This is very saddening because I am also a woman and I am also a proud Muslim woman who is striving to contribute her bit for the development of society! And a Big Big Thank You to few of those who have been supporting such women. Before I die…I wish to see a world with no discrimination because of sex, caste, colour or religion. So many hopes, I know!! Well… We shall overcome someday…..

Obstacles and Women’s Ambitions
Tamadur Alyami

In the Holy Qur’an we read Allah criticizing the Prophet (pbuh), “Wilt thou then compel people until they become believers?” Then, on what basis of the Shariah rule they imprison women who remove their black gown (Abaya), which is just a cover? Is it reasonable to impose guardianship on all Saudi women without exemption, although globally it’s applied on minors?


Stop Calling Feminists ‘Islamophobic’ For Fighting For the Right of Muslim Women Not To Cover Themselves
Lise Ravary

However, many, myself included, opposed the Charter because it took peoples’ freedom to follow their religion and dress as they wish. My feminist Muslim acquaintances and colleagues reminded me that not all choose freely to cover their hair and dress modestly. It is often dictated by tradition and enforced by fathers, husbands, sons or brothers, or even by other women in their social circles. Sometimes subtly, sometimes with incredible violence....


Women and Jihad: The Motivation of Female Suicide Bombers
Greer Fay Cashman

Some of the women were aggressive, saying that Palestine would be part of the large Islamic state. Others expressed admiration for al-Qaida’s Osama bin Laden and Hezbollah’s Hassan Nasrallah and said that they hoped that all Arabs would be like them. One woman said: “The base of the conflict between Jews and Palestinians is a religious struggle.” The faces of all the women, including the most highly educated, shone with a religious radiance that spoke of the depth of their indoctrination....

This sort of behaviour on the part of the Prophet of Islam teaches humanity and mankind to come and to release themselves from the habits and the fantasies of history and traditions. It teaches man to come down from the Pharaoh like throne, to put aside his pride and rough oppression and to bow his head when confronted by a woman. It teaches a woman to reach towards the glory and beauty of humanity and to put aside her old and new feelings of inferiority, humility and baseness....
