    Over fourteen hundred years ago, Islam gave women rights that women in the West have only recently began to enjoy. In the 's, Annie Besant observed, "It is only in the last twenty years that Christian England has recognised the right of woman to property, while Islam has allowed this right from all times. The Dress Code in the Quran for women. Introduction: Before presenting the Quranic rules for women's dress, it is essential to be reminded of the following: 1- The Quran is the only source of law authorised by God (). 2- The Quran is complete and fully detailed (, , and ).

      Gender inequality is a common accusation made against Islam and a disparity in educational opportunities between men and women in many Muslim countries is often cited as a primary example of this. Education is seen as one of the pivotal factors in determining the economic, social and political advancement of a society and if, those making up over fifty percent of that society, are denied .   The treatment and role of women are among the most discussed and controversial aspects of Islam. The rights of Muslim women have become part of the Western political agenda, often perpetuating a stereotype of universal oppression. Muslim women living in America continue to be marginalized and misunderstood since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Yet their contributions are changing the face of Islam.

    The complete following of the religion of Allah and verifying the Islamic identity is actually following Allah and his prophet (S.A.W.) only and nothing else. So Allah makes the law and the prophet (S.A.W.) told us these laws. Allah gave us Islam as a complete religion that needs no addition at all. Women in Islam and Muslim Realms: Books (Print & Electronic, incl. Dissertations) Research resources for the study of women in Islam; Islam and its ideology dealing with women, Muslim feminism, dress code, family and marriage, women and gender in Islam, : Ali Houissa.
