When a man cut his hair short,she wanted to cut her hair short.When a man joined the army,she wanted to join the army.She wanted these things for no other reason than because the “standard” had them.
What she didn’t recognize was that god dignifies both men and women in their distinctiveness –not in their sameness.When we accept men as the standard,suddenly anything uniquely feminine becomes by definition infereior.Being sensitive in as insult, becoming a full-time mother-a degradation.In the battle between stoic rationally(considered masculine)and selfless compassion(considered feminine),rationally reigned supreme.ven our privilages women,we only degrade ourselves by trying to be something we are not-and in all honesty-don’t want to be:a man.As women,we will never reach true liberation until we stop trying to mimic men,and value the beauty in our god-given distinctiveness.
The above piece of writing is from my favorite book(Reclaim your Heart)written by Yasmin Mogahed.I’ve been following her on facebook and have loved her writing that make us to think and rethink about our existence.Her words penetrate in to our heart & take us near to the God.May Allah give her healthy & long life so people like us will gain more and more benefits!!!Ameen
