Ribs are Bent for a Reason

March 1, 2008

We’ve all heard the comparison, in religious context, of women to a bent rib.

If your mind has misogynistic tendencies, you may think of bent as “crooked.” Something wrong, perverse, undesirable.  While a bent butter knife or curved hammer handle may be useless, a bent rib is not.

A rib curves from front to back, protecting your internal organs.

If it was straight, it would not be nearly as beneficial.

Don’t try and straighten your rib.  You’ll hurt yourself.

  1. Salaam Alaikum,

    Fantastic and I’m sure there’s a hadith stating something similar.
