As Salaamu Alaykum Sister.

As Salaamu Alaikum and hello. I appreciate your comment very much. I want to clarify that this article’s emphasis is not on the Deen but on the statements and practices of Muslims, particularly Muslim leadership, that are influenced by patriarchy- a system where men hold power and women are excluded from it. I wish I could say that I’d never heard women equated to property in Muslim spaces but given the experiential value (non-ideological value) of this statement, a person who doesn’t know me cannot confirm or deny whether “any aspect of [my] existence or value to society” was belittled in these environments. If I felt that the Deen sanctioned any of this, I would not claim association with the religion at all. Thank you.
