Women In Shariah ( Islamic Law)
Allah has created man and women to play distinct roles in human society and a women's biology and physique best suit her, at base, for the maternal role so necessary in the creation of healthy and happy families.
Islam has thus made women an honoured partner of man in raising a family. A chaste and virtuous woman is a blessing to her household, and makes her children virtuous in the way of Allah. Muslim women correctly appreciate this role laid down by Allah and His Messengers and take pride in fulfilling it.
