    Saudi To Penalize Men Found Beating Their Wives

    15 April 2014

    Saudi Arabia will implement next week a law to help curb domestic violence in the kingdom, with men found guilty of beating their wives facing payment of compensation and possible prison terms, Arabiya.net has learned.

    The minimum and maximum amounts of compensation for the offence were set at 5,000 Riyals ($1,340) and 50,000 Riyals ($13,000) respectively. Husbands found beating their wives could also face a minimum of one month prison and a maximum jail sentence of one year. Repeat offenders will face double the punishment.

    Criminalizing the behavior falls under the umbrella of a recently introduced system for the protection against domestic violence in the kingdom.

    Dr. Mohammad al-Harbi, the general director of Social Protection at the Social Affairs Ministry, told AlArabiya.net that the new system was "developed by jurists to ensure the highest standards."

    "Over a period of three months we held workshops in different areas in the country with participation from those involved in human rights and we also tasked a consultancy firm to prepare the [system] so that the ministry is not accused of having put in place everything," he added.

    He stressed that the ministry did not "interfere in drafting the regulations of the system."

    "The jurists and human rights groups set them," he added.

    Legislation aimed at protecting women, children and domestic workers against domestic violence was first passed in Saudi Arabia in late August.

    The "Protection from Abuse" law was hailed as a landmark step in the kingdom which has faced criticism for not doing enough to prevent domestic violence.

    Husband To Be Jailed, Flogged For Slapping Wife


    Judge says verdict based on need to respect spouse

    By Habib Toumi - November 13, 2015

    A court in Eastern Saudi Arabia has sentenced a Saudi husband to one week in jail and to 30 lashes for slapping his wife and spitting on her.

    The case was taken to the public prosecution by wife's brother who reported that her husband had an argument with her and slapped her twice and spat on her.

    Summoned by the police, the husband admitted he had abused his wife, arguing that he was angry with her for leaving the house several times, Saudi news site Al Marsad reported.

    The case was referred to the court and the judge ruled that the husband had violated the Islamic principle of respecting people and not hitting them.

    In his verdict, the judge asked the husband to give a pledge not to slap or spit on his wife again.

    The judge also told the wife that she should not leave the house without informing her husband.

    Over 500,000 Saudis Beaten by Wives


    Complaints revealed by Riyadh-based Waei Centre for Social Advice

    November 02, 2014

    More than half a million Saudi men have revealed that they are systematically beaten up by their wives
    , but most of them will not resort to court.

    The complaints by the husbands were revealed by the Riyadh-based Waei Centre for Social Advice, which said it received six new complaints on Monday.

    "We have received more than 557,000 complaints by Saudi men who are beaten up by their wives and needed advice," the centre's manager Sheikh Adel Al Mutawa said.

    "Most of them do not want their names to be known and want to keep the issue as a secret. They just do not want to take their wives to court to avert embarrassment," he told the Saudi Arabic language daily 'Sabq'.

    comments:

    The west narrative is that women are abused and don't have any rights in the Muslim countries, especially Saudi Arabia. As these news stories show that women have more rights than men over there. Women can beat up their husbands without any penalty and if the husband fights back then he is punished by the law.

    Feminist Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy Gets Doctor Fired for Sending FB Request to Her Sister

    By News Desk - October 27, 2017


    A physician who tended to the sister of Emmy award-winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid at a Karachi hospital has been fired from his job for “disregarding his ethical values and showing unprofessional behavior”.

    Ms. Chinoy posted a tweet on October 23, narrating that her sister went to Aga Khan Hospital, and the doctor who treated her at the emergency section later sent her friend request on Facebook. The filmmaker termed it “harassment” and insisted that she will report it to the relevant authorities. Subsequent sacking of the doctor, by the hospital, has lead to a huge reaction against Oscar winner, Sharmeen. Most internet users (now more than 30 million use Facebook across Pakistan) vehemently reject Sharmeen’s definition that a man merely sending a “Facebook Friends Request” is causing harassment. But they are also infuriated by what they perceive as Sharmeen’s arrogance, class consciousness and her open contempt towards Pakistan.



    If Sharmeen’s attitude, reflected in her tweets, was seen as a display of class consciousness, arrogance and contempt for ordinary citizens and Pakistan then her definitions that “Facebook Friends Request” constitutes “rape” made her look to most people like a shallow pseudo-intellectual borrowing latest western terms to show her power.

    This post from Sharmeen’s Facebook account read ” it’s a sexual harassment if a male sends another female a friend request. It amounts to rape. How come these men don’t send Facebook requests to fat women? If any male sends a friend request, he is simply taking advantage of your body. Stay safe, women need to stick together.”

    To many her lines, “how come these men don’t send Facebook requests to fat women?” were symptomatic of her disturbed state of mind; after all, “Who is the fat woman men are not sending ‘Facebook friends request?” Many commenting on Facebook therefore wondered if Sharmeen’s reaction represented a siblings jealousy. After all how old is her sister? and why Sharmeen is acting, like a patriarch, on her behalf. Some wondered if Sharmeen’s attitude and ruthless power display represented a “role reversal”, and she acting like a ‘husband’ and ‘father’, like a traditional patriarch of an eastern society, to her sister.

