Umm Jamaal ud-Din, a Muslim convert teacher, released a two-hour long YouTube video on Aug. 20, where she talks about the concept of tawheed (oneness of Allah in Islam) and the flawed execution by many Muslims today.
In it, she touches tackles various topics including female grooming practices that are considered 'haram' in Islam, including eyebrow plucking.
It all starts at minute 44 of the two-hour long video ...
"You're still falling into a major sin whatever you like to call it yourself," she says, as she goes over various acts of wrongdoings.
"You can say as many things that Allah makes haram, like plucking the eyebrows," she says, explaining that whether girls call it 'cleaning or plucking' it's still considered a sinful act.
"What do the girls say? 'I'm just cleaning, I'm not plucking ... I'm cleaning.' That sounds great, doesn't it? Clean shaven. Sounds great ... but it's haram," she says.
Who is Umm Jamaal ud-Din?
Umm Jamaal ud-Din is a Saudi-trained teacher at the Islamic College of Australia who converted to Islam 28 years ago, according to The Daily Mail.
Her claim that eyebrow plucking is 'haram' is based on a fundamentalist interpretation of the Hadith, which is prevalent among many schools of thought in the Muslim world.
Following an article that was published in the Daily Mail, an Australian based Muslim women's organization, which provides "emotional and financial support to women from all cultural backgrounds" came to her defense.
Responding to the backlash, 'Sisters United' called the media a 'bunch of clowns' in a Facebook post.
Muslim women have been told this several times before ...
In April, Sheikh Mohamad Doar delivered a speech (more like preached) to a room of teenage girls in Sydney, where he warned of curses that would befall them if they were to pluck their eyebrows or remove body hair.
"You are not allowed the remove the hair of the eyebrow, it's a major sin," the preacher said.
"The lady who plucks her eyebrows and the one who gets them plucked, they’re both cursed by Allah."
Not the first time Muslim women in Australia get hate for their interpretations
In April, the Australian branch of the radical Islamic political organization Hizb ut-Tahrir was put under the spotlight after sharing a video in which two women demonstrate how Muslim men can beat their wives.
The two attempt to interpret a controversial Quranic verse, and explain the "right way" in which men can beat their wives. Soon after the video began making the rounds online, the group was accused of promoting domestic violence and making light of the plight of abuse victims.
After severe backlash, Hizb ut-Tahrir's Facebook page shared a statement acknowledging the negative impact the video has incurred on the image of Islam, especially with the rise of Islamophobia in non-Muslim communities.
