Memorize Qu'ran, Woman Tells Suitor
Arab News ^ | November 22, 2005 | Staff

Posted on 11/22/2005 6:42:20 PM PST by Loyalist

JEDDAH, 22 November 2005 — A woman demanded from a man who asked her hand in marriage to memorize the holy Qur’an as a condition of accepting to marry him, Al-Watan reported. The 21-year-old woman said that she is not interested in money as much as she is interested in a good religious husband. The woman said that she would hold a test in which she will ask them to recite the Qur’an without a mistake.

"The woman said that she would hold a test in which she will ask them to recite the Qur’an without a mistake."

I wonder how long that takes - I wonder if it's as long as the bible?

There are people who study the bible their whole lives and couldn't recite it without a mistake - maybe she doesn't want to get married.

That lady is bossy wife material.

Mind you, she has a point, and I am sure that some champion reciter will end up in a happy union. Men with bossy wives often seem quite happy, once they have made the adjustment.

I wonder if he'll have a sh*t-eating grin when he recites this part:

[4.34] Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.

Memorization, of whatever you like, is well and good and not enough.

My guess is that she has experienced too many Arabic men and would rather remain single than live with a man who may one day cut off her head for "dishonoring" him.

And exactly who would want to marry a person that demanded a series of tests that they would have to pass in order to have their love. He is probably to young to realize that this is just the first in many expectations he will no doubt live up to. She will most likely keep moving the goal posts over and over and never be content. Happens in all cultures very destructive to a persons identity.

If he memorizes and then recites a certain passage three times, he is home free.

The Prophet (Pig^&*T be upon him) said that passage is a third part, and to read or recite it three times is to say or read the entire Koran.

Maybe he should be relieved!

Exactly. I am beginning to think this woman is smarter than might be thought. Think about it. If you were an educated, modern woman would you want to marry a fundamentalist Muslim? She might be employing the only safe and acceptable tactic for not marrying some jerk whom a family member had promised her to marry when she was only three.
