The experiences of Muslim women vary widely between and within different societies. At the same time, their adherence to Islam is a shared factor that affects their lives to a varying degree and gives them a common identity that may serve to bridge the wide cultural, social, and economic differences between them.

    No one denies that the modesty which is commanded by Islamic Law and by convention includes the decency and decorousness demanded of a woman, and the kind of behavior that will ensure that she is kept far away from situations of temptation and suspicion. Further more, there is no doubt that the greatest act of modesty that she can perform is to wear the hijab, which covers her face. It is the best thing with which she can adorn herself, because it protects her and keeps her far removed from temptation.

    This is an autobiography presented by Iman Daglas, an American woman who was Christian before, illustrating the ethical and moral values of Islam in the perspective of current tussle between materialism and the search for truth and eternal peace. It is led to believe that Islam has repressed women…… that in Islam women are second-class citizens, and they have no rights…. while Islam is the first religion to give women their rights, and this book clearly proves that a Muslim woman wearing proper Hijab is truly a well-guarded treasure.

Women also need knowledge to fulfil their duties in accordance with the teachings of Islam, but they find it difficult to seek the knowledge because of moral conditions and modesty restrictions. This book is published for the same purpose of providing knowledge to women as regards matters of faith, acts of worship, details about purification, problems of marriage and divorce, and other important issues that relate to women.

    It is not a matter of controversy in Islam that mingling between men and women is prohibited or not. Rather it is a distinguishing feature of Islamic culture that men and women should remain separate and perform their duties in a most obliging manner. People who have insight know very well that mingling of men with women is the root cause of many evils that can arise afterwards. The family ties, the relations between husband and wife, the children and other matters can all easily be disturbed as a result of mingling of men with women. It is natural that men and women are attracted to each other. Islam has provided the legal way for both men and women to marry each other and maintain a family by raising their children. Islam has also imposed some rights on each other in respect of husband, wife and children so that all of them should care about the others and hold strong ties which consist of love, faith and affiliation. But this very purpose is disturbed when the mingling between men and women takes place freely, and the most to suffer as a consequence are the women and children, and they feel deserted. Therefore, it is in the interest of women that they should care about the occasions when such thing could arise. The same prohibition implies that men should also restrain themselves because it is also in their interest to refrain from such mingling which can disturb them mentally and physically later on. We should bear in mind’that we are to abide by the commandments of Islam which holds all that is good for us. May Allah help us all to keep on the path of faith.
