Thoughts Lead To Appreciation
To Basmah Bint Saud, education should be directed so that children in Saudi Arabia can:
Think freely, innovate and use their initiative for the betterment of our society.
She is rightly critical of the rote system of learning.
Basmah believes in equality of humanity.
In accordance with the Sharee’ah, Basmah calls for the right of a woman to divorce, without recourse to the consent of her husband or the presiding qadi.
There is an urgent need to cease the current norm of restricting the rights of women granted by Allah and elucidated by His Prophet Muhammad.
Basmah advocates fairness in the justice system and a uniform judicial system that conforms to the principles of Islam.
A universally-accepted mode of implementation of the Sharee’ah is appropriate, with citizens awareness of the range of endorsed behaviours and the judicial system adoption of a framework for issuing rulings.
As a mother, Basmah understands the value of a woman’s right to custody of her children.
This is a law founded in the Sharee’ah, but readily flouted by many.
Basmah Bint Saud is an advocate for women’s rights in every sense.
In Allah’s Law, the Sharee’ah, a woman has the right and freedom to decide her life pattern, manage her finances and choose her career and spouse.
Our Religion should not be a shield behind which we hide from the world, but a driving force that inspires us to innovate and contribute to our surroundings.
