Women in politics.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
aslam u aliakum,
does islam allows a woman to be in politics, what quranshrief says about it
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Women in politics
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 34:
..Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what Allah would have them guard (their chastity, their husbands property and honor, etc.)
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3272 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
When Allah's Messenger (saws) was asked which woman was best, he (saws) replied, "The one who pleases (her husband) when he looks at her, obeys him when he gives a (lawful) command, and does not go against his wishes regarding her person or property by doing anything of which he disapproves."
The role or duties prescribed by the Lord unto the believing woman is to worship Allah and associate no partners with Him, fulfill her due rights unto her family and especially her husband.and if the woman fulfills her prescribed duty and fulfills her due rights unto her Creator and unto the created, she is promised success in the Hereafter.
Islam does not prohibit a woman from entering the field of politics if she wishes to do so, provided she does not compromise or neglect the obligatory duties and responsibilities which Islam has laid upon her.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
