STATUS OF WOMEN AS SEEN FROM THE QURAN
Unknown - XKP$4.99
The Qur'an declares that the male and the female are equal in status and utility as both have been created by Allah. Unlike the Bible, which states that Eve (woman) was created from Adam's rib (See Genesis 2:4, 3:24), the Qur'an informs us that both the male as well as the female were created out of one single source material called "Nafsin wahida".
"O Mankind! be careful of (your duty to) your Sustainer, Who created you (all humans, men as well as women) from a single Self and created from it, its complimentary pair and spread from these two, many men and women; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, by Whom you demand one of another (your rights), and (to) the ties of relationship; surely Allah ever watches over you." (4:1) "He it is Who created you (o human beings) from a single self , and made from her, her complimentary pair, that she may find peace in her.." (7:189)
