One of them wrote in an article, “Woman is the best decision that Allaah ever made.” What is the ruling on such a comment?
Praise be to Allaah.
This is disrespectful towards Allaah. Such words, which indicate debauchery and a lack of knowledge of the rights of the Lord, should not be spoken. Allaah has willed and decreed matters which are greater than the creation of woman, such as His Oneness (Tawheed) and His exclusive right to be worshipped.
It is not permissible for a man to look at the beauty of a non-mahram woman, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), …”
A man is permitted to enjoy the beauty of his wife, whom Allaah has blessed him with by causing him to enjoy the pleasure of living with her. There are many other phrases similar to the one mentioned above, written by those who claim to be writing literature but which indicate that they are insolent and that they do not show any respect towards Allaah, that they do not honour the Lord and that they do not know how to speak properly of Him. We must advise these people and fight their falsehood. And Allaah is the Source of strength.
