Women In Islam

How do women fit into islam? What is their fate?
This has been the subject of many a debate
for the believing men and women, is a great reward'
this is from surah al azaab, the words of our Lord
it can be seen from reading the holy Quran
that a woman has some privilege over a man
Praying is exempted during menstruation

Here islam gives women consideration
a woman after marriage becomes a wife
for nine long months she carries new life
during childbirth she is exempted to fast
islam is against the burying of girls in the past
They can pray at the mosque or even at home

They may marry or divorce , its their choice, their own
after marriage she can retain her old maiden name
and is rewarded for treating all her offspring the same
once they are married they should live pious lives
and the best men are those who are best to their wives
Islam shows equality my sisters and brothers

Don't forget paradise lies at the feet of your mothers
women in the UK had property rights from 1938
this right was given by islam, 14 centuries to date
in the UK, women could vote from 1918
this was stated 1400 years ago in islam our deen
Women can work and lead a happily married life

But shouldn't neglect her role as mother and wife
a woman for her child's upbringing, deserves her credit
islam also gives a woman the right to inherit
a woman's status in islam, we should never neglect
in islam they are favoured and deserve their respect

Nice to see some poetry other than that influenced by Christianity or Judaism. A refreshing change.

Would you be interested in donating a poem for inclusion in a poetry booklet to aid UK wildlife conservation projects?

Stonecat Nature Reserves is based in North Wales and it is my opinion that your poetry has a unique role to play and a donated poem from yourself would provide an important piece of input to such a novel booklet scheme.

If you are interested, please access the Poetry Writing page at
