    Posted: 03 September 2005 at 11:39pm

One of the things that has bothered me here (and abroad) is that our community is segregated. Not in the sense of who goes where i the mosque or how one should conduct themselves in regards to approaching another sex. That is not my point. My point is that in many cases here as I've seen that we propagate the seperation of men in women in terms of knowledge. Now, there are many arguments for such a seperation but how many men can say they have knowledge of what Muslimah's are in the world, I mean the knowledge of the worth of women or men?

It's probably me and my "western" ideas but I tend to think our lack of understanding of the sexes is what leads to our downfall as people sometimes.

Well anyway I'm done babbling wont be here much longer

Israfil,

Is there ever a time when you want to hear the truth?

Since it is culture to which culture are you referring?

 Girl Vs Boy 

 

Good arguments folks ... I enjoyed the thread so far  

I had this angry attitude towards men some years ago, and most of it had to do with lack of and/or wrong knowledge about them. It was not culture, or exposure. I think most of it had to do with  observations and presumptions which I had some how come to over simplify and genralize.

I guess the same over simplification can be true the other way round, ie of men doing it for women.

In Islamic culture and deen it is not correct (or wisdom) to take interest in opposite gender to the level of an individual , however there is no clause for not studying the opposite gender in order to understand them. This infact benfits both men and women to treat their spouses better, and raise their kids.

Maa salaama,

Nausheen
