SUMMARY

This book does not pretend that the society of Islam was dominated by women, but illustrates that the world from the classical period to modern times is also a woman's world. Here we have tales of A'isha, who joined the forces of early followers of Muhammad in the disastrous Camel Battle; the fighter Umm Omara, who lost a hand in battle; the scholar of mysticism and freed slave Rabi'a al-Adawiyya; Khayzuran, the richest and most powerful woman; the poet Wallada, daughter of the Spanish Khalif. It interweaves the history of Islam with the role of Muslim women in traditional Islamic countries.Walther, Wibke is the author of 'Women in Islam/from Medieval to Modern Times', published 1993 under ISBN 9781558760530 and ISBN 1558760539.
