Upon Reflection[edit]

Upon reflection, this article actually does not in anyway deal with the Roles ascribed to the genders in Islam. it needs a complete Re-write. --Irishpunktom\talk 11:35, August 31, 2005 (UTC)

Reworking the Article[edit]

I think this is a very crucial page. Although it is touched on in Women and Islam, that article cites this page as well. I would like to tackle a serious reworking of the page. Any suggestions, comments, or critiques would be highly appreciated. Cebrown721 5:25, January 30, 2014

Other gender section[edit]

Is there a source for the quote? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.148.26.78 (talk) 01:59, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Plan for reworking the article[edit]

In my reworking of the article I would specifically add the differences between the Salafiyyah and Wasatiyyah points of view on gender roles, and I will back up my statements using quotes from the Quran and the hadith as well as scholars like Shaykh Muhammad al-Ghazali and Shaykh Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Influences from the West and from cultural practices from the Arab Peninsula will be mentioned. Further discussion will include expected behavior regarding sexual behavior, drive, activities and orientation, as well as gender relations, dress, marriage and divorce, rights and sense of responsibility. Not all of these will have their own sections as many topics overlap. Masculinities will also be mentioned and have its own section as the article title does not imply exclusively female gender roles.

I continue to ask for suggestions from other Wikipedia users, and I will eventually ask for a review and comments from the Teahouse. A critique from anyone with an Islamic background and suggestions for good passages from the Quran would be very appreciated.

An outline of the article I intend to write:

1 Family (incorporating some of this into “Tradition gender roles”)1. Classical viewpoints (adding new section) 1.1 Salafiyyah (adding new sub-section) 1.2 Internationally (adding new sub-section) 1.2.1 The United States (adding new sub-section) 1.2.2 Malaysia (adding new sub-section) 1.2.3 The Middle East (adding new sub-section) 2 Gender roles in prayer and worship (deleting this section) 2. Liberal viewpoints (adding new section) 2.1 Wasatiyyah (adding new sub-section) 2.2 Effects of globalization (adding new sub-section) 2.3 Western influence (adding new sub-section) 3 Gender roles within marriage (deleting this section) 3. Traditional gender roles (adding new section) 3.1 Cultural traditions (adding new sub-section) 4 Other genders (deleting this section) 4. Sexuality and gender roles (adding new section) 5. Masculinities (adding new sub-section) 5 See also (adding new links) 6 References (using more and different sources)

Edits to page[edit]

Cebrown721, very good edits done to this article! You have organized the information well and added a lot of needed content. One suggestion to add to this article would be linking to other Wikipedia articles. Overall however, I think you are doing good work to an underrepresented article.

Great job so far! I think you've made some great edits as well as organized it more concisely. For the final contribution I might add some more information about different countries like Saudi Arabia, and consider any and all appropriate ways to phrase Islamic names and rituals. I would also consider discussing how gender roles have changed!Njeri Muturi (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 01:46, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
