I have seen, heard from and spoken to many extremely smart and intelligent Muslim women who still believe and champion the Book, the Sunna, the beliefs of Islam, and what was revealed to the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم. Some of you have expressed frustration and a sense of helplessness because so much is coming at us. But you’ve also expressed faith on this and other social media. As a man, as a Muslim and as an Imam, I’ve been listening to you and although I don’t understand everything, I understand a lot in Sha Allah.
I will fight to the end against the oppression of our women and for your rights in our faith according to Allah. That is my promise. However, I need you to fight on your side, against the ideological onslaught of false and corrupt beliefs, lifestyle, and heresy, creeping in on the women’s side. Some of you are very capable, knowledgable of our faith and organized. You are primed to engage with us in the struggle. I need those of you who are willing, and able, to step up. I will support you and help best I can in Sha Allah.
They want Muslim men and women to fight separately and against each other. That was the purpose of injecting feminism and the gender wars into our community. However, that is not the way Allah wants. They want us to be enemies. Allah wants us to be allies. Read.
وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتُ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ ۚ يَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَيُطِيعُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ سَيَرْحَمُهُمُ اللَّهُ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ
[The believing men and believing women are allies of one another. They enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Those – Allah will have mercy upon them. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.] 9:71
It’s not going to be easy, but we have to start somewhere. Feel free to inbox me with your ideas if you like, or we can speak and discuss publicly. Not looking to argue with anyone. Just tryna do my job.
Respectfully, Imam Luqman Ahmad
