Log Kya Kahenge

Don’t stay in an abusive relationship because of log kya kahenge. #Domesticviolence is oppression and #oppression is never allowed in Islam.

It is important to know and understand that Islam does NOT permit men to hit women. The Prophet (PBUH) never understood or acted on the controversial verse of hitting one’s wife as a physical act but rather a symbolic gesture of SAYING I am upset. Marriage is meant as a mercy between two souls not oppression.

“And one of His signs is that He created for you spouses from among yourselves so that you may find comfort in them. And He has placed between you compassion and mercy.” Qur’an (30:21)

Peace requires Courage

Peace requires courage. Away from all the voices explaining why their side is right, oppressed, or ethical. Peace, goes beyond the commotion, it goes beyond picking sides. It is being able to hear the other person speak before combatting them with an answer. It is seeing the other side as equally human, equally in the right, equally fragile. It requires the ability to see the enemy through an altruistic lens of forgiveness, empathy, and vulnerability.

The Prophet, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was sent as a mercy to all of humanity – not just to the Muslim ummah but also to those who had once been against him (PBUH). Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “Never aspire for confronting your enemies (in a fight). Pray to God to be among those who seek living peacefully with others.”
