There were many mothers in Karbala, at least nine who lost sons to the battle, and many of them were not from Bani Hashim, the family of the prophet. It never was about saving the family and the lineage is drawn based on the strength of character and on learning. These are the brave and wise women who not only visited shrines but who are enshrined in their death, have towns and mosques named after them where everyone comes to pray, and are adored as role models to this day....

Penalising Triple Talaq Is a Welcome Move — The Practice Is Against The Moral Fabric
Madhavi Goradia Divan

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.

Criminalising Triple Talaq Will Not Save Muslim Marriage from Arbitrary Divorce
Flavia Agnes

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....

Harassment Is a Forbidden and Deviant Behaviour, As It Encroaches On the Privacy, Freedom and Dignity of Women: Al-Azhar

“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.”...
