By Angela Guzman In many cases, outsiders looking in at the women in Islam perceive their role to be one associated with several negative connotations.
Pertaining to respecting the parents in their old age, Allah Almighty says in Quran: When one or both of them attains old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor repel them but address them in terms of honor. Therefore, when treating parents with respect and care, no Muslim is allowed to discriminate between father and mother, and must ensure that they both are cared well.
B Sister And Daughter: The other role that women have to play in a Muslim society is that of daughters and sisters.
The following points illustrate how Islam sanctifies the role of the mother. Emphasis on choosing a good wife. Islam advocates choosing of a wife based on moral characteristics. The Holy Prophet says: Marry into a decent family, for genes have effects. Chapter 1: The Parents Responsibility In the eyes of Islam the status of the father and the mother is very exalted. Allah, the Holy Prophet and the Infallible Imams have exhorted the people in this regard. Woman in Islam: Role as Mother (Status of Mother in Islam, Muslim Mother, Islamic Mother) Apart from her role as a wife, the Muslim woman has a very important role as mother. The status and value attached to parents in the Muslim world is very high.
Islam ensures that in both these roles women enjoy utmost respect, care and protection. In Islam both male child and female child are equal and a parent is as responsible for the education and upbringing of female children as they are responsible for male children.
Moreover, as far as the brother sister relation is concerned, it is respected in Islam and brothers and sisters are to respect and treat each other well. In Quran, Allah Almighty says: The fourth role that women have to play, which brings respect to them is the role of wives.
Islam is the first religion that established the rights of women as wives and associated the element of having a say in filial matters as well as respect with them.
Allah Almighty says about wives in Quran in the following way: Therefore, the love that produces tranquility is put in the heart of both the partners, hence, husband and wife both have the duty of caring and loving each other for a healthy relationship.
Moreover, Allah Almighty also said in Quran: Being virtuous and pious is the other kind of role that women play in the Islamic society. As discussed earlier that in the pre Islamic era, women were considered synonymous with evil, therefore, the abode of virtue and piety was not something that was given to women, hence they lived their life in ignorane and tyranny.
However, with the advent of Islam, the old stereotypes were challenged and Islam claimed that women have the same tendency of being virtuous and pious as men do. We created you from a single pair of male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honorable of you in the sigh of Allah is the one who is the most God-fearing.
A Muslim women can be and is as righteous and pious out of the fear of God as is a Muslim man. At another instance, Allah Almighty says: Therefore, being a woman in Islam does not make a person less competitive pertaining to virtue and piety compared to men. Hence, women have to play their role in achieving piety and virtuousness in society and propagate it to others as well.
Role In Matrimonial Relationship: The common misconception about Islam is that people think that it is a male dominated religion where man enjoys authority over women, especially when it comes to matrimonial relationship.
The fact is quite contrary, where women have an equal stake in the matrimonial relationship and has her say in matters of the relationship.
The first thing that shows the rights Islam has given to women pertaining to their matrimonial role is the freedom of marrying someone out of their consent. Therefore, the practice of forcing women to marry someone against their will is not Islamic at all. Secondly, the attribute of compromise is associated only to women in the world of today with regards to matrimonial relationship.
The fact is contrary in Islam, where Islam says that both man and wife have to work towards bettering of relationship and in this regard men should also compromise the way women do.
