Khadar Bin Muhammad, the imam of Masjid Bilal Ibn Rabah in Syracuse, New York, said in a Friday sermon, delivered at the Syracuse mosque, on October 2, 2020, that the greatest danger to society is the freedoms that daughters are given, and that it is the job of the men to "straighten out" the behavior of the women in their families. He said that according to Islam, it is impermissible for a Muslim woman to live alone, that women should not work, and that fathers should regularly "check in" on their daughters at school to make sure that they are practicing Islam properly. Warning about the dangers of social media and technology, Imam Muhammad further said that fathers should always have control over the affairs of their daughters. He said: "[Women are] never free from the men of [their] family... There's no freedom like that." In addition, Imam Muhammad said that infidel men – whom he compared to predatory wolves – cannot resist an opportunity to "filthy" Muslim women. The sermon was uploaded to The Warrior Scholar Institute YouTube channel. On October 9, 2020, Bin Muhammad announced on his Facebook page that he has relocated to Bursa, Turkey.

Khadar Bin Muhammad: "Islam gives special significance, gives special attention, to how we raise daughters, to how we raise the women of the society.

[...]

"They leave the house due to marriage or death, there is no other way that a daughter or sister leaves the house of the men.

[...]

"There's no such thing as a Muslim girl living alone by herself, there's no such thing as a Muslim girl going to live in the dormitory of the college.

[...]

"Why? Because the weakness that comes at times with women. That at times, they are easily tricked and deceived.

[...]

"The men are given leadership, they're the ones that straighten out the ladies – that's what the men are supposed to do.

[...]

"Among the most dangerous things that we see today in society is the freedom that some of us give our daughters.

[...]

"The Muslim woman is the pride of the ummah. We sell them. We let them go to work.

[...]

"We send our precious sisters to these jobs so the men can touch them, and talk to them, and flirt with them.

[...]

"We think that it's enough just to tell them: 'put on a hijab.' We don't know the difficulty they get into when they go to school. Maybe they change the way their hijab was when they left the house.

[...]

"They need to be accustomed to the fact, to know that 'my father or my brothers may pop up at any time, and check to see what's going on.'

[...]

"They left the house with a big coat on, or whatever. You go to the school, and they have short, tight shirts on.

[...]

"We have to do the extra steps, check in on them.

[...]

"A wolf is going to be a wolf. There is no way you can expect a kaffir [infidel] man to see a precious Muslim woman and not try his best to filthy her.

[...]

"Marry them off if you have the ability to do so to a good, young man.

[...]

"A daughter should not have a private password on her phone where her father can't check it at any moment. No, no reason. What's private about what's going on? The man should be checking this, to see who she is talking to, who she is text messaging.

[...]

"You don't know how easy it is for evil to come to them when they have social media. They have the ability to Snapchat whoever they want. You don't know one, two, three different men they might be talking to. Or more. While you're sleeping, they're chatting.

[...]

"They're sharing pictures. And then this goes [around], with all the boys communicating: 'I have this girl's picture,' 'I have this one's picture.' And everyone's talking bad about your daughter while you're sleeping and you won't even know about it.

[...]

"You have to constantly be advised of her affairs. You have to constantly be over her affairs. She is never free from the men of her family, until she goes to her next man, which is her husband. Or until she meets Allah. There's no freedom like that."
