Why Two Women Witness??
During the course of Dawah a question which repeatedly arises is that concerning the “Position of Women in Islam”. Muslim scholars have been able with great success to demonstrate the true position of Muslim women; especially of women’s liberation in the advent of Islam. The Islamic ruling on issues such as inheritance, the right to earn, the right to own property etc. have reinforced this position and have been prescribed by Allah (SWT) long before western nations even thought of such concepts.
However, when presented with the question of two women witnesses in the place of one man, the answers so far provided are unsatisfactory. Hence, the need to investigate this issue.
