What would you guys say to this girl?
Something like "Welcome to Islam, but now you have to sell your motorcycle because you are not allowed to use a saddle"? 
Or some of you would maybe like to build a howdah to go on top of her motorcycle?

It sounds like you're trying too hard to justify the rulings of the maraji. No offense.

Salam it depends on time for beginning her fans will admire her for converting to Islam but after a while some extremist users will start ordering her to doing such & such  after her honeymoon Time after converting  based on their radical ideology  but our posts about public presences in places that men can watch women body on bicycle or etc also she is traveling In Deserts & mountainous roads not cities anyway you can find that single tourist women with bike or bicycle passed through Iran without facing any problem but they still follow public code in every city.

Do you really think that a Muslim woman would wear these narrow fitting Tour d´France bicycling outfits? I don't go swimming in a bikini. I wear a modest swimsuit when swimming. Why would it be different when bicycling?

Is bicycling about conquering the world? I drive the bicycle for three reasons. 1. as a means of transportation. 2. for fitness so that I will not get overweight, and 3. as leisure. I like cycling in the woods listening to the birds and watching the nature.

I do not live in a palace in Dubai so I don't have thousand square meter to cycle around on inside my apartment. I only have 71 m2, so there wouldn't be much room til drive on.

First salam. No I was explaining the scenario started from there. Haven't seen swim suit of Muslim women if certain parts are tight or not. As I said I really do not care if the outer appearance is this or that, than I moved to the act and than if that act is suitable for women and Akhlaqi values. So I want to drag siblings attention to this categori also, so we discuss it from this perspective also[again]. This perspective has also been neglected in Farsi forums and talked little about. Have taken this subject lightly and somehow 'rite humoristically and tried not to put jokes out of respect to sister discussers.

Maybe women think men are outside and conquering the world and they are missing something. Are these means of yours necassary to do, there is taxis and buses and husband or father or brother around to drive and one can sit in the car and chill or herself drive if she has license so its not a big deal to just use bicycle. The overweight can also be solved through various means again bicycle is not the only solution. Here I would like to make a remembrance about عفة and the ahadith I put previously.

The third is a very quality thing to do hearing the various sounds in nature with different melodies beats any classic music and after a quarter of Holy Qur'an would certainly create a healthy composition of worldly and heavenly sounds. I mean doing one of them is okay but interconnecting the material and spiritual pleasure that is in harmonious with each other; it feels one is alive and feel life, mostly we do not feel that we are alive and jumping around in life let alone see things around us having life and joy and is full of beauty. But isn't bicycle with speed compared to walking; know girls can do two things at the same time but still one may not be in a position to whole heartedly focus and concentrate on sounds specially birds but there is wind, movement of leafs and so on.

Just want to say by creating a balance and moderation the nafs grows because in reality in needs to consume from both sides. What is our goal of different acts we do, what was the goal of Ahl al Bait Peace Upon Them.

Based on certain field of knowledge I said that not randomly to prove something, happy that you read so in detail and anything that bothers you; you mention it, its nice challenge always keep it up. The 1000 thingy is based on Islamic Architecture as building cities based on Islamic models are different than west. I brought that for other purpose and vision not that you should cycle in apartments...!

Salam, I would tell her we don’t need more Muslims quantity wise if you want to be a Muslim be quality type and fulfill your duty towards Islam not part of it you like and wear proper hijab. She is a Muslim by saying shadah but many sisters here are momenin they can't be compared.

She passed Iran also if am not wrong but still the police tried to help in the road trip and escorted her when she was going in desert road and she felt it was weird if am not wrong because she is from a culture that men do not care about their woman mostly and in majority. She was alien to our culture and did not know anything and just liked riding the thing!

