Amy, I am not Muslim and never have been. I was reared a Christian, and as an adult continue serving Jesus Christ.

I’m curious: What made you think I am a Muslim?

Naomi, this is very interesting, and you may be right that this is of a different class than the Shite’s and the Sunni’s. I was shocked when I came across this article. I have done no research into it.

I’m excited about your new blog.

Sis. Shirley, I have a hunch that this woman Muslim preacher is from a different sect than Sunni’s or Shite’s.

My sister married a Muslim man from Baghdad several years ago…(my sister is the mother to Ron Alomar, I think you know the Alomar twins…Ron and Debbie’s children.)

He used to tell us about the way women were treated in Baghdad and there is no way they could be preachers. They couldn’t even teach or go outside without their face covered. They were very poorly treated. In fact he told us the women there could be done away with by their husbands and there was no questions asked. Of course this was under Saddam’s regime and I believe things are changing today.

Saudi women are free to persue such things I understand.

Anyway, I think it is very rare indeed and from a different sect to find a woman preacher in most Muslim countries.

JMHO, Love you

Sis. Naomi Dixon

Shirley, thank you for this very enlightening article. I must confess that I am one of those Westerners to whom the author refers. Everything I have ever read or been led to believe indicated suppression and deprivation of Muslim women. I am very glad from a humanitarian standpoint to learn that I have been wrong. I must now do some research of my own; I want to learn more. Thank you.

Daniel, yes, there are women preachers in the United States. Our organization, the United Pentecostal Church, ordains women into the ministry. However, there are actually very few women preachers among us.

Muslim women preachers in the United States? An interesting question, and one to which I have no answer. I would doubt it, but that is only a guess.

Research it, Daniel, and let me know.
