SEMINAR: CMSS Seminar: Domestic Violence and Islam
Domestic violence is a global issue considered to be a heritage of the patriarchal system. While domestic violence is not a new problem, it has only attracted attention comparatively recently. Even with women being more powerful than ever, the modern world is still faces this issue.
In Islam, the Qurían and prophetic practice clearly illustrates the relationship between spouses. It elaborates that the relationship is based on unconditional love, tenderness protection, peace, kindness, comfort and mercy. Furthermore, Prophet Muhammad himself set direct examples of these ideals of a marital relationship in his personal life.
In this seminar Rehan Ahmad, Pakistani scholar and writer, points out Islamís three solutions to overcome domestic violence. Ahmad is one of the most read contemporary writers of Urdu language and his books have been translated into multiple languages. His book "When Life Begins" is one of Pakistanís best sellers.
Ahmad holds a Master's in Islamic Studies and Computer Sciences and a Master of Philosophy in Social Sciences. His PhD explored Dawah Methodology Literature of the 20th century. Ahmad is a research fellow at Al-Marwrid, a foundation for Islamic research and education, and is the editor of the monthly Islamic magazine, Inzaar. He is also the director of an institution with the same name that works towards achieving social, ethical and religious reforms in Pakistani society.