Not so long ago I saw in a spot on Press TV that an increasing number of Iranian women had taken up the Sport of Horseback Archery like the ancient Indo-Iranian nomads of the pontic steppe:

image.jpeg.07d6d23d956164cab72daed9dd696aa4.jpeg

As you see in this picture arms are seen is it okay; her hair is seen and look back of her head; weird why go after so much unnecessary difficulty. Her jeans also by the way. [Where is her wali; father or husband; now all women in Islam have wali, do women accept it or not; this is absurd and unacceptable we should make a topic on this important subject!] Now the thing she is wearing its short but still close; some may not understand and open it and 'cycle in even Iran and try secular mindset not being a momena that has researced and understood her religion. In Iran a woman went and got motorcycle license just because there was no law the police gave her the license so easy; its basically not an issue but certainly that woman will not observe proper hijab for momenin its wajib to do amr be maruf and nahy an'l monkar. So far I havent seen a practical outfit for women riding bicycle.

Salam, no exaggeration at all. How can it not be true. All acts goes under 3-5 categories and has spiritual value that includes even lifting a finger; and one will be questioned about it in judgement because you certainly had an intention when doing it. The spiritual world does not have one God and material world another everything is unitedly connnected and synced. Now casually said: In this world IT giants want cloud technology and interconnectional abilities, do you thing Allah creation is deficit. A creation ex. Human is in need of 1000s or unlimited of other creations of God that in turn are نعمة of God in turn are sign -اية- of God. So there is Hikmat [philosophy] behind it; that certainly you can get lot of clues in other topics.

No, not at all specially if you get to know me more; it has to do with women 'cycling and does not affect me directly. I really don’t care but most people see these kind of threads a deadend, like there is nothing to discuss about and boring because we have maybe not much writing material in ahadith and so on; but not me, like to explore the topic capability and artistic imagination of siblings for solving it and maybe having a practical solution for future eras to come so future generation do not need to discuss it and put their time on it. [so best we discuss it like a baby now and pinpoint everything]. Sisters may think they have the house a few meters and we have the globe maybe its like this so am bringing forward and sharing my hypoteses or theoritical mindset and bringing forward explanation for new reflection patterns not the classic women 100% home and men 100% out on the globe. So we have to work on details that is in between. Talk about the issue of space and time and duties and perfection.

I truely want us all think why in western societies all women think, going outside like men so much both days wise and hour wise okay. Is it akher zaman; how would the idea of men being inside the house more days and hours is it healthy pattern these situations for humans in general and Muslims in particular.

We have fitra right; so woman based on fitra should be in the house more often and not feel weird or difficulty in this issue because her organic and natural existence is like this am I missing something here, am I saying something alien! Now these decisions affect akhlaq virtues and vices aql and jahl..

Lastly you know about that some boys act like girls and vs versa I don’t want to discuss the issue just bringing forward the historical background and certainly its more than just being based on akhlaq and may God help them and so no one thinks thats what am discussing here. Now healthy men specially Muslims are not allowed to wear women clothes or vs versa right, we have even jurisprudential laws; why men have to have beard, for how long are we going to take these natural/organic laws separated and act and not think greater. Now my question is, can men have female virtues in stronger shape and proportion in oneself, is it allowed; some may say oh this men is slightly genetical tendency while its not it. Oh maybe it is as Imam Ali had a son who was not brave in battlefield the Imam said to 'Abu hanifay' that this you have got from your mother; so there could genetic be but still he was normal guy so no misunderstanding occurs. So the same way some acts are for us brothers and some other acts for our sisters. If I do sister acts and sit home much, automatically I develop in myself women virtues. And so on so forth please criticize so I can explain better.

Thanks for your response. Do you know any evidence or narrations that talk about women’s fitrah relating to staying in the home more often?

lenghty ready, a drop in the ocean of reality. might be lucky if the admins allow this many posts have not gone through. Must be the corona virus....

This is a very simple subject, however it is complex it terms of explanation as it requires evidence to explain that I do have but need to quote.......

