    I picked up this book at the library thinking it was going to be really horribly puritanical. I assuming I would be reading about how I needed to never leave my home and live in complete purdah (seclusion) forever. I was very happily wrong! In fact, Dr. Hatem Al-Hajj presents a very good interpretation from the Quran and Sunnah on how men and women should interact with each other in our daily lives. We regularly go to college, to work, etc. as modern women and he recognizes that. In fact, he enc I picked up this book at the library thinking it was going to be really horribly puritanical.

I also like the side-by-side format of the English and Arabic so one may double check the translation if need be. I like that he presented both sides of what a wide variety of scholars have said on the interactions of men & women as well as his own perspective so it feels well-rounded by the end.

    Honestly enjoyed this read! I had been meaning to read the fiqh of male and female interaction for a while and found it difficult to find material that wasn’t either too liberal or very vague and gave the black and white answer of no it’s haram. It’s difficult to condense such a big topic, as well as the social situation in the west being very different to that of many Muslim countries where society essentially caters for the sharia. This was the only expansive book I managed to find on it Subha Honestly enjoyed this read! I had been meaning to read the fiqh of male and female interaction for a while and found it difficult to find material that wasn’t either too liberal or very vague and gave the black and white answer of no it’s haram. It’s difficult to condense such a big topic, as well as the social situation in the west being very different to that of many Muslim countries where society essentially caters for the sharia. This was the only expansive book I managed to find on it Subhanallah, by someone living in the west. Dr Hatem Al-Haj does an amazing job of compiling material from the Quran and Sunnah and books of the Salaf, and later scholars of Sunnah with regards to this. Scholars of the past were hesitant to give a black and white answer to it since the topic of ikhtilaat isn’t so straight forward and requires thorough analysis and is often very situational. He breaks the book down into various parts and addresses the evidences for the scholars who widen the scope of ikhtilaat and those who narrow it as well as giving his general interpretation of it avoiding personal opinions that aren’t influenced by Islamic evidence. I benefitted greatly from this and learnt some things about ikhtilaat at the time of the prophet (s.a.w) and how he dealt with it. It’s interesting to know how much of our attitudes towards it comes from culture and how much of it comes from Islam. Nevertheless, this book in no way promoted free mixing but rather gives you an in-depth insight into the topic as well as guidance on how to go about it. I give it 5/5 fr bc it was super insightful.
