By Muhammad 'Ali Qutb. Women entering the fold of Islam played prominent roles, side by side with their counterparts, in shaping and developing the Muslim society as a model from the onset, emancipating humanity, men and women, from the shackles of deep-rooted ignorance. Women in Islam have a very special place, status, and dignity. The life sketches of the early female believers, in this book, stand as beacons and outstanding models for the so-called "weaker sex" and call for the revival of the pristine, lofty, high position of women in the society once again.
