Great Women in Islam "Great Women in Islam" is the second English book by Dr. Tareq Al-Suwaidan. This book provides a foundation of understanding on the role of women in Islam and tackles common misconceptions on the subject. Not only does it discuss the roles of women in marriage and among their families – but also their roles as warriors, worshipers, scholars and callers to Islam. It gives its readers a guided explanation as each role is accompanied with stories of great women as told in the Quran and Hadith. We narrate the stories of about fifty great women whose names and exemplary behavior are enshrined in the history of Islam.
