Z. takes on dubious hadiths...

Z. has an excellent post on dubious islamic hadiths that really piss her feminist muslim-self off. The post covers the 7 levels of Islamic hell, what is it that exactly awaits muslim women when they get to Heaven, why most women won't even go to heaven anyway and the 99 dragons that will be chilling with you in your grave. Yes, Dragons. The whole post is filled with fun informative stuff of the nature. Please go read it and laugh, or cry, or something!

I wont bother, such falacities arent good for my blood pressure im afraid, but all i can say is, there are other sayings that conflict with some sayings that render them contradicting in the end.
Why dont silly people read more to find out for themselves & not let others dictate to them?

SM I left the same comment at Z's blog :

Z I see you know your Fatima Mernissi 101 :) good for you. Have you noticed how the most fantastical stories about Islam have come from our Indian subcontinent Muslim brothers ? Then also ONE of the fathers of 'fundamentalism' was Mawlana Mawdudi ... scary stuff !

SM this is old news .. don't tell me you just found about it now ??

Ohh and my favorite friday sermon ever was one where the Imam said that if you comit fornication, you will be eaten by the "BaLd snake". I actually couldn;t handle hearing something this stupid and not say something, so i actually interrupted him and was like "WTF are you talking about? Did you ever hear of a snake with hair? All fuckin snakes are bald."

May be in the afterlife snakes grow hair... can you imagine that? DAMN! I kept laughing about this all day.

Ohh topic, SM... but how can you stand to use AOL Instant Messenger? I installed that some time ago and it tried to take over my computer... very intrusive, and when I had the audacity to click "no" on whether I wanted it to be my default messenger service, it locked up my PV and I had to close it down with task manager :p

It may be better now, but I don't give software second chances, myself. In my experience, a POS program never gets rehabbed! Eh... nm that, I was just curious... it's probably better than that MSN thing that comes with windows. Microsoft is the devil. AOL is just a wannabe.
