:salam2:wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu...
i've never actually thought about it this wayand it did kind of convinced me that women may BE allowed for leadeship...but howcome we don't have any women prophets.also what about ayah:
وَلَهُنَّ مِثْلُ الَّذِي عَلَيْهِنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ ۚ وَلِلرِّجَالِ عَلَيْهِنَّ دَرَجَةٌ ۗ وَاللَّـهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ(surah Albaqara.ayah228)
and they have rights similar to those against them in a just a manner,and the men are a degree above them,and ALLAH is MIGHTY,WISE.
so doesn' that mean NOT EQUAL in everything.here ALLAH says HE's wise?are we wiser??or am i missing something
Women probably weren't prophets because back then no one would have ever listened to a woman.
Maybe there were women messengers? We don't know who all the many messengers there were, unless it says somewhere they couldn't have been? If it does say that somewhere, I'd be interested to know.
