Expert on Islam, David Wood: Women in Islam (Women in the Quran and Hadith)

What is the role of women in Islam? How are women supposed to be treated according to the Quran and Hadith? How did Muhammad treat women? David Wood answers in this video.

According to the Qur'an, Muslim men can beat their wives into submission (4:34) and rape their female captives (4:24). Muhammad taught his followers that the testimony of women is unreliable because women are stupid and immoral (Qur'an 2:282, Sahih al-Bukhari 2658, Sahih Muslim 142). Muhammad's wife Aisha even said that Muslim women are treated worse than non-Muslim women (Sahih al-Bukhari 5825). Amazingly, modern Muslims claim that Islam liberates women!
