'Chosen & Honored Women'!
Honored are the women of today and of the past, according to the final Holy Scripture Al-Quran every woman created is an honored woman in the sight of Allah-Creator-GOD. Who has accorded woman a status of dignity and respect as a 'person', as her creation which in no way differs from man's.
Mentioned in the Quran specially chosen one of the most honored, blessed, Pious, virtuous, and pure young woman who submitted to Allah-Creator and dedicated her services to HIM only, is none other than Virgin Mary-Maryam (RA) beloved Mother of Messiah Jesus (AS).
She was honored by the Divine and chosen to carry a baby by an act of miracle of Allah who says 'BE' and HE creates. She was astonished when an Angel appeared to her saying: "Behold, O Mary GOD hath chosen and purified thee above the women of all nations: "--GOD giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from HIM: his name will be Christ Jesus the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of the company of those nearest to GOD":
"--And GOD will teach him the Book and Wisdom, the law and Gospel".
"She said: "O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man hath touched me? (Quran: 3: 42, 45, 47, 48),
This proves the authenticity of 'Virgin Birth', and in defense of his Mother miraculously Messiah Jesus (AS) spoke in the cradle as a Baby. (Q. 19: 30).
In fact the authenticity of the story and his advent confirmed and explained well by Universal Messenger Muhammad (SAWS) who planted the seed of respect for him and all the Prophets among pagans and Muslim converts. In fact Prophet Muhammad's advent was also foretold by Jesus (AS) (Ref.Bible).
In Islam under the Sharia Law women have a complete and comprehensive set of rights, which have never at any time or place been equaled or excelled. Such rights were established at a time when female children were rejected and buried alive and women were considered transferable property, Islam honored women in society by elevating them and protecting them with unprecedented right.
God has bestowed these rights on women of the world 14C. ago. They were not given as the result of the demands, pressures or threats of women themselves. Rather, given freely and unreservedly by the one who created them. mainly her recognition of a person an individual person. unlike the law of the land (1915-20) European women had to fight for the recognition of a woman as person, also the case of Suffragette 1903 national struggle and suffering of women fighting for their rights.
However, there is a divine guide line for her appearance, speech, ethics moral values, and overall behavior should be governed by divine guidelines.
A Muslim woman's similitude is of the special women mentioned in the Quran and the women of the Ahlaylbayt -family of Universal Messenger Muhammad (SAWS), who in his last sermon in the Uranah Valley of Mt. Arafat said:
"O people! ---Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers".
Women mentioned in the Quran Umme Moses (AS), H. Asiya Pharaoh's wife, H. Hawa/Eve (RA) wife of H. Adam (AS), Bilquish Queen of Sheba, H. Sarah (RA), H. Hagar (RA), and Mother of H. Mary (RA)..
