Acquiring knowledge of Islam is incumbent upon every Muslim – male and female – in order to live one’s life according to the commands and recommendations of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of Allah’s Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). Naturally, women have some specific issues that concern them and that are different than those that concern all Muslims or only men. In Essential Rulings for Every Muslim Woman, well-known and respected Islamic scholars, both past and present, give their rulings on these issues. These rulings, or fatâwa, have been compiled and translated by Ibn Maqbool Husain. Of course, these religious verdicts are derived from the Qur’an and the Sunnah. This book is a compendium of such rulings in a question-and-answer format, catering to the special needs of the Muslim woman. It is a concise and readily accessible reference, and an invaluable addition to the Muslim woman’s personal library.
