Question :

What are the conditions for holding the position of an Islamic judge, and is it permissible for a woman to assume that position as well as as positions of non-exclusive jurisdiction?


The Answer :

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of The Worlds, and may His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions. Books of Islamic jurisprudence have clearly stated the conditions for holding the position of an Islamic judge as well as positions of non-exclusive jurisdiction. On its part, Islam has honored women by being mothers, wives, sisters, daughters and aunts. However, the above mentioned positions don`t suit them since the Prophet(PBUH) said: "A people who make a woman their ruler will never be successful." [Reported by al-Bukhari].And Allah knows best.
