This study revolves around the feminist, sacred and political discourse of the Moroccan feminist writer Fatima Mernissi (1940-2015).  Between it and the West’s aspiration to liberate women, and their reality in the age of Islamic culture from a simplified interpretive perspective, through which it aims to criticize guardianship over women, dismantle guardianship and warn against falling into misunderstanding, confusion and mixing things up, and adopting propositions and opinions that modernity has denounced, either in her book The Political Harem.  I tried to research the allegations that revolve around the marginalization and exclusion of women from the political presence, and the consideration of sacred texts as a political force in the face of their opponents.  I dealt with reading the hadith of the Prophet, and the importance of this study lies in that it removes the veil from the nature of critical thought of Mernissi in cooperation with social issues  And the general cultural, and the feminist issue in particular, and it illustrates the effort with the Arab cultural issue, especially in the light of Islamic societies. Moreover, it provides a comprehensive concept of the current situation of women within the arbitrary acts and oppression that existed in those societies.  Especially the issue of the veil, the approaches of contemporary feminist discourse to the veil varied, and were formed and presented through several overlapping circles, including the historical approaches dealing with the legislative exclusion or (roots) of the Islamic veil, and the political exclusion of the veil in which the views of some feminist researchers differed on the veil .
