# Fariq Naik – Men and Women are Overall Equal

The speaker discusses the equal status of men and women in Islam, stating that they are both equal. They explain that the definition of equal status is based on the number of marks on a question paper, rather than the overall score of the students. The speaker uses the example of student A and student B achieving different scores based on their marks, but concludes that they are both equal.
00:00:00 --> 00:00:02

And in Islam, men and women are overall

00:00:02 --> 00:00:03

equal.

00:00:03 --> 00:00:04

Equality

00:00:04 --> 00:00:05

does not mean identicality.

00:00:06 --> 00:00:08

Men and women, they're equal, but they're not

00:00:08 --> 00:00:11

identical. For example, if in a school, student

00:00:11 --> 00:00:13

A and student B, they get the highest

00:00:13 --> 00:00:15

marks. The question paper, it is out of

00:00:15 --> 00:00:17

100 marks. And both student A and student

00:00:17 --> 00:00:19

B get 80 out of 100. If you

00:00:19 --> 00:00:20

analyze,

00:00:20 --> 00:00:23

in question number 1, student a, he gets

00:00:24 --> 00:00:26

9 out of 10 and student b gets

00:00:26 --> 00:00:28

7 out of 10. And question number 2,

00:00:28 --> 00:00:30

student b gets 9 out of 10. And

00:00:30 --> 00:00:33

student a gets 7 out of 10. And

00:00:33 --> 00:00:35

the remaining 8 questions both get 8 out

00:00:35 --> 00:00:36

of 10. And if you analyze both of

00:00:36 --> 00:00:39

them, you get 80 out of 100. But

00:00:39 --> 00:00:41

in question number 1, student A has a

00:00:41 --> 00:00:42

00:00:42 --> 00:00:45

And in question number 2, student b has

00:00:45 --> 00:00:46
