Why is it important?

The study is unique in illustrating the role of the Qur’ānic method in eliminating the concept of al-‘aṣabīyah in order to replace it with the broad concept of Muslim brotherhood which is based on shared creedal bonds by utilizing the processes of filtration and selection.


The study proved the theory that the new intellectual ideology of Islam based on wide-ranging equality between sexes, has led to an extraordinary socio-cognitive revolution. Additionally, many Muslim women emerged as scholars, and some played pivotal political and social roles during the Golden Age following the advent of Islam.
