Al-Muhaddithaat: The Women Scholars in Islam
“An Indepth Study of a Female Scholar of Each Century from the 1st Century till the Present Day will be Examined, The First of its Kind!”
Within the bounds of modesty in dress and manners, women routinely attended and gave classes in the major mosques and Islamic schools, travelled intensively for “the knowledge” transmitted and critiqued hadith, issued fatwas, etc. Some of the most renowned scholars among men have depended on, and praised, the scholarship of their women teachers.

Testimonials on the works of Shaykh Muhammad Akram Nadwi:
“Our son, the scholar, the researcher, the verifier, Shaykh Akram Nadwi…Allah inclined the distinguished brother, the eminent scholar [bahhatha] Muhammad Akram, hafizahullah [may Allah preserve him], to arrange this work, therefore he attended to the service of the book, through verification, explanatory remarks, elucidation and identification of sources…Indeed, this effort which our honourable brother, the Shaykh Akram Nadwi took pains to achieve, through the effort of capability and worthy of thanks, for Allah and for people, has given life to the book, overcome its difficulties, opened its locks, illuminated its path, and facilitated it for the students…”
Shaykh Yusuf Qaradawi, in his endorsing preface to Shaykh Akram’s edition of Usul al-Shashi
“Akram's zeal for knowledge reminds you of the Prophetic saying: ‘Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) said: There are two avaricious people who are never content: one greedy of knowledge who is never content and the other greedy of the world (worldly riches and that of power) who is never content’” (Bayhaqi transmitted in Shu'ab al-Iman).
Shaykh Yunus Jaunpuri (teacher of Sahih al-Bukhari for over twenty years at Maza’ir al-‘Ulum, Saharanpur, India)
“Shaykh Muhammad Akram Nadwi, a venerable Allamah: he has sacrificed his life for knowledge, either studying or teaching, then Allah Most High decreed him fit for writing.”
Shaykh Muhammad Ya’qubi (former preacher at the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus), in his endorsing preface to Shaykh Akram’s Ayyam fi balad al-sham
