PostSubject: Women's Rights in Islam   Mon Jul 19, 2010 7:59 pm

How can anyone justify Islam's treatment of women, when it imprisons Afghans under blue shuttlecock burqas and makes Pakistani girls marry strangers against their will? How can you respect a religion that forces women into polygamous marriages, mutilates their genitals, forbids them to drive cars and subjects them to the humiliation of "instant" divorce? In fact, none of these practices are Islamic at all

by Ruqaiyyah Waris Maqsood
How can anyone justify Islam's treatment of women, when it imprisons Afghans under blue shuttlecock burqas and makes Pakistani girls marry strangers against their will? How can you respect a religion that forces women into polygamous marriages, mutilates their genitals, forbids them to drive cars and subjects them to the humiliation of "instant" divorce? In fact, none of these practices are Islamic at all. [More]

They hate women, don't they?
Muslim and secular feminists pity one another. It is time they realised they have much common ground, argues Arzu Merali.

English Translation of the Lecture held by Dr. Jur., Ph.D. Christina Jones on June 14th, 1998 in Göttingen, Germany.

Claiming Our Rights: A Manual for Women's Human Rights Education in Muslim Societies
"The spirit of Islam is egalitarian. We can have a life of civility, of plurality, that is respectful of the religion and draws on it." Barbara Crossette reports on an "Islam-based and not threatening" manual on women's rights.

Turning Sex Into Sadaqa [an act of voluntary kindness pleasing to God]
Now, every man knows what sexual things please him - but some men, particularly those who have not been married before and are therefore lacking experience, don't seem to know much about how to give the same pleasure to the woman; even worse, some men do know but they can't be bothered to make the effort. Yet this is vital if a marriage is to succeed and not just be a disappointing burden for the woman, and it is a vital part of one's Islamic duty.
An excerpt from 'The Muslim Marriage Guide', By Ruqaiyyah Waris Maqsood.

Women's Rights and Equality in Islam
