Refuting Christian Prince's Perverted Mind
Some disgusting and hateful paltalk debater by the name of Christian Prince is going around the chat rooms spreading lies about Islam. This man is really despicable. Most Christians do not even consider him a true sincere Christian. Because true Christians should at least have some manners.
Anyways, he is spreading a lie about the following verse in the Quran.
And if ye fear that ye will not deal fairly by the orphans, marry (fainkihoo) of the women, who seem good to you, two or three or four; and if ye fear that ye cannot do justice (to so many) then one (only) or (the captives) that your right hands possess. Thus it is more likely that ye will not do injustice.
The underlined word is fainkihoo, which means "get married to". The root word is nikah, which means marriage as you can see.
However, what perverted Christian Prince says is that the word means to "have sex" in an offensive term (the F word), therefore the Quran uses abusive language. Where on earth Christian Prince got this from is beyond me. The verse is clearly talking about marrying the person.
If you fear that you will not act justly, [that] you will [not] be equitable, towards the orphans, and are thus distressed in this matter, then also fear lest you be unjust towards women when you marry them; marry such (ma means man) women as seem good to you, two or three or four, that is, [each man may marry] two, or three, or four, but do not exceed this; but if you fear you will not be equitable, towards them in terms of [their] expenses and [individual] share; then, marry, only one, or, restrict yourself to, what your right hands own, of slavegirls, since these do not have the same rights as wives; thus, by that marrying of only four, or only one, or resorting to slavegirls, it is likelier, it is nearer [in outcome], that you will not be unjust, [that] you will [not] be inequitable. (Tafsir Jalalayn, Source)
(And if ye fear that ye will not deal fairly by the orphans) and if you fear that you will not preserve orphans' wealth, you should also fear not dealing fairly with women in relation to providing sustenance and apportionment. This was because they used to marry as many women as they liked, as many as nine or ten. Qays Ibn al-Harth for example had eight wives. Allah forbade them from doing so and prohibited them from marrying more than four wives, saying: (marry of the women, who seem good to you) marry that which Allah has made lawful for you, (two or three or four) marry one, two, three or four but do not marry more than four wives; (and if ye fear that ye cannot do justice) to four wives in relation to apportionment and providing sustenance (then one (only)) then marry only one free woman (or that your right hands possess) of captives, and in that case you do not owe them any apportionment, and they need not observe any waiting period. (Thus it) marrying just one woman (is more likely that ye will not do injustice) that you will not incline to some at the expense of others or that you transgress regarding the provision of sustenance and apportionment to four wives. (Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ?Abbâs, Source)
Ironically this man does not have a problem with the language of his own Bible. What a hypocrite indeed. I advise Muslims to stay away from him. He is not a sincere Christian. He gives Christians a bad name. If you get to know him I am afraid that you would start to stereotype and think that all Christians are like him. On the contrary, there are many kind and loving Christians out there. Lets get to know these people and have dialogues with them. You cannot get through to people like Christian Prince.
