Hymen Repair Surgery

Many Moslim women have expressed their frustration for expectations of virgin wife and the need for hymen repair surgery to please the Islamic community on the ISLAMIC WOMEN TODAY post and other places on this web site. This page is dedicated to stimulate discussion on this specific topic.

“The demand for this service arises from the fact that muslim bridegrooms ask for virgin brides, so muslim girls after this operation pretend to be virgins, while enjoying premarital sexual relationships.” -Sha Gull

…hymen does not necessary guarantee bleeding, or that some Muslim girls are born without a hymen, (when Muslim girls are told this,) they’re very surprised.Dr. Teenhardt

“Thinner than skin, the hymen is a fibrous, elastic membrane covering the vagina – one so delicate that it can be ruptured from vigorous physical exercise or even a fall, as well as by sexual intercourse.

In the past, if a woman wasn’t a virgin, she would surreptitiously pour animal blood on the bed after consummating her marriage. Today, this tradition has been replaced in Macedonia with a more sophisticated ruse – hymen repair surgery. This procedure is recognized medically as plastic surgery and is easily performed, taking only thirty minutes to one hour to repair a broken hymen.” -Afreen

While Chinese women work to produce anything that sells and raise their country to new heights as an emerging power, Muslim women remain embroiled still in proving that their worth is more than just their virginity” -Zakaria

I got married in Pakistan and on the wedding night, as usual, my husband penetrated and broke the (repaired) hymen and the blood capsule bleeded.” -Tabbusum

I am from Paris now, and have also under gone the above procedure to please my (Muslim) husband but still fearful whether he would love me throughout the life.” -Tahira

“...they also started intercourse with me many times.” -Taslima

One day a devil came between us, and we did it” -Muslim girl

I under went Hymen repair surgery in Pakistan.” -Aarfa

i got raped by our neighbor when i was 9” -Sara from Saudi Arabia

I slept with my boyfriend several times” -Sheeba

The evil of virginity for a bride is also prevalent here in Suva island of Fiji in pacific ocean.” -Nafishah

Why? Why? This HRS raises many questions: (see answers by Nazneen, share your views.)

  • Is it crime to have premarital sex?

  • Why only women have to prove their virginity, while no question is raised against a man?

  • What if you are virgin, but the hymen is broken while scoring that winning soccer goal? Will the Islamic community believe and trust you? Will Muslim parents prevent their daughters playing any sports?

  • What does the Blood on the Bed sheet proves? Does it prove any more than …you are rich and could afford the surgery?

  • Why the practice of proving virginity by publicly displaying bloody bed sheet is only in Islamic community, and not heard at all in most other communities? Will Muslim mindset ever change?

  • Who is to blame for this practice….is that Koran (promise of 72 virgins), the Sharia laws or the Muslim community?

  • What is the ultimate solution?

    Hi sisters,

    A heated debate has been witnessed about hymen repair surgtery with the majority of respondents (mostly Muslims living in the West) suggesting she should not even bother with the accusations of others as they are baseless in Islam. Of course this information is correct but it does not take into account the reality of the consequences a woman may face if she is thought not to be a virgin. When a woman’s life is literally at risk in such situations, then she should definitely think about this issue and decide how she will handle it. In fact, all women should think about it because it might not be you in this situation but your daughter, sister or friend one day in the future. Are we (the women) going to allow the misinformation to continue by teaching our daughters how to use animal blood and other false techniques to ensure their husbands see blood, or are we going to take the steps necessary in order to educate men and women both about this very important issue? Apparently, it is not even enough that the husband be educated in the field of obstetrics and gynecology (as evidenced by the professor): a major, widespread effort is needed to combat this deep-rooted ignorance.

    Western (non-Muslim) feminists often fail in their efforts to educate other societies about such issues because they approach the situation from the wrong direction, one which Muslims find offensive. They do not take into account the attrocities of the Islamic religion which state that women should be pure at the time of first marriage;(no compulsion for male to be virgin),they often suggest that women should be liberated from this idea and allowed to date and have boyfriends with whom they may choose to be intimate. This idea is unacceptable in Islam, and it should not have a place in the movement to educate Muslims openly but indirectly male indulge in such extra marital sexual matter and insist women to be virgin about the nature of the hymen. Instead, the focus should be on scientific facts and on understanding the true Islamic position on this matter.

    Another mistake nuslims often make is to blame and criticize women community to oppress women. We have already seen this in the Western movement to abolish female genital mutilation: in the beginning of this movement the world was informed that this abhorrent practice is an Islamic ritual that Muslim women must undergo as a matter of religious obligation when the fact is that this practice is un-Islamic and has its roots in pre-Islamic African traditions. While some Muslim women are circumcised, it is because Islam asked them to do that but because they live in a society in which religious knowledge has taken second place to cultural practices. With regards to the hymen issue, it is Islam to be blamed, and what’s more: this problem is limited to the Islamic world including women in Asia, South America, and even Europe and North America still believe in the myth of the hymen: just ask your mothers and grandmothers.

    All Muslims have a responsibility to fight ignorance and oppression. If you are a Muslim, the least you can do to educate others about this issue is to start with your own family…make sure that your sons and daughters both have correct information before they get married. Open the subject with your husbands, mothers, aunts and friends as much as you can within the limits of good taste as it is not always acceptable to discuss such topics openly (depending on the culture.)

    If you work in the healthcare industry, find opportunities to educate your patients even if they come to your office for another type of healthcare concern. One way to do this might be to prepare a general package of healthcare pamphlets for each patient, and the hymen can be one of the subjects covered. This way you are not embarassing or offending anyone, but you are still getting the word out. If you work in a multi-cultural society, do not forget to have the information printed in more than one language.

    Hymen reconstruction, a surgery that repairs a hymen that is no longer intact, is controversial but that doesn’t stop more and more women from having it done.

    The hymen is a tissue in vagina that tears and bleeds when one has sex for the first time. The hymen can also be “broken” by strenuous exercise, the use of tampons and other activity can cause the membrane to tear.

    So what does it matter? Who cares if the hymen is intact or not? Well, in some cultures, men do. In cultures where virginity is highly prized, it matters a great deal if the hymen is intact and if there is bleeding on the wedding night. It may be an old fashioned way of thinking, but some men expect their bride to be a virgin and there can be extreme consequences in some countries.

    Rather than stay a virgin, women are opting to experience sex before marriage, then have the hymen reconstructed. The surgery isn’t terribly expensive, around $800 in China, where it is becoming more common. Muslim countries also have a large number of women seeking the procedure.

  3. Tahira says:

    I am kind-hearted, sort of religious, I pray, I don’t lie, but losing my virginity has turned my life upside down. How it happened is a long story but the most important thing now is that this incident has turned my life into a living hell.

    I feel bad and I have been punishing myself for such a shameful thing. I know that I am not a good girl and that God is not happy with me or what I have done. This is why I decided to wear the veil. I hate it and I hate how I look and feel while wearing it but I put it on because it protects me from people staring at me or gossiping about me. I feel that everyone knows my deep dark secret and I am hiding my shame behind my veil.”

    The worst for hundreds women in our region is to be killed or punished unfairly every year in the because of the Virginity issue , while there is no many voices as an Iraqi female I heard when she refused to be one of long list of victims: “The whole issue of doubting a woman’s virginity is insulting. If my husband wants to take me to the Forensic Department to make sure I am a virgin, then I do not need such a man to start a life with nor have children with.”

    Hi sisters,

    In Islamic Egypt brides use hymen kits to “prove” virginity

    The hymen is a vaginal membrane which normally ruptures and bleeds at
    the first intercourse. For Egyptian Muslims and in other Islamic
    countries it is assurance that the bride was truly a virgin. It is
    customary
    for a new groom to soak a handkerchief in the blood, step out of the
    honeymoon chamber, and proudly wave it to a crowd of friend eagerly
    awaiting the verdict. If this does not happen, the bride may be
    abandoned.
    That could be the case if a menstruation has already removed the
    hymen,
    yet a virgin girl may face rejection because she did not bleed.
    God! What will make these animals at least part-way human? And when?

    “Conservatives condemn the Artificial Virginity Hymen Kit as
    technology that will promote promiscuity. Others say the furor over
    the device raises disturbing questions about double standards.”

    By Jeffrey Fleishman and Amro Hassan
    October 7, 2009

    Reporting from Cairo – Whether it’s seen as a clever little gadget to
    help a woman keep a secret or a devilish deception that threatens
    Islam, the Artificial Virginity Hymen Kit is not welcome in Egypt.

    The kit allows a bride who is not a virgin to pretend that she is. A
    pouch inserted into the vagina on her wedding night ruptures and leaks
    a blood-like liquid designed to trick a new husband into believing
    that his wife is chaste. It’s a wink of ingenuity to soothe a man’s
    ego and keep the dowry intact.

    Egyptian conservatives condemn the device as technology that will
    promote promiscuity in a culture that forbids premarital sex. Their
    protests are arising in a nation that over the last 40 years has gone
    from miniskirts and secularism to hijabs and religious devotion. But
    seldom have conservatives faced such brazen advertising.

    “No more worry about losing your virginity. With this product, you can
    have your first night back any time,” states the website of Gigimo, a
    Chinese mail-order company that sells the kit and other sexual
    products, including sex dolls and bondage toys, worldwide. “Add in a
    few moans and groans, you will pass through undetectable.”

    Members of the Muslim Brotherhood, which controls 20% of the seats in
    Egypt’s parliament, have called for banning the kit and arresting
    anyone selling it on the black market. Cleric Abdul Moeti Bayoumi has
    issued a fatwa urging that peddlers of the $29.90 device be charged
    with banditry and punished for spreading immorality and sin.

    “Egyptian girls are normally afraid to lose their virginity before
    marriage,” Sayed Askar, a lawmaker and member of the Muslim
    Brotherhood, recently told parliament. “A product like that can make
    it easier and tempting for girls who don’t have strong wills to commit
    such a sin. It will be a crying shame and a blot on the government if
    they allow the selling of this product in our markets.”

    Lina Samaan, an accountant, said the furor raises disturbing questions
    about her country and the double standards that often apply to women:

    “I think it’s a shame that we are discussing a product like this. If
    most girls don’t have sex prior to marriage only because they want to
    keep virginity, then there is something wrong with the way we think,”
    she said. “Sex is a right for every woman but unfortunately we started
    turning to products like these because men — even non-religious ones
    who have sex before marriage — wouldn’t marry a girl if she’s not
    virgin.”

    The emotion over the kit speaks to a traditional society that is
    increasingly pious, whether it’s rich professionals seeking moderate
    Islam on websites of progressive imams or poor and middle-class
    families adopting strict religion as a buttress to the influence of
    Western media and a loss of confidence in a state that has failed to
    provide prosperity.

    The government of President Hosni Mubarak is troubled by
    ultraconservative Islam imported from Saudi Arabia and the Persian
    Gulf. Egypt’s leading Muslim cleric, Mohammed Sayed Tantawi, is
    considering forbidding the niqab, or face veil, at the university and
    schools run by Al Azhar, Sunni Islam’s top educational institution. A
    similar edict barring nurses from wearing niqabs has been loosely
    enforced.

    The Egyptian media quoted Tantawi telling a student that the “niqab
    has nothing to do with Islam. . . . I know about religion better than
    you and your parents.”

    Many parents, however, did not grow up with the economic and social
    problems that their children face. Single women have traditionally
    lived with their families until they found a husband. But today’s
    inflation, joblessness and poverty are forcing many couples to delay
    marriage until money is saved and dowries are accumulated. With men
    and women single longer, dating, breakups and natural impulses
    challenge religion and tradition.

    “Having something like the virginity kit can cause complete mayhem
    within the Egyptian social life,” said Farid Ismael, a member of
    parliament’s health committee. “It can lead to the spreading of vice
    and the loss of all the good morals and values we had and that totally
    contradicts with our Islamic beliefs.”

    The kit — like surgical repairs to the hymen that Middle Eastern
    women have relied upon for years — is marketed to offer a sleight of
    hand. Such secrets keep prospective brides in the graces of their
    families and avoid what in rare cases are honor killings of women
    accused of promiscuity.

    Choosing to have “sex or not is something every girl and woman should
    decide regardless of the society’s perspective toward her,” said
    Samaan, the accountant. “Even if she is religious then she shouldn’t
    do it because of her religious belief and not in fear of other people
    or fear that she will not get married if she’s not a virgin.”

    “If a girl decided to have sex before marriage,” she added, “then God
    already knows it and she shouldn’t hide it from anyone else.”

    Hello readers,another evil of islamic relgion against women?

    VEILED CRIMES Some victims have been subjected to Halala an excruciating two to eight times. Sometimes a close friend of the husband or even the brother obliges.

    Holding a placard that says ‘Halala is nothing but the vilest of rapes’, the frail and waif-like Rubaiya Ahmad shudders as she recalls the darkest night in 35 years of her life – when she allowed another man into her bed.

    “I felt totally numb and dead inside. But that was the only option left to reclaim my two sons, “she says.”Moreover, the Maulvi sahib had warned me that no one would participate in my funeral procession and my family would be ostracised if I flouted the Shari’a’s command. ”

    Jalal, Rubiya’s “husband” for one night, was not particularly bothered about her turmoil. He was there for a purpose – to help his close friend salvage his marriage. A night after the Nikah and the mandatory consummation, he divorced Rubaiya without a fuss.

    It has been seven years since Rubaiya got back with her first husband, but the horror of Halala has stayed on. “I feel as if the man I married died the day someone else defiled my body,” she declares with vehemence. Her only concern now is to ensure somehow that her sons never get to know about the humiliation their mother faced, for “it would shatter them, or worse, they may blame me for the episode”.

    Last week’s meeting held by the Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan (BMMA) proved to be a catharsis of sorts for two dozen-odd victims of mental violence – namely Halala and triple Talaq. “Many who went through this could not gather enough courage to come out and face the world,” says BMMA president Naish Hasan.

    Last week, Naish created ripples in conservative Lucknow by dashing off a letter to the octogenarian president of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board. Pressing for inclusion of women’s issues on the agenda in its next executive meeting, it pointedly demanded a ban on Halala and triple Talaq, apart from recommending a codification of the Sharia to escape misinterpretation. “The response from AIMPLB, was as anticipated – nil, ” says Naish.

    In her letter, Naish mentioned seven victims who were subjected to Halala an excruciating two to eight times. One of them is Zainab Rubaiya whose husband literally turned her into a prostitute “He would pronounce ‘Talaq Talaq Talaq’ when drunk, when annoyed, when fired from his job, when clubbed by the beat constable or when I stopped his mother from hitting me with a ladle, ” she says. “Any occasion was good enough to boot me out. ”

    Zainab recollects that after every Halala, her husband would weep, standing alongside their children. “I bore Halala seven times. It’s a terrible feeling to walk down the road, knowing that everyone in the Mohalla keeps a count of your moles and curves, “she says, teary-eyed. For women like Munni, whose brother-in-law volunteered for Halala, the situation is even more humiliating. “Imagine facing him every day and pretending to be normal, ” she says.

    Contrary to the popular belief that Halala is confined to the rural belt, Naish claims that she has listed 11 such cases in the last two months in Lucknow alone. “However, women in the city are turning rebellious, “she says. “Some of them have walked out of the marriage after Halala was ordered – in fact, one woman begs in the Imambara as she believes that begging is more respectable than getting raped every sixth months. ”

    The number of Halalas is on the rise, confirms Kamal Khan, a Lucknow-based journalist. Interestingly, Halala is also fraught with risks for the men now – there are instances where the second husband has violated the terms of a fixed Halala and refused to part with the woman, often because she was prettier than his own wife. “So caution is the key word now, ” claims Kamal, who is making a documentary on the practice and has even recorded details of a Halala service run by Maulvis in Ghazipur and Faizabad. “The cleric in Akbarpur has inherited a lucrative business from his father. He conducts the marriage and divorce ceremonies. The business is growing, “he says.

    According to Khan, Halala-fixing is nowhere mentioned in Islam. The provision is made for “ittifaqan Talaq” by the second husband – meaning the woman can remarry the first husband if the second husband genuinely divorces her and the move is not carried out under a well-calculated strategy. The way it is followed today, the practice is totally against the spirit of Islam, ” he says.

    Zainab has a suggestion that she is too timid to air publicly. “If a man divorces his wife and then wants her back, let him be flogged, skinned or even sodomised,” she says. Why should the poor woman be made to suffer instead? What kind of justice is this? Even animals don’t mate on order. ”

    WHAT IS HALALA

    “After pronouncing Talaq, the wife becomes haram for the husband. If he wants to remarry the same woman, the rules are set – once the mandatory Iddat period of three months and 13 days gets over, the woman has to get married to someone else. This marriage has to be consummated. After the second husband divorces the woman, the first husband is free to marry her once again after three months and 13 days. However, Halala-fixing is strictly prohibited in Islam. “Maulana Khalid Rashid Firangimahali

    THE EVIL INSANITY THAT IS ISLAM

    There is no Islamic fundamentalism, Islamo – fascism, political Islam, Islamic terrorists, Islamic militants, jihadists, Wahhabism, radical Islam, Islamists who have hijacked the religion. There has been no hijacking. These demented souls are following exactly the teachings of the Koran – they are following in the footsteps of their founder – the man of evil – Muhammad. The reality is that Osama bin Laden is a true Muslim – a holy man of the book who is following exactly the teachings of Islam as recorded in the Koran. In the end – IT’S ALL ABOUT ISLAM STUPID INFIDEL.

