Muslim communities, self-assurance, conviction, contemporary world


This research presents a comparative analysis of Islam and the contemporary Muslim world to identify the status of women.  Men and women are given equal rights as humans and individuals in Islam, regardless of their age, social status, or edification, but they are not equal in terms of constitutional rights and obligations worldwide. It proposes that in the early days of Islam, women have been given whole self-assurance, conviction, and excessive obligations in leadership, instructive guiding, and decision-making. However, this Islamic empowerment of females has little to do with the truth of women in cutting-edge Muslim communities. In Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and other conflict-torn regions, women are disproportionately affected by insecurity, spousal abuse, and other forms of violence, and a lack of educational and medical resources, as well as gender disparity and violation of women's rights branches out from a lack of good governance. It is impossible to improve the situation of women without competent administration. In the Muslim world, Muslim women have the capability to play a crucial role in restricting corruption, social evils, violence, and crime. As a result, which will gain balance and prosperity, control has to make sure that ladies have a platform to take part in decision-making and enjoy the human rights assured to them in Islam. The present research is qualitative in its approach where facts have been analyzed with Islamic lens to identify the female empowerment in comparison to the contemporary world.
