This course will explore basic beliefs and principles in regards to Muslim women’s rights, duties, and responsibilities in Islam.
Islamic societies and the media have often portrayed a negative image of Muslim women, leaving many with misconceptions, perceptions, and questions about women’s status in Islam. This course will explore basic beliefs and principles in regards to Muslim women’s rights, duties, and responsibilities in Islam. By looking at Qur’anic verses, and Hadith (a traditional account of things said or done by Muhammad or his companions) as well as various texts and videos, this course will help you gain a deeper understanding into women’s status in Islam.
As a young Muslim woman, who has experienced life in the Middle East and the West, I have come to make sense of both worlds. Islam, being the fastest growing religion yet the most misrepresented, has created much interest in the past decade.
From August 2017 course:
"The tutor was very informative and made learning fun."
"I enjoyed the teacher's presence - her being and enthusiasm to show us her way of seeing Islam. A lot of explaining which was interesting. Good to see videos."
