16. Woman in Islam

Islam is a special blessing

The Prophet of Islam is indeed the greatest Single benefactor for womenfolk

Islam has given woman rights and privileges that she has never enjoyed under other Religious or constitutional system. The sacred text of the glorious Qur’an bear witness to that fact that woman is, at least.

As vital to life as man himself, and that she is not inferior to him.

The Qur’an provides clear-cut evidence that woman is completely equated with man in the sight of God in terms of her rights and responsibilities.

This equality is part of equality between all people (black/white/yellow), poor or rich, Good only judge human according to there worship and the good work they do.

In Qur’an God said: “every soul will be (held) in pledge for its deeds” (Qur’an 74:38). So who are more close to God? What’s the measurement? The answer is the good work and obedience to God.

(…So their Lord accepted their prayers, (saying): I will suffer to be lost the work of any of you whether male of female. You precede one from another) (Qur’an 3: 195).

Adams and Eve

Woman according to the Qur’an is not blamed for Adam’s first mistake. Both were jointly wrong in their disobedience to God. Both repented and both were forgiven.

In one verse in fact Adam specially was blamed, “eventually they both (husband and wife) ate the fruit of that tree. Consequently their private parts immediately appeared to each other and they both began to cover them selves with the leaves of paradise. Adam disobeyed his Rabb (Lord) and went astray from the straight (right) path.” (Qur’an20:121)

In the terms of religious obligation, such as the daily Prayer, Fasting, Poor-due and Pilgrimage: Woman is no different from man, in same case indeed, woman has certain advantages over man.

For example:
The woman is exempted from daily prayer and from fasting during her menstrual periods and forty days after childbirth.

She is also exempted from Fasting during pregnancy and when she is nursing her baby or if there is any threat to her health or her baby’s. If the missed Fasting is obligatory (during the month of Ramadan), she can make up for missed days when ever she can.

Another advantage: she does not have to make up for the prayers missed for any of the previous reasons.

Although woman can and did go into the Mosque during the days of the prophet and thereafter attendance the Friday congregational prayer is optional for them while it is mandatory for man.

This is clearly a tender touch of the Islamic teaching for they are considerate of the fact that a woman maybe nursing her baby or caring for him, and thus maybe unable to go out to the Mosque at the time of the prayer.
Islam also takes in to account the psychological and psychological changes associated with her natural female functions.

(…So their Lord accepted their prayers, (saying): I will not suffer to be lost the work of any of you whether male or female. You precede one from another) (Qur’an 3:195)
