approach and a reminder that Islam has held women as highly esteemed and

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

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 (SWT), 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 (PBUH). Her ideals are the wives of the Messenger
The reader will find all this and much more in this book, which Dr.
Hashmi wrote in a Arabic and was also broadcast on Riyadh Radio.
