Women's Liberation through Islam

Today people think that women are liberated in the West and that the women's liberation movement began in the 20th century. Actually, the women's liberation movement was not begun by women but was revealed by God to a man in the seventh century by the name of Muhammad (peace be upon him), who is known as the last Prophet of Islam. The Qur'an and the Traditions of the Prophet (Hadith or Sunnah) are the sources from which every Muslim woman derives her rights and duties.

The complete list:

I think women have been misunderstood. For this reason, the Western "womens' rights" groups merely want exact same rights as men. Which is unnatural because men and women are not exactly the same although our most fundamental needs are. Women have a bit different sort of rights which include extra or special rights which should be recognized and these are incumbent upon the entire society. For example, a woman is not at par in physical / muscular strength, there it is her right upon the society that she may be helped with, say, carrying heavy baggage, or that she should be protected, given shelter, dealt with more politely and shown more courtesy. She should not be subjected to the same kind of physically strenuous labor as men. It's only natural. She should be sympathized with. Because she is a guest with her father who is her first guardian in this world, and then she reaches a new place - her husband's house, and after her husband she is at the mercy of her children. While as a daughter she receives half of the share of her father's left behinds, she may also share in her husband's left behinds, and has a right to her child's left behinds as well if such a situation arises. I can only conclude that the woman needs to be understood first and foremost and that there is a lack of this understanding. While she should be treated with a certain kind of respect, she should also be allocated roles that suit her according to her natural design, as God intended, and that she should be treated with care.
