ABSTRACT

This study entitled: An Appraisal of the Impact of Gender Equality on Womens Rights to Work in Islamic Law” has examined the Islamic perspective on gender equality and it is argued that Islamic law has elevated women and gives them a very dignified position, and the western call of women’s liberation is actually a misrepresentation of the true nature of women, and in fact it is a disguised form of exploitation of the women’s body, deprivation of their virtuousness and deterioration of their origin. The research work is predicated upon the problems arising out of severe criticisms levelled against the Shariah that it negates gender equality, more so as women are not allowed every freelance to mingle with men and partake in all sorts of undertakings to earn a living.

It is thereby recommended that in order to uphold the Islamic perspective of gender equality and bestow to women the permission to work, it is pertinent that employers of labour more particularly in places where Muslims are predominant, should endeavour to foster gender sensitive atmosphere in terms of providing gender segregated facilities like toilets, staff common rooms, female travelling buses, female nurses and doctors for women, etc. This would allow observance of the Islamic principles of purdah whereby seclusion and mingling of sexes are prohibited. Additionally, it is also recommended that a woman working outside home must respect her primary responsibility of rearing children and tending the home without having creating additional problem of requiring somebody to take care of them for her, because there is no more suitable person to discharge it than herself. Finally, it is suggested that Muslim women should desist from imitating the values and ideas propounded by western feminists to delude Islamic morality in the name of employment. This is because
