verse from quran

وَلَا يَظْلِمُ رَبُّكَ أَحَدًا 

And your Lord does injustice to no one.

Surah 18. Al-Kahf, Ayah 49

I don’t get why it’s such a big deal that some people leave a fandom when their faves do something offensive to them? If a dark skinned Asian doesn’t want to support someone colorist like some VIXX members, that’s okay. If a Muslim doesn’t want to support CL for playing a verse from the Quran in MTBD, that’s fine. If a black person doesn’t want to support Rap Monster/Wendy for their racist impersonation of black people,that’s fine too. It’s not wrong to want to leave after very offensive things.

CL once again under the fire for using Quran verse in MTBD performance + Apology!

When she released her solo track “MTBD” back in 2014, the song had become highly controversial

when Muslims noticed that the background track sounded very much like a reading of a verse from the Quran. As the Quran is the central text of Islam, Muslims protested that it is extremely offensive and it should not be made light of by being put in a song or used for entertainment purposes of any form.

The Korea Muslim Federation had raised a formal complaint, and YG Entertainment had ultimately decided to take out the controversial part of the song out.

However, the unedited track made its way into CL’s performance in Los Angeles, and some fans were appalled that she had performed the controversial track again. Muslim fans are outraged and began using the trend #cl_stop_using_our_quran to protest CL and her music, and can be seen across social media platforms.

My edit.
May Allah keep us straight on the deen and away from shirk ameen.

Surah al furqan: verse 2-3

25:2 “He to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and who has not taken a son and has not had a partner in dominion and has created each thing and determined it with [precise] determination.”

25:3 “But they have taken besides Him gods which create nothing, while they are created, and possess not for themselves any harm or benefit and possess not [power to cause] death or life or resurrection.”

Honestly, one of the most frustrating things about Islam is the way it looks down on women. At a very young age we are taught to be submissive and that men are more important. Our lives are based on learning how to please our future husbands. Girls growing up in a muslim community are faced with constant reminders of what a husband wants and does not want in a women. Any other aspirations a girl might have are shoved aside, because nothing is as important as being a wife and a mother. As a matter of fact, that could be considered as the only valuable thing a woman can achieve. Its almost as if a women’s existence is purely to fulfill the needs of a man. Anyone could find proof of this kind of sexism quite easily by reading a few versus in the Quran or some quotes by the prophet Mohammed.

A verse from Quran:

“Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, … Good women are obedient. … As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them.” Quran 4:34

A quote by the Prophet:

“If a husband says to his wife to transform a yellow mountain into a black one or turn a black mountain into a white one, she should obey his orders”.  < The Hadith means that the woman should try to perform the hardest of the hard job assigned by her husband.

There are many more versus and quotes that demean women and the list of reasons that prove this religion to be sexist and unfair towards women could go on. It is more than obvious the degree of sexism encouraged by this religion.

I wish there was something I could do to help other women that are forced to abide by this sexist religion. It’s difficult when I’m not even able to help myself at times. I know from first hand experience how frustrating and depressing it could get; living in a society dominated by men. When the religion and culture feeds this imbalanced distribution of power, it can be very lonely and sometimes feel like no one is on your side. I find it difficult to comprehend that so many women accept a religion that sees them as lesser beings. And to be constantly reminded that women make up the majority of the “Hell Fire”. This has been used countless times by men as a distressing threat towards women and the main reason behind it is even more disturbing.  

As highlighted in this quote by the Prophet Mohammed:

“I was shown Hell and I have never seen anything more terrifying than it. And I saw that the majority of its people are women.” They said, “Why, O Messenger of Allah?” He said, “Because of their ingratitude (kufr).” It was said, “Are they ungrateful to Allah?” He said, “They are ungrateful to their companions (husbands) and ungrateful for good treatment. If you are kind to one of them for a lifetime then she sees one (undesirable) thing in you, she will say, ‘I have never had anything good from you.’” (Narrated by al-Bukhari, 1052)

This is an obvious method of allowing men to have more power over women. The fact that there are more women in hell, simply due to women being ungrateful to their husbands; to me is an obvious ploy to force women into accepting all the bullshit they have to deal with from men. It’s disgusting how blatantly sexism is emphasized in this religion. If you are unable to see through that and acknowledge that Islam is an extremely sexist religion, then I am sorry you have to live with believing it, especially if you are a woman.

Salaam, I like to do three things (when I remember), make Dhikr (Subhanallah, Alhamdullilah, AllahuAkbar), say "Allahumma inee authubika minal kabbas" as the prophet SAW would, or a verse from the Quran "Allahu la ilaha ilahu alayhi tawwakaltu wa hues rabul arshal atheem." Shukran wa Salaam

you know what bothers me about islamophobia, other than the seriously harmful effects it has on millions of people worldwide, is how it is never ever based on something factual? i have never seen the cool anti-sjw edgelord types on here have a problem with islam for some good reason - it is always IT PROMOTES VIOLENCE BC THE QURAN SAID KILL EVERYONE, or else ISLAM IS MISOGYNIST (the two most common ones i’ve seen). and for a community that prides itself on its fact-checking and ~logic~ this is actually laughable - because to understand islam you have to read the quran IN CONTEXT

let me repeat that

IN CONTEXT

which none of you people have done. i have yet to come across an intelligent, well-researched argument against islam that isn’t sourced by known biased, islamophobic websites. you people keep quoting the same verse from the quran over and over again claiming it says to kill all non-believers, without ever reading it in context (the context is war and it says you are allowed to defend yourself against those who oppress you in conditions of war) and then you pat yourself on the back for being so ~progressive~ and telling the muslims their religion is Wrong. or else you’ll use the hijab to claim islam is misogynistic and doesn’t give women their rights when the opposite is true - islam gave women rights 1400 years ago when women weren’t even considered to be people by the majority of the world. but nope, you made a horribly researched post about how islam oppresses women, go you! you really taught us! i feel so liberated now!!! thank you so much, O Wise People of Tumblr dot com!!!

you people keep saying shit about our prophet when none of you have ever studied in detail the sort of life he lived, the way he behaved with his people and other minorities and women, but you are quick to claim he married a 9 year old and other disgusting shit without taking into context the time period people lived in then, and how society was different. you just want to prove that you have some sort of high moral ground when it comes to religion, and islam is archaic, old-fashioned and backwards. well, congratulations. the only thing you’ve achieved, in my opinion, is to look ass-backwards in your own community which prides itself on fact-checking, logic and not buying into propaganda and edgy bullshit about social justice issues.

sorry, this got longer than i meant. i’m just really upset because a person whose blog i enjoyed, whom i am friends with, posted this kind of thing and it broke my heart, honestly. i’m not asking anyone to agree with my religion all the time, i’m just saying, as a bunch of people who pride yourselves on your Intellect and Logic, use some of that damn intellect and logic and do your fucking research. islamophobia is an actual thing and yeah it’s an ugly label, no one wants to be associated with it, but whoops, tough titty, son, your actions are actively harmful for millions of people worldwide, so i’ll thank you to keep your poorly researched, shit opinions to yourself.

Activists in Tennessee are trying to get Islam out of kids’ textbooks

Steve Gill is fighting against what he calls “Islamic indoctrination” in U.S. classrooms — and in Tennessee, he’s winning.

Word had gotten around that the most recent books the school board in White County had purchased contained verses from the Quran, the Islamic holy text. This did not sit well in the predominantly white, conservative, evangelical Christian community. So they called conservative radio host Steve Gill to help them.

Citizens Against Islamic Indoctrination was soon formed and they scored a major victory in White County.
