A woman in Islam enjoys full rights as men also enjoy their rights. Islam provides freedom for women in transactions and inheritance. And cancel cultural practices that deprive women of their rights. And there are many things that Islam permits for women to make transactions without having to be supervised by their guardian or husband. Allah gives women the right to inherit, dowry, freedom of disposition of the property they own without requiring any authority from anyone. The majority of Legal Experts are of the opinion that a woman who is not a prodigal, has full capacity to dispose of property in the form of donations, gifts, trade, and after marriage has the right to receive her dowry, and has the right to dispose of it in the form of donations.
