How is this for trying to get people to understand that culture differs greatly from Islam? What happens in culture is completely different from what Islam says, and most of the men in these cultures are going against Islam while following rituals. What do you think of this and how does this make you feel?
Islam gave women rights and privileges at a time when only barbaric manners and values dominated.
Yet, some people argue that Islam has alienated women in some domains. In fact, this belief is a misconception. People who say so, may have read about it in a magazine or seen it on TV. A quick examination of the issues judged as unjust to women will certainly correct the misunderstanding.
Man as the head of the household:
Some people believe that a woman in Islam is regarded as inferior to man since the Quran says (what means):
Men have one degree above women. [Quran 2: 228]
exellent post. *star*
but…if only they were intelligent enough to actually understand.
i love tht quote u put up, ppl always take ONE WORD out of it to make it look bad. here:
“women have rights similar to those of men, except men have a degree above them.”
however, wat ppl have done is take the word “responsibility” out of the quote. here is the real quote:
“women have rights similar to those of men, except men have a degree OF RESPONSIBILTY above them.”
see how ONE WORD can make such a big difference?
AND Y DO THESE PPL KEEP STATING THE FACT THT WOMEN CANT DRIVE IN SAUDI ARABIA??????? THTS NOT THE BEST EXAMPLE OF AN ISLAMIC STATE. IT IS A COUNTRY AND NO COUNTRY CAN REPRESENT ISLAM PERFECTLY.
now, im gonna paste a list of womens rights in every society, and then in ISLAM.
i tried to find a list in hinduism, turns out there is none. so im gonna post what the Vedas command men to do to women.

WOMEN IN ISLAM
“O ye who believe! Ye are forbidden to inherit women against their will. Nor should ye treat them with harshness, that ye may take away part of the dower [money given by the husband to the wife for the marriage contract] ye have given them, except where they have been guilty of open lewdness; on the contrary live with them on a footing of kindness and equity. If ye take a dislike to them it may be that ye dislike a thing, and God brings about through it a great deal of good. (The Noble Quran, 4:19)”
I REST MY CASE.
hello zero this is bravo two zero you are talking rubbish Islam treates woman good, look at what you did to Princess Diana was that the western way freedom, what freedom did you give her?
Jazaki Allah khair for clarifying that
Well put! Baraka la feeq!
And you’re protecting them from jokes about women drivers too, I suppose.
What next? Selling Brooklyn Bridge?
Treating women like precious dresden dolls who ought to be sheltered, covered and protected from modern society is not equality; it is oppression. Women are adults and every bit as good as a man, and often better.
“In fact, to understand this Quranic verse, you should see another one, related to the issue in question. It reveals the wisdom behind this concept.”
Apologetics are always amusing. Basically what you’re saying is “this evil passage really isn’t evil when you look at it from another perspective, blah, blah, blah…”
Save it. Next to the bible, the koran is one of the most evil books of mythology ever written.
some people dont know the biffrent from black and white so how can they understand any thing else
i guess you should go give this info to saudi arabia and other arab nations where women are lower than dogs, cant drive, vote or show skin in public.
i’m wondering about the thousands of women that are murdered by family members over perceived violations of their “religion” or dishonour to their family for marrying the wrong muslim or different religion. those women wouldn’t agree with you or any of the other morons who bow and open their mouths for that cult.
