Women in Islam

For the most part, the woman’s place is the home.  The Taliban, in particular, when it controlled Afghanistan, forced women out of their jobs, out of their schools, and back into their homes, which they could not leave without a male relative.  In most Muslim nations, women are not required to stay home – but it is often the reality.

The head-covering and accompanying veil that some Muslim women wear are known as abaya, or hijab.  In the West it is an item of controversy and if you befriend a Muslim woman in your city, you would be wise to make her feel comfortable with whatever decision she makes about traditions.

The typical homebound status of Muslim women – as well as their disposition as secondary to men – can make them hungry for relationship.  Because Muslims honour purity, it is best if men befriend men and women befriend women, particularly when meeting in a home or alone.

Remember too that the goal is to bring Jesus into your relationship – not Westernism, materialism, postmodernism, feminism, capitalism or any other -ism.

About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
