Chapter Summary

There are currently some one billion three hundred thousand Muslims throughout the world, three hundred million of which are Arabs, which obviously means that a worldwide clearer understanding of Islam is essential. This book, relating to Muslim women and Islamic law, has filled an important gap in the more general Islamic law publications on the market today. The author experienced the workings and applications of the Shari'ah law, alongside modern legislation, not only in the Muslim world, but in Europe and the Americas, having appeared before courts all over the world, and I know only too well the problems that Muslims have to face, brought about in the main by lack of knowledge and understanding.

Keywords: Islamic law; Islamic legislation; Muslim women
