This books goes over many important laws relating to women dealing with aspects of everyday life to special events. "The woman has been given a particular status in Islaam. Great importance is attached to her position, and the Prophet, may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him used to give special guidance to women, and left his guidance for them in his speech at 'Arafaat."
All praise be to Allaah who decreed and guided, and created the pairs, male and female, from a single drop. I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allaah, alone without partners in worship. All praise be to Him firstly and lastly. I bear witness that Muhammad is his servant and messenger; he was raised to the heavens and shown the great Signs of his Lord. May the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him, his family and companions, the virtuous, and the people of intellect.
The woman has been given a particular status in Islaam. Great importance is attached to her position, and the Prophet, may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him used to give special guidance to women, and left his guidance for them in his speech at 'Arafaat. These points prove that it is compulsory to pay special attention to women at all times, and in particular today, when the Muslim woman has been singled out for attack, in order to deprive her of her nobility and status. It is therefore incumbent to warn women of these dangers and explain to them the path of success. I hope this book will be a pointer to this path, as it contains some of the Islaamic laws specific to woman. The book is a small contribution; a small effort and I hope that Allaah makes it beneficial despite its smallness. The book is the first step on this path after which, it is hoped, greater and more expansive steps are taken to achieve what is better.
