And that family environment is exactly what Allah SWT is telling to give in 4:2.
I hope you don’t mean it’s given by marrying them to men only.
Because then I must say I will be a bit disappointed from your reply.
From men’s point of view, attitude of taking all excess women under the subjugation of men and insisting that the only way of survival for a female is to be under men’s sentinel and that too only if she satisfies him sexually, is appalling yet understandable.
Yet from a woman such as you, I was not expecting such defeated attitude.
I can understand men’s (no 2 Islamist thinking mostly) physic of wanting to see women as subjugated beings only, also as a very smart way of MAKING SURE that they don’t take hold or charge of the governance of the system or even take part in any affair of the State, being more in number, and who they think (not what Allah says) are not worth and up to this task.
Just think with so many women and widows under these circumstances who is stopping them to work fo themsleves and help out others and do their part in building the nation from the scratch! Aren't we undermining women's potentials and capabilities regarding anything?
The only risk they run is being exploited by the men for their own gratification(mostly sexual) for which Allah wants people of the society to give them shelters as their own family and marry them off when they can be.
AND that’s exactly what those men have done in the name of religion Islam by changing the translations according to their wishes!!
