You’re out there somewhere. I take some comfort knowing we look at the same sky every now and then. I wonder if, by any chance we look up at the sky together. Maybe, in some way, that’s why I feel some type of peace looking into the vast emptiness in the distance.
Muslim feminist? There is no such thing as feminist in islam tbh its male dominant religion.
A few rights given to women in Islam, a good 1,400+ years ago, when women were viewed as completely subservient to men, and people practiced female infanticide:
Owning, Managing, and Maintaining Property
Custody of Children
Access to Education
Choice of Spouse
Keeping One’s Maiden Name After Marriage
Equal Participation in the Political Process
The United Nations granted women these rights in the Declaration of Human Rights. In 1948. When many countries still had not given women the right to vote. In fact, over a thousand years after the death of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), in 1586, French Catholics were still debating whether or not women possessed souls.
I’m so sick and tired of people who don’t practice Islam telling me about my religion. You really think millions of women have been coerced into believing in a tradition that views them as subservient? Get real.
