Below is the introduction by the major scholar Ash-Shaykh Muqbil Bin Haadee Al-Waadi’ee Rahimahullaah.
“I am familiar with what the author, Umm Salamah bint ‘Alee Al-‘Abaasee has written entitled Al-Intisaaru li Huqooqee al- Mu’minaat (supporting the rights of the believing women). I found it to be a beneficial book, as it contains verses from the Book of Allah and traditions from the Messenger of Allaah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The Qur’aan and the Sunnah are beneficial knowledge. Whoever does not seek guidance from then will not find guidance in anything else as our Lord subhaanahu wa ta’ala says:
”In what other speech except Allah and His proofs will you believe?” (sooratul-Jaathiyyah 45:6)
She performed a great duty in selecting the topic of the believing women’s rights. Many people are neglectful in this area, or they leave it off altogether. Therefore, she reminded the fathers, close male family members, and husbands about what Allah has made obligatory upon them, as well as what He has strongly suggested for them to do. Allaah subhaanahu wa ta’ala says:
”Oh you who believe, save yourselves and your family from a fire which is fueled by men and stones.” (sooratut-Tahreem 66:6)
Verily in the author are gathered some praiseworthy traits: these include abstaining from worldly pleasures, exemplary character, spreading beneficial knowledge, and not wasting her time. She spends her time by herself in the women’s library, substitute teaching for Umm ‘Abdillaah Al-Waadi’iyyah when she is absent, and effective lecturing.
Verily the islamic community is in great need of righteous women who can care for their Muslim sisters so that the corrupted and corrupting callers do not lead them astray. The wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as well as the female companions played a major role in spreading the prophetic traditions.
In conclusion, I advise the author and her sisters to make a great effort in spreading beneficial knowledge from the Noble Qur’aan, the prophetic traditions, and the ‘Arabic Language, to become knowledgable in Allaah’s Religion, to place an importance on spreading that knowledge by writing and inviting to Allaah, and teaching the ignorant women. If Allaah guides one woman by your hand, it is better for you than a red camel.
May Allah firmly establish us all on what He loves and pleases Him.
Aboo ‘Abdir-Rahmaan Muqbil bin Haadee Al-Waadi’ee.