I would not, as I believe everyone has the right to earn their living in a fair way. There are women who need to earn to support their existence and self reliance is a method where one does not have to submit to another author. The ancients in all parts of the world were slave owners and this idea of owner ship mixed in with the so called command of God. I doubt a rational God would accept that his creation to become slaves or servants of others and then claim a DOJ. That would automatically allow the slave to go to heaven as their rights were never fullfiled as a free person. Because a slave has no rights of office or comfort, or leisure. The whole objective of human existence was to co-exist equally with different tasks but a fair way of living. No system as fullfilled this role yet.

Generally most people and thiests included are uneducated or ignorantly conditioned. They think God commanded something but yet the same very individuals if placed in a prision go crazy, but assume a prison for someone else is ethical and would not have psychological disturbance. Apparently sitting in house all day, cleaning, begging for money from the husband or wife, being commanded by another HUMAN with self interests is virtuous.... They rather not clean that dirty toilet or bathroom themselves, as it is menial and degrading so why not ask another do it. That way we can feel above the other or special and claim ohh it is the will of the Gods and it is a sign of being humble!. Then do it thou self and become humble?. so we observe that gender roles were depended on the type of work that was undertaken. The slaves which include women/men/enuuchs/children did the dirty jobs or work that was degrading. This is why nations went to war, to conquer, to take and to assign duties.

The narrations regarding women staying at home is based on classical antiquity and beyond but also depended on the culture, tribe and region. This is not just observed in the Abrahamic religions, but it was observed in almost all parts of the Earth, but it also varied. Now the problem with theists is that they like to associate it to the command of God. However most of religion is not the command of God but the command of men/women, rather the opinion of idiom of culture that was mixed in with religion. If one were to use reason we can clearly see the fallacy of many religious laws and commandments as they go beyond logic. But they are appealing due to a form of hierarchical balance they portray.

below are Excerpts but not the whole, can be taken out of context by lazy corrupt humans

Consider that gender roles is based on the functioning of the state.

the treatment or management of slaves is a troublesome affair; for, if not kept in hand, they are insolent, and think that they are as good as their masters, and, if harshly treated, they hate and conspire against them. Now it is clear that when these are the results the citizens of a state have not found out the secret of managing their subject population.

Below is about behavior of women in one state.

therefore, in those states in which the condition of the women is bad, half the city may be regarded as having no laws. And this is what has actually happened at Sparta; the legislator wanted to make the whole state hardy and temperate, and he has carried out his intention in the case of the men, but he has neglected the women, who live in every sort of intemperance and luxury. The consequence is that in such a state wealth is too highly valued, especially if the citizen fall under the dominion of their wives.

This was exemplified among the Spartans in the days of their greatness; many things were managed by their women. But what difference does it make whether women rule,
or the rulers are ruled by women? The result is the same. Even in regard to courage, which is of no use in daily life, and is needed only in war, the influence of the Lacedaemonian women has been most mischievous. The evil showed itself in the Theban invasion, when,
unlike the women other cities, they were utterly useless and caused more confusion than the enemy.

therefore almost all things rule and are ruled according to nature. But the kind of rule differs; the freeman rules over the slave after another manner from
that in which the male rules over the female, or the man over the child; although the parts of the soul are present in an of them, they are present in different degrees. For the slave has no deliberative faculty at all; the woman has, but it is without authority, and the child has, but it is immature. So it must necessarily be supposed to be with the moral virtues also; all should partake of them, but only in such manner and degree as is required by each for the fulfillment of his duty. Hence the ruler ought to have moral virtue in perfection, for his function, taken absolutely, demands a master artificer, and rational principle is such an artificer; the subjects, oil the other hand, require only that measure of virtue which is proper to eachof them. Clearly, then, moral virtue belongs to all of them; but the temperance of a man and of a woman, or the courage and justice of a man and of a woman, are not, as Socrates maintained, the same; the courage of a man is shown in commanding, of a woman in obeying. And this holds of all other virtues, as will be more clearly seen if we
look at them in detail, for those who say generally that virtue consists in a good disposition of the soul, or in doing rightly, or the like, only deceive themselves. Far better than such definitions is their mode of speaking, who, like Gorgias, enumerate the virtues. All classes must be deemed to have their special attributes; as the poet says of women,

