Transcript of Modest Women Rights in Islam and Religion(s) Manuscript

Our topic is about religious accommodations in public areas.
Our main focus was on, how much of the Canadian society is accepting of a women that wears a veil.
Our specific area of interest was on Muslim women wearing the Hijab.
The process
Creating a significant hypothesis on worship ideologies
Religious appearance correlating with behavior
Independent, dependent, and intervening factors.
Results from research, interviews and surveys that proved our hypothesis.
Hypothesis: Does ideologies of worship affect the norms of society, including the workforce and at schools?’
By: Waleed Khan, Abdul Hadi, and Rizwan Irfan
After further research our hypothesis is derived into “Islam and Religion accommodates women equity in the North American Society”.
Islam views women equally in a sense of women rights and the women in society ,also do all the religions acknowledge women equity?
In Islam how another woman is treated in society vs. a society which follows Islam.
Also how religion, taking into account of the three monotheistic religions, give gender equity?
We based this hypothesis on the views of gender roles in society.
the views of society towards gender equity
The results from the survey and interview questions mostly proved our hypothesis that religions and Islam give women equity in the North American society.
In the interview questions the majority of the people responded that “religious women are displayed negatively in media” and “the relationship between religion and gender is that religion gives equity to women while the people in the religion contradict it”.
All of the stages from one to five lead us to prove our hypothesis

Religions and Islam give women equity in the North American society.

This was achieved through the research from stage one and two

The method of application from the research in stage three,

lastly the results from stage four and five which provided us with solid evidence supporting our topic.

Modest Women Rights in Islam and Religion(s)
Does society consider women to be equal or liberate them in anyway?
We correlate this question on the depths of Islam and Religion
However, other parts of the text suggest traditional gender roles in eyes of society, where women are mothers and wives which can be a more beneficial lifestyle, and husbands to be providers.
We also considered the fact of differences in morality and ethics, not just that but also the roles of women and if they have a role beside religion in degrading or uplifting women.
Religious societies vs. non- religious societies views on this today and historically. Historically and till this date many religious people were and are following cultures but not the religion itself which can prove why people mistake religion(s) for oppression on women.
"Women rights in Islam should be judged on the authentic sources of Islam, not the people in the religion" - (Dr. Zakir Naik PhD)
We further analyzed on how different religions view this topic by the monotheistic religions, especially Islam.

In The holy book of Islam, the Qur’an explicitly requires equity between men and women.

The text explicitly states, "O you who believe, you are forbidden to inherit women against their will. Nor should you treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the dower you have given them, except where they have been guilty of open lewdness; on the contrary live with them on a footing of kindness and equity." (Chapter 4, Verse 19) (Surah An Nisa: The Women, Translation By Abdullah Yousuf Ali)
Studies have been reported by The Telegraph newspaper (4) that women those who are living their life according to religion are more happy than women living by culture.
We surveyed many teens, adults, and all type of people throughout the school and neighborhood.
We interviewed many people of different backgrounds to give us a better insight of people in the Canadian society.
gender equity or differences
different religions, ethics, and morals.
More research was applied into the variables, and they all lead towards religion and Islam requiring women to have equity with men and have a beneficial lifestyle.
Also we went to religious institutions (e.g Mosques, Churches) and surveyed their leaders.
42 random individuals were surveyed
Majority of them were from Glenforest Secondary School
Religious institutions didn't give clear answers but the scriptures did.
We predicted that the North American society believe in religious women having equity with men and we received little mixed to maximum positive feedback
