  • Were Muslim women generally allowed to fight in wars during ancient times?

    Best answer: Examples of women companions of the Prophet Muhammad fighting in the jihad are available from both classical and on temporary accounts. For example, the moralist figure ‘Abd al-Ghani b. ‘Abd al-Wahid al-Maqdisi (d. 1203) in his small treatise Manaqib al-sahabiyyat (The Merits of the Women Companions [of the Prophet... show more
    Best answer: Examples of women companions of the Prophet Muhammad fighting in the jihad are available from both classical and on temporary accounts. For example, the moralist figure ‘Abd al-Ghani b. ‘Abd al-Wahid al-Maqdisi (d. 1203) in his small treatise
    Manaqib al-sahabiyyat (The Merits of the Women Companions [of the Prophet Muhammad]) describes two women from the time of the Prophet Muhammad who fought in his wars.One of them, Nusayba daughter of Ka‘b (also known as Um ‘Umara), is said to have gone out to help the wounded during the Battle of Uhud (626), which was the Prophet’s major defeat, but then took up a sword and received 12 wounds. She is quoted saying that there were four women with her—she took up a sword, whereas another, who was pregnant at the time, had a knife, and they fought alongside the men.
    Another of the women cited by al-Maqdisi was Safiya, the aunt of the Prophet Muhammad, who during the Battle of the Khandaq (627) took refuge in one of the strongholds of Medina together with other Muslim women and children.
    Clearly women did take part in the fighting. Modern Muslim feminists have managed to gather more names of women who fought during the time of the Prophet. ‘Aliyya Mustafa Mubarak in her collection Sahabiyyat mujahidat has assembled a list of 67
    women who, according to her, fought in the wars of the Prophet Muhammad or immediately afterward in the great Islamic conquests.
    However, when the list is examined it becomes apparent that many of the women participated in battles in a supporting role,
    usually by accompanying the fighters, encouraging the men, or by providing medical care and assistance after the fact.
    Comparatively few of the women she cites actually went out on the battlefield.

    it is known that different women did participate in the great conquests. Again, the information concerning the nature of
    their participation is limited. Umm Haram does not appear to have done anything more substantial than sail on a boat; whether she actually participated in any campaigns is doubtful. From later times (approximately ninth through eleventh centuries) we know of a category of women known as the mutarajjulat, women who act or dress like men.
    These women were cursed by the Prophet Muhammad, who grouped them together with men who acted or dressed like women (probably effeminates or passive homosexuals).
    However, the grouping of these two categories together does not necessarily mean that the mutarajjulat were lesbians (because condemnations of lesbians used a different word), but more probably that these were women who participated in the world of men and dressed like men. Although there are few historical anecdotes about such women, there are a number of accounts in literary folk tales that indicate they fought in battles.

  • Is there a way for my mother to call my old school (it’s been years) and get my file?

    Best answer: You can go to a new school. Your new school will request your file from your old school, and they will transfer it directly. Your mother doesn't need to be involved in requesting it. Your mother also doesn't need to be involved, probably, in your going to a new school. You can just walk into the school... show more
    Best answer: You can go to a new school. Your new school will request your file from your old school, and they will transfer it directly. Your mother doesn't need to be involved in requesting it.

    Your mother also doesn't need to be involved, probably, in your going to a new school. You can just walk into the school that serves students your age in your neighborhood and ask to register as a student. They'll tell you what you need to do. If they need a parent's signature and she won't give it, you may be able to ask a judge for a waiver so you can attend.

    You write well. You don't seem stupid or crazy to me. The new school can test you and place in you classes according to your level of knowledge, which is different from your level of education or your age. If you aren't up to grade level, you can take remedial classes until you are. (Look up "gaslighting" -- often abusive people will accuse you of being crazy when you're not. She may be abusive.)

    You may also be able to go to an English school if your Arabic isn't up to the level you need. There are often international schools that teach in English or French.

    I wonder what's going on with your mother. Is she afraid of the authorities or legal system? Are you there illegally? Is she just mentally ill? Are you a girl and she doesn't believe girls need to be educated?

    Oh, and if you're old enough to get a job, you can get one by yourself. Your mother doesn't need to be involved in that either. They don't call and ask for her permission.

    I feel for you. It's tough to have a parent that doesn't want you to move forward with your life.

    Best answer: Just because changes are taking place in Saudi, the country is far away from becoming like the West. Just because women will be allowed to drive and some concerts may take place, that doesn't mean, that Saudi culture will adopt western culture and be westernized. Saudi as an Islamic country will always have different views/values on certain things like e.g. Americans, etc. And that's good.

    I'm visiting a friend of mine who works in Saudi Arabia under a contract. I used to issue a business visa which was an extremely long and bureaucratic process. It would be so much less of a hassle to just get a plain tourist visa. I know that Saudi Arabia will star issuing tourist visas on the first of April, 2018. I also know that they are going to be electronic. The one thing I don't know however, is how to get it. If someone can send a link or just tell me how to get it, that would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

    So I am an Egyptian doctor, middle aged but look a little younger, rather attractive but not a knock out or a bombshell or something. Ever since I have arrived in SKA for working for the first time I have met very unsual situations, like sitting waiting for an appointment and then this Saudi man next to me starts to brag about his fortune and asking me if I am married. Another Pakistani colleague offers me a ride to a pharmacy which I understand against the traditions here. Even a young Saudi female patient tried to be seductive with me and I swear I am not making up things, not to mention a lot of men trying to get my number or giving me their number for trivial reasons. I am happily married so I am not looking for a partner or a lover and I treat others respectfully. What is wrong here I am confused??
