Women Rights: Bible vs Quran

Published February 14, 2013 by AbdulJabarAzimi


Treatment of Women in Jewish, Christian & Islam Faiths
Historical research indicates women have always been oppressed by male dominated religions.
What is Islam’s position on this? by Dr. Sherif Muhammad

Dr. Sherif Mohammad, an eminent writer-thinker with an academic background in electrical engineering. He currently lives in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

Note:Since modern Western thought and paradigmas are based on Western cultural heritage, what is meant by religion has been the Judeo-Christian tradition. Both the Western thinkers and Orientalists and “Westernized” intellectuals in the Muslim world, in ignorance of Islam, have tended to criticize Islam from the perspective of the critics directed to the Judeo-Christian tradition. What follows is of great importance especially in correcting and clarifying this important matter from the viewpoint of the status of women in Islam.

Do Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have the same conception of women?

Are they different in their conceptions?

Do Judaism and Christianity, truly, offer women a better treatment than Islam does?

What is the Truth?

It is not easy to search for and find answers to these difficult questions. The first difficulty is that one has to be fair and objective or, at least, do one’s utmost to be so. This is what Islam teaches. The Quran has instructed Muslims to say the truth even if those who are very close to them do not like it:

“Whenever you speak — speak justly even if a near relative is concerned.” (6:152) “O you who believe, stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor.” (4:135).

The other great difficulty is the overwhelming breadth of the subject. Therefore, during the last few years, I have spent many hours reading the Bible, The Encyclopedia of Religion, and the Encyclopedia Judaica searching for answers. I have also read several books discussing the position of women in different religions written by scholars, apologists, and critics. The material presented in the following chapters represents the important findings of this humble research. I don’t claim to be absolutely objective. This is beyond my limited capacity. All I can say is that I have been trying, throughout this research, to approach the Quranic ideal of “speaking justly”.

I would like to emphasize in this introduction that my purpose for this study is not to denigrate Judaism or Christianity.

As Muslims, we believe in the divine origins of both. No one can be a Muslim without believing in Moses and Jesus as great prophets of God.

My goal is only to vindicate Islam and pay a tribute, long overdue in the West, to the final truthful Message from God to the human race.

I would also like to emphasize that I concerned myself only with Doctrine. That is, my concern is, mainly, the position of women in the three religions as it appears in their original sources not as practised by their millions of followers in the world today.

Therefore, most of the evidence cited comes from the Quran, the sayings of Prophet Muhammad, the Bible, the Talmud, and the sayings of some of the most influential Church Fathers whose views have contributed immeasurably to defining and shaping Christianity. This interest in the sources relates to the fact that understanding a certain religion from the attitudes and the behaviour of some of its nominal followers is misleading.

Many people confuse culture with religion, many others do not know what their religious books are saying, and many others do not even care.

Power of Guardianship in the Marriage Contract

Published December 11, 2012 by AbdulJabarAzimi


In Islamic jurisprudence one requirement for a sound marriage is the total agreement of the woman concerned.

The Prophet of Allah said (Peace be upon Him):

An “ayyim” (a divorcee or a widow) must not be wedded unless she is asked, and gives her approval. And a virgin must not be wedded unless she is consulted.”
It was asked: “O messenger of Allah, How is her permission?”
He said: “If she remains silent.”

[Sahih Bukhari #4843 & Muslim #1419]

If a woman is coerced into accepting an undesired marriage, she is entitled to present her case before a Muslim judge to seek annulment. A woman by the name of al-Khansa bint Khadam, who had been previously married (and was now divorced or widowed), came complaining to the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon Him) that her father had forced her to marry a person she despised. He disapproved and invalidated it.

(Reported by Bukhari #6546)

Misconceptions About Women In Islam (Polygamy/Polygyny)

Published December 11, 2012 by AbdulJabarAzimi

There are some misconceptions that have been widely propagated about women and their rights in Islam. These misconceptions are often repeated by some that maliciously seek to defame Islam and Muslims. Women throughout the past centuries of Islam have been honored, respected, and dignified. The crimes of some who deviate do not reflect upon the principles and laws on which Islam is based. We shall present some answers to these common misconceptions that have been publicized about women’s rights in Islam and the position of women in Islam in general.
