Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Islam Today I 1 Feb. 2006
There is a common belief that Islam gives a higher status to men in comparison to women. This is misconception in the truest sense of the word.
Contrary to the common misconception that Islam holds men superior to women, Islam actually gives equal status to women as that of men. The Quran says:
“You are members, one of another.” (3:195)
This means that there is no difference between the two as regards status, rights and blessings both in this world and in the Hereafter.
