from our friends in islamicity.org,
the most comprehensive website about Islam ever made, we
provide some answers to frequently asked questions about
Islam. Each week, we will post a question and an answer for
it. For a complete list of all Questions and answers in islamicity.org,
please visit their Questions
and Answers web page.
We believe it is useful for our Muslim visitors just as well
as it is useful for our non-Muslim visitors. You can probably
find an answer to every question you may have in mind. If you
don't find one, they have a question form which you can send
in your question and they will post an answer for it shortly.
whom it may concern: Can you please give me a breif
discription of how women are treated like in islam?"
J.V. Greetings from Islamicity's Imam. Women in Islam are
treated with utmost respect and have many rights. It is
important that you differentiate between the way Muslim
women are treated in Islam versus how some of them are
treated in the Muslim world. Sometimes, pre-Islamic culture
and traditions prevail and misconception is built upon
appearances. Women in Islam have the right to be educated,
to work, and to participate in all activities in the society
that preserve their sanctity and protection. Women also have
a very special status in Islam, as mothers and wives, and
their husbands have to provide them with all of the
necessities of life and to treat them with gentleness."
