How Liberal Muslims Selectively Cite the “No Compulsion” Verse

By Daniel Haqiqatjou -October 10, 2022

Do you notice a pattern here?

Islam says hijab is mandatory. Liberal Muslims say –> There is no compulsion in religion!!!

Islam allows men to marry multiple wives. Liberal Muslims say –> Force men to only marry one!!!

Islam requires women to have guardians –> There is no compulsion in religion!!!

Islam requires husbands to pay mahr (Gift for Brides) –> Force husbands to pay it!!!

Islam prohibits Muslim women marrying non-Muslim men –> There is no compulsion in religion!!!

Islam allows husbands to issue triple talaq (divorce) –> Force husbands to only issue one!!!

Islam gives husbands a right to intimacy –> There is no compulsion in religion!!!

Islam gives men larger share of inheritance (on average) –> Force Muslim men to get equal inheritance as women!!!

Islam prohibits elective abortions –> There is no compulsion in religion!!!

Islam gives husbands greater authority in marriage –> Force husbands to have equal authority as wives!!!

Islam requires mothers to nurse and care for young children –> There is no compulsion in religion!!!

Islam requires husbands to financially support their wives and children –> Force men to pay up!!!

Islam requires separation of the genders in public spaces –> There is no compulsion in religion!!!

Islam allows men to consider sexual history before marrying someone –> Force men to ignore sexual history!!!

Shameless

Allah says in the Quran 2:256:

لَآ إِكْرَاهَ فِى ٱلدِّينِ ۖ قَد تَّبَيَّنَ ٱلرُّشْدُ مِنَ ٱلْغَىِّ ۚ فَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِٱلطَّـٰغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِنۢ بِٱللَّهِ فَقَدِ ٱسْتَمْسَكَ بِٱلْعُرْوَةِ ٱلْوُثْقَىٰ لَا ٱنفِصَامَ لَهَا ۗ وَٱللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become distinct from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in ṭāghūt1 and believes in Allāh has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allāh is Hearing and Knowing.

The liberal and feminist “Muslims” will apply this verse wherever Islamic teachings conflict with liberalism and feminism. So, whenever Islam obligates women to perform a duty or have some responsibility or to be unequal to men in any way, then suddenly, “There is no compulsion in religion!” The verse is used to lift the responsibility from women.

But wherever Islam requires something of men in favor of women, then these hypocrites become staunch Islamists and demand the state use brutal executive force to ensure women get their full measure at the expense of men. The “No Compulsion” verse they love to cite is conveniently forgotten.

How can anyone take these liberal Muslims and their Unfit Imam leaders seriously?
