This is the "women's lib" age as the West preform to term it. But is it true? Is it not a lip-service age turning women practically to "dolls" or something like "real-life dolls"?
Women entering the fold of Islam played an enviable prominent role, side by side their counterparts, in shaping and developing the Muslim society as a model from the onset, emancipating humanity, men and women, from the shackles of deep-rooted ignorance. Women in Islam have a very special place, status, and dignity that is unknown to mankind before or after.
