Pearl of Wisdom

about the verse: It is We who have dispensed among them their livelihood, 'Allah, the Exalted, told us that employment is one of the means of people's livelihood. He, in His wisdom, diversified their aspirations, motivations, and other states. Thus, He made man's employment of one another one of the means of people's livelihood ... If every one of us was forced to build for himself, make his own furniture, and produce everything himself... the world's conditions would not be bearable and people would not be able to endure them, and would find them impossible. But he ensured its management by diversifying their aspirations so that everyone performs for others that which is Employment compatible with his own capacity, in order for some of them to be served by others and for their conditions to be sound.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Wasa'il al-Shi'a, v. 13, p. 244, no. 3

The Purpose of Life: Wherever God talks about the human beings (Insaan) or whenever He talks about human soul (Nafs) in the Qur'an, Muslims theologians and scholars have never considered that humanness or the soul as 'male' or 'female'. (See 51:56, 91:1-10; 53:38-39)

The male or female division is only possible when we talk about the physical dimension of humans, not when we talk about the spiritual dimension. And so, from the Islamic perspective, the humanness of woman has never been denied or questioned; nor has there ever been any discussion whether she possesses a soul or not.

Since both are same in their humanness, both have been created for the same purpose: to serve God.

The Virtues in Human Beings: Whenever and wherever Islam has talked about virtues in human beings, it has not differentiated between men and women. Both have the potential to acquire knowledge. Both, men and women, are expected to exhibit the spirit of piety and other good attributes in Islam.
