A Muslimcel is a subset of the ethnicel, meaning someone whose inceldom can at least in part be attributed to a puritanical Islamic upbringing. The most prominent hadith that discusses what people look for in a spouse is found in both Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim: "it was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the prophet Muhammad said: “A woman may be married for four things: her wealth, her lineage, her attractiveness and her religious commitment. Seek the one who is religiously-committed, may your hands be rubbed with dust (i.e., may you prosper)." Within hadiths, a male point-of-view is often presented because the prophet's companions (sahabah) were male. However, the tafsirs (further expounding) often interpret these principles as gender-neutral.
The Islamic focus on attractiveness, wealth and status sounds very similar to the LMS theory. As such, Islamic principles can be popular even among non-Muslim red pillers and black pillers in the incelosphere.
Hypergamy[edit | edit source]
There are apocalyptic revelations that suggest in the future, hypergamy will be so rife, that for each men there will be forty women following him, due to scarcity of men. It doesn't clarify whether this scarcity is metaphorical, i.e. emasculation of males, or literal reduction in the male demographics. Nonetheless the "signs of the hour", is an Islamic eschatological an end of times concept that denotes negativity and widespread wickedness. As such, hypergamy isn't being praised here:
Abu Musa reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “A time will come to people when a man will go around with gold to give in charity but he will find no one to accept it, and a single man will be seen followed by forty women seeking refuge with him due to the scarcity of men and abundance of women.”
—Bukhari 1348; Sahih Muslim 1012
Inceldom-apathy[edit | edit source]
Muslims today are mostly apathetic about inceldom. Their apathy with regards to inceldom becomes apparent when you hear the loud shrieking from haram-police against extra-marital sex (called zina), but these haram police don't do anything to absolve the popularity of extra-marital sex. The reason why extra-marital sex is so common among proclaimed Muslims is because marriage is difficult to obtain, for financial reasons and social ones. What have the haram-police done to alleviate this situation, i.e. make marriage easier? Nothing. The only conclusion one could draw is that these haram-police are apathetic about involuntary celibacy.
Islam however, according to the original teachings of Muhammad, encourages families to marry their daughters to men who demonstrate good conduct and steadfastness in religion as opposed to good-looks or wealth. A hadith states:
Abu Hatim Al-Muzani narrated that: The Messenger of Allah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: "When someone whose religion and character you are pleased with comes to you then marry (her to) him. If you do not do so, then there will be turmoil (Fitnah) in the land and discord (Fasad)." They said: "O Messenger of Allah! What if there was something about him? (i.e. lacking in looks or status)" He said: "When someone whose religion and character you are pleased with comes to you then marry ( her to ) him." (And he, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said this) three times.
And a verse in the quran states:
And marry the unmarried among you and the righteous among your male slaves and female slaves. If they should be poor, Allah will enrich them from His bounty, and Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
—Surah An-Nur ( The Light ) Verse 32
Contrast[edit | edit source]
Inceldom-affirmation[edit | edit source]
The Quran affirms the existence of inceldom, one verse states:
And let those who do not have the means to marry keep themselves chaste until Allah enriches them out of His bounty.
—Surah An-Nur ( The Light) Verse 33
Thus the solution the Quran ordains for inceldom is patience and chastity. The Quranic narrative heavily places emphasis on the after-life, and regards both good and bad circumstances as tests. Therefore a person blessed with wealth is tasked with being thankful to God, and a person who is poor is tasked with patience.
Now, whenever a human being is tested by their Lord through ˹His˺ generosity and blessings, they boast, “My Lord has ˹deservedly˺ honoured me!”
But when He tests them by limiting their provision, they protest, “My Lord has ˹undeservedly˺ humiliated me!”
Absolutely not! In fact, you are not ˹even˺ gracious to the orphan,
nor do you urge one another to feed the poor.
And you devour ˹others’˺ inheritance greedily,
and love wealth fervently.
—Surah Al-Fajr ( The Dawn ) Verses 15-20
Similarly one blessed with marriage is tasked with being thankful, and those who are incelibate are tasked with patience.
Affirms inceldom existed in the 7th century[edit | edit source]
Inceldom does exist in the hadith. For example in the following hadith, there is a narrative among some men whom are lengthily absent from their spouses, causing them to feel a sense of involuntary celibacy.
Muhaririz said: "I entered the mosque and saw Abu Said al-Khudri. I sat with him and asked about withdrawing the penis (while having intercourse), Abu Said said: We went out with the Apostle of Allah on the expedition to Banu al-Mustaliq, and took some Arab women captive, and we desired the women, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives"
—Abu Dawud, Volume 2, 2167
Polygamy[edit | edit source]
The Quran allows polygamy up to four wives, however it is highly encouraged that one only have one wife:
And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of [other] women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then [marry only] one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline [to injustice].
—Surah An-Nisa ( The Women ) Verse 3
Women are ungrateful[edit | edit source]
A hadith confirms that female solipsist attitudes were even prevalent in the 7th century, illustrated by the following hadith:
I also saw the Hell-fire and I had never seen such a horrible sight. I saw that most of the inhabitants were women." The people asked, "O Allah's Apostle! Why is it so?" The Prophet replied, "Because of their ungratefulness." It was asked whether they are ungrateful to Allah. The Prophet said, "They are ungrateful to their companions of life (husbands) and ungrateful to good deeds. If you are benevolent to one of them throughout the life and if she sees anything (undesirable) in you, she will say, "I have never had any good from you."
—Sahih Bukhari 2:18:161
Could this have been an ancient snippet into the modern #men-are-trash hashtag, wherein the modern 21st century woman voices the opinion that most men are good-for-nothing slothful and indolent idlers? Check out the 21st century equivalent wherein women continue to appear oblivious to the societal favours granted to them.
Caring for Protocels[edit | edit source]
The Sunnah tells a story about how Muhammad cared for a Protocel among his companions, named Julaybib. Julaybib was shunned by society for his deformed looks, dwarfism, poverty, and unknown lineage. In light of these issues, he obviously had trouble finding a wife, so Muhammad asked a Muslim family if their daughter would marry him. Her parents rejected this, but the daughter agreed to marry him, as a display of her faith and devotion to Muhammad. Muhammad then got them married. Later, Julaybib fell during a battle against the pagans of Quraysh, becoming a martyr.
