Cause you know

I don’t know why the internet is so depressing these days. I won’t link to the author of the quote below to avoid problems, but it’s about women watching international soccer matches in Saudi Arabia.

استبشر بعض الاعلاميين بقرب السماح للنساء بحضور مباريات الدوري .. الذي دعاني الى كتابة هذا المقال كان قد عرضت حلقة على القناة الرياضية تؤيد هذا التوجه .. حيث قال المعلق “ابراهيم الجابر” أنه يتمنى أن يحضر المباريات مع إحدى نسائه
أوصلنا الى مرحلة من عدم الغيره على محارمنا أن تقول هذا الكلام وأمام الجميع ؟

Ah.
Objects? Objects? Objects?

  2. 7aram el banat ye7daro mobarayat!!! I never read in any history book that women used to go to football games in the time of Islamic KHELAFE, so how come want this now?

  3. 3an jad depressing …
    I hear you roba :D

  4. Nas

    of course in Islam it’s very clear that women cannot drive cars or watch football matches or run marathons. i think it’s written in the quran.

    somewhere in the back

  5. thats weird and stupid, there isn’t anything wrong with a woman watching a football game! and by the way that has nothing to do with islam now its a matter of personla opinions thats all

  6. I don’t think car or football was mentioned in the quran

  7. Of course it wasn’t mentioned in the Quran. Nas was being sarcastic!
    This is something purely in regards to culture, but sometimes, culture is stronger than religion.

  8. Roba, what’s wrong sister?
    You are getting “infideized”(I know it’s not a word) more and more every day.
    I will send you a bunch of nice websites were you could get educated and feel better. Though your brother,dad,or husband should accompany you while you are browsing them! You will learn how to wear the Burkha that I will send you as a gift, how to make bombs, and study about different weapons, and watch/listen/and read really insightful and peaceful ceremonies.
    So you will finally realize that the internet is not depressing! It’s full of many great websites our brethren keep updating with useful stuff!

    >>ALA’A IBRAHIM

  9. “حيث قال المعلق “ابراهيم الجابر” أنه يتمنى أن يحضر المباريات مع إحدى نسائه”
    والنسوان الباقيات بظلن بالمطبخ؟

  10. Tsk tsk tsk. Attending football games alongside men? Bed3ah, Kofr we zandaqah. when are we going to learn not to blindly imitate the immoral west and stick to our own tolerant understanding and not-at-all sexist culture?

    And why would women wanna go and sit alongside men, huh? So that they can show off their mafaten we ye7arakoh el ghara2ez 3and el regall so that they would be tempted to sin? I mean, what if a strange man sat next to a strange woman and she rubbed her arm against his by mistake, and the poor man ended up not being able to take it anymore and raped her, would that make you happy ya roba? Is that what You want? Would it be better if he saw her uncoverd hair and ended up masturbating while having impure thoughts about her because of seeing that 3awrah? Do you really want men to sin that much? Is that the price you are willing to pay to have men and women sitting together at a football game? Rape, masturbation and kofr and zandaqah? Would that make you happy ya roba? would it?

    We have to understand that our culture is different then the western culture. That in ours men are not responsible for anything and no better then horny dogs all the time, and therefore it is the women’s responibility to cover up their charms in order not to entice the men to have impure thoughts and get their pee-pees all excited. Cause if they do ya roba, the blame, and all of the blame will be placed on you and your fellow women, and you will then be sent to hell. Hell ya roba, where you will be hanged from your hair and burned alive while el Tho3ban el akra3 eats your flesh. Is that what you want ya roba? Is that what you really want?

    Yeah. didn’t think so.

    Now please, go wear your burkaw and pray to god for forgiveness for daring to think. Rational thought is a sin of the highest order ya roba, especially for women, who are na2esat 3a2l we deen to begin with. Women are only supposed to know how to cook, give men 7a2ohem el shar3y when they demand it and stay home and raise the many many kids they are suppsoed to give birth to. That’s the righteous path of the simpl..I mean right-minded woman, and you want to be righteous, don’t you?

    sigh…..

  11. this is called “ekhtilat” whats wrong with you ruba ??? :P

    before a couple of weeks, there was an international football match against Sweden and they decided to allow women to watch the match … check this link: http://fifa.com/en/womens/index/0,1625,113660,00.html?articleid=113660

    and here is some photos from the match: http://www.elaph.com/ElaphWeb/Sports/2006/1/121614.htm

  12. Well .. as a Saudi .. can I say something !

    I don’t agree with the quote .. yet .. I think the driver for such thinking .. which is also exactly the same as NO for women driving .. is only FEAR!
    fear of possible things that could happen afterwards !!
    Despite the fact that SO many “bad” things are happening in the country .. anyways !!!

  13. abu-joori,

    i agree, it is fear. i personally an terrified with women’s driving.

  14. Asalamu Alaykum

    I wrote this up in reponse to both the article and many of the interesting comments that people left behind on here.

    Now, I’m no scholar but…

    We were told to cover our 3awrah, right? To do what? To conserve our modesty, no? You can’t deny that unmarried sex, (in most extreme cases: rape and incest) are happening, which seem to be at the rise at that. Alot of the youth and men do it cause they like to see a woman in tight pants. Same way a woman loves to see a hunk in tight jeans and spandex shirt. It’s natural to be attracted to the body, it’s an enjoyment that Allah put in us in the first place. Didn’t the prophet say to the Men of Islam :”You look for 4 traits in a woman: Her lineage, her wealth, her beauty, and her deen. And the best of all (and that should come before the all else) is her deen.”

    So beauty IS a factor, but the shaytaan can obviously play with that factor. He’ll make us abuse the beauty that Allah entrusted us with, he’ll make us expose it. Remember, zinaa happens a different levels. First of which is with the eyes, either seeing something wrong or catching another person of the opposite sex’s eyes. Ever hear of infactuation? One thing may lead to another after eye contact, you can’t say it doesn’t happen, cause it does. So, to prevent this, Allah and His messenger ordered us to dress modestly, to preserve this beauty and not to abuse it, and most importantly to ruin the plans that Shaytaan has for us otherwise. (Note: to keep this enjoyment pleasurable, we keep our beauty healthy and preserved for the one you will want to marry and love and enjoy life with).

    However, for the men to to enforce EXTRA regulations upon the women that are totally unnecessary, then there’s something wrong with the men, NOT the women. I mean, so what if the women enjoyed a football game with her husband? Didn’t the Prophet Muhammad (SAAW) enjoy watching dances and performances with Aisha (RAA)? Therefore, there should be more action taking place to stop stuff like pornography and other similar things from entering and dirtying the minds of our men (and women too, some of them have problems as well). Not all men and women want to strive to be pious, righteous people, however the governent of the nation should be striving to encourage that idea, and to enforce people to stay away from that which harms them and others.

    And that’s my lil’ rant on the issue.

    And Allah knows best.

    Asalamu Alaykum
