Women Rights in Islam
Before Islam, the birth of a daughter in the family was no occasion for rejoicing but was regarded with humiliation. The practice of killing female children was common and uncontrolled. Women were treated
Like a slave or property. They were used for one purpose and then discarded. They had no independence as they could own no property and were not allowed to inherit. Their personal consent
Concerning anything related to their well-being was considered unimportant to the extent that they were never even treated as a party to a marriage contract.
With the advent of Islam, more than the 1400 years ago, many rights were granted to women by Allah on of that right is that Islam considered women to be equal to a man as a human being and as his partner in his life. The Quran makes it clear that the woman has been created with a soul of the same nature as man.
In Islamic law a woman is an independent, unique individual in her own rights she has the same responsibility toward herself, towards Allah and towards other human beings as a man, she will be rewarded or punished hereafter without discrimination towards her female gender. In Islam, the rights and responsibilities of a woman is equal to the woman.
Islam treats women in various dimensions: as a daughter, as a wife, a mother, and as divorcee as widows as give them rights accordingly
women always belong to the paternal family and marriage does not break this bond. Change of name after marriage is a borrowed culture.
Women As Daughter
Before 14 years Arabs people was burry their daughter or burn them
But Islam gave him all rights
Daughter is a Blessing by Allah. About the education, Expenses, and Sponsorship of daughter the some Hadith are as follows:
1: Hazrat Auf bin Malik Asghayi said that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: A Muslim who has three daughters willingly accepts the burden of their expenses educates them, marries them, the hell Will become a hijab for this. One of the women said, “Ya Rasool Allah(S.A.W.W) if one has two daughters, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that hell will become a hijab for this too.
2: Anas bin Malik narrates that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: If a person brings something to his children from the market, then he is like a person who does something for charity. When it comes to distributing it, he should start with the daughters. Indeed, Allah Almighty blesses the daughters. He who is kind to his daughters is like the one who cries out to him, and the tears of those who cry out to God cause his forgiveness, and the person who is happy with the daughters of Allah, on the day of his sorrow, will make him happy. Allah will make rich.
3: The man is Lucky that the first child is a daughter.
4: The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W) said, “should I not tell you what is the best charity”
That you should show kindness to that daughter who (becoming a widow or having been divorced) has been returned to you, and who has no other maintainer or support.”
Females got a status in not just society but an inheritance too.
They came under the protection of their fathers, brothers, and husbands.
Although Islam has brought a great revival still females, especially daughters become a victim of prejudice.
However, according to Islam, daughters are considered to be mercy from Allah.
In case a daughter is born in someone’s house, that person should not get sad, instead, he should rejoice because it is a Mercy from Allah.
Even our Prophet Muhammad P.B.U.H said that do not curse those who have daughters because I am the father of daughters of too.
People today think that daughters can be a big burden for them because they have to make arrangements for their wedding.
They have a narrow view that daughters will be working for the person whom she will live with so why should they provide them with the best education or
Brought up, daughters are mostly abandoned because of this reason.
Woman as Mother
in the Quran, Allah said about the rights of Mother and father
“and your Lord decreed that not worshipped except him and to parents, good treatment whether one of them reach old age (while) with you, say not to them (so much as) “uff” , and do not repel them speak to them a noble word. And lower them to the wing of humility out of mercy and says “my Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up when I was small”
The Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) said that
“Heaven is under the feet of mother”
Mother is a great entity. There is no great relation except Mother in the world. Mother always looks after us and cares about over health. Mother teaches us the right way of life. A mother is an angle a kinda gentlewoman. Mother gives birth to us. She takes good care of us. She gives us every all the facilities that we need. She gets up early and sleeps very late for us. She works very hard yet, without complaining. Mother is a thrifty and industrious woman. Mother gives us good advice that needs in real life.
Mother is the most important person in our life. She taught us how to feel well. She shows us how to handle these feelings of anger, fear, guilt, joy, sadness, excitement, hate and anxiety. She also shows us how to give and take. In short, the mother is a great blessing of Allah. Mother always keeps us alive. We should respect mom and we should accept every mother that’s she wants and needs. if somebody saw the face of her mom in haply then its equal to one hajj. If we will respect parents then over the new generation respect us if will not respect parents then over the new generation did not respect us.
Do not abuse each other of the mother. Every mom is the gift of God. And it’s so precious so gift. Mother is the model for his child. That’s why a child growing up in the company of mother as per child growth the mother teaches him the lesson of life. You know the first school of the child is the own house. Why because his mother teaches him everything about life. A mom is a great friend for his children, especially for her daughter.
Allah says in Surah Luqman
And we have stressed on man concerning his parents, his mother bore him undergoing weakness upon weakness and his weaning takes two years that give thanks to Me and to your parents. Lastly, the return is towards me.
According to Ayat, we on over self that we should respect parents and look after them when they become old as they look after us .according to hadith a Muslim is that who obedience Allah and obedience the Prophet and his parents.
Woman as Wife
40 Centuries ago, when Islam came on the world, it gave the rights to the women which included also
Rights of wife’s
About the rights of wives the Prophets Hazrat Muhammad Muhammad (S.A.W.W) said that “ The most perfect in faith among you in one who is good and lenient to his wife and the best among you is one who is the best for his wife, and I am most perfect in faith among you as I treat my women (wives) with great kindness.” [ Trimzi]
“And treat them with virtuous goodness.” [Muslim]
“if the woman demands a cook as a necessity, the man should provide the made for her service if the woman is such as unused to do household chores or is unable to do it”
Our prophet Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W.W) said: “how could they beat their women in daytime as slaves and sleep with them in the night?
When husband and wife look at each other with love, Allah looks at both of them with his mercy.
The relationship between a husband and his wife should be like the relationship of hand and an Eye. If the eye cries, the hand should always be there to wipe its tears. Just like the husband wipes the wife’s Tears.
Allah is pleased when the husband play with his wife. Due to this, he fixes his (good reward) for them or he established halal Provision for them.
Equal Pay For Equal Work For Women
Women are struggling for their rights for equal pay to equal works. This paper will explore some of the
Causes of wage differences between women and men as well as acts that have been put in places to deal with the issue. The article will also analyze the reasons why for many years now, there was a disparity in wages.
It is now illegal to pay women and men different wages for the same. This follows the implementation of the Equal pay Act of 1963. There is no solid argument against payment equality for the same work between both genders. It is also evident that men do some jobs better than women and in many cases, equal work is not solely considered a pay determinant (E. laws.gov.on.ca, 2014.p.1).
Traditionally in American society, a woman was entitled with the responsibility of being a homemaker or being a caretaker. Even when they went against this kind of stereotype to do other jobs, they are given the same opportunity when it comes to set for a specific job. Women are supposed to receive equal pay just like men based on the fact that they are sole providers of their families.
In 1940s men were also fully responsible for their families. The roles were however interrupted following World War 2 when men went fighting. This forced many women to take up labor forced duties and even though many of them did the same jobs as men, the pays were different when determining pays rates, there are two factors that are considered. The supply of labor for a particular job is one of the factors.
For instance, if skilled labors are few, the pay will be high (Levine, 2002, p.1). Secondly, the employers, government for trader unions can decide salaries and wages for their employers. It is a fact that women are paid low wages and salaries in many parts Of the globe despite the fact that they did the same jobs as men. This is an indication that unions do not focus more on the duties carried out by women.
Similarly, the number of women is high and can comfortably work for a short period.
Several arguments have also been raised against women\s equal pay. Single women, for instance, are not supposed to earn similar salaries like married men.
