Girl I didn't know you could get down like that
All the women who are independent
Throw your hands up at me
All the honeys who makin' money
Throw your hands up at me
All the mommas who profit dollas
Throw your hands up at me
All the ladies who truly feel me
Throw your hands up at me

Girl I didn't know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that
Girl I didn't know you could get down like that
Charlie, how your Angels get down like that

Read the above lyrics? Its from a group of young women artists who flaunt just
about skin, as Muslim women are required to cover. This so called womens
liberation presented here is just one of todays many lyrics of women artists
world wide who are singing of independency But if you were to examine the
lyrics above, You would see that they contradict themselves right in the second
verse of this chorus. They Say charlies Angel. In the movie and for those of
you who have watched it, would know that Charlie is a billionaire (man)funding a
team of courageous women. So basically they are charlies angels.. Or that they
belong to him make sense yet?
Womens liberation did not begin today. From back in the days of simple voting
options to the ability to ride a horse.. Somehow women have always been fed that
they are not treated equally, but much less deprived of the benefits that men
receive. However today I present to you with much careful research the truth
about women and their liberation and the true intoxication of the media and
their outwitting schemes. Islam has stated that a woman is of wayward thinking
today Kuffars are proving it.

To mention the nations of the past and their treatment upon women is an amazing
way to prove the freedom Islam has given a female. Upon the oppression and
degrading treatment a women received in times of the Babylonian Civilization to
the time of the ancient Greeks. A woman was to their thinking a free
prostitute and this is exactly how she was treated. From bearing child after
child to bearing the house duties a women they say has come a long way today.
But does she not bear a child still? Is she not used as an object of free sex?
In more ways then one can think. Women today have if not reached the same
degrading position then have lowered themselves even lower. The Greeks believed
a women (Pandora) was the source of releasing curse and bad luck. While the
Egyptians believed a women to be a sign of the devil. Even Arabs nations prior
to the Nation of Muhammad SAW looked down upon women and buried females alive.
It is after The Prophet Muhammad Saw begin rule did women achieve the rights to
inheritance (and today Islam is the only religion that recognizes a womens
inheritance) and the right to speak.

Where does the real voice of a women lie? In her styles? Her hobbies? Her dress?
Her beauty? The answer is simple... in her wisdom, her chastity, her natural
inclines towards caring and loving, but today western society has deprived her
of that. Dress and you sell; sing about love and triumphing fantastical
situation. And you sell, look pretty and you sell, have your life revolving
around a man and once again you SELL. Selling is all the media has made of women
today. From top billboards to magazines of freshly painted women, a womens
voice seems to lie in her beauty or so the media has stated it. And while they
acknowledge these women by awards, yet carelessly they show their true colors.
In the New York Times Magazine , Editor Stephen J Dubner states in his opening
article of NFL Players
During the NFLs compulsory symposium, rookies are prepared to meet their
natural enemies: money, the media and, apparently, WOMEN
He goes on to say the treatment that most NFL players give their women.
Most of them (NFL players) have taken to carrying2 cell phones: one for family
and real friends, and the second sometimes called a girlfriend phone.
According to a loose survey I conducted during symposium- of the players,
counselors, and league and union officials- roughly about 50 percent of the
rookies have fathered children, (about 10 percent meanwhile are married) the
mothers of those children are often shunted to that girlfriend line.
It is not surprising that this is the treatment of the women from the same men
who endorse and publicize a general use of women labor. From cheerleaders who
are said to be encouraging the team to women who hand out their food at such
conferences the treatment of women on a whole is outrageous. While the
treatment that the individuals give is even worse. Allen Iverson a well ideal
model for basketball fans threw his wife (supposedly) out of the house naked in
the middle of the night, in a matter that Fred Flintstone put out his cat. Al
Unser JR, who twice won the Indianapolis 500, was arrested on charges that while
drunk hit his girlfriend in the face and abandoned her beside an interstate,
also in the middle of the night.
From fancy cars, to jewelry the only attempt of these men for women are
simple... Use and Abuse.

As for style and dress what is left of the imagination today for a man? Clothes
that barely cover can give any man on a street a pleasing thought and pleasure.
Its not surprising that when interviews were conducted on rapists, most
convicted Rapists raped women wearing little or tight clothes.
The second thing men look for
Is clothing. They will look for women who's clothing
is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors
Around to cut clothing.


