of unbelievers as *"the worst animals" and thus declares
Himself to be "the enemy of infidels." So odious is
His detestation of those, who do not believe in Him, that He orders
their murder and pillage on a permanent basis. To complete this
most horrendous plan, He offers for these misdeeds rewards of
paradise, the most luxurious place for the choicest carnal pleasures.
Thus, sex and violence rank as the two pillars of the Islamic
Chador Hejab Prison
Woman is a commodity trapped in the Islamic Prison
to bear in mind that the basic belief of Islam is that Allah is
One and He is "the Creator, Almighty and All-knowing."
If this were true, He would have created everybody a Muslim. Since
this is not the case because people are born as Hindus, Christians,
Jews, atheists, etc., converting them through violence and sexual
bribe, cannot be the Divine approach. Still worse, a person who
believes in God alone, does not rank as a Muslim, and deserves
the punishment of hell-fire. To qualify for paradise, one must
believe in Muhammad as well. Obviously, Muhammad is as great as
In fact, Allah
is just a figurehead and Muhammad is the real driving force behind
Islam because it is he, who is the Model of Behaviour, which must
be closely followed by the Muslim, and it is his Intercessory
powers, which get people into paradise, abounding in lewd festivities.
One must also note that Muhammad is "the Mercy for all beings"
whereas Allah, despite claiming to be All-Merciful, is the Creator
of Hell, which He is committed to fill with infidels. How self-contradictory
the person of Allah is!

and robbing innocent people is the greatest evil that there can
be. What is even more baffling is the fact that Allah calls such
atrocities as Jehad (the holy war), declares pillage as "lawful
and good" and offers paradise as a reward for such abominations.
When we analyse
the scheme of Jehad, the holy code of violence, and its reward
i.e. paradise, the most luxurious place for the choicest sensual
merriments, we realise that sex and violence are not isolated
concepts but integral parts of the well-meditated Islamic Sexual
Psychology, which seeks to exploit man's weakness for libidinous
delights at the expense of feminine rights and dignity.
No God shall
resort to sex and violence for securing followers. This is blasphemous
for being injurious to the concept of Divinity. It is simply a
Muhammadan plan for building an Arab Empire.
Psychology may be a new discovery, because it is being discussed
as such for the first time in this book, but as a fact it has
always been there. To establish this truth, I have avoided all
those references, which may be construed as misinterpretations.
Since the purpose of this dissertation is not to forge lies, but
serve the cause of public good, it is hoped that the Muslim scholars
shall respond by acting according to those Koranic verses, which
suggest that the truth must be supported by argument ( 2: 111
) and not coercion ( 2: 255 ).
my sincerity in the project, I ought to declare that since this
book has been written and published for public good, it is not
intended for sale.

Islamic Concept of Sexual Psychology
message when analysed carefully, emerges as a novel doctrine of
sexual psychology, which stands on the two pillars of carnal enjoyment
and conscience--free violence in the name of Allah, who claims
to be the Most Merciful and the Best Judge. Though this faith
cannot stand without these props, they have been masterfully camouflaged
with Divine Veneer, which loses its luster when subjected to a
this truth, I must first, narrate the two universal legends -
The Greek and the Biblical - which have determined the sexual
status of woman in Islam, and the appeal of her carnal attraction
in arousing the spirit of Jehad, the holy concept of violence,
seeking plunder, persecution and paralysis of non-Muslim societies.
tradition holds that Pandora, the first woman was especially created
by Zeus, the King of gods, to punish man for receiving the gift
of fire that Prometheus had stolen from Heaven. He commanded Hephaestus,
the divine artisan, to mix earth with water for preparing woman's
body, which ought to have man's voice, but in fairness and beauty
it must resemble an immortal goddess. He bade Athena to teach
her the art of weaving highly complex webs. The golden Aphrodite
was ordered to embellish her (woman's) head with grace, as well
as, painful desire, and cares that decimate limbs. At the same
time, Hermes, the god's messenger, was told to equip her with
a dog-like mind and deceitful manners. To obey Zeus, the gods
allotted her a beguiling mode of utterance. When the creative
act was completed, the woman was called Pandora because every
god had bestowed on her a gift, which was to be a source of some
mischief to man.
souvenir was presented by Zeus to man - Epimetheus, whose brother
Prometheus, had warned him not to accept any memento from gods.
