Quran, Noble Quran

Quran: [17:36] "You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them."

Quran: [49:12] "O ye who believe! Avoid suspicion as much (as possible): for suspicion in some cases is a sin: And spy not on each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, ye would abhor it...But fear Allah. For Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful."

Hadith on Muslim Women

The best way to learn Islam is to read from Quran and Hadith rather than listening to some one, who may not always be honest. In this regard, I present below some hadith on what prophet Muhammad (SAW) said about women and I will be adding more hadith in the future.

4. The Prophet said, "Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should not hurt (trouble) his neighbor.

I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.” The women asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He said, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They replied in the affirmative.