Still Ralph Lauren, St. Laurent, Tommy Hilfiger and other men seem to be the
ideal fashion statement for womens attire today. Endorsing and displaying all
of women they want to see, they dress women up the way they please and the way
they want. They say they have opened up a door to freedom through expression of
dress yet it is this same freedom that is keeping them entrapped. Look at
the lifestyle of a glorious model. Who must feed to keep her body in want, who
must dress to attract, who must pose as they want her to, when they want her to,
how they want her to and who they want her with. Being raped is not necessarily
a physical action, what about the rape of the eyes? The rape of sight is
possibly the worse rape, because it doesnt end there. Imagine a man looking at
you and thinking free, imagine him comparing you to other women he has seen, and
while no one is perfect what a degrading situation these women are placed in.
its not a surprise that so many adds are animated or adjusted changing skin
color, facial structures, shades, shapes and the list goes on. So if revealing
your body to be proud is an attribution of freedom, then where does the sense
of change lie? Why must women be changed to suit the desires of men? From mind
to mingle... today a medias standard of a women is clear to see A Mans
Significant Other

Be a shadow in the crowd
Until you speak and interact when your voice should carry loud

The position of women in Islam is often the target of double standard media
today. Why cover your beauty and hide your splendor? Does your religion belittle
you entrap you forever? Why can a man marry 4 wives, while a women can marry but
one? These are just some of the questions that curious or sometime ignorant folk
put to question. In light of the above-mentioned points kindly refer to the kind
treatment that Islam has entailed a man to give a women.

Hijab is probably one of the most degraded things looked upon by the media and
women who are unaware on the whole.
Hijab includes conduct and behavior among other things
>Complete 'hijab', besides the six criteria of clothing, also includes the Moral
conduct, behavior, attitude and intention of the individual. A person only
fulfilling the criteria of 'hijab' of the clothes is Observing 'hijab' in a
limited sense. 'Hijab' of the clothes should be accompanied by 'hijab' of the
eyes, 'hijab' of the heart, 'hijab' of Thought and 'hijab' of intention. It also
includes the way a person walks, the way a person talks, the way he behaves,
etc. 5. Hijab prevents molestation The reason why Hijab is prescribed for women
is mentioned in the Qur'an In the following verses of the Quran:
>"O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women that they
should cast their outer garments over their persons (when abroad);
That is most convenient, that they should be known (Identified)(as such) and
not molested. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."

From this it is clear to see that Allah has placed Hijab as a Protection for a
women and referring to the above what a protection it is! While above all things
of protection and modesty the main objective is to be enslaved to the
Creator alone. While today women worship designers and are enslaved to fashion
and its leads... a muslimah once again is reminded of her position as a slave to
the Lord of the worlds and therefore adjusts her life to his wants and pleasure.
Hiding her beauty and natural Attractiveness for only those who are entailed to
see it. And does it not make sense. They call her oppressed... yet she is in
control of those who look at her! How unique that she is considered oppressed
yet she is in such control.  Muslim men who  enforced hijab were one of the
attacks of media to defame hijab and to belittle this cult(Islam). However
if one looks at the essence of these rapist or so the media once stated them,
they could really understand the essence of their modesty. They demanded women
to cover, why would they rape them in the end? Does it make sense that they wish
to not see women uncovered yet they would uncover them? Hijab was not the only
thing that the media defamed of Islam. The concept of having four wives was a
broad issue in the media standards and once again another thing objected to by
female organizations. What is this issue in its essence? After reading about Pro
Sports Players and their ability to have a girl friend cell phone does it not
seem reasonable that Muslim men to control and base their own desires at least
get committed to all four? They must have source to support all of them and
treat them equally. While today in society it is no surprise that some men abuse
and use so many women they are known as players in that field. They are neither
committed nor do they support or love these women. They play with them as if
they are a game, and women are dealt with in this manner. Still women are
constantly backing the issue of hijab and Islam treating women in a degrading
manner. Are these the rights women wish to achieve? Have they not then lowered
themselves even farther in the issue of womens lib? Have they not only reached
the level of degradation that the Babylonian women received? But even lower? See
the reality of the situation within a western society. Its all about getting
the wants and avoiding the needs. They collect lovers upon lovers, but which one
of them actually commits? Look at the lives of the Stars and models, one after
the other, in continued pursuit to find the one they love, yet leave after a few
short months. And in this reality it is the women who is hurt and abused and
bewildered the most. She is the one being left, she is the one being played most
of the time, she is the one sacrificing her time to suit his needs, decorating
his arm so others may look at him in envy of the beauty he has struck,
withstanding all that  what do they really believe us to be?
Irvin Fryar (another speaker at the conference) tell rookies There are women
who have a plan to trap you (referring to women who go out with men only to get
the money)
Giants Linemen Jeff Hatch reflected upon the symposiums teaching about women
If you came down from Mars and saw all this (referring to women and their so
called traps to trap men and their money)youd think that women were an evil,
evil species


