  • Now watch GM sb the apostate dodge the questions that corner him. The lying hypocrite that he is, he will not answer the following two simple, straightforward questions:
    1. Can you tell us what the Quran says on the subject of  female witnesses?
    2. Do you endorse it?

  • The only answer from Naseer sb. is to call me an apostate, showing again the low level of his discourse. He has no hesitation or shame in misquoting  the Quran.

  • GM sb, the apostate has spoken. What can be expected of him except opposition to a correct understanding of the Quran?

  • Naseer sb. says, "The Quran also does not equate the testimony of two women to that of one man, but merely allows women the privilege and option of witnessing jointly."
    This is false.

  • Bilqis was at least a thousand years before Muhammad (pbuh) and there were many other women rulers besides. The Prophet's own first wife was an independent business woman and the Prophet's employer before their marriage. There were always women superior to men in education, social/economic status and even to this day, there are millions of uneducated men. The Hadith therefore makes no sense and is concocted falsehood. The Quran also does not equate the testimony of two women to that of one man, but merely allows women the privilege and option of witnessing jointly.

    Read:    Is A Woman’s Testimony Worth Half That of A Man?

  • Hadith mentions the reason why women were treated unequally was due to the deficiency of women's mind instead of any other reason.  The following is the extract:
    Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri:
    The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Isn't the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?" The women said, "Yes." He said, "This is because of the deficiency of a woman's mind."
    حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ أَبِي مَرْيَمَ، أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي زَيْدٌ، عَنْ عِيَاضِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏"‏ أَلَيْسَ شَهَادَةُ الْمَرْأَةِ مِثْلَ نِصْفِ شَهَادَةِ الرَّجُلِ ‏"‏‏.‏ قُلْنَا بَلَى‏.‏ قَالَ ‏"‏ فَذَلِكَ مِنْ نُقْصَانِ عَقْلِهَا ‏"‏‏.‏
    The above is the extract from Sahih al-Bukhari 2658; in-book reference: book 52, hadith 22; USC-MSA web (English) reference: Vol 3, book 48, hadith 826.
    The phrase, the witness of a woman equal to half..of a man..is because of the deficiency of woman's mind, as mentioned above implies women in the past as demanded by Quran to be unequal with men were merely due to the deficiency of their mind instead of any other reason, such as it is Allah's mind to do it or it is Allah's decision to condemn women or any other reasons.
    The phrase, the deficiency of their mind, as mentioned here implies women in the past were less intelligence to men due to they were uneducated or unfair treatment to them may not annoy them as compared to men.  However, modern women are more educated than historical women and much more intellectual than them.  To modern women, there is no deficiency in their mind, since some are even smarter than men to have the access to universities for their further studies. 
    As hadith links inequality of treatments to their deficiency of mind instead of to Allah's command, it implies the inequality of treatments as mentioned in Quran and hadith is no longer applicable to this modern world, since modern women, who are more educated, are no longer to be in deficiency of mind.  Thus, it is rational to treat women fairly regardless what is mentioned in Quran and Hadith about them.
    The extract below permits women to rule over the people and these include to rule over men:
    An-Naml (The Ants) - 27:23  [read in context]
    إِنِّي وَجَدتُّ امْرَأَةً تَمْلِكُهُمْ وَأُوتِيَتْ مِن كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَلَهَا عَرْشٌ عَظِيمٌ (27:23)
    Basit -   Hussari -   Minshawi -  f
    Innee wajadtu imraatan tamlikuhum waootiyat min kulli shayin walaha AAarshun AAatheemun
    Topics discussed in this Verse:
    [Balqis] [Hoopoe] [Saba] [Solomon:and Bilqis]
    “Behold, I found there a woman ruling over them; and she has been given [abundance] of all [good] things, and hers is a mighty throne, - 27:23 (Asad) - 
    The only possible reason to explain why this woman was allowed to rule over the nation was her mind was not deficient, as mentioned in the hadith above.  As this woman was intellectual without deficiency in mind, she was allowed by Allah to rule over nation and this includes men too.
    By right, according to Quran and hadith, this woman had no right to rule and she had to be subject to her husband without freedom and she would be treated unequally as the rest of the women.  As hadith mentions the reason for treating women in the past secondly was due to their deficiency of mind instead of it was Allah's command, it is rational for Quran to mention this woman has been treated specially, since probably she was educated and turned up she was given with power to rule.
    Nevertheless, modern women should not be treated unfairly since they are more educated and no longer to be deficient in their mind.
