Islam, Women and Feminism

What is held bad in the Holy Quran cannot be good in Shariat and, in that sense, what is bad in theology is bad in law as well.” Instant triple Talaq is indeed socially, morally and ethically wrong and undesirable. The fact that it was challenged by a few Muslim women and the SC delivered a favourable judgement needed a progressive response from the government to improve the well-being of Muslim women....

The Triple Talaq Bill Is a Textbook Case of Overcriminalisation
Faizan Mustafa

The triple divorce bill is yet another instance of overcriminalisation. Even the Supreme Court had noted that incidence of triple divorce is insignificant. Just like 2G scam, the media has played it out of proportion. The real problem of Muslim women is education and employment....

Triple Talaq and Other Forms of Muslim Divorce Explained
Richa Taneja

"Talaq-e-Ahsan" is the 'most proper' form of Talaq in which the husband expresses divorce in single sentence - "I have divorced thee" - during the period of Tuhr (when the wife is not menstruating) and then has to wait till the Iddat period is over. Iddat period for a woman who has been divorced by her husband is usually three monthly periods and during this time, she cannot marry another man. If before the completion of Iddat, the husband resumes co-habitation with his wife or says that "I have retained thee", the divorce is revoked....

The Trouble with the Triple Talaq Bill
A. Faizur Rahman

However, the most glaring internal contradiction is found in Sections 5 and 6 which discuss post-divorce issues such as a “subsistence allowance” for the woman upon whom instant Talaq “is pronounced” and the “custody of her minor children” as if her marriage is dissolved by the mere pronouncement of Talaq-e-Biddat. How could the authors of this Bill talk of post-divorce matters ignoring the fact that the pronouncement (instant Talaq) has already been voided in Section 3 and cannot result in a divorce?...

As A Muslim, I Strongly Support the Right to Ban the Veil
Qanta Ahmed

Rigid interpretations of the veil are a recent invention. They’re derived not from the Quran or early Islamic tradition but from a misogyny which claims a false basis in the divine. So when the ECJ supports employers who ban the Hijab, it is categorically not impinging on anyone’s religious freedom. The veil has more to do with a set of quite new cultural mores. The Islamists wish to say: we Muslims are different from the West....

How Egyptians Are Fighting Forced Marriage

Understanding Harassment
Rafia Zakaria

In many cases, women will choose to wear the Hijab or Burqa and hand over their entire pay check to their male guardians just to be able to continue to work. The money that they do make and the economic power that they do get by participating in the workforce is hence rendered somewhat superficial because the ‘permission’ to work continues to rest with the men of the household....

In Islamic terminology, this is the state of the soul at peace, Nafs Al Mutma’inah, where our inner conflicts and contradictions are resolved, our hearts are healed and we come to experience our existence as wholesome beings reflecting the Divine Unity. This is the oneness of Tawheed. This concept of Tawheed, which is so central to Islam, does not mean a theological principle that there is one God. It is actually a verb meaning to make one, that is, to integrate, to bring to unity that which is fragmented. On the human plane it is the act of realizing God’s oneness in ourselves....

 

Sexual Violence against Women during Displacement
Zeina Awad

In addition, the actions that refugees resort to in such situations – such as child marriages – risk exacerbating the cycle of inequality and powerlessness that refugee women are caught in. Sexual violence is shaping the refugee experience in the Middle East and Africa in such profound ways that it is imperative for scholars and journalists to place sexual violence at the centre of their work if the work is to be inclusive, accurate, and comprehensive....

When Victims of Wartime Rape Are Scorned

Honouring those who suffered wartime rape requires men to acknowledge that they were powerless to protect their nation, women and territory.

Turkey’s Top Religious Body Okays Divorce via Text Message
Riada Asimovic Akyol

All in all, it seems that the fatwa decreeing that men can divorce their wives with a mere email or text message is not going to affect Turkey’s more modern and egalitarian legal standards. But the controversy has underlined the fact that for Muslim jurists to be relevant and helpful in modern society, they should begin by understanding the gap between this society and the traditional cultures in which Islamic jurisprudence developed....
