Judge Rejects Muslim Woman’s Demand To Oath on the Quran

A Muslim woman involved in a custody dispute with her separated husband refused to take an oath on the Bible in a Pennsylvania court, demanding instead to be allowed to use a copy of the Quran, Conservative Tribune reported.

The unnamed judge presiding over the case of Musaitef v. Musaitef, however, refused to allow her to do so, citing state law.

Under Pennsylvania law, oaths must be sworn on the Bible or be non-religious in nature, but still considered binding.
The woman is now challenging that law, arguing that it discriminates against her religious beliefs.

The husband, meanwhile, swore his oath on the Bible without incident — perhaps because under Islam, oaths sworn on books other than the Quran are not considered binding.
