Musawah Vision for the Family proposes a model of Muslim family relations that upholds equality and justice for all family members and promotes the well-being of families and society. The document outlines how and why we must rethink notions of male authority and guardianship (qiwamah and wilayah) over women on the basis of Qur’anic values, Muslim legal tradition, human rights principles, and the lived realities of women and men.
