16 Days of Activism against abuse

Jumah Khutbah against child and woman abuse

What a moving Khutbah, I head today. The Imaam was very dynamic. He spoke about how Islam came to empower woman by abolishing the practise that was rife in pagan Arabia of burying children alive. He told us the story of Umar (RA) and the Nile, a beautiful story against woman abuse. He spoke about how we abuse our mothers, sisters, spouses and children mentally, physically and emotionally. He spoke about the rights of unborn children. May Allah protect us from performing or experiencing such acts.

What moved me to core was his warning he gave to all the woman batterers, child bashers and molesters.

TO ALL YOU WHO ARE BEING ABUSIVE TO ANOTHER HUMAN BEING ESPECIALLY WOMAN (AND CHILDREN), BE WARNED OF THE DAY WHEN YOU STAND IN FRONT OF THE CREATOR OF THAT  PERSON/WOMAN.

THEY MAY NOT BE ABLE TO STAND UP FOR THEMSELVES TODAY BUT BE WARNED OF THE DAY YOU STAND UP IN FRONT OF THE CREATOR OF THAT DEFENSELESS MOTHER OR CHILD.

Interesting to see this intiative has also started internationally
