IsLAM looks upon women with an unfriendly and suspicious eye. It pronounces their general depravity to be much greater than that of men. According to Muhammadan tradition the Prophet said: "I have not left any calamity more hurtful to man than woman. . . . 0 assembly of women, give alms, although it be of your gold and silver ornaments ; for verily you are mostly of hell on the day of resurrection." 1 And women are stupid and ignorant as well as wicked.
