Getting so sick and tired of seeing Muslim “Feminist” smh…if Islam treats you as equals and gives you the rights that man kind never gave you, why isn’t the label of MUSLIM enough for you? Why do you need to label yourself under an umbrella that often doesn’t coincide with what Islam teaches you. If Muslim men mistreat you because you are a lady, that’s on them for not following the teachings of Islam and they will be punished, and you will be rewarded for having patience, is that not enough for you? When Islam teaches women to cover their beauty and not emphasize any part of their body or face, it’s for a reason. When Islam teaches men and women to lower their gaze, it’s for a reason. When Islam teaches us that we shouldn’t mix with the opposite gender unnecessarily, it’s for a reason. These are all guidelines given to us by Allah SWT, who is the DESIGNER of Everything….
Literally half the Muslim girls on this site are posing, head tilted, smiling in a scandalous way, powdered up, and wearing tight clothing, and they have the nerve to complain that society doesn’t treat them right or why men view them as objects, and how men over sexualize women, and whatever other terms feminists use…stick to the design that Allah SWT has given you via the Quran and Sunnah, and the rest will take care of itself. Life was designed that way. You can’t not follow the manual and then complain about lack of functionality. Get real people. Smh
I’m not trying to put anyone down, we all have our vices and flaws, this if anything is a “wake up” note.
I tried to avoid arguments and debates for my bday today, but this post came up and I knew I had to say something.
First of all, you are slut shaming women and valuing us based on our physical presentation, which Islam is against. You are using our way of dress and how we pose to justify men sexualizing us. I’m not going to get into what hijab should be because I already know what it is. That is aside from the point. Whether someone decides to implement proper hijab or not is not your business. Its not your place to judge. and it sure as hell is not a justification for men to sexualize and mistreat us.
Second of all, don’t preach that we should be patient and silent under oppression, the prophet pbuh never stood around quiet in the face of oppression- he told us to stand for our rights. So who the hell are you to tell us to just “be patient”? If a girl chooses to be patient then by all means thats her choice but you are in no position to suppress us all and tell us to keep quiet and somehow that is supposed to give us our rights. We have rights and our right is to stand up for those rights. Our right is to stand up for ourselves and be treated properly.
Third of all, I’m going to call myself a feminist all I want and the fact that ignorant people don’t know what feminism means is not going to stop me. I am a Muslim feminist. I know Islam is the umbrella that stands for women’s rights, but guess what? Muslims don’t apply it. Muslims have tainted religion with culture so much that they don’t even know the value of women in Islam anymore. So when I say I am Muslim, the statement of women’s rights has eventually lost meaning which is why we reinforce it with use of the word “feminist”. Please go educate yourself on the different types of feminism before you try and tell us not to use a word that you don’t even understand.
Fourth of all, you’re sitting there behind a computer screen judging girls who struggle with hijab and trying to tell us to be patient in the face of oppression and you’re acting like doing that will somehow bring us our rights if we don’t stand up for ourselves. But guess what? You are not allowed to speak on behalf of our oppression, nor are you allowed to suppress us when we stand up for ourselves.
So do us all a favour, and keep your judgemental oppressive and misogynistic opinions to yourself.
