Best of the best ever y’all will read insha Allah

1. If a man betrayed his wife, his penalty would be stoning to death.
2. If a man married a second wife, yet he didn’t deal with both justly, he will come on the Day of Judgment with half of his body sloping. (Leant)
3. If he sets a dowry for her (whether it’s money or tangible stuff), yet he abstained from giving it to her, then he is a thief.
4. If he divorced her, he has absolutely no right to take anything from her, from which he had already given her, i.e. dowry.
5. If he deprived her from her right of inheritance, regardless of her statues (mother, daughter, wife, sister, etc.…) then he has transgressed the limits of Allah, and whoever does that, then he is among the wrongdoers.
6. If he hit her and disregarded her, then he is a despicable man; and if he honors her, then he is an honorable man.
7. If he abandoned her for more than 4 months (Al-Ela’a), she has the option of divorce.
8. He has no right to treat her like his mother, and if he said that she is forbidden to him like his mother’s back (Az-Zihar) and wish to free himself later from what he uttered, the penalty is the freeing of a slave, before they touch each other; and he who can’t do that, must fast two successive months before they both touch each other; and if he is unable to so, he must feed 60 poor people.
9. If he disliked her, he must be patient; it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings through it a great deal of good.
10. If he divorced her, he should never forget her graciousness and tolerance.
11. If they got divorced, he should never deprive her of her children, and he must be financially responsible for them (Nafaqa).
12. She is free to do whatever she pleases with her own money; if she helped him, it is considered a charity and she’ll be double rewarded; and if she keeps it to herself, then he has no right to force her.

13. Any transgression that is done against her by him, then he’ll be punished with the same action done against her equally and fairly (Qesas). He is responsible to make sure that her sustenance, outfits and housing are available to her according to his own means and limits.
14. His protection and maintenance towards her is an obligation, yet her obedience is a struggle for the sake of Allah (Jihad).
15. If he commands her to do the right things, she should obey him; otherwise, there is no obedience for a creature who asks to disobey the Creator. Later on, if she decided to initiate a divorce, she can give him back his dowry and abandon him (Khul’ in Islam: the right of woman to initiate a divorce).

16. For her sake, the prophet peace be upon him started a battle against the Jewish tribe “Banu Qaynuqa”.

17. To defend her honour, dying is considered a martyrdom (Shahada) for the sake of Allah.

18. For her sake, the Mo’tasem moved an entire army to Ammoreya.

19. For the sake of her virtue and reputation, Allah has set a penalty of 80 whip for anyone who allegedly and untruthfully accuse her of adultery, without having no less than four eye witnesses to support his claim.

20. Her education is obligatory, yet working is commendable while taking into consideration religious limits and standards.

21. And most importantly, Prophet peace and blessings be upon him said in the long hadith to a man who wanted to go out do jihad with the army: “…Then stay with her, for paradise is beneath her feet”. Pointing out that staying with the mother, obeying her, pleasing her, nurturing her, and being humble to her is the greatest path to paradise.
And the list goes on…

🌹The Equality of men and women
🌸 Quran states that all believers are equal and that only righteous deeds elevate one person above another.  Believers therefore have an immense respect for pious men and women and Islamic history also tells us that both men and women served and showed righteousness in all areas.  A woman, like a man, is obligated to worship God and fulfill the duties upon her.  It is thus required that every woman testify that there is none deserving worship but God, and that Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him,  is His Messenger; to pray; to give charity; to fast; and to perform the pilgrimage to God’s House if she has the means and ability to do so.  It is also required that every woman to believe in God, His angels, His scriptures, His Messengers, the Last Day, and to believe in God’s decree.  It is also required that every woman worship God as if she sees Him.
“And whoever does righteous good deeds, male or female, and is a (true) believer in the Oneness of God such will enter Paradise and not the least injustice, even to the size of a speck on the back of a date-stone, will be done to them.” (Quran 2:124)
Islam however recognizes that equality does not mean that men and women are the same.  It takes into account their differences in physiology, nature and temperament. It is not a question of superiority or inferiority, rather a question of natural abilities and having different roles in life. The laws of Islam are just and fair and take these aspects into consideration. Men have been assigned the duty to work and provide for their family and women have been assigned the role of motherhood and homemaking.  Islam states however that that the roles are not exclusive nor are they inflexible.  Women can work or serve society and men are able to take responsibility for their children or their household.  It is interesting to note that where women choose to work the money they earn is their own however a man must provide financially for the whole family.
