RESPONSE TO MODERN AGE FEMINISM : SHE IS EMPOWERED WOMEN TOO.
Whenever we talk about Empowered Women we see pics of women doing jobs, successful entrepreneurs , Doing some different jobs like being drivers, pilots etc.
As much as I adore and support this but I am frustrated to the extreme it is reaching. I saw on a social media post that a women was being trolled just because she got everything pink for her daughter. People believed that she was trying to push her towards too feminine choices .
Over a period of time I have realized that all the modern age feminist movement is about EMBRACING MASCULINITY AND DEGRADING FEMINTY AND THEN LABEL THEMSELVES EMPOWERED.
All this movement does is look down upon everything associated with being feminine. Loyal, kind ,soft spoken ,well mannered housewives or moms as feeble but if she is outspoken ,uses Cuss words, is successful in her career so she is empowered .
But Islam has never done that . Infact it has elated the status of a woman and has made her the queen of her home .
Abu Huraira reported: A man asked the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, “Who is most deserving of my good company?” The Prophet said, “Your mother.” The man asked, “Then who?” The Prophet said “Your mother.” The man asked again, “Then who?” The Prophet said, “Your mother.” The man asked again, “Then who?” The Prophet said, “Your father.” Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 5626, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 2548
The Prophet PBUH was born in the lap of a woman. He was delicately wrapped up and nursed by a woman. The first person to see his beautiful and illuminated smile was a woman. When his mother died in Abwa, he tearfully returned to Makkah with a woman.
“When he returned from Hira, the first person who covered him was a woman and the first person he spoke to was a woman. A woman was the first to believe in him. A woman was the first to pray with him. A woman was the first to die for him.
“When he delivered his khutbah (sermon), a woman was the first to build a minbar (pulpit) for him. When he left this world, he left resting his head on a woman.
“His lineage continued through a woman; and his final words were, ‘I give you counsel that you be good to your women’.”
So here we understand the status of women.
She does not have to shed her femininity and compete with Men to feel strong by changing her dress style,career choices ,nature .
She does not have adhere to the so called MODERN AGE WOMEN EMPOWERMENT MOVEMENT who does not LIBERATE her but merely entangles her in the shackles of new society norms .
Celebrate your Womanhood as an achievement and not a weakness you want to hide from.
Because Allah SWT loves you for what you are ,so Dont Fake it.
