Partisipasi Politik Perempuan dalam al-Quran

Muhammad Al-Caff, Siti Zinatun


The  issue  of  women’s  political  participation  rarely  finds  a  place  in  the  Sunni  and Shiite’s  conventional  jurisprudence  thought,  to  imply  that  women  should  not  have a political office and that their duties are solely rooted in the domestic sphere alone. In this case, one of the problems that deserves to employed in scholarly studies is the political rights of women according to the Qur’anic paradigm. Through the method of  al-tafsīr  al-jāmi’,  this  paper  attempts  to  provide  the  scholarly  debates  concerning women’s political participation based on certain Qur’anic verses. This research shows three different major views concerning women’s political participation; the absolute prohibition,  the  absolute  permission,  and  the  alternative  view. All  are  based  on  the interpretation of certain Qur’anic verses. The second is considered as more compatible with  the  principles  of  democracy.  However,  the  significance  of  the  different  views concerning  women’s  political  participation  in  the  Qur’an  lies  on  the  fact  that  it  has the  holistic  and  multi-layered  views  on  women’s  political  participation  within  each particular contexts accross the time, not a monolitic view limited to one alternataive.
