A Theology of Patriarchy: Patriarchal Structures Are Not The Immutable ‘Will Of God’
Ammar Rashid

Such narratives over the centuries have successfully managed to disguise patriarchal structures as the immutable ‘Will of God’. It is this historical deception — the cynical veiling of patriarchy’s material interests as divine commandments — that needs to be relentlessly exposed for the sham that it is.....

Why I Disagree With the Censorship of Social Media and the Imposition of Hijab
Reem Wasay

For this motley crew of autocrats and aggressors, the culture that is the domain of every free man and woman becomes a primitive penitentiary for the practice of piety used by politicians and the clergy since time immemorial. That culture gave us wars, bombs and destruction....

To Hijab or De-jab?
Shazmeen Khalid

Among the hullabaloo of Muslims being united under an umbrella and coming together to erase misunderstanding, there is also a posse of self-proclaimed, Islam-preserving, quick-to-pull-out-the-Hadith-and-use-it-in-a-nonsensical-way Muslims. Unless you have been living under a rock, you might be staring at that statement wide-eyed and wondering what could possibly stir up such bitter hate in the Muslim community. Successful Hijabi women, that’s what…..

The Hijab Ruling Is a Ban on Muslim Women
Iman Amrani

Identity isn’t something you suppress for public spaces. I don’t stop being a Muslim when I come into work and turn into a journalist. I practise my faith in the canteen by not choosing the pork option, or when I ask for a soft drink instead of wine at the after-work drinks. If my colleagues notice that I’m doing this, and it makes them uncomfortable, should I be forced to behave differently?...

 

Female Kurdish fighters, who represent less than 1% of the roughly 200,000 peshmerga forces, have become “the bankable icon” of the fight against the Islamic State. But beyond the illusions of a land that supports women’s rights, the reality in Iraqi Kurdistan is much less glamorous....

Allowing Child Marriage: Another Regression Therapy For Bangladesh!
Taj Hashmi

To conclude, marriage is a sacred institution, a life-long commitment between two individuals; not an anti-dote to rape and illicit sex, let alone a reward for rapist men. Bangladesh needs the rule of law against rape, abduction, and sexual harassment of women, not child marriage – which is a regression therapy, not an efficacious cure....

Halala and Triple Talaq
Professor Masood Alam Falahi, New Age Islam

Marriage in Islamic Shariat is considered a pure and sustained act. Allah Almighty wants men and women to lead their marital relationship as a prosperous and evergreen life bereft of every sort of disputes. He does not like any pollution of clashes and divisions to touch the refinement and purity of this relationship. For a marriage to be cheerful and cordial, He has given some responsibilities to the husband and the wife. In order to live a good martial life, the spouses always need to create passion of patience, tolerance, self-sacrifice and ignore all the trifles….

“Palestinian women have always stood side by side with their fathers, brothers, husbands, comrades to resist the Zionist occupation, to fight for freedom and legitimate rights. They are the first to go to the streets to protest the brutality of the Israeli military occupation, the first to organize sit-ins and marches demanding the release of their children, brothers and fathers from Israeli prisons. They are the protectors, the supporters, but most of all they are the comrades in the fight for a free Palestine.”....

 
Remembering the First Lady of Islam

Remembering the First Lady of Islam
Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

 The portrayal of Muslim women that we glimpse in the media is grim and sombre. The public perception of them is one of stubborn stereotypes: supposedly powerless and oppressed, behind walls and veils, demure, voiceless and silent figures, discriminated and bereft of even basic rights.  Yet this is far from true. Contrary to general belief, Muslim women have held the flag of enlightenment all through the historical ages. The early Muslim community recognized and honoured a wide spectrum of female roles and responsibilities. A mother was considered the first school for her children. In Islam, a woman is seen as an individual in her own right, an independent entity, and not as a shadow or adjunct to her husband or any other man. Muslim women are fully entitled to education, work, business ownership, and inheritance. ...

Was Nur Jahan A Scheming Temptress Or Just An Independent Woman Who Historians Couldn’t Fathom?
Rana Safvi

She was the 35-year-old widow of a man who had fallen out of favour with the Mughal emperor when she caught the eye of Jahangir. Within years, Mehr-un-Nisa, or Nur Jahan as she is known in history, rose to become the most powerful woman in the Mughal empire – coins were minted in her name, she enacted legislation, issued edicts, interacted with foreign traders and determined the empire’s policy. But that is not the reason why I want to talk about her today, on Women’s Day. ...
