This week on the Raw Islam Podcast with Imam Azhar– a 2017 Podcast Award nominated podcast, our question of the question of the week do you allow your teen to attend religious events that are gender mixed?
Imam Azhar recaps last week’s episode where he asked if it was worth turning the Earth inside out and upside down in order to fulfil a prophecy that is believed by Jews, Christians, and Muslims worldwide – spoiler alert… it’s not!
Then Imam Azhar asks an Earth shattering question to B.C. Dodge, and all the listeners – Did you know that Muslims believe in Jesus (pbuh)? It is true! Jesus is in the Quran and Muslims do follow his teachings.
The Imam then talks about the elections that were taking place in Florida (which is the reason he was calling into this episode), while talking about these elections he reminds us that The Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) stated that whoever introduces a good path, will get the reward of it and everyone that follows it.
We then get into the meat of the show, and we talk about sexual harassment, not just in the world around us, but in Islam too. B.C. talks about how sexual harassment is violation of trust and power. The Imam reminds us that it is better to walk away from something then to put yourself in a situation where our actions can be questioned, or our motives are not pure.
Which leads to the question… would you allow your teen to go on an overnight trip, with little supervision, where you knew that gender mixing was taking place?
We have all heard the saying “the devil made me do it,” and as this podcast opens Imam Azhar takes a deeper look at that; and he reminds us that it is hard work that delivers what we want. If every time we asked God for something he just handed it to us, we would turn into ungrateful little children.
