Muslim – Response:
IslamQ&A website gives some good points why women can not be selected as judges:
We Created men and women equal in Allah’s sight, though Islam understands they have biological differences. And Men and Women can understand they are different, but they can also work their differences harmoniously without trying to live up to man’s and women’s expectations. They each go at their own pace. Islam does believe however in certain gender roles.
Secular Liberalism = Believes in Equal Rights but check this out. It seems what they encourage isn’t reflecting in their modern Society:
Also consider: The Term (Feminism) originates from the Western Activists. This Term is Un-Known in the Muslim World due to Female oppression being Low in Muslim World. Most Feminist Movements are located in Western World.
U.S soldier, sexist comment?
American Soldier tells Iraqi soldiers that they are acting like a bunch of women. Due to them being scared and Coward.
Also note, the West also believes in gender roles. That’s why they will never choose a woman to jump in the boxing ring to fight Mike Tyson. They will always pick a Man to do that!
So gender roles isn’t something strange, and the West still practise it to this very day!
Now a Western may say, well Females can still box in Womens competition.
But that still doesn’t prove a thing, because women can’t box against Men and take advantage of the same level of prize money, viewing, and status. Again they segregate between Men and Women that proves their not co-equal.
In the article bellow we highlight Scientific and Medical reasons for why women can not be appointed as a Judge, read the full article in the attached link below:
In the next video we give more points on the reasons why women in Islam can not be selected as Rulers or Judges, we also show many inconsistency in the West where Womens and Mens rights are taken away from them:
Further proving Gender Roles in Islam from the Quran and Hadith
Now will be showing, How the West imposes it’s values on Afganistan.
Gender roles, even feminists believe in it!
When they ask women what type of men they prefer to marry or have long-term relationships with, they say they prefer macho men who fit the profile of “benevolent sexists” who exude “toxic masculinity.” Even the self-labelled feminists have this preference. Given the option, no woman prefers to marry a weak man who is a pushover, who actively avoids leadership, who wants to be a meek, quiet follower of women. This type of man is literally disgusting to women.
In other words, the gender component is embedded in human nature.
Some Modernist/or Western Feminist will say things like No such thing as gender roles in the West like your Islamic interpretation. Everyone gets an equal opportunity.
When they look for the next fighter to take on Mike Tyson heavy weight champion of the World . They look for another MAN not another Women.
If they knew men and women were equal. Then they would raise a female boxer to take on Tyson wouldn’t they?
Should I continue with gender roles, like how UFC uses beautiful women called a (ring girl) is a woman who enters the ring between rounds of a combat sport, carrying a sign that displays the number of the upcoming round.
This sort of gender roles are all over Western Liberal society, but you wish to think there is no gender roles and everything is just equal across the board 🙃
It’s clear that gender roles do exist in the West, and their is no real equality, when biology proves there are differences.
Muslim Feminism leads to Apostasy.
When you show a certain Hadith to a feminist. And they say, that hadith has to be rejected because it’s Patriarchy, and also not found in the Quran. Just an example where the Hadith says, women should worship men in a symbolic sense. The Feminist then gets outraged and says, that’s symbolic Patriarchy and must be a weak Hadith or even fabricated. The same goes when you show hadith where it, which explicitly talks about women need to take permission from their husbands who they let into their house. Also how women pray behind men, and not men pray behind women, the list goes on. So the Muslim Feminists is outraged by all of this, saying it’s men who wrote that hadith to serve men’s desires.
But then I roll my eyes because there are many examples of Patriarchy within the Quran. Though I don’t like to use the term Patriarchy, because this term Patriarchy has had a negative meaning since it’s been used for ways to abuse women so let’s rather call it, gender roles, just to name a few examples:
Quran says Men can have more women. But nowhere in the History of Islam or the Quran women can have more than one man. Is that too Patriarchy?
The Quran says, that women ought to obey men. But never says Men need to obey Women.
The Quran speaks of men getting Hoorlayin (virgin wives), but it doesn’t mention women getting Hoorlayin.
The Quran speaks about women being disciplined using the (Miswak) but never a Man being disciplined using the (Miswak) I.e in none violent way of course. See Tafsir ibn Kathir under Ibn Abbas’s conduct.
The Quran speaks about, men having right-hand possession (concubines). It does not say Women can have male concubines.
The Quran speaks about, men being the Protectors, providers and maintainers of women, but it does not say women are the Protectors, providers and maintainers of Men.
The Quran speaks about Prophets to be Men, but never does it say that there were Women Prophet’s in the history of Scripture.
The Quran speaks how during transactions, only 1 man witness is needed. And Two female witnesses. It’s never 1 female Witness.
Surah al-Baqarah, Ch:2: V.283
The Quran speaks how men get twice the inheritance women to get.
The Quran speaks about women having to wear a Hijab over most parts of their body, while men only have a specific area such as the Awrah.
So as you can see, gender roles in the Quran are apparent, so if you’re going to reject the Hadith, then to be consistent you would ought to also reject the Quran for Patriarchy or more correctly “gender roles”.
This is our religion and we are unapologetic about it. There are many things also in the Quran and Hadith that favour women and men can not do it also. For example how women don’t have to protect and maintain men, how it’s not hard (compulsory) upon her to attend Cumah while men ought to, how men have to perform Jihad fighting in Battle where you risk your life, and women are not required to risk their lives as such, how men have to pay the Mahir (Bridal gift) even when it can be in the hundreds and thousands, but women don’t have too, and the list goes on. Where women don’t need to fast during breastfeeding or menstruation while men still have to fast, no matter what their work dealings are, and so on.
So this is what we have been saying all along, feminism leads to apostasy because to believe in Western Feminism, it’s designed for you to reject not just the hadith but also the Quran.
There are several ways Apostasy occurs among these feminists. Some of these are more subtle while others are much more apparent.
1 – Where they completely denounce the faith
2 – They may reject Sahi hadith even though it’s classified as being authentic by the council of scholars.
3 – Give a completely different meaning to the verse ( which is pretty much the same as rejecting the verse)
4 – The verse is no longer applicable, or it just is metaphorical. Which is another way of rejecting the ayah.
5 – Openly reject the verse of the Quran. Despite this still claim they are Muslim and accuse you not to judge them and only God can judge them.
6 – Claim that the Hadith contradicts the Quran based on it not being found in the Quran. (By the way, this isn’t how Islamic jurisprudence works, because everything is helal until the Quran or hadiths proves its haram. And everything is Haram until the Quran and Hadith prove it to be Helal. If either the Quran or Hadith is silent then it becomes lawful, and vice versa.
Feminism started all innocent, you know like sticking up for women oppression and domestic abuse or equal right and opportunity in the workplace like equal pay and so on. But these days it pushed itself into an ideology where it tries to remove every type of gender role and tries to change any legal code or religious belief because they continued to get blinded by their hatred towards men and so they think that anything that is withheld from women classifies as a Misogynistic idea. But of course, you would hardly see them complain when scripture also favours them. Then it’s all fine and justified. And when they are pushed into “consistency in their logic” is when the next stages to apostasy take place.
