Al-Muhaddithat: The Women Scholars in Islam By M Akram Nadwi€25.50
This book is an adaptation of the Muqaddimah or Preface to Mohammad Akram’s 40-volume biographical dictionary (in Arabic) of the Muslim women who studied and taught hadith. It demonstrates the central role women had in preserving the Prophet’s teaching, which remains the master-guide to understanding the Qur’an as rules and norms for life. Within the bounds of modesty in dress and manners, women routinely attended and gave classes in the major mosques and madrasas, travelled intensively for ‘the knowledge’, transmitted and critiqued hadith, issued fatwas, etc. Some of the most renowned scholars among men have depended on, and praised, the scholarship of their women teachers. The women scholars enjoyed considerable public authority in society, not exceptionally, but as the norm.
The huge body of information reviewed in al-Muhaddithat is essential to understanding the role of women in Islamic society, their past achievement and future potential. Hitherto it has been so dispersed as to be ‘hidden’. Akram’s dictionary will greatly facilitate further study, contextualization and analysis.
The cover shows the study journeys of Fatimah bint Sa`d al-Khayr, and a few of her principal teachers and students. Her family moved from Valencia to the western edge of China; she died in Cairo in 600 AH. (Full map and details in ch. 3.)

From the rich, Islamic heritage, true and inspiring stories highlighting aspects of the lives of 60 Companions including outstanding women.
This is one of two books that provides a lively introduction to early Muslim history and inspiring models for Muslim values, attitudes and behaviour.

Their various paths to Islam – sometimes direct, sometimes long and tortuous, their devotion to the noble Prophet (s), their hope in God and in the life to come, their endeavours in peace and in times of hardship and struggle – all serve to cast them in a heroic mould.
The Sahabah or Companions of the Prophet (s) helped to lay the foundations of a new world order and it is fitting that they should be more widely known.
This is the second of two books based on the original Arabic sources and written in a style that is lively and often gripping.
These two books are based on original Arabic sources and contemporary writings on early Muslim history.
