Question

Why is it difficult for women to study their
own religion in a Muslim country and it is
easy for brothers? I mean it should be easy
for every Muslim, so that people could have
a knowledge about their religion.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that
Muhammad, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, is
His slave and Messenger.

Islam has given the woman the right to study
and be educated in a similar way to men.
Anas , may Allah be pleased with him, said
that the Prophet said “ Seeking
knowledge is obligatory upon each and every
Muslim”. [ Ibn Maajah; Albaani said that it is
an authentic Hadeeth ]
The saying of the Prophet “Upon each
and every Muslim” includes males and
females.

As seeking knowledge is permitted by the
Sharee'ah, then there is no harm for a
woman to go out to seek knowledge as long
as she adheres to the Islamic requirements;
like observing Hijab, avoiding mixing (of
males and females), avoiding speaking with
men in a soft or attractive manner, and
having her husband's permission.

There is no difficulty for a woman to learn
the aspects of her religion. The matter is
easy and the ways of seeking knowledge are
many. In fact, there are many recorded
materials on religion that a woman can listen
to at home, and she can also go out to seek
knowledge by attending the lectures
organized by women, or the general lectures,
and so on, but with the religious
requirements already mentioned.
Allah knows best.
