One of the most controversial issues of our time is the rights of women in the world in general and in Islam and Islamic law in particular. The issue, for example, of wearing the Burka (the Hijab) by Muslim women in public places, schools, and in courts has made it recently to the front covers of most newspapers and magazines. Some countries have already banned the Burka in public places; others are reluctant for fear of limiting freedom and multiculturalism. But, what happens to a western woman who goes to a Muslim country, such as Saudi Arabia, where Islamic law (the Sharia) is applied? Is she allowed to wear a mini-skirt or a dress of her liking in public places? Or, is she able to wear a bikini on the beach?

Almost all Muslim scholars and writers, including women, have defended the position of women in Islam. While they draw their arguments on a very limited number of verses 

(Surah) in the Qur’an and Hadith, however, they take them out of their context in trying to prove that women under Islam are free and their human rights are protected.

This book shows how Islam has always considered women as inferior to men in every aspect: physically, intellectually, morally, and religiously. Their demise and denial of their basic rights are God sanctioned laws that every Muslim follows, not just ‘fundamentalists’. Indeed, the Qur’an remains for all Muslims, the uncreated word of God Himself. It is valid for all times and places; its ideas are absolutely true and beyond all criticism. To question it is to question the very word of God, and hence blasphemous. A Muslim’s duty is to believe it and obey its divine commands ... blindly.

This non-fiction book reveals the shocking truth about the real position of women in the Qur’an, the Hadith, in Islamic law (the Sharia) and how Islam is deeply anti-women. It reports the shocking truth of how women are denied their basic human rights in the Islamic law and ... in real life.
