A state of psychological bondage precludes a state of freedom and is reflected in physical bondage or attachment to one form or another, even if the attachment is an attachment to wealth, religious institution, ritual, or dogma. This preclusion of freedom is akin to darkness that indicates an absence of Light.

This preclusion of freedom is akin to darkness that indicates an absence of Light. Attachment can only be to form/s as attachment assumes separation, not Reality. Reality is One and All-Inclusive of all the parts. The importance of this understanding has direct implication on the empowerment of Women. A woman cannot be in a state of Islam yet BE bonded or attached to any person or form. Islam requires the complete relinquishment of the Ego Identity and the consequent relinquishment of all attachments and bondage. To be a Muslim is to BE Free; a physiologically and physically attached person is not free, and thus, not a Muslim. Women, thus, cannot in any circumstance be bound or attached to any form or external authority over their selves and be Muslim. To be a Muslim, a woman must abide in a state of psychological and personal freedom. This is the standard Islam set through the Quran. This is the standard Muhammad exemplified for women through his interaction with and manner toward women. This is the standard illustrated by Muhammad’s various wives and daughters seen through the contextual lens of 7th Century Arabia. Complete personal autonomy/freedom is the pre-requisite of Islam and the God-given right of every human being.
