    In Islam, there is no conflict between faith in God and modern scientific knowledge. Indeed, for many centuries during the Middle Ages, Muslims led the world in scientific inquiry and exploration. The Quran itself, revealed 14 centuries ago, contains many scientific facts and imagery that are supported by modern findings. From the writing of her first book, Beyond the Veil: Male-Female Dynamics in Modern Muslim Society in , Mernissi has sought to reclaim the ideological discourse on women and sexuality from the stranglehold of patriarchy. She critically examines the classical corpus of religious-juristic texts, including the Hadith, and reinterprets them from a feminist perspective.3/5(2).

    According to Islam, a woman and a man are both human beings and both are apportioned equal rights. That which has been kept in view in Islam is that woman and man, on the basis of the very fact that one is woman and the other is a man, are not identical with each other in many respects. Islam is arguably the most discussed religion in the west today, in both media and society, and, after terrorism, the plight of Muslim women is probably the most controversial topic of : Susan Carland.

Women's status in Islam has been defined by Islamic texts, the Koran, and the culture of the Muslims. Although the general belief is that Islam is very oppressive towards women, some argue that the Koran declares that men and women are equal.

The Quran is the holy book of Islam. It was written in the 7th century C.E. Its content is the wisdom of Allah as received and preached by Muhammad. The Quran is divided into chapters (called surah) and verses (ayat) of differing length and topics.
