Is God Just or not?

As I said before...mention hijab to muslims and you've got them foaming at the mouth more often than not...it certainly gets the religious fanatics out in force with the least provocation. Just see France not too long ago....it would seem that a govt of a country could pretty much pass what laws it seems are necessary to keep the peace or whatnot...right...except when it comes to hijab...tell the muslim masses that women can no longer wear hijab in school and suddenly you've got riots and protesters coming out in force....crying about our rights in Islam...our rights as Muslims....our rights our rights our rights!!! What they really mean is "our rights as Muslim men to control what our Muslim women wear...at home(in our Islamic countries) and abroad(in nonIslamice countries) because isnt it funny that these Holier than Thou Muslim men that were protesting and claiming that wearing the hijab is a right for Muslim women and no one can tell them otherwise...are the same Muslim men(ok not the same but having the same fanatical thought process) that forced young girls back into a burning building cause they were not wearing hijab...some of these girls burned to death because of the backward thinking notion that God wants a womans body(and girls for that matter) to be completely hidden from men at all costs...her very life means little if proper hijab is not worn.

The Quran is a beautiful piece of work...its poetic style and rich vibrant text comes alive with meaning and images when read....just listening to it can bring one to tears...even non muslims or muslims who dont know arabic have felt the spell of its recitation.....and yet we are often brought to tears over hadith that are harsh and condescending of women...that limit what God explands...that force down what God picked up....what oppresses what God enlightens....God sees women as an equal half of humanity...equal creations with rights, obligations, and rewarded or punished in the same manner as men.....God is Most Just in all matters without a doubt. Yet muslims will come along and say that ...while yes we are all created equal...we differ in that women are just sooooo damn sexy and tempting that men are by nature toooo damn weak to resist them...hence women should cover up against the weak nature of men....hows that for unfair unjust religious thinking? God says we are all accountable for our own actions...God says that both genders are required to "lower our gazes"...that both genders are required to observe modest behavoir and thought....that both genders will judged according to what they themselves did or didnt do...not on what they did cause someone looked hot in a pair of short shorts or cause her hair was just awesome with the sun shining on it...picking out highlights and twinkling at me just daring me to reach out and touch it....sounds like men have a built in "get out of jail free card" when it comes to sin against women....if the woman is showing her hair(or if she isnt) if she's near me(as in within a few hundred meters) if she's looking at me(as in glanced my way at some point) if she's talking to me(as in asked me directions) if she more or less intruded on my male space with her physical body...her voice....her smell....her whatever....then she is obviously not a good muslim girl and subject to my advances....she cannot cry later and say "I was minding my own business" as a muslim girls business is never her own...its the entire ummahs and they shall determine what her business is and where she can take care of it.

Hijab is just a whitewash of religious responsibility for muslim men....its the excuse given or blame placed for every single act committed against muslim women....if she was raped...its not the fault of the rapist who obviously wasnt thinking about God or Heaven or Hell while raping her....its her fault for not wearing proper hijab(if she wore hijab then for not wearing niqab....if she wore niqab then its for being out of her home...the excuses are endless)...but basically its her fault.....she will be punished either by her family or community....or both more than likely....the man hardly ever gets blamed or even punished for sex crimes...how can he when its clearly understood that men are the weaker sex....they have no control over the little head that rules their lives...they eat, sleep, and dream of sex...its programmed into them to start wanting sex from an early age and to want it, seek it, and obtain it at whatever costs until they die...no way around it girls...we are sex machines waiting to be acted upon by helpless male robots. No blame for them for being what God created them to be...right? What about women? Dont we want sex, dont we think about it...dont we seek it, dream about it? Why arent women viewed as being driven by the desire for sex the same way men are...? We are seen as the sluts while men are studs...we are promiscuous while men are....well studs...we are loose while men are...once again...studs. Any hint that we had sex, talked about sex, thought about sex, looked at pics of sex or even hinted that we know men have penises and also know how they are used....means we are immoral sex depraved nymphos that deserve whatever men see fit to give them...how very sad. Where is Gods Mercy on half his creation in all this...where is Gods justice on half his creation in all this...where is God in any of this "gender equality' that scholars are soooo quick to give lectures on....but rarely ever mention the reality? More on that later....

I completely agree with you. You are asking the questions no one wants to ask because no one wants to change or be accountable. "Just put it on the women."
