monamy salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh My name is sorcery. And today I will be talking with you guys about a book I wrote called our Muslim woman oppressed. Many times, we hear in the media the buzz word Muslim woman or press, we hear on radio shows, we hear it on television. And it surprises me and amazes me that people who uses these words have no idea what they're saying, as a Muslim woman, I've been searched, mocked, humiliated, that and made fun of many a time because I choose, and the word is choose to obey Allah subhanaw taala obey God's command, that we should dress modestly and we should wear the hijab, that is a commandment from Allah subhanaw taala. And as a
Muslim woman, he was still being him. There are many Muslims who don't and that's between them and Allah subhanaw taala. But
choosing to obey Allah azza wa jal does not make me oppressed, nor devalued, nor less intelligent, and
nor having no rights. So as a Muslim woman, I've learned tremendously from the true tax of Islam. And going back to the Quran and Sunnah into the life of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and finding out what is our rights, what is our roles, and how our Muslim woman is so empowered back then? And why are we not as empowered nowadays? Is it because the media is telling us we're not empowered? And we're allowing them to always be worth it? Because we're too busy? We're not choosing to go out there and fulfill the roles we should be? Or is it because we're not truly understanding what our roles and our rights are? So this book called our Muslim woman oppressed,
this book came out because of that. And it's really geared not just for non Muslims, but it's also good for Muslims who don't know, their roles as women, and the rights. There's a lot of women who think culture is religion, and it's not. And this book was written to really separate the two. And in Islam, we have tremendous rights, Mashallah. And in culture, we usually don't. And so I want to separate the two and let people know that practicing was the moment or the most powerful woman on earth Alhamdulillah. And so if you choose to learn more about the dignified ways that Muslim woman live, and truly what their rules are, and what the rights are, and why they choose to be how they
are, then you would want to get this book our Muslim woman oppressed is a book you definitely want to get on your shelves and teach your children grandchildren. Because there's a lot of things we don't know about Muslims and who better to get it from then people who actually are Muslims. Does that go ahead? A salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
