IEA committed to providing women with safe education & work environment

Officials of the Islamic Emirate in a message on the occasion of International Women’s Day congratulated women’s day to Afghan women.
Deputy Prime Minister for Political Affairs Mawlavi Abdul Kabir on international women’s day said that Muslim women particularly Afghan women have played a significant role in different courses of the history.
“Afghan women have played considerable role in the development of education and 20 years of Jihad,” Mawlavi Abdul Kabir said.
He added, Islam gave the same right for either man and woman, considers both as the two wings of the society and respects the rights of women, while the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) is trying to do its best to provide a safe educational and work environment for Afghan women.
This official of the Emirate said that the religion of Islam sees men and women as equal, considers both as two wings of society, and respects the dignity of women. He has emphasized that the Islamic Emirate does not want to deceive women with empty slogans and false promises and use them as a tool to get projects and money.
Meanwhile, IEA is working seriously to prevent the forced marriage of widows, discriminatory treatment, and punishing of them without the commitment of any guilt.
Undoubtedly, women have significant rights in Islam and a woman’s dignity, honor, property, opinion and vote should be respected in the society, as, there is no difference between men and women in human respect and dignity.
Based on Islamic principles women have the right to education, to marry someone of their choice, to retain their identity after marriage, to divorce, to work, to own and sell and live independently under the Islamic rules.
The pride of the Islamic system is that from the very beginning, women have been recognized as having economic, political, family, judicial, and religious rights, and by considering dowry, alimony and spiritual rights, it has provided women in the family system.
Whenever the Holy Quran says about perfection and high human values, women are mentioned along with men.
In the pagan society of pre-Islamic Arabia, the status of women was like slaves who had no rights and dignity and Women would not get share either from parents or spouses as inheritance and the female children were considered shameful and they buried alive, prostitution was rampant, divorce was only in the hands of the husband, inheritance was only for the strong and oppression was widespread.
According to some authors, before Islam, women had the status of property and were considered part of the property of their father or husband.
Fortunately, Islam came and abolished all these practices and discriminations against women.

Even now, in a number of development countries particularly in the western countries, women are not granted respect, dignity and honor, let alone equal pay for equal work, while, Islam regards women as precious and valuable creatures and doesn’t allow anyone to disrespect or disgrace with them.
The mistreatment of women in some Middle-Eastern countries or Muslim families is due to cultural factors that some Muslims wrongly follow, not because of Islam.
Allah created men and women to be different, with unique roles, skills and responsibilities. These differences are not viewed as evidence of superiority or inferiority but of specialization.
In Islam, the family is of central importance. The man is responsible for the financial well-being of the family, while the woman contributes to the family’s physical, educational and emotional well-being.
This encourages cooperation rather than competition. By fulfilling their mutual responsibilities, strong families are created and hence strong societies. Shukria Kohistani
