What does Islam say about "mothers"?

By Ansar Al-'Adl / 12 Mar 2013

This is one of the most convincing things about Islam - the treatment of women in general and especially the high position mothers hold in Islam.

Islam raises parents to a status greater than that found in any other religion or ideology.

By Mary C. Ali and Anjum Ali / 11 Mar 2013

The Qur'an and the Sunnah of Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) are the sources from which every Muslim woman derives her rights and duties. Today people think that women are liberated in the West and that the women's liberation movement began in the twentieth century.

By Reuters / 1 Mar 2013

Spain’s Supreme Court has overturned the city of Lleida’s ban on women wearing full-face veils — such as burqas or niqabs — in public buildings, citing religious freedom and saying the city’s argument of security concerns was unfounded.

In its ruling, dated Feb. 14 and made public on Thursday, the court said the ban could increase discrimination, rather than help eliminate it, as it may force some women to stay at home and therefore not integrate at all into Spanish society.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright.

Muslimah’s Guide to Saving Smarter

As a child, I remember my mother keeping a meticulous record of things she bought with the housekeeping money my father gave her. I often wondered why; and when I asked, she’d say she needed to make hisaab, or be accountable for the money she used. Since the money was entrusted to her by my father, she had to use it responsibly.

As I entered my teenage years, I thought the idea almost laughable – would I be willing to keep track of every cent I spent? Then I became an adult, entered the corporate world and started earning my own money. Stark reality hit me like a bucket of ice cold water in the face on a cold winter’s day!