So beautiful was Pandora that Epimetheus could not resist the
temptation of accepting her.
How did this
Divine plan materialize? Prometheus had left a mysterious box
in the custody of Epimetheus with the express instructions not
to open it under any circumstance. When Pandora saw it, her curiosity
became boundless. She opened the box whereupon ten thousand evils
rushed out and started plaguing man. Hope was the only one that
could not escape for the timely replacement of the lid.
listened to Epimetheus, evil would have been unknown in the world.
Thus, the moral of the story is:
1. Man is innocent and woman is guilty.
2. It is the sexual attraction of woman that misled Epimetheus to
accept the gift despite a stern warning from his brother not to
3. Since Epimetheus heeded the warning but Pandora did not, man is
superior to woman in resolve, wisdom and general character but
woman is the source of mischief, misery and misunderstanding.
point of view about womanhood seems to have served as the cornerstone
of the Greek culture, allotting her the lowest status in society.
As a result, the Greek culture became patriarchal in which woman
ranked as a household chattel. She was just a man's sexual toy;
even in this state she had to compete with boys, who were preferred
by majority of men.
this Greek legend has exerted an enormous influence on human civilization,
but the Biblical story of Adam's creation has a greater psychological
depth than the Pandora's tale. The Bible states:
man in His own image, "the Lord God said, It is not good
that the man should be alone: I will make him an help meet (companion)
the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fail upon Adam, and he slept:
and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;"
the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made He a woman,
and brought her unto the man."
Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh:
she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of man."
shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave
unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."
they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed."
( Genesis 2: 18- 25 )
In these verses,
it is clearly stated that:
1. Man without woman is a lonely being.
2. Man has precedence over woman because she has been created out
of his rib.
3. Woman is the dearest thing to man because he believes her to be
"the bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh."
and woman shall leave their parents to live together until death
them do part.
5. Because of their closeness, it is not shameful for man and woman
to be naked in each other's company.
to the Biblical description, man is the source of woman's creation,
and she has been brought about for the company and pleasure of
man. Yet, in status, she is nearly equal to man because they have
to live together eternally as one flesh.
So far so
good. However, the story of creation adds a strange twist to this
affair by adding that the couple were found a home in the Garden
of Eden where there was to be no sorrow, no illness and no death,
and where all luxuries of life would be available free, just for
In the Garden,
there was "the tree of knowledge of good and evil."
(Genesis 2: 9) The Lord God expressly forbade Adam not to eat
the fruit of this particular tree but he defied the Creator at
the behest of Eve, his wife. Since this event shows that man rebelled
against God to please his woman, it demonstrates the significance
of sexual delight to man. Stated briefly, the event establishes
1. So important is carnal gratification to man that he will defy
God for sexual pleasure. On the contrary, God shall be adored
by man most humbly and fervently if He were to promise him abundant
sexual satisfaction by way of houris (beautiful virgins) and ghilmaan
(pretty boys) as the reward for obeying Him.
is the chief drive of male activity and plays a major role in
his felicity and frustration. Diagnosis of his mental, physical
and spiritual condition is somehow, associated with the realization
of his sexual dreams. This link is not restricted to puberty and
adolescence but goes back to infancy because parental harmony
and discord, which influence baby's tendencies, are broadly determined
by their sexual attitudes and mutual satisfaction. No matter how
educated and materially prosperous a household be, without sexual
match, which is the fountain of love, it cannot provide a healthy
growth to the children.
3. Sexual appeal of woman is her greatest shield against the brutal
proclivities of man. In fact, it is more than a shield: it can
be an offensive feminine weapon to tame, twiddle and twist him.
The effectiveness of this tool can be greatly enhanced by the
woman who knows the art of loving, shedding tears, self-beautification,
tantalisation, and keeping man at a boiling point through hearty,
hilarious and high-sounding promises.
Church Elders failed to gauge the psychological depth of this
episode. Instead of utilising its hidden wisdom for the good of
humankind, they used it to promote their selfish interests. Calling
this event as the origin of sin, which precipitated Adam's fall,
they branded woman as the agent of Satan and the enemy of man.
This Christian interpretation led to the inferior social status
of woman and creation of a patriarchal society with its concomitant
afflictions to the fair sex.
