have fewer rights concerning divorce (2:28) - "Divorced
women shall wait concerning themselves for three monthly
periods. Nor is it lawful for them to hide what Allah
hath created in their wombs, if they have faith in Allah and
the Last Day. And their husbands have the better right
to take them back in that period, if they wish for
reconciliation. And women shall have rights similar to
the rights against them, according to what is equitable; but
men have a degree over them. And Allah is Exalted in
Muslim men may
marry up to four women (4:3) - "If ye fear that ye shall
not be able to deal justly with the orphans, Marry women of
your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye
shall not be able to deal justly, then only one, or a
captive that your rights hands possess, that will be more
suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice,"
inheritance should be a portion of two females (4:11) -
"Allah directs you as regards your Children's inheritance:
to the male, a portion equal to that of two females: if only
daughters, two or more, their share is two-thirds of the
inheritance; if only one, her share is a half,"
acceptable to beat women (4:34) - "Men are the
protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given
the one more strength than the other, and because they
support them from their means. Therefore the righteous
women are devoutly obedient, and guard in the husband's
absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those
women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill conduct,
admonish them first, then refuse to share their beds, and
last beat them lightly; but if they return to obedience,
seek not against them Means of annoyance: For Allah is
Most High, great above you all."

before them has touched." (56:35-38) "We have created
their companions of special creation. And made them
virgin pure and undefiled, - Beloved by nature, equal in
age, - For the Companions of the Right Hand,"
(78:31-33) "Verily for the Righteous there will be a
fulfillment of the heart's desires; Gardens enclosed, and
grapevines, and voluptuous women of equal age,"

women and said, "O women! Give alms, as I have seen
that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you
women." they asked, "Why is it so, O Allah's Apostle?"
He replied, "You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your
husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in
intelligence and religion than you. a cautious
sensible man could be led astray by some of you." the
women asked, "O Allah's Apostle! What is deficient in
our intelligence and religion?" He said, "Is not the
evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?"
They replied in the affirmative. He said, "This is the
deficiency in her intelligence. Isn't it true that a
woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?"
The women replied in the affirmative. He said, "This
is the deficiency in her religion."