    Islam is a barbaric, sexist, violent ideology (not a religion) that worships a pagan god (Allah) and women are oppressed under Islam. How could any reasonable person be ‘proud’ to follow a man who was a pedophile, endorser of clitoridectomy, slave trader, rapist, polygamist, punched his child bride and endorsed whipping/beating women and ploughing them like fields, stoned women to death, flogged his slave women for fornication while he had sex with slaves himself, raped his slaves, propositioned women and passed them round to friends, denied women equal inheritance, or equality under the law etc forever and abused and denigrated them in every way–not to mention his general sadism to others, mass murder, beheading captives, massacres, terror, assassinations, owning slaves and raping them, looting and pillaging, amputations, flogging, thievery, lying, hate, megalomania— unending horror.

    All Muslims believe the Koran is the Eternal divine word of God – the Eternal laws of God – that God authored the Koran and a copy of the Koran is in heaven. The Koran remains for all Muslims, not just “fundamentalists,” the uncreated word of God Himself. It is valid for all times and places forever; its ideas are absolutely true and beyond all criticism. To question it is to question the very word of God, and hence blasphemous. A Muslim’s duty is to believe it and obey its divine commands without question.

    A Muslim has the full right granted by God to do the following to infidels:

    Infidels can be murdered by Muslims as an ETERNAL LAW OF GOD. Not only can they all be murdered but the wives and daughters of the murdered infidels can be taken as booty, raped, and then sold as slaves. That’s right – God permits the raping of female slaves. Indeed in Islam – rape is not a only a sexual weapon – it is a weapon of war. Having murdered the woman’s man, Muslims can now – sanctioned by the law of God complete their final humiliation and domination of her body. Her sons can be sold into slavery. If there is any doubt as to the boy’s age of puberty – Muslims can pull down their pants and inspect their genital area for hairs. Even the slightest sign of hair growth means that these young men can be taken and beheaded. These infidel women can then be bred like cattle and their off spring sold for profit. As an ETERNAL LAW OF GOD, Muslims can then loot and pillage the property of the murdered infidels, and must share 1/5 of the booty obtained from the sale of boys and women and the proceeds of looting with God. Muslims can own slaves as an ETERNAL LAW OF GOD. Slavery has been an integral institutionalized part of Islam since it’s creation by Muhammad.

    Muhammad owned 40 slaves. Muhammad was allowed by a ETERNAL LAW OF God to rape his slaves ALLTHIS EVIL ARE THE LAWS OF GOD AS SET DOWN IN THE KORAN. Not only that but righteous Muslims who slay and are slain in the service of God can ascend as martyrs to the evil sexually depraved Islamic Paradise of eternal erections and virgins who re – generate as virgins after each sex act. THIS IS THEIR ETERNAL REWARD FOR OBEYING THESE EVIL LAWS OF GOD.

    What I have described are not sins or crimes against the Laws of God – THEY ARE THE LAWS OF GOD.

    Ask yourself the following questions:

    How can any Normal, rational, reasonable person read the Koran with it’s language of pure hate, terror, violence – a blue print of murder, war, slaughter and not immediately realize that these are not the words/teachings of any God – not the teachings of any God – The Creator of the Universe – a God of Peace and Goodness but the words and teachings of a 7th century Arab chieftain – Muhammad.

    Slavery is one of the most evil and vile institutions ever created by humanity. Slavery is an integral institution central to Islam. As a Muslim you can kill non – Muslims, take their wives and daughters as sex slaves, rape them at will, loot and pillage, sell the sons and women and daughters into slavery and then MUST share the immoral proceeds with God. Can you imagine such evil insanity?

    To any rational, normal person reading these Kornic verses (and these are just a small sample of the 1000’s and 1000.s of the total teachings of hate, terror, cruelty, depravity etc that are Islam.) the claim by Muslims that they are reading the words, teachings, laws of God is insanity.

    How can you be a normal person and believe in a religion that preaches a Paradise of big breasted, big eyed sexual nymphs called Hurs that you can molest with eternal hard ons for all eternity in the presence of God who teaches you how to engage in orgies, group sex etc.

    How can you be normal and believe that by fulfilling Kornic teaching 9:111- “Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain” you will go to this demented sexual whorehouse of God and not directly to hell and damnation.

    9:111 is the teaching that has been used by Muhammad and his lieutenants to mobilize the suicide bombers, the beheaders, the jihadists to kill and slaughter millions. An estimated 270,000,000 people have been murdered by Islam because of 9:111 over the past 1400 years.

    No God would ever teach 9:111 for if God gave such a law He would be the greatest killer in all the universe – not an God of love and peace and goodness but a mass murderer on the scale of a Hitler or Stalin or Muhammad.

    9:29 Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.

    9:29 is the declaration of war as a law of God against the infidels. The LAW OF WAR is permanent and will not end until all the infidels are murdered or pay a subrogation tax or convert to Islam. This is criminal. Again and again – this is not God’s law – this is Muhammad’s law. There is no way you can claim to be a peace loving Muslim and leave this evil in the Koran.

    9:50 When the sacred months have passed away, THEN SLAY THE IDOLATERS (unbelievers) WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM, AND TAKE THEM CAPTIVES AND BESIEGE THEM AND LIE IN WAIT FOR THEM IN EVERY AMBUSH, then if they repent and keep up prayer [become believers] and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them

    2.178 O true believers, the law of retaliation is ordained you for the slain: The free [shall die] for the free, and the slave for a slave, and a woman for a woman.

    No God who is God would ever teach the following words of violence, war, terror, murder. Can you imagine that Muslims are allowed by God to murder a free men or a slave or a woman in retaliation for the killing of one of their freeman, slave, or woman. Is this a rational, reasonable human thought. You can hear Muhammad yelling at his followers – “ Slay the Idoltars” giving instructions of war – “ lie in wait for them in every ambush” Do you think God, Creator of the universe would order murder and micro manage these murders telling Muhammad how to kill his prey. Muhammad gave these instructions – “lie in ambush.” All the Kornic teachings are the teachings of Muhammad. He created the ALLAH (the ANTI GOD) of the Koran. Muhammad invented ALLAH (THE ANTI GOD),and staged the revelations to give him authority over his followers and justification to war against the neighboring tribes of so called idoltars (pagan Arabs) and Jews and Christians – the first infidels that faced the murderous onslaught of this killer and murderous conquering ideology.

    When Muhammad spoke, he was speaking the word of God – the laws of God – that had to be obeyed without question. How could the word of God be challenged. By morphing into God and His messenger, Muhammad set up the perfect totalitarian system whereby his rule could not be challenged.

    Not one word of the Koran was from God. All the teachings of the Koran were from Muhammad’s invention – Allah (the ANTI GOD). MUHAMMAD WAS ALLAH(the ANTI GOD) and ALLAH (the ANTI GOD) WAS MUHAMMAD. The ALLAH of the Koran never existed except in the mind of Muhammad.

    No God would ever create the depraved Paradise of Islam described as:

    “Men with protracted erections and engaging themselves in sex present a scene worth watching: most of them, if not all, remain locked, like the dogs, with the Hurs and the young boys for a protracted period of time. Lying on the top of the Hurs (this position changes, on the basis of the men’s fancy), and riding the boys from their back, they create a scene that no human has seen before in his lifetime. In a sentence, it is a mass orgy.

    God loves orgy, but it does not cause arousal to His own sexual desires, as He is impotent. He, however, visits His honored guests from time to time to make sure they have been doing fine in the Gardens. He helps them with guidance where they need it in order to make their stay in them most pleasurable. After all, this is what He had promised them all along.”

    This immoral evil Paradise would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic. Millions have been murdered so their Muslim murderers can ascend to this evil Paradise.

    Again quoting– “Lo! Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because the Garden will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain” 9:111

    Those who “fight in the way of ALLAH” and kill and are killed will achieve martyrdom and enter this Paradise (Garden).

    On 911 – the 19 Muslims on those planes were obeying 9:111 so they could ascend to the highest levels of Paradise and each be rewarded with a 1000 virgins that they could molest and sexually abuse for all eternity. The eternal hard – on promised to Muslim men who achieve martyrdom is a powerful motivation.

    How can any normal person believe in Islam with such a pagan Paradise, believe in such an evil Allah (the ANTI GOD) , pray to such an evil book – the Koran.

    “As for the righteous (Muslims)…We (Allah) shall wed them to beautiful virgins with lustrous eyes” – Q 44:51-54

    Estimates vary as to the number of virgins (2 to 72) per male Muslim in heaven (Sahih Bukhari 4:54:476, Al-Tirmidhi 2562). Actually the Tirmidhi Hadith states that 72 wives is the minimum, perhaps for the not so devout Muslims in the 7th heaven.

    Mohammed said: “The least reward for the people of paradise is 80,000 servants and 72 wives” – Al-Tirmidhi 2562, 2687.

    Prophets, suicide bombers and other Islamic martyrs in Islam’s first heaven may get up to 1000 virgins each. For maximum enjoyment of these numerous wives, Muslim men are guaranteed superb erection in heaven:

    Paradise for sexual intercourse”. It was questioned: “O prophet of Allah! can he do that?” He said: “He will be given the strength of one hundred persons.'” (Mishkat al-Masabih 4:42:24; Sunan al-Tirmidhi 2536).

    When asked, “Do we have sex in Paradise?” Ibn Kathir, the renowned Islamic scholar explained: ‘Yes, by him who holds my soul in his hand, and it will be done…and when the sex is finished she will return pure and virgin again’ – Tafsir Ibn Kathir.

    Al-Suyuti (15th century) another famous Islamic theologian and Quranic comentator adds: “Each time we sleep with a houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected (Muslims in heaven) never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world …Each chosen Muslim will marry seventy houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetising vaginas.”

    With its offer of eternal erections and gratifying heavenly sex with virgins who “re-virginate” after sex, its little wonder Muslim terrorists, suicide bombers and other Islamic martyrs are in a hurry to enter Islam’s brothel paradise.

    Do you believe that God selected an evil murderer Muhammad to create a religion and then commanded that anyone who refused to believe in God’s religion – refused to believe the evil teachings of God and His Messenger – Muhammad must be murdered. That believers in God’s religion have the moral right to murder all human beings who refuse to convert to Islam, rape their wives and daughters, etc and if they are killed in the process of fulfilling 9:111 they will ascend to the immoral and sexually depraved, sick Islamic paradise to rape and molest virgins for all eternity. THIS IS TRUE INSANITY.

    ISLAM IS TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY BOGUS – A SHAM AND A FRAUD.

    Hello every body,

    “Honor Killing” is Absolutely Islamic!

    by Syed Kamran Mirza

    Honor killings, which occur with shocking regularity in certain parts of the Middle East and South Asia, target women whose actions – actual or suspected – violate the honor of their family, an honor which is thought to depend on the sexual purity of its female members. Victims are always being killed/slaughtered mercilessly by her own family members. Honor killing is a manifestation of global phenomenon in general and Muslim nations in particular. Since this terrible inhumane practice does exists only among the Muslims of the world—very often civilized people do blame Islam as the precursor of this dreadful act. Most others do not agree with this notion at all; and they try to put the blame on the tribal/cultural practice, and do not consider Islam is anyway responsible for it. In this essay I shall analyze the real issues, cause and origin, and pattern of this heinous act amongst the Muslims of the world to postulate if there is any link, or incitements that originates from the very core of Islam.

    What is honor killing?

    Honor killing is the bone chilling horrific cruelty committed by the family members—father, mother, brothers, brother-in-laws, even in some cases own sisters also. In this terrible episode the victim is always the daughter/sister or other blood related young women who get killed. Perpetrators are always the family members stated above. Family honor is one of the core values of Arab society. Anything from speaking with an unrelated man, to rumored pre-marital loss of virginity, to an extra-marital affair, refuses forced marriages; marry according to their will; or even women and girls who have been raped—can stain or destroy the family honor. Therefore, family members (parents, brothers, or sisters) kill the victim in order to remove the stain or maintain, and protect the honor of the family. Killers are given light sentences, sometimes with little or no jail time at all. The killers mainly defend their act of murder by referring to the Koran and Islam. Family guardian will say that they are merely following the directives set down in their Islamic ethical beliefs.

    Honor killing is committed by the family members – father, mother, brothers, brother-in-laws and even in some cases sisters

    These barbaric killings occur only to save the honor of the family, and not for any animosity or for wealth or gold. In 100% of cases—the killers have no animosity, rather they love the girl as their own daughter or sister, but they kill the girl anyway upon their ethical compulsion to save their family honor, or to erase family stigmas. The victims cry, beg for their life but the family members become merciless (out of their ethical prejudices and also religious burden of fear) and kill the victim. After killing family members usually mourn and cry for the victim (usually loving daughter or sister) but feel solace that they have done the right thing to save their family honor.

    And this kind of cruel killings to save family honor had happened, still happening, and will remain to happen—only to a Muslim family. Honor killings happen only to some designated Muslim nations such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Egypt, Sudan, the Gaza strip and the West Bank (Palestine), Jordan, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nigeria, Somalia, Turkey, Iran and some other south and central Asian countries. Bangladesh though a Muslim majority country—regular pattern of honor killings never happened as of today. But it is not unknown or impossible to record some stray incidences in Bangladeshi rural Muslim family (only) in which girl was poisoned by family members, or asked to commit suicide after being impregnated by unwed sexual intercourse. However, this same kind of case history was never heard, or recorded in the non-Muslim family of Bangladesh.

    Honor killing is different from other killings

    Muslims would have us believe that Islam was spread peacefully by Muslims traveling from country to country, city to city, door to door preaching the teachings of Peace and Love and Goodness from Allah and His Messenger.

    This is not what happened.

    Obeying the teachings of Islam – Muslims fell upon the infidel civilizations and peoples with unimaginable savagery and rivers of blood flowed across the pages of human history.

    Islam is coated in blood of the innocents. In the past 1400 years, Islam has murdered 270,000,000 nonbelievers.

    80 million Hindus killed.

    60 million Christians were slaughtered

    10 million Buddhists died.

    120 million Africans butchered

    As stated countless times already – ALL Muslims MUST believe the Koran is the divine word of God – the Laws of God. All Muslims MUST believe that God authored the Koran and a copy of the Koran is in heaven. The Koran remains for all Muslims, not just “fundamentalists,” the uncreated word of God Himself. It is valid for all times and places forever; its ideas are absolutely true and beyond all criticism. To question it is to question the very word of God, and hence blasphemous. A Muslim’s duty is to believe it and obey its divine commands without question.

    Muslim can be murdered (beheaded) for doing any of the following:

    Reviling Allah or his Messenger; (2) being sarcastic about ‘Allah’s name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat'; (3) denying any verse of the Quran or ‘anything which by scholarly consensus belongs to it, or to add a verse that does not belong to it'; (4) holding that ‘any of Allah’s messengers or prophets are liars, or to deny their being sent'; (5) reviling the religion of Islam; (6) being sarcastic about any ruling of the Sacred Law; (7) denying that Allah intended ‘the Prophet’s message . . . to be the religion followed by the entire world.’

    To any rational, normal person reading the teachings of the Koran (and these are just a small sample of the 1000’s and 1000’s of the teachings of hate, terror, cruelty, depravity etc that is Islam) the claim by Muslims that they are reading the words, teachings, laws of God – that the Koran is authored by God and a copy of the Koran rests in Heaven is insanity.

    There is no Islamic fundamentalism, Islamo – fascism, political Islam, Islamic terrorists, Islamic militants, jihadists, Wahhabism, radical Islam etc who have hijacked the religion. There has been no hijacking. These demented souls are following EXACTLY the teachings of the Koran – they are following in the footsteps of their founder – the man of evil – Muhammad. In the end – IT’S ALL ABOUT ISLAM STUPID INFIDEL.

    ISLAM IS AN EVIL TOTALITARIAN IDEOLOGY NOT A RELIGION

    Islam is a declaration of war against infidels. Islam is an ideology of WAR. The Koran is a BOOK OF WAR. Allah is a GOD OF WAR. This war is permanent until all the infidels have converted, or paid a submission tax or have been murdered. These are the ETERNAL LAWS OF ALLAH AS SET DOWN IN THE KORAN

    Infidels can be murdered by Muslims as an ETERNAL LAW OF ALLAH. Not only can they all be murdered but the wives and daughters of the murdered infidels can be taken as booty, raped, and then sold as slaves. Their sons can be sold into slavery. If there is any doubt as to the boy’s age of puberty – Muslims can pull down their pants and inspect their genital area for hairs. Even the slightest sign of hair growth means that these young men can be taken and beheaded. As an ETERNAL LAW OF ALLAH, Muslims can then loot and pillage the property of the murdered infidels, and must share the booty obtained from the sale of boys and women and the proceeds of looting with ALLAH. Muslims can own slaves as an ETERNAL LAW OF ALLAH. Slavery has been a central part of Islam since it’s creation by Muhammad. ALL THIS EVIL ARE THE ETERNAL LAWS OF ALLAH AS SET DOWN IN THE KORAN. THESE LAWS OF ALLAH ARE FOREVER. Not only that but righteous Muslims who slay and are slain murdering infidels can ascend as martyrs to the evil, sexually degenerate, depraved Islamic Paradise of eternal erections and virgins who re – generate as virgins after each sex act. THIS IS THEIR ETERNAL REWARD FOR OBEYING THESE EVIL LAWS OF ALLAH.

    Again, the above ETERNAL LAWS OF ALLAH allow murder, slavery, looting and pillaging and if you are killed in the process of obeying these Laws then you can ascend to a paradise of full breasted, lustrous eyed virgins to sexually molest for all eternity. ALLAH permits the raping of female slaves. As already shown in Islam – rape is not just a sexual weapon – it is a weapon of war. Having murdered the woman’s man, Muslims can now – sanctioned by ETERNAL LAWS OF ALLAH complete their final humiliation and domination of her body.

    Unlimited sex and money were powerful motivations for Muslims to grab their swords, climb on their horses and ride off into the sunset to bring war, death and destruction to the infidels.

    India paid an horrific price. The world famous historian, Will Durant has written in his Story of Civilization that “the Mohammedan conquest of India was probably the bloodiest story in history”.

