For a moment I thought, no he did not say that. But a quick Google search proved me wrong. And this nut job calls himself a scholar/ulema. Shameful. Has he ever done any real work? The reason Pakistan is going through such devastation is not because of educated women but because of these bigoted uneducated molvis. Military should hunt down him and his ilk instead.
in his bumbling, i think he forgot to mention RAW also--so here i am correcting him

Prayers on chairs ban sparks outrage in Bangladesh

7 hours ago

A ban on using chairs in mosques has provoked outrage in Muslim-majority Bangladesh, with critics saying it will exclude the elderly and infirm from prayers.
The Islamic Foundation, an autonomous government agency, issued the fatwa over the weekend, saying devotees must instead use prayer mats.

But the move has attracted criticism both from within the government and Muslim clerics.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina told a weekly cabinet meeting on Monday she was "stunned", according to media reports, while pro-opposition Islamic groups reacted with fury.

"We strongly protest this faulty and fictitious fatwa," said a statement issued by a group of Islamic leaders and clerics.
"Chairs have been used for prayers in mosques for years," said Abdul Latif Nejami, one of the signatories.
Muslims in the conservative nation traditionally kneel on the floor to pray.

But in recent years most of the country's half a million mosques have allowed elderly and infirm worshippers to sit on chairs.
"They issued the edict by consulting with the traditions of Prophet Mohammed and his companions and practices over the centuries," the head of the Islamic Foundation Shamim Afzal told AFP.

Afzal said chairs spoiled the beauty of the mosques, and that there had been a similar move to ban them in India.
"There are no instances of the Prophet praying while sitting on a chair," he said.

Someone had replied like this on some other blog (maybe this explanation is more palatable to some of you):

God, the Most Merciful, gave us three basic rules for the Dress Code for Women in Islam.

ONE: The best garment is that of nice, modest conduct (7:26).

TWO: Cover your chest in the presence of unrelated men. (24:31)

THREE: Draw a shawl around yourself when outdoors in public. (33:59) -- In Iran they use chador, subcontinent - dupatta

After these three basic rules every woman can adjust her dress according to a particular situation. Any addition to these basic Qur’anic rules is an attempt to correct God or improve on His Infinite Wisdom. Innovations and fabrications that add countless rules to the women dress code are nothing but idol-worship and should be rejected. Stay with God; that is where the winners go.

Just for the sake of argument: What Body Parts Women Can Show In Public? Face, hands and forearms, heads, feet and ankles as during ablution. See 5:6. A Hadith that agrees with the Qur’an: Ibn Umar said that during the times of Rasoolullah (S) men and women used to do Wudhu together. – Bukhari, Kitab al Wuhu .

Her Hijab no deterrent, this IAS officer determined to work for marginalised sector

Kozhikode: It’s a long pending dream come true, not only for her but for the entire Muslim community in Kerala, especially the Muslim women.

Atheela Abdulla goes to work wearing the Hijab. “There is an option to wear or not to wear it. I opted the choice of wearing it. As a civil servant, I am obliged to not raise such question and do justice to my duty and post,” Atheela says.

Currently, she is posted as the Sub Collector and Additional District Magistrate in Malappuram, the district with second largest Muslim population in the country after Murshidabad in West Bengal.

Born at Valayam near Kuttyadi in Kozhikode district to Abdulla, an NRI businessman, and Biyyathu, a school teacher. Atheela completed her primary and secondary studies in Good Faith School in Kuttyadi. After completing the higher secondary studies from the Muslim Educational Society (MES) residential school at Chathamangalam in Kozhikode, she earned her MBBS degree from MES Medical College, Malapparamba in Malappuram.

Married, with two daughters, it was Atheela’s family, especially her in-laws, who helped her realize her dream. But what drove the family to help her accomplish her desire to become an IAS officer?

Her mother-in-law, Thahira, a retired school teacher, lent her support to Atheela with a “desire to draw Muslim girls towards civil service.”

“Our daughter-in-law has earned her place. This achievement might help in drawing more Muslim girls to civil services,” Thahira says.

Atheela’s husband Dr Rabeeh is pursuing his post graduation in medicine at Pariyaram Cooperative Medical College.

So, with hard work, burning the proverbial mid-night oil, Atheela became the IAS officer of Kerala cadre in 2012. She was appointed as the sub-collector trainee in Kannur district of Northern Kerala in 2013.

Why I as a Muslim Woman Don't Wear a Headscarf

Does the Koran really demand that women wear headscarves? Or is it mainly older men who claim they can decide how women should dress – with no theological foundation whatsoever? For the Islam scholar Lamya Kaddor, there is no question about it: the headscarf is obsolete

If I as a Muslim woman living in Germany ask myself whether I should wear a headscarf or not, that gives rise to the question of whether the additional head-covering called for in the Koran (33:59) still fulfils its original purpose of protecting women from male desire. My answer is: no. In contemporary Germany such covering-up no longer serves that purpose. It is even more likely to bring about the opposite of what God intended by exposing wearers of headscarves to discrimination.

