Why Do Women Come To Islam?


Since Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, thousands of people embrace Islam every month, including the west. But many of you will be surprised to know that most people who embrace Islam are women. 66% of them are women and 34% are men. Thus, women are almost twice more than men accept Islam.

The question is why do so many women are converting to Islam, while we often hear that Islam prevents rights and oppressing women, women in Islam have no freedom. If all this is true, why are so many women are turning to Islam? Why Western women come in Islam?

The answer lies in the fact that Islam allows women the rights, protection, honor and freedom, while the Western world simply uses a woman as an instrument of pleasure.

Islam gives women's rights as a mother, as a wife, as a daughter. Prior to Islam, women were treated as slaves and property. Birth of a girl was considered a bad event, and they were often killed after birth. Allah says in the Quran:

"And when one of them is informed of [the birth of] a female, his face becomes dark, and he suppresses grief. He hides himself from the people because of the ill of which he has been informed. Should he keep it in humiliation or bury it in the ground? Unquestionably, evil is what they decide". (The Quran, 16:58-59)

In another verse:

"O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear Allah , through whom you ask one another, and the wombs. Indeed Allah is ever, over you, an Observer". (The Quran, 4:1)

There are several verses of the Quran, which says about women's rights. Islam gives women rights and status of women in Islam is very high. The best evidence of this is the large number of women who come to Islam every day.

When she is the daughter, she opens the door to heaven for her father.

When she becomes a wife, she completes half of her husband's faith.

When she is a mother, Paradise is under her feet.

If everyone knew the true status of Muslim women in Islam, even the men would want to be women.
