Politics and business are traditionally considered to be the "spheres" of men. Men are more prevalent in politics than women and have a more authoritarian, restrictive, and antagonistic worldview. Political participation has changed in various ways over the past few decades, not just due to domestic political system changes but also to global economic conditions. Contributing in politics is a way to uphold one's social responsibility. Voting in elections, serving as a lawmaker or judge, or holding the office of head of state are all examples of political participation. Women in Islamic history have had role models for each of these roles. Women's organizations and feminist groups have shown a significant amount of imagination and creativity in their participation in politics due to their growing awareness of the importance of participating in the decision-making process to advance improvements to the social condition of women. It should be observed that Allah did not specify a specific function for all males or all females in this instance. Nothing in the Qur'an suggests or argues for a single role or the exclusive explanation of a set of roles for each gender. Thus, this allowed people to choose the duties and positions most appropriate for their conditions. Sustaining fairness and equal opportunity through common conversation, concern, reflection, and sympathy between those impacted by choice allow for this off-course. This essay aims to look at and stress female empowerment and political participation, a historical look at the importance of women's participation from a gender perspective in Islam, and the choices and realities Pakistani female politicians face.
