Women and Marriage
Women in Islam hold a great status and position as mothers, wives, daughters and sisters. They are the honour of the believers, to be guarded and protected from any exploitation or oppression. As such, Islam puts the protection of women as a high priority and lays downs important rules for the relationships between men and women, forbidding unlawful intimacy and governing the social affairs of mankind through the great system of marriage. Islam has given the best advice from the revelation about married life, maintaining and achieving successful marriages and protection from all evil and harm.
