Honoring the women and considering their status and circumstances is manifested in many rules of the Islamic legislation, including:
• Islam stipulated that man pays a dowry for his wife, and gave the woman the right to inherit her husband just after the marriage contract.
• Islam forbade concluding the marriage without the consent of the guardian of the woman and the presence of the witnesses so as to ward off the accusation of committing unlawful sex.
• Islam imposed a penalty on the one who accuses a woman of committing unlawful sex without evidence, in order to deter any baseless accusation.
• Islam considers the one who is killed for the sake of defending his honor as a martyr; this virtue raised the status of women.
