What amazes me about the Qur’an is its unique way of presenting to us its teachings and the consistency of thought, which require the use of brain and mental effort in order to understand its wisdom while its clarity is more crystal than a beautiful shining day.
The Qur’an says that the first human being to have been created is Adam – the father of humanity. Then, God created Eve – the mother of humanity, from Adam, as if a piece of him of taken apart and his mate was formed.
God could have created Adam and Eve separately and made them need each other. However, there is a significance in this type of creation. This shows that Eve was not merely another human being or creature to whom Adam was attracted.
No! Eve was part of Adam. Literally and biologically, they were two halves of the same whole. A part of Adam was taken apart and formed another human being in a way so both they were compatible with each other and both they would complete and complement each other to form the same original unit – complement and balance each other physically, sexually, emotionally, in terms of skills and in terms of genes in the creation of fetus.
Allah says in the Qur’an in the chapter named ‘the Women’,
“O humanity! Be mindful of your Lord Who created you from a single soul, and from it He created its mate.” [4:1]
In another ayah, the Qur’an says, “And one of His signs is that He created for you spouses from among yourselves so that you may find comfort in them. And He has placed between you compassion and mercy. Surely in this are signs for people who reflect.” [30:21]
Indeed, the fact that Eve was created from Adam in order to become two parts of a whole, each needing the other, completing and balancing each other is so significant and we can witness this truth. This shows that misogyny is not natural, but political. How can a man hate a part of his own?!
When I compare the Qur’an’s narrative and its wisdom with what we can observe in nature, it all makes sense. The Qur’an is saying that human being was a single person, then divided into two different parts so they can complete each other, but they are not the same. This shows that a man cannot complete a man and a woman cannot complete a woman. This is how life functions.
Yet, Secularism and the corrupt West are trying to mock the whole humanity in a way that should abash all of us for this immorality that the world is sinking into. I don’t think that the whole human history has ever witnessed a more misogynistic ideology than the British Secularism, which is obsessed with control and political oppression. Women have never been more oppressed than what the corrupt West is doing to them. The western politics is misogynistic and immoral. Slowly but surely, the corrupt West is pushing its misogynistic agendas ahead by redefining women and marriage every time they are confronted with economic crisis.
