Know 50 Rules, Laws, Females in Islamic Saudi Arabia have to face all of their life

Saudi Arabia Follows Sharia, Islamic Law.

Women's rights in Saudi Arabia are defined by Islam

Every female must have a male guardian.

In court, the testimony of one man equals that of two women in Saudi Arabia.

Quran 4.3 - Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what Allah would have them guard.

Thus Guardian has full rights of over every activity of baby female or young female or married female or unmarried female.

Every female in Saudi needs Permission from guardian male for marriage as well as divorce.

Saudi Female needs permission from guardian male for travelling.

Women are generally discouraged from using public transport. It is technically forbidden,

Education; employment; opening a bank account; elective surgery for everything Female needs the permission of Guardian male.

Just like any Cow or Animal the ownership passes from one owner to another owner same way In Saudi Arabia an ownership of female passes from one MALE guardian to another guardian.

To understand the concept of Male Guardian I will tell you one example which really happened in Saudi Arabia. A female whose husband has died has to get the permission from her Son guardian to remarry. If he says no then she can not marry again.

Honor killing is very common in Saudi, A father killed his daughter when he saw his daughter using Face book.

Quran 24:31 = And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their khimar over their bosoms and not display their beauty

As per laws females should always cover their body from the males. Males should only see the hands and eyes of the female all the other body parts are banned. A male should not see them exception is blood relatives.

As per Law females must wear the niqab (veil), as well as a hijab (head covering), and full black cloak called an abaya.

Female clothing should not reveal anything to males. Clothing should be dull and boring.

As per law in Outside home male and female should not mix up exception is blood relations. Isolation of the principles of sex segregation is known as khalwa.

Many Saudi homes have one entrance for men and another for women.

Hotels do not allow and serve to single females if they are without guardian. As per law if female is not with the Guardian then she must show the National Identification Card to Hotel and then Hotel must and the hotel must inform the nearest police station of their room reservation and length of stay

Women in Saudi Arabia are registered on their father or husbands' identification card.

Males are allowed to marry 4 times but female is not ask about her marriage, it marriage of a female is a contract between her father and future husband.

Females are not allowed to marry Non Muslim male they need official permission for this.

In Saudi Arabia girls get married between ages of 9 to 15 maximum.

As per law male father has the ownership of kids , if child is below age 7 then female gets the custody of child only up to age of 7 then again ownership goes to the father.

In Rape Case rapist male is punished but innocent female is also punished who is raped. Thus females fear to report the rapes. In the Qatif girl rape case, an 18-year old victim of kidnapping and gang rape was sentenced by a Saudi court to six months in prison and 200 lashes. Judge said that she violated law; she was found in company of male and thus encouraged him to rape her. She is responsible for her rape.

In 2009, the Saudi Gazette reported that a 23-year-old unmarried woman was sentenced to one year in prison and 100 lashes for adultery. She had been gang-raped, become pregnant, and tried unsuccessfully to abort the fetus. The flogging was postponed until after the delivery.

In Saudi Arabia Religious Police is called as mutaween, A UN report cites a case in which two mutaween were charged with molesting a woman; the charges were dismissed on the grounds that mutaween are immune from prosecution

In 2008 Khamisa Mohammad Sawadi, a 75-year-old woman, was sentenced to 40 lashes and imprisonment for allowing a man to deliver bread to her directly in her home.

As per law when any female goes to government agency ,court of law or wants to buy property or sell property every female first obligated to bring two men as witnesses to testify to her identity, and four male witnesses to testify that the first two are credible witnesses, and actually know me. Thus she needs the six males to do a single transaction.

In Saudi Arabia female first needs to get the permission from guardian to do job and then find the job which is outside, normally opportunities are very less.

Saudi Female is not allowed to hold any powerful position; she is not allowed to become Judge. In simple language she should be always under the control of male.

According to Saudi Labor Ministry according to Sharia, a woman's work outside the house is against her fitrah (natural state).

Approximately 71% to 78% of females are literate, in comparison to 85% literacy rates in males. in 1970, only 2% of women were literate

Education of girls means the increasing the faith in Islam and Traditions.

All the above laws are right as per Saudi Females.

In 2008 Few Educated Saudi Females when demanded equality with the male’s then females in Saudi Arabia launched campaign against those females demanding them to sent them to Jail. The females also got the 5000 Signatures from girls 5000 Girl supported the demand that Females do not need equality with the male gender.

Females in Saudi Arabia Can not vote.

Females in Saudi Arabia can not get elected in any elections.

Females are not allowed to Drive in Saudi Arabia.

In Saudi Arabia if something has no answer in Quran then it becomes Haram. Unlawful activity. Example is driving of a car by female.

Government poll in Saudi Arabia said that or found that 80 percent of Saudi women do not think women should drive or work with men.

Poll also said that majority females do not think they should be allowed to hold any political office. They support that they do not have power.

Poll also said that Saudi Women support the customs and laws.

In Saudi Arabia normally females are not allowed to play sports or games.

Women could not vote or run for office in the country's first municipal elections, in 2005.

There are no women on the High Court or the Supreme Judicial Council.

In 2010, the government announced female lawyers would be allowed to represent women in family cases.

In 2009, the king appointed Norah al-Faiz a deputy minister for women's education, the first female cabinet-level official Norah Al-Faiz, the first female cabinet member, will not appear without her veil, appear on television without permission, or talk to male colleagues except by videoconferencing.

Norah al-Faiz a deputy minister for women's education opposes girls' school sports as premature.

Currently it is said that Saudi King is reformative and he is trying to change very very very slowly the Islamic laws or say he is trying to give freedoms to females without breaking the Laws of Islam.
