Women’s Political Role in the Movement of Islamic Awakening
(Comparing Indonesia and Iran)
Dina Y. Sulaeman, M.Si
Today, we, all the believers, must be in unrest witnessed how the world is filled with immorality and injustice. In social life, we see how pornography, sex, and drugs rampant have became an extension of the hands of Satan to destroy mankind. In economic life, the system of usury dominates the world economy, including the Islamic world. World economic institutions such as IMF, World Bank, or WTO dictate the pace of the economy in the Islamic world. As the result, Islamic world sinks in economic and financial crisis. The rich get richer. The poor get poorer, even their lives are not valued anymore. Wars flare up in various parts of the world, most of the victims are Muslims. Lives of ummah now lay at the feet of the industrialists of war, arms dealers and global oil companies.
For the last 150 years, Muslim thinkers have identified that in order to get out of this situation, Muslims must return to Islamic identity. They are trying to raise awareness of the ummah to to face the challenges in the framework of Islamic movements. Therefore, Islamic awakening movement is defined as a movement to reject all kinds of economic oppression, political, cultural, and military carried out by the enemies of Islam. Goals to be achieved through the Islamic awakening movement is the return of the Muslims’ dignity and the freedom from political, cultural, and military hegemony of the enemies. These goals can only be achieved if the Muslim world join hands and walk together in harmony.
Since half of moslem population and human resources is comprised of women, the role of women in the Islamic awakening movement is a necessity. In this paper, the authors will describe the importance of political role of women in the context of this movement.
