The Sultan Ahmed Mosque is an historic mosque in Istanbul. This is a beautiful mosque that I visited some years ago.

This is a copied page from Skeptics Annotated Bible, and it is quoting and commenting on the Quran.  The author(s) have added a recent investigation into the ancient word “virgins,” that could also be used to refer to ‘grapes or raisins.’  It was customary to give grapes or raisins as an act of hospitality when entering a home.   There is heated controversy as to whether the word “virgin” when used in reference to a reward in heaven, might not refer to grapes or raisins.   Militants or devout Muslims may not be rewarded with “virgins” in paradise.   Personally, I have always thought that the after death paradise would be a spiritual world, and therefore virgins would not be the human type.   Paula.     Oh, and any comments added to the Quaran quotes are not mine, but belong to the site mentioned above.  It is up to readers to add their own interpretations.

Please note that the authors of the quotes below have selected certain quotes, which are, nevertheless, in the Quaram.  However, there may be more ‘balanced’ and more ‘wholesome’ Quaran quotes with regard to sexuality.   Women in the days of the Prophet Mohammed had certain rights with regard marriage.  It was the future wife of Mohammed (his employer) who asked him to marry her.  It is also noted that the Prophet gave many privileges and rights to women, including the holding of property, the right to divorce their husbands, and the right to remain single.   Further study is always advised to get a balanced picture, but these quotes are in the Quaran.  Paula.
