Men and Women

“The Believers, men and women, are protectors one of another: they enjoin what is just, and forbid what is evil: they observe regular prayers, practise regular charity, and obey Allah and His Messenger. On them will Allah pour His mercy: for Allah is Exalted in power, Wise.”….(Surah At-Tawbah/The Repentance, 71)
“And do not covet that by which Allah has made some of you excel others; men shall have the benefit of what they earn and women shall have the benefit of what they earn; and ask Allah of His grace; surely Allah knows all things.”….. (Surah An-Nisa/The Women, 32)
“Surely the men who submit and the women who submit, and the believing men and the believing women, and the obeying men and the obeying women, and the truthful men and the truthful women, and the patient men and the patient women and the humble men and the humble women, and the alms-giving men and the alms-giving women, and the fasting men and the fasting women, and the men who guard their private parts and the women who guard, and the men who remember Allah much and the women who remember– Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a mighty reward.”…. (Surah Al-Ahzaab/The Clans, 35)
“Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has Faith, verily, to him/her will We give a new Life, a life that is good and pure and We will bestow on such their reward according to the best of their actions.”… (Surah An-Nahl/The Bee, 97)
I wondered why the profiles of Pakistani men mostly say interested in “women”, almost the same case with women, they are interested in “men, chatting, dating”. Why it can’t be something else or may be other choices are not given there. Why do we like chatting for fun, why not for a mission? Why do Pakistani men and women, boys and girls, like to use each other, like to play with each others’ dignity and honour? Why can’t we become the support for each other, in a respective and dignified manner? Why not behave and become a model for the world?
Well, wasting life with these priorities, even a fool can easily predict our more miserable and disastrous future. We, both men and women, are responsible for our own destruction.
