Do not be so sweet
That people will eat you up.
Nor so bitter that
They will spit you out.
In 21st century Islam, a woman cannot have any place in politics. In the Islam of Muhammad (saww), a woman was an ambassador in politics. When he takes her to the event of Mubahila, why doesn’t he say, ‘A woman cannot be involved in politics because she’s not mahram to the men. A woman cannot be in politics because politics are only for men. A woman cannot be in politics because she has to have hijab.’ So why take Fatima (sa) to meet Christians? If a woman is meant to be at home, keep Fatima (sa) at home. A woman has as much role in building your community as a man.
And unless a woman is involved in at least participating in building a community, an Islamic community will never be built."
