Celebrated jurist Blackstone identified crimes as public wrongs, and torts against the individual as private wrongs. While civil wrongs affect the individual alone, public wrongs impact the community. A private wrong has a civil remedy, usually in the form of compensation, while a public wrong or crime invites punishment because even though the act is, ostensibly, directed at an individual, it is perceived as violating the shared values that define a society.....

Ethiopia offers lessons for other African countries. For one thing, it shows that in religious societies you must win over imams and priests. Guday Emirie of Addis Ababa University notes that in one district a local priest, having been publicly shamed for marrying off his own daughter when she was a child, has since been preaching against the practice. It has now been eliminated in his district.....

The people of God are lighthouses in the dark sea. If their light is broken but people continue to come to them, the sea will cease to be a place of exploration and growth, but rather become a graveyard for travelers who once thought the path would lead to the Divine. We all know of the devastation caused by those who don the garbs of religion but whose actions do nothing but to serve their own selfish desires....

If the ultimate goal of women is to save their marriage, even a violent marriage, from the husband’s power of arbitrary divorce, a criminal prosecution against the husband will surely aid in ending the marriage without securing her economic rights, which she is in dire need of. Lakhs of women of faith have come out in large numbers in every city in protest against the government’s proposal to bring in a law to criminalise triple Talaq....

“Al-Azhar says it offers a balanced religious discourse, but I do not see it. Al-Azhar continues to uphold Talaq and to differentiate between men and women in inheritance, which is biased against women, in my opinion,” she said. She added, “Al-Azhar has started to react positively to harassment, which is a very troubling issue to women. I believe the institution should continue to be involved in women’s affairs and open a door for dialogue with more women’s associations and civil society organizations. Al-Azhar ought to also offer a religious discourse that promotes women’s values and does not undermine their dignity.”...

There is also a growing and vibrant creative culture driven by Muslim Women that includes musicians, poets and film-makers expressing themselves through art, and raising political consciousness. Sukina Abdul Noor and Muneera Rashid, dubbed the 'Hip-hop Hijabis' have been at the cutting edge of British Muslim spoken word poetry, and Rabiah and Sakinah, aka the Pearls of Islam, write and perform a range of styles that includes rap, folk, soul and Nasheed songs.....

The rule of hijab in Iran keeps women in a more subordinate position. Every time they leave home they are forced to adjust their taste in clothing according to the criteria set out in the law, otherwise facing the consequences either through the police force or ordinary citizens. The way people choose to cover and dress themselves results from a mixture of factors that involve religion, culture, tradition and the environment but when the state abuses its power to change the natural course of development in society, it is no longer a cultural production, instead entering the ideological and political field....

In recent decades, Torah study by women has grown increasingly acceptable, with many serving as teachers, community leaders and spiritual guides. However, the learned women cannot be officially ordained as rabbis because the Chief Rabbinate has a monopoly on ordaining rabbis in Israel and it refuses to let women take the required exams. Absent the Rabbinate’s approval, many institutions of religious learning and progressive Orthodox rabbis have begun bestowing the title “Rabbanit” — the female form of the Hebrew word for rabbi...

The first category of the Maqasid provides ontological guidance, consisting of respect for religious freedom (Haqq Al Din); for the sacredness of the individual person (Haqq al Nafs), including right to life; for the sacred nature of the derivative communities from family to nation to humankind and beyond (Haqq Al Nasl), including communitarian pluralism; and for our physical environment (Haqq Al Mahid, from Wahda or oneness)....
