Abstract

Socially, a woman has a pivotal role in a society. Her position or function in a society is as important as a nucleus has in a living cell. The very first and foremost socialization process of a child starts by a woman (mother). Further, every child becomes a part (good or bad) of a society and performs as he was trained by his/her mother. For this reason, every woman can partially fulfill the demands of a society. In a society, good or bad treatment with women means the transformation of same attitude, behavior and manners into next generations. Women have been empowered socially and legally by Islam. They have been given proper social status and due rights. They have been protected legally from birth to death. Regionally, some bad customs against women have also been adopted by Muslims like: domestic violence, honor killing, Karo Kari and Wani in different areas. This paper is to elaborate the women’s rights determined by Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ). The main objective of this study is, to highlight the distinctions of Islam for women. A descriptive research method has been used for this study.
