Perfect Justice: Debunking The Male Bias Myth – Yasir Qadhi


If you prick us, do we not bleed?


In act 3 scene 1 of Shakespeare’s The merchant of Venice on the equality and humanity of Jews a famous speech takes place,

I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?

The current reality could have one replace the word Jew with Muslim.

Sahaba understand it the best…


[فهم السلف]
قال ابن عباس للخوارج:
جئتكم من عند المهاجرين والأنصار، وعليهم أنزل القرآن، فهم أعلم بتأويله، وليس فيكم منهم أحد

Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنه said to the the khawarij:

I have come to you from amongst the alMuhajireen and the alAnsaar, and it was upon them that the Quran was revealed, so they are the most knowledgable with regards to it’s interpretation. And not one of them is amongst you.

An example of useless knowledge


Greek Logic and Greek Philosophy never made any contribution to human civilisation. Once people left this (for example in the field of natural sciences) they progressed. It is a stupid thing to bring these things to Islamic sciences such as usul al-fiqh and fiqh. It will never solve any problem.

These Ayaat seem to contradict?


فَوَرَبِّكَ لَنَسْأَلَنَّهُمْ أَجْمَعِين

[Shakir 15:92]
So, by your Lord, We would most certainly question them all,

فَيَوْمَئِذٍ لَا يُسْأَلُ عَنْ ذَنْبِهِ إِنْسٌ وَلَا جَانٌّ

[Shakir 55:39] So on that day neither man nor jinni shall be asked about his sin

Obviously not, because the Qur’an is perfect

أَفَلَا يَتَدَبَّرُونَ الْقُرْآنَ ۚ وَلَوْ كَانَ مِنْ عِنْدِ غَيْرِ اللَّهِ لَوَجَدُوا فِيهِ اخْتِلَافًا كَثِيرًا

[Shakir 4:82] Do they not then meditate on the Quran? And if it were from any other than Allah, they would have found in it many a discrepancy.

There is a few explanations of the above Ayat

Firstly there is two types of questions in Arabic

The first is:

Which is to ask a question in in order to gain information and Allah already knows what was, is, will be, and would be even if it has not happened.

The second is

Which is to chastise the questioner. While having knowledge of what they have done.

And and there are other explanations, but I found this interesting

Allamah Iqbaal poetry

One of the new things that we see some people doing, with no evidence in sharee’ah


Sheikh Bakr Abu Zaid:

“One of the new things that we see some people doing, with no evidence in sharee’ah, is that in prayer they try to align themselves with a person on the right if they are on the right hand side of the row, or to align themselves with a person on their left if they are on the left hand side of the row, and they turn their feet inward so that their ankles are touching the ankles of the people next to them.

This is something for which there is no basis in sharee’ah and it is going to the extreme in implementing the Sunnah. This is wrong on two counts.

The alignment of the row should begin from where the imam is standing. Whoever is on the right of the row should align himself by looking at those who are to his left (i.e., closer to the imam). Thus the line will be straightened and the gaps will be filled. Alignment is done by lining up necks, shoulders and ankles, and by completing the front rows.

But to try to spread the legs wide and turn the feet inward so that one’s ankles touch one’s neighbor’s ankles is an obvious mistake and an exaggeration, and a new interpretation which is indicative of going to extremes in trying to apply the Sunnah. It causes annoyance and is not prescribed in sharee’ah, and it widens the gaps between people standing in prayer.

That becomes apparent when the people prostrate, and when they stand up again they become distracted in trying to fill the gaps and turning their feet to make their ankles touch their neighbours’ ankles, which makes them miss out on what they should be doing, which is to make the toes point in the direction of the qiblah.

Doing that is like competing with one’s neighbor and trying to take his place. All of that is not prescribed in sharee’ah.”

So what is Christmas really about?

Is the tasbeeh/masbaha a bidda?

I find it strange some of the salafi brothers who follow a particular narrative dictated from Saudi, can out rightly label using the tasbeeh a bidda?
