Top 10 Fast Facts about Islam Worth Knowing

Islam is not a cult – its followers number over 1.5 billion worldwide. Along with Judaism and Christianity, it is considered to be one of the three Abrahamic traditions.

There are five pillars of practice in Islam. These practices must be undertaken in order to be considered a true Muslim in the Islamic tradition: A) Shahadah – declaration of faith in the oneness of God and that Muhammad is the last prophet of God. B) Formal prayer five times a day. C) Fasting during the daylight hours in the month of Ramadan. D) Poor-due “tax” – 2.5% of one’s savings given to the needy at the end of each year. E) Pilgrimage to Mecca at least once, if physically and financially able.

There are also six articles of faith in Islam. These are the basic beliefs that one must have in order to be considered a true Muslim. They are the beliefs in: A) the One God. B) all the prophets of God. C) the original scriptures revealed to Prophets Moses, David, Jesus, and Muhammad. D) the angels. E) the Day of Judgment and the Hereafter. F) the divine decree (or destiny).

Today, Islam is a widely misconceived religion. Those who are unfamiliar with the faith often have misunderstandings about its teachings and practices. Common misconceptions include that Muslims worship a moon-god, that Islam is oppressive against women, or that Islam is a faith that promotes violence. We bust these myths and expose the true teaching of Islam in this article titled top 10 Fast Facts about Islam worth knowing. So without further ado, let’s begin:


1. Islam Considers a Daughter a Blessing


There is a very big misconception among people, especially among Westerners, that Islam depraves and degrades Muslims. Islam gives complete right and liberty to  females. The daughters are given more love and esteem than a son, Islam regards a daughter as a blessing and those families who do not have a daughter actually lack God’s blessings. The holy prophet (P.B.U.H) himself didn’t have any son, he had 4 daughters and he loved his daughters more than anything.

Allaah quote: “To Allaah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth; He creates what He wills. He gives to whom He wills female [children], and He gives to whom He wills males. Or He makes them [both] males and females, and He renders whom He wills barren. Indeed, He is Knowing and Competent.” [Quran 49:50]

As you read the above quote, you probably notice that the mention of daughters preceded that of sons, and the scholars commented on this saying: “This is to hearten daughters and encourage kindness towards them, because many fathers feel burdened by receiving a daughter. The common practice of the people during the pre-Islamic era was to hate receiving daughters, to the extent that they would bury them alive; therefore, it is as if Allaah is saying to people: `This inferior child in your estimation takes precedence in My scale.’ He also mentions daughters first to indicate their weakness, and that they are therefore more deserving of care and attention.”

Such honoring of daughters is the complete opposite of how people were accustomed to dealing with females in the pre-Islamic era, when they would degrade women and consider them as their possessions, and if news of a baby girl would come to any of them, it would be as if the man was hit by lightening.

It is said that some enemies of Qays ibn ‘Aasim At-Tameemi, who was a pre-Islamic Arab, attacked his premises and captured his daughter. Later, one of these enemies married her. After some time, the clan of Qays and that of his enemies reconciled, so they gave this daughter of his the freedom to go back to her father or remain with her husband, and she preferred to stay with her husband. At that point, Qays took a pledge upon himself to bury alive any new daughter that he would receive, and the Arabs imitated him after that. It was, therefore, this man who introduced this ‘evil practice,

During the era that preceded Islam, there were two methods that people used to kill their daughters:

· At the time of the delivery of the child, a man would order his wife to give birth next to a hole dug in the ground; if the newborn was a male, she would return home with him, otherwise, she would throw her into the pit and bury her alive, or:

· When the daughter reached six years of age, the man would tell his wife to adorn and perfume her, then he would take her to a well in the desert and tell her to look down into the well; when she would do this, he would push her into it from behind.


2. Muslims Believe in Jesus


In the Qur’an, stories about the life and teachings of Jesus Christ (called ‘Isa in Arabic) are abundant. The Qur’an provides a detailed description of his miraculous birth, his teachings, and the miracles he performed with God’s permission. There is even a chapter of the Qur’an named after his mother, Mary (Miriam in Arabic). However, Muslims believe that Jesus was a fully human prophet and not in any way divine himself.

Excerpt from Quaran: “Christ, the son of Mary, was no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food. See how God makes His signs clear to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded away from the truth!” (5:75).


