The Burka

A friend is forever banging on about burkas being the choice of the wearer.  I say it’s a choice between wearing a sack or being shunned or punished.  This is a choice that men don’t have to make.  Doesn’t sound like much of a choice to me.

Confirmation Bias works in Islam too.

Surah Ar-Rahman (55):

37. When the sky is torn apart, so it is (like) a red rose, like ointment

38. Then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny?

Humans wander around looking at things saying: “That looks like a rose” or similar.
OK, so it looks like a rose.  What about the rest of the sentence. Was the sky torn apart?
This didn’t happen in the sky, this happened in space. In what way is it like ointment.
