Why Muslim man cannot sit beside Muslim women in a Mosque what is the main reason ?

Its because that Muslim men cannot control themself. Men and women can sit side by side in a church and nothing fishy or molesting happen .

Update:

even though some girl wearing sexy clothes although it's actually not allowed we as a men do not switch our attention to the girl but concentrate on what the father has to said. Unless that person have are cheecky that can't be blame.

    so that you concentrate on God and not on the men and women around you.

    A woman does not need a man behind her looking at her backside.

    We are there to pray not to hook up.

    Muslim women are happy to be away from the men. And yes women do go to the Masjid. I am there many times a week and so are many of my sisters.

    During the services, the people prostrate themselves. Now, if the men and women were mixed up, then the women would have to be subjected to bending over with the rump in the air in front of men. Men would be totally distracted at seeing a woman's rear bent over from behind. Now how appropriate is that??? For this reason, the men stand in front and the woman stand behind.

    However, I've often wondered... why can't there be a division down the center of the mosque, a division bordered by a screen or curtain, with women on one side and men on the other? That way the woman aren't behind the men, but they are side by side. The curtain would shield off any views of them bending over.

    Muslims, can this be done?

    hfghsshgsfg: This is exactly what I asked, read it again. I asked if men and women can sit side by side with some kind of barrier between them, like a screen or drapes. This way the men don't see the women bent over, and the women don't see the men bent over either.

    GypsyGr-ranny: You are 100% correct about Baha'i children and education. If parents have to choose between educating their son or daughter, and they can't choose both, they must choose the daughter. She will be a mother, and a mother is the first teacher. As for your take on whether or not Muslim men believe women to have a soul, on this you are mistaken. Islam says that all are equal in front of Allah, and women do have souls and Islam respects women very much. Culture is one thing, but religion is another. It's true that pre-Islamic Arabians used to bury their newborn daughters alive, but it's written in the Qur'an to stop that at once. It was Islam that taught this to be wrong.

    For the same reason Muslims once buried baby girls alive in the desert, they were not equal--they were believed to have no souls. So why should they presume to sit next to a man in a mosque. It's called ignorance.

    But, there was a Muslim called Baha'u'llah, who claimed to be a Prophet of God; the twelfth imam Moslems have been praying would come to bring peace and brotherhood on earth. Baha'u'llah's teaching, and one of many for which He was imprisoned by the Moslems, almost His whole life, was that if parents have (two) 2 children, a male and a female, but can afford to educate only one, it is the girl child who must be educated; for the girl will become a mother, who will be the first educator of the next generation; and if the mother be deficient, the next generation will be deficient. Baha'ullah teaches that men and women were created equally--not the same [thank God]--but with equal opportunities and rights.

    The explanation we were given when visiting a mosque for a school project is because the men would get distracted by the women.

    I think it's just another example of what happens when men are allowed to create a religion...women become second class.

    Islamic terrorism is inspired by Islamic teachings. We can never get rid of Islamic terrorism unless we defeat the ideology behind it and that is Islam itself. Islam induces hate backed by lies. Muhammad was a terrorist by his own admission. All Muslims, to the extent that they follow him, are terrorists. Those Muslims who are not terrorists are ignorant of Islam and are not good Muslims. Fortunately they are the majority. We need to rescue them. If you are a good human being, you are not a Muslim. Read this site and if you can't prove me wrong, which you certainly can't, leave this deceitful cult of hate and terror and join mankind. Don't be part of the Umma. Umma is fascism. It is divisive. It induces the hatred of others. Be part of humanity instead. Your ignorance is not an excuse. Pull your head out of the sand and face the truth, like we did.

    it is allowed for women human beings and non-Muslims to circulate into mosques, as long as they comprehend the gown code and cleanliness circumstances. The worldwide places the place they do no longer enable it are actually not probably strict Muslims, they are genuinely EXTREMIST or ignorant. concerning to the citation you stated, it is no longer from the Quran. there's a Hadith (asserting of Prophet Muhammad) that broadcasts: "do no longer restrict the girls human beings servants of Allah from vacationing the mosques of Allah". This replace into the prepare during the existence of the Prophet and for some years after that. Later there have been issues and lack of self assurance in some places so it replace into favored that girls human beings no longer circulate, yet that may not a non secular prepare. additionally some cultures are too suppressive of girls human beings, like that of India, because of the consequence of the Hindu faith and custom, and hence in those places women human beings are actually not allowed to circulate right into a mosque. somewhat, those are rotten traditions that could desire to be abolished, because of the fact the unique Islam gave the main appropriate to females human beings to wish interior the mosques, to benefit, to artwork, and to take part in public existence which includes politics. As for non-Muslims shifting into Mosques, there is an oft-misunderstood verse interior the Quran that prohibits the disbelievers from going in many cases to mosques. A mosque is a place for prayer surely, in spite of the shown fact that it is visited with the aid of somebody who's involved by Islam, or on an identical time as a vacationer, as long as they comprehend the worshipers and don't produce noise or enter with irrelevant clothing. The verse replace into concerning to the polytheists who used to circulate to the Holy Mosque in Mecca generally to worship their idols. As there have been not extra idols and that they weren't probably worshiping Allah, there replace into no rationalization for them to circulate to the Holy Mosque in Mecca to any extent further. wish this makes issues sparkling.

    first, before you pray u have to go thru a process of cleaning called "wodoo" which water has to touched certain parts of ur body. if a man touched a strange woman (not his wife, not his mom, not his sister etc ..) thru the skin, the man and the woman has to re-do the wodoo.

    2nd, during our praying, we bow down to God. how it feels while u r praying to God a woman is bending over in front of you? all the focus suppose to be about God only. it will interpret the prayers.

    3rd, it's about obeying God, it dosen't matter if u like it or not, u just obey God to whatever He says.
