Abstract

In total indifference to the pronounced diversity among Muslim women and the universality of discrimination against women, Islam is often perceived as the religion of the oppression of women, par excellence. This creates a relentless determination to liberate Muslim women who, without exception, suffer from a tyrannical religion. And such liberation can be realized only through idealized Western pathways! The position of women in Islam can be best understood through multiples lenses, including the prevailing sociopolitical and economic realities in Muslim societies, and by going back to the original sources, the Qur’ān, and to a lesser degree, the hadīth, without losing sight of the relevant sociopolitical and cultural conditions of the time of revelation, seventh-century Arabia.
