Woman In The bible, By Shaykh ‘Abdur-Rahmaan Dimashki

Jesus with his mother

[John. 2:4] He said to Mary, “Woman, what have I to do with you.” (I only quote here what I believe not because I believe that Jesus the great prophet of God was more polite and kind to his mother than what the Bible shows.)

Menses in the bible

[Levi. 15:19] When a woman has a discharge of blood which in her regular discharge from her body, she shall be apart seven days. And WHOSOEVER TOUCHES HER SHALL BE UNCLEAN until the evening. And every thing that she lies upon in her SEPARATION shall be unclean. Every thing also that SHE SITS UPON SHALL BE UNCLEAN. And whosoever touches her bed shall wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening. And whosoever touches anything THAT SHE SAT UPON SHALL WASH HIS CLOTHES, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.

And if it be on her bed, or any thing whereon she sits when he touches it: he SHALL BE UNCLEAN UNTIL THE EVENING. And if any man lie with her at all, and her flowers be upon him: he shall be unclean seven days, and all the bed WHEREON SHE LIES SHALL BE UNCLEAN.

And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days out of the time of her separation, or if it run beyond the time of her SEPARATION: all the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as the days of her SEPARATION, she shall be unclean.

Every bed whereon she lies all the days of her issue shall be unto her as the bed of her SEPARATION, and whatsoever she sits upon shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her SEPARATION.

And WHOSOEVER TOUCHES THOSE THINGS SHALL BE UNCLEAN and shall wash his clothes and bathes himself in water, and he BE UNCLEAN UNTIL THE EVENING. But if she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself seven days, and after that she shall be clean. And on the eighth day she shall take unto her two turtles or two young pigeons, and bring them unto the priest to the door of the meeting tent.

The reason behind pains of delivery

[Gen 3:16] God said to Eve when she tempted Adam, “I will greatly multiply your pain in childbearing, in pain you shall bring forth children, yet your desire shall be for your husband and he shall rule over you.

Postpartum in the bible

[Levi. 12:2] If a woman conceives, and bears a MALE CHILD, then she shall be unclean seven days.. But if she bears a FEMALE CHILD then she shall be unclean two weeks.

After an intercourse

[Levi. 15:16] If a man has an emission of semen, he shall bathe his whole body in water, and be unclean until the evening. Every garment and every skin on which the semen comes shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the evening.


[Levi. 15:18] If a man lies with a woman and has an emission of semen both of them shall bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the evening.

Woman’s veil in the bible (not only in Islam)

[1 Corin. 11:5] But any woman who prays and prophecies with her head unveiled dishonours her head – it is the same as if her head were shaven, for if a woman will not veil herself then she should cut off her hair. But if it is disgraceful for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her wear a veil. JUDGE FOR YOURSELVES; is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?

(It seems that Christians are unaware of the obligation of the veil in the Bible, which made me put their verses in this book, and for those who attack the veil in Islam should notice these verses of their own Bible, and notice also this verse “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.)

Woman is not the glory of god

[1 Corin. 11:7] For a man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man, for man was not made for woman, but woman from man, neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.

Woman is evil !

[Zech. 5:7] The leaden cover was lifted, there was a woman sitting, and he (the angel) said: this is wickedness.

Hide woman’s voice !

[1 Corin. 14:34] The woman should keep silence in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says. If there is any thing they desire to know let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.

[1 Timo. 2:9] Woman should adorn themselves modestly and sensibly in seemly apparel, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly attire but by good deeds.

Marriage by force !!

[Deut. 25:5] If brothers dwell together, and one of them dies and has no son, the wife of the dead shall not be marries outside of the family to a stranger; her husband’s brother shall go into her, and take her as his wife.

What if he refuses ?

[Deut. 25:7] And if the man does not wish to take his brother’s wife then his brother’s wife shall go up to the gate of the elders, and say, “My husband’s brother refuses to perpetuate his brother’s name in Israel.. Then the elders of his city shall call him.

And if he persists.. Then his brother’s wife shall go up to him in the presence of the elders, and pull his sandal off his foot, and spit in his face; and shall answer and say: So it shall be done to the man who does not build up his brother’s house. And the name of his house shall be called in Israel THE HOUSE OF HIM THAT HAD HIS SANDAL PULLED OFF.

Doubting the last day !

[Job 14:14] If a man die, shall he live again?

[Ecdel. 11:9] But know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment.(The old Testament of the Bible does not mention the last day except for one verse. God threatened not the wicked with fire of Hell, but he takes away their land every time they disobey him, and gives it back to them when they repent, as if reward and penalty are in this life only.)

The Philistines in the bible

[Judg. 3:31] Samson went and caught three hundred foxes, and took torches; and he turned them tail to tail, and took a torch between each pair of tails. And when he had set fire to the torches, he let the foxes go into the standing of the Philistines and burned up the shocks and the standing grain, as well as the olive orchards.

[Judg. 15:15] And he found a jawbone of an ass, and put out his hand and seized it and with it HE SLEW A THOUSAND MEN. And Samson said: “With the jawbone of an ass, heaps upon heaps, WITH THE JAWBONE OF AN ASS HAVE I SLAIN A THOUSAND MEN.”

200 Foreskins : David’s dowry

[1 Sam. 18:25] When David wanted to marry the king Saul’s daughter he asked David to bring to him a hundred foreskins of the Philistines, that he may be avenged of the king’s enemies.

David arose and went, along with his men, and killed two hundred of the Philistines; and David brought their foreskins which were given in full number to the king that he might become the king’s son-in-law.

[1 Chro. 11:20] And Abi-shai lifted up his spear against three hundred Philistines, he slew them.
