Muslim Women in Palanquins: Men are in Charge of Women

Muslim Women in Palanquins

Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property [supporting]. So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great. (Quran, 4:34)

If a man die childless and he have a sister, hers is half the heritage, and he would have inherited from her had she died childless. And if there be two sisters, then theirs are two-thirds of the heritage, and if they be brethren, men and women, unto the male is the equivalent of the share of two females. Allah expoundeth unto you, so that ye err not. Allah is Knower of all things. (Quran, 4:176)

Lo! it is those who disbelieve in the Hereafter who name the angels with the names of females. (Quran, 53:27)
