About this deal

Muslim Women on Life in Britain edited by Sabeena Akhtar (Unbound), Mapping Faith: Theologies of Migration edited by Lia Shimada (Jessica Kingsley), and Violent Phenomena: 21 Essays on Translation edited by Kavita Bhanot and Jeremy Tiang (Tilted Axis). Most of our PDFs are also available to download and we're working on making the final remaining ones downloadable now. Aishah is considered to be one of the greatest scholars, providing insights into the Prophet's actions.

The commentary written by Rehman really captures the essence of Aishah's character and how her narrations can be translated and applied to our daily life. For the average reader, this book is a beneficial addition to any bookshelf, and increases one's love for Allah's Messenger and his beloved wife, A'ishah (radhiAllahu 'anha). My son will also be reading as we keep telling him of all the insightful information that is in this little book. This book compiles 40 of her insights and statements in the categories of Qur’anic exegesis (tafsīr), Jurisprudence (Fiqh), Theology (ʿaqīdah), Politics (siyāsah) and Heart Softeners (al-raqā’iq) with commentary for the contemporary Muslim seeking spiritual and moral direction as they traverse through daily life and its challenges and possibilities.This book compiles 40 of her insights and statements in the categories of Qur'anic exegesis (tafsir), Jurisprudence (Fiqh), Theology ('aqidah), Politics (siyasah) and Heart Softeners (al-raqa'iq) with commentary for the contemporary Muslim seeking spiritual and moral direction as they traverse through daily life and its challenges and possibilities. Dr Sofia Rehman is an independent scholar of Islam trained both traditionally in Syria, Tukey and Wales, and through academia whose PhD focused on the statements of Aisha Bint Abi Bakr as recorded in the work of the 14th century scholar, Imam al-Zarkashi. I got the Kindle version, but I have seen the hardback and I think it’s worth owning that (and for that matter, the others in this series from Kube Publishers).

The hadiths are accompanied by Sofia’s commentary, which often addresses the problems with past, and present-day patriarchal attitudes that have been paraded as “religion. I love that the book also addresses a modern-day Muslim readership, with phrases like “throwing shade” and discussions on the dangers of the clout-chasing, “snap-caption-post-repeat” lifestyle that focuses so much on “filtering” life at the risk of neglecting the states of our hearts. An introduction to one of the most admired women in Islamic history with accompanying commentaries, presented in a beautiful gift format.At times, for example, she might be commenting on a particular Hadith and then breaks the fourth wall and addresses the reader directly and makes a du’a. I particularly enjoyed reading ‘A’ishah’s correction of a hadith pertaining to the purification “ghusl” shower.

Mernissi also attacks Abu Hurayra and by extension the science of hadith, and has said in her work “even the authentic Hadith must be vigilantly examined with a magnifying glass. I hope that it lands as a book of comfort, generosity and welcome for those who are seeking meaning and guidance. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. There was an unsubstantiated underlying accusation of misogyny towards some of the male companions, and Abu Hurayra (ra) is presented as someone questionable who can’t be trusted, casting a shadow on the character of the most prolific hadith narrator. There is so much about Aisha (RA) that I did not know despite reading about her life over the years.This book deviates from the traditional trappings of so many books on women in Islam that merely stress the importance of obedience, chastity and child-raising.
