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.

Overall the climate of the country of Saudi Arabia is almost the same. In the majority of the country, the weather is similar to that of a desert’s weather and this situation remains the same in almost all parts of the country. The overall temperature remains extremely hot during most part of the year and it is also reported that at times the temperature has gone 60-degree centigrade. However, this figure is not officially confirmed but several claims have been made by various individuals and organizations in which they mentioned that the Temperature of Saudi Arabia has gone above 60-degree centigrade.

But there are parts of the country where the situation is different in terms of weather as compared to that of the rest of the country. One such part is the province of Asim which is situated on the along the western coast. The weather of this area of Saudi Arabia clearly differs from the various other parts of the country.

Especially, during the daytime, temperature rises up to extremely high level but at night, an abrupt drop in the temperature is observed and it is not that much hot at night as compared to the temperature at night. But during the day night, the temperature is so hot, especially during the summer season, that it becomes extremely difficult to walk in the sunlight for even a few minutes. People get extremely exhausted very easily within a very short period of time if they remain exposed to the sunlight even for a very short span of time and special care is required to be taken in order to protect you from the adverse of heat and increased temperature.

Winter Season at Saudi Arabia

How To Perform Umrah

Every religious act is sacred for the believers of a particular religion. Every religion of the world has some acts of worship that are thought to be obligatory or if not obligatory then they are thought to be the ones that must be performed just to please the Almighty. Among Muslims some religious observances are obligatory and Hajj is one of them. A similar act of worship is Umrah which is not obligatory and is often called as mini-Hajj and also has very importance. This is a sacred practice which is performed throughout the year in the holy land of Makkah in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and it is a religious observance that every Muslim wants to perform. It is not limited to the Muslims of a particular area, in fact, it is performed by the Muslims living all over the world. There are certain rites which must be performed to practice and adequately perform during the Umrah. Everyone must follow every step without which it will not be considered completed. These steps are given here for you to give you a gist of performing it legitimately and adequately.

What is different thing in Umrah?

Some rites are performed in Hajj and because of the duration of Umrah is shortened. These rites include going to Mina, staying overnight at Arafaat, going to Muzdalifah, throwing pebbles on the devil (Rami al-jamarat) and sacrificing an animal.

Steps included in Umrah

Four central rites should be performed sequentially and adequately while performing an Umrah. They are called as four pillars of Umrah. They include Ihram, Tawaaf, Sa’yee Taha-lul.

Ihram and the rites performed following it

Ihram is the type of clothing that has to worn during the religious acts of Hajj and Umrah. It is different for both men and women. For men, it consists of two pieces that have to be worn in a certain way according to Sunnah. These are two white pieces of cloth that should not be stitched. These two pieces are ‘Izaar’ and ‘Rida’. These are for covering the top and lower part of the body. ‘Rida’ covers top while ‘Izaar’ covers the lower part of the body. For women, it is the regular clothing but they need to cover their heads adequately but not faces.  Women should not wear gloves as well. The clothes are not specified for women but they just need to wear loose clothes to not get their body prominent or noticeable. The place of wearing Ihram matters a lot. It should be worn at Miqat. Miqat is the name of a place which is a holy place and Ihram must be worn at this point otherwise it is invalid.

Ihram is the necessary condition for performing Umrah without which it is invalid. Ihram should be worn by keeping into mind certain things. Firstly you need to know about all the things that are prohibited during wearing Ihram. You just need to avoid them in any case otherwise your Umrah will not be acceptable. You need to be neat and clean and for this, you must take bath or ‘Ghusal’ before wearing it to make sure that you are clean. It is not obligatory to take bath it depends on whether you are comfortable in wearing it or not but in a certain case when you are sure that you must take a bath then you should. You should make an intention or ‘niyyah’ to wear Ihram. Now when you have whole-heartedly made an intention and you are in the state of wearing Ihram you must start performing other rites of Umrah. From this point on, you should start reciting Talbiyah.