    Sharmeen’s feminist plea to women, “If any male sends a friend request, he is simply taking advantage of your body. Stay safe, women need to stick together.” failed to resonate with young Pakistani women, most of whom were shocked by what they perceived as her self-righteousness, her arrogance and sense of power.
    Many thought that Sharmeen was trying to seek publicity by fitting herself into the ongoing “me too” campaign launched by feminists across the west.

    Prominent TV Anchor, Moeed Pirzada, who often retweets Sharmeen’s tweets and her news was visibly upset by her attitude:




    But if Moeed Pirzada thought that Sharmeen was over reacting, he also hinted subtly, without naming her, in another follow up tweet that in this case “power” lied with Oscar winner, celebrity, Sharmeen and that “harassment” like “rape” is an act of power – not sex.




    So to many, it was in fact Sharmeen who did the harassment by abusing her power, her position in the society and exercised that within the context of under developed Pakistan where the poor middle class doctor had no relief against her international aura. Could she demand any action from Facebook against the doctor? Why was her sister running an open Facebook account where any one could send “friends request”?

    Notables like Ali Moeen Nawazish posted his message on his Facebook account condemning the famous filmmaker for taking such extreme steps.

    While few have supported her actions saying that it is highly unprofessional to have a doctor search one’s files to get data to interact with a patient in personal space – others wondered that how do we know what kind of interaction took place between Sharmeen’s sister and the doctor? And “Facebook Friends Request” does not need much of a confidential information; in most instances names suffice. In any case, “Friends Request” can be turned down, and Facebook has an elaborate system of complaints to deal with issues of harassment – if something is really “harassment” – Why would someone modern and worldly like Sharmeen, not leave the decision on Facebook, why she must act like an eastern patriarch?. Facebook debates resonated with such questions.

    Many have thus commented that it was just a facebook request that could have been easily ignored. However, the twice Academy award winner is yet to comment on this controversy.



    Even Waqar Zaka, a much controversial figure jumped in to respond to Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy. He promised to get that doctor a much better job.

    comments:

    This fat feminist is jealous of her sister getting attention, as are fat feminists usually. More importantly, this is the same feminist who made a documentary full of lies to vilify Pakistan and all the men in Pakistan and got a western movie award for being their puppet.

    This is the same feminist who promised an acid victim to be in her documentary and speak against men in exchange for a house, money, and medical treatment, but abandoned her as soon as the documentary was done.

    These kind of celeb feminists just want attention and will create issues to get attention, even accusing innocent men of rape and sexual harassment. Funny how she accuses the doctor of such things yet shameless hugs a white, non-Muslim, non-relative stranger man. Such is the hypocrisy of her kind.

    Feminist vs Halal Feminist : All men are trash



    Except the Prophet of Islam?

    So, she still includes from the As-Salaf, the 2nd two of the first 3 generations of Islam, called by the Prophet (S) as the best generations; and she includes all the previous prophets sent by Allah. And she includes her father, grandfather, and every male ancestor because of whose sperm she exists.


    These trash are the "Muslim" feminists.

    Muslimah Against Feminism

    I don't understand why people don't understand that the premise of feminism is rooted in female supremacy. In it's world there is no good or bad, right or wrong. There's only one rule. One thumb rule. It is how a woman *feels* about things. A woman's right is right, a woman's wrong is also right. If a woman feels positive about something, it's good. If she feels negative about it, it's bad. That's it. There's no law, divine or man-made, that is a basis or a guiding light. Hence, they say "everyone's feminism is different".

    One of the contemporary versions of feminism that has an Islamic logo etched on it is also guilty of the same. It may be presented wrapped up in hijaab with the ayahs of Qur'an beautifully drawn over it. It may smell of Arabian perfumes & baby oil and it may taste like dates & zamzam water. But make no mistake... Allah is not the Allah here. A woman is her own Allah. Prophets (pbut) are not the guides, teachers & father figures. How can 'deadbeat dads' be? A woman is her own Prophet, her own teacher, her own philosopher. Her *feelings* are her guiding light.

    The problem with traditional Islam was that no woman or man could override the divine law. Islamic feminism solved this by allowing a woman, only & exclusively a woman, the freedom to override it... if she *feels* like

    - Muslimah Against Feminism

    ----

    1. Feminism in the West is an offshoot of liberalism and secularism, and capitalism (even those who think they're Marxists are within the capitalist dynamic). These allowed for corporations to profit off of sex as well.

    2. Porn represents and manipulates a few things. One, profitting off of the male libido. Two, tying sexual outlets to convenience (even more than fast food). And three, exacerbating the interplay between these phenomena by worsening real relationships between men and women.

    3. Feminism has *definitely* contributed to the latter. It has confused genders about *real gender functions*. Consequently, it's messed up the very basis for attraction (ex. Emasculated males think women are like men, and so if they just dress and look well, they'll draw and keep girls, and then reality hits them that it's not like this -- this is just one simplified ex of HUNDREDS). It's also neuteured males of traditional male values via changing social dynamics like feminizing classrooms and punishing boys for being boys. They get diagnosed with adhd because they're different from girls. They hear male demonizing messages from childhood. They witness zero accountability for females + endless sympathy for females and maximal accountability for males + little to no empathy for males.

