Comment: Very straight forward and useful introduction to the topic of gender issues in Islam. Our book club discussed this book last month, and feedback was very positive. Next week, we'll be presenting on this topic at our local mosque, using the book and its references to seed the dicussion.

Comment: AsSalamu Alaikum:
The book is excellent and to the point. I have used the book to give a Friday Khutbah in my local mosque. This is the kind of information that somehow should be made avilable to non-Muslims; and we should live up to it by our actions.

|O Allah! |
You are my Rubb. There is no true god except You. You have created me, and I am Your slave, and I hold to Your Covenant as far as I can. I seek refuge in You from the evil of what I have done. I acknowledge the favours that You have bestowed upon me, and I confess my sins. Pardon me, for none but You has the power to pardon.
