Muslim women have had the rights women in United States “fought for in the 1970s” over “1,400 years ago.” In Islam, women “are considered equal to men in spirituality, education and worth.” Women in the Islamic religion are constantly portrayed as victims. Ridley proves that isn’t the result of the Koran and its texts, rather cultural issues that exist outside the religion of Islam. A man following the Koran would not view his wife as his property or as an inferior
Prior to the coming of Islam, women lived isolated from men and had always be in the shadow of a man. Men had always being the dominant over women in every aspect of life. Hence women had been oppressed and discriminated and put aside from the social life among the men. However, with the advent of Islam, prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h had raised the social status of women and made them as equal to men and complement each other to uphold the religion. In spite the uprising of women social status, there is still an emotional unrest from some muslim women who feel that there are still some issues that need to be addressed.

Alifa Rifaat and Rokeya Hossain are Muslim women who have challenged the cultural norms of traditional role of women in their culture. Their approach to the literary text are ones that are bold in the role of women in their stories. The importance of their writing allows us to access a subculture we probably wouldn’t have known existed until now. In my research I have found that the cultural norms of Muslim women are very important to them. In the western world they are seen as oppressed and have no freedoms, but in actuality there are many women that have made amazing advances to this cause.

The Quran provides clear-out evidence that a woman is completely equated with a man under the eyes of God in terms of her rights and responsibilities. Women are extremely important to Islam, but how they treat women in most countries is far different from the intentions of the religion of Islam. This paper will examine the status of women in the Islamic era and her rights. Introduction Islam is the religion of peace, which literally means "surrender" or "submission".
