Hi Hubbers, Kindly let me know your comments regarding my article "Could a Mixed Community be Genuinely Accepted in Islam?".
The link to the article in question is https://hubpages.com/religion-philosoph … y-in-Islam
This was a very interesting and well written article, but the title does not exactly match the content. The article appears to concern the relationships between Muslim men and women, so the word "segregation" is misleading.
Also, although I see the reason for them, you have many quotes in the article, it's never a good idea to quote a great deal in an article that is supposed to be totally original. This likely would be a reason for its not being featured.
I would also shorten the capsules. Also, one of your references is gibberish and the other is from Facebook. Facebook is not what most people would consider to be a credible source for quotes.
The real meat of this work is the fact that Muslim women should be treated with respect by all Muslim men. I would concentrate my writing on that thought and give my own reasons for thinking this should be the case, citing, for example, how to do otherwise destabilizes the Muslim society.
I think you're on to something writing about the Muslim culture and think it would make a good niche for you that would probably bring in a ton of views. Many people are curious about Muslims, and you could be the person who opens the door to understanding with your knowledge and writing abilities.
thank you for your thorough review, I really do appreciate it as you see, the issue I am touching here is the segregation between males and females (which drives harsh societies to deprive women of their freedom) on the pretext of following religious rules! I had to have many quotes as my opinion to refute their claim, without quoting from the Quran and narrating from the Islamic history would be of no value. thank you for your useful remarks and good luck
Per the quotes: I totally understand, but what you need to understand is that using a lot of quotes in the text of a hub is frowned upon. Why not sum up what was said instead of quoting directly? I think doing that will help you to become featured and then moved to a niche site.
Also, in the US, the word "segregated" normally is viewed in terms of race, not sex, which is why I suggested you word the title differently.
But segregation of sexes is common among Muslim communities, even in western countries like the US and UK.
You are totally right when speaking about general issues, however, I think when dealing with a sensitive issue, quotes will be more suitable, for if I sum up what was said, people may think that this is my own understanding and my own interpretation of the Quran and history, and my article will be regarded as a subjective opinion, which is not the case. BTW, I have removed the facebook reference (as you advised) and inserted the Quranic reference instead. My article is already featured and I am trying to submit it to a network site. Indeed, segregation of sexes started to spread in some harsh Muslim communities, but it is not common in all societies; it is not common at all in Turkey and many places in Egypt and other Arab countries.
Sad to say, it's becoming all too common, especially in Muslim schools in the UK. It's not supposed to happen, but it does.

thank you for your input, I totally agree that many things in the world today are not supposed to happen, and they are having legitimacy because they are done in the name of a certain value like following a certain creed or fighting terror. Forcing segregation on the pretext of following Islam is the same. I read the article you sent and was surprised that Batool El Toma did not provide the reason behind why women would pray behind men at the time of the prophet. That has nothing to do with showing less respect for women but actually, respect to their being. Muslims pray with actions, such as kneeling, as well as prostrating so you could imagine how some men would react to a lady in front of them bowing, hence the men in front, then women. In addition, they were praying in one area. It is worth mentioning that there is no segregation when praying by walking around the Holy K'aba in the Holy Mosque of Mecca. I also could not assimilate Nikita Malik's point of view, as she considered that every Muslim woman prefers segregation! I think that what we need is to go to the origin and core of religions, we will find them all but one religion that calls for the respect of liberty and dignity of men and women alike, rather than enforcing banning and rules on societies.
If it is already featured, why did you ask for opinions about it? I assumed that you were trying to get it featured. As for the quoting issue, one can always say things such as "as per....the situation is this". But, this is your article, not mine, and hopefully it will do well with the quotes in place.
