Women’s rights fully protected in Afghanistan

The liberation of Women was revealed by Almighty Allah to the Prophet
Mohammad SAW more than 1400 years ago and Islam came to protect the
rights of Women and raise their honor and status in society

Since its re-establishment in mid-August 2021, the Islamic Emirate has focused on the protection of women’s rights in the country based on the principles of Islamic law. The Islamic Emirate leadership has repeatedly said that Afghan women have been given all rights based on the rules of the Sharia. In most recent remarks, the deputy foreign minister of the Islamic Emirate has once again said that women’s rights have been protected in Afghanistan. Speaking at a graduation ceremony of a girls’ madrasa in Kabul the other day, the deputy foreign minister, Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai said that women’s rights have been protected in Afghanistan. Pointing to women’s education, Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai said that countries could not progress without modern education and asked for girls’ schools and universities to reopen. “I reiterate that education doors should not be kept closed and no difference should be made in education. We need men and women in all parts,” added Stanikzai. This comes as the doors of schools and universities are closed to girls, but the Islamic Emirate is working to pave the ground for women’s education based on the Islamic Sharia. There are hopes that the doors of schools and universities are open to girls across the country. Islam already recognized that women had the capacity for learning and understanding and Prophet Mohammad SAW highly encouraged Women to seek knowledge, primarily of the Quran and Sunnah, but also a woman is allowed to take advantage of her natural talents and skill set to seek knowledge in other spheres of life whereby she will contribute positively to society. Throughout Islamic history, many women held honorable positions as scholars, teachers, physicians, and scientists. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Education is compulsory for every Muslim.” Prior to Islam, the oppression and exploitation of women were rampant. Women were treated like commodities, female children were buried alive, the right of divorce was in the hands of the man and women were not allowed to own assets or contribute to society. The liberation of Women was revealed by Almighty Allah to the Prophet Mohammad SAW more than 1400 years ago and Islam came to protect the rights of Women and raise their honor and status in society. Most importantly, the Prophet Mohammad SAW in his final sermon before he passed away made a direct address to the men telling them to be kind to their womenfolk. It is therefore an obligation upon the man to treat his womenfolk with utmost kindness. We pray that God blesses and protects Women all around the world! Mashal noori
