Here i would like to take an opportunity to clarify some misconceptions about Dr. Farhat Hashmi. When i mentioned her in my previos post here, i received some nasty comments about her.
“She is dangerous because of her extremist views. she wants to make muslims barbaric and backwards by liiterally calling for muslims to be like they were in the 7th century literally.she also support beating women, ENFORCEMENT of body hijab, not just the head covering.”
Firstly, Im sure that the person who wrote this comment, being a Male has never ever ventured inside an Al Huda Campus. So how in the world can he make such blatant statements about her!?? This is nothing but slander!
The first time i went to an Al Huda Campus was around 4 to 5 years back. In fact my mother zabardasti took me there coz she had to buy some books from there – i had no intention of going there and listening to a dars but had no other choice. At that time i didnt even wear a duppata on my head – let alone a hijab or a jilbab or any other head covering! No one stopped me from entering, not a single person told me to cover my head or wear a hijab or any such thing! If you are a student, you have to wear a scarf coz thats a UNIFORM of the institute! other people who visit were wearing what ever they wanted! There was NO enforcement of full body hijab. I even listened to Dr. Farhat Hashmi delivering a lecture a number of times and there was nothing extreme about what she was teaching.
Now if you don’t think a 4-5 year old story is applicable.. then i can tell you the current situation as well. I go 2 – 3 days every week to an Al Huda Campus. I wear the head covering ( Scarf) and i dont wear an abaya yet. i.e. “a full body hijab”. No one has ever forced me to wear a scarf or an abaya and no one says anything… so the allegation that she enforces hijab is totally wrong. The decision to wear the hijab (scarf) was totally mine and not due to Farhat hashmi or any other person.
She doesnt enforce hijab.. Allah Subhana Watala has! And when women read whats written in the Quran, they wear the hijab and jilbab happily and willingly. No body can ever force a women to make such drastic changes – the change comes from within after reading Allah’s words!
Another allegation about Dr. Farhat is that she is banned in Canada. For everybody information.. she is currently in Canada doing a Quran course and Alhamdulilah a building has also been purchased for a new Al Huda Campus there.
May Allah reward her for enlightening so many people’s lives with the teachings of Quran and Sunnah
