Being a feminist and a muslim at the same time is question that starts to being asked and making people opening new conversations of an other level.
Here, it’s Islam we are talking about, and the stories and history I heard about it say that Islam came to gave women all their rights of having a respectful life and getting her away from men’s rules which are neglecting and making her passive.
Islam was the new era when the new births, girls, were being barry once she comes to life, why? Because getting a girl not a boy is an embarrassing for a man and it’s touching it’s dignity and honor. Islam came when the women doesn’t have the right to go out, learn, fight or even being independent, an a change maker, because there are lot of stories of women who fought with the prophet in important battles, teaching and and producing for their communities.
As we all know, women, the in the Arab world, have been suffering from neglection of being creative in their communities and societies, that’s why, to get their rights and being productive, women created the feminist movement which is basically based on creating associations and organizations, set goals and methods to conduct the changes they are believing in and getting positions.
This movement got birth at a certain time when a woman’s right of education, work, and ability to be a change maker has been taken from her while she has all the right to make decisions how, when and where she wants to.
Women’s movement actually have lost people’s trust these days because of rumors that say that they are looking for getting freedom of the religion, in a society that has all the trust in the religion and considers it the reference in case of any confusion about anything, so when you come and say that the women has the right to do whatever she wants to especially without getting a permission to people who don’t have a such thinking, how do you suppose to being trustworthy when you are saying and trying to convince with unexisted ideas in their lives and minds.
Personally, I do not consider me as a feminist,
