المرأة.. وفكرة تعميق الفروق
منذ أن انطلق يوم المرأة العالمي في عام 1908م من كوبنها جن بالدنمارك، وطالبت النساء فيه بالخير العام والمساواة بينهن وبين الرجال من حيث الأجور وحق التملك والتصويت،وأصداء تلك المطالبات تتردد في أرجاء مجتمعاتنا الإسلامية التي كفل الإسلام فيها تلك الحقوق وأكثر منذ أربعة عشر قرناً ونيف .
رائع أن ينال الإنسان (رجلاً أو امرأة) حقوقه المشروعة، ويمارسها في حياته بطبيعية وتلقائية، وسئ جداً الزج بالمرأة في صراع مع الرجل دون وجود حيثيات منطقية لذلك الصراع.
ديننا الإسلامي العظيم أكد على المساواة بين الرجل والمرأة ، لكنه لم يغفل تلك الفروق الجذرية بينهما ، وهي فروق لا تقلل من شأن أحدهما أو ترفع من شأن الآخر إنما هي مزايا وخصائص في كل منهما تؤهله للقيام بدوره ومسؤولياته لذا كانت نتائج العديد من الدراسات المنطقية حين أوضحت الاختلافات بين الجنسين في النواحي الجسدية والنفسية وفي أسلوب التفكير وطريقة التعامل مع المواقف والمشكلات ، من ذلك تبين أن المنادة بالمساواة على الإطلاق بين الجنسين نوع من الغباء الذي لن يتحمل تبعاته وأضراره ومآزقه سوى المرأة .
الغرب يدعي ظلم المرأة واضطهادها في المجتمعات العربية وحملات تحريرها تستعر وتشتد في الآونة الأخيرة وقد صدق كثيرون تلك الدعاية المغرضة ، فهل وصلت بنا حسن النوايا إلى أن نتوقع أن يعرفنا الغرب أكثر مما نعرف أنفسنا؟!!! أم جعلتنا ثقتنا العمياء بهم نؤمن على كل ما يدعوننا إليه؟!!!

Woman and the notion of deepening gender related differences
Woman’s World Day was officially announced in 1908 in Copenhagen (Denmark). Since then, women have been calling for equality with men with regards to wages and ownership and voting rights. Today, these calls are heard in Islamic societies. As a matter of fact, however, Islam had indeed safeguarded the rights of women, including the aforementioned, more than fourteen centuries ago.
It is wonderful for a human being to acquire his/her legitimate rights and to practise them freely and spontaneously in everyday life. The bad thing however is to make woman engaged with man in a struggle for no good reason.
Our glorious Islam has ever underlined the principle of equality between man and woman but without overlooking those basic differences that exist between man and woman. Such differences do not undermine or hail the roles of either of them. Rather, these differences qualify each of them to carry out their own roles and responsibilities effectively. Many studies therefore arrived at logical findings showing the differences between man and woman in their body, psychology, style of thinking and handling of situations and problems that they face. Hence appears that it is unwise to call for absolute equality between man and woman or else this would have negative consequences and could cause harm and damage that would affect no other than the woman herself.
It is claimed in the Western hemisphere that women are oppressed in the Arab societies. Such an accusation has recently and increasingly been accompanied with lobbying of campaigns to “free” the Arab woman. These campaigns unfortunately have deluded many of us in the Islamic/Arab world. I wonder: Is it the good intentions that make us expect that the West knows us better than we do know ourselves? Or is it our blind trust in them that makes us bless and follow whatever they call us for

Calling for woman’s rights or widening the gender gap?
International Women’s Day was declared on March 8th, 1908; it is rooted in the Western centuries-old struggle of women to participate in society on an equal footing with men without any discrimination in attaining such basic rights as wages and voting. Since then, such demands have been recurrent in our Islamic societies with a striking paradox that Islam had indeed offered guarantees for woman’s rights many centuries ago.
While freely conceding that all human beings, men and women, must have access to their basic legitimate rights and to freely exercise these rights in their day-to-day lives, it is highly deplorable that women are now made to engage with men in a meaningless struggle that would do nothing but widening the gap between men and women.
Our great Islam has certainly endorsed the principle of man-woman e7quality, yet it did not hide an eye on the striking differences between the two. These differences are not only physiological. They are also mental and behavioral that would stimulate a man to think and react differently from what a woman would typically do in the same situation. By no means are these differences a sign for the superiority of man over woman or the vice versa. The differences are there just to account for the different and distinctive roles and responsibilities of each of them. How ridiculous would it be then to call for absolute equality between men and women! It is the woman alone who will have to bear the crises and harms brought about by such a fallacious “equality”!
The West is now wailing over the “oppressed women” in the Arab societies, and there have been ferocious endeavors to flare up such “pro-woman” claims in the Arab world. What is regrettable, though, is that some Arabs have been deluded by the Western propaganda. What the hell is going on with us? Is it our good faith in others that makes us expect the West to know us better than we know ourselves! Or, is it our blind trust in them that makes us slavish to their wills and whims!

Women: Gapping the bridge between the two sexes
Since the Woman’s Day was launched in 1908 in Copenhagen/Denmark, women have always been calling for their general good and for equality with men in wages, property ownership and voting. Repercussions of such calls have reached the Islamic world where Islam did already secure for women such a rights, even more, some 14 centuries ago.
While it is wonderful for every human being (men and women) to attain their legitimate rights and exercise the same spontaneously in their day-to-day lives, it is very bad to get the woman involved in a struggle with men on irrational grounds.
Our great Islam, which has always underlined that men and women are equal, has never overlooked the idea that men are different from women. The differences between the two sexes are perceived by Islam as necessary for each of them to carry out their respective roles and cater for their responsibilities in the society. However, differences do not, and may not, make men supersede women or vice versa.
The findings of various pieces of research show that differences between the two sexes are manifested both psychologically and physiologically. Their behaviours are also different and also are their reactions to situations and their approaches to addressing problems. Thus, there is no sense in calling for absolute equality between men and women, for should this be the case, the consequences, harm and predicaments all would be endured by the woman only.
The West has contended that women in the Arab world are oppressed and aggrieved, and lobbying in this regard has recently intensified to “set free” the “aggrieved” Arab woman to the extent that some people here have indeed started to believe in that prejudiced propaganda of the West. This would therefore urge us to ask ourselves the inevitable question: “Is it our good faith in others that makes us foolishly think that the West knows us better than we do know ourselves?” or “Is it such a blind ?trust that makes us do whatever they want us to do?
