High-quality Muslims who value women will appear in the time of the system of the Mahdi
From Mr. Adnan Oktar’s interview on A9 TV on 12 November 2013
ADNAN OKTAR: All over the world a great many women are treated as if they were second-class citizens. What business is it of yours what they wear? What business is it of yours how they move around? It is unbelievable, this male dominance. I look at parliament and you can count the women on the fingers of one hand. I look at crowds of people and women are very rare. There are women with bare heads who go into parliament, masha’Allah, thanks be to God, but they are very rare and few in number. At least half of parliament should be women, so how has this come about? Do they pass laws about men? So how can you pass laws about women? Who are you to tell them to do this or do that? I am not talking about lawmakers, but people in general. Where do you get that right from? You must eat this and drink that, you must talk this way and sit that way, you can go here but not there… it is unbelievable. There is terrible oppression in the world. What business is it of yours? You cannot interfere. It is unbelievable that I should even have to tell you not to interfere. One of the major phenomena of the End Times will be that this oppression of women and injustice will completely disappear in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh). This is made explicit in the hadiths. They explicitly state that women will enjoy full security. “They will be able to go as far as Sham on their own.” What does going to Sham mean? It means total security. But not at the moment. We look at Muslim accounts, and the more oppressive and twisted they are, the better. They think they are describing Islam. Like Hindus, they regard suffering, a filthy home, filthy clothes and even bad breaths as sacred things. There are even accounts that sanctify those. God has given you all the means with which to be clean, but you stink and your breath stinks. They make excuses for it all. Muslims should smell like flowers, so what are you doing? This is a characteristic of hell. The people of hell have stinking breath and stinking bodies, these things are inflicted on them as a torment. But the people of paradise have fresh-smelling breath and bodies. They do not want women to use deodorants or perfumes, most of those people, or let us just say some of them, stink to high heaven. They really stink. My dear friends, why do you not use deodorants? “We are not allowed,” they say, “It is a sin.” So it is lawful for women to stink, is that right? Is that not a disgrace? Look what they have come to. Why do you humiliate yourselves like this? Why have you ended up like this? Women should smell like flowers, should be spotlessly clean, should smell of soap. But they say, “Mind you never go out like that.” Look at that mentality. The system of the Mahdi will do away with all these problems, insha’Allah.
