In the Muslim world, female leadership is not a novel idea; in fact, there have been numerous Muslim female leaders throughout the history. In actuality, the barriers we discovered in the way of Muslim women leaders are entirely based on cultural beliefs and customs. Islam permits women to engage in all kinds of activities in which males are engaged in. No evidence shown religiously for restricting women, not even Quran prevents woman to participate in socio-economic domains. Normally males have historically been able to fill leadership positions in communities, whereas female leaders have traditionally been limited to private spheres and family-related concerns but this entire scenario is culturally conceived not religiously. Women should engage within political activities alongside their male counterparts in order to fulfill their important social and political roles. Segregation between men and women has historically existed in the public and private sectors of emerging societies. It is clear that women's engagement in politics and the economy is crucial for achieving the government's objectives in the rapidly evolving global economy. This study's qualitative technique will help to better understand Muslims' attitudes about Muslim women's engagement in the society effectively. This research also investigates how women become leaders in the Muslim world? As well as the particular demographic traits that influence how Muslim women are perceived as leaders?. The study's results also show how the public's perceptions are gendered towards Muslim women in leadership? And how demographic traits affect women’s status?
