    This is a small book with an excellent overview of the major issues related to Muslim women and their relationship with places of worship in Islam. The book also goes beyond this main theme to cover other background topics such as what it means to call something “Islamic". In addition, it touches on some controversial issues concerning women in Islam such as child marriage and women leadership. The book is divided into 20 short chapters, each answering one question.

The book also goes beyond this main theme to cover other background topics such as what it means to call something “Islamic". In addition, it touches on some controversial issues concerning women in Islam such as child marriage and women leadership. The book is divided into 20 short chapters, each answering one question. Some of the questions being answered are "On what basis do some Muslims prevent women from entering mosques?", "Can women lecture men in the mosque? " and "Is women's leadership forbidden by hadith?", etc. Dr. Auda's writings enjoy both clarity and scholarly depth. I recommend this book to both men and women particularily those activley involved in Muslim institutions.

    The first book that I've completed during summer holiday. It reminds me again on why Prof Dr Jasser Auda is one of the important scholars in this contemporary world that we're living in. Rarely you see a male scholar emphasizes on women's issues. But he did it in his own way. And when I said that, I meant this book and some of his talks on women's issues.

Reclaiming the Mosque discusses about many topics on women in the light of Quran and Sunnah. I would say this book is simple to read and understand as there is small amount of academical phrases or jargons that he used. And of course, he still presents his ideas and debates based on Quran, hadith or some scholars views. So the references are reliable and it does not merely comes from his opinions. Some of the important issues that were discussed in this book includes: 1. Are women allowed to go to the Masjid? Eventhough this issue might not seem important in this country as we allow women to go masjid, however, in certain countries, the men didnt allow women to go to Masjid due to 'religious purpose' when there is no clear hadith or practise of the Prophet that disallow women to come to the house of Allah. Besides, Dr. Jasser Auda also clarifies certain hadith about the preference of women to pray at home in which the hadith was taken out of context by several Muslim scholars. So I applaud him for his efforts. 2. Are women allowed to lead the prayer with male presence? The discussion of hadith in this area quite interesting too. 3. Are women allowed to give talk or tazkirah to the male audience? (loving the cover of this book by the way, it is actually a photo of Dr. Heba Raouf teaching at Sultan Hassan Mosque, Cairo) 4. Does menstruation prohibits women from entering mosques, reading Quran or performing tawaf? All of these important women issues were discussed in this book and I highly encouraged everyone to read it!

    Amazing! Every Muslim woman who believes that the mosque is the place where men should pray and that women have little to no place in it because "praying at home is better" *needs* to read this. It would also be great if every mosque board who spread this attitude read this but I am a firm believer of empowering ourselves with the knowledge first because it is only then that the attitudes in the community will start changing. This book goes hand in hand with Sheikh Akram Nadwi's book on "Ibn Ḥazm Amazing!

This book goes hand in hand with Sheikh Akram Nadwi's book on "Ibn Ḥazm on the lawfulness of women attending prayers in the mosque".

    Simple to read. A book that challenges the popular hadiths that seem to limit women's permission to participate in mosque life, with other hadiths which have no doubt, been hidden from us by scholars wanting to push a certain patriarchal narrative.

    This is perhaps one of the most NB books I've read all year. May Allah be pleased with its author.
