I'm British Muslim, and I like Wearing the Hijab
Shaista Aziz

If there is one positive outcome of Brexit - and there are not many given the rise in bigotry I've seen and the increase in reported hate crimes - it's that we don't have to follow the ban. When questioned about whether Britain will adopt a similar rule, Prime Minister Theresa May reiterated her support for the right of women to dress how they chose. In trying to figure out how Britain is different from Europe, I concede that Europe has gone down the rabbit hole, pushing identity politics onto Muslim women by obsessing over our wardrobes.....

 

It is unfortunate that in modern India, triple Talaq continues. Here, it is permitted under the Muslim Personal Law (Sharia) Application Act, 1937, wherein, in matters of personal disputes, the state cannot intervene and a religious authority will instead pass judgements. But, is this practice part of the basic tenets of Islam? Many Muslim-majority countries including neighbouring Pakistan and Bangladesh, have outlawed the system. Turkey and Cyprus have adopted secular family laws; Tunisia, Algeria and the Malaysian State of Sarawak do not recognise a divorce pronounced outside a court of law. And in Iran, triple Talaq doesn’t have validity under the Shia law....

Why Assertive Women Rankle
Salil Tripathi

Women know that real life is not a fairy tale. Lipstick under My Burkha shows how a patriarchal society denies women agency, how control is taken away from them, how decisions are made on their behalf, against their interest, and without their consent, countless times, all the time....

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

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.....

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….
