In today’s world almost all societies are aware of the importance of female education. Islam is a complete code of life, where the concept of female education is clear and important. There is no restriction and confinement on female education.The teachings without any discrimination are alike for both genders. Therefore, being a Muslim, it is our responsibility to encourage female education and enhance their role as nation builders. Surprisingly, Islamic teachings regarding women education are either misrepresented or confused. There is lack of clear stance about this important matter. In  our glorious many female scholars and women held important positions after gaining higher education but this aspect is mainly ignored. This article will explore this issue in the light of Qurᾱn and Ḥadῑth which shall bring clarity towards this issue and the misconception shall be resolved.
