Description from the publisher
Islam was revealed at a time when a lot of people denied the humanity of the woman; some were sceptical about it; and still others admitted it, yet considered the woman a thing created for the humble service of the man.
The Status of Woman in Islam shows how since the advent of Islam, the woman’s dignity and humanity are restored. Islam confirms her capacity to carry out Allah’s Commands, her responsibilities and observation of the commands that lead to heaven. Islam considers woman as a worthy human being, with a share in humanity equal to that of man. Both are two branches of a single tree and two children from the same father, Adam, and mother, Eve.