3. Jihad Does Not Mean Mass Killing


Jihad is another amazing postulate of Islam but it has also been misunderstood by the people. Jihad does not mean the mass killing of non-Muslims, it means that you have to go for the rescue of your Muslim brothers who are being tortured and are not being provided with their rights. There are however some people who have misunderstood the significance of jihad and go to the extremes.

The exact definition of Jihad is “a holy war waged on behalf of Islam as a religious duty. It is also a personal struggle in devotion to Islam especially involving spiritual disciplines…”

More Information:

The people who committed 9/11 terrorist acts left a train of evidence about how they accomplished their mission, but nowhere did they leave evidence as to why they did what they did. There were no suicide notes and no phoned-in claims of responsibility after the fact. But as evidence seemed to indicate, they were supported by Osama bin Laden and the al Qaeda networks he lead before he died. Therefore, the terrorists died convinced they were waging Jihad.

Since September 11, 2001, we’ve heard this term used quite often, but for the wrong reasons.

Sohail Hashimi, a scholar from M0unt Holyoke College argues that it would be a big mistake to view the attacks of September 11 as the latest phase of an Islamic Holy War to convert unbelievers and non-followers. Base don the few statements of their mission, al Qaeda’s goals appear to be far more mundane than religious and more political and theoretical in nature. In terms of their tactics, most Muslims have rejected them as reprehensible in light of the restrictions on fighting that Islamic law upholds.


4. Women Have the Right to Refuse Marriage

Islamic Marriage

Islam gives complete liberty to the women, especially when it comes to choosing the life partner.  A woman has complete freedom to marry the man of her liking and she also has the right to refuse the marriage if she doesn’t want to have that man as her husband. The families or the parents however do choose the husband but the girl has the right to deny the marriage. Usually the Muslims girls love and respect their families a lot therefore they happily accept the man the family chooses, this however doesn’t mean that the girl is forced into the marriage, this is all a misconception.

So What Happened?

Women’s liberation is a very subjective topic, especially when it comes to Western perceptions. Are women who wear flimsy clothes free, or are they slaves to a society that requires young girls to flaunt themselves to be accepted?

Islam gave rights to women 1,400 years ago. Indeed, these rights would have startled many so-called progressive western societies even a century ago as women in Islam received rights to inheritance, their names, their earnings and roles as equals in the eyes of Allah.

Less than a century before the birth of the Prophet Muhamad, many historians believe that the 585 AD Council of Macon decreed that women do not have souls.

Women’s rights in Islam include:

– Name – Islam forbids Muslim women from removing the name of their father. Therefore, after marriage, a Muslim woman is not permitted to take the name of her husband, as is the common practice these days.

– Choice of husband – a Muslim woman has the right to refuse a marriage proposal. The Prophet made it clear that a girl’s permission is to be sought before a marriage can be validated.

– Earnings – women have the right to earn money in a halal (permissible) manner and are under no obligation to use their earnings for their upkeep. This is the responsibility of their husbands.

– Protection – it is a right of the women in Islam to be protected by their male relatives or husbands; to be housed, clothed and fed.


5. Allah is not the God of Muslims


Many non-Muslims have come to incorrectly believe that Allah is the ‘God of Muslims’ – A deity somehow different from the God of the other faiths. It should be emphasized that the term “Allah” has no implied meaning at all of an Arabian god, a Moon god or even a Muslim god. Muslims are not claiming any exclusiveness when they say “Allah”. However Allah is simply the Arabic Name of the one Almighty God; the same name by which Arabic-speaking Jews and Christians, refer to God. The Allah comes from the term ‘al-ilaah’. Al is the definite article in Arabic, equivalent to ‘the’ in English, while ilaah means ‘a deity or god’. So Allah means The God. This is beautifully articulated in the first pillar of Islam which is to believe that God is One, in Arabic it would be, “La ilaha illallah” meaning “There is no god but God”


6. Islamic Way of Life is According to the Scientific Way


Islam gives you a complete description of how you’re to spend your day, but all the actions that we do provide advantages to our health. For example, according to a research you blood pressure varies during the day so the doctors suggested that at least one time a day you should bend your body in such a way that the blood in your body rushes towards the head. The place is same as Sajdah the Muslims do five times a day during their prayers. Islam has also explained a proper time for sleeping, which is most beneficial time according to the studies done by scientist, the fast which the Muslims keep during Ramadan is a kind of dieting, and the positions in Namaz are similar to yoga. This is a never-ending list.

