This collection of papers presents an interesting study on the problems faced by Muslim women in India. The book begins with the changing status of Muslim women and goes on to analyze the evolution of Shari'a- the canon law of Islam and it interpretation in today's social context.

Other problems dealt with include he controversial aspects of Muslim divorce laws in India as compared with he changing legislation related to talaq in other Islamic countries, and the right to inheritance which is seldom observed in practice even though the Quran grants woman his right. However, with education and greater awareness of the Muslim Personal Law, women are no loner prepared to be exploited and this has led to an emergence of a number of women's movements.
