For a number of years now, Islam has been mistaken as a misogynistic faith that favors males over ladies. There are lots of claims that may be made with twisted phrases to mistake what truly is being mentioned within the Quranic textual content and the Hadiths of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). Particularly due to imposing the ready interval after divorce on ladies however not males.
Shut ya eyes!
For instance, one of many largest matters that’s at all times up for debate is the act of purdah. 1
As most of us know, there’s a algorithm which are alleged to be adopted by ladies with regards to the hijab. Nevertheless, what doesn’t get put into the highlight is the “purdah” which is compulsory for males in societies. In Surah An-Nur (24:30) it’s declared:
.قُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَغُضُّوا۟ مِنْ أَبْصَـٰرِهِمْ وَيَحْفَظُوا۟ فُرُوجَهُمْ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ أَزْكَىٰ لَهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ خَبِيرٌۢ بِمَا يَصْنَعُونَ
˹O Prophet!˺ Inform the believing males to decrease their gaze and guard their chastity. That’s purer for them. Absolutely Allah is All-Conscious of what they do.
Proper after this assertion, the following ayah states:
وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَـٰتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَـٰرِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا ۖ وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَىٰ جُيُوبِهِنَّ ۖ وَلَا يُبْدِينَ زِينَتَهُنَّ إِلَّا لِبُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ ءَابَآئِهِنَّ أَوْ ءَابَآءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَآئِهِنَّ أَوْ أَبْنَآءِ بُعُولَتِهِنَّ أَوْ إِخْوَٰنِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِىٓ إِخْوَٰنِهِنَّ أَوْ بَنِىٓ أَخَوَٰتِهِنَّ أَوْ نِسَآئِهِنَّ أَوْ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَـٰنُهُنَّ أَوِ ٱلتَّـٰبِعِينَ غَيْرِ أُو۟لِى ٱلْإِرْبَةِ مِنَ ٱلرِّجَالِ أَوِ ٱلطِّفْلِ ٱلَّذِينَ لَمْ يَظْهَرُوا۟ عَلَىٰ عَوْرَٰتِ ٱلنِّسَآءِ ۖ وَلَا يَضْرِبْنَ بِأَرْجُلِهِنَّ لِيُعْلَمَ مَا يُخْفِينَ مِن زِينَتِهِنَّ ۚ وَتُوبُوٓا۟ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ جَمِيعًا أَيُّهَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ
And inform the believing ladies to decrease their gaze, guard their chastity, and never reveal their adornments besides what usually seems. Allow them to draw their veils over their chests, and never reveal their ˹hidden˺ adornments besides to their husbands, their fathers, their fathers-in-law, their sons, their stepsons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons or sisters’ sons, their fellow ladies, these ˹bondwomen˺ of their possession, male attendants with no want, or kids who’re nonetheless unaware of girls’s nakedness. Allow them to not stomp their toes, drawing consideration to their hidden adornments. Flip to Allah in repentance all collectively, O believers, so that you could be achieve success.
Islam leans to guard each women and men equivalently.
The Quran, as not mentioned by most individuals, mentions males to decrease their gaze first after which tells ladies to guard their chastity.
Apart from such, many different examples are thought-about to be solely informed one-sidedly fairly than sharing the entire reality.
As a Muslim girl, one of many matters that intrigued me essentially the most was the principles and rules of divorce and the demise of a partner for each a person and a girl.
Muslim ladies are typically given a time frame after divorce or the demise of their partner referred to as Iddah. 2
In Surah Al-Baqarah (2:228) it states:
وَالۡمُطَلَّقٰتُ يَتَرَ بَّصۡنَ بِاَنۡفُسِهِنَّ ثَلٰثَةَ قُرُوۡٓءٍ ؕ وَلَا يَحِلُّ لَهُنَّ اَنۡ يَّكۡتُمۡنَ مَا خَلَقَ اللّٰهُ فِىۡٓ اَرۡحَامِهِنَّ اِنۡ كُنَّ يُؤۡمِنَّ بِاللّٰهِ وَالۡيَوۡمِ الۡاٰخِرِؕ وَبُعُوۡلَتُهُنَّ اَحَقُّ بِرَدِّهِنَّ فِىۡ ذٰ لِكَ اِنۡ اَرَادُوۡٓا اِصۡلَاحًا ؕ وَلَهُنَّ مِثۡلُ الَّذِىۡ عَلَيۡهِنَّ
Divorced ladies shall hold themselves in ready for 3 menstrual programs and it’s illegal for them, in the event that they consider in Allah and the Final Day, to cover no matter Allah may need created of their wombs.
The womb is cleansed from the earlier imprint after three menstrual intervals, and it’ll be able to obtain a brand new imprint with out harm or hurt.
For a non-menstruating girl, the interval is 3 lunar months. If the girl seems to be pregnant, then her ready interval lasts till the delivery of the kid.
Nevertheless, there is no such thing as a such time requirement for a person, why is that so?
This has stunned fashionable science after discovering semen.
Wait so, no booty name both?
The liquid imprint of a person accommodates 62 proteins, and it differs from one man to a different, similar to our fingerprints. It’s like a private code for every man; a girl’s physique carries the pc the place the code could be put. If a girl marries one other man instantly after the divorce or permits different codes to enter her, it’s like viruses coming into the pc. This can trigger imbalance, and it’ll carry harmful infectious ailments. It has been confirmed scientifically that in the course of the first menstrual interval after divorce, the girl removes 32% to 35%; within the second interval 67% to 72%; and within the third interval 99.9% of the person’s imprint.
The womb is cleansed from the earlier imprint after three menstrual intervals, and it’ll be able to obtain a brand new imprint with out harm or hurt. Subsequently, the follow of prostitution, or sleeping with multiple man, causes harmful ailments because of the mixing of sperm fluid within the womb.
Right here’s extra of an perception into divorce in response to the 5 Faculties of Islamic Regulation.
Moreover, Surah Al- Baqarah, verse 234 states:
وَٱلَّذِينَ يُتَوَفَّوْنَ مِنكُمْ وَيَذَرُونَ أَزْوَٰجًۭا يَتَرَبَّصْنَ بِأَنفُسِهِنَّ أَرْبَعَةَ أَشْهُرٍۢ وَعَشْرًۭا ۖ فَإِذَا بَلَغْنَ أَجَلَهُنَّ فَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِيمَا فَعَلْنَ فِىٓ أَنفُسِهِنَّ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌۭ
As for these of you who die and depart widows behind, allow them to observe a ready interval of 4 months and ten days. Once they have reached the top of this era, then you definitely usually are not accountable for what they resolve for themselves in an inexpensive method. And Allah is All-Conscious of what you do.
The time for Iddah for a lady whose husband has handed away tends to be just a little longer than for a lady who’s divorced. Any grief alters the hormonal change in such a approach that permits the “imprint” of a person to settle inside a girl in a stronger approach, therefore why it’s required the additional month and 10 days (all collectively 4 months and 10 days).
The explanation why males shouldn’t have to expertise such wait timings is as a result of their our bodies are biologically constructed in a different way. Islam leans to guard each women and men equivalently.
