Mr. Mustapha. Let me explain the meaning of 1Corinthians 14:34 for you. Women are not permitted to give sermons nor are they permitted to ask questions or debate with the pastor delivering a sermon. Women are however permitted to speak before and after the sermon equally as are men. I have attended many Christian services and have heard the explanation of this scripture and I've certainly heard men and women conversing before and after the sermon is presented. Now are Muslim women permitted to speak during your services and are they permitted to preach?
