Men and Women: Equal in the Sight of God; Submitters Perspective June 1998


Equal in the Sight of God

O people, we created you from the same male and female,

and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one

The best among you in the sight of God is the most righteous.

God is Omniscient, Cognizant (49:13)

Are men and women created equal? The traditional
Muslim would answer this question with a “NO” but the Quran
teaches otherwise. Let us look at Verse 3:195. It says:

Their Lord responded to them: “I never fail to reward
any worker among you for any work you do, be you male or female—you
are equal to one another.

The verse goes on to say

Thus, those who immigrate, and get evicted from their homes,
and are persecuted because of Me, and fight and get killed, I will surely
remit their sins and admit them into gardens with flowing streams.”
Such is the reward from God. God possesses the ultimate reward. (3:195)

This verse tells us that men and women are
equal. It clearly states that we can all work, fight, die and be persecuted
for God, but for the reward of their righteous works, both men and women
are in fact equal to each other in the sight of God.

On the traditional side, what does Hadith say? Bukhari wrote: “Women
are naturally, morally and religiously defective.

He did not say a woman, that woman, or that group of women. He said
women. Not only is Bukhari wrong, he contradicts what the Quran says.
The problem is that some men and women take the words of men (Sunnah and
Hadiths) over God’s word (Holy Quran) and some people have gone
as far as to accept both as sources

of guidance. God says in Verse 18:27 that

You shall recite what is revealed to you of your Lord’s
scripture. Nothing shall abrogate His words, and you shall not find any
other source beside it. (18:27)

God has told us not to find any source besides His scripture. And a lot
of women have suffered because people tend to follow the words of Bukhari,
Ibn Hambali, Ibn Majah, Ibn Kathir and other hadith narrators, instead
of the Quran. If God wanted us to follow Sunnah and Hadith, He would have
made them part of the Quran. They are not in the Quran, they are not part
of the Quran, and they don’t help you understand the Quran. God
says in the Quran:


Important note to learn and Read Quran online

The Holy Quran is the word of Allah; it has been sent down to guide us and the guidance can online be gained through reading quran online. No other book can be like holy quran. As you come to the learn tajweed quran, Allah speaks to you and reading Arabic Quran is to hear Him, even to converse with Him, and to walk in His ways. So it is must for us as a Muslim to learn and do quran memorization by heart and the Quran tutor should teach the kids from quran qaida and then teaching quran online along with the quran tafseer and let the kids memorize quran so that we as Muslim could learn quran tajweed rules and then understand the quran tafseer  It is the encounter of life with the Life-giver. 'God - there is no god but He, the Ever-living, the Self-subsisting (by whom all subsist)  He has sent down upon you the Book with the Truth ... as a guidance unto mankind ...' (Al 'Imran 3: 2-3 learn quran recitation). So we should always remember the guidance of Allah and we should be listening to quran online along with obeying the commandments of Allah so let us join hands to lean the Koran and let our kids do quran memorization and learn the teaching of quran education online and apply them in there life there is kids quran lesson available online as well
