Without doubt Allah SWT has created both men & women with magnificient qualities uniquely typical to both genders.
Both compliment each other and are incomplete without each other while numerous verses of Quran state this fact.
The only reason that comes to my mind which prompts placing of women in the back rows for offering prayers is only and only out of dignity and not to treat them as a discard.
Yes in many instances the areas in the back designated for women are not as well kept and adequate while this matter should be attended by the administrators of premeises promptly and appropriately.
There is ample mention of the noble place for women in the Holy Quran and plenty of reminders for the dignity and respect of women as a wife, a mother and a sister, it would be an individual's failure not to heed with such stipulations.
Please do not take aim at Deen e Islam because of your indivdual personal experiences that may have caused you to think and act negatively against the very basics of Islam.
An Imam though a man, is borne by a woman, brought up by a woman, cared for by a woman, only a woman as mother offers the level of care one receives as a child and even as a youth. Let us not assemble against each other because it will only hurt Muslims and not Islam while, as it is Muslims are being hurt by their enemies in many different ways throughout this world and there is no need for us to further our agony.
It is my personal request to avoid tossing this topic around any more depriving it the exposure that some aim to gain through this venture, avoiding to unnecessarily discuss this matter should help put this to rest than to agitate it any further, which only allows the manipulators to manipulate and mutilate further.
