Woman and Her Rights in Islam – eBook


The requirements of our time make it essential to re-evaluate many vital questions and not to be content with their former appraisal. The system of conjugal rights and family responsibilities is one such question.
For certain reasons, to which we will refer later, it has been presumed that in this age the basic question in this field is that of woman’s liberty and the equality of her rights with those of man, all other questions being the by-products of this main question.[divider]

The result is the Part One of this booklet, which contains the lecture and the questions and answers which followed.

Research: British Muslim Women 71% more Likely to Be Unemployed


Discrimination against Muslim women in the workplace means they are much more likely to be unemployed than white Christian women – even when they have the same qualifications and language skills – research showed.

British Muslim women are around 70 percent more likely to be looking unsuccessfully for work, according to the University of Bristol’s Nabil Khattab, who spoke at the British Sociological Association’s annual conference in Glasgow, The Independent reported.

The recent national Labor Force survey showed the unemployment rate among Muslim women was 18 percent, compared with 9 percent for Muslim women and 4 percent for white Christian women. This has previously been attributed to Muslim women being less well educated and less fluent in English, but Khattab says his data shows the discrepancy is also likely to be explained by employer discrimination.

Khattab analyzed a sample of 2,643 from the national Labor Force survey to compare the rates of those looking for work without success. He adjusted the sample in order to compare women with similar educational level and language abilities and controlled for marital status, children and strength of religious belief.

He found that Muslim women were 71 percent more likely than white Christian women to be unemployed, even when they had the same educational level and language skills. Muslim women were 57 percent more likely to be unemployed than white Christian women.

“Economic activity among Muslim women in the UK remains considerably lower and their unemployment rate remains significantly higher than the majority group even after controlling for qualifications and other individual characteristics,” Khattab said.

He added that the conspicuousness of Muslim women’s religious background was likely to be a key factor in explaining their exclusion. “They wear the hijab or other religious symbols which makes them more visible and as such exposed to greater discrimination.”

Southern California Muslim women hand out hundreds of roses to promote peace and unity / Photos

The Muslim Women Network of Southern California handed out free roses over the weekend to promote peace, unity, diversity and freedom.


Fatemeh Nassirian, right, president of the Muslim Women Network of Southern California, hands out a free rose at the Irvine Spectrum.

The group planned to hand out 1,500 roses at the Irvine Spectrum, Downtown Disney and the Beverly Center in Los Angeles.

Besides distributing roses, the Muslim women planned to spread messages of Islam, including from the prophet Muhammad: “Feed the hungry and visit the sick, and free the captive if he is unjustly confined. Assist any person oppressed, whether Muslim or non-Muslim. ”

“There are too many misconceptions about Islam. Unfortunately usually the media doesn’t display the life of real Muslims. They mostly talk about the people that hijacked name of Islam, and everything they do is against true teachings of Islam.
Those terrorists not only kill non-Muslims but their main targets are real Muslims,” said Shalizeh Aftabi, an organizer of the event. “For example a while ago in Iraq in just one day ISIS killed almost 1,700 young Shi’a Muslims.”

Michigan man charged in attack on Muslim woman


MASON, Mich. – A Mason man was charged with ethnic intimidation and a misdemeanor assault and battery charge in connection with an assault on a Muslim woman at the Meridian Mall on July 19.

Jonathan Patrick Deuel, 29, was arraigned today in 55th District Court in Mason, accused of participating in assault of the woman near the mall’s food court. Deuel was arrested on Wednesday by Meridian Township Police.

The ethnic intimidation charge is a felony punishable by up to two years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine. Assault and battery is generally a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment of up to 93 days and fines of up to $500.

The Council on Arab-Islamic Relations – a Muslim civil liberties advocacy group – spoke with the woman’s family and said that three people, two men and a woman, had surrounded the 26-year-old at the mall.

They then allegedly tried to pull off her niqab and abaya – the veil and dress that some Muslim women choose to wear in public – before knocking her to the ground and shouting slurs and profanities at her.

“We urge state, local and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate a possible bias motive for this troubling incident and to make every effort to bring the alleged perpetrators to justice,” said Dawud Walid, executive director of CAIR-Michigan, said on July 21. “We urge public officials to speak out against the anti-Muslim hate that can lead to such attacks.”

Meridian Township Police say that Deuel will be the only person charged in the incident, contrary to the claims of multiple assailants made by CAIR. Lt. Greg Frenger said that while there were other people who witnessed the attack, Deuel is the only person to commit a crime.

“I don’t foresee any other charges coming out of this,” Frenger said. “There were other people present but only one person committed a crime.”

The incident was investigated as a hate crime and Frenger said that behavior such as this would not be tolerated in Meridian Township.

“This sort of thing is unusual for this community,” he said. “This is a diverse community and any person living and working in this area should not feel like there’s going to be any hesitation on our part to investigate such a claim.

“This is who we’re made up of,” Frenger added. “We took it seriously when it first came to our attention and followed through. We’re pleased that charges have been issued and he’s been arrested.”

Deuel’s bond was set at $25,000 and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 21 in Mason.
