The book under discussion, Misali Khawtin, has been compiled with the same purpose, which contains mentions of the women of great note including the scholars, the reciteresses, the memorizers of the Holy Quran, the worshippers and the pious ones. Moulana Muhammad Ishaque has very wisely selected the articles from different authentic books for his collection. This book is a good guide both for women and men. He has reviewed that manuscript and suggested the improvements where needed.
This book is a reliable collection of articles on the life of the chosen mothers and daughters of the ummah including the wives and daughters of the Prophet Muhammad Sahabiyat, the Successors, the Followers and the Muhaddithat (reporters of Hadith). We read here also about the queens and the princess, courageous and the wise women. Inclusion of pious females of the recent past has made it more impressive for the young generation as the near past always looks closer and familiar as compared to the distant. Their stories tell how they saved themselves from indecent air of the society and got them highly placed.
