Description :

Some people have brought up the problem of “the masculinism of Islamic Law”, claiming that they are doing so in order for women to be defended and shown justice, and to clarify the injustice they have suffered as a result of legislations that have been influenced by the authority of men and their masculinism.

It is a baseless claim and a false statement the purpose of which is to defame our legal scholars and create misgivings about Islamic Law. In these pages, I have written some brief sentences that should benefit anyone eagerly looking for the truth, and should silence every hypocrite, those who are not pleased for men and women to live under the shade of Islam, happy with its divine legislations and laws.

Imam Muhammad at-Tawil :

He is Muhammad ibn Muhammad ibn Qasim ibn Hassan at-Tawil, rahimahullah. He was born in the city of 'Ein Baridah in Morocco. His first teacher was his father, Imam Muhammad ibn Qasim, who was a great Imam in the sciences of recitation of the Qur'an & other fields in the revealed law.

Imam Muhammad at-Tawil memorised the Qur'an whilst still a young boy and went onto study with another great scholar by the name of Shaykh Muhammad al-Arabi al-Masari. He then completed his studies at the renowned University Al-Qarawiyyin.

Amongst his teachers :

As a teacher of Fiqh and Usul from the University of Al-Qarawiyyin, the Imam has showed great courage in tackling some of the most thorny and controversial issues of this current time. The Imam is the marja' of the land, head preacher and teacher for the Moroccans' as well as North Africa. His forceful stance on issues immediately surrounding the Revealed Law has made him a hero and champion to all who love knowledge and the truth.