    They therefore end up cucked, socially incompetent, frustrated, directionless and isolated.

    In Japan, this is especially happening.

    What's the consequence?

    Porn usage is going sky high. Much more than before. The immediate gratification it provides, is only exacerbated by contant stimulation and manipulation by public sexualized expression esp by females who are taught that their dress has no bearing on males and it doesn't matter if it does or not. Males are just expected to put up with it and not look in some cases even.

    So, couple all that together and you have a great recipe for porn addiction in guys who rather wouldn't do the hard work of learning how to socialize with women in our toxic, anti-male, individualistic, and consumerist culture.

    Aka it's not JUST feminism, but it's definitely a VITAL ingredient in the formula that leads to the current state of affairs.

    You have movements like Your Brain on Porn and NoFap that are tied with self improvement for males, that try to curb this problem, but when guys constantly get the short end of the stick in relationships (while girls often get more cash, far greater chances in court if a marriage goes south, easier times getting new males to provide and stimulate her by using her body and sexual appeal over the male libido), expect only more to end up hooked on detrimental drugs like porn.

    In Japan, it's so bad, some guys are so emasculated that they live in their rooms like losers and marry virtual characters. They often have domineering mothers, passive or no father figures, and a climate that doesn't support them developing into proactive masculine men.

    Yvonne Ridley the Misandrist Feminist



    Once again this horrible women is at it. Spitting her venom at an elderly Alim in Bangladesh who advised that children should not be given mobile phones. This miserable feminist likes to look down on Muslims.

    There is nothing wrong in what the sheik said. Many intelligent non-Muslim experts agree on the harms of cellphones in the hands of kids.

    Children should not be allowed smartphones until they are 16, says school behaviour expert

    Femtard Muppets sure like to find reasons to attack Islamic scholars for saying what western experts have already proven.

    Muslims do need to put our house in order. It's about time the we took care of this feminism cancer spreading within our communities by these misandrist retards.

    Feminist Yvonne Ridley Supporting Homosexuality



    Christmas is a celebration of Christ the one who said he came to enforce the law of the previous prophets, the law that gave the death penalty for homosexuality. Something that Islam also teaches. Yet, here is a feminist pretending to be a Muslim criticizing the Christians for following their religion, and promoting something considered a major sin in Islam.

    This is what kuffar feminists believe and what so called "Muslim" feminists believe as well. The comment reply to her perfectly explains this oppression.



    This (video) is the kind of oppression the Men, especially Muslim men, having being doing to women for centuries.

    LOLLIPOP SISTERS

    by Muslimah Against Feminism

    What is up with Islamic feminists' obsession with sex?

    They just can't stop talking about it. Sexuality, gratification, "we want it too", sex education, use of sex toys, etc.

    I find it bewildering how they claim to be Islamic & traditional and still do it on public forums. What kind of traditional women have detailed discussion & debates on social media, with random men, on such topics? (That too in a quite uninhibited manner). What kind of traditional women are not mindful of the fact that their fathers, brothers, & sons can see their fantasy stuff!? And what is wrong with the gheerah of their men that they play along?

    I think it's feminism's attempt to normalize indecency. They just sell it covered up in a deeni, educational package, pretending to free women from their repression by the patriarchy. They know fully well that most of their followers are young sisters with impressionable minds. So, they try to appeal to people's shahwaat (that's already been stirred up by popular culture) giving them a weird kick out of this warped sense of liberation.

    Also, I don't understand how they get away with it all the time. Like, I see feminists who talk about grooming men a lot. They say "I like tattooed, bearded men". Now, take a moment and think about how we, as a community, would react if a popular Muslim brother said "I like curvy women" or "I like breasts". All of us would get together and burn him alive (rightly so). But when a feminist does it, we're somehow okay with it.

    Muslim Feminists

    by Muslimah Against Feminism

    Muslim Feminists obsess over their womanhood. They:

    > Promote gender supremacy, misandry & anti-family sentiments
    > Propagate materialism
    > Go against well established Islamic tenets
    > Break norms of decency specified for their gender
    > Misinterpret the Quran & Hadith
    > Abuse Prophets (as), Sahabaa (r) and classical scholars
    > Work with the enemies of Muslims
    > Support the causes of groups that are against Islamic principles
    > Try to normalise indecency disguising it as sex education
    > Indulge in rigorous self-promotion
    > Occupy themselves with anything and everything that bears no fruit for Muslims in the short or long run.

    If a normal person points out that there's such & such problem with feminism.

    Feminists: "oh! my gawd.. Muslims are dying in Syria but you choose to occupy yourself with this!? shame on you"

    Hypocrisy & dodging tactics at their finest.

    Hijabi Feminists and Christmas

    by Muslimah Against Feminism

    Tis that time of the year when my timeline will be flooded with pics of desi hijaabi girls with their near & dear ones standing in front of illuminated Christmas trees in some shopping mall they visited to enjoy the season's festivities.