Both the tales
of Pandora and Eve have been invented to depict woman as the enemy
of man. An enemy is someone, who is feared because he or she has
the power to damage, debilitate and devastate. Feminine charm,
which is the aggregate of woman's sexual appeal plus her tantalising
manners, constitutes the powerful threat that makes man grovel
before her. These tales not only indicate man's fear of woman
but also arouse his contempt, preparing him for a head-on collision
is known by its opposite: for example, light can be recognised
by darkness only and the concept of sweet has no meaning without
bitter. In fact, all psychological attributes e.g., love, friendship,
etc., also have their opposites. Feminine charm is no exception:
man is endowed with dominance-urge, which acts as a counter to
the feminine charm.
It is not
to say that women do not possess dominance-urge. They certainly
do, but this trait is a far less effective part of their personality
compared to what I call Feminine Charm. The fact that human society
has been chiefly patriarchal, proves decisively that the male
urge to dominate is severe, successful and supreme.
society is the one in which man is the boss; his word is the law
and woman has no choice but to obey him in his capacity as a father,
son and husband. In a nutshell, she exists only for the pleasure
and convenience of man. This is an extreme form of degradation,
which woman would try to avoid at all costs, if she could, but
it has not been possible over the centuries except in casual circumstances
when small matriarchal societies appeared for short periods.
of dominance-urge is explained by the pecking order where the
stronger bird pecks the weaker bird for no other reason than making
a show of his commanding stature. It is this dominance-urge, which
is the source of competition in all walks of life, setting new
and higher goals to be achieved.
To my mind,
the mechanism of human culture, in the last resort, is operated
by the fraction of Feminine Charm and Dominance-Urge. These two
opposites are different from the physical opposites known as positive
and negative poles, which are equal in magnitude, and act as functional
mates and not as adversaries.
On the contrary,
dominance-urge recognises no other goal than securing ascendancy
on both friends and foes. This is the reason that it can be malicious,
merciless and morally bankrupt. Since woman has been projected
as the chief enemy of man, dominance-urge is particularly misogynist
i.e., hater of womanhood, and requires its total submission through
a process of cunningness but painted in brilliant colours of serenity,
sincerity and suavity. Religion has been man's best friend because
it has enabled him to unleash his dominance-urge to fool and snool
women in the name of God, who wants them to surrender all their
human rights to please their fathers, husbands, sons and brothers!
Polygamy, concubinage etc., which turns women into appetising
sexual objects of seraglios, are some of the well-known examples.
before, the earth has occasionally relished matriarchal societies
on a limited scale. It represents a social state where mother
is the head of the family and descent is reckoned in the female
line. Thus, matriarchy is the antonym of patriarchy.
Woman is artful
in relation to man because this is the only way she can survive.
Otherwise, she is mercy, love and care. This is the reason that,
as a general rule, she is a poor substitute for a man in the political
and military fields, which require tough, selfish and murderous
attitudes to succeed and prosper. In a matriarchy i.e., government
by women, its members may bicker but it is unlikely that they
will declare and wage bloody wars because they are too soft to
be severe and too kind to be cruel.
background discussion, I am in a positive to state why the Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him) chose sex and violence as the two
pillars of Islam.
(in known history) has ever possessed the magnitude of dominance-urge
that Muhammad did. If we turn the entire humankind into a pyramid,
right at the apex shall be found the Arabian Prophet: he declared
himself to be the divine Model of Behaviour for the human race,
which means that everyone should think and feel like him, act
and rest like him, walk and talk like him, eat and drink like
him; all the laws he made in the name of Allah are there to suit
his convenience; faith in God alone is immaterial to qualify for
divine mercy or salvation unless one believes in him as well;
he is the Intercessor because it is his word on the Day of Judgement,
which shall decide whether a person is entitled to hell or heaven.
Above all, Allah and His angels pray peace to Muhammad i.e., worship
. this is what testifies to the immensity of Muhammad's
dominance-urge: even Jesus Christ is found praying to Jehovah,
the God, but Allah, the God adores Muhammad along with His angels!
