IEA’s achievements commendable as thousands of women inheritance cases handled

As many as 4,500 women’s inheritance cases have been addressed across the country, since the establishment of the Islamic Emirate, the country’s Ministry of Order to Virtue and Prohibition from Vice said the other day. Mohammad Faqir Mohammadi, the Deputy Minister of Order to Virtue and Prohibition to Vice said that officials of the ministry have handled over 4,500 women’s inheritance cases since the re-establishment of the Islamic Emirate in the country, as during the past regimes, no attention had been paid in this regard. The Deputy Minister, according to reports, added that the Islamic Emirate was committed to ensuring the rights of all citizens, especially women, all over the country. He said that the Ministry of Order to Virtue and Prohibi tion from Vice of the Islamic Emirate has granted inheritance to nearly 4,600 women and other cases have been referred to the court and that under the Islamic system, the rights of all citizens, particularly women, are understood and their rights will not be neglected. The Islamic Emirate comprehends the rights of all Muslims, Afghans, and especially women, and is committed to women’s rights. This is a fact that in Afghanistan as a religious country, women are still mostly, unaware of their real religious rights and there is a need for the Islamic Emirate and the entire religious scholars to increase efforts in educating the masses about women’s inheritance countrywide. Under the holy Islamic Sharia, women have to reach their rights to inheritance, education, work and choosing their life partners through adopting legal marriage. This is the responsibility of religious scholars to promote public awareness about women’s inheritance everywhere in the country, particularly in the areas, where men deny this inalienable right. On the other hand, forced marriage, practices such as giving women and girls in marriage as compensation and denial of fathers and other authorized men of the households relating to girls’ marriage and grabbing their authority for marriages are some things seriously banned in the holy Islamic sharia. Traditional theory of Islamic jurisprudence recognizes four sources of Sharia which are the Holy Quran, Sunnah (which is a type of oral tradition narrated through a chain of transmission and recorded and classified as authentic hadith), Ijma (issues understood as Ijma-ul-Ummah – a whole community consensus, or Ijma-ul-Ummah – a consensus by religious authorities); all accept and welcome the women’s inheritance of one share and two shares given to men from the legacy of their ancestors have already passed away. This is one of the biggest achievements of the Islamic Emirate which is implemented in the country’s some remote parts, after its resumption of power nearly three years ago. Islam has granted the rights of women and girls but there is a need for the implementing organs, which are not operational in the country. M. Noor Khahani