"Silence is a woman's glory, "

inasmuch as every family is a part of a state, and these relationships are the parts of a family, and the virtue of the part must have regard to the virtue of the whole, women and children must be trained by education with an eye to the constitution, if the virtues of either of them are supposed to make any difference in the virtues of the state. And they must make a difference: for the children grow up to be citizens, and half the free persons in a state are women.

Again, if Socrates makes the women common, and retains private property, the men will see to the fields, but who will see to the house? And who will do so if the agricultural class have both their property and their wives in common? Once more: it is absurd to argue, from the analogy of the animals, that men and women should follow the same pursuits, for animals have not to manage a household.

I am not justifying the acts but I like to point of irrational predictive flaws that claim The part in red did not exist prior or present in that timeline. This narrations sounds fabricated considering that .....

Salaam alaykum,

I don't see what the huge fuss about it is. Riding a horse, mule, camel, motorbike etc include the act of straddling something, which can be see as immodest in the sense that it exposes the details and contours of a female shape. For instance, walking or sitting in a car or taking a bus, or even a howda or rickshaw for that matter to do not expose the mathematical details and measurements of a womans proportions. straddling something does. I remember going to a beach once and a woman I know straddled a camel there (they are usually available at the beach for a touristy ride and pictures).. and even as a female, I remember noting at the back of my mind that hmm.. I did not know before that person x has xyz proportions. The detailed shape of a woman is part of the awrah of a woman, and should not be exposed if she is to maintain her physical and social hijab. 

There are also other reasons why straddling something is public can be considered immodest, but I think most adults can figure that for themselves.

Thanks for your response. Do you know any evidence or narrations that talk about women’s fitrah relating to staying in the home more often?

Salam, I do not clearly get what you are saying, am guessing you want the word fitra in hadith and say stay at home; this I do not think specifically exist and have searched also based on my capability maybe others find. The word fitra and ahadith on it is usually based on other kinds of atmospheres. But there is lots of ahadith that has to do with womens duties in the house and rewards. So if a woman unnecessarily do men duties she will not get the reward has gone against sharia and not grown in akhlaq perspective and has deficit aqaed that she should correct her aqaed and understand the wisdom behind the Islamic laws so she can willing and better understand herself as a 'human woman' to be able to perfect and take care of herself spiritually and obey the sharia law.

Ahadith on taking care of herself; husband and the house. Ahadith on taking care and nurturing and educating children and all the rewards in all this are mentioned. And moreover sunnah of Prophet Mohammed(S) & Imams Peace Upon Them. Their wives 'ever worked and so on and went out as much as todays women! A woman can never properly in calmness worship God and enjoy if she is out daily; may get lots of qaza or not being able to pray on time. A woman outside can not do honestly and rightly all the above if she is regularly on daily bases hours out.

الإمامُ الصّادقُ عليه السلام: إنّما علَينا أنْ نُلْقيَ إلَيكُمُ الاُصولَ ، و علَيكُم أنْ تُفَرِّعوا
امام صادق عليه السلام: ما وظيفه داريم اصول را براى شما بگوييم و شما موظفيد فروع را از آنها استخراج كنيد
ميزان الحكمه جلد دوّم؛ محمّد محمّدی ری شهری، صفحه 524

Imam Sadiq(A); We have duty to say principals to you people and you people have duty to extract subsidiary; additional from...

