The Tasnim exegesis of the Qur‘an has recognized rights such as the right to development, theological rights, the right to motherhood and wifehood, economic rights, political rights, social rights, family rights and spiritual rights, etc. as women‘s indisputable rights.
From the view point of creation, there are without doubt subtle differences between men and women. Islam has given an exalted and lofty dignity to women with a definite attitude that considers all of her rights and characteristics. However, there is a balance suiting her dignified and innate nature between both her rights and her obligations in Islam. In recent decades, the issue of women as a global issue has been considered by international declarations such as the ―Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women‖ and the ―2030 Education Framework‖, whose main nature is to create a kind of complete similarity between man and woman based on gender; which in this case sets requirements for nations and governments. This research has employed descriptive and text analysis methods as well as library and field research methods to do a comparative study on international documents and the articles of these treaties. To do this, it will use verses of the Qur‘an that talk about women‘s rights and refer to the Tasnim exegesis of the Qur‘an written by Ayatollah Javadi Amooli. The Tasnim exegesis of the Qur‘an has recognized rights such as the right to development, theological rights, the right to motherhood and wifehood, economic rights, political rights, social rights, family rights and spiritual rights, etc. as women‘s indisputable rights. However these international agreements only emphasize one aspect of women, which is the sexual and physical, and so these laws are in stark contrast to women‘s natural needs. This attitude will cause their motherly value as well as the spouse‘s rights to die out, and at the same time, it is a double cruelty to women and even men. The idea of equality of men and women as recognized in international agreements will pave the way for families and societies to disintegrate in either the near or the distant future.
