Abstract

This article delves into the teachings of the Qur’Én and Prophetic Traditions to examine the Islamic framework surrounding the requirement of women's empowerment via education. It explores the changing position of women in Islamic civilizations via historical views and highlights the Prophet Muhammad's support of women's rights and education. Key verses in the Qur’Én discuss the emphasis on knowledge and emphasize the divine value of education for both genders. The paper explores how seeking knowledge is a means of achieving spiritual elevation as well as an obligation for all Muslims, regardless of gender. Prophetic traditions, like as the well-known "Seek Knowledge Even unto China," highlight how inclusive knowledge-seeking is and encourage the eradication of geographical and cultural barriers. The article's conclusion makes the claim that educating women to empower them is in line with Islamic beliefs and promotes a society that is more just, equal, and enlightened. This study will use the qualitative research approach in order to conduct a thorough investigation of the Qur’Énic and Prophetic teachings addressing the empowerment of women via education.
