Yes, Islam Honours WomenFrom Ask Imam:
Question: I've been in a grave pain for the past 6 years.And my husband is the one causing this pain & problems. He insults me & my children (which are all grown up), doesn't respect us, doesn't let me see my family or talk to them,fight alot with us.Everything is miserable beause of him. I keep quiet and keep patients for which he takes advantage of. My sons pay for everything;the rent,food,insurance...He works but does not spend a single penny towards us or for the upbringing of the house(which is a father's duty). He insults me & my family alot & sometimes he don't speak to us for days or even months It's unbearable. I've done everything (used Allah's name to make him alright,have read some verses from Quran,but no luck). He don't listen to anyone & no one can dare talk to him.Please advice what I can do or read to make him alright again. You're my last hope!
Answer: 1. Perform 2 Rakaats of Salaatul Haajat and beg Allah to deliver you from
2. Whenever he comes home, recite 'Yaa Hayyu, Yaa Qayyoom, Yaa Ghaffooru,
Yaa Wadood' silently and blow upon him.
3. Continue with your good conduct towards him even if he is abusive towards

So the answer for the poor woman is to shut the fark up and behave. Oh, and pray some more.
Way to go, mufti. Such a shining light for abused muslim women in the world. At least non-pious muslimahs would hopefully accept the help that is available outside islam and its interminable micro-management of life.
As Sheikh Hosein says: .... the Qur’an recognized that
“women have rights similar to those exercised against them in an equitable manner”, but went on to declare that “men have a status or degree above them” (i.e., above women)
(Qur’an, al-Baqarah, 2:228)
and, in this connection, it further declared that “men are guardians over women” with responsibility to not only maintain but, also, to guard and protect them. The Qur’an concluded by making it obligatory for women to obey their male guardians. (Qur’an, al-Nisa, 4:34)
