In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
For there even to be such a day called "International Womens Day" is a little odd to me.
Although it shows achievement, it also shows that in western society and thinking, women are still seen as the lesser sex. Even though the west like to 'promote' the approach of "if he can do it then I (a woman) can do it".
Just because one little day of the year is made for women doesn't mean anything.
Men do not have a day/celebration especially for them do they? Maybe they feel left out because of this if they are forgetting the oppression, degradation and foul treatment of women throughout the years (which in some parts of the world is still ongoing, so when you celebrate don't forget those women!).
They don't have their own day because the west still don't see women as equals, they see it as a man's world. Although this act may be seen as one step forward, there is still a long way to go. This takes me back to over 1400 years ago where women had rights just like men did.
Taught by who?
Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him)
Two things which the media like to portray as evil, wrong, nasty, corrupt...Two things they don't want people to learn about. Why? because if everyone did learn the truth and come to the true understanding of Islam, they wouldn't have a leg to stand on. No scapegoat or puppets to use. Nothing. Islam is an amazing thing to have in your life. Many people approach it as a way of life, and it is. No other religion gave women rights all those years ago except Islam. The real question though: why would the west cover something so beautiful and enlightening up in return for the daily grind and ongoing suffering of it's people who have been brainwashed into thinking that 'this' is life?