    These are the same girls who are busy virtue signalling others, rest of the year, about how we need to go back to *real Islam* in order to get women their Allah-given rights.

    Also those cringey pic captions of "I'm a Muslim & I ♥ Jesus".






    Muslim Feminist Promoting Zinna


    by Umar Shekh

    This is the woman behind the shameless feminist page "The Tempest", the same page that gave tips to Muslim women how to dodge their conservative Desi parents, and have sex with their boyfriends in "safe places ". Utterly disgraceful, and what disappoints me even more, is the fact, that most members of this page are HIJAB WEARING Muslims as I just checked out their team members. They call for ultimate freedom of women along with their sexual freedom. Now I understand, why Muhammad (saw) said that women will form the majority of the adherents of hell, and that they are deficient in the aspects of intelligence and Deen.

    Lies about the Wives of the Prophet Spread by Muslim Feminists

    by Muslimah Against Feminism - January 12, 2016


    A great injustice is being done to the historical figures of Islam, by Muslims themselves! MFs (Muslim feminists) are twisting Islamic history to suit their own desires. They purposefully misinterpret the biographies of the great women of Islam like Khadijah & Aishah
    (may Allah be pleased with them), to justify their own un-Islamic actions. A closer look at history will instantly reveal that what MFs say about them is nothing but oversimplification and lies, bordering on slander. Here is some of what MFs use to justify their secular, liberal Islam:

    "Khadijah was a business-woman!"


    Khadijah
    (may Allah be please with her) was not a business-woman in the modern sense. She owned a business, but she worked from home. She did not work a 9-5 job, she did not have a 'career'. She inherited her business from her father and came from a wealthy family, and that is how she was able to finance her trade. She did not work outside of her home with strange men, like many Muslim women want to do today. Khajidah, in fact, hired men to trade on her behalf. Our Prophet (peace be upon him) was one of those men.

    "Khadijah proposed to the Prophet!"


    Khadijah
    (may Allah be pleased with her) had not even met the Prophet before marriage, who was her employee! Communication regarding work was done through Khadijah's servants and other workers. Khadijah had never seen or spoken to our Prophet, she had only heard of his greatness of character through other people. Her proposal to our Prophet (peace be upon him) was sent indirectly, through her female friend, and was accepted. The marriage was arranged by Khadijah's uncle.

    "Aishah used to teach men!"

    Aishah
    (may Allah be pleased with her) used to teach Hadith inside her home. She did not travel without a mahram, she did not tour the world giving Islamic lectures and attending conferences with men. She did not upload selfies and Youtube videos or give hijab tutorials. Aishah taught men and women inside her home, from behind a veil! Furthermore, the wives of the Prophet were forbidden to marry anyone else after his death, so the risk of temptation and fitnah was non-existent.

    If Khajidah and Aishah
    (may Allah be pleased with them) were alive today, how would they feel about MFs inventing lies against them? Their biographies show that they have nothing to do with MFs. The level of modesty, shyness and piety of these women was exceptional. How can today's Muslim feminists compare themselves to the great women of Islam?

    American Muslims Are Now More Accepting Of Homosexuality Than White Evangelicals

    Queer and Muslim Americans are both marginalized in America - making it crucial to form alliances.

    By Carol Kuruvilla - 08/01/2017

    Anti-Muslim activists often attempt to foment hatred against Muslims by claiming that Islam is inherently anti-queer.

    While homophobia certainly still exists in American Muslim communities, as a whole,
    American Muslims are slowly becoming more accepting of homosexuality.

    And notably, they're doing it at a faster rate than white evangelical Protestants.

    A Pew Research Center survey conducted this year found that
    52 percent of U.S. Muslims say homosexuality should be accepted by society. In contrast, only 34 percent of white evangelical Protestants believed in 2016 that homosexuality should be accepted by society.

    The rate at which white evangelicals are shifting their views is slower than the rate for Muslims. White evangelicals shifted their views by 11 percentage points between 2006 and 2016.
    Muslims' acceptance of homosexuality shot up by 25 percentage points between 2007 and 2017.



    Urooj Arshad, a queer Muslim activist who is a member of the Muslim Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity, told HuffPost that Muslims' support for the LGBTQ community may hinge on a common experience that both groups share ―
    being victims of discrimination. Queer Americans and Muslim Americans have both been harmed in recent years by policies and rhetoric that threaten the safety and wellbeing of their communities. As a result, Arshad said, it isn't surprising to her that Muslims are beginning to accept homosexuality.

    "Since September 11, the Muslim community has been dealing with severe erosion of their civil rights which has made the community more sympathetic to violations of civil rights against other marginalized communities in the U.S.," Arshad told HuffPost.

    At the same time, white evangelical Protestants seem to be blind to the discrimination faced by both groups.

    Evangelical Protestants' Rejection of Queer Rights

    Evangelical Protestants are the largest religious group in America, making up a little more than a quarter of all Americans. And with the election of President Donald Trump, evangelical leaders have gained a significant foothold in the White House.

