About Islam and Women

The Prophet Muhammad said in his last sermon: "Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers." The Prophet Muhammad preached: "None but a noble man treats women in an honorable manner. And none but an ignoble treats women disgracefully". According to ulama Abdullah ibn Mas'ud, the Prophet is reported to have said: "If a daughter is born to a person and he brings her up, gives her a good education and trains her in the arts of life, I shall myself stand between him and hell-fire." Where does it say in the Quran that a woman must cover up her whole body with a burqa? Where does the Quran advocate the mutilation of women? Can some learned ulama point out the verse in the surah to me. I think it is some more intolerant teachings from the Salafis.
