Today we have Islamophobes slandering our beloved Prophet ﷺ with lies, because they want to attack Islam. They can’t attack our religion because they cannot find any fault, so they attack our Prophet ﷺ with lies and slander. They can’t attack his character because he was noble and honest, so they go for one thing, that they dont even understand, his marriage to A’isha رضي الله عنها
The Prophet ﷺ had many enemies, many of them would go to extreme lengths to defame Islam, to ridicule the religion of Allah, but they never resorted to attacking his character or his marriage to any of His wives… not because it was taboo to do so, because it was not something that could be defamed.
Even His enemies knew that such was His nobility, that slandering Him would not help getting rid of Islam, because the truth of His character was more apparent than the lies.
They make it out as though the Mother of the Beleivers رصي الله عنها was a weak and feeble young woman, when in fact she was a leader. She was the most learned women of Islam during her time, and she was the most reliable source in the teachings of hadith.
She played a key role not only in the emergence of Islam, but its intellectual development after Prophet ﷺ passed away.
She along with the Sahabahs رضي الله عنهم helped contributed to Islam significantly, they paved the way for us and stuck to the haqq, while we have liars and slanderers today, trying to defame their characteristics. But that only leads to more and more people accepting Islam, because indeed Allah is the Best of Planners.
May the Ranks of our beloved Prophet ﷺ and His Companions رضي الله عنهم be raised everytime a hater speaks ill of them. Ameen.
Meet Jedidah Isler
She is the first black woman to earn a PhD in astronomy from Yale University.
As much as she loves astrophysics, Isler is very aware of the barriers that still remain for young women of color going into science. “It’s unfortunately an as-yet-unresolved part of the experience,” she says. She works to lower those barriers, and also to improve the atmosphere for women of color once they become scientists, noting that “they often face unique barriers as a result of their position at the intersection of race and gender, not to mention class, socioeconomic status and potentially a number of other identities.”
While Isler recounts instances of overt racial and gender discrimination that are jaw-dropping, she says more subtle things happen more often. Isler works with the American Astronomical Society’s commission on the status of minorities in astronomy.
She also believes that while things will improve as more women of color enter the sciences, institutions must lead the way toward creating positive environments for diverse student populations. That is why she is active in directly engaging young women of color: for example participating in a career exploration panel on behalf of the Women’s Commission out of the City of Syracuse Mayor’s Office, meeting with high-achieving middle-school girls. She is also on the board of trustees at the Museum of Science and Technology (MOST).
“Whether I like it or not, I’m one of only a few women of color in this position,” she says. “Addressing these larger issues of access to education and career exploration are just as important as the astrophysical work that I do.”
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST YES DAMMIT!
Damn this is amazing!