Today the intended protection against 'annoyances' is provided by a well-functioning legal system rather than by adherence to social rules from the past. A free state based on the rule of law protects a woman, for example by punishing attacks on her person. This protection may be primarily concerned with bodily integrity, but people in a modern state are more than ever responsible for themselves with regard to the freedoms accorded – including in the realm of moral integrity. Covering my head cannot relieve me of that responsibility. I cannot hide myself behind a little piece of cloth. A free and democratic state grants rights and also imposes responsibilities. In such circumstances I can behave honourably with and without a veil or head-scarf – or not, as the case may be.

A 'fashion accessory' from Koranic times?

If this argument is accepted, one can also abandon the Koranic demand for additional covering, directed towards women in Early Arabic tribal society. What would still initially remain is the khimâr, the head covering that was part of women's clothing at that time. The Koran neither speaks against nor in any way emphasises that form of covering. God uses the word only once in the Koran (24:31). That occurs in passing in connection with a call for moral behaviour. So there is no Koranic emphasis on such head covering. However, if God had required a special head covering, would He not have said so explicitly? The khimâr thus merely constitutes a 'fashion accessory' according to the spirit of that age. Viewed rationally, functions consciously or unconsciously associated with head coverings across the course of history – such as protection against sand or evil influences – are all superannuated today and have lost their validity. People's powers of imagination have changed.

In the Germany of the twenty-first century – at the very latest – women's hairstyles are no longer per se an erotic stimulus. The sight of head-hair no longer provokes sexual fantasies and thus immoral behaviour – except perhaps among fetishists. When you walk along a city's pedestrian precincts no one turns to look at you because of your hair. Only if you dress provocatively or in a particularly original way, and behave accordingly, do you attract some attention. In addition, this isn't a male world that still thinks as it did a thousand or more years ago. Thanks to the achievements of a free and democratic state, and thanks to the prevalent understanding of relations between the sexes, you no longer necessarily need a head covering in order to live morally. The headscarf has become obsolete.

Misogyny by Islamic scholars

Today's orthodox comprehension of the obligation to wear a head covering is primarily based on the interpretations of scholars who lived several generations after the Prophet Mohammed. One can follow their judgements but they are not sacrosanct. As human beings all scholars are fallible. Conservative and fundamentalist circles constantly emphasise that our behaviour should follow the Koran and the Prophet. Their spokesmen maintain that this directly accords with what was laid down during the Prophet's lifetime and the initial period of Islam.

However in reality this view is mainly based on the ideas of scholars who lived some 600 (!) years later – such people as Ibn Qudâma (d. 1223), Ibn Taymîya (d. 1328), or the latter's pupil Ibn Qayyim al-Jawzîya (d. 1350). Bearing in mind the patriarchal social structures of that time, it is unsurprising that interpretations of sources concerning relations between the sexes were usually unfavourable for women – even though that contradicts a striving (to be found throughout the Koran) towards improving women's situation. That tendency is even less surprising if one recalls the misogyny demonstrated by many scholars throughout the history of Islam. Linking shame and a head covering is by no means as self-evident as it seems. Sura 24:30-31 calls on both men and women to behave chastely, but exegesis of the Koran up to the present day only puts the emphasis on chaste behaviour for women.

No political symbol

Nevertheless, the Koranic injunction to dress in a way that is generally demure remains a religious demand, to be fulfilled by wearing 'appropriate' clothing. A woman believer sees this as signifying that all those parts of the female body which nowadays excite the idea of possible sexual contact should continue to be 'properly' concealed beneath the kind of clothing usual today. What is entailed in 'proper', 'appropriate', or 'decent' is left to the reasonableness of every mature woman citizen, since at present there are no specific directives based on Islamic sources. In prevalent practice, it is mostly older men – learned or unlearned – who assume the right to determine how a woman should appear, but there is no theological or sociological foundation for this.

A similar situation prevails regarding evaluation of the headscarf as a token of Islamic faith. Such a function cannot be demonstrated in the history of Islam. The depiction of the headscarf as a unifying element within the Muslim community is not well founded either. In addition, its function as a political symbol, so frequently evoked in public discussions today, also constitutes a historically unfounded inflation of the significance of this item of clothing. This has occurred only in recent decades, as an element in the opposition to Western influences within the Islamic world.

Top 10 countries with Highest Rape Crime from http://www.wonderslist.com/10-countries ... ape-crime/

1. United States
2. South Africa
3. Sweden
4. India
5. United Kingdom
6. Germany
7. France
8. Canada
9. Sri Lanka
10. Ethiopia

Except Ethiopia (arguably) all the above countries have legal protection for women against rape. None are Muslim majority countries.

Pornography appeals to baser instincts of the male of the human species. It arouses lust. Females dressing provocatively and exposing the shapes of their bodies, bosoms and buttocks particularly, is an invitation to lust. Hence Qur'an's injunctions for women to dress modestly and extend their head scarves to cover their bosoms. So the real reason for headscarves is not just to cover the head but to cover the bosom too.

