Ignorant Fatwa Watch: Darul Uloom Deoband’s Fatwa Against Women Working

In Faith & Religion, India on May 11, 2010 at 7:25 pm

“It is unlawful (under the Sharia law) for Muslim women to work in the government or private sector where men and women work together and women have to talk with men frankly and without a veil,” said the fatwa issued by a bench of three clerics. The decree was issued over the weekend, but became public late on Monday, seminary sources said. (full post at TOI)

You can’t reason with ignorance. But in the one in a trillion chance that these clerics see our blog, we’re going to give it a try. Starting with introducing them to Queen Rania, Sania Mirza, Baroness Saeeda Warsi, Irshad Manji, Mukhtar Mai, (and the list goes on and on) of amazing women who happen to be Muslim and have made incredible contributions to our society.

  1. Dear Readers, As Salamu Alaikum,
    Learned Ulama are Religious people who donot invent anything themselves but quote from Islamic Hadis.
    Its very true that mingling freely without outwardly & inwarldly
    protection is against the Principle of Islam. My family is modern family ,I ask our children to livin the boundary of Islam & ask the forgivess of ALLAH SWT when we go astray from Islamic habits.
    ALLAH curse those who are against the Ulama of Islam who treuly guide us on the basis of Holy Quran & Hadis.
    The success of these world is not success of the grave or day of Judgment. Thank You. Independent Thinker.
