Decree of His Eminence the Commander of the Faithful on Women's Rights

 

In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful

Under the direction of the leadership of the Islamic Emirate, all officials, distinguished scholars, and tribal leaders must take serious steps regarding the necessity of observing the following rights for women:

The consent of the adult woman is required in the marriage (when the husband is competent, and there is no fear of corruption or fitnah). No one has the right to compel a woman or force her to marry.

A woman is not property; she is a free and authentic human being, and no one has the right to marry her in exchange for resolving the conflict.

A woman whose husband has died is free to determine her fate after the expiry of her waiting period (four months and ten days or the delivery of a pregnancy), and neither the brother-in-law (the husband’s brother) nor anyone else has the right to marry her against her will, provided that competence is taken into account and that there is no sedition or corruption.

Taking the dowry from the second husband is a legal right for the woman.

A woman whose husband has died has a fixed right (Fard & Ta`sib) to the inheritance of her husband, children, parents, and the rest of her relatives, and no one can prevent her from taking her share in the inheritance.

Whoever has more than one woman under him, he is charged with justice between them and giving each of them their legal rights.

In order to implement the provisions stipulated in the best way, the following government agencies must take the necessary measures in their regard:

 

The Ministry of Hajj and Endowments is charged with guiding scholars and preachers to educate people about women’s rights, not to oppress them, and to give them their rights, in Friday sermons and through awareness programs and preaching councils.

Assigning the Ministry of Culture and Information to publish targeted awareness programs (through targhib & tarhib) about women’s rights, through its various media (written and audio). In order for scholars to be alert and public awareness and education about the legitimate rights of women, it would be easier to deal with matters and prevent injustice.

 

The High Court of the Supreme Court is instructed to direct all courts to register cases relating to women's rights, especially bereaved women, in a fundamental manner, so that they do not despair from obtaining their rights and repel injustice.

The governors of states and directorates shall cooperate with the aforementioned ministries and courts in implementing all the provisions of this decree.

Peace, mercy and blessings of God
