Capitalism's Lack of Value for the Elderly is due to Money being More Important than the Value of a Human


An American elderly woman aged 87 was arrested publicly for not paying a bill for rubbish collection. The $77 dollar fine that was outstanding was considered severe enough for two officers to accost her at her home in the morning, handcuff her in public and take her to the local prison. She was pale in a small cell for most of the day until her release was negotiated. One of the female officers, clearly affected by the gravity of what was happening, was concerned enough to advise her not to cry in front of the neighbours who witnessed the distressing event.

This heinous crime against a vulnerable and weak female was not an administrative mistake. In fact it was clear to all parties that the “law” must be applied at all costs because the real cost of losing money is the “God” that is being served.

The women living in liberal secular culture suffer the fate of being labeled useless and a burden to society as soon as they are not contributing to the economy. Their lives do not have the status of needing guardianship. The idea that chasing a few dollars needs this heavy-handed treatment is a common feature in all sectors of society. Pregnant women suffer the loss of career traction when they want maternity leave. Women often delay their childbearing years in fear of losing out economically. Their role as mothers and caretakers is not rewarded. Indeed, women are humiliated and punished for their feminine traits. The equality narratives actually are its own social prison cell policed by the feminists who betray Muslim women when they exercise the “wrong” freedoms.

We reek these depraved actions and acknowledge that Quran and Sunnah value women as an honour to be treasured. In Islam, the elderly women have the keys to Jannat, and their pleasure must be a high concern. Their wisdom and experience will be a treasure for the next generation, and it is only with the return of the Islamic Sharia that women of every belief will feel the security of the laws of the Creator.

[وَالْوَالِدَاتُ يُرْضِعْنَ أَوْلَادَهُنَّ حَوْلَيْنِ كَامِلَيْنِ لِمَنْ أَرَادَ أَنْ يُتِمَّ الرَّضَاعَةَ وَعَلَى الْمَوْلُودِ لَهُ رِزْقُهُنَّ وَكِسْوَتُهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ]

“The Mothers shall wean their children for two years (that is) for those parents who desire to complete the term of suckling, but the father of the child will bear the cost of the mother’s food and clothing, on a reasonable basis” [Al-Baqarah, 2:233]

[الرِّجَالُ قَوَّامُونَ عَلَى النِّسَاءِ]

“Men are the protectors and maintainers of women” [Al-Nisa, 4:34]