    Buddhism was devastated.

    Persia’s civilization disappeared from history.

    The holocaust of slavery was imposed on large parts of black Africa. Slavery has been an integral part of Islam since its creation by Muhammad. Islam institutionalized slavery and made its existence legal and an ETERNAL LAW of ALLAH (read articles relating to slavery further in this Website). Islam was a major player in the black African slave trade – an historical fact not well known today. Also not taught is the fact that 1.5 million Europeans were taken as slaves by Muslims.

    The fact that throughout Islam’s history, this slaughter of the innocents in the worst ways imaginable, murdered in the name of and to the greater glory of God is an obscenity. The so called men of ALLAH responsible for this carnage who have – through the millenniums – for Power, Domination, and Control of society unleashed this evil deserve to be in Hell.

    To take man’s natural Concept of God, a conception of Peace and Love and Goodness – an all Wise, all merciful, all Loving God for all mankind, and turn God – by bastardizing his teachings into a murderous ALLAH (the ANTI GOD) of hate, terror, intolerance, death and destruction is one of the greatest sins that can be committed against God. Islam will remain forever a black historical stain smearing all human history.

  9. Rubina says:

    Imam Dr Taj Hargey, chairman of the Muslim Educational Centre in Oxford, called on the Muslim community to try to reverse the trend.

    He said: ‘The situation is very common in the Middle East where there is a huge scandal that can lead to divorce or even honour killings if there are not bloodstained bed sheets after the wedding night.

    ‘It is very disappointing that Muslim women in this country feel they need to lead a double life, resorting to subterfuge surgery.

    ‘That is not conducive to either their psychological or spiritual health and it is hypocrisy and double standards because Muslim men are doing as they please with women.’

    There have been calls for a ban on NHS surgeons carrying out the operations for women wanting to marry as virgins.

    But a Department of Health spokesman insisted that hymen repair operations take place on the NHS only to ensure a patient’s physical or psychological health.

    She said: ‘The NHS does not fund hymen repair operations for cultural reasons. All operations on the NHS are on the basis of clinical need.

    ‘Operations to repair the hymen are only carried out exceptionally to secure physical or psychological demand.

    Hello Satyenji,

    We are missing your rational comments on Hymen Repair surgery or using artificial hymen kit by muslim girls to avoid disgrace on wedding night.

    Please comment on it.

  11. Sha Gul says:

    Hi Admn. and muslim sisters,

    Millions of thanks to all of you for posting such a good collection of texts based on realities and uncivilized character of muslim society to make girls to lead a miserable and disgraceful life.

    What a discriminatory attitude, males need not to be virgin, but females should be virgin irrespective of marrying so many girls previously?

    Hell to such mentally sick and made islamic people?

  12. Noor Jehan says:

    An Iranian woman wants to save her future husband from ‘Infamy’ and ‘disgraced woman.’ The Muslims of Kurdish persuasion present their bloody sheet to the parents after the wedding night.

    “Many of the Muslim woman have had sexual intercourse several times, then comes the wedding and the reality catches up with them.”

    It has happened that a Muslim girl has been raped by her family and then forced to prove her virginity.

    There are cases when the restoration of the Muslim hymen is the only option due to the health concerns of the Muslim woman. The human rights organization, Terre des Femmes, disagrees on the hymenorrhaphie issue.

    “The social significance of virginity is often utilized to deny women their sexual freedom and to restrict their lifestyles.”

    Dr. Teenhardt has long worked with Muslim women seeking hymen restoration. It usually turns out that the Muslim women know very little about their own bodies and sexuality. “If I tell them that hymen does not necessary guarantee bleeding, or that some Muslim girls are born without a hymen, they’re very surprised.”

    The gynecologist teaches the Muslim women how virginity can be faked.

    In cases where the Muslim woman is in great distress and afraid of deadly honor violence, the doctor is prepared to perform the outpatient surgery. “We want to prevent mental and physical suffering.” The cost is about 200 euros.

    How many thousands of hymen restoration operations are done in Europe is unknown. The demand is huge, shows the offers by plastic surgeons, some charging up to 2100 euros for the procedure.

    One advert promises: For only 24.95 Euros (including shipping) you can save your honor.

    The tips and addresses are also provided by Internet forums. “My gynecologist operates in outpatient basis and it will cost only 100 euros,” writes a Muslim woman.

    Dr, Tennhardt emphasizes that much more important than tip for doctors and cost is to tackle the issue of Muslim woman through societal shift of thinking. The young Muslim women should be encouraged to demand their right to fuck anyone, anytime, anywhere.

    Life Saving Surgery
    Restoring virgiinty @ £2,000 pounds

    My virginity was restored in a delicate operation just last week, and I honestly view it as life-saving surgery,” says Aisha.

    “If my husband cannot prove to his family that I am a virgin, I would be hounded, ostracised and sent home in disgrace. My father, who is a devout Muslim, would regard it as the ultimate shame.

    “The entire family could be cast out from the friends and society they hold dear, and I honestly believe that one of my fanatically religious cousins or uncles might kill me in revenge, to purge them of my sins. Incredible as it may seem, honour killings are still accepted within our religion.

    “Ever since my family arranged this marriage for me, I’ve been terrified that, on my wedding night, my secret would come out. It has only been since my surgery last week that I’ve actually been able to sleep properly. Now, I can look forward to my marriage.” says Iranian girl so confidently, not worried at all.

    Virgin Territory (Hymen restoration surgeries in Syria)

    News of artificial hymens hitting the regional market led to huge debate in Egypt and resulted in an official ban on the product. The reaction in Syria, by contrast, was surprisingly mild.

    When rumours of artificial hymens being imported into Syria first began to circulate last summer, few believed they could be true. Yet when Syrian journalist Souror Nasraldeen began researching the product, she soon discovered that the Gigimo Artificial Virginity Hymen kit was indeed no hoax – for just USD 15 Syrian women could now win back their virginity in the space of 20 minutes. Made in Japan and distributed by a Chinese company called Gigimo, the kit, which can be bought online, consists of a pouch which is to be inserted 20 minutes before sexual intercourse and leaks a blood-like substance when broken.

    “No more worry about losing your virginity,” the Gigimo website says in broken English. “With this product, you can have your first night back anytime.”

    Outraged by the concept, Nasraldeen published one of the first articles in the region about the device in Day Press, a Syrian daily news website, last August. “The artificial hymen is the product of an old mentality which links honour to a woman’s virginity, that’s why I’m completely against it,” she told Syria Today. “This product creates unbalanced families which are built on lies right from the wedding night. I wanted my article to be a wake-up call.”

    Muted public reaction

    While Syria’s state-run media paid little attention to the story, internet users did and the article racked up a huge number of hits on the Day Press website. Yet while most Syrian internet users seemed relatively accepting of the product, finding it intriguing at worst, controversy in the Egyptian blogosphere began to mount.

    “There were many angry men making comments who feared that this product would encourage women to lie about their virginity,” Nasraldeen said. “Some even accused Day Press of promoting the product.”

    When BBC Arabic, Radio Netherlands Worldwide and Egypt’s press latched on to the article – and the device – the storm grew. In Egypt, conservative politicians and religious figures instigated a debate which grew so intense that the Ministry of Health officially banned the import of the product into the country.

    By contrast, the Syrian authorities did not even comment. And what little public reaction there was in the country took a much milder tone, focusing on the issue of virginity and virtue. “Many people said the problem was not with the product itself, but with the promotion of the idea that a woman’s virginity is a good measure of her morality,” Nasraleen said.

    One month after the article was published Sham FM dedicated an hour and a half of its talk show Hiwar al-Yawm (Today’s Dialogue) to the importance of virginity before marriage, a topic rarely discussed openly in Syrian society or the media.

    “Most of the phone calls to the show were by men, some of whom felt angry and deceived by the idea that a woman might fake her virginity,” Qusay ‘Amama, producer and presenter of the radio show, said. One such caller was Ammar, a young man from Jobar, who discovered after nine years of marriage that his wife used to sleep with men from the Gulf for money and had pretended to be a virgin on their wedding night.

    “I can’t divorce her because we already have three children but I can’t bear living with her anymore,” he said “I feel so betrayed.”

    Other callers expressed more liberal views. “I don’t care whether the woman I marry is a virgin or not.” Ahmad Hamada said. “It’s superficial to measure honour by a piece of skin.”

    The argument for legalisation

    For many Syrians, the concept behind the Gigimo Artificial Hymen kit is nothing new. Hymen restoration surgery, while rarely spoken about, has long been carried out in the country.

    “Syrian doctors have been mending hymens for ages, this artificial hymen is only the latest trend in the world of virginity reconstruction in Syria,” Da’ed Mousa, a Syrian lawyer specialising in family law and women’s issues, said. “I don’t know why people would make such a big fuss about it now.”

    Doctors point out, however, that unlike hymen restoration surgery, the risks of using an artificial hymen are still unknown. According to its advertising, the Gigimo Artificial Hymen kit is made of natural albumen glue and methylcellulose. Apart from this, however, there is a complete absence of medical information about the product.

    “This product has been manufactured for commercial purposes and I don’t know what it’s made of,” Jury el-Tali, a Syrian gynaecologist, said. “I certainly don’t recommend using it.”

    With this in mind, Mohammad Habash, Syrian MP and head of the Islamic Studies Centre in Damascus, told Day Press that if the artificial hymen is being brought into the country anyway, it would be better for Syria’s Ministry of Health to legally import it. This way, he claims, the ministry could test the product to see if it meets the country’s health standards. Furthermore, it could also restrict the distribution of the product to women who lost their virginity as a result of rape, accident or because of health issues.

    Like Habash, Mahmoud ‘Akkam, a mufti from Aleppo, defends a woman’s right to reconstructive surgery.

    “Reconstructing your virginity is a personal issue and women are free to do whatever they want with their bodies as long as it doesn’t put their health at risk,” ‘Akkam said.

    “Unfortunately we live in a society which stigmatises women who lose their virginity before marriage; therefore they should have the right to surgery or to use such products. If a woman has had premarital sex, however, she shouldn’t lie to her husband and deceive him by using a fake hymen, especially if virginity is an issue for him.”

    This moderate response by religious figures, coupled with the local press’s indifference towards the issue, is why little controversy has mounted over the device in Syria, according to ‘Amama.

    “The Egyptian press and religious figures provoked Egyptians by launching a fierce campaign against smuggling the artificial hymen into the Syrian and Egyptian markets,” ‘Amama said. “It was a kind of propaganda against the artificial hymen that didn’t take hold in Syria.”

    Ahmad Barkawi, professor of philosophy and social sciences at the University of Damascus, says the issue stirred up little controversy because of the lack of a dominant conservative trend in society.

    He believes that had the artificial hymen appeared on the Syrian market 10 years ago, however, the reaction would have been different.

    “While I wouldn’t say that Syrian society is growing more liberal, the growing demand for different methods of virginity reconstruction during the last 10 years does signal a change in young Syrians’ attitude to sex,” he said.

    “They want to have premarital sex without confronting Syria’s largely traditional society. Now they can say: ‘You want an intact hymen? Here, have a Chinese one’.”

    thoughts on “Virgin Territory (Hymen restoration surgeries it’s a revelation to read an article discussing women virginity in Syrian press
    it draws an image of a different Syria, not the Syria I left 13 years ago.
    men from different walks of life not shying away from the topic and basically saying “get over it, there is bigger issues in life”
    I hope what I read is representative of a large portion of Syrian society this days
    it makes me feel like I want to be part of a such progressive and dynamic society, knowing how taboo was women virginity issue only 13 years ago

    Young Syrians are indeed more open and willing to talk about issues that used to be a taboo a decade ago and a large portion has liberal views.

    However, truth be told, while this large portion of Syrian society is growing more liberal, an equal portion is growing more conservative. Yet society maintains a healthy balance as neither trends have prevailed so far. And what’s more important, both parties are tolerant to each other.

    “If a woman has had premarital sex, however, she shouldn’t lie to her husband and deceive him by using a fake hymen, especially if virginity is an issue for him.”

    Now that’s pure bullshit! The most likely reason a woman would undergo this kind of surgery is if she believes that for her husband virginity matters. If it did not matter to her husband, she has no business doing the surgery in the first place!

  14. Dr.Lubna says:

    Hello sisters

    The hymen can also be broken by masturbation (particularly with dildos or vibrators) and by the use of tampons.

    The hymen is a thin membrane, which in virgins is found at the lower end of the vagina. An old name for it is still quite popular: the virgin’s veil.

    When a woman starts to have intercourse, the tip of the penis generally breaks through the hymen. This often causes slight bleeding.

    However, one study has suggested that only 43 per cent of woman bleed when they lose their virginity.

    The hymen can also be broken by masturbation (particularly with dildos or vibrators) and by the use of tampons.

    Traditionally, some doctors have claimed that it can be broken by exercise and particularly by horse riding or cycling. But the truth of that belief is uncertain.

    Structure of the hymen

    If you think of the vagina as a tunnel (which it is), just imagine that someone has draped a sheet across the entrance of the tunnel, so that most of it is blocked off. That’s what the hymen is like.

    Most females never see their own hymens, but in fact the membrane is just about visible if you part the vulval lips (the labia) and hold a mirror a few inches away.

    The hymen is pinkish, and often it’s shaped like a crescent, though many other forms may be seen.

    In nearly all young women, there’s a large gap in the membrane. In other words, it doesn’t block off the vagina completely.

    This is important, because the hole in the hymen allows the menstrual blood to come through when the girl starts having periods.

    Imperforate hymen

    Unfortunately, in a few young females there’s no gap in the hymen, and this causes real problems when puberty arrives.

    What usually happens in these cases of ‘imperforate hymen’ is that the girl has monthly symptoms of periods, such as abdominal pain and feeling bloated, but no bleeding occurs.

    Inside her, the volume of menstrual blood gradually builds up over several months. It fills the vagina and then the womb and possibly the Fallopian tubes too.

    This is a condition called haematocolpos.

    Once someone has made the diagnosis, the treatment of haematocolpos is fairly easy.

    A gynaecologist admits the young woman to hospital and cuts through the hymen to let all the blood out. The remains of the hymen are then cut away.

    Once this operation has been performed, the patient should have normal periods. Later on, she should be able to enjoy sex and to have babies.

    Tough hymen

    In days gone by, it used to be claimed that many young women had ‘tough hymens’ and this made intercourse difficult or impossible. Some of them underwent surgery, in which a doctor cut through or removed their hymens.

    However, about 40 years ago the researches of a group of British family planning doctors showed that in many of these cases, the hymen wasn’t tough at all.

    The reason why sex was difficult or painful was that the patients had vaginismus, a common psychological condition in which the muscles tighten up whenever any approach is made to the vagina. The family planning medical officers were able to cure the majority of young women by teaching them special relaxation techniques.

    Having said that, it’s true that in a few cases the hymen genuinely is rather tough, and this creates problems with intercourse. Removing it should solve the difficulty.

    There are other rare structural problems of the vagina that can be cured by surgery.

    Hymen tags

    After the hymen has been broken, a ring of little pink ‘tags’ is left at the lower end of the vagina. They are also known medically as carunculae myrtiformes.

    Usually they just shrink up over the years, so that by mid-life there is very little left of them.

    But very occasionally, hymeneal tags may cause discomfort or pain during intercourse.

    In such cases, it’s well worth trying a sex lubricant. But if that doesn’t improve matters, a gynaecologist can do a small operation to remove the tags.

    Hymen reconstruction (restoration of virginity)

    In some cultures, it’s very important for a young woman to appear to be a virgin when she gets married.

    The fact is that most bridegrooms wouldn’t have the faintest idea whether a female is virgin or not!

    But communities that set great store by premarital chastity tend to believe that all virgins will bleed when their hymens are broken.

    And there’s often an expectation that if the female is chaste, she must stain the sheet with blood when she first has sex.

    Because of such traditions, there’s a thriving market in so-called ‘restoration of virginity’ operations.

    A large number of surgeons do this ‘op’ (for hefty fees) in cities such as London, Tokyo and New York and on the Indian sub-continent.

    It’s not available on the NHS. The procedure is known as ‘hymenoplasty’ or ‘hymenorrhaphy.’

    What it involves is raising a small flap of vaginal lining, so that there appears to be a hymen again. Stitching hymeneal tags together may help.

    If it’s done well, the operation creates a small obstruction that will be noted by the bridegroom. When it’s broken it should bleed slightly.

    Of course, the operation doesn’t really restore your virginity, and legally you remain non-virgin. Also, you should remember that to have this operation is to practise a deception on your new husband – and perhaps on his family too. If they ever found out, you would technically be vulnerable to legal action.

    A new trend that has emerged this year in the USA and the UK is for women to ask for a hymenoplasty even though they have actually had a child!

    I have noted that some surgeons are now stating on their websites that they will not do the operation under these circumstances

  15. Gulnaz says:

    Virginity is something which has its own importance. It is sacred for someone and a normal body part for someone else. In some of the cultures, people consider it necessary to be present before marriage. These days it is very common that people lose their virginity at an early stage.

    However, it has been seen that the trend has been reversed these days. People are trying to regain their virginity with the help of science. The technique which is used to regain the virginity or at times known as hymen repair is hymenoplasty.

    Whenever a person involves in intercourse, the hymen get disrupted resulting in loss of virginity. It is not always that hymen break due to intercourse, these days people are indulging in lots of physical exercises which at times become reason of breakage of hymen and loss of virginity.

    Hymenoplasty is nothing but repairing of the hymen which is present at the vaginal opening. It is not all women in the world which indulge in the act of Hymenoplasty. Whenever a person wishes to indulge in Hymenplasty, she must consult the doctor immediately.

