thegreaterjihad:

A few rights given to women in Islam, a good 1,400+ years ago, when women were viewed as completely subservient to men, and people practiced female infanticide:

  • Inheritance
  • Divorce
  • Owning, Managing, and Maintaining Property
  • Custody of Children 
  • Access to Education
  • Choice of Spouse
  • Keeping One’s Maiden Name After Marriage 
  • Equal Participation in the Political Process 
  • Spiritual Equality

The United Nations granted women these rights in the Declaration of Human Rights. In 1948. When many countries still had not given women the right to vote. In fact, over a thousand years after the death of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), in 1586, French Catholics were still debating whether or not women possessed souls.

I’m so sick and tired of people who don’t practice Islam telling me about my religion. You really think millions of women have been coerced into believing in a tradition that views them as subservient? Get real.