You need to move from the place of wearing Ihram. Now you are on the way to Makkah. In Makkah, you are about to enter Masjid Al-Haram. You need to put your right foot first while entering and recite a Dua. You should remember that you need to recite Duas at every step so you need to learn them all before Umrah. Dua should be recited after supplication to Allah while you are entering the holy mosque. When you come to the point where you can see Ka’aba you need to see by fixing your eyes on it. This is the point where you will stop reciting Talbiyah. Now standing in front of Baitullah you can recite Darood along with a few other Duas. This is the time when you can wish and pray to Allah for anything that you want. Do not forget to make the wishes simply. Your heart and mind must be utterly concentrated towards Allah as you are standing in front of him. This is the best time for acceptance of prayers.

Performing of Tawaaf

Tawaaf means merely the circumambulation. In Umrah (and of course in Hajj too) you move around Ka’aba. This has to be done seven times and every time you keep your heart filled with utmost reverence and immense for Allah.

The starting point of Tawaaf is Hajar-e-Aswad which means black stone. It is a sacred stone, is black and has to be touched and kissed. As every step in Umrah starts with making up your mind or by intending so is the case with Tawaaf. You need to intend for it. The conditions that need to be fulfilled in Tawaaf are:

  • Ablution or ‘Wudhu’ is the must before starting it
  • For men, it is obligatory to keep the right shoulder bare
  • Tawaaf must be done in anti-clockwise direction or more precisely, you need to keep your left side towards Ka’aba

It starts with touching and kissing of black stone. If you get the opportunity of doing this then it must be completed the way it is obligatory. If you do not get the opportunity of touching and kissing it then you can lift your hands open towards the black stone, you need to recite a specific Dua and now you can kiss your palm after lifting them again towards black stone and the rite is accepted. There is no need to push people and getting others into trouble. Moreover, there are chances of touching a man if you try to push others which is forbidden and is called ‘haram’. Just pointing and then kissing can make the ritual completed and it is called ‘Islam’. Now you should start the circling of Ka’aba. Istilam should be performed with every round of Tawaf. During Tawaaf you pass by a corner of Ka’aba called Rukn-e-Yamani which is the fourth corner. You should touch it with the right hand. During Tawaaf, men should walk with a bit more speed in the first three rounds around Ka’aba. They need to make small steps during this.

Now you need to reach Maqam-e-Ibrahim and you have to say a prayer consisting of two Raka’ahs. If it is convenient then touch and kiss Hajar-e-Aswad again.

Performing Sa’yee

After kissing and touching black stone or performing Istilam you should go for Sa’yee. It is started from Mount Safa. You need to be in the state of wudhu and also make the intention. There are some Duas that you can recite during Sa’yee as they are not specified. Sa’yee starts from the point of Safa where you can see Ka’aba. Now you need to descend from it after reciting Duas. Men need to run between the green pillars. Women should walk normally. Now is the time to ascend Marwa and there are same supplications as for Safa. This is the completion of the first circuit. You need to complete this rite seven times and in the same way. Now the ritual of Sa’yee is completed.

Tahal-lul

It is the last point after which your Umrah is completed. It includes Halaq or Qasar. These are the essential and last parts of the observance. They are done differently for men and women. Halaq or Qasar simply means shaving or trimming respectively. When you have completed the rite of Sa’yee and are in the state of wearing Ihram, you need to complete these steps. For men, it is preferable to get their heads shaved. They can get them cut more than that of women but it is more appropriate if the head is shaved. For women, it is preferable to trim the hair about the length of the fingertip. Women cannot get their heads shaved. Now is the time when you are having no restrictions of wearing Ihram. You can wear your regular clothes and can perform permissible acts that were forbidden during the state of wearing Ihram.

When the grace of Allah completes your Umrah, you should thank Allah by reciting prayers and offering ‘Nawafil’. This is the opportunity that every Muslim does not get so you are lucky if you get one and are so blessed by Allah. You need to be grateful for having a chance to visit such a holy and sacred place of Makkah and Madina as every Muslim wants to have such a great chance.

Pillars Of Islam Are Obligations On All Muslims

The “five basic pillars of religion Islam” are religious obligations that provide a complete framework for every Muslim’s life. In which Namaz is an obligation that is performed regularly and all the pillars of Islam helps in attaining the personal spiritual growth, self- abstain and self-restraint, to care for the poor, self-discipline, and sacrifice. All the pillars of Islam provide complete structure and hold something steadily in place. They provide support, and all Muslims must be present for the framework to balance perfect and steadily.

