Reader comment on item: Muslim Hours at Municipal Swimming Pools in the West
in response to reader comment: Learn from Islam

Submitted by Lifeguard (United States), Aug 8, 2009 at 00:05

Hello, Muslim Lady. It was interestig to see your comment about respecting boundaries ... Is that in Islam? If so, can you quote Hadith or Sura? It does seem true, but I cannot find a reference to it. So, please share it if you know. Otherwise, if anecdotal rather than in writing, please explain.

On the wistfullness about no female USA president, I agree, it would be interesting if history pointed to an elected female US president. But let me ask, why so important a notion? Saudi Arabia hasn't had a female leader since the days of Aisha. Are you wistful about that?

I would be delighted to explore the depths of your concerns. SOmetime soon, ok?>
