Importance of Good Conduct to Women in Islam

In terms of Islamic law women obtain particular rights and volubility. Holy Religion of Islam recommends each individual to implement women Islamic rights in all different fields.

Women gained significant position by a major social relation. For instance, woman is a precious creature with a heart, full of pure love which is known as mother. Holy Islam gives much importance to the rights of mothers and obligates everybody to do favor to their mothers. As Abu-Huraira narrates that a person came to Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U) and asked (Who is more deserving for better behavior?) Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U) said: “Your mother”. The man asked: “After then?” Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U) said: “Your mother”. The man again asked: “who then?” Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U) said: “Your Mother”. The man asked again: “then”. Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U) said: “Your Father.”
This holy sayings of Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U) broadly determines that Mother rights is three times higher than Father‘s rights.

Woman is wife who has the capabilities to create basic and a strong structure to a family. She is always in seeking of providing all materialist and spiritual demands of her family members and she is able enough to make a community profitable by treating and educating her children. Holy religion of Islam invites all human beings to be well mannered to their wives.
Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U) says: “The most complete person according to Islamic faith is the one who has good ethic and the best one amongst you is the one who has better behavior for his wife.”

Islam not only gain woman volubility in the role of wife and mother but also provides her with Islamic values in the role of a family child too.
Hazrat Aysha (Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U)‘s wife ) narratives that one day a woman with her two daughters came to their house and begged. She didn’t have anything at home except she gave her. The woman didn’t ate it instead she distributed it between her daughters and they went. When Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U) came to house, Hazrat Aysha mentioned him the story of the woman. Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U) said: “The person who is examined by things referring to daughters and provide them by favors, there will be a veil saving him from hill.

It is concluded from the all the mentioned sayings of Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U) him that according to Holy Religion of Islam, women gain much significance by playing different roles in the society and makes everybody to behave them well and as well implement all the Islamic women’s rights in different social fields so if the Islamic rights of women is implemented in all communities, there wouldn’t be any violence against women. Accordingly, the women can perform all the social activities in a safe environment such as getting higher education and other activities in numerous filed by demonstrating and developing their talent and skills and they can be benefited of all positive opportunities of the society. In this case, woman doesn’t only provide services to the family but also to the community.

Raised Christian, I am so

Raised Christian, I am so happy to learn more about the beauty of Islam, especially from a womens perspective. It is so exciting that the value you of women are shown through accomplishment, love, and the pursuit for greatness. I love the many roles that women take where I appreciate the importance that is placed on being a mother. I was wondering in Afghanistan what do you see that is showing the advancement of women?

miss-interpretations of the Koran

Dear Nadima,

It is encouraging to learn that the sayings of Hazrat Mohammad are based in treating women with respect and non-violence. I have learned so much from you and from the other Muslim women in our community who have shared the scriptures of Mohammad, which instruct a woman's equality with man. And that it has been the extremists whose miss-interpretations of the Koran lead to violence against women. Thank you for sharing your voice, and spreading the true word of Hazrat Mohammad.

In friendship,
