Dear Snakesavage,

How have you got this idea that muslim women can not contribute to the world. Can you indicate any Aya form Quran which does not allow them to become scientist, doctors or excell in any field. My own wife is MSC (Nuclear Physics) my daughter is becoming a medical doctor. There are thousands of muslim women who have done their PhDs from USA and Europe.

Islam gives equal rights to women to excel in any fields of life. Please correct your understanding about Isalm.
