ON MUSLIM #FEMINISM

One of the major breakdowns in communication between #Muslim #feminists and critics thereof is the implicit misconception that the latter have not or do not face issues around women's rights. This is largely due to yet another misconception: 1/6
the inaccurate claim that critics of feminism do not believe there is a need to fight for women's rights.

Having said it innumerable times, it remains a point that falls on deaf ears: to be critical of feminism is neither a lack of empathy, nor a dismissal of 2/6
the plight of women within the ummah. Across the global Muslim community, there are female critics of feminism who suffer injustices and who fight for their rights in ways that align with Islam. 3/6
To be critical of feminism--the ideology, the history, the approach, the consequences--is a refusal to take the Western tradition for granted, and instead, to take its romanticized history, questionable objectives, and frequent truculent approach to task. 4/6
It is a daring effort to point out the speciousness of a safeguarded ideology whose roots are inextricably connected to #secularism, a paradigm that renders Islam and its constituents as misogynistic, antediluvian and boorish. 5/6
No, to be critical of feminism is, in fact, a grueling moral striving to restore women's rights in the face of unscrupulousness and hostility. 6/6
