It was Decided 14 Centuries Ago, Indian Cabinet Decides it Today

Assalamualikum
May the peace and blessings of Almighty God be upon you.

Indian cabinet led by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, passed a bill granting a share for wife in her husband's property.

A book that is usually marked as "obsolete", had proclaimed the same decision 14 centuries ago !

Glorious Quran declared The Right of a Wife in her husband's property by the following verse.

"In that which you leave, their (your wives) share is a fourth if you leave no child; but if you leave a child, they get an eighth of that which you leave after payment of legacies that you may have bequeathed or debts." Quran 4:12

Indian cabinet decision is one-sided. Quran's decision was two sided. That is, it declared a Husband's Right in Wife's Property !

"In that which your wives leave, your share is half if they have no child; but if they leave a child, you get a fourth of that which they leave after payment of legacies that they may have bequeathed or debts." Quran 4:12
