The word insan includes both men and women. Like men, the women are also asked to fulfil the rights pertaining parents such serving them financially, physically, obeying them and avoiding to hurt them. Some daughters are negligent of these things and they keep themselves away and put the burden of this responsibility upon their sister in laws (brother?s wives).
