If we look at the news over the past 2 months, we find an increase in rape and woman & child abuse. Anene Booysens gruesome incident, the rape of an old lady, the rape of an infant, the rapes by school teachers, the videoing of sex by school kids, the drugging and raping of girl in Durban, the sugar daddy grandpa in Cape Town raping children, the pastor of a church raping women in kzn, the rape and murder of the 14year old in FS, the rape of a woman by police in GP, the father that was raping his daughter in Pmb, the father that was sucking his sons genitals..........and the list goes on.
It is something going out of hand and the question is WHY are men stooping so low and doing things not even animals do.In my humble opinion, which you may agree or disagree, i feel it is a result of the amount of nudity, shameless way of dressing, sex on TV and internet, and the way woman are portrayed that is fueling such lust and passion in men.If we look around, from Tv, internet, magazines, news paper back pagers,bill boards, to walking in the mall, every where, woman are portrayed nude or semi-nude.Woman are used as a marketing tool from marketing a bike to a cheap lotion.
They spread a woman as a cheap commodity of business. This attracts men and arouses the sexual feelings thus making man lustful. This lust and wild desire cannot even be fulfilled by the wife (if man is married) and if a man is not married it leads to masturbation or rape. This is if a man stoops so low as to give in to the filth that the devils feeds him on a daily bases from all sides in the form of woman.As a Muslim, i share with you beautiful teachings of Allah that came via the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). We are told that Shaytaan(devil) uses woman as a net, like how a fisherman uses a net to fish.
He uses woman to lure men into shameless acts. Also we are thought that we should guard our eyesight, as this is the first step towards zina (adultery). The body parts merely conform to the wrong the eyes see. (basically, it all begins with the eyes). Also in the Quraan Allah instructs the believing men to lower their gaze.So, allot of emphasis is made on the fact that men and women alike should beware of the casting of lustful glances.
As this is the weakness of man and leads to many other shamless acts.So in short, men need to be real men and control our eyes and our desires. Men are meant to be the protectors and guardians for women and children.......not the rapists and abusers.We need to be more aware of how our wives and daughters dress in front of all. We are being fed with nudity, filth, sex, and immodesty from all sides, so we need to be more god fearing and aware of these ploys of the devil. In the old days people had respect for all....woman and children, young and old.
But nowadays people got no feelings and care for others. And worst of all, people got no self respect left, that is why they don't care what they do and how it effects or hurts others.
