The position of the mother is very much exalted in Islamic tradition. The Holy prophet (S.A.W) has gone so far as to say, "Paradise lies underneath the feet of your mother". With regards to women as a daughter, the Islamic attitude can be realized from the reproaches which the Holy Quran makes against the pagan pre-Islamic behavior at the birth of daughters. Islam abolished all types of such disgraces. Islam has drawn a clear line of demarcation between the duties of men and women in the business of their daily life.
According to the teachings of Islam men and women enjoy equal rights in our society but their social responsibilities and duties are different. Woman is the queen of her house. Her main and sacred duties are to look after the domestic affairs, to bring up children with care, to educate the children and to act according to the wishes of her husband. However, Islam does not prevent women from serving in various social institutions. But Islam recommends the duties of women mostly at home. Islam has laid greater stress on the domestic duties of woman.
