Canadian female convert to Islam: Wife should know her place; husband is the only leader

Jonathan D. HaleviRebel Blogger

Lu’lu ‘Mariam’ Habibi, a former Catholic, is an Edmonton resident of Trinidad descent who converted to Islam few years ago following the befriending of local Canadian Moroccans who left an enormous positive impression on her. She launched a YouTube channel and a personal website both dedicated to propagate Islam and dismiss misconceptions about her new faith.

In one of her videos (uploaded to YouTube on August 11, 2014) Lu’lu ‘Mariam’ Habibi explains the meaning of feminism in Islam and thus opening a window to understand what messages converts to Islam are being taught by their mentors. The following are excerpts of the video:

(07:05-09:48) “Feminism in Islam [slide]. When a man gets married his responsibility is so huge, like, when a man gets married, nikah (marriage نكاح), when a man takes a wife, ok, she becomes his responsibility, ok. He is taking on the role of parents, that’s now like her brother, her father, everything. Anything she needs, anything she wants, anything you can imagine, he supports her in every single way.

“We are not talking like, you know, in this day and age [we] got Western society telling you the woman wears the pants now, the women are completely equal and they can do if not more than the men, just as much as the men if not more. This is what they are teaching us these days. And I mean, the feminism and women’s [pause] women have taken women’s rights and just skewed everything and turned it into some kind of like, showboating, “women are boss”, I don’t know what it’s all about.

“But, all I know is, in Islam you, a woman has her role and a man has his role. The same way a woman can bear children, a man can’t. Do you know what I mean? Like, women are, women have their rights and men have their rights. And when you are married, same thing. Husbands have rights over the wife, and the wife has rights over the husband. And, one thing for sure is the man is supposed to lead, the man is the head of the household. In every way, he’s a man. Do you know what I mean? Like, he supports the family. It’s what it’s supposed to be.

“I’m not saying the women can’t work and bring home bread or she can’t be the breadwinner, because as we know, the Prophet’s first wife Khadijah (خديجة), he worked for her, she was the breadwinner in that relationship, he worked for her, let’s remember, she was a business woman. So nobody says you can’t, but in this day and age right now, you have women just taking it too far. Women should know their place.

Women need to know their place, cause that’s when a lot of fitnah (disharmony, conflict فتنة) gets involved, you know. And we have to remember that men have pride, and we should never try to hurt that pride.”

In another video (uploaded to YouTube on June 4, 2014) Lu’lu ‘Mariam’ Habibi justifies the Islamic Law (Shariah) legalizing polygamy.

On her website, Lu’lu ‘Mariam’ Habibi expresses extreme anti-Israeli positions, deep mistrust of the media and harsh criticism of the ‘misuse’ of freedom of speech in the West to bash Islam. The following are some of her postings:

“Listening to the rift between Netanyahoodie [Netanyahu + yahoodi which means a Jew] and Obomba is like watching a bad movie. It’s all show business and they aren’t fooling me.”

“Benjamonkey [Benjamin + monkey] Netanyahoodi [Netanyahu + yahoodi which means a Jew] is a crackhead. I hope he overdoses on his crack pipe.”

Caption on a Picture of Netanyahu: “Asks for peace, killed more children than Hitler”

“I don’t know who’s committed more war crimes, Obama or Netanyahu, but if I was in charge of the ICC I’d see to it that they both be put in front of a firing squad. Now how’s that for freedom of expression?”

“Call it what it was: A Hate Crime! The facts: An atheist murdered 3 Muslims because of their faith. What they want us to believe: That it was over a parking dispute. My response: F*CK the MEDIA and f*ck you for trying to insult my intelligence..assholes.”

“I’m disgusted by the double standards of the media when it comes to Muslim victims of hate. If it’s one thing I do in this lifetime it will be to spread dawah and expose the media and bigots for the disgusting assholes that they are.”

“What Charlie Hebdo did was a hate crime. Don’t give me that bullsh*t about freedom of expression and they were “just publishing cartoons” crap. What they did was strike believers at the root of their faith by mocking and ridiculing them and just for the record, when any celebrity or publication speak out in any form against gays it’s usually a career ending move-that is unless they publicly offer up profuse apologizes. I’m sick of the double standard bullsh*t. Why is ok as long as it’s bashing or making fun of Muslims? And why are people so damn comfortable with that?”

Well, it’s her right to play a submissive role if she wants to. It’s also her right to change her mind later. I don’t see how it’s anyone else’s business really.

I was also thinking that she had better remove that nail polish too, before she gets beaten for it.

