Miami imam Dr. Fadi Yousef Kablawi said that the West is concerned with Afghan women, and asked whether what they want for them are popular competitions like Afghanistan's Got Talent, Miss Afghanistan, or something like Hollywood. He spoke at a Friday sermon that was delivered at Masjid As Sunnah An Nabawiyya North Miami, and was posted on its Facebook page on September 17, 2021. Dr. Kablawi said that the Afghan women are "fine" and asked whether it is right for a woman to be "exposed to everybody and anybody has access to her" and whether this is considered women's rights. He further said that shari'a is the solution for all the suffering of mankind. Dr. Kablawi added that the law of Allah is the only law that is not changed "under the domes of parliaments, Congress, or all that nonsense." Dr. Kablawi, who is a dentist, immigrated to the United States from Jordan. For more information about him, see MEMRI TV clips Nos. 8810, 8063, 8136, 8389, and 8404.

Dr. Fadi Yousef Kablawi: "The world is upside down, all they care about and all they are worried about is Afghan women. Suddenly you woke up and Afghan women are all you care about?  The women of Afghanistan are fine. Worry about your own women. What do you want for the women of Afghanistan?  What do you want for them?  Afghanistan's Got Talent – is that what you want?  Miss Afghanistan – is that what you want?  What is it that you want? Hollywood of Afghanistan... Is this what, in your mind, is right for a woman, that she is exposed to everybody, and anybody has access to her, is that... When the West says 'women's rights,' 'women's rights' – what is it? Tell us, what are you talking about?


"The only solution for Man's suffering today, is divine law – a law that does not get changed under the domes of parliaments, Congress, or all that nonsense. The only divine law that is preserved until today, is the law of Allah. That is your position as a Muslim. [People say] 'Oh, you want us to rule by shari'a?' I wish. I wish, then a lot of suffering will be eliminated.


"You would wish that mankind would come to be ruled by shari'a. In other words, forget about it [being] shari'a, forget about the name – it is Allah. A new rule – give it a try. If you are objective, give it a try. Look at it. But they don't want... They don't want... I don't care about them, but you as a Muslim, should believe that. You should believe that the only success and the only way you can establish peace, mercy, and justice in this world is by ruling according to Allah. That's it."
