Five things you should stop asking Muslim girls

There are many misconceptions surrounding women in Islam fostered by traditional media and manufactured stereotypes. Muslim women do not always get the opportunity to speak up about these fallacies.

In reality, is nearly unfathomable to generalise the women of a religion of 1.7 billion people.

These generalisations lead to statements and questions that many non-Muslims are begging to vocalise.

Here are five questions you won’t ever have to ask a Muslim girl.

1. You are not “that kind” of a Muslim, right?

If by that kind, you mean the kind that doesn’t need to justify or validate her faith based on the actions of an extremist minority is a completely inaccurate representation of my entire religion, then yes — they are that kind.

 

2. Are you oppressed because Islam oppresses women?

There is literally a Muslim saying that says “paradise lies at her feet,” elevating the importance of women. People misconstrue cultural norms and blend it with religion, when in reality they are two separate entities, do I look oppressed to you?

 

3. Can you be a Muslim and a feminist?

The two are not mutually exclusive. While many feel as though Muslim women need saving from the prison bars society believes we live behind, the truth is many Muslim women can be and are feminists who just like normal feminists advocate for the advancement of women.

Women don’t need groups like FEMEN to insult our religion in an attempt to impose their own White, Western, radical idea of feminism on us. We can be both.

 

4. Aren’t your parents strict on you?

And you’re probably making that assumption after meeting one Muslim girl’s parents. Others let their daughters come home at 3 a.m, travel around the world by myself and get piercings — everyone’s different.

 

5. Are you going to get an arranged marriage?

The idea that Muslim women have to get an arranged marriage is not only out-dated but inaccurate. This practice is still common in many Muslim countries, but again, it lies behind the whole idea of separating culture and religion.

Many countries that have similar cultures to Muslim countries but are not Muslim practice arranged marriage too — it’s not linked to religion so much as culture.
