Abstract

This research is aimed at exploring and discussing the political positions of women in Islam in order to distinguish this great religion from other religions and western practices and approaches in addressing women affairs in general and the political aspects in particular. However, the research has also debunked the claim that Islam disregards women and attaches no consideration to their wellbeing and safeguard. In addition, substantial women political rights have been mentioned and discussed with a view to buttressing the assertion.
