So in secularism (a man made-religion) the definition of good morals is to force a woman napping on a beach to take off her top because long sleeves on a beach is now a crime...This very same religion (secularism) prides itself in women and human rights...the irony...
I'm not shocked by these incidents or the daily new "security laws" ... I'm shocked that we are still foolish to expect justice and good conduct from such governments that bomb the life out of civilians; killing their children while they sleep next to their teddies...
Painful reality check: today, we Muslims are portrayed as the monsters while we are the ones being dehumanised and attacked in most parts of the world (symbolically, psychologically, verbally, physically)...
But...The weak are always targeted - It's just how things work here on planet earth...
If we were not weak; Palestine will be free, Yemen will be exporting food to the world, Syria will be leading in science and education, Iraq graduating scholars to the world and Egypt will be our capital of wealth (economics,human resources, art)...and non Muslims will be wanting to wear burkinis to the beach!
Why are we weak and where does this weakness come from? The answer to this question is the solution to our misery... The answer is direct in this Hadith:
The prophet (s) stated that "at the end of times; the nations will call one another against you just as the eaters call one another to their dishes." A person asked: "Is this because we will be few in numbers that day?" He (s) said: "Nay, but that day you shall be numerous (1.8 billion maybe!), but you will be like the foam of the sea, and Allah will take the fear of you away from your enemies and will place weakness into your hearts"...Somebody asked: "What is this weakness?" He said: "The love of the world and the dislike of death." (Abu Daud).
The origin of this weakness:
1. We love the Dunia! no necessarily in the materialistic sense only; but Dunia is attachment to just about anything in Dunia > people, prestige, emotions, etc
2. All humans love life and dislike death; that's normal - but the context of this particular dislike in the Hadith is related to "not being the good Muslims yet that we hope to be before we die" hence the dislike of death - we are worried because we are behind... We are behind in our worship, character, stewardship and our real potential in general... We know that we can be and do better; but we don't which makes us dislike and fear death...
The problem is not what women are or are not allowed to wear! The issue is beyond this news item... And it's a serious one (because it starts with "you cant wear this" but will lead to "you can't be from this faith"!)...
If we truly want matters to get better... If we truly*want our dignity, human rights, justice and peace to return to our motherlands; we must be *strong again...It's only then that they will listen and fear our anger...
So if we truly want this change; working on these 2 points on a personal and societal level is fundamental and paramount...
Until then; we can keep singing for peace, write "it's not fair" and post pictures that make us feel like we are devout activists ...
It's not an easy and quick way... It's a lengthy and hard way - but it's the only way.
