SISTERS IN ISLAM (SIS); THE ERRING APOSTLE OF ‘GOOD OLD’ WESTERNIZATION.

Politics (Siasah) is not new to Islam. As a religion which covers every aspects of human life to the very microcosms of it, Islam is not as what appears to those who seeks a ‘modern’ Islam; a chip of the old block which needs indirect ‘modern touch’ but in fact; a completed order (syumul). It is only with the existence of this small group of people who are astonished by the Quranic verse:” And if you fear you cannot do justice, marry only one, that would be best for you", and yet, determined to interpret the contents of The Holly Book that the lot governed by their outrageous desires start to think bravely that it is not they that need Islam, but it is Islam which needs them, hence, this blasphemous community. I would, with much patience, remind you from this community that those who minister the Syariah Law know not just the exact meaning of Quranic Verses but also the history behind it and the Hadith relating to it, the very people who you call Taliban heads. They also know that the verse which states that there is no compulsion in religion (al Baqarah, 2:256; Yunus, 10:99-100; al Ghashiyah, 88:22) is an address to the non-believers, not the Muslims. So I’d advice; stop making fool of yourself.

Amina Wadud (I refuse to admit her doctorate because of the embarrassment she caused the Ummah when she led the prayer) is a confused woman and yet the saluted scholar of this community. It is with her ‘guidance’ that the people of this community with their rich fallacies are actively associating mistreatments and unjust conducts of the religious people and the Syariah courts inclusive; their personnel with Islam. It is clear what Zainah Anwar meant when she said that the issue of politics should not be misconceived with that of religion. Yet, she made such association as above mentioned and took her ‘Zainah Dream’ to a well-known stage; the political stage? Here is what I would say; it gives the ugly impression to those who know what politics really mean to not provide substantial evidence when you sum up a group of people negatively while preaching your fresh, homemade version of Islam.

It might be because of this community that we are seeing celebrities even in Malaysia who do not wear hijab, expose their Aurat and mingles without thinking about Halal and Haram that give Salam, say Alhamdulillah and Insya-Allah. It might be because of this community that people are using Islam for their own pleasures like wearing hijab only when attending Syariah Court (so that people think that they are good), fighting over issues which threaten the position of Islam in legislation side by side with the non-believers like the one of Lina Joy, be proud to declare their disbelieve and who knows; accept what are similar to the Indonesian Panca Sila components. This is appalling.

Hitherto, it is clear that SIS’s fight is no difference than that of the Western Women Movements; equality through liberty. But will this Westernization bring us any good so to ask; did it bring any good to the west? Like the denying of hijab in some Islamic Countries, equality did nothing but further lower women’s strata in the society. Stop SIS!
