Research: 8000 Female Hadith Scholars


Mike Ghouse

This is an interesting development. Most of the opposition to this will come from a small, very small, tiny, weeny group of insecure Muslim men (make no mistake about it, it is not just Muslim men, all little men act like that ). Men who need to grow up and accept that whether male or female, child or senior, all are fully capable of dealing everything about Deen and Duniya.

The only superiority one can achieve is, how humble one is and how much good one does to Allah's whole creation. It is the Taqwa. It is ironic and paradoxical, that the exalted one is the most humble one.

Is there a need to feel superior? Absolutely not. Every ritual in Islam is geared to make us think and feel equal and most importantly humble. Arrogance and spirituality are inversely proportional to each other. Meaning - higher the arrogance, lower the Taqwa, lower the arrogance, higher degree of Taqwa.

Indeed, God is an equal opportunity creator, he has created a binary world, world of action and reaction. There are hundreds of verses where the opposites are mentioned equal number of times. Balance is the ultimate goal, for us Muslims through the concepts of Justice, Fasting, Salat and Zakat we can strive for that elusive balance. When there is justice, just nations, just businesses, just relationships, just economies and just laws, every one in the society will progress. This is not communism, where equality is forced, it is accomplished through choice and free will. One may want to be a millionaire and others may just want to earn a little and live a life, that is their choice, nothing superior or inferior about it, as long as Just means are employed to get there.

Our community, whether Muslim or not, can uplift itself by absorbing the essence of Islam - that of Justness. We should take away all the un-wanted barriers for every individual from desiring to contribute towards the overall development of the community. If we cannot encourage the strivers, we should learn to shut up.

Speak up! silent no more.

8,000 of women Hadis-scholars for 1,400 years makes 5/6 per year each year continuously for 1400 years on the average. Hard to believe such number unless hard work is dedicated to find every insignificant women with microscope over 1/4 of the globe in the messy history of 1400 years of genocides, revolutions, counter-revolutions, assassinations, rebellings and killings. Suppose the number is true. So what? All 8000 women scholars had no impact on the hundreds of terribly anti-women Hadises and patriarchal interpretation of Islam. Each of them were subjected to Sharia Laws of (1) possibility of being beaten, (2) possibility of co-wives, (3) half witness, (4) half inheritance, (5) no witness in Hudud cases, (6) not to be judges in Hudud cases and so on. NOTE:- THERE IS NOT A SINGLE WOMEN SHARIA IMAM IN MUSLIM HISTORY. THAT IS MORE IMPORTANT. Recent effort of glorifying Women-Hadis scholars is an eye-wash to take your eyes off the anti-women nature of Sharia laws. See bellow, I quoted only 42 such evils. Lest we forget it is not advice but laws that makes or breaks life.
