The article comments on the idea that Islamic scholars refuse a female Muslim to hold positions of president and Muslim Caliph. They resort to a hadith narrated by Abu Bakrah that when the Prophet Muhammad was informed that people of Persia were ruled by Kisra´s daughter. He replied that no tribe is going to succeed as long as it is governed by a woman.
