I've learned that it is not Islam but the culture of the country in which it is practiced that makes it hard on women.

Catholicism has also an oppressive, and perverted side. Paedophile priests, women banned from any position of power in the Catholic church. Catholics joined with Hitler when Germany was under the Nazis. They funded him. <br />
<br />
All religions have fascist and liberal aspects. <br />
<br />
I've read the Qu'ran and there are SOME very peaceful elements to it. <br />
The Bible is filled with the peaceful teachings of Jesus, and yet also filled with violence and encourages bloodshed. <br />
Hinduism has some excellent philosophy regarding compassion to others, but the Caste system is the fascist element. It keeps people from being able to improve their lives if they were born into the lowest castes. <br />
I could go on with examples of other religions and the good and bad sides to them. <br />
<br />
Most people are overly focused on Islam being a 'bad' religion right now. But thats only because it's all over the news. <br />
Funny that all the millions human rights abuses continually going on in China are left unheard, yet - since the US wanted to rape Afghanistan and Iraq, then suddenly there's all this crap about how violent Islam is. <br />
<br />
It seems that while the US and China are trading, they wont let on how much human rights abuse is going on there. But because the US doesn't have to answer to anyone in Iraq or Afghan, then they can manipulate the news however they wish - and spread hatred and racial intolerance. <br />
<br />
Trust me - ALL religions have a fascist and liberal side.

You should do some independent research on Islam. Don't take what the media says for granted. I know for one that it liberates many women in a way no other religion does. If they don't want their bodies to be what they are most valued for - many find solace in Islam. Islam places more value in the mind and the spirit than just the surface of a person.

I don't think so we need to convert or follow any religion. Being just a good human being, believing in humanity is enough and thinking independently, without mind conditioning is more important. Religion is only a political way of dividing humanity...arn't we had enough of blood shed in the name of religion? I don't know about the people who are converting into Islam..not happening in India at least.

No other religious book and no other reformer, religious or secular, has done one-tenth of what the Holy Quran or the Holy Prophet Muhammad has done to raise the position of women. From a material as well as a spiritual point of view, Islam recognizes the position of woman to be the same as that of man. The highest favour which God has bestowed upon mankind is the gift of Divine revelation, and we find women, as well as men, spoken of in the Quran as receiving revelation (see, for example, 3:42 and 28:7). The Quran makes no difference between man and woman in the bestowal of Divine reward for good deeds:<br />
“Whoever does good, whether male or female, and is a believer, these shall enter the Garden (of heaven)” (40:40; see also 3:195, 4:124, 16:97 and 33:35).<br />
Thus, according to the clearest teachings of Islam, men and women can rise to the same eminence in the moral and spiritual spheres.<br />
On the material side too, woman is recognized as on a par with man. She can earn money and own property just as a man can do:<br />
<br />
...And Women Shall Have Rights Over Men Similar To Those For Men Over Women. <br />
(Surah 2: Ayah 228)<br />
This declared that there are no differences between men and women in the sight of God. Both are responsible for their deeds, and both will be held accountable for them.<br />
Let us also consider what Allah's Messenger (pbuh) said about women: <br />
<br />
The Finest Among The Faithful Is The One Whose Moral Character Is Best,<br />
And The Best Among You Are The Ones Who Are Finest To Their Women. Tirmidhi<br />
<br />
Women Are The Other Half Of Men.<br />
Other Hadiths of the Prophet (pbuh) and/or sayings of the Imams are given here:<br />
- The World And All Things In It Are Valuable; But The Most Valuable Thing In The World Is A Virtuous Woman. <br />
- Allah Enjoins You To Treat Women Well, For They Are Your Mothers, Daughters, And Aunts. <br />
- The Rights Of Women Are Sacred. See That Women Are Maintained In The Rights Assigned To Them.<br />
<br />
"See how tender and delicate these recommendations are on behalf of women! These Hadiths were said at a time when women were often mistreated, disrespected, and had virtually no rights, in other words, she was like a property or a possession. Islam changed all that.<br />
Islam enjoined on Muslims to give women their rights and to treat them kindly and tenderly. Islam elevated the status of women to where it should be.<br />
If a woman happens to be your mother or your sister, aunt or niece, she must be held in respect and love. She should be well cared for and appreciated.<br />
A good woman, of decency and virtue, is a great thing in itself. She is most valuable and most prized.<br />
A woman is a delicate person, with sensitivity that should be well guarded. Yet, at the same time, she must be considerate of her husband and children, and be good to them as they are good to her. It therefore becomes a mutual endeavor, each side helping and appreciating the other."<br />
with the right to own and dispose of her property and earnings without any guardianship over her (whether that be her father, husband, or anyone else). She has the right to buy and sell, give gifts and charity, and may spend her money as she pleases. A marriage dowry is given by the groom to the bride for her own personal use, and she keeps her own family name rather than taking her husband’s.<br />
Islam encourages the husband to treat his wife well, as the Prophet Muhammad said: {The best among you are those who are best to their wives.}1<br />
Mothers in Islam are highly honored. Islam recommends treating them in the best way. A man came to the Prophet Muhammad and said, “O Messenger of God! Who among the people is the most worthy of my good companionship?” The Prophet said: {Your mother.} The man said, “Then who?” The Prophet said: {Then your mother.} The man further asked, “Then who?” The Prophet said: {Then your mother.} The man asked again, “Then who?” The Prophet said: {Then your father.}2<br />

Islam accepts human rights. When you hear about the injustices in Muslim countries it's just culture disguised with the words of religion. Islam is the true religion, and whether or not the followers choose to corrupt their own image it is irrelevant to the legitimacy of the religion itself. The first religion to ban both male and female infanticide (The murder of babies) "People, We have created you all male and female and have made you nations and tribes so that you would recognize each other. The most honourable among you in the sight of God is the most pious of you. God is All-knowing and All-aware." - A man is not judged by his wealth or his intelligence in Islam, but only by his piety. Islam accepted people from all races and genders 1300 years before the west did. Research, my brother in humanity, and Inshallah Allah will guide you
