Women Status in Islam - Myths Clarified.

Recently I just received a question on one of my posts. The Question was very unique from all the others. It was evident that there was a fake myth and conspiracy behind that question. So, I thought I must clarify that according to my very less knowledge.

When I asked him to quote what he was just blaming, he quoted something like this:

I tried myself best to explain his myths there and as it was a positive point I am just copy pasting the reply here as well. 

The Women Rights in Islam.
Well my friend said that Quran says: "The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females" and also some other verses like that. This verse is for the distribution of wealth left by a father after his death. You must have read the whole context instead of copying only this part. In Islam the male gets double of the wealth of female or daughter because the daughter when married to any person. His husband also must give a complete share from his wealth to wife after death. So technically the women got equal. While the male getting twice the women have to pay that to her wife after marriage. 😊

“And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women.” This verse is about the court hearings. The time when Hazrat Muhammad PBUH came. The women status was much less in society. A girl born was buried alive in sands. In that scenario girls had no confidence in going out and dealing out affairs. They didn’t understand the society affairs plus they were less aware about the patterns of society. The evils that retain in the society and the beds and injustices. Researches also say that women are more sensible emotionally. That’s why because at that scenario the women had that status, so they demanded two men to maintain strength in the decision.

Quran (2:228) - "and the men are a degree above them [women]" Yes men are degree above women in duties. In bounds of family protection and feeding. In dealing out all the matters that are necessary for the secure and peaceful of life of women. Not in the rights but in the duties, Men are a degree above to men.

Quran (5:6) - "And if ye are unclean, purify yourselves. And if ye are sick or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it". Here the “contact” means sexual contact with wife. In Islam it is necessary to bath after this contact. After having contact(sexual), A Muslim is no more in the state to pray that’s why it is obligatory for him to bath.

Quran (2:223) - "Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so, approach your tilth when or how ye will..." Well the actual meaning of tilth according to dictionaries is “prepared surface soil”, “in respect to suitability for sowing seeds”. Biological sciences reveal that women are the place of fertilization. Fertilization takes place in the uterus of female. And the same happens in crop growing. Seed starts its germination in sand(cultivatable). Similarly, the word tilt is used as a metaphor here. So, men have to approach the female whenever they want to have kids (by mutual understanding).

Quran (4:3) - (Wife-to-husband ratio) "Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four". Yes! Islam allows men to marry up to 4 women and this is to eradicate the illegal relations of one men with other women. As it happens in western states. A boy makes a relation with girl, they do sex and then makes another relation and so on. Human is not perfect. They make mistakes. Maybe if a Muslim makes a mistake by marrying a woman that is not good either religiously or morally. So, instead of having secret relations with other females over her wife. Islam gives the way to do this by marrying her and this marriage is made only when the older wife is agreed or left.

Quran (53:27) - "Those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names." Again already stated disbelievers of that society thought females as a piece of sex and  joy and had no respect and they thought is use less in society, to them women were just like an abuse. That’s why to des respect angels they called them women.

Quran (4:24) and Quran (33:50) - A man is permitted to take women as sex slaves outside of marriage. Note that the verse distinguishes wives from captives (those whom they right hand possesses). Well if you read these verses complete you will see that these are about those women who are not allowed to be married with. At that time disbelievers did many battles and conflicts with Muslims and they occupied their lands and families and similarly When Muslims invaded them they ran away leaving their families behind. So, according to the teaching of Islam women and children are not allowed to kill in war or any situation. Those women (left behind by disbelievers) were to be added to Muslims community. They were expressed the teaching of Islam and if that molded their heart toward Islam they were added and if they didn’t feel satisfying with that they were kept like captives. And protection and rights of captives were also a duty, So that’s why different males took the duty of those captives and they lived with them just like wives, they enjoyed the complete rights of wives until they accepted Islam (after accepting Islam they were married properly in Islamic way if she wanted to) .

All these verses quoted by you completely express that you are intensely brainwashed by the present media and the society that Islam differentiates with women , and Muslims don’t respect women, They don’t give them their rights. Yes! there are some and every nation has illiterate people. They are also illiterate. And you study those illiterates and guess by yourself the whole Islam. Study Islam for understanding it not for criticizing it only then you will know the reality. 😊
