Thank you for your question. Islam stresses the spiritual equality of each and every person, no matter their gender or social status, with the differentiating factor between all people being the quality og God-consciousness. At the same time, that does not mean that it also decrees that the genders have the same corporeal responsibilities. The station of prophethood has both a spiritual and a corporeal aspect to it and that is why women, especially in past societies, were not prophets. But that does not reflect on the spiritual status of women, especially since there are women that Islam holds in high regard for their spiritual excellece like Lady Fatimah, Lady Khadija, Lady Mary and Lady Asia and many other examples of women held in high regard in Islam.

May you always be successful.
