Perempuan, Isteri dan ...


Prologue : of EVE

“Men are in charge of women, because ALLAH hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which ALLAH hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! ALLAH is ever High Exalted, Great.” 4; 34

This series will discuss about contemporary issue of men and women, emphasizing more on the latter. I really hope that my writing will help people to understand the issue well. I’m not a sexist, nor am a feminist, nor am a masculist, nor do i want to be a hypocrite.

Chapter One : Women the Trial : Femme Fatale

Women, the killer. Men, the dumb and dumber.

Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani writes about; the primacy of the heart over all other organs (Encyclopedia of Islamic Doctrine, Volume V; Self-Purification: State of Excellence, published by As-Sunna Foundation of America). Though it states about tasawwuf, it is understood that the supremacy of the heart reigns over the body.

“As soon as a sin is committed, a black impression falls on the pure soul. If it is not removed, it remains and thus hundreds of black impressions make the whole region of the heart black. It is the duty of every man to remove these black impressions by washing them with the water of tears and repentance” Mishkat al-Masabih, 3: 760

Guard the heart. Sound heart. May we, men and women are in His hands, guarded from one another. Amen.

Chapter Two : Women the Trial : Shampoo and Hidden Crown

Sunsilk. When I first see the ads ;

“Eh? Rosak eh rambut pakai tudung.. ?”

Nothing is wrong with Sunsilk though. Nothing is with the hair too. And none is with the veil, too.

But, in the ads, the women wears the veil, covering her hair. And there’s a scene too, when her hair is visible for viewers. Oh, such beauty. Straight. Silky. Black. And no dandruff.

You can divide women, majorly to two types. You can, at least on Friday.

1. In veil
2. Un veil

And they are either in;

1. Kurung, see-through-ed.
2. Tight shirt, showing navel.
3. Tight jeans, showing lump at the back, buttock and its cleavage.

And normally, women in 2 always drag their shirt to cover their navel. So stupid.

“And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.) and not to show off their adornment except only that which is apparent (like palms of hands or one eye or both eyes for necessity to see the way, or outer dress like veil, gloves, head-cover, apron, etc.), and to draw their veils all over Juyubihinna (i.e. their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms, etc.) and not to reveal their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands fathers, their sons, their husbands sons, their brothers or their brothers sons, or their sisters sons, or their (Muslim) women (i.e. their sisters in Islam), or the (female) slaves whom their right hands possess, or old male servants who lack vigour or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex. And let them not stamp their feet so as to reveal what they hide of their adornment. And all of you beg Allah to forgive you all, O believers, that you may be successful”

24:31 (An-Nur)

Such ads, will stimulate women to accept the fabricated fact that “My hair is beauty. My beauty is for public”. Woman. Your hair is not for display. Please!! I hate shampoo sometimes.

Chapter Three : Women the Trial : Napkin?

** Sorry for sensitivity arised from this issue (insensitivity)

There was this ads on air, about a woman in cinema, passing before a man, and she shows no worry. At the end of the ads; showing the brand of the napkin. sanitary napkin it is. (suggested by hawa)

Oh! So napkin sekarang odorless eh, ok

That’s the first thought. And the second comes in, saying;

Ape kaitan odorless dgn nak lalu depan laki?

And this tv show; sponsored by a brand. Tri-Ar. I hate that show. Napkin is for that you-know-what-i-mean purpose. you can advertise to promote your product, yeah man. It’s your right. Women however should not be talking about this woman thingy out loud. Aite? Common it is now that couple (read; couple, NOT spouse) always talk about PMS, this and that. You love your boy, you love your girl. Ok, fine. Talk about it after marriage. You boys should get busy knowing about haid, nifas, and wiladah. Read any fiqh book, it usually starts with Kitab al-Miyah (water), by then you get to know about Ghuslah. Read that. And stop talking with your girl about her periodic table! I hate that, hate myself too.

Chapter Four : Women the Wife

Cinta islamik. The topic, which I don’t have right to talk about. To those searching khazinatul asrar the women, be khazinatul asrar the men. To those searching Mr. Perfect the men, be Ms. Perfect the women. Get serious and prepare yourself. Stop dreaming of getting good ones if you aren’t one. And don’t think marriage is just an aqad

“Inna min azwajikum wa abnaikum aduwwun lakum fahzaruuhum”

Fahzaruuhum… Sure it gives you the true meaning of being a husband, a brother and a son.
