Tamara MC describes how an Arizona “Islamic cult” used “harrowing abuse” to subjugate women until they “accepted” that their bodies did not belong to them. The fact is that Islamic texts sanction the abuse of women, unlike those of any other religion. Tamara grew up “practicing Sufism – an Islamic sect that contains a series of intense rules and regulations designed to control almost every aspect of members’ lives.” These words validate such treatment in the eyes of the Muslim males or male guardians who adhere to them….
“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
“Your women are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth as you will” — Qur’an 2:223
Muhammad’s wives are even trained to get permission to go to the bathroom:
The Prophet said to his wives, “You are allowed to go out to answer the call of nature.” — Sahih Bukhari 4:149
“Woman who grew up in Islamic ‘cult’ in Arizona lifts lid on harrowing abuse she endured in sick sect – revealing how leaders ‘broke’ young women with physical punishments to prove their bodies ‘didn’t belong to them,’” by Lillian Gissen, Daily Mail, September 8, 2023:
A woman who was raised in an extremist religious ‘cult’ has lifted a lid on the harrowing ‘abuse’ that she endured as a child.
Tamara MC, 50, revealed that she was taught she ‘wasn’t worthy of cleanliness,’ and forced to live in ‘filth’ and ‘reek of mildew’ because there was only one washer and no dryer for more than 100 people to share.
She grew up in Tucson, Arizona, practicing Sufism – an Islamic sect that contains a series of intense rules and regulations designed to control almost every aspect of members’ lives.
According to Tamara, who left the group in her 20s and is now an author, activist, and motivational speaker based in New York City, the leaders used fear and manipulation tactics to teach women and children ‘blind obedience to authority’ – setting them up ‘for a lifetime of abuse.’
She laid bare the trauma she was put through as a child in a recent essay for Newsweek – while opening up about how even after she ultimately fled the group it took years for her to undo the long-lasting effects of her ‘destructive, neglectful, and chaotic upbringing.’,,,,,,