This hadith is for, to say beside Holy Qur'an & Ahadith there is aql also; in fiqh when a Marja extract laws its a kind of production of knowledge that we can use in our life; they are good in logic & Hikmat and Usul Fiqh. Dear brother any field of knowledge for their growth needs to be developed and born from scratch. And to make it grow there is principals or a seed for it. First batihiyat than theoritical and than practical/experimental science. Excuse these are out of subject of this topic just want to say aql is important and one needs to read about it.

در احادیث، خدمت زن و مرد جهاد محسوب شده است با این تفاوت که امام علی (ع) فرمود: جهاد المرئة حسنُ التبعّل[1]؛
جهاد زن خوب شوهر داری کردن است
كافى، ج 5، ص 9

امام صادق (ع) فرمود: الْکادُّ علی عیاله کالمجهاد فی سبیل اللّه
تلاشگر برای خانواده همچون جهادگر در راه خداست
كافى، ج 5، ص 88

Translation: In narrations duties of women & men are considered Jihad with this difference Imam Ali Peace Upon Him said; "The Jihad of woman is to take care of her husband well." Second hadith, Imam Sadiq Peace Upon Him said; "The one that endeavours in path of family, is like mujahid[the one doing jihad in path of God]".

In these two narrations you see their jihad is in harmony with each other but if men go out in actual jihad the womens jihad respectively there is to be home and take care of that place and the husband in general(other hadith). So Jihad is wajib on both but based on their way of perfection different kind of jihad. We can’t say or women can’t say jihad is not wajib upon us we sit home and chill! So both gets reward and has proper means to get them.

But here I have something else; surprise maybe for some so if this is the case than no excuse that naturally its recommended, women should be at home for the growth of a healthy society and respectively men outside. Is there greater case than this that women should be at home for even ibadah/worship of God I mean what is more important than this.

Trying to come back on subject: So from essence/zatan the act of riding 'cycles around is questionable for a momena a Muslim Woman. So this and the reality of the act should be discussed first before we discuss what cloths there should be while doing the act. What sawab/reward there is for women in this act unless its truely necessary.

صلاةُ الْمرأةِ وَحْدَها فی بَیْتِها کفَضْلِ صَلاتِها فیالْجَمْعِ خَمْسا وَ عشرین درجةً
به تنهایی و درخانه نماز خواندن زن، مثل نماز در جمع است در حالی که 25 درجه فضیلت دارد
وسائل الشیعه ج5، ص237، ح6435؛ بحارالانوار ج80، ص371، ح31

باز از آن حضرت است: إنَّ مَساجِدَ الِّنساء البیوتُ، وَ صلاةُ الْمَرأةِ فی بَیْتِها أفْضَلُ مِنْ صَلاتِها وَ صُفَّتها وَ صلاتُها فی صُفّتها أفْضَلُ مِنْ صَلاتِها فی صَحْنِ دارِها وَ صلاتُها فی صَحْنِ دارِها أفْضَلُ مِنْ صَلاتِها فی سَطْحِ بَیْتِها
بهترین مسجد زنان خانه است؛ و نماز در خانه برتر از نماز او در ایوان است؛ و نماز او در ایوان برتر از نمازش در حیاط خانه اش است؛ و نماز او در حیاط خانه برتر از نمازش برپشت بام خانه است
من لا یحضره الفقیه ج1، ص374، ح1088

امام صادق(ع) در این باره نیز فرمود: خَیْرُ مَساجِدِ نِسائِکُمْ الْبُیوتُ
بهترین مساجد برای زنان شما خانه ها است
وسائل الشیعه ج5، ص237، ح6432 و 6434؛ من لا یحضره الفقیه ج1، ص238، ح718؛ بحارالانوار ج80، ص371، ح32

همچنین امام صادق(ع) فرمود: صَلاة الْمَرأةِ فی مَخْدِعِهَا أفْضلُ مِنْ صَلاتِها فی بَیْتِها وَ صلاتُها فی بِیْتِها أفْضَلُ مِنْ صلاتِها فیالدّارِ
نماز زن در اطاق عقبی(پستو) برتر از نماز او در اطاق جلویی است و نماز او در اطاق نشیمن برتر از نمازش در خانه اش است
وسائل ج5، ص236، ح6431؛ من لا یحضره الفقیه ج1، ص397، ح1179

