  • Great book for any Muslim woman or non-Muslim wanting to know the guidelines for Muslim women. I find myself going back to this book for reference from time to time when I have a question about something.


  • A simple, introductory guide to women specific guidance in Islam. I enjoyed the authors tone and also that the book was based on living in Western societies, mostly suited to Muslim women in the U.K. It covers the main areas and may be useful for newly practising Muslims or young women who want a reference guide.


  • I read this as a non-Muslim attempting to better understand Muslim culture. I do now have a better understanding of the way of life for Muslim women, but I also found it to be perhaps outdated? I felt that it was a subtle way of encouraging separatism between Muslims and non-Muslims which in today's society we should surely be striving for inclusion and acceptance. In the twenty years since this was written I think the role of Muslims in Britain has changed significantly.


  • This is actually a pretty good introduction to Islam for women - it doesn't go into detail (I understood from the intro that this was genuinely an intro to whet people's palates for more), but was still good for outlining the basic concepts.Good read especially for those outside the Middle East who make have the 'wrong impression' of what Islam as a religion is and firmly puts in place what it really is to be a Muslim woman.


  • Really helpful and simply to use. Covers almost all aspects of life, with to the point advice supported by Ahadith and Qur'anic verses. Not just good for reverts/converts but also useful to any Muslim women who wants her lifestyle to be according to Islam.



  • I read this book as part of research for a project, and as an attempt to understand Islam better. Not sure how in date, or legit, most of this advice is.


  • Being told to laugh quietly in public or in front of men?The whole thing is more or less shocking and very insulting to women.