More Info:

Contemporary Muslim and non-Muslim scholars have recognized that scientific knowledge is not  necessarily neutral and objective, but instead carries values and concepts that are explicit to  modern Western culture. Therefore this has resulted in a concerted effort by  contemporary Islamic scholars to call for an ‘Islamic science’ or the ‘Islamization of knowledge’. Islamic scholars have also been calling for an  investigation to reflect back to the so-called ‘Golden Age of Islam’ when there seemed to have  been development in science; and an acceptance of harmony between religion and science. This  article examines how the tenets of Islam, and the Islamic view of nature facilitated the  development of science in the so-called ‘Golden Age of Islam’; how the Western view of nature  conflicts with the Islamic view. And how common or universal values can help build bridges  between modern science and Islamic science.

HarunYahya explains in an article published in Huffington Post how Islam confounds with science; unlike the Western view that claims the opposite. Science is a means that gives us access to the universe we live in and a factor that improves our life quality and increases life expectancy.

Science is an important reality that enables us to know the universe we inhabit, the Earth and our own bodies and to be able to appreciate all the beauties around us. Scientific advances have enlightened human life and opened the door to a healthier way of living. For example, by means of medical advances the average human life span today is much greater than it was a century ago. Even in the 1950s, average worldwide life expectancy was 47, whereas according to U.N. figures it had risen to 68 by 2010. Similarly, advances in other branches of science have made our lives easier and more comfortable.

For a sincere Muslim, science is a blessing that God has bestowed on humanity. Islam advocates a rational approach. In many verses of the Quran, God advises people to use their intelligence. He emphasizes the need for us to think rationally and scientifically, speaking of, “…those deeply rooted in knowledge…” and “…only people of intelligence pay heed.” (3:7). Another verse advises people to think about the formation of the universe: “…reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth…” (3:191)


7.  The Prophet Predicted Various Sects of Islam

Islam Sects

Today many people complain that the Muslims are divided into so many different sects but they do not know that the prophet  himself during his lifetime said that in the coming days the Muslims will divide themselves into 73 sects. People think that the sects are different from each other but the point is that the rituals which are being followed by the sects are the ones prophet himself followed during his life, none of the rituals are created by the people themselves, different people have selected some sunnah of the prophet and adapted them. The point is that it doesn’t matter if you pray with your hands folded on chest, or if your hands are folded on your abdominal or if your hands are lying straight, because prophet himself followed all three ways. There are mosques built by Shia and Sunnis but the thing is that every mosque is being built for Allah. People have different ways of praying but they all lie down in sajdah in front of the same creator.


8. Islam Orders to Attain All Scientific Teachings

Scientific Teaching

Many people have this opinion that Islam only asks it followers to receive the teachings of holy Quran, this is absolutely untrue. The holy prophet and the holy Quran asks all its followers to study all the fields related to science, mathematics, astronomy, physics, sociology, etc. the teaching of Islam is not restricted to a certain criteria but it has theories related to history, science and sociology.


9. Islam Does Not Ask Women to Wear the BURQA


Islam doesn’t ask the women to wear a burqa. the holy Quran says that the women are supposed to cover all their body parts properly, the dress should be loose, not very fitted so that the curves of a woman are not focused. Quran asks the women to cover their heads and cover their faces so that they may not have to endure the dirty stares of the men. There is no such thing as Burqa in the holy Quran or the teaching of holy prophets; the women however do wear Burqa because it is convenient. You can wear any kind of dress but it should not be cleavage, should cover all the body parts and your curves should not the focused, there is no point of wearing a so called Burqa if it is fitted, and if you do want to wear a Burqa it should be loose. You can choose any color you like for it, there is no law in Islam saying that the Burqa should be black, women wear black burqa because it doesn’t get dirty very often.


10. Einstein Theory of Relativity is Widely Used in Islam


The theory of relativity says that the mass, time and length remains same in constant frame of reference but they can fluctuate if the object moves with the speed of light. Einstein said that time; mass and length are not constant. Now the amazing thing is that this theory was already present in Quran and Quran was sent before Einstein was born. In surah kahf is the theory present related to time dilation, the surah gives a detailed description which relates a true event, another proof is of the event when the holy prophet went up in the sky to visit the heaven and hell during his life time and then came back to earth, he made a journey of 23 years in friction of seconds. That night is a very special night in the religion Islam. This night is another marvelous example of time dilation.

