I came across an article in the Spectator about the launch of the Centre for Secular Space where Muslim and ex-muslim women campaign for greater freedoms. Has anyone heard of this group?

I wish I could post a link but I can't.

I wish I could post links. I am trying to do a hundred and one things this evening. I am a big fan of human rights activist Maryam Namadzie as well. Anyone heard of her and her "One law for all campaign"? It seems of a similar ilk to the Centre for Secular Space although she is most definitely an ex-muslim.

Most ex muslim woman, try to raise the issue of equality, I think it is some kind of justification for leaving Islam, as it is the most annoying label that anti muslims try to stick it on us. We are free, we can work, study, and live a life of freedom because we are slave to Allah only, not to society, or fashion, or all the sad things most woman are slave to, so for me, it really annoys me when people try to stick that label, I dress modestly ( my choice), I am not slave to society ( my choice).so for ex-muslims and anti Muslims, try to find other woman to liberate, Islam has given us our freedom.

OK. Now she is one hater of all religions especially Islam and will find any excuse to attack it, make malicious accusations, promote Atheism and on top of that she gets credit for it; she was selected one of the top 45 women of the year 2007 in the magazine Elle Quebec (the French version of Elle) No surprises there, eh?

She's the spokesperson for "One Law for All Campaign" and it is opposes faith based laws and is against implementing Shariah law in Great Britain.

That is Maryam. You sound a little threatened by her stance. Why would anyone choose to be a slave to a deity? Why would any deity worth worshiping require such obedience under threat of eternal pain? I really don't get it. As for freedom, the west still has a long way to go before women are seen as equals but I fear that aspects if Islam are still stuck in the middle ages and if the media is to be believed, there are many who would choose to keep it there.

I am fed-up reading justifications as to why men should be able to have four wives, why women enjoy hiding themselves in public and why women don't really want to drive. This is why I am here, to try and get a different perspective. To find out if there is such a thing as a moderate muslim, if people can be muslim without believing in god and what changes you would like to see.

Slavery is not chosen, it is just a state that is. If there's a choice involved, it is not slavery.

If we postulate an omnipotent deity, it follows that everyone is a slave of that deity. Omnipotence implies absolute power, which negates the freedom of everyone else. You are not free if anything you do, anything at all, will only happen if God allows it. At most, you'll have the illusion of freedom simply because of God's apparent choice not to stop you.

Better than slavery to a system at least with :Allah: :swt: we get to keep our dignity and he ever elevates us for it. His law establishes beyt al'mal.. what does a kaffir system establish?

Oh yes, physicists and engineers bagging groceries or are homeless whereas wh0res make millions for passing out their sex tapes.. If that's your brand of freedom then thanks but no thanks.

Mr Deity,

as you can see here, the sisters on this forum can more than rebuttal an attempt to undermine their freedoms. They are critical thinkers here, and are able to determine the wests attempt claim that the Muslim women have no rights :D

Some orthodox study into Islam will enlighten you to the fact that Muslim women have more rights over their men than vice versa. Not just that, but also the very fact that women in Muslim countries are not second class citizens.

As for apostate shills who claim they know more about Islamic rulings than scholars do, they can take a hike - we're just simply not interested in wasting our precious time discussing matters of absolutely no importance to us, nor do they affect our lives in the slightest.

Truth be told, the pic posted on a previous page defining equality and justice, about spells it our for me.

From what I can gather, you are stating that you are free to be slaves to Allah and are very good at defending the inequalities that are most apparant to us shill apostates. I never said that Muslim women have no rights, but even you must admit that in some Islamic theocracies, their rights are negligible. Do you defend Saudi Arabia as a progressive model of Islam?

As I see it, faith is an accident of birth. Allah seems to leave Christians well alone and vice versa.

Well, see my first post in this thread. I recognize that I am a slave, and that the very existence of an omnipotent deity implies as much.

Allow me. :D

First of all Mr Deity,

If you'd studied comparative history, you'd know that those 6 million Jews who were apparently killed during WW2 was a false figure, the real fugure hovers somewhere between 240 - 280,000 killed. Whereas, if you look at the death toll of Muslims during just world war 1 - that far exceeded 6 million, and ww2 was worse. Let's travel back further, to say, the early 18th century yes?

Ever heard of a character named Charles Hempher? He was the British spy who posed as an Arab and befriended the Saud, he then went on to promise the Saud that he will make them Kings of Arabia if they helped the british government overthrow the Caliphate - you'd know this as the Ottoman Empire. The Caliphate is akin to the papacy in Rome. Muslims too are supposed to have a pope like figure - but you know what? since 1924, we haven't.