    Research has shown that there are basically three kinds of women who are indulged in Hymenoplasty. These are:

    * The women who are culturally and religiously bound – there are certain religion in the world which considers that virginity should not be loosed before marriage and if done it is considered as a sin.

    * Those women who have lost their virginity due to certain tragic happening in their lives such as rape, sexual ill treatment etc;

    * Another kind of women that need to indulge in Hymenoplasty are those women who are in relationship for long and wants to gift there would be husband with no virginity loss.

    Thus, mainly these kinds of women who normally indulge in Hymenoplasty.

    The duration of conducting Hymenoplasty depends upon the doctor. It is not a surgery which takes place for long duration. It is short treatment which is normally for an about 30-45 minutes. The stiches which are used during the treatment generally take 8 weeks to dissolve completely.

    Cost Of Hymenoplasty

    The cost of Hymenoplasty can be high for someone and low for another one depending upon her financial status. Normally the price ranges between $2,500 and $6,000 (USD).

    Type of hymen repair

    There are various types of Hymen repair treatment available. Such as:

    * Simple Hymenoplasty: in this kind of treatment the tear portion of the hymen is joined together by piecing it together. In this the hymen tissue is pulled in order to close the vagina. There is no symptoms that generate after the surgery that is infection or fever.

    * Alloplant: it is done when the abovementioned technique is not applicable. In this a tear is inserted which behaves like a Hymen Repair.

    Though the treatment of Hymenoplasty is very simple but still it is advisable to undergo the treatment of Hymenoplasty by some experienced physician in order to get everything well and on time. The doctor must have performed the treatment before also to get the accuracy. If anything goes wrong it results in unnecessary pain and unnecessary wastage of time and energy.

    Hymen Reconstruction Surgery Gains Popularity among muslim girls

    Hymen reconstruction, a surgery that repairs a hymen that is no longer intact, is controversial but that doesn’t stop more and more women from having it done.

    The hymen is a tissue in vagina that tears and bleeds when one has sex for the first time. The hymen can also be “broken” by strenuous exercise, the use of tampons and other activity can cause the membrane to tear.

    So what does it matter? Who cares if the hymen is intact or not? Well, in some cultures, men do. In cultures where virginity is highly prized, it matters a great deal if the hymen is intact and if there is bleeding on the wedding night. It may be an old fashioned way of thinking, but some men expect their bride to be a virgin and there can be extreme consequences in some countries.

    Rather than stay a virgin, women are opting to experience sex before marriage, then have the hymen reconstructed. The surgery isn’t terribly expensive, around $800 in China, where it is becoming more common. Muslim countries also have a large number of women seeking the procedure.

  17. Taslima says:

    My mother used purdah. She wore a burqa with a net cover in front of the face. It reminded me of the meatsafes in my grandmother’s house. One had a net door made of cloth, the other of metal. But the objective was the same: keeping the meat safe. My mother was put under a burqa by her conservative family. They told her that wearing a burqa would mean obeying Allah.

    Women too have sexual urges. So why didn’t Allah start the purdah for men? Clearly, He treated them on unequal terms.

    And if you obey Allah, He would be happy with you and not let you burn in hellfire. My mother was afraid of Allah and also of her own father. He would threaten her with grave consequences if she didn’t wear the burqa. She was also afraid of the men in the neighbourhood, who could have shamed her. Even her husband was a source of fear, for he could do anything to her if she disobeyed him.

    As a young girl, I used to nag her: Ma, don’t you suffocate in this veil? Don’t you feel all dark inside? Don’t you feel breathless? Don’t you feel angry? Don’t you ever feel like throwing it off? My mother kept mum. She couldn’t do anything about it. But I did. When I was sixteen, I was presented a burqa by one of my relatives. I threw it away.

    The custom of purdah is not new. It dates back to 300 BC. The women of aristocratic Assyrian families used purdah. Ordinary women and prostitutes were not allowed purdah. In the middle ages, even Anglo-Saxon women used to cover their hair and chin and hide their faces behind a cloth or similar object. This purdah system was obviously not religious. The religious purdah is used by Catholic nuns and Mormons, though for the latter only during religious ceremonies and rituals. For Muslim women, however, such religious purdah is not limited to specific rituals but mandatory for their daily life outside the purview of religion.

    A couple of months ago, at the height of the purdah controversy, Shabana Azmi asserted that the Quran doesn’t say anything about wearing the burqa. She’s mistaken. This is what the Quran says:

    “Tell the faithful women that they must keep their gaze focused below/on the ground and cover their sexual organs. They must not put their beauty and their jewellery on display. They must hide their breasts behind a purdah. They must not exhibit their beauty to anybody except their husbands, brothers, nephews, womenfolk, servants, eunuch employees and children. They must not move their legs briskly while walking because then much of their bodies can get exposed.” (Sura Al Noor 24:31)

    “Oh nabi, please tell your wives and daughters and faithful women to wear a covering dress on their bodies. That would be good. Then nobody can recognise them and harrass them. Allah is merciful and kind.” (Sura Al Hijaab 33: 59)

    Even the Hadis –a collection of the words of Prophet Mohammed, his opinion on various subjects and also about his work, written by those close to him– talks extensively of the purdah for women. Women must cover their whole body before going out, they should not go before unknown men, they should not go to the mosque to read the namaaz, they should not go for any funeral.

    There are many views on why and how the Islamic purdah started. One view has it that Prophet Mohammed became very poor after spending all the wealth of his first wife. At that time, in Arabia, the poor had to go to the open desert and plains for relieving themselves and even their sexual needs. The Prophet’s wives too had to do the same. He had told his wives that “I give you permission to go out and carry out your natural work”. (Bukhari Hadis first volume book 4 No. 149). And this is what his wives started doing accordingly. One day, Prophet Mohammed’s disciple Uman complained to him that these women were very uncomfortable because they were instantly recognisable while relieving themselves. Umar proposed a cover but Prophet Mohammed ignored it. Then the Prophet asked Allah for advice and he laid down the Ayat (33:59) (Bukhari Hadis Book 026 No. 5397).

    This is the history of the purdah, according to the Hadis. But the question is: since Arab men too relieved themselves in the open, why didn’t Allah start the purdah for men? Clearly, Allah doesn’t treat men and women as equals, else there would be purdah for both! Men are higher than women. So women have to be made walking prisons and men can remain free birds.

    Another view is that the purdah was introduced to separate women from servants. This originates from stories in the Hadis. One story in the Bukhari Hadis goes thus: After winning the Khyber War, Prophet Mohammed took over all the properties of the enemy, including their women. One of these women was called Safia. One of the Prophet’s disciples sought to know her status. He replied: “If tomorrow you see that Safia is going around covered, under purdah, then she is going to be a wife. If you see her uncovered, that means I’ve decided to make her my servant.”

    The third view comes from this story. Prophet Mohammed’s wife Ayesha was very beautiful. His friends were often found staring at her with fascination. This clearly upset the Prophet. So the Quran has an Ayat that says, “Oh friends of the prophet or holy men, never go to your friend’s house without an invitation. And if you do go, don’t go and ask anything of their wives”. It is to resist the greedy eyes of friends, disciples or male guests that the purdah system came into being. First it was applicable to only the wives of the holy men, and later it was extended to all Muslim women. Purdah means covering the entire body except for the eyes, wrist and feet. Nowadays, some women practise the purdah by only covering their hair. That is not what is written in the Hadis Quran. Frankly, covering just the hair is not Islamic purdah in the strict sense.

    In the early Islamic period, Prophet Mohammed started the practice of covering the feet of women. Within 100 years of his death, purdah spread across the entire Middle East. Women were covered by an extra layer of clothing. They were forbidden to go out of the house, or in front of unknown men. Their lives were hemmed into a tight regime: stay at home, cook, clean the house, bear children and bring them up. In this way, one section of the people was separated by purdah, quarantined and covered.

    Why are women covered? Because they are sex objects. Because when men see them, they are roused. Why should women have to be penalised for men’s sexual problems? Even women have sexual urges. But men are not covered for that. In no religion formulated by men are women considered to have a separate existence, or as human beings having desires and opinions separate from men’s. The purdah rules humiliate not only women but men too. If women walk about without purdah, it’s as if men will look at them with lustful eyes, or pounce on them, or rape them. Do they lose all their senses when they see any woman without burqa?

    My question to Shabana and her supporters, who argue that the Quran says nothing about purdah is: If the Quran advises women to use purdah, should they do so? My answer is, No. Irrespective of which book says it, which person advises, whoever commands, women should not have purdah. No veil, no chador, no hijab, no burqa, no headscarf. Women should not use any of these things because all these are instruments of disrespect. These are symbols of women’s oppression. Through them, women are told that they are but the property of men, objects for their use. These coverings are used to keep women passive and submissive. Women are told to wear them so that they cannot exist with their self-respect, honour, confidence, separate identity, own opinion and ideals intact. So that they cannot stand on their own two feet and live with their head held high and their spine strong and erect.

    Some 1,500 years ago, it was decided for an individual’s personal reasons that women should have purdah and since then millions of Muslim women all over the world have had to suffer it. So many old customs have died a natural death, but not purdah. Instead, of late, there has been a mad craze to revive it. Covering a woman’s head means covering her brain and ensuring that it doesn’t work. If women’s brains worked properly, they’d have long ago thrown off these veils and burqas imposed on them by a religious and patriarchal regime.

    What should women do? They should protest against this discrimination. They should proclaim a war against the wrongs and ill-treatment meted out to them for hundreds of years. They should snatch from the men their freedom and their rights. They should throw away this apparel of discrimination and burn their burqas.

    John 8

    King James Version (KJV)

    8 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

    2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

    3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

    4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

    5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

    6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

    7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

    8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

    9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

    10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

    11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

    12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

    13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.

    14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

    15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

    16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

    17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

    18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.

    19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

    20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

    21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.

    22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.

    23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

    24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

    25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.

    26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.

    27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.

    28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

    29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

    30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.

    31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

    32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

    33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

    34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

    35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

    36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

    37 I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

    38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

    39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

    40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

    41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

    42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

    43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

    44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

    46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

    47 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

    48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

    49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.

    50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.

    51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

    52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

    53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?

    54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:

    55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.

    56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

    57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?

    58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

    59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

  20. Farhana says:

    Zahid,s mother also used artificial hymen kit and bleeded fake blood on the wedding night and his father shown blood tainted sheet to all his family member in the morning.

  21. Bahar says:

    Hi Muslim sisters,

    No more worry about losing your virginity. With this product, you can have your first night back anytime. Insert this artificial hymen into your vagina carefully. It will expand a little and make you feel tight. When your lover penetrates, it will ooze out a liquid that looks like blood, not too much but just the right amount. Add in a few moans and groans, you will pass through undetectable. It’s easy to use, clinically proven non-toxic to humans and has no side effects, no pain to use and no allergic reaction.

    When I first saw the product, I assumed it was a toy for couples to use if they want to act out a fantasy that requires the woman to be a virgin, and I’m sure that’s what a lot of people use it for. But the description itself seems to imply that women could also use it to fool an unknowing partner into thinking they are virgins, which puts a different spin on it.

    The other thing that’s interesting is the way in which this constructs virginity: as a purely physical state, rather than a mental or spiritual one. It’s sort of the flipside of the “re-virginization” ceremonies some evangelical groups in the U.S. have, where people are defined as virgins again due to perceived spiritual cleansing and recommitment to religious ideals and abstinence.

    You might pair this with a discussion of the chapter “The Disappearance of Virginity” in Joan Jacobs Blumberg’s book The Body Project. She looks at how perceptions about virginity, and specifically the hymen, have changed since the Victorian Era. In the Victorian period, parents would sometimes take their daughters to doctors to certify their virginity; virginity was defined by the presence of the hymen. Of course, this is a ridiculous way to decide whether a woman is a virgin, since many women tear their hymens long before they have sex and it’s possible to have sex and still leave the hymen at least partially attached (not to mention that even intact hymens vary widely, with some almost entirely covering the vaginal opening and others barely visible). Blumberg traces changing ideas about the importance of the hymen, as well as the patient-doctor relationship. Today it would be difficult to find a doctor who would agree to “certify” a girl’s virginity or report her sexual status to her parents, due to increased acceptance of the privacy of information patients provide to doctors. But parents are also increasingly unconcerned about the status of their daughters’ hymens, regardless. Hymens simply aren’t the obsession they once were, the sign of a young woman’s moral worth.

  22. F.Zaidy says:

    The restoration of Muslim virginity is in demand in Germany. The Muslim women in need of new, unused hymen, are mostly older, 20 to 25-years-old Muslimahs. They come from Turkey, Balkans, Iran and the Arab countries.

    The Muslim women call themselves Zeda, Aysegul, Cancun and Samar. They met anonymously on the Internet and discuss the vital issue for them: “I urgently need information on where a Muslim woman can get her hymen sewn restoration; what would it cost – please help me,” writes of them in the lifestyle and health forum. She received many responses within minutes.

    On the WWW the Muslim women can share their fears and discuss Muslim issues undisturbed. Only a few could talk about this taboo topic within the family. The loss of virginity in Muslim world is as much disgrace as unwanted pregnancy. The Muslim family honor is equated with the purity of their daughters.

    The Berlin’s family planning center receives numerous request for information on Muslim hymen restoration every week. “The demand has increased dramatically,” says Dr. Christiane Tennhardt. The woman are mostly between 20 to 25-years old and came from Turkey, Balkans, Iran and other Arab countries. “Most are not veiled and speak perfect German.”

    The parents must be presented with the bloody sheet

    Th story is the same: An Iranian woman wants to save her future husband from ‘Infamy’ and ‘disgraced woman.’ The Muslims of Kurdish persuasion present their bloody sheet to the parents after the wedding night.

    “Many of the Muslim woman have had sexual intercourse several times, then comes the wedding and the reality catches up with them.”

    It has happened that a Muslim girl has been raped by her family and then forced to prove her virginity.

    There are cases when the restoration of the Muslim hymen is the only option due to the health concerns of the Muslim woman. The human rights organization, Terre des Femmes, disagrees on the hymenorrhaphie issue.

    “The social significance of virginity is often utilized to deny women their sexual freedom and to restrict their lifestyles.”

    Dr. Teenhardt has long worked with Muslim women seeking hymen restoration. It usually turns out that the Muslim women know very little about their own bodies and sexuality. “If I tell them that hymen does not necessary guarantee bleeding, or that some Muslim girls are born without a hymen, they’re very surprised.”

    The gynecologist teaches the Muslim women how virginity can be faked.

    In cases where the Muslim woman is in great distress and afraid of deadly honor violence, the doctor is prepared to perform the outpatient surgery. “We want to prevent mental and physical suffering.” The cost is about 200 euros.

    How many thousands of hymen restoration operations are done in Europe is unknown. The demand is huge, shows the offers by plastic surgeons, some charging up to 2100 euros for the procedure.

    One advert promises: For only 24.95 Euros (including shipping) you can save your honor.

    The tips and addresses are also provided by Internet forums. “My gynecologist operates in outpatient basis and it will cost only 100 euros,” writes a Muslim woman.

    Dr, Tennhardt emphasizes that much more important than tip for doctors and cost is to tackle the issue of Muslim woman through societal shift of thinking. The young Muslim women should be encouraged to demand their right to fuck anyone, anytime, anywhere.

    Life Saving Surgery
    Restoring virgiinty @ £2,000 pounds

    My virginity was restored in a delicate operation just last week, and I honestly view it as life-saving surgery,” says Aisha.

    “If my husband cannot prove to his family that I am a virgin, I would be hounded, ostracised and sent home in disgrace. My father, who is a devout Muslim, would regard it as the ultimate shame.

    “The entire family could be cast out from the friends and society they hold dear, and I honestly believe that one of my fanatically religious cousins or uncles might kill me in revenge, to purge them of my sins. Incredible as it may seem, honour killings are still accepted within our religion.

    “Ever since my family arranged this marriage for me, I’ve been terrified that, on my wedding night, my secret would come out. It has only been since my surgery last week that I’ve actually been able to sleep properly. Now, I can look forward to my marriage.”

  23. Shakeela says:

    The Artificial Hymen Kit is exactly what it sounds like: Sealed in silver packages and nestled in a bed of pink satin in a small wooden box, the kit contains two “prosthetic membranes.” They will “restore your virginity in five minutes with this new technologically advanced product. Kiss your deep dark secret goodbye and marry in confidence,” says the advertisement at HymenShop.com. For 30 dollars, Hymen Shop ships from Hong Kong to just about anywhere in the world. Simply click, buy, insert, and voilà: virginity restored.

    In nations where virginity can be a literal issue of life and death, the Artificial Hymen Kit is controversial: Egyptian lawmakers attempted to restrict access after a blogger imported a kit from China. But its origin is less dire. Invented in the early nineties by a Japanese kinesiologist, distributors say the kits are popular in the fetish, porn, and sex industries. (The manufacturer credits “prostitutes in nightclubs on the gulf of Thailand” for popularizing it.) Among the first to market the product internationally, Hymen Shop now sells thousands of units each year, primarily to the United States.

    When I broke my first, real hymen in my teens — during an over-the-jeans dry-humping session with Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King playing in the background — I wasn’t even aware it was happening. So test-driving the Artificial Hymen Kit was an opportunity to lose my virginity all over again.

    After sacrificing one hymen to The Cut’s photo lab, I arrive at my boyfriend’s house with three “prosthetic membranes” in my purse. Despite a request that I wine and dine him in exchange for participation, I find he has cooked dinner and is drinking wine while playing video games with intense focus. He can do whatever he wants tonight because he’s lending his penis to science, journalism, and, worst of all, to the Internet, where his mother and seventh grade math teacher will have access to it.

