Qur’anic perspective on gender.

  • All of humankind emanate from one source …

O mankind! reverence your Guardian-Lord, who created you from a single person, created, of like nature, his mate, and from them twain scattered (like seeds) countless men and women; ( Nisaa’4:1)


  • Integral interdependent components of society

The male believers and the female believers are protectors of each other           [ Q 3:195]


  • Male and female efforts have equal worth

Qur'an does not set value for particular deeds between men and women. "Never will I suffer to be lost the work of any of you, male or female. You are members, one of another." [ Q 3:195]
