Example text

In the same way that Islam addresses itself to the primordial nature of man, it also brings into the light of day the cosmic message which is written upon the leaves of trees, over the faces of mountains and in the starry heavens. That is why both the verses of the Quran and the phenomena of nature are called ayat and the Quran attests to both of these ayat, within the soul of man as well as within the created order as signs or portents of Allah as in the famous verse, "We shall show them our signs upon the horizons and within themselves, until it be manifest unto them that it is the Truth" ( XLI:53).

There have also been occasionally great female Muslim scholars over the centuries and the fact that there were not many more did not have anything to do with Islamic teachings. One sees the same situation in the traditional Christian, Jewish, Hindu or Buddhist worlds where in fact, no more female scholars were produced than in the Islamic world. The most important point to understand in this question is that Islam addresses the whole of the human species not only the male and that its teachings, although they may appear to be very patriarchal and masculine, also possess a strong feminine element.

On the contrary, he is leveled down in a sense to being the 'abd or servant of Allah, his grandeur coming not from himself but from his position as Allah's vicegerent and from being able to carry out the Will of the Supreme Master of the universe. It comes from his living in witness and in the remembrance of Allah and from his acting as a creature reflecting Allah's Wisdom and Power in this world. That is why man is addressed in Islamic texts as the most noble of creatures. All creatures possess a nobility in the sense that they are created by Allah and reflect an aspect of Divine Wisdom.
