Muslim women dating rules
The Quran contains a verse which says: "And in no wise covet those things in which Allah has bestowed His gifts more freely on some of you than others: to men is allotted what they earn, and to women what they earn..." Commenting on this verse Sheikh Muhammad 'Abduh says that it does not imply that every man is better than every woman or vice versa, but it emphasizes that: "each sex, in general, has some preferential advantage over the other, though men have a degree over women." What is this "degree"? One view is that it means the qualities of leadership, surveillance and maintenance which are bestowed on men.
Another view is that it signifies the tolerance with which men must treat their wives even when in extremely bad moods.
The rule is meant not only to guard women, but is also meant to guard the spiritual good of men.
Looking at the sexual anarchy that prevails in many parts of the world, and which Islam came to check, the need for modesty both in men and women is abundantly clear.
In the family, the man is charged with the duty of being the leader of the family and the woman is assigned the duty of looking after the household.
Even if the man has more responsibility than the woman and thereby has a degree over her, it does not make a husband inherently better than his wife.

The wife may not legally object to the husband's right to take another wife or to exercise his right of divorce.
The marital contract establishes her implicit consent to these rights.
The most powerful verses commanding the believers to be modest occur in Surah al-Nur and begin with the words: "Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that will make for greater purity for them: and Allah is well aware of what they do." The rule of modesty is equally applicable to men and women.
A brazen stare by a man at a woman or another man is a breach of correct behavior.
