Feminism & Shia muslims

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

There's a lot of opinions out there from all sorts of sects and people on feminism. I was wandering what shia muslims think of femism. And before anyone starts talking about modern day feminism and how it's going for the extension of men, I mean real femisim. Feminism is defined as equality of the two sexes. In light of this definition, what are your opinions of feminism?

They cannot be equal. Women do have a lot of rights, but not equal rights.

Do you mean in terms of men and women not being treated equally or that they don't have the same abilities??

They don't have same rights. Islam gave women a lot of right for instance divorce, inheritance, but they don't get equal share.

Both men and women are equal but they have different responsibilties and values. There is no competition between men and women. Men have to compete with men and women with women. Relationship of man and woman is the greatest blessing of Allah, both compliment each other but they shouldn't compete with eachother. This is a first relation Allah created on earth, Bibi Hawa (SA) and Adam (A.S) and this will be the only relation of a man and a woman which will last in heaven. Islam wants to give dignity and respect to women but today on the name of freedom women wants to expose herself to world. Women has the every right to contribute in the society and participate in worldly activities but she has to keep her modesty. Imam Ali (A.S) says, "A stupid women wants to make her husband to be her salve, and she becomes a wife of a salve. But an intelligent women makes her husband a king and becomes a wife of a king." 

Islam wants men to protect women, but unfortunately he tries to dominate her to prove how manly he is.They have to be kind to her as they are like a tender flower not a salve in house.

Imam Hassan (A.S) and Imam Hussain (A.S) are master of Paradise, and paradise is under the feet of a mother and their mother is Bibi Fatima tuz Zahra (S.A). This is how elivated status of women in Islam, if one understands . Allah wants to protect and give protocol to women but unfortunately today dajjali culture of west has influenced men and women both, majority men don't give respect and rights to women which islam has allowed, and majortity women have left her dignity and haya.

May Allah protect followers of Bibi Fatima tuz Zahra (SA) and Imam Ali (A.S), may Allah give us the ability to follow them, the way They (A.S) want.
