Prophet Muhammad pbuh, instituted the death penalty for the RAPIST. Sadly enough Muslims of our times are so far from Islam that they have not implemented this Hadith.

If superiority is given to anyone in Islam, it is given to women who are mothers. The prophet, pbuh, put the mother 3 times above the father. The Qur’an puts the mother second only to Allah. The Prophet, pbuh, in Hadith guarantees Paradise to those who bring up their daughters well. He told men that the best among them are those who are best to their wives
. * We must understand RAPE, the ultimate crime against a woman, to be able to understand the world we live in. Most sociologists, psychologists and criminologists agree that rape has little to do with sex and is mostly related to the projection of male power against a helpless victim. It is the ultimate form of terrorism.
* The problem we are facing in uniting activist groups is that those who are politically organized do not focus on the rights of women [or rarely do], and those who support women’s rights do not oppose, actively, war and political oppression.
* From the life of Muhammad, pbuh, we learn that there is a natural link between human rights and women’s rights. Westernized women in Muslim societies are often linked to dictators and oppressors who are backed by western powers and hence are ineffective
