HM the King Chairs First Religious Lecture of Ramadan

Rabat - HM King Mohammed VI, Commander of the Faithful, accompanied by HRH Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan, HRH Prince Moulay Rachid and HH Prince Moulay Ismail, chaired Thursday at the Royal Palace in Rabat, the first religious lecture of the holy month of Ramadan.

The lecture was given by Minister of Endowments and Islamic Affairs, Ahmed Toufiq, under the theme "women's contribution in building Islam's spiritual culture," in light of the Quranic verse: "the Muslim men and Muslim women, the believing men and believing women, the obedient men and obedient women, the truthful men and truthful women, the patient men and patient women, the humble men and humble women, the charitable men and charitable women, the fasting men and fasting women, the men who guard their private parts and the women who do so, and the men who remember Allah often and the women who do so - for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward."

Toufiq said that HM the King's constant concern for women by granting them full rights and entrusting them with the mission of supervising the believers is a clear illustration of this spirituality.

Speaking about the status of women in Islam, the lecturer said that God's message is aimed at both men and women, as evidenced by the verse, the subject of this lecture.

The verse, he said, is an evidence of equality established by Islam between men and women in the spirituality and in rewards given by God to this spirituality, emphasizing that any attack on this equality is the result of poor assimilation or misinterpretation of religious teachings.

The lecturer said that the word "spirituality" has several meanings in Islam, including fear, prayer and supplications to God. It concerns man’s spiritual elevation through prayer and strict observance of all the commandments of the religion, he added.

Toufiq also noted that arrogance is a form of selfishness and individuality, which is severely punished by God, and a failing that goes against the virtue of generosity, according to the Quranic verse: "So as for he who transgressed and preferred the life of the world, then indeed, hellfire will be [his] refuge. But as for he who feared the position of his Lord and prevented the soul from [unlawful] inclination, then indeed, Paradise will be [his] refuge." (Surah An-Nazi'at).

He said that if men and women are equal in Islam, the degrading situation of women is the result of the environment on the one hand, and belittling perceptions related to their body, inherited and inspired by ancient civilizations on the other hand.

In Islam, he said, the relationship between men and women is based on equality between the creatures of God in responsibility, performance of duties, salary, and testimony etc, adding that with regard to inheritance, women inherit more or equally to men in many cases.

He also noted that the spirituality of women in modern times is dominated by the attention paid to the everyday concerns to the detriment of the purpose of religion and by the emergence of extremists who have a wrong perception of religion.

Toufiq noted that women's spirituality must be expressed through the promotion of their role as mothers and educators of future generations, noting that spiritual health is the key to happiness for both men and women. This spirituality, he added, can only be reached through the institutional reform and moralization of political life, the strengthening of the role of Ulemas and the reform of religious education.

At the end of this religious lecture, HM the King was greeted by several Muslim figures and scholars from the Islamic world.
