woman in Islam

The impact of Islamic teachings on women

By Sadaf Farooqi | OnIslam | 23 Nov 2012

The Qur’an is indeed a miracle that has withstood the test of time; not a single letter in it has changed over 14 centuries. Hundreds of thousands of Muslims memorize and preserve it in their hearts. It contains amazing scientific facts confirmed much later after their revelation. Allah, the Exalted, promised to protect and preserve it. He says, “Surely We have revealed the Reminder, and We will most surely be its Guardian.” (Qur’an, 15:9)

 

Why women must not travel alone

Abu Saeed Al-Khudri, an Ansari companion of the Prophet (peace be upon him) who was very close to him said: I heard the Prophet mentioning four things that I admired: That a woman must not travel a distance of two days unless she is accompanied by her husband or a mahram relative; two days are not allowed to fast which are the two days of Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha; no voluntary prayer may be offered after two obligatory ones: After Asr until the sun has set and after Fajr until the sun has risen; travel may be undertaken only to three mosques: the Sacred Mosque (in Makkah), this mosque of mine (in Madinah) and the Aqsa mosque (in Jerusalem). (Related by Al-Bukhari)

 

A Woman as a Mother

The first contact with a woman is with one's mother,  who suffers in pregnancy, delivery,nursing and rearing of her child. History does not recall a religion or a system which honours the woman as a mother and which raises her, as Islam does.

 

Position of women in Islam — social aspect

Prior to the advent of Islam, female infanticide was practiced by the Arabs.
Islam not only succeeded in uprooting this evil practice by declaring it to be murder, but also ended the prevalent notion that the birth of a girl was not as auspicious as the birth of a boy. Islam teaches that the birth of any child is a great blessing.
