This work is APPROVED by Al-Azhar University in Cairo.

This exceptional and thorough study is of interest to everyone, as it deals with a primal and universal relationship. It is also an important work for Muslim women, their children and for scholars with a particular interest in the status of women in Islam.
Dr. Aliah Schleifer relies on the basic sources of Islam -- the Qur'an, Hadith, and Fiqh, as well as numerous original Arabic sources.

Use is made of tafseer, or commentary, of Al Tabari, Al Qurtubi, and Ibn Kathir, thus providing an overview of classical exegeses which include fiqh representing the schools of opinion existing at that time and juridical rulings. Hadith concerning motherhood in Islam are central to the book and emphasis is given to the Sahihain of al-Bukhari and Muslim.

Great care was taken with checking the authenticity and accuracy of all the hadith. Generally, more has been written about the contemporary Muslim woman and society, often contrasting her life with that of Western women, rather than investigation made of the formal Islamic bases of her status.

Dr. Aliah Schleifer an American Muslim lived, studied and worked in the Middle East for thirty years. Her interests and publications in the field of Islamic Studies range from the classical commentaries on the Qur’an, the prophetic traditions and Islamic jurisprudence, to Morisco Studies and Islamic mysticism. Dr. Schleifer was a professor for many years at the American University in Cairo.


'for thy Sustainer has ordained that you shall worship none but Him. And do good unto [thy] parents. Should one of them, or both, attain to old age in thy care, never say 'Ugh' to them or scold them, but [always] speak unto them with reverent speech
{TM Qur'an Al-Isra (The Journey by Night) 17:23}

A man once asked the Prophet to whom he should show the most kindness. The Prophet replied: "Your mother, next your mother, next your mother, and then your father.
