Sister, You are The Ummah’s Hope!

Before the advent of Islam, the state in which women lived was disgraceful; as they led arduous and miserable lives. Women’s rights were unheard of and their duties far exceeded their capacity. A woman’s life was spent in distress and agony from the moment of birth until the moment of her death; if she escaped being buried alive as a young girl, she would live in humiliation and contempt for the rest of her life.

In the pre-Islamic era, people used to bury young girls alive, and if she survived somehow, she was considered of no consequence, as if she had no right to live. So, what kind of life could women at that time expect?

Islam came to save women from a humiliating and disgraceful existence. It guided women to all that honors her and provides her with the respect that is due to her — whether as a beloved young girl, an honored sister, an affectionate wife or a compassionate and respected mother.

Islam greatly honors women, raises their status and elevates them to the position of which they are worthy, as they are the progenitors of men and the educators of future generations.

Due to the importance of the woman’s role in educating future generations and her direct influence in instilling in them the correct Islamic creed, righteous conduct and morals and teaching them various acts of worship, the enemies of Islam exert great efforts to Westernize her and focus on beguiling her through the deceptive glamorous calls that have ensnared the sons and daughters of our Ummah (nation). Such calls include the so-called movement for “women’s freedom”, “women’s rights”, and calling for “equality between men and women”.

Muslim women should be made aware of and warned against the conspiracies that are being secretly perpetrated against them in order to drag them into the impure swamps of immorality, by continuously tempting them in every possible way to abandon the teachings of their religion that came to safeguard their honor and ensure their happiness in this world and in the Hereafter.

It is truly unfortunate to see that some Muslim women are attracted to these fallacies and lies and even follow them. They have not only adopted such misleading thoughts, they even spread them through various mediums and lead a life of absolute intellectual, social and behavioral subordination to the West. They blindly imitate Western women without thinking. Thus, the following Hadeeth (narration) of the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, applies to them: “You will continue to follow the ways of your preceding nations, span by span and Thiraa’ by Thiraa’ (i.e., a measurement equal to sixty-four centimeters) to the extent that even if they entered a hole of a mastigure, you would follow them (i.e. you will continue to follow your preceding nations so consistently in their disagreeable actions).” The Companions, may Allaah be pleased with them) said, ”O Messenger of Allaah! (Do you mean) the Jews and the Christians?” He said: ”Who else?”

Such women have forgotten that the social, legal, and historical circumstances that faced European woman are totally different from those faced by the Muslim woman. The European woman lived in an unjust society based on human laws rather than divine legislation. Therefore, her rights were exceedingly violated, which made her rebel against her conditions in order to retrieve even a small part of her lost rights.

With regard to the Muslim woman, Islam granted her all her rights more than fourteen centuries ago; hence, she has the right to be proud and hold her head up high by virtue of these rights, which have not been granted to women till this day even in those countries which claim to be “civilized” and “developed”.

O Muslim woman!

The enemies of Islam are trying to deceive you and use you as their weapon by alleging that they want to free you, while, by Allaah, their only purpose is to ruin your chastity and honor and undermine your honorable status and happiness under Islam. You have to stop these oppressors and criminals immediately and firmly because your deviation and loss means the breakup of the family bonds that attach its members; scattering them in life’s mazes.

My dear sisters in Faith!

The enemies of Islam are lying in wait for you, and continue to wage war against Hijaab (Islamic covering) — a continuation of the events in the early history of Muslims when they conspired to remove a Muslim woman’s Hijaab at the time of the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, in the market of Banu Qaynuqaa‘.

This war is continuing until today, because the enemies of Islam realize very well that ruining the Muslim woman means ruining the entire Muslim society.

Undoubtedly, some of those people have grown up under the protection of atheism, thus, they pretend to be Muslims, while they are in fact disbelievers. Such people are very keen to remove the Hijaab of the Muslim woman and stain her honor and dignity. Hence, they find that there is no better way than offering them so-called “woman’s freedom” in the guise of “modern Islam”.

O daughter of Islam!

Do not listen to those who beautify the life of intermixing between the two sexes and abandonment of the Hijaab in the name of “freedom” and “civilized behavior”, so that you are saved from becoming a toy in their hands. Say to them that Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allaah Forgiving and Merciful.} [Quran 33:59]

My dear sister!

Contemplate the following verse and its lessons:

Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {And when he came to the well of Madyan, he found there a crowd of people watering [their flocks], and he found aside from them two women driving back [their flocks]. He said, “What is your circumstance?” They said, “We do not water until the shepherds dispatch [their flocks]; and our father is an old man.”} [Quran 28:23]

This Verse is part of the story of Moosa (Moses), may Allaah exalt his mention, before he was sent to his people as a Messenger of Allaah The Almighty. He went to a distant land to escape from the oppression of Pharaoh. When he arrived there, he found a group of people watering their flocks, with two women standing apart from them. He asked them why they were standing aside. They told him that they had come to this place to water their flock, as their father was an old man and could not work. Nevertheless, they did not justify themselves under this compelling necessity to intermix with men; rather, they waited until the men had finished and then watered their flocks.

My dear Muslim sister!

Would you not review your stance, and contemplate on how to define the safe way?

Return to Allaah The Almighty, contemplate the Quran, and imitate the wives of the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, as this is the only way to Paradise.

Wake up my sister, before it is too late and before your death and reckoning, when the scale will be set and the Siraat (bridge) will be placed over Hell and the obedient people will be distinguished from those who are disobedient.
