Who is the ideal Muslim woman? In defining what an ideal Muslimah’s character would look like, there are a few key attributes which separate her from the average woman. The Qur’an also defines specific characteristics that distinguish her from her male counterpart in the way that she worships her Lord and she lives her life.
Entailed in this book are verses from the Qur’an and examples from Prophet Muhammad (blessing and peace of Allah be upon him) to help guide the Muslim woman towards the righteous path of Allah. This book is truly a precious gift to give your sister, daughter, wife or friend. From the translator, Nasiruddin al-Khattab: The ideal Muslimah is proud of the great position that Islam has given her among humanity.
She performs her duties knowing that her role is clearly defined and that her rights are still, even today, greater than what any other ideology has provided. She is a woman of moral excellence, true to her nature, not confused by sinful or morally bankrupt ideas. She preserves her self-respect and dignity through her piety in obedience to Allah the Almighty and his Messenger (blessing and peace of Allah be upon him). She is the role model that every believer hopes to emulate.
This comprehensive work by Dr. al-Hashimi is a valuable contribution to our readers, who will find the knowledge contained therein truly beneficial and inspiring.
The sources of Islam i.e. the Holy Qur’an and the Prophetic Traditions have always spoken of the women’s rights and made them full partners in the human venture of history more than any other religion or thought. Women in Islam are; mothers, sisters, partners, workers, scholars and business owners and managers. etc. Though this book outlines the ideal Muslimah personality as it should be according to the Qur’an and Sunnah Husbands, sons and daughters will also draw very much benefit from it.
A true Muslimah is the one who is alert, knowledgeable, true to herself as well as to others. She is righteous, and faithful. She balances her obligations to Allah , her parents and children. She does not excel in one thing and neglect the other. She is a Qur’anic example to follow-, she is a woman whose examples to follow are the she-companions of the Messenger ﷺ. Her ideals are the wives of the Messenger ﷺ.
The reader will find all this and much more in this book, which Dr. Hashmi wrote in an Arabic and was also broadcast on Riyadh Radio. This is his second book I.I.P.H translated into English. We hope the readers will find it really informative and comprehensive and pray Allah (SWT) for the best reward for them and ourselves. May the peace and blessing of Allah (SWT) be upon Muhammad ﷺ his household and all his companions.
