Islam, Women and Feminism


  • Dear Professor Musthafa,

     I must thank you to post a comment on this website. Only if people like your good self and others from the higher echelon of academy and masterly in juristic sciences join the group on this forum, the discussions will be more enriched. I am reassured to read your remark: “Stern action should be taken against violators including imprisonment and heavy fine. Naturally the question of triple talaq will end.”

    This echoes my following statement in my article referenced below:

    “In other words, instant triple divorce must be declared constitutionally invalid and culpable in the eye of Law, and not included in Nikahanama as a condition of prenuptial contract.”


    Re: Triple Talaq must be invalidated constitutionally and criminalized – inclusion of prohibitive clause in Nikahnama could allow its perpetuation by defaulters.

  • It is wonderful and disastrous to see the discussion by the self-styled intellectuals. I dont understand why they want to skip the real issues of safety and security of man and women in shariat. There is systematic and scientific procedure of diverse (from man's and woman's side) in shariat. If it is node inculded in Indian shariat code it should be included what safe guard the interest of man and woman equally. Thos einvolved in the discussion, including AIMPLB is skipping away. Stern action should be taken against violators including imprisonment and heavy fine. Naturally the question of triple talaq will end. no body should be allowed to take religion or anything as a vurtain or protection for their violation.  presently triple talaq is not the issue. Addressing the exploitation in the name of religion is the issue

  • Mohammed is an Arabian.Islam is a Arabian cultural movements which has its roots in ancient Arabia and its head is not yet found out.As every culture is subject to innocation towards perfection.Stagnation would prove disastrous.Pre Mohammdaan culture celebrated IDOLs,But Mohammed banished them. Similarly Talaq wich is an ancient Arabian practice, need to be banished from the soil of our earth.

  •  @gulam mohiyuddin K ban triple talaq.But when u r talking about gender equality.U should also raise the issue of banning the saints sadhus who roam naked in full public
    Why only man?Is this gender equality?
    Suppose if their where womens in the place of man.Till now it would have been banned.Why this in equality.

Read and get the knowledge. Even crimes are more in hindu society than muslims. You must focus on it and no need to be concerned about muslims. You are wasting your time unnecessarily.

  • Sultan shahin, correct yourself first and tell. Is Quran written or revealed? Are you brother of Tarek Fatah? I think so. If one is wrong. Is it meant religion is wrong? Study the Quran first. You may be guided. Quran is the only book where there are solutions of all the problems. And there is no religion in the universe except islam. Read it properly.

  • Crime and Criminals.
    Sh.L K Advani,Murli Monohar Joshi,Uma Bharati and others are again summoned by Court for destruction of Babri Masjid and Court is getting supports from all so called Seculars ,Intellectuals,Bollywood peoples,mullahs and Maulabis.Every body wants jail for the above for destruction of just one Masjid.
    In Kashmir more than three hundred Temples were destroyed since 1990 and there is no FIR,no arrest and no comments from Intellectuals,Award Wapsi gangs,Human right agencies,poets with self style humanity supporters,NGOs etc.What it shows the Seculars are only Communally biased.
    It is in report that a Masjid is going for construction in a land of Hindu temple in Kerala.
    It confirms that the life span of Secularism in India is till Hindus are in Majority (means Secularism is directly Connected to Hindu Majority in India).Otherwise in this world no ISLAMIC nation is Secular and in India too in the cities or Districts where Muslims are in Majority they forced others to leave those Cities/Districts/states.So we needs to teach all Citizens of India the term equality/equal status and only Uniform Civil Code will provide equality in India and Justice to all Section of Society and Muslim Women too who are victim of Tripple talaq.

