Reclaiming the Mosque
The Role of Women in Islam's House of Worship
At a time when misogyny and hostile attitudes towards women are plaguing Muslim communities throughout the world, Dr Jasser Auda presents a timely and vital challenge to the contentious issue of women's access to the mosque, expounding an Islamic perspective.
Reclaiming The Mosque is a crucial response to the current trials facing Muslim communities, and moreover, it offers a clear and cohesive call to action that harks back to the Islamic principles of freedom, justice and human rights.

"Everyone needs this"
Finally a book that really shows how some people are wrong in thinking that women are not allowed in the masjid. Its so simple to follow, understand and I love how everything is backed up by hadiths. Every imam should be using this book during their khutbahs
