Its almost the end of Ramadan

Its almost the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan and Muslim organisations are already planning out what to do for the Eid-ul-Fitr prayer.

I was just doing some grocery shopping with my mum and saw a flier in one of these “gatherings” for Eid prayers. What irked the hell out of me is that out of the two Eid – ul – Fitr prayer conventions, one had “special congregation for women!” in a form of white text on top of a red star.

I don’t know how I can say it nicely.

On a time of happiness and unity that Allah called everyone to do, but there should be a “special congregation” for women, half of your Ummah.

For a community that claims Islam is about unity and treating everyone with respect, you sure love disconnecting more than half of your Ummah and can only grant theirs for “special” times well because Muslim men are obviously more important than any other groups.
