Empowering Women with Islamic Roots-Based Quranic Interpretation
The Mariam Mosque aims to promote women's rights by interpreting the Quran through a women-liberating lens, drawing from the roots of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and early sources.
The Mariam Mosque's mission to promote gender equality and women's rights through a women-liberating interpretation of the Quran is rooted in the empowering status of women during the time of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The mosque's rejection of gender hierarchies and emphasis on universal values like mercy, forgiveness, and justice aligns with the Quranic idea of equality between genders.
The Mariam Mosque's efforts to challenge male-dominated readings of the holy text continues the tradition of the early Muslim women who were trailblazers in their fields and played pivotal roles in shaping Islamic history. By going back to our roots and studying the Islamic tradition, we can gain a deeper appreciation for the role of women in our faith and work towards creating a just and equitable world. The Mariam Mosque serves as a beacon of hope for Muslims who believe in promoting gender equality and empowering women, in line with the teachings of the Quran and the example set by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
