Islam and Woman

In Islam, men and women are equal in the eyes of Allah and are expected to fulfill the same duties of worship, prayer, faith, almsgiving, fasting and pilgrimage to Mecca. Islam generally improved the status of women compared to previous Arab cultures, prohibiting female infanticide and recognizing the full personality of women.

Islamic law emphasizes the contractual nature of marriage, pay dowry to a woman instead of her family, and guarantees women’s inheritance rights and the ownership and administration of property. Women also granted the right to live in the matrimonial home and receive financial support during the marriage and a waiting period after death and divorce.

The historical record shows that Prophet Muhammad consulted the women and weight their opinions seriously. At least one woman, Umm Waraqah  named imam of her house by Muhammad. Women contributed significantly to the canonization of the Quran. It is known that a woman has corrected the authoritarian failure of Caliph Omar on the dowry.

Women pray in mosques not separate from men, participated in the transmission of hadiths, offere refuge to men, participate in commercial transactions , instructors and students in the early Islamic period. Muhammad’s last wife  Ayesha, was a well-known authority in medicine, history and rhetoric.

The Qur’an refers to women who promised an oath of allegiance to Muhammad regardless of their male relatives. Some distinguished women converted to Islam before their husbands, a demonstration of Islam’s recognition of its capacity for independent action.

Caliph Omar appointed women to serve as officials in the Medina market. The biographies of distinguished women, especially in Muhammad’s house, show that women behaved relatively autonomously in early Islam.

In Sufi circles, women recognized as teachers, adherents, “spiritual mothers” and even heirs of the spiritual secrets of their parents.
