Rights of women

Rights of women


In the days of ignorance, women were meted out inhuman treatment.  Boys were preferred over girls.  Even in inheritance, only boys would have a share and girls would be deprived of it.  In their menses, women were treated like animals.  Even eating along with a woman in her periods was prohibited. Men would divorce a woman as many times as he wanted to and again take her back.  In every aspect of life, women were oppressed.


The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) declared all those rights of women which were their due and gave them such a high place to women that no other religion or philosophy of life had even approached it.


The following is the concise command of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) about women:


O people, your women have certain rights on you………… Hence be conscious of Allah Most High about them.
