  • A CALL!!! To All of the Muslim Women of the World

    Asalamalaykum, Its a little bit long but inshaAllah you'll find it well wroth the read.

    The Wasiyyah of Ash-Sheikh Abdur-Rahman as-Sudais

    My Muslim Sister, you will never be able to reach the perfection that
    you desire, you won't be able to regain your lost glory of the past,
    or achieve your highest rank and position unless you follow the
    teachings of Islam and unless you stop at the limits and boundaries
    of the Sharee'ah. This will make your heart love and appreciate the
    good qualities and will keep you away from bad and evil qualities.

    So stay at your homes. By Allah you will be praised; you will please
    your household and make your home happy; you will perfect your
    Hijaab; you will perfect your chastity, revive others and you will
    make yourself happy and comfortable.

    Allah says "O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their
    bodies. That will be better, that they should be known (as free
    respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever Oft-
    Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Surah al-Ahzaab 33:59).

    So with Islam you are a " protected jewel", but without it you are a
    doll in the hands of the wrong-doers; a mere object of amusement and
    a merchandise of trade in the hands of human wolves who will destroy
    your chastity, your honour and your dignity, and then throw you and
    disregard you as one does with a date fruit and its seed.

    So whenever the woman abandons the teachings of Islam and neglects
    the proper Islamic dress and takes easy the matter of Hijaab,
    exposing herself to men (by) walking among them and wearing perfume,
    her dignity and honour vanishes and her brightness disappears, and
    her modesty dwindles, and she becomes a source of fitnah (temptation
    and trial) for others and the "evils" embrace her. Therefore, O
    Muslim woman, who cherishes and holds onto the honour of Islam (and
    is proud of the honour of Islam), and O free, honourable, chaste and
    protected woman, you are the best successor of the best past
    generation of Muslims. Hold fast to the book of Allah and to the
    Sunnah (way and teachings) of His Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa

    Beware of the hands of the wicked plotters and the jealous eyes, and
    people with bad character and evil souls, who want to lower you from
    the highness of your esteemed position and dignity, and lower you
    from your glory of higher rank, and take you out from the circle of
    your happiness. And beware of the deception and defeat before the
    open war between Hijaab and sufoor (revealing beauty), and between
    chastity and liberalism.

    The enemies of Islam among the Jews and their followers are upset and
    sleepless over the fact that the Muslim woman is honourable,
    dignified and protected, so they put her under the spotlight, trap
    her in (fisherman-like) nets and shoot her with their arrows.
    Moreover, it is strange that some people from our skin and who speak
    our language follow them and spread their ideas and fulfil their
    aims, and wage in intellectual and cultural war against our Muslim
    sisters, who are the moisture of our faces, through the alluring and
    deceiving slogans and the charming articles here and there. Thus,
    they falsely and deceivingly call to the freedom of the woman and ask
    (and push) her to work, to coming out of her home. They spread
    rumours about Muslim women saying "... the conservative Muslim
    society (the real one indeed, The Muslim society can only be
    conservative) is that which half of it does nothing and breathes only
    from one lung..., and how can the Muslim woman stay prisoner at home
    between four walls...", and other misleading slogans.

    They want freedom for the woman, but in reality they want to free her
    from her character and etiquette, and to strip her from her
    principles, dignity and honour, and lead her into evil and
    corruption. They want her to be a fashion model and an item for sale
    to the naive and simple-minded (assuthajj wal busataa').

    Who is then left to the well-being of homes; to the happiness of the
    family; to raise and educate children?

    How many young women get trapped and how much tragedy happens when
    the Hijaab is destroyed and the jilbaab (outer garment) is taken off
    and the 'wolves" (wicked men) devour the woman. Such is as a result
    of sufoor (revealing beauty) and mingling with men in jobs, schools,
    and market places.

    Isn't it enough zajr (reminder) what the societies, who did not
    practice the teachings of Islam, fell into in terms of indecency,
    evils, and disappearance of values when they neglected and ignored
    the matter of the woman? As a result of that, there are now repeated
    calls in these societies asking for the return of the woman to her
    protected fort; her home.

    Would any man with the slightest bit of ghairah (honour) and rujoolah
    (manhood) be content to see his wife become a "pasturage" of the eyes
    of the wicked men, and to become a "serving on the dining table". The
    current condition of some societies is a witness that when the woman
    goes out of her home, it is a sign of destruction, loss, corruption,
    and spread of indecency and mischief in society.

    Therefore, to all our Muslim Sisters in the east and in the west of
    the Muslim world, I call upon you from this holy and pure land
    (Makkah) to hold fast to the Qur'an and to bite onto the Sunnah of
    His Messenger sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, with the front teeth,
    and to follow the teachings of Islam and its adaab (etiquette).

