One thought on “Al-Muhaddithat: The Women Scholars in Islam

  1. Adam Taufique

    I really enjoyed this book Sh Muhammad Nadwi does an amazing job at showing how women would go neck and neck with men in preserving hadiths Their scholarship was not only respected, but even participated in the classes that women taught.The only negative I found from this book was that sometimes there are pages and pages of just names chains of narrators , which can get dry at times This motivated me to find out about each name in the chain and who they were.Overall, a very good read.

  2. Noor

    Shaykh Akram begins this book by stating that it is not an exercise in women s studies , although he does invite people to use the material presented for such studies It essentially serves as the introduction to his recently completed 53 volume biographical dictionary of female hadith scholars in Islam.This book shows abundantly that females have been involved in the scholarly tradition in Islam right from its inception not just for hadith, but extending to all sciences of Islam It was no revolu [...]

  3. Muahid mubashir

    ohThis scholarly work has many, i mean so many lengthy names of female scholars, their teachers,and the books they have studied and taught over period of time which refutes and rebukes those people who say Islam didn t allow women for higher studies.It is astonishing to know some women have traveled thousands of miles with their mahrams to gain knowledge.But I don t recommend it to a beginners in Islamic studies as i mentioned it has got so many Arabic names you will be bored with and eventually [...]

  4. Abu Kamdar

    As an introduction to a larger work, this book fulfills its objectively properly It raises interest in the topic, introduces key concepts, gives a brief summary and history, and most importantly gets the reader interested in the full research which I hope to read one day.

  5. Nadia Leona Yunis

    An awesome book that all Muslimah s need to read especially those who are students of knowledge of the Islamic Sciences

  6. Neelam

    This book is such an inspiring book for all people to read The countless women throughout islamic history that were independent empowered women, that contributed to society, that helped change society for the better is just amazing This book is a must read as it will help to dispel any belief that women are oppressed and denied an education in islam The only thing i will say is that you may find some of the language a bit difficult when it comes to names of people etc A book that you can refer b [...]

  7. Farraas Muhdiar

    Such a recommended read if you want to know about the role of women Muslim scholars in preserving the hadith and how Islam perceives value women since hundreds of years ago The book could be a bit challenging if you haven t read anything about Islamic studies before but I found it eye opening The long list of names in the book could be a bit annoying, but I think it s important to ensure the reliability of the message.

  8. Tuscany Bernier

    I LOVED this book I found out something new on almost every page and it helped me understand the oft forgotten history female scholarship in the Islamic world better I recommend this book to anybody with at least a basic understanding of Hadith though because he expects you understand most of the Arabic terms used D

  9. Asim Kazi

    Dr Nadwi discusses the many contributions made by female scholars and the importance of such scholarship in Islam.