Ever since Hempher and his mottley crew of Northern Gog and Magogs entered into Arabian lands, they caused havoc everhwere, and the British plan to make the Arabian lands subservient to the Biritsh and now very Amercian interests, has fruited to ensure that the Muslims the world over are always on the back foot.

But you know, God's people always seem to be on the back foot...

....rigfht up til the last moment, and history is testament to that.

I'd ask you to reflect on an entire people, who had the rug pulled out from under them, and are now asked "where do you stand? and why?" that's bloody cheeky.

ProTip: If people react with annoyance at what you post, it does not prove that you are asking hard questions or speaking hard, unpopular truths, or that the annoyance is due to insecurity or intellectual discomfort. A much more common cause is that you are simply being rude and sanctimonious.

If you seriously want to "challenge your prejudices", it'd help to be a bit less provocative. And to drop the attitude that your views are the only true ones, and that to avert the "danger" of you leaving with your prejudices intact, we'd have to roll over and agree with you in everything.

You really don't get it, do you? If there really is One God (as ALL Muslims believe), then we are a part of His creation. The Qur'an tells us that the purpose for creating mankind is for them to worship Him. You are completely free to not submit your person to serving and obeying God in the same manner that I am free to submit to His guidance. If you choose to be rebellious and earn the wrath of Allah (subhana wa ta ala), then I hope that you remember to voice your complaints about your perceived 'injustice' on Judgement Day before Rabb il-Alameen, Maliki Yawmi Deen.
I am fed-up reading justifications as to why men should be able to have four wives,
... and how many Muslims do you know who have more than one wife?
why women enjoy hiding themselves in public and why women don't really want to drive.
Oh, I see you want to liberate Muslim women from their hijab so you can oogle over their bodies exposed through tight and revealing clothing.
This is why I am here, to try and get a different perspective. To find out if there is such a thing as a moderate muslim, if people can be muslim without believing in god and what changes you would like to see.
This statement is most revealing. In other words you want us to become a Jew. If you had any understanding whatsoever, you would know that it is literally impossible to "be a muslim without believing in god". I have actually spoken at length with a Rabbi (Reform) and I was shocked to learn that believing in God is NOT a requirement for someone to be considered a Jew. She (yes, the Rabbi was a woman) also wrote/spoke about how the rights of women to pray publically at the Wailing Wall were being repressed by Israel. So Jewish women are still fighting for their 'liberation', too, and you want to see Muslimahs do the same in order to gain the right to dress as scantily as possible (bikinis, tank-tops, lowcut blouses, tight jeans, short skirts, etc.), to marry non-Muslim men, lead men in prayer, etc. In other words you want to separate Muslims from Islam.

Do you not know that while Eurpoe was still in the Dark Ages that Muslims were at the forefront of science and mathematics? It is true that since the late 1400's European civilization came to dominate and the Caliphate was on the decline until its collapse after WWI. But then again, the 'kaffir system', as you say, has also promoted such non-logical theories as naturalistic evolution and the creation and use of horrific WMD by those same physicists you are so proud of.

I, too, am a convert from Christianity to Islam. Who are you to say, "I bet she wasn't" when someone says their mother was upset to learn of their conversion to Islam? My family was very upset with me as well and I can share a few things about my personal experiences to illustrate this, but I won't out of respect for them.

why women enjoy hiding themselves in public
Covering yourself up or wearing clothes is not hiding yourself in public. Veils have been part of Western fashion for quite some time and are present in almost every single culture across the globe. Female orthodox jews wear a type of veil very similar to both Hijab and Niqab. As do Sikh and Hindu women. I don't know why so many people have an issue with Muslim women choosing to wearing a piece of cloth that almost every other religious woman on the planet wear...

and why women don't really want to drive.
What are you talking about? A Saudi fatwa imposed in a specific area of S.A that is not legally binding in any way shape or form and can be ignored?

If you have questions, by all means ask. But don't act like you know my religion.

Greetings (insert suitable name here),

You have received many excellent replies in this thread. I think they more than adequately address your posts. If you are truly here to learn or have a meaningful discussion, the manner you have adopted in this thread is certainly not the way to go about it. I suggest you start again with any serious questions. If, however, you are simply here to provoke negative reaction, you are wasting everyone's time and will not last very long.
