There are many detestable teachings and practices in Islam. Sexual-slavery, raping of war-captives, murdering of infidels, looting and pillaging the property of murdered infidels, the subjugation and beating of women, the killing of apostates and the immoral reward of unlimited sex with multiple sexual partners in Paradise are just some samples of the unethical teachings of Allah in the Qur’an. However, in this article we will confine our discussion to a subject that many are unaware of. We will discuss the subject of Incest in Islam. Please read this article carefully and be prepared for some shocking truth about the dark teachings of Islam.
The truth about Islam has been one of the world’s best-kept secrets. For centuries, it has been practically impossible to raise any objection against Islam or the character of Muhammad in Muslim majority countries. Those who dare raise any objections against Islam would place his or her life in great danger. But things have changed. With the advent of the Internet, it is now virtually impossible for Muslims to keep the dark teachings of Islam a secret anymore. Many who are now enlightened about the truth of Islam are shocked at the true teachings of the Qur’an. And Muslims are unable to silence everyone.
Incest is defined as sexual relations between persons who are so closely related that their marriage is illegal or forbidden by custom. The prohibition of Incest is and has been one of the most common of all cultural taboos – both in the present and past societies. Most societies have laws regarding the prohibition of consanguineous marriages. However, it may come as shock for many to learn that in some specific instances, Incest is not a sin and is permitted in Islam.
There is a religious ruling in Islam that is taught and upheld by prominent Islamic scholars. This religious ruling reveals the approval of incest within its theology. The approval of this extremely debased practice serves as a character witness of the religion of Islam. In accordance with the most authentic teaching of Islam, a Muslim man is permitted to marry his own biological daughter and consummate the marriage with her if she was conceived illegitimately. In other words, a Muslim man is permitted to marry his own biological daughter if she is born to him out of wedlock. The foundation for Incest in Islam is laid in the following verse:
Surah 25:54: It is He Who has created man from water: then has He established relationships of lineage and marriage: for thy Lord has power over all things. (Yusuf Ali)
Al-Qurtubi is esteemed as one of Islam’s most respected scholars. In his Tafsir (Commentary) on Surah 25:54, he quotes extensively from the authoritative works of Ibn Al-Arabi (1165–1240 C.E.). Ibn Al-Arabi is recognized in the Muslim world as an eminent scholar of Islamic history. He was given the title, “Al-Shaykh al-Akbar” which means “The Greatest Master.” Al-Qurtubi stated the following in his clarification of Surah 25:54:
REGARDING THE TERMS “LINEAGE AND RELATIONSHIP THROUGH MARRIAGE”
“Lineage and relationship through marriage are two terms that describe the personal relationships that may exist between humans.”
Ibn Al-Arabi said, “Lineage is an expression referring to the mixture of fluids between a male and a female from a religious legal point of view. However, if this union (between male and female) occurs through disobedience (fornication) then the resulting child is not considered a part of a person’s true lineage. That is why a daughter born from adultery is not mentioned in Allah’s saying, ‘Prohibited to you (for marriage) are: your mothers and daughters’ (Surah 4:23) because she is not considered a daughter according to the most authentic teaching of our Islamic scholars and the most authentic teaching of our religion.
If there is no legal lineage then there is no legal relationship; for adultery does not prohibit from marriage the daughter of the mother (you committed adultery with) nor the mother of a woman (you committed adultery with). What is lawfully prohibited is not also prohibited due to sin, for Allah has bestowed lineage and relation through marriage upon His servants and greatly esteemed these relationships. Allah has also established laws identifying what is legal and what is prohibited, which are not equal to each other; therefore falsehood cannot be a part of these laws.” (Tafseer Qurtubi, Surah 25 verse 54; Translated from Al-Azhar’s official website).
Let us analyze this Islamic ruling very carefully. According “to the most authentic teaching of Islamic scholars and the most authentic teaching of Islam,” a daughter born out of wedlock is not considered as the daughter of the man. Consequently, it becomes permissible for him to marry her. The above Islamic ruling clearly states that “the resulting child is not considered a part of a person’s true lineage.” As a result, the daughter is regarded the same as any other unrelated woman. As such, Islam does not prohibit the marriage between the father and his own biological daughter who is born through fornication or adultery.
And the above Islamic ruling also adds that according to “the most authentic teaching of Islam, if there is no legal lineage then there is no legal relationship; for adultery does not prohibit from marriage the daughter of the mother you committed adultery with.” And to drive home the point, the ruling states, “What is lawfully prohibited is not also prohibited due to sin, for Allah has bestowed lineage and relation through marriage.” In others words, while Islam prohibits marriages between a man and his daughter if she is conceived in marriage, it does not prohibit marriages between a father and his daughter if she is conceived out of wedlock.
