I can quote tens of occasions when women have been grouped with children but if I mention anyone of them, you will just say this “was because of this” or “this was because of that” but women are also grouped with men on many occasions, to which I don’t think many would object to. But here, on this topic I grouped women with children, why?(by Kuffs___Post #32) These 3 quotes from your comment to me is sexist as you are implying WOMEN = CHILDREN under men. (Post #59) I don't understand how you can without backing an eyelid say that women = children under men.
"Men are in charge of, they have authority over, women, disciplining them and keeping them in check" according to the tafsir of al-Jalalayn of Quran 4:34.
Are men not responsible for children by "disciplining them and keeping them in check"? So here is where the similarity is and thus the examples used. And also I can't see why one should take offence at this association, children are highly prized in Islam "Wealth and children are the adornments of the life of this world….” Qur’an 18:46.
Also, here I specifically like to indulge in this accusation of SEXISM.
Sexism is a concept of the western secularists and is unrecognized in the muslim mentality or understanding. The use of such a term in this conversation clearly points to where the poster is getting his influence from.
Now, the oxford dictionary defines sexism as “prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex”.
If this is sexism then isn’t God himself sexist as he say says men are in charge of women, men can marry four while women can’t, 2 women witnesses for one male witness etc etc… Islam clearly defines roles according to gender which in the secular west would be defined as sexism. So this accusation of sexism doesn’t even make sense from a muslim.
The reason for this seemingly “offended” demeanour that is being portrayed by the poster is because he is trying to cling even to straws by using the sexism “card”(lol), but such a card doesn’t exist is islam. Maybe it does in the eyes of the modern ultra-moderate muslim. Men in islam are respected in a certain way and women in islam are also respected but in their own ways.
