    Religious schools and communities have expressed different opinions about the real perfection of women. Obviously, identifying the women's ultimate perfection has essential role to determine fate of them and human society. Among the schools, comprehensive Islamic law which is originated of revelation, have considered enormous status for women by paying great attention to women traits. Based on Quran attitude, women are at the same position as men in terms of humanity. Certainly, there are a lot of wise genesis differences between men and women, but the main addressed in divine revelations is human truth and gender has no role in awarding the guidance. In Quran third longer Sura , is called "Al- Nnesa" that means women and also In other ten Suras there have been pointed out about some women's affairs . Virtues of exemplar women are introduced by Quran as follows: the wife of Pharaoh, faith exemplar; mother of Moses (AS), exemplar of surrender to God, the wife of Moses (AS ), modesty exemplar; mother of Mary (SA), exemplar of honesty and sincerity, Mary (SA) exemplar of chastity and modesty ; wife of Zechariah (AS) exemplar of righteous and obedience (SA) the wife of Job, a patient exemplar and the Queen of Saba, exemplar of surrender to God orders. In some Ahadith of the Prophet (SAW), master of women in the paradise (and in other Ahadith, world) are four: Mary (mother of Jesus), Asia (wife of Pharaoh), Khadija and Fatima. And the most perfect one is Fatima. These Contents in the teaching of Islam itself indicate possibility of growth and excellence in female personalities to the top of humanity virtues. Spiritual virtues of women in Quran are: 1- individual virtues (piety and moral virtues) 2- social virtues. Women are able to achieve to best degree of sincerity, faith and piety the same as men. They are equal in being Muslim, faithful, obedience ability, truthfulness, tolerance, fear of God and give alms, fasting, self-preservation, remembering God and finally in extract of all virtues which is piety, (Al- AHzab 35). Moreover, Quran puts men and women together in undertaking social responsibilities. In ignorant and superstitious communities in which women would only be considered as objects, Quran takes over a heavy responsibility such as friendship and supervision, invitation to goodness and denial of badness, standing prayer and giving alms. The Prophet has got votes from women. This study is a library one and in deductive method. The main resource is the holy Quran. Thus, men and women are equal in enjoyment of business and undertaking their duties and responsibilities and rewards. Physiological differences between men and women are essential to the survival of human life that builds differences in some duties and rights. The purpose of this study is to describe the types of virtues in the Quran for women, which reach us to this result that obtaining human virtues for men and women as a ratio, it is important Because the Quran from the perspective of both are equal in humanity and virtue are superior to them.
