but now basically we dont have an issue cos we have understanding and she does like to wear like i think and agree mostly (still we disagree in some points..)

all other points of yours i agree:

Terrorists should be treated as terrorist, but shouldnt be generalised..

Terror Acts and Killing innocent people in the name of fighting terror both should be Condemn same way...

well that is good! cuz i dont agree with any one person telling another how they can and cannot dress. its good that u both have an understanding and have come to an agreement.

i have big problems with how alot of women are treated in this world, and someone i once was close to told me somethingvery nasty when he would get mad at me he would say "oh u want to be a man blah blah blah" i say to that, no, but today women do and should have the same rights as a man. yeah he was a big fat joke, a little punk ass, who is violent and sexist an a womanizer and im glad that today i see that... which is another reason why i will always fight for wat i think is right and stand up when need be. this is the same guy who told me that if i was in sri lanka, he would take a hammer and crush all my fingers and then murder me and cut me into peices, and then kill my children and then kill himself..... a man who didint want to hear that i was in control of myself, but a man who wanted to be my leader, my GOD, my controller. hahaha. people like this is why i am the way i am.... im glad ur not that way, and that ur wife has the freedom and the opportunity to get a chance to have the experience of being a woman



MUAH love u all!!

Are Muslim women oppressed?


Among the many topics of interest to non-Muslims, the status of Muslim women and the theme of their rights -- or rather, the perceived lack of them – seems to be foremost. In fact, Islam condemns oppression of any kind whether it is towards a woman or humankind in general.

The Quran is the sacred book by which Muslims live. In chapter 33, entitled Soorah Al-Ahzaab (The Clans), verse 59 Allaah The Exalted Almighty Says (what means): "O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves (part) of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known (as free respectable women) and not be abused. And ever is Allaah Forgiving and Merciful." [Quran 33:59] This verse shows that Islam makes wearing a Hijaab necessary. Hijaab is the word used for covering, not only the headscarves (as some people may think) but also wearing loose clothes that are not too bright.

When Muslim women cover their hair and wear loose clothes, they are obeying the orders of their Lord to be modest, not cultural or social mores. The lives of the people who responded to the Quran have changed drastically. It had a tremendous impact on so many people, especially women, since this was the first time that the souls of man and women were declared equal -- with the same obligations as well as the same rewards.

For the first time in history, women were granted economic independence in Islam. The money they bring in to marriage is theirs as well as the money they earn. In Islam, women are allowed to choose their own husbands and in extreme cases, ask for divorce. A woman has the right to be educated, contrary to what the contemporary world might think. The responsibility is that of the person who is raising her. The Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wasallam, said: "Seeking knowledge is mandatory for every Muslim (male and female)." Men and women both have the capacity for learning and understanding. Since it is also their obligation to promote good behaviour and condemn bad behaviour in all spheres of life, Muslim women must acquire the appropriate education to perform this duty in accordance with their own natural talents and interests.

While maintenance of their homes, providing support to the husband and bearing, raising and teaching children are among the first and very highly regarded roles of a woman, if she has the skills to work outside the home for the good of the community, she may do so. However, this is allowed only as long as her family obligations are met and as long as she complies with the Islamic code of dress and conduct, with no intermingling with men in the workplace.

Islam recognizes and fosters the natural differences between men and women despite their equality. Some types of work are more suitable for men and other types for women. God will reward both genders equally for the value of their work, though it may not necessarily be within the same sphere of activity.

The two great roles a woman plays in life are that of a wife and a mother. The Prophet (Pbuh) , once said to a group of Companions (Pbuh): "The best among you are those who are the best to their wives." This shows that Islam highly encourages treating the wives well. They should be shown love, respect and care. To foster the love and security that comes with marriage, Muslim wives have various rights. The first of the wife's rights is to receive mahr, a gift from the husband, which is part of the marriage contract and required for the legality of the marriage.

The second right of a wife is maintenance. Despite any wealth she may have, her husband is obligated to provide her with food, shelter and clothing. Concerning motherhood, the Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wasallam, said: "Heaven lies under the feet of mothers." This implies that the success of a society can be traced to the mothers who raised it. The first and greatest influence on a person comes from the sense of security, affection and training received from the mother. Therefore, a woman having children must be educated and conscientious in order to be a skillful parent.
A man came to the Prophet, sallallaahu 'alayhi wasallam, and asked: "Who among my kinfolk is worthy of my good companionship?" The Prophet (Pbuh) replied: "Your mother" three times before saying: "Your father." This indicates the impact that a mother has in a person's life. So women are highly honoured in this great religion. Islam is a religion that treats women fairly. The Muslim woman was given a role, duties and rights 1400 years ago that most women do not enjoy even today in the West. These rights are from God and are designed to maintain a balance in society; what may seem "unjust" or "missing" in one place is compensated for or explained in another place. [From: Al-Jumu'ah Vol. 14]
