The Quran puts absolutely no restrictions on the participation of women in the Islamic government. Some of the key tasks of the Islamic government mentioned in the Quran include establishment of the socio-economic system of salat and zakat, commanding/implementing what is lawful (al-ma’roof) and proscribing/preventing what is unlawful (al-munkar)[1] according to the Islamic Law. The Quran clearly says that men and women are allies and associates (Auliya) of one another in this regard and both of them take part in establishing the socio-economic system of salat and zakat, implementing of what is lawful (al-ma’roof) and proscribing what is unlawful (al-munkar)[2]
