Islam and the Divine Feminine
Mahmoud Mostafa

But it wasn’t always this way. In its original revelation and manifestation, Islam was, and remains, a guidance system that brings the human being into balance and integrates our masculine and feminine aspects into a unified whole. 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....

Muslim World Needs A 'No Hijab Day' To Return The Power Of Choice To Muslim Women!
Farouk A. Peru

Islamophobes of the physically aggressive variety zero in on to these cultural signals and the hijab is the most obvious one. Hijab wearing women are victims of these attacks quite sadly possibly due to their perceived vulnerability. They need greater protection from the community....

I emphasise that I have always considered Islam an emancipatory religion, which advocates social equality, economic and political democratisation, and empowerment of minorities. The religion that I was raised in opposed to the subjection of religious minorities to a centralised and authoritarian state. Equality before law and in economy, politics, and society is in perfect consonance with the Islamic thought that I revere....

Certainly, hundreds of thousands of Souads in different corners of the globe are not fortunate enough to experience a magical survival like her....

In the Sight of Allah, Honour Is Not Related To Colour Creed or Gender; If a Woman Is More Righteous, She Is More Honoured Than a Man
Dr Taseer Salahuddin

Till 16th century Europeans and Muslims had very similar ideology regarding religion. Moral bankruptcy of the top stratum of the Catholic Church resulted in the loss of faith in the West on a vast scale. This led to the emergence of ‘protestant’ sect in Christianity in order to save their religion from moral corruption of the popes who were involved in extreme luxuries, selling pardon for sins to support that level of luxurious life and legitimising bastards Tuchman (1984)...

Gender Ideology, Hegemonic masculinity and violence
Mariana Prandini Assis & Ana Carolina Ogando

One of the high points of the crusade against "gender ideology" was during what many see as the parliamentary coup against the Workers' Party in 2016.While many factors and political interests were at play during the impeachment proceedings against Dilma, the reactionary discourse on gender and sexuality played an important role in galvanising popular support for the move.

We encourage dominance in our sons and submission in our daughters, and by doing so perpetuate a cycle that results in the crushing effects of patriarchy. Our political system, our judiciary and our boardrooms are still run mainly by men. Whether we like it or not, our key decision makers are male. But if change is to come, it will be with men as our comrades and not as our enemies.