of position, which is beyond the grip of both man and God, requires
patience, planning and power. The prophet was endowed with all
these elements and the ability to operate them with an unusual
degree of success. Having discussed them fully in my book "Islam,
The Arab Imperialism," I need not describe them here again
except to state that the Prophet decided to weld his nation into
a formidable fighting force for creating a mighty empire, principally
founded on his personal holiness, and sanctity of teachings. In
an effort to make the Arabs a stout and fearless army that could
administer a mighty dose of torture, tyranny and torment to achieve
his imperial goal, the Prophet used sex appeal as the most attractive
force to draw men towards his cause. However, realising that man's
delights are not restricted to carnal enjoyment, he widened the
fascination of his appeal and invented Jehad, which not only provided
abundant supplies of women and boys to his holy soldiers (Mujahadeen)
but also legalised loot and murder of non--Muslims and served
as the best way to please Allah. This was the Prophet's master-stroke
to create a fantastic faith in his followers' minds that robbery,
murder, seduction, spreading untold misery and creating helpless
orphans and widows as Jehad (the Holy War) was the supreme act
of piety that assured wide opening of the heavenly portals. Of
course, there had been terrible predators known as conquerors
before the time of Muhammad, but nobody had ever named such atrocities
as pieties packed with blessings, benedictions and beatitudes.
This power of brainwashing that the Prophet Muhammad possessed,
was not only massive but also everlasting because it is still
going strong on both counts, even after a passage of fourteen
It is only
tough, tedious and tyrannical men, who win battlefields; effeminate
fellows faint at the sight of blood. The deep insight that the
Prophet possessed enabled him to exploit the psychological mechanism,
which I may describe as "feminine charm versus dominance
urge." When the goal is achievement of personal ascendancy
both in love and loathing and fair and foul, the urge of dominance
seldom recognises the established rules of conduct. Therefore,
the Prophet Muhammad had to rise the status of men at expense
of women. So he hammered out a plan of sexual gratification based
on male command, which embellished man with dictatorial rights
and turned woman into a sexual toy. Man was legally empowered
to set up private brothels, technically known as seraglios. These
abodes of luxurious wickedness carried out only the approval of
"The Most Munificent" Allaha but also constituted as
the sole object of salvation because a Muslim obeys the commands
of Allaha-Muhammad only for the purpose of gaining entry into
paradise, which is inhabited by the most exquisite virgins and
boys, the source of wonderful sexual delights.
"theory of feminine charm versus dominance-urge" could
be an effective scheme to secure the purpose of Muhammad, putting
it into practice was an extremely difficult task because the land
of Arabia had a matriarchal system, which bestowed considerable
reverence and authority on a mother or grandmother.
It has been
the policy of Islam to destroy the pre--lslamic culture of the
land wherever it achieved domination. Arabia itself is no exception.
Yet if one gazes through history, one finds that Arabia can boast
of several queens during the pre-Islamic era. It would not have
been possible unless women enjoyed fundamental civic rights:
We find that
Tiglath-Pileser III (745-727 B.C.), who founded the Assyrian Empire,
carried out several military expeditions against Syria and its
adjoining territories. In the third year of his reign, he succeeded
in exacting tribute from Zabibi, the Queen of Aribi (Arabia).
Another Arabian queen, who was conquered by him during the ninth
year of his rule, was called Shamsiyah.
king, bearing an Indian name Odaynath, who chased the famous Persian
Shapur to the walls of his Capital, Ctesiphon (al-Madain), had
a beautiful, courageous and ambitious wife called Zenobia. Appointing
herself the regent of her son Wahb-Allath, she ruled her land
capably and after repulsing several Roman attempts to re-conquer
Palmyra, she declared herself to be the Queen of the East.
The most famous
of all the Arabian queens was the Shunammite girl, whose beauty
bewitched Solomon, the Wise, considered a major Prophet of God
by the Muslims. She is believed to be an Arab of the Kedar tribe.
Her physical elegance has been preserved by Solomon, who also
happened to be a romantic poet. This Arab damsel called Bilqis
is known to history as Queen of Sheba. Hearing the fabulous tales
of Solomon's wisdom, she became enamoured of him, and travelled
all the way to Jerusalem with abundant gifts to see him. The meeting
proved to be really jubilant. In return, the Wise Solomon "gave
unto the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked,
beside that which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she
turned and went to her own country, she and her servants."
