Questionable Teachings of Islam:

                                  One Billion People Deceived

                     A Woman's Role in Islamic Theology

        Without  a  doubt,  there  are  many  devout  Muslim  women  who  serve  their  families,
        neighbors and communities with the highest standards of integrity and care for humanity.
        They are just as sincere in their desire to provide a good home life for their children and
        to follow the guidelines that they have been taught in their religion of Islam. Although
        many strive to exemplify the best of what is expected of them, some still experience a
        deep  sense  of  loss  in  the  things  that  they  cannot  do  in  life  because  of  the  imposed
        restrictions set upon them by the ideologies that govern their everyday life. The fear of
        speaking up prevents Muslim women from personally advancing to the highest  levels of
        their  potential achievements due to living in a tight-knit society whose ideology places
        women  in  an  inferior  second-class  status  to  their  male  counterpart.  Such  is  the  case
        throughout the Muslim world. By contrast, moderate Muslim women living in America and
        other Western nations today enjoy the opportunity they have at expressing themselves
        and are placed on the same status level as men. For example, in the democratic process
        the vote of a Muslim woman counts the same as that of any man. Not so in the Islamic
        world where women have been denied voting privileges throughout the centuries. Even in
        the Islamic courts of law, it takes two female witnesses to equal that of one male witness.
        According to what is taught in Islamic theology, it is "Allah" that has commanded this to

        " Allah has commanded the testimony of two women so as to be sure that they
        remember, because the mind and memory of two women takes the place of the mind
        and memory of one man."  (I'laam al-Muwaqqa'een, part 1, p.75)
