Woman – for what she was created by Allah? The role of women in Islam


If we look closely at the world around us and think about the essence of the creation of things, we realize that women are created to maintain balance. Thanks to a woman in a society there is peace and harmony in the family - peace and serenity. Man and woman were created as part of a single whole, therefore, the spiritual serenity found only in each other. They complement each other, hide flaws, meet their needs, both spiritual and physiological.

A woman is, first of all, the person, the higher the creation of Allah. Look at her as a home cook or maid is extremely misleading.

First of all, a woman has her duties before the Almighty Allah. He should meet all the religious orders, while it does not matter age and social status, physical appearance and spiritual state. For each woman, who reached the age of majority, the execution of the Divine precepts is fard (obligatory). At the beginning of Fard is recognition that the only God and full obedience to His will. After Iman (faith) she should perform prayers and safeguarding her chastity.

The second duty of a woman is the organization of the family and the status of the mother – the continuation of the offspring.

The third duty of a woman is to be a life companion of her husband, in all support him.

If a man and a woman will try to understand each other and are constantly help each other, their house turned into a garden of Paradise, where there is love and the consent.

On the purpose of the creation of woman Almighty Allah states the following:

“And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you affection and mercy. Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought”. (The Quran, 30:21)

It is reported that Anas (radyyallahu anhu) said:

“A group of three men came to the houses of the wives of the Prophet asking how the Prophet (peace be upon him) worshipped (Allah), and when they were informed about that, they considered their worship insufficient and said, "Where are we from the Prophet as his past and future sins have been forgiven!”

One of them said, 'I will pray all of every night.' Another said, 'I will fast all the time and not break the fast.' The other said, "I will withdraw from women and never marry.' The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, came to them and said, 'Are you the ones who said such-and-such? By Allah, I am the one among you with the most fear and awareness of Allah, but I fast and break the fast, I pray and I sleep, and I marry women. Whoever disdains my sunna is not with me!”” (Bukhari)
