Annie Besant on Islam

(1847-1933) British theosophist and nationalist leader in India. President of the Indian National Congress in 1917.

      "I often think that woman is more free in Islam than in Christianity. Woman is more protected by Islam than by the faith which preaches Monogamy. In Al-Quran the law about woman is more just and liberal. It is only in the last twenty years that Christian England, has recognized the right of woman to property, while Islam has allowed this right from all times."

[The Life and Teachings of Muhammad, Madras, 1932, pp. 25, 26]
