Jordan is considered a "moderate" Muslim state but every year women and girls in Jordan are burned, beaten, or stabbed to death by family members because they are seen as having transgressed social codes of "honor."
It is estimated that 5,000 women are murdered each year by their families as an act of "honor killing"
The real number of women and girls who are murdered in "honor killings" is unknown as most murders are reported as "accidents".
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male (guardians husband, father, brother and even uncle).
Throughout the Middle East, Asia and Africa in countries where Sharia laws and Hadith are practiced, rape is considered the woman's fault and "shame" to the whole family of the victims.
Under Sharia law rape or extramarital sex is considered zina which is punished by one hundred lashes and stoning to death.
In the Arab-Muslim world rape victims are often murdered by their own family members on "charges" of adultery as a "honor killing" in order to save the family honor.
