Women’s Rights in Islam

Women’s Rights by Shaykh Hassan Ali

I have never written anything on the topic of women in Islam. I have always wanted to take a Women’s Studies class and dedicate my final project on this topic. Alas, I did not have the opportunity.

The above link will take you to a page where you will find my favourite lecturer speaking about women’s rights. Shaykh Hassan Ali’s deliverance of the lecture is excellent. He speaks in an eloquent manner with a calm tone. Click on “Life in Islam Part 4: Women’s rights in Islam followed by the rights of husbands and wives“. The lecture is approximately 1 hour and 15mins long. For those of us who are history nuts, this lecture will illuminate a historical perspective – once you know the history, you’ll understand the present. From industrial Europe to pre-Islamic Arabia – from marriage rights to inheritance – it is all covered in this lecture. Moreover, the lecture does touch on the subject of polygamy and also the woman’s rights in a marriage.

Its great to know your rights in a marriage but for those of us who are single, click on “Life in Islam Part 3: How to find the most compatible person for marriage by analysing sixteen different personality type“. Now THIS is an interesting lecture!

Let me know what you think!
