An imam from South Carolina delivered remarks in his mosque in Colombia that went like this: “The man is in charge of the woman.”
And the woman’s biggest job in life is to “obey” the man.
“He is the head of her, the owner of her, the ruler of he
“And he is the one who corrects her when she goes astray.
“That is because men are better than women.
“A man is better.
“The man, in general, is better than the woman.
“Not every man is better than every woman.
“But men, in general — Allah exalted them. This is the sunna of Allah. Some people say this man is getting crazy, now he is getting old. Now he doesn’t know what he is talking about.”
“Yes, I know that I am in America and that also we have freedom of speech. This is what I believee …
“Allah said ‘men are exalted.’ …
“As a result of this we find Allah has told us a nation cannot have a woman as ruler.
“No nation that makes their governor a woman can ever succeed. …
“A woman cannot leave her house without asking for approval of her husband …
“A woman is not supposed to welcome anybody or permit anybody in her house without her husband’s approval. …
“A woman cannot travel without a guardian.
“Because women are as prisoners in your hands or in your house. Captivity. She is in a form captivity … She is a prisoner.”
MEMRI also shows different clips of the same imam speaking about how to determine if a wife is righteous. Among his remarks: “The way she is acting, the way she is behaving.”
Also: “If he commands her, she will obey him.”