    The directions on my Artificial Hymen Kit (color: “Joan of Arc Red”) are printed in Chinese on the inside lid of the box. Translated into English for my benefit, they explain there is a fifteen-minute window after the fake hymen has been inserted to have sex. This vagina will self-destruct in fifteen minutes. After a brief bedroom warm-up session with my boyfriend, I excuse myself to the bathroom, kit and instructions in hand.

    I open the first packet and take out what looks like a clear plastic Listerine strip folded into eighths. There is a gruesome amount of bright red liquid inside the folds. I “completely unfold the hymen,” as step No. 4 in the instructions indicates. Some dried-up flakes of red fall from the plastic. I don’t remember red dust at my original hymen-loss, but maybe every hymen-loss is a snowflake unto itself: a tiny and unique horror story floating in the wintertime of our innocence.

    “Using an index finger, insert the artificial hymen into the vagina.” Before I can decipher whether the hymen should go in blood-side up or blood-side down— rolled up like a joint? crumpled into a ball?— the film dissolves in my hands. I am covered in bright red dye. I am down one hymen. There is red on every surface of the sink. CSI: New York will need the whole hour to solve this one.

    I tear open the next packet, panicked that the clamminess of my hands will ruin my second fake hymen. Dissolve once, shame on me. Dissolve twice, and — oh God, what am I doing with my life?

    With some prodding, I stuff it in my vagina like decorative tissue paper in a fancy gift bag, blood-side down. The film clings to my finger, now the color of a red-velvet cupcake. As I Lady Macbeth my hands in the sink, I start to laugh maniacally. Nothing is funny. Fearing laughter will shake my hymen loose, I sprint back to the bedroom in search of a horizontal position.

    I discover my boyfriend has spread a red and white beach towel beside him on the bed. It says PUERTO RICO. He got it on vacation with his family, he tells me.

    Missionary is the only option here. During the delicate deflowering process there is no need for the Funny Business. As soon as he’s in, I shriek-yodel question after question: Can you feel it? Is it gross? Does it hurt? Should we stop? Are we breaking up? Are you mad at me? What are you thinking about? What about now? Can you feel it? What about now? I sound like a squawking turkey.

    My boyfriend answers all of the questions in the order they are received: He can’t feel it. Everything feels normal. He’s not mad. We’re not breaking up. Mostly he’s just thinking about sex. Still can’t feel it. No, not even now.

    I can’t feel that slimy piece of plastic, either. I worry it has been pushed further inside me, but after seeing how quickly the first one melted, I know it must be gone.

    Soon our banter has dissolved like the fake hymen in my vagina, and we are quiet. Me because I am imagining the Magic School Bus journey my liquefied hymen is making through my body, and him because he is just having regular sex with me, and we generally don’t “riff” when we’re doing that.

    Then we are done. Our crotches look like the inside of a lava lamp.

    Red Medical Food Dye (the official term, according to Hymen Shop Support staff) is smeared everywhere: his genitals, my genitals, the towel, our hands, and somehow on a T-shirt on the floor. He tells me there is a red thumbprint on my butt. We go to the bathroom to clean ourselves. While scrubbing, we discuss and process what just happened.

    First, we conclude, the “hymen” part of this device is besides the point. What’s to break? It dissolved instantly. But does that matter? I don’t know anyone who’s actually felt a hymen break mid-intercourse, and suspect that those utilizing the artificial hymen in earnest don’t, either. (Except for the fetish stars, maybe. But I doubt they mind illusion.) My e-mail buddy at Hymen Shop explains, “The first and foremost purpose of the artificial hymen kit is to provide the visual effect human being blood coming out of the vagina as a proof of virginity. The ‘breaking’ sensation in the intercourse is a second priority, and it’s an elusive one since it is very subjective with the individual man and the construct of the female hymen.”

    My boyfriend and I agree, however, that enjoyable sex is still possible, even when both parties are covered in fake blood the color of cherry Kool-Aid.

    The next morning, other than the fact that I am still peeing bioluminescent cake dye, nothing unusual is going on. (Except, yikes, that is extremely unusual. I vow to drink a lot of water.) In a fit of curiosity, I load myself with the final remaining hymen and ride a bike. Kool-Aid for everywhere. I can only assume the same is true for horseback riding, pogo sticks, and every other hymen-breaking activity from the Judy Blume canon.

    Later that afternoon, I get a text with the following: “My bathroom is covered in red dye. It’s all over the floor and the rug and shower. There must have been a huge blob of it somewhere that we smeared everywhere.”

    I respond, “New phone, who is this?”

  24. Veena Malik says:

    Hello readers,

    Who would have thought a wee little packet of fake blood could threaten to unravel an entire culture. But so great is the threat of the “Artificial Virginity Hymen” — a kit that helps women fake their virginity — that prominent Egyptian conservatives are calling for an all-out ban. Not only that, they are also demanding the exile of anyone who traffics it.

    Longtime Broadsheet readers will no doubt remember the item at issue, which is made in China and sold by an online sex shop. Once inserted into the vagina, the gizmo leaks fake blood. The product hasn’t changed since I puzzled over it last year, but the price sure has: It’s selling for a pricey $30, instead of $14.90. It seems the creators have realized that, while similar technology sells for just a couple bucks at a Halloween superstore, they have hit a marketing gold mine. They’ve also hit a cultural nerve.

    The kit “encourages illicit sexual relations,” declared Abdel Moati Bayoumi, a respected Egyptian religious scholar, according to the Associated Press. He added: “I think this should absolutely not be allowed to be exported because it brings more harm than benefits. Whoever does it should be punished.” On a similar note, Sheik Sayed Askar said, as the AP paraphrased it, that “the kit will make it easier for Egyptian women to give in to temptation.” On the Muslim Brotherhood Web site, he wrote: “It will be a mark of shame on the ruling party if it allowed this product to enter the market.”

    If a woman in the Middle East fails to bleed on her wedding night, she can face shame, abuse and even death. Sure, many women don’t bleed when they lose their virginity. Yes, hymens are often torn through non-sexual activities. True, there exists no way to prove a woman’s virginity. But, la-la-la, they aren’t listening to any of that medically accurate naysaying! Bloody the sheet or else.

    The truth is Muslim women are already artificially making that happen, regardless of whether they’re virgins (see above: Virgins don’t always bleed). Outlawing the “Artificial Virginity Hymen” won’t change that. Egyptian women will still have hymenoplasties, which are outlawed in the country but take place nonetheless, get doctors’ certification of chastity — which can be forged or real, at least to the extent that such a thing can be legitimate — or come up with a creative home remedy. Given the high stakes, this will always be the case. To think otherwise is willful denial or utter foolishness, or both.

  25. Saira says:

    This is all very sad. The problem is that Muslims will murder their young girls if they bring shame on the family. The shame comes from the edicts of the Koran. This leads to the murder of young Muslim girls.

    The problem arises, among many others, is that Muslims have been allowed to settle in a free Western society. Our free society permits Muslim girls to behave in the manner of other non-Muslim girls – in fact the peer pressure must be there to be like others. And when they do, it brings down the wrath of Muslims, including her family. If Muslims were not here, then first, the peer pressure for Muslim girls to behave like free women would not be there. Second, in their own Muslim society, girls would know the consequence of their behaviour, and would desist.

    We have done no favours to Muslim girls by letting Muslims into the West. All we have done is to increase the murder rate of Muslim girls. This is not all. As a consequence of the murder, family members end up in jail, thus destroying the whole family. This is a bad situation, in which Muslim families in the West are destroyed as a consequence of doing what their belief tells them to do.

  26. Saira says:

    If you’re a woman in a conservative Muslim country, you had better bleed on your wedding night. If you don’t, your husband or his family will know you aren’t a virgin. For that, you could be beaten or killed.

    If you’re a man, on the other hand, all you have to do on your wedding night is ejaculate. Nobody expects you to bleed or produce any other proof of virginity.

    Some day, this barbaric and hypocritical tradition will end. Until then, the best we can do is fool it. You want blood on your wedding night? We’ll give you blood. Fake blood.

    For many years, doctors have quietly offered hymenoplasty , a procedure that restores your hymen so you can fake virginity on your wedding night. And now you don’t even need a doctor. Joseph Freeman of the Associated Press reports:

    The Artificial Virginity Hymen kit, distributed by the Chinese company Gigimo, costs about $30. It is intended to help newly married women fool their husbands into believing they are virgins—culturally important in a conservative Middle East where sex before marriage is considered by many to be illicit. The product leaks a blood-like substance when inserted and broken. Gigimo advertises shipping to every Arab country.

    On its Web site, Gigimo explains more about the product :

    Artificial Virginity Hymen is created from Kyoto, Japan at 1993. it was first introduced to the locals, then it gets famous and spread to Thailand at 1995 and now available in South East Asia, South Asia and in the Middle East countries. It is mainly made of natural albumin, medical use inflation element and water-soluble base medicinal preparation which have no side effect. Insert this artificial hymen into your vagina carefully. It will expand a little and make you feel tight. When your lover penetrate, it will ooze out a liquid that look like blood not too much but just the right amount. Add in a few moans and groan, you will pass through undetectable.

    Outraged Egyptian lawmakers are demanding a ban on the kit. Freeman reports:

    Sheik Sayed Askar, a member of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood who is on the parliamentary committee on religious affairs, said the kit will make it easier for Egyptian women to give in to temptation. He demanded the government take responsibility for fighting the product. … Prominent Egyptian religious scholar Abdel Moati Bayoumi said anyone who imports the artificial hymen should be punished. “This product encourages illicit sexual relations. Islamic culture forbids these relations except within the confines of marriage,” Bayoumi said. … “If this thing enters Egypt, the country is going to go to waste. God protect us,” commented a reader on the Web site of Egyptian newspaper Al-Youm Al-Sabie.

    Pause for a moment to consider what these men are asking God to protect them from: a cheap, mass-produced insert that releases fake blood. It’s the technical equivalent of a Halloween gag. But to them, this is no gag. It’s an offense against God.

    In this way, the artificial hymen serves as a useful test of religious idiocy. If a $30 item that leaks fake blood violates your faith so profoundly that you must ban it, then what you have isn’t really a faith. It’s a fetish. And your fetish won’t survive globalization.

    Sex within marriage is a perfectly good idea. It encourages commitment, structures relationships, builds a foundation for society, and secures a healthy environment for raising children. But rigid proscriptions against premarital sex are excessive, futile, and unnecessary. They breed hypocrisy and contempt for authority. In the age of the artificial hymen, you can still preach and practice fidelity. Just don’t ask God to protect your sick craving for wedding-night blood. She can’t and won’t

  27. Waheeda says:

    Hello ladies.

    So this is fun. If you’ve recently (or not so recently) misplaced your hymen, accidentally damaged it, given it a bit of a tear –or during first sexual encounter with BF,lost virginity, dont worry,we have got the product for you TO SAVE YOUR MARRIED LIFE WITH GRACE AND RESPECT.

    DONT WORRY, THIS IS NOT A CHEATING, WHEN YOUR MUSLIM HUSBAND IS EXEMPTED FROM PROVING HIS VIRGINITY, WHY MUSLIM GIRLS ARE ASKED?

    This fabulous Artificial Hymen Repair Kit can give you back that little scrap of membrane that you miss so dearly. And no, we’re not joking because you can’t make up stuff this perverse.

    In short, this is a delicate sachet of fake blood that you insert into your vagina like a diaphragm and then it ah, dissolves or ‘tears’ during intercourse. Fun!

    The Hong Kong producers of this little gem of a product, promise on their website (HymenShop.com – yes, really!) to “restore your virginity in five minutes with this new technologically advanced product. Kiss your deep dark secret goodbye and marry in confidence.”

    The Hymen Repair Kit, which you can pick up for a STEAL at just $3.70 Australian, comes in a range of colours including the feisty ‘Joan of Arc Red’ (pictured) and other options such as ‘Dusty Outback Ochre’, ‘Aeroplane Jelly Raspberry’ and ‘Lady Macbeth Crimson.’ (Ok, we made those colours up but you get the gist).

    Journalist, Leah Beckman thought she had better try the kit out and see for herself just how it worked. She wrote about the (hilarious) experience for for NY Magazine:

    After a brief bedroom warm-up session with my boyfriend, I excuse myself to the bathroom, kit and instructions in hand. I open the first packet and take out what looks like a clear plastic Listerine strip folded into eighths. There is a gruesome amount of bright red liquid inside the folds. I “completely unfold the hymen,” as step No. 4 in the instructions indicates.

    Some dried-up flakes of red fall from the plastic. I don’t remember red dust at my original hymen-loss, but maybe every hymen-loss is a snowflake unto itself: a tiny and unique horror story floating in the wintertime of our innocence.

    Missionary is the only option here. During the delicate deflowering process there is no need for the Funny Business. As soon as he’s in, I shriek-yodel question after question: Can you feel it? Is it gross? Does it hurt? Should we stop? Are we breaking up? Are you mad at me? What are you thinking about? What about now? Can you feel it? What about now? I sound like a squawking turkey.

    My boyfriend answers all of the questions in the order they are received: He can’t feel it. Everything feels normal. He’s not mad. We’re not breaking up. Mostly he’s just thinking about sex. Still can’t feel it. No, not even now.

    Soon our banter has dissolved like the fake hymen in my vagina, and we are quiet.

Then we are done. Our crotches look like the inside of a lava lamp.

    Hymen Repair Kit. The contents…

    Now of course there is the bigger issue – in some countries around the world, virginity is actually a matter of great import. Women have been killed over less. In fact some Muslim countries have even sought to restrict the importation of the Artificial Hymen Kit but that’s a whole other post…

    But for the Australian market? We don’t see a stampede to buy fake hymens. Would you seriously want to stick a piece of red cellophane up your cervix just so you could make a pitch for the ‘thrill’ of first time sex again? We polled the office and there were very few women who put their hands up to re-live the virginity-losing experience.

    So if it’s a little dull in the bedroom we suggest that you avoid the whole re-enact-your-virginity thing (regardless of the bargain basement price) and go with something like this or this.

    MUHAMMAD THE PEDOPHILE MONASTER

    PEDOPHILIA : [NL] (1906): sexual perversion in which children are the preferred sexual object.

    [Scriptural Evidence] Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64: Sahih Bukhari [the most venerated and authentic Islamic source]

    Narrated ‘Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).

    Montgomerry Watts states: “Muhammed seemed to have felt a SPECIAL TENDERNESS towards children.”

    The Moral Standard Muslims look upto, Prophet Mohammad : ” … Sounds like child molestation to me. It does not appear to me that the founder of Islam was a man of peace or good moral character. ” – Anonymous.

    Muslims Practicing Islam :

    Compilation of Ishaq b. Mansur al-Kasaj, …found in Chapters on Marriage and Divorce, translated by Spectorsky, in the ruling that a woman “IS OF AGE WHEN SHE HAS REACHED HER NINTH YEAR !”

    ” Two iraqi men, aged 28 amd 34, who live in lincoln, nebraska, married two iraqi girls, aged 13 and 14, in a private Islamic ceremony attended by family and friends. The two men have been arrested, charged with the sexual assault of a child and could be sentenced to 50 years of prison because the marriage age in nebraska is at least 17 years of age. Their attorney argued that the men didn’t know about the law and that they were merely following their religious custom of courtship and marriage. Do they really do such things in today’s Iraq? ” – Abdul Abdi

    ” The point I would like to make is that The Muslim world has been exploiting young girls for quite sometime now in the name of Islam. These are child abuse and it does occur on a daily basis throughout Islamic world, including your birth place, Somalia. Rich Arab Muslims have been caught on the exit ports of India and Malaysia leaving with clueless, helpless girls clutching onto their dolls and other meager belongings. ” -Faisal Hassan.

    “Now you want to celebrate American man made system while ignoring one of the things islamic shariah APPROVES. What a shameful statement?!!. Please note: Islamically, there is NOTHING wrong of marrying fifteen OR LESS as long as they have period and full feminhood signs. Any women reach the age of period can be married if and when she decided to ratify the contract of marraige.. That was the way our Prophet peace upon him got marry Caasha [ Ayesha ] . And that was the way our great Somali women delivered the majority of us. I DON’T THINK YOU WILL DARE TO SAY OUR PROPHET (PBUH) EXPLOITED ON CAASHA. [ Ayesha / Aisha ]” – daud7@aol.com (Daud7)

    Inspired By Islam (What the most famous cleric has to say):

    From Khomeini’s book, “Tahrirolvasyleh”, fourth volume, Darol Elm, Gom, Iran, 1990 :

    A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However he should not penetrate, sodomising the child is OK. If the man penetrates and damages the child then he should be responsible for her subsistence throughout her life. This girl, however does not count as one of his four permanent wives. The man will not be eligible to marry the girls sister.

    […]
    It is better for a girl to marry in such a time when she would begin menstruation at her husband’s house rather than her father’s home. Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven.

    How it all began ( a long time ago in the isolated deserts of Arabia) :

    Already, when Aisha (the daughter of Abu Bakr, Mohammad’s closest friend and unquestioning ally) was about 4-5 years old Muhammad started dreaming of a union with her [Ref: SAHIKH BUKHARI, 5:235] and he wasted no time in realizing his dreams, inspite of the fact that object of his dreams was a mere child.Perhaps you want to assume that it is “normal” for a 50+ year old man to dream of marrying a 4-5 old child, and then ACTUALLY ask for her hand at 6?

    Is it normal for an oversexed old man (Muhammad had over 9 wives and concubines) to dream of a union with a 4-5 year old girl?

    Muhammad ( SAW ) was basically oversexed, his sexual relationship with Aisha is a special case, which fits his strong need for a larger latitude to satisfy his sexual urge, as is witnessed by:

    “The Prophet used to visit all his wives in a round, during the day and night and they were eleven in number.” I asked Anas, “Had the Prophet the strength for it?” Anas replied, “We used to say that the Prophet was given the strength of thirty (men).” And Sa’id said on the authority of Qatada that Anas had told him about nine wives only (not eleven).” [Bukhari.1:268]

    When she was 6, Muhammad asked Abu Bakr, Aisha’s father, for her hand. Abu Bakr thought it was improper, because, as he said “I am your brother”; Muhammad brushed aside Abu Bakr’s reservation by saying that it was perfectly lawful for him to marry Aisha [ Ref: SAHIKH BUKHAR I7:18].

