Abstract

During the Days of Ignorance, before the advent of Islam, women were treated like cattle, devoid of humanity, deprived of all rights, whatsoever. In those days of darkness the people did not recognise any rights due to women who were tolerated in the houses no better than pet animals like goats and sheep. But Islam completely equates woman with man in the sight of God in terms of her rights and responsibilities. Despite the social acceptance of female infanticide among some Arabian tribes, the Qur'an forbade this custom, and considered it a crime like any other murder. According to Islamic Law, women cannot be forced to marry anyone without their consent. Islam decreed a right of which woman was deprived both before Islam, the right of independent ownership.
