In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.


All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger

Attn. Brothers! Some of you may not like this information, but please read it with an open mind, because only two things work when they are open, a mind and a parachute. 

For women, Islam is a special blessing; and our Prophet(PBUH) is indeed the greatest single benefactor of womenfolk. Islam has given women rights and privileges that she has never enjoyed under other religious or constitutional systems. Qur’an bears witness to the fact that woman is, at least vital, to life as man himself, and she is not inferior to him. Islam refuted the idea that Eve tempted Adam to disobey Allah and thus caused his downfall. The Qur’an explicitly says that they both were disobeyed and that integrates the idea that the woman is the source of evil. The rights and responsibilities of a woman are equal to those of a man, but they are not necessarily identical with them, because both are different in their physiological and psychological make-up. Allah has created both for different purposes.  Following are their rights:

  • Women, as Mothers, deserve the kind treatment three times more than the fathers.

  • She must be treated with respect and dignity. No physical, verbal or emotional abuse.

  • She is entitled to receive worldly and religious education with the same standards as men.

  • She must be fed, clothed and sheltered with the same standards as men.

  • She must get the same standard of medical treatment as men.

     _     She should not be judged by her looks, rather by her character. 

  • She is entitled to freedom of expression as a man.

  • As daughters, they must be treated just like sons.

  • She has the final say in her marriage. Marriage is null if she does not agree.

  • She could run her own business, buy properties in her own name.

  • She has a share in her family’s inheritance which no one can disinherit.

  • She is not responsible for the family’s financial liabilities.

  • As a wife, she must get a monthly allowance.

  • She is not required to cook, clean or do other household chores. However, if she does, willingly, she will be rewarded by Allah. 

  • She can file for a divorce(Khul)

  • She is entitled to go to the Masjid/Islamic center. 

  • She will be allowed to enter from any doors of Jannah, if she fulfills her Islamic duties, protect herself, protect her home and obey her husband which is not in the disobedience of Allah.

Please note that when non-Muslim women hear about these rights they are shocked and feel jealous. This is one of the reasons, more women are converting to Islam than men.