    What happened to ” there is no compulsion in matters of religion ?” Anyway what compulsion did Muhhammad need being a prophet his word was law, he restricted men to only four wives when he himself had more than four, that was a convenient exemption for Muhhammad.

    So, Aisha was betrothed to Muhammad, and 3 years later, i.e. when Aisha was 9, the marriage was consumed. And Muhammad was 53 then [SAHIH BUKHARI 5:236,7:64,7:65,7:88] .

    The 3 year waiting period probably had to do with the fact that at that time Aisha had contracted some disease, whereby she, temporarily lost her hair. Aisha was then socially and psychologically still a child as is evidenced by the fact that she was still given to her toys, she was unaware of what was happening around her, and her playmates behave as would the children at present times [Sahih Bukhari 8:151,5:234].

    Aisha became Muhammad’s favourite wife. And the sexuality in the relationship was predominant [ SAHIH BUKHARI .1.270, 3:36, 7:6, 3:148, 3:149, 3:150, 7:142, IbnSa’d 1pg165 ]. Later, Aisha was to be called the “mother of believers”.

    If you are wandering, yes, the relationship was pedophilic.

    When did the sexual relations between Prophet Mohammad and his child bride begin?

    Unfortunately we do not have any video recordings of such events. Neither can we expect that there would be any explicit statements regarding this. In any case it is certain that she had NOT reached puberty when she moved into Muhammad’s house, which in itself, contrary to the prevailing social norms, is a tacit implication that he may indulge in whatever fantasies he may have had when he asked for Aisha’s hand. And Muhammad did have fantasies.

    Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151:

    Narrated ‘Aisha: I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah’s Apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, BUT the Prophet would call them to join and play with me. (The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for ‘Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13)

    It is, however, very unlikely that Muhammad would have waited for the onset of the menses; or at most it could have been just after the 1st drops. The evidence is necessarily indirect.

    # His strong desire to “graze of the (tree) of which nothing has been eaten before”, as his other wives had not been virgins.

    # Menses or fasting do not reduce Muhammad’s desire and potency for sex. His nightly rounds to his wives(lastly 12-13) did require more than average potency.

    # New additions to his harem lead to intensive sexual activity, e.g. arrival of Maria lead to increased, initial spurt of sexual activity to the neglect of others .

    # The intervals between prayers are used for quick stands “I used to wash the traces of Janaba (semen) from the clothes of the Prophet and he used to go for prayers while traces of water were still on it.”

    # Other wives try to please Muhammad by sacrificing their turns in favor of Aisha.

    # During his last fatal illness he cries: “Where will I be tomorrow? Where will I be tomorrow?”, seeking Aisha’s turn.

    Prophet Say: Marry Young Virgins

    Volume 7, Book 62, Number 17:

    Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:

    When I got married, Allah’s Apostle said to me, “What type of lady have you married?” I replied, “I have married a matron’ He said, “Why, don’t you have a liking for the young virgins and for fondling them?” Jabir also said: Allah’s Apostle said, “Why didn’t you marry a young girl so that you might play with her and she with you?’

    Silent Children :

    Volume 7, Book 62, Number 67:

    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    The Prophet said, “A matron should not be given in marriage except after consulting her; and a virgin should not be given in marriage except after her permission.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! How can we know her permission?” He said, “Her silence (indicates her permission).”

    Where sex is akin to a crime, silence is admission of your guilt. What a corruption of “fitrah” ( human nature).

    What religion condones the destruction of childhood? What are we who daily avow our undying love for Allah to do against a system that ruthlessly oppresses its youngest and brightest ?

    ——————————————————————————–

    What was Aisha’s age? I have heard other figures … (A question also known as: How many of your own sources will you deny ? )

    All the relevant sources (Bukhari, Ibn Hisham, Tabari, Ibn al-Athir, Ibn Sa’d, Ibn Hanbal, etc.) maintain that Aisha was bethroted to Mohammed when she was 6, and the marraige was consummated 3 years later.

    ‘Mahommad – The Word of Allah’ written by Anne-Marie Delcambre. (Anne-Marie Delcambre has a doctorate in ‘Islamology’, and taught Islamic Civilisation at the Saint Joseph University of Beyrouth in Lebanon). On page 69, it says that he was married to her when she was 9 years old.

    Dates commonly accepted by scholars: Birth Muhammad(570), birth Aisha(614 or 615). Bethrothal(620 or 621), Consummation of marriage(623 or 624). In particular the “consummation” of marriage is said to have taken place after the hidjra in Shawwal 1 or 2. Between 621 and 623 Asiha is said to have contracted a disease whereby she temporarily lost her hair. (Ref 1)

    She could not have been more than 10 years when she went to live in Muhammad’s house. The fact that she took her toys with her to her new home indicates that she was psychologically and socially still a child. And the fact that she was allowed to play with DOLLS indicates that she had NOT reached puberty by this time. (“The playing with the dolls and similar images was(is) forbidden, but it was allowed for Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.”Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13).

    Besides, there is also Aisha’s own statement which implies that she had NOT reached puberty when she moved into Muhammad’s house[Sahih Bukhari 7.163]. I am sure she would have been able to recount accurately as to when and where she got her first menses. Most girls do remember such events rather accurately. (Refs 2)

    What is “sick” is that Muhammad had started to dream of a union with Aisha already when she was 4-5 years old: “You were shown to me twice (in my dream) before I married you…(and) I said (to myself), ‘If this is from Allah, then it must happen.” He was to use a similar tactic when he wanted to marry his step son’s wife. A tactic which Aisha later came to understand as fraud, as in: “Aisha said: O Allah’s Apostle! I do not see, but, that your Lord hurries in pleasing you.” (Refs 2)

    Muhammad wasted no time in realizing what he had been dreaming. Already when Aisha was 6 “The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for ‘Aisha’s hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said “But I am your brother.” The Prophet said, “You are my brother in Allah’s religion and His Book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry.” Here it does not seem that Abu Bakr consented to the marriage wholeheartedly.

    Pedophile ?

    What are the essential features of pedophilia.?

    Professors of psychiatry, Harold I.Kaplan MD and Benjamin J.Sadock MD. of New York University Medical School states the essential features to diagnose pedophilia are:

    1.Identification with and narcissistic investment in immature sexual objects.

    Muhammad’s infatuation and relationship with Aisha fits this criterion. And Mohammad was vain too – he liked to use perfume and dye his hair (even as an old man).

    2. Control, domination and seduction of children.

    A slight recalcitrance on the part of his wives was met by intolerant threats like: “if he (Muhammad) divorce you, (Allah) will give him in your place wives better than you, submissive, faithful, obedient, penitent, adorers, fasters, widows and virgins.” [K 66.5]

    3. Sexual activity with children is preferential and occur repeatedly.

    Aisha was ever present, right up to his last fatal breath and he preferred spending his nights with her. Aisha became Muhammad’s favorites wife. And the sexuality in the relationship was predominant. [Sahih Bukhari 1.270,3:36,7:6,3:148,3:149,3:150,7:142,IbnSa’d 1pg165]

    Is menses necessary indicator of sexual maturity ?

    Sexual maturity is NOT PURELY RELATED TO MENSES as for some peculiar reasons many Muslims have tried to say.

    In the first place having or not having menses is not the criterion for sexual maturity, and thus of pedophilic behaviour. We have cases here, of abducted girls, 12, 13, 14, well past their mens, and yet preferred by pedophiles as sexual objects.

    Besides when Aisha was about 4-5 years old Muhammad started dreaming of a union with her [Sahih Bukhari 5:235]- I am sure Ayesha was not menstruating then . Or do Arab girls

    Proving one more time that when it comes to Muslim women, it’s about headscarves and hymens — in other words, what’s on our heads and what’s between our legs — Egypt is hot and bothered over a Chinese device that fakes female virginity.

    It’s reportedly available in Syria for $15 but nobody knows if the gizmo called Gigimo is on sale in Egypt yet. Just the mere thought of a device, which is said to release liquid imitating blood, allowing a woman to fake virginity on her wedding night, has driven some conservatives crazy.

    One Egyptian Muslim scholar even went so far as to say that people caught importing the virginity-faking device into the country should face the death penalty and the Muslim Brotherhood, the largest opposition bloc in parliament, want the kit banned on grounds it will encourage promiscuity.

    The conservatives are not content that their ideology has put headscarves on the heads of 80 per cent of Egyptian women. Now it’s the horror of uncertainty about that “good girl” they marry.

    With all the troubles Egypt faces these days — spiralling cost of living, a president in power for 28 years whose son looks likely to succeed him, etc. — why all the fuss over hymens, real or fake?

    Welcome to the hypocrisy and denial that together drum at the heart of conservative religious views on women and chastity. And in the case of Egypt, that conservatism applies equally to Muslims and Christians.

    As a Muslim, I know the Qur’an preaches chastity for men and women, but the conservative obsession with women means only females are expected to abide by the prohibition on extramarital sex. This obsession with virginity is shallow at best and deadly at worst.

    And it’s built on a lie — people in Egypt are having sex outside of marriage, as they do everywhere. Hymen reconstruction surgery was an option for sexually active women who could afford it.

    In less affluent and more rural areas, women have used body parts of animals for blood on the sheets. Now the Gigimo provides a cheaper, cleaner and non-surgical prop to maintain the lie that many men still want to believe.

    Truth be told, it’s unlikely Egyptian women will flock to the Gigimo. But it’s been worth it just to watch male hysteria as the made-in-China hymens threatened to smash their virginity god

  31. paki_girl says:

    Chastity can exact a painful price from young Muslim women, forced into lies or surgery to go to the marriage bed as virgins.

    Hymen repair, fake virginity certificates and other deceptions, said to be commonplace in some Muslim countries, are practiced in France and elsewhere in Europe, where Muslim girls are more emancipated but still live under rigid codes of family honor.

    Such ploys have saved many a young woman from scorn and worse. But they also clash with the more liberal social mores of France and Europe, where some decry it as an attack on human rights.

    The procedures are legal but shrouded in silence — “something that passes through nonofficial channels,” via friends or the Internet, said Dr. Nathan Wrobel. “There are circuits that lead women to me.”

    ‘It’s a secret we share’
    Wrobel is one of an unknown number of gynecologists in France who are willing to repair hymens, the membrane usually broken by the first act of sexual intercourse. He was one of the few doctors willing to talk about it.

    Wrobel says women come to him having convinced themselves that the procedure will somehow reverse the irreversible. “They tell me, ‘I’ll be a virgin again. You will make me a virgin,’ which in reality is totally false …. It’s a secret we share.”

    Other doctors issue false virginity certificates or offer such tricks as spilling a vial of blood on the sheets to fool families into believing the bride has passed their purity bar.

    Through the ages, virginity has been prized across religions and cultures, and doctors note that only a few generations back European brides also had to furnish documentary “proof” of chastity.

    Broader question
    In today’s France, with an estimated 5 million Muslims — the largest such population in western Europe — it’s part of the larger question of how to deal with cultural clashes ranging from head scarves in schools to sexual segregation in swimming pools.

    A 2005 government report addressing culture clashes in hospitals, and issued a year after Muslim head scarves were banned from classrooms, briefly mentions the virginity issue, asking doctors to refuse to issue false certificates.

    Isabelle Levy, author of “Religion in the Hospital,” decries both certificates and hymen repair, saying deception “increases the moral suffering.”

    In Islam, virginity is linked to bridal purity and family honor, said Dalil Boubakeur, head of the Paris Mosque.

    He notes that tradition holds that “adre,” virgins, are among the delights of paradise. However, Boubakeur, a doctor and a moderate Muslim, says the Quran does not address premarital virginity, and he is against the deception, counseling bride and bridegroom to confide in each other.

    It is not known how many doctors in France or elsewhere in Europe help Muslim women to fake virginity. But in Germany, Turkish Muslim immigrants are increasingly seeking virginity certificates, said Serap Cileli, who survived a forced marriage and now helps victims.

    German doctors who do hymen repair are easy to find, according to Sibylle Schreiber, who works with a women’s rights group in Tuebingen, but it’s “a taboo topic really only discussed best friend to best friend.”

    Not on the Internet, however, where the desperation in Web forums is palpable. “If you have contacts to help me, I’ll never be able to thank you enough,” writes a woman calling herself Lubna who wants help finding someone to restore her virginity.

    Wrobel, who teaches at the University of Paris, says he and another doctor at his clinic in a Paris suburb stitch up seven to eight hymens a month in a 20- to 30-minute operation under general anesthesia that he likens to plastic surgery. He asked that the clinic not be named.

    The price, $500, is steep for a young woman in a poor family and possibly unemployed. A German doctor advertising on the Internet charges $1,250.

    ‘It’s easy to be like a virgin’
    Dr. Emmanuelle Piet, who heads the family planning clinics in an area north of Paris where many Muslims live, says she has been issuing a half-dozen virginity certificates a year for three decades.

    But instead of hymen repair, she suggests less drastic measures, like spilling blood on the sheet on the wedding night.

    “It’s easy to be like a virgin,” she said.

    It’s deceptive but “it’s one way to help the girls,” said Piet, a veteran women’s rights advocate. “They are stuck in things so terrible.”

    In an interview, a French Muslim woman from the northern Paris suburb of Saint Denis, recounted how she was forced to procure a virginity certificate at age 12 “after my mother surprised me with a friend.” Although nothing had happened between her and the boy, her suspicious brothers beat her up, she said, requesting anonymity.

    By age 19 she had lost her virginity and underwent hymen repair before marrying a man who demanded a virgin.

    “I wanted to leave home. I took the first one who came along,” the woman said. The marriage ended after five years.

  32. Gulnar says:

    The decision of a French court in Lille to annul a Muslim marriage because the wife was not a virgin has sparked anger in France. It has ignited a reaction from secularists who view the ruling as a threat to “French values”. French Urban Affairs Minister, Fadela Amara, went so far as to say that the the ruling constitutes “a real fatwa against the emancipation and liberty of women.”

    The ruling also highlights the challenges faced by many Muslim women in France who have become sexually emancipated while still retaining close connections with the traditional Islamic values upheld by their families. The tension arising from this, is never so intense than when it comes to matters of family honor, particularly as it relates to the importance of a daughter’s virginity when entering into matrimony.

    It isn’t unusual for prospective brides to be required to provide evidence of virginity. In some cases women have been required to go for gynecological exams in order to determine virginity status.

    Some women are so concerned about the prospect of bringing dishonor to the family and becoming objects of scorn, that they undergo an operation called a “hymenoplasty.” This is a procedure that reconstructs the hymen, the thin membrane usually broken during intercourse. The cost of becoming a faux virgin varies, but in a private clinic in Paris it can cost around $3,000. It should be pointed out that the procedure in France is still relatively rare, as compared to the Middle East and Latin America for example.

    Jacques Lansac of the French College of Gynecologists and Obstetricians opposes hymen reconstruction surgery: “Attaching so much importance to the hymen is regression, submission to the intolerance of the past.”

    The surgery may create the illusion of virginity, but the marriage will still be based upon willful deception from day one. How does living-a-lie uphold family honor? And if family honor needs to be safeguarded by deception, what value does it have over and above the importance of saving face?

    While some Muslim women feel sufficiently pressured that they are willing to make a pretense of being virgins, husbands-to-be are not required to answer for their sexual history. It is a viewpoint that is sexist and out-of-touch with modern realities.

    Any mainstream religion, not only Islam, faces the challenge of striking a balance between the social mores of the society in which it operates and traditional religious values. There needs to be a measure of understanding and tolerance, of give and take, otherwise children of future generations are going to remain in a position of conflict – torn between traditional values and a contemporary lifestyle that is more about rights than religious obligations.

    The Lille annulment created an uproar because critics view it as a threat to the rights of women. They see it as equating marriage with a commercial transaction that makes the woman appear more like goods that come with a contract, rather than a human being with dignity and value that goes beyond the mere fact of her virgin status.

    Justice Minister, Racheda Dati, has announced that the government will be appealing the ruling.

    Some of the reaction to the Lille decision has been over-the-top. Some of it has also been fomented by those who seek any excuse to cast Islam in a negative light. To call it a move toward sharia law as some have done, is ridiculous. In fact seen from the woman’s perspective the court did her a favor by annulling her marriage to a much older man who lacked the class to keep matters of the marriage bed private.

    Article 180 of the French Civil Code allows for such annulments to take place if a partner fails to fulfill an “essential” part of the pre-marriage arrangement. In the Lille case it was the honesty of the bride that was in question. The ruling wasn’t addressing virginity as an “essential quality” of marriage. Couples of other religions have used Article 180 to obtain annulments in the past.

    A number of French Muslims have expressed sympathy for the woman in this case. Abdelkibir Errami, vice president of the Islamic Center of Roubaix, close to Lille where the marriage took place, had this to say:

    The man is the biggest of all the donkeys. Even if the woman was no longer a virgin, he had no right to expose her honor. This is not what Islam teaches. It teaches forgiveness.

    Some girls are sexually abused at a young age…

    A close friend of mine recently opened up and told me she was abused by her cousin at the age of SIX! and the bast*rd was 17. Im not going to go into detail about this but because she was 6 she cant remember how far he went with her.

    She never told anyone in her family and now she’s due to get married soon and is totally worried whether she is still a virgin or not. She hasn’t really considered getting any type of surgery done coz she isnt sure, but for girls who are sure, its not their fault. Some pakistani families are very narrow minded and rather then having the whole khandaan find out that the girl was sexually abused its easier for them to take actions such as hymen replacement surgery..

