An imam in Quebec has some words of wisdom from Allah for wives who might be tempted to disobey their husbands, or deny them their conjugal perquisites.
Many thanks to Ava Lon for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
|00:00||When the husband calls his wife to his bed, and|
|00:04||she refuses, the angels curse her|
|00:08||until she wakes up. The angels curse her until she wakes up.|
|00:12||The angels curse her until the morning. And how many men|
|00:16||complain to scientists and to imams about that problem?|
|00:20||That women refuse when their husbands call them?|
|00:24||We don’t say that this is submission, but [Arabic]|
|00:28||but Allah made it an order so that all goes well with the couple.|
|00:32||It’s when she’s respectful, that you are honored. That she doesn’t|
|00:36||interrupt him when he talks, and doesn’t raise her voice|
|00:40||to him. And that she listens when addresses her.|
|00:44||And that she obeys when he orders her to do things.|
|00:48||And that she sustains him in his absence.|
|00:52||And that she gets up and rushes towards him when he arrives, when he|
|00:56||returns home. And the right of your husband over you comes before the right of your parents|
|01:00||over you. Unfortunately — may Allah guide them — many mothers meddle|
|01:04||into the couple’s business. And then they want|
|01:08||to defend the daughter. We say:|
|01:12||a virtuous and intelligent mother|
|01:16||almost never defends her daughter; even|
|01:20||if her daughter is right. Why?|
|01:24||In order to teach her patience. And the need|
|01:28||not to become angry at her husband;|
|01:32||even if she’s right and the husband is wrong, the mother shouldn’t defend her.|
|01:36||But she has to tell her to go back to her husband,|
|01:40||and to apologize, and to correct herself. And if the wife refuses,|
|01:44||she didn’t really refuse the man, or his [sic, not hers] parents;|
|01:48||she refused Allah. Because she is to submit|
|01:52||to Allah’s order. And it was Allah who ordered that. A man doesn’t call|
|01:56||his wife to his bed and she refuses, without|
|02:00||he who is in heaven [Arabic] — meaning Allah —|
|02:04||without he who is in heaven [Arabic] being angry at her until|
|02:08||she satisfies her husband; meaning until they reconcile.|
|02:13||If they aren’t reconciled, Allah is angry at her.|
|02:17||Know [Arabic] that Allah’s satisfaction|
|02:21||is in your husband’s satisfaction. And that Allah’s anger|
|02:25||is in your husband’s anger. The woman and spouse|
|02:29||won’t have fulfilled her duty towards her lord until|
|02:33||she fulfills her duty towards her husband.|
|02:37||The consideration of a wife for her husband [should be]|
|02:41||like people’s consideration for a king or their governor|
|02:45||or their emperor.
I was only thinking yesterday that the image of a Christian woman who defers to her husband, especially a white American Christian woman, is a liberal icon of male Christian oppression and violence, but an image a Muslim woman in a black sack is a symbol of female ’empowerment’.
I wonder when all these feminist geniuses are going to realize that marriage under Islam means their husband is granted sexual access to them 24/7/365. Allah does not care if you’re tired, have a headache, or just aren’t in the mood…
I think in extremis such a sermon is encouraging statutory rape,
As in the western world at least, when a woman says no, the law clearly states, she means NO!
Yes, liberals are shamelessly cynical at using double standards when dealing with Christianity and Islam. Really, in this respect they act like schizophrenics.
Another instance of such schizophrenia: liberals ardently fight against Islamophobia and homophobia somehow managing not to notice that they have to choose one or the other of these good causes.
I am shocked by what I read here about the cover-up by the BBC of the realities of Sharia.
U.K. WAKE UP. TELL THE TRUTH. FIGHT BACK AGAINST THE COVER-UP AND LIES.
Actually, this part sounds OK to me 🙂 A bit of respect to husbands would go a long way…
