Event Details

Karamah: Muslim Women Lawyers for Human Rights is excited to announce, during Domestic Violence Awareness month, this inaugural Presentation on our second paper in our series on “Debunking the Myth,”. This incorporates our gender-equitable Islamic jurisprudence on religiously significant issues that are of special concern to Muslim women. Director of Sexuality Education and Training with HEART Women and Girls, Sameera Qureshi, will join Karamah's Founder Dr. al-Hibri and Associate Director of Research Ghada Ghazal as we present our whitepaper and the real world implications of the hadith (saying of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)) that Muslims interpret as requiring wives to accede to their husbands’ sexual demands, or be cursed by angels.
