I disagree completely

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law

Submitted by Mohamed (Australia), Mar 20, 2008 at 02:52

I disagree with the introductory arguments stating "one that oppresses women and turns non-Muslims into second-class citizens?" The draft constitution whose creed eminates from Allah (swt) for the ideal islamic state that will liberate humanity states

Article 6

All citizens of the State shall be treated equally regardless of religion, race, colour or any other matter. The State is forbidden to discriminate among its citizens in all matters, be it ruling or judicial, or caring of affairs.

With regards to the status of women in Islam, it was islam which liberated the women in society in every single aspect. The Women in islam enjoy rights otherwise not heard of in a christain/ secularist society. for example, women in the past were not allowed to vote, drive and even divorse their husbands.It wasnt until the 60s that germany ambolished this ruling. Women in islam are reguared as the structural piers on which society functions. They are equal in the eyes of Allah (swt). The prophet Muhammad (pbup) said: the best among you are those best to their wifes".

theses are mere examples that illustrate islams superioty over all idiologies that exsist. please email me for any quiries or misconceptions that ones to be clarified. melz2008@usyd.edu.au