Islamic teachings about the Five Basic Pillars of Islam are found in the Hadith and Quran. Let us discuss all the pillars.

SHAHAADAH

The first and the most important act of worship that every Muslims has to do is a declaration and confirmation of faith, well known as the shahaadah. The literal meaning of word shahaadah is “to bear witness,” so by professing and admitting faith verbally; a person is bearing witness to the truth of the message of Islam and it is the most fundamental teachings. The shahaadah is repeated several times by Muslims each day, both individually and also in daily namaz, and it is the most frequently-written phrase in Arabic calligraphy.

Non-Muslims who want to accept Islam and to convert to religion Islam do so by simply reciting and proclaiming the shahaadah aloud, preferably in front witnesses. Before die, Muslims also wish to say these words od shahaadah.

SALAAT OR NAMAZ

When a Muslim stands before the ALLAH Almighty with his arms folded, every day five times, praises ALLAH and kneels down before Him and touches the floor or ground with his forehead for doing Sajdah and makes earnest supplications to ALLAH Almighty, that person becomes worthy of His beneficence and love, his heart attains great enlightenment and his life becomes more pure from sins.

Every day namaz is a touchstone in every Muslim’s life. In religion Islam, all worships are only performed for ALLAH Almighty alone, so as namaz. Namaz can be performed in Masjid with congregation and also at offices, educational institutes, homes etc. Muslims, from their hectic and busy routine take time out for performing five times namaz each day to direct their hearts towards ALLAH Almighty. The movements and postures of namaz include standing; sitting, bowing, and prostrating these all positions have also many medical benefits. Words of namaz include verses from the Quran, words of praise, gratefulness and thanks to ALLAH Almighty and also personal supplications.

Muslims who avoid and neglect the Namaz and do nothing to perform it should imagine that how they are going to face all the things on the Day of Resurrection. So being a Muslim we should not miss any namaz but we should always try to perform all namaz.

ZAKAT (OBLIGATORY CHARITY)

In the Holy Quran, giving charity or Zakaat to the poor and needy peoples is often mentioned hand-in-hand with daily obligatory namaz. Zakaat is central to core belief of Muslims that each and everything that we have comes from ALLAH Almighty, and is not to hoard neither its our property. We should always feel blessed for each and everything we have, and must be willing to give and share with those people who are less fortunate. Charity in Islam at any time is recommended, but for zakaat there is a set percentage required for those people who reach a certain minimum net worth that are described in Islam.

Zakah is a great system that helps the poor people in need. We can share some amount of our money for helping others instead of wasting it on useless activities and things that we really do not need. When the time of paying Zakat comes, we can give money to poor and needy Muslim families, who could spend that money for fulfilling their basic necessities, for instance. The happiness that a person would get from doing this would be much sweeter much greater than the enjoyment obtained from spending their money on unimportant or useless things. Zakat is the system ALLAH Almighty in which we collect our money, put it together and utilize our money to help poor and needy.

SAWM OR ROZA

Muslims observe fasting as a way to purify their soul, heart, mind, and body. In religion Islam, fasting helps us to feel about those who are less fortunate, helps us to organize our lives, and it also brings us closer to ALLAH Almighty in strengthened faith. Muslims fast throughout the Holy month of Ramadan; all physical and mental able Muslims must fast during the month of Holy Ramadan every year. The fast lasts from dawn to sunset for the whole month, during which time period Muslims abstains themselves from eating or drinking and all prohibited things. Muslims try to spend their most of the time in doing additional worship, abstain and refrain from gossip and bad talk, and share in charity and in friendship with others. Fast in Islam starts from fajr and all Muslims break the fast at Maghrib.

HAJJ (OBLIGATORY PILGRIMAGE)

Hajj is the annual pilgrimage that is obligatory to perform on every financial and physical able Muslims. Unlike the other “pillars” of religion Islam, the pilgrimage Hajj is obligatory to be done once in a lifetime. The Hajj pilgrimage is performed in the month of Zil-Hajj and it lasts for several days, and is only required to perform only on those Muslims who are financially and physically able to make the sacred journey.
