What is a woman?

Thinkers have shared opinions on women. They are crucial in families, facing challenges side by side. Before Islam, women were seen as inferior, with the disturbing practice of burying daughters alive. Islam abolished this, giving women a unique and elevated position unmatched by other religions or nations. In this blog we explore the role of women in Islam.

 

Women in Islam

Fourteen hundred years ago, when Hazrat Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace, came to Arabia, he started preaching Islam in the world, due to which women got a high position.  Those who claim today that we give freedom to women and that Islam despises women are misrepresenting the history. In fact, Islam gave women the right to basic property 1400 years ago, while the West gave it recently.

Allah has emphasized justice with men and women in verse 72 of Surah Touba of the Holy Qur’an.

These verses show that Allah Ta’ala will deal with both genders equally. Both will be rewarded according to their actions.

Women’s right to education in Islam

Islam attracted women towards modernity and worldliness and declared education as essential for women as for men.  The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) had allocated a day for women in which he would enlighten them with the teachings of Islam.  Hazrat Aisha (RA) also has a prominent position in narrating Hadith.

 

A woman’s right to choose a life partner in peace

Islam has also given the right to choose a partner for marriage like in other fields.  Just as Islam has given the right to marry a man of his choice, in the same way, a woman has also been given the right to choose a man for marriage with whom the marriage is not prohibited by Sharia.

Position of mother, sister, wife and daughter in Islam

Islam has given a high position to the female gender in the form of mother and daughter and gave the good news of heaven under the mother’s feet.  Men used to bury their daughters alive in the age of Jahiliyyah, but Islam made men the guardians of their daughters.  A person who has a good relationship with his sister and wife is said to be the best person.  With its advent, Islam bestowed honor and dignity on women in every position.

Empowered and Enlightened: Exploring the role of Women in Islam

 

Hadith about daughter

Allah’s Messenger – said, “As for him who sustains two girls, I and he will enter paradise like these two” and, he gestured with two fingers. (Sayyidina Anas ibn Maalik (RA) reported : Sunan Tarmidhi 1914)

 

Hadith about Wives

I went to the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and asked him: What do you say (command) about our wives? He replied: Give them food what you have for yourself, and clothe them by which you clothe yourself, and do not beat them, and do not revile them. (Narrated by Muawiyah al-Qushayri (RA) : Sunan Ibn Dawood 2144)

The western world is leading women astray in the name of so-called freedom, but these women should read Quran and Hadiths so that they know that Islam has given a high position to women.  Allah Ta’ala has said in Surah Baqarah that women have the same rights over men as men have over women, but men have a status over them and Allah Ta’ala has given this status because they are the guardians of women.  And fulfill the responsibility of their bread and sustenance better.  Our beloved Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, proved with his words and actions that the female sex is of great importance.