The Prophet Of Allah Saw said in his last sermon You have rights over your
women, and your women have rights over you. They are a trust of Allah (God) in
your hands. So you must treat them with the greatest kindness

The Prophet Of Allah Saw said to his companions (something to the effect of)
The best amongst you is he who is kind to his wife

The Object of women in Islam is quite clear to see. In light of the above she is
treated with much more dignity and pride then the way women today are being
treated. She has a right to her husbands earning and he has a right in taking
care of the children. She has a right for free speech in whom she wants to
marry, and he has the right of providing and maintaining her. Marriage is a
union, and Islam continues to emphasize it. The Prophet SAW spoke often of kind
treatment towards women and when asked by his companions, whom he loved most, he
SAW replied Aisha(his wife).

The topic of women and their independence is an ongoing subject and can be
debated over ages and centuries. In short women who continue in a pursuit to be
equal must remember that she can never be, especially in a western society. If
however she understands the concept of women in Islam she would be astonished
and amazed. The First Martyr in Islam was a woman. The only person to see their
place in paradise was a woman. When The Prophet SAW was scared and in fear
(after the first revelation was bought to him) he SAW was comforted by his wife.
When asked who deserves the most respect he Saw replied mother twice and on
asking to continue by his companions he Saw replied father once after.  The
position of women in Islam is simple honor. From the times of the past to the
times of the future, women obeying the commands of Allah SWT can never be
degraded. Independency depends on what you think of it a person can never be
independent; he relies on Allah at all times. How can the media portray
independent women when no person can be independent? Is it one more fantasy they
give women to fulfill their desires? Think about the reality of all that has
been stated, being a women in Islam is honor, being a women in the western
society is being evil A women will never be equal to a man, unless in the
sight of Allah.
Allah says in the Quran:

033.035. For Muslim men and women,- for believing men and women, for devout men
and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and
constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in
Charity, for men and women who fast (and deny themselves), for men and women who
guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in God's praise,-
for them has God prepared forgiveness and great reward.

Be free my sisters
Escape from your deep mire
Don hijab today my friend
And all Islams attire

Avoid all those sickly stares
Or whistles from afar
Walk down the street with dignity
Take pride in who you are

Strength lies in anonymity
Be a shadow in the crowd
Until you speak and interact
When your voice will carry loud

Youre a smart girl Emma
Wear this across your hair
Dont be subjugated by man kind
An object of despair

To use your very words my friend
Let your banner be unfurled
Dont blindly follow all around
DECLARE YOUR FREEDOM TO THE WORLD.

May Allah bestow Mercy and his Blessings upon his Prophet SAW and his companions

May Allah bring the truth and reality of Islam to all those searching for it and
May he accept the efforts of all those in his path yearning for it. May Allah
bestow mercy upon this creation, verily he is the merciful the wise. May Allah
reveal the beauty of Islam that Kuffars try to conceal. May the blessing of
Allah be upon the final ummah of the final Prophet (PBUH). May the mercy of
Allah show no bounties and limits and show the youth of today the reality of
life and the power of Allah. May the youth today recognize the consequences and
change and alas only Allah guides. May we all come to recognize the short life
the harsh death and our ultimate goal of the life after. May we all realize the
truth in theyre being no satisfaction from worldly material and look onto the
hereafter for ultimate satisfaction. May we all be aware of the curse of the
west the greed with money and the illusion of life. May the love for the prophet
increase in the hearts of believers and enter in to those of the non-believers.
May Allah show the way for those who cannot see it, destroy those who try to
destroy it and make it clearer for those already on it. And in every war, in
every land, in every heart may the Muslims have the final victory! Ameen
