Order in Family

Amin Ahsan Islahi

Islahi likens family to the institution of state. A state is required to be headed by a person; a family is also required to have a head. It can be husband or wife, but cannot be both.

Islahi’s assertion is in favour of man. In his view, man possesses those qualities which are required for the custodianship of family. However, it does not mean that man is superior to woman in all walks of life.

There are certain areas where women are ahead of men. For example, man cannot take care of the children as can a woman.

There is an inherent difference between man and woman. Man has an edge over woman in some physical aspects. Any step in the direction of equating both has proved futile.

Islahi considers all such moves a war against God and human wisdom. In the modern times most countries of the world equate women with men.

Legal and constitutional equality does not mean that they become equal in all fields of life.

Equality in Islam

Men and women are created equal in their basic humanity, and all have the shared lineage and dignity of Allah’s creation and privilege of man over the other creatures of His creation.

Discrimination due to race, sex, color, lineage, class, region or language is vehemently prohibited in Islam to avoid the artificial barriers between the privileged and underprivileged.

Equality does not mean that all are exactly alike since there is no denial about natural differences.

The two genders complement and complete each other. Allah the Exalted says in the Glorious Qur’an:

“O mankind! Fear and revere your Lord, Who created you from a single person, created from it its mate, and from them scattered (like seeds) countless men and women; so fear Allah, through Whom you demand your mutual (rights), and (reverence) the wombs (that bore you): for Allah ever watches over you.”  (Surat An-Nisa’:1)

Cleanliness means purification. In Islam it includes all aspects of life, cleanliness of body, heart, speech, actions, food, drink, clothes and streets and suburbs; it is physical and moral purification. The most important of which is getting our hearts clean from polytheism. Allah says: “O you (Muhammad) enveloped in garments, arise and warn! And magnify your Lord (Allah)! And purify your garments. And keep away from ar-rujz (the idols)!” (Surah Al-Muddathir: 1-5).

These were among the first verses that were revealed to the Prophet (Peace be upon him), in which he (Peace be upon him) is ordered by Allah (Glory be to him) to purify his garments from filth and his heart from polytheism and not to approach whatever can lead to idolatry.
