    Are Men and Women Equal in Islam?

    Marriage: No
    wife has to obey husband
    husband has to pay maintenance

    Parents: No
    Mother has priority over father

    Inheritance from parents: No
    Son gets double that of the daughter

    Inheritance from other relations: Yes
    Parents who inherit from a deceased child, for example, each inherit one-sixth of the property if the deceased child is survived by a child of his or her own. In that instance, the division is equal between the mother and the father of the deceased.

    Liyan(?): Yes equal
    Witness of spouses against eachother, accusation of adultery, is equal.

    Witness to certain crimes and contracts: No
    1 male witness or 2 female, 4 male witnesses, etc.

    Military service: No
    Women are excused

    but where it matters?

    Reward for good deeds: Yes
    If any do deeds of righteousness, be they male or female,
    and have faith, they will enter Paradise
    and not the least injustice will be done to them.
    [Quran 4:124]

    Allah (SWT) won't ask you if you had a career or not, if you were a co-wife or an only wife, if you "wore the trousers" in the marriage or not. You'll be asked about your good deeds.

    I'm not sure family life and a person's word is not "where it matters."

    am sure that you'd agree though that compared to pleasing G-d, other things other than that are pretty insignificant?

    The path is long but I hope we meet,
    After the grave and the Day, in paradise in bliss upon a reclined seat.

    A traveler traveling - travelled from shirk to tawheed,
    If I'm remembered for anything - let it be the Mercy I seek.

    Your Bro. Abu Hurayra, al-Habeshi

    Of course--I can see how that would be important from your perspective.

    I'm struck though everytime I look at the Prophet's life (and Jesus too) how progressive and inclusive he was of women given his culture. I just wished Islam carried that perspective forward.
