Preserving Bangsamoro Women towards peaceful and meaningful society

Women belong to one of the most vulnerable sectors in the society hence this causes them weak in terms of countering different degrees of environmental influences. 

During February, as famously quoted as month of valentine, women become more exposed to being preyed on as subject of doing immoral acts such as rape, fornication, and adultery.

In view of this problem, a creatively organized Islamic symposium entitled “All Rights Reserved 2018” was organized by Union of Muslim Youth Organizations (UMYO) on 11 February 2018 to gather more than 500 Bangsamoro Women at Shariff Kabunsuan Cultural Complex, Cotabato City to be inspired and motivated on becoming tough, and resilient on countering societal problems that dishonor the true value of Bangsamoro Women.

Love in Islam, is not only defined by lust, and physical desires thus, Muslim Women were obliged to cover their bodies because they deserve not only to be loved but to be highly respected and honored too. The whole world is a provision, and the best of the world’s provision is a pious woman, as quoted from the beautiful Hadith (saying) of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

From the very beginning, the Noble Qur’an teaches the believing men and women to lower their gaze and guard their private parts. It is a must to behave modestly at all times. Muslims are highly encouraged to enter into lawful marriage in order to escape from engaging into fornication, adultery, and other forms of immorality.

Spirituality is one of the main ingredients of having a peaceful and meaningful Bangsamoro Society that is most visibly represented by women who wear proper Hijab (Islamic modest dress) and behave modestly. Hence, it is vital for the Bangsamoro Women to behave appropriately in order to become agents of change and transformation, being the bringers of future generations and flag bearers of Islam.

The whole-day program ended successfully through the untiring efforts and full support of UMYO’s Member Organizations and other partners and sponsors. It was also charmed by distinguished Aleema that include Ustadha Anisa Taha, Ustadha Jihan Batiting, and Ustadha Faudzia Ibrahim.
