Did Muhammad ﷺ Believe in Women’s Rights?

Dalia Mogahed


The Quran states that men and women were created to be equal parts of a pair. Considering women in the West received the right to vote, inherit and own property thirteen centuries later, the Prophet (pbuh) teachings were both radical and revolutionary. For example, Muslim women gained full ownership over their money, while husbands had the responsibility to provide for them even if their wives were wealthier than them. This talk will address the various myths about women in Islam, and will highlight specific examples of how the Prophet (pbuh) improved women’s position in a society where they were buried alive.
