    I'd like to see more mens issues being discussed. It would be great for men to engage in discussions in a friendly, open and honest forum

    I would love to see a Muslimah spotlight showcasing the work being done but Muslims in the community. Would also like to see more things on the Carribbean Muslim community.

    How to deal with mental abuse from your own parent. Respecting parents is a huge concept in Islam, but what if our parent’s “best” is harmful. Is it right to leave, or remain with toxic behaviour and endure it.

    Would be good to see content around bridging the gap between born Muslims and new/convert Muslims within our communities and how we can support and understand each other. Zahra E

    I am relatively new to this but would like to see more about women success stories, be it in career and leadership roles or stories of survivors of domestic abuse. I want to see relatable women who will inspire others. The focus of this should be to acknowledge challenges, give guidance on how to overcome them and more importantly to celebrate success.

    I would like to know how Muslim women understand and stand in relation to feminism. Do you see feminism as a product of western thought which is alien to you? Do you see feminism as a system of beliefs / movement that can empower you? Do you see feminism as a system of beliefs that could be accommodated within Islam? Would you consider yourself an Islamic feminist? Why? Would welcome your thoughts. Thanks.

    Salaam I would like to see sisterly discussions on how Muslim women can progress in politics, and what training and resources could be provided during the section process and funding access to grants. A forum could do networking events around these topics specifically. 💕

    Hi, new here! Very interested to explore the page more and see what topics will be discussed in the future. I think “topics/issues” that could be explored is women in western society. Perhaps role models, discussions of experiences, faith, women of colour. Maybe in different roles/sectors. Women of colour in history. Or throughout, usually very interesting but is given light too. This could be linked or separate issue of Culture and communities. Thanks for reading!

    I would like to see more role-modelling activities, such as highlighting Muslim women in niche careers like aerospace engineering or handling PR of well-known brands. So many Muslim women are smashing ceilings and I feel we need to hear about them some more!

    I would like to see more topics such as tips on how the younger generation can discuss taboo topics with the older generation. Sometimes it can be difficult to get through to them as they can be very set on their ways and mindset. Also for someone like me I have been raised not to talk back or disrespect an elder and sometimes when you try to get your point across it can be seen as "disrespectful".

    "What issues/topics would you like to see explored in more detail on the MWN Hub?" Big issue for me is the number of men, Asian men, in local government roles and how too many of them do hardly anything to improve people's lives! So I would like to see MWN Hub discuss the issues around a woman's place in local politics. We need to break the decades old cycle of the same, incompetent men being voted into roles that they clearly have no interest in! Many are there for egotistical reasons and their intentions are wrong. People are suffering, areas look a mess and crime amongst the youthful is rocketing! Enough is enough!

      I agree and we should fix that by getting more women to get involved in politics - but credible women and not just women who also don't do anything, or just agree with the men or just do it for status etc. So i think you should become a councillor :-)

    I would love to see more written about the taboo of abuse in all cultures, but especially the South Asian cultures. Both sexual and physical advise, between trusted adults and kids in their care and between partners etc. I also feel more needs to be said about the role of women on society, we need to rid the feeling that we are babymakers and raisers and thats it. I'm not belittling motherhood in the slightest, but I feel when we are reduced to our wombs it is insulting. I also feel like there needs to be advice on scammers and catphishing. It is so prominent and so many vulnerable woman fall victim to it!

    I would love to be able to discuss Grief and Mental Health explored in more detail. To be able to discuss these issues particularly from an Islamic perspective. I'm aware of Islamic advice given regarding these problems, but what if this is not working for some??

    I would like the issue of personal beliefs in a Islam to be explored. I do believe you should follow all aspects of a religion but the fact that I don’t doesn’t make me a non- Muslim. I am fed up of people using non complain CW as a reason to have a go at disability. It’s as if they are saying” no wonder you have these problems, you are not fearing God and following Islam down to a T. If you begged and said sorry for your sins Allah is merciful. I am sick to death of it. When I feel upto praying, I pray from my heart and I believe Allah holds more value to that than people being afraid of him.

    I think the MWN does a great job with discussing issues that women experience. I have found the content on the website invaluable as a school teacher and have used the resources on here to generate conversation and discussion with young, female Muslim students. I love the articles you have on here, found it incredibly inspiration and felt a lot of the contemporary issues that are sidelined easy to deal with as a consequence. I know that there are a lot of our young people are gifted and talented and therefore should be sought and given a platform to write about the issues from their point of view – not just whether things are good or bad, but to really analyse the issues, talk about what they think are the root of the problems, what they think the solutions are etc. I think our young people are learning from their parents and have maybe a different type of courage and insight that could be celebrated. Similarly, I think a lot of our Muslim female adults who are at home everyday, contributing so much towards their family but little for themselves need attention. The life of an immigrant mother. Who gives so much but receives so little. Given little value because they didn’t have a choice about who they married and how their lives are going to be planned out. They are a part of someone else’s plan. It’d be nice to hear about how they deal with normal day to day issues and what their feelings and thoughts are about the world problems. Perhaps other mothers could learn from them and find new ways to deal with issues. Finally, I agree with Grannybibi’s comment below. I am really passionate about strategies on how to combat loneliness of elderly people. It’d be great to help young people make time and reflect on how they spend their time with the elderly people. Also, maybe a section on strategies on how to educate men about women’s issues in a realistic and gentle manner. Thank you for reading.

    I am new so I don't know what topics you cover however I would like to see coverage on how a lot of Muslims mistake cultural traditions as religion and how this impacts the west's perspective on Islam. I'd also like to see more attention on disabilities and the disabled Muslim community.
