Other misconceptions concerning women
Another of the misconceptions concerning women concerns the Prophet Adam (pbuh) and his wife. The Qur’an says nothing about Adam’s wife deceiving him and causing him to sin. We see from reading verses 11 to 28 of Surat al-A‘raf that it was satan who deceived Adam and his wife.
In the same way, the Qur’an says nothing about woman being created from a man’s rib. The fabricated hadith that represents the origin of this claim has been described in earlier sections.
Another misconception is that the Qur’an is addressed to men alone. In fact, more than 90% of the Qur’an addresses believers with expressions such as “you who believe,” which refer to both men and women in general. In the same way that there are some verses addressed to men alone, there are others that address only women. Some other verses of the Qur’an are addressed directly and only to our Prophet (pbuh).
Nonsense such as the Prophet Adam (pbuh) being deceived by his wife or woman being created from a man's rib are slanders that are nowhere in the the Qur'an. Yet much of the Islamic world is ignorant of the Qur'an.
