Manism versus feminism

What is to be a manist? by Ammaara Uddeen
If you know the story of the creation of mankind, you certainly know that the Creator first created a man and the latter seemed unhappy to live alone and God created from his ribs, a woman so that she may be his companion.
Both men and women are creatures of God. They have been divinely wished to be partners of one another and to live together. Various interpretations have been given to term this relationship however our subject here is about: Manism

Manism starts long before feminism. Men did not have to group together and say: “well, we are going to create a male community in order to voice out our rights or to safeguard our rights.” NO. There was no need to do that. By their physical power they have imposed themselves and have threatened women to serve them. women were purchased as slaves to serve and entertain men, to dance for them, to serve them wine…..Harems were commonly known.

For generations, women have played the role of chattels. They were taken as objects: marketable objects, sexual objects……They were brainwashed. And on top of that, women used to worship men thinking that they were gods and they would look down upon any ambitious woman or any woman who wanted to voice out truth.

The concept of manism which is derived from ‘man’ has always prevailed. We live in a patriarchal society where men have tried to maintain power at the expense of women. Women have been brainwashed for decades, believing that they have been created as second-hand creatures, to please men, to work for men, to obey men, to strive for men and to be happy with a role given to them by men.

For centuries, men were manist and women manist too because many women are more interested to be on the sides of men rather than trying to understanding the causes and sufferings of women in the society. For example, when a woman leaves her husband and abandon her children, the whole society may look down on her. Nobody makes an effort to understand WhY she had to abandon them; may be she feared for her life because her husband is violent and if she runs away with the children, he may killed her or may be he has threatened her emotionally. There are so many reasons and by the way, what if a man leaves behind her wife and decides to marry another woman, or because his wife is sick, he decides to marry a second wife to entertain him….you see, you may find hundreds who will acclaim this act and say it is halal. Another example is when you hear the case of a battered husband. You are shocked but when you hear several cases of conjugal violence, you listen passively because your mind gives you a signal that it is ok. Men can beat their wives, but women cannot beat their husbands. Men can be violent but women cannot. Men can ride a motorbike but women should not.
So, as you see, people have been raised with such notions of injustices between men and women. Many men cannot understand that women have feelings. They are married because of their beauty or their skin color….as if they are objects.
A manist is similar to a feminist. But they mock at feminist and put it into a man’s perspective, as a joke, like how feminists always try to make females more equal where manists try to make men more equal.
Today, many women are fed up with the concept of manism, and they have voiced out their rights – they are known as feminists.
Sometimes, these feminists parties have gone a bit too far…but this is not our topic here.
I am NOT a feminist and there is NO reason for me to be a feminist. If you believe sincerely in Allah as Your Creator then you are aware that Allah is just upon both genders and He is Compassionate towards both.
The Qur’an gives ample space for both men and women to live happily, to understand each other and to work alongside in harmony.
 If men decide to free themselves of their ego and give women their just valor, things would have been easier for everyone.
Let’s say NO to manism. Stop gender discrimination. Stop injustices done against women in the society. Allow women to be educated. Allow them to choose a husband of their choice. Allow them to seek proper knowledge and let them live happily in their houses.

