Comment:Salaam. I commend you for you courage in tackling this issue, especially during your Friday Khutbah. I recall a similar furore within the muslim community in Capetown, South Africa, when a local imam permitted Prof. Amina Wadud from Virginia Commonwealth Univ, to deliver a post-khutbah lecture.

Comment:Excellent article. I agree that the Board of Directors should not just include women but even people born and raised in N.America.
The 'negative dawa' aspect is something I hadn't thought about until now. Let's get so involved in our masajid and community centers that we won't need to 'ask' for space, it'll be presented to us as our right for being an active part of our community.

Comment:I agree with the imam that the sisters space in masjids should be given due attention as far as comfort level is concerned but I totally disagree with removing the the partition. Being aware how some of our sisters dress and behave in the masjid it would give rise to lot of temptations and fitnah. The example of Prophet SAW time is relevant but there were strict rules that were followed by a generation of men and women far more pious and better than us. Lastly, I am sure the imam is aware of the what Aisha may Allah be pleased with her said when she commented on the women going to the mosque after the death of Prophet SAW. Jaza allahu Khairen and May Allah SWT guide us all to that what is good.

Comment:I seriously wonder how long it is before one of these mosques is hit with a gender-discrimination lawsuit. How embarrassing is THAT going to be? Shame on all who hinder women in the mosques.

Comment:As salamu alaikum!
This is a topic that needs to be discussed in every masjid. Unfortunately it is not. At least we have heard from you on this subject. I wonder who these men think will be present on the Last Day - just them? I certainly would not want to be questioned about keeping Muslims from the masjid. Aminah

|Something to Ask...|
|O Allah! |
I ask You by every name that You have, that You have called Yourself by, that You have taught any of Your Creation, that You have revealed in Your Book, or that You may have kept secret with Yourself.
Make the Quran the spring of my heart, the light of my breast, the dispeller of my sorrows, the eraser of my anxieties and worries.
