Islam: The Empowering of Women

Availability: Ready to download

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 cons 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.

    This book is certainly informative. unfortunately parts of it actually bored me as it felt like I was just reading a list of names with a couple of sentences adjoined. However the later part of the book I did find rather interesting. She talks about the spiritual side of a muslim. She basically says that today there seems to be to much rigidity in rules and the heart gets forgotten. I personally find this so true and that there is no point doing all the actions if your heart does not believe.

I personally find this so true and that there is no point doing all the actions if your heart does not believe. In fact even though I wear the hijab my inner self is much more important than the outer. I must admit though the more I read the more I felt like I was just reading a book about Sufism rather than women in Islam? It's a nice quick read and handy to have if you know any Muslim men who takes away the rights of women. then again, men like that would not listen/read this book anyway. Shame

    This book explores the different roles of women within Islam, namely, as scholars, political leaders and Sufis. This book is definitely concise therefore it doesn't satisfy any real curiosity and at times it felt as if though I was reading a list of names with a couple of sentences adjoined. However, certain parts of the book was definitely informative and Aisha has done well in describing how women played an active role in the early days of Islam alongside men and how they continued to do so ce This book explores the different roles of women within Islam, namely, as scholars, political leaders and Sufis.

    Splendid book. I expected apologetics but it's divided into three sections exploring Muslim women as scholars, political leaders, and as Sufis. It's a short but excellent book! Splendid book.
