The Muslim Family and the Woman's Position
Abd al-Halim Abu Shuqqah
Adil Salahi (translation)
Women's Emancipation during the Prophet's Lifetime, Volume 7
In volume 7, the author highlights the rights relevant to marriage. These include the right of all young men and women to early marriage. They are entitled to state help to achieve this. We learn in this volume that the woman has the full right to choose her husband and the right to terminate her marriage. The author lays strong and needed emphasis on the fact that Islam gives men and women equal rights in their marriage and family life. As he discusses divorce and polygamy, he stresses the Islamic manners and controls that apply to both.
