Title : Women in Islam

Description :
The Women in Islam web page presents a number of articles explaining the position of Muslim women in Islamic society. It attempts to correct many of the stereotypes and misconceptions that non-Muslims have about the attitudes towards women sanctioned by Islam, and to justify Islamic principles in relation to those held by 'The West'. The content of the site includes essays on: the ideal Muslimah (Muslim woman); the teachings regarding women in the Qur'an and Sunnah; women in society; women's status in marriage; and the Hijab (veil). Most of the articles are clear and reasonably objective. There is nevertheless the occasional over- generalisation as to what is considered acceptable by 'Western Society'. Nevertheless, this site should provide a useful introduction to non-Muslims seeking to understand this topical aspect of the Islamic faith.
