In the name of Allāh,
the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Peace and Blessings of Allāh on Mohammad.
Allāh–the Glorious and the High,
Lord of the worlds
Mohammad–who brought the world
to our feet and eternity to our arms.
Nonie Darwish wrote in her book Now They Call Me Infidel: “How ironic that while sharia laws are being challenged by brave Arab and Muslim feminists in the Middle East, we are seeing radical Muslim groups promoting sharia laws to apply to Muslims in Canada.” (p. 232).
Response: Those “Arab and Muslim feminists in the Middle East” are not brave; they are ignorant of the teachings of Islam, just as you are. It is not SHARIAH that needs to be reformed. It is the Muslim’s understanding of Shari'ah that needs to be reformed. The system designed by Allāh, the Omniscient, is perfect. Allāh is Just. He does not discriminate against woman who has no choice in her form and physiology; a form and physiology He gave her. The Muslim woman has rights as those against her–(Qur’an 2:228).
Islam/Shari'ah does not have to conform to man: man has to conform to Shari'ah. These “Muslim feminists in the Middle East” need to trash their ignorant slogans and learn the Qur’an/ Islam and demand their Allāh-given rights from their equally ignorant and maybe arrogant men-folk. Let them know that they cannot expect justice from Allāh when they deny women their dues/justice. There is no system on the face of this earth that is more just and equitable than Shari'ah.
There is no stoning in Islam; no honor killing; no death for apostasy and blasphemy; no indiscriminate dismembering; and no “easy” divorce. (See these topics under ISLAM).
