Affirming one’s faith The advent of Islam was a watershed moment in the development of Islamic customs and laws. There was no universally accepted moral standard prior to the advent of Islam. A culture of bad habits and blind obedience to authority has taken root among the populace. As a result, the repercussions made life very difficult for females. So, having a daughter was seen as a misfortune by the majority of the population. The little girls didn’t deserve to live. Either they were buried alive or their bodies were set on fire. The women of the tribes were looked down upon and abused. So, women were given more respect once Islam was adopted, and special rights were established for mothers, daughters, and spouses.
The place of Daughter in the Quran.
Allah SWT states in the Quran:
“To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth; He creates what He wills. He gives to whom He wills females [children], and He gives to whom He wills males. Or He makes them [both] males and females, and He renders whom He wills barren. Indeed, He is Knowing and Competent.”
So, according to scholars and the best Quran tutors, this verse means that Allah is the One who gives sons and daughters to whoever He wants based on His ultimate wisdom. He gives sons only to whoever He wants, and He gives daughter only to whoever He wants. If He wants, He can also make whoever He wants infertile, and he encourages families to celebrate the birth of a daughter when they feel burdened by having a son.
This is what Islam says a daughter has the right to:
- Allah SWT gives a daughter straight to her parents as a gift.
- Daughters are in charge of making sure the next generation is taken care of.
- Daughters are the reason why people are alive.
- Hell will be far away from anyone who has a daughter.
- Jannah is a must for the parents of a daughter.
- The father of a daughter is friends with Muhammad SA
- Raising a daughter well is a sure way to get to heaven.
- A daughter put her parents further away from hell.
- Their daughters is a shield for them.
- Daughters are a blessing in two ways.
- Daughters are wonderful gifts.
- The blessing is the same no matter how many daughters you have.
- Allah SWT will be kind to them if they are kind to their daughters.
- Islam gave a daughter the freedom to marry whomever she wanted.
- So, when a couple has a daughter, she brings them closer to Allah SWT and His Messenger (SAW)
- Islam gave her the right to sue the person who made her feel uncomfortable or hurt her in a sexual way.
- For those who are kind to their daughter, Allah SWT is also kind to them.
- So, Islam gave them the same rights as men to go to school and work for their families.
- Islam made it possible for her to inherit their father’s property. Half of what her brother gets is what she gets.
- If she is unhappy with her marriage and husband, Islam gave her the right to Khula.
- Islam gave her the right to be happy whether she had a man in her life or not. A man is not all she needs.
