Some people have brought up the problem of “the masculinism of Islamic Law”, claiming that they are doing so in order for women to be defended and shown justice, and to clarify the injustice they have suffered as a result of legislations that have been influenced by the authority of men and their masculinism.
It is a baseless claim and a false statement the purpose of which is to defame our legal scholars and create misgivings about Islamic Law. In these pages, I have written some brief sentences that should benefit anyone eagerly looking for the truth, and should silence every hypocrite, those who are not pleased for men and women to live under the shade of Islam, happy with its divine legislations and laws.
The book also includes appendices by Imams Yahya an-Nawawi (Women in the Masjid), Muhammad Tawfeeq Ramadan (The Dissolution of a Marriage Contract: A Way Out for Oppressed Women), Rushdi Saleem al-Qalam (A Woman's Right to End her Marriage), Imam Muhammad Sa'id Ramadan al-Buti (Women and Intellect) and Abdul Haleem Mahmood (Can Women Be Awliyāʾ of Allah?).
