The concept of feminism is probably one of the biggest ongoing phenomena of the 21st century. Furthermore, we live in a society where the discussion around Muslim women, their rights, and the teachings of Islam in regards to women is often a hot topic of conversation. But, are the concerns regarding the rights and equality of Muslim women legitimate? And, what role does feminism in the teachings of Islam? 

In reality, the advocacy and establishment of women’s rights were granted well before modern society - more than 1400 years ago with the advent of Islam. Islam provides a proactive and logical explanation of the rights and role of women in society; it promotes the value of women and liberates them from comparing themselves to men based on the common societal understanding of equality.
