarded”.
So, if white is “recommended” and Muslims are “rewarded” for wearing white, why do all the women in Saudi Arabia wear black? Are they not to be rewarded unless executed? In fact Arab women love color, but are afraid to wear a color or white in public, for fear of being noticed by the “religious police.” Why black? Black is not even a color: Black is the absence of color. The women wear black out of their fear of being accused — once accused there is little hope of survival, because the men congregate like flies to watch the whipping and/or beheading of a woman.
NOTE: Do not be fooled: Arab women will tell you that black is their favored “color” because “it is in fashion.” Not so. Underneath all those black burqas they are covered in color. They all want color, not the absence of color.
“It is haraam for women to imitate men and men to imitate women in the way they dress, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) cursed the men who imitate women and the women who imitate men.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5546.
NOTE: The word “haraam” means “sinful”. The narration above starts with “It is haraam (sinful) for women to imitate men…” and then with “and men to imitate women.” This hadith above first instructs the women to not imitate men. So, because the men are wearing white and some color, the women cannot.
NOTE: Mohammad’s favorite color was yellow.
And why do Arab men not dress as we (westerners) do? The answer is apparently again from the narrations of Islamic “scholars”—claiming to quote Mohammad:
Narrated by Muslim, 2077. It is haraam (sinful) to imitate the mushrikeen and kuffaar in their manner of dress, so it is not permissible to wear clothing that is unique to the kuffaar. It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas said: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) saw ‘Ali wearing two garments dyed with safflower and said: “These are garments of the kuffaar; do not wear them.”
NOTE: “Mushrikeen and kuffaars” are “unbelievers” and obviously Muslims are told it is “haraam” (“sinful”) to imitate (to copy) “unbelievers,” not only in their manner of dress, but in any manner, whatsoever. This is why the Arab men do not wear shoes, but sandals. It is also why the “religious police” in Saudi Arabia prohibit the sale of dogs and cats for pets, why the Taliban forbids the use of cameras and playing football, and why the Somali women are beaten if they are caught wearing a bra. In other words anyone that copies a non-Muslim in any way is an apostate, because he or she is then an “unbeliever”.
Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar, Book 27, number 4020. “The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “He who copies any people is one of them.”
Qur’an 4:80: “Whoso obeyeth the Messenger obeyeth Allah.”
And it is very dangerous in Islamic countries, especially for the women, because according to Sharia law all apostates are to be sentenced to death. If you are disliked you will be accused and once you are accused your innocence or guilt depends entirely on who you know, not justice — which is what happened to seventeen-year-old Rizana Nafeek from Sri Lanka when the sister of a tribal leader in Saudi Arabia accused her of murdering her four-month-old baby. Rizana was immediately arrested and imprisoned, refused legal assistance, and seven years later beheaded. She was not proven guilty of a crime.
And in fact Saudi men copy “unbelievers” everyday when they drive a car. All cars originate from, are designed by, produced by, and driven by “unbelievers”. But it is the Saud family (the ruling family of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) that sets the tone (hypocrisy) and the men therefore drive their cars in Saudi Arabia without fear of being held accountable by the “religious police,” all of which are men driving cars. Apparently, Saudi men are the only Muslims in Saudi Arabia allowed to commit “haraam,” i.e., allowed to sin.
It is very clear from the Islamic laws (Sharia law) that the women in Islamic countries are subjugated (enslaved): Reduced to objects that are owned by men. In Saudi Arabia women are not even allowed to drive.
Although light colors are more suitable for the hot climate, black is what the “religious police” expect all the women to wear, and the women are therefore very afraid to wear color in public — so as to not draw the unwanted attention of the “religious police” known as “muttawah” the women wear black. Muslim men in Saudi Arabia also expect their women to wear black in public because of what is written in a hadith — written by men of course:
Abu Dawood Book 32, Hadith # 4090. Narrated Umm Salamah, Ummul Mu’minin (Radhiallaahu anha): “When the verse ‘That they should cast their outer garments over their persons’ was revealed, the women of Ansar came out as if they had crows over their heads…”
Another reason why the ruling family (Saud family) and “religious police” want their women to wear black and the men to wear white is to discourage diversity and individualism. The Saudi “authorities” think individualism is a threat to the Saud family, therefore, the emphasis is on conformity, especially for women. If a person starts projecting individuality it is interpreted as a loss of control.
One Saudi woman has written:
“It’s not really about modesty. They just want us to stay in our cubbies and belong to them. It’s about power and control.”
The “recommended” and “rewarded” white obviously only became the tradition for Saudi men and black for women to hide from Sharia law — law intended to make women as much a non-entity as possible.
In other words, the Saudi women are only used to procreate (a woman who does not have four or five children is frowned upon) and it is for this reason that their women are not allowed to leave the country without permission from a man. The “religious police” even send a text message (SMS) to a husband or brother if one of his wives or sisters is at the airport waiting for a flight. Obviously, their women have been attempting to escape from their misery, i.e., attempting to escape from the world’s largest women’s prison.