(1 Kings: 10. 13)
have been interpreted by the Biblical scholars to mean that Solomon
showered sexual favours on her when she was his guest. Exaggerated
it may seem, but its veracity has been borne out by history. This
Prophet of God indulged in the hobby of woman-collecting. Thus
he succeeded in adding no fewer than 300 concubines to his harem,
which also contained wedded wives!
to the fact that the Queen of Sheba conceived to celebrate the
erotic hilarity of the occasion and gave birth to a son, who came
to be known as Menelik the second: he fathered a small African
tribe of Jews, called Falasha, whose existence remained unknown
of this description is to demonstrate that the Arab women did
not live as veiled captives of their men. This situation was created
by Islam to manipulate womanhood. The Prophet Muhammad himself
was a trusted employee of Khadija, whom he married later. It is
noteworthy that the Allaha did not command Muslim women to observe
purdah (veil} during the life-time of powerful Khadija, who was
a caravan trader in her own right. Nor did Muhammad indulge in
polygamy when she was alive despite the fact that she was fifteen
years older than he was and had been married twice before becoming
also note that polyandry was a recognized custom of Arabia before
the advent of Muhammad. It refers to the practice that allows
a woman to have legally more than one husband at the same time,
and gives her a commanding position in the household.
story of Draupadi shows that polyandry as a legal custom originated
in India. She was married to the five Pandava brothers. Polyandry
is not a privileged sexual access to a woman by several men. It
is a form of regular marriage in which woman is the boss. This
practice was associated with the customs of kinship. It is usually
brothers, who are found in this marital relationship, though unrelated
men can also enter this arrangement and call themselves "
was totally different in essence from the "lek mentality;"
lek refers to the communal area in which two or more males of
a species perform courtship displays. While the lek behaviour
of insects such as fire flies is playful, among male mammals,
it means an arena, which they enter to display ferocity for establishing
their priority to sex, food and water. The standing-by females
are so much awed by the winning male that they willingly submit
to him for satisfying his sexual desires. This is the situation
in which a female has no rights; she does not have to be a consenting
partner; she must be available when she is wanted. This is what
I call "Sex by domination;" it nullifies the defensive
role of feminine charm, which gives the fair sex her grace, greatness
and grandeur. Sexually, this is an ideal situation for man because
it enables him to have carnal pleasure by command.
is opposite of matriarchal institution, which demands genuine
respect for female beauty and dignity. In fact, this social state
carries the same significance for fair sex as a flower has for
bees, flame for moths and rain for the parched soil. Thus it lowers
the value of dominance-urge, which usually is driving force for
man. In fact, manliness is associated with urge of dominance which
motivates him to tame brutes, humble storms and build empires.
Men, whose aggressive spirit is dampened by consideration of sexual
pleasures, change into sex-worshippers. They become effeminate
and cannot rise to the situations demanding high tests of toughness,
dare and supremacy.
In this sense,
feminine charm ceases to be the opposite pole of dominance-urge
for lacking equality of functional dynamism and acts as an ineffective
challenge to man's brute force, which is not only physical but
also intellectual. Dominance-urge is to manliness what fire is
to locomotive engine, eruption of lava is to earthquake roar is
to lion. Thus, man feels that he is not a man unless he is the
dominant member of community. This is the secret of the patriarchal
society, which is established at the expense of women's rights.
Muhammad knew this fact, his marriage to Khadija, in which she
was evidently the dominant partner, must have made him more conscious
of the male dominance-urge. So he forged the doctrinal policy
of Dominance-Urge vs Feminine Charm for creating a really virile,virulent
and vibrant nation which built an empire. Thus, he allotted sexual
pleasure, the central role in his religion deliberations: man
was to have all the rights and woman was to burdened with all
the obligations; man could legitimately have as many woman as
he wished in the form of wives and concubines; only a true Muslim
was to enter paradise, the place of the choicest sex; and the
pious and swift way of securing houris (the paradisiac virgins)
was through Jehad, which makes mutilation, murder and massacre
of non-Muslims so holy that in case of surviving battle, the Mujahid
(warrior) receives plundered wealth and women as Allaha's mercy
and if he is killed in action, he goes straight to paradise where
no fewer than seventy-two houris are restlessly waiting to offer
him their lusty goodies.
purpose of this divine planning is to instal Muhammad as the holiest
of holies. This was not possible without waging wars, but men
do not risk their lives without expecting high rewards. The solution
is the concept of holy Jehad, which the Prophet conceived masterfully.
It is claimed
that the real Superpose of Jehad is to enforce righteousness and
forbid evil. History does not support this view of the Koran.
Here is an episode which reveals the true nature of Jehad and
its relationship to sex:
of Honein, which was fought on February 1, 630 A.D. yielded the
camels, 40,000 sheep and goats, 4,000 ounces of silver and 6,000
prisoners. They were removed to the neighbouring valley of Al-Jirana,
and sheltered there, awaiting the return of the army from At-Taif."
