The next time a brother or sister questions your morality now that you left Islam and says “Go sleep with your mother, sister or aunt…”
Here is the response:
“If you are referring to Quran 4:23 that forbids sleeping with your mother, sister, aunts, step mothers, neices? Guess what, it does not mention grandmothers. So would you sleep yours?”
Here is the verse 4:23
˹Also˺ forbidden to you for marriage are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your paternal and maternal aunts, your brother’s daughters, your sister’s daughters, your foster-mothers, your foster-sisters, your mothers-in-law, your stepdaughters under your guardianship if you have consummated marriage with their mothers—but if you have not, then you can marry them—nor the wives of your own sons, nor two sisters together at the same time—except what was done previously. Surely Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Note, no mention of the grandmother. Why? My analysis on this is based on Mohammad himself. Muhammad did not have relationship with his grandparents that we know about. He was abandoned really. His father supposedly died four years before he was born. As ridiculous as this sounds, I am not joking! His mother, supposedly carried him for four years before giving birth to him. She did not want to look after him. She handed him to the tribe for which his uncle looked after him. Thus, we have to evidence that neither his paternal or maternal grandparents had any relationship with him. Why is this relevant? When one does not have that strong relationships with his grandparents, you can see why the verse that went as far as naming every possible female relative, would forget grandmother. And what is further evidence this is Muhammad talking from his point of view – it talk to men about who they can marry. Wouldn’t a God just simply say: Humans are not allowed to marry their mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, nephews and nieces!! Quran written by a man for men!
