I wanted your input on this article. What do you think about it?
Do you agree or disagree
Also about one of your comments - yes I agree that good people are just good people whether they are Muslims or not. However not believing in Allah is the worse of actions because it spurs from arrogance, and that was what got Satan to be where he is. So yes good people are good people. One of the best I met was an Atheist. However that does not dismiss Islam from being the truth. If it would have been as such people would have been left alone without any guidance, and as we know people have disagreed over centuries as to what does it mean to be A GOOD PERSON. They even killed each other.
My argument based on proof was that a practicing Muslim or Islam does not allow evil and ill treatment of women, but encourages kind treatment. Every woman is a wife or a daughter, a mother or a grandmother, and paradise is at their feet. Would you treat someone in evil ways if you know that paradise is at their feet. Would you if you knew that the prophet himself told you to treat them kind? No
People have adopted different interpretations of things over the centuries, and women suffered because of their opression, however Islam came to liberate them. Not from God but from this world. A woman has her role in life, give by god, and so does a man. Together they are a team. In a football game the defender cannot complain how come the forward gets to score all the goals? The defender cannot go and leave his or her position and play forward, not can the gollie. When they do, they get a goal against. The defender is part of the team. They have a great major role, and should not complain how come the forward gets certain priviledges. That is the same with man and women. They work together. Women should not complain how come men get to do this and that, while their job is so important and in the eyes of God so great. Women do not need to do all the work to earn paradise as man do. All they have to do is be obedient in good things, and to protect themselves and they can choose which paradise door they want to enter from. They are bestowed upon great things such as child bearing, and mercy that men can never understand. Is that unfair from God or from Islam. My wife loves our children in a different and better way because God gave her that advantage. Should I complain. I have to go out and work hard to earn paradise, while my wife has it at her feet, all she has to do is be satisfied and accept her position on the team. In Islam there are rights and duties. When we come to accept them we will achieve peace.
Women are not instruments of men, not in Islam. They are equitable in the sight of God, but with different rights and obligations. Islam gives equity not equality. Equality means giving 30 children of different genders and different ages the same color shoes, the same size shoes. What is the problem? It won't fit, it will not match their gender, they will seek all their life to try to fit in those shoes, but they will not be. Equity is giving each child based on what they need and what they can accommodate. Each child gets colors that match their gender and size that match their feet. That is Islam
