PostSubject: Women in Islam....................   Sun 12 Apr - 11:06

The Condition of Women before Islam
Islam came at a time when women all over the world were being oppressed
and exploited. The most any society would accord the woman was to admit
that she was part of the human race. They never admitted her dignity or
gave her rights and responsibilities equal to those of men. The Greeks
considered her to be an object of pleasure and amusement. This view was
articulated in the classical texts most unambiguously:
We take prostitutes for pleasure, lovers to care for our daily health, and wives to give us legitimate children.
The Romans gave the father and husband the right to sell her to whomever they pleased.

Arabs gave the son the right to inherit the wife of his father (not his
own mother) just like he would inherit his father’s wealth and his
steed! That is if she were lucky enough not to have been buried alive
at birth.

This was the case with the rest of the world’s societies at that time, like those of the Persians and the Hindus.

Women remained in this horrible state without protesting or rebelling
against it. No one else was to do so either. Nor were there any social
or economic developments that would require a betterment of her status.

Then Islam came, proclaiming her rights and her equality with men. It
established for her all of her rights to bring her out of the miserable
state that she was in and elevate her to the noble status that she

How did this happen?

Equality Between Men and Women in Islam

Islam establishes the principle of equality between men and women in
all aspects of life that they are equal in, because both of them are
equally human. It does however distinguishes between them in some
areas, taking into consideration the natural differences between them
and the special qualities that each of them has.

Equality between men and women in Islam is derived from the following considerations:

1. Equality in their human origins:
Islam conclusively establishes that all human beings have a common origin. This fact is mentioned in many verses of the Qur’ân:
- O Mankind, fear your Lord who created you from a single
soul and created from it its mate and brought forth from the two of
them many men and women.
- O Mankind, verily we created you from a male and a female and made
you into nations and tribes so you may know one another. Verily the
most honorable of you with Allah are the most righteous.
2. Equality in their common destiny:

Islam also establishes that all of mankind is going to return to Allah
who created them, and everyone – male and female – is going to be
recompensed for his or her worldly deeds. They will receive well if
they did good and they will be requited with evil if they did evil.
Allah says: - And every one of you will come to Him alone on the Day of Resurrection.
- A human being will have nothing except for what he does. And his deeds will be seen. Then he will be recompensed fully.
- So their Lord accepted of them their supplication and answered them:
‘I will never allow the work of any of you to be lost, male or female.
You are from each other.
- Whoever works righteousness as a believer, whether male or female, we
will truly give a good life and We shall pay them a reward in
proportion to the best of what they used to do.

Equality between man and woman was brought to humanity some 14 centuries ago with the coming of Islam that founded what the West calls "democracy".
It's not a time to talk down their policy but I want to point things out
