This Month's Reading recommendations Slide We are now pleased to announce our first publication authored by Hisham Hauari. It is an engaging poem that tells the tale of mankind from the beginning to the present. Though a true history, it is fused with an Islamic account of some things that may not be historically demonstrable. The book evokes various emotions: a pleasure to read, interesting and also grim. The seeds of the idea to write an historical account of humanity had been sown in the author’s mind over a decade ago. The result is the culmination of a succinct book called The Chain.

Praise for the book:

“A poem of Miltonian proportions...”
Dr. Mahmoud Khalifa, South Valley University, Egypt

“I would invite the reader to enjoy and appreciate the poem The Chain and benefit from the wisdom that it contains.”
Dr. Mahmudul Hasan, Assoc. Prof., International Islamic University, Malaysia

REVISITING ‘WOMEN EMPOWERMENT’ VIS-À-VIS ISLAM

In his Islam in Historical Perspective, Alexander Knsyh (Routledge, 2017) has devoted a full chapter to the “Women in Islamic Societies” (pp. 323-340), because he believes that it is a “Controversial Topic” (p. 323), and thus needs more attention (than other contemporary issues). Knysh begins this chapter with this statement: “With the possible exception of so-called Islamic terrorism, it is difficult to find a subject that has generated more controversy in the modern Western media and public discourse than the status of women in Islamic societies
