Sheik Al-Munajid on Equality Between Men and Women

The following are excerpts from Sheik Salah Al-Munajid's religious program on Saudi Iqra TV:

Sheik Muhammad Al-Munajid: There is a difference between men and women in Islamic Law. Those who want total equality between the sexes are criminals, betrayers and violators of the Koran and the Sunna. They are apostates and enemies of this religion. At best, they are ignorants, who do not know what of Allah brought down upon His Prophet [the Koran].

The West or Western researchers have proven these differences, even though some of their results were quite late in comparison with what is known to us Muslims. But those of them with brains have scientifically proven what is written in the Koran and the Sunna. They have shown that the difference between men and women exists in the cell itself. The woman's body cell differs from the man's. They are distinctive to that degree. It isn't only a cosmetic difference such as her having breasts and him not having any. No, the issue is much deeper and there are differences even at the level of the cells.

Some of the Westerners have the audacity to claim that, sexwise, women are superior to men. Perhaps they based this conclusion on the female elephant, for instance, because the female is the elephant herd leader. Perhaps they noticed that the female crocodile, for instance, is as strong as the male crocodile. They made observations on animals and implemented [the conclusions] on humans.
