Islam: The Empowering of Women
'Reading historical sources throughout the centuries of Islamic history, we find lots and lots of women active in all areas of life, and then suddenly it stops. What happened? How and why have things changed in the last three hundred years to the extent that it is unusual to find women involved in Islamic sciences and, unlike in the past, very few Muslim men would even consider being taught by a Muslim woman? This is a phenomenon which requires in-depth research.
It is time to re-examine the
sources and re-assess how Muslim women in the past acted so that we can
escape the limiting perspectives which have come to be the norm. To this
end, we will examine three perspectives: the Scholarly Woman, the
Political Woman, and the Spiritual Woman.'

"Islam teaches that marriage is ‘half of religion’ because it fulfils so many basic needs of individuals and of society, it is the cornerstone upon which the whole Muslim life is built.
"Modern life brings strains and pressures which can upset even the most compatible relationship. This means that nowadays, to protect the spirit of cooperation and happiness which is the sign of the true Islamic marriage, careful thought needs to be given to the mechanisms which help husband and wife to live together and respect each other’s rights.
"This highly-readable book takes the reader through the relevant passages in the Quran and Hadith, and goes on to discuss the main social and emotional problems that can afflict relationships, suggesting many practical ways in which these can be resolved."