The Evil System established to enslave people

This is  [part] of an interview done by Magazine Forteresse about what is an Evil System. Interviewee: Sister Ammaara Uddeen
Question:  What do you mean by evil system?
Answer:Any system, any organization, any structure, any form of thought that contradicts what Allah, who is the Creator of all human beings [not just you and me] has planned for mankind, is an evil system!!!!  Allah has not created human beings to live according to their own whims and desires. NO. Allah has given mankind a direction to follow. This direction is called hidayat [guidance]. Al Hidayat is obligatory for the survival of mankind on earth and after earth-life. It is interesting to note that the passage of mankind on earth is short lived. 
Coming back to your question: If for some reasons, a few people decide to establish a system, a model of life, which opposes the plan of Allah, this will naturally create a huge chaos in the society and threatens many lives.
Question: Where can this ‘good’ system be found?
Answer: This system has been explained throughout the Qur’an. Muslims and non-Muslims alike often view the Qur’an as a religious Book. It is sad. We are not giving to the Qur’an its true worth. Muslims read the Qur’an because their ancestors used to read it and they want to get some rewards out of it. The truth is, the Qur’an is hidayat – true guidance for mankind. It brings any individual towards awareness and consciousness. The Qur’an has a solution for our problems, difficulties and confusion. The Qur’an has the unique appeal to address each individual according to his level of thought, his problem, his reality….This is why it should be read with understanding. You cannot read a Book in a language that you do not understand, except when you read the Qur’an for tilawat or for memorisation and for other good reasons; however, if you want hidayat and you want to progress in your life, you need to read the Quran with full understanding, you need to stop from time to time to reflect and ask yourself how you are supposed to change your whole mind set with these Divine Words?
Didn’t Allah say: ” (This is) a Book (the Qur’an) which We have sent down to you, full of blessings that they may ponder over its verses, and that men of
understanding may remember [38:29].”
Question: So, according to you Muslims are not reading the Qur’an with understanding?
Answer: Sadly no!!! The vast majority of Muslims are following a system which is not the System of Allah. They read the Qur’an, they perform salah, they are not convinced to change their lives accordingly; except some few things, here and there. Allah says in surah Furqan verse 77 : ” Say: My Lord would not care for you were it not for your prayer; but you have indeed rejected (the truth), so that which shall cleave shall come.” Truth is found in the Qur’an. Anything we try to invent which contradicts the essence of the Qur’an, is not truth!!!! So, it must be rejected.
Question: Islam is divided into several sects though they all claim the Qur’an as the Divine Book. How do you explain this?
Answer: This sad reality has been predicted by the prophet of Allah. His name is Muhammad [peace and blessings be upon him]. He declared that our community will be split into factions and only one of them will follow the hidayah. Coming back to your question, I will say that the vast majority of Muslims do not read the Qur’an for understanding. They read the Qur’an as a mere recitation and they rely on their sheikhs, their maulanas etc to explain the Qur’an to them. And this is the problem!!! There are many additions, many substractions, many wrong interpretation, many male interpretations and many explanation based on culture, traditions…which are incompatible with the True Message of the Qur’an. This explains the various differences that exist between those groups. However, this is not the only problems….
Question: What else?
Answer: The various fabricated and weak hadiths that the enemies of Islam are spreading. The prophet [peace be upon him] has been sent to explain the Qur’an, so it is logical that his words cannot contradict the Qur’an. Any contradiction proves the falsity of the hadith. Muslims who have at heart to live acccording to the message of Islam, should be well-aware of this. Islam is based on justice, equity and welfare for both genders, any hadith which contradicts this aspect, must be rejected because it cannot bring any good to the society except despair, injustice, frustration, depression and hatred between men and women. Islam means peace in all aspects of life, so all those who profess that Islam is true, should enjoin this happiness towards all. Let us pray for hidayat.
I am giving some guidelines here for those who want to apply the divine system in their daily lives.
As a Muslim, you should know the dualistic aspect of life
When you learn about doing good, you should also know its opposite
What is evil? Allah says in the Quran: Do good and prohibit evil
If you know the forces of good, you must know what is Taghut
The concept of taghut does not mean shaytan as many people think it is. Taghut is a system which is built on evil and claim to have divine powers. Pharaon [see surah Qasas] established his kingdom on the system of taghut and he claimed himself god/divinity and used sorcery/sihr/magic to control his people
today, there are many false preachers who pretend to be scholars, muftis and so forth, and they use evil power to control people, to bring them into their submission. This is taghut because they use their power to bring people to slavery and people are taking them as gods, worshiping them and seeling intercessions through them.
May Allah have mercy upon us, forgive us and protect us from any evil forces

The answer to this is the Quran

Do you sincerely, honestly know the power of the Quran?

Many Muslims see the Quran only as a message addressed to mankind
They cannot see the powerful effect the Quran brings upon the soul, body and mind
Yes, if your soul is restless, read the Quran or listen to it attentively until you are peaceful again
Yes, if you suffer from pain, from physical pain and sicknesses, listen carefully and persistently to the Quran, read it and feel the extraordinary change
The Qur’an has unlimited energy to cleanse you, to purify you, to quench you, to strengthen you… to guide you, to change your mindset, to bring awareness and consciousness to you. In other words, the Qur’an is meant to reprogram your thoughts and your habits towards righteousness – Author Ammaara Uddeen

Sorcery – an evil action that can endanger your whole life

Sihr – sorcery-magic-fortunetellers-kahin-magician
 
Islam’s position on sorcery for both the one who practises magic and the one who believes in sorcery can be summed up as unlawful acts. Indeed, the magicians and those who visit them, believe in them, ask favour from them, are all in shirk. 
 
