HASH(0xaa1bef60) out of 5 stars A groundbreaking resource June 26 2011
By Saad Ansari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Dr. Nadwi employs the greatest mode of persuasion; not an argument through emphasizing a few exemplary cases, but rather clear demonstration by compiling a 40-volume dictionary containing the biographies of about 8,000 women scholars in the field of Hadith, Prophetic narration.

In Islamic tradition, sacred knowledge is considered the highest form of authoritative currency, with its scholars being heirs of Prophet himself. We're shown that involvement in this most esteemed of spheres by women was not an exception, but rather a norm.

This book, which is the English translation of the introduction of the dictionary, adeptly and eloquently introduces general concepts in hadith studies and Islamic scholarship, and briefly explains some specific cases in Islamic law as well, through explaining the women scholars of hadith.

Being a dictionary, it is recommended for use for even further research and synthesis into essays.

For leaders of Muslim communities, parents, and students of Islamic knowledge (male or female), it's highly recommended.