The Arabs measure time by the lunar year.  Hence if we apply this principle to the rotation of the moon in one thousand years, we find that according to scientific calculations, its speed in 299792.5 kilometer per second.  This result is in complete conformity with the speed of light according to Einstein’s theory of relativity.

Dr. M. Hassab El Naby adds that according to Einstein “the speed of light is an absolute constant,” while time and place are just relative.  This fact is mentioned in the  Qur’an and is a confirmation of the theory of relativity.

To Him the angels and the spirit mount up in a day whereof the measure is fifty thousand years. (Qur’an 70: 4)

In this verse God mentions another speed which is fifty times the speed of light, namely the speed of “angels and the spirit”. Miraculously, this verse is void of the words “of your counting”, which is a clear indication that we will never reach this speed because it is beyond our modest means.

What is interesting is that, according to the Quaran, God states that the speed of angels varies:

Praise belongs to God, originator of heavens, and earth who appointed the angels to be messengers having wings two, three and four, increasing creation as He wills surely God is powerful over everything

(Qur’an 35:1)

    Contrary to political correctness and pop culture belief, Islam is NOT a religion of peace. Read the Koran and the Hadith, and you will find out for yourself. For instance, did you know Mohammed stated it was ok to lie as long as it was for the cause of Islam? Islam’s true mission is to convert the entire world, using whatever methods to do so, including the “death of infidels” no matter how. Read for yourself and get the facts. Don’t let the majority of peace-loving Muslims fool you. It is their leaders who will instigate any and all methods to reach their goal.

  2. hello

    Kurt has obviously not read the quran… even reading the quran in english is not enough I would advice him to learn Arabic and read the Quran in its ORIGIONAL LANGUAGE.

    I can’t speak arabic myself, but read articles on the net, read a bit of the quran in english at the very least.

    Problem with people now days they try and learn thabout islam on anti islamic sites, which take verses out of context, or give you small snippets of the verse, and even at time only give you one verse ignoring the next or previous verse!

    I would suggest Kurt to read the quran and ANY VERSE he finds he ers or say “this sounds a bit off” check with an islamic scholar on a site called “onislam” it is a good site to learn a bit about islam.

    • kurt

      I have “obviously” not read the Koran???? Give me a break! The reason for my comment is that I HAVE read the Koran and the Hadith many times, for I could not believe what I was reading!! (and have done extensive research since). My re-reading of both texts is because I couldn’t believe someone was actually advocating what Mohammed was. I am a reasonably intelligent individual, and I don’t need any “translation” of what I can read and understand myself. Do you also know that the Koran was written in chronological sections, and is not currently presented that way, and that later Koranic pronouncements supersede earlier versions? It is not presented chronologically in the present version, so unless you know what goes where, you don’t know what supersedes what. In the beginning, only the peaceful parts were written. Later, violence against infidels was written, but since it’s not in chronological order, it’s hard to tell what was said when.
      You say not to get misinterpretations off of “anti-Islamic” websites on the internet, which I have not, but then you turn around and say to go to an Islamic internet site to get further educated. Well, what a hypocrite! Do you actually think a pro-Islamic website is going to admit their true motives? It is YOU, my friend, who needs to read the Koran. I’m not going to be specific with verses here. There is no need to. If you simply read for yourself about what should be done about and to “infidels” there can be no mistake–it’s not taken out of context in the least. It is very specifically spelled out-if you read it IN context. As I previously stated, I have no problem with peace-loving Muslims–it is the leadership who knows exactly what’s going on, and is only deceiving the masses for opportunistic propaganda. Look up and read the book “Because They Hate” written by a woman who was an adolescent in Lebanon during the civil war there in the 70’s, (sorry, forgot her name) and then come back and tell me Muslims don’t have worldwide conquest on their agenda!
      Oh yeah, by the way–original*

  3. hello

    Sorry for posting messages and stuff, but like I said read quran (and hadith) and ask a religious scholar or search about verses, or hadiths you are not sure on. Insha Allah you will figure things out kurt.

  4. Hello

    Not saying all muslims are angels kurt, good and bad everywhere, know what zulm is? Anyway muslims do good and bad things.
    OnIslam talks are questions asked by two people, the second one is asked by a person called “charlie darwin” guessing is is not pro islam, but read the responces to questions.

