The Qur’an reveals that men and women can be present together in society
From Mr. Adnan Oktar’s interview on A9 TV on 3 November 2013
ADNAN OKTAR: Women are given their rights. That was done for colored people at one time. We allow them to get on busses. We let them stand for election. That kind of thing. This should all have been resolved a long time ago. These disgraces should be quietly put right and closed. I am ashamed of this. It is so wrong. “We have done women a favor,” they say. “I am giving you permission to wear trousers.” Then she says, “Thank you so much. I am very happy.” Men say this, as if they are granting a favor. “We are giving you the right to stand for election,” they say, and women duly rejoice. This is very wrong. This should have been done away with long ago. The history of the world is filled with this error. There was an intensive struggle against it in the time of our Prophet (pbuh). Muslims were learning for the first time then that they could eat together. Jews used to have men’s and women’s sections. Polytheists had men’s and women’s sections and areas. They all ate separately. Christians kept men and women separate. Sabaeans kept men and women separated. God says in one verse that they can eat together. Muslim men and women then ate together for the first time. They went on the pilgrimage [hajj] together for the first time, in line with their natures. Men and women are together everywhere in the Qur’an. Angels came to the wife of the Prophet Abraham (pbuh). But she did not realize they were angels and happily talked and laughed and joked with them. She even laughed out loud. The Prophet Moses (pbuh) spoke with women. Our Prophet (pbuh) looked at women and liked them. Had your model applied, my brother, the Prophet could never have seen women and liked them. So they moved around in such a way as to be liked. And he looked at and liked them. As it says in one verse, “even though their beauty might be pleasing to you,..” (33/52). It is not talking about the color of their clothing here, is it? Our Prophet likes the women, not their clothing. There is nothing hard to understand about this. They have invented a religion of their own and are trying to live by that. They are pretending not to understand.
لَّا يَحِلُّ لَكَ النِّسَاءُ مِن بَعْدُ وَلَا أَن تَبَدَّلَ بِهِنَّ مِنْ أَزْوَاجٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَكَ حُسْنُهُنَّ إِلَّا مَا مَلَكَتْ يَمِينُكَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ رَّقِيبًا
Not lawful to you, [O Muhammad], are [any additional] women after [this], nor [is it] for you to exchange them for [other] wives, even if their beauty were to please you, except what your right hand possesses. And ever is Allah , over all things, an Observer. Surat Al-'Aĥzāb (The Combined Forces) - 52
