Full Description: Islam has always provided an incredibly flexible environment in which women may flourish and achieve their true potential. Looking back to the time of the prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, women were extremely active in all areas of life. The negative stereotype of the role of Muslim women, which is often trumpeted in the media, stems from ignorance of the reality of the position of women in Islam. This dictionary is a comprehensive reference source of women throughout Islamic history from the first century AH to roughly the middle of the thirteenth century AH. A perusal of the entries shows that Muslim women have been successful as, for example, scholars and businesswomen as well as Fulfilling their roles as wives and mothers for the past fourteen centuris. In an age when limiting perspectives have come to be the norm, this is a most timely work.
