Description from the publisher:
This is the "women's lib" age as the West preferm to term it. But is it true? Is it not a lip-service age turning women practically to "dolls" or something like "real-life dolls"?
Women entering the fold of Islam played an enviable prominent role, side by side their counterparts, in shaping and developing the Muslim society as a model from the onset, emancipating humanity, men and women, from the shackles of deep-rooted ignorance. Women in Islam have a very special place, status, and dignity that is unknown to mankind before or after.
The life sketches of the early female believers, in this book, stand as beacon and outstanding models for the so-called "weaker sex" and call for the revival of the pristine, lofty, high position of women in the society once again.
The women in this book are listed in categories, such as "Mothers of the Prophet", "Wives of the Prophet", "The Prophet's Daughters", and many more categories.
Some women included in this book are: Aminah Bint Wahb Haleema as-Sa'diyah Barakah Fatiman bint Asad Khadeedjah bint Khuwaylid Sawdah 'Aishah Maymoonah Hafsah Zaynab bint Khuzaymah Safiyyah bint Huyy ibn Akhtab Umm Habeebah Umm Salamah Mariyah Juwayriyah bint al-Harith Umm Hani and Nab'ah Asma' bint Abu Bakr Safiyah bint 'Abdul-Muttalib Umm al-Fadl Asmaa' bint Umays Umm Ma'bad Umm 'Ammarah Naseebah bint Ka'b Rufaydah al-Aslamiyah Umm Waraqah Umm Kulthoom Umm Sulaym Umm Haram bint Milhan Fatimah bint al-Khattab Umm Manee' Al-Khasna' Shaymaa' Ruqayyah
