"Verily my solats, my ibadah, my life and my death I surrender to Almighty Allah, Creator and Lord of all the worlds. Never will I associate anything with Him. So am I commanded and I am of those who are Muslims."

Women Who Know Their Place ... and a Western idiot who obviously doesn't! :P

A woman's place......
 

WOMEN WHO KNOW THEIR PLACE

Barbara Walters, of 20/20, did a story on gender roles in Kabul ,
Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict.

She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind
their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem happy to maintain the old custom.

Ms Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, 'Why do you now
seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?'

The woman looked Ms Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation
said, 
“Land mines.”


Moral of the story is (no matter what language you speak or where you go):
                          
                   BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE'S A SMART WOMAN   

This is a post made in good fun! Celebrating the intelligence and smartness of our womenfolk, all over the world. 

We can't change the customs and traditions of people who live in countries that are steeped in their old ways. We don't have the rights to do so.

What we can do is to appreciate the little rays of sunshine that comes our way in the form of these snippets of human characteristics that gives us pleasure in knowing that despite the gloom that many folks in other places have to live through daily, there are news and views such as these that at times makes us laugh and smile at the craftiness of some.

They have the gift of making the best out of the worst kind of living. Without some humor, chances are we'd end up with some kind of tumor! :P 


Ease up!
