Islams Reformers

The bigotry of the religion reformers or bigots of science who surfaced lately to blame all previous scholars, basic fundamental beliefs or practices

etween 40 and 70, two out of 3 deaths of heart-disease are men. Ulcer, cancer, pneumonia and tuberculosis are more common among men. Women’s cancers, for example, of womb or breast, are more easily cured than men’s cancers of lungs, stomach or prostate. “May be women catch many more kinds of diseases; but their diseases are less mortal. It is found out that men and women more easily catch 245 and 120 out of some 365 kinds of dangerous diseases, respectively.” On Rajab al-fard 5, 1404 (April 18, 1983), Hürriyet, a daily published in Istanbul, reported: “According to the official results of the census, the ratio of widows to widowers in Istanbul is 17:4.” This means that the number of widows is four times greater than that of widowers. Another evidence showing that women are more numerous is that there is an enormous number of women who live on selling their honesty. It is obvious that such women are numerous especially in advanced countries. If a married or single man who cannot help having intercourse with such a woman marries her and spends his money for her home instead of paying it to her for dishonesty, will it be bad? Religion reformers or progressives cannot say, “It won’t be bad, it will be good,” for they want women to remain in a status that would always keep them prone to supersedure. Those who dislike marrying more than one must be those who are afraid that not many women will remain for them to amuse themselves with. If they say, “Man’s view of the women with whom he has intercourse illegitimately and his view of his own wife are different,” they in fact regard those women who work illegitimately as lowly people who have lost their value. For this reason, they consider the sexual relations of a woman of high rank a much more shameful deed, a scandal. Women are led to prostitution out of necessity, need or seduction. It cannot be thought of for man because he does not earn but pays money. This also shows that woman cannot be equal to man. No matter how pretty she is, a woman does not give up trying to be attractive for man. Those with diminished bashfulness turn womanhood into a commercial material. It is seen that woman is more timid than man. This timidity is not because their lust is little, but because they are more capable of concealing their – 114 –

sensations than men are. As lust is more in women, so their bashfulness is more than men’s. Even a woman with diminished bashfulness sits awaiting at the brothel. It is the man who visits her and even pays her. In no place of the world is there a brothel where clients are women and prostitutes are men. Women’s bashfulness provides them with greater patience and determination. It prevents them from rushing into many heavy jobs. With the exception of communist regimes, where human beings, regardless of sex, are held equal with animals and slaves, although some of them, for the purpose of deceiving Muslims, disguise their administrations under spurious appelations such as “Socialist Islamic Republic’, there is next to no country where women are armed and sent to the battlefield no matter how difficult the conditions are. When men decrease in number, they employ women in supply service behind the front and in easy jobs. In reply to men, who undertake these heavy and risky jobs and who sacrifice their lives for their country and children, such a selfsacrifice as not being sorry for their husbands’ marrying more than one can be expected from women in order to prevent the loss of population caused by heavy industries and wars. In fact, men’s jihâd against the enemy is compared to women’s struggling with their nafs in the Hadîth: “Allâhu ta’âlâ imposed jealousy on women and jihâd on men. The woman who believes and endures this task will be rewarded in the Hereafter as if she were a martyred fighter for Islam.” This hadîth points out that women should be patient about their husband’s marrying another woman. The woman will both be jealous and endure this. And this great self-sacrifice has been held equivalent to men’s jihâd. It is correct to hold jihâd equivalent to ta’addud az-zawjât, because the latter causes the population to increase and war causes it to decrease. In the magazine Bayân alhaqq, Mustafâ Sabri Effendi (rahmatullâhi ’alaih) explained this equivalence in detail. Islam does not command ta’addud az-zawjât, but it permits it. Though it is not sinful not to use this permission, it is a religious duty to believe in that this permission is compatible with social life, knowledge and reason, and to refute those who say that this is not so. Moreover, it is a condition for those who do not want to use this permission not to meet the need of ta’addud az-zawjât in a sinful way. Although there is no one who attempts to use this permission today, religion reformers censure it as the separatists reiterate the combats between ’Alî and Mu’âwiya (radiy-Allâhu – 115 –
