i've decided that i'm marrying her :)

anonymous asked:

so i'm very confused if islam has "feminist" roots or not. i've seen posts saying arab women had rights way before islam (owning businesses,being warriors something like that) but I've also seen many arguemnets that islam was unique in what rights it gave to women (right to divorce). i'm very confused because what i was taught in (my u.s. mostly christian) schools was the former. did the quran not give women the right to divorce and other things they didn't have before?

It doesn’t have feminist roots because a female slave couldn’t refuse her master AND the only way she could be freed was if her master decided on it or she had his child. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a man can marry four women but a woman can only marry one man. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because for a man divorces his wife he just needs to say “Talaq” three times for ANY reason whilst a woman must have a valid reason (if the reason is not absolutely necessary Muhammad has stated that the fragrance of Paradise will be forbidden to her) to divorce her husband which then needs to be approved by a judge. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a woman can not be a leader. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a woman can not leave her house without her husband’s permission. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a woman can not refuse her husband’s request for sex. 
It doesn’t  have feminist roots because a woman can not wear what she wants. 

I could literally go on forever. 

Look at the power the Greek women, the Spartan women, the Egyptian women even the Quraish (the people who lived in Makkah at Muhammad’s time ) women had prior to Islam.

So not Islam doesn’t have feminist roots nor was Muhammad a feminist. 

Why Sherlock Remembers George Clooney
  • *Sherlock is lying on Molly's sofa, while she's in her kitchen making tea. He emerges from his mind palace just as Molly's phone, which is on the coffee table, rings. Sitting up, he glances at it and sees her phone wallpaper. She arrives with the tea and ignores the call.*
  • Sherlock: *casually* Caroline's setting you up again?
  • Molly: *unsurprised* Yeah. I'm still traumatised from my last date with one of her so-called friends. *shudders*
  • Sherlock: *sips from his mug* I thought you were into that Hiddleston actor and that Cumberbatch actor?
  • Molly: *stunned for a second* Yeah. *turns to him* You remember that?
  • Sherlock: *ignores her question* So who's the new man on your phone wallpaper? I never pegged you as someone that's into much older men. And who's the woman?
  • Molly: *giggles* Oh, that's George Clooney. I've had a crush on him since 'ER'. *sees his blank expression* That was an American medical drama series. Anyway, he's also a director, screenwriter, activist, and humanitarian. And the woman he's with is Amal Alamuddin––well, Clooney now, since they just got married. She's a barrister that specialises in international law and human rights.
  • Sherlock: *mumbles* My brother might know her.
  • Molly: *excitedly* Really?! Do you think Mycroft could let me meet them?
  • Sherlock: *annoyed* For God's sake, Molly. You're not a teenager anymore.
  • Molly: What? *pouting* I just want to meet them and tell him how much I loved him in 'ER'. I'm not going to steal him from her.
  • Sherlock: *rolls his eyes* Let me guess... he's one of the reasons you decided to become a doctor?
  • Molly: *laughs* Well, not really. You know I've always wanted to be a doctor. But, for a time, I wanted to be a paediatrician because of George Clooney's character.
  • Sherlock: *gives her a small smile* Barts should be immensely grateful that you changed your mind.
  • Molly: They are. And their gratitude comes in the form of promotions and pay raises, which is really nice.
  • Sherlock: *clears his throat* Mycroft is also thankful. Probably.
  • Molly: So are your parents. Your mum knitted me a scarf for the first Christmas you were away dismantling Moriarty's network. And she's always inviting me to spend a weekend at their cottage.
  • Sherlock: *raises an eyebrow* Really? What about Mycroft? How has my brother expressed his gratitude for everything you've done for me and my family?
  • Molly: *shrugs*
  • Sherlock: *gasps in shock* What?! Not even a half-hearted 'thank you'?
  • Molly: Well...
  • Sherlock: *sits back, furious on her behalf* I don't even know why I'm surprised. But I can't believe that that pompous arse didn't even bother to thank you!
  • Molly: *rolls her eyes* Says the man who never thanked me until I told him to and who brought me out to solve cases with him when his best friend was mad at him.
  • Sherlock: You said you had a lovely day!
  • Molly: I did!
  • Sherlock: And our crime-solving day WAS always my way of saying thank you. John being angry with me was just a coincidence. *crosses his arms* At least I did something to thank you properly.
  • Molly: *smiles* And I appreciate it, Sherlock.
  • Sherlock: *uncrosses his arms* *stands up and takes his phone out of his pocket* I'm going to yell at him until he—
  • Molly: *sighs* He gave me updates while you were away!
  • Sherlock: *sits back down* But he never—
  • Molly: You weren't supposed to know. Anyway, he offered me anything in exchange for my help. But I only asked for updates. It wasn't even a regular thing. Just... when he noticed I'd been worrying too much about you or when something significant happened.
  • Sherlock: *puts his phone back in his pocket* Like when I got injured.
  • Molly: Well, yeah. He didn't tell me about Serbia or that you were coming back though.
  • Sherlock: Oh. *after a brief silence* Well, he was probably busy with my return.
  • Molly: I get that. Plus our reunion in the locker room wouldn't have been as... pleasant as it was if I'd known you were coming back.
  • Sherlock: *chuckles* Yeah, the look on your face screamed 'pleasant'.
  • Molly: *blushes* Shut up! *rolls her eyes and smirks at him*
  • Sherlock: *smirks back*
