Motivation of Women as Entrepreneurs: An Islamic Perspective
This paper deals with the Motivation of Women as Entrepreneurs as well as Islamic law on women entrepreneurship which are explained in the Holy Quran and said by Prophet (PBUH). Islam is a complete way of life, every act of its followers both male and female considered as Ibadah (worship) if he/she done with an intention of pleasing Allah (SWT). The Holy Quran and Sunnah motivates both men and women to work hard and to earn lawful money and offers to distribute excess profit for the welfare of the society through zakat, alms, charity, and gifts rather than rely on begging. Similarly, Islam is not against on women working and they treated them as equal to men. Many Sahabiya (women companions) of Prophet (PBUH) and his own wife Hazrat Khadijah tul Kubra were involved in business activities. Therefore, the present study concluded the Islamic life style to motivate women as entrepreneurs.
