Equality Is Godly
Saudi Arabia is lifting women driving ban. This means the ban was never about God’s commandment but rather men’s. Obviously women have been the subjects of men’s undue control as far back as we can tell. Enough is enough. For this reason, I urge all Saudis (men and women) as well as Muslims all over the world to immediately demand the removal of all men imposed restrictions that interfere with their human rights and religious freedom, especially that of Muslim women. “There shall be no compulsion in the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong…” 2:256. “And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed – all of them entirely. Then, [O Muhammad], would you compel the people in order that they become believers? No soul can believe, except by the will of God, and He will place doubt on those who will not understand.” 10:99,100.
