I have been interested to learn about gender equality in the eyes of Islam because of how I see things in our desi culture and have watched a lot of videos of Ghamidi Sb on this topic including his old debates/discussion with students on Geo. If I have understood him correctly, he says that men and women are absolutely equal in creation but not in relationships.
Yaani Maa aur Betay mein Maa humesha bartari ke mukaam per hogi halaan k voh aurat hai. Issi tarah Shaadi, agli naslon ke liye Allah ki aik ghair mamooli scheme hai, jis mein kayi zimmedariyon ke sath Allah ne sarbarahi mard ko di hai. Aurat jo kamaaye uss per koi zimmedari nahi hai ghar per denay ki, etc.
But, I was just listening to him on facebook where he’s speaking to Jibran Nasir on his nikkah where he says “…aur yeh bilkul barabari ki sata ka rishta hai, dono ko Allah ne insaan banaya hai, aur insaan ki haisiyat se dono ko fazeelat bakhshi hai…”.
So I am just curious has his view on this changed? Or did I misunderstand him and there is no contradiction?
