Islam sees a woman, whether single or married, as an individual in her own right, with the right to own and dispose of her property and earnings without any guardianship over her (whether that be her father, husband, or anyone else).  She has the right to buy and sell, give gifts and charity, and may spend her money as she pleases.  A marriage dowry is given by the groom to the bride for her own personal use, and she keeps her own family name rather than taking her husband’s.

Islam encourages the husband to treat his wife well

as the ProphetMuhammad  said

The best among you are those who are best to their wives

Narrated in Ibn Majah, #1978, and Al-Tirmizi, #3895

Mothers in Islam are highly honored.  Islam recommends treating them in the best way.  

A man came to the Prophet Muhammad  and said

O Messenger of God!  Who among the people is the most worthy of my good companionship?”  The Prophet  said: {Your mother.}  The man said, “Then who?”  The Prophet  said: {Then your mother.}  The man further asked, “Then who?”  The Prophet  said: {Then your mother.}  The man asked again, “Then who?”  The Prophet  said: Then your father

Narrated in Saheeh Muslim, #2548, and Saheeh Al-Bukhari, #5971
