One of the most important and revolutionary DVDs in the Islam From Within series, this DVD explores issues of gender and the role of women through an examination of Qur’anic verses and the life examples of Prophet Muhammad. You will learn that:
- Islam speaks against the abuse of women and children.
- Islam makes women’s education a religious obligation.
- Eve is not the reason why Adam was sent to earth.
- Islam mandates gender equality in the law and before God.
- Islam speaks of women as mothers, business owners, politicians, military commanders, doctors, educators, theologians and legislators.
Imam Hendi is passionate and convincing as he dispels commonly-held cultural beliefs about the role of women in Islam. Viewers will be amazed to learn the history of Islam’s elevation of the status of women and that the “women’s rights” movement may have started much earlier in history than previously thought.
