in response to reader comment: FROM THE KORAN ITSELF

hi Mr hisham, i'm egyptain muslim female , i read your comment on mohamed's opinion about khaibar battle althought it was no battle cause prophet mohamed didnt fight. he just ordered his fellows to stay outside the castles in which they hided for month to force them to surrender without a drop of blood.

i don't know where you brought your wrong information about safia and ayub ansari, but it didn't happen. these issiues have many people who write about things which didn't happen. prophet mohamed was not that king of guy you think ,who married many women or was treating females as lesser individuals. no he married khadiga by age of 25 and before that he was known to be a straight decent young man even by non beleivers themselves, and when he married khadega she was older than him she in the forties,he lived with her 15 years,then she died and he didn't marry for other 10 years. after he became 50 years he married sawda (who is old lady who didn't have any supporting member in mekka so he married her for that reason )and stayed two years with her before he married all his other wifes he was 52 ,and most of them were for reasons.

islam praises females. prophet mohamed used to ask om salma, his wife, for advice in hudybeya,and asked two of ansar females to attend and witness the (bayaet el akaba).

What Is the Status of Women in Islam?
Islam sees a woman, whether single or married, as an individual in her own right, with the right to own and dispose of her property and earnings without any guardianship over her (whether that be her father, husband, or anyone else). She has the right to buy and sell, give gifts and charity, and may spend her money as she pleases. A marriage dowry is given by the groom to the bride for her own personal use, and she keeps her own family name rather than taking her husband's.

Islam encourages the husband to treat his wife well, as the Prophet Muhammad said: {The best among you are those who are best to their wives.}1

Mothers in Islam are highly honored. Islam recommends treating them in the best way. A man came to the Prophet Muhammad and said, "O Messenger of God! Who among the people is the most worthy of my good companionship?" The Prophet said: {Your mother.} The man said, "Then who?" The Prophet said: {Then your mother.} The man further asked, "Then who?" The Prophet said: {Then your mother.} The man asked again, "Then who?" The Prophet said: {Then your father.}2
