Women are entitled to enjoy the same human rights and fundamental freedoms as other individuals. Under international human rights law, women may also be entitled to specific additional rights such as those concerning reproductive healthcare.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s declaration on human rights: Promises and pitfalls

This article explores the question of whether Islamic law and universal human rights are compatible. It begins with an overview of human rights discourse after the Second World War before discussing Islamic human rights declarations and the claims of Muslim apologists regarding human rights, along with challenges to Muslim apologetics in human rights discourse. It then considers the issues of gender and gender equality, feminism, and freedom of religion in relation to human rights. Keywords: Islamic law , universal human rights , Muslim apologetics , gender , gender equality , feminism , freedom of religion , Muslims. The question of whether Islam and universal human rights are compatible has been posed frequently by scholars in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

The relationship between Islamic law and international human rights law has been the subject of considerable, and heated, debate in recent years. This approach quickly ends in acrimony and accusations of misunderstanding. By overlaying one set of norms on another we overlook the deeply contextual nature of how legal rules operate in a society, and meaningful comparison and discussion is impossible. Chapters in this book Chapters in this book attempt to deepen the understanding of human rights and Islam, paving the way for a more meaningful debate.

Islamic Law and Human Rights

Some proponents of human rights are deeply sceptical of Islam and religion in general for that matter. They argue that the two are inherently incompatible. But this is not all there is to say about Islam and human rights.

Although ideas of rights and dignity of human beings can be traced to antiquity, modern human rights originated in the wake of the European Enlightenment. The American Declaration of Independence and the French Revolution ushered in processes that some years later culminated in human rights being proclaimed as universal entitlements of all individuals. Contemporary human rights theory is based on three axioms: one, that human rights are universal and belong to all individuals, irrespective of their religion, ethnicity, gender or sexuality; two, that human rights are absolute and innate, not grants from states or some metaphysical authority; three, that they are the properties of individual subjects who possess them because of their capacity for rationality, agency and autonomy. The UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights UDHR obliges states to protect the human rights of their populations and provide redress of their violation through appropriate judicial procedures. However, since the UN system recognises states as sovereign entities, the concomitant non-interference principle has, in practice, meant that the human rights situation varies from country to country, and even those countries that have formally ratified UN treaties on human rights can get away with violation of those commitments with formal protests from UN monitoring agencies. Moreover, some treaties permit partial derogation.

Эта тактика себя оправдала. Хотя в последнее мгновение Беккер увернулся, Халохот сумел все же его зацепить. Он понимал, что пуля лишь слегка оцарапала жертву, не причинив существенного ущерба, тем не менее она сделала свое .

 Где теперь это кольцо? - спросил Беккер. Лейтенант глубоко затянулся. - Долгая история.

Стратмора торжествовало победу.

Даже те, кто использовал электронную почту лишь для развлечения, занервничали из-за вторжения в их частную жизнь. Корпоративные программисты во всем мире озаботились решением проблемы безопасности электронной почты. В конце концов оно было найдено - так родился доступный широкой публике способ кодирования. Его концепция была столь же проста, сколь и гениальна.

Комната оказалась пуста. Пуст был и вращающийся стул Мидж. Звуки шли сверху.

 Да, панк, - сказала Росио на плохом английском и тотчас снова перешла на испанский.  - Mucha joyeria. Вся в украшениях.

Вся моя жизнь - это работа здесь, в Агентстве национальной безопасности. Сьюзан слушала молча. - Как ты могла догадаться, - продолжал он, - вскоре я собираюсь выйти в отставку.

Ты только представь себе, что будет, если об этом станет известно. - Директор в Южной Америке. - Извини. Я не могу этого сделать.
