Yusuf Al-Qaradawi women in politics

"Islam never differentiates between men and women as regards political rights and puts them on an equal footing. However, even if a woman is qualified for leadership, when it comes to posts of authority such as presidency, Muslim scholars unanimously agree that it is impermissible for a woman to assume such a post because in this case she is in charge of her people’s affairs."

- Yusuf Al-Qaradawi
Spiritual Head of the Muslim Brotherhood
