The Grotesque Immorality of Mainstream Islamic Ethics (Part 4)

I am a Canadian ex-Muslim. In Part 4 of this series of articles I will address the impermissibility of common child adoption in Islamic theology.

Parts 1, 2 and 3 of series of articles can be found here and here and here.

The laudable tradition of child adoption as commonly practiced in non-Islamic societies is sadly considered to be an impermissible act in Islamic societies ruled by Sharia. And of course, Islamic law is based studiously upon Islam’s canonical texts (the Qur’an, hadith and sira).

The forbiddance of common child adaption in Islamic theology and law is based upon, in part, the following Qur’anic passage:

33:4: Allah has not made for a man two hearts in his interior. And He has not made your wives whom you declare unlawful your mothers. And he has not made your adopted sons your [true] sons. That is [merely] your saying by your mouths, but Allah says the truth, and He guides to the [right] way.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
