Unfortunately, most divorces end on bitter terms. Most men feel insulted when their wives ask for a divorce and tend to make things difficult for the wife as a way to compensate for this insult. Our Islamic teachings urge husband and wife who want to be divorced to separate with kindness. However, some men feel that their pride has been wounded and are determined to do whatever it takes to turn their wives’ lives into hell....

Like Zaynab bint Ali, we must be ready to prove our sincerity of faith by being willing to experience hardship and difficulty for the sake of Allah – seeking His Pleasure alone, finding our honour not in trifling political titbits or the advantages of financial gain, but in living His din and striving to fulfill what it means to be the Khulafâ’ (guardians) of this earth. We are currently the Ibn Ziyad’s of our Ummah, but we can also be its Zaynab’s… if only we have the courage to live like the forgotten heroes and heroines of our past....


Indian Muslim Women – Caught Between Misogynists and Hypocrites
Sanober Umar

However Muslim women should not be deemed as agentless victims in this plot, and many are raising their voice against this practice by asserting their Quranic rights. Nonetheless, it is important to emphasize that while AIMPLB and Hindutva politics may seem to be polar opposites; the two have much more in common when it comes to curbing or denying Muslim women their rights....

Gender Justice: If Hindu Women, Like Muslim Women, Are Given Rights, the Destitution and Humiliation That They Suffer Will Be Greatly Reduced
Flavia Agnes

While the system of dowry has spread its tentacles across castes and communities, its roots in upper-caste Hindu cultural tradition cannot be overlooked. Muslim law started with the notion of Mehr, an amount that must be stipulated in the marriage contract (Nikahnama) as a future security to the bride. Gradually, under the dominant Hindu influence, the community has accepted the anti-women custom of dowry....

Gender Ideologies in Classical Islamic Law and Its Relationship with ‘Honour’ Killings in Some Muslim Majority Cultures
Dr. Adis Duderija, New Age Islam

It is my contention that the above gender based assumptions can have a combined effect that can form a very potent mixture that dictates the life of women in patriarchal societies in its every imaginable segment and over which they have minimal autonomy. Women’s refusal to submit to them could have serious consequences including serious beatings as for example demonstrated by the scholarship on domestic violence and the Islamic tradition. In addition, these assumptions in the least greatly devalue women’s lives....

“If the wife is a habitual drunkard, a confirmed invalid, a cunning, a barren or a spendthrift woman, if she is bitter-tongued, if she has got only daughters and no son, if she hates her husband, (then) the husband can marry a second wife even while the first is living.” Geeta Press’s Kalyan magazine published a number of articles which favoured polygamy, opposed the daughter’s right to inheritance....
