Brought up a Muslim, Ali became an atheist, and is now one of the foremost outspoken critics of Islam, in particular towards its perceived attitudes to women.
In the Holy Qur’ān, all human beings are mentioned as members of a single large family unit. Members of this large family have some obligations and rights towards each other as well as to the unit itself.
Islam permits divorce, but according to the Hadith, it is one of the most displeasing acts in the sight of Allah.
Both Muslim men and women are enjoined to contribute to the betterment of society and to that effect, Islam does not limit a Muslim woman’s pursuit of leadership roles/duties in any manner.
The Islamic injunction of segregation between men and women is a means to prevent the free mixing of the sexes, such as to prevent moral degradation of society.
Before the advent of Islam, women did not have any status or rights in society. They were considered second-class citizens.
Islamic prayer (salaat) is composed of different physical postures. Out of respect for their chastity and honour, women are not advised to stand for prayer in front of men.
