A Muslim Convert's Take on US Women & Society
May 26, 2010
One of my female friends phoned and asked:
"Did you see the new Sex and the City movie? This show is crap. Can't believe they made it into a full length movie. As a female, I resent they make women so stupid and shallow."
Thank God for this friend. Because I work in an office with six women who are:
Career driven women without any emotions and compassion and love and respect.
Stressful women who can be very very angry and hateful
Women who look like women from the outside but there is a beast in them.
Women who are always accusing men of being the reason they are like that -- "you figure!"
Women who are liars and malicious and have nothing to do but to save as much money and try to step on everything you can imagine to keep their jobs.
Should I go on? I know one
thing, these women if they were to get married "I doubt that" they will
be A DISASTER!!!! They will be real bad mothers of the west!
I am a proud Muslim covert and I watch TV, movies, listen to my iPod but I know that Allah (God) is aware of everything that I do. I just use good judgment in how I live my life and how I use those technologies that He has given us all.
people totally lose all sight and remembrance of our Creator.
western society are oversexed, overworked, overweight, everything is in
excess- alcohol, food, sex---EVERYTHING!
More and more people are watching pornography, committing rape and other crimes, cheating on their partners; being promiscuous... should I go on?
Islam really solves all the ills of modern society. We are taught to turn away from immoral actions and gain the pleasure of our Lord Allah. We are forbidden from drinking alcohol, gambling, and sexual intercourse outside of a marriage. We are taught to lower our gaze and not look at the opposite sex. That guidance is a blessing from Allah to heal all the sicknesses of the heart such as lust and depravity.
And as far as Western culture transforming women into objects of sex and lust, walk down the streets in the summertime. Take a look at any one of the fashion magazines; it's obvious that women are extremely objectified and looked at as pieces of meat. They're judged by this society by what they look like, not their personality and intelligence, and that's very sad.
This is why Allah commanded women to follow the guidelines of hijab and to cover their bodies. They were given their dignity and respect because men view them as strong women instead of conquests.
As Muslims, we should not reject any society or any technologies, but embrace them while still staying modest and true to our faith and in remembrance of Allah, the Creator of everything.
P.S.: True Christians and Jews don't even do those
things. Unfortunately, we are under attack!
