Poor little kid! Her young life was one of abuse.
The tragic irony of Islam is that its ‘sacred’ text, the Qur’an, is particularly solicitous of women’s well-being and development, yet Islamic traditions discriminate against girls from the moment of their lamented births. Islam is proud to have abolished female infanticide, yet one of the most common crimes in many Muslim countries is the “honor killing” of women by male relatives.
The Qur’an permits divorce without fault, but Muslim societies have made divorce both legally and socially very difficult for women. The Qur’an stipulates that both parents must concur on the raising of children and not use the children against each other, but in many Muslim countries divorced women automatically lose custody of their children when the boys turn 7 and the girls 12.
There is no marital age-limit for a woman, girl, or infant baby girl to be handed over to an adult male. There are no restrictions on sexual abuse, incest or even rape within a family.
While the Qur’an offers Jannah (heaven) to men, no such rewards are promised to women. The woman is not viewed as an individual being, but as with animals, they are the “property” of men meaning the men can do whatever they please to them and no law can come to the rescue of women.
No wonder the mother did not want a gender that displeases Allah so much.
