The issue of women in Islam, is the topic of great misunderstanding and distortion due partly to a lack of understanding, but also partly due to misbehavior of some Muslims which has been taken to represent the teachings of Islam. We speak here about what Islam teaches, and that is that standard according to which Muslims are to be judged. As such, my basis and source is the Quran–the words of Allah, and the sayings of the Prophet, his deeds and his confirmation. Islamic laws are derived from these sources. To facilitate our discussion we can discuss the position of women from a spiritual, economic, social, and political standpoint. Continue reading “Women’s Rights in Islam”
The beauty of our women.
She’s smart, modest, coy and witty, mashallah and she is so pretty. shes your , mother, sister and neice, without whom i know, i’d be missing a peice. she works, cooks and cleans, loves to drive, travel and ooh she also loves to read.
Most non-muslims would say that she was oppressed but thats probably because of the way that she is dressed, if only they knew she was too keen to impress! Allahu Akbar! she would so openly express…that life was nothing but a test. Continue reading “The beauty of muslim women”
“It is evident from many authentic Traditions that the Prophet himself intensely detested the idea of beating one’s wife, and said on more than one occasion, “Could any of you beat his wife as he would beat a slave, and then lie with her in the evening?” (Bukhari and Muslim).
According to another Tradition, he forbade the beating of any woman with the words,
“Never beat God’s handmaidens” (Abu Da’ud, Nasa’i, Ibn Majah, Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Ibn Hibban and Hakim, on the authority of Iyas ibn ‘Abd Allah; Ibn Hibban, on the authority of ‘Abd Allah ibn ‘Abbas; and Bayhaqi, on the authority of Umm Kulthum).
When the above Qur’aan-verse authorizing the beating of a refractory wife was revealed, the Prophet is reported to have said:
“I wanted one thing, but God has willed another thing – and what God has willed must be best” (see Manar V, 74).
With all this, he stipulated in his sermon on the occasion of the Farewell Pilgrimage, shortly before his death, that beating should be resorted to only if the wife “has become guilty, in an obvious manner, of immoral conduct”, and that it should be done”in such a way as not to cause pain (ghayr mubarrih)”; authentic Traditions to this effect are found in Muslim, Tirmidhi, Abu Da’ud, Nasa’i and Ibn Majah. On the basis of these Traditions, all the authorities stress that this “beating”, if resorted to at all, should be more or less symbolic – “with a toothbrush, or some such thing” (Tabari, quoting the views of scholars of the earliest times), or even “with a folded handkerchief” (Razi); and some of the greatest Muslim scholars (e.g., Ash-Shafi’i) are of the opinion that it is just barely permissible, and should preferably be avoided: and they justify this opinion by the Prophet’s personal feelings with regard to this problem.(Quran Ref: 4:34 ) ”
The Prophet explained it by “dharban ghayra mubarrih” which means “a light tap that leaves no mark”. He further said that face must be avoided. Some other scholars are of the view that it is no more than a light touch by a siwak, or toothbrush.
To confirm the above concept, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, “How does anyone of you beat his wife as he beats the stallion camel and then embrace (sleep with) her?” ( Reported by Al-Bukhari)
In another hadith, he is also reported to have said, “Do not beat the female servants of Allaah.”So we conclude Wife-beating is not allowed under no circumstances
Dont laugh, she is liberated, she is democratic, she is not exploited but she is valued for her intelligence ..
West democracy has given her GREAT STATUS…
and let’s see the 2013 (According to thierself Most Civilized) Women in the World…
Choose which girl u like…1 throw 20 Baht…but not all of them are girls
AND what about those who have choosen the true way of life (not being slave of money…and not to b traded or sold for money)..
The girls in the picture are the two French sisters Alma and Lila Lévy-Omari. Their story is so famous in France. Even though their parents are non religious (Jewish father and an Arab non practicing Muslimah mother), but the two French girls fell in love with the religion of Islam. At the beginning, the two girls stopped eating pork.
A while later, they informed their father that they intended to fast during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan. Then the sisters informed him of their intention to pray five times a day, as commanded by the Qur’an. There is no reason why they shouldn’t do this, thought the father. Then they stopped going to the beach and wearing bathing suits. At night the two sat and learned chapters of the Qur’an by heart. Friends in the neighborhood and at school were amazed by the change in the two cheerful young women.
Gradually they began to wrap themselves in long clothing, even in the summer, and covered their legs with thick stockings. A little while later, the transformation was completed. Lila and Alma donned scarves and covered their heads. At school they stopped talking to boys. They did not take part in physical education classes, as they were required to wear gym clothes that they felt revealed too much of their bodies.
In 2003, the headmaster of their high school made them choose between removing their “Hijab” (it wasn’t even a Hijab, they just covered their head, neck and ears) and between being excluded from their high school for ever. He even suggested that they show their ears and neck so that he let them continue their studies. But Alma and Lila considered that “showing ears and neck is no longer Islamic, is no longer Hijab” and refused the suggestion of the headmaster of their high school and left it on 24th September 2003.
Their Jewish father who is a lawyer, supported the decision of their daughters
“what a father would do if their daughters want to be modest?!” said the father “what they are wearing is not even the Islamic Hijab which should cover the chest! I support my daughters and I am proud of them!” One of the reasons some politicians and scholars cite for supporting the ban of the head covering is that the scarf -in their view- is a universal symbol of women being oppressed by men.
Alma says: “In my point of view, if you want to defend an oppressed woman, then don’t oppress another one.” Today, hundreds of girls like Lila and Alma Levy are forced to make a decision: To take off the scarf and continue their education or to insist on wearing it and face exclusion and even humiliation.
This is a clear message to every Muslimah who says that she can’t wear Hijab because they don’t allow it in her school/work.