In short, sorcery is absolutely forbidden.
 
“And indeed they knew that the buyers of it (magic) would have no share in the Hereafter. And how bad indeed was that for which they sold their own selves, if they but knew.” (Quran 2:102)
 “Whoever goes to a fortune-teller or soothsayer and believes what he says has disbelieved in that which was revealed to Muhammad.” Abu Daud
 
Sorcery is performed with the aid of the Jinn. You take the jinn as your associate in performing evil.
Many so-called Muslim men and women frequently visit the magicians, [the witchcraft, the kahins, the sorcerer] in order to redress a situation, according to their ignorance
 
Among the main reasons:
1) Most of them practise sorcery  for love affairs, either to destroy a family or to make someone love them
2) To get a job, to get a good marriage proposal
3) To get promotion at work
4) To punish or take revenge upon someone who has been disloyal to them
5) Mother-in-law: to get rid of her son’s wife
6) Second wife: to kick first wife out, and to take the first place
7) Wife: to make husband blindly in love
8) Husband: to make wife blindly in love
Very often, jealousy, envy, hatred, frustration, revenge and ignorance are the seeds to sorcery. People with envy cannot accept that someone else is above them, so they try by evil means to control them, to destroy their partners, to overpower their victims. Sorcery is not only used by ignorant uneducated people; it is used often by intellectuals who seek power and who to control their partners at work.
This destructive tool is condemned by Islam as it is a test for those who perform it and for their victims. Victims can see their lives ruined in a short time without ever realising what has produced in their lives that has brought so much destruction, chaos and confusion. Nothing seems to work but in reality, a jinn or several jinns have been paid to put an end to the development of your progress.
It’s over, nobody wants to hear from you. Everybody seems to have forgotten your name and your identity.
You suffer an indescribable pain and your enemy succeeds unnaturally unfairly.
Many use jinns to bring sicknesses and diseases such as cancer, blood problem, cracking  and so forth and no doctor can be of any help.
There are many movies which promote sorcery and sorcerer’s acts. In many cartoons, children are brainwashed since their tender age about the power of sorcery and magics. Many parents are not even aware of this threat and allow their children to sit for hours in front of the television and watch evil.
singers, actors and actresses often promote sorcery in their songs and films. While people like to identify themselves with their favorite actors or actresses, they often fall into their traps.
According to you, where is fairness? where is justice? If someone can have total control on your life while you are not aware of it and you are making every effort to succeed and someone else is using magic to control you and to win over you, do you think this person deserves your respect and your love?
How many lives have been marred by sorcerers? Sorcerers do not believe in God. They have made a pact to shaytan, worshipping him as their patrons. May Allah protect us always from them
Qul Rabbi aouthu bika min hamazatish shayatin wa aouthu bika rabbi ayyadurun [S23:97-98]
Sorcerers and those who believe in them, work with them, consult them….all of them will be doomed except if they have time to repent.

What is death?

Muslims and non Muslims often ask: what is death?

Every human being should be concerned with death because every soul must taste death. Death is only a short passage/transition from the material world to the next world

The soul leaves the material body to enter another dimension.

So, we only taste death and we do not continue to die.

this subject is very important to reflect because it will help you change your perspective of life itself.

Why does God [Allah] create death? What is the purpose of death? What happened to the dead?

“Every soul shall have a taste of death: and only on
the Day of Judgement shall you be paid your full
recompense.” (Quran 3:185) “Every soul shall have a
taste of death: and We test you by evil and by good,
by way of trial. To Us must you return.” (21:35)
“Every soul shall have a taste of death: In the end to
Us shall you be brought back.” (29:57)

 

Consider the death of a faithful believer and the image you get from watching him. Consider the death of a disobedient person who has done many wrongs in his life….compare them. You will be able to do that if you are yourself a spiritual person, otherwise, you will not see Truth because your senses are veiled

 

 

 

The history of Islam : an heritage

 

The scientific study of the Bees in the Quran

Bees: Surah an Nahl

Allah the Almighty created creatures within which there are endless Divine wonders like bees for example.

Bees are social insects which have an outstanding system:

In the bee society there is a queen, worker bees, females and male bees, cleaner bees to clean the hive, others to buff and polish the walls and there are guards whose mission is to look out and they even have a password and every bee that fails to say that password will be killed, so if you watch a billion bees at day light, you should know that each one of them will dwell in its hive otherwise it will be killed.

