The erosion of the family, masculinity and femininity and the promotion of confusion about biological sex as well as the promotion of homosexuality and transgenderism is not an end in itself, but pursued for economic and social goals, the ultimate of which is the abolition of private property. It is integral to the Collectivist, Communist agenda known today as “Globalism.”

Allāh (سبحانه وتعالى) said:

وَمَا خَلَقَ ٱلذَّكَرَ وَٱلْأُنثَىٰٓ

And (by) Him Who created the male (Ādam) and the female (Eve).[1]

Imām al-Saʿdī (رحمه الله) commented:

Allāh created every type of animal whose existence He wanted to continue as male and female so that the category [of that animal] would remain, and not expire. He drove one of them to the other through the route of [sexual] desire and made each of them suited to the other, so blessed be Allāh, the best of creators.

Allāh (عز وجل) said:

وَمِنْ ءَايَٰتِهِۦٓ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَٰجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوٓا إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ

And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought..[2]

Imām al-Saʿdī (رحمه الله) commented:

{And of His signs} indicating His mercy, concern with His servants, mighty wisdom and all-encompassing knowledge {is that He created for you from yourselves mates} that are suited to you and you are suited to them, you resemble them [in form, appearance], and they resemble you {that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy} due to what He has made to result from marriage of the causes of love and mercy. Thus, through the spouse, enjoyment, pleasure and benefit is attained through the presence of offspring and raising them, and of finding solace in her. You will not find with anyone, overwhelmingly, the likes of what is to be found between two spouses of love and mercy.

This is what has been known by mankind for thousands of years, in all their variant creeds and civilisations, that men and women have differences—based on biological realities—which give them qualities and traits that compliment each other and draw them to each other, forming a pair, like a lock and key. The more pronounced the masculine and feminine qualities in each, the tighter the bonding. Through this relationship offspring are conceived, born, raised, matured and stabilised within a family setting. From here arises the notion of blood ties, relations, and also various rights, including those which relate to inheritance and property.

This is detested by the Collectivists, Marxists, Communists, since men, women, marriage and blood ties give rise to property and inheritance rights, allowing inter-generational wealth to be preserved which in turn prevents usurpation, subjugation and enslavement. To this end, there is a war on biological sex, masculinity and femininity and this war has taken on various forms and shapes during the 20th century, continuing apace in the 21st.[3]

Refer to the blueprint outlined in the 1970s Gay Liberation Manifesto for example.

Coming to “gender identity” (and “gender politics”), it is an invention of the mid-20th century, from, though not exclusively, the ideas and writings of a man called Dr. John Money (described as a 'sexual pervert', 'child-abuser', 'pedophile' and 'pedophile apologist') who separated biological properties from behaviours that distinguish males from females. He referred to the latter as gender identity, claiming it to be fluid and malleable. He is said to have popularised the notions of “gender identity”, “sexual orientation” and “gender role”.

See: Gender Etymology on the origin and meaning of "gender".

He tried to prove his ideas by experimenting on David Reimer, one of two twins. Though born a healthy baby boy, through an operation gone wrong to treat phimosis (via botched circumcision), his sexual organ was damaged. Seeking remedy for their son over the years, Reimer’s parents eventually came across Dr. Money who in turn, found his opportunity to put his own ideas to the test.

Watch a 4 minute video on Dr. Money:

Using surgery, chemicals, counselling sessions and forced sexual activity (between the twins and with other boys at the age of six onwards) which he would oversee and observe, Money tried to transition Reimer to a female identity. However, this led to a life of suffering, depression and trauma and Reimer eventually committed suicide later in his life, having already made past attempts on his life. His twin brother, Brian had committed suicide two years earlier, and later, their father committed suicide being unable to overcome feelings of guilt.


Money’s ideas were proven wrong by his own cruel, perverse experiments. This is why trans-activists always keep quiet about the intellectual origins of their movement, of "gender science" and the personality behind them.

It should be pointed out that there are “intersex” people, those born without fully formed male or female organs, and their behavioural characteristics are rooted in their incompletely distinguished biology. There are Islamic rulings pertaining to such people and harming and oppressing them or making fun of them is not permissible.

However, this should not be confused with “gender ideology” in the West, which is an ideological weapon for indoctrination, sexual perversion, destruction of family, reshaping of society and confiscation of private property which is the goal behind many of these ideologies masqueraded as science, progress, “inclusion” and “equality”.

What these people are doing has a share in the saying of Iblīs:

وَلَأُضِلَّنَّهُمْ وَلَأُمَنِّيَنَّهُمْ وَلَأَمُرَنَّهُمۡ فَلَيُبَتِّكُنَّ ءَاذَانَ ٱلْأَنْعَٰمِ وَلَأَمُرَنَّهُمۡ فَلَيُغَيِّرُنَّ خَلْقَ ٱللَّهِ وَمَن يَتَّخِذِ ٱلشَّيْطَٰنَ وَلِيًّا مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ فَقَدْ خَسِرَ خُسْرَانًا مُّبِينًا

“And I will mislead them, and I will arouse in them [sinful] desires, and I will command them so they will slit the ears of cattle, and I will command them so they will change the creation of Allāh.” And whoever takes Satan as an ally instead of Allāh has certainly sustained a clear loss.[4]

Imām al-Saʿdī (رحمه الله) said:

وهذا يتناول تغيير الخلقة الظاهرة بالوشم، والوشر والنمص والتفلج للحسن، ونحو ذلك مما أغواهم به الشيطان فغيروا خلقة الرحمن. وذلك يتضمن التسخط من خلقته والقدح في حكمته، واعتقاد أن ما يصنعون بأيديهم أحسن من خلقة الرحمن، وعدم الرضا بتقديره وتدبيره

This includes changing the outward appearance through tattooing, plucking hair (from eyebrows), making gaps (in teeth) for beauty and what is like them of [affairs] in which Satan has beguiled them. So they altered the creation of al-Raḥmān. This comprises anger towards his own appearance, reviling [Allāh’s] wisdom, believing that what they do with their hands is better than Allāh’s creation and not being pleased with His decree and arrangement [of affairs].

This refers to changing outward appearance whereas the gender revolutionaries wish to change the very foundation of what a man or woman is, or in fact, abolish it altogether.

It is important for Muslim parents highlight the differences, virtues and unique qualities of the male and female, in terms of their creation, while at the same time, clarifying their equality as servants of Allāh, that they are equal in worship, dealings, justice and the likes, with the few exceptions being only in relation to those rulings in specific areas which are tied to their differences in physical and biological constitution such as menstruation for example.

Whereas the differences between men and women comprise wisdoms and allow family, society and nations to thrive and prosper, and these differences (in all of history) having been observed and maintained when dealing with ground realities (war for example), this has been turned on its head by ideological terrorists and gender revolutionaries whose only interest is sexual liberation and perversion in the name of "human rights", "equality" which are age old deceptive slogans used by every seeker of corruption.

When these ideas appears in a society and the society accommodates it or remains indifferent at its own peril, it is on the verge of ruin and destruction. This is because this type of outwardly observed moral decay is the final manifestation of a slow inner rot that has been ongoing for decades.

2. Sūrah al-Rūm (30:21)
3. To this end they actively promote sexual deviance and gender confusion as a means of destroying family, inheritance and property rights. These (sexual deviance and gender confusion) are not ends in themselves but simply means towards the attainment of economic goals.
4. Sūrah al-Nisā (4:119)