Islam’s logic is like saying that it is a crime to drive recklessly and injure someone only when you possess a valid driving license. However, if you do not possess a valid driving license, then it is not a crime to drive recklessly and injure someone. Not having a valid driving license, somehow justifies your driving recklessly and injuring someone. Likewise, not having a legal marital status (marriage license) somehow justifies your committing incest with your daughter.
How can one illegal act (adultery) make another illegal act (incest) lawful? How can the sin of adultery (zina) nullify the sin of incest and make it an acceptable act? Can two wrongs (adultery and incest) make a right? And the second wrong that is permitted in Islam with the blessing of Allah is incest between a father and his daughter. How does having a daughter from an adulterous relationship make her sexually permissible for the father when she is in every sense his very own flesh and blood? No matter how she is conceived, she still remains his biological child and should be sexually off limits to him. This is a gross violation of the divine standard of morality. Just think, will the true God permit incest intentionally?
Surah 4:23 speaks about the various types of marriage relationships that are forbidden in Islam. However, the list does not include the incestuous marriage between a father and his illegitimate daughter. Many of the great scholars of Islam acknowledge the permissibility of this incestuous marriage in the Qur’an. Al-Qurtubi confirms this point in his Commentary on Surah 4:23:
“The scholars have differed on the issue of prohibition of sexual intercourse with someone born out of adultery. The majority of knowledgeable scholars have said that if a man commits adultery with a woman, that act does not prohibit him from marrying her. Likewise, a man’s wife is not prohibited from him if he commits adultery with her mother or her daughter. It is sufficient for him to receive the punitive judgment (based on Sharia), and then he may have intercourse with his wife. If a man commits adultery with a woman then desired to marry her mother or her daughter, they are not prohibited from him because of this act.”
“Another group said (such a marriage) is prohibited for him. This opinion was reported by Amran Ibn Husain, as well as Al-Shu’bi and Atta’, Al Hassan, Sufyan Al–Thuri, Ahmad, Ishaq and those of opinion. It was reported by Malik that adultery prohibits (a man’s relationship with both) the mother and the daughter and this act (of adultery) has the same prohibitions that a legal marriage has. This is also the saying of the people of Iraq. However, the (only) correct portion of Malik’s saying is that adultery produces no regulations. For Allah, exalted and glorified, said in Surah 4:23, “Your wives’ mothers,” but did not say, “He who committed adultery with his wives’ mothers, nor his daughter whom he conceived through adultery.” This is the saying of Al-Shafi’i and Abu Thuri.”
“Abdul Malik Ibn Al-Maj-shun said such a marriage (between a man and the daughter he conceived through adultery) is permissible; which is the correct understanding of Allah’s saying in Surah 25:54, “It is He Who has created man from water: then has He established relationships of lineage and marriage,” referring to an approved legal marriage. This will be explained in Surah 25.” (Tafsiral-Qurtubi, Translated from the official website of Saudi Arabia, Ministry of Islamic Affairs)
The above Tafsir clearly states “such a marriage between a man and the daughter he conceived through adultery is permissible; which is the correct understanding of Allah’s saying in Surah 25:54.” The rationale for such strong support by prominent Islamic scholars for a sin as immoral as incest is because of the Qur’an’s insistence that lineage and relationship are established only through the process of “legal marriage.” Of course, we absolutely agree on the importance of legality in the sacred marriage union. But what is deplorable in Islam is how one serious sin nullifies another serious sin. We condemn the authorization of incest in Islam. This is unforgivable.
Another reason for the acceptance of the sin of incest in Islam is because of the deficiency of the Qur’an to provide specific details on a given subject. Note again the Commentary by Al-Qurtubi on Surah 4:23:
For Allah, exalted and glorified, said in Surah 4:23, “Your wives’ mothers,” But did not say, “He who committed adultery with his wives’ mothers, nor his daughter whom he conceived through adultery.”
Thus, it can be noted that in this instance, incest between a father and daughter is sanctioned in Islam for two reasons. Firstly, it is because Allah does not recognize the lineage of the daughter who is born out of wedlock. Secondly, it is because Allah did not forbid this form of incestuous marriage in the Qur’an. Muslims often claim that the Qur’an is fully detailed and complete. Yet, there is insufficient guidance in the Qur’an for Muslims to see the absolute evil nature of this crime. As a result, a man’s daughter becomes sexually permissible to him if he is not married to her mother at the time of her conception. Another renowned Muslim scholar also confirms this judicial ruling in Islam.
