‘Don’t stop them from the part of women in the mosques.’

‘Do not refuse your women to go to the mosque.’

“When your women to the mosque at night allowed to ask them permission to give.”

Who, who, when and why is he saying this?

This thing is four and a half hundred years ago. Prophet of Islam, Hazrat Muhammad, said. This order is for men. The matter is about going to and from mosque. Apparently, it is being talked about by women.

Is this just a religious issue?

When the matter is so clear, then there should not be any issue on it today. But the issue of Muslim women coming and going in mosques in the Gahe-Bahaga Mosques is known. This issue creates such a picture that it seems that the basic spirit of Islam is against the movement of women to the mosque.

A few months ago, a petition has also been filed in the Supreme Court related to women going to the mosque.

The issue is there. But the issue is the social rule that prohibits the movement of women of any religion anywhere in a free and independent way. Wants to keep their movement under control. Decides where, when, how, how long she will go.

That is why the presence of women in common places in our ancestral society, according to their number and against men is very less.

The same applies to mosques as well. Yes, in order to

control women here many times resort to religion.

Just as arguments are given against the movement of women alone, anytime, anywhere, similar arguments are also given against women not going to the mosque.

The issue is not just about going to and from mosques. Therefore, just visiting and visiting mosques will not end this issue.

This is the religious right of a Muslim woman
So does this mean that women should wait?

Not at all.

The way she is making her place in other places, here also she has to make a place. They have to be given space. This is his religious right. This right is as much as their masculine Muslims.

Islam has faithfully done five things for its followers: martyrdom (ie, believing in one God of God), namaz, roza, zakat and hajj. There is no difference between men and women in them.

There is no concession without a man or woman. So the question is that if men can go to offer prayers in the mosque to pay their religious duty, then why not women?

So what used to happen during Hazrat Mohammad’s era

We go through that period, which is called the period of Hazrat Mohammad. We get a lot of information (hadith) about this phase through their companions and their wives, especially Hazrat Ayesha. All these, the information we give, shows that in those times women used to go to the mosque. Hazrat used to offer Namaz in Mohammad’s Imamat. He was illuminated by the idea.

Hazrat Ayesha shows that the women used to pray in the Jamaat with him in the prayers of Fajr. Hazrat Umm Salma says that Hazrat Mohammed used to stay in the mosque for a while so that women could get out of the mosque from Itminan.

He encouraged women to come to the mosque. He took special care. They were very sensitive about their problems. Get a mention. Accordingly, Hazrat Muhammad said that I start the prayer and want to read it long but when I hear the cry of the cry of a child, then I make the prayer clear.

Why did they do this?

Hazrat Mohammed continues, because I know that because of the crying of the child, his mother will have trouble and discomfort. It is clear that women used to offer Namaz in the mosque. Yes, just like today, the mother used to raise children.

Hazrat Mohammad was not only aware of this fact, but he also felt it with determination. These Muslim women should not be troubled because of the child and their prayers are also fulfilled, they also showed this way through it. Does this sensitivity towards women appear in today’s time?

Not only this, there are many such instances where they order women to join the prayers of Zuma, Eid ul Fitr (Eid) and Iduzjoha (Bakrid). If someone has trouble coming, then they solve it. For example, when they asked women to come to the Eid prayer, many told that they do not have a sheet to cover. So they did not say that they should not come. He said that such women should cover their sheets with their sisters.

Not only this, they also encouraged women to come because there was a danger with these prayers. There were talks of training and tact. He used to take special care that this thing should reach women. Men should not only get ilm but women should also be partners/participants in the ilm found here.

There are also examples that they used to book women separately as well. It used to be in the mosque.

Not only this, women also used to offer Namaz. Yes, his place of reading and teaching Namaz was different.

The three most important mosques for women

Religiously, for Muslims, the mosque of Mecca, Alharam, the mosque of Medina, Nabvi, and the mosque of Jerusalem are often of paramount importance. In these, even in the early stages of Islam, women used to go to offer Namaz.

Even today during the Haj, women and men Muslims together play religious rights. Offer Namaz together. They also include women from countries who have never been to mosques in their country or who have not been allowed to go or who have not been told that women should go to the mosque or who were told but a line was added to it. It is better to read Namaz at home.

Masjid means place of worship, education, and devotion

The idea of โ€‹โ€‹a mosque has not been just for namaz since the early days. The mosque is designed for many purposes. Such as Namaz, Ibadat, Ilm, Salah-Mashweera, Transfer-e-Khayal, Samaji Guftugu – All of them used to be here at that time. In its view, the mosque is an open space. So, what happens except the big hall/hallway in the mosque? This open space is important in itself.

That is, everyone can gather together in some kind of group. There is no such religious system that gives place or strengthens the social/economic people. That is why Iqbal probably said, Mahmood O Ayaz stood in the same white, there was neither a man nor a man.

Will this line of Iqbal apply only to male Muslims? Does it treat women as out of order?

Maulana Umar Ahmad Usmani writes in his book Fiqhul Quran, “Masajid and Ijtamai Ibadatgahs were not only places of worship in Ibtadae Ahade Islam, but they were also dargahs (places of training) and tarbiyat gah. Their participation was not only a matter of worship but also for the training and progress of women. ”

That is, there is nothing in the initial phase of Islam and during the period of Hazrat Mohammad, which is against women going to the mosque, praying, and offering Namaz in the assembled Jamaat.

So why not learn something from that period? Should the values โ€‹โ€‹of that era be carried forward without principles? Why not make women go the way to mosques?

Because in Islam’s basic book ‘Quran‘, when women and men were called for religion, it did not matter.

Its greatest example is this verse of Surah al-Ahzab-

Muslim men and Muslim women

And believing men and believing women

Men Feminine and Feminine Women

Men and women who speak the truth

Men Patient and Patient Women

Men who show humility and women who show humility

Men and women who remember Allah well

For this, Allah has prepared a big apology and a big revenge.

Now if any Muslim girl or woman asks that our Allah is equal for men and women, then why treat discrimination with us?

Will his question be meaningless?