    Evangelicals are also one of the religious groups most likely to hold negative feelings towards Muslims. Pew surveys have found that half of white evangelicals believe there is a "great deal" or "fair amount" of support for extremism among Muslims living in the U.S ― higher than any of the other religious group surveyed. They tend to believe that Islam encourages violence (63 percent) and that there is a natural conflict between Islam and democracy (72 percent).

    On issues affecting queer people, white evangelicals often stand out from other American religious groups.

    They are the only major religious group that favors allowing small business owners to refuse goods or services to gay and lesbian people on religious grounds (56 percent). And while 63 percent of American adults support same-sex marriage, only 34 percent of white evangelical Protestants say the same.

    Surveys show that
    white evangelical Protestants are more likely to say that Christians face a lot of discrimination in America, than they are to say the same of Muslims. White evangelicals are the least likely religious group to say gay and lesbian Americans confront a lot of discrimination in the U.S.

    While support for marriage equality is rising among younger evangelicals, the group is on the whole still very much against queer rights.

    For Brian McLaren, a progressive Christian author from a conservative evangelical background, these statistics confirm that
    white evangelicals are distinguishing themselves as the "most change-resistant demographic in America." He thinks this resistance to progress stems from evangelicals' belief in the inerrancy of the Bible. He also believes it's a result of the maneuvering of "unofficial evangelical gatekeepers" who are quick to target and cut off both organizations and individuals who depart from conservative interpretations of sexuality.

    "I used to say that Evangelicals are conservative. But increasingly, I think there is a growing regressive wing of Evangelicalism that wants to return to an idealized (and fictionalized) past ... a white Christian America where patriarchy reigns and those who don't conform 'know their place,'" he told HuffPost. "Sadly,
    being anti-LGBT and anti-Muslim are becoming litmus tests in many Evangelical congregations and organizations."




    The Growing Impact and Influence of Young Muslims

    Shifting attitudes towards homosexuality in American Muslim communities have been driven by a few key groups.
    Muslim women's acceptance has increased by 31 percentage points over the last 10 years. College graduates have bumped up 32 points in the same time period.

    Muslim activists and scholars are particularly noticing the
    change in mindset happening among younger Muslims. Millennial Muslims are more likely to be accepting of homosexuality (60 percent) than Muslims of older generations. The youth's acceptance grew by 27 percentage points between 2007 and 2017.

    This may be related to the fact that American Muslim adults are significantly younger than the overall U.S. adult population. About 35 percent of American Muslims are between 18 and 29 years old. Twenty-one percent of the general U.S. population falls in that age bracket. In general, younger Americans tend to have more accepting views of homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

    "
    Millennial Muslims are very much part of the larger American youth population who are more tolerant and loving of queer friends and family," said Mariam Durrani, an anthropologist at Hamilton College who studies Muslim American.

    "As part of a marginalized and discriminated population, Muslim youth are more likely to adopt solidarity positions with other marginalized and discriminated communities."

    In addition, Durrani points out, younger Muslims are witnessing
    leaders within their community stepping forward in support of queer rights. There are faith leaders who openly support gay youth, mosques and community centers where queer Muslims are welcomed, and Muslim leaders and entertainers who are publicly out.

    "All of this shows that being queer is part of the American Muslim community and youth, as usual, are the most progressive in this regard," Durrani said.

    Debate Within American Muslim Communities on Homosexuality


    Arshad said that queer Muslims have become "cautiously optimistic" in recent years about their acceptance within American Muslim communities.

    "I know that we have come a long way and that now we at least have some space within the mainstream Muslim civil rights movement and many influential allies. I do think there is still a tremendous amount of work to be done especially to create a safe space for LGBT Muslims within the Muslim community," she told HuffPost.

    While Muslims have signaled an openness to supporting LGBTQ Americans in general, Arshad said some are hesitant about offering that same level of support to queer Muslims.

    "What we see is more of a willingness to support the mainstream non Muslim LGBT community but when it comes to LGBT Muslims, people get uncomfortable."

    Tensions about Islam's acceptance of homosexuality surfaced this June at a convention held by the Islamic Society of North America, a national association of Muslim organizations. At last year's convention, organizers included a panel that, for the first time, focused on LGBTQ issues. This year,
    Muslims for Progressive Values, an advocacy group, partnered with the Human Rights Campaign to set up a joint booth at the convention. Staff at the booth distributed brochures calling for female imams and LGBTQ-inclusive prayer spaces.

    A few hours after setting up, MPV claims ISNA organizers asked that the booth be shut down, reportedly because MPV's mission was "antithetical to [ISNA's] beliefs." The HRC confirmed to HuffPost in an email that the joint booth was expelled from ISNA's convention.

    "It was OK for HRC, a mainstream LGBT rights group to exhibit but because HRC was co-tabling with Muslims for Progressive Values, which advocates for LGBT Muslims, both were asked to leave," Arshad told HuffPost.

    HuffPost sent requests for comment to ISNA, but did not hear back.

    Despite the controversy, MPV president Ani Zonneveld said she was heartened by the positive responses the booth got during the brief time it was set up at the ISNA convention.

    "Many who came to our booth were absolutely on board," Zonneveld told HuffPost.

    Since MPV's founding 10 years ago, Zonneveld said she's seen less resistance and more open conversations within the American Muslim community on topics like LGBTQ rights.

