WHY WAHABIS ARE AGAINST WOMEN'S RIGHTS
during Jahelieh (before Islam) used to bury their daughters alive. Even Omar
(Second Caliph) killed one of his newborn daughters before he became Muslim.
Quran points out that Arabs hated to have daughters. They turned blue when they
heard that they had gotten a daughter. Arabs took pride in having a son and said
that Angels were God's daughters.
now, in Saudi Arabia, women cannot drive a car and women are not allowed to eat
in restaurant with their male family members. Women cannot vote and Saudis think
these are Islamic laws. This is just a Wahabi prejudice against women. These
harsh measures against women are seen in Pakistan too. In most family
gatherings, men eat first, and if there is any food left, then female guests are
allowed to eat. In Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, men decide for women what they
should or should not wear. For them, women's clothing is very important. But,
the men can wear whatever they want. This is Male Chauvinism, not Islam.
it is not unexpected that these Wahabis violently came against Female Imam.
Wahabis say women must wear Hijab (head cover) because Quran said that. But when
Rasool (PBUH) said men must have Kufi (head cover) and full beard, Wahabis say
it is not necessary.
say, let our momen women decide about women's clothing and momen men decide
about men's clothing. Both according to Quran and Sunnah.
Wahabi Imams conduct prayer without head cover sometimes with blue jean and
short sleeve-shirts, and force women to the mosque balcony, in the hot summer
covered from head to toe, considering this Islamic behavior. Prophet (PBUH)
recognized this Arab prejudice. Each time his daughter Fatima (RA) would enter
the mosque, he would stand up and kiss her on her forehead. This Sunnah was
never mentioned by Wahabis.
do we recognize extremism? Half of our Ummah is female. We must remember that.
If any Islamic organization had 50% female leaders, it would truly be an Islamic
organization. Extremism, Wahabism, and terrorism will not grow in that
organization. If you go to an Islamic organization that has no women
representation, you can guess that Wahabis are running the show, and soon
extremists will be attracted to that organization. Please let us know how many
Female Muslim Leaders you see in the Islamic organization you attend. Please
