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

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!
