Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said and allah how naniko and then later on in the same Hadith, what Bill Burnett, so he said, burying your daughters. Now, if you're a non Muslim, you need a little background on this the situation for women in the Arabian Peninsula at the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was really, really dangerous and demeaning. Women were treated like property. And daughters, in particular, were despised. People wanted to have sons. And they looked at daughters as a liability. And so they would actually practice infanticide. They would bury their daughters alive, in order to get rid of them so that they didn't have to take care of
them. So Islam changed all this. And one of the most dramatic reversals that human history has ever known. Islam took these people, this group of people who are practicing this evil, evil thing, and it taught people to respect women and to respect daughters, and just within a generation, women had rights that women in Europe or North America wouldn't get until the 1900s. Right, women were able to, to own property to start a business to inherit, they were able to initiate marriages and initiate divorces and all these sorts of things. Right, so this part of the Hadith, the saying of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam
hits at the worst behavior that these people were doing and in no uncertain terms very much speaking truth to this kind of evil power that was in place. Allah has prohibited you no excuses. This is completely unacceptable behavior. You can't bury your children specifically baring your daughters, and another Hadith he stressed the good treatment of them and their inherent equality to the sons and to boys.