    "We've also seen traditional imams and community leaders forced into these conversations by members of their own, often younger, congregations," Zonneveld said.

    Arshad said she found the data from the Pew survey particularly encouraging because of how anti-Muslim activists often use LGBTQ rights issues as an excuse to discriminate against Muslims. She pointed to how President Donald Trump used the Pulse nightclub massacre in Florida to drum up support for his proposed Muslim ban.

    "As a queer Muslim at these intersections, I am constantly aware of how the right wing uses any opportunity to demonize Muslims and hypocritically uses LGBT rights as a proxy to do that," Arshad said. "Meanwhile this government's own record of rights for LGBT people is terrifying. Now more than ever, we need dialogue and brave spaces to bridge our various communities and this trend within the Muslim community is promising."

    This was started by homosexual Muslims but it really got a big boost from feminism. Feminists preach this stuff and it was/is Muslim women who become feminists who preach and believe this. Just take a look at the Women's March that was held in D.C. It's leader was Linda Sarour, a Muslim Palestinian feminist, who supports LGBT and works with them. Then there are the other Muslim women who do not openly come out as feminists but support feminism in everything. Homosexual Muslims had no power before, but now feminist Muslims and young ignorant millennial Muslims are pushing for LGBT and going against Islam. It's not allowed for Muslims to even align with such groups even if they're fighting for the same cause (rights). These fools either don't know or don't care that they they will be resurrected with these group on Qiyama and punished alongside them.

    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "... cursed is the one who has intercourse with an animal, cursed is the one who does the action of the people of Loot."(Narrated by Ahmad, 1878. This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami', no. 5891).

    "The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: 'Whoever imitates a people is one of them.'" (Narrated by Abu Dawood

    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: 'Whoever you find doing the deed of the people of Loot, kill the one who does it and the one to whom it is done." (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1456; Abu Dawood, 4462; Ibn Maajah, 2561. This hadeeth was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami', no. 6589).

    Allah says in the Quran:

    "And (remember) Loot (Lot), when he said to his people: 'Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the 'Aalameen (mankind and jinn)? Verily, you practice your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a people transgressing beyond bounds (by committing great sins)'" [Quran 7:80-81]

    "Verily, We sent against them a violent storm of stones (which destroyed them all), except the family of Loot (Lot), them We saved in the last hour of the night" [Quran 54:34]

    "And (remember) Loot (Lot), when he said to his people: 'You commit Al‑Faahishah (sodomy the worst sin) which none has preceded you in (committing) it in the 'Aalameen (mankind and jinn)'" [Quran 29:28]

    "And (remember) Loot (Lot), We gave him Hukm (right judgement of the affairs and Prophethood) and (religious) knowledge, and We saved him from the town (folk) who practiced Al‑Khabaa'ith (evil, wicked and filthy deeds). Verily, they were a people given to evil, and were Faasiqoon (rebellious, disobedient to Allaah)" [Quran 21:74]

    "And (remember) Loot (Lot)! When he said to his people, 'Do you commit Al‑Faahishah (evil, great sin, every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse, sodomy) while you see (one another doing evil without any screen). Do you practice your lusts on men instead of women? Nay, but you are a people who behave senselessly.' There was no other answer given by his people except that they said: 'Drive out the family of Loot (Lot) from your city. Verily, these are men who want to be clean and pure!'. So We saved him and his family, except his wife. We destined her to be of those who remained behind. And We rained down on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned" [Quran 27:54-58]

    Marriage Fraud 1

    by Muslimah Against Feminism

    Warning to Brothers

    A growing fraud has come to light.

    What happens is when a Muslim man, who's doing well financially, looks for a wife, he is met by a "good" Muslim family with a 'mashaAllah-girl interested in him. The next thing he knows, the family seems overly impressed with him & want to get the marriage done as soon as possible. They ask him for money to take care of expenses with the promise to return later. Plus, the girl is also someone who values herself highly so she doesn't accept 'mahr' bids below $10,000.

    After the man ends up paying everything, the girl runs back to her family within 2 to 3 weeks of nikaah. She seeks divorce cuz the man was abusive to her. Add in other made-up accusations. Her family supports her and threatens the guy to let her go. It depends upon the situation whether any further transactions in money takes place i.e. how much more can the family blackmail the guy.

    The lesson to be learnt here is if you're a male with a good bank balance looking to complete half his deen and you see a pretty & pristine sister offering to fall into your arms ready for some shaka laka boom boom.... STOP right there. Use your head. Perform your due diligence. Get other friends & family involved and ask proper questions. Please don't just rush into things.



    Marriage Fraud 2

    by Muslimah Against Feminism
    There's this *undercover industry* of feminism in the Western world (& even in the East) where a woman gets along with a Man in order to get married. Post marriage she has a couple of kids with him. Then, the game begins.

    The purpose is to hold the kids hostage and make that man live according to her whims. If he puts one foot out of line, she threatens to call the cops on him which would mean taking the kids away, him losing his job, getting excommunicated from the masjid, parting with half his wealth & income, paying alimony & child support apart from going to jail for domestic violence.