ام سلمه از قول رسول خدا(ص) می گوید: خَیْرُ مَساجِدِ النِّساءِ قَعْرُ بُیُوتِهِنَّ
بهترین مساجد برای زنان اطاقهای عقب خانه های آنان است
اعلام الساجد بأحکام المساجد، ص309

رسول خدا(ص) به حضرت علی(ع)فرمود: یا علیّ! لَیْسَ عَلَی النِّساءِ جُمْعَةٌ وَ لا جَماعَةٌ وَ لا أذانٌ وَ لا إقامةٌ
ای علی! برای زنان نماز جمعه و جماعت و اذان و اقامه نیست
بحارالانوار ج85، ص12

This hadith is also something for sure considerable to understand essentially men and women.

۵۷۴۴.الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام : خِيارُ خِصالِ النِّساءِ شِرارُ خِصالِ الرِّجالِ : الزَّهوُ ، والجُبنُ ، والبُخلُ ؛ فإذا كانتِ المَرأةُ مَزهُوَّةً لَم تُمَكِّنْ مِن نَفسِها ، وإذا كانت بَخيلَةً حَفِظَت مالَها ومالَ بَعلِها ، وإذا كانت جَبانَةً فَرِقَت مِن كُلِّ شَي‏ءٍ يَعرِضُ لَها .۱

۵۷۴۴.Imam Ali (عليه السلام) said, 'The good characteristics of women are the bad characteristics of men: pride, cowardice and stinginess. If a woman has pride she will not allow herself to be taken advantage of; if she is stingy she will guard her wealth and her spouse's wealth; and if she is cowardly she will be cautious of everything that confronts her.' ۲

Imam Khomeini said that if women knew how men think they would dress in Iron. or Iron armor or Iron clothing, I am not sure.

If you would be using it in public I will give you the advise never to do such a thing.

Even if you have wide clothing the seat of the bycle etc. will give too much vision of the body.

The men have to be of strong faith and wisdom to not look at this. Most men are not and therefor most of them will look, and with sexual thoughts etc.

If someone wants just a answer to a Fiqh or Jurispudence question, ask your Marja's office or look on their website, etc.

Salam Alaykum

According to Ayt. Khamenei's view: riding a bike in the public is not permissible since it draws man's attention and other probable problems.

Nevertheless by the time riding a bike by women in Iranian community is usual and is not prohibited legally.

But regardless of its ruling I wanted to mention a narration in which A'isha is censured and dispraised for her being the first woman in Islam who rode . The following narration is quoted from the great book of Al-kafi (because the hadith is long I just quoted a part of it): 

فَلَمَّا أُوقِفَ عَلَى قَبْرِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص ذَهَبَ ذُو الْعُوَيْنَيْنِ إِلَى عَائِشَةَ فَقَالَ لَهَا إِنَّهُمْ قَدْ أَقْبَلُوا بِالْحَسَنِ لِيَدْفِنُوا مَعَ النَّبِيِّ ص فَخَرَجَتْ مُبَادِرَةً عَلَى بَغْلٍ بِسَرْجٍ فَكَانَتْ أَوَّلَ امْرَأَةٍ رَكِبَتْ فِي الْإِسْلَامِ سَرْجاً فَقَالَتْ نَحُّوا ابْنَكُمْ عَنْ بَيْتِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يُدْفَنُ فِي بَيْتِي

 (The procession) paused near the grave of the Messenger of Allah. At this time Dhul‘Aynayn (spy) went to A’isha and told her, ‘They have brought al-Hassan’s body to bury near the Holy Prophet’s grave.’ She then came out quickly on the mule with saddle.
