Description from the publisher:
Demands by women for equal rights and equal status with man and the freedom to decide their own careers and life partners have been a continual theme in the Western society for the last two hundred years. Western women had to demand, struggle and suffer for it. The struggle for rights was not that easy. Besides drafting charters of demands, they had to resort to strikes, agitations, processions, and demonstrations. No doubt the Western woman today has obtained some socio-economic and lego-political rights. But in the process she has lost her home, her family, her peace of mind, her honor and her womanhood - and has accepted additional responsibility of earning a livelihood by working in factories, farms, offices, and organizations side by side with man. On the contrary, the Muslim woman did not have to struggle for her rights. She did not form any organization and did not launch any movement. She did not even put up any demands for her rights. The great religion of Al-Islam bestowed innumerable rights on her as a bounty. And these rights were conferred on her fourteen hundred years ago. This book quotes the verses of Holy Qur'an, Hadith and Islamic Law and Fiqh to inform the reader the Rights of Muslim Women in the Islamic society and Shariah.
