The Position of Women in Islam
The position of women in society has often been the subject of much debate. Islam’s
position regarding this has usually been presented to the Western reader with little objectivity.
This paper is intended to provide a brief and accurate explanation of the Islamic stance, drawing
upon the authentic sources of the Qur’an (God’s final revelation) and Hadeeth (sayings, actions
and approvals of Prophet Muhammad, (P).
