Purdah and the Status of Women in Islam

The modern world has gradually headed away from the way of nature towards unnatural paths that are inevitably leading to the annihilation of the human race itself. This is the English rendering of Maulana Abul Ala Maududi's famous work 'Purdah', which was originally published in book form in 1939. It has since run through thirteen reprints and has deeply influenced vast sections of the reading public in the Indo-Pakistan sub-continent. This book, more than any other, has in recent years helped people to understand clearly the nature of the correct relationship between man and woman in the social life, and appreciate the great design that Nature wills to fulfil through them on the earth.
