    Who came up with "Stereotypical"...

    Not everyone is the same so you can't assume oh he's a guy so he's going to be lazy and not to house hold chores?

    Same for women too. Well most girls do love shopping and what not, but certainly the guys in my family that i know aren't lazy or what ever.

    So pshhhht

    One of the obvious ones is that only females are to clean and cook (literally that it's shameful and not the place of a man to cook or wash anything and if the house is a mess then women clean and men don't). Women shouldn't challenge any authority (right or wrong it's not your place to speak out). There's plenty moree but my mind has gone blank. I'll post them up when i remember inshaAllah. Audhubillahi mina'shaytaani rajeem. This is where i would be able to fire with a million things but i've blanked.

    depends on the brother. most brothers are passive. they dont speak against democracy or talk of the virtues of shariah. not about the justice of islam or anything. they are quite simply passive.

    some brothers however challenge the leaders and the system, act on the Qur'an, preach it and teach it openly and proudly with dignity, wisdom, and confidence.they are firm therein when trouble comes their way from their enimies, they hold fast to the rope of Allah, and are paitent with salah, and the froot they recive from those seeds are sweeter then dates. those are the people of al-ghurabah, and the firdaus is for them. for they enjoin what is right, and forbid what is wrong, even if its just them against the world.

    however they never feel alone, because they know allah is with those who are pious, and spread the message of islam.