Notice how this lovely lady paints Western Society with a very Broad Brush. I wonder—- Lady—— about this honourable hubby man that has 4 wives ,each with 4 kids and each with their own house—- this hard working Gent must be making a good $200,000 / year salary—— OR He is just another Muslim welfare pimp screwing the taxpayer as he raises his progeny in the Ghetto.

How unfortunate and I’m not referring to her English (as it may not be her first language .) I don’t have a problem with the legimate non-militant Muslims and know there are progressives ones, but I’m dismayed by this women’s fuctionlist views and bias towards men and women.(her more archaic views are not that much different from certain fundie Christians.)

Glen Craig are you kidding me? That is assinine!

Ya know, like, its kinda wierd that a Catholic would, ya know, like, regress 500 years, unless, ya know, like, she was a, ya know, idiot?

I listened to what she had to say…then I read the comments….I see some knee jerk reactions here that I don’t agree with … I don’t completely agree with some of what she said either…but I don’t think you gave her a fair hearing.

Much better this dialogue than resorting to a suicide bomb belt…..dialogue and discourse has to begin somewhere.

What a bunch of clap trap.!

There is no redder flag than a westerner converting to Islam. I hope CSIS is keeping tabs on this loon.
commented 2016-02-04 16:30:25 -0500
On a more serious note than my last comment. She does have a point, even though she does not put it in perspective. We “Westerners” do have a very similar understanding of man re woman, home and family. But we can thank our genius social engineering elite for trying to undermine it to the point that no one knows what to do anymore. I do feel bad for the kids being fed this crap in school, to the point where they are so confused they think they are what their not. Thanks to the Muslims for standing by the Christian’s against the western social engineering against family! Cheers.

Good thing people don’t make fun of Christian’s. Muslims are fair game, but definitely not the Christian’s. Oh wait a sec… =p

Glad to see there are some moderate Muslims among the converted

Its a good thing we have gullible women for those guys. Shame she needs to broadcast it. I wonder how those little girls that left last year are doing as ISIL wives? Don’t hear much from them lately. Another shame, for the families.

This child should perhaps read up on the ‘Hadith’ which describes the intent behind the hijab, who’s intent is to comport oneself in a humble manner. The lipstick, plucked eyebrows and the ring of jewels around her head, which this misguided child finds so fashionable, would be rather frowned upon in the culture she so admires, not to mention how the gaudy rings she wears in the second video lends her appearance the aspect of a Jezebel !
I would also recommend she get her hands on a dictionary, open up to the H-words and study the term hypocrite.

THIS is why youtube needs a no-retard policy.

Does she know that her husband can divorce her anytime he wants or get others wives besides her. Is she going to get her clitoris amputated too? No wonder mid-east men are all muslim.

what did PT barnam say A SUCKER BORN EVERY MIN, enjoy your death cult dear wont be long till you figure out what a mistake it was.

What in the world?! Uh, sweetie, I did educate myself on your special ‘religion’ and if you want to call yourself a real Muslim, half the garbage that came out of your mouth does not fit the rules you are required to follow of that religion. Because if you don’t follow all the rules, you’re put to death. I haven’t seen someone contradict themselves so much since I watched a video on our wonderful PM the other day. And no one gave Islam a bad name except for followers of Islam itself. Sounds like you want the best of both worlds…are these the ‘moderate Muslims’ everyone is talking about? Ha! My advice: Go over to the middle east, and keep doing the things you’re doing here in our free country where men and women share equal rights. I bet you wouldn’t last a week, especially if you want to drive a car by yourself, or refuse your loving husband another wife, that he probably helped kidnap and traded a gun for. Before you go, don’t forget to get your Muslim sisters to mutilate your vagina first with unclean knives and nothing to numb the pain. Muslim men don’t like their wives to enjoy sex. Happy trails!

Good intentions mixed with a whole lot of ignorance.

This is just a stupid, sick, screwed up female that wants into the limelight, what better way to get noticed than to make a video praising Muslim pigs and evil Islam in the face of whats happening around the world.
This POS should get slapped hard enough to burst those ugly thick lips.
Go enjoy your trash Muslim husband and STFU.

Sick lying Muslim troll!

She is simply “Stupid”, random babbling, probably neglected as a child and trying to draw attention with social media. Is it working?
commented 2016-02-04 13:06:56 -0500
I think she should be banished from Canada and sent to Saudi Arabia where she’d be more at peace with herself in that widely tolerant society. Stupid Bitch. Playing the victim card in every video, I couldn’t watch them through. Just skipped through them and found her telling us the lie that islam is not the racists or bigots that we are. Fuck Her.

This woman must have been a liberal first. That is the path to Islamic conversion.

She might not be so cocky after living under Sharia Law for a few years.
