ASALATU WASALAMU ALAYKA YA RASULLALLAH Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam

 

Woman in Islam have an extensive range of specific rights:

These rights are bestowed by Allah The Almighty, safeguarded by the infallibility of the Quran and demonstrated by the example of Our beloved Prophet Sayyedina Muhammad Mustufa Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam.

 

These rights were granted to women 1400 years ago, without their demands and without any

Liberation movement.

 

Salah, Sawm, Zakah and Hajj are obligatory for both men and women, and they are promised the same

rewards.

 

1. Women, in Islam, have full rights to intellectual development.

2. Along with men they have an obligation to seek knowledge, as Our Beloved Prophet Sayyedina Muhammad Mustufa Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam said;

It is a duty for every Muslim, male and female, to seek knowledge.

3. Islam credits both women and men with the capacity for earning, understanding and teaching.

4. According to Islamic teaching, Muslim parents are expected to attach the same importance to the education of their sons and daughters.

 

1. One of the most fundamental rights of Muslim women is the right of independent ownership.

2. This ownership is not subject to change by marriage.

3. Muslim women are absolutely free to buy, sell, exchange, mortgage or lease the whole or part of their properties independently without the prior consent of their husbands.

4. The whole of a woman's private income belongs entirely to her and without her and without her personal wish cannot be absorbed or used for general expenses related to the husband's sole responsibility (i.e. housekeeping, education of children,

maintenance).

5. A Muslim woman also has the right to

inherit.

6. A Muslim woman also has the right to accept employment which is compatible with her nature and dignity.

7. However her primary social role in the community is that of a wife and mother and this is regarded in Islam as sacred

and vital.

1. A woman has the right to vote

2. She can be nominated for various Political offices.

3. She is allowed to participate in public affairs.

4. In Islam, many famous women have figured prominently in the affairs of state.

 

Sayings of Our Beloved Prophet Sayyedeina Muhammad Mustufa Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam.

 

1. Paradise lies at the feet of your mother. (Musnad Ahmed)

2. 0 People, your wives have certain rights over you and you have certain rights over them. Treat them well and be kind to them, for they are your partners and committed helpers.

(Tirmidhi)

3 The best among you is the one who is the best towards his wife.

(Tirmidhi)
