Women in General 8item In our family there is a divorcee, and amongst our relatives there is a widow besides three spinsters. I see this state as irregular, though it is as a result of our society’s ignorance of Islam, which they construe as just praying, fasting, and some other traditional rituals. They have turned their backs on the verdicts of Islam concerning polygamy, temporary marriage, facilitating marriage, and avoiding the habits from the time of ignorance. Would you please show us the verdict of Islam towards the situations of these women? Is it right to limit women and give men freedom? How can the dominance of men over women in the family that the Quran mentions be justified? What is the status of the woman in Islam? Are they the same as men? What is the difference between men and women in Islam? What is the difference between men and women in Islam? What is the position of women in prophetic traditions? What philosophy lies behind the genders` differences as regards their religious duties and rights conferred by the religion? Is there a rational explanation for these differences?
