Islam prohibited anyone to seize her wealth except with her agreement. Islam gave women the right to inheritance, education, seeking and acquiring knowledge is an obligation on all Muslims, male or female.
It is not allowed to force women in marriage because the validity of marriage is contingent on her consent.