    And what about girls who are raped… Personally if i was in a similar situation (allah na kare) I would never ever EVER let my father or brother find out, Imagine the guilt that would over come them for life. Id confide in my mum and get alternative methods to sort me out.

    Teachings Concerning Women Sex And Paradise

    God being All Pure Peace and Love believes in the equality of all human beings – that women are the equal of men – therefore all the following teachings are not the teachings of God but the evil teachings of ALLAH (the ANTI GOD.)

    Likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills: “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” (2:223);

    Women have rights that are similar to men, but men are “a degree above them.” 2:228

    A woman is worth one-half a man. 2:282

    Marry of the women two, or three, or four. 4:3

    Males are to inherit twice that of females. 4:11

    All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. You can’t have sex with married women, unless they are slaves obtained in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like). 4:24

    And all married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess. It is a decree of Allah for you. Lawful unto you are all beyond those mentioned, so that ye seek them with your wealth in honest wedlock, not debauchery. And those of whom ye seek content (by marrying them), give unto them their portions as a duty. And there is no sin for you in what ye do by mutual agreement after the duty (hath been done). Lo! Allah is ever Knower, Wise. 4:24

    Tells husbands to beat their disobedient wives: 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 the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. 4:34

    Men are in charge of women, because Allah made men to be better than women. Refuse to have sex with women from whom you fear rebellion, and scourge them. 4:34

    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 the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great. 4:34

    When it’s time to pray and you have just used the toilet or touched a woman, be sure to wash up. If you can’t find any water, just rub some dirt on yourself. 5:6

    Allah says it is lawful for Muhammad to marry any women he wants. 33:50-51

    O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war, and the daughters of thine uncle on the father’s side and the daughters of thine aunts on the father’s side, and the daughters of thine uncle on the mother’s side and the daughters of thine aunts on the mother’s side who emigrated with thee, and a believing woman if she give herself unto the Prophet and the Prophet desire to ask her in marriage – a privilege for thee only, not for the (rest of) believers – We are Aware of that which We enjoined upon them concerning their wives and those whom their right hands possess – that thou mayst be free from blame, for

    Allah is ever Forgiving, Merciful. 33:50-51

    Thou canst defer whom thou wilt of them and receive unto thee whom thou wilt, and whomsoever thou desirest of those whom thou hast set aside (temporarily), it is no sin for thee (to receive her again); that is better; that they may be comforted and not grieve, and may all be pleased with what thou givest them. Allah knoweth what is in your hearts (O men), and Allah is ever Forgiving, Clement. 33:50-51

    Those who “did wrong” will go to hell, and their wives will go to hell with them (no matter how they behaved). 37:22-23

    (And it is said unto the angels): Assemble those who did wrong, together with their wives and what they used to worship. 37:22-23

    Instead of Allah, and lead them to the path to hell; 37:22-23

    But the single-minded slaves of Allah will enjoy a Garden filled with lovely-eyed virgins. 37:40-48

    Female companions await those who enter the Gardens of Eden on the Day of Reckoning. 38:52

    Allah will reward faithful Muslims after they die with “fair ones with wide, lovely eyes.44:54

    Allah will reward those in the Garden with beautiful wives with wide, lovely eyes. 52:20

    Muhammad’s wives need to be careful. If they criticize their husband, Allah will replace them with better ones. 66:5

    Among the inmates of Heaven women will be the minority” (Sahih Muslim 36: 6600);……..

    “I (Mohammed) have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-Fire were women…[because] they are ungrateful to their husbands and they are deficient in intelligence” (Sahih Bukhari: 2:18:161; 7:62:125, 1:6:301).

    Perhaps to make up for the anticipated shortage of women in heaven, the Quran promises Muslim men beautiful virgins (houris) for their sexual pleasure (Q 44:54, 78:33, 55:56, 56:36 etc)

    “The righteous (Muslims) they shall triumph…Theirs shall be voluptuous women” – Q 78:31-33.

    “As for the righteous (Muslims)…We (Allah) shall wed them to beautiful virgins with lustrous eyes” – Q 44:51-54

    Estimates vary as to the number of virgins (2 to 72) per male Muslim in heaven (Sahih Bukhari 4:54:476, Al-Tirmidhi 2562). Actually the Tirmidhi Hadith states that 72 wives is the minimum, perhaps for the not so devout Muslims in the 7th heaven.

    Mohammed said: “The least reward for the people of paradise is 80,000 servants and 72 wives” – Al-Tirmidhi 2562, 2687.

    Prophets, suicide bombers and other Islamic martyrs in Islam’s first heaven may get up to 1000 virgins each. For maximum enjoyment of these numerous wives, Muslim men are guaranteed superb erection in heaven:

    The Holy Prophet (Mohammed) said: “The believer will be given tremendous strength in Paradise for sexual intercourse”. It was questioned: “O prophet of Allah! can he do that?” He said: “He will be given the strength of one hundred persons.'” (Mishkat al-Masabih 4:42:24; Sunan al-Tirmidhi 2536).

    When asked, “Do we have sex in Paradise?” Ibn Kathir, the renowned Islamic scholar explained: ‘Yes, by him who holds my soul in his hand, and it will be done…and when the sex is finished she will return pure and virgin again’ – Tafsir Ibn Kathir.

    Al-Suyuti (15th century) another famous Islamic theologian and Quranic comentator adds:
    “Each time we sleep with a houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected (Muslims in heaven) never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world …Each chosen Muslim will marry seventy houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetising vaginas.”

    This pre-occupation with sex in heaven is consistent with the Islamic view of women as sex objects for gratifying Muslim men.

    “Women are your fields, go (men) into your fields as you please” – Quran 2:223

    With its offer of eternal erections and gratifying heavenly sex with virgins who “re-virginate” after sex, its little wonder Muslim terrorists, suicide bombers and other Islamic martyrs are in a hurry to enter Islam’s brothel paradise – Al-Jannah !!

    SEX IN ISLAM AND ISLAMIC PARADISE

    Virgins await those who enter paradise. 2:25

    It’s OK to have sex with your wives on the night of the fast. 2:187

    Have sex with your women whenever, however, and as often as you like. 2:223

    “Pure companions, and contentment from Allah”
    Virgins await those who enter paradise. 3:15

    “All married women (are forbidden unto you) save those (captives) whom your right hands possess.”
    You can’t have sex with married women, unless they are slaves obtained in war (with whom you may rape or do whatever you like). 4:24

    Virgins await those who enter paradise. 4:57

    Lot offers his daughters to a mob of angel rapers. 11:78

    Lot offers his daughters to a mob of angel rapers. 15:71

    You don’t have to be modest around your wives or your slave girls “that your right hand possess.” 23:6

    But the single-minded slaves of Allah will enjoy a Garden filled with lovely-eyed virgins. 37:40-48

    Female companions await those who enter the Gardens of Eden on the Day of Reckoning. 38:52

    Allah will reward faithful Muslims after they die with “fair ones with wide, lovely eyes.” 44:54

    Allah will reward those in the Garden with beautiful wives with wide, lovely eyes. 52:20

    Allah will give those in the Garden women of modest gaze whom neither man nor jinn have touched before them. 55:56

    Allah will reward believing men with “fair ones” (beautiful women) in heaven. 55:71-72

    Those in the Garden will be attended by immortal youths with wide, lovely eyes. 56:17-23

    Allah made virgins to be lovers and friends to those on his right hand. 56:36-37

    Those in the Garden will be waited on by immortal youths, as beautiful as scattered pearls. 76:19

    Those in the Gardens will have maidens for companions. 78:33

    Even Heaven is a bleak prospect for women, for, according to Muhammad, women will spend eternity standing in the corners of Paradise, waiting for the men to come and have sex with them.

    MUHAMMAD’S SADISM TOWARD HIS WIVES

    Muhammad suffered a real midlife crisis – as a sexual pervert he could no longer get an erection. His failure to perform penile sex with his women due to his impotency was solved by performing sex with them with his hand, as he could not live without being able to play with female bodies and their sexual organs. His obsession with, and addiction to, sex was so strong as to make him oblivious of his women’s conditions, and their surroundings. He fondled them when they were menstruating; he inserted his hand into their vaginas, when they were in others’ company.

    Hadiths that says that Muhammad used to fondle his wives during their menses:

    Narrated ‘Abdur-Rahman bin Al-Aswad: (on the authority of his father) ‘Aisha said: “Whenever Allah’s Apostle wanted to fondle anyone of us during her periods (menses), he used to order her to put on an Izar and start fondling her.”

    ‘Aisha added, “None of you could control his sexual desires as the Prophet could.”

    Another hadith that says that Muhammad came upon Aisha and began doing “something {to her} with his hand,” in the presence of his another wife:

    “Zainab [verbally] abused Aishah, so Mohammed told A’ishah to abuse her.”…The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) came upon me [Aisha] while Zainab daughter of Jahsh was with us. He began to do something with his hand. I signaled to him until I made him understand about her. So he stopped. Zainab came on and began to abuse Aishah. She prevented her, but she did not stop. So he (the Prophet) said to Aishah: Abuse her. Then she abused her and dominated her. Zainab then went to Ali and said: Aishah abused you and did (such and such). Then Fatimah came (to the Prophet) and he said to her: She is favourite of your father, by the Lord of the Ka’bah! She then returned and said to them: I said to him such and such, and he said to me such and such. Then “Ali came to the Prophet (may peace be upon him) and spoke to him about that.””

    Muhammad’s wives’ acquiescence to his dictates to live with his impotency became a double jeopardy for them: he would come, fondle them and do “something with his hand” and when they became fully stimulated, he would leave them to themselves to mend their maddening passion. Unable to bear his torture any longer, they found themselves forced to look out for men from outside to quench their sexual thirst.”

    Always maintaining a close watch over his wives, Muhammad would not let them do that either. To nip their efforts at securing sexual comforts from other men in the bud, he launched a serious attack on their character, saying:

    “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.” Surah 33:30

    To make clear what Muhammad had meant by the words “if any of you were guilty of evident unseemly conduct,” Abdullah Yusuf Ali wrote:

    “… The punishment in this life for a married woman’s unchastity is very severe: for adultery, public flogging with a hundred stripes, under xxiv, 2; or for lewdness (see iv.15) imprisonment; or stoning to death for adultery, according to certain precedents established in Canon Law. …”

    In order to further keep his wives in line Muhammad created the following teaching from ALLAH(the ANTI GOD):

    “But any of you that is devout in the service of Allah and His Apostle, and works righteousness, – to her shall We grant her reward twice: and We have prepared for her a generous Sustenance.” 33:31

    FAMILY VALUES

    Don’t make be friends with your disbelieving family members. Those who do so are wrong-doers. 9:23

    Those who refuse to fight for Allah will be treated (along with their children) as unbelievers. 9:85

    Don’t pray for idolaters (not even for your family) after it is clear they are people of hell-fire. 9:113

    Abraham disowned his father for being an enemy of Allah. 9:114

    Lot offers his daughters to a mob of angel rapers. 11:78

    Lot offers his daughters to a mob of angel rapers. 15:71

    Allah tells Abraham in a dream to sacrifice his son. (But is the son Ishmael or Isaac?) 37:102

    On the Last Day good Muslims will not love their non-Muslim friends and family members, not even their fathers, sons, or brothers (or their mothers, daughters, or sisters). 58:22

    Don’t let your children distract you from your duty to Allah. 63:9

    Your wives and children are your enemies. They are to you only a temptation. 64:14-15

    Instructions for divorcing your wives. 65:1-6

    Allah’s rules for divorcing wives that have not yet reached puberty. 65:4

    The conception of Paradise described above would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic. Ten’s of thousands of innocents have been murdered by suicide bombers who believe they are going to a Paradise full of sexual delights. This is an evil paradise only a demented, deranged, evil man would have dreamed up- Muhammad

    Muslim countries in the Middle East and north-central Africa lead the world in human trafficking, according to a new U.S. State Department report. Of the 17 countries that were given the “Tier 3″ listing reserved for the worst offenders, nine were Muslim countries or countries with a large Muslim population from these two regions. Tier 3 countries are defined as those “whose governments do not fully comply with the minimum standards” of the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 and “are not making significant efforts to do so.”

    The Middle Eastern countries with Tier 3 status are Iran, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Syria. The north-central African countries are Mauritania, Chad, Sudan, Niger and Eritrea, all of which have very large Muslim populations.

    Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Iraq, Yemen, Bahrain, Qatar, the UAE and Lebanon are on the Tier 2 Watchlist – one step above Tier 3.

    Shyima Hall, 19, was photographed for the State Department report in the windowless garage where she was kept for two years. Shyima was 10 when a wealthy Egyptian couple brought her from a poor village in northern Egypt to work in their home in California. She used to wake before dawn and often worked past midnight ironing clothes, mopping the marble floors and dusting the family’s crystal. She sometimes worked up to 20 hours a day and earned $45 a month. (Photo: Traffic in Persons Report 2009).

    The data in the report indicates that Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa are continuing their centuries-old practice of human trafficking. Historians estimate that between 9 and 14 million black Africans were brought to the Americas in the Atlantic slave trade and between 11 and 18 million black African slaves crossed the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, and Sahara Desert between the Muslim conquests in the 7th century and 1900.

    Iran: The report says that “Iran is a source, transit, and destination for men, women, and children trafficked for the purposes of sexual exploitation and involuntary servitude. Iranian women are trafficked internally for the purpose of forced prostitution and forced marriage. Iranian and Afghan children living in Iran are trafficked internally for the purpose of forced marriage, commercial sexual exploitation, and involuntary servitude as beggars or laborers to pay debts, provide income, or support drug addiction of their families. Iranian women and girls are also trafficked to Pakistan, Turkey, Qatar, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Iraq, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom for commercial sexual exploitation.”

    The State Department report noted that “the Government of Iran does not fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking, and is not making significant efforts to do so. Lack of access to Iran by U.S. Government officials impedes the collection of information on the country’s human trafficking problem and the government’s efforts to curb it.”

    North Africa and Middle East: Tier 3 countries are shaded maroon. (Traffic in Persons Report 2009).

    Saudi Arabia, the report says, “is a destination country for men and women trafficked for the purposes of involuntary servitude and, to a lesser extent, commercial sexual exploitation. Men and women from Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Sudan, Ethiopia, and many other countries voluntarily travel to Saudi Arabia as domestic servants or other low-skilled laborers, but some subsequently face conditions indicative of involuntary servitude, including restrictions on movement, withholding of passports, threats, physical or sexual abuse, and non-payment of wages.

    “Some Saudi men have also used legally contracted ‘temporary marriages’ in countries such as Mauritania, Yemen, and Indonesia as a means by which to sexually exploit migrant workers. Females as young as seven years old are led to believe they are being wed in earnest, but upon arrival in Saudi Arabia subsequently become their husbands’ sexual slaves, are forced into domestic labor and, in some cases, prostitution. The Government of Saudi Arabia does not fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking and is not making discernible efforts to do so.”

    Syria is “principally a destination country for women and children trafficked for the purposes of domestic servitude and commercial sexual exploitation. Women from Iraq, Eastern Europe, former Soviet states, Somalia, and Morocco are recruited as cabaret dancers and subsequently forced into prostitution after their employers confiscate their passports and confine them to their work premises. A significant number of women and children in the large Iraqi refugee community in Syria are forced into sexual exploitation by criminal gangs or, in some cases, their families. Some desperate Iraqi families reportedly abandon their girls at the border with the expectation that traffickers on the Syrian side would arrange forged documents for the children and ‘work’ in a nightclub or brothel. Iraqi families arrange for young girls to work in clubs and to be “married,” often multiple times, to men for the sole purpose of prostitution.”

    Africa: Tier 3 countries are shaded maroon. (Traffic in Persons Report 2009).

    In Kuwait, the majority of trafficking victims are from among the over 500,000 foreign women recruited for domestic service work. “Men and women migrate from Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh in search of work in the domestic and sanitation industries. Although they migrate willingly to Kuwait, upon arrival some are subjected to conditions of forced labor from their ‘sponsors’ and labor agents, such as withholding of passports, confinement, physical sexual abuse and threats of such abuse or other serious harm, and non-payment of wages with the intent of compelling their continued service.”

    “Adult female migrant workers are particularly vulnerable, and consequently are often victims of sexual exploitation and forced prostitution. There have been instances of domestic workers who have fled from their employers, lured by the promise of well-paying service industry jobs, and being coerced into prostitution. In other cases, the terms of employment in Kuwait are wholly different from those agreed to in their home countries. The Government of Kuwait does not fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking and is not making sufficient efforts to do so

  37. Huma says:

    Hi I am from Rawalpindi Pakistan and broke my hymn with sexual relations with my boy friend about 3 years and had been regular sex contacts with him. I am now scheduled to marry a guy and my parents have promised them that I am virgin and pure. I am in a little dilema whether I should use artificial hymen kit or get hymen repair surgery, to show blod stains on the wedding night on the bed sheet.

    May please advise me.

  38. Hello ladies.

    So this is fun. If you’ve recently (or not so recently) misplaced your hymen, accidentally damaged it, given it a bit of a tear – then boy, oh, boy, have we got the product for you.

    This fabulous Artificial Hymen Repair Kit can give you back that little scrap of membrane that you miss so dearly. And no, we’re not joking because you can’t make up stuff this perverse.

    In short, this is a delicate sachet of fake blood that you insert into your vagina like a diaphragm and then it ah, dissolves or ‘tears’ during intercourse. Fun!

    The Hong Kong producers of this little gem of a product, promise on their website (HymenShop.com – yes, really!) to “restore your virginity in five minutes with this new technologically advanced product. Kiss your deep dark secret goodbye and marry in confidence.”

