ISLAMIC INCEST

In this post I provide a further illustration of just how incoherent, irrational and sexually perverse Islam truly is.  

Many people are unaware that Muhammad’s religion actually permits incest in certain situations, particularly in cases where a man sires a daughter out of wedlock. According to specific Muslim scholars, the man is free to marry and have sex with such a daughter since she is not considered to be a part of his lineage due to her being the result of adultery/fornication, i.e., zina.

These scholars based this understanding on the following Quranic text:

And it is He Who has created man from water, and has appointed for him kindred by blood, and kindred by marriage. And your Lord is Ever All-Powerful to do what He will. S. 25:54 Hilali-Khan

Here is renowned Muslim scholar and commentator al-Qurtubi’s explanation of Q. 25:54:

نَسَبًا وَصِهْرًا

النَّسَب وَالصِّهْر مَعْنَيَانِ يَعُمَّانِ كُلّ قُرْبَى تَكُون بَيْن آدَمِيَّيْنِ . قَالَ اِبْن الْعَرَبِيّ : النَّسَب عِبَارَة عَنْ خَلْط الْمَاء بَيْن الذَّكَر وَالْأُنْثَى عَلَى وَجْه الشَّرْع ; فَإِنْ كَانَ بِمَعْصِيَةٍ كَانَ خَلْقًا مُطْلَقًا وَلَمْ يَكُنْ نَسَبًا مُحَقَّقًا , وَلِذَلِكَ لَمْ يَدْخُل تَحْت قَوْله : ” حُرِّمَتْ عَلَيْكُمْ أُمَّهَاتكُمْ وَبَنَاتكُمْ ” [ النِّسَاء : 23 ] بِنْته مِنْ الزِّنَى ; لِأَنَّهَا لَيْسَتْ بِبِنْتٍ لَهُ فِي أَصَحّ الْقَوْلَيْنِ لِعُلَمَائِنَا وَأَصَحّ الْقَوْلَيْنِ فِي الدِّين ; وَإِذَا لَمْ يَكُنْ نَسَب شَرْعًا فَلَا صِهْر شَرْعًا فَلَا يُحَرِّم الزِّنَى بِنْت أُمّ وَلَا أُمّ بِنْت , وَمَا يَحْرُم مِنْ الْحَلَال لَا يَحْرُم مِنْ الْحَرَام ; لِأَنَّ اللَّه اِمْتَنَّ بِالنَّسَبِ وَالصِّهْر عَلَى عِبَاده وَرَفَعَ قَدْرهمَا , وَعَلَّقَ الْأَحْكَام فِي الْحِلّ وَالْحُرْمَة عَلَيْهِمَا فَلَا يَلْحَق الْبَاطِل بِهِمَا وَلَا يُسَاوِيهِمَا . قُلْت : اِخْتَلَفَ الْفُقَهَاء فِي نِكَاح الرَّجُل اِبْنَته مِنْ زِنًى أَوْ أُخْته أَوْ بِنْت اِبْنه مِنْ زِنًى ; فَحَرَّمَ ذَلِكَ قَوْم مِنْهُمْ اِبْن الْقَاسِم , وَهُوَ قَوْل أَبِي حَنِيفَة وَأَصْحَابه , وَأَجَازَ ذَلِكَ آخَرُونَ مِنْهُمْ عَبْد الْمَلِك بْن الْمَاجِشُونِ , وَهُوَ قَوْل الشَّافِعِيّ , وَقَدْ مَضَى هَذَا فِي ” النِّسَاء ” مُجَوَّدًا

“It is He Who has created man from water: Then has He established relationships of lineage and marriage: for thy Lord has power (over all things).” (Surah 25:54)

“Regarding the terms ‘lineage and relationship through marriage’:

“Lineage and relationship through marriage are two terms that describe the personal relationships that may exist between humans. Ibn Al-Arabi said, “Lineage is an expression referring to the mixture of fluids between a male and a female from a religious legal point of view. However, if this union (between male and female) occurs through disobedience (fornication) then the resulting child is not considered a part of a person’s true lineage. That is why a daughter born from adultery is not mentioned in Allah’s saying, ‘Prohibited to you (for marriage) are: your mothers and daughters’ (Surah 4:23) because she is not considered a daughter according to the most authentic teaching of our (Islamic) scholars and the most authentic teaching of our religion. If there is no legal lineage then there is no legal relationship; for adultery does not prohibit (from marriage) the daughter of the mother (you committed adultery with) nor the mother of a woman (you committed adultery with). What is lawfully prohibited is not also prohibited due to sin, for Allah has bestowed lineage and relation through marriage upon his servants and greatly esteemed these relationships. Allah has also established laws identifying what is legal and what is prohibited, which are not equal to each other; therefore falsehood cannot be a part of these laws.

“I (Qurtubi) said: The scholars have differed on the permissibility of a man marrying his daughter who was the result of an adulterous relationship; or for that matter marrying his sister or granddaughter who was the result of adultery. Some prohibited this type of relationship; among them was Ibn al-Qasim, which is also the saying of Abu Hanifah and his companions. Others however, allowed this type of marriage such as Abdul Malik al-Maj’shun, which is also the saying of al-Shafi’i. This was detailed in the explanation of Surah 4 (Al Nisa’).”

Thus, certain Muslim scholars and Islamic schools of jurisprudence allow for a man to marry his very own daughter, as long as she was born from fornication or an adulterous relationship!

If the foregoing doesn’t convince readers that there is something seriously wrong and satanic about the Islamic religion, then I don’t know what will.
