"Dr. Daisy Khan meticulously illustrates that through the Qur'an, Hadith, and Islamic scholarship faith and gender equality can be achieved." --Mehnaz M. Afridi, PhD, professor of religious studies, Manhattan College"Daisy Khan's insightful and inclusive 30 Rights of Muslim Women offers a bridge between faith communities, enriching our collective understanding of Muslim women's rights and encouraging a harmonious coexistence rooted in shared humanity." --Cristina Smith, interfaith minister, author of The December Dozen: A Celebration of Holidays "A comprehensive compendium on women in Islam, providing readers with an encyclopedic reference to the most pressing of topics. Easy to follow and accessible." --His Eminence Imam Dr. Mohamad Jebara, former Chief Imam, and author of The Life of the Quran and Muhammad the World-Changer"Daisy Khan's 30 Rights of Muslim Women: A Trusted Guide uniquely questions, protests, and examines the various layers of meaning and practice of gender injustice. By linking historical legacies to contemporary Muslim women's scholarship and activism, she empowers each woman to self-identify with Qur'anic justice and fairness. Khan affirms women's spiritual leadership by providing new perspectives of the Qur'an, while debunking misinterpreted traditions attributed to Prophet Muhammad. She explores women's realities, embarking with them upon a journey of restoring their own rights and transforming their own lives." --Nimat Hafez Barazangi, author of Woman's Identity and the Qur'an: A New Reading"As a religious woman, I consider 30 Rights of Muslim Women, an essential read for anyone who cares about religion today. It has opened my eyes and strengthened my heart. Khan writes as a Muslim woman to other Muslim women, teaching how localized patriarchies have denied Muslim women and young girls their fundamental rights guaranteed to them by the sacred texts of Islam. Khan brings deep knowledge and an abundance of courage to this confrontation." --Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, Congregation Beit Simchat Torah
