Assalaamualekum Sister Cyra...

Anyone who is familiar with the content of the Qur'an and the realities of Islamic history know that Muslims owe their earlier remarkable progress in the area of law and human rights to the Qur'an and deeply enshrined universal human principles....The status of women in premodern Islam in general conformed not to Quranic ideals but to prevailing patriarchal cultural norms..Traditionalist Muslim scholars sometimes stick to interpretations based on a set of outdated normative assumptions and archaic cultural premises which emanated from some historical realities that no longer exist today....Any interpretation of the Qur'an that is discriminatory against women or minorities is fundamentally contradictory to its core spirit, general principles and ultimate purposes...Education, reform and a deep understanding of our scriptural sources would Insha Allah bridge the gap between our values and implementation of it which seeks equity, justice and dignity for all ....The perspective of Muslim women needs to be included in order to understand the true contours of the problem...Oppression is a subtle, insidious thing  and not even fully understood by those who suffer from it.... Most forms of oppression are so deeply ingrained in society that those who suffer, and the ones they love, may help perpetuate it without realizing....I guess we all have to wake up and challenge the world around us to bring it back to the ideals we were meant to uphold as ordained by our religion...
 
Please take a look at this clip ....Dr Tariq Ramadan talks about the root of the problem
 
 
But there is light at the end of the tunnel Insha Allah...
 
 
 
Peace sister,
Thank you so much for your posts here..You add for this topic so precious meaning rather clarification of many misconceptions and misunderstanding about the position of woman in Islam...
Your messages come here as the white bird on its beak the flag of peace.....
Thank you Well wisher.
I hoped to see the video of Dr Tarik Ramadan but unfortunately the youtube does not function in my country. I don't know why or where is exactly the matter?!
In all cases, my best regards sister to you and all who is able here to say even a small trustful and sincere word on the right of the truth..the unique absolute one without any prejudge or  vain assumptions..
And ''there is light at the end of the tunnel ''...surely yes God willing.
 
Greetings

That's too bad that it's banned in Tunisia and other countries.  We must be thankful for freedom of speech here in the U.S. and hope that other countries will give their citizens these rights someday.

My new born god daughter was left on the streets of a small town in Pakistan to die by her maternal (Muslim) grandfather because she was a female and the mother had refused to move to the US with her husband. 

The American father's extended family heard what was happening to the baby and rescued her from the street.  They then notified the American father.  The father and his father were rushed through .gov channels to where the baby had been taken by their family members and brought her out.  She is 9 years old now, absolutely beautiful, intelligent and lives a wonderful life in the USA. 

The baby's (Muslim) mother was sold to an older man as wife #4 from whom she is now divorced with even more children she has a hard time caring for. 


Wow, I am so sorry to hear this story. It is such a shame that human beings like that still get to breathe God's air. When it comes to children, I get too emotional. No child should have to suffer regardless of gender, race, religion (there is no religion at that age), parents, etc.

Sadly, regardless of where you go there are many rotten people. Even sadder is that in other countries, culture plays a very important part of life, even more than Islam does. Obviously, what this person did was a crime in Islam. It goes against some of the very early prohibitions God gave.

But this is not what Islam teaches. But not every Muslim practices Islam.

Tunisia blocked access to YouTube? :) Makes sense. I've seen some very horrible information on there. I mean, this site is great for many things, but there's so many bad things on there. I was seeing people taping other people die, bad fist fights, things that are acceptable in US culture but are close to pornographic in Islam, etc. Even when I'm watching a documentary on YouTube, a filthy ad would pop up to the side, etc. I think that our lack of censorship is the whole reason why our country is getting worse and worse. I don't really oppose freedom of speech, etc. but I don't oppose a government trying to protect its people from horrible things. It's like a father monitoring what his children and family are watching on television in order to protect them from things pertaining to violence, drugs, sex, etc. The government has the same duty to its people, but then again, who's there then to prevent them from going overboard with censorship?
