Gender Equity in Islam|
By Jamal Badawi
Alhamdu Lillahi wassalatu wassalamu ala Rasooli Allahi wa ala Alihi wa Sahbihi wa man walalah.
The Islamic perspective on the issue is the least understood and most misrepresented by non-Muslims and, at times, by some Muslims as well. The predominant local cultural practices in different parts of the world and the actions of some Muslims tend to reinforce erroneous perceptions of the Islamic perspective. These problems are enhanced by the tendency to treat some juristic interpretations as if they were identical with Islam.
The author wishes to express his gratitude to all reviewers of the manuscript, especially Dr. Ahmad Zaki Hammad, who made several thoughtful comments. Any shortcoming or error is mine, and I seek both forgiveness and correction.
As a reader, your comments, criticisms and suggestions are appreciated and encouraged. Let us all engage in a collective search for truth, guided by the revelatory sources of Islam, the Quran and Sunnah.
