In Islam, there is absolutely no difference between men and women as far as their relationship to Allah is concerned, as both are promised the same reward for good conduct and the same punishment for evil conduct. The Quran says:

"And for women are rights over men similar to those of men over women." [Noble Quran 2:228]

The Quran, in addressing the believers, often uses the expression, 'believing men and women' to emphasize the equality of men and women in regard to their respective duties, rights, virtues and merits. It says:

"For Muslim men and women, for believing men and women, for devout men and women, for true men and women, for men and women who are patient and constant, for men and women who humble themselves, for men and women who give in charity, for men and women who fast, for men and women who guard their chastity, and for men and women who engage much in Allah's praise, for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward." [Noble Quran 33:35]

This clearly contradicts the assertion of the Christian Fathers that women do not possess souls and that they will exist as sexless beings in the next life. The Quran says that women have souls in exactly the same way as men and will enter Paradise if they do good:
"Enter into Paradise, you and your wives, with delight." [Noble Quran 43:70]
"Who so does that which is right, and believes, whether male or female, him or she will We quicken to a happy life." [Noble Quran 16:97]

In Islam everyone has certain rights including women, slaves and animals. But in legal system of Islam they do not have rights equal to men.

So although Islam’s reforms for women’s rights are commendable for a 7th century society, it is not good enough in modern societies.

Today, Islamic countries are the worst countries for a female to be born in by every measurable metric out there.

This is also reason why sub-Saharan Africa is far behind Eastern and Southern Africa as women’s empowerment is directly connected to poverty alleviation.

^Ignore the barking dog above.

There is a reason that women in West are coming to Islam.

In west, girls are so devalued that they're used like condom by every guy for a few nights then thrown like trash when she gets older and nobody wants to spend a life with her anymore.

Even this barking dog above^ proudly told how he can get inside any beautiful woman whenever he wants in many forum threads.

Do you think people like him^ will want women to have self-respect and stop acting like cheap whores?

Look at the British princess. They don't want her exposing her body and touching other men because she's royal and deserves respect. Isn't that what Muslims do to their women? Elevate her.

Think about it. A whore is naked, do you respect a whore? No, you ejaculate over her and move on. Even the Western world doesn't want whores and want women as wives who are less used.
