From Egyptian-American cleric Muhammad Syed Adly, Director, Islamic Center of Columbia, South Carolina on the status of women:
“Man is the head of her, the owner of her and the ruler, and he is the one who corrects her when she goes astray. That’s because men are better than women.”
“A woman cannot leave the house without asking the permission of her husband.”
“Because women are as prisoners in your hands or in your house; she is in a form of captivity.
“We don’t live by the American way; we live by the Islamic way.”
