Comparing Chapter Four Of The Quran And The Bible

Satisfactory Essays

The Quran I believe that in the Quran as well as the Bible, men are put on a higher platform than women. They are given more privilege, opportunities, and a higher respect. In The Quran chapter four starts off by saying that Lord created man, then through man’s soul created a woman. In the Bible a very similar scenario takes place in Genesis chapter one. God creates Adam first, and then by taking one of his ribs, creates Eve. By creating man first in both religions, it shows that men are held superior to women. As you continue reading in chapter four of The Quran it starts talking about spousal inheritance if their husband or wife passes away. If a man’s wife was to die, and they had no children, he should inherit half of his wives’ estates.
