ÈÓã Çááå ÇáÑÃãä ÇáÑÃíã

Bismi-llāhir Raḥmā nir Raḥīm

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

 

ÇÔúåóÃõ Çäú áøÂ Çöáåó ÇöáóøÇ Çááøåõ æó ÇóÔúåóÃõ Çóäóø ãõÃóãóøÃð ÇÚóÈúÃõå æó ÑÓæáå

 

Ašh hadu al-lā ilāha illā-llāhu, wa ašh hadu anna Muḥammadun ʿabduhu wa rasūluhu

I bear witness that none is worthy of worship but Allah, the One alone, without partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger

 

 

As-Salāmu `Alaykum (ÇáÓáÇã Úáíßã):

 

I am outraged that many Muslim woman’s rights have been abridged and restricted by culture and not Islam. Those who make claims regarding Islam establishing

the mistreatment of women should take the time to read the Sira (History) of the life of Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) you will understand that he worked for his

first wife Khadijah (RA) and she rode a camel (drove) to conduct her lucrative trading business.

 

What Quranic ayat (verse) is used incorrectly to justify women not driving?

What Quranic ayat is used to incorrectly to justify refuse women education?

What Quranic ayat is used to incorrectly to justify women being subject to domestic violence?

 

The uneducated should never be allowed to lead. Many don’t understand the difference between Arab, local culture and Islamic culture.

 

If the Quran and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) is followed the following are a few of the rights women enjoy but not limited to:

 

1. The right and duty to obtain education.

 

2. The right to have their own independent property.

 

3. The right to work to earn money if they need it or want it.

 

4. Equality of reward for equal deeds.

 

5. The right to express their opinion and be heard.

 

6. The right to provisions from the husband for all her needs and more.

 

7. The right to negotiate marriage terms of her choice.

8. The right to obtain divorce from her husband, even on the grounds that she simply can't stand him. (pls note that God deeply frowns upon

divorce as a solution unless there is hardly any other alternative but it does not mean that men have more right to divorce their wives than women do.)

 

9. The right to keep all her own money (she is not responsible to maintain any relations).

 

10. The right to get sexual satisfaction from her husband.

 

11. Custody of their children after divorce.

 

12. To refuse any marriage that does not please them

 

Some duties women are temporarily exempt:

- Fasting when they are pregnant or nursing or menstruating,

 

- Praying when menstruating or bleeding after childbirth, and

 

- The obligation to attend congregational prayers in the Masjid on Fridays.

 

- They are not obliged to take part as soldiers in the defense of Islam, although they are not forbidden to do so.

 

But under normal circumstances they are allowed to do all the things that men do.

 

- Even when they are menstruating, on special days, like the two Id festivals, they are still allowed to come to the Id

prayers, and menstruating women can take part in most of the actions of the Hajj (Pilgrimage)

 

The Quran has an entire Surah (Chapter) on Women (Nisaa- 4 Women). Women are discussed throughout the Quran.

 

One of his wives, Umm Salamah, complained to him that the Qur'an was addressed only to men, and then a long passage

was revealed to the Prophet* addressed clearly to men and women in every line, which states clearly the equal responsibilities

and rewards for Muslim men and women.

 

Surah Ahzab 33: 35

 

33:35 (Y. Ali) For Muslim men and women,- for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women,

for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in

Charity, for men and women who fast (and deny themselves), for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and

women who engage much in Allah's praise,- for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward.

 

Surah Nahl 16:97

 

16:97 (Y. Ali) Whoever works righteousness, man or woman, and has Faith, verily, to him will We give a new Life, a life that is

good and pure and We will bestow on such their reward according to the best of their actions.

Bismillā hir Rahmā nir Rahīm

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

As-Salāmu `Alaykum (ÇáÓáÇã Úáíßã):

 

Josh:

 

Alhamdulillah (ÇáÃãà ááå). I really wonder if the Muslimah in the broader Islamic Community even realize what is being imposed to restrict their many choices that Allah has provided are not based on Islam but culture.

 

If a Muslim doesn’t have access to a basic Islamic education they usually rely and trust others to instruct them and interpret observances and obligations.Without receiving a formal Islamic education or educating yourself (usually why we observe the opinions not based on Quran and Sunnah) it is difficult for a person to established if what is being instructed is based on Quran and the Sunna of Nabi Muhammad (Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÓáãý) and not culture.

 

If you read Sahih Bukhari volumes 1-9 and Sahih Muslim volumes 1-4 in its entirety you can actually differentiate someone practicing and implementing the Quran and Sunna and someone who is not. The Sunna (Way,actions,deeds) provides a glimpse of why certain obligations, rites, and prohibitions were established.

 

A qualified Mujtahid (Arabic: ãÌÊåÃý, ) (Person qualified to make a religious decision) is required more than ever in todays challenging world.

When you address topics challenging the popular thought and generational cultures and habits you automatically adopt pre-established biases against you. Be mindful of your audience. An excuse will not be needed to silence that keyboard. Trust me on that.
