Islam respects the Woman
"The Prophet (S.A.) said "Allah the Exalted is more kind to females than males. Whoever brings pleasure to a woman of his close relatives, Allah will please him on the Judgement Day".
The Imam Al-Sadiq (a.s.) said:
"Sons are a favor and daughters are good deeds, Allah questions about the favors, but rewards the good deeds."
The above were some of the examples from Islamic texts concerning woman. It is clear that Islam has called her to be honored, affectionately treated and cared for in an unprecedented way, which no other civilization, culture and society has ever done.
What we have just related is a proof of the spirit of Islam, which came to honor mankind, protect their rights and to spread the wings of mercy all over the world.
We have not sent you but as a mercy to the worlds."
The Holy Qur'an (21: 107)
Therefore, Islam, through the above-mentioned text, speaks respectfully of woman- the mother, the wife, the daughter, the sister, endears her and takes care of her, stressing her being worthy of affection, mercy and generosity. It recommends woman before recommending man. It regards the love of woman as a sign of faith.
Nay, it even raises this love of woman to the level of being a
`prophetic conduct', and it looks at her as a trustee who looks after a person's wealth, religion and secrets.
