I visited the US as a guest of the USIS in September 1995. During this visit I had an appointment with Professor Barbara Stowasser, director of the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University. She offered me her book on women in the Quran, Hadith and Tradition. I found it a good chance to relay to her two pictures of how the Prophet (PBUH)dealt with women. The First: The Prophet (pbuh) used to kiss his wives during the day of Ramadhan (or while fasting)- and he was able to contain himself better than other men. My comment was that this kiss is a sign of love, affection, and high sentiments. However, the kisses your men give women on the streets are only to satisfy their instincts and desires or lust.
The other picture is the first thing the Prophet(pbuh) would do when he enters his house is to brush his teeth, he wants to be in the best of mouth smell for his family. In the West men would only brush their teeth when waking up in the morning, or after eating or when they have a date. Who really cares more about women? Who does respect women more?
Stowasser's only reply was to ask my companion (escort): Is this guy really from Saudi Arabia or Madina?
