About The Book
This is a collection of lectures given specifically to women by Bediuzzaman Said Nursi. It also includes answers to questions sent by women to Bediuzzaman Said Nursi. In the author's words: "It is suggested that by some Hadiths that at the end of time, among women the truths of belief will hold an important place and to an extent the women will be preserved from the dangers posed by the misguidance of those times.
There is Hadith the meaning of which is: 'At the end of time follow the religion of the elderly women.' That is to say, the heartfelt sincerity of those champions of compassion, arising from their compassion, will be a means of saving them from perils of the hypocritical misguidance of those times. They will adhere steadfastly to Islam."
About The Author
Bediuzzaman Said Nursi was born a century ago, in 1873, in a village in eastern Anatolia, Nurs, from which he received the name Nursi. He received his basic education from the best-known scholars of the district. The extraordinary intelligence and capability of learning that he showed at a very early age made him popular with his teachers, colleagues and the people. When he was sixteen years old, he silenced the distinguished scholars who had invited him to a debate (debate was then a popular practice among scholars).
This later recurred several more times with various groups of scholars, and he thereby began to be called Bediuzzaman (Wonder of the Age). The time he spent in education paved the way in his mind for the thought that at a time when the world was entering a new and different age, where science and logic would prevail, the classical educational system of theology would not be sufficient to remove doubts concerning the Qur'an and Islam.
He concluded that religious sciences should be taught at modern schools on the one hand, and modern sciences at religious schools on the other. "This way," he said, "the people of the school will be protected from unbelief, and those of the madrasa from fanaticism." After completing a lifetime of almost a century, with every minute spent in the service of faith, Bediuzzaman Said Nursi departed from this world on the morning of March 23, 1960, with complete honor, dignity and victory, leaving behind him the Risale-i Nur Collection that would illuminate this and the forthcoming centuries and a love that would be handed over from generation to generation until eternity.
