Good for her
Is is sad that all the women of islamic countrys have little or no rights.God has given all of us men and women a free will. God did not put men in charge of women. We as women are responsable for our own salvation.. "Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the father but by me.." I suggest that all women in these countrys leave the men to their own device... Or better yet let them wear the burga see how they like to breath is there in the summer ,
Go girl, what's the problem with these idiot control freak Saudi men.they want to keep on living in the dark ages, curse the West, but like to use all the modern technology from the west and import all material goods from other nations. What do you people have beside oil, sand and camels.
I am a non-arab muslim female living in the UK.I have to say that growing up and learning about islam i have always favoured the SA arabs/people because the prophet (SAW) was gifted to the country. It was a unique country and the people who had seen the prophet (SAW) were the lucky ones. It is something to be proud of. However I have grown to learn and find that according to the quran all muslims no matter what race are equal. So i thought with that being true people of SA can be at fault, because we're humans, therefore we sin. I've heard and read many stories about the SA men, some good some bad, I have come to the conclusion that the people of SA are obviously no longer the beautiful righteous people they once used to be. And we have to accept that it's understandable because we're only humans. So what many people are doing now is using the past historical compliments as a blanket to cover up all the wrong doing and conflict in order to give a positive image to the rest of the world. When really there are people who are going against the peaceful way of living, the oppressive and mistreatment of women, the drinking and use of prostitution abroad, the filthy rich not giving money to the poor or the sufferers, money being used wrongly etcPeople fail to and avoid seeing their own selfishness and carelessness because the simply blinded by money and pride. Some of this generation of SA people are just like the generation of people who worshiped gold , money and idols. May Allah guide as to the path of righteousness. That is what I cry and pray for because muslims are being misguided in many different ways.
I also forgot to add that women are a special gift to men from God. It is a shame that men treat women so disgracefully Much can be argued about how women are treated all over the world, not just in the middle east. While men are too busy interfering with our God given right to grow, they are not looking about their own morals. I have been praying for women in oppressive situations for a long time. It is good to see that God hears me and that he is raising up women who say "Enough is enough!" Thank you sister for standing up for all the women in the world. God did not make men good and women bad. I really wonder how God is going to judge men for their treatment of this precious gift called woman that he gave to them.
Also, I forgot to say. I have been praying for this country and other oppressive countries for years. It is so good to have always known that God loves women too. God created us too and I don't believe that he created man good and women bad. This just does not make any sense. I am happy for this woman who has stood up and i just pray that this is just the beginning and that lots of other women will stand up and refuse to be treated so horribly. God is with you sister and all of my other sisters in this world. God is our strength and our justice and he will not allow us to continue to be mistreated. We are special and we are a gift to men. I really believe that a lot of men are going to answer for how they treated this special gift called woman that God gave to them.
It is great that this worman is standing up for her rights. I would like to know who polices the men. They go to different countries and spend all kinds of money on getting women in the bed and on drinking. I have seen it with my own eyes! What I don't understand that if God created everyone with the power to choose, then whose right is it to judge another and say that they are sinning. I thought that God was the only judge, and I don't think that he needs any help from us to do his job! We did not set the stars in the sky or cause the sun to come up every day. I believe that he can handle his own business of judging and we all should look about our own souls instead of telling someone that it is a sin to wear nail polish. Honestly......I have never seen a man say "Oh my goodness, look at your nail polish"! Nor have I ever heard him say that he was excited by some nail polish. And really.......men claim to be the head. I can agree with this. What I have a problem with is this......if the head is polluted, then how does he expect everything else to be right? What is the point of regulating a women's God given right to choose between what is right and wrong, but not doing anything about their own flaws. I wish that men would understand that we as women would be much more useful to them if we are free to be all that God enabled us to be. And let God be the judge!
Seems like somebody has a rich daddy

I am a Christian woman, so I guess I can judge without any bias. First of all it is not this policeman's fault to advice her to either cover her make up or leave the mall. It is his duty and that is what he is hired for. Second, this woman made a scene by provoking the police and at the same time filming him. It is obvious that it was planned.We all have to respect the laws of the countries we live in. If we don't like it, then we must try to change these laws by legal means. Anarchy leads to chaos and destruction of our societies and nobody is served by that.
so basicaly ure saying we should obey the law no matter how stupid the law is, yeah right... spoken like a true slave, your master must be proud
haha, she showed that primitive man whos the boss:)
Morally and legally the woman is RIGHT,Good for her. I laughed when i heard her comments to the barbarian male...he is NOT a man!
