Women in Islam

How do women fit into islam? What is their fate?

This has been the subject of many a debate

‘for the believing men and women, is a great reward’

this is from surah al azaab, the words of our Lord

it can be seen from reading the holy Quran

that a woman has some privilege over a man

praying is exempted during menstruation

here islam gives women consideration

a woman after marriage becomes a wife

for nine long months she carries new life

during childbirth she is exempted to fast

islam is against the burying of girls in the past

they can pray at the mosque or even at home

they may marry or divorce ,its their choice, their own

after marriage she can retain her old maiden name

and is rewarded for treating all her offspring the same

once they are married they should live pious lives

‘and the best men are those who are best to their wives’

islam shows equality my sisters and brothers

don’t forget paradise lies at the feet of your mothers

women in the UK had property rights from 1938

this right was given by islam, 14 centuries to date

in the UK, women could vote from 1918

this was stated 1400 years ago in islam our deen

women can work and lead a happily married life

but shouldn’t neglect her role as mother and wife

a woman for her child’s upbringing, deserves her credit

islam also gives a woman the right to inherit

a woman’s status in islam, we should never neglect

in islam they are favoured and deserve their respect
