I was browsing through the Guardian’s Comment is Free, which is a collective group blog, bringing together regular columnists with other writers and commentators representing a wide range of experience and interests, to find that they have recently added a Saudi columnist to their elite. The columnist is Iman Al Qahtani, who writes a weekly column for Al Watan. The Guardian says Al Qahtani is a journalist, writer, and activist. She graduated from the college of art in Riyadh in 2002 with a BA in English literature and science, and has worked at several newspapers in Riyadh. I am very proud of Al Qahtani, and have no doubt her participation on such interactive forum would be good for her, as well as the rest of Saudi women.

  1. I’m a newcomer to your site and I think it looks nice. However, the article that you’ve posted by the Saudi woman is not very good, and she seems to be complaining more than making an educated argument. Besides, I thought that if you’re suppose to be talking about Islamic subjects that one would have to take both the Qur’an and hadith together? Additionally, one should rely on tafsir. Other than that, I think that it is good for a Muslim woman, whoever she may be, to write about her own thoughts and opinions on subjects, but my criticism would be that she should be a bit more informed about the subject and the arguments surrounding it, then make a case. Otherwise someone can say that she is simply whining and has no real evidence to back up her claims.
