Al-Muhaddithat: the Women scholars in Islam

An ebook  “Al-Muhaddithat: the Women scholars in Islam” by Mohammad Akram Nadwi can be downloaded from here.

This book was conceived as a translation of the Muqaddimah to an as yet unpublish biographical dictionary in Arabic of the women scholars of hadth in Islamic history. However, it was soon apparent that much of the orignal needed to be adopted, not simply translated.
