Does Allah favor men over women, or does he love us all equally? I have read this: https://www.uua.org/re/tapestry/youth/bridges/workshop14/185708.shtml but I'm not sure as to if it is true?

  • Woman actually are more protected than man according to Islam. You have nice lecture here that explains that and more.

  • Strictly speaking no, each one has his duties and favors Islam takes into account that both genders are different in many things be it abilities or strength or whatever. A man who is not in charge of his family for example has no right of obedience according to many scholars.

You shouldn't be reading propaganda against Islam or what non-Muslims think of Islam without having good base knowledge in the religion.

Allah says in the Quran:

O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted. (49:13)

Different rules apply to men and women in some cases because they are different. However, Allah loves people and honors people based on their piety, not their gender.
