This is one of the best documentaries iv'e seen made by dispatches, this program just show how sexist and ignorant alot of british men are. At the time of prohet muhammed (pbuh) woman were allowed to pray in the mosque but after he had died it all changed.

There are around 1,600 mosques in Britain. Well over half do not allow women access to worship and hardly any allow women a say on how the mosques are managed and run. Journalist Tazeen Ahmad follows a group of young Muslim women from the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPACUK) who are waging a determined campaign to force these mosques to open up.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh. (Pure ones belong to God, victory to God)

Great stuff. It's good to see women trying to seek equality within Islam. Just as the Quran states.

Men are egotistical. And watching the programme just shows how they get defensive when challenged.

What a pathetic comment to make about women 'They should stay at home and cover themselves' well. from what I saw of the women, they were covered modestly.

Hope to see a change in the future and I hope more and more women support this, and get access to all the Mosques. God belongs to all, not just men!

Just another point. You follow hte Quran, and Mohammed. He states perfectly clearly ''DO NO STOP A WOMAN FROM GOING TO THE MOSQUE'' Justify stopping her!

The chap who had his face hidden was talking about Caliphs deciding to ban women. If Mohammed was not disturbed by a woman, why should other men? If they can't control their desires, it's them that should be banned from attending.

I find it strange how one of the (overall) smallest mosques I frequent is able to have space for both male and females, yet many mosques (often 2 to 4 times larger) are not.

Another problem of the Ummah that needs fixing.

Firstly if the masjid is packed out with brothers and there's no room sisters should respect that it's fard for men to pray in the masjid, but if the masjid has enough space to accomadate sisters then they have a right to pray there aswell, we should also remember that it's best for sisters to pray in the house and why u ask, beacuse not every sisters can make it to the masjid also many maybe mothers,carers ect, so there's wisdom in this.

He states perfectly clearly ''DO NO STOP A WOMAN FROM GOING TO THE MOSQUE'' Justify stopping her!
The full hadeeth is as follows, "Do not prevent your women from going to the mosque, even though their houses are better for them." (Reported by Abu Dawud in al-Sunan, Baab maa jaa’a fee khurooj al-nisaa’ ilaa’l-masjid: Baab al-tashdeed fee dhaalik. See also Saheeh al-Jaami‘, no. 7458

And from the other thread:

Whenever a woman prays in a place that is more private and more hidden, that is better for her, as the Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) said: "A woman’s prayer in her house is better than her prayer in her courtyard, and her prayer in her bedroom is better than her prayer in her house." (Reported by Abu Dawud in al-Sunan, Baab maa jaa’a fee khurooj al-nisaa’ ilaa’l-masjid. See also Saheeh al-Jaami‘, no. 3833).

This is not an issue of sexism in Islam or "equality". Men and women have different roles to play in society and sometimes such differences in the genders are reflected in the way they worship Allaah.

Also, some Mosques cater for women and some do not; yet some of the ones offering facilities for women are only used by women on Fridays, Ramadhaan night prayers and Eid prayers.

The previous thread was closed and I think it is best if this one is also.
