$39.99
The System of Rights of Women in Islam by Martyr Ayatullah Murtaza Mutahhari is the revised version of The Rights of Women in Islam published over 40 years ago. The book presents a realistic picture of women's rights in Shi’ah Islam. Contrary to popular propaganda, the laws, teachings and practices of Islam provide a complete system for a dignified life for women. From before birth until the end of life, according to the teachings of Islam, women enjoy highly honourable status compared to men. Women not only enjoy the status of being centre of a family but also play a very important role in society. They are encouraged and supported to pursue higher education and be active in politics also. The topics discussed in the book include a historical review of women’s rights in different religions, cultures and societies with emphasis on modern western civilization and rights bestowed by Islam to women from the time of Prophet Muhammad (s). In addition, the author presents detailed discussion and Islamic views on the rights of women in society and family, including the right to education, inheritance, owning property, right to vote, equal employment opportunities, salaries and paid maternal leave, choosing a husband, getting married, motherhood, dower and maintenance, fixed-term marriage, permanent marriage, divorce, polygyny and other relevant topics. The author also criticizes unnatural, rigid and inhumane norms, laws and practices in different societies, cultures and religions against women. Especially, the modern liberal western societies where women are considered to be equal to men, but in reality, they are oppressed and exploited. It is hoped that this valuable book will be enlightening readers living in Western societies and clarify the prevalent misinformed and negative views about the status of women in Islam.
