As we all know the scenario of Arab, before the birth of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). The Arabs environment was so bad and harsh. All the bad deeds were taking place in Arab, as they worship of stones by regarding those stones as their God. There were gamblers, they were taking wine in routine as they became so much addicted to that. It is said that as in other countries, other products were sold out, but according to Islamic literature, it is said that in Arab, the maximum shopkeepers and dealers were dealing with wine. And one of the great problems was there is that if in any one’s home a daughter takes birth, that girl was buried alive.
They haven’t any kind of mercy on their infant. How merciless, heartless and cruel fathers they were at that time. This was a dreadful act. They were doing big sin. What was the reason for doing that kind of sin, i.e. they were fell in sense of discrimination? What was that discrimination? The answer is they were treating boys as superiors and girls as an inferior one of society. With the passage of time when Allah sent his prophet named as Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). The people were motivated by Prophet (SAW), then they acknowledged the importance and role played by a girl in one’s life. Thus girls were also treated with respect.
Alas! I’m sorry to say.
This situation is going on in Kashmir now. People consider boys are the most important than girls, they think that boys will earn for their families and continue their heritage.
They consider boys as heavens and girls as burdens to their families. Even father don’t wish that he should give birth to a baby girl. As the marriage of any men takes place with the charming faces and such glee is found in two families. With the passage of time, there came a special day that’s of giving birth to a baby. Husband is worried, he thinks that if the baby will be a boy his respect will be increased and he will be praised by his family members, society and his friends. And if the baby will be a girl, he will be ashamed at its own, for he has given birth to a baby girl. Finally, when a mother gave birth to a baby girl, how she is responsible for the birth of a baby girl not a baby boy in place of her. And then tortured mother on giving birth to a baby girl.
But as people are illiterate and not ready to understand that it’s not the mother who is responsible for a baby boy or baby girl. It depends on father as he is the one who can contribute the gamete that gives birth to a baby boy. Those who are part of this dreadful act should be ashamed of themselves. Such a shame on them and also on we people who are watching this atrocious act in our environment with a keen and silently way, without uttering a single word. From this, we can know how the birth of a baby girl is considered as an unhappiest and most unfortunate moment of their family and of their life.
People are not aware of the importance of girl. As we can see if a boy and girl is in one’s family, the girl is instructed not to go outside and also is stopped from going to school. Why only girls are stopped? This question bothers me. Our families think that girls are only for the domestic purpose, this is such an absurdity for they think girls are a plodder. We people are forgetting our Islams saying, i.e. about the importance of girl.
First of all, have a glimpse of today’s education sector, girls are the toppers. They excel with colorful grades. Leaving this aside the most important about the girl in our religion is, “If a girl will be born in a family, that girl lead her father or the whole family to the heaven if cared well under Islamic rules. But people are not ready to understand this. As it’s mentioned in hadith, “Anyone who brings up two daughters with love and affection till they grow up, will enter heaven.’’ – [The Prophet, Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal (14247)].
Let’s have a look at how modern technology is used in Kashmir for all this?
The same thing is happening here, the people in Kashmir are fallible. In Arab, if a girl is born they took them and buried them alive. But here is the advancement of that. At least, Arabs let the baby gave birth and then buried them. The people in Kashmir are worse than Arabs.
First, we misuse technology to confirm the sex of the baby. Then what we do when we don’t want a baby girl, we again misuse modern technology (Abortion) and baby girl is killed inside the womb of her mother. The baby girl is not let to come out of the womb of her mother and see the light of the world.
People should go through Islamic rituals to take care of the girl. The girl is the rain who lead to the formation of rivers and oceans (Generations).
May Allah grant us peace, forgive us, so that we can live a life of smile.
