Q. Some people say women are not allowed to work? Is that true?

By Shaykh Muhammad Salim Ghisa

A.

In the name of Allah the Most Beneficent and Merciful.

Allah has defined roles for men and women by looking at their strengths and weaknesses and assigning them with certain responsibilities. However, there is no where in the Shariah where there is a point blank refusal for women to work or for men not to do the household chores.
Both these duties are permissible and sometimes recommended depending on each of the situations.

"Sports Hijab" not just for Muslim women

The next sporty must-have is not just for Muslim women

The ResportOn, a tight-fitting hoodie covering the hair, is the new sports hijab – but it's attracting orders from non-Muslim women and men

Move over, Nigella's burkini – you are so last season. The latest addition to the modest Muslim wardrobe is the ResportOn, a sleek sports hijab designed for female Muslim athletes who like to keep their hair covered while working up a sweat.

The ResportOn, whose tagline is "Be Yourself. Unveil your performance", is the brainchild of Iranian-born French-Canadian designer Elham Seyed Javad.

Shias Value Females

-

MOST VALUED WOMEN

For men of Shia Islam, women are special status human beings.

That is why males do not stare at women. Men keep their eyes lowered. They honour women. Females are highly valued by Shia mulsims. Ask any Shia female how much they are appreciated by Shia men.

Shia females are respected the most in the world. Women know their high value in the eyes on Shia males.

Shia men highly regard females. They love their wives. They love their daughters. They love their sisters. They are very respectful to all women.

In Shia history, the holy ladies such as Fatima and Zaynab are models of beauty, peace, truth and justice.

This love is what Imam Ali, the Saint of God, has given to Shia men.

Why Women Nag

Women nag about their husbands’ uselessness because it makes them feel more feminine, a new study has revealed. According to Daily Mail, researchers insist that men’s lack of effort on the domestic front could actually be a myth created by their partners, as female breadwinners feel guilty about devoting too much time to their career, and not enough to their role of wife and mother.

By complaining about their husbands' alleged shortcomings, they feel more feminine because they can control the traditionally female role of maintaining the home and family.

The Woman: a parable

A man was walking through the marketplace one afternoon when, just as the muezzin began the call to prayer, his eye fell on a woman's back. She was strangely attractive, though dressed in fulsome black, a veil over head and face, and she now turned to him as if somehow conscious of his over-lingering regard, and gave him a slight but meaningful nod before she rounded the corner into the lane of silk sellers. As if struck by a bolt from heaven, the man was at once drawn, his heart a prisoner of that look, forever. In vain he struggled with his heart, offering it one sound reason after another to go his way, wasn't it time to pray? but it was finished: there was nothing but to follow.

Belgian lawmakers pass burka ban

More if women want to wear it and do wear it, they will potentially be made to go indoors (into a cell - eitehr pay a fine or upto 7 days imprisonment).

Very liberating.

There are also suggestions that there are a huge number of women who wear the burka in Belgium. Thirty.

Belgium's lower house of parliament has voted for a law that would ban women from wearing the full Islamic face veil in public.

The law would ban any clothing that obscures the identity of the wearer in places like parks and on the street. No-one voted against it.

The law now goes to the Senate, where it may face challenges over its wording, which may delay it.

If passed, the ban would be the first move of its kind in Europe.

‘Equal but different.’

Discuss how adequately this sums up the relationship between males and females in Islam.

Many people believe that because of the similarities between men and women, they should be, and are, completely equal and should be treated so. Other people however believe that because of the natural physical and mental differences, they can never be fully equal and that should be respected. Other people however, maintain that equality is an abstract relative concept and so full equality can never be achieved because we’ll never agree on what constitutes true equality.
