    Denmark: Friday prayers held at Scandinavia's first Female-led Mosque

    The first female-led mosque in Scandinavia yesterday held its first Friday prayers.

    The historic occasion was attended by more than 60 women,the Guardian reported. There are very few women-led mosques in the world, and none in Scandinavia apart from the Mariam mosque in Copenhagen.

    Sherin Khankan (R) said the mosque hopes to "challenge patriarchal structures within religious institutions".

    The mosque opened in February, but until now had not been able to hold Friday prayers, an important part of the Muslim calendar. The service was led by two female imams, Sherin Khankan and Saliha Marie Fetteh, and the call to prayer was sung by a woman.

    Fetteh gave a sermon on the issue of "women and Islam in a modern world". Khankan told the Guardian the mosque hopes to "challenge patriarchal structures within religious institutions".

    "Islam has been male-dominated, women are still not equal in Catholicism and Judaism, and were only ordained in the Protestant faith [in Denmark] in 1948," she said."It is possible to change patriarchal structures but it's a long journey and we have met opposition."

    However, the women have also had a "very positive reaction" from people around the world, especially in Arab countries, Khankan added. There is "no valid religious criticism of us," she said. "We are on safe theological ground."

    "We represent a modernist, spiritual approach to Islam. We are seeking to create an alternative voice, without delegitimising others. We want the Mariam mosque to be a place where everyone can come, and we can flourish together. What happens in a mosque goes way beyond the mosque itself – it affects society."

    Last year, the first all-female mosque in the US was opened. The Women's Mosque of America in downtown LA seeks to "empower Muslim women and girls and better the Muslim and American communities at large."

    Founders Hasna Maznavi and Sana Muttalib said they wanted to encourage women to participate in all areas of life at the place of worship, including the call to prayer and the sermon."I want every woman to experience what it feels like to learn from a female religious authority in the mosque," Maznavi said.

    The mosque also wanted to challenge “patriarchal interpretations” of the Quran, confront growing Islamophobia and promote Islamic progressive values. “It is possible to change patriarchal structures but it’s a long journey and we have met opposition. But we decided not to focus on the opposition and instead speak about all the people who support us. We’ve had very positive reactions to the mosque – from Pakistan, Iran, Europe, Turkey, Arab countries,” Khankan said.

    Good catch and I was just checking her background since I smelled something fishy after her comment "Challenge patriarchal structures within religious institutions". A little research about this Female-Mullah is interesting. She is a mixed blood of some Muslim Syrian dad and Finn mother.

    Her FB profile has pics of her parents Also her husband might be a Paki based on his name,face and specially dress.Can anyone please check if he is from Pakistan?

    Not only our government should push for women to lead prayers,but also to LGBT imams to preach in mosques. Islam should be more open and tolerant.

    @Gabriel92 : So you want to fight Islam with Feminism and liberalization? :pound:

    The above two are major reasons why europe is where it is now.
    Islam is a convenient thing to blame, but the rot of europe comes from within, and spreads across the world.

    The gay pride is a disgrace,only reinforces the stereotypes aginst LGBT people and doesn't help fight homophobia at all. I agree on this. But LGBT people represent a very small percentage of the population.

    Don't act as if there were no LGBT people in india,russia or in the muslim world. But how many would dare to come out of the closet when homosexuality is punished by years in jail or even by death penalty ?

    @Gabriel92 : What are you trying to prove posting pics of West inspired indian faggots, high on the freedoom bug??

    Faggotry and some similar western nonsense is banned in india.

    What i was trying to say is that it is exactly because of those fictional things like gay pride and what not that what ever little culture you guys had, has been degraded to filth. This is why you are having crises in your european peninsula.
    I'm telling you this and you are posting pics of western sponsored events in india. :lol:

    I m not saying all problems are, of course not. When did I say that? Are you delusional??
    Some specific problems which have to do with the liberalization and globalization agenda of the west, that is the west inspired disease im referring to.

    I don't live in west dear gabby. I live in India. (Check the location space on the left.)
    Have you heard of proxies?? I use hide.me
    Sometimes I use ninjaproxy at those times I have a US flag.

    That's gonna be hilarious if EU can manage to do it.All LGBT can start going to Mosque and do Friday prayers.They can wear Rainbow Burqa as well and confirm that Islam is tolerant and peaceful.

    They can even raise a rainbow flag over Mosque which would mean LGBT/Feminist friendly Mosque and it would increase the Friday attendance for sure. :pound:

    :rofl: :rofl:

    This LGBT/Feminism and Islam are extreme spectrum of "rainbow". Too much of everything is bad so either its Liberalism or Autocracy.Far Left or Far Right.

    Check the rainbow version below... not sure whats written in camel font! :pound:

    In the most conservative muslim countries,they are closing their eyes and are allowing gay parties.
    Whatever you might say,the nightlife in saudi arabia is so "ou la la". Allowing this in the most saint place of islam ?

    I heard it's forbidden but somewhat "tolerated." Gay parties are organized in private and of course many are organized by the elites or princes however you want to call them.
    This happening in the most saint place of islam is just hilarious. The debauchery has reached such level there but muslims are blind.