At-Taif held out bravely but when Muhammad's army started destroying
their famous vineyards, which formed the backbone of their economy,
they surrendered but the time that this process took was too long
for the soldiers of Allah to wait for their share of the plunder.
the restoration of prisoners to their relatives, as Muhammad mounted
his camel and proceeded to his tent, further waiting proved very
trying for his followers, who wanted an immediate distribution
of the booty. Barricading his way, they shouted: "Distribute
to us the spoil - the camels and the flocks!"
did they jostle him that he was driven to seek refuge under a
tree, with his mantle torn from his shoulders
to me my mantle, O man:' cried Muhammad, who had now secured a
more free position, extricating himself with some difficulty from
the crush: - 'Return my mantle: for I swear by the Lord that if
the sheep and the camels were as many as the trees of the forest
in number, I would divide them all amongst you. Ye have not heretofore
found me niggardly or false."
plucking from his camel's hump a hair, he held it aloft, and said,
'even to a hair like this, I would keep back nought but the Fifth;
and even that I will divide amongst you.' They were pacified,
and Muhammad went on his way."
From the above
quotation, it is quite clear that the followers of Muhammad joined
him in his invasions not to enforce good but to secure plunder;
their greed is demonstrated by their rude treatment of the Prophet.
was a tool of the Prophet for gaining followers to glorify himself
through distribution of plunder. According to this episode, the
Prophet gave much bigger shares to those who had just embraced
Islam, and whose conversion had some significance. For example,
Abu Sufyan along with his two sons, received 100 camels each.
And so did Hakim Ibn Hizam, Safwan, Suheil and several others.
These are the men who had been Muhammad's deadly enemies only
a few weeks earlier. The lesser chiefs received fifty camels each.
Those who still grumbled, their share was doubled without hesitation.
men like Joeil, who received nothing except lip-sympathy. In reply
to the complaint about such a distribution, the Prophet said,
"I wish to gain over the hearts of these men to Islam, while
Joeil bath no need of such inducement."
Is it not
pure politics? Does the Almighty need this type of behaviour to
pacify men with plunder of the innocent in return for worship
? If it is really the attitude of Allah, then is He worthy of
women are the two psychological weaknesses of man, and Jehad remedies
them both. Among the captives of At-Taif were three beautiful
women. The Prophet gave one of them to All, another to Uthman
and the third to Umar.
to remember that All and Uthman were the Prophet's sons-in-law,
and Umar was his father-in--law.
should be noted that Islam held it legitimate to have sexual intercourse
with one's slave-girls; the Prophet himself had at least two slave-girls.
One of them, Mary, was the mother of his son Ibrahim, who died
as an infant. Such a practice was considered a grave offence in
the Roman Empire and carried sentence of death for the lewd master.
to one's son-in-law and father--in-law is certainly an unusual
act; its moral undertones are difficult to understand unless it
is treated as an integral part of Jehad, which declares it Allah's
blessing to a Muiahid, the Muslim warrior, though to women folk,
it is the greatest blight reducing them to the status of a household
chattel, which can be abused, sold or thrown away. It clearly
shows that Jehad is man's tool of dominance, which seeks to humiliate
women for easy and cheap sex.
view about sex and violence has been camouflaged so skillfully
that vice appears as virtue, wrong as right and dark as bright.
The stark truth is that it is nothing but sexual psychology, purposely
developed to create and sustain Arab Imperialism. Since its face
is being unveiled for the first time in this book, it is imperative
that confusion forms no part of its description. Therefore, its
salient points ought to be reiterated in terms of modern psychology
with reference to its origin, nature and purpose. The Islamic
theory of sexual psychology may be stated as follows:
Sex and violence
are the two pillars that have supported Islam since its inception.
Though in practice, they have wrought havoc with civilization,
in appearance, they represent the apex of purity, piety and providence.
blended sex and violence in its doctrine so diligently that these
two elements along with their details, constitute what may be
called "Sexual Psychology."
