In this Book, the writer has discussed the Social independence of women, modern life and Islam, women in Qur’an, family rights, differences between men and women, inheritance, divorce, mut’a, and polygamy.
The book is the English translation of original Persian book titled: “woman and Hijab”. The author presents woman’s position in the preIslamic and Islamic era.
In this research, I will endeavor to commit myself sincerely to taking these principles as a basis for analyzing and studying the subjects set for speculation. The themes of this book have been divided into six sections, the first of which, that is the most essential one and as is explicitly realized from its outward seeming, is dedicated for manifesting the character of the woman. In my conception, the root of so many of the wrong judgments lies in the unrealistic view held in regard of the woman, so the fountainhead should be purified. On this basis, this chapter has a leading role in relation to other chapters. Thereafter, presence and activity of the woman in three main areas of life: individual, family and society, will be discussed and elaborated in the next chapters – two up to four under the titles: “The Human Perfections,” “Woman and Family,” and “Woman’s Participation in Social Life. The last chapter of this book will contain selection of Descriptive Book Identification of Collections, in which general identification of a number of collections and compilations is recorded.
