The other half of a man

Since 2008-07-01

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

All praise be to Allah alone, and peace and blessings of Allah be upon the Prophet after whom there are no other prophets.

There is has not been a woman on the course of human history who has gained as much as the woman has enjoyed under the law of Islam, where it has returned her to her appropriate status. It has elevated her from the status of lustrous desires and absurdities; and has balanced between her rights and her physical constitution. Islam has honored woman with the greatest honors, and has protected her from humiliation and contempt; it has saved her from corruption and wrongdoing.

When Islam emerged women were at the lowest grades and the basest bottoms, it saved them and placed them in their rightful place. A woman has become, by the religion of Allah, honored and dignified. Islam has identified her duties and obligations as appropriate to her physical build and nature; away from men, and away from everything that offends her modesty and corrupts her morals. It has ordered her to be modestly dressed and to be covered from people, and warned her of wanton display and unveiling; it forbade her from the intermingling out of mercy towards her and fearing for her as well as for honoring her.

How vast the gap is between women in the Islamic society, especially in this country, which has protected their dignity and has preserved their rights, and those which have humiliated and debased women, accepting their wanton display, unveiling and their intermingling with men; they have given women uncontrolled and unchecked freedom that caused their innate nature to set back and their dignity to be robbed. Thus, women have become a cheap commodity to be bought and sold and afterwards be thrown away, after being expired, without pity or mercy.

Saudi women are no less than their peers in other societies as being alleged by the followers of falsehood; rather, they have excelled in many areas over the women of those communities.

She has exceeded all because she is taking constant steps, balancing between her ambition which drives her for learning and hard work and between the preservation of the teachings of her True religion. This equilibrium that adorned the Saudi woman is the secret of her excellence which impressed many people. You see a woman on the peak of her elegance, of cleanliness of core and appearance, and the highest level of cultural and intellectual awareness, while maintaining and preserving all of this by the ornament of her religious and mental veil. She is not lured by the calls of the corrupt nor is she affected by the cries of the fallen. She is aware of what had happened to the daughters of her sex in other societies of moral fall, degradation, humiliation and vulgarity.

In spite of this prestigious high status of the Muslim women in general and Saudi women in particular, unfortunately there are people with little knowledge and dominating ignorance who underestimate the importance of the role of women in this country and describe them as retarded and regressive and accuse the society of mistreating women and plundering them of their rights, and that it has disrupted their potentials. They have been exasperated by the women's adherence to their religion and their preservation of their hijab and morals. They do not want women to be like this; they want them unveiled, wantonly displaying themselves, they want them intermingling with the men and driving cars. They even want the opening of sports clubs for women under the pretext of serving the country and keeping pace with the era and the like of which is not approved by religion nor accepted by morals. It is noteworthy that they illogically link between the role and function of women in society and the joke of her driving a car as if the role required from women in the service of their religion and homeland is taking of the position of a driver!!

And those who advocate for the so-called liberation of women are either ignorant of the reality of what women suffer in other societies, or that they are psychologically defeated and are affected by the Western culture as a model to be followed; they are allured by the glittering blue eyes of Western women, withholding them from seeing the filth emanating from the reality of this moral degradation.

Is it from the innate nature that we take women out from their basic function and tell them that society cannot walk on one leg! What injustice and undervaluation of their rights and their efforts and degradation of their status is greater than this!

Hence, a woman is the sister of a man; she holds a share and he holds another share, but if she equals him in work and function and going out, then she is not called a sister, rather she is called a man!!

It is no secret that the motive behind those writers is not reform, as they claim, but it is the love of corruption and the disease of the hearts and lustrous desires: {In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allâh has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies.} [Surat Al-Baqarah: 10].

{فِي قُلُوبِهِم مَّرَضٌ فَزَادَهُمُ اللَّـهُ مَرَضًا ۖ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْذِبُونَ} البقرة: 10

Transliteration: Fee quloobihim maradun fazadahumu Allahu maradan walahum AAathabun aleemun bima kanoo yakthiboona

If it is shown to those advocates the method of Allah and His law in the reform of the land and the people, and that their call is but corrupting the earth they become stubborn and brag that they are the reformers: {And when it is said to them: "Make not mischief on the earth," they say: "We are only peace-makers." (11). Verily! They are the ones who make mischief, but they perceive not.} [Surat Al-Baqarah: 11-12].

{وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لَا تُفْسِدُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ قَالُوا إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ مُصْلِحُونَ ﴿١١﴾ أَلَا إِنَّهُمْ هُمُ الْمُفْسِدُونَ وَلَـٰكِن لَّا يَشْعُرُونَ} البقرة: 11-12

Transliteration: Waitha qeela lahum la tufsidoo fee alardi qaloo innama nahnu muslihoona (11) Ala innahum humu almufsidoona walakin la yashAAuroona

But by the grace of Allah the ground of this country is not fragile, through which they can spread their ideas and achieve their desires. Because the approach of this State, may Allah honor it, is not commensurate with their ideas neither is it consistent with their purposes. The issue and the subject of women in the country of monotheism have been done with; the pens have been lifted and dried according to the Quran and the Sunnah and the methodology of the nation's predecessor, upon which this country has been established since the presence of the first Saudi State till this day; women are safe in their seclusion, working for what they have been created for. They are envied by the entire world: Muslim and infidel.

It is regrettable that the call of those writers has some effects on some teenage deluded girls who may be fooled by such calls. They are calls that tackle their feelings and manipulate their emotions. We really wonder when we hear and read about the cries of the Western women here and there, when they call for the necessity of women to return to what is commensurate with their nature and physical composition after the successive concessions led to the plunder of their dignity and chastity, while some of our girls still believe that those who want to take them out of modesty and dignity, under the pretext of giving them their rights wish them goodness and happiness!!

If women call this good; then what is evil?

We tell every woman to beware of falling in the abyss that women in other societies have fallen into. A women in those societies has some excuse that there was no conservative society existent to help her preserve herself and her dignity, and save her rights and status. What is the excuse in her conservative religious society which calls for modesty, chastity, purity and dignity!

From what and why are they liberating you?

O Muslim sister: do you know from what and why are they liberating you?

They want to free you from your pure femininity, from your life and chastity, from your morals and values… They want to free you from your innate nature and your noble status, which has been chosen by Allah for you, they want to free you from all beautiful and pure meanings.

As for why they want to liberate you?

It is in order to facilitate for them leading you, to fulfill their desires and feed their lustrous impulses and to make you a silly vulgar material for their lowdown stories and their falling art.

Sister… They want to free you for things and stuff!! Then why do not you free yourself from their freedom?!
