Women's Rights in the Quran

Access All Recordings

In this course, you will learn about how the Qur'an continues to honor and empower women even and especially in the modern world.

Ustadha Safiya Ravat helps break down false narratives, and shows us how the Qur'an elevates women back to their honored positions!

From the instructor:
"For centuries, widespread misconceptions have subjugated women and compromised their rights, asserting that good Muslim women should not be 'seen' nor 'heard'."

Curriculum:

Lesson 1: Honored by the Quran: Inclusive mentioning of women in the Quran

Lesson 2: Should she be "seen"? Women's Hijab, Dress and Beautification in the Quran

Lesson 3: Should she be "heard"? Understanding the rules and restrictions for women in Surah Al-Ahzaab (Sawt al Mara, Staying in the home, "from behind a curtain")

Lesson 4: How HE takes care of her: Allah addresses the emotional well being of women in divorce, marriage, the iddah

Homework:
