Rights of Women under Islamic Sharia of law
Islam is the first religion that recognized the rights of women when it came to inheritance, education, marriage and other important socio-economic matters.
Before Islam, women were considered to be inferior to men and in ancient Arabia; it was common practice to bury new born girls alive.
Sharia law is for peace, sharia of Islam is peace in Islam, So everything in is benefit for both of men and women. However, Islam not only prohibited such customs but also declared daughters to be blessings and source of salvation.
There are many instances where Holy Prophet (PBUH) has emphasized on showing kindness towards daughters and rewards associated with it.
