Suggested Reading #1: The Ideal Muslimah

I was over at Thoughts of a New Muslimah's blog and I came across this book suggestion.

The True Islamic Personality of the
Muslim Woman
by Dr. Muhammad Ali al-Hashimi

It is an available online as a PDF. I am in the process of reading it and will give you my thoughts as I go. Let me warn you ahead of time - I am a modern Muslim American woman. If I found the book to lay a negative light on Islamic women, I will let you know and if it does Islamic women justice, I will let you know as well.

Here is also a short PDF called the The Woman and Her Husband that I found as well. I have not read this one as well, but you will be sure I have my say.

I will post an analysis of these two readings in the next few weeks. Inshallah!
