The Status of The Women in Islam By Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzaan
Al-Islām has given to the status of the woman and her position within Al-Islām and that she has a great status within Al-Islām; a prestigious status; a status of respect, and she is not an object of enjoyment. Rather, she has a place within the Masjid and she has a status within the society. She has a status within the home and she has a right as it relates to the inheritance; she has a right as it relates to buying and selling and ownership. She may own that which Allāh permits for her to own. Thus is the woman within Al-Islām and this is her status.
