Islam is not a religion but a Din. There is a lot of difference between religion and Din. Religion is a part, while Din is a whole.During the caliphate of Hazrat Umer (ra), the women used to be members of parliament. It has been mentioned in many books of Hadith.
Allah Almighty says: “…consort with them in kindness, for if you hate them it may happen that you hate a thing wherein Allah has placed much good.” (An-Nisa’: 19)
Allah Almighty says, “And they (women) have rights similar to those (of men) over them in kindness, and men are a degree above them. Allah is Mighty, Wise.” (Al-Baqaraqh: 228
"And Allah has made for you Mates (and Companions) of your own nature ..." (Surah Al Nahl 16:72)
The Holy Prophet (saw) himself included women in the important national affairs during the Caliphate period including defence duties.
Prophet Salallaahu 'aliahi wa'sallaam used to extend his knee to his wife to assist her up to ride the camel.
The Prophet(puh) said:
if i were to order a human to kneel for a human , i would order the wife to kneel for her husband.
Allah doesnot get satisfied with the woman except when her husband does.
if a husband asks his wife for her bed & she refused, angels would curse her till her morning.
women are men brothers & only the generous honours them but the mean who insults them , fear Allah in women,treat women(qwarir) gently, best men are those who treat their wives well .
Feed & clothe your wife from your food & cloth.
The Prophet(PUH) used to pamper his wives calling them by the names they loved & refused backbiting at all among them & among all humans
