    Feminism and Islam

    Post  Somalienne nationalista on Tue Nov 25, 2008 2:04 am

    SWA,

    Feminism and women’s rights in Islam a topic usually misconstrued, at times they are muddled. Can you be a hardcore feminist without disobeying your Islamic principles?

    Personally, I dont think the ideals of feminism are compatible with Islam. I am all for the empowerment of women, but this doesn't have to done through feminist ideology. Islam already allots rights and freedoms to women; infact our religion values the woman so much that Allah dedicated entire surahs for them (ex.Nisaa, Maryam)

    Back in high school, I automatically labelled myself as a feminist because I believed that women are as capable of men to get just about anything done. As the years went by, I learned that feminists promote things like homosexuality, something not permissible in Islam. For some reason, I decided to detach that label and discovered that Islam devotes so much to the woman... she is her own person with her own seperate identity. Feminism on the other hand doesn't believe in that, they believe that women should not be regarded as seperate from men... this is clearly in confrontation with the tenants of Islam. I am not too educated on this matter, but personally I do feel that Islam and western feminism are not compatible with one another... As a woman, I am pretty much satisfied with the rights and freedoms Allah the Almighty has blessed me with... Alhamdulilaah

    True, Islam offers women various privileges but–some (men) have bended those rights, in the direction of being superior over women –which would boil the temperature of an average woman, and she would now call herself a feminist. If men would have acknowledged, and pursued faithfully what is scripted in the Quran and the Hadiths, I highly believe that feminism wouldn’t have existed.

    Both genders have different roles in life. There some things that man can do, that woman is incapable of accomplishing, and vice versa, and this would evenly balance both genders.

    With that said, life has changed; time has passed –which means that genders aren’t the same, as to those of the Prophets’ (Pbuh) time. I believe that woman, should provide to her family at whatever reason necessary –inside or outside. I see myself as a feminist, but only to an extend! lol

    Islam is against Feminism and Women Power ( cause women can misuse that power in torturing us (Miskin ) Men ( women can be so evil sometimes )

    الرِّجَالُ قَوَّامُونَ عَلَى النِّسَاءِ بِمَا فَضَّلَ اللَّهُ بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ وَبِمَا أَنْفَقُوا مِنْ أَمْوَالِهِمْ فَالصَّالِحَاتُ قَانِتَاتٌ حَافِظَاتٌ لِلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ اللَّهُ وَاللَّاتِي تَخَافُونَ نُشُوزَهُنَّ فَعِظُوهُنَّ وَاهْجُرُوهُنَّ فِي الْمَضَاجِعِ وَاضْرِبُوهُنَّ فَإِنْ أَطَعْنَكُمْ فَلَا تَبْغُوا عَلَيْهِنَّ سَبِيلًا إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيًّا كَبِيرًا

    034 Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because God has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what God would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance): For God is Most High, Great (above you all). ( Al Nisa )

    There is not nothing wrong about woman power. First, Islam is the only dean that granted woman rights since the 7th century and Woman and mens have the same rights in islam. That is beauty about Islam. Some society gave bad imgaes to Islam which some of them in Arab world practicing pre islamic custom such honoring killing. That's is ignorance and islam baned those and those people are commuting the worst sins. I think the Islamic Imams need to talk about this more and they to speak about it more. So, their is purpose about about this aya and if you read previous aya will tell you why. Womans today in Somali will be the ones that will fix our problems.

    if all muslim women had true understanding of islam, there would be no need for feminism..

    the truth is allah (who by the way is the creater of women) and as such would know them better then anyone including themselves, has given them all the dignity and the rights that is befitting of them.

    +1

    Essentially it. Islam isn't practiced as it should, women are not treated as they should. You can't subject humans and expect nothing. Feminism was born.
