The status of being a daughter before Islam was very harsh. In Roman culture, daughters were married to old persons, and in Arab, they were buried alive. But then Islam came into being, granting them rights and creating some responsibilities for them.

  1. For the first time, Islam considered a woman equal to a man and described no discrimination against them.
  2. Islam gave them the right to education and worked equally as the man for their family.
  3. Islam gave a daughter the right to marry the person according to her wish.
  4. Islam gave her the right to her father’s property. Her share is half of her brother’s share.
  5. Islam gave her a right to Khula if she was not satisfied with her marriage and husband.
  6. Islam gave her the right to sue the person who sexually harassed or abused her.
  7. Islam gave her the right to live happily with or without a man. Man is not everything for her.
  8. Islam gave her the right to speak and express her views and ideas in front of the public.
  9. Islam gave her the right to be the world’s power and explained that without a woman, a man is nothing.
  10. Islam gave her the right to be a self-own person or, in another sense decide for herself in every matter.

And, now daughters have some responsibilities:

  1. Duty to cover herself properly to live safely in society. 
  2. Duty to keep their dignity of herself. 
  3. Duty to take care of her family. 
  4. Duty to be in Limits when it’s a matter of Na-Mahram. 
  5. Duty to be loyal to her husband and keep her Iman safe and strong. 

So, according to all these, Islam gave huge importance to women, especially daughters. May Allah protect all our daughters and sisters and bless them with all the world’s happiness.
