    Default Muslims, Why aren't women allowed to drive cars in Saudi Arabia?

    @Epithelium Appetence Because they use Islam as their justification, so I was just wondering what other Muslims think.
    @Islam Not according to Shaima Osama

    @Islam That begs the question, "Why not take off the niqab?"

    The scholars have issued fatwas stating that it is haraam because of the negative consequences that may result from it.

    This applies completely to the land of the two Holy Sanctuaries. With regard to other countries, the matter should be referred to trustworthy scholars for they know their countries’ situation best.

    Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

    People have spoken a great deal in the al-Jazeerah newspaper about the issue of women driving cars. It is well known that it leads to evil consequences which are well known to those who promote it, such as being alone with a non-mahram woman, unveiling, reckless mixing with men, and committing haraam actions because of which these things were forbidden. ***Islam forbids the things that lead to haraam and regards them as being haraam too.


    *** I think this part is controversial .Where should we stop?This is not God's law it is an interpretation and a fatwa. we can reject or accept it but for saudi woman they should obey the sheiks

    Because women are just one group out of many that Islam is bigoted against.

    I'm not a Muslim or a Saudi Arabian, but wouldn't this be best addressed to Saudi Arabians, not Muslims?

    Because they wear niqabs and that obstructs vision, posing a security issue.
    They have that law in effect to protect their women, who they cherish.
    And the women aren't complaining. They love having drivers take them everywhere.

    It has very little to do with Islam, tho.

    Because a 10 year old child could drive a car wearing a burka.
