Dr. Mohibullah Khan Marwat, Syed Zia-ul-Islam, Muhammad Waseem, Hazratullah Khattak, Safeena BiBi

The purpose of this study was to examine the available literature in perspective of sport performance of the Muslim women at the arena and the different constraints preventing them from involvement in the sport. Considerable amount of literature is available about the female participation in sport leisure but very limited literature is available about the Muslims women and their involvement in sport. This exploratory study is aiming at to describe the different aspects of the problem. In Muslim countries the general concept of the masses in connection with sport is that it has been man dominated and man oriented activity. A number of socio-cultural, religious, economical, physical and psychological constraints prevent the female folk to appear at the sport arenas at the national and international level competition. An attempt has been made to explore those common issues faced by majority of the Muslim women in their way to participation in sport. Recommendations have been put forth for the improvement of situation with reference to female participation in sport. To bring substantial positive change in the state of affairs, more work is needed and it is hoped that this work will definitely open ways for the future researchers.
