This sounds like an ideal solution. Women can be imams and judges and teachers and scholars etc..


Are women required to make the five daily prayers?


At what age are boy children separated from their mothers in the mosques?

That women can be teachers or scholars is not controversial,
lunatic fringe exceptd.

Aisha (r.a.), wife of Muhammad.as well as other of his wives,
have been quoted several times in the interpretation of the
Qu'ran.

Women may issue fatwas (religious opinions), but women
as state appointed muftis is without precedent in traditional
Islam.
