Quran regularly forgets the grandparents, why?

As funny as these ridiculous verses are, for the none eagle eye among you, you may have missed yet again another odd thing – Muhammad does not mention the grandparents!! This is the same issue we have with verse 4:23.

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 a 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!! Below is the reference. 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 evidence that neither his paternal or maternal grandparents had any relationship with him. Why is this relevant? When one does not have that strong relationship with his grandparents, you can see why the verse that went as far as naming every possible female relative and 24:61 that named every possible residence, would forget grandmother/parents. And what is further evidence this is Muhammad talking from his point of view – both verses talk to men about who they can marry/eat at. Wouldn’t a God just simply say your mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, nephews and nieces!! Quran written by a man for men!
Incidentally, next time some Mu’min asks your morality now that you left Islam “Go sleep with your mother, sister or aunt…”
Tell them:
“If you are referring to Quran 4:23 that forbids sleeping with your mother, sister, aunts…, What stops you sleeping with your grandmother? 😅

Due to popular demands, I have decided to set up an online blog with all the memes you will need to source. The memes are intended to be fun, touches of humour, and informative. Every year many people like you and me, leave Islam. The US reports that 23% of American born Muslims have left Islam, 18% of British Muslims have left Islam, BBC reported in 2019 that 18% of Arabs see themselves are irreligious with the rate as high as 30% among the youth. This page is intended mainly to translate the many atheist Arabic memes that are shared in the Arabic social media such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Islamophobic content will not be tolerated! Content that challenges the teachings of the Quran, Hadith, Serat (story) of Mohammad, and Islamic teachings are all welcomed.
