Are there equal rights according to the Koran?
Unfortunately, due to ignorance, there are still many false prejudices regarding equal rights in Islam today.
The Koran itself clearly states that both sexes are equally entitled. Sometimes it is not ignorance but tradition that is wrongly continued.
The Koran only distinguishes between men and women based on their constitution. It is written that the wife takes care of the household and the children and the husband takes care of the well-being of the family. So the man has to take care of money and food etc. It is by no means stated that the husband can do everything and the wife has no rights. Even divorce is clearly allowed.
Nevertheless, it can seem that women often do not have equal rights. In many places, women are still locked up at home after puberty, which is definitely not in the Koran.
The Koran says:
“The dignity of women should be valued just as highly become like the dignity of men”.
What is still happening to girls and women in many countries today therefore has nothing to do with the Koran. It is old traditions that oppress these girls and women.
Now how many pages does the Koran have?
Unfortunately, this answer depends on many factors.
The font, the font size, the paper size. There are different versions of the Koran. Some have around 600 pages and are in Arabic handwriting. Others have 1,500 pages. Therefore, this answer cannot be given clearly.
