The status of women

" “He (Muhammad) placed the woman on the same footing with man in legal processes and financial independence. She might follow any legitimate profession, keep her earnings, inherit property and dispose of her belongings at will. He abolished the Arab custom of transmitting women as property from father to son. Women were to inherit half as much as male heirs and were not to be disposed of against their will.” "
