Feminism in the eyes of Islam
Problems Faced by a Woman
Islam does not state that female gender can not be the governing body or leader of any state or any political party, but being a leader, a woman, has to face many problems some of them I am going to discuss.
1. Pain During Menstruation
Governing a country or a state requires complete focus and huge amount of time to solve the problems of the state, while a woman during her menstruation feels discomfort. It becomes difficult for her to focus on the problems of the country.
Mood and Behavior
Some women experience emotional disturbances starting one or two weeks before their period, and stopping soon after the period has started. Symptoms may include mental tension, irritability, mood swings, and crying spells. Problems with concentration and memory may occur. There may also be depression or anxiety.
This is part of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and is estimated to occur in 20 to 30% of women. In 3 to 8% it is severe.
More severe symptoms of anxiety or depression may be signs of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). Rarely, in individuals who are susceptible, menstruation may be a trigger for menstrual psychosis.
Extreme psychological stress can also result in periods stopping.
2. Health Issues
Another problem for a woman is, that when she gets pregnant, she is in immense pain, so she cannot handle the affairs of the state with complete focus and determination.
Some abdominal pain during pregnancy is normal: After all, your organs are constantly shifting, your uterus is expanding, and your ligaments are stretching. And let's not forget morning sickness. But abdominal pain during pregnancy can be much more serious (though much rarer). Consult our guide to learn how to decode your aches and pains, determine when it's time to call the doctor, and get simple symptom soothers.
3. Focus of Mind
Governing a state often gets sensitive, and every wrong move can cause a great amount of damage to the state. A man can handle that kind of situation more properly, and he deals with emotions in a hasty manner. A woman cannot control emotions in a way that a man can handle.
“Women are more likely to develop major depression, anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder, all of which are related to emotional dysregulation,” Milnik said. “We hope that understanding the neural correlates of sex-specific emotional processing will be an important step towards elucidating the mechanisms linked to sex-dependent emotional dysregulation.”
The findings were published in the Journal of Neuroscience.
4. Parenting Problem
Another problem that a female Muslim leader has to face that she has to raise her children too. Parenting the children is her responsibility, till they can understand and differentiate between right and wrong is necessary for her. It takes time and concentration raising a child, while being a leader, she cannot spend enough time on her children and as a result of her carelessness, the future of her child and the future leader of the country will be ruined.
