Adultry is fine, But Marriage is a Crime? ! ! ! ! ! !


Attikah and other
Beautiful women
Married seven
Or eight times,
That was not counted a crime;
No body counted divorces
Or marriages for WOMEN
As well as MEN.

For nobody knows what
Exactly happen
In the first marriage day
Or during marriage time,
But that was only
Some years after
The Prophet died;
In the four Caliph’s days,
Before Muslim’s
DETERIORATION
Began to take place.

At that time people had
Elevated thinking way;
They did not care who
Sleeps with who
And Whether they
Enjoy it or not;
That was not their
BUSSINESS.

Nowadays it is hard
To convince people
To let women all
Alone with their
Past suffering,
To stop investigating
Why a divorced woman
Was a virgin with a child,
Or what kind of horror
She passed through
When unknowingly
She married a sorcerer,
Or the pain she suffered
When she discovered
That again she married
An impotent lire
Whom she thought
A dear lover.

But Women are
To be BLAMED
For refusing injustice,
They should be silent
And use a hidden way,
To stab the semi man in
The Back;
Like betraying him
And committing adultery,
Or even stealing his money,
But to turn the back
To a rotten marriage
Is still considered a crime
Because of the old Arabic
Proverb: “ The shadow of a man
Is better than a shadow of a wall”,

And I say with an extremely

LOUD VOICE:

A shadow of any wall
Is far better than
The shadow of a semi man,

A shadow of any wall
Is far better than
The shadow of a semi man,

A shadow of any wall
Is far better than
The shadow of a semi man.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