Al Fiqh ‘ala Al Madhahib Al Arba’ah by Abd al-Rahman al-Jaziri, Volume 4, p. 40:
“It is permissible for a man to marry his daughter who is born through adultery.”
“The one (girl) who is born through adultery does not become mahram (to her father) as the Shafiee say, because she is not considered as daughter since there is no inheritance between them.”
In the legal terminology of Islamic Sharia, “mahram” is an unmarriageable kin with whom sexual intercourse would be considered incestuous. However, since a daughter born from adultery is not a daughter in Islam, she “does not become mahram (forbidden) to her father.” As such, the father can marry her. Hence, the unacceptable practice of incest becomes acceptable in Islam in this instance. The forbidden becomes permissible. The vulgarity of Allah is too shocking even for some Muslims who find it hard to accept this evil teaching.
The great majority of Muslim scholars have enacted laws based on the Qur’an, which allow a man to marry his very own daughter if she is born out of wedlock – even when he is fully aware that she is his own flesh and blood. In other words he can knowingly marry his daughter because Islam “does not prohibit from marriage the daughter of the mother you committed adultery with.” Thus, Islam permits a man’s illegitimate daughter to become his legitimate wife.
Look carefully at the wordings in the Islamic ruling. It says, “It is permissible for a man to marry his daughter who is born through adultery.” Therefore, Islam recognizes the fact that she is “his daughter” and yet it permits the incestuous marriage between a father and his daughter. Can any sane person accept this insanity? Any human being with even a minuscule trace of decency will understand that although adultery is wrong, it does not change the fact that the child is still his biological daughter. If a man is not even supposed to marry his step-daughter, how much so if she happens to be his very own flesh and blood? The depth of this immoral law is immense. To say it is shocking is an understatement.
Granted, a man and a woman sinned by committing adultery. However, to now make it permissible for the father to marry his own daughter because of this illicit union is disgustingly sinful. This utterly debased act of sin which Islam sanctions goes against the very order of nature. When Islam says that the child “is not considered a daughter,” it is punishing the child for the sins of the parents. The fact that most fathers under such circumstances will not live by this Islamic ruling shows that even adulterers have a better moral standard than Allah. One might sin in a moment of weakness but Islam’s sins are deliberate and grossly wicked. Islam once again proves its satanic nature not only by sanctioning incest but by also punishing the innocent.
Blind faith is dangerous. It snatches one’s rationality and one’s sense of right and wrong. It keeps sane people in the darkness of their religious dungeon. And Islam is one of the darkest dungeons. The biggest problem with Muslims is their wishful ignorance of their religion which they blindly cherish.
Islam redefines incest just as it redefines everything else. Thus, in the Islamic framework it is not considered incestuous for a man to have sexual relations with his blood daughter who is conceived from an adulterous relationship. She is not regarded as his daughter, even though biologically this cannot be denied. Muslims are taught to see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil about the evil teachings of Islam.
As explicitly stated in the Commentary of al-Qurtubi, Allah failed to expressly state a written law prohibiting sexual relations between the father and his daughter born through the woman with whom he committed adultery. As a result, incest becomes permissible in Islam. Of course, even without a written code, our God-given moral sense of right and wrong teaches us that incest is wrong, no matter what the circumstances might be. This moral sense is universal and constitutes the natural law of mankind. And despite the profound differences among the world’s cultures, such actions as murder, theft, adultery, and incest are universally viewed as wrong.
Romans 2:14-15: For whenever people of the nations that do not have law do by nature the things of the law, these people, although not having law, are a law to themselves. They are the very ones who demonstrate the matter of the law to be written in their hearts.
Nonetheless, the true God did not leave matters to chance. Jehovah God lovingly provided clear and comprehensive directives in the Holy Bible so that his worshippers could identify and avoid the various forms of incestuous relationships. These directives served as warnings for his worshippers to avoid the sin of incest. Please read the following Law of Jehovah against incest in the Book of Leviticus. We will consider Leviticus 18:6-18:
6 “‘No man among you is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am Jehovah.
7 ‘Do not dishonor your father by having sexual relations with your mother. She is your mother; do not have relations with her.
8 ‘Do not have sexual relations with your father’s wife; that would dishonor your father.
9 ‘Do not have sexual relations with your sister, either your father’s daughter or your mother’s daughter, whether she was born in the same home or elsewhere.
