Title: Status of women in the Arab Gulf Countries
Authors: Al-Yousef, Nourah
Keywords: Status
Arab world
Gulf countries
Issue Date: 27-Apr-2009
Abstract: The principle of gender equality is enshrined in The Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet which are the sources from which every Muslim woman derives her rights and duties. Islam established a woman’s equality in her humanity with men; neither gender can be superior because it would be a contradiction to equality. Islam also, recognizes and fosters the natural differences between men and women despite their equality. This is no way diminishes either’s efforts or benefits. God will reward both sexes equally for the value of their work, through, it may not necessarily be the same activity.
