Muslim views on dating
Sub-Saharan Africa is the one region surveyed where most Muslims think women should have the right to decide if they wear a veil.The only country in the region where a majority supports a woman’s right to decide is Senegal (58%); by contrast, fewer than a third support giving women this right in Nigeria (30%) and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (29%).Similarly, in all countries surveyed in the Middle East and North Africa, about three-quarters or more say the same.
In most of the Southern and Eastern European countries surveyed, fewer than half of Muslims believe a wife must always obey her spouse.More than half of Muslims in Indonesia (76%), Thailand (61%) and Pakistan (53%) support equal inheritance rights, but fewer than half do so in Bangladesh (46%), Malaysia (36%) and Afghanistan (30%).Across the Middle East and North Africa, fewer than half of Muslims say sons and daughters should receive the same inheritance shares.Palestinian Muslims (43%) are most supportive of equal inheritance rights in this region, while support is low among Muslims in Morocco and Tunisia (15% each).Attitudes toward gender issues may be influenced by the social and political context in which Muslims live.
