In the words of Fatima Mernissi (2011), polyandry, which was banned by Islam, was degrading to men not women: “Group sex marriages, where the woman could entertain relations either with a group of less than ten men or consume a limitless number of partners, degraded men to animal-like anonymity.

Fatherhood, which implied that the woman limited her sexual desire to consuming only her husband’s body was a rare privilege, since children belonged to the mother’s tribe in general.” Anonymity of the father meant a man’s role was that of a mere sperm donor and a temporary sexual object.

What little we know are reports in Islamic texts, which are narrated to establish the new order, and a few archeological finds.

The result is that we have pamphlets, web links and books that preach women that “Islam truly liberated women” while there is no justification for the existence of women like Khadija bint Khuwalid, Hind bint Utbah, Asma Bint Marwan, Lubna bint Hajar, Arwa umm Jamil amongst others, if the general condition of Arab women was not more than mere chattel.

While generally men held the right to divorce women in pre-Islamic time, there are also records that indicate that women dismissed their husbands with an equal right: ‘The women in the pre-Islamic time, or some of them, had the right to dismiss their husbands, and the form of dismissal was this.

A more difficult task is to find out how women have been discussed in Islamic literature over the last 14 centuries (by men, to be precise). The words ‘Status of Women in Islam’ do not appear until the early 20 century.The resultant picture that emerges is that of a deeply patriarchal form of religious law rather than one that could have been more balanced, just and equal. 60): “That women felt Islam to be a somewhat depressing religion is suggested by a remark of Muhammad’s great-granddaughter Sukaina, who, when asked why she was so merry and her sister Fatima so solemn, replied that it was because she had been named after her pre-Islamic great-grandmother, whereas her sister has been named after her Islamic grandmother.” Furthermore, it can be argued that the ‘status’ of women in Islam is not equal either.Islamic jurisprudence supports classism and Quran differentiates between free and enslaved women as will be seen below.This incident was recorded and used by early scholars to show that pre-Islamic women were wrong in exercising their sexual independence and freedom and that the Islamic model of patriarchal marriage and sex was licit and superior.Fast-forward about eleven centuries, many parts of the world that were once colonised by Muslims (which shaped the Muslim narratives about women in Islam in those centuries) were being colonised by Europeans who scorned Muslims for their backwardness and seclusion of women.
