Waterstones Says

With page after page of revelatory information on women largely unheralded in the West, Kamaly’s important compendium of influential female Muslims is a timely reminder of the faith’s pioneers. Spanning centuries and continents, A History of Islam in 21 Women is a diverse, sweeping volume that highlights religious piety alongside technological innovation.

Beginning in seventh-century Mecca and Medina, A History of Islam in 21 Women takes us around the globe, through eleventh-century Yemen and Khorasan, and into sixteenth-century Spain, Istanbul and India. From there to nineteenth-century Persia and the African savannah, to twentieth-century Russia, Turkey, Egypt and Iraq, before arriving in present-day Europe and America.

From the first believer, Khadija, and the other women who witnessed the formative years of Islam, to award-winning architect Zaha Hadid in the twenty-first century, Hossein Kamaly celebrates the lives and groundbreaking achievements of these extraordinary women in the history of Islam.
