What Are The Rights Of Women In Islam?

In Islam, everyone is responsible for his actions and have to answer in front of God. Muslims believe in a divine essence for modesty that the virtue reflected in the behavior of men and women.  Overall interpretations made by scholars in some conservative minority cultures, for example, restrictions on women’s driving prohibition that reflect the influence of these traditional cultures. Woman also preferable for performing their Hajj and Umrah Obligation.

Islam truly honored the woman. As a mother, she must be obeyed and well treated. The satisfaction of a woman is inextricably linked to Allah. It is said that the mother is the shortest way to reach paradise. His rights over the child are higher than those of the father. Mainly it is recommended by Islam to take care of his elderly and weak mother. All these recommendations are included in many texts in the Quran and Sunnah.

After Islam, a woman receives their proper rights; a woman has rights to fulfill their spiritual duties with their mahram. Here are some over aspects of a woman in our society:

  1. Religious aspect

The Quran clearly states that men and women have the same human nature. Both genders received the divine breath that gave them dignity. There are many additional reasons to love and appreciate women and not punishment in a single fault. The man and the woman have equal responsibilities, and both face the consequences for the decisions of their moral actions. The Quran indicates only superiority is piety and righteousness.

  1. Economic aspect

Islamic law provides safety for women’s rights before and after marriage. Women receive greater financial security rather than men. She is entitled to the full amount of her wedding gift. She has the right to keep all present or future properties and income for her safety. Additionally, she is entitled to all financial assistance during and after the marriage, regardless of her wealth. Additional fees included in case of divorce. The woman disposes of alone by the usufruct of her possible work. On the other hand, the man must maintain and provide the multiple needs of his family.

  1. Social aspect
  2. As a girl: The attitude of some parents who tend to favor their sons is seen in most of the families. It prescribes the duty to help and show kindness and justice to girls. Girls’ education is not only a right but an obligation for all Muslims. A girl has the right to accept or reject marriage proposals. Forced marriage without mutual consent is invalid according to the teachings of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
  3. As a wife: The opinion of Islam on marriage is expressed in the following verse of the Quran: “Among His signs, women are created only for you as a wife so that you live in peace and Allah put affection and kindness between you.
  4. As a mother: The Quran prescribes consideration to parents, especially mothers. Muslims learn that there is a paradise in the mother’s feet.
  5. As a sister: The Prophet recommended the kindness, the attention and the respect of the women because of the sister relation. Today, there is a wide gap between the ideal Islamic law and reality cultural practices.
  6. Legal and political aspects

Men and women are equal in the eye of law as well as Islamic point of view. The changes in the number of male and female witnesses in the courts are included in the Quran only in the context of financial contracts. The purpose is to establish the accuracy of the testimony, in a given setting, through which women not exposed or experienced in commercial matters.

“The perfect believer is the one who has the best behavior. The best of you are the best ones with their wives “, said by our Prophet (PBUH).

What are the conditions of wearing the veil?

The conditions for the veil to be legally valid just because of the following reasons:

  • The veil must cover the entire body of the woman including the face.
  • The veil should not be tight, because this makes appear the forms of the body of the woman.
  • It must not be transparent, because transparency denudes the woman instead of covering her.
  • It must not bear any resemblance to the clothes of the disbelievers because the prophet said: “Whoever imitates a people, is one of them.”
  • It must not have any resemblance to the clothes of men.
  • It must not be in itself an ornament or colored to attract attention. The best is that it is black.

What are the aspects of Hijab?

  1. Islam has honored the woman by prescribing to wear the hijab just for protecting her from malefactors and people’s eyes as well as to protect society from its exhibition.
  2. The hijab maintains the bond of affection between the spouses. Indeed, in a society where women display their beauty, the man is not immune to being seduced by a woman.
  3. The Muslim woman is comparable to a precious stone. So, it’s carefully preserves and protects the eyes of others.

CONCLUSION

Islam was the first culture to admit the woman’s total financial independence or to grant her codified rights for instance, she become the part of voting. Muslim women constitute roughly half of the Ummah. God, in his wisdom, did not wait for others to draw for them the plans for their liberation.

According to Abu Hurayra (R.A), a man came to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and said to him: O Messenger of Allah! Who is the one who deserves better than all my good company? Your mother, then who? Your mother, then who? Your mother, then who? Your father “

In Islam, everyone is responsible for his actions and will answer to God. Muslims make an act of Islam not by blind faith, but by accepting the coherence of all the principles of God in the Quran, and the example of the prophet, because we must restore the problem in this context and no other.
