Moreover, when we bring up a point, Kim quotes the Muslim scholars from "Islam: Q&A" and considers the matter settled. But she ignores these same scholars when they refute her claims. Kim doesn't even pretend to be consistent!
Let's consider a simple example. According to Kim's scholars, a woman may refuse to have sex with her husband in certain situations. The scholars write:
If she has an excuse – such as being sick, or menstruating, or bleeding following childbirth (nifaas), or observing an obligatory fast, then she is not cursed, rather her husband who calls her to bed is sinning if he insists on calling her, or forces her when he knows of her situation.
According to Kim, however, a woman may deny sex to her husband for many other reasons, such as being tired, being hungry, etc. She even challenges us to refute her so called "reasons" for refusing sex. She writes:
Marriage in Islam of course is supposed to be meaningful.
But there are going to be disobedient wives, and Islam has a way for dealing with them. Instead of allowing the Arab men use their culture to beat them to death or worse, there is a fair method in Islam and this applies to the times when the wife refuses to have sex with her husband for NO reason whatsoever.
And the reasons I listed in my other comment are valid ones. Prove me wrong??
So she wants me to prove that her "reasons" are not justified, according to Islam. Now watch Kim's inconsistency. Remember that whenever Kim is challenged, she quotes "Islam: Q&A" as a refutation. Let me quote these same scholars to refute her. Kim's scholars write:
The woman does not have the right to refuse her husband, rather she must respond to his request every time he calls her, so long as that will not harm her or keep her from doing an obligatory duty.
Hence, a woman may only refuse sex if (1) having sex will harm her, or (2) having sex will keep her from performing an obligatory duty. If a woman is tired, will having sex harm her? No. Will having sex keep a tired woman from an obligatory duty? No. Then being tired does not justify ignoring a husband's demand for sex.
How about hunger? Will having sex harm a hungry woman? No. Will having sex keep a hungry woman from an obligatory duty? No. Then being hungry does not justify ignoring a husband's demand for sex.
Now is Kim going to admit that she was wrong when she gave us "reasons for refusing sex" that are supposedly acceptable in Islam? Of course not. She'll simply ignore the fatwas of her scholars, then quote those same scholars to us when it's convenient for her!
Have we ever met a consistent Muslim? Never.
