Why are so many Women converting toIslam?
According to "The Plain Truth", February 1984, in its 50 Year Anniversary Issue,quoting from the "World Almanac and Book of Facts 1935" and "Reader's DigestAlmanac and Yearbook 1983", between 1934 and 1984.
Christianity increased 47%
 
World Population increased 136%
Islam increased 235%
 
100,000 people per year in America alone, are converting to Islam. For every 1male convert to Islam, 4 females convert to Islam.
They're discovering the FACTS and not basing their decisions on biasedmedia. They realise they deserve to know the complete unadulteratedtruth.
 
1. The Bible Convicts Women as the original Sinners (ie. Eve picking from theforbidden tree){Genesis 2:4-3:24}.
 
The Koran Clarifies it was Adam Not Eve {Koran 7:19-25}
 
2. The Bible says "The Birth of a Daughter is a loss" {Ecclesiasticus 22:3}.
 
The Koran says both are an Equal Blessing {Koran 42:49}
 
3. The Bible forbids women from speaking in church {I Corinthians 14:34-35}.
 
The Koran says women can argue with the Prophet {58:1}
 
4. In the Bible, divorced Women are Labeled as an Adulteress, not men {Matthew5:31-32}
 
The Koran does Not have Biblical double standards{Koran 30:21}
 
5. In The Bible, widows and sisters do not inherit Any property or wealth, onlymen do {Numbers 27:1-11}
 
The Koran abolished this male greed {Koran 4:22} and God protects all.
 
6. The Bible Allows Multiple Wives {I Kings 11:3}
 
In The Koran, God limits the number to 4 only under certain situations (with thewife's permission)and prefers you marry only one wife {Koran 4:3} The Koran
 
gives the woman the right to choose who to marry.
 
7. "If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapesher and they are discovered, he shall pay the girl's father fifty shekels of silver.He must marry the girl, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as longas he lives" {Deuteronomy 22:28-30}
 
One must ask a simple question here, who is really punished, the man who rapedthe woman or the woman who was raped? According to the Bible, you have tospend the rest of your life with the man who raped you.
 
The Prophet Muhammad Says {Volume 9, Book 86, Number 101} Narrated byAisha:"It is essential to have the consent of a virgin (for the marriage)".
 
Would the Non-Muslim men reading this prefer the Women they know to beChristian or Muslim?
 
8. The Bible also asks women to wear veils as in Islam {I Corinthians 11:3-10}
 
9. Women were given rights to Vote less than a 100 years ago in the (US), whilethe Koran gave women voting rights almost 1,500 years ago.

Why British Women are turning to Islam
 
THE SPREAD OF A WORLD CREED
The Times - Tuesday, 9th November 1993 - Home-news PageLucy Berrington finds the Muslim Faith is winning Western admirersdespite hostile media coverage
Unprecedented numbers of British people, nearly all of them women, areconverting to Islam at a time of deep divisions within the Anglican and Catholicchurches.
 
The rate of conversions has prompted predictions that Islam will rapidly becomean important religious force in this country. "Within the next 20 years the numberof British converts will equal or overtake the immigrant Muslim community that
 
brought the faith here", says Rose Kendrick, a religious education teacher at aHull comprehensive and the author of a textbook guide to the Koran. She says:"Islam is as much a world faith as is Roman Catholicism. No one nationalityclaims it as its own". Islam is also spreading fast on the continent and in America.The surge in conversions to Islam has taken place despite the negative image of the faith in the Western press. Indeed, the pace of conversions has acceleratedsince publicity over the Salman Rushdie affair, the Gulf War and the plight of theMuslims in Bosnia. It is even more ironic that most British converts should bewomen, given the widespread view in the west that Islam treats women poorly.In the United States, women converts outnumber men by four to one, and inBritain make up the bulk of the estimated 10, 000 to 20, 000 converts, formingpart of a Muslim community of 1 to 1.5 million. Many of Britains "New Muslims"are from middle-class backgrounds. They include Matthew Wilkinson, a formerhead boy of Eton who went on to Cambridge, and a son and daughter of LordJustice Scott, the judge heading the arms-to-Iraq enquiry.
 
A small scale survey by the Islamic Foundation in Leicester suggests that mostconverts are aged 30 to 50. Younger muslims point to many conversions amongstudents and highlight the intellectual thrust of Islam. "Muhammad" said, "Thelight of Islam will rise in the West" and I think that is what is happening in ourday" says Aliya Haeri, an American-born psychologist who converted 15 yearsago. She is a consultant to the Zahra Trust, a charity publishing spiritual literatureand is one of Britain's prominent Islamic speakers. She adds: "Western convertsare coming to Islam with fresh eyes, without all the habits of the East, avoidingmuch of what is culturally wrong. The purest tradition is finding itself strongest inthe West."
 
Some say the conversions are prompted by the rise of comparative religiouseducation. The British media, offering what Muslims describe as a relentless badpress on all things Islamic, is also said to have helped. Westerners despairing of their own society - rising in crime, family breakdown, drugs and alcoholism - havecome to admire the discipline and security of Islam. Many converts are formerChristians disillusioned by the uncertainty of the church and unhappy with theconcept of the Trinity and deification of Jesus.
 
Quest of the Convert - Why Change?
Other converts describe a search for a religious identity. Many had previouslybeen practising Christians but found intellectual satisfaction in Islam. "I was atheology student and it was the academic argument that led to my conversion."Rose Kendrick, a religious education teacher and author, said she objected to theconcept of the original sin: "Under Islam, the sins of the fathers aren't visited onthe sons. The idea that God is not always forgiving is blasphemous to Muslims.
 
Maimuna, 39, was raised as a High Anglican and confirmed at 15 at the peak of her religious devotion. "I was entranced by the ritual of the High Church andthought about taking the veil." Her crisis came when a prayer was not answered.She slammed the door on visiting vicars but travelled to convents for discussionswith nuns. "My belief came back stronger, but not for the Church, the institutionor the dogma." She researched every Christian denomination, plus Judaism,Buddhism and Krishna Consciousness, before turning to Islam.
 
Many converts from Christianity reject the ecclesiastical heirarchy emphasisingMuslims' direct relationship with God. They sense a lack of leadership in theChurch of England and are suspicious of its apparent flexibility. "Muslims don't