10 ‘Do not have sexual relations with your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter; that would dishonor you.
11 ‘Do not have sexual relations with the daughter of your father’s wife, born to your father; she is your sister.
12 ‘Do not have sexual relations with your father’s sister; she is your father’s close relative.
13 ‘Do not have sexual relations with your mother’s sister, because she is your mother’s close relative.
14 ‘Do not dishonor your father’s brother by approaching his wife to have sexual relations; she is your aunt.
15 ‘Do not have sexual relations with your daughter-in-law. She is your son’s wife; do not have relations with her.
16 ‘Do not have sexual relations with your brother’s wife; that would dishonor your brother.
17 ‘Do not have sexual relations with both a woman and her daughter. Do not have sexual relations with either her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter; they are her close relatives. That is wickedness.
18 ‘Do not take your wife’s sister as a rival wife and have sexual relations with her while your wife is living.’”
And Jehovah concludes Leviticus Chapter 18 with strong warnings in the last two verses. Let us read this warning in Leviticus 18:29-30:
29 “In case anyone does any of all these detestable things, then the persons doing them must be cut off from among their people.
30 And you must keep your obligation to me not to carry on any of the detestable customs that have been carried on before you, that you may not make yourselves unclean by them. I am Jehovah your God.”
Jehovah God decreed this divine ruling in Leviticus 18:17:
“Do not have sexual relations with both a woman and her daughter.”
And Jehovah gives us the reason why it is forbidden to do so. He stated: “That is wickedness.” Jehovah made it vigorously clear that it is strictly forbidden for a man to have sexual relationship with both “a woman and her daughter.” If a man is forbidden to have sexual relation with the woman’s daughter (who is not even his own flesh and blood) on account of their close mother-daughter relationship, how much more so if she also happens to be his own biological daughter. Yet, this is allowed in Islam.
In the first place, according to the laws of Jehovah, sexual relationship outside the sacred marriage union is strictly forbidden. The strict obedience of this law will prevent the conceiving of any children out of the sacred union of marriage. Please read the following divine commandments in the Holy Bible:
Leviticus 18:20: “Do not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wife and defile yourself with her.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-10: Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who have sex with men, nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit God’s kingdom.
Ephesians 5:3-5: Let fornication and perversion of every sort, or greediness not even be mentioned among you. This is not appropriate behavior for God’s holy people. Neither should there be shameful conduct nor foolish talking nor obscene jesting, things which are inappropriate, but rather the giving of thanks. For you know this, recognizing it for yourselves, that no fornicator or unclean person or greedy person – which means being an idolater – has any inheritance in the kingdom of the Christ and of God.
No matter how a man begets a child, whether as a result of marriage, fornication or adultery it is still his child and therefore to engage in sexual relations with one’s own daughter is incest. This wicked teaching gives us one of the strongest reasons to reject Islam. This article exemplifies the perverted nature of Islam and shows how vastly superior the Holy Bible is in comparison to the Qur’an in terms of morality and ethics. Sexual intercourse between a father and daughter, a mother and son, or a brother and sister is universally forbidden. Yet, evidences from Islamic sources themselves prove that marriage between a father and his biological daughter is permitted in the Qur’an.
It is worthy to note that while discussing Incest with reference to marriage between parents and children and between brothers and sisters, the Encyclopedia Britannica (Micropedia, Vol. V, p. 323) stated:
“Incest is universally condemned and usually greeted with horror.”
In another article the Encyclopedia Britannica (Macropedia, Vol. 10, p. 479) stated the following:
“The nearest approach to a universal rule found in all known human cultures is the incest taboo – the prohibition of sexual intercourse between a man and his mother, sister, daughter, or other specified kin.”
All known human cultures condemn incest with Islam being the only exception. If Muslims acknowledge Allah as the true God and Muhammad as a true prophet and Islam as the true religion, then they must also accept the wicked teaching of incest that is sanctioned in Islam as acceptable conduct. Can Muslims really accept a religion that punishes an innocent child for the sins of the parents? The following Hadith reveals the shocking discrimination of Muhammad against an innocent child.
Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 29, Hadith 3952:
Narrated Abu Hurayrah: The Prophet said: The child of adultery is worst of the three.
Can you accept this insanity? How can an innocent child be judged as worst than the parents when it the parents who sinned and brought the child into this world? In other words, Muhammad is saying that the child is a greater sinner than the parents. This is Islam for you. The authorization of Incest in Islam may come as a shock for Muslims who are not familiar with the teachings of their own religion. We hope this article will serve as a wake-up call for them.
