Why women are so oppressed among the Islam?

Q5. Host: You mentioned the seed of the woman. Do you think that maybe why women are so oppressed among the Islam? (1:20)

Answer

Dr. Labib: Well, I think that when they say, when the Bible says 'the seed of the woman' of course, it was mentioning Mary as the mother of Jesus. But the Koran did not mention any name of any woman, because woman has no value in Islam. Period! Who are the wives of Mohammed? You know, you go to the Bible and you read about David, and you will read about the names of every wife of David. You go to Jacob, you know Rachel and Leah. Anyone, in fact, when you go to the book of 1 Kings, and 2 Kings, when the Bible mentions the name of the king, it says, "he was the son of that woman," and mentions the name of that woman, not the father, the woman, the mother. You see, because women have value in Christianity and Judaism. In Islam no value, that is very plain.

sorry, but i think you got it wrong.
maybe you have mistaken. In Quran there are names of women.
Surah Maryam (Mary)
Surah Nisa'
Balqis (Queen of Saba)
and many more. you just need to do some studies before you led others to stray path. there are wives of Muhammad mentioned in history and Hadith. All 13 of them, and I can tell you each of them if you want me to.
Islam is the religion who takes great care of women.
Peace be upon u

He said in Quran, not hadith. Women in Islam are meaningless... :o

I am currently reading a book on Islam, titled "Being Muslim", by Haroon Siddiqui. In it, he mentions that according to Islam, women have their rights and are respected. However, he also says that, depending on how the region/culture interprets different parts of the Quran, that alone makes all the difference in how they treat women.

Leah,
The same thing happens with the Bible. Many people interpret it differently, and that's why there are so many different denominations of christianity. Some believe the laws in the Old Testament should still apply, and some believe those laws should be left in the past. Personally, I believe some of the laws were in place because of the time period. For example, it was against the law to eat any meat. God made that a law because in that time period, people didn't know how to prepare meat yet. Other laws, like, "thou shall not murder," should obviously still be in place. It's all about how people interpret the book though.

I am confused over the dueling schools of thought here. Are women meaningless or not in Islam?

This is one of the stark differences between Islam and Christianity. It is really interesting to see the connections between the Bible and Islam.

Are women only oppressed against so severely in the Jihad belief, or is it this severe in the entirety of Islam faith? I'm curious to know if women are oppressed just because it's what the belief has always been, or if it has valid reasoning behind why.

I have to disagree with you. Muhammad spoke for the rights of women, and he wanted them to be treated more as equals. He thought they should get an education, and he was against genital mutilation. Also, I believe you can not simply say women had value in the Bible. They had names yes, but they were still often treated like property or as second class citizens.

I do not understand why woman are put down in value. I feel like it may have to do with the face that Allah and Muhammad are/were both male. I feel like if Allah was a female, there would be more value among woman. Here is another perspective, without woman this world would not function. Woman play a key role in the world, as do males. One without the other would lead to total disaster. I understand that the father is the head of the household, but that household became possible not through only males, not through only females, but through both. :o

How did this come to be, and why does it differ from Christianity and Judaism so much in this way when they are extremely similar in most every other aspect?