    If you're wondering how a man can be framed when he hasn't done anything then you need to take a break and look into how things work in (say) America. Understand how the police treats a man, how the courts judge him and how the entire system is rigged against him simply because he's Male. Don't believe me. Take a look yourself.

    This is a great business model for women who have no talent or skill to work or don't want to work. They easily get financial support (read: alms) from various organizations, muslim & non alike. They don't even spend a penny on legal fees as it gets taken care of. Basically life becomes comfortable for free and as time passes they get to play the victim card more & more till their facebook page or blog kicks off and they get recognized as activists, social workers and even role models for our younger girls.

    Aaaaand this is just in gist. The details are even uglier.


    comments:

    Women really don't want men to marry them, they are doing everything they can to drive men away and then they start crying about "Qawwams" and Muslim men needing to help the ummah by marrying these losers.

    Taking Off Hijab Party

    by Daniel Haqiqatjou - 1/30/2018

    A brother messaged me the other day asking advice about how to approach a "Taking Off Hijab Party" that was being held for a Muslima who decided to stop wearing hijab. This party was being held by Muslim college students for the sister to support her and celebrate her decision. (It goes without saying that non-mahram men and women were invited to join the mixed festivities.)

    Obviously, I was shocked. Have we really gotten to this point of confusion? The scary part is, these are not people who are antagonistic to Islam or even the hijab, necessarily. These are young Muslims who probably consider themselves fully invested in their Muslim identity. Maybe they are very active at their masjid and with the community. Maybe they even consider themselves to be "unapologetically" Muslim. Wallahi it would be much less troubling if these were Muslims that had little investment in being Muslim.

    Now, it is easy to think a "Taking Off Hijab Party" is Islamically justified if you have been fed a steady stream of ambiguities and outright misguidance that has been coming from certain prominent "traditional" Muslim sources over the past 16 years. I can just imagine the series of questions these confused youth asked themselves in deciding to have this party:

    "Well, in Islam, shouldn't we respect everyone's personal choices about religion? And, as Muslims, shouldn't we respect differences of opinions on religious matters? And shouldn't we support our Muslim sisters no matter what? And, in Islam, isn't everything allowed unless it is explicitly haram? And shouldn't we be merciful and welcoming no matter what? And don't we all have sins (even though, who is to say that not wearing hijab is even a sin because Islam is not a monolith and there are different non-patriarchal interpretations)? And didn't the Prophet, peace be upon him, accept people no matter what? And doesn't the Quran say that there is no compulsion in religion? And aren't we supposed to spread positivity in Islam? And isn't it wrong to impose hijab on anyone in the first place? etc., etc., etc."

    Welcome to the new normal. This is NOT an isolated event. Over the past few years, I have been hearing about many similar disasters happening among youth who, again, are very committed to their "Muslim identity." But clearly, that means absolutely nothing in terms of understanding Islam or being devoted to the normative tradition of Islam.

    But we really shouldn't be surprised.

    This is the natural result of dressing up liberal-secular-feminist hegemony in Islamic garb and selling it to the community as "authentic Islam."

    When will our community leaders start to take seriously the mortal threat that these modern ideologies pose to the iman of our children and ourselves? Are they waiting for their own daughters and sons to organize "Taking Off Hijab Parties"? How about "Leaving Islam Parties"?

    comments:

    This is what they are learning in colleges now from their liberalism and feminism. Your "choice" to do whatever you want is more important than what Islam says. Supporting evil instead of joining good is more important. What's next? coming out (being gay) party? Losing virginity party? leaving Islam party?

    "And let there arise from you a group of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful." (Quran 3:104)

    Feminist Linda Sarsour Accused Of Enabling Sexual Assault Of Female Employee

    Feminist activist and Women's March organizer, Linda Sarsour, has been accused of enabling the sexual assault of a female employee who worked for her in 2009 at the Arab American Association, two sources "directly familiar" with the matter tell the Daily Caller.

    According to Sarsour's accuser Asmi Fathelbab, a 37 year old New York native and devout Muslim - a man named Majed Seif who lived in the same building as the Arab American Association began stalking Fathelbab. Asmi tells the Daily Caller that one of Seif's favorite activities was "sneaking up on her with a full erection."

    “He would sneak up on me during times when no one was around, he would touch me, you could hear me scream at the top of my lungs. He would pin me against the wall and rub his crotch on me.”

    "depending on what floor I was on, you could hear me scream at the top of my lungs."

    “It was disgusting,” Fathelbab told the Caller. “I ran the youth program in the building and with that comes bending down and talking to small children. You have no idea what it was like to stand up and feel that behind you. I couldn’t scream because I didn’t want to scare the child in front of me. It left me shaking.”

    When Fathelbab went to Linda Sarsour to report the sexual assaults, she was dismissed and shamed. “She [Sarsour] called me a liar because ‘Something like this didn’t happen to women who looked like me,'” Asmi says. “How dare I interrupt her TV news interview in the other room with my ‘lies.'”

    Fathelbab says Sarsour "regularly body-shamed her" and enabled the sexual assaults, and Sarsour threatened to legal and professional damage if she went public with the sexual assault claims. “She told me he had the right to sue me for false claims,” said Asmi, adding that her abuser “had the right to be anywhere in the building he wanted.”

