The Honor of Women in Islam

ISCA, 2002 - 90 ˹
Relying explicitly on the source texts of Islam, including the Holy Quran and the sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Dr. da Costa details the true rights and roles of Muslim women. He then presents several leading female figures from Islamic history whose exemplary lives truly demonstrate the honor and power God has bestowed upon women. If we consider Islam in its traditional form, as practiced by the majority of Muslims throughout the world, and not the handful of fundamentalists to whom our attention is often drawn, we too may witness The Honor of Women in Islam.
