Texas Imam Hasan Khalil: The Woman’s Husband Is Her Path to Heaven; She Should Submit to His Command


In a Friday sermon at the East Plano Islamic Center (EPIC) in Plano, TX, Imam Hasan Khalil said that the best woman is “the one who submits to the command of her husband,” because the husband is the woman’s path to heaven.

He advised women to fix their schedule according to their husband’s, saying that a woman who goes to lectures while her husband has to serve himself and eat alone has “no idea what religion is.” Citing the Prophet Muhammad that “a woman who understands the rights of her husband would not sit until her husband finishes his [meal],” Imam Khalil lamented that women are willing to work as waitresses, serving other people for a small hourly wage, while their husbands support them. He also said that men who do not give their wives money to spend “do not understand [their] religion.” The August 17 sermon was live streamed on EPIC’s YouTube channel.
