Wives & Pension: #Thread
How is my tax money being spent❓
Courtesy: #Congress

From a CA:
You might be astonished to discover what a government pension officer informed me when I asked how you offer pension to four wives of a retired Muslim government official if he die...? Image His response...!!
We observe Nomination. If he has established a ratio, then we pay in that ratio among 4 wives...!!

If he does not choose a ratio, the family pension is distributed equally among 4 WIVES. This equates to each receiving 25% of the entire Family Pension...!

An Inquiry into Islamic Beliefs from a Philosophical Perspective - #Thread

This religion predates both the Jewish and Christian faiths.

The purpose of this #Thread is not to mock or condemn Islam, as some of its adherents have done to our religion.
