As Salaamu Alaykum Sister. I am not going to use this as an opportunity to share anything that could be seen as a slight against you or your article. I would like to ask you to allow yourself the pleasure of experiencing the Reality of the necessary elements of this Blessed Deen. Not through the lenses of a Feminist, African-American, or even a Western tint. Rather take an objective journey along the Path set out for us by Allah (swt)and His Blessed Messenger (saw).
The Deen never sanctioned Women as property. Neither was any aspect of your existence or value to society belittled.
