Assalamu alaikum. Is muslim sisterhood equally important as muslim brotherhood, according to Islamic teachings? I see much less discussion about this issue.
Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
Everything regarding brotherhood is also applicable and relevant to sisterhood. There is nothing in the sources to prove otherwise. So, even as we owe duties towards our brothers, we also owe duties towards our sisters. However, Allah, who knows human nature best, has placed specific regulations; those are meant only to save ourselves from the evil inherent in our nature.
Allah’s laws are based on His infinite mercy for His servants to allow them to realize the ultimate felicity in store for them.
Allah Almighty knows best.
