Muslim Woman: What Everyone Needs to Know

Juhi Gupta (Editor) A R Kidwai (Editor)

Muslim Woman: What Everyone Needs to Know examines various aspects of the lives of Muslim women particularly in education, career, personal law, economy, social relations, etc. It is a compilation of chapters, analysing various issues concerning Muslim women, while taking into account the Quranic perspective. It establishes how true Islam is both contemporary and liberal and bestows upon Muslim women the same status as men. The chapters seek to answer questions which are rooted in widespread misperceptions about Muslim women. It is an attempt to help the readers learn about the Islamic stance on women and how it has been misconstrued down the ages resulting in various misconceptions and misinformation about Islam itself.
