This publication from the Shaykh Rabee' Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee (May Allaah preserve him upon good), is an extraordinarily beneficial book. The Shaykh deals with the issue of the rights of men and women based on a seminar that was held by some women in Jedda, Saudi 'Arabia who claimed their rights were withheld. This publication is a refutation upon those who make this claim, as well as a description of the rights given to men and women in Islaam, the loftiness of women's rights in Islaam over that of those in the West, and the women of other religions such as Christianity, Judaism, and Hinduism.
We hope that these comparisons will help the reader reflect upon the blessing that Allaah has truly given us. We found it shocking to see the degradation that women of disbelief endure from the deviant ones from both their homelands and religions. The Religion of Islaam is perfect, although its adherents are not. The evil that some do should not reflect upon Islaam, rather it is a deficiency of an individual(s). However, we have found that the degradation and exploitation of women of disbelief is in the roots of their belief systems, and societal practices.
