*!* The Precious Woman *!*


SHE is the mother, sister, daughter or wife. She is a guarded jewel. This guarded jewel will never become a girl-friend or a mistress. The woman is the most important and effective member of the family structure. Therefore, Islam respects the woman and gives her the position that suits her nature.

Woman has been given a great portion in Islam. The Almighty God (Allah) has revealed one chapter named Surah Al-Nisa (Chapter of the Woman). The Holy Qur'an contains so many verses and chapters, which clarify and explain the rights of the woman. Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) has explained the rules and regulations which organize the life of the woman. These are for her personal protection, first and foremost. Secondly, to protect her rights.

Woman has obtained the greatest rights and position in the sight of Allah - the right of respect as a mother, the right of care as a daughter or sister, the right of good companionship as a wife.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) advised Muslims in his Last Sermon: "Treat women kindly."

Nothing and no one can preserve and give the woman her rights as the Creator of the woman has. Whomsoever wants to know about these rights, must read the Greatest, Godly constitution about woman, the Holy Qur'an. Also the authentic traditions of the last and final messenger, Muhammad (peace be on him). Anyone who tries to put any other constitution or system in regards to the woman, other than that from the Creator of the woman, will fail. Why? Because if we really want to give the woman her rights, we must first know the nature of woman. Almighty God alone knows the true nature of woman. Therefore, He has revealed the rights and regulations, which are fitting to her nature.

If we examine what the man-made systems have brought the woman, we find that those who are claiming themselves as defenders of the woman's rights, have actually taken them away from her. They think that they have honoured her, but actually they have abused her. In the name of false civilization, woman was brought out of their private kingdom, her home. Then she lost her position, her identity and her rights. Those who are bringing the woman out of her home, in the name of giving her freedom or equalizing between man and woman, are only cheating her. The woman can never be like the man! Man has his own physiological tasks, and woman has her own physiological tasks.

"But when she delivered her, she said: "My Lord, I have delivered a female. And Allah was most knowing of what she delivered, and the male is not like the female..." (Qur'an 3:36)
