The significant social context of the major minority’ community in India needs no elaboration. That Muslims are more traditional than other communities has to be viewed in a historico-religious perspective and the role and status of women of Muslim faith in various countries of the world is the subject of numerous very scholarly and erudite works. The present publication attempts in a modest way to throw light on the several aspects of traditional Islamic views on matters pertaining to such vital aspects of women’s life as divorce, custody of children, support and maintenance after divorce, and the laws on property and inheritance. The book also highlights some relevant aspects of the role and status of women in the rural communities and marginalised groups in Bangladesh and Pakistan. The work would be of particular interest to students and researchers in the sociology of minority communities, as well as academicians, theologians and religious personages wishing to revisit and review the salient features of Islamic tradition and women.
