PUBLIC LECTURE: CMSS Public Lecture
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 started attracting 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 as one 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 Masterís 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.
