Women in Islam Compared to Their Status in Other Civilizations and Religions


How was the status of the woman in the past? She was a commodity to be bought and sold, disrespected and dishonored. She was sold just like an animal or a piece of furniture; she was forced to get married or commit adultery. She did not inherit or own money; her husband took over her money if she had some without her permission. Some ignorant cultures went even beyond that, in discussing whether she is a human being with a soul and spirit just like a man! After all this, some societies accuse Islam of persecuting and oppressing women, dealing with them in an injustice way. In this film, we are discussing all these points and the way Islam gave women all their rights.
