their respect and prestige in society. For instance, they have been prohibited from having close contacts with men
and for this purpose restriction of the veil has been imposed on them. Islam has emancipated them from the
obligation of earning their own livelihood so that they are safe from the malicious eyes of evil-minded, and secure
from the sexual lust of men, the way it is happening with women who are working side by side with men in the
West. But it is a curse indeed that due to intellectual immaturity and evil trends, this freedom of women, which has
disgraced and robbed them of the virtues of a chaste life, is liked by many people and they are trying that Muslim
women should also imitate the style of western women. To the people of such crooked thinking, the Islamic
teachings, which ensure the honour and chastity of women, appear to be the yoke of slavery and they want to release
women from it.

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: A woman came to me with her two daughters. She asked me
(for charity) but she found nothing with me except one date-fruit, so I gave it to her. She accepted it and then
divided it between her two daughters and herself ate nothing out of that. She then got up and went out. When
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) came in, and I narrated to him the story, he said,
"He who is involved (in the
responsibility) of (bringing up) daughters, and he is benevolent towards them, they would become protection for him
against Hell-fire".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
This Hadith also tells us about the great merit and reward of kind treatment with daughters.

`Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: A poor woman came to me carrying her two daughters. I
gave her three date-fruits. She gave a date to each of them and then she took up one date-fruit and brought that to her
mouth to eat, but her daughters asked her that also. She then divided between them the date-fruit that she intended to
eat. This (kind) treatment of her impressed me and I mentioned that to Messenger of Allah (PBUH) who said,
'Verily, Allah has assured Jannah for her, because of (this act) of her,'' or said, "He (SWT) has rescued her from
Besides great merit of the upbringing of daughters, this Hadith also tells us that if a wife has secured
general permission from her husband about Sadaqah
(alms and charity)
she can offer Sadaqah, and its reward will be
given to both of them. The former will be entitled to it for paying it, while the latter will be eligible to it for giving
his consent to it.

Abu Shuraih Khuwailid bin `Amr Al-Khuza`i (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH)
"O Allah, I declare inviolable the rights of two weak ones: the orphans and women".
The poor are generally treated callously in human society. Women and orphans are regular victims
of this cruelty. They are deprived of their share in property to which they are entitled under the Islamic law. In some
cases their properties are usurped and they are maltreated at the hands of usurpers. The Prophet (PBUH) has
threatened them with serious consequences to prevent the Muslims from committing such injustice. The attitude of
Muslims and the teachings of Islam in this matter are two different things. How can Islam be blamed for the attitude
of Muslims? It is time Muslims should understand that Islam is getting a bad name because of their bad conduct. As
a result of this they are committing a double crime. On the one hand, they are guilty of usurping others of their
legitimate rights and perpetrating cruelties, and on the other, disgracing their religion. In other words, rather than
