Islam, Women and Feminism

Discussing the different meaning spaces or contexts of term Hijab in the Quran and Sufism, she concludes: “So it is strange indeed to observe the modern course of this concept, which from the beginning had such a strongly negative connotations in the Koran. The very sign of the person who is damned, excluded from the privileges and spiritual grace, to which the Muslim has access, is claimed in our day as a symbol of Muslim identity, manna for the Muslim women....

Teaching Of Gender Equality Sparks Infighting In Iran

Just 12 days before the polls, on May 7, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei criticized Rouhani’s Cabinet for quietly adopting the measure and said, “It is the Islamic Republic here! Here Islam is the benchmark! The Quran is the benchmark! It is not a place where the deficient, destructive and corrupt Western lifestyle can infiltrate! ... The UNESCO 2030 education agenda and the like are not agendas that the Islamic Republic of Iran should have to surrender and submit to.”....

Triple Talaq: Whose Fight Is It Anyway?
Flavia Agnes

This brought me back to the recently concluded triple Talaq hearing and the agency given to Muslim women to include conditions in the Nikahnama (marriage contract) to protect themselves in their marital home — a Quranic right given in the seventh century. And here we were, in the 21st century, still holding on to the notion of a sacramental Hindu marriage solemnised through rituals such as Saptapadi and Kanyadaan....

 

In our work with women in abusive marriages, never have we come across pro-women judgments by Islamic courts. Only if there was a more comprehensive survey that was less selective. For example, if the NALSAR surveyors spoke to Shaheen, the women’s organisation in Hyderabad, they would have learnt that there has only been one Qazi in the city who took a pro-woman position while absolving a marriage last year. Yet, exceptions cannot claim to be the norm....

FGM vs Political Correctness — Which Will Prevail?

At that moment, will women’s rights be asserted or will they be diluted in favour of political correctness?

Besides the main Shia and Sunni sects, they are also divided along many cross-cutting lines of identities, which prevents the community from having a uniform view on "triple Talaq". There are also nuanced differences in the principle and practices of Shia and the four schools of Sunni jurisprudence, which include Hanafi, Maliki and Hanbali and their sub-sects such as Wahhabi, Ahl-e-Hadith, Deoband, and Barelvi. Then there's the minuscule presence of Ahmadiyas and Sufi sects....

Declare Instant Triple Talaq Invalid
A. Faizur Rahman

Therefore, the only way to restore the legal equality of Muslim women and pre-empt the state’s legislative interference in the Muslim Personal Law is for the AIMPLB to declare instant triple Talaq invalid with immediate effect, and make the Quranic procedure of Talaq gender-neutral. Social boycotts and no-triple-Talaq conditions in Nikahnamas (prenuptial contracts) will not remedy the legal inferiority of women under the prevailing Muslim law....
