The Quran, the holiest book in Islam, indicates that men and women are spiritual equals. The Quran 4:124 states: "If any do deeds of righteousness be they male or female and have faith, they will enter Heaven, and not the least injustice will be done to them." But this notion of equality has not been reflected in many of the laws in Muslim-based institutions. The Quran does not specify specific gender roles for women. However, in Islamic practice, gender roles manifest themselves, partially because men and women are sometimes allotted different rights and different cultural expectations.
