Discrimination against women's rights in the economic sector based on Islamic teachings is still common in Indonesia. This article aims to reveal the economic empowerment of women by the Prophet Muhammad. During his life, he took sides with women by giving them their rights, including those in the economy. Also, it aims to portray the implementation of the Prophetic teachings related to women's economic rights in the Indonesian context by using descriptive-analytical research methods. The collected data is then analyzed using gender and Islamic approaches. The results showed that the Prophet had upheld and implemented women's economic rights through his Hadiths. However, there are still many Muslim communities in Indonesia that do not understand it well. The misunderstanding of the teachings of Hadith and the patriarchal culture that is still developing in Indonesia has resulted in the not optimal implementation of the Prophet's teachings regarding women's economic empowerment.
