Women Rights in Islam and our Misunderstanding

Allah said in Quran (Chapter: 4, Verse no: 124) that “One who does righteous deeds among the believers, whether male or female, they for sure will enter Jannah and they will not be wronged a speck.” In the above mention verse Allah doesn’t differentiate women and men, but gives equal rights to both. In the eyes of Islam the beloved and successful is one who does righteous deeds irrespective of gender.

Islam is derived from the word “Slim” which means “peace.” Thus the word Islam itself answers all the questions and misunderstandings that has spread far and wide. We need to understand that when the name of a religion is peace, how-come can it be brutal & inhumane against any other sect. Islamic scholarship promotes peace and ensures a better world for everyone to live in.
The topic of women’s rights in Islam has now become a title of great misunderstanding and fallacy due to Islamophobia created by the western media & manipulating culprits. The rights that Islam provided to women are innumerable and unique for no other religion has given such rights. Yes, Women grabbed more rights from the west than their concerned culture’s provided them with but such rights stabbed them back. In this shameless struggle the women lost her culture, motherhood, respect & what not else. In western culture women is being treated like a commodity in the name of liberty, freedom and enjoyment. Media can be seeing sexualizing the women by spreading nudity & obscene advertisements.
Allah said in Quran (Chapter: 4, Verse no: 124) that “One who does righteous deeds among the believers, whether male or female, they for sure will enter Jannah and they will not be wronged a speck.” In the above mention verse Allah doesn’t differentiate women and men, but gives equal rights to both. In the eyes of Islam the beloved and successful is one who does righteous deeds irrespective of gender.
It is a known fact that women does differ physically, biologically, and psychologically from men and accordingly Islam has provided the rights to both on the basis of equality. Under some circumstances women experience more rights than men because the situation and the nature of problem determine so. Same stands true for men.
Take the following example: A boy and a girl are studying in the same class having same subjects. Both gave exams at the same time, after result comes out both he same marks percentange (let it be 90%), but when we check the subject wise results the marks of both differ in one subject. Girl student has secured more marks and in another subject boy student has secured more, but in whole both are at the same position and same rank. Same is the case with rights of women and men in Islam though in some circumstances the rights may differ according to physical and biological needs but both are same in the eyes of Islam. We need to understand that they’re equal but not identical.
If we were to describe the rights to woman that Islam has provided, it will take me years to define. By classifying the rights into major groups, I’ve tried to introduce you to some important rights that beautiful Islam secures every woman with!

Spiritual Rights

In many religions other than Islam, labour pain of a woman is considered as a punishment, but Islam strongly regrets such ligations against her. In the eyes of Islam the status of woman gets elevated than a man after giving birth to a child and most importantly the valuable paradise comes under her feet.

Economic Rights

When we look at the era of ignorance, woman was treated like a commodity, she was not given a right to own anything. She was taken as an object of pleasure to men. In some of the countries woman was used as a currency, as a payment to buy goods and other materials. But Islam gave her a right to property and wealth. A woman is the owner of her property in the same was as is a man. She can spend her money righteously where ever she wants to and no one has a right to stop her. The right to property was given to woman in India almost 7 years before but Islam gave it more than 1450 years before. That is the beauty of Islamic rights and the dynamism that Islam promotes. In Islam woman too has been given a choice to own her business but under the legal banners of our personal law (Shariyah), and the money she does make is of her own, so no one can take it from her. The basic needs of a woman be it cloth , food and accomodation is the responsibility of her father, brother or her husband (if married). Islam has beautified the lives of women. At the time of marriage Islam directs man to give woman something (can be cash or kind) called as “Mehar” and taking anything from woman is strongly prohibited.

Social Rights

Islam gave woman a right to live. In the era of ignorance people considered it a duty to bury their daughters alive & having daughters was considered as shameful. Islam not only prohibited such shameful act but called it a sin as well.
Birth of a girl is considered full of mercy in Islam. When a woman gets married Islam calls her “Mohsina”-the one who saves you from the bad deeds and encourages you towards righteous deeds. Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) while commanding to treat the women well said: “The best among you is the one who is best with his wife.” Allah has mentioned in Quran (Chapter: 2, Verse:187): “They (women) are your clothing and you are their clothing” means they are the one who hide your defects and you hide theirs. Here also Islam doesn’t duffer the rights of women as compared to men.
