Islamic Perspectives

The Prophet (pbuh) on women

  •  “The rights of women are sacred. See that women are maintained according to the rights accorded to them.”
  •  “God enjoins you to treat women well, for they are your mothers, daughters, aunts.”
  •  “Shall I not point out to you the best of virtues? It is your doing good to your daughter when she is returned to you having been divorced by her husband.”
  •  “Whoever does good to girls, it will be a screen to him from Hellfire.”
  •  “Women are the twin halves of men.”
  •  “A Muslim must not hate his wife; and if he be displeased with one bad quality in her, then let him be pleased with another that is good.”
  •  “Admonish your wives with kindness.”
