We have lost our way, bro. That's a simple fact.There is plenty out there. Women having rights if inheritance, owning property etc is well documented as something that Islam brought.
With regards to transgender there is also documentation and scholarly articles and fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) around transgender. All the way through to Ottoman times. I believe the word used was mukhanathun (sp).
Im Muslim and enjoy looking at things as they are supposed to be and how they are. There is often a difference based on culture.
Interestingly I'm currently looking at something that came to my attention regarding the welfare state and what it took from Islam and how the 12 person based jury system has its foundations in Islam and specifically Maliki fiqh. Again 2 things we see in the "west" but not so much in "Islamic countries". Which raises the question of why? For me anyway
