    quran.com/4/124-125:
    "And whoever does righteous deeds, whether male or female, while being a believer - those will enter Paradise and will not be wronged, [even as much as] the speck on a date seed.
    And who is better in religion than one who submits himself to Allah while being a doer of good and follows the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth? And Allah took Abraham as an intimate friend"

    Westernized Muslimas have an advantage over the majority of Muslimas in Muslim countries in that they are secular, to a great extent, and are not strict adherents to the tenets of Islam that have been holding the rest of the Muslim world behind, such as hatred for non-Muslims and an inability to transition out of the Middle Ages.

    In contrast, fully 50% of all Arab women, most of whom are Muslimas, are illiterate and languishing in abject poverty.

    The best antidote for the failure of Islam is Westernization of the cult.
