Religious Obligations of Muslim Women

With respect to the obligations we owe to Allah, we must have a comprehensive consciousness regarding the rights of Allah or Lord that we have to fulfill, the rights of our ‘self’ upon us and the rights regarding our fellow human beings. We have to learn to distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate, legal and illegal as ordained by Allah. If we blindly follow our innate and instinctive needs, we are bound to cross our limits into the premises of forbidden (Haram). Similarly we have to perform our duty towards people, and mankind in general, according to the tenets set by Allah. If this principle is duly followed, our vision will remain clear and our target defined. If, on the other hand, we follow our own whims and wishes, we may, God forbid, become the victims of the Qur’anic prophecy.
