[quote=fatuma]In Islam men taking care of women is like theis: you know the image of the Roman Emperor who is lying back while the grape girl is feeding him? Well in Islam the woman is the emperor and the man is the grape girl. When the father dies, the man has to be a ‘grape girl’ for his mother, unmarried sisters, wife, widowed/unmarried aunts, and grandmother…any woman who he is mahran to that needs to be taken care of. this is why he gets most of the inheritances money, the daughter also gets an inheritance but she gets to keep hers all to herself and when she gets a job, that all her money is hes too while the man’s money belongs too all of them. It is grounds for divorce for a woman if her husband is not keeping her in the style she is accustomed too. You might say this is wrong but we believe that on the Day of Judgment God will ask these men what they did for their female relatives because this is a commandment. You could say this is sexists: towards the men.
Haha its sad (for me, as a man) but its true.
The woman gets to keep her dowry for herself, she keeps her inheritance for herself, she keeps her job money for herself, while the man pays for her and the kids (unless the woman is nice and helps out, but she doesnt have to) and any other women that are alone.
this is one of the reasons that the majority of converts to Islam are women.
