Thoughts Lead To Appreciation
The title is dramatic, is it not?
Well, if one is aware of media reports, one will agree that there seems to be a war within Islam between males and females, with the latter having the lower hand and in urgent need of ‘liberation’ from men.
I say Muslim women need liberation all right, but from self and other women.
In this series, I shall explore male-female relationships.
Generally, Muslim women perceive maleness as authoritarian and dictatorial whose orders are inviolable, who can not be opposed and whose person is distant, cold and repulsive.
These women hold that no social interaction must exist between opposite sexes.
Their opinion is based on the prohibition of sexual relations outside the legal framework of marriage and the discouragement of two individuals of opposite gender to be alone in an enclosure.
In addition, they assert that such interactions contradicts a woman’s respectable nature.
I shall let you readers ponder over these words and prepare your thoughts for the next part of this discussion.
