(In response to a mail from a viewer saying, “Can women with uncovered heads read the Qur’an?”)
They impose a thousand and one conditions on women. Why should she have to cover her head when reading the Qur’an? What has that got to do with anything? What has the Qur’an got to do with her head? She reads the Qur’an at home, so why cover her head? Their aim here is to keep people away from the Qur’an. If you impose a thousand such conditions, that will keep people away. First you have to purify yourself, they say. You must cover your head and face the qibla. How can someone reading the Qur’an in a bus face the qibla? Astonishing. They do everything possible to keep people away from the Qur’an. “We can never understand the Qur’an, even if we read it for 40 years,” they say. Allah says that the disbelievers cannot understand the Qur’an. He says there is a veil before their eyes and minds. He says the disbelievers cannot understand it. Only believers can understand it, He says. People with pure minds. Allah does not cite any age, either. Every Muslim can understand it, He says.
(International aid agencies have reported that nitrate and other waste products have been found in drinking water in Gaza. They say that the number of Palestinian children made ill and receiving treatment because of this has doubled in the last five years. Aid agencies say that medical equipment cannot be got through because of the Israeli embargo over the last five years, and that they find it hard even to locate clean water. They have called for a total lifting of the embargo.)
This is a legitimate demand, of course. All kinds of equipment, including drugs, needs to be brought in with no difficulty. There must be no difficulties or obstacles. This again stems from a lack of Islamic Unity. And they do not want to be at ease. A balance needs to be established. The body has no head. It is all divided. The region has cancer. The body is attacking itself, but if it has a head, Islamic Unity, then everywhere, Israel, Turkey and Palestine, will be at ease, and peace will come very quickly.2012-10-08 10:25:34