    The Hymen Repair Kit, which you can pick up for a STEAL at just $3.70 Australian, comes in a range of colours including the feisty ‘Joan of Arc Red’ (pictured) and other options such as ‘Dusty Outback Ochre’, ‘Aeroplane Jelly Raspberry’ and ‘Lady Macbeth Crimson.’ (Ok, we made those colours up but you get the gist).

    Journalist, Leah Beckman thought she had better try the kit out and see for herself just how it worked. She wrote about the (hilarious) experience for for NY Magazine:

    After a brief bedroom warm-up session with my boyfriend, I excuse myself to the bathroom, kit and instructions in hand. I open the first packet and take out what looks like a clear plastic Listerine strip folded into eighths. There is a gruesome amount of bright red liquid inside the folds. I “completely unfold the hymen,” as step No. 4 in the instructions indicates.

    Some dried-up flakes of red fall from the plastic. I don’t remember red dust at my original hymen-loss, but maybe every hymen-loss is a snowflake unto itself: a tiny and unique horror story floating in the wintertime of our innocence.

    Missionary is the only option here. During the delicate deflowering process there is no need for the Funny Business. As soon as he’s in, I shriek-yodel question after question: Can you feel it? Is it gross? Does it hurt? Should we stop? Are we breaking up? Are you mad at me? What are you thinking about? What about now? Can you feel it? What about now? I sound like a squawking turkey.

    My boyfriend answers all of the questions in the order they are received: He can’t feel it. Everything feels normal. He’s not mad. We’re not breaking up. Mostly he’s just thinking about sex. Still can’t feel it. No, not even now.

    Soon our banter has dissolved like the fake hymen in my vagina, and we are quiet. Me because I am imagining the Magic School Bus journey my liquefied hymen is making through my body, and him because he is just having regular sex with me, and we generally don’t “riff” when we’re doing that. Then we are done. Our crotches look like the inside of a lava lamp.

    Hymen Repair Kit. The contents…

    Now of course there is the bigger issue – in some countries around the world, virginity is actually a matter of great import. Women have been killed over less. In fact some Muslim countries have even sought to restrict the importation of the Artificial Hymen Kit but that’s a whole other post…

    But for the Australian market? We don’t see a stampede to buy fake hymens. Would you seriously want to stick a piece of red cellophane up your cervix just so you could make a pitch for the ‘thrill’ of first time sex again? We polled the office and there were very few women who put their hands up to re-live the virginity-losing experience.

    So if it’s a little dull in the bedroom we suggest that you avoid the whole re-enact-your-virginity thing (regardless of the bargain basement price) and go with something like this or this.

    YOU WILL BE SURPRIZED TO KNOW THAT OUR SALE OF THIS PRODUCT HAS INCREASED MORE THAN 30 TIMES DURING THE LAST ONE YEAR. CALL GIRLS, PROSTITUTES AND HOSTEL GIRLS ARE USING THIS PRODUCT ON A VERY LARGE SCALE. DURING MARRIAGE SEASON IN PAKISTAN, THE DEMAND OF THIS PRODUCT INCREASES.

    RIYADH: Khaled never thought a form of temporary marriage would open the door to his happily-ever-after. The 25-year-old Saudi security guard opted to marry Zeinab, also a Saudi, through a Misyar contract ? a kind of marriage under which couples often live separately but get together regularly.

    Khaled and Zeinab are among thousands of people who choose Misyar in this ultraconservative kingdom where contact between unrelated men and women is forbidden and extramarital affair regarded as a grave sin.

    Misyar is allowed in Sunni Islam and it is legal in Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam and other Middle East countries. But it is traditionally frowned upon and the fact that it leaves the wife financially vulnerable has angered many women?s activists and intellectuals.

    After years of study, the influential Makkah-based Islamic Jurisprudence Assembly in April this year declared that Misyar marriage was legal, angering many women?s rights? activists in the Gulf.

    Influential Muslim cleric Youssef al-Qaradawi has given his blessing to Misyar, but said there should be at least some form of dowry to provide a guarantee for the wife.

    ?No doubt it is somehow socially unacceptable, but there is a big difference between what is Islamically valid and what is socially acceptable,? he recently told Al Jazeera television.

    Misyar offers an alternative to cash-strapped men who want to avoid lavish weddings but would like a relationship, without incurring the wrath of the morality police.

    Under Misyar, the husband is not financially responsible for his wife.

    Khaled, who declined to give his full name, admitted he wasn?t serious about commitment when he decided on Misyar.

    But now, he and Zeinab are expecting a baby together.

    ?I thought let?s give it a try … and now I feel like a hero in a romantic film,? he said.

    ?Misyar reduces marriage to sexual intercourse,? said Hatoun al-Fassi, a female Saudi historian. ?For clerics to allow it is shameful for our religion.?

    In regular marriages in Saudi Arabia, men must pay for expensive ceremonies, huge dowries and a home. If the couple divorce, he must pay alimony and child support.

    So Misyar appeals to men of reduced means, as well as men looking for a flexible arrangement ? the husband can walk away from a Misyar and can marry other women without informing his first wife.

    Wealthy Muslims sometimes contract Misyar when on holiday to allow them to have company of a woman without breaching the tenets of their faith.

    This vulnerability has sometimes encouraged abuses: women sometimes act as matchmakers for less than scrupulous men on the prowl for lonely and wealthy spinsters.

    Saudi television presenter Rima al-Shamikh said Misyar is the result of frustration among Saudi Arabia?s largely youthful population, bound by a strict religious code but exposed to western lifestyles through the media and Internet.

    ?Our young people watch the satellite television channels. There is dissatisfaction,? she explained.

    ?Misyar is a way of getting around the obstacles of marriage in Gulf societies.?

    Some scholars say Misyar was practised in the Arabian peninsula during the early days of Islam, when men were often away for months during battles or for trading.

    The practice reappeared in the early 19th century in Egypt, where it is known as Urfi marriage and is now very common.

    Saudi clerics say Misyar is authorised as long as it meets the basic requirements of sharia, ? consent of both parties, the blessing of the woman?s guardian, the presence of witnesses and a state marriage official.

    Advertisements for Saudi men and women seeking Misyar marriage abound on the Internet, recalling the ?lonely hearts? columns popular in Western newspapers.

    ?I am a 33-year-old Saudi man with acceptable looks seeking to marry a Saudi virgin or a divorcee,? read one posting on a special Misyar website. ?Saudi man seeking divorcee living in Jeddah, no objection to children,? read another.

    But not all Misyar couples are in it for the short-term. A few, like Khaled and Zeinab, find Misyar can be a first step to something more durable.

    ?We got used to each other very quickly,? said Khaled, who has been married for 18 months. ?Then she got pregnant. We couldn?t bear our situation, so we decided to live together for real, not just with Misyar.

    Mutah exposed, Iran opens brothels, Shia are allowed to do mutah with sunni girls without their permission?

    The Iranian government recently passed legislation which created legal whore-houses, brothels which would be officially liscensed under law as “Chastity Houses.” Such a name is of course the epitome of Orwellian terminology, and the irony of the name should not be lost to anyone.

    The Iranian clerics argued that the only way to solve the problem of prostitution is to bring it under state control. In recent weeks, several prominent conservative clerics have proposed that prostitutes be placed in government-run shelters for destitute women to be called “Chastity Houses,” where male customers could briefly “marry” them under the Shia belief of Mutah. These brothels would then be run by the Iranian religious clerics, who would ensure that the couples use contraceptives and protective measures. Proponents of the idea argue that it would “eradicate social corruption” by legitimizing sexual relations between the men and women. Under the plan, the couples would register for a temporary marriage under Iran’s Shia law.

    One cleric backing the plan, Ayatollah Mohammed Mousavi Bojnurdi, recently told a newspaper: “We face a real challenge with all these women on the street. Our society is in an emergency situation, so the formation of the Chastity Houses can be an immediate solution to the problem.” He added that the plan “is both realistic and conforms to Sharia [Islamic] law.”

    The Cultural Council for Women, a women’s rights group, argue back that such houses would be a “deceitful and thinly disguised” form of prostitution. Reuters recently quoted Shahrbanou Amani, a female parliamentarian, as calling the Chastity Houses “an insult and disrespectful to women.” Particularly discomforting is that there are hundreds of thousands of prostitutes in Tehran alone, and many of them are girls who are poverty-striken and forced into the now legalized prostitution that is so rampant in Iran.

    Hi Admn.

    I have ready this blog very carefully. Grateful to our sisters writing and pointing out innumerable hardships to them on account of such islamic religion at the cost of females lives.

    It is really a horror ful life that muslim girls has to face. I have separately described my life story and sought your advise please about marrying a non muslim guy of my choice.

  45. Farhana says:

    I am a single Pakistani-American Muslim girl, born and raised in the U.S., and I just turned twenty. I’m very secular, but I believe in God. My immediate family is very much like me, but the rest of our family, who we are very close with, take religion quite seriously. I’m expected to marry a Muslim man someday, which I have absolutely a bigproblem with; I dont want my eventual children raised under this faith.

    Here’s my problem: I really, really want to have sex now. I’m twenty, and I’m not a virgin because of sexual reasons with my BF, and that I’m ashamed of my body; it’s simply because I’m afraid I’ll end up marrying an old-fashioned guy who, upon discovering I am not a virgin, will not be interested in me anymore. My fears stem from what I was told about an aunt who was not a virgin when she got married; when her husband discovered that she did not bleed, he kicked her out onto the street, on their wedding night!

    I am under great dilema whether I should go for hymen repair surgery or use artificial hymen kid, if married to a muslim guy?

    Some times I feel that I could have all the sex I want without any social repercussions, but life just doesn’t work that way; I don’t know any single Muslim men who could accept me with broken hymen.

    Please advise.

    Sex With a Fake Hymen
    By Leah Beckmann
    .

    HI

    The Artificial Hymen Kit is exactly what it sounds like: Sealed in silver packages and nestled in a bed of pink satin in a small wooden box, the kit contains two “prosthetic membranes.” They will “restore your virginity in five minutes with this new technologically advanced product. Kiss your deep dark secret goodbye and marry in confidence,” says the advertisement at HymenShop.com. For 30 dollars, Hymen Shop ships from Hong Kong to just about anywhere in the world. Simply click, buy, insert, and voilà: virginity restored.

    In nations where virginity can be a literal issue of life and death, the Artificial Hymen Kit is controversial: Egyptian lawmakers attempted to restrict access after a blogger imported a kit from China. But its origin is less dire. Invented in the early nineties by a Japanese kinesiologist, distributors say the kits are popular in the fetish, porn, and sex industries. (The manufacturer credits “prostitutes in nightclubs on the gulf of Thailand” for popularizing it.) Among the first to market the product internationally, Hymen Shop now sells thousands of units each year, primarily to the United States.

    When I broke my first, real hymen in my teens — during an over-the-jeans dry-humping session with Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King playing in the background — I wasn’t even aware it was happening. So test-driving the Artificial Hymen Kit was an opportunity to lose my virginity all over again.

    After sacrificing one hymen to The Cut’s photo lab, I arrive at my boyfriend’s house with three “prosthetic membranes” in my purse. Despite a request that I wine and dine him in exchange for participation, I find he has cooked dinner and is drinking wine while playing video games with intense focus. He can do whatever he wants tonight because he’s lending his penis to science, journalism, and, worst of all, to the Internet, where his mother and seventh grade math teacher will have access to it.

    The directions on my Artificial Hymen Kit (color: “Joan of Arc Red”) are printed in Chinese on the inside lid of the box. Translated into English for my benefit, they explain there is a fifteen-minute window after the fake hymen has been inserted to have sex. This vagina will self-destruct in fifteen minutes. After a brief bedroom warm-up session with my boyfriend, I excuse myself to the bathroom, kit and instructions in hand.

    I open the first packet and take out what looks like a clear plastic Listerine strip folded into eighths. There is a gruesome amount of bright red liquid inside the folds. I “completely unfold the hymen,” as step No. 4 in the instructions indicates. Some dried-up flakes of red fall from the plastic. I don’t remember red dust at my original hymen-loss, but maybe every hymen-loss is a snowflake unto itself: a tiny and unique horror story floating in the wintertime of our innocence.

    “Using an index finger, insert the artificial hymen into the vagina.” Before I can decipher whether the hymen should go in blood-side up or blood-side down— rolled up like a joint? crumpled into a ball?— the film dissolves in my hands. I am covered in bright red dye. I am down one hymen. There is red on every surface of the sink. CSI: New York will need the whole hour to solve this one.

    I tear open the next packet, panicked that the clamminess of my hands will ruin my second fake hymen. Dissolve once, shame on me. Dissolve twice, and — oh God, what am I doing with my life?

    With some prodding, I stuff it in my vagina like decorative tissue paper in a fancy gift bag, blood-side down. The film clings to my finger, now the color of a red-velvet cupcake. As I Lady Macbeth my hands in the sink, I start to laugh maniacally. Nothing is funny. Fearing laughter will shake my hymen loose, I sprint back to the bedroom in search of a horizontal position.

    I discover my boyfriend has spread a red and white beach towel beside him on the bed. It says PUERTO RICO. He got it on vacation with his family, he tells me.

    Missionary is the only option here. During the delicate deflowering process there is no need for the Funny Business. As soon as he’s in, I shriek-yodel question after question: Can you feel it? Is it gross? Does it hurt? Should we stop? Are we breaking up? Are you mad at me? What are you thinking about? What about now? Can you feel it? What about now? I sound like a squawking turkey.

    My boyfriend answers all of the questions in the order they are received: He can’t feel it. Everything feels normal. He’s not mad. We’re not breaking up. Mostly he’s just thinking about sex. Still can’t feel it. No, not even now.

    I can’t feel that slimy piece of plastic, either. I worry it has been pushed further inside me, but after seeing how quickly the first one melted, I know it must be gone.

    Soon our banter has dissolved like the fake hymen in my vagina, and we are quiet. Me because I am imagining the Magic School Bus journey my liquefied hymen is making through my body, and him because he is just having regular sex with me, and we generally don’t “riff” when we’re doing that.

    Then we are done. Our crotches look like the inside of a lava lamp.

    Red Medical Food Dye (the official term, according to Hymen Shop Support staff) is smeared everywhere: his genitals, my genitals, the towel, our hands, and somehow on a T-shirt on the floor. He tells me there is a red thumbprint on my butt. We go to the bathroom to clean ourselves. While scrubbing, we discuss and process what just happened.

    First, we conclude, the “hymen” part of this device is besides the point. What’s to break? It dissolved instantly. But does that matter? I don’t know anyone who’s actually felt a hymen break mid-intercourse, and suspect that those utilizing the artificial hymen in earnest don’t, either. (Except for the fetish stars, maybe. But I doubt they mind illusion.) My e-mail buddy at Hymen Shop explains, “The first and foremost purpose of the artificial hymen kit is to provide the visual effect human being blood coming out of the vagina as a proof of virginity. The ‘breaking’ sensation in the intercourse is a second priority, and it’s an elusive one since it is very subjective with the individual man and the construct of the female hymen.”

    My boyfriend and I agree, however, that enjoyable sex is still possible, even when both parties are covered in fake blood the color of cherry Kool-Aid.

    The next morning, other than the fact that I am still peeing bioluminescent cake dye, nothing unusual is going on. (Except, yikes, that is extremely unusual. I vow to drink a lot of water.) In a fit of curiosity, I load myself with the final remaining hymen and ride a bike. Kool-Aid for everywhere. I can only assume the same is true for horseback riding, pogo sticks, and every other hymen-breaking activity from the Judy Blume canon.

    Later that afternoon, I get a text with the following: “My bathroom is covered in red dye. It’s all over the floor and the rug and shower. There must have been a huge blob of it somewhere that we smeared everywhere.”

    I respond, “New phone, who is this?”

    Women arrested by the Egyptian police during protests in Cairo’s Tahrir Square were subjected to forced ‘virginity tests’, according to Amnesty International. Eighteen demonstrators were detained after army officers cleared the square on March 9 at the end of weeks of protest. Amnesty today said thatthe women had been beaten, given electric shocks and then subjected to strip searches while being photographed by male soldiers. They were then given ‘virginity checks’ and threatened with prostitution charges if medics ruled they had had sex, according to the charity.

    Salwa Hosseini, 20, said she had been arrested and taken to a military prison in Heikstep where she was forced to strip and then searched by a female guard. She told the charity a number of male soldiers were watching through two open doors and a window and it was at that point they took photographs. Miss Hosseini then went on to describe ‘virginity tests‘ being carried out by a man in a white coat. She claims the women were threatened with charges if they were found not to be virgins. Meanwhile Rasha Azeb, a female journalist who arrested in Tahrir Square at the same time, claims that she was handcuffed and beaten by security forces.” source – Daily Mail UK

    Hi readers and sisters,

    While appreciating the use of artificial hymen kit by the muslim girls who are going to marry and who are to prove their virginity, irrespective of husband not virgin himself, but I have heard that in prostitutions, the girls are using the same to fetch more money on the pretext of virginity. In Pakistan and Arab countries, high prices are paid for virgin girls.

    Any way it is a good product for the saving the girls who lost their viriginity due to accidently or raped by even their own cousins and close relatives.

      It is our pleasure and honor that all these intellectuals are talking about religion-related issues. The objective of starting this web site is to stimulate discussion on some religion practices, especially relating to interfaith marriages.

      Is that the God who provided certain guidance in “the book” and we are suppose to literally follow it, or that God wants us to do good karma based on our moral and self conscience? If God wanted us to strictly follow certain commandments literally and without interpreting it in today’s context, why HE made some of us critical thinkers to question the book?

      On your point, “(we are) not in good number”, actually there are lots more readers come to this site (current rate of 6 million hits/year) for guidance, but do not write. Thus what ever you are writing has already made some impact. Invite your other friends to this site. Keep up the good work!
