Why is "Women" The #1 Issue Islam is Questioned About?

Whenever one talks to people about Islam the issue that comes up again and again is the issue of "Women in Islam". This is not just with ordinary people - even the media, politicians and the orientalists pick on this. Well publicised muslim-woman-related controversies come up at regular intervals, the latest being the "burqa ban". Also there is no lack books written by even those who profess to be Muslims talking very negatively about this subject. (The only other issue that gets as much attention as this is terrorism!)
  • Why is this the case?
  • Is it totally unfounded or is there any truth to this?
  • Have the observers not understood properly or is it the Muslims themselves who have got things mixed up, or both?
If you have these questions then this is your unique opportunity to have a deeper and broader understanding of "Women in Islam" with a historic seminar with Dr Mohammed Akram Nadwi. The seminar is based on his ground-breaking research spanning over 7 years examining over 8000 female scholars of Islam and Muslim women in the society dating back to time of the Prophet Muhammad.

Also please read the New York Times article
"A Secret History" which talks about the research of Shaykh Dr Akram Nadwi which this seminar will be based on.

New York Times: (Generally a good article but there is some spin in it especially about Umm Darda praying shoulder-to-shoulder with men. It was supposed to be when she was still very young)
