In the Qur'an, features of morality are the same for men and women

The superior morality of Muslim women differ than that of the common females in the societies where Qur’anic morality is not practiced. This is because women -who live in the societies where Qur’anic morality is not practiced- share a common character that is instructed to them by the society and that passes on from one generation to the other. In that kind of societies, there are different characteristic features determined for men and women.

However, in the Holy Qur’an, Allah does not announce two different characters as men and women; instead, He calls everyone to follow “a single Muslim character”. According to Qur’anic morality, men and women have the same responsibilities. In this character, women are responsible for all the characteristic features that men are obliged to perform. Each person doing good deeds will be granted with Allah’s blessing and His will; no matter what their sexuality is. In a Qur’anic verse, Allah announces the common Islamic morality both Muslim women and Muslim men are obliged to live:

 

Men and women who are Muslims, men and women who are believers, men and women who are obedient, men and women who are truthful, men and women who are steadfast, men and women who are humble, men and women who give charity, men and women who fast, men and women who guard their chastity, men and women who remember Allah much: Allah has prepared forgiveness for them and an immense reward. (Surat al-Ahzab, 35)
 

As Our Lord announces, according to Qur’anic morality, the character of women and men is not based on the society’s values or its traditions; yet it is based on “the ideal morals of Islam” announced in the Quran. Muslim women and men practicing this morality have a very strong and sedate personality. Besides, the most important of all, they live this personality not for the sake of gaining superiority upon people but for the sake of attaining Allah’s will and love. The reward for the believers who truly practice this sense of morality is announced in the Quran:
 

Anyone, male or female, who does right actions and is a believer, will enter the Garden. They will not be wronged by so much as the tiniest speck. (Surat An-Nisa, 124)
