Right from the beginning women are entitled to a number of rights in Islam which make them not only equal to men but at certain stages superior to men. Despite this, Muslim women in their practical life are deprived of these rights as reflected in their entitlement to property and inheritance, right to education, divorce, employment, maintenance etc.. The unequal treatment received by women in Muslim societies is widely debated and attributed to certain principles and norms in Islam which however is not true. The paper attempts to examine the nature of rights given to women in Islam i.e., textual sources and Ahadith. The paper also intends to highlight the practicability of these rights in day to day life of Muslim women and the gap in theory and practice. The paper is based on secondary sources such Quran, Ahadith and other relevant literature wherever necessary. The statements will also be supplanted by participant observation of the authors.
