“Surprisingly, Islam is now condemned for not giving women their rights, but in the past it was blamed for a totally opposite reason.”

... to be fair to the religion, Islam has granted women rights to inheritance, ownership, equal pay, engagement in public life and to initiating divorce since the seventh century. The Qur’ān declares: “Men shall have the benefit of what they earn and women shall have the benefit of what they earn” (4:32) and “From what is left by parents and by those nearest related there is a share for men and a share for women” (4:7). Furthermore, the very reason of women’s economic empowerment in Islam caused the Christian medieval world to wonder: “What kind of religion would allow women to inherit?”