The password is changed from time to time:

There are bees that are workers whose mission is to refresh the air of the hive’s cells, and they do that by flapping their wings on the entrance of every cell. In winter on the other hand, worker bees seal the hive openings to keep the hive warm inside. There are the maid bees whose mission is to serve the queen and they make the royal jelly especially for her.

Dear brothers, there are scout bees whose mission is to find the fields in order to collect nectar from flowers and after they find the suitable field they go back to the other bees and they dance in a special way to give the other bees the direction to that field, how far it is and how rich it is with flowers, all that is said through dancing.
The bee’s speed is 60 kilometers per hour when it heads towards the field, but when it comes back to the hive carrying the nectars its speed slows down to 30kilometers per hour.

Honey is a cure for people:

In the most advanced trucks they mix the components of construction while the truck is moving.

In Australia, the giant companies take the raw materials on giant ships and they manufacture Aluminum on the ship to be sold (as a final product) in Cyprus.

Bees also have the same techniques, for the bees usually mark the flowers they collected so that other bees won’t waste time going to those flowers, then upon collecting the nectars they start condensing them finishing (bythat) the first stage of making honey on their way back to the hive.

Talking about bees needs more time:

If one bee is assigned to make one kilogram of honey, it needs to fly 400 thousand kilometers which equals traveling around the earth 10 times, needless to say that honey is a pharmacy unto itself for it heals man from diseases as we were told by Allah the Almighty in Quran:

﴾ wherein is healing for men ﴿

[An-Nahl, 69]

The useful function of honey:

By Allah dear brothers, everything Allah created has two functions, the first one is to be useful to man and the second one guides him to Allah, and while the west excels in the first mission, Muslims excels in the second one and it is rather more beneficial to make use of them both.

Accordingly if we take honey, it has two functions, the first one is ahealing one whereas the second one is to guide people to know Allah after pondering over the bees’ minute system.

If a mouse enters the hive, the cleaner bees are too small to kill it considering its size and weight, but instead they wrap it with wax.
If we want to talk about the amazing skills of the bees in building their hive, and if we want to compare it to man’s skills in tiling the ground, usually the manager instructs his workers to do this and that and they won’t be able to come up with the same tiles’ size unless they all use a sample tile in order to cut the others according to it, however the bees build the wax cells in hexagonal shapes and at the end all the cells will be alike to the micron, not to mention that the hexagonal shape is the best shape for storage as it has the lesser space between cells and it has obtuse angles which allows more amount of honey to be stored besides making the honey accessible to bees.

The bees start building the wax cells from the outer line of the hive towards the middle and they meet at the center. These skills are beyond man’s abilities. Allah the Almighty says:

﴾But are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, ﴿

[Al-An’am, 38]

The Quran mentions that the working bee is the female bee:

Again there are the scout bees, the worker bees, the dancing bees, the queen, queen maid bees, the royal jelly and the males.

The queen put eggs of male and female bees and queens, and the latter are put in a special place where queens “to be” are kept, and the males are kept in a special place, so how would the queen know which is which.

The males’ function is to fertilize the queen:

Allah says:

﴾ And your Lord inspired the bee, saying: “Take ﴿

[An-Nahl, 68]

The Arabic word“Itakhithee” (take) is addressed to the female bee, so how would the prophet PBUH know that the worker bees who make honey are females? Male bees don’t make honey and it is the female’s mission:

﴾And your Lord inspired the bee, saying: “Take you habitations in the mountains ﴿

[An-Nahl, 68]

Allah the Almighty therefore addresses the female bee which makes the honey, and this is but a scientific inimitability of the Quran.
Pondering over Allah’s creations guides man to the truth:

By Allah dear brothers, if only one reads a book about the bees, his heart will be filled with fear of Allah the Almighty and he might shed tears.

By Allah the only Deity, if man did that he would fulfill the purpose of creating honey and bees (i.e. Knowing Allah and fearing Him).
On the other hand, some people eat honey till they are fed up without even noticing the guiding function of honey, and by that they are nullifying the purpose of creating honey and bees.

This is supported by another Hadith in which the prophet PBUH said upon seeing the new moon:
((A new moon of benevolence and righteousness))

[Sunan Abi Dawood by Qatadah]

This Hadith indicates the two functions of everything Imentioned earlier: the first. function of anything is to be useful to man, and the second function is to guide him to Allah the Almighty
