The paper aims to break the myth of Muslim women being oppressed, passive, and neglected part of society, imprisoned in four walls and more focus is on association between religion and women’s position. Paper offers a brief overview of the Islamic concept of modesty as enshrined in the Quran and the socio-cultural contexts in which the concept was introduced. The paper makes brief deliberation on the on the status of women from Islamic perspective. The attempt has been made to cover not only the spiritual but also social, economic as well as the political aspects. The paper aims to build a cohesive, global moment of Muslim women that will reclaim women’s rights. It offers a cumulative picture of Muslim women. The paper is not ready to recognise that women’s rights are fundamentally human rights cutting across cultures, regions and religions. Crusaders of women empowerment are increasing day by day, many words have been penned down about women empowerment so far but giving it a right sense has not found a big literature yet. This paper is just a little step towards the enlightenment of status of women from Islamic perspective.
