Is Islam the Most Pro Woman and Pro Female of All Religions?
Last Updated on May 6, 2022 by Shaun Snapp
- Muslims state that Islam is a feminist and pro-woman religion.
- Let us review the evidence of Islam’s claims.
Many Muslim apologists try to hand wave away women’s treatment in Muslim countries by declaring that Islam is a feminist religion. This is quite bizarre as Muslim countries typically score the worst places for women.
In this article, we will what Muslims say about how women are treated and what Islam says about women.

Yassmin Abdel Magied proposes that Islam is “the most feminist religion.” In fact, a big part of what Muslim women do is try to convince non-Muslims that Islam is great for women.
Item #1 Women Are Deficient In Intelligence: What Do the Koran and Hadith Say About Women’s Intelligence?
Once Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) of `Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women).” They asked, “Why is it so, O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) ?” He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.” The women asked, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He said, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?” The women replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her religion.” – Sahih Bukhari Dar-us-Salam reference Hadith 304
On `Id ul Fitr or `Id ul Adha Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) went out to the Musalla. After finishing the prayer, he delivered the sermon and ordered the people to give alms. He said, “O people! Give alms.” Then he went towards the women and said. “O women! Give alms, for I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-Fire were you (women).” The women asked, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! What is the reason for it?” He replied, “O women! You curse frequently, and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. – Sahih Bukhari Dar-us-Salam reference Hadith 1462
The Prophet said, “Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?” The women said, “Yes.” He said, “This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.” – Sahih Bukhari Dar-us-Salam reference Hadith 2658
Mohammed is obvious in saying that women are deficient in intelligence. They appear to be roughly 1/2 the intelligence of men, as it requires two women to equal one man.
Item #2 Wive’s Sexual Rights: Women Are to Be Plowed by Husbands as the Husbands See Fit
At the 2:50 minute mark, David Wood shows that Mohammed stated that women are the property of men and own their genitals.
Item #3 Female Self Determination: (a. Men Excel Women, (b. Men Are In Charge of Women, (c. Women are Obedient, (d. Women Can be Beaten by Men, (e. Women Can be Beaten Until They Are Green
At the 5:11 minute mark in the video David Wood shows that Mohammed stated the following.
Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded.
As for those from whom you fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scouge (beat them) them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them – Koran 4:34
Later at the 6:30 minute mark, Mohammed’s wife complained to Mohammed that she beat a Muslim woman husband so severely that her skin turned green. Mohammed rebuked the beaten woman for being a bad wife.
Muslims receive our Golden Pinocchio Award for proposing that Islam is a feminist religion.
The outcomes for women in Islamic countries are normally the worst globally, yet both Muslims and Western liberals tell us that this has nothing to do with Islam. Mohammed specifically declared how women are to submit to men, and that wives are to be “plowed” by their husbands without concern for consent.
Mohammed promoted attacking on-Muslims, taking them as slaves, raping slaves, etc. Beyond this, Islam promotes polygamy for men, but not for women. Mohammed himself had 9 wives and countless sex slaves. Mohammed promised many sex slaves to the bedouin if they fought for him as a recruitment tool. If Islam is to be presented as a feminist religion, then the person making this presentation has no knowledge of Islam or lying.
Muslims are part of a culture where truth and objectivity are not valued. Muslims are instructed to practice the Taqiyya, lying to the non-believer (or Kafir) to defend Islam. This is why one of the least reliable sources about Islam is Muslims.