  • Triple Talak has nothing to do with religion. It's entire a gender issue concerning equality and dignity of women. Moreover, religion is made for human not vice versa. So something against human dignity in any religion, that can't be part of religion coz every individual is not in the universe but he or she is the universe, an intrinsic part of it ultimately. He or she is not a person, but focal point where the universe is becoming conscious. By Indrajeet Singh - 4/23/2017 11:01:08 AM

  • Illogical thinking and knowledgelessness By Talut Khan - 4/23/2017 11:00:43 AM

  • Iqbal Husain sahib; first my position about Koran and lack of science in it is not deliberate. I am not suggesting Muslims have come from moon. It is well known that early Arabs had scientific temper. But to confuse science and religion is comparing oranges and apples. Koran may have scientific temper; but followers of Koran are mostly blind followers. Secondly, why tie religion with science, because religion seems to stifle reason,it is more clear in Islam than anywhere else.Besides, why tell Muslims, only koranic science is important for you,rest is immaterial. It breeds tribalism. Which Muslims are struggling to caste aside. By Bilhan Kaul - 4/23/2017 11:00:20 AM

  • Rest of India should learn from Goa state which is enjoying common civil code for last 60 years and more,wherein every marriage is compulsorily registered with civil registrar boy and girl or husband and wife has equal share on property,no individual of any religion can have more than one wife for divorce one has to approach civil court for annulment of marriage what ever may be his religion. By Mp Naik - 4/19/2017 11:54:41 PM

  • The simple fact is that DIVORCE is a PROCESS to legally dissolve a marriage. And Arabic word for it is TALAQ. It is not magic word of which mere pronouncement results in dissolution of marriage.  

    As far as verse 2:229 is concern there is no word in the verse  which can be translated as "Pronounce". So, it simply says that divorce is (allowed) two times. If couple go for divorce third time, then divorce  process is not reversible.

    By ZAHEER HUSAIN KHAN - 4/17/2017 5:22:55 AM

  • It is an excellent article that completely dismisses the false and unfounded claim that triple tallaq is a Qur'anic dictate.

    The truth is, any educated Muslim of this era who is not in a state of drunkenness, or mentally impaired and says that “The triple Talaq at one go is based on the Quran” is an open denier of the Qur’anic message that stipulates a three month time frame for divorce as the article expounds quoting several Qur'anic verses and corroborating with the views of the renowned Muslim scholars of the first six centuries of Islam.  This is also expounded on the strength of the Qur’an in my following article quoting the same verses as the article lists:

    Qur’anic Sharia (Laws) On Divorce: Triple Divorce, Temporary Marriage, Halala Stand Forbidden (Haram)


    Triple tallaq (at one go) this day reflects a deep and abhorrent form of misogyny that can reduce a married Muslim woman to the level of bond-maid and only those who hold their wives and daughters in the lowest esteem can support by quoting  some secondary sources out of socio-historical context and in complete disregard of the Qur’anic message. For them, it appears, the Secondary sources, which were obviously tailored to the needs of their era, are more sacred than the Qur’an and so all that is contradictory to Qur’anic message in the Secondary sources is apparently more sacred to these people than the word of God. Thus they have created a new Medieval-era based religion centered around the Secondary sources - which is not the Islam preserved eternally in the Qur'an - and God knows best.

    By muhammd yunus - 4/16/2017 8:34:37 PM

  • The Ulema and community leaders have made this an identity issue. They are aware that triple talaq is out of date and has to be discontinued. However, they stick to it on the pretext of saving their faith and divine law. Unfortunately, they have support among majority of people including those who are relatively secular. Any unilateral action to enforce ban on this practice may lead to a major social unrest. By Ashok Sharma - 4/16/2017 2:03:17 PM

  • All Muslim personal laws must be formulated by civil society and must comply with the following two rules:

    (1) They must be consonant with the  moral and ethical standards of contemporary society.

    (2) They must meet the Quranic requirements of fairness, justice, equality (including gender equality), rationality, compassion and upholding the dignity of both men and women.

    The Supreme Court will do well to ignore antediluvian and unsupportable arguments of groups such as the AIMPLB.