  5. kurt

    Agreed. Folks is folks, and Muslims are no different–you can find good and bad in all people. I have no quarrel with peace-loving people of ANY religious persuasion, but with the “clergy” of any such religion that advocates violence.
    Since my detractors seem to imply that I cannot think for myself and need to go to a pro-Islamic website to interpret what I can read for myself, I shall go against my above edict not to quote “scripture” and leave you with a direct quotation from the Hadith:

    In Tabari 9:69, Muhammed says “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us.”

    I don’t think I need some Islamic scholar on a pro-Islamic website to explain this to me. There it is in plain language. True, this is a translation from the Arabic, but I challenge anyone to interpret this particular verse as anything other than what it says.

  6. hello

    thing about the hadiths Kurt is you get good sourced ones and not so sourced ones. But one thing is the quran the main holy book tells is “To fight in the way THOSE who fight us, but do not transgress the limits, because Allah liketh NOT the transgressors” we are ordered to fight the unbeliever yes when they attack us first. 60:8 tells us that we are not forbidden from being rightous towards those who do not fight us because of religion and exspell us from our homes, and that we can act justly to them. Oh when the aggressors stop attacking us we must incline towards peace, pretty much we have to defend. Islam encourages that we act justly to non muslims.

    P.S sorry about last post they removed the links for some reason think moderators thought I was advertising

    • kurt

      I don’t know what you mean by “sourced,” but “sourced” or “unsourced” it says what it says. Are you denying Muhammed said this? I don’t have any doubt he did.
      I’m not going to argue with you anymore. I believe what I believe, and you believe what you believe, and neither one of us is going to convince the other otherwise. My original opinion remains: The Koran and the Hadith specifically advocates violence against infidels, and there is nothing you can say or do that will change that. READ IT FOR YOURSELF. IT’S RIGHT THERE IN BLACK AND WHITE, AND SIMPLE–NO TRANSLATION NEEDED. “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter for us.” Of course something so specific and horrible is going to cause you to claim it “unsourced”, or “he didn’t mean it that way,” or some other such nonsense to excuse the statement. IT SAYS WHAT IT SAYS IN BLACK AND WHITE!!! you can’t “explain” it away!

  7. Hello

    Your religion is your religion is yours and mien is mine, salam alaykom, i wont bug you anymore.

  8. Eht

    As kurt above statement of Quran and Hadith, I don’t think so ur statement is true….

    Kurt had not he knowledge….and even he has not the knowlege of spelling of Quran…..Not koran….it’s Quran

    Don’t mind my Dear

    • kurt

      If you’re going to be a grammar Nazi, at least be correct. According to the dictionary, either spelling is acceptable.
      Your grammar could use some work, too.

  9. H. Armstrong

    Why all this hatred towards one religion?
    Jews and Christians also have some “Twisted” ideas in their holy books too, or it’s just something personal?

    If Islam have agendas to conquest the world as you stated, how comes the Christians rules the world? just look at the British Empire, the empire on which the sun never sets, Are they Muslims?

    Muslims are weak and can’t do anything useful, if Islam have an idea to rule the world, then they obviously failed.

    • kurt

      Who said anything about “hatred?” I don’t hate anybody.
      Perhaps you should learn the difference between hatred and research.
      It is not I who hates.
      It is not I who have agendas to conquer the world. I simply stated what Islam believes via the Koran and Hadith based on research I have done. If it’s hatred your looking for, research the subject for yourself and you will see the hatred for the infidel.
      Why Christians rule the world? That’s just the way it is right now. Look up what the world’s fastest growing religion is.
      It’s been a long time since “the sun never set on the British Empire,” if you read your history. That simply meant that there was no place on earth at any one time where the sun was not shining on some British territory. That is no longer true.
      You state that “Muslims are weak and can’t do anything useful” then accuse ME of being the one that hates! HYPOCRITE! I don’t even believe that myself!

  10. Hello

    Hi, not gonna start a debade, but H armstong have you ever heard of the Islamic golden age? Search it if you want. You might find it interesting. Contributed a lot ot technology. You saddly don’t hear about it much these days, even I should study it a bit more.

  11. Hello

    Well according to this wiki link they perserved a lot of literal texts (translating them into Arabic), medacine, sciences. I am not a historian sure people might disagree.

    to be honest not sure what they contributed to technology.