    "I cannot stand by any longer and watch everyone praise a woman that claims to be for women’s rights and someone that fights for women when she herself allowed for abuse to occur to women," wrote Fathelbab. When Fathelbab went to the president of the Arab American Association's board of directors, Ahmed Jaber, he too shut her down.

    “Jaber told me my stalker was a ‘God-fearing man’ who was ‘always at the Mosque,’ so he wouldn’t do something like that,” Fathelbab claims. “He wanted to make it loud and clear this guy was a good Muslim and I was a bad Muslim for “complaining.” -Daily Caller

    In response to these claims, Sarsour attacked Fathelbab - telling her that if she continued to report sexual assaults by Jajed Seif, her allegations would result in disciplinary action. Fathelbab told the Daily Caller that she was once forced to talk to a dectective from the community liaison division about the consequences of making false claims to the authorities.

    Two sources who knew Fathelbab while she was employed with the Arab American Association told the Daily Caller that Asmi would return from work "emotionally distressed and in a panic," describing it as an "unsafe" work environment. Another source who has worked with the Arab American Association for 12 years and spoke on the condition of anonymity said that Sarsour was "militant against other women," and that they remember witnessing Fathelbab being harassed in the building.

    “They made it about her weight, saying she was not attractive enough to be harassed and then swept it under the rug,” the source said. “It was Linda Sarsour, Ahmad Jaber and Habib Joudeh who took care of it.” Habib Joudeh is the vice president of the Arab American Association of New York. -DC

    Fathelbab says that she's now unemployable as a result of going public with her claims.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-...emale-employee


    Sarsour has called the accusations “a right wing attack” and “smear campaign.” Sarsour said that no such assault took place and Fathelbab exaggerated the incident. “The exact words were, ‘He makes me feel uncomfortable,’” Sarsour told Buzzfeed. “There was nothing about touching or groping. There’s no evidence, no email she can pull out where she ever gave those claims to us.”

    Sarsour tweeted that Fathelbab's claims was just one of many in the "Newest waves of attacks [against Sarsour.] Every woman has a right to her story and I have a right to defend myself, my character and my commitment to women. This was a new low."

    In a tweet, Fathelbab said, "For the record, I did not get paid for my story, I am neither right wing nor left wing, I am a real person, I am a woman, I am Muslim. This all actually happened to me, whether you believe it or not based on politics is not how humans should come to a conclusion on any topic."

    On Twitter, supporters of Sarsour have come out in full force against Fathelbab, calling her a liar and accusing her of fabricating the story for political reasons. Some of the Twitter attacks have said Fathelbab is anti-Islam, a charge she vehemently denies. “I’m Muslim, and I’ve studied Islam. Nowhere in there [the Quran] does it say you’re against the religion if you stand up for yourself,” she said.

    In response to the wave of critical tweets, Fathelbab tweeted, "So to be clear: 1) Everyone has the right to state their #MeToo story but me. 2) Politics has more say than actual sexual harassment and abuse. 3) If I stand up against Linda Sarsour I am a bad Muslim or against Islam."

    In retaliation for going public with her story, Fathelbab said Sarsour promised to sabotage her career: “She said I will never work in New York City ever again, as long as she lives.” “She’s kept her word. She had me fired from other jobs when she found out where I worked. She has kept me from obtaining any sort of steady employment for almost a decade.”

    Tunisian women march for equal inheritance rights

    by Tarek Amara - March 10, 2018

    Hundreds of women took to the streets in the Tunisian capital on Saturday to demand equal inheritance rights as men, a subject often seen as taboo in the Arab world.



    The North African Muslim country grants women more rights than other countries in the region, and since last year has
    allowed Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men.

    But the protestors marching to the parliament building in Tunis on Saturday said they wanted to be compared with European women and to be entitled to the same inheritance rights.

    Joined by some men, they carried slogans such as “In a civil state I take exactly what you take”, demanding an end to inheritance laws based on Islamic law. This usually grants men the double of what women get.

    “It is true that Tunisian women have more rights compared to other Arab women but
    we want to be compared with European women,” said Kaouther Boulila, an activist.

    “We just want our rights.”

    In August, President Beji Caid Essbsi, a secular politician, set up a committee to draft proposals to advance women’s rights.

    Tunisia has been hailed as the only “Arab spring” success story following political freedoms introduced after the ousting of autocrat Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in 2011.

    Economic growth has been disappointing, however, with high unemployment driving many young Tunisians who had joined the uprising, abroad.



    comments:

    In Islam the man is given twice the share of a woman in inheritance, but the catch is that while the woman gets to keep all of her inheritance for herself the man is required to spend from it on the women under his "responsibility".

    So, are these women going to demand that they too spend their inheritance on the men in their family or that men be not required to spend their inheritance on women?! The answer is: No, they won't.

    These women want equal rights to men, but not equal responsibility.

    They have already gone against Allah's command (as stated in the Quran) of not marrying non-Muslim men, and now they want to go against Allah's command on inheritance. This is what "women's rights" and feminism teaches them, Kufr.
