In a [September 14, 2018] sermon at the East Plano Islamic Center (EPIC) in Plano, Texas, Imam Hasan Khalil said that the best woman is "the one who submits to the command of her husband," because the husband is the woman's path to heaven. He advised women to fix their schedule according to their husband's, saying that a woman who goes to lectures while her husband has to serve himself and eat alone has "no idea what religion is." Citing the Prophet Muhammad that "a woman who understands the rights of her husband would not sit until her husband finishes his [meal]," Imam Khalil lamented that women are willing to work as waitresses, serving other people for a small hourly wage, while their husbands support them. He also said that men who do not give their wives money to spend "do not understand [their] religion." The August 17 sermon was live streamed on EPIC's YouTube channel.
Hasan Khalil: "[The Prophet Muhammad] said that if the woman understands the rights of her husband, she will not sit until he finishes his food and his drink. Yet, she is willing to go for ten dollars an hour and sit as a waitress and serve the entire universe for ten dollars. And her husband gives her thousands, and spends on her thousands, and [he is] the way to heaven.
[TBC: As Dave Hunt noted in the December 2002 issue of the newsletter, “Women are said to have rights to Paradise that are equal to men’s. However, while the jihad martyr is promised many virgins and a special position in Paradise, no such promise is made to women.
Liwa al-Islami magazine (August 13, 1987, p. 21) reports that Muhammad said, “Oh assembly of women...you [comprise] the majority of the inhabitants of hell in the day of resurrection.” The authoritative hadith (Sahih al-Bukhari, vol. 7, p. 96), quotes Muhammad: “I saw hell...the majority of its dwellers were women.”]
