2. Thank you very much for your reply, it was very interesting

I has certainly given me a lot of follow up reading to.

Yes, I do agree that Muslim scholars certainly have contributed greatly to the early Renaissance times and their contribution often goes unrecognized, but what I will never understand about one of the worlds greatest religions is their treatment and attitude to fifty percent of their population, i.e. the female half.

They .are still centuries behind the rest of the world in the treatment of the their female citizens. Those communities that you describe as living in a peaceful setting are able to do so because they are run with very little input from the female half of of the community.

None of the major religions give the respect and accolades that are due to their female members and Islam has the most work to do to in catching up. Which is a shame because it it has so much to offer
