Muslim Jurists Are Wrong, Husbands Cannot Beat Wives
T.O. Shanavas MD, New Age Islam

We, Muslims, must ask “Does anyone know a woman who spot ‘beauty and dignity’ in spousal brutality?”  Probably, Women suffering from the abnormal mental condition called masochism may find “beauty and dignity” in it.  There is no way to unmask the “beauty or dignity” in the jurists’ license of spousal abuse hinging on the verse.  There is not one incident in the life of Prophet (s) when he beat or treated disrespectfully any of his wives.  And if the Muslim’s claim of Islam being a liberator of women ought to be valid, Muslims must reject the jurists’ sanction of shameful act of wife beating by husbands.....

Arresting Feminists Doesn’t Inspire Faith in Saudi Arabia’s Much-Hyped Reform Agenda
Simon Henderson

His reforms were always likely to provoke opposition from within Saudi Arabia’s male-dominated, hierarchical society, which follows a strict interpretation of Islam. The apparent need to arrest women activists suggests that MbS is having to rethink his grand plans. In Saudi Arabia, MbS is sometimes likened to Saddam Hussein, the executed former dictator of Iraq. ...

‘Intersectional Feminism’ Proves That the Feminist Movement Is Often Exclusive and Largely White
Faima Bakar

Feminism often feels like it only accepts those who look like they subscribe to its ideals. Someone in a Burqa/Niqab isn’t seen as having agency therefore is pitied or only accepted if their fight is against the religious imposition. A Muslim woman who not only wears a headscarf, but a Burqa, a Niqab, and/or who has conservative views about sex and sexuality, is not usually accepted into feminist groups...

Islam’s religious values are separate from laws of countries, including views on women’s rights. In Islam, based on Ali’s interpretation of the Quran, freedom and respect are never rights denied to women.  She cites a verse in the holy book that says “it is not lawful for you to inherit women by compulsion. And do not make difficulties for them in order to take back part of what you gave them, unless they commit a clear immorality. And live with them in kindness.”...