One thing can be said in favor of burqa. It does not distinguish between attractive and not-so-attractive women. They all appear shapeless. So all women are equally 'protected'.

If we do away with head scarves and burqa and chador, we men will have the pleasure of distractions occasioned by the female bodies all around us. That makes life more bearable and lusty! Soaring rape crime as a result is the price worth paying for such delectable pleasures. No? :wink:

Fayyaz
This survey may be little skewed since all the top countries are Western Countries (except India being at 4th) where crime reporting is much better recorded while in other countries specially third world crime does not even get reported. Even in India, many time police would not record or act on criminals due to corrupt system or powerful criminals.

The results of a survey like this are worthless. For a start, is it absolute numbers or pro-rated per population density?

No doubt, there is enormous social pressures, particularly in non-Western countries, not to report rape crime.

The point to be made is that the argument of the German Muslim woman that the "legal protection against rape in Western countries means Quran is irrelevant" does not hold water. Rapes will happen regardless. Just because there are laws against robbery, that has not prevented robberies.

So, if you do not want to flaunt your household valuables, you would lock your house before leaving it. Similarly, modest dress for women is a 'lock' . Neither robbers nor rapists are deterred by legal safeguards whether in the past, present or future. But it is the 'personal feeling of security' that the 'lock' affords. And that is the point of the Quranic injunction.

'Houses and other things' are not abstract. They are as physical as a woman.

Woman definitely is a property of man whether wife, daughter or a slave. If you do not agree, try stealing someone's wife from him. (Ignore the issue of conscience for a moment.)

Even when couples break up, the resentment is primarily due to 'feeling' of being cheated out of a 'possession', a 'property'

That is the cultural legacy of the human species. In Muslim countries particularly, many underage girls are 'sold' off to the highest bidder in the guise of 'early marriage'. Google 'child brides in Bangladesh', a recent news item.

Not really. Because according to mamaji, bikini satisfies the criteria of hijab according to Quran. So he will leave his cash (his women) out in the open (with a bikini), cause according to his logic, instead of the thief breaking into the house, and doing more damage, it is easier to just leave the cash out in the open cause that will cause less damage. So if a women is wearing a burqa, the rapist has to do more work and it will cost more to replace the burqa. Hence, let the women roam around in a bikini.

That is the great mamaji logic.

What vulgar logic applied by anajmi . . . Go do your creative writing and twisted logic smart aleck brownie points elsewhere.

Fayyaz- - My man is my property - don't mess with him or you deal with me. Nobody messes with him. And if I continue to talk like that - he gets called hen pecked. Or sissy. Contrast that to overprotective or chauvinist?? Any difference there . . . Just consider. If your woman is your property, my man is my property? What's wrong with that? Everything. Respect is lost when we deal with human beings as Things to be taken, controlled, kept in a safe deposit vault, or prison. Even politicians have devised extradition treaties - fancy politics for treating humans as things.

"Houses" "woman" "man"is all physical? Words are physical too? Words such as "houses, child, female, woman, sticks and stones". How about words such as "injustice, chauvinistic"
Words are not abstract?

All words are abstractions.

What superficial things you guys discuss and drift toward.
You get caught up in rigid doctrine, no matter whether you are abde or atheist, conservative or reformist, Wahhabi or true Muslim, . . . Just labels to convey ideas. Get too rigid about this, and you drift into either irrelevance or esoteric innuendo in the guise of intellect or creativity or self- righteousness. Or nothingness.

Loosen up brothers! :)

Sister Samina ben, you seem to have indeed missed the point of discussion. I agree with fayyaz’s view. Yes ! your man is your property too. We are not discussing society decided rules but rather a natural human tendencies to a sense of belonging and possessions. This applies on any relationship, my child is my property. I would get offended if mishandled or snatched away.

Coming to the point of burka or modest dressing. I would advise my women, men to dress modestly similar to the lines of safeguarding their well being be it from harsh sun, muddy water or dirty eyes. Keeping all the ideal world situation of everyone being nice and decent on the side. In reality this world is filled with perverts and dented mindsets. It is safer to be logical. Not specifically promoting burka or particular way of dressing. Just mentioning modest sense of dressing.

Woman Walked NYC Using Ordinary Clothes Vs. Muslim Hijab! The Result Was Surprising!

Most people say that a person should not be judged by their physical appearance or the way they dressed. Judging the way a person looks should not be tolerated at all times.

This social experiment will show you the difference that the clothes could do to a woman.

A woman was asked to walk down the streets in two outfits. The first one was wearing casual clothes such as jeans, shirt and a blazer. Every man that she passes through hits on her.

A lot of men claim that she was beautiful. There were several teases and jeers at the woman. One man was even persistent enough to walk with him until the next block. The man only stopped when the team intervened them.

Then the next one, the same woman walked while she was wearing a Hijab. A traditional dress with long cloth that covers the shape and the body of the woman leaving only her face. The results were surprising.
