Respect the women around you, Habib Ali al-Jifri

Do You Respect The Women Around You? – Habib Ali al-Jifri

Islam has done a favour for women; the oft-repeated rhetoric about the status of women in pre-Islamic Arabian society seems to suggest, but how true is this statement today? Habib Ali al-Jifri invites the male listener to reflect and ask timely questions regarding the role and status of women Islam.

Do you respect her? What is the relationship between you and the women in your life? Do you respect them? What examples do you have in building and maintaining your relationships?

Take Care Of Your Women

In his final sermon, the Messenger of God ﷺ, after the express call to hold fast to prayer, urged the community to take care of the women.  Habib Ali explores this statement along the central theme of worship; he invites us to explore the lives of the  female companions surrounding the Prophet ﷺ to guide us on our way.  What were their roles in society? What was their voice and what impact did they have at an individual and communal level? What was their relationships with the Prophetﷺ?

Call to Rabita

Rabita constitutes building a wholesome relationship with others; specifically women. The foundation is cultivating a relationship with Allah by becoming the true worshipful servant. A journey of body, heart and spirit that illuminates our external relationships.
