Indeed, women were created from a rib. Actually the most crooked part of the rib is the top.
If you want to straighten it, you’ll break it. And if you want to have fun with her,
you can have fun but in her there is bent.”
(Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)


This issue specifically addressed by the Prophet.
Because in the eyes of Allah women is equal to men in terms of faith.
Women were created from a bent rib, it does not mean that she is bent (ugly).
It’s just a matter of function, where men and women have their own functions.

Let’s look at the shape of a crooked rib, it serves as the framework that make body strength.
So she was also a part that can build and uphold life. Many of soft organs protected by the crooked rib.
As with women, she could take care her children and family’s life.
Crooked is not a form of weakness of women, therefore the Prophet said to counsel women on good terms.
It’s to keep the female psyche for not be broke, so she can execute her primary function
as a mother, wife, as well as her own.

Since the women’s task was given by Allah, therefore He has given the strength to them.
One clear example is the pain during giving birth, it’s an extraordinary power given
by God to women as the hereditary successor.
A good child born from the greatness of a mother who cares and raise them.
Behind the success of a husband, there is a great wife who accompanied and support him.
If women are treated well, then her soul awakened to compassion and patience.
Love and affection all the time in assisting children and their families without feeling hurt or disappointed.

  1. They are also made to be a sister and a friend! The two become one and their example spreads love and hope to others when they are one! Deep thoughts are shared here but that is in your heart by the grace of God. . But many men and women do not understand! You always have! There were many women in the Lord’s life, there was the prosititue about to be stoned, the woman by the well, the sisters of Lazarus and also His mother. But I have always understood from him that the most important commandment is to love the Lord God with all your heart and soul! And the second most important is to love your brother as yourself, i read it and understand it to be, to love humankind as your self…no difference between Man and woman, brother and sister. When he died on the cross all of the sisters above were there crying and mourning him pure love. They loved the spirit in Him and He just saw their hearts and spirits loving them in return. This is pure love without malice or any ill intentions. So i always share what i emulate from Him to love all without discriminating gender or anything else…we are all created in His image…humankind! And i will always share the love he brings into my life each day! You are a blessing because of your wisdom, your heart, and your loving spirit always to me…and i am glad to always call you my sister and friend. Have a blessed day!
