Islam, Women and Feminism

For Palestine's Sufis in occupied Nablus, every week, women gather around Iman Abu Mariam, a female cleric, referred to as a Sheikha in Jabal Jarzeen in the occupied city. They take part in a session remembering God and the beloved Prophet Muhammad....

It’s because of stuff such as this perhaps that the poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz had said."Sheikh Saheb Se Rasmo Raah Na Ki/ Shukr Hai Zindagi Tabah Na Ki (I did not engage with the religious sheikh/ Thank god I did not destroy my life)". Delhi’s very own Mirza Ghalib has several verses mocking the clerics so irreverence is a finely honed tradition among a section of South Asian Muslims....

So the basic difference between a Hindu Marriage and a Muslim Marriage is that for Hindus, marriage is a divine sacrament whereas for Muslims, it is contract drawn between the husband and the wife....