What is Islamic
sexual psychology? To understand this concept one should refer
to the Old Testament. Its fundamentals are to be found in Genesis
1-3. Stated simply, it means that God made man (Adam) in His own
image. Realising that Adam is lonely, and thus unhappy, God created
woman from Adam's rib. This shows man's precedence over woman,
whose naturally allotted function cannot be anything but living
for man's pleasure. Since woman comes out of man, she essentially
controls his psychological mechanism and thus, his felicity and
frustration come to depend upon her attitude towards him. She
exerts such an enormous influence on man that he defies God for
paying deference to woman. This is how woman becomes a threat
to God and all those who want to be godly. Therefore, it is the
will of God to coerce woman's liberties for keeping her under
the control of man!
In view of
the restrictions that Islam has imposed on woman's rights, it
emerges that her ability to provide man with sexual delight is
her competent weapon, which is made lethal by her virtues of presence,
cunningness, flirtation, arts of beautification, sartorial elegance
and modes of self--exhibition. The combined effect of these skills
may be termed as "Feminine Charm." Of course, it is
highly desirable, but despite being alluring, gratifying and delightful,
it is inimical to man's urge of dominance, which is the fountain
of his greatness, grandeur and glory. A man enslaved by feminine
charm ceases to be manly because he develops womanly characteristics,
which disqualify him as a soldier, a pioneer, an adventurer or
is man's greatest delight, it is unnatural for him to become an
ascetic or practice celebacy. In fact, the more the chances for
a man to enjoy sex, the greater the likelihood for his happiness,
but carnal gratification must not result in man's surrender to
feminine charm. On the contrary, it must reinforce man's dominance-urge
but this is possible only if he can achieve sexual satisfaction
by command, and not by pleading. Thus, there is a direct clash
between man's dominance-urge and woman's feminine charm. Since
dominance-urge is the drive, which enables him to conquer all
challenges, Islam has taken all those legal and social steps,
which deprive woman of her liberties to decimate the powers of
feminine charm; polygamy, purdah, (veiling), man's superior rights
of inheritance, discriminatory privileges in tendering legal evidence
and divorcing woman at will, are some of the examples.
What is even
more stunning is man's prerogative to beat woman when she fails
to delight him or denies him the pleasures that he demands. Woman-beating
is not only a speciality of Islam but a part of the integral disabilities
that this religion inflicts on woman to make her think of male--persecution
as a source of divine benediction, bliss and beatification. This
veneered piety is, in fact, a form of masochism, which has several
1. It applies to those people, who find sexual gratification in self-humiliation
and physical injury.
2. Its meaning is also extended to the self-damaging behaviour, which
has become the hall-mark of a Muslim woman's piety; her husband
ranks as her metaphoric god and she feels pious, proud and privileged
to make him happy by humiliating herself!
3. Subservient sexual role of Muslim women through self-demotion,
which is a form of masochism, has been prescribed for them by
the Koran: it lays down that women are tillage for men, who are
empowered to use them as they think fit.
is essentially a form of violence interwoven with sex. Its more
hideous kind is known as sadism, which is a state of mind requiring
sexual excitement or gratification through inflicting physical
pain, including murder Jehad is the culmination of the Islamic
sexual psychology, which motivates a Muslim soldier to participate
in battles for booty - and booty does not mean just plundered
goods but also women and children of the "enemy." These
soldiers of Allah are entitled to use them sexually; as the social
status of these concubines is that of a household chattel, their
masters enjoy carnal pleasures by command, smashing the fortification
of the feminine charm!
the Islamic concept of sexual psychology is based on the following
is man's greatest delight, which makes him so vulnerable to feminine
charm that he is prone to defy God and deify woman.
b. Man is man because he is endowed with the urge of dominance, which
enables him to fight and command. An uxurious man becomes a victim
of feminine charm and loses his manliness (the fountain of dominance-urge).
c. Thus, there is an inverse ratio between feminine charm and dominance
urge. The way to strengthen the latter is to weaken the former
through a legal code and social practices.
Muhammad was possibly, the greatest national hero that any country
ever produced. His greatness lies in the fact that he sought personal
glory through the elevation of his nation (the Arabs). To make
them dominant, he had to offer them some really attractive incentive
to fight and build an Empire where his word counts as the law
and he himself ranks as the holiest of holiest
of sexual psychology, which uses sex and violence as its two props,
proved to be the perfect source of realising the Prophetic dreams.
This book endeavours to illustrate this phenomenon in a responsible
manner, using reason and evidence as its guiding principles. It
certainly has not been written out of any animosity to Islam but
try serve the cause of humanity including the Muslims, who claim
to be required by the Koran to promote the cause of truth by argument
(2: III) and not coercion (2: 255).
