Rights and Duties of Women

The subject of rights and duties of women in Islam has often been clouded by controversy, personal opinions and sheer ignorance. Although many scholars have dealt with this subject, there has remained a need to discuss wider aspects of the issue. The purpose of this booklet is to remove some of the misunderstandings, prejudiced opinions and false hoods which circulate about the Rights and Duties of Women in Islam. Buy this Book

Rulings Pertaining to Muslim Women

This books goes over many important laws relating to women dealing with aspects of everyday life to special events. "The woman has been given a particular status in Islaam. Great importance is attached to her position, and the Prophet, may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him used to give special guidance to women, and left his guidance for them in his speech at 'Arafaat."

Introduction

All praise be to Allaah who decreed and guided, and created the pairs, male and female, from a single drop. I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allaah, alone without partners in worship. All praise be to Him firstly and lastly. I bear witness that Muhammad is his servant and messenger; he was raised to the heavens and shown the great Signs of his Lord. May the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him, his family and companions, the virtuous, and the people of intellect.

The woman has been given a particular status in Islaam. Great importance is attached to her position, and the Prophet, may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him used to give special guidance to women, and left his guidance for them in his speech at 'Arafaat. These points prove that it is compulsory to pay special attention to women at all times, and in particular today, when the Muslim woman has been singled out for attack, in order to deprive her of her nobility and status. It is therefore incumbent to warn women of these dangers and explain to them the path of success.
I hope this book will be a pointer to this path, as it contains some of the Islaamic laws specific to woman. The book is a small contribution; a small effort and I hope that Allaah makes it beneficial despite its smallness. The book is the first step on this path after which, it is hoped, greater and more expansive steps are taken to achieve what is better. Buy this Book

Seeds of Righteousness

Tools for Muslim Women to Spread Islam

In this book, we collected nearly two hundred Seeds of Righteousness, green and fruitful, for Muslim women to sow and reap. These seeds were sown by Muslim sisters who took care of them until they grew to produce various fruits and benefits. These are also good examples of da'wah to Allah that should be practiced by Muslim women, who strive hard to acquire safety on their path to the Hereafter. This is a call to the Muslim sister who has not planted a Seed of Righteousness yet. Use the Seeds of Righteousness offered to you in this book, might and that Allah accept your good deeds from you.

The Fragile Vessels

Rights & Obligations Between the Spouses in Islam

This is one of a 3-book series covering various aspects of marriage according to the authentic Sunnah. Marriage plays a most central role in the human life, and has been largely discussed by the scholars of Islaam through the ages, resulting in numerous writings and treatises. Some of those writings, mostly by contemporary scholars, have been translated into English. However, we find them restricted in scope, addressing Muslims who live in predominantly Islaamic countries, or overlooking important real issues that have developed under modern civilization. This leaves quite a large gap that needs to be filled for the benefit of the Muslims in English-speaking countries, and this is what we attempt to fulfill over the span of three books."

Covers the obligations of the two spouses, the wife's rights, and the husband's rights. Contains biographies of the Mothers of the Believers, paints a very realistic picture from the life of the Prophet (pbuh) with his wives, and presents a complete discussion of the hadeeth of Ummar Zar'.
