17 cruel and unbelievable Rules and Verses in the Quran and Islam – 13 Jun 12


After writing some crazy and cruel rules in Christianity and in Hinduism in the last two days, we also did some serious research for the same in Islam and I think we reached quite a good result.

Good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah has guarded. As for those from whom you fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. (Quran 4:34)

Believing women should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; they should not display their beauty and ornaments; they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands and male and female relatives or their husband’s slaves or male servants free of physical needs, or small children; and they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. (Quran 24:31)

Those who hide the Scripture will have their bellies eaten with fire. Theirs will be a painful doom. (Quran 2:174)

Christians and Jews (who believe in only part of the Scripture), will suffer in this life and go to hell after death. (Quran 2:85)

Kill disbelievers wherever you find them. If they attack you, then kill them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. (Quran 2:191)

Virgins await those who enter paradise. (Quran 3:15)

Those who disbelieve, promise them a painful doom. (Quran 3:21)

Those who brag about doing good will go to hell. (Quran 3:188)

Unbelievers will be tormented forever with fire. When their skin is burned off, a fresh skin will be provided. (Quran 4:56)

Those who make war with Allah and his messenger will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. That is how they will be treated in this world, and in the next they will have an awful doom. (Quran 5:33)

Those who disbelieve will be forced to drink boiling water, and will face a painful doom. (Quran 6:70)

Those who are tormented in the Fire will have their foreheads and backs branded. (Quran 9:35)

Whoever thinks that Allah will not assist him in this life and the hereafter, let him stretch a rope to the ceiling, then let him hang himself, then let him see if his struggle will take away that at which he is enraged. (Quran 22:15)

The adulterer and the adulteress, scourge ye each one of them (with) a hundred stripes. And let not pity for the twain withhold you from obedience to Allah, if ye believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of believers witness their punishment. (Quran 24:2)

Those who consider the Quran to be "mere fables" will be branded on the nose. (Quran 68:15-16)

If a woman fed a male colleague "directly from her breast" at least five times they would establish a family bond and thus be allowed to be alone together. (Egyptian Fatwa of 2007, retracted)

While the last one has been retracted and is thus not really valid, I found it too funny not to be included. Tomorrow I will write a summary of what I think of these three lists that I have made.
