These days, inmore often than not, at whatever point we consider about Islam, we instantlypicture suicide bombing, jihad, terrorism, violent protests, and hidden ladiesin the Middle East. That implies we, unknowingly, have a feeling of negativesentiments towards the Islam community.
Particularly when we consider a Muslimlady, we quite often think they are the casualties who are experiencing genderdiscrimination, inequality and justice. In any case, when I was young, atwhatever point I found and met with Muslim female companions, every one of themare cheerful, inviting and serene thus I came to have questions about of genderdiscrimination inside the Muslim community. I attempt to make the examinationof gender inequality issues in the Islam community. As I would like to think,it is essential to think about another religion and culture appropriately,furthermore, we can influence wrong judgments on another religion and we toocan even make wrong allegation and disgraceful insults on them. When we trulywant to understand the entire circumstance as an unbiased analyst, we should beextremely cautious in criticizing another religion. When we investigate Qur’an,we can find that the fundamental premise of Qur’an is that women arespiritually and ethically equal to men. In a verse included in the Qur’an itstates “The Believers, men and women, are protectors, one of another: theyenjoin what is evil: they observe regular prayers, practice regular charity,and obey God and his apostle.” In most cases, it is particularly accepted thatgender equality has been available in western nations long time prior.
In anycase, it is critical to take note of that, until a hundred years ago, Western womenhad for all intents and purposes for no rights in law. It implies genderinequality has been set up for a significant amount of time in Muslimcommunity, as well as in a considerable amount of countries around the globe. Since I’m froman Islamic nation, Somalia has dependably been the nation I have to take inmore knowledge of, I have no beneficial involvement in Somalia therefor I cankeep a point of view of an anthropologist, I will be objective on whateverSomalia’s view on gender looks like to me. Somalia is viewed as the mostcorrupt nation on the planet, Somalia is partitioned into numerous tribes,there is just a single thing those tribes have in common, and that is theirview on Islam and their view on how women should live in Somalia, the women inSomalia are ideally expected to be the human in doors at all time, so far therehave been no women who have control over a tribe, women additionally must becompelled to marry a man, they don’t have anything to state to these laws,despite the fact that in the Quran it said that men and women are equal, theSomali individuals chose to move in the opposite direction of that reality. Thething that had astounded me was the point at which I discovered how men choosehow women should live, men transform women into killers since it is a sin for ahuman to slaughter another human. Not only does the greater part of the womenwho live in Somalia been raped, however the vast majority of the men who are asof now married tend to rape another man’s wife. The equality in gender inSomalia is an extremely far off target to accomplish at the moment, unless thenation economy reaches to the point where education and an appropriatelifestyle for each child is reasonable it could be feasible for the nationcreate and leave its corrupt side far from itself. When we lookedat the Quran, it became obvious that the Islam religion itself is not againstthe fact that every man and women are equal, this view changes depending on thecountry, whether its historical and economic factors, on top of that the Quranhas been interpreted by male scholars and for that reason it could be possiblefor the ideal equality for both men and women could be possible in any Islamiccommunity.
