Why is it in Asian culture that women are more likely to be possessed?
Right before anyone reads this, let me make it clear this is not an attack on Asians and I apologise in advance if anyone gets offended but I gotta speak the truth.
Firstly, these practices (black magic) are more common in Asian countries especially India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. A lot of Asians are very ignorant (I’m not generalising or judging I’m Asian myself anyways) they do a lot of bidah and shirk and they think it’s Sunnah but it isn’t. And if you tell them what they are doing is bidah or shirk, then you will be called all sorts of names like wahabi, terrorist, extremist, fanatic etc.
Secondly, our ancestors use to be Hindus and generation after generation we still have some traditions and traits of Hinduism in us. Our parents tell us to do something (that’s not even from Islam) and we do it (assuming it’s Sunnah) we don’t question because they will get angry and say stuff like you don’t love the Prophet ﷺ or your a “wahabi”
I’m going to be honest with you ever since I started practising I started questioning my dad and mum “why do we do this? Were’s the evidence?” A lot of Asians think just because their parents are old, they are right and have studied the religion inside out. No! They are humans and can make mistakes, we shouldn’t blind follow them. And if we do truly love them, then we would tell them when they are going wrong and not just stay silent and accept it because by doing that we are protecting them from the Fire.
A lot of people don’t understand why theres so much deviancy. Let me explain to you basically before the british invaded Hind (modern day indo-pak). Hind was known for its muhadditheen (scholars of hadeeth) and as a whole contained a lot of knowledge but after the brits invaded….. This sad event occurred…. https://m.facebook.com/ahle.deoband.premium/posts/647920668621134
There is a Hadith that states knowledge will decrease from the world when scholars pass away (and no adequate replacement). That authentic knowledge is not maintained. And so the brits put in to place deviant ‘scholars to pollute the practice of the sunnah’ and the rest as they say is history.
Just look at the sub continent today. So much shirk and bidah in practically every 2nd street there is a shrine. And so this shirk has lead to false practices such as black magic, amulets, grave worshipping etc.
So you see most Asians are actually blind followers, they just follow whatever their parents say, keep their mouth shut and block their ears out. I was like that for about 17 years.
Thirdly, as for why it’s mostly women, well it stems from jealousy and envy, let me give you an example;
Theres a girl but there are 2 separate families who want to ask for the girls hand in marriage for their sons.
Family A gets accepted, family B gets rejected. Family B will now go to their ‘moulvi’ to do a taweez or spell to bring problems between the married boy and girl and cause divorce so Family B can then propose.
You know how women also have more issues with appearance envy/jealousy/backbiting.
Another thing is unfortunately a lot of our women who have been brought up in cultural families are not really taught the religion properly. A lot of Asian women are forced to wear hijab by their parents and if you ask them what is hijab they will tell you “the scarf” but hijab is not just that it’s the way you conduct yourself.
Complete ‘hijaab’, besides the six criteria of clothing, also includes the moral conduct, behaviour, attitude and intention of the individual. A person only fulfilling the criteria of ‘hijaab’ of the clothes is observing ‘hijaab’ in a limited sense. ‘Hijaab’ of the clothes should be accompanied by ‘hijaab’ of the eyes, ‘hijaab’ of the heart, ‘hijaab’ of thought and ‘hijaab’ of intention. It also includes the way a person walks, the way a person talks, the way he behaves, etc.
So they cant read daily adkhar, adiyah, etc. Therefore, no protection in Allaah’s kalaam leads to more vulnerability to this fasaad (oppression).
This complied with the lack of authentic knowledge leads the masses into the abyss of misguidance. More abundantly in case of women as their ability and opportunity to learn deen is less in culturally dominated societies
So to sum up about the women:
A couple of reasons; lack of knowledge (not their fault, society’s fault), women innate nature in being envious/jealous leads many to these deviant practices.
