Creation from a crooked rib: Does Islam deride women?
A Snapshot It
goes without saying that women make up half of any society, and beget the other half, and so she is the whole society, indeed. While women underwent oppression, humiliation, and deracination in previous eras, the Prophet (PBUH) has defended, vindicated and ensured rights of women in a manner that exceeded their wild imaginations. Furthermore, the Prophet (PBUH) called for love, loyalty, m...

1. This narration gives us a sense of the consistency of the message. Each prophet essentially preached the same overall message (creed and social values) from Allah (swt); they differed only in legislation. All of the messengers emphasized the importance of justice.
2. ‘The only reason I sent you was to avert the calls of the oppressed from Me’
a. Allah makes this the only purpose of the one who He has entrusted with authority over others.
b. What often causes people to be unjust is obsession with this world. There is a connection between amassing the fortunes of this world and oppressing those who are disadvantaged. Allah mentions pursuing the fortunes of this world as a distraction from being just. Example: Capitalism is one of the greatest reasons for oppression today
