The illiterate women in a society never express a Shariat following but a male dominated society. To build a society without violence, we must give respect to our women and protect their rights. If a society fails to give equal rights to women, it should not do that in the name of Sharia but simply declare it male dominance else it must follow the real laws of Sharia….

In the 1950s and 1960s women began to make slow but steady strides in parts of the Arab world, such as Syria and Egypt. Even parts of the conservative Gulf began more recently to follow suit.

Many of the rights granted to women at the founding of Islam: like right to life, right to private property, right to choose a husband, right to divorce, right to inherit, right to act as a witness in court—along with the most important, ontological right, the right to have an unmediated relationship with the Divine Creator—were revolutionary fourteen centuries ago.  However, women were the beneficiary of these rights with little or no effort on their part…..