    And to the women organizations all over the world, beware of the
    stupidity and bad results of the disobedience of the woman to the
    guidance of Islam. Beware of being tempted by the flashing slogans
    and poisoned publicity against the character of the woman and her

    And to the people responsible for the Muslim child in her education
    and care, I call upon you to fear Allah and to fulfil your duty
    towards her while taking care of her belief, educational and ethical

    A clear limit and divider (boundary) must be set against indecency,
    wicked movies and naked pictures that destroy honour and virtue and
    that develop dayaathah (absence of honour and manhood to the point
    where a man does not care about the females of his family in terms of
    what other men may do with them) and indecency.

    As to the guardians of women, fathers and husbands, I remind them of
    their duty of qawaamah (protection and maintenance) of women
    according to what Allah said:

    "Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore, the righteous women are
    devoutly obedient (to Allah and to their husbands), and guard in the
    husband's absence what Allah orders them to guard. As to those women
    on whose part you see ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next),
    refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is
    useful), but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means
    (of annoyance). Surely, Allah is Ever Most High, Most Great." (Surah
    an-Nisa 4:34).

    So they have to fear Allah, and save themselves and their children
    from the punishment of Allah by raising and educating them according
    to the teachings of Islam, and they should be warned from being loose
    and neglectful in this matter. I call on their ghairah (honour)
    towards their women and their rujoolah (manhood) in order to preserve
    the honour and to protect their mahram women, in addition to
    protecting their values, principles and characters.

    So, O wise people, take a lesson, and be aware and don't be deceived
    for the successful is one who is reminded through (the mistakes of)
    others, and know that the Ummah reached this sad state and crisis
    only after it was it hit in its system of life and when it neglected
    the appropriate education and upbringing of its women. And remember
    that the trustworthy and trusted (the Prophet) sallallaahu 'alayhi wa
    sallam, said: "I haven't left behind me a fitnah more harmful to men
    than women (when they go astray from the guidance of the Islam)."
    (Bukhaaree and Muslim).

    Let me ask you something Abu M, Becoming an ideal Islamic woman, or Muslim woman, is a process, right? I mean , perfection wont be attained this side of heaven. So, how does Islam teach about women growing into their Islamic roles? Are they expected to be the "perfect" Islamic wife right away, or is it something that you slowly process into?

          Funny Marjan!!!

          Anyhow yes Hen it is a process. Sadly it is a process many brothers struggle to accept. They struggle to accept that sisters have to learn many things, and that they are human but inevitably once they are married they simply have to accept that. Mashaa Allah as time goes on al hamdulillah with a good sister she will strive to reach the most perfect point she will ever establish in this life. She will work hard to be a good mother, she will strive extremely hard to be a good wife and she will ask for forgiveness to Allah and those close to her for all her shortcomings. Her attempts in this inshaa Allah will be pleasing to Allah as well those close to her, blessing her with peace in her own life.

          No person is perfect, and all the posts here towards benefit to the women are goals in which we all should simply strive to work towards, no one is saying that women MUST be all of these things, but they are guidelines to help us achieve Allahs pleasure...

            the only way a muslimah can truly stay at home is if a muslim man truly lives according to his Deen. stop preaching to sisters how to live and obey. do your job first. we follow your lead.

              i know this question was directed to Abu M.. but i just could not help myself.


              Islam was not revealed overnight. It was revealed over a twenty year period. it takes time, some need more time than others. some sisters can begin wearing hijab right away, some need more time. i ve been a muslim for over a decade now and i am still learning and making alot of mistakes as well.

              during the pre-Islamic era..the arabs were the worst of people. they were women abusers, killed their baby daughters at birth by burying them alive, participated in horrible acts, idol worshipping..etc. Islam slowly transformed them. they didnt change overnight. (perhaps if it all came down at one time, no one would of wanted to accept all the changes at once)(Allah knows best)

              Islam slowly transformed a terrible people into the most humble and pious people. people who went from the worst of actions, to the best of conduct. praying, fasting, giving in charity..etc.

                Salam Alaikum,
                I very much agree with you Tahiya - many tend to look at the muslim women and point fingers. Why? because it is easiest. Our parents' generation are not the best of muslims - I personally have seen alot of wrong doing from men claiming they are devout muslim men but as soon as they step into their home they completely change I feel very sorry for the wives in these marriages But Allah knows best what you do. So to the men that are concerned with what other people think. Stop and remember what Allah is thinking right now

                    Well I have to disagree, in the western world the same should apply. I do not believe that a woman should be out of her home, working and having to deal with the day to daystruggles of being outside of the home, compromising her garb and her hayaa. Unfortunatly for some this is what has to happen but mashaa Allah in that time I believe that we should be making duaa that this too can change so that we may be able to live out our God given rights from Allah ta'ala. Inshaa Allah for those who do have to work may Allah make it an ease for you place you in positions that allow you to not have to work and bless you with what is best for you Ameen... Brothers do all you can within your power to allow your wives their right to be in their home where their salat is truly most accepted for them inshaa Allah. May Allah make it easy on the brothers to bless their wives with all of their rights Ameen!
