Chicago Sermon Calls upon Women Not Be “Led Astray” by Western Colonialist Notions of Equality


In a Friday sermon delivered at the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque, Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Ashraf Nusairat said that the notion that women do not have rights in Islam was introduced into Islamic countries by Western colonialism.

According to Dr. Nusairat, the issue of women’s freedom, equality, and rights is foreign to Islam and was planted by the Western colonialists, who now use it against Islam. “I call upon our Muslim women to return to the religion of Allah, and to understand the Islamic faith correctly. They must not be led astray by the Western notions of equality,” said Dr. Nusairat in his March 16 sermon, which was posted on the Dar Al-Hijrah YouTube channel.