  12. KAMAL

    The holly Quran mentioned the big bang theory and mentioned the water as most important element for the beginning of life as well as Sustaining life(” أولم ير الذين كفروا أن السماوات والأرض كانتا رتقا ففتقناهما وجعلنا من الماء كل شيء حي أفلا يؤمنون ” )
    The holly Quran also mentioned how mountines and mountin chaines are extremely important to stablize the surface of the earth by acting as pegs
    وجعلنا في الأرض رواسي أن تميد بهم وجعلنا فيها فجاجا سبلا لعلهم يهتدون )

    The stabilization of lithospheric plates by mountains is effected by their sinking deeply into the zone of weakness of the Earth (the asthenosphere) as wooden pegs sink into the ground to stabilize the corners of a tent. Such a process of stabilization cannot take place without the presence of a viscous, plastic material under the outer rocky cover of the Earth, into which the mountains “roots” can float. In as much as the ship casts its anchor into the anchorage of a port to avoid the dangers of rolling and swaying by winds and waves, the Glorious Quran uses the term “Rawasi” (=moorings or firm anchors) to describe mountains. Such firm anchors do not only stabilize the lithospheric plates, but also the whole planet in its spinning around its own axis (nutation, recession, etc.). Furthermore, The role of mountains as stabilizers for the Earth’s crust can be clearly seen in their very deep roots, and can be justified by the fact that the motions of the lithospheric plates only come to halt when a continent collides with another, producing a collisional type mountain, which is believed to be the last phase in mountain-building. Without mountains, the movement of lithospheric plates would have been much faster and their collision more drastic. Even though mountains do act as retarders for the plate movements, they should not be understood to be an independent force or factor, because they are the very product of this motion in the first place.
    The following verses from Quran illustrats the movments of the earth crust and the mountins.

    وَتَرَى الْجِبَالَ تَحْسَبُهَا جَامِدَةً وَهِيَ
    تَمُرُّ مَرَّ السَّحَابِ صُنْعَ اللَّهِ الَّذِي أَتْقَنَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ إِنَّهُ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَفْعَلُونَ)

    This motion of the mountains is caused by the movement of the Earth’s crust that they are located on. The Earth’s crust ‘floats’ over the mantle layer, which is denser. It was at the beginning of the 20th century when, for the first time in history, a German scientist by the name of Alfred Wegener proposed that the continents of the earth had been attached together when it first formed, but then drifted in different directions, and thus separated as they moved away from each other.

    The holly Quran mentioned the seven layers of the atmosphere.The Earth has all the attributes that are needed for life. One of them is the atmosphere, which serves as a shield protecting living things. Today, it is an established fact that the atmosphere is made up of different layers lying on top of one another. Just as it is described in the Qur’an, the atmosphere is made up of exactly seven layers. This is certainly one of the miracles of the Quran.
    فَقَضَاهُنَّ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ فِي يَوْمَيْنِ وَأَوْحَى فِي كُلِّ سَمَاء أَمْرَهَا وَزَيَّنَّا السَّمَاء الدُّنْيَا بِمَصَابِيحَ وَحِفْظًا ذَلِكَ تَقْدِيرُ الْعَزِيزِ الْعَلِيمِ
    The layers are 1. Troposphere
    2. Stratosphere
    3. Ozonosphere
    4. Mesosphere
    5. Thermosphere
    6. Ionosphere
    7. Exosphere

    These just a few examples and there are more.
    Finally, I would like to provide some facts about the status of women and their achievements in muslim countries.
    Muslims and muslim countries have elected women as leaders. For example Turkey had Ms. Tansu Penbe Çiller as Prime Minister (1993-1996) , In Pakistan Ms. Benazir Bhutto was elected as Prime Minister (1988-1990 and again 1993-1996). Bangladesh which is one of the most populous muslim country, women were elected repeatedly to lead the nation; Ms. Khaleda Zia was thier Prime Minister (1991-1996 and again 2001-2006) and Ms.Sheikh Hasina was the Prime Minister (1996-2001) and she is the present Prime Minster since she was elected again on 2009 (2009-Present) and Indonesia which is the most populous muslim nation in the world chose a women as a president by electing Ms. Megawati Sukarnoputri (2001-2004).

  13. Naya

    Dear All,
    Islam foundation is not before 1400 years. It is started from the Adam (Peace be upon him).
    All prophets are Muslims, as they submit their will to Almighty.
    I hope,debate between any one of the above are followers of any religion. If anyone disobeys the any commandments of Almighty which was revealed on his Prophets. Then Truly he is looser.
