By Abd al-Hakim Abu Shuqqah - Translated by Adil Salahi
Part 1 of an 8 volume series, this author's abridged version of his longer work of the same title illustrates the status of the Muslim woman in Islam which differs from what is assumed in society today.
Prophet Muhammad (sws) established complete equality between men and women as he said, "Women are full sisters of men". Yet both have their respective special functions. This hadith establishes the basic principle of full equality between man and woman, with a measure of specialisation in certain areas.
This volume draws out the features of the Muslim woman's character as outlined in the Qur'an and Sunnah. It shows that much of what we imagine to be Islamic rulings are no more than social traditions.
Abd al-Haleem Abu Shuqqah (d.1995) was a great teacher and scholar. He had a real passion to revive the true Islamic spirit in the ummah and dedicated his life to learning and teaching. He taught in Egypt, Syria, Qatar and Kuwait. His particular focus was on Hadith studies.
