Khadijah [R.A.], Prophet Muhammad's [SWS] first wife, was a business woman. She actually used to travel on her camel and bargain with men and make deals with them!

Also, Aisha, one of Prophet Muhammad's wives, not only narrated so many of his Sayings, and taught so many Muslims many laws about Islam during his life and after his death, but believe it or not, she actually led an army of 60,000 Muslim men after our Prophet peace be upon him died. That battle was called the "Battle of Camel"....

That battle was called the "Battle of Camel". It is a very popular battle. Every Muslim knows it.

The problem with the Taliban of Afghanistan, however, is that most of their top leaders are illiterate. They literally don't know how to read and write. The "Mullah Omar" their highest leader is one live example. As we saw in the first section of this article, those who lack education have a problem appreciating GOD Almighty. They are not preferred in Islam, and they could cause a lot of trouble.

I wouldn't expect any good leadership from a leadership such as the Taliban in Afghanistan. So, when they give verdicts against women's education, they are really coming up with their own false interpretations, that to them, seem to be the perfect rules.

Also, the Taliban gave verdicts that all Shia Muslims are infidels, and therefore it is ok to kill any of them. Their followers, who are mostly uneducated, blindly and ridiculously follow their leaders' twisting of Allah Almighty's Commands:

"O yes who believe! Obey God, and obey the Apostle, and those charged with authority among you. If yes differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to God and His Apostle, if yes do believe in God and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination. (The Noble Quran, 4:59)".

ASSALAMU ALAIKUM WA REHMATULLAHI WA BARAKATUHU TO ALL MUSLIMS , Surat At-Tawbah (The Repentance) - سورة التوبة ---- - - 9:12.
And if they break their oaths after their treaty and defame your religion, then fight the leaders of disbelief, for indeed, there are no oaths [sacred] to them; [fight them that] they might cease. - 9:13

Would you not fight a people who broke their oaths and determined to expel the Messenger, and they had begun [the attack upon] you the first time? Do you fear them?...

Would you not fight a people who broke their oaths and determined to expel the Messenger, and they had begun [the attack upon] you the first time? Do you fear them? But Allah has more right that you should fear Him, if you are [truly] believers.
9:14

Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people.
